My Reviews

Adblock Plus

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I loved this extension as it made browsing so much easier and safer without all the pop-up ads.

Unfortunately, I have now moved from Firefox to Palemoon as it has an interface that is usable by me after the abortion that is Firefox Australis and Quantum. I have abandoned firefox for Palemoon which is Firefox without all the user interface rubbish that the Mozilla team introduced to make their browser look more like Chrome. It runs faster and is more stable too. I have my lovely interface back again too!

Thanks to the author of this extension, without it I would have abandoned Firefox a long time ago. It saved my browser's life more than once from malicious ads that injected code into the browser. Thankyou for that.

Now this extension does not work under quantum, the time has come to abandon Firefox for Palemoon. I am recommending the Palemoon browser to all who read these reviews, I am a long term Firefox user but now I am a dedicated Palemooner- I promise you, you won't look back.

Author, please use some of your skills to adapt this extension to PaleMoon. PM is actively supported and your extension was one of the most useful that is missing from PM's add-on compatible list. Palemoon is an actively supported browser that is being used by more and more users. It is not a legacy browser and your skills would be well-placed in adapting Adblock Plus to work on PaleMoon.

I am a dedicated Firefox user but I feel that I have been abandoned by Mozilla - not the other way round. PaleMoon for me IS Firefox.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0.1).

Secure Password Generator

Latest version ruined this add-on Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I have used this add on for a while and have always been impressed by its ease of use and functionality. The latest version has broken so I am only going to give it a 2 star rating rather than a 5 star which it used to deserve.

The context menu pop up does not work. I don't have one at all with the new version. The pop up has been moved to a menu bar and that is a retrograde step. I would not recommend this add-on until these poorly though-out changes are reversed.

It is also incompatible with multi process. All in all the add on is going in the wrong direction.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.6). 

Element Properties

fix for FF47 and above Rated 5 out of 5 stars

In addition to Zeusa's modification to the install.rdf you will also need to change to false xpinstall.signatures.required in about:config

Restore View Source for Firefox 6+

Thank goodness for this Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Drives me mad when the FF devs change the UI without giving us the option of putting a long-used option back again. The developer of this little add-on deserves a small medal - thanks to you and big blurp to the person who broke FF in the first place.

Menu Editor

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Can't be used with noscript as the key start sequence conflicts. Why can't you add a simple menu option to start menu editor? That would mean that we could run noscripts and the menu editor at the same time. Be aware that any menu changes that you make with menu editor are lost when you disable or remove the add-on.

Menu Editor

conflicts with noscript Rated 2 out of 5 stars

The menu changes don't stick unless this add-on is enabled and working. It also conflicts with the noscript add-on and so none of the menu changes take place. Needs some work to remove this conflict as noscript is a useful and widely-used add-on.

Saved Password Editor

invaluable Rated 5 out of 5 stars

An essential tool that allows Firefox to be a central repository for all your secure passwords. Could do with its own export function though, separate from any Firefox account migration tool.

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

StartupMaster

very nice, so far but... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very nice, so far but...please make a change so that it does its stuff when you switch from secure private browsing back to normal mode. Currently FF asks for the password as many times as it is is needed for the pages you have open, can result in multiple pop-ups of the security password dialog box, a right pain!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2).
