My Reviews

Cutyfox URL Shortener (bit.ly, is.gd, goo.gl)

Was good, until it stopped working Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Now I am using the addon "Shortly URL Shortener". That works.

Linky

Please fix! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Parts of this great addon stopped working in FF 44.

TotalSpoof

A sham Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I thought this was a good addon - until I tested it with the tool panopticlick.eff.org
According to this (eff=trustworthy) test, only one in 1151 browsers have got this user agent. This is no good tracking protection.

If you set the agent to "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:38.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/38.0", it's one in 135 browsers!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.13). 

CLiCk, Speak.js

Not suitable for daily use Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Only for English texts. But even in English, I can hardly understand a word.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.6.24.1-signed.1-signed). 

Flash Video Downloader - YouTube HD Download [4K]

Doesn't work any more Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Doesn't work any more

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (8.2.1). 

Random Agent Spoofer

Nicht ganz perfekt Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Leider hält das Addon nicht ganz, was es verspricht.

Probleme macht hauptsächlich die Zusammenstellung der User Agents. Obwohl ich "Random (Desktop)" eingestellt habe, laden plötzlich viele Webseiten die minimalistischen Mobilversionen.

Sinnlos ist auch die Change-Einstellung "every request", die nicht pro explizitem Seitenaufruf einen neuen Agent lädt, sondern pro HTTP-Request, was z.B. bei der Yahoo-Startseite zur Folge hat, dass schätzungsweise 50 Agent-Changed-Benachrichtigungen den kompletten Bildschirm füllen.

Ein weiteres Problem tritt je nach gerade eingestelltem User Agent auf: manchmal fehlen bestimmte Funktionalitäten, wie der Vollbildmodus bei YouTube-Videos.

ich würde sagen: hinter dem Addon steckt eine gute und sinnvolle Idee, aber leider ist deren Umsetzung wenig praxistauglich.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.5.2). 

Screengrab (fix version)

The very best screenshot addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Screengrab is easy to use and has got all features you really need. It's sufficiently configurable and not too complicated.

The only problem, I noticed, is that the hotkeys only work in the first browser window.

Edit: The addon frequently "forgets" the image format setting.

Edit 2: I analysed the image issue. Each time, you change any setting (apart from image format), the image format is being reset to PNG. Workaround: After each change of settings, explicitly adjust your desired image format.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.98.08c). 

Distill Web Monitor (formerly AlertBox)

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Waht they don't tell you before install: If you want to receive e-mail alerts, you need to have an accout at distill.io. If I wanted such an account, I wouldn't need this add-on.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.1.1-signed). 

Save Image in Folder

Thanks @ Andreas Berger for the workaround!!

Video DownloadHelper

Good before FF 36.0 Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Unfortunately, due to FF 36.0 update, many add-ons are now out of order. What did the Firefox team do?!

Update:
Installed the update, recommended by "Smiling Fox". Download works again, but with new GUI and bypassing the download manager, which takes some getting used to...

Update 2:
Now, Downloadhelper puts large QR code images on the left top of the most videos. WTF is this?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.9.24.1-signed). 

BatchDownload

RSS Icon

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great addon. I really missed this rss tool, mysterious why FF droped it.

Aviary Screen Capture & Quick Launch (Talon)

didn't work as expected Rated 1 out of 5 stars

doesn't work for larger web sites

gtranslate

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Sorry - it's not the tool I was looking for: comprehensive with intuitive use

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7). 

Bookmarker - the universal sidebar for social bookmarking networks

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I thought, I could configure new sites, but it is only possible by creating an alltagz account. This is not what it should be!

Save File to

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The folders management is great - much smarter and more flexible than in "Save Image in Folder". What I am missing is 1) the double click feature and 2) the status bar notification.

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

Save Image in Folder

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very useful & intelligent tool, thanks! I hope, version 3.5 will come soon (here!).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.7). 

SearchStatus

Great tool Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great tool.

I'm only missing support for IDN sites. For example on my site http://www.xn--bcher-suchen-dlb.de SearchStatus doesn't work.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.29).
