My Reviews

Reddit on Youtube

Doesn't work with "soft loads" Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very useful. Only problem: It doesn't seem to activate on videos you get to from another youtube page, as youtube does some sort of soft load, where not all elements of the site are reloaded.

NoScript Security Suite

Media no longer properly blocked on trusted sites (youtube) Rated 4 out of 5 stars

After the update to Firefox 43.0, the option to block html5-media on trusted sites no longer seems to work on youtube (which also ignores the media.autoplay.enabled false option).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.7). 

Stop Tube HTML5

Youtube still tries Flash Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I see the click-to-play screen for half a second, then Youtube tries to play the flash version. So I have the same situation as with noscript: I can stop autoplay, but if I want to actually play a video, it's always flash.
I am logged in to Youtube and I have set the html5-option. (Firefox 40.0.3, Ubuntu 14.04)

Tab Mix Plus

No more Tab costumisation with TreeStyle Tabs Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I have to agree with wowaname on Feb 15th; a valuable feature was unnecessarily removed.

Works like a charm.

Tab Mix Plus

Session manager and hibernated tabs Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This AddOn has served me well for years. I absolutely recomend it.
I only recently tried its session manager.
It has a nice range of features, but it doesn't use the hibernate feature when restoring a session, which is a problem when handling large numbers of tabs, which was the main reason for me to want to use a multiple session supporting session manager.
I'd love to see a fix for that.

TabGroups Menu

How it should be Rated 5 out of 5 stars

THIS is what they should have done from the start. Nice and simple.

On thing I'd like to know: The panorama button menu and the menu bar menu seem to work differently. The panorama button one has additional markups to indicate active tabgroup and inactive tabs. Is this not possible in the menu bar?

What I'd like to have, would be an option to give names to tab groups created by moving a tab to a new tab group right away, since that is the way I create most of my tab groups and unnamed tab groubs are terrible to handle.
Maybe one could also add an option to replace the tab group entry in the tab dropdown menu with your group menu as well, to save additional space.

Feed Sidebar

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Nice and slim feed reader. Is it possible to add some kind of filtering functionality, to exclude or include only entrys containing certain terms?

Edit: I think, it would also be nice to have an option to autohide the sidebar whenever all feeds are read, regardless of the use of the scissors button.

Duplicate Contact Manager

room for improvements Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The idea is great. I like the way it works.

But there are some serious bugs:
- when copying information from one contact to an other and delete the first one, I got some error message and the copied information was lost in nirvana
- after installing the add-on there are unnecessary blank lines between entries in contact previews, which cost space and overview and won't go away without disabling DCM

As others mentioned before, an option to move contacts instead of deleting them would protect you from losing data in case of malfunctioning.
Furthermore I'd prefer being shown all contacts that contain eg. the same email address all at once to chose the one(s) to keep and the one(s) to (re)move.

I'll continue using this add-on with some caution and disable it when not in use. I'm looking forward for some adjustments.
