My Reviews

FoxClocks

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is probably a bit much to ask and I know you're busy but is there any way you could consider updating the legacy version to work again with 58/59 nightly? Mozilla is allowing legacy addons to continue in the unbranded firefox versions and I miss the toolbar icon that easily displayed the time and date. I'm not exactly sure but the recent break with foxclocks 4.3.2 might have had something to do with nsIPrefBranch changes. Thanks for your work.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.4.8).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

FoxClocks

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Another addon I've been using and enjoying for years gone. The latest legacy version 4.3.2 was actually working good in the 58.0 nightly up until the last few days but more changes by Mozilla and it's vanished. I hope if you are able to get the webextensions version up and running the toolbar icon is still there. It was so convenient to be able to quickly glance at the tabbar and get the date and time.

Open in VLC media player

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works good. Any chance for dailymotion support? VLC recognizes their urls and plays videos the same as youtube.

Edit: there's no plugin, it works the same way as youtube with a dailymotion.luac file. The only thing your addon would need to do is recognize the urls on its page and then add it to the playlist. I will file a request on FAQs page.

Context Search

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This works good in the latest nightly. It took some time but I got the same search engines exactly as I had them in previous firefox versions. Context search is a must feature for me.

One request: would it be possible to have an option that opens search results in the same tab? Context Search X is the only one that had it but it's no longer available for 57+.

Update: thanks for adding that same tab option in version 3.19, it works great when searching from a web page. Note: there is a bug if you try hightlighting text when searching from about:support, it won't search in the same tab but it does if you open a new tab.

Omnibar Lite

Restores easy search default change... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank-you for bringing back the search icon in the location bar. That was the nicest feature in the omnibar addon and it was missed after mozilla developers broke it.

Firefox 2, the theme, reloaded

Like this theme Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Nice theme, been using it for a long time so I'm glad to see it updated. The latest version fixes the customize palette, which was broken in 1.0.11. At least this can be used with 52ESR or until Mozilla in their infinite wisdom kills themes altogether.

Edit: rctgamer3 thanks for the reply. I found that setting in browser.css and changed it back to white, that's why I edited the review.

VLC Youtube Shortcut

Does what it's supposed to Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Simple but effective. It works perfectly with VLC portable, which I prefer but doesn't have the plugin. Mozilla is doing away with plugins anyway so this makes a good alternative. It also helps me to avoid the persistent memory problems with flash and HTML5 players that are getting worse with newer versions of Firefox.

Only downside is that some streams like those of music videos no longer work with VLC but that's not this addon's fault but a change at youtube. Hopefully the VLC developers will look into it.

Update: for those still experiencing playback problems with some streams using version 2.2.4.0 and earlier VLC.org has an official youtube parser update that you can get here:

https://github.com/videolan/vlc/blob/master/share/lua/playlist/youtube.lua

Right click the link from where you see "Raw" to download youtube.lua then locate the lua/playlist directory in the VLC folder, delete the existing youtube.luac file and replace it with the latest youtube.lua. You may have to add the extension .lua to the name when downloading it. That should resolve the errors.

FindBar Tweak

Fixed Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank-you for the fixes with 2.1.11b2. The one I missed was closing the Findbar when it loses focus. It is now back to doing it perfectly.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.10). 

YouTube HD Plus

Good Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Does exactly what I need it to. This would be even better if you added the option to control the volume at startup.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.0). 

Video DownloadHelper

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The latest version is only offering mp4s on youtube for download. How do we get .3gps and .flvs back? For now reverted to version 5.0.1 which shows all of the variants.

Update: 5.2.1 resolves it. All the variants are back.

Toolbar Buttons

Excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Nice to see this button pack updated, been using it for years.

The latest nightly already has a break with one of the buttons though; they redid the Page Colors setup in Options so that button no longer works. Hope you can fix it, that has to be my most used one.

Backward Forward History Dropdown

Needs options Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is useful but unfortunately in Australis it's stuck to the address bar. Is there any way to make it moveable with the back-forward buttons or separately? Classic Theme Restorer has that ability but some of its buttons break with other themes.

Add Bookmark Here ²

Lots of useful options Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a useful addon for bookmarking, wish I had installed it long time ago.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (23.0.20140225.1-signed). 

YouTube™ Video and Audio Downloader

It works Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This appears to be best downloader available at the moment, most of the other developers are giving up, probably due to Google's constant changes.

One small request: would it be possible to disable the bright orange download link on the page? All I need is the toolbar button as the orange really stands out too much.

Download Flash and Video

Fixed, sort of... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The latest version 1.51 fixes the youtube bug so that most videos are downloading again but now there's a problem with the toolbar icon not activating on the youtube page. A way around it is to switch between tabs then it turns from gray to blue.

Customize Your Web

Excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This addon works perfectly to fix youtube's ridiculous changes. First I was able to move the top search element, which is just another annoying toolbar that cuts into viewing space down to the bottom of the page. Then I pushed in the video screen that was needlessly hugging the border.

It's obvious that Google's webmasters have too much time on their hands but once again a Firefox addon restores the site's tolerability.

OpenBox

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Recently downloaded this addon but already it's broke in Aurora.

Download Flash and Video

Doesn't always work Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Nice addon but many youtube videos won't download with it. Here's an example:
