My Reviews

Wired-Marker

Glad it's working again Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I can now recommend this addon again for marking where you have read up to on a page. It's working for Firefox 53.0.2 again so thanks to the dev for fixing it again.

I think it could be streamlined a bit more so that you can create the markers more easily. At the moment I'm doing a right click > wired marker > marker > select marker colour which is a bit slow. Perhaps "Highlight text > Click toolbar button > Select colour" would be easier. I tried to use the toolbar button but could not find a way to create the markers using it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.0.17042100).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

TitleQ

Didn't seem to work Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Exactly what I was looking for but unfortunately it didn't seem to work for me. Using CTRL+Up/Down simply dived to the bottom or top of the page. Perhaps it would be better if it just went to the next h1-6 tag in the curent block.

Wired-Marker

Seemed to stop working Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I was using the Right click menu to highlight text in different colours and it was great. It keeps the highlighting regardless of whether you refresh which is what I needed. But now it no longer works and the right click menu has vanished entirely. I'm using FF 52.0.2.

Video DownloadHelper

Great video extension Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Brillian media downloader with a great track record for being able to download when others can't.

Lately I've had a few problems and can't seem to download from many Mixcloud links, e.g. http://bit.ly/2oeBy1Q

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.2.0). 

Popup Blocker (Lite)

Will keep watching. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I was pretty hopeful about this addon but it seems just as innefective as the other popup blockers. I went to popuptest.com but it failed miserably.

Reply to author's comment: Thanks for listening and improving on the addon.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.1). 

Autofill

Not what I was looking for Rated 2 out of 5 stars

It seems to be designed for situations where you have to fill out the same form over and over. Most forms I have to fill out are always slightly different so it just won't be useful.

I found the support site and it seems that you have to use Right click > "Add rules for this form". So I think it's designed for repetitive form-filling of the same form.

I found it a bit difficult to use. You go through the wizard and nothing seems to happen. Better usability needed.

InFormEnter

Had to uninstall Rated 2 out of 5 stars

The problems I've had with this form filler are:

1) It loads for every form field regardless of whether it has 1 field or 50. This means it even shows on search boxes.
2) Slow to fill out.
3) Does not attemp to guess what should be entered.

Simple form filler was better but now that's gone too.

No Close Buttons

Removes all Close Buttons Rated 3 out of 5 stars

What it basically does is removes all the close buttons. So you will have to use CTRL+W to close tabs now if that's what you want.

What I was looking for was a way to get one close button at the right hand side of the browser window for all tabs (Opera style), because I find I click the close buttons by mistake all the time and have to strain my eyes to prevent it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.1-signed.1-signed). 

ThunderSec

Has a big bug Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Seems good so far but it interfers with the notifications in TB 45. So if TB says "Thunderbird thinks this message is junk", then you can't see the message from Thundersec. You can't click the close button either because the Thundersec messages are not underneath them.

I think it needs adjusting for average users. I just wanted to validate that messages were from the host they said they were and then either move to Junk or Deleted items (a feature I feel TB should have out of the box).

Decentraleyes

Could not recommend highly enough Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The recommendation to replace ABP with Ublock Origin has also helped a huge amount. Now pages load almost instantly and my Firefox memory usage has shrunk to 500mb from 1.2gb! All this time pages were loading so slowly and no amount of optimization of addon choices seemed to help.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.5). 

Tab Data (+Memory usage)

So far very useful Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This works very well and shows which pages are using large amounts of memory. This lets you close down things which are hogging memory. It's amazing that something as simple as Twitter is using 50mb+ and a simple news article is using 32mb on Sky news.

Session Manager

Pretty good but.. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Usability needs improving a lot.

Rename should use a drop down / text box combined to enable you to select existing group (otherwise you end up with Shopping, shops, buying, and purchases in the list.
Delete closes the tools menu but what if you want to delete more than one? You have to load the folder up.
Not really a way to grab multiple sessions and regroup / delete them.
Append to current session could be simplified to "Open in new window".

Should be built in to Firefox as it's extremely useful as is. Reduces the amount of bookmarks you need and allows you to create tasks to do the things you need to in multiple tabs.

Save Images

Very useful tool Rated 5 out of 5 stars

What's Good
Can save all images from all open tabs and restrict to certain filesizes and dimensions. Can also save from current tab or tabs to the left or tabs to the right. Very useful for wallpaper sites. Will save to a given folder. It generally saves only images you want. It will not save images with known banner sizes but not all banners have the standard dimensions.

Improvements
There is a bug where it will show the dialogue box at the start with 0 images saved. It will then go on to save all images properly and provide the same dialogue again with the right number of images saved. Minor issue that needs fixing.

Would be good to be able to block keywords such as "banner" as not all banners are the proper sizes.

The Addon Bar (Restored)

Please add a lock option. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It's good to be able to get the addon bar back. With 302 reviews and 121,276 installs isn't it time Mozilla brought the bar back?

I tend to accidently close the bar by mistake so an improvement would be to have an option to remove the close button.

(In reply to below that worked. I use Customize all the time but didn't realize that would be changeable.)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.2.9-compat-fixed).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Message Notes Plus

Good but does not work with Search Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I wanted to add text to emails so that they would show up in the search in future (like tags in Firefox bookmarks). This addon lets you add notes in an attractive and sensible way but is not factored into the search engine.

There is no box alongside the other buttons (Sender, Recipients, Subject, Body) which would be idea really.

Otherwise it's great. It appears as a panel at the bottom of the message and there is the ability to change the height of the box if so wished. It works well with TB 38.5.0.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4.0.8). 

SmartTemplate

Looks really good until.. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

..you find out it's not compatible with Thunderbird anymore.

The Addon Bar (Restored)

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Essential component now restored!
I works perfectly. I just wish I could turn off the close button. The search bar appears right next to it and it's far too easy to kill it off at the same time.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.2.1-signed). 

Stop Tube HTML5

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Works ok but only for fresh page loads and not refresh or links.

FlashStopper

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Excellent. But do I still have the HTML5 player? It looks different now.

Update: After turning off Flash Player I found that the addon only works for fresh page loads. If you refresh or click a link then it doesn't work for HTML5 videos.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.5.1-signed). 

Stop YouTube Autoplay

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Does not stop Youtube autoplay at all so 1 star.
