My Reviews

Close Tab Context Menu

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Google search link fix

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks, this add-on works exactly as described, enables me to copy URLs from Google search results directly.

All Tabs Helper

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Coming from Tabs Menu where I could scroll through over a hundred tabs easily from a menu-based list, the enforced move to WebExtensions really worried me. This add-on gives me a button I can place in about the same position and provides both a listing of all tabs, plus a quick way to search, close, etc. - more than I've had before! Very thankful for this work and while I realize the Mozilla WebExtension APIs are rather limiting, if you can see a way to perhaps offer a larger size for the pulldown list dimensions and allow for increased spacing above and below list items, that would be ideal. Otherwise, it's fast enough and keeps me productive, great work.

EDIT: Wow, 1.0.18 added a custom width setting for the toolbar button meny and it works great - thank you!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.16). 

Session Manager

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

One of those handful of essential extensions to Firefox, I have multiple saved sessions and rely on this add-on multiple times a day. Thank you for such an amazingly capable and flexible piece of work and I hope that something like it can be extended to 57+, because I'm not sure how useful web browsing will be without it.

Secure Login (Embedded WebExtension)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I am still on v56 and just removed your old version of this add-on to try the WebExtension version. It works perfectly for me! Perhaps my usage is not too demanding, but it graphically shows when potential logins are available on a page like before and offers the list of credentials for any given field (e.g., I have a mail login with multiple IDs built up over time - they are all selectable from the drop-down list). This was one of my top add-ons which needed replacement before moving to 57+, so thank you for working on this WebExtension version. I hope it can pass review and be made available for 57+ soon.

QuickJava (For FF Versions 56 AND BELOW only)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you for this extremely helpful add-on, which I have used for years - the ability to toggle Flash, Javascript and Java at will has made my browsing more efficient and I'll be sorry to see it go due to Mozilla's decision to imitate Chrome.

AppLauncher

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on works very well and has great options for kicking off apps relative to my current page information.

Unfortunately, it's not compatible with Firefox 57+ and I was wondering if that was being explored with Mozilla, perhaps.

Tabs Menu

Essential add-on, especially for when you have more than 15 tabs open Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Admittedly, I sometimes have over 100 tabs open and this extension is mandatory for finding my way among them in a quick, logical fashion.

I did recently note that it is listed as "Not compatible with multiprocess" setting in recent Firefox releases, which would seem a nice upgrade consideration by this author.

Simple Form Fill

Fast and easy Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've been using the old "FormFiller" add-on for years, which was not officially supported any longer but still working OK on latest Firefox builds if you tweaked its version compatibility.

However, this add-on not only does what FormFiller offered (i.e., context-menu selection for form field values) but the editing interface for those values is extremely fast and easy to use. I've since dropped the legacy add-on and moved to this one, which is greatly appreciated.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.4). 

Video DownloadHelper

Functionality is reliable, have been using for years, small UI issue Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I enjoy the functionality of this add-on, but find it is moving all of the toolbar contents rightward when content is detected in a page and the DownloadHelper icon dynamically adds a pulldown to its appearance. I've missed the Back and other buttons numerous times due to this shifting. Would be nice to see an option to keep the width of this control static within the toolbar.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.9.22.1-signed). 

Session Manager

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on has made life much easier: great management of restores after sudden crashes (whether due to Firefox itself or the system in which it operates), I have saved a number of sessions under "themes" of open tabs that enable me to restore aspects of research or areas of interest quickly (i.e., as opposed to locating individual bookmarks) and it's been easy to use. The review before mine seems a bit beyond the norm and I hope that they can resolve their issues (wherever they exist - perhaps not in this add-on), but comments here by the Developer have been moderate and helpful, from what I can see.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.8.1.1-signed). 

All-in-One Sidebar

Organizes Firefox nicely, recent performance bug Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I gave this add-on a 5 star rating for the years of usefulness it has provided - having a single location to manage all of my bookmarks, add-ons, history, downloads, etc. has been a great way to keep Firefox organized.

However, something has happened in the past month and this add-on is now causing horrendous slowdowns in the browser - even if it is the only add-on enabled. I had no choice but to disable this add-on, else pull my hair out waiting for many seconds at a time for mouse clicks to be accepted, individual keystrokes to be recognized, etc. Hope the developer can figure out what's going on soon, because Firefox feels all wild and wooly without it.

gtranslate

Easy, fast and reliable Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Always a great add-on, although it sometimes misses the context of From and To languages if you change them a bit in a given browser session, I've noticed. Still, it's free and works quite well 99% of the time for me. Curious how this is working with Google, now that the free API has been deprecated (i.e., is the gTranslate team paying for v2 API use?)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.1-signed). 

Text2Link

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works exactly as advertised and is very convenient - I like having the options to open in the current tab, a new tab (with or without that being a background tab) or a new window.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.9.5). 

Tabs Menu

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Combined with Tab Mix Plus, this very useful add-on provides me with a very fast and effective Firefox interface without using the Tab bar.

I use Tabs Menu for all of my inter-tab navigation, which is extremely similar to how I previously used Opera without tabs (natively) for years.

Some of the reviews here are incredibly unfair - if you don't see the point, there's no need to offer a low-star rating for something that you don't use.

For me, this add-on is stable and works quite well. I often have 80+ tabs open and there's no hint of a performance issue from the add-on, itself.

All-in-One Sidebar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This gives me Opera-like convenience and more - a highly recommended add-on.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.7). 

Formfiller

Works under Firefox 3 (assembly required) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've used Formfiller to make up for function that I used in Opera for years. It's a remarkably simple time-saver, but unlike in native Opera, the Formfiller add-on allows for creation of custom fields.

Of course, it isn't being supported actively and Firefox 3 is an issue.

So, I downloaded the latest .xpi file (without directly installing it in Firefox 3 - it won't work as-is), unzipped the package, edited "install.rdf" to allow a max version of "3.*", rezipped into the .xpi file and then installed it locally.

Formfiller can work with Add and Delete keys under FF3, but I noticed that you cannot edit an existing key. For that, you need to delete and recreate the key. Otherwise, functionality seems the same as under FF2.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3).
