My Reviews

Show Anchors 2

Works Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Works well.

Criticisms:

1) I think the UI is confusing. Left-Clicking the anchor to get a menu is straight-forward, but i do not find it to be intuitive. I expected something like a right-click to work. The autocopy option mentioned by spirit is interesting.

2) The blue around the anchor is distracting.

3) Enabling/Disabling Show anchors changes location of page scroll.

Bug

- Page with two frames
- Show Anchors
- Reload page
- Only one of the frames retains the anchors.
- Example page, http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/server.112/e22490/ldr_control_file.htm

Dictionary Lookup Extension

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Nice! It adds "Define" in the context menu when a word is highlighted. Expanded that menu shows the word definitions.

The definitions listing is simple, almost clunky. I feel that it could be nicer, but no idea how. Regardless, it does what i want.

I would like an enhancement, that is, not requiring the word to be highlighted. Just always define the word the cursor is on when the context menu is generated.

Quick Dictionary Lookup from BeeDictionary.com

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Works well. No need to highlight the word first. Just shift and double-click.

Installed Add-On, restarted FF, plugin worked exactly once. Restarted FF again, then it worked every time.

Definition is very big and somewhat spammy with the icon on top and website prominently placed on bottom. Colors mildly hinder (eye stealing) easy reading of the definition.

Would be much nicer if definition was in the right click menu.

UPDATE

As the last two reviews, context menu corrections was growing, never resetting until a restart of FF. I removed the Addon.

Instead, i am using the clunky Dictionary Lookup Extension, which just works and is less obtrusive. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/dictionary-lookup-extension

Free Weather for Firefox

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

[website comment area, times out when clicking "Send Message".]

i like the info and layout, but i am not looking for an addon bar in my browser. what i'd love to see is a status bar icon that shows current temperature (color and number) and rain/cloudy/sunny, so i can look and see quickly. Mouse over should give hour-by-hour or next few days.

just a thought.

Decreased Productivity

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Nice addon.

Menu item is nice. But it needs accelerators. Also, the menu items do not work when accessed from the keyboard. It only works when clicked with the mouse.

Please add a shortcut key to toggle the current page.

ProCon Latte Content Filter

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works nicely.

I use it to block myself from websites. I would like an option to temporarily override the block.

For example, if i am reading a news article and it mentions "over 18", procon will block the page. However, being it is a news site, i want to override that block right now. Like continue, add 'continue anyway' or something. A very quick one click option to reload the page.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.7.9.7). 

YammerFox

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

agree with earlier comments, and have some of my own.

1) Great plugin. Much better than the air app.
2) Inconvenient to have to login to website
3) Alerting me to my own yams is annoying.
4) Separate tabs for "all" and "follow" would be nice.
5) Could use a (configurable) hotkey.
6) Allow for message expansion in client.
7) Show threading in client.
8) change colors. white on black is strong.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.8). 

Lazarus: Form Recovery

Excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is an excellent add-on. It has already saved me once or twice.

This should be a standard add-on for Firefox, next to No-Script and Ad-Block.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.2). 

NewsFox

Not bad Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The program itself isn't perfect, but progress seems to be made slowly but surely.Just a few quirks that you gets used to.

The interface is very nice, and it is why i use the addon for RSS.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.5). 

Old Location Bar

Very nice Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I created an account just to download this. Awesomebar was so annoying, i was tempted to uninstall FF3 to get rid of it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3).
