My Reviews

Lightshot (screenshot tool)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The best screen shot grabber I have found for firefox so far.
It is not too complicated - either full screen or drawn box but that is what I want.
As for the 'large space on toolbar' someone complained of - it is just a toolbar button. Move or remove it as normal. I just use the status bar button myself.
One feature request. Would like option to simply open screen cap in its own tab. That would make it easily available for a wide number of other plugins to act on or play with immediately.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.4). 

NoSquint

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is the best extension I have come across in quite some time.
It is a MUST HAVE if you have poor eyesight or maintain a system for somebody who does.
The power is in the exceptions capability.
The only thing I don't care for is the default zoom setting being at 120% upon install. (why not just leave it at 100?)
Also... an option to have the buttons down in the status bar would be nice.

Google Docs Viewer (PDF, DOCX, PPTX, XLSX, etc...)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Nice !
Seems to be working fine for me.
Much prefer this to something that messes with all the link on the page.
Would like an option to just have it open with a left click as the default viewer...
Google Docs has save and search features which is enough for quick web viewing for me.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.1). 

Google Docs Preview

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Not sure why but other file types (like .doc) do indeed appear not to work. I get a message on google docs page that this type of file is not supported.
I don't know if that is a bug or not.
Also... would be more helpful if I did not need to search in context menu. Perhaps a popup to choose to preview or bypass. Or even optional setup to just use the extension as default behavior.

Searchbar Autosizer

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

awesome !
Am I too sad an individual when my day is made by an extension update?
I'm so happy an update for this was put up for this for compatibility of the latest releases.
I like it on my desktop well enough... but on the laptop where space is at a premium it is truly awesome !

thanks....

Globefish Instant Translator & Expression Checker

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Pretty nice.
Would be great if the fish on the status bar had a context menu which including translating the entire current page.
A few settings along with that for same tab, new tab, etc...
That would make it about complete for me I think.

Speed Dial

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I had previously rated this as 4 stars and listed a few problems I had encountered with clear not working for dials, etc.
After contacting the developer, at his invitation in a reply to my review, he asked a few questions and made some suggestions of things to try.
Over the course of a day of back-and-forth he narrowed to a probable conflict with a few other extensions I was running.
He hit it bang-on. It was not interacting correctly if I had the hyperwords addon set to anything but default behavior for its popup.
With that changed, this speed dial extension began working perfectly.
So five stars for dedication for a really, really great addon.

Speed Dial

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Pretty nice but slightly clunky.
Wrestled with the weather dial for about half hour. It wanted to set automatically to a city about a half hour away. I wanted the city 4 miles away.
I could not find a way to change it.
Clear button also does not work for me on any dial.
Only way I've found to delete a dial is assign it to a new group using drag and drop and then delete that group.
Will also not let me change a dial to something else unless I have dragged the one there to some other position.
All in all very nice and I especially like that I can set it up how I want, not just have it auto-tune my most visited sites.

Patch For Library

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

GREAT !!
Only bug on the list which I had noticed in my work flow was Bug 312852.
But man, it was driving me insane to deal with that as I drag to the bookmark toolbar all the time. It's my preferred usage.
So this extension saved me from pulling my hair out and screaming in the middle of the night.
Thanks a million!
