My Reviews

Complete YouTube Saver

Silence ~ In the Eye of the Storm Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks C G! Your 4.2 update counteracts the latest waves of YouTube Monkey Wrenching.

I have found CYS to be absolutely THE most comprehensive and well designed power tool for capturing YT videos in situ. For a long time I pondered the low ratio of Reviews to Installs here and at first I wondered, are people not pleased? Could this be... Laziness in Thought?? Then I realized... This is one of those well kept secrets that you don't want anyone to know about or soon everyone will be using it; then YT's bandwidth will be saturated. And *Gobble will break it. (*Gobble = google)

However, I shall no longer acquiesce to the silence.
There are many Good YT video savers and a few Great ones each with their own unique approach. CYS exemplifies the vast difference between Good, and Great. I love the extensive configurable adaptive menu with optimized access to the full selection of resolutions and formats. For this task CYS attains the elegance of simplicity. A complete thought, focusing on doing one task perfectly, streamlined and with style. To use this tool is to experience gratitude and a sense of being indebted. Forget 5, I give this Infinite Suns out of 5.
If I could only have 1 Addon, This is THE ONE.

UnPlug

YT Protocol Change to RTMP Breaks YT Downloaders Rated 5 out of 5 stars

On Sep13-12 in the U.S. and Sep14-12 elsewhere YT's switch to the RTMP protocol broke most if not all YT downloaders including CYS, Unplug, and all others I use and checked. For now the Video DownloadHelper Addon has a working update and the Video Audio Myxa Addon works. Also Zamzar was asked to stop offering YT video saving.

Session Manager Export Tool

Great! A way to organize session data! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Thankyou Terence Caesar. Thankyou! A world of urls arise from the dead-end data format of the session graveyard to live again at last... To have this in this simple form is very useful. A toolbar button for this might be handy at some point. Works great in FF7.0.1 (palemoon Windows optimized build).

Eraser

Button Image and Size Mod Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I use the Open Clear Private Data Dialog button from the Toolbar Buttons Addon (which I somehow managed to get to clear without opening the dialog) in FF3.6.8 but in Palemoon I do not want that large library of icons. I am used to its gold padlock icon so I decided to modify the icon of Eraser (over sanitisminau) because it also eats some of the beast's Lso's. So I made a 16x16x32 gold padlock icon like the one in the Toolbar Buttons Addon image array and used it to replace Eraser's 24x24x32 button.png (transparent with white matte) from Eraser's, .xpi's, .jar's "skin" folder.
To replace Eraser's toolbar icon with a 16x16x32 (Firefox's small icon size) (transparent with white matte)
icon of your choice -
1. Open Eraser's .xpi in Winrar and drag out a copy of the Eraser.jar file from the "chrome" folder.
2. Close the .xpi and open that .jar in Winrar and go into the "skin" folder. Drop your button into the skin folder to replace the original and tell Winrar to Add and Replace files.
3. Next drag out a copy of the overlay.css file from the skin folder and edit it in a Text editor. Change the obvious 2 pairs of references to the number "24" in the overlay.css file in the skin folder of the .xpi, to 16. Then drop the .css file back into the skin folder of the open .jar and tell Winrar to Add and Replace files then close it.
4. Then open a copy of the Eraser Addon's .xpi and drop the modified Eraser.jar file into it and tell Winrar to Add and Replace files and close the .xpi.
Test - To install, first uninstall Eraser if already installed and install the modified copy. Look for your icon in the Customize dialog and drag it to your toolbar.
Icon details - You can use all 16x16 pixels. Use a 32 bit color palette. It is good to leave a pixel or 2 clear of image data on the sides. The choice of png matte color seems unimportant. The original matte was white. If you don't edit the overlay.css, any 16x16x32 button.png will work but it will be placed top justified in a 24x24 rectangle and increase the size of its host toolbar anyone using small toolbar icons (via the View - Toolbars - Customize setting).
I hope the author will add 16 and 24 bit buttons at some point to accommodate users of both large and small toolbar icons. And I hope the Lso gobbler gets hungrier! Thankyou Vikram Baghel for your work and for your decision to experiment!

Memory Fox

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Palemoon: Working great in 3.6.13 with all my FF Addons. When I installed from this page the install link failed for Palemoon when it switched to the Addons page to show progress. It said Cannot install from that location. I tried 3 times. Warn if Addons...etc. was enabled but I did not get that prompt. Adblock = Disabled. Referer = Normal. To get the xpi I copied the url into the location bar, hit Enter and it installed.

Firefox 3.6.8: Working great [the drop in ram is fantastic!] but after toggling it on / off to see the huge drop in RAM via Task Manager, right clicking on the Add to Firefox link to Copy the xpi's URL to get a copy to save locally, I got a totally blank context menu. After a couple of min. and switching tabs a few times it was ok.

Using Memory Fox defaults as I find nothing to explain what to tweak if the Events shown in the log are not as desired acc. to your site.

Also, at http://www.browsermemory.com the "Current Pale Moon Supported Updates" Download link with the Palemoon icon points to http://www.google.com/chrome?hl=en&brand=CHMI the same as the link for your " Current Google Chrome Supported Updates" Download link.

To add Memory Fox to both Firefox and Palemoon I installed the Addon in each. To use it for All Applications and/or have it Run at Startup would I enable those options from only 1 browser's Addon Options dialog? Or both? My guess is one. Will test those features later. Suggest clarifying this somewhere.

Thankyou to the person who mentioned Palemoon here! It has opened a vast door in space-time.
Thankyou to Mozilla and all the plugin developers especially those who have seen their hard work laid waste by an unstable moving target.
Thankyou to IDEVFH for this rebirth of Firefox!!
Fox meets Ram...

