My Reviews

Reverse Tabs

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Saves the day in the rare case when FireFox recovers from crash with tabs in reversed order.

Instagram Web

Click-bait addon Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This is a button that opens instagram.com

Menu Wizard

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works great

Who stole my pictures?

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works great.

Vkontakte Player Control Panel (Restored)

Использовал бы, но очень сырое расширение Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Критический быг: Время от времени передвигает вкладку с текущим проигрывателем на почти передний план. Т.е. при нажатии Ctrl+Tab она показывается.

HTML5 Player for YouTube™

The only HTML5 YouTube addon that works Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works well with "YouTube High Definition" addon, allowing it to disable autoplay.

Undo Closed Tabs Button

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Nice one

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.9.5). 

Video DownloadHelper

It actually has all the features of v4, I found them now Rated 5 out of 5 stars

After using it more I got used to new design. I found 2 settings I missed before:
- Setting default action: [+] in new UI, then "Use this action as default" check-box.
- Disabling "Download is now ready" notification: Settings - Behavior - Notify when processed
- As for paid HD1080+ YouTube download, indeed these options can't be disabled, only moved down the list in Settings - Video qualities. Then they can be effectively hidden most of the time, because the addon only displays 6 variants by default. As for me, I patched the addon get rid of watermark and slowness of conversion.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.3.1.1-signed).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

uBlock Origin

Good luck with the addon Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I like it, but I'm not switching to it.
Most importantly, it conflicts with Dictionary Switcher addon. I know some addons have special checks for AdBlock Plus, so this isn't surprising as this addon is so fresh.
I also really like "Open blockable items" dialog in ABP. E.g. I use it when I want to download Instagram pics.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.9.3). 

Video DownloadHelper

Has almost all v4 functions now, but not all yet Rated 4 out of 5 stars

- Doesn't allow setting proper default action (I need "Quick download" as the default action for everything).
- I haven't found an option to disable the "Download is now ready" notification in options.
After failing to find a better addon I had to:
- Find and disable in about:config the "extensions.dwhelper.notify-ready" option.
- Patch getTargetFilePath function in lib\actions.js to get rid of the Save As dialog call.
- Patch lib\converter.js to get rid of watermark and slowness of convertion of ADP videos.
Now I'm happy with it.

OmniSidebar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Must have

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5.4.1-signed). 

Saved Password Editor

Reports of passwords not filling in or being wiped out may be related to another extension Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I had Remember Passwords extension that worked before I upgraded from FF31esr to FF38esr: https://addons.mozilla.org/ru/firefox/addon/remember-passwords/
On 38 it caused passwords not filling in and made Saved Password Editor show blank list of passwords.
Filed a bug: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1182504

S3.Google Translator

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great

friGate

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very nice, but the button has problems showing itself in places other than navigation bar.

Tab Utilities

Makes everything horribly slow Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It's incredible how much this addon slows FireFox down. Stay away from any of its variations.

The replacement is a combination of addons:
https://addons.mozilla.org/ru/firefox/addon/open-tabs-next-to-current/
https://addons.mozilla.org/ru/firefox/addon/super-tab-mode/
https://addons.mozilla.org/ru/firefox/addon/duplicate-this-tab/

And a Stylish style like this one I use:
@namespace url(http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul);
.tabbrowser-tab[fadein]:not([pinned]) {
max-width: 250px !important;
min-width: 1px !important;
}
.tabbrowser-tab[fadein][selected]:not([pinned]) {
min-width: 18px !important;
}
#tabbrowser-tabs ~ #alltabs-button {
visibility: visible !important;
}
.tabbrowser-tab[pending] {
opacity: 0.6 !important;
}
#alltabs-popup > *[pending] {
opacity: 0.6 !important;
}

Duplicate This Tab

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

One addon that does it right. Yet, there is a bug: all menu items are present no matter what I set in options.

Open Tabs Next to Current

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.0.1-signed). 

Tabbrowser Preferences

Doesn't work. Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Doesn't work. No Options item in addons list, no menu items anywhere to be found.

Super Tab Mode

BUG: Inverts tabs on browser start Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Tabs from last session are inverted on each start (first is shown last in the tab bar etc.). Caused by "right near father" setting for opening new tabs.
I also wish it moved tabs opened in background to the top of "last tab" list so to speak, so that when I middle click a link and close the current tab the tab I opened in background was selected.
