My Reviews

Three Finger Swipe

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Installed both this and Quick Gestures, as Three Finger Swipe is more intuitive, but Quick Gestures has more assignable functions to choose from. Ultimately, I wish both of these were more integrated. This hasn't been updated since 2013 - I'm not holding my breath. With 2-3 different kinds of gestures, we'll see how confused I get, lol.

Quick Gestures

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Installed both this and Three Finger Swipe, as Three Finger Swipe is more intuitive, but Quick Gestures has more functions. Wish this had more options in terms of movement, like being able to move diagonally (to make arrows). Also sucks that Undo Close Tab seems to be broken, as this was one of the main functions I would have used. Also wish Switch to Desktop Site was one of the options. Also, it would be nice to not have the big yellow "Gesture Cancelled" message flash at the top of the screen when we're just scrolling. We'll know it's been cancelled when nothing happens. That bright yellow banner is somewhat distracting and unnecessary. Ultimately, I wish both of these add-ons were more integrated. This hasn't been updated since 2013, though, so I'm not holding my breath. With 2-3 different sets of gestures, we'll see how confused I get, lol.

LastPass Password Manager

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

OMG, how did I not know there was a downgrade to the 2.0 interface?!!! I've been struggling with the sluggishness and clunkiness of 3.0 forever! Startup will probably still be slow due to the sheer number of accounts I have, but form fill is a breeze again! Thank you, LastPass, for listening and giving us the option!!!! (Most extensions and programs don't.)

Change 3.0 to 2.0 interface: https://lastpass.com/change_ver.php

Load Tabs Progressively

The Answer to My Prayers!!! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

As a power user with 50 tabs open on a tiny netbook with 1 GB RAM and 1 GHz CPU on a regular basis, this is a godsend! For the simplicity of what it does, I don't know why this isn't built into Firefox.

This worked on Pale Moon 24.0.2, with compatibility workarounds (a clean, performance-focused version of Firefox). You can use checkCompatibility or Configuration Mania (easy setting under Add-On tab) extensions to bypass the compatibility check.

I wish it had a few more options, though, like auto-load first page in background, load second page when click on first one, show unloaded tabs with page titles, ability to change unloaded tab transparency, etc.

Awesome Screenshot Plus - Capture, Annotate & More

Adware Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Seems to be an excuse to shove AD links into the options. Disabling ads in options does nothing. Says it does region select but doesn't. What 2-3 basic functions it does, other extensions do just as well or better, w/o subjecting to advertising, and then this one has the audacity on extension page to ask for donations!

TabGroups Manager

Causes Bug w/ Tab Mix Plus Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I can't comment much on the functionality of TGM too much, as I only used it a couple times before deciding that simply bookmarking tab groups before I closed Firefox as I used to gave me more peace of mind than trusting an extension to save them for me. However, I did notice that TGM caused a quirk w/ Tab Mix Plus: when I used the keyboard shortcuts to switch switch tabs, it made the popup list that I used to easily navigate between tabs to disappear. When I disabled TGM, it stopped. Not a huge deal, but just to let people know if you're using Tab Mix Plus.

PhotoJacker: Photo Album Downloader for Facebook

Temp Fix to Download Pics to Diff Folders Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Found temporary fix, until the developer adds a "Save Album As" dialog box. In Firefox Options, change your Downloads Directory to "Always ask me where to save files." Then, when you click "Download Album w/ FacePAD", it will ask you where to save the 1st pic. Right click in the dialog box & create a folder right then & there, then hit save. For each pic after that, you'll have to keep hitting save (annoying if you've got hundreds, & it's no longer an automatic process) but it's better than trying to sort out hundreds of photos later, esp if you accidentally downloaded multiple albums to the same folder by default. =P

Video DownloadHelper

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I installed this a few months ago. I downloaded it on the basis of the positive reviews on this site. It didn't disappoint. It gets all of the media I've thrown at it, and I like that it downloads lots of different media from lots of different sites, not just videos and YouTube. I installed it for my dad, and he uses it all the time now, too.
