My Reviews

Blank Your Monitor + Easy Reading

Better than the rest Rated 4 out of 5 stars

However, when switched off the text boxes (in this review, for instance) remain black, and refreshing the page doesn't have any effect.

Blackout

...and the 'bulb icon' is where? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Useless

Night Mode Pro

Better than most Rated 4 out of 5 stars

At least it hasn't got ghastly red and green text/ links. I'd rather text boxes were dark grey and the night-mode didn't change the appearance of toolbar/menu bar, as I've got NASA Nightlaunch theme which is already dark.

Youtube Downloader 4K - Video Downloader

Erratic Rated 3 out of 5 stars

In many videos the download button simply isn't there.

Youtube Best Video Downloader 2 - MP3 MP4 1080P

Idiot resolutions Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It NEVER lists 480p when vids have a max of 480p
It NEVER lists 720p in spite of vids being HD
It ALWAYS lists 1080p even when the vid is poor quality 360p

All you get is 240, 360, 1080

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.4). 

1-Click YouTube Video Download

Not good enough Rated 1 out of 5 stars

No 1080p - 720p Max.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.4.1).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

FlashStopper

Flashblock is dead. Love live FlashStopper! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

No autoplay on Youtube, which means no throwing megabytes down the drain.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4.4). 

Flashblock

Needs updating Rated 1 out of 5 stars

No longer works on Youtube. Even though it prevents the video from showing, it's still running - and gobbling up data.

Dictionary Pop-Up by Dictionary.com (Official)

As add-on, perfect. As US bias dictionary, not so good Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I’m sure non-American’s want American bias in their dictionary: it's here in Dictionary.com - all oriented to US spelling, place names, and history.

Three definitions of ‘legion’, one of them was “American Legion”. Being British I couldn’t give tuppence for this particular definition.

uBlock Origin

Extremely good. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Using it for a couple of weeks - no memory hog, always responsive, and the most effective blocker I've used. And unlike other blockers it doesn't break sites/pages.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.9.16). 

Session Manager

Good and bad Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Great for main computer, indispensable. But for my 15" 1280x800 laptop completely useless, as the bottom half of the Options panel is cut off making it impossible to save any options... and I have to close Options via Task Manager because the top half is cut off as well.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.1.12). 

BehindTheOverlay

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Doesn't remove what's on TOP of the overlay. If the sign-in or whatever can't be removed then neither can the overlay.

Google Translator for Firefox

Not good enough Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Too many times 'translate this page' ends up with a blank page.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.0.5.1.1-signed).  This user has 2 previous reviews of this add-on.

Unlimited Free VPN by betternet

Impossible Rated 1 out of 5 stars

So many sites - 'connection was interrupted'

Search term highlighter

Maybe just a Bold option? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This add-on displays both highlighted colour and Bold text. Using Google Search is fine, because when i delete all the colours the default or white highlight doesn't show up - any other non-white page and the highlight is displayed as white. I'd just like a Bold option.

And it's not very smart, is it? Search engine: words in inverted commas are highlighted every time, but random keywords like transitions buttock plump (try it!) without inverted commas are not highlighted. And it highlights totally random words after I've entered a comment or post in a forum or social media (another option to enable highlighting in search results only would sort this).

Tab Data (+Memory usage)

Total memory usage option? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I'd like to see memory usage across all tabs.

And in the 'Memory' tab in Tab Data - the list is according to tab order, not memory usage size,

Tab Memory Usage

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Just wish there was a Total Amount counter for all tabs.

RAMBack

Dramatically reduces cache Rated 5 out of 5 stars

All those other cache clearing add-ons at best have a negligible effect - this considerably reduces cache immediately.

It's especially helpful if a window with many tabs is always open. I use Google Books as reference, which consumes a huge amount of memory (over 1.6GB). When my referencing is finished for the day I hit Clear Caches and around 45% of memory is reclaimed - I can then slum it on the web with a smooth-functioning browser.

Tools > Clear Caches

Suspend Tab

Curious ommision Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I have a window always open with about 25 tabs for reference (Google Books... and they consume a lot of memory). 'Suspend all other tabs'... Great! Quickly and easily done. But why the hell is there no 'Resume all other tabs'? I'm not going to mess about 'resuming' each tab every time I want access the tabs in that particular window.

Memory Optimizer

Does absolutely nothing. Rated 1 out of 5 stars
