My Reviews

Parent Folder

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Sorry I expected this ADD-ON to be about bookmarks.
Does anyone really WORK with Firefox bookmarks and use more than 10.000 bookmarks ?
How do you find the folder of a result URL after searching ?
How do you jump to the folder of a result URL after searching ?
Now that Go Parent Folder and Show Parent Folder (alice0775) are omitted, for power users Firefox is almost as useless as Chrome.
Concerning the clumsy, cumbersome and ancient bookmark user interface, why should anyone use Firefox instead of Chrome ?
Sorry for being off topic, should not explain colors to the blind.

Google™ Translator (webextension)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Google™ Translator

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Firefox Quantum version (>=57) is available here: https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/google-translator-webextension/.
Auto-update did not work in my case, so search for: Google™ Translator (webextension).
These are 5 stars for the now obsolete addon-sdk API version that does not work anymore with FF57.
It is said that the new webextension version, which was published 7 (seven) months ago is even more stable.
Thank you Andy Portmen

Mozilla Labs: Prospector - Recall Monkey

Dead add-on Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Completely buggy, no multiprocess e10s tag, prompting "Fail to write content/metadata. Would you like to disable recoll now?"
Who pays you for omitting necessary updates ?
Everyone knows that this functionality is urgendly required, especially for Firefox bookmarks.
This makes the surfing experience with firefox worse.
Go on like this and keep moving your users to Chrome.

ViewMarks

Add viemarks on Firefox x64 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

If you create or rename a viewmark folder, consider that the first (how many?) characters should be different from other folders.
Otherwise the new or old folder "vanishes" but viewmarks keep falling into it and vanish as well.
This is a bad trap in FF64, FF32 was not tested.
Rename the first characters of the visible folder and the other one will reappear, anyhow in my case it did.
Good luck!

Some errors occurred with Firefox 32bit mixed with 64bit. Check if you got two windows versions in the \Program Files (x86) folder and the \Program Files folder. Firefox itself does not show you if it is a 32 or 64 bit version.
It is also possible that Add-Ons keep using 32bit folders after you switched to 64bit Firefox. Best is to save your bookmarks and tabs, uninstall Firefox with Revo or similar, delete the Program File folders, clean the registry and reinstall only one Firefox version and all plugins and all Add-Ons (from scratch).
I think Mozilla is responsible for these errors and Michael Koch is not.

Errors with Firefox 32bit mixed with 64bit Rated 5 out of 5 stars

All described errors occurred with Firefox 32bit mixed with 64bit. Check if you got two windows versions in the \Program Files (x86) folder and the \Program Files folder. Firefox itself does not show you if it is a 32 or 64 bit version.

Google™ Translator

Komfortable Textübersetzung Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Eigentlich das beste Translator-Add-On, leider muss neuerdings diese Erweiterung deaktiviert und wieder aktiviert werden, wenn die Ausführung von Googles Javascripten erlaubt wurde: Google schiesst den Google TM Translator ab.
Erstklassig ist die Dictionary-Funktion.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.7). 

Scrapbook Lite

That is what I am looking for but... Rated 1 out of 5 stars

"Save pages like scrapbook,and manage them with default bookmarks manager." is what I am looking for.
But this AddOn seems to be outdated and not working.
Good Idea, but no updates for 3 years ?
Still experimental ?

WikipediaWordCheckerInternational

Great wiki tool Rated 5 out of 5 stars

But most times CTRL-SHIFT-9 opens the page again that was opened before in spite of there was a different keyword marked.
CTRL-9 works well.
Switching languages is a bit cumbersome.
I still miss the navigation features of the old faulty dictionary tooltip addon.
Thanks

Sidebar Bookmarks Search Plus

keep a clear overview Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Perfect to keep a clear overview of huge Libraries, deserves 5 stars. Reviews like "Not in FF4" should be deleted when a new version solves the problem.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.9.1-signed.1-signed).
