My Reviews

Random Agent Spoofer

Briillant Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love this addon! It allows me to uninstall a lot of other things. I especially love the option to block headers along with the useragent. And I love the little extra temporary email creator.

One problem I haven't been able to solve: I can't get the Whitelist to work with this site (mozilla addaons.) No matter what options I add, or how I format the url, this site never detects the Firefox useragent I specify (unless I disable RAS.) The whitelist works great with other websites though. (What I ended up doing what excluding all desktop browser useragents except for Firefox and Palemoon. The version is incorrect but at least I can force addon installs.)


Won't open a new url in the same tab Rated 3 out of 5 stars

#1 I love this addon but it only works well for saved sandboxes. When I open a new blank sandboxed tab I can't type in the address I want to go to because Firefox (with TMP) opens a new non-sandboxed tab from the address bar.

This is, admittedly, due to my TMP settings. I normally like a new tab to open from the address bar. But Priv8 should provide an address field I can type in and then take me there.

#2 It won't open Google contacts from within a Gmail account.

#3 Need a button to simply open a new sandboxed tab with a desired address. Also need a right click option to open the selected address in a sandbox.

LastPass Password Manager

Love it but won't log in to AMO Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Love this addon and have used it for years. It has saved my butt numerous times because I record EVERYTHING in it including old addresses, CC #'s, Driver's license etc. When you forget them just look it up in lastpass. It is the only password I never write down -- anywhere!

It won't log in to this site with Mozilla's new sign in system. Didn't ask me to save the password as a new site either. Grrrrr.

This is great! Thanks!

It's very slow when creating or modifying Sandboxes. Takes up 50% Cpu. But once created the tabs work great without issue. FYI: my Firefox profile is very large so that is probably the cause.

No way to show a popup of the image? Makes it kind of useless for me. All I see is a tiny, Illegible thumbnail. Can't tell if the information is close to what I'm looking for. A favicon is actually more useful.

I guess I could always zoom in 20x but that's ridiculous..... and it slows me down.

3 stars for working well (FFx 34.x)

Noia Fox

Where's the back button? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The default back button appears to be missing (blank spot on the toolbar.) But it's fixable in Cyberfox by enabling "Moveable Back-Forward" button" under Customize Cyberfox.

Love this theme. Doesn't mess with my interface too much but adds super-cute buttons. I can also still recognize the buttons so I'm not lost when I first install it.

A theme like this is essential for Cyberfox because some of the greyed out text is so light that it's illegible. Not sure why they did this.

Link Visitor 3

Love the Mark Bookmarks option! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Used to work great but the latest version (3.4.2) doesn't allow me to right click on a link and mark or unmark it. You now have to drag-select the link's text and then right click on it to enable the options for individual links. Not good.

...I take it back! didn't see "Toggle Visited Status" option much further up on the context menu -- not anywhere near the "Mark Links" sub menu. Back to 5 stars. Sorry.

Works great in Firefox 25.01. You're a life saver. I don't know what Mozilla was thinking when they got rid of the Ctrl+Tab-search feature. Their search function in tab groups is useless when you have 100+ tabs open. You made Firefox usable again.

FindBar Tweak

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm impressed. This add-on has gotten even better since I last tried it. More features, and no UI issues or compatibility problems with All-in-one Sidebar. Very responsive developer!

Be sure to check out what happens when you select the option: "Open 'Find-in-all-tabs' in a separate windows." It searches through all your active tabs at once, and shows you where each hit is. If you have a lot of tabs open, or a lot of data you're working on this is incredible.

I do wish it would search the tab titles so I don't need Tabhunter. But I'm not complaining!

I'm using it in all my profiles now. Thanks!

Add Bookmark Here ²

The default is still Unsorted bookmarks! Rated 2 out of 5 stars

No problems with crashing but... It doesn't change the default bookmark folder in the pop-up dialogue or the one-click Bookmark link. I thought that was the main purpose of this extension. There really is no other use for it. (Firefox 24.)

I can add bookmarks to folders in one click without this addon. I added my preferred folder to the Bookmarks Toolbar and enabled it. Now I just drag any link or Tab to that folder. You can also drag it to the bookmark button and it will open folders as you pause on them. Alternately, you can open the bookmarks sidebar to drop a lot of links, and organize them.

Color toggle

If you use dark Windows themes this is an essential eye-saver Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Just what I needed. I would rather have something that modifies all white backgrounds only, but for now this will do. I like the fact that I can simply click a button to turn default styles back on when I can't see background images. Firefox/Cyberfox 33.

(Alternative: "I hate white" userscript -- works 50% of the time. If anyone knows of another please post it.) (Alternative2: The "Toolbar buttons" extension has a Toggle colours button.) Compatible with Firefox 33.

Gmail Manager NG

Very well thought out! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm impressed. All the little details are included such as mailto: protocol only linking to one account, and allowing you to set some accounts to notify and others not to. It even has an option to disable the context menu options for less clutter.

