Random Agent Spoofer

Good if always enabled. Otherwise worse than manual spoofing. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Dear dillbyrne:

Your add-on is amazing. But as I've mentioned before, using it is a mixed bag experience if you need to disable it from time to time. Why?
Because when it's disabled it stills reverts all settings it spoofs to their default / 'factory' settings instead of their real prior values.
So I may have disabled webgl, local dom storage and other settings manually - I only need to enable and disable your add-on once and I'm less protected/more visible than I was without your add-on!!! That's why inexperienced users may even be better off not using your add-on and setting some important values manually that will stick.

I know it may not be trivial but I hope you will fix this very soon and make RAS remember user settings from before it was enabled and then restore those on being disabling. And while a whitelist would be nice it would be no solution to problem no. 1, but it'd certainly provide a bit more comfort.
Thank you.

FavIcon Reloader

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Nice idea. It's not working for me though (FF 31). Says it didn't find any bookmarks. But still, a nice idea.

Random Agent Spoofer

Mozilla.org version still at 0.8.2 - no further updates here? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Have you stopped submitting stable github versions to Mozilla? It's still at 0.8.2. If you don't intend to update the "official" version anymore, you may want to make people aware of that, esp. those who prefer add-ons that have been screened by the Mozilla team. Personally, I don't care, I'd just like to know if it makes any sense at all to wait for updates on this channel.

Sorry to hear the whitelisting didn't work out, had really looked forward to this.
And what about resetting settings to their original settings instead of default settings after disabling RAS? Has that been fixed?
Or adding / creating custom profiles of your own?
Thanks for your good work.

Open With

Browser icons in submenu now?!? Why? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Used to be great. One click on the Safari or Chrome icon and that's it. Now in FF29 (with v5.5.2) the Safari and Chrome icons are placed in a submenu?!? That's 2 clicks now and very unnecessary.

I hope you'll bring back one click icons for the FF toolbar.

Random Agent Spoofer

Great. Almost perfect. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great tool. All praise deserved.

I really like the Extra Privacy Options BUT I think there's a little (but annoying) bug:

when you disable spoofing, this add-on will reset all settings listed under Extra-Privacy Options to some default value (not the one you had before) **EVEN** if you didn't use/check any of the options at all.
In other words: this add-on should not touch my settings (reset them to some default value) unless I told it to change them before. And then it should change them back to the values I used before, not some default value. So if I don't use any of the Extra Privacy Options, none of those settings should be changed.

And one small request: I wish I could add my own User Agent Configuration to the list (custom). Sometimes I'd like to make a small change to the ones offered in the list.

Nevermind the bug, I like this add-on and recommend it!

Cookie Monster

Not working on my non-English language system Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This addon has a problem:

On non-English setups, some database file or so gets corrupted after a while.

Result: Web sites you gave temporary permission to set cookies will still have that permission even after restarting your browser. That kind of defeats the purpose of this add-on, no?
You could just as well give them permanent permission to set cookies in the first place. The effect is the same as having temporary permission forever across restarts and reboots.

The developer has known about this bug for a year or so. Unfortunately, he hasn't had the time yet to fix this. I'm not sure this add-on is still under active development.

The only workaround for now is to flush all your permissions on exiting Firefox. But that also deletes the permanent ones you wanted to keep. These you'll have to reallow every time you visit the sites, again. And in the long run, this get very tiring. Zero comfort.

I dearly hope this gets fixed eventually. I don't expect it to though. Too bad. I liked this add-on a lot when it worked.

User-Agent JS Fixer

Not convinced so far Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Looking to fake your browser user agent? This add-on is contributing the javascript part missing in other user-agent related add-ons.

THE BIGGEST PROBLEM:

Any website where you enable javascript can see right through your fake because this add-on does not cover the navigator.oscpu part of the user agent.

So whatever OS you set in your user agent, the navigator.oscpu call will still detect your real OS (unless of course you change it manually in about:config).

And there you are... easier to identify than people with no fake at all.

I suggest the developer fix this pretty fast.
