My Reviews

Awesome RSS

Nice and simple Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I wanted this to be part of Firefox, but seems they do not like the current shape of the related Firefox code so much, they want to avoid even such changes. This is wonderful.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.0). 

Tabby Cat

Brings light to Nightly Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have tried this in Nightly and it looks super cute! The only this I am missing is the purr sound when I pet the cat with a cursor.

Pontoon Enhanced

Very usefl Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Updating the tab title with the project name is very useful when working in multiple tabs at once. The number of strings is also not bad to have.

What I do not like much is the automatic selecting when the input contains a single word. Especially in cases when I click to add a placeholder first, I cannot type the rest of the string translation before clicking the input or pressing an arrow key (typing would override the added placeholder).

chlorine-http

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works exactly as I have expected. Only "drawback" is that it's not localizable, and the link leads to en-US version of the SUMO article only. If there is a public repository, I will be more than happy to help.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.1). 

Tab Center Redux

for Android? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I wonder why this add-on is marked as compatible with Firefox for Android...

Anyway this looks like a interesting spin of Tab Center Test Pilot experiment, with few limitations (I guess it's because of the WebExtensions API). First the base line with tabs is still there. Second it's in the commons sidebar, so you cannot access i.e. bookmarks sidebar at the same time.

Giving 4*, as I like the feature very much. Would be nice to have a Ctrl+"key" shortcut to quickly switch to the tabs sidebar.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.2). 

Adblock Plus

slows down Fennec a lot Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Giving 3 stars for decent UI on desktop, but on Android slows down the browser a lot, even in Settings or homepage.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.8.2). 

No Resource URI Leak

Bug fix Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Could you change this add-on into a fix for the bug?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.0). 

Feedly Notifier Plus

Very simple and predictable Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very simple add-on which does what promises. Simple click on the button to open Feedly. +1

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.1.1-signed). 

Trashcan

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works quite good. In fact, I have never looked inside the trash, but I feel much more confident, when it does exist.

Only one little bug I have found, when used together with Google Provider, when syncing after any event deleted, there is a warning window (MODIFICATION_FAILED).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0). 

Download Statusbar

breaks download manager in FF23 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

In FF23 beta makes integrated download manager not working. Downloads are listed just in Download statusbar but not in the Firefox manager.

Can somebody confirm this issue?

The Old Reader Notifier

Options request and a small bug found Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I would appreciate an option to change the interval of checking new unread articles. And is it possible to show unread feed names on hover? Otherwise 4+ stars.EDIT: I found a small bug. When there's a space placed in the toolbar on the right side of addon icon, after FF starts, the position of icon and space is switched.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.1.1-signed.1-signed). 

Folderpane Tools

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Shows also Chat account - a little bit annoying for me.

Suspend background tabs

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Combined with about:config "plugins.click_to_play" - perfect!

Flat Bookmarks

reorder your bookmarks Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It could be difficult to sort more bookmarks inside the sidebar. They are like disordering themselves as I add any new one.
Flat Bookmarks provide a way to use better structure of folders without getting lost during browsing them - very important for me. ;-)
I wish everybody to find this and explore a better bookmarking.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.7.6.1-signed). 

Element Hiding Helper for Adblock Plus

must-have for any AdBlock user Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a must-have addon if you have AdBlock installed.
Their combination is simply brilliant. It helps me a lot, because I can quickly make a new rule every time I find any unhidden ad. Subsequently I can report it to the filter list administrator.
When you use the developer tools included in Firefox to explore the website (Ctrl+Shift+I), the usage is very intuitive.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.2.1-signed). 

Flashblock

saves weaker machines Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've found very difficult to handle multiple YTb tabs opened on my netbook without intolerable lagging. This add-on is a really simple solution.
And there is also no more the problem with automatically started videos on any site or with huge and wasteful flash ads.

Thank you, just keep going.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5.15.1.1-signed).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Google Shortcuts - All Google Services at a glance

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It works nice - good job.

But IMHO it's not useful for everybody. For example: when I have active bookmarks toolbar, it's much more easier to manage there a folder with appropriate links - this solution is also sync-able between computers.

2 stars down - not beneficial for me

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.7.1.1-signed.1-signed). 

PDF Viewer(discontinued)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Incomparably faster than Adobe plugin - for me the best solution for document previews.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.0.1-signed.1-signed). 

Flashblock

Very useful on weaker machines Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I found this add-on very long time ago, because I wanted something to restrict flash from slowing my netbook. Working very well...
But I see one shortage - for me (FF8, Windows XP & W764bit) is not working the synchronization feature. Even on the Sync server allocation is saved nothing by Flashblock. So one star down, but still great add-on.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5.15.1.1-signed). 

Copy goo.gl URL

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

IMHO this is worse remake of 'goo.gl lite' add-on. Unlike 'goo.gl lite' this add-on has icon (instead of button), so it's not possible to place it into the Navigation bar correctly.
