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

Latency Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Uninstalled my old X-Notifier by accident, and couldn't get it back since there are no updates, and it won't reinstall from file. This Lite version is fine with me, though. I don't need pop-up nags that clutter my screen with previews of what's inside my mailbox. I just need a discreet notification, which is exactly what this add-on does. The only quibble is that the notification (=the number on the toolbar icon) doesn't go away instantly as soon as I look into my mailbox. More often than not, it is still there after I checked out. This creates confusion and undermines the functionality. It would be great to see this problem addressed, i.e. corrected.

samfind Bookmarks Bar

Good, except not Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I used to like this, but it has an unaddressed bug, which renders it useless in the long run. "Icon and Text on hover" for the websites DOES NOT WORK. 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, or to get advice from the addon's maker. Going on with icons only is increasingly confusing as their numbers grow by the day. This way the basic functionality of the addon -- that of offering quick orientation -- is lost, and its very use becomes pointless.

Stopped working Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I was very happy with this, but it stopped working after FF15. It's a mystery why it is still featured, while other add-ons become unavailable after one missed FF upgrade.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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?


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.

Yoono: Twitter Facebook LinkedIn YouTube

Intrusive and stiff Rated 2 out of 5 stars

On the brink of having too many functions, Yoono 5.2 feels stingy and downright unfriendly in the customization area. I can't begin to tell how the five available skins annoy me. They make the browser look incoherent and contrast unpleasantly with most sites. I just don't want an ominous patch of flashy cartoon colors for my sidebar, nor a pitch black one, I would prefer the early versions' discreet presence. Or rather, the option to handle the colors myself.
The other thing that annoys me is the unremovable no-name box right under the user strip. It lists the same links as the Discoveries widget, only fewer of them. As I need Yoono for the very functionality of the link recommendations, now I'm stuck with a permanent sight of space-wasting redundancy. Theoretically I ought to love Yoono. Actually, I'm going to get rid of it a soon as I find something else that does the job.

P.S. -- And now with integrated ads. Insert cursing here.
