My Reviews

Cheevos for Firefox

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great concept. No-restart makes it an easy impulse install. I probably won't keep it forever, but it is fun to collect achievements.

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

Blur

Odd Behavior Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This add-on might provide a good service, but its quirks are annoying enough to risk being uninstalled. Every time I restart Firefox (which is every day since I run the UX-branch of Nightly) it puts its ugly button back onto my toolbar, so I have to take extra steps to remove the button. Every day. I would much prefer to have an item in the Tools menu that I can click when I want to see what DNT+ has blocked. I visit the same site many times, and the blocking info is only useful on the first visit.

Also, when I tried to click the Preferences button in about:addons, it closed my addons manager (which was a pinned tab) and opened up a blank non-pinned tab. I had to reopen the add-ons manager, re-pin it, and then move it back to where it belonged among my pinned tabs. I checked every other add-on I have, and this one is the only one whose preferences are messed up that way. Why have a Preferences button in the add-on manager if it just messes up the user's browser?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.0.327). 

Movable Firefox Button

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The latest update uglified the button. It is now shifted up slightly and the height is less. It used to look great sitting just to the left of my app tabs. Is there a way to roll back to the previous version?

Phoenity Next (formerly Phoenity Reborn)

Beautiful! (and Mac issue) Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I'm going to have to say the same as Missugly. Although I've tried three different skins and all but the default have a messed up back/forward button on the Mac. I can't fault you for it, but the missing sliders (not only on the main window but anytime someone uses a slider, for example when trying to browse mac widgets) does hurt the usability.

Hopefully they (the Firefox guys) figure out what is causing the back/forward buttons to wig out like that. I really prefer Firefox over Safari but the default buttons are just way too wide.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.93).
