My Reviews

Ant Video Downloader

It's back! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks for the v.2.4.7.10. It's finally working again on FF v24 after being crippled in FF v23! I just hope the video downloads aren't corrupted.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.4.7.10.1-signed).  This user has 3 previous reviews of this add-on.

X-notifier (for Gmail,Hotmail,Yahoo,AOL ...)

Lacks a master password Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I find this a great add-on for those who need to manage lots of web-based email accounts, even from the same webmail provider. However, it would be nicer if WMN would ask for a master password before it begins to check all emails right after you open the Firefox browser. That master password would then be active until the browser is closed.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.9.13.1-signed). 

Auto Context

Workaround for Firefox 5.+ Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hasn't been updated for a long while and as-is, it's not compatible with 4.* and 5.*. Fortunately, modifying the line <em:maxVersion>3.7a1pre</em:maxVersion> to <em:maxVersion>5.0.*</em:maxVersion> in the install.rdf file works.

Meanwhile, it would be great to see 'google translate' added to the autocontext menu.

Firefox Sync for Firefox 3.5/3.6

Three or more stars for this? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Obviously, those who gave this addon 3 or more stars haven't tried Xmarks. I hope Firefox Sync would just take over Xmarks. Their features are a lot better. I'm sticking with Xmarks till it closes or until I find something more similar.

Anyhow, may I suggest (if it is not yet being considered as of this writing) that you include an automatic sync when the browser is idle to make sure that all settings are up to date and also a rollback feature to say 10 previous saves?

DownThemAll!

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It would be nice if there is an option to rename a file after it has been downloaded under the Manager and choose whether the time stamp would be be based on the date of the original file or the date a file was downloaded.

Ant Video Downloader

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hooooray! The ant is back. Now I can kick out the other FLV downloaders from my Firefox extensions.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4).  This user has other reviews of this add-on.

Ant Video Downloader

Best one-click FLV downloader Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The best FLV downloader I've used..... until Firefox upgraded to verion 3.5.x. I hope ant.com could catch up with another update.

Ant Video Downloader

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

We are eagerly waiting for Ant to be compatible again with Firefox 3.5.x. I'm not too happy using other FLV downloaders.

WorldIP - Geo Add-on with Security Features

IP display location Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I now seem to like this better than Flagfox because it shows my current IP as well. However, would it be nicer if there is a choice of where to display the IPs and the flags whether at the address bar, status bar or both?
