My Reviews

Nimbus Screen Capture - editable screenshots

Impressive Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Restartless installation, simple and flawless usage and convincing results. A really useful tool.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.3.1). 

ScrapBook X

Brilliant! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

While Scrapbook Plus makes some problems on several pages and lacks some features (like proper sorting the search results) all this works in ScrapBook X.

And there's no big deal to switch to ScrapBook X even with a lot of pages and Multiscrapbook enabled.
Thanks a lot!

Googlebar Lite

Gem Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I use this since ages. Very helpful for searching and highlighting.
Gets better with each update. Thanks for the classic maps option!

Autofill Forms

Gets worse with every update. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The previous version introduced a bug where a garbled main window renders the extension useless.
This 1.0.0.0 version has a "special gem": it seems not to be compatible with Windows 7 Aero and destroys this setting in Windows. Thanks for nothing. I'll stick with the modified version from camp-firefox.de

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.0.0).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

y-Translate

Unintrusive and powerful Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Just like a translation extension should be, thumbs up!
Morge alternative ways to invoke the translation would be good (like ctrl+alt+shift or a combination of key(s) and hover)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.9.4). 

Search as list

Indispensable Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is really awesome. Thanks for this extension, great job!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0). 

FoxReplace

Impressive Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Wow, I already had this installed to replace too long navigation elements on certain websites but I was never aware of it's ability to also change the html source.So this extension just became a reliable companion in my web development process along with Firebug, Fiddler and others especially when you have to deal with pages where you can't alter directly the source for testing purposes.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.15.0). 

YOURLS shortener

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The extension itself ist really great and worked like a charm.
Unfortunately the version 1.5 is broken and just gives me the error TypeError: gContextMenu is null in line 90. Back to 1.4 which still works.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5). 

Autofill Forms

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The "Minor fix to scrolling in preference windows" breaks the pref window completely. Went back to 0.9.8.4

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.9.0). 

Shipped and sold by Amazon

Very cool Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I would feel better if it was explained technically how this works but, hey, it works!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.7). 

Locationbar²

Seems to be dead Rated 3 out of 5 stars

While this used to be a great extension (and still is) some things (like the single-click-selects-all) don't work in current Firefox versions. The author doesn't respond to forum posts anymore so the extension seems to be abandoned. A pity.

Expression Search / GMailUI

Perfect! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Best addition ever. With Expression Search you can drop the buildt-in gloda and quickfilter because this add-on it combines both in one location. Additionally it extends the search features so you'll find exactly what you search.
No idea why this is also called GMailUI but whatever.
For those who also have to work with Outlook and miss the old Lookout Search: this is the similar approach on TB, only better.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.4). 

Redirector

Recommended Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works like a charm and is well documented. Nice and clean interface.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.8). 

Speed Dial

Great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Really a great add-on. Just when you think "now if the extension would also be able to..." you look in the settings and find it there.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.6.4). 

Smart Referer

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Perfect idea because it requires no settings and works out of the box.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.0.3.2). 

Mnenhy

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks for 0.8.5! Finally I can upgrade to TB 10. Good job!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.5). 

Qute 3++

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Perfect, thanks for your work

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5.5). 

No Message Pane Sort by Mouse

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is brilliant, especially the temporarily re-enabling by CTRL-click. Well done!

Text Link

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Perfect. Thanks!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.0.2011021601). 

YouTube to MP3

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I like how the buttons are embedded and this extension works as advertised. Simple and clean.
Unfortunately this extension conflicts with the Greasemonkey Userscript "YouTube Lights out" which does not work anymore after this extension is installed.
