My Reviews

DuckDuckComplete!

No Tracking! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

And neutral searches! What Google & co. sold their tool on right at the beginning. Now they are all PRISM stooges (along with Yahoo, Bing/MS, AOL or whatever's left of it, Facebook, etc.).

Go DuckDuck!

Yahoo Toolbar

Yahoo invasion Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I do NOT want automated defaulting to the Yahoo search engine when I enter words in the URL bar. I have reset my keyword.URL setting but it still reverts to Yahoo. (I don't want Google either. I want a tracking-free search engine to handle my default searches, such as DuckDuckGo.)

Adblock Plus

AdBlock blocked? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Every time I start FireFox, AdBlock is there in name only: Options gives a blank page & ads are all over the place. I have to install it again & it works fine - until I start FireFox next time, when it's disappeared agaiin!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.2).  This user has 2 previous reviews of this add-on.

Silent Block

Where is it? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Um, right, I've clicked on Add to FireFox, Install, Restart FireFox... & now what? No indication of where it is, did a search in my User profile & Programs for "contentblock-regex.txt" - not a bean!

Provider for Google Calendar

Not needed? Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I don't understand why I need this to sync Google calendar & Lightning. I can put the GCal link in "New Calendar"... can't I? (I haven't tried Provider so rating 2* as I can't "not" rate!)I used this tip: http://www.google.com/support/calendar/bin/answer.py?answer=99358#sunbird to install the Google CalDav in Lightning & it seems to be working fine in both directions. That said, Instructions, Help, config etc., in Lightning AND Google calendar are a total mess. It took me over an hour to find the above, which stipulates that it must be a https address, but other tips send you to the xml / ical / http addresses (all http). Maybe above link is for DavCal only? What's the difference between DavCal & iCal? ...&xml & html..?All I know is my calendar works across my 2 PCs, in TB and on the Google calendar site. Without Provider. (And if I used OldeCrow's 5-min rule I'd still be in 1980 ;-))

Xmarks Sync

BACKUP!! Rated 3 out of 5 stars

BACKUP YOUR BOOKMARKS REGULARLY!!

After a few years of fine service, Xmarks has just gone & wiped my bookmarks & replaced them with an ancient old set from my IE. Years of work, contacts, tips etc. down the drain!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.7.8). 

Adblock Plus

Blocks RSS Rated 4 out of 5 stars

AdBlock blocks my RSS feeds, which is a pain. It's also not cool to know that it blocks MY blog feeds from my followers' web pages. Display can be allowed for individual sites, but you need to realise first that something's missing & that it's AdBlock that's doing it!

Send Later (old)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Can't believe TB3 has made this unavailable!

That's not UPgrade, it's DOWNgrade.

Back to TB2 then and it' improvements on TB3.

5* for Send Later, 1* for TB3.

Send Later (old)

And TB3?? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This function is absolutely crucial and should be cemented into TB for all time!

I WILL NOT upgrade TB as long as this does not travel with the upgrade.

Xmarks Sync

EXPORT FIRST! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Always, ALWAYS, export your bookmarks before updating! Just in case. (I learned the hard way).

It takes a few seconds. If the Update messes up & loses them, you can import them again. Another few seconds.

Otherwise, I'm finding it very useful - I have it on my home & work PCs & my laptop on the other side of the world, & they all have my latest bookmarks in perfect order.

Adblock Plus

FF 2 OK Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It works fine on my FF 2.0.0.20.

Very good. For some sites you have to disable it for full access, bute it's easy to just disable/enable if & when.

Delicious Bookmarks

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I DON'T WANT "seamlessly integrates"!!
I never authorized a menu addition of delicious.
How do I unseamlessly remove it??
