Gmail Notifier (restartless)

New version fixes freezing problem Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Update: new version (0.5.2.1) fixes the previously mentioned "freezing when going to Options" problem

all is good now. 5 star addon.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.1).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Adblock Plus

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

By far, the best (and arguably, the *original*) Ad Blocking extension for Firefox. It's clear that the author of ABP is also one of most highly skilled Firefox add-on programmers, which is another reason to stick with ABP rather than move to that rip-off ABE (which is obviously an emotional over-reaction to the concept of "opt-in by default" - look at all the ABE fanboy-trolls posting 1 star reviews on this page!).

Also, AdBlockPlus is the single biggest reason to stick with Firefox rather than move to that "other" browser beginning with the letter C.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.6.7).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Gmail Notifier (restartless)

Excellent extension Rated 5 out of 5 stars

UPDATE: version 0.5.2.1 fixes the problem described below. so ignore anything negative i've written below, that doesn't apply to v0.5.2.1.

***

This is a 5-star extension and I don't intend to use this review to penalize the extension author for a recent bug. My rating reflects that.

However... there IS a major bug, evident in Firefox v35.0 used with extension version 0.5.1. Your browser will HANG, causing you to lose everything in all of your windows and tabs, if you click either the "MORE" hyperlink or the "OPTIONS" button for this add-on, in the Add-Ons screen.

Since I have already lost data as a result of this major bug, I'm posting this as a review as a warning to others.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.1). 

Bluhell Firewall

Faster than ABP, but breaks some sites Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It's a nice add-on, faster than ABP and uses much less memory (so safe to use on your phone/tablet) BUT it breaks www.thestar.com which is the largest/most-widely-read newspaper in Canada so I can't keep it enabled all the time. I would prefer to put this as a "bug report" but there is no such section on your add-on page.
(in case you are wondering the issue is that no images on thestar.com will load, if BluHell is enabled. Tested with clean profile on BluHell 2.5 / Fx 34)

EDIT: I agree that previous rating was not fair, so here is my "real" rating. However, I would appreciate if you could investigate the issue and see how it could be resolved. I would point out that ABP with it's default subscription never has issue with that website. Thanks.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.5.0). 

Google search link fix

Latest version is FINE! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Amending my review because the current version of Google search link fix (1.4.8) is totally GREAT. Yes, the previous versions may have had some issues but almost everything's been resolved in the current version. Get it!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4.5). 

Keylogger Pro - New!

Highly unsafe & MALWARE!! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Do not install this add-on. It's capturing all your keyboard strokes and uploading it to a remote server, no doubt controlled by the add-on author... Essentially a form of spyware/browser hijacking/mal-ware etc. I repeat: This is a highly suspicious MALWARE-LIKE add-on! And many of the reviews below are obviously posted by the author himself!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.6).

By far, the best (and arguably, the *original*) Ad Blocking extension for Firefox. It's clear that the author of ABP is also one of most highly skilled Firefox add-on programmers, which is another reason to stick with ABP rather than move to ABE (which, quite frankly, seems like an emotional over-reaction to the concept of "opt-in by default").

Autofill

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

An excellent add-on which serves the void between "save passwords" and "save form fields". There are apparently a number of places on the web where a field's contents won't be saved by EITHER of those two built-in functions in Firefox - hence Autofill to the rescue!

If there's a certain web page you frequently use which always requires you to fill out certain form fields (which aren't picked up by Firefox) then this add-on is for you. Recommended!

IE Tab

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Although it's a fairly stable plugin, when tabs are opened within Firefox, "save passwords" do not work. This applies if the passwords for that site are saved normally within IE or Firefox! Thus forcing me to manually open the site in question within IE, in order to use the Save Password feature.

Open in IE

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Unfortunately, as of Firefox 26 the "domain list" feature no longer works. Any site you put in the domain list will simply be loaded in Firefox normally. You need to right-click link, "Open in IE", to open it in IE (just like the previous versions).
