My Reviews

User Agent RG

Abandonware Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Years ago this one was pretty good. It has long since been abandoned. The dust and cobwebs are growing.

User-Agent Switcher

Nothing Rated 1 out of 5 stars

After installation it failed to be able to generate an icon.

The developer was contacted and there was no response. It looks abandoned.

Bookmark Rater

A good idea never optimized and long since abandoned. Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This was one of those extensions that I always had- but never really used.

The idea of a local bookmark rater was great. I have thousands of websites in my Ultimate List- but unfortunately this one required users to go into properties and rate them there. Also, it only showed if people click on properties- something 99+% of people never are going to do.

What it should have done is create some sort of display either in the bookmark dropdown, sidebar or even in the status bar(You still can have one if you run Palemoon instead of Failfox.)

Fasterfox Lite

More WIPS spyware Rated 1 out of 5 stars

WIPS needs to be banned as their business model goes against everything open source stands for. They buy out old trusted extensions and turn them into spyware.

FastestFox - Browse Faster

Still working- but abandoned Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This still in many ways is a good extension and it should keep working indefinitely- at least on Palemoon. PM is stable and doesn't have Failfox's disastrous UI changes every five minutes.

However, support is done and the developer's email has gone dead. If you try to contact him it will just bounce back as undeliverable.

It might be possible to replace this one with several other extensions- but that would be considerable work putting it all together.

FoxyProxy Standard

Working in Palemoon Rated 4 out of 5 stars

After testing it out for others who wanted proxies it appears to be working well. However, -1 star for deleting the old review. I would have done that on my own.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.5). 

ProxyChanger

Probably abandoned Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Not long ago I set out to test and compare the proxy add-ons. This one had some initial promise- but it also had a bunch of problems.

The developer is unresponsive and this site has a link to a broken blog. Also, the add-on hasn't had an update since 2011. Maybe someone could develop a fork of it. Until then I don't see how this one could be trusted.

FindBar Tweak

Handy Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Although I already had a working "find" setup this does give a number of good improvements. For me the most useful is the multi-tab support. At this very moment I have 327 open and there certainly are situations in which it will come in handy.

Overall it appears well done and I have yet to see any bugs. Good job!

Stylish

2.0 is working spectacularly in Palemoon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

You did it! Stylish was always something handy and and it lives!

Good job!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4.3).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Print Edit

13.2 is working beautifully in Palemoon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

DW-Dev has it together. If there ever is an issue give him a little time and he always comes through.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (13.2).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

AdDetector

Good job Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It took a while to find some sponsored content so I went and used the very articles in the description and it did work.

The idea here is good and so far the execution is working.

Lastly, despite whatever nonsense Mozilla says it works just fine in Palemoon(25.1 x64)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.17). 

Toggle Persona

Barely worth the bother Rated 2 out of 5 stars

It barely works and the developer doesn't respond to simple questions.

The bottom line is almost anything related to personas probably is more trouble than it is worth.

Suspend Tab

Dead and probably abandoned Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It also isn't working in Palemoon. I have been blitzing the tab suspenders and frankly none of them are worth a rip. There is an opening here for a developer who wants to cut the mustard.

This one failed and I wrote the developer in 2 languages and gave him weeks to respond. I thought about it and he also hadn't responded to mails from years back with other failed add-ons.

IMO Piro_or was once on it- but apparently he has vanished. Be warned.

Extension Options Menu

Great for TB/FM, dead in Palemoon Rated 3 out of 5 stars

As of late 2014 this simultaneously is both 1* and 5*.

It still works beautifully for email but dead in Palemoon- hence the average of 3*

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.9). 

Add-on Update Checker

Barely working in Palemoon. Rated 2 out of 5 stars

It is a shame because for a while this one actually was pretty handy. Now that that GUID has been changed it renders this one virtually useless.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.7). 

Tile Tabs

DW Dev has it together Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you for the Palemoon update! Well done!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (11.13). 

Customize Titlebar

Still working Rated 4 out of 5 stars

In Palemoon 25.02 it is working nice and fine. Plus I really enjoy installing things that Mozilla tries to tell me I can't.

CommentBlocker

Dead in Palemoon Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It never was perfect- but it gave a powerful and much needed function.

Unfortunately the developer is overwhelmed and someone needs to fork this to maintain development. In my limited contact with him he seemed like a decent fellow- but for development to move forwards it probably needs someone else to take over.

BarTab Heavy

It blocks tabs from loading Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I would have written first but there apparently is no contact information on the page.

When enabled it prevents tabs from initially loading with no option to toggle this behavior. The rest of the suspension functions appear to work- but that is a rather glaring flaw.

If you could look into it an perhaps issue a patch this add-on could be really handy.

ProfileSwitcher

Handy in certain situations Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I gave it 4 stars because it is a part-timer- but a handy one at that.

It is true that we can manage profiles manually- but it is kinda clunky. Most of the people who I help with tech aren't hardcore techies and anything to make tech less geeky helps.

One person that I help out kept saying that I put too much stuff on her Palemoon. I started it back up with a bare profile. Although it would be possible to do this manually this way is just plain easier. As soon as she started loading pages blasting her out of her chair with ads and a browser that lost a whole bunch of capabilities she wanted the full setup back and never complained again...
