My Reviews

showmeIP

Uses button on toolbar Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Clicking on button gives nice big display of IP address.

No options, and description on Mozilla Site could do with some description of how it works.

It seems to work but I'm after a permanent display

What's My Public IP

Same as previous review Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Totally unfunctional, not worth any stars, total dud

It would appear the developer doesn't "read every comment and want to hear what you think."

My IP Finder

Doesn't work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

No button appears, no display, nothing FF47
Not worth any stars whatsoever

Media Converter and Muxer

Works perfectly Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Simple clicked the button to download & install ffmpeg.exe and it worked without a hitch.

The complaint I have is that I wasn't given a choice where ffmpeg was installed. It installed in my profile folder which means its only available to me and only in the one profile (I use a couple of profiles). I dislike apps which don't give a choice of install location, and as this add-on appears to allow the user to point the add-on at an existing ffmpeg install, I don't see why it won't allow the install location to be chosen, after all, the path to ffmpeg doesn't seem to be hardwired.

However, the install went fine and the install path was found automatically. Installation took less than 1 minute and the add-on was working.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.9). 

Manually sort folders

only works for some accounts Rated 3 out of 5 stars

very handy when it works, but only works for a few of my accounts. For the others, the app shows the folders sorted how I want them, but even after refreshing, the folder pane is unchanged.

Web Clipper for Trello

Sadly, not a 'proper' webclipper Rated 2 out of 5 stars

What it does is copy the page title and the URL to the Trello card.
What I'm looking for in a webclipper is something that copies the whole page, like a screenshot and saves it to the app. The Evernote clipper seems to be unique because it does save the whole page which is vital to archive something. With this and other 'clippers' that simply save the URL, what you will see when you follow the link is the latest page, not necessarily the page you first saw and wanted to save.

But if you can live with the limitation of just saving the URL and title, this add-on works well, the UI is very good and it asks which Trello card you wish to save to. Perhaps a setting where it either always saves to a default card, or asked you for a location would be useful. If you do a lot of 'clipping' and always save to a default card, that setting could save a bit of time.

This add-on shows promise and some good design features, if the author can make it save the whole page I am sure it would prove very useful as there are many people asking for a true webclipper like the Evernote one.

I wish him well with it.

Evernote Web Clipper

Does exactly what it says Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Using FF 41.0.1 and works perfectly. Only niggle is that I cannot locate the button where I want it, but understand that is fixed on the latest update.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.0.15.1-signed). 

Trello Improvements

Great add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Adds a few useful extras to the Trello UI. As indicated in red in the author's diagram, the add-on shows the number of cards in each list and the board, the card's unique number, and extends the coloured label across the width of the card (complete with text) rather than the rather small square that Trello displays. This last one really makes it easy to see what label is applied to a card. My labels indicate the priority of the card, so making them easy to see ensures that nothing slips past me. Big labels are especially useful if you have poor eyesight.

The author is active in developing and supporting the add-on and welcomes suggestions for new features.

trello-share

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Doesn't work. Get popup message "adding to Trello board" or similar wording, but nothing happens. No confirmation, and certainly no board. Tried several pages and several different boards. Nothing.

Also, it doesn't show all my boards, but they're all visible in Trello and in the android app.

Problem with FF40 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Since updating to FF40 yesterday, I am unable to bookmark anything. There is no dialog for bookmark properties, and nothing happens. Had to disable and am looking for a replacement.

Undo Tab Menus

Stopped Working Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Used to work well but stopped some time ago. Hasn't been updated since january 2013 so it's probably dead now and a replacement is needed.

Search Organizer With Baskets

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

useless.
Apart from the fact I can see it in my list of addons, there is absolutely no indication that it is installed, let alone working. It is totally invisible and non-functioning.

Tabulous

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Pretty good, shows promise, works well, simple to use. Features are a bit limiting though, specifically, being not being able to group or sort the saved tabs, and not being able to see the assigned tags for all the tabs - you can only see the tags for the focussed/selected tab.

TagSpaces Web Clipper

Oh dear, gone downhill Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I've had mixed results with this addon. In the early days, I struggled to get it working. Then it worked great for a decent time, then it was broken when FF30 came out. The author recently (now that FF31 is out!) released a workround to that problem on his website. Sadly, although it worked, more or less, the updates and 'fix' have introduced more bugs, and it's easier to say it doesn't work - explaining the details would take too long. I even tried the standalone version, which has several differences from the addon. The standalone worked, but overall, its quite poor. The addon wouldn't use the tags from the standalone! Neither would it open the saved files, the standalone version opened some files, some of the time.... get the idea. oh, and everytime the addon updated, I had to delete all the built in tags that I would never use, and recreate my own.

I emailed the author bemoaning the fact that the app is so much trouble but didn't get a reply. Perhaps he doesn't like honest criticism because he's always replied in the past.

Overall, great potential, and much respect to the author for what the concept and what he managed to do, but it should be fulfilling that potential now, its not new. Its too buggy with too many features that don't work so I've abandoned it. Perhaps if the author spent more time bug fixing and testing adequately rather than writing for other platforms, the addon might not have so many problems.

I'm looking at other things now, including Pocket which is also available on other platforms, and Tabulous a FF addon. Both work differently than this addon, but may suit your needs.

Color toggle

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works well on desktop. An android version would be very useful.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.15.1-signed.1-signed). 

Dark Backgrounds Switcher

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Abandoned by Developer
I emailed the developer with a problem, and he promptly replied to say that he doesn't actively maintain the addon, or even use it.

Perhaps someone can pickup this addon and continue to develop it?

TagSieve

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Used to use this in its previous form. Sad to see the versions from the authors page (including the one labelled temporary fix) gives xml errors.

Not going to mess around editing it. Consider it dead now.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.3.1.1-signed.1-let-fixed). 

Flat Folder Tree

TB 24.6 Doesn't work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

No sign of any extra view, and folder options are greyed out. NB, this is same with the 'compatibility solved' version DL and installed manually

shame, looked useful

RSE Tools

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Worthless. Not worth a fraction of a star
Even worse, dishonest and misleading. Does nothing unless you are registered user, in contravention of the add-ons description. Even then, what it does is not what it claims to. All it can do, is search the storage site.

disallow Script Button

Like Magic Rated 5 out of 5 stars

very good. had a tab hijacked using 'onunload' script which presented a persistent dialog box asking if I wanted to leave the page. Clicking yes only closed the box, not the tab so I couldn't close the tab (I'd never buy or install anything from a company that behaved like that.I was faced with having to Cnt Alt Del FF and losing the work I had in the other tabs. I installed this add-on because it was 'no restart'. After adding the add-on's button to the toolbar, I simply changed to the affected tabs, clicked the button to stop the script, and then simply closed the tabs.... like magic.
