In a little more detail...

I do believe I'll add something more amusing later.

My Reviews

Organize Search Engines

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Same problem as others: breaks Mycroft.

FaviconizeTab

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

@stoopidken: Confirmed here as well. Seems to need a restart to take effect.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.2.1-signed.1-signed). 

Cookie Monster

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great add-on. Please update for the Firefox 4 Add-On Bar. Thanks!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.5.1-signed). 

Certificate Patrol

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great idea, and probably should be part of Firefox 4.x at some stage. Would definitely benefit from a whitelist for domains hosted on server farms whose certificates are jumbled and out of sync. See accountonline.com

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4). 

Searchbar Autosizer

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Firefox 4 support, please. Thanks!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4.7). 

Readability

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great idea. Please, more supported sites, more options (font face), and Firefox 4 support.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2). 

ErrorZilla Plus

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

@TheMac5010: That would be a very bad idea. Firefox 3.0 is EoL and insecure. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mozilla_Firefox#Release_history

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.1). 

PwdHash

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

@linopolus: The extension is the source. Download the .XPI and unpack it with any Zip 2.0-compatible archiver. Presto change-o, source.

It's still using MD5, though. I'd look for a hasher that implements SHA1 or (better yet) SHA512. Just in case.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.7.1-signed). 

bit.ly preview

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

No way to exempt internal addresses from plugin. Tends to break things like the Transmission WebUI. Support forum broken in Firefox.

OptimizeGoogle

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

So glad to see this extension resurrected!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.77). 

The Camelizer - Price Tracker

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Insanely useful, pleasantly tiny.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1). 

FireFTP

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Points off for distributing binaries in the XPI. More points off for making the build system depend entirely on Windows (with Cygwin utilities in CVS, even). Really unimpressed, likely to remain that way until this is crufted entirely in XUL and uses Firefox' own NSS library for crypto.

swrdmstr2009: Firefox and XUL add-ons aren't limited to anything. You're using a Win32 build that's limited to 4GB for no obvious reason. ( See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Physical_Address_Extension just for openers.)

Nice A.M.O people: Would be great if binaries-dependent XPIs were clearly labeled, plz.

LastPass Password Manager

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Huge, ugly (UI-ugly), not exactly a speed demon (on a T9400, 4GB, Ubuntu Jaunty), not real clear on how it works or what it uses to encrypt data (NSS would be nice, since it's sort of *built in* to all Mozilla products), and form filling needs an awful lot of work.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.51.4). 

TinEye Reverse Image Search

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works as well as you can expect right now. Needs a larger fingerprint database. jtang234: "Bing" is not a "company."

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6). 

CustomizeGoogle

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Unmaintained and mostly broken.

Stylish-Custom OLD

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent work.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.8). 

Covert Adblock Plus

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Does not do what it says on the tin. See Wladimir's comment farther down.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1). 

Auto Dial

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

WARNING: Anyone following the instructions suggested for enabling AD / TMP compatibility will discover that opening new tabs no longer focuses the address bar on new tab open. This behaviour persists until new tabs are *not* directed to chrome://autodial/content, whether or not AD is installed.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (7.1). 

Sage-Too

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Have to agree with johnspac-- Sage is nice, but I'm using Brief instead because I can keep articles around for a while. There are a lot of high-traffic sites that can easily start dropping entries if I don't look at the feed for a couple hours.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.1). 

CrossFTP

Please remove this listing. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This is a Java applet; not a Firefox extension. The stub add-on code can't even launch the applet without user intervention, and the application is completely independent of Firefox.

Please remove this listing.
