Image Picker

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It seems that the DPI properties, for both horz & vert, were incorrect - i.e. either intentionally or by accident, the DPI was wrong. Although the images displayed "properly" on the webpage, i.e. in proportion, they were "squished" on download. A program like photoshop easily corrects the DPI and the squished images can be "un-squished". Still not sure why imagepicker can't do more of a wysiwyg pull, i.e. they look fine on the page, capture them as they look - but apparently it relies upon the encoded properties of the actual online file rather than grabbing the pixels from the webpage. Either way, it doesn't seem to be the fault of ImagePicker.

Original review:
Nice idea, but... images are saved "squashed". Don't see a way to "correct" this. All images saved, despite being shown in full size on web-page, were saved with vertical dimension approximately 1/5 the correct dimension - i.e. "squashed" vertically.

Textarea Cache

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very useful addon that makes research or just quick "grabs" of page content beyond-easy!

One thing I might suggest - an option to disable the pop-up menu that appears every time a selection is copied to the cache/clipboard. The pop-up stays visible for a second or two and during that time the mouse-pointer is somewhat disabled, and the portion of the page beneath the drop-down(popup) menu is blocked from view. Just saying that it can be a long couple seconds sometimes, when one is working, etc.. waiting for the menu to disappear. Thoughts? Still an excellent plugin for certain.

MinimizeToTray revived

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I looked around but could not find any contact mechanism (and I don't criticize that - I know that questions can quickly overwhelm one's incoming mail and become unmanageable). I'm a big fan of Nils' and think his work is some of the most useful and productivity-enhancing of any add-on developer. BTW - folks that find this useful, or perhaps "DownThemAll" - one of the coolest add-ons EVER - really _should_ show appreciation with a contribution/donation. DTA is perhaps the most killer add-on ever, imho. That said -
I wanted to alert Nils that the homepage for this add-on (https://tn123.org/mintrayr/) shows version 1.0 as current, and that's the latest available there. Since the homepage is linked to from the add-on's "more info" at the browser, it probably should have the current version. I can imagine that maintaining an extra page (home) for each add-on is a pain, and wonder if these at addons.mozilla.org should just serve that purpose. I imagine there's valid arguments against that though. Anyway - thought it was worth mentioning, and again - could not locate a contact link, or a comment-link on the homepage itself. Nils, I'm a fan - not intending to hand you more work ;-)

Print Edit

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Print Edit is absolutely BRILLIANT! .. and it keeps getting better with each rev.

Anyone who is doing research on the web - and wanting to create nicely formatted and printable (or simply readable) documents, whether as .pdf or directly printed, from any website content - is going to LOVE Print Edit.

The documentation is quite thorough, and the program/plug-in is largely self-documenting anyway; you see the results of your edits/changes/adjustments onscreen, in preview mode.

Print Edit is a GODSend. The support is amazing - for Firefox a compatible version is usually immediately available when any FF revisions are released. I would definitely PAY for this - and whatever I can spare for a donation does not compensate for the value that I receive from this first-rate plugin. I am a software dev of significant experience btw - these folks are the real-deal.

Downloads Window

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm a developer of some experience, but never worked on FF (or any browser, ftm). I was surprised that someone removed the download window/history functionality (leaving the widgets.. to just show.. nothing). It's something that I personally used regularly, especially watching queued downloads, simultaneous, or whatever.. to just remove it without a word.. something that was working fine, at least for my usage - pretty amateurish. THIS add-on is very useful, and we're in your debt.

I have ONE QUESTION: The old one could be opened and closed on demand - in addition to opening when a download was initiated. I find no way to open this one on demand (and the old controls don't seem to be tied to it in any way, from what I see - still an empty window). IF THERE IS A WAY - to open it - to view one's download history for example, would appreciate if someone would mention that. Apologies for using the review to ask that question - not certain of the proper forum, and time unfortunately is very limited. Cheers, and THANKS AGAIN - for a FIVE-STAR add-on to offset a Dev's mistakes.

