My Reviews

Firepicker

wow, I love this Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I use FireBug a lot for developing webpage styles, and this little color picker helper just makes FireBug even better. I love the update of the lightness slider which is so helpful when you want to adjust a color value but stay in the same hue. Thank you so much for this!

Rehost Image

much appreciated! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I was devastated when ImageShack discontinued their right-click hosting application. But this one is even better! The automatic resizing feature is so useful, and the copy to clipboard saves that step. I would love to see a toolbar or statusbar icon available in addition to the right click access. That would make it perfect.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.10). 

BBCode

Love this one.... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

By far the best of the BBcode extensions. Love the flexibility to create custom bbcodes with wildcard insertions or not, as desired. Definitely worth a contribution.

Clear Cache Button

returned to version 0.8 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I returned to version 0.8 purely because the new icon is too big. The notifier panel was nice, but I don't really need it as long as the extension does it's job, which it appears to do quite well. Simple is usually best. The hover image and onclick change seems plenty sufficient to know the icon recognized it was being clicked. In fact, it would make more sense to me to have the icon change color to confirm ti actually cleared the cache than to have a confirmation panel slide into the farthest side of the screen. Just seems unrelated somehow. I'm giving 5 stars, but that's for version 0.8. Version 0.9 only gets 4 because of the oversized icon and random placement of the notifier.

Smiley Xtra

Great concept....bad smilie choices Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Version 5 is impressive in it's scope and operation.. and I do appreciate the effort made to provide it. The new way to save favorites is a vast improvement. That being said....I've returned to version 4.1.1 because of the disappointing quality of the smilies in the deviantArt database. They are too small to even discern expressions sometimes, and I find the allowing of profanity in the titles to be extremely offensive. Searches bring up completely unrelated images and smilies are often titled with obviously personal or customized intent that has nothing to do with what they are. It makes sifting through the long lists tedious and counter-productive.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.0.2). 

MySmileys

really helpful addon Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I would say that the only drawback to this add-on is that it doesn't work on all forum systems. I'd love it if that functionality was added (or for that matter, email and messenger compatibility. It would be great to have one addon that did all.) It is easy to add and edit from either the context menu or the task bar icon, and it's great to have a standardized shortcut that you choose for your favorite smilies from board to board. I think it's great that the little icon turns green when you are on a page that you can use the function on. I would suggest that anyone using this pick an odd character to add to or preface their shortcuts. I had a smiley show up in the middle of a word before I started doing that.

CoolPreviews

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Love the CoolPreviews extension. It saves me SO much time clicking into image links for cataloguing projects. Unfortunately, the 2.7.1 update has made my copy/paste function unreliable. This is unacceptable, so I've unintalled the update and re-installed 2.7 version which worked just peachy and caused no problems for anything else. My only annoyance with the way CP works is that sometimes I end up popping up a preview of something I didn't want to see if the mouse accidentally stays on the icon just a bit too long. Great extension guys. I really don't miss not having the added features in 2.71. This extension does exactly what I want without them.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.7.1). 

Paste Quote

this is a must have for forumers Rated 4 out of 5 stars

One of my most used extensions....love it! Would also love to see an addition that does the same thing with [img] tags.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.3). 

WeatherBug

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Exactly what I wanted. A temp reading that that I can click for more info and forecasts, and a cute little bug that delivers severe weather alerts. Love the flexibility of putting it anywhere I want, including where it is inserted in the bar or my choice, and configuring it to be very minimal. The weather station that reports to me is only 2 blocks away. Can't get more local than that. I had downloaded the WeatherBug program...OMGosh....it took nearly 40 minutes to install and the screens were big splashy commercials with the info tucked in between animated ads. A real turn off. This extension is SO much better....Lean and lightweight and good looking. A definite 5 stars from me.

QuickNote

a must have Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is definitely on my must-have extensions list. I've always used Notepad for this kind of thing, but having the function instantly available from the toolbar with all former data always there is so much more convenient. Love the save-link feature and the ability to float the box. A keeper!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6.0.4). 

Nightly Tester Tools

really pleased... Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I was able to get ImageShack Right Click (my most can't-live-without-it tool) working with this extension, and I like the option to copy the extensions list to the clipboard as well as the screenshot grabber. It would be even better if there was a shortcut icon for the screenshot function. Any chance of that being added?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.2). 

InFormEnter

what a great tool! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I love that I no longer have to constantly type in my long and involved street address ever again! Once you figure out the basic set up technique, this is super simple to manage and use. (But I still don't understand some of the profile hint options....) A screen shot of a finished sample profile would have been helpful. For those like me that need pictures, I found a video tutorial here: http://www.viddler.com/molzy/videos/65/
It would be nice if there was some way that the selection menu would stay open while you were selecting and pasting to the form on the current page instead of having to open the pop up for each item.

QuickImage

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I am quite pleased at how simple and easy this extension is to use. It does what it promises. As I plan to use it for moderating spam image postings, having it execute on the next page load works fine for me. One caustion--be sure to return your settings to default before uninstalling QuickImage, or your last settings will remain active.
