My Reviews

Redirector

Works for me on FF 27 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I always forget to buy things through Amazon's "Smile" program-- this add-on automatically redirects me to the Smile program affiliate page any time I go to Amazon.com which is exactly what I needed.

For those having problems, I used "http://www.amazon.com" (without the quotes) as the Example URL and Include Pattern and "http://smile.amazon.com/" (without the quotes) as the Redirect To URL, selected Wildcard as the Pattern Type, and left Unescape and Escape Matches unchecked.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.8.1). 

LastPass Password Manager

Love it, use it so many times each day. Web security must-have. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Love the "Generate secure password" feature. Love the groups feature. Love this product.

My only complaint is that you can't edit shared items within the plugin, you have to go out to Lastpass.com and do it. The worst part is that the plugin gives no indication your shared edits weren't saved. Only after a bit of hair pulling and multiple retries did I figure out this was the issue.

UnloadTab

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on is amazing! I'm on a Mac and run two instances of Firefox, one for work-related things and another for personal stuff. At work the first one would invariably creep up to using 1GB+ of RAM, and the other often-idle personal one would still use up ~700MB. With this add-on the worst offender now hovers around 500MB and the mostly idle one sits at less than 40MB. Yes, 40MB. The only changes I made to the settings was uncheck the "keep pinned tabs loaded" box and changed the "unload inactive tabs" time value to 5 minutes instead of the default 10.

Fantastic work!

HackTheWeb

Yay, finally an Aardvark replacement! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've missed using Aardvark and not only does this add-on replicate its features, it uses the same keyboard shortcuts and throws in some extra features along with it. Great add-on, thank you!

Progress Bar on Tab

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

FYI, this extension was making Firebug 1.8 disappear for me on FF5, once I disabled it I got Firebug back again.

Visual Bookmarks

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Looked promising until I realized you have to sign in with your email address & password?? No way!

Lyric-Picker

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works great! Exactly what I was looking for.

It found my obscure songs and allows text highlighting (unlike most annoying lyric search sites that are nothing but flashing ads.)

Better GReader

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great add-on! The best part is the "preview" button that lets you view the original article within GReader.

Mac OSX skin is nice too, good to have a change of scenery. Would love to still see the favicons, however.
