Add-ons I've created

NoRedirect

NoRedirect lets the user take control of HTTP redirects. It can be used to interdict an ISP's DNS search redirection hijacks, preview/screen "shortened" URLs (e.g., TinyURL), stop the annoying redirection of "smart" error pages, etc.

InlineDisposition No Restart

InlineDisposition changes the disposition of Content-Disposition response headers from attachment to inline; this prevents servers from forcing the browser to save a file and allows that file to be viewed in the browser, if the browser supports it.

My Reviews

Smart Bookmarks Bar

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

There is a better version at https://addons.mozilla.org/addon/smartest-bookmarks-bar/ ... Roomy BB is just a tweaked version of Smart BB, and it uses the same inefficient and fragile userChrome hacking. Smartest BB looks like it's a total rewrite; the code is not nearly as hackish and you don't have to restart your browser just to change a setting!

Smartest Bookmarks Bar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is far better than the Smart/Roomy Bookmarks Bar because it doesn't rely on (fragile) userChrome.css hacking to work. It's less buggy, more reliable, and you don't need to restart your browser to change a setting!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.1.3). 

SubmitToTab

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

There is a re-write of SubmitToTab, with improved reliability and restartless support: https://addons.mozilla.org/addon/tabsubmit/ -or- http://code.kliu.org/misc/tabsubmit/

Fasterfox

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

**DO NOT** use this addon! See https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=429161 for the reasons why.

Super DragAndGo

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

@Watchmanz: Super DragAndGo hasn't been updated since before Fx2 (it's not even fully compatible with that; drag-to-search doesn't work with Fx2), so it is highly unlikely that it will be updated for Fx3

For Fx3, you can try QuickDrag:
