Still not working Feb 2013 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Running FFox 18.0.2, says errmsg "Sorry, you need a Mozilla-based browser to install.." LOL!

Turn Off the Lights

Something unexpected....involves Flash and recent Javablock p182 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I rated this of high importance because, although it seems to be a Java problem, I had closed all windows except for an online virus scanner (ESET) and left the 'puter running when I stopped operations for the day at about 3:15 AM CST yesterday 1/13. When I started FFox today (latest ver 18.0 from the release channel), I was confronted with an opening screen that had brought up the "Turn off the lights" add-on intro screen. (I had removed it and reinstalled but not run TOTL after installing it for the 2nd time, intending to read up on it a bit more before putting it thru all its paces, so I got a first-run screen). I have "Tools-->options-->Advanced-->auto-install updates---> warn me if this will disable any add-ons" checked, and found the opening TOTL screen up and not working, a greyed-out Flash app screen, and FFox-generated block warning https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/blocked/p182 saying "Java Plugin 7 update 10 and lower (click-to-play), Windows has been blocked for your protection." - apparently as a result of this add-on's call, or maybe just automatically by our FFox gurus. (note- I had just upgraded to the latest Flash version 11.5.502.146 earlier that day, and checked it on the Flash test page, nothing unusual). What this may have to do with this nice add-on I have no idea, but felt others shd. know. (also reported to developer thru his preferred process) And it's in no way a knock on the fine TOTL add-on, because the Ffox block mentioned only Java Plugin 7, the 2 events are probably just coincidental in time. But Stefan the developer surely would want to know this, I felt. Especially in view of the newest Jan. 14 detected malware fake Flash upgrade- I got mine from Adobe.com, verified the site offering the dl B4 even THINKING of messing with yet another Flash upgrade... because even legit Flash is turning into an update-every-week horror, highly useful in making unsophisticated users vulnerable to sophisticated social engineering/Trojan injections. And since it was a Flash-fake-upgrade war-grade supervirus that destroyed my dream Win7 Premium 3GHz. 1-TB HD, desktop system recently (down to the partition level, & which had loaded so many Trojans it took a full DoD-level reformat-OS reinstall job), I have a genuine terror of getting Flash/Java-virused again, and will be constantly (but not simultaneously) running only anti- virus/spyware/trojan/rootkit wares for the foreseeable future.. Becky, pls. excuse my ignorance, but what does the word "legal" have in the way of special connotations or subtexts around here...? Thanks, all!

Turn Off the Lights

Sombra es preciosa/Shadow is Golden Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Muchas gracias, Sr., no sabia tan util y gustoso un servicio como esto podria ser, hasta que Vd. me lo ofrecio'. Thank you sir, I didn't realize how useful and pleasant such an add-on could be until you offered it. Un gran idea for all heavy/activo multitasking YouTube y Facebook users & many-window surfers!

BENEFITS: Very much improves the video viewing clarity for we who want a more optimal vid-viewing experience w/ other windows open WITHOUT the necessity of constantly optimizing the video browser's & server's settings, in say, full-screen. Many clicks & much time saved! HIGHLY Recommended for such users, esp. those with enviable-class monitors!

PLEASE keep it updated as much as you can for new OS's and those atrocious,pointless new SueTube layout/server changes. My original, self-made vids there brought them over 8 million hits, and now my new views are falling off to 5% of what they were before the incredibly stupid changes... my new vids go to Vimeo now. YT is dying, so don't worry too much about them. They aren't making any money, no matter what their market cap allegedly is- just annoying their users and contributors more and more as they flail about desperately.

Also, your add-on is another clear example of how the Mozilla/Open-Source-values browser model, driven by user preferences and their own skills, puts IE... well.... in the shadows. :-)

Resurrect Pages

GREAT TOOL! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I know a lawyer who SHUT DOWN and GOT MONEY BACK for the victims of a Net-advertised scam...by retrieving and using as Court Evidence the SCAMMER'S fraud-evidencing splashpage that fraudster THOUGHT he had deleted forever from his website....hehe! You did good, Mr. Lieuallen. Expect a BIG Karmic Plus to your Life-Account! Somewhen.

Lazarus: Form Recovery

LAZARUS NEVER DIES! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

There is just NO WAY I am going to EVER AGAIN use FFox WITHOUT Lazarus. It has saved my unbelievably loquacious and maddeningly prolix butt {1000^23 power} times for MANY YEARS- and more every day. HOURS of retyping posts/emails can be saved- and have been! USE IT OR BE A REALLY CRUMMY WHAT-DID-I-JUST SAY (HUH?) MK. 1 HUMAN NEURO-FAWLTY DATABUFFER! GO LAZARUS DEVELOPERS! TEN TYPE O SuperStars! No! YET MORE!

Bitdefender QuickScan

MALWARE! 64-BIT INCOMPAT. COVERED UP! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

URLs included so you can see for yourself.... I'm just the messenger. Hope I'm wrong, too. But..... you Moz/FF experts judge this one. I only started coding in 1968.

My own thought? "If you have a 64-bit FF browser? Then it scans nothing!"

And you were maybe wondering why the reviews went from "GREAT WORK!" to "GET THIS TRASH OFFA ME! NOW!!"

How many agree that this is an INTENTIONAL coverup of a SERIOUS incompatibility issue in this ALLEGED FF plugin by BDFender? Show of hands? It's 100% where I work.

BITDEFENDER CRED FROM NOW ON? What cred? 0=0. (FF Forever!) All they had to do was tell us in the FAQ.....
