My Reviews

Lightning

Frequent incompatibilities Rated 3 out of 5 stars

While the extension is nice, it is quite difficult to get the correct version for your Thunderbird and OS.

I recently accidentally upgraded from Thunderbird (well, Icedove) 17 to 24.4 and had to upgrade Lightning as well, but neither the current version nor the recommended 2.6.4 would run correctly. One even prevented Icedove from launching without safe mode.

Like I said, there's a history of this, so once you get it working, don't touch it!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.6.4). 

Screen Capture Elite

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Developer is a bit pushy with getting users to view their website -- to the extent of opening a special page as soon as the user clicks "uninstall". Kind of creepy.

Extension basically works, but I don't trust the dev.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.0.20). 

Certificate Patrol

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent job. This puts my mind at ease.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4). 

WIPS

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Unintuitive interface, buggy region selector, and I had to dig through the XPI file to read some of the keyboard shortcuts whose explanations were mangled by the Help dialog's layout.

Screenshot Pimp

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Terrible. Installed with a Bing toolbar, Facebook button, Stumble button... Horrid.

No Tooltip Timeout

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This was a great extension. (I'm on 3.6 now, so I no longer need it.)

Password Exporter

No longer maintained, has serious bugs Rated 1 out of 5 stars

No longer maintained, and has serious bugs regarding data encoding.

Will fail if your passwords include certain characters.

(There has been no response on the bug-tracking site on this high-priority issue.)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1). 

Abduction! - Webpage Screenshots Screen Capture

Excellent, except: Garbage appears on long pages Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Abduction is an excellent page grabber. Only one problem encountered so far:

On long pages, garbage appears near the bottom of the page.

Screenshot: http://lab.brainonfire.net/drop/Abduction-extension-long-page-failure.png

There are areas with screwed-up background color, areas with tiled images, and places where lines of text are duplicated. I even saw one instance where pieces of a page in another tab were pulled in.

The Screen Grab extension produced similar results, so this may be a bug in Firefox or Gecko itself.

System: Firefox 2.0.0.14, Abduction 2.019, Ubuntu Linux 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon), 32-bit Intel PC, factory graphics card.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.019). 

Adblock

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

It works, but I think it still has a big ol' memory leak.

I use Adblock Plus these days, which was forked from the Adblock codebase.
