My Reviews

mFull: Full Screen Mode for Firefox

Nice but always forces the Menu Bar on Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This app provides true full screen with convenient options such as auto hide bars. HOWEVER it always forces the Menu Bar to show at every startup which is very annoying.

Column Reader

Great Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works very well. Pair this with a full screen add-on like mFull for true awesomeness. Thanks to Peter for making this available.

Full Screen for Firefox

True full screen -- most of the time Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I believe the developer is using a simple built-in function in Firefox, but has made it readily available by clicking an icon.

Would be great for reading except it doesn't work when Column Reader app has been applied. [Edit: I just tried mFull addon instead and it works in reader mode].

Also, implementing the suggested bug fix might allow annoying websites to go full screen independently. Anyway, to exit full screen, just press [ESC] or [F11].

2-Column Google Results

Great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you for sharing this great app. With widescreens this makes the search layout so much better.

EDIT: It now works on google.ca also! Yay. Thank you!

Good job!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.3.0). 

Integrated Inbox for Gmail and Google Apps

Not bad Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Contacts are loaded in html, so a step backwards if you want to integrate Contacts on the same page. Tasks however is well implemented with a nice layout.

For me Contacts is most important so this add-on is not for me. Also, all the advertising to upgrade gets a little annoying.

S3.Google Translator

Quick and easy pop-up translator Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A small translate icon appears whenever you highlight text. Very quick and easy. Another great feature is that it translates into up a pop-up bubble, instead of opening a completely new tab. This type of add-on has been done before but S3 has been maintained consistently up to now.

BRAVO OLEKSANDR.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.31). 

Mycroft Project

True awesomeness Rated 5 out of 5 stars

One of my few absolute must have add-ons. Huge database of user-written search plugins. If you want to create your own to share, you can on their website.

Don't want to write your own? Then get Add to Search Bar by Dr. Evil, my other essential search bar add-on. Brilliantly easy right-click-to-add.

BIG THANKS TO MYCROFT PROJECT.

Add to Search Bar

True awesomeness Rated 5 out of 5 stars

One of my few absolute must have add-ons. Brilliantly easy right-click-to-add. Some websites don't play nice, but nearly all do.

As for other search bar options, my other essential add-on is Mycroft Project. It has tonnes of search plugins that can be added to the search bar, many of which have been customised with specific search parameters.

BIG THANKS TO DR. EVIL

Quick Translator

the quickest Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Automatic translation button is brilliant. This is the quickest, easiest and least intrusive add-on I know of. Missed it terribly when it wasn't updated for newer versions of FF. Thanks to Igor for making it work again!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.1-signed).
