My Reviews

PrefBar

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

My favorite extension - thanks for being so versatile and up-to-date! I've been using PrefBar for years on Firefox, K-meleon and Seamonkey.

A small nag in FF 4 Beta 7: Whenever I have customized my Firefox toolbar layout, PrefBar appears to want to load all its unused buttons and options. All is well again after I restart Firefox.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.1.1.1-signed). 

Status-4-Evar

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Nice & nifty - except the status bar progress meter (that you can turn on with "make the toolbar item always visible") which doesn't do anything, neither on downloading nor on reloading webpages. I'm using FF 4 beta 7.
EDIT: Seems this was due to the "Black Office" theme I was using - it works with the LavaFox theme.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2010.11.20.19). 

Xclear

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

As far as I can tell, the Windows version of FF doesn't erase the clipboard when you mark search text, so all it does for those folks is add the "clear button".

CustomizeGoogle

Needs an update Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I've been using it forever, usually it worked great. For some time it didn't convert the page link right (left the "&usg=..." string in), and from today on it doesn't work at all.
Can anybody confirm this?

SortPlaces

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Correction to previous review: ... Sort Bookmarks Menu doesn't restore Firefox 2 behavior, it also doesn't work an a per-folder basis (yet).

Sort Bookmarks Menu

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Great for sorting all your bookmarks with one click - but what if you want to sort each folder differently, just like in Firefox 2?

SortPlaces does, or doesn't do, more or less the same. Let's hope for good things to come...

SortPlaces

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Well, nice start. It allows me to sort the "main" bookmarks containers in Firefox 3, but what if I want to have my bookmarks sorted using different criteria? Example:

- Bookmarks toolbar: manual sort
- Bookmarks menu: sort automatically A-Z with folders first
- Some special subfolder: sort by Date added

Would be nice if it were possible. For now, I'll have a look at "Sort Bookmarks Menu". This should restore Firefox 2 behavior.

FoxyProxy Standard

A bit confusing Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Didn't figure out at first I had to manually add a proxy to define URL patterns... you should add a very basic quick tutorial.
- Status bar animation isn't working - no visual confirmation if proxied or not - how about some info on mouseover?
- Privacy bar toolbar was missing and couldn't be restored, had to use safe mode and reset all toolbars (2.00.12)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.7.1).
