My Reviews

Context Search X

Simply the best! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Simply the best!

I'm using this add-on for a very long time now (switched to it when the original "Context Search" stopped working in early 2013 only to find that I had missed out on all the great additional features of "Context Search X" until then).

The two features I like most about "Context Search X" are
* (obviously) Being able to quickly search with all of my search engines from the context menu without having to switch around search engines - something Firefox never natively supported for some strange reason!
* Pinning of the menu to be able to perform multiple searches on-the-fly. This is a huge time saver!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.6.21.1-signed). 

Close tabs to the left

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Tiny yet extremely useful extension!

While Firefox devs argue this wouldn't be useful and hide behind Chrome parity [!] as apparent from the relevant bug report (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1009728) everybody using this add-on certainly wouldn't want to miss this great feature!

Stay-Open Menu

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Perfect, just what I was looking for!

I wonder why Firefox does not support such a feature by default: Opening only some links in a menu (in contrast to one or all what Firefox currently offers) seems like a very common use case to me.

ProxTube - Unblock YouTube

Does not work most of the time but doesn't get tired of bugging with adware Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This was a great add-on once.

Nowadays it does not work most of the time and (what is even worse) is bloated with Adware and constantly bugs the user with countless ads and "donation" requests.

Just uninstalled it for good...

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.0.1.1-signed). 

Greasefire

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Actually I used this add-on for a long time and thought it was a nice addition.

However I just realized, that Greasefire delays *every* page load (even when only switching tabs) by a considerable amount of time on the order of several hundred milliseconds! While this doesn't sound that much it makes browsing experience much more sluggish.

Despite this obvious flaw, Greasefire isn't very useful anymore anyway: Since userscripts.org is down and the list of userscripts can't be updated anymore it does not make much sense to keep it installed.

No Sleep Download

Great! Finally no more frustration due to interrupted downloads! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hi Tommy,

thanks for this great extension!

I was looking for such an extension for quite some time now and couldn't believe such a feature wasn't implemented into firefox natively.

Finally I can leave my notebook alone when downloading files without finding them interrupted by standby afterwards.

I hope this quickly get's adopted by other download plugins or firefox developers themselves.

Regards
Eduard


P.S.: Tested with Firefox 11 an works fine!

Scientific Calculator Toolbar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Since I had the same Problem as LNDM i looked into the issue myself.

You can download an updated version of the addon here:
http://www.file-upload.net/download-3575473/Status-bar-Scientific-Calculator-FF5.xpi.html

Besides solving the problem described by LNDM it also gives you the ability to freely choose the position of the icon.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.9.3).
