My Reviews

YouTube High Definition

Greatly improves YouTube's user experience Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a great extension! Many options to make YouTube actually remember your preferred viewing preferences. The extension even works for YouTube videos embedded on other websites.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (61.25). 

Shortkeys (Custom Keyboard Shortcuts) for Firefox

Shortkeys add-on doesn't work in Firefox 51+, but now works! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

For some reason, this add-on is hardcoded to only work in Firefox versions 50 or earlier:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/files/browse/570549/file/manifest.json#L24

Update: The problem was fixed. Thanks!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.17). 

(ESCapeFromThemGIFs)

This add-on does not work in e10s multi-process mode Rated 3 out of 5 stars

But it works well in non-e10s mode.

Quora Share

Simple and it works Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Quora's login-wall is annoying. The Quora Share extension automatically adds the "secret knock" ("share=1") to quora.com links so you can read articles without logging in.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.1-signed.1-signed). 

is.gd Creator (fork)

is.gd Creator is good Rated 5 out of 5 stars

One click of this toolbar button will generate an is.gd short URL for the current page and copy it to your clipboard. My only complaint is that the toolbar button icon is a distracting bright red color.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.4.1-signed). 

Soft Summer Evening by MaDonna

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Colorful and subtle.

Reader

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Many formatting options. Reader works offline, unlike the "Readability" addon!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.4.1-signed). 

Iconic Firefox Menu

I needed a hamburger Rated 5 out of 5 stars

And the Iconic Firefox Menu add-on provided.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.1-signed.1-signed). 

Colorlicious

Nice and simple color customization Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on could be more complicated, but why? :) It let's me configure some basic theme colors without much fuss.

Modify Headers

Clever add-on for HTTP testing Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very helpful for testing web applications.

Phony

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Phony is a life saver when some mobile websites don't work with Firefox.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.6.1-signed.1-signed). 

User Agent Switcher

Works good Rated 4 out of 5 stars

But I wish it came bundled with some User-Agent strings. Also, the switcher UI is a little cumbersome.

PDF Viewer(discontinued)

Lightweight alternative to Adobe PDF Reader Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Rendering can be a little slow, but PDF Viewer doesn't jank your computer like that behemoth Adobe PDF Reader.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.1.1-signed.1-signed). 

Mass Password Reset

LDAP hates me Rated 5 out of 5 stars

But Mass Password Reset loves me! I no longer have to change my saved LDAP password for each and every intranet site at work.

Feedly - Beyond Google Reader

Better than Google Reader? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Dare I say Feedly is better than Google Reader? Almost! Pretty UI with many preferences.

The feed management is a little cumbersome, but Feedly is improving quickly. The add-on is a little slow and janky.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (14.0.482.1-signed.1-signed). 

YouTube video quality manager

Absolutely required Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I can't believe YouTube doesn't do this automatically. I have broadband and always want to watch 720p video.

Favicon Restorer

Restores Favicon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Bring a little color back to Firefox's drab AwesomeBar.

Full Screen mobile

Great for reading long articles Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I like to read long news articles on my phone on the train. The Full Screen add-on is the perfect companion.

Suspend background tabs

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Clever add-on! The only annoyance I've found is that when I open twitter pages (which use JS to dynamically load much of the page content) in a background tab, the page doesn't actually start loading until I switch to that tab. Maybe background tabs could postpone their suspension until a couple seconds after losing focus or after first loading?

HTTP/2 Indicator

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've been looking for a feature like this and now I've found it!
