My Reviews

Lazarus: Form Recovery

Very impressed Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It preserves form content across computer restart (not sure how long it keeps stuff, i think the grace period is a week or something). One click and it brings the entire contents of a form (or even multiple versions). Basically it looks like you can write a wall of text on a forum, crash your machine without having saved in any way, reboot and pick up where you left off :)

Provider for Google Calendar

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Wouldn't it be possible to integrate this into Lightning proper (as an opt-in option or something) rather than developing separately?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.32). 

Saved Password Editor

One of those addons where you think the dev has read your heart's desires Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Fantastic idea. No more need for chasing after passwords by asking the site to provide a password reset via an email link for little-used accounts :)

Element Hiding Helper for Adblock Plus

I LOVE THIS Rated 5 out of 5 stars

As said below, Wladimir Palant is a genius :)This gets rid of all those awkward fake-toolbar type things that clutter web pages at the top or bottom of the page, stay fixed there when you scroll and attempt to get you to "share" stuff (e.g on some blog platforms such as over-blog)

SearchReset

Nice job, very clean Rated 4 out of 5 stars

worked as advertised, after I removed another addon that was setting Ask search as the new tab page as well.

keyword.URL Hack!

great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works beautifully for me. I couldn't live without the dual search and awesome bars. I work with multiple Firefox profiles, and the "empty" one with default settings and no addons (for other users of my computer) feels rather lacking...
I will also point out that it does not interfere in any way i've noticed with one of my other favourites, the "Add to Search bar" addon.
Another way some people may have got round this loss of functionality may have been plain "keywords" (à la chrome) which can be accessed and modified in the "Manage Search Engines" menu of your search bar.

Blender

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I will echo others by saying this, but my Blender-ized user agent is still set as Firefox 19... I'll check for updates of course but if the addon stays like this it kind of misses the point, although I really like the idea. kudos to the dev.The Panopticlick utility on the EFF website is fooled by the user agent, but bear in mind that if you have a lot of addons, they make you more unique too. I have 10-20 usually, and apart from when I was using NoScript, this made me unique nearly always.

Panopticlick can be found and tested here: https://panopticlick.eff.org/

DblClicker

Perfect Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Lovely idea. I'm addicted to ctrl+click, so this is heaven :)

LeechBlock

Perfect! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love it! I must have reduced the time I waste on computers by about 80 or 90 percent! (Although instead, I waste time following the link on the "page blocked by Leechblock" page to sign up and post a review lol)

This is why we're all on Firefox, the amount of fine-grained control some of these addons offer is just mind-boggling. This beast allows for various degrees of blocking lists of websites (such as news sites or forums you may spend all night reading), offering a full block or blocking for a certain amout of time per hour/day/whatever. You can even set passwords to stop yourself unblocking websites, hide the places you'd reach the options from and so on. It seems that you could even block a bunch of websites and then literally prevent yourself from ever being able to reach them again!
Fantastic job and *chapeau bas* from France (:
