Textarea Cache

So useful, but broken in Firefox 44> Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is just a must-have addon, it really saves headaches when the page for some reason reloads or the connection fails and all you have just written in a forum post or other text field suddenly disappears.

It hasn't been updated since 2014 and it has been broken for a while now (since Firefox 44 came out), I hope it gets fixed because it's certainly one of the many addons that makes Firefox worth using.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.3.2.1-signed). 

uMatrix

An ingeniuos extension and a great privacy tool Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I can do nothing but agree with some earlier reviews: this, just like uBlock Origin, it is indeed a revolutionary concept: it's kinda like having a firewall built into the browser.
It's like nothing seen before, the matrix makes blocking and unblocking stuff so much easier (once you understand the concept) than other extensions.
For someone who already has familiarity with adblocking and NoScript, this is taking things to the next level.
Well done.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.3.2). 

uBlock Origin

Absolutely great Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A tremendous extension, kinda different from anything seen before: not super easy, but as the author says it's not just an adblocker (as many people see it) but a wide-spectrum content blocker.

Not easy to figure out at first glance (more so in advanced mode) but highly effective, and based on solid principles as far as ads go: there is no such thing as "acceptable ads".

It works, and it can really clean up webpages whilst still allowing to see the actual content - and (more importantly) properly configured offers quite a lot of tracking/privacy protection.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5.5). 

Site Searcher

Absolutely essential, but (was) broken in Firefox 44 (fixed now, thank you) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Absolutely essential extension, as it makes searching within a website so much easier: but unfortunately broken in Firefox 44 beta, it doesn't even show up.

EDIT: swiftly fixed by the author, now it works again.
Thank you very much !

Tab Groups

Excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent extension, maybe even better than the original Panorama/Tab Candy concept that Mozilla left behind soon after launching it.
They clearly never believed in it and ended up removing it, which is a shame because it could have been a great concept.
I just hope that this nice replacement will survive the upcoming Firefox updates.

Add to Search Bar

Very useful (but broken in Firefox 44) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Yet another highly valuable extension broken by the latest Firefox 44 beta: and it's not redundant at all even with the new Firefox search function, because it can add custom searches that this new function can't .

Locationbar²

Excellent extension (but broken in Firefox 44) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Highly useful extension, makes navigating through domains much easier (and quicker) and greatly improves the functionality of the location bar.
It should be a native (built-in) Firefox feature, too bad that is now broken in Firefox 44.
Locationbar³ is a nice replacement (and it works in Firefox 44) but IMO still lacks some of the features of its predecessor.

Locationbar³

Very useful Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very useful extension, does *almost* everything locationbar² used to do, but still lacks some customizing option (domain color) that would make it even more useful.

Extension List Dumper 2

Very useful extension Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you so much for updating a very useful, almost mandatory extension for Firefox. Good job, it was much needed.

CS Lite Mod

Best cookie management extension Rated 5 out of 5 stars

5 stars even if it as of now it doesn't work with Firefox 42> , simply because it's the simplest and most effective cookie management extension that I've ever used.
I hope it gets updated soon.

keyword.URL Hack!

Must have addon,but breaks something in Firefox 34 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Absolutely a must-have addon to bring back the full functionality of the url bar-unfortunately it breaks something in the currently Nightly (Firefox 34.0a1) because the url bar dropdown menu now won't work with a single word,it will need at least two.

Classic Style for Favicons (discontinued)

Excellent extension Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Simple yet excellent extension that restores proper website favicons,fixing what Mozilla insists on changing for no reason.

CacheViewer2

It works! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Finally,cache viewer is working again:thank you so much for fixing this very useful addon.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5.1-signed.1-signed). 

Classic Bookmarks Button

Very useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Nice and useful addon that allows the user to see the bookmarks button at all times,even with the file menu toggled on (which IMHO had to be possible to begin with,why not leave that choice?)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.1-signed).

bug582139 (Allow full customize bookmarks button)

Excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Fixes another thing that wasn't broken to start with:why shouldn't I have my bookmarks button visible at all times,if that's what I want?

Note:as of now it doesn't work in Firefox 23,I hope it can be fixed.

keyword.URL Hack!

Mandatory addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars
