DTA = Downloader That is Awesome Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Along with DTA's regular downloading capability, the dTa one click for all tabs does a wonderful job.

Only one thing is now coming to my mind and that is about UI. DTA manager opens up as separate window. I will like to see it behaving like firefox's default downloader. When clinking on that downward facing gray (blue) icon, it shows the default manager and auto hides when clicked outside.

It would be very nice if DTA manager window acts similarly. Clicking on manager icon will bring it on and auto hide when clicked outside. That's a feature request which I hope that Nils Maier, Federico Parodi and other developers will consider. Thank you all for making firefox so beautiful and worthy.

HTTPS Everywhere

It is now verified and works Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This time a 5 star. Thanks to the developer of HTTPS Everywhere for taking necessary steps by verifying it by mozilla. EFF deserves a lots of thanks.

I have another point to raise. I have previously posted a review of https Everywhere here whose permalink was . But now I can see that the review is gone. why so? I am attaching the previous review-

Those who knows and cares for security related issues will surely like this addon. It has a very desirable function. But like PrivacyBadger by EFF, HTTPS Everywhere too needs to be verified by Mozilla. A non verified security addon with yellow download button is not good for earning user's trust. I will bevery happy if EFF takes necessary steps to get it's addon verified by mozilla.

Flash Killer

A good old no-nonsense tool Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The title says all. It is good. But I think time has come to include support for HTML5 videos.

Session Manager

Unbelievably Good Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The Session Manager addon is unbelievably good. When I first activated it, I had doubt in mind. I though that when the mighty firefox itself is not that good in recovering the lost sessions and the *.bak file fails to recover the session after manually renaming it, how can addon do that more precisely! But in all my surprise I found this addon to achieve 100% success in recovering sessions after all types of session endings - freezing due to flash, power outage, system crash, unintentional restarts and normal Firefox closing.

Add to Search Bar

Very good addon but found a bug recently Rated 4 out of 5 stars

A fantastic addon. The task it does is simple but important. After long time of usage, recently I have found a problem. In FF 28 I have used HELP menu > Restart with Add-ons Disabled.... This disabled all addons. Later when I restarted FF with addons I saw that the search engines that I had included using this great addon, were no more listed in the list of search engines. I hope the developer will take care of this problem.

Update on May 3rd, 2014: I have found another glitch. Updating from FF28 to FF29 removed all the search engines add using the add on. Point to be noted that I had automatic search engine upadting off from options.

"thank you" page is auto opening Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Each time while firefox starts the "thank you" page is auto opening - Firefox v=19.0.2. Screegrab v=0.97.7c .

Hello Oleksandr. Writing this in response to your query. It seems that the problem is auto solved with Firefox v 20.0.1.

Screen Capture Elite

Productive but incompatible Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Its a nice Add on. The capability of precisely selecting certain part of the page is nice.

But what bad about this add on is that each time Firefox gets a new update, this add on falls behind. Why? Several times I have attempted to disable the add on compatibility of Firefox to run this add on thinking that the developer must get enough time to solve the issue. But now it seems that the incompatibility issue has become a tradition for this add on.

I feel sorry to say that I am no longer going to disable the add on compatibility to launch Screen Capture Elite as even after the release of Firefox 12, the add on faces compatibility issue as usually..

I hope the developer will be serious enough to save his creation, a nice creation indeed.

Selection Links

Handy indeed Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Stopped working recently on firefox 5 (Windows). Context menu options are available. But after clicking on "Selection Open" nothing happens. Anyways, one thing I must say that the add on is handy indeed. Wishing to get it back in action.
