My Reviews

NoScript Security Suite

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Sure, there is a big learning curve to the new version. But don't blame the developer for that! Firefox Quantum requires WebExtensions, which required a rewrite of NoScript, and major changes to how it works.

Aside from the UI (user interface) being a bit confusing, it just works (it even remembers your old site preferences!). That's what you want it to do, right?

Before adding it, take a look at the description, and go to the link shown there. It explains the UI and how it works. Click the "S" once for temporarily trusted, twice for permanently trusted.

For security software, the most important thing is that it functions properly. From everything I have seen, the new version does exactly that. I'm not going to knock off a star (or 4, like some people?!?!?) for a change in the UI; I chalk that up to Quantum (and Firefox's mistake of auto-upgrading to a major new version without asking).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (10.1.5.7). 

Easy Screenshot

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Pretty awesome; I was looking at creating something similar, but saw it was already done. It can capture an entire webpage, including parts that are outside the visible window. It adds an icon; just click on that, and choose "Capture Whole Web Page." It creates an image, and then if you want to save it just click on the disk icon. The only problem I found was that often the "Capture" options are greyed out. That happened at addons.mozilla.org (which doesn't let any addons run), a local webpage from my computer, and an "about:" page. But it looks like normal webpages will save just fine.

Self-Destructing Cookies

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

In the past, every couple of weeks I would clear out all my cookies. I would more often, except it is a hassle; I have to re-login to my favorite sites.

I had hoped to find a program that would let me clear all cookies except ones from domains I had whitelisted. But this is even better, automatically deleting the cookies for me.

I just installed the program, but so far it seems to be exactly what I wanted (and then some!).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.1.1-signed).
