My Reviews

YouTube High Definition

Very good! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks for this!

The most important feature for me is the auto pause, but it works only in flash, not in HTML5. So, there is still the need of an additional add-on to force YT play videos in the flash player. It would be nice, if this add-on could do that too, so I wouldn't need another add-on.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (47.0). 

Zoom Page

Thanks for this! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

How to make Zoom Page forget the zoom values of all sites, at once, and reset all of them to the default value, with one click?

Video DownloadHelper

No, thank you! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

In the past, I liked this add-on very much. When it was redesigned, I stopped using it. Now, many months later, I thought I'd give it another try. I wanted to download some movies from Solar Movies. It didn't recognized >>> ANY <<< videos! But FlashGot recognized and downloaded most of them.

Flashblock

Very good, but... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

1) Could you please make the video thumbnail be shown, instead of a black screen?

2) A shortcut to play the video would be nice, instead of having to click on it.

Thanks!

FindBar Tweak

Context Search X

Much better than the original! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you, it's great!

Wikiwand: Wikipedia Modernized

OK Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I'll give it 4 stars, because it really makes Wikipedia more enjoyable, but unfortunately it does make it load much slower as well, sometimes the page doesn't even load at all (takes to long). So, I disabled it.

Tab Mix Plus

Thank you! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have used it for many years.

YesScript

The best! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's the best of it's kind, because it blocks only the sites I want blocked, and not all sites.

Thank you!

Video DownloadHelper

History Submenus II

FlashGot Mass Downloader

It's the best one! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It detects more than other add-ons (while others often fail) and it detects audio files too. Thank you!

Thumbnail Zoom Plus

Nice, but... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

How to view an image in its REAL size?

Right now, an image that is say 4000 x 5000 px (larger than my screen) is always shown zoomed out, filling my screen, but like 30% of the real size of the image.

I'd like to press a key and see the image in its real size, cropped.



Edit: Thank you for your reply! Yes, it works, but it opens a new tab, as you said, and then one must click again to zoom. Do you know this Greasemonkey script? https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/404-mouseover-popup-image-viewer It shows the full-size image without opening a new tab.

Thank you for your nice add-on!

Tons of fake 5-stars reviews lately! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Flashblock

Excellent! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I use it mainly because of Youtube. I hate that when I click on a video link the video starts to play automatically. On Youtube, there is no option to disable autoplay. This add-on does that. Video page opens with the video paused. So far, I haven't had any problems with it.

Thank you!

PS: Perfect would it be if it would show the video's thumbnail, instead of a black screen.

Menu Wizard

Excellent! I added a shortcut for the new Reader View. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I gave the new Firefox's "Reader View" function a shortcut, and now it's even more enjoyable.

I use cmd-Y.

Thanks for this add-on!
