My Reviews

Cookies Manager+

Basic level display Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Other add-ons for cookies are much better

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5.1.1). 

View Cookies

Was good, but not working now Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I've used this for years. Easy to use, very nice. It is the only one I can find that would show all the cookies for the web page, and only those cookies. All others show the entire cookie database, unless you set filters, which are tricky and unreliable, and you cannot see all the host, domain, and subdomain cookies in one go as this add-in does, and most of them cannot filter by path like this one does.

But in my FF version 20 on Windows, it does not show any cookies at all, anymore. Did version 20 break it? I tried re-installing it but it's still broken.

RequestPolicy

I wouldn't surf without it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A great security tool. Sometimes a nuisance to keep adding new sites to the approved list, but it has prevented me from going to unintended bad sites several times, and blocks ads. I wouldn't surf without it. It's good to know what material is being pulled into a page before it's too late. Especially Javascript where unknown danger may lurk.
I would like to see it enhanced to allow CSS sheets to be accessed without prior approval, possibly images too.

Folder Account

Great, except for one problem Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This add-on is great when I've received an email to the "wrong" account, and move it over (or filter it) to the folder for the right account. Then the replies will use the right return address, if I have the message's *own* folder selected. But there is a problem if I have several messages open, from different folders. If I don't watch out, the from address will use the folder I have selected, for the last message I opened, different from the message I am replying to. That is just as bad as using the address from the message itself, which is the problem I wanted to solve.

.Now I'll admit that it does what the description says it will do, but I just wish it did something a little different (and the description was likewise different.)

privateID

Too limited too Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I don't mind that it would use only one address book, but I want to be able to use a different address book for some mail accounts. That would warn me if I use a personal account to mail to co-workers or visa versa.
