Works great - plz remove forced icon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works great and is very small.

Please remove the forced icon or make it optional.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.7.2). 

Country Flag & Website Info - Full IP Info

almost perfect... Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This addon is much smaller than similar extensions. That's a huge plus. The drop-down information is full and helpful. However, the flags are square, regardless of the actual flag shape. The overwhelming majority of national flags are horizontal rectangles. Please fix the appearance.
Also, the IP address overlay should be optional.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2). 

Chrome Store Foxified

works but way too large Rated 4 out of 5 stars

When you find a Chrome extension which works, this is fantastic. Not so great? 87% of this add-on is fonts...5 megabytes of overhead...why?

CanvasBlocker

white list? Really? WHERE?!?! Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Description claims there is a whitelist option but...there is no visible way to see, let alone edit, such a list.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.3c). 

View Source

Have used for years - plz make WE version! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've used "View Source", almost daily, for many, many years. It's fantastic. Hopefully, someone will create a WE version...

Scroll Up Folder

almost there... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Is it possible to have a toolbar button so the icon is not in the url field?

Tab Mix Plus

It's a LEGACY build, got it?!?! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Anonymous user 3d2551 and all others who don't pay attention: notice there is no green label which says this is compatible with FF57+

Code Injector

why? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

What's the point of this? It's 5 times larger than Greasemonkey and 70% larger than TamperMonkey.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.1). 

InfoWeather

Almost perfect Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I've used Forecastfox for years. Am now using InfoWeather because the pop-up window is much better. Here are a few requests:
1) Please add option for wider icon so it can show temperature and condition (sun, rain, storm, etc.).
1.1) If possible, please make even wider to show forecast, similar to older Forecastfox.
2) Please include support for default location and multiple stored locations.

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

Canvas Defender

Almost perfect Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I agree with suggestion to automatically create a new profile on each startup (each tab opening?)

Would REALLY like a way to disable the popup messages!!!

copyLinks

Fails on GitHub pages Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Copies only the link under the cursor when attempting to copy a selected set of links on GitHub pages.

CleanKinja

love it but would also like... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works great.
How about a way to block specific posters by name?

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

Live editor for CSS and LESS

installed without problem, works just fine Rated 5 out of 5 stars

EN-US Win8.1 x64 FF 54.0 x32, installed just fine. Works great.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.5.4). 

QR Coder

Must have ability to save QR as file Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Locally creating the QR is fantastic.
However, there is no way to save the QR image...

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.1). 

whitelist javascript websites

almost perfect Rated 4 out of 5 stars

"Whitelist javascript websites" is a near-perfect site-specific javascript blocker.

The largest problem is the icon does NOT indicate the current status. The icon indicates what the status would be IF you clicked on the icon.

What would be very helpful:

1) Switch incons; green checkmark should indicate javascript is allowed, Red radiation symbol should indicate javascipt is denied.

1.1) I'd change the icon to the JS shield in green, yellow, or grey.

2) Add a temporarily-enabled option (yellow) which reverts to the blocked if the url is no longer in the browsing history.

3) Add import/export list of whitelisted URLs from/to a text file.

4) Include wildcard support for URLs. If there is a description of the level to which whitelisting is allowed, I didn't see it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.0.3). 

Tampermonkey

Why so large compared to GreaseMonkey and Violent Monkey? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works? Yes.
Nice interface? Yes, especially sorting.
Why is Tampermonkey so large? It's almost 3 times larger than GreaseMonkey in Firefox and almost 4 times larger than Violent Monkey in Chrome.
I really like the userscript list but if that's the only real difference, it's not work 600k of code.
Please enlighten me.

ok, I see now. The size comes from the JavaScript editor and the UI. Would you consider splitting TamperMonkey into 2 versions; developer and run-only?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.3.5384). 

FfChrome

Great BUT picky!!! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I love having the short menu. HOWEVER, there one bug which is very annoying.
The pop-up menu frequently does NOT show those items which are checked in the user settings. Why? I don't know. This seems to be related to when add-ons were installed. Then again, maybe the method used to reference the add-ons by ffChrome is outdated and doesn't properly work with recent builds...

restartFox

Works great, plz add file menu icon Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works great in FF48. Please add icon to File Menu and make it and regular icon user-potional.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.5). 

Site Searcher

Almost perfect... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works great
suggested tweak: position cursor in search field when new window is opened.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.6). 

Youtube Checker

Great but needs some more functions Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Love this for seeing what is updated in channels I like. However, it would be much more useful with a few tweaks:
1) The list of subscriptions should be sortable, alphabetical sort would be helpful.
2) There should be a dismiss button so new videos can be removed from the list without opening them.
3) option for smaller thumbnail size would be nice.

How about an overlay icon to remove the item? That would be very obvious.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.0).
