Facebook issues Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This app is amazing and simple - once you figure out how to use it. I agree that it isn't quite straightforward. It takes some playing around to get to define what you want it to do.
However, the app doesn't work too flawlessly with Facebook. Since the site loads new info constantly, a simple "Auto-replace on page load" does not cover the incoming text from scrolling down to load new stories. Selecting "Auto-replace every X seconds" fixes this... but the issue with backwards writing is still present. Not sure if a new release was issued since this was addressed in Feb 2016 (I installed this on my new computer around May 1st), but just wanted to let you know the issue is still here.
Utterly incomprehensible Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I want to stop seeing two or three particular words on the internet. Not hard, you would think.
This is supposed to be able to do that.
But it is utterly incomprehensible.
I have no idea what a "substitution list" is or what "strings" are. Nor - working for myself 24x7 - do I have the time to puzzle it all out.
There is no meaningful help. F8 does nothing. It is just a complete waste of time unless you are a geek. And I am not.
Why cant someone just write a nice simple app that allows me to 'Enter word you dont want to see any more = xxx'. And that is that.
I have deleted this app. A waste of time. Geek speak.
Incredible tool Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I solved a big problem with it, congratulations to the developers.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.17.1.1-signed.1-let-fixed).
great addon!! Replace bad words! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
great addon to replace bad words, but i would like to see next changes:
1. Please add site exception list and substitutions exception list.
2. Also If this addon enabled (Rb mouse click - Replace With) - youtube not play video!
3. Also please add optional flag for rules (for "FoxReplaceOptions") like "auto-replace is on"
For Russian lang you can use my mini "antimat" substitition export: http://myfolder.ru/files/44932911
Для блокирования мата, вы можете импортировать мини словарь мата http://myfolder.ru/files/44932911
This is done since many years ago. Add the URLs where you want to apply substitutions and add them with a - to exclude them, e.g. add -example.com to exclude example.com.
Great Addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This addon works great...I would just like to see a couple changes:
1. When editing a substitution group I wish the Substitutions tab was selected by default, rather than the URL tab. I use the Substitutions tab A LOT more, and it's annoying having to always switch to it.
2. More options for sorting through substitutions I've already made. I wish I could sort them alphabetically, and a search box would be amazing. Sometimes I forget if I have made a sub or not, and I have to read through them all, a search function would be so much easier than doing that.
Other than that it works great, surprised how many great features are in this addon. I just hope it gets updated with more soon.
I have taken note of both suggestions. Thank you for your review.
Excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars
It solved a big problem for me. Please, if possible, put an option to highlight text changed, it would be awsome! ThanksThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.17.1.1-signed.1-let-fixed).
Awesome Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I've been SO sick of seeing all the stupid crap about sucking my dick, and really wanted a solution to my problem. This solved it. I was able to change "sucking my dick" to "sucking my dick" and instead of rage, I now crack up every time I see something about it. I also replaced "Micro$oft Faggots" with "those micro$oft douchebags". I have to tell you, it really is satisfying as all hell. Thank you for giving me a solution for this problem. Believe it or not, this whole Win 10 thing is making me crazy, and even this little thing will make an impact on my stress. :) Thanks! Works great. A little lag, but as to be expected. Could be a lot of fun to use for multiple things, but for now this is all I really needed.
P.S. I can't believe that guy is actually leaving a stupid review about spamming the right click menu. There's only ONE entry there for it, and it's useful. Stop whining.
Also, who the hell is complaining about no documentation? Seriously? This couldn't be easier to use, it doesn't require reading. You would have to be beyond stupid not to understand it by just looking at it & using common sense. It's very intuitive & simple. I'm pretty sure you would have to be illiterate not to understand the basics of using this. Here's a suggestion; just try doing something! See what works. It's not hard to do. It'd take just as much time as you took to write the stupid bad review.
Great but a little broken... Rated 3 out of 5 stars
This works beautifully until you try to make a comment on YouTube or post on Twitter. It causes the insertion point to move around weirdly and is quite frustrating (happens on Windows and Arch Linux).This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.17.1.1-signed.1-let-fixed).
