My Reviews

YouTube mp3

Simple, easy to use Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Add-on does what it says it would. I have no issues with quality so far but I am not that picky about that so I might not notice when it was not great quality. Unlike other add-ons I tried, this one truly was a no-restart add-on. Doing what it says when it says is a great thing.

Easiest YouTube Video Downloader

Great idea but.... Rated 3 out of 5 stars

not what expected based on the description. I like the idea and seeming ease of this add-on but am disappointed about the available choices of format to download as. The description states, "It simply adds a download button below the video player and dropdown options to download YouTube videos in FLV, 3GP, MP3, MP4, 720p, 1080p formats." but in the nearly 50 videos I've looked at, the only options I've been given were FLV and MP4, sometimes 720p, others 1080p and on a handful, the option for both 720p and 1080p. I've yet to see 3GP or MP3 as an option, and MP3 was the main reason I wanted this add-on. I know that I have a program already on my computer that I could convert them but if a description for an add-on states it will save in a specific format, then I expect to be able to save in that format and not need to convert it.

Further, this is labeled as a No Restart add-on but the button to download a video did NOT appear until after I restarted Firefox. It wasn't as if when I added this to my add-ons that I already had YouTube open and needed to refresh the page. I didn't even open YouTube until after I got this add-on. But there was no download button. But after I closed FF and restarted it, the download button was finally available. Another problem I have is that when I clicked on the "Support Site" link, it did me absolutely no good as it took me to a link for a registry cleaner. If I had wanted a reg cleaner, that's what I would have looked for. I wanted the support site for this add-on. If I click on a link that says it is a support page for a specific add-on, that is what I expect to open rather than something totally unrelated to this add-on. So in light of these issues, I highly doubt I will keep this add-on, unless I can get answers as to why this is happening...mainly the issue of not having all the options to save as the description states.

EPUBReader

Excellent browser based e-reader!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great extension! Quickly becoming one I make sure is on every computer I use FF on. I read quite a bit and having this makes reading books on line SO much easier. I made sure my Mom, and the other readers I know who use FF, also know about this extension. I made sure my son's laptop had this because he & I have a habit of reading the same books. He's as insatiable a reader as I was at his age, if not more so. This extension makes reading easier on all of us! It's sad when you tell your child you're going to take away TV privileges if his grades go down and he shrugs and says, "So what, I'll read." He knows we are unlikely to take reading away as most parents have to make their kids read. He even got in trouble in school for reading, the teacher hated to discourage it in fact but he was reading fun stuff and not listening in class.

My only suggestion or wish is small. On the ePub-Catalog page (about:epubcatalog) it displays a table with the headings of: Title, Author, & Added along with buttons for Info, Tag, Save & Delete. This is where my thought came up. It would be nice when a user has a lot of books in their catalog to be able to select more than one book to tag or delete at the same time. I run into this more with adding tags than when I delete books but it would still be nice. One other would be the ability to easily edit the book's info as many books do not have the correct info. I have a number of books that are missing the title and that the author shows either incorrectly or unknown. If I were able to edit the book's info, I could fix that problem. It's not always easy to find a book you're looking for when the information is missing. I end up using the time I could be reading while searching for a certain book. Although tagging books does certainly make it much less time consuming.

Show Password

Used to be VERY helpful Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This was a great add-on until the status bar disappeared in FF29. Now there is no option to put the icon elsewhere so in reality there is no point to this add-on. It's sad really as this was helpful in figuring out what had been typed in PW boxes. On a computer that you or only those you trust very much, it was great to have the passwords showing. Thankfully Saved Password Editor still works but it is only helpful for those passwords you have saved. If you've not saved it and have just registered for site and used a long, complicated password but cannot see it, you're out of luck. I will be looking for a replacement add-on I guess.

Multi Links

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I was having the same issue as travbailey prior to the update to FF29. Now this add on is pretty much useless. IDK if it is just a matter of the revision number, but I suspect it's a LOT more than that.

[quote]the developer's web site is down.
When I right click on a page to do spelling corrections for example, I can't continue to type without hitting escape. When I disable this add on, everything works fine.
I keep this add on disabled, and only turn it on when i really need it.[/quote]

Medical Spell Checker with OpenMedSpel

A Must Have Add-on! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Any time I install a fresh profile of FF (whether on a new device or because I've lost patience cleaning my profile up), I usually install OpenMedSpel. For some reason, last week when I got a new profile, I did not install it. I do a lot of posting on medical related sites, or of medical items and it's great having a spell checker/dictionary that actually recognizes words I type quite often. I am glad I finally realized my problem today and remedied it! Excellent add-on for anyone who uses a lot of med terms.

Ellens Purple 2

Love this theme! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I use it on my desktop and tablet. I almost wish I'd thought to use it as my Windows bkg as well. Purple is my favorite color so this is an option that is just the right purple without going overboard.I really like the color variation init as well.

