I seem to be having a problem due to the endless loop prevention in this. My rule is to remove the "h" from eg: xxh.jpg leaving only xx.jpg, however the endless loop protection disables my rule when trying to open xxhh.jpg instead of turning it into xxh.jpg.
Here is one example which disables my rule http://i.imgur.com/d6Za1ihh.jpg
which I would like to become http://i.imgur.com/d6Za1ih.jpg
Also It seems there are always 7 characters before the "h" I would like removed, ie I only want the "h" removed if it is the eight character before ".jpg"
Any suggestions on how I might get around this would be appreciated, thanks.
Thanks, this worked well for what I wanted.
Which was to automatically edit and remove the "h" from URLs in a certain domain, for example changing yyyyh.jpg to yyyy.jpg
I haven't done anything else with this so I'd be surprised if I ran into any problems or bugs. Since you also added features like import/export I feel I have to give this 5 stars so far.
I used to use RefControl which in comparison is old unreliable.
This though works well and is sensibly done, it lets you specify both source and target URLs and works reliably, though a rather simple little addon referrer control is important to me and this one seems to have no flaws so far.
Didn't work, it simply changed the URL and displayed a blank page that did nothing.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.8).
Works, but may cause problems with sites when trying to download files from them such as moddb.com.
Try keep this in mind if you use this and add those sites to the whitelist.
I can't seem to give less than 1 star, 1 is to high for this.
There is a sidebar with this that constantly pops up, not just while viewing a CHM file, it pops up when browsing, or opening a new tab or clicking links, it's even popped up and vanished a few times while typing this. Selecting some of the text I'm typing makes it pop up or vanish each time.
The dev uses keyboard shortcuts that can't be changed, and happen to conflict with my global keyboard shortcuts so they don't work, great example of the poor practice in the workings of the addon.
Each time I click a link while viewing a CHM file it opens the save dialogue box asking if I want to save some strangely named file, where it says "You have chosen to open" it shows some HTML source of the CHM being viewed.
It's just horrible.
This is the poorest implementation of a worthwhile feature I can remember ever seeing.
Editing my review because this hasn't worked at all for some time anymore.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.0).
Did not work on any of the HTML5 videos I checked on Youtube, also disabled TubeStop 4 incase that was interfering without change.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.0).
Causes some Youtube videos to not play at all, removing it solved the problem and reinstalling made the problem come back. Here is the last video it caused problems with http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SoHeWgLvlXI&feature=youtu.be
Also on one of the PCs here it rendered all Youtube videos unplayable until uninstalled.
It's a nice addon when it works, but having to uninstall it to get some videos to play is more frustrating than it is useful.
It does what it says but the captured images can badly lack text quality for a simple reason.
On large high resolution displays it's common to increase the size of webpages being viewed but Abduction captures it at its original size.
This is a problem because when you increase the size of the page within the browser the text simply increases in size, though when you try to increase the captured image from Abduction the text is stretched and starts to look like dung.
Since no doubt alot (if not almost all) of captures from this addon are to capture at least some text on webpages, the addon is pretty much shooting itself in the foot.
Due to this if you want quality or easily readable text in the captures, print screen is better until Abduction stars capturing pages at the site they are set to in the browser.
It's great that this addon gives you the basic option of being able to resize the Firefox bookmarking dialogue. Though lets face it Firefox is lacking so severely in this regard and many others it's getting ridiculous how many addons are needed just to keep Firefox sensible lately.
While it's a welcome feature it would be nicer if it did more, perhaps replaced the archaic bookmarking dialogue with something better altogether with better features like, the dialogue not closing if it looses focus, allow the user to move it around, allow the user to copy text from the page they're bookmarking so they can paste it into the description of the bookmark they're creating, auto collapse all bookmark directories so it doesn't have to be done manually or else they will eventually all be expanded making it harder to find the location you want to store the new bookmark.
This is one of the features in Firefox where just about anything you throw at it would be an improvement.
It would make the addon more worthwhile adding such features other than just being able to resize something which should be there to being with.
It does what it says on the box, though as others mentioned it would be nice if it could pause the video at the start so it could still buffer/load, or better still having the option of choosing whether you want the videos to not auto-play or pause (and still buffer).
Since installing Session Manager Firefox hasn't forgotten a singe session after exiting/crashing. Before it would constantly forget, getting to the point where I was about to stop using Firefox so once again it's up to the addons to make it worthwhile.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.8.1).
SkipScreen no longer works with any of the sites tested, in fact it renders the sites useless as it prevents you from being able to download the files at all so it's become less than useless which is unfortunate.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6.1.2). This user has a previous review of this add-on.
Basically useless as it still seem to only block referrers TO certain sites and doesn't offer any way to block referrers FROM certain sites.
The reasons why it 'should' work like this are many, even the site for the addon lists such reasons, maybe just doesn't realise it, yet this still doesn't let you hide the referer in a useful way.
While it does let you block all referers which is a small saving grace it doesn't have a whitelist so again falls short.
The good is that it's simple and you don't need to be fiddled with have to fight it and when it works it works well, in that area it's a very pleasant surprise having used Autopager for years and fighting it more and more lately. Though PageZipper doesn't work with as many pages as one would like, even some well known ones give problems so don't expect it to work with "local" or lesser known sites unless you get lucky.
The bad, is that if you find it isn't working on a site you would like, it seems the only place to report it is on getsatisfaction.com which after my experience of trying for 20 minutes just to log in with my OpenID is the worst site I have ever tried to use and would sooner take a cheese grater to my tenders than goto getsatisfaction.com again.
PS, will report a site problem here since that other site is from hell
Lately it's become problematic and unreliable. Autopaging sites without asking usually erroneously while preventing you from view the bottom of a page.
It's handy on a handful of sites but the problems cropping up more and more and lack of user friendliness just doesn't add up. Working on the sites it's wanted where it's useful doesn't make up for the frustration and time it will consume just trying to browse on others.
Same problem as others have mentioned about not being able to find the "Show Check Compatibility Button" except I'm on Firefox 6.0.2. Then again nowhere does it even mention where to expect this button.
Though at least it does show the supported version number next to addons in about:addons.
Thanks for the reply from the dev, the button is no longer there to check if addons work with the new version of Firefox, so nothing is actually wrong with the addon. Though it would be great to have that feature back, hint hint.
I tested Internet Download Manager (IDM) and it installed this thing without asking, also it disabled the uninstall option in plugins making it a mission to get rid off.
Good luck if you're brave enough to install this thing.
Half useless as it seem to only block referrers TO certain sites and doesn't offer any way to block referrers FROM certain sites.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.13).
Great addon, it's one of the things that put Firefox above other browsers.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.09072009).
