RequestPolicy

I have missed this AddOn: tryed hacking it myself, but Rated 4 out of 5 stars

that can always lead to unk. consequences, hopefully the project is back on track! After using RP for more than a year, I just got used to blocking all the oddball requests embedded in webpages -- the amount of tracking going on is ridiculous! It's like online-stalking. We need to value privacy very highly. The laconic slide into apathy goes down a very [warning: cliche] slippery slope!

Thanks for giving the project new life.

Restartless Restart

Yay, it works. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

An other Restart addon was not working. I added this one and thought it was not working, then found that I was clicking the old one, which was still in the menu until a restart -- this one's fine new icon did the restart. All I ask of the code, and we got it!

Restart Firefox

Used to work Rated 2 out of 5 stars

But not working now, and that's a shame.

Time to find another addon to do this: should be a built-in feature of FF! I like to use a zillion tabs and several windows so restarting is not only necessary several times a day, but a bit of a pain. A restart feature, such as the button FF offers when you update a plugin should be trivial!!

This one does not work though.

Noia Fox

Noia Makes FF USABLE! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Without Noia Fox Firefox is SOOOO UGLY! that I can not stand to use it. Please update Noia. We don't need (I don't need) any advanced features -- just the main look and feel!!!

Thanks for your consideration. It's been a number of years or versions, so many that I can't directly how long. Started with this theme when I began to use FF, and it is so much a part of it that I've been able to forgive all of FF's faults, slowness, changes that break my patterns in daily use, etc.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.8.1-signed). 

Email Link button

FF 16.01 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

FF 16.00 to 16.01 -- This security update for FireFox removed the 'Send Link' context menu option because...they are idiots? I use the feature dozens of times daily. So I tried this addon. It installed, but that's all it did. It did not create an icon anywhere, not even in the customize list.

Correct that, it did apparently uninstall ok. That's not much of a feature.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.1-signed). 

Easy YouTube Video Downloader

Misleading -- Hidden Adware? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I clicked OK to install the version directly from addons.mozilla.org Doing so installed the extension and opened a page telling me that the features advertised required adding other components downloaded not through mozilla, and mentioning it is 'ad supported, not adware' And that distinction is? They say that I would have an option to not install their unspecified ad component software, but none was given.

I would like to know what stuff it put on my computer and what remain after I uninstalled the extension from FF. It's odd that FF thinks it uninstalled this, ah, software, because I renamed the operative XPI file before running the removal and that file was not touched and FF no longer reports the installation: was the uninstall just a dummy? Are there other nefarious files lingering on my computer that were installed without my express permission, knowledge or consent??

I would say the whole thing is misleading and warn you to stay away. The newest version of DownloadHelper (4.9.10) does work even on Win7.64 If that's not enough, I'm looking at Mixya. No need for the strange stuff seen here....

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.5). 

SearchWith

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I could not get new settings to work until reading the article below by JeNaait UtSteed. One thing he left out is that when editing services, you can select the new line of the service, below 'Disabled' but you have to hit enter on the keyboard in order to set the choice.

I've upgraded my assessment because this is actually fully functional -- but the incomplete user interface left unable to operate the settings and feeling a bit like a newbie. (It's so far from obvious what you have to do to make a new setting and get it to work!)

Simple Search-For Extension

Just one Search Engine?? Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I want to find an extension / plugin that allows me to mouse over or highlight (text, image, graphic) and search a choice of engines: Google, Gmaps, Froogle, Amazon, eBay, IMDB, Urban Dictionary, GImages, etc. It would be sweet if I could just use the list of engines I've added to Firefox's search-bar-box as I can in Firefox with "Context Search" plugin!

Until then this is a rather limited application.

Folderpane Tools

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This small extension/addon doesn't do all that much, but what it does do (rearrange folders and set the default) is extremely important. I've been using Thunderbird for years, since converting from Eudora, and have not been able to change the order in which my accounts appear in the folder-pane, nor set the default. I've tried editing the userprefs.js and it does not take, or the changes appear random -- not sure why, it's pretty straightforward looking. This little bit of code fixed it first time, hoo-rah. I give it a high mark! /..

PS: I use Thunderbird 5.0 now, and this is the version I for which I installed and used FolderPane.
