My Reviews

Snap Shots for Firefox

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Some of it was good.

But I find a video I like, stop it at EXACTLY the gram I want to grab, hit Snap Shots...

And it starts the video all over again.

Now what's with that???

Oh well, back to screen shots *sigh*.

Extended Cookie Manager

Searches? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It's OK, you can change the cookie, WHILE YOU'RE ON THE APPROPRIATE SITE, AT THE APPROPRIATE URL.

But the Firefox cookies control just needs a search function: let me put in part of a URL, give me all matches, let me change permissions there.

The way cookes are listed, it is almost impossible to find cookies: sub-directories, including www, are each listed alphabetically & separately from the main website listing.

So another solution would be to list cookies alphabetically BY DOMAIN NAME, NOT BY SUBDOMAIN:

mydomain.com
www.mydomain.com
subdirectory1.mydomain.com
yourdomain.com
www.yourdomain.com

etc.

Internote

Slows my browser Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I really like this product, and was using it a lot. Then my browser started slowing down. I really noticed it when I was trying to edit text in on-line forms (like this feedback form). When I hit CTRL+tab to select words, it was glacial. Then I started noticing that it was slow when I was switching among tabs, and selecting links, etc.

I disabled it. Hope you can fix it soon, I really like the product.

ScrapBook

Suggestion Rated 4 out of 5 stars

So far, I really like the functionality. It's great for news websites, and others that expire.

However... I would really like to be able to save the scrapbook bookmarks in my regula bookmarks, so that I have to look only one place for something I read?

Furl Tools

Didn't work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I'm not sure what was supposed to happen; I assumed it would archive a page on my computer. But it opened up a pop-up to furl.net, seemed to be trying to save it on their website... and then just sat there.

Not what I wanted.

Had to re-start Firefox (I'm using 2.0.0.3)
