My Reviews

Split Pannel

Nice idea but seriously flawed Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This is a nice idea but suffers two major flaws. The first is that after splitting a screen there is no way to get back to a single screen. The second is that there is no navigation bar on the split screen ensuring you cannot change it and as you cannot shut it the whole thing seems pointless. I am not sure how it could be developed with these two major flaws which for me make it unusable. Fix them two and I will happily use it but its no good as it is and it might be because it came out in April 2011 with no updates since.

Delicious Bookmarks

Was very good now complete crap Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Have used Delicious on Firefox for years but for the last few weeks it kills Firefox 7.01. Every time I try and log in it freezes Firefox and restarting Firefox or the computer does not fix it. What does is running Ccleaner. After running that and clearing out the caches Firefox works again. If this is what happens when someone buys a product then it would probably have been better to let it go under as there are alternatives that do work. I note it is still showing version 2.3.1 which is months old and several versions out of date so what ever tinkering took place by the new owners that screwed it up was not considered to be worth a new version number which is a shame as that version originally worked perfect and you cannot go back to it either. Very poor show AVOS as you have still not fixed it weeks after people started to report the problem.Reverting it back to how it was would be a good start as what you have done is just screw it up.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.3.1). 

Firefox Sync for Firefox 3.5/3.6

Biggest pile of poop ever ? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

To be honest this product does not even deserve one star. It is completely unfit for purpose and should never be presented in what is clearly an unfinished, bug ridden, totally unreliable format. I feel I could call trading standards and complain about this being misrepresentation in the name and unfit for purpose in its use. As its free I cannot but then you would never be able to sell this. Whoever designed it should hang their heads in shame. Without doubt the worst addon I have ever used for Firefox and thoroughly not recommended.

eBay for Firefox

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I used to use this on an earlier computer and it was great but not so now. I have tried it on two separate computers both running 32bit XP and it doesn't work on either. Installs fine, sidebar prompts to connect to Ebay, authorisation comes back successful but it never does connect.

useKit - stay focused

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Might or might not be good but it failed to work as an addon and also failed to integrate with the bookmarks toolbar via their site. I can only assume it is not compatible with Firefox 3.5.5 as it just doesn't work.

Google Enhancer - True Knowledge

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

It could be useful for many but because it takes a while to load after the search page is showing results it means that when you click a link on the search page it invariably does not work as the page is waiting for this addon to load so it actually slows you down. As the results that came through were of little use to me and it caused me delay in using the computer I have uninstalled it.

Gspace

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Problems getting it to work and then finding out that it is completely unsecure makes it a big NO NO. Great idea but leave well alone if you value your privacy. Try DropBox or similar.

AnyColor

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Cannot seem to get it to change to any colour that I pick, only the presets works. Better than nothing but could do with a help page.

AnyColor

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Sounds good but some of the changes made are not good so it doesn't do what it says it does. After ten minutes I uninstalled it as I actually preferred the original scheme.

Session Manager

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have tried this before and it works brilliantly. I have tried Tabs Mix Plus before on both Firefox 2 and 3 but it screws up so many things each time that I junk it and come back to this. This just works every time.

Clipmarks

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

For what it claims to do it fails miserably as it completely screwed up the copy and paste function, which I might add is considerably faster, to make itself work. Not recommended as it is very poorly thought out.

Submit 'em now

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It sounds great but appears to be impossible to use. No useful user info and what is provided misses so much out it is useless. Great opportunity to make something useful completely blown by a product that either doesn't work or they don't want you to use. Best avoided.

Torbutton

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Very poor addon. It is not completely secure which defeats the object and is very unstable in Firefox 3. Caused the browser to freeze every time on three separate attempts. Has an effect on Delicious bookmarks as well so I cannot see anything going for it as it obviously doesn't work very well, doesn't do what you want it for and it screws up your browser. AVOID.

TrashMail.com for Mozilla Firefox®

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Brilliant add on. If you go to any giveaway sites then this is the thing to have. Get your freebie and if the site is any good you can then go back and use your real details. This has cut my emails by over 100 a day.
