My Reviews

infoRSS

it DOES work with newer Firefox (31) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I held off any updates of Firefox for a long time after reading the comments and not getting it to work with FF29.
InfoRSS is THE crucial addon for me and I wouldn't want to use Firefox without it. Tons of options, highly customizable with filters, you name it inforss has it. Although that comes at the price of intuitive usage it's definitely the best RSS/Atom reader for firefox.

However after today's upgrade to FF31 I managed to get it to work after a lot of trial&error. The key thing is that you have to right-click a toolbar, select customize, and then drag that blue globe icon with a dot to a toolbar. It has no text associated so you can only identify it by the icon. Once dragged it will do nothing. You have to make sure that the infoRSS option "Display->Position" is not set to Statusbar but top or bottom. Then restart Firefox and the infoRSS-bar should be visible and the blue globe icon gone.

After that I disabled the toolbar again to which I added that icon, but that's optional.

All the errors about podcast location and what not are also gone after that restart.

I'm using it with the Add-on "Classic Theme Restorer" in case that it matters. Now the only thing that's a bit of annoying is the transparent or dark background of the infoRSS bar on Windows7. Only the background of new entries can be set to a custom color.

My Keyboard Navigator

Usefully but lacking some features and options Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is a great addon if you don't want to switch between mouse and keyboard all the time while browsing. However it takes a while to get used to it and it's not very intuitive.

My suggestions:
* Make the commands configurable, e.g. press-press => open in new foreground tab, etc.
* Make the delays configurable. For my personal taste the hold delay is too long while the delay before the last key is cleared is too short.
* When you show the blue "My Keyboard Navigator" box on the left bottom of the window you could use it to show the available shortcuts and the configurations for the combinations of hold and press to make it more intuitive.
* I also second the other suggestions to react on keydown instead of keyup for the shortcuts (not shift). This could speed up navigating a lot.

After all thank you very much for this addon. It is very usefull.

--edit: For some reasons it wouldn't work in pages using frames, like phpmyadmin, awstats, etc.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.9). 

Automatic Dictionary

Nice Idea, never worked Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Although the idea is great for everyone who has to write in different languages regularly, I've never got this addon to work. When using this with the addon dictionary switcher or simply selecting a different language via options->spell check->select language, it would always tell me that the language has not been saved.

--edit: works now. thanks for the explanation and addon.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.0.1).
