My Reviews

Bitsy URL Shortener

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Nice, works as stated.
If only it could kick off an email with the link as the body and the page name as the subject, it would be perfect..

Shorten URL (Bit.ly)

Now broken Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great, v40 breaks it. Hoping for an update.

This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Plain Text Links

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Love it. Minus 1 star as always changing focus to the new tab is annoying.

Really need to have open in background tab as an option. I would use this all the time, as I like to browse for links and then come back and review them, then return to whatever tab I wish.

Forecastfox (fix version)

Works better, but precipitation is wrong Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Everything works as before, but now it doesn't sit spinning trying to update or stick on a day.
I's sitting here with 4 inches of snow outside and FF shows a predicted precipitation of 0.20 inches, and a title on the popup of "Heavy snow." Something isn't right with that. Refreshing, changing sites, etc. don't help.
accuweather.com for zip code 25403 shows 4-8 inches today, and the popup shows "NaN in" now.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2.4f.1-signed). 

Shorten URL (Bit.ly)

Great addon, new icons confusing Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I used the taskbar icon for "shorten and email" for months and with the last update that icon disappeared. I finally found that it's now the "send link via email" icon that looks like like an envelope on a green background with a little yellow blob on the lower right corner. Also, a lot of icons now have that yellow blob, and they use Bitly to shrink the URL now. the right-click menu has that android-like "share" icon. This all needs to be explained more clearly in the instructions.

Other than the above, it works flawlessly, I love it, so 4 stars.

SpellBound

Just say NO....twice Rated 5 out of 5 stars

After seeing the pop-up twice and not knowing if it would go on forever, I contacted Mozilla and was told:
"As far as I can tell, the add-on should show the pop-up once, after it's installed. I did a quick test just now and the pop up appeared 2 times (a bug, maybe?) and then disappeared as expected. Asking users to change the homepage doesn't go against our policies. If this was asked every single time, then yes, it wouldn't be acceptable. If you can't get the pop up to disappear, I think the best course of action is to contact the developer and let him know about the bug."

I answered no twice and it hasn't asked again. It's probably just a bug.

Menu Editor

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Latest version causes missing names beside icons for Downthemall, and other add-ons to lose settings. FF still indicates not compatible with 3.5, regardless of what is claimed. No support in author's forum, just users talking to users.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.6). 

HappyChecker

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Tried it all this week,never indicated a happy hour. Maybe they don't have them any more. Uninstalled it.

CS Lite

Needs documentation Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works about as well as CookieSafe did, but like CS, it needs more (any) documentation for the many options. Vague options like "Clear cookies on browser exit" (Clear all cookies? Leave those from exception sites?) and "Clear exceptions on browser exit" (Clear the exception entries? or their cookies?) needs explaining.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1).
