Fuzzy Time

Firefox V29 - another useful extension killer. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Unfortunately this extension has now been rendered infective due to the absence of a FF status-bar. Although an add on extension (Add-on bar) is available to provide status-bar functionality sadly it does not recognize fuzzy time, sigh........!

InFormEnter

Request Rated 5 out of 5 stars

As I do a lot of on-line surveys this extension is terrific. However if you have a problem with your browser resulting in a re-install (which has happened to me several times), you lose everything that you have entered on your listing - very frustrating especially if the listing is extensive.

In view of the above, can the owner please include an option to back up the user listing in order that recovery is possible, or if this is already possible (and I've missed it) instructions on where to find same?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.75).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Redirect Remover

Now what?? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've been using this extension since it was first introduced and it's worked very well until now - the latest version of Firefox?? Understandably the owner may not be in a position to update the extension - if so then why keep it on the system?

It's about time that Mozilla introduced an extension housekeeping regime to remove defunct extensions, because by retaining them all that happens is that users get hacked off with seeing good functional tools that don't work.

The only other solution is not to update Firefox - which defeats the object of using a dynamic browser.

Yahoo Toolbar

Absolutely useless! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This version is a right pain in the backside. Every time I use it I lose "some" kind of (right mouse click) functionality and the only way to reset it, is to disable and re enable the extension.

Absolutely useless!

InFormEnter

It's the dog's bo**ocks! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I do a lot of on-line surveys and this extension saves a lot of time having to constantly enter common date, etc so much so that I use it exclusively for all such activities. There is an occasional issue whereupon sometimes the markers don't respond - especially on some forum sites though this may be the fault of the site rather than the extension. In any respect it's a minor problem that I'm happy to live with.

Request - if the developer does read this - can I ask you to kindly respond to e mails, otherwise please keep up the good work.

Tree Style Tab

Bloated and over complicated. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Since my last review, the extension's functionality has got worse. No matter how I try to restore my original working settings I cannot get my original functionality back. As far as I'm concerned this extension has now become bloated and over complicated. I only wish I could revert back to before the last update - at least that worked like "I" wanted it too.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.2009102801). 

Tree Style Tab

Degree required to use, sigh......! Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Every time this extension is updated all of my previous setting are lost - really irritating! I wouldn't mind but there's so many settings, it can take ages to get the menus back up to user optimal.

Include user help actually within the extension so that users are not wasting time messing about having to go back and forth between settings and constantly having to visit the website for help.

Would be great if a user default selection was added to "reset" all settings. Apart from the above a really useful extension.

Back to Close

Still not responding to user's comments. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I cannot believe that the author's got the nerve to claim that this extension works like the Tiffenbach original - it doesn't. The function should work with a right click and select not with an icon on the toolbar.

What a waste of time!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.7). 

Jules-Hu

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It's certainly got potential and most welcome seeing as the original roadsign author can't be bothered to get off their backside to update their version for Firefox V3.

However, get rid of the ghastly white background on the toolbars and you'll be on to a winner!

In the meantime keep up the good work.

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

Crash Test

Good concept - needs more work. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Icons will look good against a plain background. However please get rid of the yellow in the menus, the colour saturates many of the menu icons and the text.

Otherwise please keep up the good work - potential for a really good theme.

road-sign

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Just wish the developer would update it for use on Firefox V3.

Although the current version (sorta) works on FF V3 you lose the scroll bars. so if the developer does get to see this - please get your finger out and update it for FF V3.

OpenBook

Would be nice. Not yet rated

Updated to run of Firefox version 3 - maybe that's why it won't work on Firefox 2? Was/is it supposed to work on Firefox V2+. If not, them why are extensions being added that aren't compatible with the current (available)standard?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.0.0). 

Tree Style Tab

Another request please Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Since I asked if you could add a function that will allow the user to keep the parent always open whilst allowing child tabs to stack up - which you very kindly added - great!

Could you also create an icon that can be added to any tool bars will allow one to open the options dialogue box directly instead of having to constantly navigate (to same) through the tools/extension options menus? It would be nice to be able to change the extension settings on the fly.

Keep up the good work.

Cheers

Media Pirate - The video downloader

Just needs. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Have used the extension (recently) on Utube and (yes) it works. Just needs to work on more (obliging) sites or autonomously and you're laughing.

Keep up the good work.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.3). 

NoScript Security Suite

It's the dog's danglers. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

One of the best supported extensions around with an emphasis on "proactive" security maintenance.

Brilliant - keep up the good work!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.6.08). 

Save Session

Recent discovery. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Must admit I've been using this extension for a long time and it's proved very useful. However I've been having problems with pages taking a very long time to load and discovered that this extension is the culprit.

Disabling same has reversed the page loading problem, so (alas) I'll do without it rather than struggle any further.

Spamato4Thunderbird

great concept but: Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Very slow to respond, I.e. I can dump the spam well before the application can.

I've asked the designers to update the application so that THE USER can dictate where the dumped SPAM goes to as I'm fed up of having to keep moving files from the Spamato folder into the trash - they're not listening!

The silly SPAM music is very irritating - no option to switch off.

That's it

Personal Menu (Personal Firefox Button)

Not clairvoyant! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

A very good concept. However an explanation of how some of the features work would be useful, E.g. the function "Ad By Id" what does this do? how does it work? I've tried all sorts of permutations and keep getting the same result "Item does not exist" what's all that about then?

In addition, would be nice to be able to get into lower menus, E.g. Extensions Options\******** as many features are kept only there, E.g. Block Site.

A little more work required to really improve this extension - keep up the good work.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0.5).
