My Reviews

Hanabi 7

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Love this one! Great button text contrast and it's fairly even. It'll be my New Year's theme. Many thanks!

Los Angeles

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I'm not sure why the left side is completely black. I think the entire skyline would have been better. Outside of that, it's very nice. Love the button text contrast!

Los Angeles with Snow

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

A nice one, but I don't particularly care for the cornflower button text. It's difficult to see. Other than that, I like this.

New Year

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very good! The button text is easily seen which is a problem with many of these.

Celebration - Fireworks

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It's good, but the text is really light. I'd prefer a better contrast on the text.

ColorfulTabs

WTF?! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I've used colorful tabs for so many years. I cannot tell you how disappointed I am that it now has to go. I'm fairly certain that this is an error, but I don't know what really happened. The update I just got makes my tabs completely unreadable and I can't fix it! There is no setting for us to choose our own font colors, to fix it ourselves.

Additionally, to get any support whatsoever users MUST join yet another forum. NOT! I'm sick to death of being forced to visit their personal sites. Either offer support here, or don't put your addon here! That should be the rule for all of them.

Say goodnight Colorful Tabs!

====UPDATE====
Now that I've tinkered around with Tab Mix Plus' tab color settings, I've come to see that I don't even need Colorful Tabs anymore.

recipefox

Works fantastic! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Originally I posted a dismal review, but I finally managed to get this to work. I had to download a newer version from Sourceforge AND upgrade/install current Java AND uninstall previous java. Phew!

All that said, this is an amazing addon and such a time saver. It still needs a little tweaking, but that's a minor issue when it comes to all the data it automates. I know Frank has really worked hard on this.

This addon is legendary as for as the Living Cookbook community is concerned.

Many thanks Frank!

BBCodeXtra

Excellent extension! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

First off, @bruceb: You can add any customized code. Tools > Options > Extensions > BBCodeXtra > Options > Custom tags then add them.

I do have a suggestion though. I would LOVE to be able to import/export settings. I use several computers and Firefox's browser sync doesn't sync settings. I could keep a copy of the settings in dropbox and quickly upload it to any computer.

Many thanks though! This has been one of my favorites for years. I cannot live without it.

Tinseltown

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Pretty yes, but it doesn't play nicely with common addons. I can't even organize my Bookmarks without it crashing and I only use Xmarks.

Nope. I had to uninstall to get Firefox back to normal. I'll not use it again. It's way too much of a pain.

BBCodeXtra

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works fine in 3.5.2! I've had this extension since practically its inception and not once have I ever had an issue. It works just as promised, BUT...

If I had to make a wishlist item, it would be to allow me to make my own tags for things that I frequently do or use. This has been a requested feature for years (and not just from me), but it never comes to fruition. For that reason, I give it a 4 and not a 5.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.5.6).  This user has other reviews of this add-on.

Classic Compact

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Update: I was directed to the latest version which is pending approval and fixes the minor issue.

I have to say that I am loving this theme more than any other theme I've ever used. This one is a keeper!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.2.2). 

Forecastbar Enhanced

RedDwarf is wrong Rated 5 out of 5 stars

RedDwarf has no idea what he's talking about. Since this extension is an enhanced version of Forecast Fox (one I've used for YEARS) then I can say with authority that it's used Accuweather for a VERY long time. Yes, for a short while they used weather.com, but weather.com made it difficult and limited the use of their site. Not very friendly at all.

So... RedDwarf be sure to research something before you post. It's been at least 3 years since Forecastfox used weather.com.

Better YouTube

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works like a charm!

yetsune: You're 100% WRONG. This was updated in July 2008 and your post was made in March 2009. This means that it had only been 8 months since the update, not the year and a half that you claimed.

I have absolutely ZERO screen issues and the download is perfect. I'm even using Ubuntu so that says a lot.

Gina: You're brilliant and you're very missed at Lifehacker!

TinyUrl Creator

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm not having any problems here as others have reported. I'm on Firefox Firefox/3.0.10 and it does just fine.

It's worth noting however that even the official tinyurl.com site has trouble with SOME URLs. Not all, but some.

I've tested this with a variety of sites and it does what it's supposed to comparably with the official tinyurl.com site.

Great help, this extension!

Dark Revisited

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The only serious issue, which makes me unable to use it, is that the pop ups from Forecast Fox and Gmail manager are washed out and unreadable.

Other than that this is very well done! It looks fantastic with Colorful Tabs.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.5). 

TV Manager

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love this extension! I can't wait to see how this one grows. I love its simplicity.

If I could add to a wish list, it would be to add favorite shows. Perhaps a permanent word search or something.

Other than that though, this is an amazing little addon that's very helpful.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.1). 

BBCodeXtra

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is quite helpful, but I'd really like to see a way to insert favorite code tags. A bit more customization would make it A1 perfect. Otherwise, I find this one of my most invaluable add-ons.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.5.6). 

Google Reader Notifier

No longer works. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I have to uninstall it for now as it no longer works. It worked fine up until 0.60. I would've emailed you to let you know, but you don't have anywhere on your site to notify you. Good luck with that.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.60). 

Copy Plain Text

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This was handy but it's too bad that it hasn't been updated yet. There has been plenty of time to do so as well.

Sorry, but I don't have a clue who ervee is, so I'm not planning on downloading their update AND I too don't recommend forcing FF3 into allowing this extension.

The truth is that this should have been updated by Jeremy sometime ago. Perhaps he's too busy but then a notice here would've been nice.

Google Bookmarks Button

Nice effort but... Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This is probably the best Gmarks addon so far. However I still do not like the way it handles long lists of bookmarks/tags/labels. When an addon can be written similar to the del.icio.us addon (located here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3615) then I'll move to Gmarks. I prefer typing the tag/label name rather than scrolling, scrolling, scrolling for one tag/label. *sigh* I really wish I could switch from del.icio.us.