As I said to another reviewer, this only happens if you enable the replace every n seconds option and have some substitution defined for YouTube or Twitter. It will be fixed in the next release, but you can disable that option meanwhile, or don't define substitutions for those sites.
Drumpfinator for Comments Sections? Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Hi, this is working great for replacing Drumpfs for me, too—except for the comments sections in places like YouTube.
Is there a settings choice to fix this??? Thanks!
Update: Thanks for the quick response :)
Now comment words are replaced for me, too. The world just got so much nicer/better looking. Great job!
There is the replace every n seconds option, but it has the bug commented by others.
Drumfinator Functionality Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I am liking it so far.
I had issues with it typing backward on Facebook.To fix:
In options, add a New filter with 'Match Case'
After creating filter, Enable
Check 'Auto Replace on Page Load' and 'Replace URLs'
DON'T select 'Auto Replace every X seconds'.
It will be an issue on auto update feeds, but it is still great.!
All the stars.
Would have been great for Trump to Drumpf replacement. Rated 1 out of 5 stars
This add on makes messaging in Facebook type in backwards.
Example: If I tried to type "Hi, how are you?" It would type out as: "?you are how Hi,"
In other words after each completed word is typed, the cursor moves back to the home position.
Otherwise - this extension worked great - for replacing Trump with Drumpf.
This only happens if you enable the replace every n seconds option and have some substitution defined for Facebook or for everywhere.
But the good news is that it will be fixed in the next release.
Remove the context menu entries Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I didn't know something like this existed and it does what I want. However, it adds horrible and long entries to the right click context menus of Firefox! I really don't want them. Provide an option to remove them. This way, I'm looking for a "replacement" to this add-on, one that doesn't spam my right click menus.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.17.1.1-signed.1-let-fixed).
Not quite what I needed. Rated 3 out of 5 stars
would love it if I can choose "inputs only" for form element changes.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.17.1.1-signed.1-let-fixed).

enabling HTML replace kills vbulletin forms Rated 1 out of 5 stars
even if the string to be replaced is nonsense/not in pageThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.17.1.1-signed.1-let-fixed).
I wish it didn't break other stuff Rated 1 out of 5 stars
This is awesome, but when enabled a bunch of "submit" buttons stop working completely on different websites... had to disable this.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.17.0).
Hi, this shouldn't happen if you don't use HTML in input & output and don't enable the script substitution checkbox. Please create a new issue at https://github.com/Woundorf/foxreplace/issues or write me an email and I'll try to help you avoid the problem.
Smart idea Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Замечательная идея и неплохая реализация. Очень помогает. Можно, например, кому-нибудь из ваших "виртуальных" друзей со странными никнеймами (типа "abfyrk") сделать автозамену на более приемлемый для вас вариант (естественно он виден только вам). Или добавить небольшой комментарий/псевдоним/настоящее имя (чтоб не забыть)
Thanks. Smart idea. Autochange for all - it's cool!
会造成启用替换文字页面复制功能异常 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

OK, but won't work under various conditions Rated 3 out of 5 stars
I've been using this a while, and there are some things I've noticed. One, it doesn't automatically work with Java-based pages, so sites that autoload like Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and YouTube won't work on the autoloaded parts, or at all for some sites when going to a new page when you're already on that site.
Secondly, I just noticed that using a proxy totally negates the auto-replace function even when it's on. I was connected to a Japanese proxy and was surprised to find strong profanity on the page even though auto-replace was on.
However, in both these cases, right clicking the page and manually selecting "Replace with substitution list (FoxReplace)" still works.
There's also the fact that to totally remove all variations of words, you need to set up tons of very specific substitutions, because it only substitutes the string you enter. For example, if you set up a substitution for a certain four-letter word starting with "F," replacing it with a blank space, you'll probably see things like "ing," "mothering," "motherer," etc. because it's not removing the rest of the word.
Another thing that may bug you is that it also replaces forms. I set up FoxReplace to change "ising" to "izing" because I'm more familiar with the American spellings of words, but this is obviously too broad a rule, because some such spellings retain the S. So if I submit a form to a website that says "rizing" instead of "rising," I look stupid.
Just be aware of all these things.
