My Reviews

Animat

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I'm not interested in doing what you clearly designed this extension for, but it looks like you did a pretty good job. My question is...Can you go the other way with this? I hate animated images for the most part because they flicker, flash and generally trigger migraine headaches for me and for several million others like me. Since you seem to know what you are doing, it would be really wonderful if you would take the time to make an extension that would display ONLY the first pane of an animated image, but allow the option of clicking on the image to see the animation and then stopping the animation by just clicking on it again. Please consider doing this. It would be a truly humanitarian act and a service to a large portion of mankind. Thanks.

Gif Block

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Good concept, but most gif images do not need to be blocked, only the animated gifs. Please redesign this to discriminate between static and animated gifs and then set it up to be a toggle so that one may toggle a single image if they wish to watch its animation without unblocking all animated gifs. Just a suggestion, but it might be easier to simply freeze all animated gifs on the first frame when this extension has animated gif blocking active for all web pages. Then you could allow a single image toggle that would unfreeze or refreeze an image. It is very important to be able to REfreeze an animate gif after you take a look at it and are done with it.

Image Tools

Animated GIF Function? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It's not clear from your description, but all the things you list seem to omit one very important function. You divide image types up, but you seem to ignore the animated gif image type completely. The reason I looked at this extension is because animated gifs give me migraines and distract me from things I really want to see. Do you have a function, or will you add a function, that allows us to pause or disable animated gifs or other animated images that are not part of a flash image? I sincerely hope that this is part of your extension now, but if it is not then you really should consider it as one of those helpful and interesting things you can add to improve it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.4). 

FFClickOnce

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Please update this to work with Firefox 3.5.3! This is a great addon, as far as I can see, and I do not want any addon that is installed without my knowledge AND approval, so I definitely choose this one. However, it is hard to use this addon if it is not compatible with the current version of Firefox. :(

GDirections

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very useful, but not compatible with FF 3.5.2, unfortunately, so I hope you will be releasing a new version shortly. =^_^=

Clupedia Toolbar

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Since the average person is an idiot, why on earth would I be interested in knowing their opinions about anything? IMO, this has to be one of the more useless addons that I have seen made!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.0.20080613). 

Paste Email (original)

Most Useful Tool Ever! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This has to be the MOST useful tool that I have found! I use it on a regular basis and have even started using it to paste my name and address parts, as well.

Thanks for making this and keep up the good work!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.2). 

Gradient Brushed Metal

Slow due to Thumbs.db Files Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This theme is okay, BUT it would be a LOT better if the author would learn NOT to package it with all of his Thumbs.db files included. That is probably what makes it run so much slower for one of the other reviewers. I periodically take a look at the code on my themes and that is something that causes ME to rate them low and uninstall them because I object to wasted space, in this case almost 300 KB, since I am an old-timer who remembers when I had hard drives that were only 30-60 MB.

People Search and Public Record Toolbar

Very Handy Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is a very handy item to have. My wife recently found a lost credit card and we were able to find the owner and notify him using this toolbar. I'm sure it has lots of other uses, too, but it's very nice to have.

Link Evaluator

Seems a bit complicated to use Rated 2 out of 5 stars

The user interface for this addon is a bit over-complicated and often confusing, but it seems to do a good job, IF you can figure out how to use it properly. It would be nice to see it made a bit more user-friendly, but not necessarily "dumbed down" in the process.

As the previous reviewer stated, someone needs to add a TRUE update existing bookmarks functionality and if you can add this to this addon, then it will become a "10" in my book.

Keep up the hard work and I'm sure the next version will be better. =^_^=

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.9.5). 

Flat Bookmark Editing

This Really SHOULD be Default! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It wastes so much time having to open that Properties window every time I want to change some simple little thing on a bookmark. This will make life a LOT easier for me.

This really SHOULD be included as the Default!

Favorites Converter (export)

Old, but still Good Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is an old addon, but if you edit the version it works with, it still does the job better than anything else I have found.

It would be nice if the author, or someone, would update it for the current version of Firefox so that people don't have to do that, but it's still a GOOD addon.

Well worth getting if you run Firefox and Maxthon, like I do, because there are those "special" sites that just insist on using Active-X or maybe you like to play MSN Games. =^_^=
