My Reviews

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

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.

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.

Must have

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.

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

Open Tabs Next to Current

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works

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.

DOM Inspector

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Just what I needed

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.15.1-signed). 

Full Session History

Not working in FF 31 Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Shows empty popup (little square instead of a menu).

Session Manager

Bug report Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Sometimes I get this error:
The session/window data is corrupted:
undefined(undefined)

undefined:undefined

After it happens all subsequent autosaves fail similarly.

[edit] I'm lucky. I just got this error:
This operation failed due to a file access error:
Component returned failure code: 0x8007000e (NS_ERROR_OUT_OF_MEMORY) [nsIScriptableUnicodeConverter.convertToInputStream](NS_ERROR_OUT_OF_MEMORY)

Unlike the one mentioned before, It doesn't cause errors in subsequent saves.

FF messed up (escaped) some symbols when copying from error boxes.

Classic Theme Restorer (Customize UI)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works great. The only strange thing I spotted is that the orange FireFox button is smaller in height than tabs panel (i.e. than it normally was), but I don't need it anyway.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.3.1-signed).
