My Reviews

Google Shortcuts - All Google Services at a glance

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Yes, I second that - would love to have G+ added

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.6.1-signed.1-signed). 

Facebook Translate

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you SO much to Firefox, Google Translate and Alphawolf. I live in Prague and have joined lots of local fb groups but can't always manage to translate comments, especially not in slang! Also I love the way this integrates with fb. Superb job.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.3). 

Foxdie

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

The latest couple of versions of Foxdie have not allowed manual override of font sizes. To change font you have to change the system font size settings. But I don't want to do that - I only want the different font sizes in the browser. let's hope this functionality returns.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.6.4).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Long overdue Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Long overdue thanks for this amazingly intuitive and well-thought-out addon. I am working in Prague translating French texts and need a ton of accents, so this has been a lifeline. I also really enjoy using the dropdown menu - unusual for a tool to be so aesthetically appealing. I only wish that something as practical existed within MS Office. Is there, I wonder, any chance of a standalone programme tha could somehow be used inconjunction with non-cloud based word processors?

Multajn dankojn,

Alex

Foxdie

Exquisite torture Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Funny how addicted one becomes to new themes/skins/personas. Anyhow, like many other Foxdie fans, I suspect, I downloaded FF3.6 assuming that Foxdie would work and am now in the uncomfortable position of weighing up whether to junk all my settings (yes, I know there's a way to save them all) and revert to FF3.5.7 just so that I can have Foxdie back, or to wait for the Foxdie update. Ho-hum. The agony.

ACE CuteBird (Graphite)

Thunderbird 3 version? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Doesn't seem to work with Thunderbird 3

The Browser Highlighter

Unacceptable Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I am going to be writing to skype about this in the morning. That I have absolutely no need for this add-on is not the point; rather, it is a matter of principle. No company, small or large, should treat its customers in this way. There is such a thing as courtesy.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.14907). 

Yoono: Twitter Facebook LinkedIn YouTube

Not working; incorrect information Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I have a massive problem with Yoono 6.2.1 sidebar and integration with Firefox 3.5.5. Nothing is connecting. This has been going on for some time. I have posted a review to the official Softonic website but not yet received any reply. Interstingly, the desktop version works fine. The second related issue is that the Editorial review in the main website by John Rigall quite clearly says "Your Yahoo Mail and Gmail accounts can also be added, so you can stay constantly up to date with your email too." I do not believe that this is true. Can anyone please enlighten me and/or offer any advice for the connection problem? Sorry to sound so negative, bu these are the facts.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.2.1). 

AniWeather

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent. Thank you very much. Is it possible to move the display in any bar completely to the right hand side (i.e. right-justified)?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6.15). 

AnyColor

Excellent with one flaw Rated 4 out of 5 stars

There doesn't appear to be a way of reporting problems through the link, so I'm going to mention it here - sorry. Generally this is an excellent add-on to Firefox, but on my Vaio VGNB1XP (Intel 82852/82855 Graphics controller) it makes Firefox wobble when the screen is resized or when there is another window open. Thought you might like to know :)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.0). 

Blue Ice

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Agreed - it's been too long.

Blue Ice Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This theme is so good it should be adopted as the standard. I persuade all my colleagues to use it, and they all agree that it is much more than just a skin; it has transformed their browsing experience.

One oddity about the present version (2.1) is that when you pull down some menus they are a lighter shade of grey; also the progress bar in both incarnations (barber's pole, or glass) is not as effective as a Safari-style gradual tinting of the address bar (see Fission add-on).

But overall this is one of the best downloads available. Well done, and good luck with the implementation for FF3
