Locationbar³

works ok, but doesn't handle domains properly Rated 4 out of 5 stars

you can't click to remove a sub-domain, so you can't go from "sub.domain.com/dir/file" to "domain.com"

smart location was the best, but it's no longer maintained

All About Location Bar

Needs a little bit of work Rated 3 out of 5 stars

i like the add-on, but the truncate and go logic applies to domains as well as the rest of the url - this makes it impossible to go from sub.domain.com to domain.com, because everything after sub. is removed

SearchBox Sync

broken Rated 2 out of 5 stars

does not save custom search settings after browser restart

Adblock Edge

seems to work well, needs a little polish Rated 4 out of 5 stars

no bug reports here - i know - but i'm doing so anyway as it is totally inconvenient to register for some site which i will likely never use again EVERY time i find a bug in an ext. - i wish the extension devs and mozilla worked together to make it more easy for users to file bug reports here!

ABE seems to conflict with the NoScript toolbar icon context menu in that it can cause about 1/2 of the menu items to not display - something i ran into a long time ago with ABP i think.

if the malware domains list is supposed to block access to those sites, then it appears something is very wrong, as it does not do so (and that subscription is the 1st in the chain)

win7
ff 28
ABE 2.1

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

Copy All Links

Works well - needs polish :) Rated 4 out of 5 stars

would suggest placing the context menu in the proper place, below 'copy link location'

would also be nice to be able to draw a rectangular selection like Snap Links Plus does

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1). 

Snap Links Plus

like it, but it needs work Rated 4 out of 5 stars

it can cause quite a long delay when r-clicking (without moving cursor) until context menu appears, but apparently only on some sites

example...
imdb.com/search/title?at=0&count=100

Flagfox

wow - v5 is quite a piece of work! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

just a couple little things i don't like...

i think the url in the address bar should be used for the various queries, rather than the url of the loaded page - i think that would be quite useful in a number of cases - along with that, the icon would need to be visible at all times so one could enter an address in a blank tab and preform a query

the flag icons still bug me a bit - the standard icons in the address bar are all monochrome (on win at least) and i think it would be good to have an option of monochrome flags

with as many services as there are, and perhaps more to come, i think it's time to add the ability to better organize them with folders and separators

consider adding ability to use '\n' or '\r\n' or something that will be converted to a return/line feed - useful for "copystring:" operations

great add-on other than those minor niggles :)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.0.0). 

YouTube Center

needs work Rated 3 out of 5 stars

YTC is one of the best scripts out there for YT as far as its feature set, but it hasn't worked right for me in quite a while (at least the last several versions)

issue 1: whenever i load a video on youtube, i have to click the play button twice before it plays - the 1st time a screen cap loads and it starts buffering, but in about a second it's black again and the play button has to be clicked again

issue 2: i can NOT get a youtube page to load with the video resolution at HD/720 - it always loads at low res and then if i go full-screen, the video stops and re-bufferes as it changes to hi-res, then continues to play

i reported #1 on github, but not #2 - sorry - lazy :)

2.1.0 on FF 26.x/27.x and win 7

BetterStop

works-a-treat! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

thanks for restoring what never should have been removed in the first place :)

works fine on 27, which contains the gif animation bug

Disconnect

Disable counter Rated 5 out of 5 stars

version 3.10.0 finally has an option to hide the annoying counter (which can cause adjacent tool-bar items to change position)

thanks Disconnect devs!

to enable/disable the counter...
about:config
search for:
extensions.disconnect.blockingIndicated
set to true or false

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.10.0).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Pure URL

what about redirects? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

as long as we are talking "pure" URL's, why not strip out redirects?

other than that, i like the extension :)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.1). 

Disconnect

like it, except for... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

...the annoying green counter - very bad idea and it looks like it is not possible to remove

Disconnect seems to be a fiddle-free extension for the most part, so why does it need a counter at all?

please change the icon color instead and dump the counter :)

and for the web-knowledgeable, you can dump the built-in whitelist and replace it with:
{"":{"Google":false,"Twitter":false,"Yahoo":false,"Facebook":false,"LinkedIn":false}}
note that this may/will break some sites!
the pref is:
extensions.disconnect.whitelist

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.9.1).