Zotero may be an "Add-On", but it seems like a redefinition of the word. "A full-featured application with tight-integration with your browser" is how I'd describe it. Very easy to use. You're up an running in moments, with mouse-over help (tool-tips), easy access to documentation if you need it; store gathered material/data locally (on your computer) and options to store on zotero's servers and "sync" so you can use any computer (laptop, office, etc..) AND collaborate/share with others .. add RTF, PDF, Word processor integration and a lot more. It's way more than any plugin I've seen or used. Hands down BEST "add-on", and a rival for any standalone app.

Read Later Fast

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

A great add-on until Diigo basically abandoned it without any word. They are like a huge SPAMMER when it comes to pushing their other products.. diigothis that and the other. Gone Corporate and abandoned the best add-on. Bummer.

After a couple of weeks, I have to say that NoSquint definitely ROCKS! Customizable PER-PAGE (via exceptions if you want), not only _separate_ zoom settings for text-only OR text-and-image (again by page or globally as well), AND ability to override any site's background/foreground colors (those annoying hard-to-read color combinations are a thing of the past). This is easily in the top 2 or 3, if not the BEST, add-on I've found. KUDOS TO A KILLER DEVELOPER FOR CREATING NO-SQUINT! Awesome!

Amazon "Add to Wish List" Button

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

UPDATED Review: Simply had to add the button manually. Installing and enabling the add-on did not result in the button being placed anywhere. Perhaps due to another add-on or something. Anyway - I decided I may as well see if the button was properly added to the "View->Customize Toolbar" menu items list. It was, and I simply dragged it on to a toolbar. Tested it a bit - it's not quite perfect at this point, but the particulars belong in the appropriate forum and/or bugzilla. Main thing is, basically - it works, and it's pretty cool.

When adding an item from a non-Amazon website, it provides a "verify this action" dialog, rather than just shoving something in to the wishlist - a good validation feature and design. In this dialog, it shows the item name and price (thumbnail if avail, and L/R <- -> buttons to choose other thumbs/images from the page, if available, to associate with the new wishlist item), with an "Add to Wishlist" button next to it, so you can verify the action, update the description or name, and pick the thumbnail you want to show up in your wishlist. At the same time (prior to raising the verify dialog box), it checks Amazon's catalog for the same item(s), and if found, it shows Amazon's price (if available anyway) and a _second_ "Add to Wish List" button next to IT - providing the choice of adding Amazon's or the original vendor's item (link) to add to your wish list. In fact, it looks like you could choose to add item listings; in-effect deferring the buying choice to later, for yourself or perhaps friends/loved-ones, if you're sharing the wishlist with them).

Cool stuff - and it seems that the "also-offered-at-Amazon" look-up/query has an "HA" kind of connection/priority - there was scarcely any delay before I got the "This item is also offered by Amazon.. " notification. Impressive IMFAO. If you get this "we sell this too" message, you can open another tab or whatever (the dialog is, appropriately, not modal - nice), browse the item to verify it's the same, the price, etc.., and then return to the dialog and proceed to add one (or both, i think) to your wishlist. It did make a mistake on a "matching item", but it conveniently provides one other button (again, only if found at Amazon) for you to indicate, if you want to, that this was NOT a reasonable matching item (pretty cool). At first I thought the other vendor had a substantially better price, then realized that the Amazon price was for a bundle/package of TWO of the items. So, technically it was not really a match, in terms of a single purchase to add to your list/cart, and I flagged it as such.
(not quite apples/oranges, more like apple/apples, alol). Nuff said.

Anyway - this is pretty slick. I have a real love/hate with Amazon in general, and it's hard to reason the ambivalence and stay objective (Amazon rocks - but it's arguably bad for the U.S. economy; e.g. I loved visiting Borders). Anyway, enough diatribe. Lastly - I don't always drink beer, but when I do, I prefer to drink single-malt scotch.

A cool add-on.

Original review was focused on the lack of the button showing up on the display. Deleted .. deprecated, whatever...
