Adblock Plus

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Very strange experience. I did not like Ghostery and wrote the review below. All my Ghostery reviews got deleted and even the one for this add-on. Honestly, it is hard for me to trust Mozilla after all this Here the deleted review for adblock plus:.

Still The Best Rated 5 out of 5 stars

There is no alternative to Adblock Plus. Here you can create your own rules and this makes it very mighty. I have been using it for very many years without problems.

Only days ago I tried Ghostery and based on my experience I wrote a review that got deleted by a Ghostery developer because it did not meet his expectations. But compared to ADP Ghostery simply did not meet my expectations and to not allow me to write about my experience says a lot already ;-)

But you can see from my many other reviews - if I like an add-on I tell it and if not I tell it too and tell why. Pretty simple but the first and only time at Ghostery not accepted.

Anyhow - if you click "Open blockable items" at ADP and look at the list then there is not much left what YOU cannot block up to your liking. It is not up to others what you are allowed to block. And this makes a very big difference.

There is one thing I would like to add. In the add-on description you will find:

"Starting with Adblock Plus 2.0 there is an option in Filter Preferences to allow some non-intrusive advertising."

I see it like this. ABP is extremely powerful. Not only based on the options of ABP but based on the number of users. This creates a very big disadvantage for the ad-market that often helps to keep sites alive. So good to have no ads but good to have many sites ... not? So use it with care or you might kill some of them and not only the ads ;-)

UAControl

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Perfect. Unlike others it keeps the settings and I can even set it for certain sites.

ColorfulTabs

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Great while it worked! I write the bugs here since in the forum of this add-on you cannot register a new user.

FF24 - does not work anymore with TreeStyleTab. All tabs below a node have the same color as the node.

and

It should not overwrite the settings in the usercrome.css. If you have text color settings there this add-on just overwrites them with black. It can and should change the background of the tab but not the text color of the tab.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (20.1).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

UnloadTab

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

If somebody has the problem that dimming unloaded tabs does not work anymore with UnloadTab and TreeStyleTab then add this to the userchrome.css

tab[pending] {
opacity: .4 !important;
}

Instead of .4 you can take a different value.

Find In Tabs

Perfect - Should be standard in Firefox Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Long time I have been looking for such a function. Installed it on FF16 and it runs with endless other add-ons without any problems. Of course you have to increase the allowed FF version. But just look in other comments how to do it.

Hope the developers will come back and activate this add-on again by changing the allowed FF version. But until then it is easy to do it yourself.

Location Bar Enhancer

Perfect Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great add-on and good documentation!

UnloadTab

Great extension when it worked Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I still give it a rating of 5 even if it does not work. But if it works it is a 5.

This was a great extension and recently I upgraded Firefox to 21 and now I cannot use this anymore. What does not work is the dim tab function with Tree Style Tab. It works for the main tabs but as soon as I click on a node all tabs below this node are not dimmed anymore (but correctly they seem not to be loaded just not dimmed).

To me this function is very important and I did not find a different extension for this. So I downgraded Firefox to version 16 again. My only hope is that the great developer has a fix for this great extension.

P L E A S E H E L P !

Tree Style Tab

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It seems not to work with FF 20. But look at the developer site and download the latest version there. This works for me.

This add-on is simply great. Because of it it is impossible for me to move to a different browser.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.14.2012122901).  This user has 3 previous reviews of this add-on.

Flash Video Downloader - Full HD Download

Great Rated 5 out of 5 stars

What I like most is that it shows the file sizes and gives you so an easy overview. I replaced the Video DownloadHelper with it. There the file display is not so good. Okay, the latter does more things. But if you don't need them this here is a more than perfect replacement.

Autofill Forms

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I have been trying to use this extension for a long time. But I have to say the GUI is the biggest scrap I have ever seen. And I write this with more than 40 years of almost daily IT experience.

Google Translator for Firefox

GREAT - Why did I look for it so late? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very helpful add-on. Did not know that anything useful like this exists. Thank you very much for it!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.0.3). 

Tab Mix Plus

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It creates a tab chaos with my Tree Style Tab whenever I start the browser. The hierarchy gets destroyed. Since I uninstalled TMP the problem is gone. Tried to write about this problem in the forum. But at registration I get the message I am a well known spammer and cannot register. I have no business and so I have no need to create spam. Not even the forum works for me :-(((

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.0.3). 

Tab Utilities Lite

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great extension. I use now this instead of Tab Mix Plus because Tab Mix Plus created endless problems with Tree Style Tab - I always ended up with a tab mess. The whole tab hierarchy got destroyed. With this extension there are no problems at all.

I have tried the full version Tab Utilities too but THERE is room for improvement. Could not make the tab colors to work in a correct way for instance.

But this extension here works so far perfectly. Thank you very much for it!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.5). 

TabGroups Menu

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Does exactly what I need. This should be standard in Firefox.

Did not find problems in normal use. But I did not test everything that might be possible.

If I could assign shortcut keys so that I can jump directly to a certain group this would be great.

The keys ctrl + ` in Firefox itself is very poor since you just can go from one group to the next or with shift plus the keys above back again.

TabGroups Manager

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This project seems to be dead. None of the developers sites are online.

I have endless problems in combination with Tree Style Tab. Often I get a new version of the tab display in respect of hierarchy. Sometimes many tabs are missing and show only up again when I restart the browser.

A good idea - just does not work as expected.

Update:

In the meantime I have been using TabGroups Manager. All the problems with Tree Style Tab are gone for me...so far ;-)

Cookies Manager+

Perfect Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I always lost settings from charts and logon information. With this add-on I just set the expiration date of those cookies to the remote future and nothing gets lost anymore.

Thank you very much for this helpful add-on!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5.1). 

Line Marker

It works even with FF 13 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

You can make any add-on being accepted by FF easily . Go into about:config and add for your FF version (mine is 13.0) the entry

extensions.checkCompatibility.13.0

This is a boolean value. Set it to false.

If you upgrade to a higher FF version just add another entry with the new version information.

For me the Line Marker is a great add-on. I use it with the great add-on UnMHT where you can save webpages or a selection out of it in the compressed mht form. The marked text will be saved as marked with it.

Dcurrency

Great Until 0.4.1 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I still give 5 Stars since I hope that this will be fixed and this addon is great. But with the latest version 0.4.2 I get the wrong data when I use Yahoo.

Fix for me - downgrade to 0.4.1

Just as update. In the meantime I talked to the developer and we found the difference. Yahoo uses country specific layouts. At my area nothing got changed by Yahoo and so the 0.4.1 still works but the new version not.

selectivecookiedelete

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great add-on. Does what it should do.

Would like to have an easy keep/delete button in the task bar.

On the developers list there are many other interesting things. Hope so much that he will find time.

Update Scanner

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very good. It does not only show you what page changed but even what text changed there. I just have to read the yellow marked text - perfect. Saves me a lot of time.
