Lightbeam for Firefox

Collusion: Bad news from a good add-on. A call to action. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Worked great for me but with learning comes some serious privacy concerns and responsibility for taking action with your new-found knowledge.
After using this add-on the first time I had the same queasy feeling I had when I learned who grocery stores sell your buying habits to (remember that little discount card they ask you to swipe every time). They're not quite as altruistic as they seem making more money selling your private buying habits than they lose in discounts.
I look forward to being able to right click a node in Collusion to easily block a site. Right now many of the sites I added manually did not get blocked.
It would also be nice to have a list/file of the blocked sites so they could be easily poured into another computer's Firefox browser the way bookmarks can be today.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.16.3). 

Duplicate Tab

Most useful extension I use Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Without a doubt this is the one extension I hold off upgrading for. It is, by far, the most useful add-on I use. Once you get accustomed to using it, it is very hard to be without it. I agree with several others; IT SHOULD be an integral part of Firefox. Please keep it updated. Thanks.

I have loved this add-on in the past. Have even considered it almost indispensible but I hasn't worked for a while and doesn't appear to with 3.6. Hopefully it will soon.

What Happened? Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I'm really sad to give up this add-on. It has been so useful for so long. If I load it I can no longer switch videos in YouTube without a delay of 30 seconds to several minutes. Uninstalling it solves the problem instantly. The problem is consistent. Where can I download an older version or does anyone know of a fix?
It's not fair for me to rate it as it was five stars and now it merits few.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.6.5). 

Duplicate Tab

Antoher dead add-on? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

All the other add-ons I use with Firefox 3.5 have been updated except Duplicate Tabs which is easily my most useful add-on. It's sad, but I've seen no evidence that there will be an updated version of this terrific add-on. Does anyone know otherwise?

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Easily the most used, most useful and most missed (in Firefox 3.5) add-on I use on a day-in day-out basis. How do I make a donation?

TinyUrl Creator

Use an alternative shortener Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This link used to work great with tinyurl.com but hasn't now for some time. An easy fix is to switch to a different shortener. Go into options and select another. I'm now using shrunklink.com that works fine. Hopefully, the tinyurl.com link will get fixed one day.
