My Reviews

Evernote Web Clipper

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Used to work well. Now I have lost the right click option in Firefox "Add to Evernote" and I can't get it back no matter what I try. It is there when I create a new FF profile. How do I delete all Evernote options and reinstall?

Also I don't understand what is so difficult about getting this to work with the Beta Evernote version. Until it does I will not use Beta. This is the only thing I use Evernote for and it is useless to me without being able to clip entire webpages instantly.

I am going to give Scrapbook a try, as well as ReaditLater. Both allow searching and I believe I can get Win7 to index inside their folders/files for global searching. I will post back if I figure it out.

Mozilla Archive Format, with MHT and Faithful Save

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

You need to get the word out about this availability in Firefox. This is the first I have seen of it and I have been using FF for years now. I did a big search for ways to save as... too. So I finally find out from Umht???

Also the Mozdev version says it is incompatible with 3.5.4??? But I am using it anyway.

Great addon though. Thank you.

NoScript Security Suite

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Just wanted to say thanks. After fixing a few horrible messes on roommates' computers caused by mysterious illnesses they caught on the Internet, it has come home to me what a great job Noscript is doing on my machine. I just browse and completely forget about the crap I am not seeing in my browser. Its even easy to get deluded into thinking the Internet is getting more friendly. :)

Noscript is getting so much easier to use too. I used to feel like I was wrestling with it and now I hardly notice it.

Thanks!

SaveLink

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This addon is very handy. It solves a long-time annoyance of mine and makes things a bit faster. However I have one problem. When I right click a hyperlink to be saved, the address of the current page I am on is saved rather than the link address. This forces me to go to the link before I can save a shortcut, which slows me down and distracts me. Otherwise its a 5 star.

Data Analytics

What is it? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I don't get it. Why would you want to do spreadsheet work in Firefox instead of a powerful data app? I am missing something. What is the point of this extension?

Are you saying it grabs information tables from Websites that are not visible to the general browser? If so, explain. Are we talking about simple site-visit data and site indexes from a website, or are we talking about entire reference tables, like product lists from a retailer? If so, are we talking .Net apps too? That would be crazy... and awesome.

Fasterfox Lite

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

So far so good, however, the extension mysteriously disappeared from my computer and I had to reinstall it (no traces on my hard drive at all.) I found out because my FEBE extension kept giving me errors when I would verify my extensions' directory. It said it couldn't find Fasterfox Lite. Other than that there was no evidence of it anywhere. Although, I didn't check about:config. I had just been playing with it ealier today. Weird.

I am a little suspicious of Windows 7. It steals things. I love it but it has serious control issues. : )

AvantGarde Mist

Need a magnifying glass to read anything Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Aye yah yie! It's so small! I would love to use this theme for all the reasons you said but couldn't you leave the fonts alone or give the option to? Those of us who use larger fonts on our screens can't read this. It looks like it's in font size 0.001!

Good job though. I want to use all of these themes bad.

Evernote Web Clipper

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

PLEASE post old version of Web Clipper until you fix this version!

I no longer see the option to Add to Evernote anywhere in my menus since updating. I have all versions on other download Websites have been replaced with this version. That is very Nazi of you! 5 stars is for Evernote, NOT this version!

LowBrowse

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

FF 3.52 Install failed??? I'll check back for update. Thanx

FireTorrent

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Agree with others: need to be able to share (seed) with others and I could not specify where I wanted my file saved. Very fast though.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.6). 

WeatherBug

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Much better than foxcast. Works fine in 3.5 for me. I like the large icons because I view my screen from far away.

Evernote Web Clipper

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Crucial for Evernote users. Works great.

Download Statusbar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Love it.

Xmarks Sync

The Bomb! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The Bomb! I never even think about this addon. it just works and I know I never have to lose my bookmarks again. This along with Taboos and Read It Later allows me keep browsing reference even on multiple computers or new computer.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.3.2). 

FoxTab

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Thumbnails too small to be useful. I read screen from far away and just need a text list of my open tabs. Tab Mix plus does the job. Very "cool" though and works well.

SearchPreview

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Slows down my search and browsing but this would not be unacceptable if the preview icons weren't too small to be useful.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.22). 

Stylish

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Too many styles needed to customize each tiny element or website. I just want more large text without overlapping text in all webpages.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.5). 

FireFTP

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Couldn't search FTP sites for files. I am not seeing the usefulness of this over simply viewing and FTP site in my browser. Hmm.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.5). 

All-in-One Sidebar

Love it! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Love it! I have too many buttons on my toolbars and need the space in them. I use this a million times a day for bookmarks, history and addons.
