My Reviews

New Tab Tools

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Exactly what I wanted. Not overly flashy or bubbly, no spam or ads, customizable rows and columns and margins, and I can modify the titles and thumbnails. It's just perfect and I appreciate the author's work very much.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (26). 

New Tab Plus

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

An okay extension but way too cartoony with an annoying tutorial, and putting ads on my new tab page is completely unacceptable.

Google Music Hotkeys

Needs 2 hands but works! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

They're not the hotkeys I would have picked but the addon works perfectly. I'd have preferred to set my own hotkeys - I would have picked something like CTRL-ALT-W which I could input with one hand.

Google Music Media Key Fix

doesn't work with my keyboard Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The media keys on my Microsoft Natural keyboard don't work with this addon but they work fine with local software like WMP and Foobar.

FoxToPhone

easy to use and works perfectly Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I switched to Chrome for about 10 minutes when I learned of the "Chrome to Phone" extension, but happily switched right back to Firefox when I found that this extension is just as good. Everything works great for me (US English verison of Firefox 5) and the button is attractive and low profile when I drag it to my tabs bar.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.2). 

LastPass Password Manager

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

"LastPass is the last password you'll ever need"... unless LastPass asks you to change your password because THEY GOT HACKED!!

Think twice before using a service like this - if you're going to put all your eggs in one basket, at least make sure you're holding the basket!!

about:me

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great little addon! My only wish is that I could assign about:me to appear every time I open a new tab!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5). 

Unread Gmail Favicon

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This addon fulfilled my biggest wish when I learned how awesome Firefox 4's app tabs could be. I wish you'd make a Twitter.com favicon addon too!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3). 

FireFTP

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm DYING for a Firefox 4.0 version! This is one of the best FTP clients I've ever used. In times like these I almost wish it was a standalone app so that a new release of Firefox doesn't leave me without this extension for a while!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.9).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

FireFTP

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I can't wait until this is ported to Firefox 4.0. FireFTP is the reason why I simply cannot switch to Google Chrome or any other browser. Best extension I've ever used, except perhaps for AdBlock. I can't live without FireFTP!
