KeyScrambler Personal

100% CPU lockup Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Same here tom.

Kept getting 100 CPU lock, and very frustrating. Created a new Firefox profile, and adding back my add-ons one at a time to test.

First add-on was KeyScrambler and near immediately began getting 100CPU lockup. New profile again and added all my add-ons [except KeyScrambler] and no lockup at all.

I'm wondering if KeyScrambler has gotten too bloated now it supports so many different applications. I wish they'd just offer a basic version for Firefox and IE.

I used to love the KeyScrambler plugin, but can't use it now it is eating up my processor power. Power consumption rises with the CPU usage and I'm trying to keep my electricity bills down.

Utilizes 100% CPU
by tom_1st on March 4, 2009
Nice idea but implementation is buggy. After a while (some minutes) the Keyscrambler plugin takes 100% CPU load and never stops. I had to manually activate/deactivate all my plugins until i identified this specific plugin :-( Uninstalled it and everything went back to normal...

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.4.1.1).

Thanks Donna... I came here wondering if it was just my version that had messed up... but immediately found your great answer to removing that black tab bar stuff which is ugly and distracting.

Top job! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love it. Neat little add-on, really superbly integrated and works perfectly.

Flashblock

Top job! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent. I had my doubts about Flashblock because there was little by way of description, but it's brilliant, works superbly, and easy to use.

When installed, it blocks flash and instead displays the circular F symbol/icon (flash) with the play symbol.

If you want to see the flash you can click on play. If you want to permanently allow flash from a particular site you can do that easily, and if you change your mind and want to block flash from a site you can do that easily too. Love it!

I can now read my newspapers without being bombarded with heavy flash adverts slowing me down.

good work! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I like this alot.

It's design is so appealing and it's clear colored layout helps reduces strain on my outer-vision too. May lots of good things happen to you for making this excellent extension.
