Textarea Cache

Not working in FF 44 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Please fix it for Firefox 44.
This is one of the Add-Ons not working on 44 and making me wait to update from 43.
So please fix.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.3.2.1-signed).  This user has 2 previous reviews of this add-on.

Text Link

Not working anymore Rated 1 out of 5 stars

On Firefox 43 it opens strange Links instead of the clicked links. I switched to URL Links now.
Before it was very good.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.0.2015060501). 

Hide My Ass! Web Proxy

Not working well Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Maybe for some few using this add-on could be useful, but normal use is not working well. CSS missing and such weird stuff, so I uninstalled it quickly.

FoxToPhone

Not working anymore. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Installed this Add-On with expectations, installed the old apk from Google Play and set it up on my Samsung S4 with CM12.1 but it doesn't work.
I get this: "Fetching request token failed. Status 404"

I installed then also the Chrome extension and here I get the well-known bug (issue 319) when I try to login, a empty page with only:
Redirect...
Nothing happens after, no redirect coming.

No, this has nothing to do with the time zone, I guess it is broken and as the development has stopped for a while, that was it.
I will uninstall it.

PageDown PageUp Buttons

Useful Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I use it in Firefox beta for Android on a SGS4.
The manual scrolling is annoying so this add-on helps.
One thing could be changed: the long press duration for all to top or bottom is a bit long. Could be shorter, 500 ms absolutely enough.
Thank.

Measurer

Good start Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Looks nice, but not yet reliable. Stops working after short time then I have to restart Firefox or use MearureIt again ;)
Missing also a resize like in MearueIt.
But the best is, that this Add-On is under development (I hope?).
Thanks.

Unhide Passwords

Not fully working in FF 44 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Great Add-On, very useful at home and work :)
Normally there is nobody behind my back, in the rare cases this could happen, I use a slightly modified version of it, where I can doubleclick and disable the feature till a reload of the site. Actually this is code from the early version 1.2, which can be get from the repo of mozilla, here on this site at the bottom.
Here is the modified version: is.gd/unhide_passwords_fcw and I hope the developer appreciates it that it is spread :)
On Firefox 44 it is not anymore working fully, so I stay on FF 43

NewTab&Swipe Navigation

Makes Firefox unusable because of the gestures Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Like the others say: the gesture sucks. Here a version without it: is.gd/ffanewtab (I commented out all the gesture stuff). I thought a while this was a Firefox bug till I noticed that this add-on does gestures too. To scroll down or up with this gesture is a pain, because very often it switches the tab instead of scrolling. Without the gesture (see above link) it is a nice Add-On :)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.1-signed.1-signed.1-signed). 

Video DownloadHelper

Version 5 works again on FF 36 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I installed Version 5.0.0a1 from:
https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/video-downloadhelper-5
exactly:
http://www.downloadhelper.net/install-beta.php?version=5.0.0a1
and it works again with FF 36 :)
The downloads are not anymore controlled in the FF Download Window, but never mind. I can see the progress in the Video DownloadHelper's PopUp.
This add-On is the only I know which downloads any stream I could view in the many many streaming portals. I just open the stream, start to view it and then the Icon of VDH starts turning. I can then download the very same stream and then I stop viewing the stream that I dont download it twice (and loose bandwith).
Works mostly.
Thanks

Provider for Google Calendar

Very useful Add-On! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you for this Add-On, I use it since long with lightning.
Since some days I noticed that there is no entry anymore and I read here about it. I just needed to delete the google calendar in Lightning and recreate it, then I was asked to allow the Add-On to edit the Google calendar and again it worked.
It is a new system now, previously access was through the XML string in the calendar settings on google, now it is through a session string I guess.

Folderpane Tools

Use "Manually Sort Folders 1.1" Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This Add-On is now forever broken, it seems.
So I looked around and like another here posted (user "RDL"), the only reason why I used Folderpane Tools was to set the Local Folder on top position.

Always I used the much better Add-On "Manually Sort Folders", which I thought just could not set the Local Folder on the first position, but this wrong!

It only has to be set as Default Folder (on the first tab right side in the middle) and after TB restart the Local Folder is the top one.
See this on github: https://github.com/protz/Manually-Sort-Folders/issues/30

So no need at all to fix this Folderpane Tools, just use the Manually Sort Folders Add-On for good :)

Find Toolbar Tweaks

Add-On is abandoned. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Not working on Firefox 32.0
Use instead the newer Findbar Tweak, this is working.

Was shortly broken on Firefox 29 but fastly fixed.

Quick Gestures

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

On FF 27 Beta and SGS2 I nearly always get: "Gesture canceled". I never was able to get one gesture done.

Proxy Mobile

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Not compatible with FF 27 Beta.

Network Preferences Add-on

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Will comment it, when it reaches at least beta stadium. At the moment it is too annoying only to change the "Configure Proxies" Setting from 5 to 1 (to enable).
2014-01-08 on SGS2 with 4.1.2

Save As TXT

Contact Tabs

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Sehr nützliches Add-On um die verstaubte Bearbeitungsmöglichkeit von Thunderbirds Kontakten erheblich zu erweitern.
Version 2.0.4 hat ein kleines Problem mit dem Chat-Tab, aber das wird bald behoben.

CookieSwap

Great Add-On Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This Add-On is one of the most useful Add-Ons that Firefox make the browser I use since a long time and other browser just never reached in functionality because of these Add-Ons.
With CookieSwap I can set several Cookie-Identities and just switch e.g. between different GMail accounts by clicking another identity.
The cookies (which represents the logins) are saved and restored.
Very useful Add-On.
It just doesn't work with the "new" private mode of firefox, it is then deactivated, but this is by firefox-design and cannot be changed yet.
