YouTube Center

DOES NOT WORK SINCE APRIL 2014. DEVELOPER WILL NOT FIX IT. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Thumbnails settings only work on the YouTube homepage.
The thumbnail animation, rating bar and rating count setting do not work for thumbnails on any other page in YouTube. I have tried the userscript version of this add-on and have had the same problem. I even tried a clean Firefox profile with no luck.

Also, the default player size settings are causing a major problem with the video player being much larger than the program window (a ridiculously huge video player) which makes it sometimes impossible to find the "small" size button to shrink it. Very annoying.

YouTube is breaking things again.... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love this add-on and I have been using it for at least 3 years now....

However, as of October 16, 2013
Youtube has made some kind of update which interferes with the operation of ALL YouTube video downloaders. This change causes some videos to download short and incomplete files. It also causes some videos to not download at all, instead it while display a "server error" in add-on windows such as "DownloadThemAll(DTA).

Also, please note that the developer of an add-on called "BYTubeD" had mentioned this issue recently on his blog and he has decided to discontinue his add-on because of it.He said that the issue has something to do with YouTube randomly encrypting certain video links now. So that is the problem!

I have tried other YouTube add-ons and video downloaders but I still get the same problem. This issue may also be the reason why some videos will not download in 1080p (for the people on here that are having that problem).

Goodness, why can't YouTube just leave well enough alone?
"If it's not broken then don't try to fix it."

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here is an excerpt from the blog post I mentioned above:

" Previously YouTube used to change things in ways which were easy to adapt to. Now they have started encrypting some portions of the video URLs. And the encryption schemes are sufficiently random to consider the effort of chasing around these changes to be futile, if at all legitimate.

So, highly probably BYTubeD will never be back again in its normal working condition.{...}
I have disabled the add-on on addons.mozilla.org.

I do not have any plans to resurrect BYTubeD, given the state of affairs. Programmers who think they have enough time to spend on hacking the encrypted URLs can get the existing code of BYTubeD from here and try to modify it. "

Bookmark Deduplicator

Fantastic and Easy!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Would give it 10 stars if I could. Anyone who has ever imported bookmarks from other browsers into Firefox knows that it can turn your bookmarks folder into a hot mess! If you have Firefox Sync turned on, it's even worse. Over 1000 duplicates. This add-on helped me remove 1496 duplicates with the click of a button. It does leave empty folders behind, but you can easily delete them by using Firefox's built in bookmarks manager in tree-view. I would rather check for a few empty folders on my own than to search for and manually delete 1496 duplicates. To the Developer: I can't thank you enough.

Note: If you use Firefox sync (or another bookmark syncing add-on)...TURN IT OFF before you start to delete duplicates and organize you bookmarks. You may want to backup your then "organized" bookmarks to a .json or html file, then go to each of your devices that are synced, erase the bookmarks that are on that device then choose "restore bookmarks from the file". If you don't do this, the next time sync occurs it will recreate all the duplicates you got rid of and ruin the organization of your bookmarks. After these steps are done, it should be safe to turn on sync again.

BYTubeD - Bulk YouTube video Downloader

PURE GENIUS! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I luv this add-on. Not only does it work with ease, but it gives me a list of videos found on the page to choose from along with titles & video length. It doesn't produce unnecessary duplicates (like other addons). I can use it with DTA add-on! Thank you!

YouTube Grid Search

Nice Idea, But.... Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It only shows the first 20 letters of the title of each video BUT cuts off the rest.

If you are looking up episodes of a show (which all begin with the same name), this can be a big problem. please fix.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4.4).

So, So. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Something about the new YouTube design causes the ratings to not appear on some videos in the list.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.6). 

YTshowRating

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Can someone please make an add-on that still works AFTER you press the "Load more suggestions" button at the bottom of the list on YouTube???

Also, this add-on tends to not appear for some video that are in the MIDDLE of the list.

Youtube Ratings Preview

It works...sort of. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It works on video mentioned in the "suggested videos" list on the right side, but when you press the "load more suggestions" button at the bottom - it will not work when the extra videos are loaded.

Also, it does not work on videos shown from your subscriptions on the main page.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.03). 

NewTabURL

Very good add-on (....just one issue). Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have been using this add-on for 2 years now and I love it. Only recently (Jan. 10, 2012), I ran into a problem. Every time I started Firefox (4.0), multiple tabs would open to the homepage repeatedly with no way to stop it. Here is what I tried:

Start Firefox and IMMEDIATELY go to Tools> Add-Ons> Extensions > NewTabUrl > Options

and uncheck "Always Keep a New Tab Open" then close Firefox and start Firefox again.

This fixed the problem and stopped Firefox from opening multiple homepage tabs like crazy upon starting.

I don't know if this is a glitch in NewTabUrl or a conflict it may have with another add-on. But this was an easy fix. If anyone else is having this problem but this solution does not work for you, try creating a new Firefox profile with no add-ons. To do this - In windows, close Firefox then click Start > Run, type: Firefox.exe -p
Select create. Check "Always ask". Open Firefox with this new profile. If the problem stopped, you will need to close Firefox and then open Firefox again using your old profile (or safe mode) and disable all adds-ons, restart Firefox and then re-enable them one by one until you find out which is causing the issue. If you find that the add-ons are not the problem, try downloading a program called tdskiller.exe as you may have a rootkit on your system.
