My Reviews

Forecastfox Weather

Terrific and always compatible up until Firefox 29 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I hope that a way can be found to make Forecast Fox compatible with Firefox 29+, I really miss it.

I've used it for several years going back maybe a dozen releases and its always worked just fine.

Customizable Shortcuts

It doesn't do what I need Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Due to a neuromuscular illness, on many days I'm a lousy typist.

As part of accommodating my disability, I am looking for a way to turn off most of the shortcuts in Firefox, because I don't use them and when I trigger a shortcut it is always a typo. (The only exceptions are CTRL-A, CTRL-X, CTRL-C and CTRL-V -- those I use.)

I had hoped this tool would let me do it. But it does not seem to be able to do that.

For each of the command options, I can change the shortcut keys, but I cannot eliminate the short cut. Pressing delete merely makes the short cut the DEL key.

This tool would be perfect if there was a way to disable each short cut individually so that no key combination could trigger it.

Copy Plain Text 2

Fantastic tool for share-aholic types like me Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a fantastic tool for share-aholic types like me.

Very simple and easy to set up, and then you can forget it is installed. It saves me a lot of time.

I'm always wanting to email links of interesting pages, and usually I want to cut and paste the title and key paragraph into the email.

With Copy Plain Text there I no longer have to go through extra steps to remove the web page formatting from the email -- it is removed for me by this tool.

It only affects stuff copied from Firefox, and then it does not matter what it is pasted into.

Stuff copied inside, say, from one Word document to another is not affected. Only stuff copied from Firefox is affected. Which is how it should be, it is good.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.1). 

BetterPrivacy

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

There is no search function or filter, so you need to look through all the LSOs to find the ones you are interested in, of which there can be a couple of hundred. Other than that it works fine.

Print pages to Pdf

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a very handy add-in and I really like it.

I see version Version 0.1.9.2 was created to support Firefox version 23, but that FF has not yet approved it.

Hopefully version 0.1.9.2 will be approved and officially available soon, because I really like this add-on.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.9.0). 

LastPass Password Manager

Fantastic tool, I love it! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

(If you are having trouble, go to the lastpass.com website and download the latest version from there. Firefox is slow in delivering updates sometimes.)

I love LastPass !It is very easy to use, and fast.

From time to time there are web pages that don't play nice with it, and that is the only real learning curve, leaving how to create and save passwords on those few very unusual web sites.Lastpass is portable, so same set of userids and passwords can be used with on any device or web browser (Firefox, MSIE, Opera, Chrome, Safari, Android, iPhone, Blackberry, Windows, Mac OS/x, Linux, dozens of browsers and operating systems, even some that are pretty rare).And you can export your userids and passwords. So if at some point in the future LastPass stops living up to your expectations, you can export your passwords and import them into something else.LastPass is completely free for desktops and laptops. But if you want Yubi-key authentication (I don't) or the version for phones and tablets, it is $12 per year.

Shareaholic | share with Google, Facebook and more

Very handy, could use a little maintenance Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Shareaholic is very handy, especially if you share links to more than one place. I tend to share to Facebook, email and StumbleUpon. Sharaholic means one icon in my status bar instead of 3.

And shareaholic will insert the web page name into the email title and copy any highlighted text on the web page you are sharing and paste it the email (Windows Live email tool, maybe other email tools too).

The only thing I do not like is that it has had this long standing bug where instead of copying special characters it copies some kind of representation. For example, opening and closing quotes end up as %u2018 and %u2019.

So that means a little manual fixing up. I wish they would fix that, but it is still a very handy tool and the one I currently use.

QuickWiki

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is a really handy add-on. The old way of looking stuff up was pretty easy, but this is way easier. Very useful for learning more words.

I would give it five stars if the pop-up window was movable. (I keep my task bar on the left side of the screen and the first bit of the quickwiki pop-up appears under it.) It would be nice if quickwiki was zoomable too.

But over all a very hand add-on.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.0). 

LastPass Password Manager

Lastpass is my favorite add-on, very essential to me Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I love Lastpass and pretty much regard it as totally essential to me.

It allows you to easily have different passwords for every website (so if one web site is broken into and your password discovered it is only that one website that is affected.)

It does an excellent job of generating and recalling passwords.

Some websites use Flashplayer pop-ups for password entry, and this does mean more manual steps in using Lastpass.

If you have more than one account on a website (for example, two hotmail accounts) be sure to edit and select "never autofill" for those accounts.

You'll want to get the latest version of Lastpass so you'll have support for the lastest version of Firefox, and unfortunately at the moment that means going to the lastpass.com website and downloading from there.

The 64-bit downloads include support for 32-bit web browsers.

LastPass Password Manager

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

For compatibility with the latest versions of Firefox you'll want the latest version of Lastpass.

To get the latest version of Lastpass, go to the Lastpass.com web site and click on "full list of downloads for your platform". (The 64-bit versions include the 32-bit versions.)

Enable Click to Play

Should become part of Firefox, it is needed that much Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works fine so far.

This is much needed and I think it should become an integral part of Firefox.

I have two suggestions.

1. An interface to list the trusted sites and allow individual removal.

2. I would like to be able to pick which plug-ins this applies to. I only want it to apply to insecure plug-ins, not all plug-ins.

And if it becomes an integral part of Firefox, then FF could turn it on when zero-day vulnerabilities are found. (Maybe ON, OFF, AUTO settings.)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.11). 

Switch plugins.click_to_play

Works but message could be more user friendly Rated 4 out of 5 stars

What doplugins.click_to_play =0 -> 1and plugins.click_to_play =1 -> 0mean?A more meaningful hover description, like "Click to play plug-ins ON" and "Click to play plugs-in OFF" would be useful.And then if they click the button to toggle the setting, pop up the new setting for 3 seconds.Otherwise, works fine.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5).
