Needs Whitelist Rated 3 out of 5 stars
This has been good at blocking video ads to date.
But this add-on can only be deactivated globally on all sites.
This add-on badly needs a one click whitelisting function to disable this add-on when for any websites where it causes issues with website functionality
Needs Improving Rated 2 out of 5 stars
Social Disconnect needs to have the ability to White List websites where needed by clicking the add-ons toolbar icon.
The way this is currently done is very inconvenient, You have to go to your Fire Add-ons the select Social Disconnect Plus Options and manually enter a websites address.
It also fails to block social media widgets on many websites.
Blocks Google Notifications Rated 1 out of 5 stars
This add-on blocks the Google Notifications from functioning when you click on the little bell shaped icon a blank box appears.
When Wallflower is disabled or uninstalled Google Notificationa work perfectly.
This add-on fails to block social widgets on many sites
Very Efficient At Thoroughly Uninstalling Add-Ons Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This is a truly impressive add-on that automatically removes all traces of any add-on you are uninstalling with 100% accuracy.
This saves you the tedious chore of going through the about:config extension entries and performing manual removal of leftover add-on entries after an uninstall.
The UI provides the proper names for all add-ons which contain a long string of characters.
I have tried other add-ons such as "Preferences Monitor" and "eCleaner"
for removing leftover add-on about:config entries, But they don't give the proper name of an add-on which has those long strings of characters and your left scratching your head and wondering what add-on those entries belong to. They also tend to miss things occasionally.
This "Clean Uninstall" hasn't made a mistake yet and also identifies leftover entries from add-ons not completely removed previously in the past.
This has add-on has well and truly deserved a 5 star rating.
Feature Request For YouTube Enhancer Plus Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Hi Maxime RF,
I love your YouTube Enhancer Plus it really is a useful add-on with all the options now available for YouTube.
But I have noticed there is one option missing that I would really appreciate having.
Please add the option to change the Aspect Ratio of the videos being played, Many older videos uploaded are NOT in the correct 16:9 Aspect Ratio for modern monitors.
I know this can be easily achieved via an add-on/User Script. The YouTube Center add-on/User Script can also add many features to YouTube and easily changes the Aspect Ratio of any videos played with just a couple of mouse clicks.
Unfortunately the YouTube Center add-on/User Script developer is now working full time and simply can't devote much time to keeping it updated or its development and as a result it's getting more and more dated and buggy over time.
I do hope you update your YouTube Enhancer Plus by adding the option to change the Aspect Ratio of videos when required.
Best YouTube Downloader Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This is the best youtube downloader I gave ever used.
Many others work for a short while, But stop functioning when youtube makes changes to the website.
You then have to wait for the add-on developer to update their add-on and then it has to go through the Firefox add-on review process, All of which takes a considerable amount of time.
I personally believe that youtube quite intentionally makes regular changes to their website as they don't want users downloading and saving videos for various reasons.
However this add-on circumvents the tactics used by youtube by sending your request for a download to his 3rd party website which is very rapidly updated in response to any youtube changes.
This add-on developer has successfully found the soloution to this annoying youtube issue which occurs on a regular basis.
Since I installed YouTube downloader Plus there hasn't been one single instance of me not being able to download youtube content in the 6 months I have been using it.
This add-on developer truly deserves a 5 star rating for this add-on.
Please do the right thing and reward the developer with some donations to help fund the costs involved in maintaining his website and providing this unique service.
Needs Easier Whitelisting Of Sites Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Overall this is a very good add on for improving your web privacy and security.
But Smart HTTPS would be much improved if there was an easier way to add websites to its whitelist, I would like to be able to achieve whitelisting of websites by simply right clicking the toolbar icon and selecting add website/domain to whitelist on the infrequent occasion this is necessary.
Best Video Downloader I Have Used Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I have installed a great many Firefox Add-Ons for downloading videos, But in the past the ones I tried have had various irritating issues.
Many can't download from http://www.dailymotion.com/au For some reason lots of video downloaders have issues with that particular website.
Some others try and promote their other unwanted products via their Add-On.
Then there are those which repeatedly ask you to specify your downloads folder location.
Many other video downloaders don't clear the list of available downloads when you have left the website and require you to do that manually.
This video downloader Add-On is the best I have used to date as it works on all the websites I have visited.
This Add-On truly deserves the 5 star rating I have given it.
No Future For Classic Theme Restorer Rated 5 out of 5 stars
To all those using this Add-On to remove the much disliked Firefox Chrome clone style UI.
Be warned that at some unknown future date this Add-On will be unusuable.
This is due to the fact that Mozilla's Firefox developers have announced plans to completely strip out all Firefox Themes at some unknown time in the future.
This is a part of As part of Mozilla's "Go Faster" initiative for Firefox, the company is removing features that aren't used by many and require a lot of technical effort to continually improve.
The first two features to get the axe are tab groups and complete themes which change the whole Firefox UI.
When Firefox switches to the new engine and removes xul which Classic Theme Restorer depends on, This Add-On will be unusable.
Doesn't Automatically Remove Videos From Download List Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This is a very good Add-On as it has many useful tweaks for the Firefox Download Manager.
But the "Automatically remove downloads from list after they complete" function doesn't work. The files remain until manually removed.
I'm using Download Manager Tweak installed in Firefox 42 on Mac OS X 10.11.1 El Capitan.
Two Annoying Faults Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Flash Video Downloader is a really good Add-On for downloading Videos of ALL types.
The name is misleading though as it can handle the downloading of many more video formats apart from FLV.
