Extension Options Menu

Great time-saver Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Wonderfully easy way to get to extension options. Can this be made compatible with Personal Menu? If you have Personal Menu installed, the default setting (integration with the Add-Ons menu entry--which looks great, from screenshots) causes "Add-Ons" to disappear from the menu. Fortunately, I know how to get back to Add-Ons (about:addons) to change the default, but, still, it was very disconcerting. Great effort!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.22). 

Video DownloadHelper

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

When YouTube (or some other site) breaks again (again again again)--inevitably--you have to track down the BugZilla page for VDH, guess which bug applies to you, and download a newer version from a Sooper Sekrit Link.

Somehow, every *other* developer knows to post the pre-releases *here*, so they're available under "View all versions".

One star for rampant unfriendliness to users.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.9.4). 

Arboreal

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Beats the pants off View Source Tree, at least for my needs. Beautiful.

Certificate Patrol

Must-have fix for SSL shortcomings Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Righteous! Love this to death.

Edited for dev reply: SQLite: excellent. Mostly what I'm asking for is: in addition to the lovely host/domain ignore list you added, also a "host/domain to only check CA list". Keep it all centralized, and make it easy to only check CA for *.google.com, *.googleusercontent.com. and so on.

Right now, I have to check this box for *every certificate*, and it's a long, long slog. Then, when the cert expires in a-year-or-whatever: I have to re-check all those boxes for all those certificates. Too much effort.

I *want* to know if the issuance chain has *completely changed* on, say, Google certificates; I'd rather not ignore them entirely. However, until I can "semi-ignore" entire domains, it's very tempting to dump *.g*.com into the ignore list. Or disable Certificate Patrol entirely.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.8).
