Menu Wizard

Wonderful, versatile (mostly) easy to use add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

So glad to find this add-on to use in place of Menu Editor, as ME is no longer signed and thus unavailable with FF 50. But Menu Wizard is even more versatile, and (mostly) a lot easier to use due to the intuitive split-screen drag 'n drop for reordering commands, as well as the check boxes for removing unwanted commands. And it's SO useful to be able to save the settings once it is set up. After I got everything set up the way I wanted on one computer, I just saved the settings, copied the settings file to my other computer, loaded it, and, voila, everything was instantly replicated on my second computer!

A few suggestions for improvements to make this great add-on even better: (1) Explain the meaning and use of the various types of separators and what their odd labels mean (although I was able to pretty much just ignore them); and (2) Make it clear that the request to allow advertising is only one-time request. I originally uninstalled the add-on, thinking I would frequently see the request, but then saw the developer's reply to another reviewer explaining that it is one-time only. (I did make a well-deserved donation for the add-on.)

Also, on the first of the two computers I put this on, for some reason the main context-menu navigation/bookmark buttons show up *to the right* of the command I moved to appear immediately *below* them, thus widening the menu. It's odd that the buttons didn't just stay at the very top instead. On my second computer that issue did not occur. (I am not submitting this as a bug report since I rarely use the main context-menu navigation/bookmark buttons, so I just unticked them in the computer that has that problem.)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.05). 


Great add-on, have used for years Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great add-on. Does just what I want it to do, and with the options I need. Have used it for years, and am so glad it's still active. I just updated to Firefox 45, and for the first time ever Deskcut stopped working. Fortunately just uninstalling and reinstalling Deskcut had it working again in less than a minute.

Ant Video Downloader

Best Add-On Downloader Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've tried many of the downloader add-ons, and ANT is definitely the best. As with all of them are a few things it can't capture, but it's still a wonderful tool for the cost -- FREE! And they are really good at responding to support requests. I would have preferred that they didn't need to go to mkv format for many downloads, but apparently there are changes in YouTube and Firefox that made such a change necessary to retain functionality -- at least for now. And for most purposes mkv is just fine anyway.

Norwell History Tools

Finally -- TRUE, Full Browsing History! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you so much! Modern browsers' disruptive insistence on instantly "forgetting" the prior visit date of a url as soon as it is visited again is SO frustrating and counter-productive -- not to mention maddeningly "controlling" -- in so many ways. Thank you for taking this information that is still stored away -- invisibly to the casual user -- for data mining purposes, and making it visible once again. Norwell History Tools has already proven very useful for me, and that is after using only the most basic features. I'll start exploring all the options soon. My suggestion: In the extension description, expand on the first sentence "Displays all browsing history sequentially as timeline" with something like, "Unlike Firefox history, Norwell history displays ALL your visits to a url, not just the latest one." To me that is the "banner" and easiest-to-understand benefit, and the one most likely to attract trial.

More Useful Than Ever! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Sorry to see people are having problems. I've had deskCut for years and it is still working great on my XP system. In fact, it's more indispensable for me than ever, given that starting with version 17 Mozilla screwed up FF for XP users such that webpage icons creating by dragging have an ugly and inappropriate generic Windows symbol instead of a FF symbol. But the icons created with deskCut still have a FF symbol as they should. Thanks, deskCut!

Ant Video Downloader

Best Downloader but Stopped Working with FF 16 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Love Ant, It's absolutely the best. But starting a day or two ago it now says Not Compatible with FF 16.0.2 (which I have had to keep due to issues I have with 17 and 18). Any workaround would be greatly appreciated. I really miss Ant. Thanks!

UPDATE 1-21-13: Thanks so much for sending the link to the previous version of Ant! Solved the problem.

Best Print Context Add-on! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's so useful having Print and Print Preview in the context menu, especially for pop-ups. There are other context-menu print/print-preview add-ons, but they make you go down yet another level from the context menu to get to the function you need. Like the last reviewer pointed out, fewer mouse movements = more convenient. Also, once you're in Print Preview it's easy to go to Page Setup if needed. Thanks.

See on Dictionary.com - Online English Dictionary

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Just what I was looking for -- something clean and simple that lets you highlight a word, right click, and then with a single additional click get a comprehensive definition. And in this case that source is the excellent Dictionary.com. Clean, simple, effective. One tiny nitpick is that it would be nice to choose the order that the selected sources (e.g., dictionary vs. thesaurus) show up in the context menu, but I was able to do this anyway with the Menu Editor add-on. Thanks!

Tab History

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Really important functionality here. I added Tab History about four months ago.

However...now I'm beginning to wonder if somewhere between FF 3.0 and 3.0.11, that functionality was added to Firefox itself?? As an experiment I disabled Tab History, but I still get full browsing history from all tabs/sessions in every tab, no matter how they were opened (e.g., "Open Link In New Tab," manually opening a new tab, etc.). On my other pc I've upgraded to FF 3.5, which says Tab History is incompatible, but again all tabs nonetheless seem to show full history from all tabs/sessions.

Wonder if I'm possibly misunderstanding something about what exactly Tab History is supposed to do? Or maybe its functionality was added directly to Firefox at some point?? Or maybe Tab History perhaps made some change to my configuration which "sticks" even when I disable it or upgrade to "non-compatible" 3.5??


Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Perfect! Does just what I want as the default, but allowing for easy customization after clicking that unobtrusive little icon. Thanks so much.

Places’ Full Titles

EXACTLY WHAT I NEEDED -- AND OOPS Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I don't see the review I posted a short time ago (first ever). Not sure if it failed or they just take awhile to get posted. If it DIDN'T fail, just wanted to add: Sorry for stupidly missing that fact that you already have screenshots. In case the first review DID fail, I'll just give a one-word re-review: BRILLIANT! Thank you!!!

Places’ Full Titles

EXACTLY what I needed!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

THANK YOU so much! The key benefit for me: I cram lots of info (site-use reminders, logon hints, etc) into descriptions of bookmarks that I know will be shunted to the right-hand drop-down portion of the toolbar. But it wasn't quite wide enough in Firefox, so the description truncation had me (shudder!) toying with the idea of going back to IE. The expanded space for history is a nice bonus, too! My only suggestion might be to change the add-in's descriptions and/or title a bit to help folks better understand exactly what it's going to provide. A couple screenshots might be useful.