Copy URL +

copyurlplusOverlay.js defintions Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Please see my Previous review re: Copyurlplus-v1.3.4.xpi link for the context of this post.

Use these lines in copyurlplusOverlay.js:
case 'title':
copytext = KEYS['%TITLE%'] + KEYS['%EOL%'] + KEYS['%URL%'];
break;
case 'titlesel':
copytext = KEYS['%TITLE%'] + KEYS['%EOL%'] + KEYS['%URL%'] + KEYS['%EOL%'] + KEYS['%EOL%'] + KEYS['%SEL%'] + KEYS['%EOL%'];
break;
case 'sel':
copytext = KEYS['%SEL%'] + KEYS['%EOL%'] + KEYS['%URL%'];
break;

Joy!

Copyurlplus-v1.3.4.xpi link Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The copyurlplus-v1.3.4.xpi link at GeoApps Downloadable Files http://geoapps.com/files.shtml works with FF 3.6.8 and Palemoon. The btcorps dl was inaccessible and all other copyurl+ 1.3.4 links were just 1.3.2 + MaxVer edits, ok for Firefox 3.6.8 but not Palemoon. I needed a truly updated xpi for Palemoon current (3.6.13). The one above works in Palemoon, Firefox's Window's optimized little sister.: ) Joy!

Also, before installing it, I edited copyurlplusOverlay.js in the .jar in the .xpi for the order I prefer and to remove quotes. I made the 3 main event definitions: 1. Title URL, 2. Title URL Sel, and 3. Sel URL. I also improved the linefeed format. See my next post for the code. Editing this review lost its formatting.

Cookie Whitelist, With Buttons

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Firefox 3.6.8 Install Compatibibility Issue
Addons dialog in FF3.6.8 says it is not compatible.
I already have compatibility checking disabled.
Max Install Ver. string for 1.0.3 in install.rdf still says: maxVersion 3.5.* while at the top of this page it says Firefox 2.0 - 3.6.*
Edit the install.rdf?
I just want to Enable all cookies, Protect 2 cookies and Del ete all others with a button in 1 click. (a blocklist, and a whitelist is ok), Nothing so far will do it.
Update: I edited the install.rdf and installed it and it seems ok so far but it can't do the above.

CookieMan Context

re: Previous post - wrong Addon! Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Please disregard the preceeding post. It was accidentally posted to the wrong Addon page as a result of a login problem. It was meant for Cookie Whitelist, With Buttons 1.0.3.
I just want to allow cookies, protect 2 and delete all others with one button. Nothing I can find will do it.

CookieMan Context

Firefox 3.6.8 Install Compatibibility Issue Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Addons dialog in FF3.6.8 says it is not compatible. Max Install Ver. string for 1.0.3 in install.rdf still says:maxVersion 3.5.* I already have compatibility checking disabled.
Edit the install.rdf?
Why are there so many (often great) Addons with virtually no explanation of what they do or how they work? It seems to have become an institution here to put something up without any info at all and to keep it that way for years.

Forecastbar Enhanced

Firefox 3.6.3 Radar Ani Failure - FIX Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Firefox 3.6.3 Radar Ani Failure - FIXED
This is a fix for anyone who lost radar image updates - for me this happened in Firefox 3.6.3 after it was working fine for months.
Browser: Firefox 3.6.3 installed over 3.0.6.
Weather Addon: Forecastbar Enhanced - version 0.9.6
Weather addon and radar animation were working perfectly.
Today Jul13-10 I noticed the Radar ani had not been updated since June 4, 2010.
I found this Addon page but no solution. I do not intend to update from Forecastbar Enhanced - version 0.9.6 at the moment.
To fix the lost ani problem:
Go to Accuweather by clicking the Radar icon.
Select Animate and set Your Location using the drop lists (NOT the zoomable map at lower right!).
Right click the animation and choose Copy Image URL to copy the image url to the clipboard.
Open the weather Addon's Options and select Radar then Custom and (I left size at size 640x480).
Paste the image URL you copied into the Custom URL field and click Apply.
The Animation drop list is grayed out but no matter.
Weather Settings will update and with the mouse over the radar icon radar animation should be working.
Is this URL stable? Not sure but it can be updated.
Be sure you are getting the URL of the animated GIF or you will only get a fixed image.
This is the URL I got for North America > Canada > Toronto:
http://sirocco.accuweather.com/sat_mosaic_640x480_public/IR/isacant.gif
May the Sun Be With You!

QuickDrag

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I tried 2.0.2.1 with Firefox 2.0.0.20 (FF upgrade=downgrade! ;)
Drag/save images works with that option enabled but my FF already does that.
Re feature: "A URL will be saved instead of opened in a new tab if the Alt key is held while dropping."
Alt+Drag link fails to save link target:
When I Alt+Drag a link (to an image) I want saved, text is selected from where I click on the link to the window edge + nothing is dropped.
The only option enabled is "Use drag/drop to dl images".
Thanks.

Personal Toolbar Button

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

oops :) the star icon was from some other addon (a toolbar icons & function library) but it fails in FF2 where yours works in FF2. Thanks!

Domain Cage (SK Mod)

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This did not work for me in FF 1.5.0.1. Installed ok and button worked but nothing was blocked & no thing appeared in js console 'Messages' tab. Your mod may be incompatible with another (of many!) addons as the one by original author works. Thanks for working on this!

Personal Toolbar Button

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

In FF 1.5.0.1 it installed & works perfectly. You have expanded my vision. Thank you. I love the Star rising button!
