HYPER-ANCHOR

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This program works very well. Create to Bookmarks Manager or the clip board. Great. There is one problem. Created bookmarks REQUIRE Hyper-Anchor installed to work.

Advanced bookmaks Add-on

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This add-on is NOT all that useful. While it does do its job of creating bookmarks based on web page location, the bookmark is stored in such a way that there is only ONE way to get at them. Also, you can NOT share these bookmarks with others.

Cockpit Home Page

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This is a very good program. BUT, I discovered several MAJOR FLAWS !
1) after loading the program, Firefox had to re-start. My computer LOCKED-UP !
2) I like the buttons (history, bookmarks . . . . .) are on top. I found the switch
that puts them on the right side. BUT, there is no button to put it back on top.
I had to open the about:config to reset this.
3) If the page elements go below the bottom of the page, there is NO SCROLL
to move the page down. When I had the buttons (see 2) on the right, not all
of them could be reached.
Please correct these. Still a great program.

This is a great ! ! But the information needs to be upgraded. There are a LOT of settings
now with no descriptions. Please Update.

Load Tab on select

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This is great in theory, but it causes too much interference with Firefox. Please work on this.

Rights To Close

Looks good but. . . . . Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Just updated to FF27, then learned about RTC. RTC does not respond. The options work,
but not closethe browser tab. I also have to agree with FF-17esr. When I double click,
my dictionary pops up.

Sorry, Problem Rated 2 out of 5 stars

QD has a problem. For a while now,when I use my spell checker,
it will display a list of corrections. But lately, not only does it display
the current word, and all of the old look-ups as well.It ended when I disabled QD.

disallow Script Button

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

So far, I landed on the FBI (you know
the one) 3 times. The first two times
I was able to get myself out,
but who wants to go to
battle with a rouge program.
But this last time,
I used the '''''disallow Script Button'''''.
I was on my way in seconds.
Excellent Work ! ! !

Bing Results Remover

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I did a search on Bing. Then I selected to remove a site. FF crashed. I restarted FF, the same Bing search came back, FF crashed again. I disabled the ad-on, no crash

Encrypted Communication

Just One Small Thing.... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I gave it a try. Very nice. But you made one error. The encrypt
takes place in a message box, and that is good. But the part
of the message you want to decrypt might not be in a message box.
In order to use decrypt you may need to copy the message to
a message box first. Set the program so that marked text
can be decrypted. A great program.

Caret Out

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I was having problems with my up, Down, Page Up,and all the other
control keys. Then I read about the caret key, and this add-on. Now the
keys are working as they should. Many thanks.
