My Reviews

Self-Destructing Cookies

No Icon To Control It Rated 2 out of 5 stars

In Firefox v28.0 there is no icon to control this add-on. I have the add-on bar enabled and I have quadruple checked the Customize Toolbar options available to me, as well as having checked the add-on's own options. Yes, I've restarted the browser. I want to use this add-on, but it doesn't want to be used.

SmartVideo For YouTube

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

All of these options, but not a one to set a default volume.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.97). 

Dr. Body Narrow

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

EyeFinity and Surround gaming users, this is what you're looking for. The name is very odd, but it does exactly what you've been wanting. No more manually resizing a browser window because full screen spans all 3 monitors.

Ghostery

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I use this and thoroughly enjoy it, particularly in light of how incredibly invasive Facebook is becoming. It's a great all around too to avoid that kind of mess. As others have said, it goes great with NoScript.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.6.0.1). 

AutoProxy

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Useful, but still problematic and frustrating. It forces Tor to be the default proxy, and the option to set your own default proxy is summarily ignored (the option of selecting a default proxy is provided, but doing so is either broken or is deliberately forced to be Tor, I can't say which).

The UI is also pretty awful. Adding the first rule is rather problematic until you get one or two to finally stick, and the wildcard method of adding web addresses is generally pretty good, but it is sometimes ignored.

In short, this is a long way from Switchy on Chrome, but it's the only automatic proxy switch that I can find for Firefox here on Mozilla.org. It only gets the job half done because it forces Tor (and I would prefer to default to i2P), but it is better than nothing. At least I can still easily connect to eep sites, and I can still route certain domains through a proxy.

This plugin also takes over the Network configuration window under Firefox's Options : Advanced : Network, which is a little irritating.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4b2.2011041023). 

QuickPasswords

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent! One of my passwords is over 40 characters long. I was dreading typing that beast out, so this is exactly what I was needing.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.8). 

Targeted Advertising Cookie Opt-Out (TACO)

No, thanks. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

What I know is this:

1.) I did not choose to have this "abine" installed.
2.) It's broken, forcing a "re-install this" error message each time that the browser starts

Honestly, this is the wrong way for a new privacy company to get their products out. You don't just suddenly invite yourself onto people's machines, regardless of your intentions. Also, your product should probably work..

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.01). 

SafeCache

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is exactly what I want, but for cookies. Example: When I visit www.google.com it should not read my login from the cookie that was set at YouTube.com. I know that they're the same company, but I would I would LOVE to see this exact same segregation done to cookies.

Also, this plugin specifically looks quite nice. This will become a part of my "must" install on new FF installs.

Use Nightly Tester Tools Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Does not work with the latest Firefox. Use Nightly Tester Tools to force compatibility until this add on is updated.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.8). 

OptimizeGoogle

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I was a bit dismayed when I saw that the original was dead. It's good to see that it lives on!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.77). 

DisableBackspaceNavigation

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love you...
...and I don't even want your Bud Lite.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3). 

Fasterfox

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Download is broken. Get a corrupted file error when FF attempts to install it.
