VPN Unlimited - Private & Secure Web Proxy

Don't touch this. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Do not touch this with a barge pole. It is not a Firefox extension in any normal sense. It is, rather, a very limited and short free trial of a commercially available program. Furthermore the need to create an account and sign in to KeepSolid negates any privacy that might be gained. Zero Stars.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.3). 


Still works Rated 4 out of 5 stars

CacheToggle still does what it says on the tin and so far as I can discover is the only similar extension that remembers cache state (on/off) between Fx sessions. All others seem to revert to "cache on" at restart which is inconvenient.

To make CacheToggle work as intended just adopt one of many extensions that restore the Firefox Add-On Bar. At the moment, the best add-on bar replacement seems to be Puzzle Bars.
Only four stars because it relies on another extension to be visible.

Broken :-( Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This extension is broken by Firefox 29 (Fx "Australis" redesign).
Developer (or some other clever person) please revise accordingly.
Until it was broken this was the only viable extension of its kind that I knew about..

Incompatible with Fx 24?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2). 

Restart Firefox

Broken again :-( Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Sadly recent changes in Fx (v20 and above) have caused even the beta version to stop working. The extension still gets 5 stars from me because when it gets fixed (again) I'll be first in the queue re-install it. In the meantime I'll be using "Restartless Restart" by Erik Vold.

Photobucket Uploader (unofficial)

Can't change log-in setting Rated 1 out of 5 stars

@"pidgezero_one" and "scale":
the problem here seems to be that the extension stores photobucket log-in info in the fx profile file "prefs.js" which is a *permanent* record of user preferences for extension behaviour (and therefore completely the wrong place to store anything that a user has not specifically permanently preferred!). Only preferences that a user can change via an extension interface should be stored there.

Deleting "pref.js" is a fix with an obvious downside (deletes all "real" preferences). Editing "prefs.js" to remove all reference to "pb upload/upload pb/pb" has less consequence but might be a bit time consuming.

Note to developer
Where are you mattyk++ ?
You need to fix this absurdity.
Please remove the "not-feature" that stores a single login for ever and a day. It is not required and makes an otherwise excellent extension unusable for the thousands or more who legitimately run multiple PB image storage accounts.

Search by Image for Google

It's OK - but... Rated 3 out of 5 stars

...has a tendency to "discover" multiple re-posts of an image in tumblr.com and hardly ever finds the original image.
I really want to find the owner of an image (in order to seek permission to use) - not just a stream of instances where the owner is not acknowledged.
The site of whoever first put an image on the web must be out there in the Google database somewhere!


Rated 2 out of 5 stars

According to the add-on page for the StumbleUpon toolbar a mere 672,694 people. This makes SU's claim to have millions and millions of Stumblers a tad hollow.
This toolbar still does exactly what it was always designed to do (delivers web content according to preference) but what doesn't do any more is act as a gateway to a wealth of creativity and real social interaction that beat FB et al hands down. Download it and use it by all means but expect nothing more than a click "wow that's a cool (or crap) site" experience.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.97.1-signed). 

Screenshot Pimp - Screengrab, Screen Shots, & Save Selection

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This add-on is a good concept but perhaps suffers from trying to do too much. I, for example, don't need the video download part but cannot find a way to disable that feature or remove the video button from my menu bar. On the other hand I might find "Similar", "Stumble" and "Translate" useful but can find no way to create buttons or menus that would let me (individually or otherwise) use them. What I think would be very useful is a single menu-button (containing all the elements present in the extension's toolbar) that can be placed in the Firefox add-on bar (or - as is the new way of things - any other bar defined by the user!). I have not uninstalled this potentially excellent add-on but I have disabled it pending hoped-for updates that include a single button or a higher level of user customisation (or both). Good luck with the development. {Firefox 4.0b 12pre}
