My Reviews

Multirow Bookmarks Toolbar Plus

What will happen with my old links Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It seems I have to uninstall my old multi-row add-on to get this working.
But what does that mean for all the links I have saved in there? Will they be lost?

And what is it about sponsor-links? Who wants that?
This would not be the first add-on that is getting fucked up in a newer version.
If this is where the Firefox add-on model leads to then I foresee the end of Firefox.

NoScript Security Suite

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Great Idea. However totally useless since it doesn't come with a regularly updated blacklist.
That means you have to decide for yourself on most sites weather you want to see their content. Almost nobody can make an educated decision on that and it makes the tool very annoying. So as I already said, it's a great idea but a totally uselees tool which I abandoned after a day.

Xmarks Sync

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The developers of this add-on just don't seem to get. Many users and especially those who switched from IE to Firefox are paranoid on security and privacy issues. And so they should!!!! To many people do not understand the dangers of internet yet. But they will, more and more. So developers that wish to survive should never make an applications that asks for trust from the users. Which means at least that they should never use and collect users data without clear and precise permission from the users on what and how they are allowed to collect and use their information. And they should be transparent in revealing their program code especially code used on the server side of their services. Xmarks just doesn't qualify.

Enigform

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a great idea. But it needs GnuPG installed before it can work and it is only usefull when you connect to webservers that support it.
