My Reviews

S3.Menu Wizard

Great! Multiselect missing. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Finally a replacement for menueditor. It has more functionality like adding folders, renaming deselecting separators.
On the other hand the missing multiselect feature makes it rather cumbersome and time consuming to use. Because you can't move related menu items simultaneously. Or (un)check them.
Some ability to search the items there can be an awful lot of them, especially with a number of addons. The browser's page search feature doesn't work on the settings tab.

Location Bar Enhancer

It looks great. Works fine. But could do with a bit more features. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I think this looks great. Especially the progress bar compared to alternatives.
What I think is missing the most is the handling of subdomains too. With "smart text" I could go to mozilla.org from addons.mozilla.org with one click. Also there's no domain highlighting, which is desired, for better distinguishability between the domain and subdomains.
Another useful thing that's missing is to set the ctrl+click/middle click tab opening to a background tab. Sometimes I want to open multiple segments, plus I set anything else to open in the background.

Some ability to change the font would be nice. For some reason with smart text the urlbar text had a lot better readability even though I have the same font forced by css (DejaVu Sans). With this, other addons or without urlbar addons it looks worse.

(I tried enforcing a larger text size but the results weren't as good, don't know why.)

Flashblock

Broken Rated 2 out of 5 stars

It's not updated and hopelessly broken these days. Fails loading the video on metacafe when I click. Some times just got whitelisted by themselves and I couldn't untick it on the flashblock button. They didn't even appear in the list in the settings window. I had to delete the whitelist.
It started blocking the pdf viewer plugin once and I had to click three times for the document to load.

Go Parent Folder

An essential extension. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's great. It adds a feature long missing in firefox. Improves the usability of bookmarks immensely.
The only thing it lack is localization. It looks odd with a different language.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.8). 

Color That Site!

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's a neat tool. What I miss is a generic feature to replace all black text white background with something more pleasant. Unfortunately most website default to this stupid eyesore look.

Focus Regainer

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

It's getting broken. Some videos don't load anymore, but only play with a black screen. (eg.: dailymotion.com )
Too bad it's not updated, it was a highly useful extension.
Also it would have been nice if it worked with other embedded content not just flash.

Download Panel Tweaks

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great. The only thing I miss is the ability to retain the downloads even when firefox is closed and restarted. Firefox by default purges the list...

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.2). 

QuickToolbars

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Unfortunately it's a bit buggy. Hiding the menubar (default: alt+2) hides it and switches to the firefox button, but it doesn't bring it back.

Hiding everything (default: alt+6) only hides the tab bar temporarily, until I open a new tab or close one. Plus you can't hide the tabbar alone

Restartless Restart

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It's fair. But it doesn't override conflicting hotkey. Nor does it show a warning. (eg: ctrl+shift+r)
Also it lacks an option for a verification dialog to prevent accidental restarts, which is a desired feature for restarting just as much as for exiting.

Focus Regainer

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's a must have. It's ridiculous that without it I have to click in the location bar, or a tab to be able to take away the focus from flash.

Complete YouTube Saver

Doesn't follow youtube changes Rated 3 out of 5 stars

480p and 1080p+ are only available as video streams only with separate audio streams of different quality.
This addon does not make it available to download them.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.4.4).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

YouTube Center

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great addon. Has very few issues. A lot less than youtube by default.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.1). 

Restartless Restart

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It's cool. I only miss simple reload dialog. I keep accidentally relading the browser, most of the time when I want to press ctr+alt+t for tab duplication. I got rather used to the hotkeys as most users so asking before restarting would be nice.

NoSquint

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

ugh...
Status bar was removed ages ago, yet no toolbar label/button available for zoom level.

Zoom Page

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Something got broken no too long ago. If I middle click an image the zoom level changes. It's a nightmare with auto scrolling, which I use a lot.

Whatever I do in a page shouldn't even effect this addon...

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (7.0). 

Complete YouTube Saver

Excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This works very well, and has all the formats unlike others.
The only thing I miss is an in-page button near the video that some other addons have. It would make usage more straight-forward and convenient.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.4.2). 

YouTube tools

Invalid file naming for this video Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Youtube Video Preview

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It's great, but it would be much more useful if it showed the number of ratings. The information that a 1000 people voted something down or just one matters a lot.

YesScript

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I think this needs a whitelist too. For example on one website there's this really annoying page background ad link (which I constantly click accidentally), which since it's in js is there even if I hide the background in with the adblocker. But I need for the forum to work properly. (Where there aren't any background ads.) So I have to block/enable the site all the time.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.9). 

Undo Closed Tabs Button

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

It seems it's half broken with current versions of firefox. The context menu item doesn't appear.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.7.1).
