My Reviews

LeechBlock

I am productive again!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I just tried to log on to facebook to check on someone who had crossed my mind. I did this as a matter of reflex, not even thinking about it. I used to do this routinely for hours just sucking up my day. Now I get this message:

"The page you're attempting to access has been blocked by LeechBlock."

And it snaps me out of my dream.

Thank you

LeechBlock

Perfect Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Since I use my own laptop at work, there's no office filter to stop me wasting my whole day on facebook, tmz, and google news. This addon is perfect and keeps me from losing half the day.

Firefox 2, the theme, reloaded

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

for Firefox 4+, go to the bottom of the page and click on "Development Channel". Sooo nice to be able to upgrade to Firefox 7. I had been waiting for this theme to support my switch because I hate everything FF have done with the interface since 2.

Thankyou Thankyou Thankyou

Firefox 2 theme for Firefox 4+

Not nearly enough Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Only the look, not enough of the functionality

Save Session

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

this is one of my favourite addons. just re-downloading it for a new install. This should be the default behaviour of firefox so we don't have to deal with all this "would you like to save your tabs?" business.

always gives me the option of saving, I don't use the button, just the "save session and exit" option from the file menu. no extra effort than exiting as normal.

thank you to the author for keeping this extension up, have been using it for at least 5 years.

Adblock Plus

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

most essential addon. Whenever I'm in a Library or somesuch using their computers with no adblock, I find myself baffled by how many annoying blinky and sometimes disgusting ads there are. I'm so used to life without them with adblock.

cheers

Cylence Theme (for Thunderbird 2)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

ditto ShadoByte.

I adore this theme, so I haven't been able to upgrade to 3 for fear of losing it.

Easy YouTube Video Downloader

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I Love this extension. The most recent update fixed the HD button and it now shows up.

Perfect, non-intrusive, and effective. It's the only Youtube extension which lets you choose the download quality instead of taking the flv and converting it.

Stylish

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

ah ha ha ha ha, no more messing with Accessibar and the zoom function to change text colour and size! this is a heaven sent. I like to read online and the black text on white hurts my eyes. with this i can switch sites to a soothing grey on black and switch back whenever I want, no need to reload the page. I'm in love

Red Cats (green flavor)

Love it Rated 5 out of 5 stars

you see this theme at first, and chuckle and move on. I've done this so many times over the years that i finally gave it a shot. For something that looks silly at first, it's very thoughtfully done. It's more intuative, nicer looking, and easier to use than any other theme I've ever used. The green is soft and gentle on the eyes and the cats make me smile every time I look at them while also serving their purpose of directing your actions.

Bravo

Tango 3

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I like what I see so far. Just installed it. It's sooo much nicer than the native KDE icons firefox 3 picks up

Tango

please update for windows ff3 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love this theme and regretted giving it up when I made the switch to FF3.

Please update it for FF3.

Cheers

dragdropupload

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love this extension, It makes attaching files and uploading them sooo much easier when you need to do many at once and the site doesn't have the capability.

Download Statusbar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a must. This extension is perfect, you can set absolutely every option you'd need to and it replaces the annoying pop-up download box.

This should be part of the distribution.

Copy Plain Text

perfect Rated 5 out of 5 stars

does exactly what it's supposed to. makes copying large amounts of text with tables a lot easier..

Accessibar

good, a couple flaws Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I love this extension for the way I can change long black print on white background articles and other readibles to grey text on black background. It's much easier on my eyes. For text size buttons I reccomend the toolbar buttons extension instead because this one is three button spaces wide and requires you to have al three on the bar at once. Also, when you use tabs, changing one tab's template causes the others to also change once they are refreshed. All in all, i find it very useful
