I love the concept of this extension, but it is so terribly buggy, I can't stand it. I have a huge number of empty log entries. Apparently, TMN has been submitting empty searches.
TMN doesn't work at all unless I enable "Use tab to search". But when I enable that option, TMN slows Firefox to an absolute unusable crawl. Also, when a new search is performed, the tab it's running in turns the loading animation on and off over and over and over.
Validating the RSS also doesn't appear to do anything. I get no feedback whatsoever when I use that function.
I'd pay $50 for a fully functional bit of software of this type.
I could not get it to behave. I kept getting prompts for "smoothwheel" and a couple other extensions. Using the "Whitelist" button did modify the whitelist, but it didn't make the prompts stop. I also tried manually editing the whitelist (yes, I'm familiar with regexes), but it was of no use.
Even if it worked properly, the GUI is terrible. Configuring it is very inconvenient.
* Your IP address.
* Unique identifier which tracks your installation
* Your geographic location.
* The URL of the PREVIOUS web page you visited before visiting their site.
* Words you look up (of course).
* And so on.
And they share everything with other parties.
"The one-star review was crap." Hilarious. This is from a person who calls the WebRTC functionality a "vulnerability".
My "one-star review" accurately pointed out that this extension did not notice changes to the applicable setting that were made outside the extension itself. The developer replied positively to my review, said "Good call", and improved the extension as a result. Then, a real expert chimed in.
Thanks for updating the extension. Well done.
@Nope: Although Chrome does not natively allow you to block WebRTC (at the time of this writing, anyway), there are Chrome extensions that can block WebRTC in that browser. Please find them, and go back to using Chrome.
Along with another reviewer, I think it makes more intuitive sense for a grey toolbar button to indicate that WebRTC is disabled, not enabled. I also found that this extension's toolbar button does not notice changes made to the media.peerconnection.enabled setting outside of its own toolbar button. This is poor design. Also, that is an uuuuuugly icon.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.2).
The name is a misnomer; there isn't much here that Locationbar² doesn't have. Actually the main options I care about are gone, such as the ability to change the color of the highlighted domain name, or make it display in bold ("strong") font.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.1).
I've found this to be the best video downloader available for Firefox, and it doesn't have the nasty privacy concerns that some others do. Great developer, too.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.9.24). This user has a previous review of this add-on.
I found it blocking certain images on amazon.com. The images were coming from images-amazon.com. Temporarily allowing all requests resolved the issue. So, RP must be blocking something that would show in the list of "Blocked destinations", right? Wrong.
Why wouldn't it? Because it's not smart enough. I had to dig to find out what was going on, and create a rule with origin ssl-images-amazon.com and destination images-amazon.com. This was the first and only site I've visited since installing this extension, because apparently privacy and security is supposed to become a full-time hobby.
I recommend installing it along with NoScript so you can stop wasting time enjoying the internet, and devote 13 hours a day instead to configuring Firefox extensions.
Simply does not work. Failed me when I needed it most--when I tried doing a profile restore. It would put up the confirmation dialog, I'd click OK, then ... nothing. Stare into the void. And it had a really annoying habit of flashing dialogs that then seemed to disappear. Sometimes they were underneath other windows, other times they went into a bit bucket somewhere.
In short, this thing wasn't even worth the time it took me to write this review and spit.
Edit: I do not owe it to you to seek support before writing a review. Your extension did not work, and got the review it deserves.
This is still the best ad blocker available. I've tried the others, and some of them are truly laughable, particularly the one that has only a small handful of filters, which are not user configurable. Wow. It's hilarious!
Some of you people seem to be deluded. This extension doesn't do anything at all. I used Nirsoft DNSQuerySniffer to verify that host names were not being resolved until links were actually clicked. Yes, I enabled this extension in the Tools menu first.
The ALPHA 1 version of VDH 5 worked better for me than most "final" versions of any type of software you might care to mention to me. Best of the best.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.9.24).
This extension (or, more accurately, the Mozilla Plugin Check web page) confused me when it kept telling me that Flash was out of date, yet no update was available. Turns out it was trying to look out for me. There were Flash 0-day exploits out there, and no update yet available. At least I knew something was up. Thanks.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6.2.5).
This is a nice extension. I know it's not "hard" using about:config, but it would be easier if one didn't have to. Please consider adding a GUI. Thanks.
I've been using it for a long time. Today, I finally noticed that it hasn't been doing anything other than wasting my time. I just happened to notice cookies that are not whitelisted but have been in place for over a year. All this time, I thought it was deleting these cookies. All this time, I've been wasting my time whitelisting. No, I am not using private browsing. No, I am not using some other cookie extension that interferes.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.6).
Oh, how I HATED IT when they got rid of the app bar. My workaround had been to always show the menu bar, and put all my app icons there. But even after weeks of this, I could not get used to it.
And why do away with the app bar? Even if you come up with some lame reason for it, it's still hard to defend not having a way to get it back somehow, without an extension. This extension is the next best thing.
Fábio Magnoni is correct. I just built a gallery of many JPG files on a site, but when I choose "Select all files" and then the "Download files" button... nothing happens. Fortunately, you can still download them using the DownThemAll extension.
Edit: Thank you very much, foxyspider.
I was experiencing a really annoying bug, but the author fixed it rapidly. This would be great customer service if "customer" also referred to someone who was getting something for free!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.10.2).
I have two issues with this extension:
1. The icon displayed is counterintuitive. I would expect the smaller one to indicate that I was the sole receipient, and the larger one to indicate that there were multiple recipients. Obviously.
2. It only supports the default email address for the account. If you receive email at more than one email address (e.g. with a catch-all; domain owners will know what I mean), those email addresses are all ignored.
Edit: I appreciate that the extension supports identities. But why depend on identities at all? If an email has a *single* recipient, why not show a single-recipient icon? Why must the recipient be known to Thunderbird? Couldn't this at least be an option? I use an utter slew of identities, and I receive mail at all of them. Only one of them is an identity known to Thunderbird.
