My Reviews

StartupMaster

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Everything works fine apart from it asks for the master password twice at startup, rather than once. It's been doing that for about a month now. Would be great if the developer could fix this!

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

Plugins Toggler

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This extension gives easy access to plug-ins from the toolbar or status bar, so I no longer have to go into Tools > Add-ons. Having lots of plugins enabled can slow down the web browser and be a security risk; so this extension saves me a lot of time when I need to re-enable a plug-in to view some content and then disable it after.

Better GCal

Needs updating! Most don't work. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This extension needs updating!

Currently only 2 out of the 7 features work: Always use HTTPS and text wrap. Both of these are available as greasemonkey scripts on userscripts.org, so I'd recommend that.

Menu Editor II

No benefits from original Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This is the same as Menu Editor, if not worse.

The original Menu Editor is more up-to-date. This one is outdated.

Installing this on top of Menu Editor will bring back all your hidden menu items, by restoring to default. This can be fixed by removing Menu Editor II.

Strongly not recommended extension. Stick to the original!

Ghostery

Useless? Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I installed it quickly the other day thinking it would protect me from the 'ghosts' tracking me, until today when I read closer, it's just alerting me of them. What good is that? I know it's letting me know, but at the end of the day, telling me I'm being tracked doesn't help at all, I want to know how to stop it tracking me. Good luck for future development.

Favicon Picker 3

Great Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very useful, because I'm using Smart Bookmarks Bar extension to hide the text and only display the favicon on the bookmark toolbar. Sometimes pages have no favicon - so I can use this extension to give it one. :-)

The only thing it's missing is the ability to change bookmark folder icons. With that, it would be 5 stars.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.0.5). 

Pocket

Simple yet effective Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Simple idea, but very helpful if you want constantly have things you want to look at later on, rather than cluttering up your bookmarks. I put my Read It Later folder on the bookmarks toolbar for easier access.

Adblock Filterset.G Updater

Not recommended Rated 1 out of 5 stars

You might want to have a read on the Adblock Plus website about Filterset.G ...

http://adblockplus.org/en/faq_project#filterset.g

- Incompatible with the built-in subscriptions feature in Adblock Plus, requires a seperate extension which duplicates existing functionality.

- Not optimized for use with Adblock Plus, will slow down browsing considerably more than any other filter list.

- Makes ad blocking a lot more difficult, with heavy use of complicated regular expressions and a considerable number of exception rules, meaning on several occasions ads are unblockable.

Don't use it!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.1.3). 

FEBE

Great! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is a great add-on. Lets you backup your entire profile. Fantastic.

I have occurred a few problem like others,but problems I've come across have always been resolved, so I'm happy. :) Hope it is improved though.

Anyhow, recommended!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.3.1). 

TiX Now!

Doesn't work Not yet rated

Doesn't work. Nothing is copied to the clipboard.
Doesn't have much instructions either, so lost on what to do! I click the T button when on rapidshare, it says successful, yet nothing is copied to clipboard??

Text Link

Great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you for the latest update. It was annoying when I paste a link into Hotmail, press enter and it loads the website! I was about to disable it when I saw there was an update and it fixed it :D

Great add-on, very helpful. A+++
