My Reviews

PageTweak - Ad Blocker, Video Downloader, Translator...

Sticking To Indvidual Extensions Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Solid collection for an "all-in-one" add-on, but overkill for most. Lots of add-ons in a single download. Most are enabled by default, so check the settings to disable others you don't need. I feel this is more than a casual user would ever use, yet not configurable enough for the power users.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.5). 

Fire Media Player

I Miss FoxyTunes... Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This sounded like an acceptable replacement for FoxyTunes, my previous integrated media player not compatible w/ v. 14.0.1. Maybe it is, if you want Facebook and Google (YouTube) jamming along with you. I tried a few times to allow first Facebook and then YouTube access, without success, then thought, "How many times do I want to help FB access my info? Probably a blessing in disguise..."

Search continues.

Roomy Bookmarks Toolbar

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Well... it does what it promises.

However, my Bookmarks Bar has now doubled in height, including a few custom buttons I have on it. Maybe it would display correctly if I reset the toolbars & controls and reconfigured? Maybe - but that's more trouble than I'm interested in right now. I'll try again another day, I guess.

FYI, I'm using Win 7 Pro & 4.07b.

Smart Bookmarks Bar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I miss this add-on: nothing fancy, but it does what it says and doesn't cause problems. How about a little love for 4.0?

Xmarks Sync

X-Marks Lives :-D Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The best - end of discussion.

The news that X-Marks was shutting down in January was met first with disappointment, followed closely by bewilderment regarding what to do in its absence. It is remarkably reliable, widely compatible, and integrated to such a degree that one can very easily forget it's there altogether. Once it's configured on a browser, aside from the rare network issue or password / PIN change, one probably won't have to give it another thought. It becomes extremely easy to take for granted - which is why the news was so startling.

I use X-Marks across multiple computers, operating systems, on IE, on Chrome, and on multiple versions of Firefox, and seldom have the slightest issue. It just does its thing and gives me one less thing to worry about. I run plenty of extensions on FF, but there are only a few I truly could not do without anymore - X-Marks is one of them.

PasswordMaker

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is the most brilliant add-on I've found. Now not only do I not have to remember passwords, each site has its own, instead of one of the few I used to use for every site.

Greater ease of use + enhanced security = WIN!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.7.7).
