My Reviews

Amazon Assistant for Firefox

Good for price comparison, not compatible with security oriented plugins. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The price comparison banner is nice for consumers.

Once you get the assistant working it just displays "deals" (random suggestions of stuff to buy) with a link to your wish and registry lists. Clicking this causes your browser to navigate to your wish list page.

This extension is not compatible with browsing safety oriented plugins, e.g. NoScript using default settings. The assistant will just display a blank window with a perpetual spinning icon. However, it is possible to get it working if you are willing to compromise browsing safety and can spend some (probably a lot) of time experimenting with settings.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (10.1602.8.800). 

New Tab Override (browser.newtab.url replacement)

Simple interface and easy options. Hope to see continued development. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very nice plugin. It would be especially nice if it could duplicate the current tab with its history (like Clone Window could do).

+1 star - thanks for acknowledging my request
another star pending.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.3.1). 

Patch For Library

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very helpful patch which allows the user to edit the smart folder "places query" to include a sort order. Changes smart folders from a novelty to a useful feature.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.4). 

SearchPlaces

Useful for Sorting Bookmarks in Smart Folders Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This is a handy add-on for applying a sort order to the bookmarks your smart folders. However if find that v1.2.0 still does not correctly display the sort order for titles in the dialog box, so the user needs to inspect the URI line directly before saving. Also keep in mind that the new sort order displays immediately in Organize Bookmarks, but Firefox (v 3.6.4) must be restarted for the new sort order to be applied to the smart folder during use.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.0). 

Scientific Calculator

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I like this calculator but the reinstall trick for 3.6 doesn't work for me. Firefox eventually re-inactivates the add-in.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.9.1). 

TabCloser

handy but less than perfect Rated 3 out of 5 stars

A handy utility in principal, but the confirmatory dialog box tends to defeat the purpose of this add-on.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.03). 

MD5 Reborned Hasher

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Integrates nicely with the FF download manager. Easy to use.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.1). 

KeePass Helper

Nifty helper for KeePass Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Facilitates construction of unambiguous target window strings for KeePass. It could further simplify construction of KeePass target window strings if it included a capability to copy the new title string. Excellent job!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.4).
