My Reviews

Greasemonkey

Very mixed Rated 2 out of 5 stars

In theory this addon will improve your web browsing habits and life in general by 76% but in practise, things are quite different. Depending on which scripts you use, your internet can be absolutely crippled to a snails pace. 'Not responding' and other delays will become the norm.

This opens up another question on whether the scripts or addon are to blame but in order to find the culprit, be prepared to spend many hours working out which is at fault and many more editing scripts to exclude/include domains in order to ease the load.

I've also noticed huge memory leaks when GM is enabled. Within minutes, FF is using well over 1gb of RAM which isn't good.

Speed Dial

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great addon. One of the few that is keeping me from switching to Chrome.

However, I've been having a problem with blank thumbnails lately. I've reset settings and created the dials again but the problem persists.

Have emailed the developer but no reply as yet.

Any suggestions please?

Lightshot (screenshot tool)

One problem with it.. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is a very handy add-on but I'm experiencing a little problem with it when activating via the right click context menu. More often than not the context menu stays on the screen and interferes with the screenshot. Works flawlessly from the toolbar but I don't want to keep the icon in the toolbar.

Any suggestions for a workaround please?

Forecastfox Weather

It's good Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very good. Detailed and accurate weather information but the Chrome version is better imho.

LastPass Password Manager

Superb! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

One of the best addons available imo. The Chrome version was a bit buggy but I haven't had a single problem with the FF version.

Greasemonkey

Excellent..but Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Super addon and perfect for customizing the internet and enabling new features.

It does slow browsing down on some sites. There's a few blogspot sites which take about 20 seconds longer to fully load when GM is enabled. I've added a few blogger, blogspot wildcards to the global excludes but the only thing which speeds up those sites is disabling the addon completely, then restarting FF. If anyone knows of any other workarounds, that would be great.
