This kind of thing is sooooo useful it's almost necessary. But the core FF team just yanked it because ... why? I read the discussion on the so-called "bug" that lead to this plugin. And I'm only a "power user" if you stretch that to include people who use keyboard shortcuts. Thanks for writing this, I just wish it was simply 'esc' without having to add another background process to alter the shortcut.
Doesn't work on sites I visit such as cracked.com and IMDB. Hope you can iron out the bugs.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (188.8.131.52-signed).
Beyond useful, beyond awesome, this is easily my favorite addon for Firefox ever. Its only shortcomings are in the interface: The download popup menu is actually a minuscule arrow _next_ to the DownloadHelper icon, which is rather counter-intuitive and sometimes tricky to click. Also, when various versions of a file are available VDH gives no indications of their sizes, quality, or if you've already downloaded the file or not. That said, it handles a huge variety of file formats from a wide variety of sites, and includes a built-in customized Google search. If you want to be able to archive your favorite videos and Flash games locally, you currently can't do any better.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.8).
If you look at the developer contents you'll see the core of this spellchecker's shortcomings: "I would remember to everybody that this extension provides only an United States English spellchecker". It's clear from this sentence that the author is not a native speaker of English, and this is a dictionary for spellchecking, not definitions. Its list of words could also be considerably expanded -- to include words like "spellchecker" for instance. That said it's still the only game in town for users of U.S. English who do a lot of writing in a browser window, and correcting and adding words is a simple matter of right-clicking and picking the correct option.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.0.1).
