Element Hiding Helper for Adblock Plus

VERY NICE!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

At first I wasn't quite sure exactly how this worked, so I'll explain it in very simple terms.

You just right-click on your Adblock Plus icon and click on the new option "Select Element To Hide" (or use the keyboard shortcut). You then get a red box that forms around different elements (very specific portions of the page) as you hover your mouse over them. You select what you never want to see again and the add-on automatically generates a new filter rule. Click on the "Add Filter Rule" button, and you make the internet a happier place =)

Simple as that!! The first thing I got rid of was the friend suggester on facebook (it's ALWAYS annoyed me!!).

This works great! I can't wait to get rid of more annoying crap!!!

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

Bing Images

All I use Bing for is the image search! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Nice!! I love Bing's results for image searches, and this saves me a click! I was looking at the CyberSearch add-on and I don't see why it's any better than a well stocked library of search engines.

As soon as CyberSearch adds keywords for every single search engine that firefox offers (and the ability to dis/enable them) I might go to that and delete my searchbar altogether. ....until then.....

Restart Firefox

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Wonderful!! Just what I was looking for :) It seems to restart MUCH faster than hitting the 'X' and reopening.

I'm guessing it will also reduce the likelihood of me getting the "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you must..." message.

I like this in the File Menu, but the toolbar button needs to look a little less friendly than what it looks like now. Maybe a Spinning Firefox (think Sonic the Hedgehog)...something that wouldn't accidentally be mistakenly hit by a guest on my computer thinking it's the reload button, which is almost exactly what it looks like. Maybe a dropdown menu asking for a close second click would work. I'm just concerned that I might accidentally restart while in the middle of something important. I like my computer to be idiot/me-proof ;)


There's also a keyboard shortcut I just found. I won't be disrespectful to the add-on developer and tell you what it is here though. But I do want you all to know it's an option.

Thanks for another great addition to the greatest browser in the world =D

Nightly Tester Tools

I just downloaded FFx 3.5 and I was hiding this in my bookmarks for just this occasion!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I saw it awhile back and knew it would come in handy(so I just saved the link in my fevorites, and sure enough it did exactly what I hoped it would do!!!!

Thanks for making my 3.5 transition seamless :) I've still got FFx 3.0.11 installed JUST IN CASE ;)

If your add-ons aren't working with 3.5, give this a try! So far it seems to be working great for me! =D Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU....

AutoPager

A Must Have!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It makes the internets and the googles behave like they should!! lol

Instead of clicking next page, next page, next page... I just keep scrolling and scrolling until I'm done reading a long story or choosing the best result from a search engine etc.. I don't know why sites aren't designed to do this all the time in any browser. This is the way the internet 'should' work by default. I highly recommend an app similar to "Yet Another Smooth Scrolling 2.0.20" to be able to deal with the long pages that can be created by this app. There are some Page Up/Down and Top/Bottom buttons included in each pagebreak that help too (but

Other than a little green loading tab reminding me that it's doing it's job, I could easily forget that this add-on was ever installed...until I use another browser or computer!

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS APP =D

Digg Extension for Firefox

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

There's room for improvement, but I'm not gonna complain. Okay, I probably will complain a little, but that's all anyone ever does on these things!!

I use sharaholic, which works excellent with facebook and okay for MySpace, and it really dissadpointed me in it's digging ability. It expected me to fill out 3 minutes ( I type slow :) worth of crap before asking me if my submission matched a whole list of similar diggs. I knew I wouldn't do that more than twice, so I found this.

Much better! ...but still not my vision of excellence. Like many others, I want to see the movable (and smaller) icon, and I want to be able to digg an already submitted page without going to digg.

I'm sure in future versions all this will all be included.

Everything else is great. I love the idea, and what it's capable of doing.

I look forward to future updates :)

NoScript Security Suite

I love it!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm still telling it which sites to allow and forbid and it's starting to move more into the background of my surfing.

One feature I would like to see is the ability to click on a site in the menu and be able to learn about it. I'm unable copy and paste the names, so I'm forced to go to my bookmarks, open WOT, and type any questionable sites in (hoping to type it perfectly). It would be nice to be able to right click and instantly receive the info I need to decide what to allow or forbid.

Overall it works exactly as I would expect. Thanks!!
