My Reviews

QR Code

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great add-on!

I especially like that is as lightweight as possible (only 6 kB).

Two things that would make this add-on even better and would make it able to win the final star:
* An entry in the tools menu (I don't like add-ons cluttering my UI with their buttons but obviously this is the only option to access QR Code at this time)
* A possibility to enter arbitrary URLs (instead of just the current URL) and generate a QR code for that.

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...

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

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).
