Download YouTube Videos as MP4

okay Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Doesn't meet my needs (1080), but I give you a high score for explaining WHY you don't have 1080. Other software didn't explain at all.

Youtube Downloader 4K - Video Downloader

useless...? Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Only showing 720p for "HD" when my video is 1080p60fps. I downloaded this because youtube's built-in feature to download my OWN videos was only giving me 720p30fps...this doesnt help at all

Why did my review get deleted? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

My review got deleted for some reason? Wtf?

This add-on is great when it works but it hasn't worked in over a month. First it was having fetching issues but now all it shows me is Translate "{0}"

Really was the best. Shame it stopped working. Will it keep checking for updates but I doubt there will be one after all these years...

µBlock

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Personal tests show ublock using 1.7 MBs after over 24 hours of my browser running. Adblock Plus was using 15 MBs. That may seem like a big difference, however it is not. People claiming it makes your browser faster must be on extremely old PCs or have other conflicts with Adblock Plus. I've done hundreds of real-world tests going on websites I do normally using a tool that measures page loading speed and the difference was none. Sometimes the pages would load faster with ABP and sometimes it would load faster with ublock. I took a star off because the description feels like the author is trying to claim this add-on is factually faster than ABP when it's not; again it makes zero difference on several of my PCs that are 3-5 years old. The other star I removed because I felt the interface was terrible, but this one is more personal to my tastes and some people may prefer it. I had to restart my browser 3 times just to get the tabs in the options to actually work. Clicking on them did nothing at first.

edit: There's also reviews claiming that ABP requires separate add-ons to remove pop-ups...Completely BS lies. Been using it since it came out and have never gotten a pop-up and I don't have any other add-on for adblocking (except ublock, which is what I'm using for the next week to give it a fair chance to prove itself). I don't think reviews should contain lies about the competition.

I will re-review this in a week or two after further use.

Does what it says but.... Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Does what it says but also caused my browser to hang every time I tried to type. This issue was getting super annoying. I tried all normal fixes like disabling Hardware Acceleration and such. Eventually I remembered that the hanging started around the time I installed this add-on. So I disabled it, and bam....no more hanging. Uninstalled now.

Fast Dial

Loved this add-on for years Rated 3 out of 5 stars

4.12 was working fine except for an issue another issue was suggested to upgrade to 4.14 for. I figured it would fix the same issue for me but 4.14 made it so that my Session Manager would not work. And with 75+ tabs Session Manager is far more important to me. Confirmed it's a conflict with this add-on...disabling it fixed Session Manager. Guess i have to revert and go back to the script error

Canvas - Make your own Firefox theme

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

What everyone else is saying. Adds a stupid toolbar, begs for money, bland options.

InlineDisposition

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've had issues with Firefox ignoring my "Automatically open with this program" thingie, specifically with .torrents. This add-on solved my issue and other issues like .wavs in gmail. I

Context Search

Really liked this Rated 3 out of 5 stars

But after using it for 6 months it's gettign really annoying having to re-add everything every update. More annoying, is that I ALREADY have these engines bookmarked and working when I type into Firefox's address bar.

For example I'll type "MAL" to search myanimelist, but this add-on uses the Mini-tooolbar which I guess uses a different set of engines because it ignores the 7 engines I have shortcuted to the Address bar. I hate that mini-search bar because it's a waste of space when the address bar does the exact same things, so I wish this add-on would read the Engines from the address bar as well since apparently every Firefox update deletes the mini-search bar custom data or something while my address bar shortcuts always work.

Basically, to specific what I mean is, when you add shortcuts to the ADDRESS BAR, it "Saves" them as "Bookmarks" so no matter what an update does, Firefox recognizes them. This add-on seems to save as a config somewhere that gets overwritten every time Firefox updates. Using the bookmark system would be much better.

Stratiform

This add-on will save us all, I hope Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I honestly dont use every option, but it has the best tab customization I can find. Unfortuantely it doesnt work in Firefox 29, the biggest change to Firefox tabs in a long time. I keep clicking ABOVE the tabs in the empty space when trying to change the tabs or close them with middle click. I hope this will be updated soon and I hope it has the option to remove that stupid gap. I'm not tech savy enough to do it myself, so I'll keep this add-on installed despite it not working, in hopes for the update.

Gmail Notifier (restartless)

best of it's kind Rated 4 out of 5 stars

With some slight bugs. Support page linked previously wants me to register for some site I'm never gonna use otherwise so that's not happening.

"I've been using this extension and I like its simplicity. However, lately, there's been an annoying bug where the widget button keeps moving to the right of the top toolbar. Whenever I place it at the first position, right next to the location bar dropdown (I have no search box), in the next restart it will be on the far right of all the buttons again."

^^^^ I've been having this exact same issue for months on end. Super annoying

Edit: Again, I'm not gonna register for some website just to report a bug that a lot of people ( I see the threads there about the issue already, so it seems like you dont evne know what's causing it yet...after all these months). I'm also having the bug where it shows up on my Windows bar despite having that feature disabled. It's really getting irritating having to move the icon back every time I open my browser and enable/disable the taskbar thing every time as well.

RSS Ticker

I needed this Rated 3 out of 5 stars

for so long I've been using this add-on. I love it. Lately though, it's not refreshing often enough and I'll get like 30 updates when I restart browser for the first time in 3 days. I checked the options because I remember there was an option to change refresh interval. I cant seem to find it anymore...Along with a lot of other features that use to exist. I love that it's on the toolbar but it looks like I might need to move onto something else.

good add-on. very useful Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very very useful. Only issue is that every time I restart my computer and randomly otherwise, it resets all the settings to just Google and Wikipedia

Integrated Google Calendar

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Does what it says. Really useful for when I'm at my computer and find things I want to remember. Thanks to Google Calendar, I'll get the notifications on my phone no matter where I am. I just wish there was a Context Menu to "add to calendar" or something like that. I'll try contacting the dev to suggest

gtranslate

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It's only flaw is sometimes it gives an error from Google Translate. But this happens so rarely, I believe it's on Google's end or my ISP. I'd say maybe once every 3 months or so. The reason I use this add-on instead of other alternatives, is because this one does NOT overwrite what is displayed on the webpage, but instead shows the translation on the context menu pop up. Very good for learning.

Add-on Bar -_- Rated 3 out of 5 stars

But it's biggest issue is that every update it forces my Firefox add-on bar to reappear. The add-on bar is one of the worst features about Firefox so I dont know why you feel the need to force it back on all the time. A bug perhaps? Either way I'm seeing less use of this add on lately
