Image Search Options

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

How do you search images from your computer?

Edit: Unfortunately I have to modify my review. I have 13 entries but the "search all" functionality will not open more than 8 tabs.

Please fix.


Edit 2: Posting my configuration in hope that others can use it:
(Note that Yandex and Bing now tend to give more accurate results than Google)

BetterPrivacy

Very inconvenient user interface Rated 3 out of 5 stars

On exit this extension alerts the user that they have a number of LSOs set and asks if it should delete them.

However, it does not show which LSOs and does not allow selective deletion -- this functionality is only available during normal browsing and not when it is needed most.

Search by Image for Google

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Reload Plus

One little thing Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I am glad to see that private windows are now supported.

HotKey not configurable Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The ESC key is often used by JS code on some pages.

Toggle animated GIFs

Updated review Rated 5 out of 5 stars

PAUSE key stopped working on 1.2.1
Please check that you are not breaking functionality that people rely on.

Issues fixed, review modified accordingly.

Left to do:
1) Pull request created to support the "Pause" key
2) Add a toggle button

Since the dev is responsive, I have no problem giving it a 5-star now, knowing that the remaining issues will be addressed.

Scriptish

Hijacks and rewrites URLs even when scripts are disabled Rated 1 out of 5 stars

userscripts.org is currently inaccessible.
http://userscripts.org:8080 can be used instead
But scriptish hijacks the url and forcefully changes it to https, which does not work on those pages.

What the hell???
I'm back to GM.

Memory Restart

Reports incorrect settings Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The CPU issue appears to be fixed but now the reported memory consumption is completely wrong.

I have 2 FF windows open, one shows 707MB, the other 706MB. about:memory reports 1277MB private. Process explorer shows 1319.

Memory Restart

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Unusable on FF 26.
CPU jumps to 100% every several seconds.

Console shows this:
refreshMemory
usingOldMemoryReporter returnValue = false
refreshMemoryNew
refreshMemoryNewCallback aProcess=, aUnsafePath=resident, aKind=2, aUnits=0, aAmount=540528640, aDescription=Memory mapped by the process that is present in physical memory, also known as the resident set size (RSS). This is the best single figure to use when considering the memory resources used by the process, but it depends both on other processes being run and details of the OS kernel and so is best used for comparing the memory usage of a single process at different points in time.
refreshMemoryCommon memoryUsedInMB=515

Once I disabled this addon, the problem stopped.

Google Redirects Fixer & Tracking Remover

Breaks sites Rated 1 out of 5 stars

There are two problems with this extension:

1) It does not remove all redirects.
For example, using Google's search-by-image: http://tinyurl.com/orq5aqqThe redirect on the images are not removed.

2) More importantly, it completely breaks sites that use google search internally.
For example, https://stackexchange.com/search?q=regex
