My Reviews

Google Shortcuts - All Google Services at a glance

Excellent menu bar rea estate saver; could get even better Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A nice little add-on that makes sense and prettifies the FF experience. Some great suggestions from other users earlier. Here's my 2 cents:
- Get rid of, or make user-configurable, the "Google" in the names of all the services. "Google" is redundant and takes up space. At least make this a user option.
- Add Google Transit, please. (Let it read "Transit").
- Finally, I vote that you take the radical step of changing the name of your extension. GButts ain't pretty at all. Thanks.

Lifesaver Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's comforting to know that my add-ons are getting backed up, as well as a lot of other things if I configure it, like my whole Firefox profile.

Can anyone please give me a direct link to instructions on how to
1) copy my profie to a second computer with Firefox already installed, and
2) copy my profile to a new Mac machine (from my current Windows XP).

Google Reader Notifier

Uninstalled this adware - beware. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Yes, this is adware. Don't support this developer and his b(ad) practices.

Please click on the "See all reviews..." link below and scroll for the real story.

Please let Mozilla know this extension is crapware.


Time-saver Rated 5 out of 5 stars

One of my top 5, saves me time, *very* configurable & intelligent, will pay off huge if one spends 15 minutes reading the instructions & exploring the options, always improving, doesn't add a big resource load.

A great option to have. Bottom line: saves me time. Love it. (thanks)

Better Gmail 2

Love this thing. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Makes my Gmail more functional, and purtier too. Using with many of the new Gmail Labs gadgets without any hitches--never a problem in the past year. Thanks for your work

Co.mments Notifier

Developer AWOL -- proceed with caution. Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Hmm, would love to use, but the link to the developers homepage is a dead link, and from reading his blog it seems he's moved to Ireland. He doesn't accept comments on his own blog!

While I love co.mments and use it every day, I smell a fish here.

Better YouTube

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great! Nice alt. player, keeps the About Video open if you like it that way, and a couple of other useful options. The Download function makes an .flv file, which not very useful really. ,mp4 or .avi would be much appreciated.

NoScript Security Suite

Checkbox against each site...can this be implemented please? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Just saw this review down the page, and have to second would really speed things up, no?

"How about giving us a checkbox against each site so that we can change the permissions for multiple domains/addresses in one shot rather than having to do it one at a time? I have set Noscript to reload the page after each permission change, so when I go to a site like, I have to enable permissions for something like 5 or 6 sites and reload the page each time. Please consider this request. Thank you for your great work."

Thanks for your fantastic work. Everyone ought to throw this developer a bit of cash for his constant efforts. This means you :)

NoScript Security Suite

Clean cache, clear cookies -- does this change NoScript settings? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Sorry for the dumb question, but I've read the documentation and I haven't figured out this: sometimes I have to "Clear Private Data...", at least the cache or the cookies. When I do so, do I lose all the permissions I've set in NoScript for each site I come across? Some pages have 5 or more things to allow before a video plays, or a comment box is enabled, and to have to reset (meaning re-load) each page that many times really slows me down.

I hope that is a clear question. Thanks. Otherwise I think it's a great add-on, combined with AdBlock Plus and I feel I can enjoy safe sex, er, surfing.

good suggestions here Rated 4 out of 5 stars

...esp. from \"L Pop\" on what stats to list.\r\n\r\nAn alarm would make this completely excellent. ty.

Google Calendar Quick Add

simple, reliable, indispensible Rated 5 out of 5 stars

One click drops down my upcomings.

Ctrl ; creates a small quick-add box for an addition to one of my calendars.

Note to "aronin" (two reviews back): you don't need to click the "+" sign, silly. Just Ctrl ; is all. The developer should make that a little more clear for those who are very literal-minded when they read instructions.

thanks, man. This little extension is beautiful.
