My Reviews

Open In Chrome

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works as advertised. I wish it had the context menu setting selected from the start, but that's just a quibble.

TitleCase

Excellent add-on! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a very powerful tool for editing fields on websites. On a sales site I use, I like to uppercase particular words/phrases in my item descriptions, and this add-on makes it super-simple.

Chrome View

Oblierates settings of other add-ons Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This extension somehow obliterates add-on settings after restart of the browser in Firefox 21. I narrowed it down to this extension and even re-tested it. I got no response to this report from this extension's developers.

FireFTP

2.0.10 not working Rated 3 out of 5 stars

2.0.10 not working. Previous versions did. Getting an error after connecting to a site. Not happening when I use my separate FTP client. Doesn't seem to be anywhere to report this problem, or else I would.

Here's the error:

Error message= NS_ERROR_ABORT: Component returned failure code: 0x80004004 (NS_ERROR_ABORT) [nsIOutputStream.write]URL= chrome://fireftp/content/js/connection/baseProtocol.jsLine Number= 1031I went back to 2.0.7 and it works.

Edit to respond to Mime:
Files are displaying in the directory (list on right), but I couldn't upload a file to it. I don't know if refresh helps. I'm using 2.0.7 right now.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.10).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Tab Mix Plus

Open new tab from address bar no longer working (UPDATED) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've noticed a new problem with this add-in. With the previous version, when entering a URL into the address bar, a new tab with the website would open, as that's what I have set under Events|Tab Opening. But now, it opens in the current tab. Very frustrating.

Update: This turned out to be a problem with a recent update of URL Fixer. With that disabled, Tab Mix Plus works great! Sorry for jumping to conclusions!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.0). 

TinyUrl Creator

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Since my last review, I've been seeing the same character garbling problem others have been seeing. This *really* needs to be fixed.

Firebug

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A totally must-have extension for web developers. Anyone who develops without it is driving blind, needlessly.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.0b7). 

CustomizeGoogle

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great extension, but sometimes the stream search feature exhibits poor performance -- not sure if it's the extension or Google.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.72). 

Image Zoom

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a very useful, must-have extension.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.1). 

Download Statusbar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A fantastic extension!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.6.3). 

ColorZilla

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

As a web development, I'd be lost without this tool with respect to color management.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0). 

MeasureIt

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A great extension. Very useful for web development!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.8). 

Locationbar²

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very rarely does an extension blow me away with its usefulness. This extension is incredible!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.3). 

Remove Cookie(s) for Site

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This extension has proved very useful for web development purposes.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.51). 

Tab Scope

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Pretty good. Would be excellent if concerns in other reviews were addressed.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.2.8). 

Unhide Passwords

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I really like this extension, but it seems to miss an obvious feature -- the ability to turn the password hiding off and on in an overall way, such as via a toolbar button. Doing it on the fly by double-clicking the field could get too tedious, especially if I take my laptop to a public area. And changing the setting in the options is too tedious as well. I want a quick button for this toggling.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.3). 

TinyUrl Creator

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This extension has proved very handy very quickly.

shortxt - Post longer Tweets on Twitter

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very useful extension for Twitterers!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3). 

FireFTP

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a must-have extension. It's very feature-rich, but straightforward to use at the same time -- this is a development feat.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0). 

Safari View Win

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It works, but it would be better with a toolbar button and the ability to find where the Safari browser is installed without the user having to enter that location in manually.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4).
