Video DownloadHelper

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

A watermark for FHD?!... Paying extra-fees for a web site like Youtube that's offering free videos from people who also make them for free, is simply unacceptable. If this is some "backdoor royalty" for Youtube, then it should be brought to some legal debate since the revenues aren't shared with the actual content producers ... Else (since I don't believe it'd be such "backdoor royalty"), then it's essentially unethical opportunism - not to say thievery - while trying to make money over the popularity of a FREE web site and its content providers. There are free Opensource tools (even command line toots) that can be integrated with such application so as to convert and combine audio+video for FHD : use them ! having to process this on a third party server should NOT be dogmatically mandatory - even then, some offer this functionality for free : at least, it would be much better if the add-on would still let us download the assets so that we could convert/combine them ourselves as an option...

YouTube Video Download & Convert

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works very well. I removed a star for the interface cluttering the page. One or two linked selection boxes would have been better.

1-Click Downloader (Video or Photo)

Doesn't work in Youtube Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It doesn't work with FF55.0.3 in Youtube: the download button doesn't show up. I guess that it's because Youtube has changed its layout?

1-Click YouTube Video Download

Excellent, but one important thing is missing... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is a 5-stars add-on. However I gave it 4 stars for one reason : it doesn't allow for 480p formats, which is the highest resolution for many Youtube clips that aren't HD (720p and more)

Ghostery

Questions - thus 3 stars but that ranking is irrelevant, just need info Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Hello, this looks very promising, but 1st I'd need some answers... A previous review said that your browser based configuration program uses fonts.googleapis.com, and by doing so provides Google the IP address of every user using your software. Is it still the case ? Also, why do we need to connect to your Web services so as do configure the module?

Download Youtube Video

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

MALWARE / ADWARE beahvior!!! A window will pop-up once in a while with ads and such. It's a link to his Blog (http://weeklyjobadvice.blogspot.com/), which I guess would be the main argument for its author to dispute his ban. MOST PLUGINS THIS AUTHOR HAS MADE CONTAIN THAT UNWANTED AND MALICIOUSLY CODED POP-UP!! Be aware, do not download, and in the mean time harrass Mozilla people so that they BAN this guy.

1-Click YouTube Video Download

Very good integration Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The button is where it should be, it looks and does as it should. The only little deception is that it doesn't recognize 480p and 1080p., but all other Youtube downloaders have the same limitation : YouTube switched to adaptive streams striping audio from video which then need to be merged throughout client side (it requires a different technique than simply looking up for a video file).

Flagfox

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Ce module est tout simplement brillant ! Les fonctions, on les connait, elles se retrouvent de-ce de-là parmi les autres modules. Ici l'auteur a fait du "top-bottom" comme cela doit se concevoir quant aux interfaces personne-système : logique ergonomique aisée à maîtriser ; bien que discret, le "cue" visuel est placé exactement où n'importe quel internaute aurait eu son regard se tourner instinctivement en pensant "origine de l'adresse du site Web" ; utilisation intuitive dès les premiers clics et fonctionnel, Bravo !

CookieCuller

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

For my own usage this plugin is a "must have" : it's the only one offering a white list for deleting all unwanted or unknown cookies in a snap, and managing the white list is very simple, right on the main dialog window. I don't use other fonctionalities like bloking domains (which seems to have a glitch from reading other comments - I use spybot S&D to set a black list within FF configurations). Thus for that sole functionality I give this plugin 5 stars.

Pixlr Grabber

A Web page capture tool, NOT a screen capture tool Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It looks like something needs to be clarified once more for some still complaining about not being able to capture screen regions outside their browser : this is not a screen capture tool, it's a Web page capture tool (also capturing web page regions outside the screen). For screen capturing the tool bundled with Winfdows can be used. Comparing this plugin with let's say Snag it is irrelevent, this tool focusing on capturing web pages and most of all being FREE. For what it's supposed to do it does it flawlessly and I give it 5 stars.

Google Shortcuts - All Google Services at a glance

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Très bonne idée! Quant à moi j'utilise la page d'accueil www.google.ca/ig qui offre une telle barre d'outils (ce n'est pas intégré au navigateur contrairement à ce module, mais comme cela m'est disponible en page d'accueil c'est suffisant pour moi)

Pixlr Grabber

Marvelous tool! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This one is a "must have"! It works flawlessly, has a very simple and intuitive interface for taking "Web capture" image shots. More than just doing Web capture (save or copy to clipboard), you can either use their own editor on their servers, either use your local editor like Photoshop. I like this one!

Note : this is a "Web page capture" tool, e.g. you'll be able to capture whole Web contents even though it's not displayed due to screen size limitation.

SyncPlaces

Excellent, trying it Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Someone wrote : "No need to trust anyone else's servers, and you can sign up for a 2gb Dropbox account for free and use SyncPlaces."But Dropbox itself stores your data in its servers (which is why you can access them from anywhere in case all your Internet devices/computers breaks down), a fact that renders the "external 3rd party not gathering your personal information" completely wrong... No, the real huge advantage of SyncPlaces would be the fact that you can share personal data (passwords, bookmarks and such) :

1- From your own computer as a backup mechanism, or for sharing amongst multiple navigators/accounts.

2- From your own computer acting as an Internet server (if you install FTP or WebDav services, and provided that your use a DNS service such as DynDNS).

3- From your own private office server (again, having the WebDav or FTP services).

The two last options actually replace the need for some Dropbox 3rd party storage services, in a much more secure manner while preserving confidentiality.

Quick Locale Switcher

Wrong default locale, I cannot change it, and a BUG Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Excellent add-on, but unfortunately it's too much intrusive : it forces me to a default locale which is not my country (fr-FR, France), whilst I've set fr-CA (Canada) into Firefox prefs.js (about:config) AND in the plugin itself, but no can do. It just doesn't work : every time I navigate a new page, I need to tell this plugin to change the locale to my real default instead of its own untouchable default forcing me to France (fr-CA as stated in Firefox's config file which is itself accessible via about:config). Consequently the list in prefs.js is growing fast, I'm affraid it'll get so huge that it could clutter and slow down things. This combined with the intrusive behavior of having the plugin always change my desired locale to another one, obliges me to uninstall it : unfortunately it does not work as advertised for some Firefox localization (or for some default locale setting within the plugin itself which CANNOT be changed even though it's not the same default locale as the one adevrtised to it by Firefox).More over, there's a BUG : whenever I change the language to French from Firefox's contextual menu (so as to use another dictionary but without the will of changing the header's locale for the whole page), the plugin's locale also changes automatically and against my will ; moreover, it changes back to fr-FR, NOT fr-CA, even though it's specified that fr-CA should be the one since it's the one that is set as default into Firefox. That's an annoying bug...A very promising plugin, but some coding design MUST be revisited.

Xmarks Sync

Excellent but unusable for me Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Excellent add-on! Unfortunately I can't use it for my home office : I need a solution for synchronizing my bookmarks and passwords through my local area office network, NOT via some unknown outsider, whatever they say about some security policy (we never know... What we know though is that many companies have betrayed their own policies and sold back their e-mail listings and such, many are using some kind of spiders for marketing or other vague reasons). I need to be able to HAVE THE CHOICE of keeping a backup within my office network instead of their own servers (since my local net is accessible via the Web through a secured chanel, this would render the same functionality). There's no way that we'lI let another company keep a backup of confidential data such as passwords and bookmarks...
