My Reviews

FoxyProxy Standard

Don't update to 5.0! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I am using Firefox more than 5 years - almost from the moment I have started using Firefox. I always enjoyed it's interface, possibility to switch proxy profiles - both manually and automatically, possibility to export settings.

Now with update to 5.0 we lost it all.
1. All settings are lost.
2. Import button does not work.
3. The interface is really ugly: it differs from overall interface of Firefox, now reaction on right button click, no possibility to view all proxy profiles etc.
4. Questionable "syncing" of proxy settings - I really don't need it as I can export settings in a cloud and import it on all my PCs.

Have to switch back to 4.6.5 and disable updating. Shame to developers!

IE View 2016

Stopped working Rated 2 out of 5 stars

With last FF update this addon stopped displaying itself in tab properties - no way to start IE any more.

User Agent Switcher

Works, but... Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This addon works, but I remove one star because it is not possible to set default agent - I have to switch it every time I restart the browser, This is really annoying. Another star is removed because author knows about this problem for a long time - and do nothing. At least - add the option to load default agent automatically at start.

Fire IE (FireIE, Enhanced IE)

Doesn't work in FF 52.0.2 Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Doesn't load dll. Neither patch nor adding plugin.load_flash_only helps. I suspect the patch should be updated.

Custom Buttons

Stops working after update to 51 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

All my buttons stops working after Firefox update to 51.0 (x64 version).

Easy DragToGo++

Doesn't work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

FF 50 x64 - does not work at all.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2016.8.15). 

Auto-Sort Bookmarks

Edited because the author did his job Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The new version seems to be OK

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.10.8). 

SmartWhois Launcher

Doesn't work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Doesn't work at latest FF x64.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.20.1-signed.1-signed). 

IE Tab V2 (Enhanced IE Tab)

Doesn't work in x64 Rated 2 out of 5 stars

FF 48.0.2 x64 - "Need a plugin to display the page" - so it is possible to open the page in IE only, not in FF window.

Smart-IP Connection Info

Doesn't work properly Rated 2 out of 5 stars

In FF 47 and 47.0.1 pushing the button doesn't open any window.

Объединённый словарь русской орфографии

Добавьте Thunderbird Rated 5 out of 5 stars

К сожалению, этот великолепный словарь не работает в Thunderbird. Большая просьба создать дополнение и к почтовику. Спасибо!

Boox

Beware of FF45 and later update with Boox! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This addon causes unpredictable lags and conflicts after updating to FF 45 and later.
Either use 44.x or disable Boox.
Too bad the author doesn't react on this.

SecondOpinion

For paranoid with private key Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This addon tries to scan every link and attachment in all e-mails. Taking into account public key restrictions and the number of e-mails I am receiving - it is completely useless. And the author didn't give a chance to tweak a policy of sucj scanning.

Video Preview

Buggy Crap Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This addon leads to some pages does not load at all (mega.nz for instance). Buggy crap was found and deleted immediately.

Extension List Dumper

Doesn't work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This addon doesn't work at FF 38.0.5 - it simply creates an empty file.

Siphon - Add-on Synchronizer

Really tired of this! Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I've used Siphon for a couple of years and now I completely remove it.
Why? OK. I'll explain it!
When you remove some of addons because of mistake on one PC - it will remove it on all others. And it's OK, but there is no way to see logs or revert changes back. Restoring backup doesn't help because once Siphon connects to account - it will do the same dirty job.
Why developers didn't add some functions to either correct the list of addons manually on the web site (which has no web interface at all and sometimes is down) or ask the user before doing some changes with possibility to undo them and overwrite incorrect settings on the web site - I don't know, but I'm really tired with it!

RequestPolicy

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It's an excellent addon.

As for new 1.0.0b7 (RequestPolicy Continued).

There was a good feature in latest stable build with import/export custom rules in text file. Looks like it is completely broken now - I cannot export anything form My Policy page. It is a pity, because it was a good feature for syncing policies at different systems. By the way it could be developed in true syncing - like a button, that means "Import and then Export" or even automatic syncing using some path (path could be to Dropbox folder for instance).

Maybe you can revert it back?

New Tab Tools

So-so... Rated 3 out of 5 stars

1. Export/Import settings feature doesn't work.
2. There is no icon in upper right corner to open settings of addon. Ones should only guess where is it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (23.1-signed). 

Vacuum Places Improved

Doesn't work Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Seems it doesn't work in 3.6.28: according to the icon it is time to compact db, but clicks doesn't lead to any action - the icon still in status bar.