It even easily downloads video from http://www.dailymotion.com/au which many other downloaders have difficulty with.
The only two faults with this Add-On are:
1. When downloading high quality video it
always asks for the location of your
2. When the toolbar icon is clicked to
select a video to download the icon
and font sizes are way too small and it
very difficult to read the details of each
This happens regardless of you using
compact or full mode.
If the developer could pleas fix these issues I will happily upgrade my rating of Flash Video Downloader to 5 stars.
Element Hiding Needs Improvements Rated 4 out of 5 stars
uBlock Origin is a very good Firefox Add-On. It not only blocks ads it can also be used to block Scripts, block Domains, Element Hiding and its Pop Up blocking is excellent.
uBlock Origin has far more features than Adblock Plus while using far less memory.
It is an effective and reliable replacement for multiple other Add-Ons such as "AdBlock Plus" "NoScript","Request Policy" or "Policeman"
However there is one aspect of uBlock Origin that needs improving is the Element Hider.
If the element you choose to hide is present in multiple places on the same web page the Element Hider will only conceal it in the original place that an Element Hiding rule was created for.
It really needs more flexible and broader Element Hiding capability such as hide this element on all similar pages on this domain and the ability to hide similar Elements or Parent Items.
At this point I have to use another Add-On called "Remove It Permanently" with uBlock Origin to achieve satisfactory Element Hiding.
Better Than Adblock Plus, Needs Some Improvments Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I really like this addon it can do so much more than Adblock Plus and has a much, much lower memory/CPU usage. Firefox is speedier and more responsive on the vast majority of websites when using uBlock Origin.
However there is room for improvement,
for example if a 3rd-party filter is blocking something on a web page, then it is possible to open the uBlock Origin Network Request Log and identify the likely culprits via their colour coding.
When you click a suspected entry a pop up menu will identify which filter in a 3rd-party list it is.
It would be really convenient to be able to disable that troublesome filter or create an exception rule from that pop up menu.
The second area which needs improvement is the My Filters List,
You cant type in a search term and click find this item or similar items in the listings of your My Filters List which can grow rather lengthy over time.
If the developer could please include these improvements in a future version as soon as possible, uBlock Origin would be much easier to use.
uBlock Origin: Really Good At Blocking Ads & Pop Ups/Redirects Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I don't know if you have read the uBlock Origin Wiki:
You should be aware that to block Pop Ups/Redirects occurring on any website, Just click the uBlock Origin icon on your toolbar and look carefully at the Menu and in the bottom you will see 3 small icons. One of which looks like 2 overlapping sheets of paper.
Just click on it to blockPop Ups/Redirects which happen on that website, You will need to do that for every website where this happens.
I personally use this all the time and have found that uBlock Origin blocks far more Pop Ups/Redirects than Adblock Plus with its Pop Up Add on installed, Even when you create ad blocking rules Adblock Plus still often fails to block them. Particular those initiated by Flash and other Plug Ins.
Ublock Origin is far better at blocking them and it has many other features that Adblock Plus lacks. It's also much lighter on Memory/CPU usage.
Web pages load faster and Firefox is a lot faster and more responsive when using uBlock Origin.
Can't Set Default Downloads Location Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This is one of the best video downloaders I have ever used, It finds and downloads the videos on almost every site that I have used it on.
The only gripe I have is that every single time you wish to download a video it asks where you want to save it to.
It really does get annoying having to set your download location every single time.
It would be great if you could simply set your preferred download location in the preferences and NOT be asked again as to where you want your videos downloaded to.
If this option was include in a future update, this would be just about perfect.
I'm using Firefox 36.0.1 on Mac Os X 10.10.2
Firefox 32 Compatible Version Rated 5 out of 5 stars
To find the latest version of Similar Sites Version 2.1 which was released on October 1st 2014.
On this page simply scroll down to Version Information and click see Complete Version History and install Similar Sites Version 2.1
I have it installed in Firefox 32.0.3 used on Mac OS X 10.9.5 Mavericks and so far it works perfectly with NO compatibility issues.
Best Full Screen Add-On Ever Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This by far the best Full Screen Add-On I have ever tried when using Firefox 26 on Mac OS X Mavericks
This hides absolutely every thing in Full Screen, NO Navigation Bar, NO Tab Bar and NO Title Bar.
To get those bars back when you need them just hover your cursor at the top of your screen and they will drop down again temporarily for your usage and disappear again afterwards.
NO other Full Screen Add-On completely hides everything. Simply the best.
Great Theme Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Many thanks to jasiekmarc for very quickly fixing the click to activate plugins issue which I mentioned in my previous review.
I do hope you continue to keep this theme updated to work with all future versions of firefox.
Most themes are not compatible with the latest version of firefox or my Mac OS X operating system and there is currently very few to choose from.
Very Nice Theme Rated 4 out of 5 stars
The macfox3 theme renders well and looks very professional on Firefox 23.0.1, I am using it on my new desktop Mac OS X 10.8.5 and have only one issue with this theme.
When you use the Click To Activate function for Flash and other plugins the symbols you would see and click on are not there, There is a small text message instead. The plugins are activated when you click the text message. I do hope this minor issue is corrected when this theme is next updated.
Display of Filter List Too Small Rated 3 out of 5 stars
A problem with this add-on is that the Filter List display is too small.
Once more than a few filters are in the list you can't view them all and you are unable to review all of your filters in the list and any problematic filters can't be identified.
The display of the filter list badly needs to be changed so we can see everything in our filter list
