My Reviews

Thesaurus - Reference.com

Still seems to point to <thesaurus.reference.com> Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It needs to point to <thesaurus.com> I installed this on a default FF52 profile and it pointed to the defunct address. I was able to work around by changing all references to <thesaurus.reference.com> to <thesaurus.com> in the old XML file: "thesauruscom.xml" (still available, google it). I then used the "XML Search Engines Exporter/Importer" addon to import the XML file to the search.json.mozlz4 file. Works like a charm. If it gets updated I will change the 3-star to a 5-star.

Conflicting reports of EHH compatibility with e10s Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I am building a new FF profile with e10s enabled, and Add-on Compatibility Reporter reports EHH as "Not compatible with multiprocess", but about:support reports "Multiprocess Windows 1/1 (Enabled by user)", Task Manager shows two firefox processes running and EHH is doing its job. I just installed it and imported my settings from the original profile, and so far so good. I hope this continues as I consider EHH to be an essential addon. This is with FF51 running on XP SP3 with the POSready registry hack that allows XP to continue to receive security updates.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.10).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

NoUn Buttons: Unmerge Back & Forward Buttons/Menus

Just installed this addon. It does what it claims to do. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

... but the forward button looks weird, very tall and vertically squished-looking compared to back button, which causes it to vertically expand the toolbar on which it is installed.

ReminderFox

New problems for me with latest update Rated 4 out of 5 stars

While the latest update solved the problem of not being able to rearrange tabs, in seems to have some new bugs and disimprovements:

1. One must now click on the little X in the upper right corner of the slider to close it. Before, clicking anywhere on the slider would close it.

2. Why the delay and slow fade-out after clicking the X for the slider to disappear? This is annoying if the slider is obscuring something on the page that one is looking at.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.5.5). 

RAMBack

Does absolutely nothing Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It does not force FF to release memory when tabs are closed. Documentation on its use is non-existent. No mention of the "Clear Cache" option installed in the Tools drop-down menu, which does nothing more than the "Minimize memory usage" button in about:memory. A totally useless addon.

YouTube Plus

Can't get "frame by frame" to work Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Developer responded to my "frame by frame" problem and explained how to make it work. I have therefore changed my rating to 5*

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.2).

Password Exporter

Used this addon to transfer passwords from FF28 profile to FF34 profile Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Painless and faultless. FF28 uses a different method of storing passwords than later versions, so it's not just a simple matter of transferring a couple of files. Googled for a solution and found this. Works great!

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

Element Hiding Helper for Adblock Plus

Best Addon ever! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Eliminates 99.9% of the annoyance on websites that I use frequently. Increases the available real estate on a site by eliminating useless banners. I would suggest a switch that if checked reloads a page when selecting "Disable on this page only"

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.3.1-signed). 

Memory Fox

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Seems to work as advertised. I thought it was not working but then I realized that I had to "activate" it after I installed it. After activation, FF memory use went from over 800,000 down to about 120,000 and currently under 72,000

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (7.4.1-signed).
