My Reviews

Honey

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It would work but it doesn't seem to know any voucer codes for UK shops.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (10.7.2a). 

Video DownloadHelper

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Used to be undefeatable but these days it doesn't work as well anymore.

It seems to struggle with Youtube, Facebook and Mixcloud downloads. But I'm not sure if it's even being developed anymore. Extensions like this are rarely compatible with the new webextensions for newer versions of Firefox. Of courses users like us are now using ESR which is still supported for security updates and works well with any old extensions.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (7.2.2).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Facebook Video Downloader

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Does not work, clicking the button does nothing.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.189). 

MySessions

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The addon will let you create sessions with titles and restore them to the current tab or a new window. It does this pretty well.
I tried this out as an alternative to "session manager" which is no longer support in FF 57+. Unfortunately this extension does not have an import feature for "session manager", or have folders to group sessions.
The UI and usability could do with some refinement as well.

In reply to developer: How can you import from session manager if it does not support folders for sessions? Does it dump them all into 1 list?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.4.9). 

Image Picka

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Works fine for what it does but only does current tab.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.0). 

Wired-Marker

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Has not told us if a web extensions version will be produced. There is no current marker tool in FF 57+

SoundCloud to MP3 Downloader

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Domain name does not seem to exist (or is down today).

Fake Location

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It works but only after clearing caches, cookies and website data from all time to be on the safe side.
It's legacy so very soon it won't work at all.

Mixcloud Downloader

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

So far so good. For some reason my other download addons have failed me on Mixcloud but this one is working great in Oct 2017.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.0). 

Download with Free Download Manager (FDM)

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I installed the app, installed the "native client" and clicking on downloads did not pass them to FDM, they just downloaded as normal. This addon is not developed by the official FDM team and the whole thing seems a bit dodgy to me.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.4). 

Wired-Marker

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I can now recommend this addon again for marking where you have read up to on a page. It's working for Firefox 53.0.2 again so thanks to the dev for fixing it again.

I think it could be streamlined a bit more so that you can create the markers more easily. At the moment I'm doing a right click > wired marker > marker > select marker colour which is a bit slow. Perhaps "Highlight text > Click toolbar button > Select colour" would be easier. I tried to use the toolbar button but could not find a way to create the markers using it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.0.17042100).  This user has other reviews of this add-on.

TitleQ

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Exactly what I was looking for but unfortunately it didn't seem to work for me. Using CTRL+Up/Down simply dived to the bottom or top of the page. Perhaps it would be better if it just went to the next h1-6 tag in the curent block.

Wired-Marker

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I was using the Right click menu to highlight text in different colours and it was great. It keeps the highlighting regardless of whether you refresh which is what I needed. But now it no longer works and the right click menu has vanished entirely. I'm using FF 52.0.2.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.0.11120600.1-signed.1-signed). 

Video DownloadHelper

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Brillian media downloader with a great track record for being able to download when others can't.

Lately I've had a few problems and can't seem to download from many Mixcloud links, e.g. http://bit.ly/2oeBy1Q

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.2.0). 

Popup Blocker (Lite)

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I was pretty hopeful about this addon but it seems just as innefective as the other popup blockers. I went to popuptest.com but it failed miserably.

Reply to author's comment: Thanks for listening and improving on the addon.

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

Autofill (Legacy)

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

It seems to be designed for situations where you have to fill out the same form over and over. Most forms I have to fill out are always slightly different so it just won't be useful.

I found the support site and it seems that you have to use Right click > "Add rules for this form". So I think it's designed for repetitive form-filling of the same form.

I found it a bit difficult to use. You go through the wizard and nothing seems to happen. Better usability needed.

InFormEnter+

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

The problems I've had with this form filler are:

1) It loads for every form field regardless of whether it has 1 field or 50. This means it even shows on search boxes.
2) Slow to fill out.
3) Does not attemp to guess what should be entered.

Simple form filler was better but now that's gone too.

No Close Buttons

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

What it basically does is removes all the close buttons. So you will have to use CTRL+W to close tabs now if that's what you want.

What I was looking for was a way to get one close button at the right hand side of the browser window for all tabs (Opera style), because I find I click the close buttons by mistake all the time and have to strain my eyes to prevent it.

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

ThunderSec

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Seems good so far but it interfers with the notifications in TB 45. So if TB says "Thunderbird thinks this message is junk", then you can't see the message from Thundersec. You can't click the close button either because the Thundersec messages are not underneath them.

I think it needs adjusting for average users. I just wanted to validate that messages were from the host they said they were and then either move to Junk or Deleted items (a feature I feel TB should have out of the box).

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The recommendation to replace ABP with Ublock Origin has also helped a huge amount. Now pages load almost instantly and my Firefox memory usage has shrunk to 500mb from 1.2gb! All this time pages were loading so slowly and no amount of optimization of addon choices seemed to help.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.5).
