My Reviews

KeeFox

Must have for KeePass/Firefox users Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Makes using KeePass with Firefox very comfortable without sacrificing security.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.7.1-signed).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

KeeFox

handy and secure Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Keefox acts like a bridge between KeePass and Firefox. It lets you use the passwords saved in your KeePass database as if you were using the built-in Firefox password manager. It handles multiple logins for a single site well is unobtrusive and intuitive. I recommend it to all security conscious people along with KeePass.

Youtube MP3 Podcaster

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a great add-on. Direct mp3 download is so much better than downloading through any 3rd party video conversion site. The interface though could be designed to better fit youtube's site layout. Actually, I've hidden all the element except the download links with Adblock. Now it's really compact. The icons are just a bit on the ugly side and too big for that spot. The mp3 bitrate slider is also too big and unnecessary in my opinion. If it should be visible at all, it should be placed side by side with the download links.

5 stars, as the direct mp3 download is so awesome and the flaws can be fixed with Adblock ;)

Menu Editor

A must have Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a great add-on. There are so many useless items in the context menu that only clutter it - and with this add-on, they're gone. Personally, I also move Add-ons, Options and Downloads into the main context menu. There are just two things I miss in this extension: resizable options window and a possibility to COPY menu items (so that, e.g. Add-ons, show up both on the context and in the Tools menu).

Secure Login

Great addon - should be bundled with Firefox! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Undoubtedly one of the best add-ons. Simple, very useful. I love such simplicity. I think this add-on should be bundled with Firefox, if not built-in, to increase the safety and ease of use of the browser.

I personally like the hidden autologin option. I was looking for an extension that would make logins require as few actions as possible. Secure Login's autologin reduced that to no action at all on sites I have only one username/password and a double click on a username on those I have multiple.

The only flaw I see is that the box that pops up on multiple login sites is only 4 usernames high and is not resizable. I have 6 gmail logins ;) That forces me to scroll inside it to get to all the usernames. It would be nice if the box adjusted its height based on the number of logins.
