My Reviews

Ant Video Downloader

Works great but too sneaky Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Definitely does a great job downloading videos but why is the functionality to show traffic (along with sending back a list of sites you visited) included? Doesn't add anything to the functionality and unless you visit the preferences and turn it off, your browsing history is sent to ANT.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.4.7.4). 

HttpFox

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I want to love this but I'm unable to copy the rows so I can't grab the info and use it in another app.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.10). 

Quicker Filer

More shortcut possibilities Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Love this --- rediscovering Thunderbird and needed an alternative to MsgFiler for Apple and SimplyFile for Outlook/PC.

Only problem is I couldn't create a short cut that used a DIGIT rather than a letter. I wanted to use ALT-9 (just because that's how I had the other two filers configured) but Quicker Filer only seems to allow letter combinations.

Also, the dialog width needs to be much longer so you can see the actual selection when you have nested folders.

Ghostery

Great idea but hangs! Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Darn it --- hangs Firefox 3.6 on my Mac --- had to disable it.

What a pity, it's a really nice add-on

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.2). 

BetterPrivacy

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Brilliant --- I didn't even realize this was an issue until I saw the article in NY Times recently.

This plugin is now installed on all machines I administer.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.44). 

NoScript Security Suite

Brilliant but now I need to block the noscript website! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Noscript is brilliant --- I love it to death. You gotta have it --- I have installed it on every machine in the house.

However, while it's wonderful to get frequent updates, it is painful that the browser keeps opening to the NoScript home page everytime, partially because it's slow to load and therefore I have to wait longer than I would like before I can use my browser for what I really wanted to do and partially because it's really annoying to see that page so often. I get it --- I've been using it for years, I KNOW about it --- I don't need to keep being reminded!

Please add an option to NoScript so that an update will not open Firefox to the NoScript page every time there's a minor update.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.9). 

Lexmark Toolbar

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Hmmm, if you have AdBlock already installed, it's not clear that this toolbar is worth the bother.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.1). 

SiteBar Client for Firefox 2.0.x

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Where's the version for 3.0? I can't live without this add-on.
