My Reviews

Download Statusbar

Just what I was looking for Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I tried Chrome for a bit but wound up going back to Firefox but there were some features with Chrome that I did like and one of them is how it handled downloads. The default Firefox download box is annoying but this add-on is just what I was looking for. The only suggestion that I could see would be to add the ability to have it fade out, when in full size mode after a certain time to reclaim screen space. Excellent add-on and recommended this for as a new standard for Firefox download.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.7.2.1-signed). 

Video DownloadHelper

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I really like this extension, when it works. For the most part it works exactly as stated. Every now and then it will lock up Firefox. I'll have to kill Firefox, reopen and then it works. Seems random since it happens on different web sites but once it's killed and restarted I'm able to download the video with no problems.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.7). 

gtranslate

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent! Always wanted to check unknown language and this extension makes it very easy. Before would copy text, place in a translation web site, try and determine what language it is, then translate, so many steps.

Now, highlight, secondary click and translate. It automatically figures original language and translates to mine. Although the ability to copy the translated text would be nice.

Map with Google Maps

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Must have! So nice to just highlight an address, secondary click on it, then display it's address in Google. Easy to use and does exactly what it's supposed to.

Multiple Tab Handler

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Outstanding!
Was mostly just looking for the ability of duplicating tabs but it's long list of other features are convenient to use/have available.

Xmarks Sync

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Outstanding!!! Love this program. I have several computers, now all using Firefox when I can, and love having the same listing of bookmarks and passwords available to them at all times. Makes it easy to setup a new computer and have the same bookmarks/passwords ready to go on it. Making a change with bookmarks/passwords is propagated to the other systems automatically. Highly recommend this to anyone looking to keep their bookmarks/passwords in sync with other systems.

AniWeather

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I like it's features but seems buggy. 2 things that are problematic. 1. Mouse roll-over on task bar at bottom, shows transparent background so unable to read the information unless I've got a dark background on the page that I'm visiting. 2. When clicking to view full page weather information it's missing the red circle X in the upper right corner to close it out as shown in https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/images/p/34926/1248412126. Tried clicking the general area but unable to close it.
Other then that I do like how it works and it's ease of use. Weather seems to update and is accurate for my area. Making adjustments to it is limited in what you can do but provides enough. Enjoy being able to have other areas to check on weather. I'd give higher marks if it wasn't for the above problems.

I have tried several times removing it and installing to see if that would correct the problems, but no.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.3).
