My Reviews

Add to Search Bar

Needs some more love Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The "Add engine to search bar" dialog shows up in the wrong place. I have firefox on my second screen, and the dialog shows up on the first. Placement of the dialog shows be similar to firefox's own dialogs, i.e. in the middle of the active Firefox window. And sometimes the window appears almost empty. Weird.

Secondly, After inputting a keyword, Enter or clicking OK doesn't dismiss the dialog. Instead, it silently adds it to the search engine list.

So the workflow is:
1) Right click
2) Select Add to Search Bar
3) Move my focus to my other screen
4) Type a keyword
5) Grab the mouse again
6) Click OK
7) Click Cancel

Desired:
1) Right click
2) Select Add to Search Bar
3) Focus is at the "keyword" field, so type a keyword
4) Hit Enter, and be done.

Can you please provide a fix?

Download YouTube Videos as MP4

1080p solution Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Dear author, here's how to 1080p:

Download the audioless mp4 and aac audio files. Then:
ffmpeg -i foo.mp4 -i foo.aac -c copy -f mp4 result.mp4

See? It's not complicated at all. It's dead-easy actually.

BestVideoDownloader 2 - YouTube Downloader MP3 MP4

No 1080p Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Works well, but no 1080p download.

Video DownloadHelper

No 1080p on YouTube Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Sorta works. The prefixes in the dropdown are useless. I have no way of knowing what half of them mean. Should simply be the same as in the quality menu when on youtube.

More importantly, 1080p downloads do not appear in the list at all.

Less importantly, clicking the button, not the dropdown, shows a list of all supported video sites. Not very useful as the "main action" for the button.

So, almost there. Give it some love.

Youtube and more – Easy Video Downloader

Download progress Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Kinda works. Contains adware, the popup acts weird (please loose the animation) but above all: no download progress anywhere at all. Also bypasses Firefox's own download manager. Nasty.

BestVideoDownloader 2 - YouTube Downloader MP3 MP4

Doesn't work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I can't see it doing anything at all.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.3). 

YouTube Downloader Lite

Works almost fine, but NOT in a private window Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Works, but NOT in a private window. Why not? Does it do something privacy sensetive? I sure hope not.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.2). 

FireGestures

Initiate from tab Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works fine. Just like Opera when it was still its own browser.

Please enable initiating a gesture from a tab, so a gesture applies to that tab. That way, the "close tab" gesture can be applied to an inactive tab.

Tab Utilities

Can't move window Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The plugin works alright, but not being able to move the Firefox window anymore is disappointing. By browser is not always full-screen, so this is quite an issue for me. Also, right-clicking does not pop up the default window menu (same as alt+space).

Another problem is that Ctrl/Shift + arrow buttons should remain at their default behaviour when a text input is selected, no matter what the options might be. Because when typing, one expects skipping/selecting whole words using Ctrl/Shift+arrows to work.

FireQuery

Doesn't work anymore Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Since some modern version of jQuery and/or Firebug, this plugin doesn't work. Yes, it shows data, but it's supposed to show events, too, which are much harder to get your hands on from the console.

Plus, the developer let out on his forum that he no longer develops this plugin.

Display Quota

Works, but needs some more love Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This works. Let that be clear.In the options, the Smaller and Larger buttons don't do anything. I'm not sure what they are supposed to do, but I don't see anything changing when I click them, so there's that.
Secondly, the progressbar in the statusbar constantly animates, which is distracting. Should be disabled.
Windows 7 x64, Thunderbird 24.2.0

/edit
@Developer: perhaps you can use the progressbar that's also on the Quota tab on the dialog you get when going Inbox->Properties. It looks different (purple in my case) and doesn't animate.

/edit2
@Mozilla: don't remove newlines from my review please.

Mark All Read Button

Works fine, looks weird Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The button works just fine and in the toolbar it looks fine. But in the context menu, when right-clicking a folder, it looks weird. It's displaced to the left as compared to the other items.
