Simple but wonderful! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

THANK YOU, JORGE! I have been looking for a way to do this, and it was bothering me. Now, I've removed all plugin permissions in one shot. Great!

Web of Trust, WOT: Website Reputation Ratings

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This add-on is worse than useless; it's harmful. The reasons are the same two reasons that go along with most bad things in life: Unethical people, and unintelligent people.

On one hand, a small handful of people can wage a harmful and resource-draining smear campaign on perfectly legitimate websites. On the other hand, you will frequently see other perfectly legitimate websites rated as dangerous simply because one or more anti-virus vendors generated a false positive or a meaningless heuristic detection on some software that website offers for download. You will also see the sites of legitimate software (such as monitoring software) vendors rated poorly, as if a user could somehow navigate to the site, download and install the software, and then become "victim" to it.

Many sites do have accurate ratings in WOT, but too many do not. WOT itself is not trustworthy.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm so glad I've learned to ignore people. The "Re-Pagination" extension is rated a solid 5 stars, yet that extension didn't work at all for me on sites like Amazon.com. This one does.


Useless Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Would be clunky and inconvenient even if it worked, but it didn't work on any site I tried it on.


Frustrating Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I love the concept of this extension, but it is so terribly buggy, I can't stand it. I have a huge number of empty log entries. Apparently, TMN has been submitting empty searches.

TMN doesn't work at all unless I enable "Use tab to search". But when I enable that option, TMN slows Firefox to an absolute unusable crawl. Also, when a new search is performed, the tab it's running in turns the loading animation on and off over and over and over.

Validating the RSS also doesn't appear to do anything. I get no feedback whatsoever when I use that function.

I'd pay $50 for a fully functional bit of software of this type.

Dictionary Pop-Up by Dictionary.com (Official)

Repulsive privacy policy Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I am familiar with Dictionary.com's Android app, so I assumed their atrocious privacy policy would also be in effect here, and it sure is. Other users have mentioned this, but it bears repeating. If you use this extension, here is what you are giving them:

* Your IP address.
* Unique identifier which tracks your installation
* Your geographic location.
* The URL of the PREVIOUS web page you visited before visiting their site.
* Words you look up (of course).
* And so on.

And they share everything with other parties.

Disable WebRTC

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

"The one-star review was crap." Hilarious. This is from a person who calls the WebRTC functionality a "vulnerability".

My "one-star review" accurately pointed out that this extension did not notice changes to the applicable setting that were made outside the extension itself. The developer replied positively to my review, said "Good call", and improved the extension as a result. Then, a real expert chimed in.

Thanks for updating the extension. Well done.

@Nope: Although Chrome does not natively allow you to block WebRTC (at the time of this writing, anyway), there are Chrome extensions that can block WebRTC in that browser. Please find them, and go back to using Chrome.

Disable WebRTC

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Along with another reviewer, I think it makes more intuitive sense for a grey toolbar button to indicate that WebRTC is disabled, not enabled. I also found that this extension's toolbar button does not notice changes made to the media.peerconnection.enabled setting outside of its own toolbar button. This is poor design. Also, that is an uuuuuugly icon.

Advanced Locationbar

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

The name is a misnomer; there isn't much here that Locationbar² doesn't have. Actually the main options I care about are gone, such as the ability to change the color of the highlighted domain name, or make it display in bold ("strong") font.

Video DownloadHelper

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've found this to be the best video downloader available for Firefox, and it doesn't have the nasty privacy concerns that some others do. Great developer, too.

Annoying would be an understatement Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I found it blocking certain images on amazon.com. The images were coming from images-amazon.com. Temporarily allowing all requests resolved the issue. So, RP must be blocking something that would show in the list of "Blocked destinations", right? Wrong.

Why wouldn't it? Because it's not smart enough. I had to dig to find out what was going on, and create a rule with origin ssl-images-amazon.com and destination images-amazon.com. This was the first and only site I've visited since installing this extension, because apparently privacy and security is supposed to become a full-time hobby.

I recommend installing it along with NoScript so you can stop wasting time enjoying the internet, and devote 13 hours a day instead to configuring Firefox extensions.


Doesn't work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Simply does not work. Failed me when I needed it most--when I tried doing a profile restore. It would put up the confirmation dialog, I'd click OK, then ... nothing. Stare into the void. And it had a really annoying habit of flashing dialogs that then seemed to disappear. Sometimes they were underneath other windows, other times they went into a bit bucket somewhere.

In short, this thing wasn't even worth the time it took me to write this review and spit.

Edit: I do not owe it to you to seek support before writing a review. Your extension did not work, and got the review it deserves.

Adblock Plus

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is still the best ad blocker available. I've tried the others, and some of them are truly laughable, particularly the one that has only a small handful of filters, which are not user configurable. Wow. It's hilarious!

I've reviewed the privacy policy and read articles about how ABP works, and I see nothing off-putting. Just disable "acceptable ads" (you can even delete them completely, for crying out loud), and you're done. No one has been able to explain to my why ABP is evil, other than pointing and screaming like some idiot doing an "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" impression.

Speed DNS

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Some of you people seem to be deluded. This extension doesn't do anything at all. I used Nirsoft DNSQuerySniffer to verify that host names were not being resolved until links were actually clicked. Yes, I enabled this extension in the Tools menu first.

Video DownloadHelper

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The ALPHA 1 version of VDH 5 worked better for me than most "final" versions of any type of software you might care to mention to me. Best of the best.

Video Downloader professional

Horrible privacy policy Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The extension seems to work well, but check the privacy policy. They send your IP address, location, and SEARCH TERMS to advertisers such as Amazon, eBay, etc. Do you want to share all your searches with those web sites? Didn't think so.

Great extension! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This extension (or, more accurately, the Mozilla Plugin Check web page) confused me when it kept telling me that Flash was out of date, yet no update was available. Turns out it was trying to look out for me. There were Flash 0-day exploits out there, and no update yet available. At least I knew something was up. Thanks.

Auto Private

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This is a nice extension. I know it's not "hard" using about:config, but it would be easier if one didn't have to. Please consider adding a GUI. Thanks.

Self-Destructing Cookies

Useless Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I've been using it for a long time. Today, I finally noticed that it hasn't been doing anything other than wasting my time. I just happened to notice cookies that are not whitelisted but have been in place for over a year. All this time, I thought it was deleting these cookies. All this time, I've been wasting my time whitelisting. No, I am not using private browsing. No, I am not using some other cookie extension that interferes.

The Addon Bar (Restored)

Thank you! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Oh, how I HATED IT when they got rid of the app bar. My workaround had been to always show the menu bar, and put all my app icons there. But even after weeks of this, I could not get used to it.

And why do away with the app bar? Even if you come up with some lame reason for it, it's still hard to defend not having a way to get it back somehow, without an extension. This extension is the next best thing.

Thank you!
