My Reviews

User-Agent Switcher

Question about functions Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Will this allow the browser to report it is another Version Number than what is installed ? Say I have 47.0.2 and a site says it need V52 .. Can this make the site think it is seeing V52 ? ?

Bookmarks Favicon Images

Works great Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This works good with Firefox 47.0.2 and now I can change Favicons for sites that do not provide a decent looking one. It did take a bit of figuring to get my selected .ico into where you extension can use it, but once it is there, it is easy to select it.

Favicon Picker 3

Is there a version for FF47 ? ? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Need to know which version or add on can do the same job of adding favicons when in Firefox 47 ? Not ready to update to FF52 just yet until I get my icons fixed. Which version of FF does your addon support ? (pre or post 47)
Thanks

Yahoo Mail Hide Ad Panel

Reasonably ok, small problem Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Does not block the Large White Area above the Yahoo email page at: mg.mail.yahoo.com .. sometimes it does, sometimes not. And just to clarify, this is a very large Banner Ad from "TurboTax" .. they did this last year around this time and it is back again this year. Sometimes, clearing all the Cookies will get rid of it. Sometimes not. And all my filters for AdBlock Plus are up to date. Firefox 47.0.2 .. Thank you

Zoom Page

Question about add on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This seems to be a reasonably good add on. But I have a question as to where the Zoom Level for a site is stored. Is it on each computer or stored somewhere else ? Now and then a site may revert back to a zoom I do not want. Thanks for the information.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (15.1). 

Tab Mix Plus

Adding an option Rated 5 out of 5 stars

While this works well, I would like to see an Option to Open Links From Within An Email or elsewhere in a Background Tab .. Right now they open directly next to the currently open one. .. Otherwise it works great.

Go Parent Folder

Suggestions for the future Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Is it possible to get the View shown by Show Parent Folder added to Go Parent Folder add-on ? ? We really should not need to install both to get the best functionality. Also, how about us being able to bring the Bookmark Search box out so it can be placed on a Toolbar ? ? If we can do this, then the Library need not be opened in order to search for a Bookmark

Thank you

Menu Filter

Wonderful extension Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This has got to be one of the best extensions I have ever found. It lets you hide menu items you never need, but they can be unhidden with ease. This feature should have been a part of the Firefox design from the beginning.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (16). 

Toggle Document Fonts

Needs a few minor tweaks Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Button takes up way too much space with all that lettering. Also there are no Options, such as White Listing a site to use it's own fonts or to use my specified fonts.

Yahoo Mail Hide Ad Panel

Not Blocking Intuit / Turbo Tax Banner Ad In Yahoo Email Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Does not seem to be blocking the very large Banner Ad at the top of Yahoo Email page which is from Intuit / Turbotax .. one of the most intrusive and annoying ads I have ever seen. This will not entice me to buy Turbo Tax or Intuit products.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.50). 

FEBE

Why not available for Firefox 42 ? ? ? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Using FEBE 8.8.1 working fine. But what happened as to why future releases won't work with Firefox 42 ? ? Not everyone is happy with the changes being forced on us by Mozilla in the newest and not so greatest releases of Firefox ... Thanks

The question was more of: Why the addon home page does not show 8.8.2 as working with Firefox 42 ? Does it or does it not ? And if not, will it be corrected so it does ?

Google Shortcuts - All Google Services at a glance

Reasonably good Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Not too bad an extension. Too bad the developer won't keep it "up to date" for Firefox ... The so called Chrome version, could not be installed in Firefox and I (and others) have no intention of switching to Chrome. The current extension needs a Google Search Box button and a way to Import existing Google Toolbar Custom Buttons which are in .xml format. Otherwise, this extension can do 99% of what my old, still working Google Toolbar For Firefox did. (not sure if it can do Page Translations, but that is a feature I have almost never needed)

Toolbar Buttons

Suggestions Rated 4 out of 5 stars

While this add-on is not too bad, it could use a few features:

1): I like to be able to just Download and save the add-on, then install later. Firefox does not like to do this and the only way to get the .xpi is to do a backup with FEBE

2): It would be nice if we could modify the Buttons that link to various URL sites. If we can not, then how about allowing us a way to create a Custom Button or to be able to Import Buttons (in .xml format) as used in Google Toolbar ? ?

Forecastfox (fix version)

Conflict with No Squint Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Just installed Firefox 42 on Windows 10 Home. It has your add-on along with Forecast Fox .. for some reason, the Zoom Magnifier is now part of the Forecast Fox toolbar and I can not seperate it. It was working fine in Firefox 39, not sure which Firefox broke it or if the issue is with No Squint or Forecast Fox or the lack of normal Classic Themes in Windows 10 .. Please see if this can be resolved.

Googlebar Lite

Adding custom buttons Rated 4 out of 5 stars

We need a way to add custom buttons or to import custom buttons in .xml format from the original Google Toolbar (from Google, now discontinued) .. Otherwise, while your add on is good and will work in FF43 (when signed add ons are mandatory) I will lose many custom created buttons that I need to use. Many other users would also like this feature. Please try to add it. Thank you.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.0.6.1-signed). 

Googlebar (Fixed)

Adding custom buttons Rated 4 out of 5 stars

How can I add custom buttons to this add-on ? ? My custom buttons are in .xml format. I have some that I used with the real Google Toolbar (since discontinued) that I would like to be able to use with your add-on. Also when will it get Signed by Mozilla so it can be used with FF43 and later ? ? ?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.20.05.01). 

Custom Buttons

Can it use existing .xml button files ? ? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Is it possible to import a button that was previously created as a .xml file (from Google Toolbar for example) ? ? I have a few like that and when add on signing is mandatory, I will likely lose Google Toolbar (but I do have all the buttons I use saved on my computer)

Thanks

Classic Theme Restorer

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Not bad, but the Option to get rid of Pocket does not work properly. It did set the flag in About:Config and I did the restart, but the Pocket Button is still on the Bookmarks drop down and I can not find a way to get rid of it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.2.1-signed). 

FEBE

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very good addon, but is it possible to save the backup in more than one location ? If it is, how do we type it into the Save In Location ? ? If not, perhaps this simple feature can be added.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (8.7.1-signed).
