The add one works, the list management sucks Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Offers plenty of filter lists, but they are poorly named, many have duplicate names (but are in fact different lists!), no detailed descriptions what these lists actually really filter or who is managing them or where these lists come from, no way to see what's actually on these lists or how many entries a list has. There is also no way to add your own custom lists, something pretty much every adblocker out there offers (you could only copy/paste their content into the custom rules field). The whole list management is basically crap.
Compare that to uBlock Origin, where lists have much better naming, are sorted into meaningful categories, where you can see their origin and also their content, as well as their size. Also you can add your own list URLs. uBlock Origin also seems much faster and much more powerful, albeit the UI is somewhat more ugly.
Oh, and bug reports and feature requests seem to be generally ignored. I don't even know if this addon is really actively developed.
I give it three stars as with the right lists selected, the addon does work quite okay and filters most adds as promised, but I see far better adblockers available here.
IMHO still the best Rated 5 out of 5 stars
If you need a password manager solution that will work across all platforms (including smart phones), all OSes, all browsers and that is more than affordable (many users can use it for free and even a premium account is very affordable compared to competitor prices), LP is for you. Storing passwords on servers is always risky, but using poor passwords or the same passwords everywhere is much, much, much more risky today!
Regarding all the comments about 4.x: 4.x is still not stable, it's an alpha version. So it has bugs, it may not always work correctly, it may be slow, functionality may be missing, it may fail completely if there is a browser update. That's what alpha means. Seriously, how can you install an alpha version and then make complains like that and give poor ratings? That's also why there is no autoupdate to 4.x Users have to decide themselves if they want to test alpha versions. Once 4.x is considered stable enough to replace 3.x, there will be an autoupdate for sure. Right now you are not missing anything if you stay with 3.x (the biggest changes are the new UI look so far).
Awesome! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I was always asking myself why there's only "allow forever" and "allow for session" in Firefox, yet no "allow while page is open". This addon adds exactly that missing functionality and it works like a charm.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.7.1-signed).
It's very simple and it actually works Rated 5 out of 5 stars
It has no complicated settings (actually it has no settings at all), no complicated interface or menus. You just open a page with a video, start playing the video (sometimes you don't even have to start it), click the green icon (should have turned green to indicate that it found a video) and click the video you want to download. The downloads dialog opens, a nice name is suggested already (even if the real file has just a number or other cryptographic name), click OK and the download starts. That's it. It works where other video downloaders fail (they don't even see a video) and contrary to these, it can even be installed w/o browser restart. All thumbs up!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (126.96.36.199-signed).
Finally an Add-On that works Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Contrary to Force-TLS which doesn't work at all since Fx 36 (you can add domains to the list, but that's all you can do, they will still open at HTTP), this add-on really works and does what it is supposed to do.
UPDATE (October 9, 2015):
Now that the UI has been improved (see comment below) my only real point of criticism has vanished, so this add-on now deserves 5 stars.
Still broken in 38.0.1 Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Adding a site to the list has no effect, site still opens with HTTP. Checking the checkbox on the Permissions tab of the Page Info will also add the side to the list, but already when closing and reopening then Page Info (without reloading the page) the checkbox isn't set anymore (yet the site is still on the list).
And it's not Firefox that is broken here. When installing Enforce Encryption, opening the page with HTTPS and checking the force checkbox, the page is also added to the list in Force-TLS, but now it will open with HTTPS (as desired) and now the checkbox on the Permissions tab of the Page Info is checked when I open it, so this add-on does it right.
Rated 2 out of 5 stars
UI is very limited, cannot be sorted or filtered, window cannot even be resized, refresh button does nothing (have to close and re-open window to see updates) and it fails to show "session data" (if you force all cookies to be session cookies, HTML5 DOM Storage data is also only kept for the current session and that session data never appears in the window). All in all I cannot recommend this addon.
A must have for Mac all users! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This plugin works as expected. There is nothing to configure, just install it and your passwords are stored to keychain and read from keychain instead of the internal storage or Firefox or Thunderbird.
