My Reviews

Brief

Great RSS feed reader Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm using Brief for years now and I can really recommend it.

Big thanks to the developer for migrating this to WebExtensions and FF57+ !

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.5.1). 

uMatrix

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great replacement for NoScript, thumbs up!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.4). 

uBlock Origin

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great replacement for AdBlockPlus, thumbs up!

TitleURL

Simple yet effective Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Simple yet effective, no bells, no whistles, just does what is says.

Cookie AutoDelete

Very good, replaces Self-Destructing Cookies Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Now as Self-Destructing Cookies is gone with FF57+, this is a valid replacement. Looking forward to local storage support with FF 58.

Just one thing I do not like: the json export/import format is too complicated, making it nearly impossible to manually craft lists (like I did for migrating from Self-Destructing Cookies).
Please consider switching back to the V1 format or something similar, then I'll give five stars ;-)

NoGlass

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Love it! Brings back usabiltiy to TB.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.10). 

Self-Destructing Cookies

Very good Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Best I've found so far for managing cookies AND localStorage objects (which are unfortunately ignored by FF's cookie management). Great tool for enhancing privacy!

Just one feature request: whitelisting on specific cookies would be nice (in case a whitelisted site is breaking bad ;-)).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.1.1-signed). 

BlockSite Plus

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Simply. works.
No bells and whistles, does what it says and does it well.

PwdHash

Simple & Great Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've been using it for years now and it still serves me well! Unobtrusive and simple: just prefix with @@ or F2 and your password will be a hashed one specific for this site.
No more worries when a site leaks all of the unsalted passwords.

Just two things on my wishlist:
1. adjustable salt/password length via options
2. highlight password form field, if PwdHash is active

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.7.1-signed).
