My Reviews

Toolbar Autohide

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is very useful for zombie mode. Why not override Firefox settings for full screen and allow the autohide of the Menu bar, Addon bar, and Windows Taskbar? That would make an awesome replacement for the Autohide extension that the other developer apparently gave up on.

Update: Yvard is absolutely right, this addon works wonderfully with Autohide by restoring the floating toolbars in full screen that were broken in Firefox 18. It additionally adds zombie mode while maximized without having to change any settings in Autohide so we get the best of both worlds at the same time. I just had to make sure "browser.fullscreen.autohide" in about:config was set to true. Well done.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.1.1). 

Download Flash and Video

Nice job. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This one actually works in the latest nightlies, the only one I could find so far. I also like the way it lets you know how much you're downloading based on the various file formats.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.24). 

Video DownloadHelper

Broke again Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's broken again in the latest Aurora and nightlies, even after 4.9.12. In fact no video downloaders work right that I can find.

Don't know what the firefox developers are doing except discouraging use of the newer versions.

Edit: after creating a temporary new profile your latest version does appear to work with the new download manager in UX nightly. But with "browser.download.useToolkitUI" set to true it doesn't, the box just pops up briefly then closes. Hope that helps.

Good Old YouTube Downloader

Superb Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks for keeping this wonderful addon going.

One minor problem is that the .3GP files are actually 360p .FLV. I couldn't get them to work in Winamp using FFDShow codecs until the file extension was changed to .flv. The VLC player recognizes the error and fixes it on its own.

Video DownloadHelper

Broke in newer builds Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent addon, one of the best for Firefox. But in the latest Aurora and Nightly builds it's broke and won't download anything.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.9.10). 

Grabstream

Out again Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Has worked perfectly for the longest time but it's out again on youtube. Hope the developer hasn't abandoned this.

Copy Pure Text

Perfect Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This one is a keeper. I can't count the number of times I've been forced to open Notepad first to copy in text but no longer.

OpenBox

Perfect Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Nice addon. There are times when I prefer to use the standalone box over the location bar and this does it perfectly.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.6). 

Grabstream

It's broke Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Not working any longer on youtube. Any chance for a fix?

Grabstream

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Giving this addon 5 stars because it's great to have it back.

The only problem I can see is sometimes it takes quite a while for the download box to popup. Also, will it be possible to download WebM videos in the future?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0).

cuteytram one option if you have an account at mozillazine forums you can privately give me an email address and I'll send you an attachment with the addon included that has the hacked file in it. That way you can re-install the addon and it'll work again. If not sign up with your current username and let me know:http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewforum.php?f=49&sid=ed79f6612b2cabb12ab3a9c6107eaed0Or maybe someone can host the addon so others can easily download it??

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

cuteytram a simple way of doing it if you're in Windows XP is to open Search and copy in "YoutubeDownloader@PeterOlayev.com" without the quotes. Click on the folder in the search window and you'll see the chrome folder. Open that and copy in the hacked file. Make sure Firefox is closed first then restart it.

Vitor De Araujo thanks for your work. I was going to look at it too about getting .3GP to download again. But .mp4 and .flv are good enough for now.

Hopefully the author hasn't abandoned it. This is the best video downloader I've been able to find.

Will this addon be updated for Minefield? The Find Bar can no longer be moved to the top.