Save to G. Drive

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

When looking at add-ons, if I read "Save online files directly to Google Drive" and there is nothing stated in the description that states that certain files, such as images, are excluded, I expect to be able to save files, including images, which the last I checked ARE FILES, to my GDrive. When I cannot, then I feel I have wasted my time on an add-on that was virtually useless to me. Had the description stated something about not being able to save images, then I would have passed over this add-on. I normally read the reviews, and had I done so, I would have not bothered with this add-on. But, because I was in a bit of a hurry, I skipped the reviews, much to my regret now. If there is a file type that is unable to be saved, then change the description to state that. I don't think I've ever left such a negative review, but quite honestly, this add-on does NOT do what it says it does. Don't waste your time on it if you want to save image files. If changes happen and an update is made so that images can be saved, then I'd certainly try this add-on again and give a different review if improvements are made. But please consider changing the description to add what cannot be saved.

After the Deadline - Spell and Grammar Checker

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I am unsure why people are saying this extension is not working as I'm having NO problems with it at all. I purposely left what I knew was a spelling error in this as I typed it. (GGGGRRRRR! It helps to pay attention to the results before hitting "Submit Review"!) AtD caught it. I've been pleased with AtD for awhile. It is one of the first extensions I install on a clean profile if I change profiles for any reason. I was even happy to see they have an extension for Open Office as well.

All-in-One Sidebar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

AIOS is one of the first add-ons I make sure I have on FF. Without it, a computer just doesn't feel right to me. The customization is excellent.

Amazon "Add to Wish List" Button

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I really like this add on. Being able to pick which of my wish lists is nice, as is choosing which item when there are multiple on a single page without having to open each item. Renaming the item is also nice. My only issue is after I added it to FF and restarted, there was no graphic on the button. There was a blank spot on my toolbar and if I hovered the tool tip told me what it was. I checked Customize Toolbar but there was no button in there for Amazon. But I restarted FF a second time and finally saw a graphic where the empty spot had been. Otherwise this is a great add on!

Springpad Extension

Great App Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I love being able to fairly quickly clip and organize things. But the ability to edit inside the extension w/o logging on to the webpage would be nice. As would being able to move the icon to a different position on my toolbar.

Unless I've missed it, I'd like to be able to add a note to a page I am clipping at the same time I am clipping it.

One other item that would be nice is more options for customizing notebooks themes. There are only a dozen choices right now. I'd like to be able to see a color picker or even be able to use a graphic in order to customize my notebooks.

Tab Utilities

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Love Tab Utilities! Please update for FF10.

Custom Buttons²

Awesome! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have been sadly remiss in reviewing CB2. I have used it for quite awhile now and LOVE it. I consider it to be one of my most important extensions. I have well over 100 buttons installed and I miss them all since switching to a browser that is not compatible with CB2. Thanks to CB2, I was able to remove quite a few extensions that did one thing and one thing only, which was provide a single button to do that one thing. I'd much rather have one extension do multiple things, rather than have 4 or 5 extensions doing 1 thing. CB2 greatly helped in treating my "extensionitis"!

Everyone at the CB2 forum is wonderfully helpful in making new buttons from scratch (something I've yet to try), editing existing buttons to suit the individual users needs and fixing any button issues there might be. Although I don't see that happening often at all.

Everyone has been so very patient and helpful when I've asked what I am sure are dumb questions. No one (other than myself) has hinted that the questions were dumb. And if someone has a doable request, they try to either direct the requester (is that even a word???) to the right place if the answer is already on the forums or they answer it, with none of this "RTFM noob" I've seen elsewhere.

I've asked for buttons and received them quickly. I've asked for help in editing buttons and got it fast. And have been told "you can do it" when I've expressed that someday I will attempt to make my own buttons.

All in all this is an excellent extension with wonderful support.

BlockNote

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I like BlockNote a lot. Any chance of getting it to work for Thunderbird as well?

Tokyo

Awesome! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I do not think this is TOO purple! I love it quite frankly and wish I could find a Vista theme like this. The purple alone was enough to sway me but then ya had to mention Lupus awareness. I don't have lupus, but have RA, frequently tested for lupus because I have a lot of the lupus symptoms though. Especially the butterfly rash. So, raising awareness of any rheumatic disease is awesome to me. I work with support groups and find that helps go a long way toward educating people that these are serious diseases.

But, the purple is too cool! I've been wanting purple buttons since switching to FF3 and now I have them! Thank you!

PermaTabs

Love it! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I so love this extension. Please update it for FF3.

United States English Spellchecker

Good job! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Wow now I can stop thinking I'm crazy! I didn't have this installed and the word "isn't" was flagged as misspelled. Well pretty much every contraction I typed was flagged unless I manually added them to the dictionary. So this is helpful. I just wish I could access one more of my old dictionaries as an extension needing an update to work with FF3. Then I'd be having less of a problem with medical words.

FavLoc

Thank you! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Until the last two days, I did not realize how much I rely on this extension! So thank you so much for doing the update.

Dog Ears

Love it! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I miss using Dog Ears since it is not compatible with FF3. Any chance of it being updated soon?
