Terms of Service; Didn’t Read

missing TOS, does not go away on ctrl-tab, otherwise very good :) Rated 4 out of 5 stars

If you click it and then switch tabs with ctrl-tab, it still shows. It should go away on any tab switches.

Also, it doesn't say how it gets TOS;DR info. Does it fetch it every time I visit site.com, or does it only update TOS info when the extension itself is updated? Basically, this extension needs a TOS.

AccuWeather

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

ok.. should notice that my area is non-fahrenheit.

Pulse

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

meter1060: click the tiny icon in the upper right (but yes, it should show when you start!). Also, adding new sources doesn't work on my phone.

BlickAmMozilla

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

if only there were no sound.. o/w great game!

Muter

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Firefox wouldn't start after installing this, had to kill and start in safe-mode to remove it.

It's sad, because FF really needs a way to mute sounds.

pwgen - Password Generator

works, but could be better Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I really don't get the point of "master password", that needs to be explained somewhere. Also, both "master" and "history" should not be in the menu if they're not checked in options.

One feature that would be cool is to, in the menu, have some "presets", e.g. "4-digit pin", "8 chars, all types", "8 chars, alphanumeric", "16 chars, all type". Ideally, a 32 char all types pass would work on all sites, but until then, some presets would be good!

SamePlace Instant Messenger

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

to those complaining about it not working in newest Thunderbird: TB now comes with instant messsaging built-in :)

commandrun

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Interesting, but I would find it more useful to have an extension that defines a button that I can drag to the extension bar, and then I could define a command that is run on clicking that button.

hbengali: yes, but sometimes you want to grab document location without having to copy-paste (e.g. starting up Minitube with the current Youtube URL)

Oxygen KDE

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

a must-have for any KDE user =D

CookieSwap

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

nynorskvg

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Kunne gjerne vist originalsida medan omsetjinga lastar, sidan det av og til tek litt tid... men elles kjempefin utviding :-)

FlashVideoReplacer

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works wonderfully =D

Note: I have mediaplayerconnectivity running too, and when it saw these nice plain movie streams, it tried taking over, with mixed results. So I had to go into mediaplayerconnectivity settings, Configuration Page 2 and add this to the Whitelist:

*youtube.com*;*vimeo.com*;*blip.tv*

QuickProxy

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Wonderful, should be a part of firefox proper.

LyZ

Sorely needed Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's too bad there is no official LyX-plugin for Zotero (I would have preferred inserting references the same way I do in OpenOffice), but as far as a Firefox extension goes, this is about as good as it gets. My only request is a "zotero" key format that only uses the part after the _ (underscore) -- the item ID -- so that it's possible to convert OpenOffice-documents to LaTeX and reuse the citations in the odt in LyX.

Firemacs

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I couldn't find any way to get in touch with Kazu Yamamoto so I'm posting my bug report here.

I cannot get this to work at all on my mac. There is simply no change in the keybindings. Have any other mac users had any luck?

On Fedora 10 it seemed to work fine, though, very useful for when conkeror fails.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.7). 

LoL

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

how do you unset a key in the settings? I don't want a magic key at all, just a toggle...

Also, a feature request: conkeror and vimperator let you type in some characters while the hints are showing, to narrow down the search, would be really cool if LoL could do that too..

other than that, great extension =D

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3). 

ImTranslator - Google Translator, Dictionary, TTS

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Hmm. Rather messy UI. I like the World Wide Lexicon ( https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/13897 ) better since it doesn't have ads, and also includes the possibility to correct translations on-the-fly so that you improve the page for the next person coming along.

@FFU: it actually uses Google Translate, but additionally PROMT (The World Wide Lexicon toolbar uses Google Translate, Apertium and Moses; and will be using Babelfish too once their API is out – in addition to human post-edited translations)

Der Mundo

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I give it a 5 because it looks so promising! I like the combination of both manual, closed, and free/open source translators.

It's also fantastically easy to add translations :-) (But perhaps there should be some notice of/option for what licence the translation has? I'd like my own to be CC-BY-SA.)

One quibble: You list "Norwegian", but this is actually two written languages:
"Norwegian Bokmål" (what Google Translate calls "Norwegian")
"Norwegian Nynorsk". Apertium is able to translate between these two.
