Pdf Creator

didnt work, uninstalled Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Unfortunately I received a blank page. Did not work. Uninstalled.

iMacros for Firefox

rudeness predominates commuity forum Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I spent over 2 days reading forum posts, to try to get a simple macro working. No Answers. What I did observe was repeat rudeness by this community member- chivracq, Astoundingly rude and turned me away after 2 days.
-----
I do not know scripting. I read the FAQ, the wiki, watched tutorials.
But my simple need (add 2 user defined variables together = third variable), I could not solve. The example in the ADD did not have this simple/common calculation. The EVAL command sample was so complicated, it lost me. It appears you need to basic JavaScript or VisualBasic Script to really use this addon.

My need was a basic calculation using 3 user defined variables:. The input variables were defined/declared + set but still I could not get the calculation to work. (This did not work -- SET page_total = page_start + page_increment)
I tried many options, testing to try to potluck the syntax. None worked.

Distill Web Monitor (formerly AlertBox)

great addon but upgrades always causes some problem Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This is a great addon. But sadly most upgrades there is always some "new" problem to resolve. Would be great if new issues were at least owned by the developer.

Secondly, you cannot save defaults for new watchlist items. It does get tiresome entering the same thing over and over again.

Thirdly, the changes in the last year has reduced UI ease of use. I find I am scrolling more to do actions, and things are not where I had intuited (where before they were).

Fourthly, at least once a week, maybe every 3 day, Distill will stop processing watchlists. No apparent reason. If I boot down Fx and boot up it will start working again. But its reliability has dropped significantly with recent upgrades. The first year i used it, it was brilliant. Never saw any of this nonsense.

Most times the developer has not helped resolve the issues that I am observing purely in use of Distill Addon
e.g. told me to upgrade RAM to sort the performance problem. In fact I had to change my save history settings as Distill increases the volume of history significantly. THis was key, plus I had a corrupt places.sqlite. Nothing to do with RAM.

e.g. The latest issue in 1.5.6, in new watchlist item, there is a large space under actions. Which means you have to scroll to save. If you downgrade to older version it goes away and then reupgrade, it stayed away for a 1 day. The developer's reply is "his addon is fine". [Fx 45.0.1./Distill 1.5.6]

I use to rave about this addon. Now I dont as I would hope things improve not degrade with upgrades.

Bookmarks Favicon Images

wonderful and very helpful when upgrade looses my favicons Rated 5 out of 5 stars

hello
thankyou for a lovely addon. Sorry I could not find a support link anywhere. I checked the addonpage and addon manager page.

This looks to be great to help when each upgrade i loose favicons, and the other addon favicon does not help. So now I can store my own and have a bit more comfort they are backed up and easily retried. I will pop these tricky ones in the folder option the addon provides. Thankyou.

Thankyou

thankyou for your reply. No worries, Co-rel showed me how on Fx Support. Very Simple it turned out to be.

also found this very helpful online generator of favicons (upload an image and outputs a favicon)
http://www.favicon-generator.org/
--
just one thing -- the favicon showing my bookmark toolbar, via this agreat addon, is not showing in the bookmark manager. And for simple people like me, that does get a bit confusing. I use bookmark manager all day.

Edit Bookmark Plus

I love it! fixes many add new bookmark glitches Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This addone, appears to fix the many glitches with saving a new bookmark in version 45. Plus gives some further access to bookmark name/url. Nice.

Thankyou.

I also have Change Bookmark Recent Folder List Length 1.3.1 addon installed. Both work well together. Would be wonderful if i had 1 addon that extended my add bookmark popup rather than 1. Maybe this eature could be added.

Change Bookmark Recent Folder List Length

superb. makes bookmarking so much simpler Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I love it. I have been wanting this for a long time.

Would be even super fantstico, if I could pin my top 3 folders to be first, then my next 15 as per the addon.

The link to support is taking me somewhere funny. I dont understand the page at all. And it di dnot accept my valid credentials. You need a support alternative when something new is being forced on users.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.1). 

Temporary Bookmarks

great idea but not working Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I dont use facebook so i cannot access your support.

1) There is no right click "Add to Temporary Bookmarks"" I use menu wizard addon too so maybe there is a conflict
2) I need to be able to change name from Temporary Bookmarks to blank to save space on my Bookmark Toolbar. It does not allow this as keeps resetting title = Temporary Bookmarks on reboot

fineBook

was great but latest version means need to uninstall Rated 1 out of 5 stars

was great. simple. sure could improve UI but worked.
now i get annoying OSX notification Firefox message EVERY page opens and NO preference setting to turn OSX notifications off. AND it is not even using the standard OSX notification centre for firefox to control what is shown/not shown. Absolutely apalling piece of code to deploy as is.

Distill Web Monitor (formerly AlertBox)

absolutely stunning! will be truelly awesome when mac osx app released Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Add-on enables me to receive pop-up notifications of changes on any web-site. Wow!
Apparently IOS app is on its way too.

Excellent FAQ. Read it all. Very easy setup.
What is missing, is samples of common use-cases
e.g. search 3 websites for a list of items (say 10 things on my list), daily
e.g. search 1 website and tell me all the new items added in category x or meeting xyz criteria
e.g. for x monitor, send me a popup notification checking every 15minutes (if I am online) AND email me when I am offline, every 3hrs for the same thing. So I do not get email notifications when online.

