My Reviews

FEBE

Seems useless Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Seems rather overcomplicated for what it is - most people want either just a bookmark backup or *everything* backed up, with as little puzzling out as possible. Profile backup may work..it creates *something*. Profile restore, however, does nothing at all even though it says it completes successfully. Again, its very vague and I'm not even sure which profile FF is using or how to switch between them. It does look like a fairly professional addon despite is vagueness and fundamental failure to actually do its job.

Lightning

Mozilla, get a clue Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Lightning is better than Thunderbird itself, but as long as this add-on is going to be part of that half-baked email client it should at least keep up with the betas. There's no incentive to beta test TB without it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.9).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Web of Trust - WOT

The punks have ruined WoT Rated 2 out of 5 stars

WoT was the first of its kind and for several years was the web reputation system everyone else tried to imitate. Unfortunately the rankings system has been abused like everything else, and for the same reasons. Users are treating WoT the same way they treat online forums, ranking sites based on whether they agree or disagree with the content. Business owners are downranking their competition. WoT has become nothing but a contest between different agendas, with hardly any concern for the original purpose of the system.

Brief

Doesn't seem to do anything Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Had it installed since last version of FF14 came out. Doesn't see my feeds, manually selecting them with Options > Feeds doesn't work either.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.6.2). 

Lightning

I don't get it Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I keep seeing people talking about using this with Google calendars and the like but I cannot find ANY support for .ical or anything else in the options, etc. If its there its so well hidden it that it still deserves the rating I gave.

Roomy Bookmarks Toolbar

Pretty good! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Decent replacement for the ruined Multirow Bookmarks Toolbar. To see titles all the time, *uncheck* items in "Bookmarks names displaying/hiding" section and check "Multi-Row bookmarks bar" and "Show the name of bookmarks". One complaint: I get occasional slight pauses while navigating live bookmark dropdown lists with a mouse, which didn't happen with Multirow Bookmarks Toolbar.

Multirow Bookmarks Toolbar Plus

Sad, truly sad Rated 1 out of 5 stars

MultiRow Bookmarks was a must have addon. This is the opposite. Completely fails to do what its supposed to on FF 3, 4 or 5. But that's not all: to enable the addon you must accept *SPONSORED LINKS*. A once-great addon turned to junk.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0). 

CoolPreviews

Fantastic! Only one thing missing.. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

One of the best preview extensions ever. The only thing I can suggest to improve it? Live Bookmarks support. That would be incredible..you could read your feeds directly from a bookmark's drop list!
