My Reviews

IE8 Activities (Accelerators) for Firefox

Bug--every text selection event adds another Search with XXX to context menu Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The title says it all, every time I select text, I get an additional "Search with Google" in the context menu (the menu that pops up when I right click on a page). I fixed it by disabling IE8 Activities for Firefox. It might be a bug in combination with another addon (I have heaps), but I'm not sure.

BetterCache

Works with YouTube, read on... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This extension allows you to save YouTube videos from the cache with DownloadHelper, without having to download it a second time. In BetterCache settings, set the filter list as a whitelist, add video/flv as a mime-type (and maybe video/x-flv too), click OK.

Then go to a YouTube video page, allow the video to load, click on the DownloadHelper icon and select the cached version. (The non-cached version has the YouTube favicon beside it, the cached has two rectangles with a red arrow.) It should download instantaneously from your cache.

This doesn't allow the video to persist through back/forward navigation, as YouTube redirects you to a different location for the FLV every time you view the page. Perhaps when the extension author allows filtering by address as well as mime-type, whitelisting "www.youtube.com/get_video" will fix this.

(I gave this extension 4 stars because it needs interface improvements, but it's fine.)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.21).
