My Reviews

LiveClick

Stopped working Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Stopped working as of Firefox 17beta

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.2.0.1-signed).  This user has other reviews of this add-on.

Urim

What a great start! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Thank you Oleg for this amazingly sleek addon. URIM even seems to know stopwords in different languages.

Please also have a look here:
http://www.donationcoder.com/forum/index.php?topic=24496.msg231311#msg231311

for a tool that does automatic keyword collection and highlighting.

Maybe you can provide a similar option for URIM, for example, use the most frequent words from URIM's tag cloud, and highlight these words in the web page text with different colors!

Keep up the great work!

LiveClick

LiveCLick SQL handling makes Firefox hang Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I love the functionality that LiveCLick adds to the (otherwise unusable) Firefox Live Bookmarks.

However, at present. LiveClick leads to very annoying hangs in the Firefox memory subsystem (or something). So I had to uninstall LiveClick :-(

Read all about it at Bugzilla:

Feed Sidebar

Breaks the Showcase sidebar Rated 2 out of 5 stars

had to uninstall Feed Sidebar because with it installed, the Showcase Thumbnail Sidebar stays empty.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.1-signed.1-signed). 

Diigo Web Collector - Capture and Annotate

Disgusting Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Used to be good, but has become an absolute no-go since it puts ads at the top of Google search results that viciously appear just the moment you try to click on a search result, such that you end up clicking on the fiendish ad instead.

Yuck, this is the most nauseating ultra-socialist fagness failage I have ever seen in an add-on.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.1.0.33.1-signed.1-signed). 

Multiple Addon Deactivator

Not of much use for me because addons config state can't be saved/restored Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This is a nice addon, but I keep waiting for the missing feature of saving/restoring the configuration state of all addons.

I have like 50 addons with like 15 disabled, and there is no way to disable most or all addons, and then re-enable the ca. 35 addons that were enabled before.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.6.1-signed.1-signed). 

Remove Duplicate Messages (Alternate)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

> If you're asking about choosing which message to remove - read/unread, bigger/smaller

Yes.

> this is possible using column sorting in the review dialog.

OK I see, at least for "size" which is what I need. Thanks

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.7). 

FlashVideoReplacer

Does not detect "hidden" flash videos Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Same problem as with all other flash <layer highlight="term-2" class="searchwp-term searchwp-highlight-searchwp-highlighting">video</layer> downloaders/detectors/replacers: does NOT work on custom <layer highlight="term-2" class="searchwp-term searchwp-highlight-searchwp-highlighting">video</layer> sites, like for example here:
http://www.daf.fm/<layer highlight="term-2" class="searchwp-term searchwp-highlight-searchwp-highlighting">video</layer>/prof-dr-bocker-silber-1000---gold-50000-50152065-DE000A0S9GB0.html

WHY is that so?

MediaPlayerConnectivity

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

MediaPlayerConnectivity has NEVER detected a single video stream. I have tried this extension so many times over the years -- for me, every time it was completely useless

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.3). 

Smplayer context menu

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Does not work with Youtube links (SMPlayer DOES accept youtube links and plays the video)

Readability

WTF -- now RDD.me is also disimproved for the worse Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I used to give lots of rdd.me-links to people. Now the Readability team also has broken this functionality. Rdd.me links now show the original web page first, and people need to click on a Readability hyperlink in order to show the stripped down view.

Don't you hate it when products get disimproved and bloated over time -- like Readability?

I sure do.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Tab Sidebar Reloaded

Great work, thanks! And some feature requests please Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Thank you heaps for the great work and for reviving this great extension!

From my experience (with Firefox Showcase), I'd very much like to have option settings for:

- hiding the navigation bars at top/bottom
- hiding the preview popup on mouseover
- disable thumbnails scrolling (instead show all thumbnails, making them smaller and showing multiple rows if necessary)
- enable "flst" aka "focus last selected tab" (if clicking on the thumbnail of the currently active tab) for easier navigation back to the last viewed tab

Thank you already for consideration
Cheers David.P

Readability

Yuck, uninstalling Rated 1 out of 5 stars

don't need no bloated "platform" thanks

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1). 

Filter_Copy

What does it do? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

.

Thumbnail Zoom

Google Images Support is broken Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Doesn't work for Google's "ultra-socialist fagness failage" Images :-(

Context Highlight

Great but still to complicated Rated 3 out of 5 stars

For multiple highlights, the "right-click and hold Ctrl." approach still is much too complicated. There should be an option in order for Context Highlight to work like Highlight All in Chrome: you simply double-click on a word, and every instance of that word on the page gets highlighted. Then you double-click on another word, and every instance of that other word gets highlighted, too -- in another color:

This is incredibly useful for quick text analysis or fast-reading!

Please make this available, as an option!

Thank you

New Mail Attention

used to work but latest version is broken Rated 2 out of 5 stars