For Mac users it just "feels natural" that applications store their passwords via the Keychain Service API. I was always disappointed that Firefox had no keychain support built-in; but for Thunderbird this was actually a showstopper! This addon is the *ONLY* reason why I started using Thunderbird again on the Mac! Finally I don't have to enter a Master Password each time Thunderbird is started, because w/o a Master Password your passwords are not really protected at all (every app with access to your profile folder can easily access and decrypt your e-mail passwords). Now all my mail passwords are securely stored in a keychain.
And I want to thank the author of this addon for implementing the Keychain Service API correctly! Some Mac developers, sometimes even Apple themselves, fail to use this API correctly. They always think the user will never have more than one keychain and this one keychain is always named "login". This is of course a major fail. The user may have hundreds of keychains, some may be shared with other users, some may not, and he is free to move items between them as he pleases. Sometimes, when I move a password from one keychain to another one, some apps fail to find it. Of course apps should always search all keychains in the Keychain List for their items, picking the first match found (as keychains are searched in a specific order that can also be controlled by the user) and they should always add new items to whatever keychain is the default keychain (which may not be named "login"). Actually both happens automatically if one doesn't tell Keychain Service otherwise. Also items should always be updated in place; some apps delete the old item first and then create a new one, but that can cause items to move from their current keychain back to the default keychain, it also causes a loss of access control rules, both is of course undesired. As far as I can see, this addon works exactly as it should :-)
Almost Perfect Rated 4 out of 5 stars
A very handy add-on which I can only recommend. I really like the way how it helps to compact the lists, change the number of items displayed, the time remaining format and the mouse over behavior.
What I miss is the functionality of "Download Cleaner":
It would integrate perfectly into this add-on.
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I really love this addon. It's the most important addon of all my addons, since downloading files without that addon is simply no fun. Unfortunately it isn't working with Firefox 26, but I'm pretty sure that can be fixed :-)
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I really love the new interface! ^_^ Having items sorted by day is really a neat feature and being able to see from what feed they are is very useful. Also the annoying bug that "Unread" comes up empty (until you switch to something else and back again) has finally been fixed.
I have no idea what lilacle is talking about, though, hitting F (or the icon on top) still toggles between preview and head line view.
Almost Perfect Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Very useful extension to get rid of those stupid icons on the tab bar (something Lightning should offer by in its preferences IMHO); however, there is one tiny bug. When you add these buttons now to the mail toolbar, they work without any issues, however, on my Mac, they don't get "highlighted" when you click them (usually, when you click a toolbar button and keep the mouse pressed, it is darkened until you release the button again; this works with all items except those provided by this extension).This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5.2).
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Now that I switched to LastPass, I won't need this extension any longer, but it is great that such an extension exists! Where I would still need such an extension is for Thunderbird, since there is no LastPass plugin for Thunderbird unfortunately :-( This extension works great, as far as I tested it :-)This review is for a previous version of the add-on (188.8.131.52-signed.1-signed).
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
It works perfectly for me (tested with English and German dictionary installed) and it switches really fast, even though the code looks rather expensive. I see some room for improvements (still not worth 5 stars), but it's pretty good.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.2.1-signed).
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Brilliant idea, works great also, I'd give you 5 stars, but it has some display issues on Mac. Neither does the (semi) transparent mode work correctly, nor does any of the themes really fit perfectly to the native Mac theme.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.2009031701).
Direction okay, but still a long way Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Okay, as has been said here before, there are some really nasty issues. One issue is that the close button (X) is wrong side (on Mac we use to have it in the upper left, also for windows, not upper right, as Windows OS has).
Another issue is that the preferences tool bar is... well, I'm not sure what it is or what it is supposed to immitate, but it's ugly (sorry I have to say that).
Regarding what Nibbling Hell Goat wrote, I disagree with the tabs being attached to the wrong side. They are exactly like Safari does it and nobody ever complained about it there.
But I agree with Billau, Fission was one of my most favorite plugins ever; being unable to use it with that theme is very, very bad.
Won\'t work with Proto Rated 2 out of 5 stars
Don\'t get me wrong, I really don\'t expect you to fix this add on for every of the hundreds themes available on the net, but Proto will most likely become the new default theme for MacOS X users in the final Firefox 3 release (at least that\'s what Mozilla says is planed) and that this add-on, most interesting for Mac users fail to work with the new default theme for that platform is a bit... well, awkward :-/ Same BTW for unified back/forward button, they don\'t even appear if Proto theme is active.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9).
