My Reviews

Override User Agent

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

A stupid concept. The user agent should be switched to something that would ease access to some site and not to scream: I'm the one who runs a small screen device with a resolution of 2000x900 pixels

If and only IF the site does not do any other check. Also, there are about three addons with the exact same set of features, including working with the latest Firefox and without the need to restart. So I should add Pointless to the description.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.2). 

User Agent RG

Cute. And nice not to have to restart browser. For me useless as I can only chose from a given list. And the given list is not even easy accessible as I have to enable the menubar just for it.

Video DownloadHelper

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

One happy free extension ready to push junk for the simple task of conversion. I uninstalled it.

Easy YouTube Video Downloader

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Junk. Once you ask for M4P, which is put in a crafty way as the first option, you find out that you must upgrade to the spam version. No thanks.

Later edit: and it does a lot of calls back to the home site. I had to give it access to phone home with NoScript and than allow calls with Request Policy. These are worse than Google. Avoid this app.

Now that's impressive. Took a few styles from the site and they all work smooth. Way to go!

NoScript Security Suite

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It can help a lot with blocking unwanted parts of an webpage and also slim down firefox in its hunger for resources. A must have.

Very useful

Torbutton

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Got it through the tor site as the browser bundle and in this combination it just works. No issues whatsoever.

Pocket

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Cute, but a bad idea.

I have used it over time quite a lot. Than I tried Google Chrome and the solution to access their database via bookmarklets was slow and hard to use. I have tried to move the links some place else and surprise! I was locked out. Unless you plan to move by hand all the links one by one (I had a few thousands!) using this extension would be a pain.

The risk or getting your links stuck with some commercial service that asks money to let you in or that just gives in and disappears from online is just too high, even if their plugin would be more useful and less buggy.
