Default start after install Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Installed and restarted to find it already had deleted 2 items and no description of what exactly was deleted.... this strikes me as non-user friendly. It appears the default settings assume that you want to lose your ability to recover if the default settings find anything.

I would prefer an alternate method that scans, presents items and lets you choose the items to deleted. Frankly there is no possibility to recover unless you have a directory backup. Other than that it seems to address the flashcookie tracking loophole as intended.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.23). 

Kde4 + Firefox3

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

My previous comment about updating obviously fell on deaf ears. The icons changed in this add-on with any user notification. Sorry, your creative skills are obvious, but your expertise at administering a secure website is not. I use Firefox because it is a secure platform and using this add-on creates an unreliable security risk. It's gone.

Kde4 + Firefox3

Very nice fit for kde4 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Vast improvement in cosmetics vs. default Firefox theme, nicely done. My only quibble is that IF it has autoupdates (and I haven't checked it), those updates should come thru mozilla's normal updating method. "Phoning home" is not going to be acceptable for me and probably a lot of others. Other than that, great work!

Minimap Sidebar

Privacy Policy Rated 4 out of 5 stars

it appears that the functionality of this extension (which i admire a great deal) depends on the minimap server. it is possible to find the privacy policy at google, yahoo, etc.... but there is no statement of what data is retained/used/shared by the server that minimap uses.

a brief statement about FireBeagle is all that i can find concerning usage.

this issue should be addressed.
