In a little more detail...

I have been a loyal Mozilla user since Mozilla began producing generally available products. I do prefer iOS over Android - no Mozilla on my iPhone and iPad (sad).

My Reviews

Adguard AdBlocker

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The best ad blocker around. I've been using this for months on my iPad, iPhone and both of my Macs. I use it with Firefox, Safari, and Chrome. It consistently blocks all things I do not want to see, I have no problems seeing what I choose to accept, and it provides a more than acceptable level of customization by way of configuration and selection of standard and proven subscription choices. I've tried the rest over the years and Adguard is definitely the best.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.7.3). 

Simple White

My New Favorite Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've been looking all over for something minimalistic that did not turn me off or that did not have something weird. This complete theme is what I have been looking for. It's simple, I love the developer's style with icons and the presentation of tiles on the about:newtab page. Even the preference panel looks great. Note that I am using for my MBP and iMac running OS X 10.10.1 (Yosemite) with FF 34.0. I am going to try it with an older (ESR) version of Firefox on my Windows 7 work computer when I go back into the office. Thank you, Louis Chan! Great theme :)

P.S. If you have the time, could you consider releasing a second flavor of this complete theme with something like a light slate blue? And maybe a complete theme like this for Thunderbird? Then I'd be in even. Regardless, thank you again for creating and sharing this.

Great Theme Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great theme that works and looks great for the most part! I subtracted one star because -- when it is enabled -- the Status Bar is illegible. The Status Bar content cannot be read -- but it can be interpreted to some degree with excessive focusing of my eyes -- since I first installed this Theme some time ago, and that issue persists through my current versions of Thunderbird (17.0.7) and OS X (10.8.4). Fix the Status Bar issue and I will be happy to give this Theme the five stars it deserves.


Flash Security & Virus Issues Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Might be a great add-on. However, after installing it, and upon restarting Firefox, I received:

-A Flash security warning.
-Two attempts to install the "HTML/Iframe.B.Gen" virus.

Thankfully my ESET Cybersecurity was able to clean things up. I would not recommend installing this add-on until the publisher has addressed the Flash security issue and cleaned up the application (specifically, they remove the "HTML/Iframe.B.Gen" virus from their website which is accessed upon customizing this add-on).
