My Reviews

TargetKiller

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works great in FF 13. Exactly as described and does exactly what I wanted.

Firefox Sync for Firefox 3.5/3.6

1.4 disaster Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I just wasted an hour disabling, reinstalling, and figuring out wtf is going wrong with my laptop's sync when I went to my other machine and saw the same issue. Sync no longer autoconnects or autosyncs, and the status bar button is gone.

How could you have screwed this up so badly, Mozilla?

Remember Certificate Exception

Love this extension. Please update for 3.6!

CustomizeGoogle

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Get OptimizeGoogle - this add-on is dead.

FirePalette

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Doesn't work with FF 3.5.7 and Firebug 1.5.

However, I found a better alternative that works great: Firepicker https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/15032

Firepicker

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works like a charm. It's the dream I've been having for the last year! Top notch.

One improvement I could suggest is support the up/down arrows, which would nudge the color up or down by 1 hex value, so you can tweak it without leaving the keyboard.

CookieSwap

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This add-on would have been perfect if you could swap cookies only on certain sites.

Basically, for each profile, you'd be able to define a list of domains that get their cookies wiped and then saved ones loaded. Think switching profiles and switching only the gmail logged in user, without affecting other sites.

Great concept, but not as useful as it could really be.

Thoughts?

Also, whatever2895, you give a positive review but 1 star? Did you just figure out how to get on the Internet today?

Tree Style Tab

Great extensions but doesn't save state between restarts Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I would give this 5 stars if it saved states between restarts (I'm using the latest Tab Mix Plus). The tabs reload but lose any kind of relativity. Is this possible?

Edit: I'm using a horizontal top layout and I'm unable to reorder tabs (at least right now, after some time of running firefox). This is a dealbreaker and I'm downgrading the extension to 2 stars until it's fixed.

Server Switcher

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Brilliant addon. I would only agree with others and add support for multiple switching options as we have staging, dev, and prod, along with potentially many dev environments.

Xmarks Sync

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Worked for me for a while but ever since the recent upgrades, the firefox toolbar layout is all messed up, and even restoring the default set doesn't help. Uninstalling xmarks sorts out the issue. I'm moving to SyncPlaces.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0.2). 

Show MyIP

Great simple extension, could use 1 more feature Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I was looking for exactly this plugin and liked it for 2 reasons:
1. it doesn't constantly slam the query servers - a quick click does an on-demand request for current IP.
2. it's so simple and not bloated.

I would give it 5 stars if it allowed copy/pasting of the address by right clicking, similar to the way ShowIP does (ShowIP shows IPs for the sites visited).

Linkification

Must have! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A must have extension! There's no reason not to have this.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.5).
