Save My Tabs

Almost perfect, except one missing feature Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Really, its unobtrusive, simple to use and does what it says. Its almost perfect.

The one thing I ask the creators to incorporate is a feature to clear the text files periodically, like says every week or every month, with an option to retain the last x number of days.

The reason I ask is, I installed this extension in September of last year and set it to activate every 15 minutes. Because its so unobtrusive I kinda forgot about it and came to back to see that my Firefox Profile folder has 29K files! A feature to periodically clear the files would help prevent this by a huge margin.

Disconnect Search

Breaks Google. More trouble than its worth. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I liked the idea that it does not let Google or other search engines track your searches, and in that respect, it works just fine.

But in doing so, it breaks a lot of google functionalities. Google Bookmarks does not work. Google Play does not work. I needed to disable this add-on whenever I had to use either of those services.

However, since yesterday, I could no longer login to my Google account at all. That was the last straw for me. I am disabling this add-on till it works seamlessly with Google.

I hope they update it soon.

Disconnect

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It works very well and I am glad to have found it. However, ever since I updated to Firefox v34, I have noticed that the add-on randomly stop responding. It will suddenly stop showing the count of blocked requests and indeed stops blocking these. I need to disable the add-on, restart FF, enable the add-on and restart FF again in order to get it working again, which is not always fine cause sometimes I have important tabs open and it becomes inconvenient to do this. I hope they fix this.

Currently using FF v35, and it exhibits the same problem.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.14.0.1-signed.1-signed).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Like a Boleta

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Nice background, but the text color / shading is horrible! Making the text black with white shading would have made is much more readable.

Targeted Advertising Cookie Opt-Out (TACO)

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It works when it manages to start. Ever since I updated to Firefox v26, it is a 50:50 chance that this plugin is enabled. Sometimes it starts, and sometimes it gets disabled saying it is not compatible with this version of Firefox. Same problem has carried forward to Firefox v27 also.

Please fix this inconsistency.

Feedly - Beyond Google Reader

Easy, but does not remember by filter settings Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Its easy to use, and automatically imports my Google Reader feeds, exactly how I had organized them, which is a huge plus. I would have given it a 5 had it not been for the fact that it does not remember my filter settings. I want it to show me all the posts, not just the unread ones. But I have to change the filter preferences manually, not only every time I log in, but also for every individual feed. This is a big downer for me, in an otherwise awesome app. I hope the developers incorporate a permanent filter setting for this under Preferences.

Skip Addon Compatibility Check

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I installed this add-on, but what I am really interested is in something that lets me install outdated add-ons that are not compatible with my current firefox version - in particular the 'customizegoogle' (cg) add-on. I have found that the add-on keeps on working in newer versions even if it is deemed outdated for that version. Because of a crash, I had to make a fresh installation of Firefox and now I can no longer install the cg add-on. Please let me know if this add-on will help me in that :) Sry for the length of the post.

ReloadEvery

A couple of feature requests. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Does what it claims to do. Nothing more and nothing less.

I do have a couple of requests for future versions.

1. Allow the user to specify different reload time for each tab. Right now, the same time is applied to all enabled tabs.

2. Please add a feature to switch to the tab on reload. I know how this can bug some people, so of course, it's be an option that would need to be turned on for that specific tab.

Google by Image Restartless

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It has a slight problem with https. The link that is generated when I click on 'Google by Image' is http:// whereas I have configured google images to always load in https:// mode. Hence, google images refreshes mid-search and presents me with a fresh Google search page every time I use this add-on. Other than this, it is pretty much perfect, but this limits the usability very much. I am open to any solution because I like the simplicity of this add-on.
