My Reviews

The Addon Bar (Restored)

I almost abandoned FF without this add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Since FF developers removed add-on bar to match the Google Chrome interface, I also decided to abandon it, and give a try to Chrome, But wait... With this add-on I can use Firefox again with the flexibility to place my add-on on bottom and keep my toolbar area clutter free!.

To Developer of this add-on.
Please also remove that annoying close button, which is almost useless.

Video WithOut Flash

Broken Functionality Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Gave me "This page isn't available" error on YouTube. Using it on FF25

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.1-signed). 

Video Downloader professional

Avoid it Rated 1 out of 5 stars

A very bad addon. Flooded my FF configurations. and forced me to reinstall the browser.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.97.26.1-signed). 

DownThemAll! AntiContainer

Unified version Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Instead of new one, this should be unified with original add-on.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.3.1-signed). 

Cleanest Addon Manager

Firefox Implementation Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Why isn't this implemented in FireFox on the first place? A must have view option for about:addons

Self-Destructing Cookies

Global Settings Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This is indeed an useful addon but with some minor lack of options.

IMV there should be two type of options for Self Destruct Cookies.

One should be global in preference menu, where user should be able to set the below 4 options for all websites.

1- User close the tab
2- User close browser,
3- period of time in days
4- Newer.

Second the current method, clicking the Addon icon.
and the second method should override the first option only for that individual site.

That's the way how similar addons like Adblock, Ghostery No-Script and No-Squint etc works.

ImTranslator - Google Translator, Dictionary, TTS

One Question Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is an useful add-on but with the lack of some basic options and one of them is the ability to remove/change context menu entries.Hope it will be fixed in next release.

P.S
@Developer
Thanks for implementing my suggestion
Changing rating from 3 to 5

FireTube (Youtube Music Player)

Annoying and rigid interface Rated 2 out of 5 stars

The biggest problem with this addon is its interface. The total toolbar require almost one third of my addon-bar, and no matter how many time I remove some of them e.g search icon or song title AKA ads-bar, it comes back with next restart of FF. I run FF with lots of addons and can't afford that much space for just one.

Now some suggestions for its improvements...

1- Their should be only 4 buttons e.g. Previous | Play | Next and Options.

2- Hovering on Options button should show Song Title in Tool Tips style, and right clicking on it should download the current song in user specified folder.

3- In Options their should be a section where user can choose the downloaded folder.

Hope the above suggestions will be implemented soon.

NoSquint

Some problems Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This Addon is useful but with some problems. I don't need its context menu entry, how to remove it? Another problem is its status-bar icon, how to move it to addon-bar?

This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Compact Menu 2

Interfering with Bookmarks Star Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It's good add-on but somehow in new FF versions it's Interfering with Bookmarks Star in address bar. please resolve it ASAP.

GoogAlexa

Small and Simple Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Good and Clean addon! an option to edit color and font would be great.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.5.1-signed). 

Tumblr Post

Useful but, improvment is needed Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Some futures are missing Or need to be simplified.

1- Only Photo, Link OR Text post options are available. What about the other for options?
2- How about an option to add current link Title automatically in Title/Caption field?
3- More width is needed for Tags field.
4- Previously added Tags should be quickly available by pressing first alphabet key.
5- Post a Photo/Video option should bring the applet, with an option to load local Image/Video OR a link and embed codes. just like on Tumblr.
6- Left click should be used to quickly launch previously posted option.

Hope you'll implement these suggestion asap.

ImgViewerPlus

Some Suggestios Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Good Add-on and here are some suggestions

1- Image Movement by Mouse + Right Click Button customization i.e. I want to use middle mouse key
2- Shortcut Keys customization
3- Quick Zoom on selected area. i.e. Right Click Button to draw a rectangle and zoom.

Good Luck!

ContextMenuPlus

Good but needs a Submenu Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I second to recommend using a Submenu for all ContextMenuPlus options. It will help cleanup Context Menu, which is already flooded by other add-ons.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4.2.1-signed). 

Grooveshark Remote Control

Not work'n in Firefox 16 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

How does this thingy work?, It's always show'n not play'n, and no controls are work'n, even though the song is play'n fine on Grooveshark.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.3). 

Search Image Everywhere

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Instead flooding main context menu, why don't you use sub-menu for your add-on?

Also add more options .e.g. iqdb.org OR pictriev.com

This site has some useful informative links imgops.com check it out.

Speedtest

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Not working anymore, the script is too old and requires an update.

Phzilla

Popups Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Bad add-on, it gives me popup every time I start my browser and brows something. Even if I don't use it.

Voyage

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Good add-on, but two questions...

1-How can I hide/move "Media Wall" section to other position e.g. Top from Bottom?
2- How can I copy/export the history pane of specific day to an external HTML file??

Stealthy

Working Again Rated 4 out of 5 stars

No more useful. I think they changed the focus on pro version, hence the free version is not working correctly anymore. Now whenever I press the Stealthy icon, its turns just in yellow with "please wait" tooltip. I recommend alternatives.
-----------------------------
P.S. I think since the version 2.3.3 released on July 26, it starts working again... Thus changing the rating from 1 to 4.
