My Reviews

Reddit on Youtube

Working until a while ago Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I was working perfectly until a few days ago (more?) when it just stopped respecting the "Don't show Reddit on this channel" checkbox.

It's a shame, really, it is otherwise going great. I switched it back to G+ globally.

Restartless Restart

Good Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Would be perfect, but it doesn't work on Firefox 64. Don't know why, it just doesn't.

Used it for years, recommend, alas, I want 64 bits.

Morning Coffee

Beautiful Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Too bad this isn't maintain any more (it seems) but it's a must have. Wholeheartedly recommended.

I only with is had a past due check. If a site is set to Sunday only and I don't view the page Sunday, then it should pop them on Monday. Other than that, it's perfect.

mKiosk: Kiosk Mode for Firefox

Almost great Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It took _forever_ to set up.

a) It recommends ESR, but installs and works on normal FFX, but poorly. Disable "options", "downloads", "addons" didn't work, etc. I ended up uninstalling FFX and installing ESR just for this. It simply goes ape on 39-41.

b) Windows 10 does away with window margins. Firefox is correctly written, and full screen is adjusted correctly (Clientheight = Screen.height). mKiosk cheats and fake-full-screens by setting height, width (width=Screen.Width), etc which has 2 issues: First, it leaves a 4-pixel space around FFX in full screen which looks bad (maximize and full screen are not the same, and W10 shows it). Second, because it's not full screen, using fingers to drag stuff in FFX pulls the window down, exposing the stuff underneath. It can be fixed by entering admin mode (F11) which requires a password, and then hitting F11 again, which puts FFX is actual-real-fullscreen. Not a lot of work, but I have to be there to do it.

c) For some reason, Bookmarks toolbar is glued to this extension like crazy. Every time you exit client mode, it pops the sidebar, even when disabled, which makes auto-zoom extensions zoom poorly, which, in turn, makes the page look ugly. It also has Bookmarks on top, why Bookmarks over Bookmarks?

d) Start fullscreen checkbox becomes disabled after install, meaning I can't use another addon of Firefox's own full screen start any more; this addon makes FFX its twisted kind of full screen, which is not only too small on W10 but also the wrong size FFx making carefully crafted pages no longer fit, adding a scrollbar for 3 pixels.

e) I am unable to replicate this every time, MAYBE it's just in FFX normal (I thought it was in ESR, who knows), but sometimes mKiosk opens a NEW home page, instead of fresh start. I end up with 2 tabs, and that insanely ugly tabbar pops up. I'm not sure why that happens. Maybe my shortcut got mixed up and I started a HTML home page instead of just FFx. Who knows.

MOST of this isn't an issue. Which is why I'm giving it 4/5, it's a decent kiosk addon. However, the full screen hack has to go away (it's important) and options have to be optional, don't gray out full screen. I can install a different addon that makes FFx full screen. Another that auto-zooms. One extension cannot be the end-all on a target system, even if pretty good.

As soon as this gets a F11 full screen patch, I'm upping it to 5*.

Classic Theme Restorer

Absolutely. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is what addons should be.

Updated, reliable, customizable. Small wonder this is the top rated addon on AMO.

Yet Another Smooth Scrolling

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I wish it worked.

Scrolling is excellent, I love the fact that I can flick faster by muscling the wheel, and it's pretty good, BUT it has too many things wrong with it.

Scroll boxes, some comments sections, text boxes, Youtube notifications, all refuse to scroll, instead scrolling the page.

I'm too used to the niceties of FFx to give up localized scrolling. Also, the bouncy edge doesn't render backgrounds, but renders elements, which is kinda ugly.

I don't know if there is a way to fix it. And since the dev didn't include a fast on/off (that I could find) I'm afraid it will stay disabled.

4/5 because it's a great addon, it works, and I like it. Unfortunately, no, thanks.

Forecastfox (fix version)

Working Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great so far.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2.4f.1-signed). 

YouTube Center

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Not working. Changes nothing. Hitting "settings" opens Youtube.com page. Maybe not compatible with latest Firefox?

Flashblock

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Flash still works fine, but appears that some HTML5 video still plays anyway (youtube) on FF36.

Pretty please fix?

Stop Tube HTML5

Not on 36 it doesn't Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Doesn't work on current Firefox 36. I hear the audio playing and the video seems to be streaming, but invisible. Clicking restores video without delay, reinforcing the feeling the video was playing anyway and was hidden.

Remember Passwords

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The new goggles do nothing, I am reduced to using an archaic form filler for passwords on some sites. Funny thing is, it saves on my bank account, but not on other sites. We need consistency.
Please bring user choice back.

Image Zoom

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Don't know what everyone is on about. Just hold RMB over image and wheel it in and out for instant image viewing.

This addon is worth its weight in gold. If it had weight. you know what I mean.

Classic Theme Restorer

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Dear God what have they done to the blasted browser? Thank you and keep up the good work.

Five stars for an addon that undoes your "enhancements" is a pretty clear sign.

YouTube High Definition

Wow Rated 5 out of 5 stars

104 reviews, 104 five star reviews. Well, I'm not breaking the combo, this addon works and works well. If you mass-watch a bunch of videos, this is invaluable.

I also like that if you have tabs open and you restart it resets all tabs to HD, so it works retroactively, you don't have to refresh each tab to make it work.

Translate This!

Shortcut Rated 1 out of 5 stars

For choosing a shortcut key you KNEW was so close Ctrl+t, Shift+T, Alt+T you are a cold hearted bastard and I hope you choke.

My keyboard is busted and it took me 10 min to type this. I hope for months you get a message without an X over your bank transactions, you Control key stealing b*stard.

Simple Currency Converter

OK Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Pretty good idea, but it needs to be fiddled with to have a decent behavior. It is very hard to use when reading an article, for example, where it randomly jumps between an English text and local text. Solved by switch off and use button. I would have much preferred something like select text and right click - a menu bar could display the converted sum; much like Converter does and Google Translate addons - they are less intrusive.

But, that is not the reason it has 4/5 stars, it's because the parser goes bananas at some points. It has translated $3 as "$3-$300" which then converted to 995 RON (10 RON ($3)00) which is unusable. I checked the HTML, it is plainly stated " $300 ", no magic.

When it is stable, it will deserve a 5 star status, objectively and a 4 star status for being intrusive, subjectively.

Also, Firefox complains it was slow to start when a tab has ~10 prices or more on a page.

Fast Video Download

Can't stand it Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It's not worth it. Search thing in status bar, right click menu, search engines, everywhere.

"Off" setting is a joke, only disables one setting.

Really, ignoring user wishes is the fastest way to a one star review. Abusing the UI also helps. We sacrifice functionality to keep the UI lightweight and you add as much as other 100 other addons. Tried to live with it, can't.

Unless you want every single thing in Firefox invaded by a 150 item menu, STAY AWAY.

Facebook Blocker

Not so good. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Good idea, but it logs me off every time I access a game or application, can't send requests or gifts.

Since I have to login again after every click on an application, it's more trouble than just logging off or using two browsers.

NEW Glasser by SzymekPL

Very nice, but doesn't work with ForecastFox - the writing is gone.
