My Reviews

Easy Youtube Video Downloader Express

Super, yes... but why does it not work on some videos on YouTube ? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hello !
Great add-on, yes !
But a simple question :
how come it does not show the download button on some videos ?
an example you may try, a russian B/W movie I'd like to download :
url http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ll1Wdob2P1E
or another one, this time in colour :
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yia2azQd4GY
Is is because the add doesn't recognise the cyrilic characters ?
Ibut it should not be for this reason, because for
other russian movies, the button appears, and the download is possible
wonder....
In case you could adjust that for a next update that would just be great :-)
As a B/W, foreign and rare movie fan, I'd love that !
I wish anyhow you can answer to this question
However, best regards from Geneva, Switzerland :-)

edit :
Quick and reactive clear answer to my question !
Thanks for taking time to answer :-)

ShareMeNot

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent privacy add !

Use it since a few monthes, and forgot to leave a comment...

As I learned out that even not being connected to your Facebook and consort accounts,
FB & Co were able to link your searches just in case there was any "Like" button on the page,
and even without clicking on it just amazed me...
Did not like it at all as I am not a fan of those "social networks"...
and as in the same time discovered there was a way to control it,
using the ShareMeNot add, I straightforward adopted it !

Better late than never : Thanks a lot :-)

about:addons-memory

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Wow !!!

What I was looking for... for years... :-)

Because unless you're a real tech pro and even so,
the "basic" Firefox "about:memory" is far too complex (at least for me)
and I could never figure out "which add-on is doing what"...

10 stars and...

10'000 lives, as were used Chinese to whish Long Live to their Emperor !

Will keep the xpi file aside, in case Mozilla would remove it,
as I see it is experimental.

As already been said, should be in Firefox natively installed !

So thanks a lot :-)

Link Status Redux

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works finally with my Firefox 19.0 !

Had a hard time with it ! And still don't know why !
However, now I' m glad... :-)

UnPlug

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Strange add...
I use it it since a short wile :
sometimes it works properly, sometimes it doesn't...
It shows results, but nothing happen as I click on "download".
On my second computer doesn't work at all...
I think I'll reinstal Jdownloader, that never fails.
Guess that for whom it works well, a good add... but in my case, only so-so !

MEGA extension

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Seems to be useless !
As already said, there is no download folder to get back your file...
I call it Mega shot !

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.1). 

Link Status Redux

Doesn't work... same story, one year later ! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Truth is that it must have somewhere a real bug, even for Firefox's 17 version, or at least for the French version.
As I passed by to see if anything was updated, I had the pleasant surprise to see it was updated less than a month ago.
Therefore I tried again, but to increase the possibility to have any problem, I create an brand new profile, without any add-on, not theme, etc...
still the same ! Doesn't work !
More surprising is that what is shown on the configuraton pop-up, is the same old version of LSR which doesn't work... ! I guess it's in my Kharma with that b... extension that doesn't work for me :-(
I still miss it ! I admit it's not a pleasant comment, but I'd rather prefer to write a nice one, if it would have worked !!!

CacheViewer Continued

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Very interesting add, yes...

but :
how come it doesn't work properly to clear
more than a few lines, at the same time... ?

Is there a limited possibility for deleting lines ?
(and if yes, how many a the same time ?)

because to choose one by one...
I let you guess :
very unpractical and of course slightly to slow :-)

If ever you have an explanation and an answer,
that would be nice :-)

Until then, sorry but only 3* :-(

Nevetheless, great add for the ones for whom it works well !

Password Exporter

forgot to say thank you :-) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Passing by Mozilla's addons, checking my latest bookmarks' url, I just realized I forgot to say a warm thank you !!!
I'm using Password Exporter since at least 6 or 7 years, and it saved me a lot time, as I sometimes fully reinstall Firefox.
The first time Add-on Compatibilty Reporter told me PassExp doesn't work anylonger, I remember I had almost a heart-attack (joking.... but I've got plenty of passwords); you're kidding me !
Then I deactivated this unpleasant M(aster)F(inal) A-oCR as usual... and everything was fine again. Could reintroduce my passwords, within a minute ! Yes !!!
Therefore as we're used to say in French, better late than never : Thank You !

Link Status

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

What a pity !
It worked for a while again, and now no more :-(
I miss it, I miss it :-)
To the developper : would you have an explanation ?
Kind of you if you would have a solution
for this problem :-)
remark : the score would obvioulsy be 5* if it worked...

Glass - Milk

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Net and clean, very pleasant :-)
Leaves your your browser very effective, not disturbed by colors on the upper part !
Had to disable it for a while because suspected some incompatibility with others adds, but finally the problem came from somewhere else...
As I appreciated it (and used it since the beginning of personnas), I'm glad to have it again :-)
Many thanks !

Search by Image for Google

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works like a charm :-)
I tried TinEye Reverse Image Search before, but frankly this one is far above !
Well done, thank you :-)

Link Status Redux

really possible conflict problem Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Thanks for your answer !
I use Windows XP Pro (don't like 7 !) and my Firefox 8.0 is the Windows 32 bit French version (in Geneva, Switzerland, we're used to speak French :-)
But as I use ~25 adds-on (AdBlock Plus, Autopager, BetterPrivacy, CookiesKiller, Custom Tab Width, Flashblock, Greasemonkey, gTranslate, Mouse Gestures Redox, Movable Firefox Button, NoScript, Nuke Anything Enhanced, Optimize Google, Personnal Menu, Remove New Tab Button, Tab Scope and Add-on Compatibility Reporter + 2 users scripts (Google Bar Classic and Google Hit Hider by Domain), + a few ones generaly deactivated because I use them only once in a while, I think it would be very difficult to find out where the conflict comes from, or it would take too long time... unfortunately...
The Bitacora developer asked me if a use a theme, yes : Glass – Milk http://www.getpersonas.com/en-US/persona/20219
As I answered to him, I will try to deactivate the theme and see if there is a positive reaction from your add !
If ever, I will just add a new comment :-)
That's all... and best regards :-)

Bitacora

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Thanks for your answer !
I didn't see any bug (fortunately or not?) but it simply didn't work for my Fx 8. (I already tried some monthes ago with Fx 4.0)
Yes, I used Glass – Milk http://www.getpersonas.com/en-US/persona/20219
And my Firefox is the Windows 32 bit French version (in Geneva, Switzerland, we're used to speak French :-)
But in fact you give me an idea... will try to deactivate my theme to see how will Bitacora and/or Link Status Redox without it.
If I don't put a new comment very soon, it will mean no positive change interaction between the add and my Fx 8.0

Unfortunately this super add doesn't work anymore since Firefox 3.6...
I really miss it,

Still not... (:-
