Dumps all addons into a single list. Needs to be categorized by type (extensions, plugins, userscripts)
Google search does not work
Nothing is displayed.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (7.1).
Simple, straightforward and useful.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.8.1).
The ESC key is often used by JS code on some pages.
PAUSE key stopped working on 1.2.1
Please check that you are not breaking functionality that people rely on.
Issues fixed, review modified accordingly.
Left to do:
1) Pull request created to support the "Pause" key
2) Add a toggle button
Since the dev is responsive, I have no problem giving it a 5-star now, knowing that the remaining issues will be addressed.
userscripts.org is currently inaccessible.
http://userscripts.org:8080 can be used instead
But scriptish hijacks the url and forcefully changes it to https, which does not work on those pages.
What the hell???
I'm back to GM.
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=843727#c13This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.2).
The CPU issue appears to be fixed but now the reported memory consumption is completely wrong.
I have 2 FF windows open, one shows 707MB, the other 706MB. about:memory reports 1277MB private. Process explorer shows 1319.
Community-supported version, works for FF26:
Unusable on FF 26.
CPU jumps to 100% every several seconds.
Console shows this:
usingOldMemoryReporter returnValue = false
refreshMemoryNewCallback aProcess=, aUnsafePath=resident, aKind=2, aUnits=0, aAmount=540528640, aDescription=Memory mapped by the process that is present in physical memory, also known as the resident set size (RSS). This is the best single figure to use when considering the memory resources used by the process, but it depends both on other processes being run and details of the OS kernel and so is best used for comparing the memory usage of a single process at different points in time.
Once I disabled this addon, the problem stopped.
Incompatible with current versions of TB.
Does not work, no support.
Tried it on a couple of Tumblr "archive" pages.
Don't see the difference.
There are two problems with this extension:
1) It does not remove all redirects.
For example, using Google's search-by-image: http://tinyurl.com/orq5aqqThe redirect on the images are not removed.
2) More importantly, it completely breaks sites that use google search internally.
For example, https://stackexchange.com/search?q=regex
This review is for 1.4.0 and replaces my previous reviews.
Linkificator is an actively supported extension and shows steady improvement between versions. The developer is responsive, takes bug reports seriously and is open to suggestions.
While there is still some room for ongoing improvement, I am comfortable giving Linkificator the highest 5-star rating. Also, I would like to thank the author for the add on and the ongoing support.
Good Job, Marka Pola!
Edit: 1.5.0 took care of most false positives.
This review is for 1.3.0 and replaces my previous reviews.
Linkificator is an actively supported extension and shows steady improvement between versions. The developer is responsive, takes bug reports seriously and open to suggestions (that is not to say that the developer will always agree with your ideas, but they will be considered).
In general, this version feels snappier than previous ones, and more usable with the automatic reparsing on on/off and the addition of left/middle/right-click recognition (but see below).
I would like to thank the author for the add on and the ongoing support.
Idiosyncrasies and problems:
* The right-click/left-click operations feel reversed. The expectation is for the left-click to perform the main operation and for the right-click to pop up the menu (ideally, all 3 clicks would be customizable with a "menu" being one of the options).
* False positives (for example: a score of 8.5/10 or a similar math expression would get linkified).
Areas for future improvement:
* Having a separate on/off state for each window/tab (like Linkification).
* Right-clicking on toolbar icon should present a menu with common operations (like Linkification).
* More compatibility improvements (see for example http://piro.sakura.ne.jp/xul/textlink/index.html.en#testcases).
* Balancing aggressive detection, false positives and speed is difficult. Perhaps having several modes (quick, safe, aggressive) will solve that.
To summarize, I would like to give it a better than a 4-star review, but I feel it is not quite yet at the 5-star point. Although, with the accumulation of steady incremental fixes, it is getting pretty close -- I have a feeling that I will amend the review and the mark soon.
The add-on works most of the time but there are annoying issues and no support on the forum (apart from spam messages)This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.0.8).
A previous reviewer wrote:"Does not work with FF18, it just opens up the Google Homepage and no results (even the input box is locked)."
I noticed that behaviour. It happens very rarely, but it is annoying when it does as all subsequent searches will fail.Fortunately, I found a workaround:
Whenever that happens, type something into the google input box and hit enter. Even if the box is messed up and does not show the typed characters, it will still work.
Apparently this will cause the add-on to resume working.
Edit: Stopped happening.
Not maintained anymore.
I started using the TinEye reverse search a long time ago. At the time, they offered a unique and useful service. The add-on was well done, the DB was growing and there was no competition.
Then, Google introduced their own reverse image search. For a while I was running add-ons for both services and checking images on both, but it became evident that TinEye cannot compete with Google's offering. About a month ago I uninstalled the TinEye add-on.
TL;DR version: Use one of the Google reverse search add-ons instead.
