My Reviews

Roomy Bookmarks Toolbar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Only rating this so I can say
PLEASE make a version that works on the new Firefox.
I really miss roomy bookmarks :)

Read Aloud: A Text to Speech Voice Reader

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank goodness - works easily, and easy to choose a voice I can listen to.

I'd been trying to use another add-on (multilanguagetexttospeechtts) which uses the voice on your computer in theory, but it's so hard to add voices to Windows (7 Pro X64) it made it not worthwhile.

I like Amazon British English (Amy) best.

Native text to speech ( tts )

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This add-on may work perfectly and it got me interested in the native tts pack in Windows, but in Windows 7 Pro X64, it's practically impossible to get any voice other than Anna.
Making this add-on's usefulness relative to Microsoft's.

Default Bookmark Folder

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Defaults to save to my choice (Bookmarks Menu) not "Other Bookmarks" -
THANK YOU!

At some point, I'll try to find out what Other Bookmarks is and why every time I try to clean it up it seems to make a mess again as if it's synchronising it with some folder I had since 2013.

Shortkeys (Custom Keyboard Shortcuts) for Firefox

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm actually looking for an extension to disable ctrl+w, which Shortkeys doesn't do, but
Mike was very prompt, clear and helpful to respond to me, so full marks for service, and
Shortkeys dev team (probably Mike) has a new fan when I need its functionality.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.20). 

adaware ad block

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I tried telly Adaware directly via their feedback page (https://www.adaware.com/give-feedback), but when I hit submit, it says "404 Not Found - nginx".
So, here for all to see is my feedback - you asked for it!

With no warning or explanation, my New Tab was now a picture of a lake and set to use bing.
WTF! Someone has messed with my stuff! Was it bing?
I figured out it AdAware and found nothing in its settings.
I finally found out AdAware is actually 3 extensions, and I disabled safe search, as it doesn't seem to have settings to tweak how it messes with your expected functionality.

Note to the programmers. If someone is nice enough to let you into their house, don't start moving things, changing things, especially with little to no indication of what, why and by whom!
So rude!
I know you think it's obvious functionality, but my FireFox didn't used to work like this.
Either ask first or explain, don't just revamp my kitchen and think I'll be down with that as beneficial as you think it might be.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.0.6). 

Fast Scroll to Top

doesn't work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The button to add to Firefox was yellow checkered but seemed to install. No sign of how to make it work, and no indication on the install page.

Text to Voice

Easy, sounds good, can save audio Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great job!
Works great and easy to use.
Would be better to keep consistent - call it the same in the app as in the Add-ons Manager in Firefox - I couldn't see which TTS app I was trying to identify when I wanted to say well done!

Look at FoxVox for more settings to add, but I don't need and seemed a bit complex so happy with this one.

CLiCk, Speak.js

Robotic voice hard to understand Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Awful robotic voice.
Try Text to Voice by ViJo - easy, sounds good, can save audio file.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.6.24.1-signed.1-signed). 

Open sync tabs button

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Spot on - really easy to see tabs in each device - very nicely done - thanks!

Show File Size2

Shows in Open dialog not download window Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Your screen shots do show that the file size of the download is shown in the Open dialog, but you specifically state that it shows in the download window, which it doesn't. If you can fix that, that is what I want - the Open dialog disappears, and I go back and look at the download dialog.

Clip to OneNote

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works beautifully - well done. Thanks.
