NewTab&Swipe Navigation

Makes Firefox unusable because of the gestures Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Like the others say: the gesture sucks. Here a version without it: is.gd/ffanewtab (I commented out all the gesture stuff). I thought a while this was a Firefox bug till I noticed that this add-on does gestures too. To scroll down or up with this gesture is a pain, because very often it switches the tab instead of scrolling. Without the gesture (see above link) it is a nice Add-On :)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2). 

Video DownloadHelper

Version 5 works again on FF 36 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I installed Version 5.0.0a1 from:
https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/video-downloadhelper-5
exactly:
http://www.downloadhelper.net/install-beta.php?version=5.0.0a1
and it works again with FF 36 :)
The downloads are not anymore controlled in the FF Download Window, but never mind. I can see the progress in the Video DownloadHelper's PopUp.
This add-On is the only I know which downloads any stream I could view in the many many streaming portals. I just open the stream, start to view it and then the Icon of VDH starts turning. I can then download the very same stream and then I stop viewing the stream that I dont download it twice (and loose bandwith).
Works mostly.
Thanks

Ghostery

Disables Firefox settings and sells user data Rated 1 out of 5 stars

As posted before from Kevin Windham, this Add-On just breaks the Firefox settings dialog. The dialog is totally empty if Ghostery is enabled. Not only the settings dialog, other dialogs too. And some sites are not working with this extension, nothing to do with unwanted Trackers etc.
Another, even much more severe thing is, that Ghostery collects the user data (if Ghostrank is activated) to sell them to industry, as I can read in an article about Ghostery.
So this buggy Add-On is a kind of Spyware and not an Add-On against Spying.
Uninstall and forget.

Provider for Google Calendar

Very useful Add-On! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you for this Add-On, I use it since long with lightning.
Since some days I noticed that there is no entry anymore and I read here about it. I just needed to delete the google calendar in Lightning and recreate it, then I was asked to allow the Add-On to edit the Google calendar and again it worked.
It is a new system now, previously access was through the XML string in the calendar settings on google, now it is through a session string I guess.

Folderpane Tools

Use "Manually Sort Folders 1.1" Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This Add-On is now forever broken, it seems.
So I looked around and like another here posted (user "RDL"), the only reason why I used Folderpane Tools was to set the Local Folder on top position.

Always I used the much better Add-On "Manually Sort Folders", which I thought just could not set the Local Folder on the first position, but this wrong!

It only has to be set as Default Folder (on the first tab right side in the middle) and after TB restart the Local Folder is the top one.
See this on github: https://github.com/protz/Manually-Sort-Folders/issues/30

So no need at all to fix this Folderpane Tools, just use the Manually Sort Folders Add-On for good :)

Find Toolbar Tweaks

Add-On is abandoned. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Not working on Firefox 32.0
Use instead the newer Findbar Tweak, this is working.

Works on FF29 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great and very useful Add-On! One of my main Add-Ons I use.
Was shortly broken on Firefox 29 but fastly fixed.

Quick Gestures

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

On FF 27 Beta and SGS2 I nearly always get: "Gesture canceled". I never was able to get one gesture done.

Proxy Mobile

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Not compatible with FF 27 Beta.

Network Preferences Add-on

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Will comment it, when it reaches at least beta stadium. At the moment it is too annoying only to change the "Configure Proxies" Setting from 5 to 1 (to enable).
2014-01-08 on SGS2 with 4.1.2

Save As TXT

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

For this work: thanks

Contact Tabs

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Sehr nützliches Add-On um die verstaubte Bearbeitungsmöglichkeit von Thunderbirds Kontakten erheblich zu erweitern.
Version 2.0.4 hat ein kleines Problem mit dem Chat-Tab, aber das wird bald behoben.

CookieSwap

Great Add-On Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This Add-On is one of the most useful Add-Ons that Firefox make the browser I use since a long time and other browser just never reached in functionality because of these Add-Ons.
With CookieSwap I can set several Cookie-Identities and just switch e.g. between different GMail accounts by clicking another identity.
The cookies (which represents the logins) are saved and restored.
Very useful Add-On.
It just doesn't work with the "new" private mode of firefox, it is then deactivated, but this is by firefox-design and cannot be changed yet.

SendVia

Not working dead Add-On Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Since long not anymore supported.
When installed with neglecting the TB version this extension seems to work, but doesn't.

Phony

Please add custom agent Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Nice add-on but without a custom agent it is a bit poor. Only three different agents is not much, but it could be so easy to add more.
I guess the development for this add-on just started. I hope it ;)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.6). 

German Dictionary, classical spelling standards

Es lebe die deutsche Rechtschreibreform! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Bei mir stand erst:

"Nicht verfügbar für Thunderbird 2.0.0.23"

Ich musste dann in den Thunderbird Einstellungen (about:config) die Einstellung für: "general.useragent.override" auf den Standardwert zurücksetzen, dann ging es wieder.

Danke für das Add-On.

Google+ Tab

Browser not supported Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This is the message (german) I get:

"Ihr Browser wird nicht mehr unterstützt.

Ihr Browser wird von Google+ nicht mehr unterstützt. Bitte aktualisieren Sie Ihren Browser. Weitere Informationen"

This means that the browser (Thunderbird 17 inline Browser) is not supported anymore.

Please fix this Add-On for Thunderbird 17

Thanks.

Add Bookmark Here ²

Broken since FF 16 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Like all the others I have the Bug with "tree expanding/collapsing" in the bookmark popup.It is on Mac OS X 10.6.8 and on Windows XP the same.Firefox 16.02Hope that it will be fixed or magically working again like told here:http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=48&t=522643&start=449Because this was one of the most useful Add-Ons in Firefox, I use the shortcuts and description very often.
But the other Add-On "Edit-Bookmark-Plus" is really not an alternative!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (13.0.20120505). 

Edit Bookmark Plus

Too simple. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This Add-On is not doing much.
The only interesting feature is the resize of the bookmark PopUp Window.
I had previously "Add Bookmark here" but this is broken at the moment with Firefox 16, the folders don't expand, so I tried this Add-On.
Unfortunately there is no description and no shortcut field, two of the most important fields I know from Add Bookmarks Here.
So uninstall and waiting for a fix on Add Bookmarks Here :(

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2.3).
