Needs Improvement......... Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The add-on looks promising and no-doubt integrates in browser so well.
But, I am sorry to say that I was disappointed when I used it.
I tested it a few times and most of time, it wasn't upto expectation.
Here are findings:
1. [IMG]http://i61.tinypic.com/2yl5kyd.png[/IMG]
Here, you can see, that add-on is suggesting the product which is costlier, than on the one I am seeing. Whereas, the same is actually present on flipkart, having much lower price (see next image).

2. [IMG]http://i58.tinypic.com/huj602.png[/IMG] The same product on flipkart at much lower price. It should be there.

3. [IMG]http://i58.tinypic.com/12516c5.png[/IMG] Same as in point 1.

Since, this add-on comes from a group of IITians, I don't think it would be of much hassle for them to rectify things.
I want this add-on to work in a much much better way.
Suggestion: You can also add discount coupons. So that, people may use them.......

Omnibar

Good one, but hamper default search engine..... Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Its a good one since, it saves space on your bar. By using it, you can increase address bar, which is convenient, for viewing web addresses.

But, this addon changes the default search engine behavior. My default was 'Google ! Felling lucky ', but now, I can't use it. Every time, I search, it searches from, the installed search engines.
This behavior is changed, if I uncheck 'Enable search without keyword or operator', but then, it does not use any search engine at all.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.19.20130418). 

Nimbuzz Webclient 3.2.4

Doesn't do anything !!!!!! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It do not do anything. Click on icon, it will show 'Open Webclient', click on that and nothing will happen, even if you wait for about 1 minute.

Public Fox

Nice Idea. But ain't foolproof. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Its nice to have such a thing. But its not foolproof.

Add Ons: It do lock add ons, but still you can access them by pressing cancel and Esc immediately.
2ndly, it doesn't lock addons at all, in side bar, in case you are using AIOS addon.

Lazarus: Form Recovery

Nice one. A lifesaver. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This add-on is a real lifesaver. A lot of times, we fill forms and for some reason, we just can't submit it, maybe net problem or server error or electricity. In those cases, it will always give you an option to recover the forms along-with this it remembers the choice on bullet and check forms as well.

One complaint, on rare occasions, it shows error like "Form can't be restored" :-(. Happens rarely, but whenever happen, it pinches.

DownThemAll!

Two Suggestions Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Hello Nils and Federico. Thanks for creating this wonderful add-on. It is a very nice add-on and has the power to replace external download managers.
Though, i have two suggestions for this:

1. In the morning, I was downloading a movie of about 90 MB, downloaded, 80 MB. Resume at evening and dta return an error server connection not found. I believe that OK, because maybe the link was expired and dta can't do anything about this. But, what bad happened was that it deleted even that downloaded 80 MB. Please fix this. It should be like when, dta didn't find the sever or link, it should state that and should give the option to refresh link address, and in the least should not delete partial downloaded file.

2. There should be some mechanism between dta and Firefox built in downloader, by which downloads can be imported and exported between these two.

Regards,
Abhishek K. Pandey

Speed Dial [FVD] - New Tab Page, Sync...

Great Addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A really nice addon. It has all those features which i and may be many others out there may be looking at. Its obviously better than newly introduced native tab page of Firefox and also than a few others out there.
It has nice bordered tabs which can grab a snap of the page automatically, can change them on the order and yes, snaps taken are better than other addons did, I had used. You can have a tab combo of any arithmetic you like.
Also, you can have different tab categories for different taste of bookmarks.
It lets you customize the background, it tiles or stretches or do whatever just as in case of a desktop wallpaper.
Although, in my case, it do mess up a few snaps, it actually took them at all. but, I will still give that :-)

Super Start

Missing Thumbnails Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Nice add-on. Looks good and that side facility is good too.
However, in my case, I don't see thumbnails of sites on speed dials.
Just hope, author will come and sort it out.

It needs a paid registration to get all features??????///

Abduction! - Webpage Screenshots Screen Capture

Good, but....... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

OK, it seems a nice add-on. But, can't we do the same thing without this add-on, by printing the page with print screen utility and then cropping the reqd. area in paint or another similar program??

Giving 4 just to maintain the ratings, really don't want to spoil the efforts :-)

YouTube mp3

Reason why its not working?? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I am giving this addon a 3 star, when actually, I should give it a 5 star. Despite the fact, that it doesn't work for me either.

The reason is that, its not addon but the site from which it converts, which is not working.
Now, why that's not working?? Because, Google has just filed a case on youtube to mp3 converter sites. So such sites have stopped working now.
I myself have checked the news and thereafter about 15 such sites, to get the same result.

So, just hope things go normal again.
