LastPass Password Manager

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Frustrating experience when reporting specific issues with website.Seems that Lastpass should pay us fro reporting issues since it can take them 3 months to actually admit that yes there is an issue with Firefox version of Lastpass. Firefox version of the extension takes second fiddle with respect to the Chrome version. Reason why I stopped being a premium user of Lastpass was due to the Firefox version of the extension seemingly having problem after problem and it takes forever for support to actually admit there was an issue.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.7.1).  This user has 4 previous reviews of this add-on.

LastPass Password Manager

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

No longer able to copy user name or password from the LP entry. Have to now edit the LP item to do that. Pain in the ass.

Also have a frustrating issue with errors like this
A script from the extension “LastPass: Free Password Manager” is running on this page, and making Firefox unresponsive.

It may be busy, or it may have stopped responding permanently. You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if it will complete.

LastPass Password Manager

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

How on earth did LP manage not to discover that c&p no longer worked. As well I had been using the original beta build from October 12th for the past month because the extension was not auto updating. The Lastpass website still is pushing down a non compatible FF57 install version of the extension. That may be the best since their current release is buggy. I was never happy with Lastpass Firefox development and stopped paying for Premium version after 5 years.

Policy Control - JavaScript and Flash blocker

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Just wanted to block Javascript on accounts.google.com and only that site. Instead extension defaulted to blocking all Javascripting on all websites.

Copy ShortURL

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Regarding the bit.ly documentation it was a bit of a struggle to get the appropriate OAuth token generated. Bit.ly service can also use OAuth Webflow token. This addon requires the simpler OAuth token and it has to be used in the extension's Custom URL pulldown option rather than Bit.ly option.

I was using a now deprecated URL shortener which had an option that would also capture the Title of the page and insert that into the clipboard. I found this useful when pasting the information into email or on Twitter. This way one could see what the URL is for and saves having to type that information in.

LastPass Password Manager

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Use to pay for premium version but stopped this year. FFox UI has issues making the extension cumbersome to use, the LP website has outdated version information and install from their website downgrades the Firefox to an older version.

Cutyfox URL Shortener (bit.ly, is.gd, goo.gl)

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Used this extension a lot when I was using Firefox. Now the extension no longer works in FF 55 let alone FF Nightly 57. Could not find any other extension that would also copy the title of the page along with the shortened URL.

Seem FFox decision to change the extension development process will kill off a lot of useful extensions. That was what made me stick with FFox for so long. Good bye Firefox.

Diigo Web Collector - Capture and Annotate

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This use to be an extension that had a simple button on the toolbar. Now it installs a toolbar that occupies space in the browser window to simply bookmark sites. A step backwards. Sad to see.

LastPass Password Manager

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Extension 4.1.32a seems to have gotten worse rather than better. New GUI has excessive whitespace especially on Preferences screen. Looks like font is zoomed in and window is non resizable. Means that you have to constantly scroll up and down.

Extension also login issue with websites where check boxes to prevent 1 being logged in have to remain unchecked. It fails to uncheck the box even though 3.3.2 has no such issue with sites. Lastpass was told of this issue months ago and still not fixed.

If you install the current 4.1.32 directly from Lastpass then the extension fills in fields better but its pulldown boxes are horribly slow to appear.

Seems development for Firefox is stalled.

Mail Merge

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Really handy extension for Thunderbird. Would like an option to reuse a template already designed with the various fields etc without the extension creating a copy of the same template during the mailmerge.

This is particular an issue when you have multiple people doing the processing.

Color Folders

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Went to change existing color on a folder and the extension is greyed out on each different view of my folders.

NextVid Stopper for YouTube

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This extension will not stop the next video in a predefined playlist from playing if the video is in full screen mode! This is a pain. The extension works fine if you are not viewing the video in fullscreen.

Weather Underground (Forecast Plus)

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I see the weather alerts option is on the to do list which is good since it will be more of visible indicator there is bad weather on the way. Unlike some oether reviews I will not compare this to another well known but abandoned Firefox weather addon.

Developers should be appreciated for all the hard work they put into developing addons and for all the guff they sometimes have to put up with from people who expect problems to be solved at a drop of the hat.

Forecastfox Weather

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It is sad to see an extension that I have used over the years become abandoned. Sure there are work arounds for getting the extension to display but the inabiity to change the settings is a sore point. You are still saddled with a extension that seems to be cast adrift.

I can sympathize with the developer though as end users can become pushy at times wanting something fix ASAP even though the extension is free.

So long Forecastfox I will miss you

Iconic Firefox Menu

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Does what it suppose to do. Been using it for the betas and now RC1 for FFox 4. Notice the icon is overlapping the first tab.

Snip-n-Tag

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Does not work in FFox 4b12. Have no option to use Goo.gl acct, and no icon anywhere including right mouse click.

Shorten URL (Bit.ly)

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Thought that this addon would work and accidentially discovered that it inserts tool bar icons that one can drag to the toolbar. However w FFox 4b7 the Win7 clipboard is not being update after numerous attempts on multiple websites.Tried it in 4b8 and it works fine. Thing that is missing in all of these url shorteners is the ability to copy the page title as well as the shortened url. Makes it handy when posting links so that people know what the link is about.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.53). 

Forecastfox Weather

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Really would like the ability to see weather warnings like tornadoes in the applet. Also really miss the configurability of information being prresented in the addon that was available in the pre Fox 3.6 versions.

1-ClickWeather

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

If you are in Canada and want weather alerts for your area forget about 1 click weather as it is US centric for alerts.
