My Reviews

Tile Tabs

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works great, very useful. Lets you view (and interact with) multiple pages in one window.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.6.1-signed). 

Tree Style Tab

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works fantastic as long as only one window is open. With a second window, trying to move tabs between windows usually just creates a zombie tab that can't be selected or closed, and other strange issues when opening tabs.
Concept is great and aside from this issue it works very well. Makes managing numerous tabs extremely simple.

SmartVideo For YouTube

Nice when it works Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Half the time videos just start playing immediately (exactly what I *don't* want). Tells me I need to whitelist some URL in adblock, but doesn't say what URL...

Redirector

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works great, been looking for such an addon for a while. Would like to see more control over the matching though - multiple exclude patterns, matching based on the target's MIME type?

Usability suffers a little from the small entry boxes and popup message for pattern testing (would benefit greatly from line breaks before the URLs). Otherwise works fantastic.

JavaScript Deobfuscator

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Works, but not very well. Could use some improvements:
-Show what variable(s) an anonymous function is assigned to so it can be backtraced.
-Clean up the code. There are still globs with hundreds of statements per line.
Also, nothing is showing up in the "Executed Scripts" tab.

surfclarity

Works, but interface is lacking Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It does what it says and that is something that Google has needed for a long time, because man am I sick of those "register to actually see the content" sites. However, it needs a bit of work in the visual department.

The most obvious problem is the hardcoded text colours. On a dark theme, the filter boxes end up having black text on a dark background. There should be no reason to hardcode these colours.
Additionally, the filtering doesn't take effect until the page has nearly finished loading, so for a while you may see some domains that would be blocked, which then suddenly disappear. Some sort of "result blocked" placeholder would at least help reduce confusion (especially if a filter blocks more than you intended), but much better would be to filter the results before they're even displayed, so I don't end up clicking them before they disappear and defeating the entire purpose of a filter.
It's also a little bothersome that you can't access the options through the standard "Preferences" button in the Add-ons list, nor remove the menu/status bar items which really aren't necessary.

I'd give 3 1/2 stars overall for the interface issues, but since I can't give fractional ratings and it does effectively block out those horribly annoying sites, I'll round up to 4.

Personal Menu (Personal Firefox Button)

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It's a good idea, though it'd be even nicer if the menu automatically appeared when the mouse was moved to the top, instead of having to press Alt. However, after pressing Alt, the menu refuses to disappear again. The only way to hide it is to press Ctrl+Shift+Alt+S (which seems like it'd conflict with other system-wide shortcuts on Windows), then go into the extension settings and hide it again.

ViewSourcey

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Doesn't work for the links at

Try any URL ending with .asm. I just get the "Save File/Cancel" prompt, with no "view in browser" option.

Favicon Picker 3

Yes! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Love it. Having a bookmark toolbar full of nothing but icons saves so much space, and with this I can replace missing/lame-o icons (I'm looking at you, VBulliten) with ones that actually mean something.

SpellCheck

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Pretty good, although the language specification requirement is annoying. It does some strange things if you try to copy text from the box though, and recognizes things like "

Stylish

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Practically essential for anyone using a dark Xfce theme, to be able to fix sites who hardcode a white background for their textboxes but don't bother to change the text that your theme renders in white by default.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.8). 

Glaze Black

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great theme, but has a few quirks. Menu items keep going invisible, and the nice gradient background appears briefly and then disappears if you open a blank tab. I want to give 4 and a half, but the system isn't capable of that.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.1). 

ArchView

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Good idea, but doesn't always list all files in an archive (will submit bug report separately), and lacks a button to download the archive itself.

RefControl

Very useful for forums Rated 5 out of 5 stars

On the contrary, this extension is great for anyone who browses forums and gets sick of seeing "lol hotlinking r teh eval" images in peoples' posts. Just forge the referrer and it's no longer a problem. :-)
