Feedly - Beyond Google Reader

To fix icon problem - see Shaggyaxe comment below Rated 5 out of 5 stars

And thanks to Shaggyaxe for posting it!

Pocket

Thanks for the update! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Glad to see you've fixed Pocket so that it works again for the newer versions of Firefox, including Nightly/FF25. Back to a 5 star extension!

FEBE

Frustrated long term user Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This extension does not work far more often than it does, so as others note below, it is unreliable. And frustrating. And irritating. The dev's forum gives help suggestions that take too much time - like combing thru all installed extensions to find a potential conflict. Basically, the extension seems to be far too complicated, therefore it's easy for IT to conflict with other extensions. I give up, after multiple years of frustrated use.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (7.0.3.5).

Stopped working altogether today for me too! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Also on Nightly/Firefox 18.0a1 - extension does not appear in status/add-on bar, or any other location; its setting are empty; it does not respond to input. Dead as can be.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2.1). 

PDF Viewer

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Hate it. And don't want it forced on me, as is being done in Nightly. Mozilla seems to be dead set on making me use Chrome as my default browser.

If I could rate this a negative, I would. Just let me open pdf's in Adobe Reader, please!

Diigo fails to keep up with Firefox Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I have been a Diigo user for 4 or 5 years, and a paying subscriber for the last year. I am about to end that status, however, as I have grown weary of Diigo's failure to keep up with Firefox's disciplined, rapid delivery cycles, while apparently focusing all their time and attention on iPhone and Chrome apps. They appear to be an undisciplined, hyper ADD, juvenile bunch, more interested in appearing to keep up with the latest technologies than really doing so. Why else would they fail to implement HTML5 for their Firefox apps, and instead store data in prefs.js? Their toolbar apps bog Firefox and IE down to the point of suffocation. Their javascript only bookmark is ok, but there's no focus on improving it. So, I'd prefer to focus my attention and bookmarking activities at a site that has a more serious focus on user requirements. Next stop is my to terminate recurring payments to Diigo.

Works great in all 4 FF versions Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Contrary to others' experience discussed below, this extension works fine for me in all 4 versions of Firefox (Stable, Beta, Aurora, Nightly), with 40 extensions installed in all profiles.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.0.20111125). 

BetterPrivacy

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

While I applaud the concept, I find that this extension requires too much overhead/effort to enable Flash to work on "permitted" or as developer calls them "protected" sites. UI needs simplifying as well - very annoying that you have to click twice for each protected site, and that cursor ALWAYS returns to top of list after each click. Unintalling for now.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.29).

Strongly recommend that the develop disable whatever popup has been enabled in the most recent update. Annoying would be a kind word for it. Rage inducing might be more accurate, especially when there is zero explanation of it anywhere in the settings panel or on the developer website. Disabled on my machine for now, and a strong candidate for uninstall if this problem is not rectified quickly.

Aero Fox XL

regression Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Nav Toolbar in 3.0.2 Basic is much too large and silver tab bars (in multi-row) are not cool! Went back to 3.0.1b, with narrower navbar and black, narrow tab bars. Screen r/e too valuable to waste it on large bars.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0.2). 

Diigo Toolbar - Annotate, Screenshot, Bookmark

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Recently released Version 3.0 may be the most intuitive tagging, saving, snipping, notetaking and commenting web app ever. This version should probably be 4.0, because it improved that much over 2.0 version. The toolbar comes with a sidebar option that is a true complement, not a redundant vertical version of the toolbar. The entire interface (toolbar, sidebar, dropdowns, context menus, etc.) including the newly redesigned website, reflects a thoughtful understanding of user interaction with web content. The website addes a truly collaborative/group thinking type dimension to content tagging and searching that I have not used much yet, but appears equally well designed. Kudos to the Diigo team!
