New Tab Override (browser.newtab.url replacement)

Regretfully it still doesn't work on FF v43.0.1 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a really wonderful add-on, until FF -again- changed their 'new tab' handling. How frustrating. One needs workarounds to get FF working the same way as before. I don't need the crap of suggested sites, or a blanc page. My homepage is google.com/ncr. That is what I want to when clicking on a new tab. Firefox is a nice browser, but I hate this 'move'.

Hopefully Sören will (again) be able to solve this soon.

BTW seems the New Tab Override add-on does not automatically update?
Just discovered that I need to manually update it.
Latest version 2.2 (19-12-2015)
Whereas my installed version was still v2.1 (30-11-2015)

My settings:
Options: Select - Custom URL
URL: www.google.com/ncr

=
Later: the latest version works fine, but custom URL doesn't work.
As for me: I have set it to Homepage
my homepage is www.google.com/ncr
others may wish to have a different page.

New Tab Override (browser.newtab.url replacement)

Exacty what I was looking for! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you so much. The add-on works wonderful. Seems more and more workarounds are required to make Firefox v41+ work as before.

Like: to open a link from an email client is now blocked and one is required to set
browser.link.open_newwindow.override.external to 3 in the about:config.

Anyway, thanks again!

Zilla Spec

Very nice indeed! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Nice one! Thumbs up. Maybe you could also create one without the 'Firefox-logo'? Your 'gradient grey' is nice, luckily not too dark. Some other themes are very dark / or black. Soft grey or soft blue are much better. A matter of taste, I know... :-)

DownThemAll!

Very nice, but .. no updates anymore? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Definitely a great tool!
Their latest version (v.2.0.17 is of July 2014).
Their v.3.0 (5th beta) has been released 1,5 years ago, July 2013.. Has the development come to a standstill? Hope not.

Zoom Page

Really very useful Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great add-on! Often I need a screenshot of a website where the developer decided much too big buttons and lots of empty space. Reducing to 80% is the solution.

I have not been able to create a custom zoom-level. Repeatedly tried fo validate and apply
30-50-67-70-75-80-90-100-110-120-135-150-175-200-250-300-400-500
Regretfully these zoomlevels donot stick, i.e. "C:" remains 100.

However, that aside, good tool!

DownThemAll!

Good - for YouTube I depend on BYTubeD (development stopped) Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Fine tool.
Regretfully however, it is not able to download Youtube videos under user-account-videomanagement (like 'watch later', etc).

For this I use BYTubeD as a workaround.
BYTubed is not being developed anymore but still works nicely.
It generates hyperlinks in a separate browsertab for all or selected videos.
Then I start DTA to download those videos based, based on these hyperlinks.
It would be nice if this was implemented in DTA.

For Youtube videomanagement DTA+BYTubed is a splendid combo.

Quick Locale Switcher

Useless, doesn't work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Sorry, gave up trying, doesn't work. I uninstalled it.

Zoom Page

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

FF 24, Zoompage 7.0 - regret it does not show up on in the toolbar. Removed the add on, re-installed it. Nothing.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (7.0.1-signed). 

Clip to OneNote

Good tool, create "New note" seems to be missing Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It is a good tool, however, it lacks the same functionality as the IE9/OneNote combo: sending.. anything from IE to OneNote will create a new page.

Regretfully that option seems not to be available.
Instead one has to copy-paste the text into all separate OneNote sessions (for that reason the add-on obviously is named Clip to OneNote)

Hopefully, one day, the developer will be able to put this option into his add-on.

Keep up the good work!

Photobucket Uploader (unofficial)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very nice indeed. Works really fine.

Wish I could add (copy/paste) text from source website, just before sending the image to Photobucket. Text then automatically to be added as 'Title'.

But apart from that, wonderful tool!

BYTubeD - Bulk YouTube video Downloader

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is really great!!

Over years I have tried out many YouTube downloaders and actually bought a few.
But after some time I discovered they all had some flaws (such as:not being able to download playlists,
or only downloading the commercials at the start of a video, lack of support to solve that issue, etc)

Forget all the different YouTube downloaders - just use this add-on!
