My Reviews

StartupMaster

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Simple & lite, yet a complete fix for the master password "built-in annoyance" for single user pc's.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Selected Search

A Must have for Everyone! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Selecting text over the web makes so sense now!

Simply love the addon since it makes searching the web a LOT faster, easier and intuitive. Can't stress enough on how much this thing simplified my search experience while enlarging the search scope, since the process is now selecting and clicking away.

I really appreciate the fact that there are no link modifications by the author as-well. Thanks mate!

The only request would be the ability to scale the icons to twice their current size, making it easier to identify and click on the required site.

Thumbnail Zoom Plus

A must have! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks for your great work. It really makes my web experience pleasant.
The need to open a new tab or even move away from the parent page JUST to view an image is stupid & does get annoying after a while. This takes care of all tht! :D
The only complaint would be the missing "save as" icon on the enlarged image. It would make those thumbnails more interactive and the add-on perfect!

CsFire

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Thanks for hard work and making the process non intrusive.
The only and the biggest complain is that the icon recreates/moves itself in the add-on bar every time browser restarts. Annoying when you have it hidden. One has to go into customize & move the icon every darn time .. errrr [not to mention the icon is HUGE and scales the add-on bar accordingly]. FIX IT pls.

Lightbeam for Firefox

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Seems kinda similar to ether ape but love the idea & must have for me! Though is a little shy in features (hence the rating) like request details .. zoom .. ip/machine details on each node n other geeky stuff & would love to see them in future builds.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.16.2). 

StartupMaster

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works great & thankfully gets rid of those annoying multiple password pop-ups each time you restart the app.
You can also choose to quit the app if no password is entered, which is simply great ....Thanks!

Google/Yandex search link fix

Must have addon for all Googlers Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Niftly lill addon, thanks!
Works great in conjunction with other addons!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1). 

Mozilla Labs: Prospector - Search Tabs

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Just what i need!!
Eliminates the need of opening a context menu [i.e. selecting text .. right clicking ... finding a context menu entry (which too you get if* u have installed an addon) .... searching through a list of engines u have & finally clicking]. The sad bit is you need to keep doing that over and over again during ure daily browsing experience & this makes it annoying/tiring. just highlight and click to search.
MAKE it compatible with fox 8.0.1!

HTTPS Finder

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great addition to my collection of fox's addon!
Is working great for me in combination with HTTPS-Everywhere.
Just one question .... Force-TLS sould not be run in conjunction with this? not really necessary or iz it?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.69). 

Single Key Tab Switch

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

never knew switching tabs cld hav been this eazy .. was always lot in the tabbar : )
works great!

MediaWrap

Handy stuff Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Handy feature.
You can try using MediaPlayerConnectivity addon; https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/446/ for compatibility with recent firefox release.

RequestPolicy

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent add-on, a must have!
Please note that on hiding the status bar the icon on the Navigation toolbar gets disabled (shows nothing, does nothing). Kindly address this issue!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.13). 

Strata40

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent theme. Simple and pleasant to the eye for everyday use.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.7). 

Domain Details

Great Install Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Simple .. all in one extension. Using an add-on for flag and then one for ip seems stupid to me. Shows what i want in one simple install. Besides nor i have noticed any refs being sent to any third party website makes this a winner for me. :) Thanks mate!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.6). 

Configuration Mania

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This addon gives a good user interface to customize and control various aspects of your browser. These settings are usually hidden away and difficult to remember and go into to tweak things the way you would have 'em. Should have been a part of the built in features I must say! A must have addon! Thanks for the great work mate.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.10.2009111101). 

gTranslate

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Simple and great tool!
Is it possible to have the translation pop up in a small window rather then a separate page when selecting large amount of text!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.1). 

FoxTab

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

SweeT!
One of the nicest things to have happened to fox lately!
A MUST install!
and for those concerned ... worked flawlesly :D

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.1). 

Speed Dial

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

one of the must have addons for FF!I have set as my homepage, and works flawlessly!!

The only option it lacks is to "disable the auto refresh of ALL the thumbnails" from one place OR as the default option! (the user should be able to manually select the auto refresh later)

PLZ PLZ, make this option availible in the upcoming versions!
