My Reviews

PageZipper

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works great with most of the sites I regularly visit - Thanks! And thanks to eleman for his review on October 1, 2010 where he explained how to fix the problem with the navigation bar changing size. I'd give this extension 5 stars if not for this problem.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6.2.1-signed.1-signed). 

SQLite Optimizer

Wow! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

My Firefox had gotten to where it would freeze and pause frequently for up to 1 minute at the time when loading web pages. After days of looking, found info that suggested it could be the places.sqlite file. Downloaded an sqlite browser and reindexed, and my places.sqlite file decreased from 35Mb to 31Mb, which seemed to help a little for a few days, then it started getting bad again. Then I found this extension and installed it, and selected "reindex now." (Reindex and Vacuum selected). My places.sqlite file dropped from 31Mb to 800Kb. Everything is still there that should be and now my Firefox flies with no more freezes! Thanks for a great extension!

YesScript

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I say "YES" to YesScript! Was looking for a way to keep Yahoo News from stealing focus and putting my cursor in the news search box everytime I clicked on a link. I couldn't scroll the page using the BackToTop extension without clicking on the page first. Dozens of times a day. Also, if I went back a page it wouldn't go to where I had left off - it would jump to the top because the cursor was in the search box.Tried NoScript but soon tired of having to set up a whitelist for every site I wanted Java on when there was only one I needed to block it on. Then found YesScript and it is just what I needed. It makes it so easy to blacklist a site that is giving trouble, and unblacklist it with a click if you need to run java on that site sometimes. Found other sites that load much faster without Java and have blacklisted them to. Super simple extension to set up Java blacklists!!

MileWideBack

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Just installed in 3.5b4 with no problems! Great to have it back! This is the one extension I miss the most when I use other browsers.

MileWideBack

Add Scroll? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

With Milewideback, my cursor stays on the left edge a lot. I love it! But I do have to move the cursor off the left edge to scroll, whether I use the scrollbar or "grab and drag" or the mousewheel. What I think would be a neat addition to Milewideback would be to scroll the page up and down if you drag the mouse up or down while on the left edge. To scroll the page just like you were on the scrollbar, but without having to push any buttons or move away from the left edge. I wish I knew how to write an extension to do this, or add it to Milewideback. Anyone interested in trying this??
