My Reviews

Auto-Complete On

Works some of the time. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Usually saves input fields with names like "password", even on some sites that have frustrated me up to now. But it's annoyingly reticent to save the ones I seem to use most often. It would be much more useful if it allowed me to tell it what to save on specific sites.

YouTube to MP3

Apparently a scam; installs adware and viruses. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Run away!!!

Leet Key

TB 5.0!! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Forget 3.3.

Tab History

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Bug 18808 says this works with FF 3.6, but the addons page refuses to install it. Please change the version limit in the add-on to allow the installation.

Ghostery

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Good as far as it goes, but it really needs to let you store a list of sites whose "web bugs" are allowed. (Some sites, such as banks, are disabled if you block their bugs -- but as it is now, the only workaround is to turn Ghostery completely off, which causes "leaks" if you have other sites open in other tabs.)

Also, Ghostery ought to allow itself to be used with Thunderbird (needed when TB displays web pages as a result of viewing RSS feeds or HTML mail with redirects).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.1). 

Ghostery

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Seems to work as advertised, but lacks two obvious and important features:
* Need to be able to exempt a list of sites (such as banks and some newspapers, which functionally disable their sites if you don't display their web bugs - for now I have to manually turn Ghostery off when visiting those sites)
* Need to be compatible with Thunderbird (since viewing RSS pages or HTML e-mails in TB triggers web bugs)
