My Reviews

NextVid Stopper for YouTube

Does not work if in fullscreen Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This extension will not stop the next video in a predefined playlist from playing if the video is in full screen mode! This is a pain. The extension works fine if you are not viewing the video in fullscreen.

Forecast Plus

Pretty good weather extension Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I see the weather alerts option is on the to do list which is good since it will be more of visible indicator there is bad weather on the way. Unlike some oether reviews I will not compare this to another well known but abandoned Firefox weather addon.

Developers should be appreciated for all the hard work they put into developing addons and for all the guff they sometimes have to put up with from people who expect problems to be solved at a drop of the hat.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.2.1-signed). 

Forecastfox Weather

So long old friend :( Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It is sad to see an extension that I have used over the years become abandoned. Sure there are work arounds for getting the extension to display but the inabiity to change the settings is a sore point. You are still saddled with a extension that seems to be cast adrift.

I can sympathize with the developer though as end users can become pushy at times wanting something fix ASAP even though the extension is free.

So long Forecastfox I will miss you

Iconic Firefox Menu

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Does what it suppose to do. Been using it for the betas and now RC1 for FFox 4. Notice the icon is overlapping the first tab.

Snip-n-Tag

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Does not work in FFox 4b12. Have no option to use Goo.gl acct, and no icon anywhere including right mouse click.

Shorten URL (Bit.ly)

Frustrating addon Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Thought that this addon would work and accidentially discovered that it inserts tool bar icons that one can drag to the toolbar. However w FFox 4b7 the Win7 clipboard is not being update after numerous attempts on multiple websites.Tried it in 4b8 and it works fine. Thing that is missing in all of these url shorteners is the ability to copy the page title as well as the shortened url. Makes it handy when posting links so that people know what the link is about.

Forecastfox Weather

At least offers Canadian info Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Really would like the ability to see weather warnings like tornadoes in the applet. Also really miss the configurability of information being prresented in the addon that was available in the pre Fox 3.6 versions.

1-ClickWeather

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

If you are in Canada and want weather alerts for your area forget about 1 click weather as it is US centric for alerts.

Forecastfox Weather

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I have no problems at all with the addon. However the data being received from accuweather is sorely lacking weather watches/warnings such as tornado watches.

CheckPlaces

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Problem with this addon is that there is no control on which duplicate it should delete unless you go through it manually.

Xmarks Sync

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

- MyXMarks web interface is slow. It takes at least 10 secs for it load on a 15Mbps connection to the internet.

- Without a way of importing all my bookmarks and their corresponding tags from Delicious this addon is useless to me. Their API import option only does your top 100 Delicious bookmarks importation.

- The search capability is horrible as well. You have to use Firefox built in bookmark search capability and there is now way to search only on tags not titles. The result is the xmarks bookmarks show up buried amongst all of the other bookmarks.

CustomizeGoogle

Amazing customizing for Google Rated 4 out of 5 stars

One of the options is to allow HTTPS connections by default for GMail. A must for those who are using unsecured wireless connections to check and read their GMail email prevents other people from snoopping.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.63). 

IE Tab

View websites designed for Internet Explorer in FireFox Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Must have addon that allows you to view websites that were designed for MS Internet Explorer.

Adblock Filterset.G Updater

Keep the ads at bay Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Silently update the filtersets that Adblock Plus uses to keep the ads undercontrol. Allows addition of filters manually.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.1.1). 

Adblock Plus

Cut down the annoying ads Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Ads be gone! In conjunction with Adblock Filterset.G Updater keeps most of those annoying ads under control.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.5.1). 

NoScript Security Suite

Keeps the unnecessary scripts under control Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This addon really shows you how many scripts a web site runs when you visit their web site. Allows you to select only the necessary scripts to run. Very frequently updated.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.7.2). 

MyStickies

Ebayers stay away from this addon Not yet rated

This addon does not work properly with an ebay item page. One can not add a stickie to the page. Also with ebay if you trying to win an auction I would stay clear of this addon since even with it disable it still insists on going out to mystickies.com for some unexplained reason. This causes the reloading of the ebay page to be slow which will result in a missed oportunity to bid just like I experienced.
