In a little more detail...

I've been pulled into writing Firefox extensions thanks to the SDK, and am now closely following where WebExtensions lead us. I try to help developers out on IRC, file and fix the occasional bug and in between write some of my own extensions you can see on here.

My Reviews

bitwarden - Free Password Manager

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.20.1). 

Streamlink Helper

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Decentraleyes

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.0). 

Overview

Handy Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Having an outline of long documents like specifications or manuals is certainly very useful. It is also a valuable tool to a web developer to see your heading structure.

It doesn't support the html5 section algorithm (yet?!), but the dev is very helpful, responds fast and seems to be interested in improving the extension further.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.0). 

Save-Data: on

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Bookmarks Organizer

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Sadly I haven't really been able to get much use from the add-on, as the broken bookmark checker always gets stuck on the last bookmark. From a glance at the console output it's possible that it could be due to a basic auth prompt, but I'm not sure and would happily help to find out.

Further in the duplicates and bookmarks with missing names I get bookmarks for URIs of the form "place:type=3sort=4", "place: folder=UNFILED_BOOKMARKS" or "place:transition=7&sort=4", which are probably from some mess up in my places db, though it's still weird that it would check items like the "Downloads", "Tags" or "History" category from places.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.6). 

watched.li improvements

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very simple change to the service, so it works pretty solidly.

It'd be nice if other actions on the episodes would be possible, like marking them as watched, and maybe even bulk actions, so you can search for multiple episodes at once or mark multiple as read.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0). 

Twitch Client ID Injector

Must have for developers using the Twitch API Rated 5 out of 5 stars

As a developer that recently looks at queries on the Twitch API this is a must-have! It makes it so much easier to check the response of a request, since you don't have to look for your client ID and worry about getting the wrong API version.

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

Hide Fedora

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Finally a way to see more relevant comments when linked to a video from reddit.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3). 

elementary Firefox

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Integrates Firefox even better into the elementary theme (especially the tab button. That green thing from the ff gnoem theme always bugged me).
However some icons (for example the history icon [namely the places/folder-recent icon, which is also the recent files icon]) are not related to what they are and have better equivalents within the elementary icon set.
The panel styles still don't fuly match the panel style from elementary, but it's a lot better than it was earlier when I last used this theme.
As soon as australis reaches the main version I'll probably disable this theme, or fork it on github (if I can find it) and make it a pure icon theme, so I get the australis tabs.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.7).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Feedly - Beyond Google Reader

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Clearly the feedreader of my choice. Also support for firefox has improved in the last time. Very excited for the future! :)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (14.0.482.1-signed.1-signed). 

Add to Wunderlist

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This integrates wunderlist perfectly into firefox. The extension is as beautiful designed as the apps!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.0). 

Current Pushlog

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Ich liebe diese kleine Erweiterung. Auch wenn ich nicht immer alle changesets durchschaue, gibt es mir eine Idee, was so neu oder besser ist.
Funktioniert seit dem Update mit Nightly wieder reibungslos. Vielen dank!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.1-signed.1-signed). 

elementary Firefox

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The must have theme for all elementary OS users. IT looks just perfect. I am not sure if I like, that it always shows the forward button, but I can live with it.
The sad thing: it breaks the notifications style. Notifications look really ugly and have a random size (based on the content). This happens, since ubuntu doesn't provide a libnotify implementation with feedback. I hope elementary OS will get a new default notification library which will support it, so firefox uses system notifications.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1). 

Tab Badge

Helpful for Twitter & co Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This extension helps perfectly if you use twitter and similar in background tabs. You instantly see when new tweets are ready to be read for you!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.10.1-signed). 

Aaapptabs

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on makes App Tabs to tabs containing an app. You shouldn't need the navigation of your browser in an app. Thank you!

LookOut

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Cool. Works perfect. All files attached can be opened without problem

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.11). 

Siphon - Add-on Synchronizer

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Good. But licensed addons, or system specific addons like cooliris you can't install from siphon.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.1). 

FoxTab

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Super addon!

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