My Reviews

Classicish Add-on Manager

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

valid points made by iBreniaR. i disagree with the developer as well, removing buttons because you think its too busy? isnt that the whole point in having an addon manager but then here you are removing buttons. instead, how about an option instead of forcing these changes on by default. that said, i still like it this extension a lot. i hope it stay around for a long time.

Form History Control

not that versatile Rated 3 out of 5 stars

ok, but i really dont get why its limited to only begin saving until atleast 10 characters are typed. this limitation greatly impacts usability. i still prefer lazarus over form history, because lazarus more often than not saves that crucial bit of info that makes it indispensable.would be better if it had more aggressive saving functionality.

Yet Another Remove It Permanently

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Still no Palemoon support? mozilla continues to make bad UI decisions with every new version, Palemoon is pretty buch Firefox but with a carefully selected feature set for a better user experience. Please Kim, its been long time coming, add support so we can enjoy your work in the more user conscious and friendly Palemoon browser.

Old Add Bookmark Behavior

Bookmark this tab? Rated 2 out of 5 stars

dont have "Bookmark This Tab" ...seriously, where do you get that.

Scrollbar Anywhere

mixed results, poor right click handling Rated 3 out of 5 stars

it feels kinda slow to me. also, doesn't handle Right mouse button smartly like it once used to. ScrollbarAnywhere worked best in Firefox 1 and 2, (yes, thats how long i've been using it) then firefox updated beyond compatibility and i switched to Gesture addon that had similar functionality integrated. then finally switched to Grab and Drag. i modded Grab and Drag to have crazy amount of acceleration and as a result is snappy like the way scrollbaranywhere used to be. while G&D's handling of right clicks isn't perfect, its still better than what we have here. the problem is Scrollbar Anywhere should extent timeout of the context menu the moment you begin scrolling until after the right button is released to avoid accidental context menu trigger or something like that. Scrollbars wants to do both when i let go of the right button. i only want to see the context menu when i right click, not when i right click and scroll. i don't want to see the context menu pop up after every dam time i scroll the page, Scollbars addon never used to do that back in the day. Will keep it as is, but hoping the creator can figure out a clever way to address the right click context menu.

CookieKeeper

not finished Rated 3 out of 5 stars

i hope the develper isnt finished with this addon because here is a solid foundation for what could be an amazing cookie addon. one glaring oversight is when selecting to Show cookies, it would make sense if the cookiekeeper window show cookies for the current site, instead of having to first manually copy the domain and paste it into the filter box. Aside from that, and few other bugs, i like the feature set. with some work this is one addon that could standout from the rest.

BookmarkThisTab

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

agreed this needs to work on unfocused tabs otherwise it is pointless. initially thought it worked but then on closer inspection i see the name field is populated with the tab that is in focus, so Bookmarking unfocused tab from context menu is not working with this addon. someone needs to step up and finish this but even after all these years and still no fix.

Menu Icons Plus

performance = low Rated 3 out of 5 stars

adds a nice set of icons but at a high performance cost. firefox consumes more cpu and bigger memory footprint and working set with the addon installed and enabled. too bad

about:addons Button

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

pointless and poorly made, you can already do this without the addon by adding a bookmark about:addons to bookmarks toolbar. Perhaps the author should take a look at this https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/add-ons-toolbar-button/
and create an updated version based off the better code

Smart location (smart text)

confusing Rated 2 out of 5 stars

i cannot for the life of me figure out what to call the 3 ... dots near the bookmark star nor what its function serves beyond adding clutter and distaste. its shown in the 2nd picture with the caption at the bottom "bubble, arrow and invisible alligator" well? which is it. is it a bubble, an arrow or invisible alligator i cannot tell. like others, i find the options have no effect and whenever i re-open the options they are back to default no matter what i set them too. can you provide a way to remove the ... in options or at least describe what file to edit in the xpi to make this disappear while retaining core funtionality of the addon? thanks.

Location Bar Enhancer

poor execution Rated 2 out of 5 stars

i have to agree with some of the other reviews that give Location Bar Enhancer a low score, i like the idea and was thrilled initially when i installed it but then i soon realized when you have long address with many subdomains or levels how bad this extension is, taking up the entire locationbar and especially troublesome when you have other location bar addons like a few of the many whois type flag addons installed where there was a messy overlapping of information. had to uninstall it,

Whois & Flags Firefox & Websites Popularity Rating

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

the popularity icon is really ugly and pointless and takes up valuable space, when you can just give the same mouse over hover functionality to the flag icon itself. No options whatsoever leaving a lot to be desired.

Show My Password

issues with some sites Rated 4 out of 5 stars

this addon has never given me trouble till just now, registering on a forum and the password field would not show what i had typed in. long time user but had to uninstall.

Status-4-Evar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

one issue on firefox 31 which is what the latest Tor browser is built on, there is no entry under the Tools menu, its missing. Other than that it is working perfectly.

i will never understand why the mozilla team continues to make idiotic choices and cripple the UI by removing needed features like the statusbar. i am sure you know what i mean, thank you for this.

Downloads Window

thank you Rated 4 out of 5 stars

hmmm, the first time i installed it there was no "Options" visible, therefore i did not see a way to set any preferences. installed a second time did the trick, thank you for the reply i would have given up on this had you not responded.

Cleanest Addon Manager

not fully working Rated 3 out of 5 stars

does not matter what setting i choose i cannot get small categories like shown in the picture. new firefox, new profile. so i would have to say no this doesnt do exactly like it says but close to it.

Kill Button

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

i would imagine this could be a good addon but the button is not showing up with the latest palemoon browser, too bad.

Menu Editor

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

thank you for your comment LL25255252

you saved me a lot of headache dealing with the once great and now frustrating add-on that is menu editor.

installed menu wizard instead and i could not be happier

X-notifier lite (for Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo)

what does it do? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4).
