My Reviews

Tab Mix Plus

Looks like there are several side effects in FF 27.0 Beta Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Well, although I like TMP a lot, I have to ask, whether I am the only user recognizing many side effects to other AddOn's in FF 27.0 Beta since a few weeks. Even the Nightly 20.0 of FF seems to work with less errors than Beta... once again: Does this only affect me?
I already created a 'virgin' new profile more than a week before, but I still realize many problems...
The most obvious effect (because one can see it) is the loss of any custom made toolbar (I often make one in order to collect all Buttons of AddOn's) as soon as FF is restarted. A long time ago I can remember such side effects between TMP and Colorful Tabs... but now?
How about other users? But: Especially FF Beta's (27.0).

Snap Links Plus

Well, well, it gives no good reputation to promise... and forget these promises quickly Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Clint Priest, when I wrote a review in September suspecting SLP to be another dead AddOn, you gave a quick reply and this is what you answered:"It's alive and well, not much going on the old Google groups site because it generally just works. Issues should be posted to the issues page (which is now where the support link points to)."Well, it would have been much better to be quiet at that time, because I'm quite sure you already knew at that time, that you would cancel/stop SNP development. And BTW, even if you planned to make a longer rest in development, why did you not simply tell your folks to wait for a fixed amount of time?The way you deal with Snap Links Plus and the users you expect to use this AddOn doesn't create a good impression of your intentions, sorry to say this. And another time: For me Snap Links Plus is dead - period.Clint, I do/did never intend to insult persons nor do/did I want to discredit someones effort or work. I guess there are enough users who will surely understand that you will have to do more in your life than to work on AddOns for FF. It simply would be more honest to realize such a fact (the simple lack of time) and to tell it instead of promising things you hardly will be able to fulfill - for all those ones you address with your promises (even yourself, I hope you understand this wink!). Tell your users a time they have to wait to give them a timeline or simply tell them : "I stopped this project" (like you did in the last reply - thanks for it). Otherwise I suspect you to try to limit damage by promising "I will...".I understand very well your position to cease such a work... but as I told it: Keep on being earnest and honest.

Snap Links Plus

Again a dead AddOn?!?!? Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Well, it's a really good idea, but... FF 26.0 nightly does no longer work with it and when I looked on SLP's homepage as well on it's Support page ... I recognized nearly no life. So I assume there will be no update available. It would - nonetheless - be great to see a reaction... will there be one?@Clint Priest:Ok, let's see what will happen...
Edit:
Well, in the end it seems that I was right... and not even the developer knew, that he has lost interest in his product. In my eyes one should always have a clear imagination what to do and where to go. Targets change from time to time and we focus on other things... nothing unusual. But one should always have the honesty and sovereignty and stand to ones own decisions!

Voyage

No longer compatible with FF 23 beta and newer Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Voyage doesn't work on FF 23.0 Beta and on the latest 25.0 nightly.
Is this addon still supported/developed?

Snap Links Plus

Sometimes many links are 'forgotten' (not found) Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Well, the idea of SLP is quite good - no question. But there are enough situations and sites, where SLP oversees a lot of links. Perhaps it would help, if there would be a possibility to send the developer Links of sites where SLP fails and as well the links, which aren't recognized.
This happened on FF 22.0 Beta latest and Windows 7 64.

SiteDelta

incompatible with FF 20.0 Beta?!? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It looks like SiteDelta either is incompatible with FF 20.0 or there is a side effect.
Often (but not reproducible always) a right click in the side bar of SD opens the clicked site (independent of changes).
This also occurs, when more than one site is marked and right clicked (to choose 'check for changes').
Hmmm, no life on the homepage? Hopefully site delta is still alive..., Andreas Schierl?
If you can tell me something about this behavior, I'll change the rating. But in a time of more and more 'dying addon's' I use this method to 'mark' them as dead.

Internote

I like it very much, but... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

unluckily it is...1) no longer compatible with FF 20.X nightly (what was not my concern, but...)2) I got no reply to my mail to one of the developers in the mid of December 2012.I hope there will be somebody realizing, that Mozilla seemingly changed significant parts in FF's code, that at least on FF 20.x nightly causes Internote to crash.

Nonetheless a great work, which for sure many users will like to see in the future, too.

That's why... I don't want to forget: Happy new year!
And go on with such great work like Internote. :-D

CleanupTabs

Works great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I tested the latest version - it works without a problem. Thanks a lot, I'm really satisfied.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4). 

Multi Links

Outdated and incompatible at least for FF 6.0 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

A very interesting AddOn, which helped in some special situations really good.
Unfortunately it seems to be incompatible with newer versions of FF, on its own website one can see it as to be on version 3.0.0.17, though here there is only 3.0.0.16 available... and nobody seem to recognize it - is it dead?!?!?
That's a pity!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0.0.16). 

Internote

Now please... make it run on FF 6.0 :-D Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Now that FF5.0 ist automatically updated/upgraded to 6.0, Internote is no longer running (incompatible), so if possible please have a look on it to make it compatible with 6.0. My rating for Internote 3.0.1 is without a doubt 5 Stars for very good functionality and... it's a succesful further development of the 'original' last Internote (2.0).

WebNotes

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This AddOn is - as far as I can see - a well done piece of code and anything but 'annoying'. Indeed annoying are comments of people, who find an AddOn and seem to be entitled to demand for changing it.
There a.r.e already AddOn's with the functionality you ask for, Fur Q. So before you downgrade an AddOn, which is simply not the one you want/need, why don't you simply use one, which makes the job in the way you want? You know what? One * for lazy people!

To WebNotes: The tab-design is very helpful. Of course one functionality could help for the future. The last version(s) of Internote offered the possibility to use the notes not only for the exact URL. Have a look at it to see what I mean.
But nonetheless: Let it be what it already is, a tool for notes on websites.

AdRemind.Me

Why not creating something useful...? Rated 2 out of 5 stars

To be true: Advertisements need to be clicked to earn money with them. So it is anything but helpful to show ads for a site, but annoying to the person who still isn't interested in being disturbed by blinking (or even worse: Flash) Banners.

I have no problem with discrete, decent advertisement and - moreover - if the advertisement is correctly placed (that means it is related to a website's content!), I often click it, since I also often search for new sites.

But advertisement because of 'sympathy' to a website - independent of the manner of advertising - for me a categorical NO GO!

So this AddOn, sorry, is in my eyes simply a waste of time - for the user as well as for the programmer - once again sorry.

Use your time to create USEFUL software - useful for everybody.

Hopefully I'm able to contact the developer Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I hope to be able to contact the developer - perhaps it helps. Meanwhile 3*.

Internote

Very well done rebirth Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I tested 3.0.0 - and I'm really satisfied with it. Reliable, all in prior versions described bugs are removed and optically it is Internote 2.0 +
Really a good work and - also interesting - the author seems to be interested in enhancing it's capabilities.
I will use it on each FF profile and I hope, it will have a very long and active life! ;-)
