My Reviews

Downloads Window

Exactly what it says on the tin Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Yet another extension I have to install to restore sanity to a firefox configuration.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.3). 

Tab History Redux

Essential but buggy Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I don't know why this isn't the default behavior in firefox. But unfortunately this addon is slightly buggy. I've been using it for several months and sometimes (I think it's when you've opened several links in new tabs, then closed some of them) the history gets mixed up with other tabs. It's kind of a pain and I wish the addon would just work.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2). 

Switch to Tab no more

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great! The switch to tab "feature" doesn't work for me at ALL anyway.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.0.1). 

CookiesLive

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This seems like an extraordinarily bad idea. Gmail will only accept a few password attempts before locking you out. But cookieslive have the encrypted cookie in memory. Trivial to break.

Link Target Display

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Exactly what I was looking for.

It would be a lot better through if it were just wider. Like about half the width of the window.
There's no reason to crunch it so small!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3). 

Stylish

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm not sure anymore that it's even possible to browse the web without this extension. If you're style-obsessive and tiny little annoyances constantly grate, chances are a user has fixed it and put the fix on the userstyles site

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.5). 

Old Bookmarks Sidebar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Yes!!
One step closer to restoring firefox to sanity. Now if we could just get rid of the awesomebar...

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4). 

Remove New Tab Button

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I prefer my new tab button up in the toolbar to the right of Home. When will the firefox devs learn that even if it's "better", people are annoyed by a constantly changing interface that they have to relearn every few months.

IdentFavIcon

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a fantastic idea

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.2). 

Green

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This sounds like a really bad idea. You're installing an extension that tracks your browsing habits, sends them back to a server, and even displays targeted advertising to you. I suspect that they make a ton of money off this and only donate a token amount to conservation efforts

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.9). 

FireTray

great for downloads Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Other reviewers said that it doesn't work.. well it doesn't but if you go to the addons preferences and check "Minimize on close" and then close the window, it works fine!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.9). 

Glubble for Families

ok Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I believe the suspicious Privacy Policy line is "Glubble may share Personal Data with its affiliates." Or maybe "Glubble may disclose Personal Data of a User Account if ... doing so is necessary to comply with legal process, law enforcement agencies, respond to claims, or protect our rights..." No subpoena required, police just have to ask.. not my idea of protecting your customers. Anyway, this seems like a pretty robust firefox addon- nice integration with the web services. It's pretty trivial to bypass though.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.1.5). 

Password Exporter

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Very useful extension, but the "encryption" is just binary base64 encoding... just XOR with a master password for transport, it would be much much more secure.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1). 

Tabs Open Relative

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

All I can say is that this addon makes sense! Why this isn't the default behavior is beyond me, but this addon is essential.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.3). 

Edit Middle

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Absolutely essential addon. The default behavior doesn't even make sense.. this works fantastically! Also I found this completely compatible with the oldbar extension if you dislike the AwesomeBar.

oldbar

simply fantastic Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank God I found this, the Awesome Bar made my eyes bleed. This looks exactly like the old Location Bar, but with the snazzy gold stars on the right for bookmarked URLs. Now _please_ implement functionality to restore an at least usable search algorithm..

Firefox 2.0 Classic Theme for Firefox 3.0

Excellent Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is wayyyy better than the Strata theme that comes with Firefox 3. If you download the XPI and tweak the RDF manifest to have a maxversion of 3.* then it works fine with RC1.
