My Reviews

Location Bar Enhancer

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I loved this extension before it stopped working. Now, it leaves my address bar empty. I'm running Firefox 38.1 with a darkly-colored theme (NASA Night Launch 0.6.20150510).

Add to Search Bar

Very useful; one minor complaint Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This app is extremely useful for sites that you frequently search. My only complaint is that when you add the new website search to the search bar, it becomes the default search for your next search. Just because I want to add it as an option for searching, doesn't mean I want it to become my preferred search engine.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.5.1-signed). 

Personal Menu (Personal Firefox Button)

Loved it back then, irrelevant now Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This was a great app in the good old days of Firefox. Now that the Firefox button is removed altogether, I really don't need it any more. 4 stars for nostalgia!

flickr original

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Used to work well, but now it doesn't work at all. Bummer. 2 stars based on the past.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great tool. Only wish it had some options to change the pop-up appearance and size.

PDF Download

Not working with FF 19 Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I've loved this add-on, but it hasn't been working correctly with the newer updates of Firefox and Acrobat. Nothing happens when I click download. When I click open, it opens in the wrong viewer.

X-notifier lite (for Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo)

Update opens external links in 2 tabs Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Nice add-on. Latest update created a quirk where every time I clicked on an external weblink (from any page on the internet), the link would open in two tabs. Disabling X Notifier stopped the problem.

Menu Editor

Very nice, but tiny window Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I absolutely love how this extension gives me the power to control what appears in my context menu (right-click menu).

However, it is annoying how you have to do everything in such a tiny window. Dragging and dropping takes forever while the panel scrolls up. Can you add the ability for the user to change the size of option windows?

PDF Download

Only okay Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I've used this add-on for over a year. The function providing a dialogue when clicking on a PDF online is very nice. This function merits 3 stars. However, the function for saving a website as a PDF has never worked for me. It merely takes you to a new tab for with a status bar saying it will take a minute. I have sat on that page many times, once for well over half an hour, and I have NEVER gotten it to work.

PDF Download

PDF download good; Web to PDF bad Rated 2 out of 5 stars

The download functions are great. I like the option of where to download.But the Web to PDF functionality has never worked for me. I click on the button and get sent to a site with a message to "Please wait... PDF Download is busy converting your Web Page to PDF. This may take a couple of minutes."Then I wait and wait and wait. I have waited up to 20 minutes before. I have never gotten further than that. I recommend "Save as PDF" even though it inserts self promotion footer.

Tab Mix Plus

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love Tab Mix Plus - thanks for your work.

I have one suggestion: Add a toolbar button that automatically opens the Tam Mix Plus Options Menu. I don't like having to go to my regular options (or add ons) to then get to Tab Mix Plus.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Once I resolved the problem with getting this installed, I found that it is THE BEST resizer add-on out there (and I have tried a bunch). I like the quick buttons that position the window to take the left half or right half of the screen.

The only problem... It needs to be updated for Mozilla 3.6.

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This sounds like a great add-on. I was looking for something that would allow me to resize the firefox window to be half of my screen and positioned on the right side or left side. From the notes it appears that this will do that... at least in theory.

Unfortunately, when I try to install it, I get an error from Firefox that prohibits installation. Here is what the error says.
Firefox could not install the file at

because: Not a valid install package

Would love to try it when you fix the installation file.

Problems with Isolate Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This seems pretty cool. But I am having problems with isolate. When I hit 'i', nothing happens.
