Feedly - Beyond Google Reader

Completely dependent on Google=Useless. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

As a Google Reader REPLACEMENT, Feedly is quite useless ― IMO it's just a wrapper for Google Reader. I'd exported my Google Reader feed, then thought I "imported" into Feedly, but I was wrong. PS: After I exported my feeds from Google, I deleted them, as I had my copy. All seemed well until I rebooted (I dump cookies each browser load). Feedly dumped EVERYTHING, wanting me to "re-sync" with Google, which I did, but as I'd already deleted everything in Reader, Feedly was also empty. Until Feedly is capable of retaining our feeds independently, I consider it quite useless, especially when Google shuts down Reader completely.

Send Link in context menu

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This extension works as described - I've already tested it. It's a shame to have to install an addon to replace what's always been available to us in the past, but I'm VERY grateful to the addon author - THANKS!

According to Mozilla forums, some "heat map" told them mailing links from the context menu wasn't being used often enough to justify keeping it there. I use it frequently to send my husband amusing/interesting links via email, as he doesn't do social sites and still uses a dumbphone. I wonder how long it'll be before we see something else put into the context menu - perhaps a "Partnered Link"?

Download YouTube Videos as MP4

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'd been using "Flash Video Downloader" to DL YouTube vids for a year or so, but it stopped working, even after making sure it was current. I tried many times, all their various extensions, but each DL was *empty*.

Uninstalled, then installed this addon, is actually DL'ing a YouTube vid - properly! - as I'm writing this review. And it's not as complicated as "Flash Video Downloader" either. Thank you!

G Clean

Google results not changed at all Rated 1 out of 5 stars

There's no X, A, or D icons to click on in Google Search results. Options give ONE option - to autorun on FF start. There is a new icon in the right status bar, when I mouse over it, the option to "Run G Clean" appears, but nothing happens when it's clicked (both single or double clicking).
Good luck on your exams. Hope you find time for G-Clean afterwards, for I can't find anything for FF to block search results since CustomizeGoogle stopped being supported.

Provider for Google Calendar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Instructions on the wiki state to access "settings" via the right side of Google Calendar, but of course Google's gone and changed things around again, so I couldn't find the XML button in the main calendar settings page.

I found the XML button by clicking on the DOWN button - next to my calendar's name (in the left portion of Google calendar), then clicking on Calendar Settings. I chose the 2nd XML button, since my calendar is not public.

After re-adding a new Google calendar to TB, using the new 4th radio button, then entering my Google PW, I tested by adding an event to my Google calender *on* TB, reloaded remote calenders from TB, then reloaded my Google calendar in the browser, and my test event was there in the browser too, YAY!

Colorful Fractal

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I like my toolbars compact, so I prefer very colorful personals like yours, thanks!


Rated 5 out of 5 stars

IMO, this is far superior to NoScript, even before NoScript started selling out to advertisers to allow certain sites with NoScipt's default settings.

It would be nice if it had advanced settings to only block certain things globally, instead of on a per-site basis.

Element Hiding Helper for Adblock Plus

FF 3.0.10 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The upgrade didn't cause complaints about AB's EHH, but EHH no longer works.

I'll go to a frequently visited site, and see things I know were blocked before the FF upgrade. I go through AdBlock's filters, and delete all the EHH specific filters for that site, then redo the site. But even then, the elements I just blocked reappear on reload.

I'm using FF 3.0.10 w/ winXP, thanks. I rated 4 because I love this addon, but one star less b/c it's not working for me at this time.

PitchDark for Fx

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The only thing I don't love about this excellent theme is the visited links color in the dialog boxes is default blue. IMO, it would would look much nicer to have a coordinating color. Other than that, it's very smart and clean looking.

Zoho Companion For Firefox(Formerly Zoho QuickRead)

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I like that it has a shortcut "Z" because it doesn't have a snazzy icon to catch my eye with all the other junk in the menu. I want it to open in a new tab instead of a new window though. Other than that, it's great - 4 stars

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I looked at this, and FoxLingo, and chose this one based on it looking simpler (not a gazillion menus and options to go through). I set it to translate English to Dutch, tried it out on one of my game sites, and it worked great. Thanks!
