My Reviews

Customizable Shortcuts

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I would give this a five-star rating if A) there was a way to export a list of all the shortcuts and B) this extension was updated for FF 9.0 and beyond. :-)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.9). 

Personal Menu (Personal Firefox Button)

Good, but needs updating for FF 6 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is a great add-on but it has some compatibility issues in Firefox 6.0. It prevents the actual drop-down button menu from functioning. I disabled it and now it works fine.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.0.5). 

Youtube MP3 Podcaster

Useful, but buggy Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This extension performs a useful function, but has two major problems:
1. For some reason, it won't download videos/mp3s unless the toolbar button is actually on the toolbar...the controls underneath the video don't work without the button. I'm not sure if this is a bug or a compatibility issue with other add-ons.
2. The toolbar button is larger than the standard icon size, so it makes the toolbar take up more space on the screen. It would be great if it were scaled down a little bit.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.3.8). 

What's That Preference?

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Absolutely brilliant idea for an addon. The only way it would be better is if it were restartless, but that is a minor complaint.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2). 

Form History Control

Absolutely bloody brilliant Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This extension is so useful that I am actually angry at myself for not discovering it sooner. THANK YOU!!!!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.8.1). 

View Source Chart

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm not even a programmer/developer and I like this. When I do have to examine the page source, this makes it much easier.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.02). 

Toolbar Buttons

Why all the negativity? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

OK, I can understand that some people are a bit uncomfortable with the new icon set. But this extension still does exactly what it did before. Some of the new icons are improvements, others are not. But this is still an extension worth having. In fact, I don't know how I could use FF 4.0 without it!

Zotero

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This needs to be updated, version 2.1.1 is out.

See http://www.zotero.org/support/2.1_changelog

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.9). 

Buttonizer

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Brilliant idea for a FF addon. Keep up the good work!

URL Security

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

An excellent add-on which should be a standard feature. It works well with Personas and all the other extensions I use.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8). 

Similar Sites Toolbar

Pretty nice Rated 5 out of 5 stars

As far as toolbars for Firefox go, this is one of the better ones I've seen. Clean, customizable interface, and it even has an Internet Radio Player!

This is a good alternative to the SimilarWeb Discovery Tool.

Organize Search Engines

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Excellent and much-needed add-on. But I would really like some documentation to know how to use all the options (such as those in the Properties menu).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.6). 

SmartClick

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is a great idea for an add-on, but there should be an options menu so that users don't have to go into about:config to change settings.

gui:config

Addendum Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Just an addendum to my previous review: you can see all the about:config entries at http://kb.mozillazine.org/About:config_entries

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

gui:config

Good, but needs more options! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This add-on is very user-friendly and has a great interface (including toolbar button!), but it should really include more options. If you could include all the options that Configuration Mania uses (see https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4420/ ), but keep the excellent user interface, this add-on would get 5 stars from me.

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

Toolbar Buttons

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

An excellent variety of custom toolbar buttons for a variety of uses. You might not need every button in this package, but I can almost guarantee that at least 10-12 of them will find a place on your toolbar.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6.0.8). 

Extension List Dumper

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on is very useful and very necessary. Firefox should make this a standard feature.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.14.8). 

Witchhammer

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent add-on, very useful for all us evil metalheads...hailz \m/

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5). 

Boomtango

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is a great concept for an add-on, and I appreciate what you are trying to do. But the Boomtango page needs to be made scrollable in order to be more usable. I would also like it to be easier to delete history entries.
