My Reviews

samfind Bookmarks Bar

Very good, except one issue Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is a great add-on, which brings a whole new dimension of functionality to Firefox. Thanks!

One problem, though. When opting for "Icon & Text on hover" in Customization, the majority of the bookmarks gets stuck in the drop-down menu at the end of the toolbar, while the bar itself remains half-empty. I tried in vain to find a workaround to this problem, so an advice would be very welcome.

Bookmark Favicon Changer

Works fine again Rated 5 out of 5 stars

For a while, there were no updates for this important add-on, which provides the means to edit favicons on the Bookmars bar - a functionality that should come built into Firefox, imo.

It works fine now. You may have to check the add-on homepage to be able to download the latest update.

Stopped working Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I was very happy with this add-on, but it has completely stopped working. The sidebar won't show, no matter if I click the toolbar icon or the menu item. I use the latest FF. Can somebody tell me what to do to get it work again?

Download Flash and Video

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I installed this extension because I have to download lots of flash content. I like it very much, because it's so straightforward, but it also makes me quite desperate. I would like to be able to select and download several swf items simultaneously, because doing it one by one, with the menu popping up and down is way exhausting. Can somebody tell me, please, how can I achieve that?

Prostetnic highlighter

The best I found Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I needed a web highlighter, and realized that a suitable one is not so easy to find, with all the apparent wealth of web apps. I mean, one that (A) makes permanent highlights, which are there when you revisit a page, (B) doesn't require to sign up for an account, and (C) without a toolbar that adds clutter to the browser. Prostetnic highlighter seems to be the best compromise for the moment, although it's not entirely consistent. The 'Erase all highlights' command leaves some highlights unaffected for me. I'm grateful, but please take this further. Also, I would like to know where the highlighting data is saved.P.S.: Thanks for the update! Much smoother look and feel now. Mentioned inconsistency also gone!

Web Highlighter by Diigo

Doesn't work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

After installation there is a prompt to push the 'question mark' button, to allow saving the highlights, but that question mark is nowhere to be found.

Webmail Ad Blocker

Uninstalled Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I updated my Gmail to the new look (the 'Preview' theme) and, lo and behold, I ended with a big 'WebMail Ad Blocker' item in the menu bar, pushing for a donation. As there seemed to be no way to make it disappear, I uninstalled the addon. It might have been useful, but this was intrusion of the most unwelcome kind. I see no difference after uninstall.

Multirow Bookmarks Toolbar Plus

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Seems to be the same as the old version, I don't see any sponsored links.

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

Multirow Bookmarks Toolbar

Good, but... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

...update for FF5 is needed. Also, it would be nice to have an option for even distribution of the icons throughout all the rows.

Bookmarks Toolbar Button

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works OK in my FF4 without any tweaks.

iReader

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great, but please add option for font size change, and to disable the floating options bar.

Pocket

Great already, but Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I already love this extension to pieces, but I would love it even more if I had the option to simplify a webpage to text without sending it to the read list. This function would add more to the level of convenience this great addon already provides.

Feedly - Beyond Google Reader

More options, please! Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Feedly is nice, but I would need more customization options to make it work properly. Some functions are not thought-out enough. For example, I use more than one Google accounts, so when I save an article with the Mini, they don't always go to my registered Feedly account, but to the one automatically generated for the Google account I used last. Also, I can't see why there isn't a Close button with the articles, why only Hide. And if so, why not an Unhide one too, for the case of an article hidden by accident. And yes, seeing the same placeholder picture again and again is offputting.

Readable

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Original bookmarklet works nicer. This cuts off the title of the article that I want to read, and inserts unwanted "null" tags into the text. Also, getting back to the original state of the page should be easier, with clicking the icon again.

Favicon Picker 3

Update please Rated 5 out of 5 stars

After upgrading to FF4 all my custom Google-related favicons turned to the same ugly "g" I so much hate to see.
Save my soul with an update, pls.

Xmarks Sync

One more plea Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Please stay.

CoolPreviews

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Indispensable, but update is needed to work as smooth in Google Images as it used to.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0.1). 

Screengrab

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This add-on is very useful, but it would be so much better if I had the option to set it to "Save Selection" permanently. It's rather annoying to go through the menu every time I want to grab something from the screen.

Favicon Picker 3

Obsolete Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Any chance of an update for the 3.5.5 version?

QuickNote

Very useful but outdated Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It used to be a major commodity in my browser, has stopped working in Firefox 3.0.7. Please update.

P.S.- for everyone interested: after a google search I came across an extension called FoxNotes. It turned out to be a direct continuation of QuickNote, integrating into the browser the same way. It manages up to ten note-tabs, and has more sensible customization.
So the update exists, it only isn't publicized on this site - rather inexplicably.
