My Reviews

Old Add Bookmark Behavior

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I was tired of losing bookmarks. Now and then I would add a page to the bookmark bar (normally to read it later, often by dragging by mistake) that I had previously saved and classified. Firefox had silently removed the original bookmark so, as soon as I remove the last addition, the page is gone. Once more, data loss as a feature.

This add-on overcomes this "feature" while gracefully allowing me to opt-in in a per bookmark basis.

The only drawback is unintelligible text of the duplicate bookmark dialog ("Do you bookmark of duplication url?") but I can't figure out how to contact the author (the add-on site is in Japanese).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0). 

Feed Sidebar

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Its approach to feed reading is great because it just adds to browser's livemarks support the few features it lacks.

Unluckily, it uses too much memory and its makes Firefox really slow, even when your unread list is empty and it's not loading feeds.

Favicon Picker 3

Issues with W3C Validator icons Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I'm not 100% sure I should blame Favicon Picker 3 but I often get a wrong tab favicon when I validate HTML with the HTML validator. For instance, I see a big red box even if the code is valid. The W3C validator embeds favicons in the page HTML ( ) and the icon *is* correct. Weird...

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.0.5). 

XP on Vista

Fixing default Vista theme Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This theme features the lovely good-old colourful icons but, over all, a bookmark tree that is usable again: proper icons and proper indentation.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1). 

FxIF

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The extension is simple and elegant and it displays the information where it belongs (the properties dialog). However, it only shows a few basic exif fields. If you want to seem them all, you need another tool.
