My Reviews

TrayHotKey

Great addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Much needed extention.

A weird thing though, after installing some faulty persona, when this addon was enabled my firefox turned black upon start. But it was the persona to blame nonetheless.

This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Session Manager

No auto-restoring of last session Rated 3 out of 5 stars

A great addon, but why isn't there any option for automatically restoring the last session after a crash? Instead have to wait for Firefox to load and then click on the session you want to restore, which is very inconvenient, it wasn't so in previous versions, but the developer changed it for some reason.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.0.8). 

Color Transform

Very useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great add-on considering most sites are blindingly white, just what i was looking for and does what it promises!

But how come you can't place its toolbar button in the middle of a toolbar? it goes back to the right side after restart.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.2). 

Context Search X

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Good add-on, but when the engines are outside the menu they won't show icons. Which then makes this add-on no different than the other similar add-ons. Would be great if it showed the icons outside of menu.

Element Hiding Helper for Adblock Plus

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Stopped working on google just a couple of days ago.

Other than that, truly great addon, please fix.

Menu Editor

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Shows transparent box in ff20. Outdated sadly.

AutoCopy

Great, but... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I don't know what happened but in the latest version it only copies as plain text when copying scripts from autohotkey.com.

AutoPager

Edit Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Edit: I did once i think, didn't get any response. It's just that when i first installed it a year ago, i disabled its toolbar icon and then all my spaces in the navigation toolbar disappeared after a restart. So i installed autopager lite instead which didn't produce the same problem. But now it's gone, and with the latest autopager release this problem came back. After two restarts all my spaces disappeared, then i had to go through all the recent updates to see what extension was causing this, after several hours i found out it was autopager. After a couple of restarts it will remove all spaces in the navigation bar.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.0.7). 

AutoPager Lite

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Doesn't work in FF17. Specially in google, it just shows the loading bar, but never loads anything.

NewScrollbars (aka NoiaScrollbars)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Edit: Thanks, yea that's what i meant. Looks great.

Old review:
It's pretty good, but since pretty much nothing in Firefox is "rounded", having the scrollbar button rounded doesn't fit at all.

Would be a 5 star if it had the option to make the button square, as the original, with no rounded edges.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.7). 

FoxAmp

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Looked great and simple at first, but after troubleshooting my FF i found out this is causing a cpu spike every 5 seconds. Why? cause in its options it's set to upgrade track name every 5 seconds. Setting this to a higher number just means much less track name change but still will cpu spike at those intervals.

Edit, reply to the developer:
the CPU spikes come from svchost and they make the mouse cursor show the busy cursor every 5 seconds, which is very annoying.

TrayHotKey

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Much much better than any other minimize to tray extension that ever existed. Simply great.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.5.2). 

TubeStop

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Shows a white screen on top of video when pausing, and it prevents buffer.

The greasemonkey userscript called youtube autopauser does the job of pausing plus it buffers the video in pause mode and there is no white screen on the video.

Also, it doesn't work on youtube channel pages, neither does the greasemonkey script.

LastPass Password Manager

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

ThrillZ don't lie please.

Lastpass has no option whatsoever to store your passwords on your own computer instead of their servers. Saying they are encrypted doesn't change anything, more so because lastpass is not open source, and no one has any reason to trust them, just because they say so. And even if it was true, storing passwords online is the worst thing you can do to your passwords. Why? because lastpass admitted that they have gotten hacked very recently.

Don't listen to these individuals obviously working for lastpass, store your passwords in your own computers or write them down, safest place they can be. NEVER EVER give your credit card info or important passwords to any online password manager. That is just plain suicide.

LastPass Password Manager

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

1. Forcing users to store the passwords on their server.
2. Keeps trying to delete Passwords stored in Firefox, saying they are insecure.

Those mentioned above are two main very ridiculous things about this extension.
Passwords, much less credit card information are not secure in an online server, in somebody else's hands. Anyone over 10 could see that.

What if they decide to close their servers down, all passwords gone. What if they aren't already selling the info of their users to 3rd parties. Why would anyone trust them, just cause they say the passwords are encrypted and not in their hands. If thats the case then they could very simply give an option to users to save passwords in their own computers instead of some remote server somewhere.

As someone else here mentioned, this is putting all eggs in 1 basket, more than that its giving your basket to someone who claims he knows whats best for you by saying: "i'll keep your eggs in my home instead, its more secure than your own home".

FoxClocks

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

After FF4 this add-on causes problem in some sites, example IMDB. If you click a link in those sites you gotta hit the back button twice to go back. Took me 2 hours to find out which extension is causing this, turns out it was this.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.7.82). 

Flashblock

Rated 5 out of 5 stars
