Great add-on. It's understandable that issues will occur....However what's more concering to me than a bug that eats memory and CPU usage...is the fact that this add-on keeps turning itself back on after I disable it. I have video footage if developer wants it...It's scary to me. edit: The add-on turning itself back on may be an issue with Firefox itself, so I won' deduct a point from that. Add-on has been great since it came out. One hiccup isn't worth bad reviews.

NoMiner - Block Coin Miners

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Does what it says it does, by disabling javascript. However, even clicking the button to turn the add-on off did not do so. I have to go into the add-on page and disable it entirely to get javascript working again. So this is kinda useless right now since I need javascript for most sites

Country Flag +

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Seems to working fine in Quantum but the flag seems to only recognize country. For example, every server in the US, the flag shows in Kansas even when the server is in California. Malwarebytes also calls it a PUP so that's very suspicious

Menu Wizard

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Good night, sweet Prince. Quite possibly one of the best add-ons that ever existed. Not sure how I'll live without. I fully understand it's not your fault that Mozilla is making it impossible for this add-on to continue to exist. Thank you for all the years of support.

Menu Wizard

I need this to live Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Does everything as advertised and is basically a requirement for me now. I also noticed I use like 4 of your other add-ons. Please make them compatible with WebExtensions if you can....I love them all.

Fast Dial

7/6/2017 update Rated 1 out of 5 stars

After spending the last week trying to figure out what is crashing my Firefox (no logs for some reason), I've figured out that it's Fast Dial that's causing the crashes. Makes sense, since there hasn't been an update since December. Developer seems to have completely given up. Forums don't seem to have any recent posts at all either?

Tab Groups

Honestly one of the last things keeping me on Firefox Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've pretty much REQUIRED this add-on since Firefox first implemented it into the browser. I got scared when they removed it, and you saved me. Now I see Mozilla has made it so you can't continue with this. I don't know if I'll have a reason to stick with Firefox after that. To me, the current add-on system was what made Firefox stand out. There were so many add-ons that did things either so much better than their Chrome versions, or did things that I couldn't find a Chrome version of at all. Thank you for supporting this add-on for as long as you have. I really hope someone can figure out a way to save this...

Screengrab!

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

Firefox tried to copy this with "Page Shot". It works well but it doesn't let me save to clipboard ONLY. Screengrab lets me do that. Page Shot forces me to either download the screenshot, or do "save" it to their servers. I don't like that. So, Screengrab is still the best.

uBlock Origin

I just got an ad on youtube WTF LOL Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Still a 5/5 but suddenly it didn't block a 15 second ad on youtube. Support site is in read-only mode and I can't find any other ways to contact the dev...but this is pretty big issue.

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

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.

Download Flash and Video

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

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

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.
