My Reviews

InfoLister

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A request was made to compare Extension List Dumper and InfoLister. I give both 5 stars, here is my comparison in some detail:

Brief Comparison of Extension List Dumper (ELD) and InfoLister (IL):

1. The biggest difference between these 2 extensions is that ELD works in the extensions (add-ons) window and generates an output file, and IL sits on the Tools menu (by default, this is configurable) and displays a list any ordinary FF window. IL can also generate an output file, that's an extra step, albeit very easy.

2. ELD allows you to specify all, enabled, disabled, incompatible. IL allows you to specify extensions, themes, plugins.

2. Both can save in various formats ... txt, html, BBCode. ELD offers csv, IF offers xml, xpi list, XML, XML+XSLT. IL allows for use of custom templates.

3. Both highlight disabled extensions. For me, IL does this in a more visible way, with "[Disabled]" appearing to the right enough to stand out nicely.

4. If you select HTML in ELD, then both provide links, where available.

5. ELD enables inclusion of the extension description.

6. IL provides the ability to upload via ftp, http, https, and to do so automatically on exit (presumably from FF, I did not test this feature.)

7. ELD offers buttons to print and copy to clipboard.

Well, I hope I haven't missed too much. Thanks to both developers, both extensions appear to me to work flawlessly. I actually have both installed, precisely because one works in the UI, the other in the extensions window. So I can get a list from anywhere.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.10.1).

Remove Cookie(s) for Site

Good ... but third party cookies? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I agree with the previous reviewer, Close n Forget seems more straightforward and a bit more powerful. I don't know whether either of these extensions clears third paerty cookies, that would make a big difference. Developer ... comment?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6). 

Privacy +

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works great, does just what the developer says it does.

Now, if you would enlarge the Clear Recent History dialog ... have to scroll just to access this checkbox! (Using Windows XP, the OS might make a difference.)

OpenBook

Answer to Bookmerkers' Prayers Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I submitted a review, but it doesn't appear, so I'm starting over. I hope my reviews don't show up twice!

OpenBook does everything the author states. It presents all the bookmark fields, allows for resizing the whole dialog to a MUCH more useful size, and enables toggling the folders and tags open and closed. It even allows you to rearrange the folders by draffing them, just as you would in the Library.

My only enhancement request would be to enable renaming of the folders on the fly.

I give 4 stars instead of 5 for 2 reasons:

1. The extension seems a bit slow to me, the dialog takes awhile to open when I press ctrl-D.

2. Sometimes, the extension stops opening and closing folders when I press the little +/- doohickies. (That's my technical term for the day. :) Then, when I close and reopen the dialog, the folders are properly expanded ... this I don't understand. But in comparison with all the benefits this extension provides, it's only a minor nuisance.

Pallanza, I'm using FF 3.5.5 running on Win XP SP3 and having none of the problems you described. Perhaps uninstall and reinstall the extension??? It's really quite helpful!!

OpenBook

Huge improvement! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

OpenBook fixes many of the problems with the rather unfortunate native FF bookmark dialog. It makes every field available, toggle-able, and the whole window resizable, just as the author states. You can even rearrange the folders by dragging them, just as you would in the LIbrary. Nice touch!!!

Occasionally I find that it stops opening and closing folders when I click on the +/- thingies. then I close and reopen the dialog, and the click has taken effect. Not sure what's up with that, it does happen more frequently than I would like, hence only 4 stars. But overall, I really appreciate and value this extension.

My one enhancement request would be the ability not only to rearrange the folders, but also to rename them on the fly. Of course, I may just be missing something that's already available ...??

Pallanza, I'm running FF 3.5.5 and not experiencing what you are. I'm running SP SP3 on a laptop, no unusual configuration or setup. Have you tried just uninstalling and reinstalling the extension? It really does work quite well over here.

Undo Bookmarks Menu

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Does what it says, great idea. And ... I would love to see keyboard shortcuts added, for those of us who prefer shortcuts over using the mouse. Preferably, shortcuts that can be configured using keyconfig. That would be a REAL winner, for me at least.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4). 

secureFox

Simple, yet effective! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I like this extension! As one other reviewer already noted, it keeps me from exiting FF when I only meant to close a window ... and it happens to be the last open window.

Speaking of which, I have one suggestion/request ... Right now, it requires the password to close EVERY window. I'd appreciate an option to invoke the password only when closing the LAST window ... that is, when closing the browser itself. (This is, after all, what the description actually says. :):) This will get a fifth star from me!