I get so tired of checking the pages, so this add-on is a dream come true for me.

Heads up: Does involve a cost if your wanting to do very frequent checks e.g. every minute as the number checks on free account will be quickly exceeded. Free allows 3 monitors/30email notifications. I will sign-up for year though as it is that good.

But it is available. That is the biggest plus.

Easy App Tabs

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

simple and does not impact performance.

I had to remove TabMix Plus as it kept making memory >80% on my fresh install yosemite 10.10.3.

this add-on had no impact on performance

Video DownloadHelper

Keeps getting better! Support Amazing Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The new VDH shocked me. Major change and could not work how to do the things I could do very easily with 1 step.

But once I worked out the configure option (found on my add-on list) and popped my icon to no dropdown (under appearance) (you can get to everything by the clicks top screen when you click the icon)...then as good as gold... Back to 1 click action.

Sure.. the new popup is uglier(loud) and confusing but VDH is functionally better now. I even get OSX notifications. Performance 10.10.3 fresh install v38fx not impacted at all. Wow!

Support is unbelievable fantastic for the given huge volume user base. I cannot believe this dude replies directly in googlegroups. Thank goodness he does as VDH is critical for me.

Menu Wizard

absolutely stunning! replaces Menu Editor and 100% better Rated 5 out of 5 stars

hello, can you please add a support email, as the mozillerine forum keeps giving me errors and I do not understand the language on the blog.. and all i want to do is ask a few simple questions. How do I add this new bookmark contextual item e.g. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1063122

----
wow!
and finally can customize Bookmarks Context Menu

only 1 tiny thing
...was freaking a bit until I found the helper hint

Hint! In Firefox, you can't scroll while using drag &drop : to scroll when dragging items, move the mouse to the top/bottom/left/right of the screen...

Maybe try get the helper hint on right click when newly installed... as I did not know what to do for a few weeks.. until I had time to hunt around a bit...

AutoFormer

Wonderful but stopped working in v45 Rated 2 out of 5 stars

was great but no longer working in v45 for certain pages.
---
Finally an add-on can do this simple functionality. For me its critical.. Its design is primitive, but for me that is simply showing its in early editions.

Can you please at least inform us what is the name of the sqlite database (DOM) storage you are using to store the form details in, so then we can import existing records if we know sqlite.

Ideally this add-on follow the same brilliant development of session manager http://sessionmanager.mozdev.org/ but for complete forms (aka profiles) rather than an fx session (so we have a list view of the forms, or right click or hot key, preferences, import/export etc...

It has amazing potential. I give it 5 stars as ive been waiting for this for 3 solid years... thankyou thankyou thankyou

Auto Form

Brilliant - for 1 form entry only Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Brilliant.
yes it is in french I think, but it does what it needs to do without understanding all the preferences written in non-english language.

I added both the save and inject into (red arrow) to my add-on bar, and has saved me so much retyping.

Next: I would love to be able to "save the form", so then the add-on is not limited to 1 form only. so I could "save the form", exactly like I "save a browser session" using session manager. It needs this functionality to be a wow wow!

But it is so far the ONLY add-on that does this basic functionality. I tested 9 others that said they did but they didnt. Most were geared for unexpected crash. I just want to save and retrieve form details so I dont have to retype.

Tabs On Bottom

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

causes visual problem with bookmark bar. so there is a line.
i removed.
and installed the other one which also supports the "not title bar"feature in fx29. other one called (tab on bottom australias)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.1-signed). 

Tab Utilities

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

lots of bugs.
even basic tab functionality
causes standarf Fx29 to have pin not able to be unpinned.

Tabs on Bottom (Australis)

spot-on! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

mavericks 10.9
tried the other "bottom tab" add-on, and that one makes the bookmark bar off a bit visually e.g. leaves a line...

this one is smart, and simply just-perfect!

works nicely with Fx9 title bar OFF feature -- if you have title bar OFF, then the window red/orange/green to run into first icon a bit... so i popped the zoom function first and it fits perfectly.
thankyou

Lazarus: Form Recovery

clunky - auto name takes URL so hard to see Rated 1 out of 5 stars

very clunky - removing it. all saves of the form are to the same name as uses URL rather than time or first 10 characters of a field --- , so if you are saving the same form, you cannot tell the differences as it cuts off after so many characters, so they are all named the same.

1 star as does not respond to support email. why have it?

Add Bookmark Here ²

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

nice concept but has bug where it does not detect there is a bookmark (you have a bookmark, as you just used your bookmark to open the web page) then you go to move it to another folder, and it creates a NEW bookmark.

that is very cumbersome. so i think it is a bug.

Premiumize.me

Addon words disappear / Layout could be improved Rated 3 out of 5 stars

hi, it worked great and now it doesnt. 1) the popup is blank. No words. I have reinstalled addon. Rebooted Fx. Reverted to my old profile and it came back again, then it disappeared again on that profile too. 2) chrome extensions layout is better. too much scrolling to get to your desired options in fx. Perhaps consider allowing user to set options they most use to show in popup. thankyou
