My Reviews

Penny: IMDB Boards Formatting Helper

Very helpful! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I am delighted to find this. I had never looked for Firefox extensions for IMDb before, and I only looked now because David-CG is rewriting his scripts as extensions.

I've used David-CG's excellent scripts for years and I highly recommend them.

They make life much easier on IMDb and I greatly appreciate them.

David's give you a lot more than this extension does, but this extension gives you something that David-CG's scripts don't. The ability to remove markups. It comes up occasionally and it is annoying.

I can imagine times when right clicking to insert markup or emoticons might be helpful. At least it is nice to have the option.

If you do not have David-CG's scripts, you really have to get this, and even if you do, I encourage you to get it.

It's All Text!

WARNING! ***DESTROYS*** Your Files After Seven Days! WARNING! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This program is doing the same thing to me. It is deleting texts that I expected to be able to refer back to.

According to the other review, it is a deliberate part of the software and I find that unintelligible.

This program is useless to me as it is I am quite sorry to say.

Snap Links Plus

Where are the instructions? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Is it really the case that there are no instructions? I certainly can't find them.I can draw the box, but then nothing happens. I assume I am supposed to do something, but I have not guessed what yet.

DragIt (formerly Drag de Go)

Awful Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I have used the previous, simpler, version of this extension for years, and I become rather dependent upon it. It did exactly what I wanted it to do, and it did not keep doing things that I did not want it to do. For this extension to be at all useful for me, there would have to be an option to turn off *all* of the gestures and let me put back on the ones that I want. If there is such an option, I apologize, and would someone please tell me where it is, because as it is, this extension is not worth the trouble to me.

Scroll to Top/Bottom

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a great add-on especially after I discovered that if you move the cursor to the edge of the screen before releasing the button, the menu does not appear.

It would be even better if the menu did not appear wherever you release the button, and I hope that will come some day.

DragUrLink

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This extension would be exactly what I want if I could drag the link in one direction, say up, to open the link in a foreground tab, and drag it in another direction, say down, to open it in the background tab.

It's All Text!

Copies In both directions Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have been using It's All Text with Jarte so that I can use Naturally Speaking without the problems that tend to come up in non-WordPad based applications. Just click Save and it transfers the text from Jarte to where I want it.

Today, I discovered that if I change the text in the original box, and click Edit, it will transfer the change to Jarte and update it. Then I can save it there or work on it some more.

It is really great.

Memory Fox

Great Extension. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The memory leak problem has been a major frustration with Firefox for me, and this extension solves the problem and does not create any of its own that I have noticed. It works beautifully.

Thank you. Now I don't have to keep restarting Firefox for the browser to be usable.

Most Recent Tab

Very Useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is just what I have wanted. I changed control-`, because I use it for Ditto, to Alt-`, and I like it. Tab Mix Plus has an option to click the current tab to return to the previous tab, but I use an extension that gives you a tab's history when you click it.

History Button

Button Won't Stay Where I Put It Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This extension is useful, and it is what I want except that the button won't stay where I put it. It keeps going back to where the developer thinks it belongs and that's not where I think it belongs. Ginger commented on this earlier.

Forecastfox Weather

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Forecastfox Weather is certainly better than nothing, but the sad fact is that it is nowhere near as good as Forecastbar Enhanced was. I miss it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.2.1-signed.1-signed). 

Page Scheduler

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I will remember Morning Coffee fondly, but this is better. Also, it works which MC does not anymore.

Paragrasp

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Yes, please, Paragrasp for Tidyread!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.45). 

Brief

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Clearly, there is a difference of opinion about what is intuitive. I had no problem with Sage, and would still be using it if it were updated, but I cannot get this thing to do anything. As far as I can tell, there are no instructions.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.1).