Took me a while to figure out how to get automatic logins to work. I had "Clear History" turned on and inside I had "Saved passwords" checked. Untick that and you don't even need Firefox to remember your passwords. It will remember you without that option (clearing Cookies and Active logins is OK too.)

New Tab from Location Bar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent. Worked perfectly. Just the ticket if you don't need the extra features of TabMix Plus and you often search from your location bar. (FFx v16.0.2)

Minimize Addon-Bar

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very nice idea and good customization options. Very nice that you can keep some icons unhidden by increasing the minimum size. Worked fine in Firefox 16 for me.

It isn't useful to me, though, unless I can maximize the addon bar to it's full width when clicking the arrow. I moved my url box down to the Addon bar so I can hide my address bar (since FFx won't let you move certain status icons.) With this extension my url is completely hidden and there's no way to show it. In addition, I have no way to Search from the url box (using Omnibar.) I will look for an autohide extension instead. But Thank you!

FindBar Tweak

Why isn't this a Firefox default? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

At last! Highlight-All is enabled, the Findbar and Quick Search bar are in synch, and F3 works in both.

Problems with the sidebar locking up when AIOS sidebar is on the right. It must be placed on the left. If this conflicts with Windows taskbar for anyone see bug report for a fix

With a lot of tabs open the tabs run off the screen when AIOS is open, and placed on the LEFT side. But they fall back into place when the sidebar is closed so this a minor issue for me.

Author is very responsive and attentive. Nice guy!

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

For those who don't speak Chinese, this addon puts all of your addon bar's (status bar) icons in the urlbar (not the toolbar!), effectively replacing your url if you have a lot. It then hides your addon bar giving a little more screen space. However, the urlbar will be a bit bigger (the same size as when large icons are turned on.) He also says to turn off the icon text through your customize-toolbar options.

It displays EVERYTHING that the status bar does including notifications and download status. Works well with Status-4-Evar addon (or statusbar options for Palemoon users.)

Sort and Search Customization Dialogs

Just what I wished for Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've been asking Santa Clause to send this addon for years! Apparently I was a very bad girl until now. :-) The "Toolbar Buttons" addon is a must-have for me but it's quite a PITA finding what you need without this addon.

This extension also makes your life a breeze when trying out new extensions. No more hunting and guessing whether it offers a toolbar icon. It's usually the last icon in the box. When in doubt, do a quick text search to be sure you're not overlooking it.

I love the sort options too... Heck, I just LOVE this addon! Thank you!

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

All page loading, and even scrolling previously opened pages, hesitates for a second. Some clicked actions in Firefox do the same thing. It all returns to normal when Greasefire is Disabled. We need a checkbox to disable Greasefire scanning until we're ready to use it. Restarting to Enable, then again to Disable sucks.

I really love this addon and am excited that both GM and this still work so well with Firefox 12. However, I'll be running with it Disabled mostly.

Side Tabs

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Forces "All-in-One Sidebar" to be next to it no matter which side I select. I want tabs on one side, All-in-One on the other. Tried changing options in both addons. I suspect this is true for any sidebar extension.

Also, options buttons just opens a new page instead of a settings popup. Not a big deal but it's pretty confusing when my addon configurations are in the sidebar (All-in-one Sibebar again.)

I like the simplicity and speed though! Hope I can use it soon.

Evernote Web Clipper

Fonts messed up; Won't paste to web anymore Rated 3 out of 5 stars

v5.0 is all messed up now. v4.0+ won't clip at all in FFx 9+. That version was perfect at last!

1. The clipper used to respect my font settings in the Evernote client. Now it only either clips in Serif or Sans-Serif depending on what I have my browser fonts set to. It won't respect my font size -- neither my Browser's nor Evernote's. I Can't read the tiny text it uses. The various Webclip options have no affect. Manually editing fonts for now. :-(

Update: Workaround - Ctrl+Alt+V pastes to Evernote from the clipboard -- and keeps Evernote's font settings! The disadvantage is that you don't keep the Webpage formatting when you copy an entire page, but you do get all the links, images, and the source url is correct. So...

Entire Webpage - Ctrl+A >> Ctrl+C >> Ctrl+Alt+V
Selection only - Select the content >> Ctrl+C >> Ctrl+Alt+V

2. I have found page formats used to come out much better when clipped to the web instead of the desktop. But now it won't clip to the Web at all. Just a blank box that hangs there after I log in. It also won't search my notes -- it just spins (waiting) forever. I have a fast 100Mb connection. I will submit support tickets too.

Update: Upon Tech Support's advice I set FFx to allow third party cookies. Sending notes to Evernote Web works then. However, third party cookies are an invasion of my privacy. Setting a cookie exception for Evernote works too, but when I have my browser set to delete cookies on restart it does not keep the exception. This was not necessary before, and IS NOT AN ACCEPTABLE SOLUTION.

Thanks for the hard work, but I may regress to an older Firefox and Webclipper 4.0 now.
