My Reviews

Thumbnail Zoom Plus

A Little Problematic Rated 4 out of 5 stars

- The ability to disable per site with version 3.1 cured a big pain. But you still can't exclude a site from the tool bar menu button; you have to open the extensions page, find this extension, open the options, find the corresponding section and type the name of the address of the site for each website! It is so cumbersome!
- Still the keyboard loses focus if you forget your mouse on a small image.
- If the thumbnail is the original image itself, and it is not loaded fully, TZP shows only the loaded part of the image (TZP assumes that the browser cache is always trustworty and uses the erroneous image data from there.).
- Has a very high miss rate; especially for large images.

Example:

Goto this URL: http://electronics.stackexchange.com/q/141739/5542

There are three images:
A) http://i.stack.imgur.com/FPxoi.jpg
1.228px × 694px (scaled to 630px × 356px)
B) http://i.stack.imgur.com/2347i.jpg
362px × 234px
C) http://i.stack.imgur.com/3lDxp.jpg
1.293px × 415px (scaled to 630px × 202px)

TZP opens images (2) and (3), but ignores the image (1).

Launchy

Not very user friendly Rated 2 out of 5 stars

No options to select in the GUI. Needs to be improved in all ways.

Video DownloadHelper

Best out there Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Captures video from almost every website like a boss.

Dictionary Tooltip

Stopped working Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I enabled double clicking in the settings. Worked fine for a few days. And then suddenly stopped working. I'm removing this now.

Google™ Translator

Useless Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Even though I can select an alternative language in the settings the only result I always get is translation from English to... English. That does not make much sense.
When I double click on an English word, it displays the exact same word as translation! What's the point of this??

Thumbnail Zoom Plus

Very Problematic Rated 3 out of 5 stars

- Has a very high failure rate.
- If the original image is too large to fit on the screen, TZP doesn't show it.
- If the thumbnail is actually the original image itself, and it is not loaded fully, TZP shows only the loaded part of the image.
- VERY IMPORTANT!: Need option for per site enable/disable.
- VERY FRUSTRATING: If you leave the mouse pointer on an image before typing text in a text area, you can't type the text, because the text area loses the focus.
- VERY FRUSTRATING: Select a text and CTRL+C won't work if you forget the mouse pointer on an image.

Pearl Crescent Page Saver Basic screenshot tool

Doesn't save dynamic content Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This extension doesn't save what you actually see. I suggest you the extension named "Abduction!" instead.

EDIT: An example page in which this extension fails:
http://dc183.4shared.com/doc/0GuwmxQT/preview.html

I will edit my review if this is fixed.

Abduction! - Webpage Screenshots Screen Capture

Works Wonderfully Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm occasionally saving pages as image. Until now, I was using Pearl Crescent extension for this. Today, I saw that, it couldn't properly save pages with dynamic content. After a little Google search, I found this extension. And this one works perfectly.

Dictionary Pop-Up by Dictionary.com (Official)

USELESS because of two reasons Rated 1 out of 5 stars

1) Yes, it translates the word you want. But it doesn't help you if the translation also contains word(s) which you don't know; and usually does.

2) Another negative behavior of this extension is, for example, you are looking up a word like "admiring". It translates the word as "action of showing admiration". The translation uses the same word with different conjugation! If someone is looking for a word, then that usually means he doesn't know its root meaning. Would showing him a different word which is conjugated from the same word help? Isn't that stupid?

Classic Compact

Always Incompatible Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This garbage never works, because it is always incompatible with the latest version of Firefox.

Update Scanner

This caused me a big problem Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I've been working for an important project for the whole week. There were a tons of opened tabs of critical pages which I hadn't bookmarked yet. Update Scanner's pop up window showed up. It was set to stay there forever until I manually close it. But the close button was missing on it this time. I couldn't close it. I closed Firefox instead. Firefox window disappeared but US's tiny window stayed there. I had no choice but terminate Firefox from the Task Manager. When I started Firefox once again, all of my tabs were gone! My session was not saved. How do I find back all those web pages from all those tens of thousands of pages in the history? I hate US so much!

ColorfulTabs

Too thick, colors are ugly Rated 2 out of 5 stars

The tabs are too thick vertically. I am using Compact Classic, and my eyes have got used to thin version of everything. I installed this extension and I was very disturbed by the thickness of the tabs. I just looked too ugly with this add-on. I became so sick that I removed this without first checking its options. I still don't know if there was a cure in the settings.

Dictionary Pop-Up by Dictionary.com (Official)

What if I don't know a word in the pop-up window? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Google's official extension for Chrome opens a pop-up panel the same way. But if you select/click a word on that pop-up window, the panel updates to show the meaning of this second word. This feature is critical for English learners.

RefreshBlocker

Works, but is not very user friendly Rated 3 out of 5 stars

+ Disables meta refresh

- Prevents every kind of page redirection
This makes it impossible to login some websites which redirect user data into some login script page.

There should have been a toolbar button, from which user could be able to temporarily disable this extension when needed.

Better Torrent

Doesn't work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

When you click the pull-down box to select for search domain, the floating panel grays out. I tried searching in Fenopy, but it trys to searchs in the old Fenopy (currently non existing) site.

Facebook Select All

Works. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Work all right. Thanks.

Flashblock

Feture Request: Export/Import Whitelist Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works very nicely. After all years, still the best flash blocker out there.
Can you please put a feature to export whitelist, so that the user can import it in another computer.

Flash Block

No Whitelist Support Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Works, but doesn't have white list feature. A flash-block software is useless without white listing ability.

Save as PDF

Does not work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Fails miserably when saving pages which has any dynamic content. Also, it is not safe, takes your URL and tries to convert it in a remote server.
