My Reviews

Fast Tab Switcher

Really great for productivity! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on is great for finding tabs and bookmarks quickly. I usually don't have a lot of tabs, but this still allows me to use the keyboard to easily switch between them.

A couple of minor things could be added for perfection:
- Icons for tabs/bookmarks (optional since it might cost more cpu)
- Ability to close tab, for instance using Del, with optional confirmation dialog
- Ability to close several tabs, use Shift/Ctrl to select and press Del, with confirmation.

Paste and Go Key

Works like a charm. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great time-saver. I've tried the other "Paste & go" extension but it didn't work and all others rely on mouse usage. This one seems to do what's it's supposed to, no fuss.

Supertab

Very promising but flaky implementation. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

When I found this it looked like a perfect option for me, I loved the ctrl+tab list in old Opera, and this seemed to work just like it.

It seemed to work after install but now I notice a lot of strange behavior, and hangs when ctrl+tab'ing and was forced to uninstall.

It's not been updated since 2014 which could explain it.

InstantFox Quick Search

Completely broken in FF48 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

With FF48 and InstantFox enabled it is no longer possible to press Enter to load URL in the bar, often the browser just jumps to the site instead of searching, and lots of other small bugs.

I still love the add-on and wouldn't want to give it up, I really need this functionality, so please fix this.

Cookie Monster

Wonderful add-on, a real life-safer for those who care a bit about privacy! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I came to use Firefox from Opera, which had a really nice cookie management system, where you could quickly whitelist sites you accepted cookies from. So a way to do the same in FF was something I really needed, and I found it in Cookie Monster.

I love that you can quickly right-click on the page to change the settings for a site, and that I can temporarily accept cookies from sites that refuse to work without cookies (silly web-devs!).

I also love that all cookies can quickly be deleted if a site is moved into the blacklist.

The only thing missing is the option to have CM on the Tools menu since I use the keyboard a lot when surfing so having the same options as the context menu there, like Adblock Plus does, would be a super bonus!

Now with the latest version that once again works in Firefox 45, I can once again say this is a must-have add-on.

1-Click YouTube Video Download

Latest update, no download Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The download link is gone in the latest version. Too bad, it used to work perfectly. I have to go back to Keepvid until this is fixed :(

CookieShield

Simple and works fine, needs a few more features Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The add-on does the job it's supposed to fine, but needs a couple more features to be perfect:
- Right click context menu
- Keyboard shortcut to access and control permissions
- Tools Menu options, so one could use Alt+T to set options for domain
- Not force use of button, some do not like to clutter the address bar with tons of plugin buttons.

InstantFox Quick Search

Thanks for a great add-on! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

And thanks a lot for the update, works like a charm! :)

Customizable Shortcuts

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great add-on and a must for those of us who like the use the keyboard and customize what keys we use. Personally I come from Opera and I want as much as the same keyboard shortcuts as possible. No idea why FF does not offer this ability by default.

I just wish it could be accessed on the tools menu but that's a minor issue :)

Drag-Select Link Text

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Brilliant add-on and I have no idea why FF does not have this behavior be default.

Speed Dial

I love this add-on! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Couldn't use Firefox without it.

It would be perfect if it had support for transparent dials, otherwise it works like a charm!

Adblock Plus

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Surfing the web with adblock is wonderful.
Congratulations on winning the court cases!

Dark Fox

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Simple and no-fuss, love the logo.

Add Bookmark Here ²

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent little add-on that allows better organization of bookmarks by easily placing them into the correct folder, instead of having to use the fiddly default FF behaviour.

Active developer that fixes bugs as they occur, very much appreciated.

µBlock

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This add-on does it's job well and blocks ads just fine, and has support for lots of custom URLs for blocking as well as country-specific ones.

However, it needs some work on the UI. I do not want a button on the toolbar, so there needs to be another way to enable/disable on a per-site basis, using the keyboard, like for ABP, where the option is in the Tools menu.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.8.2.1-signed). 

Extended Statusbar

Very good coming from Opera but minor issues Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I love to use this add-on as it gives me a lot more information on page load speeds and progression than Firefox standard.

However, a minor problem is I like to have it disappear after 2 seconds, but this will cause FF to redraw the page, and it messes up video playback some times. For instance you can see this on Google+, where video are impossible to play. Otherwise a really nice add-on!

Add Bookmark Here ²

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Wonderful for me coming from Opera which had this function. The default Firefox adding of bookmarks is messy.

All-in-One Sidebar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Coming from Opera to Firefox this is a must-have, very useful add-on.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.24.1-signed). 

InstantFox Quick Search

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I wanted to find something to replicate the autocomplete in address bar search like in Opera - and this plugin looks like it.

It works but the options menu is broken, it doesn't close with OK and 'Add' closes it. It's usable but wonky, but I'll stick with it and hope for an update.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.8.9.1-signed). 

Cookie Monster

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Brilliant addon - allows you to easily and with a single click manage a whitelist of site you accept cookies from. No more do you need to worry about sites you don't trust tracking your browsing.

A must-have for me since I migrated from Opera and missing the site manager.
