My Reviews

Context Search RG

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Wow, my new favorite context search! Nicely replaces the old long-time standard "Context Search 0.4.6" with a more modern menu with a built-in default (that old extension always required my to re-enable the 'extensions.contextsearch.hideStandardContextItem' parameter so I could have quicker access to the default).

Only problem I ran into was I had to restart Firefox to get it to install, I kept getting a "could not update a necessary file" or similar until I did. But then it did install without restarting again.

YesScript

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Pretty mean rating 1 star because it doesn't remove your blocks on uninstall! So just install it again and do so, and uninstall again. heh

Still the best least-intrusive total script blocker using Firefox's own built-in way of blocking script on a site. Great for disabling script where you want for sites you visit often (take, e.g., ImageBam pages, to stop auto shrinking of images).

Flashblock

Nice Rated 5 out of 5 stars

FF13, seems whitelist is broken. Hope this is fixed soon, since this extension version is 1 year old next month. :o 5 stars when fixed!

Update: Appears to be working again thanks to FF 13.0.1.

ImageTweak: zoom/rotate images and videos!

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The new "Image Zoom" for sure! I find Image Tweak to be really a lot more convenient than said other extension (that has some memory leak and appears to be abandoned as well). While it takes just a little getting used to, it is simply great at what it does.

InstantFox Quick Search

Awesome! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Really good search enhancer. Would like to be able to order the search engine list in the context menu the way I prefer. It's still a good replacement for "Context Search" extension, but that follows the order of the engines set by the user.

Download Statusbar

Yes, disturbing Rated 1 out of 5 stars

So, this extension was updated a few days ago, adding a "enable sponsorship" setting (which was at least stated in the update notes after it updated). It did default to on, but I did not see what it actually did (if anything). Naturally, I quickly turned off the setting and didn't worry about it. So now it updates again, with that sponsorship setting gone, and NO notes about any changes. Not really cool. I once uninstalled this addon years ago when it kept begging for donations in the addons window itself. lol Well, it's high time to have nothing to do with this extension forever. ("Download Manager Tweak" is a good alternative.)

SearchWP

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This addon is great, will be quite useful until the search box eventually gets ditched like the other browsers.

FoxLocation

Sounds interesting, but... Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This new alternative to WorldIP and flagfox sounds interesting, but needs more info in its description here. What does the flag's tooltip look like? Does it keep a locally updated database for lookups, or does it constantly contact your server for the info (which could be a major drag)? Thanks.

Quick Translator

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Seems to work well so far. It just needs the option to display the popup near the selected text, or even at the top-center of the page, instead of the lower-right corner.

Nice, can finally stop the randomized-on-every-load pic thumb sites. ;)

RSS Icon In Awesombar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you for restoring some sanity for FF 4. The minds at mozilla make no sense sometimes. LOL

Also thanks for using the proper icon, it's better than the one "RSS Icon 1.0.6" uses. :)

Download Statusbar

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Used to like this until there was a periodic (often) nag for donations in the addons list.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.7.2.1-signed.1-signed). 

Download Manager Tweak

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Download Manager Tweak is great! And instead of Download Statusbar, because that periodically begs for donations in the addons list!! lol

Awesome enhancement/replacement for greasemonkey. Thanks for making a toolbar button possible! As for better performance than gm, well I hope that's true.....

WorldIP - Geo Add-on with Security Features

Nice Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I've been using FlagFox forever, but the author is now a jerk about being able to set the position of the flag. lol So I came back to WorldIP, having tried it before. It is a nice alternative, I just recommend making the tooltip info customizable like the statusbar info is (especially since there is no "statusbar" anymore in FF 4). For example, I would like the city in the tooltip too, and not the AS and less-useful info. Also, in the tooltip, it would be cool to show the flag and country big next to the WorldIP icon (or instead of that).

I seem to have an issue with WorldIP sometimes showing localhost (and no flag) for many sites, such as for dslreports.com. (If it matters, I do not use any proxy and do not have that special dns lookup setting enabled.) Also, clicking the flag does nothing, and right-clicking the flag does not display a menu (but I do hear my menu event sound occur).

Greasemonkey

Nice Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Been reluctant to try GM since forever. Finally got it on FF4, it's very cool with what you can do with it. I got it for GoogleReader to replace Better GReader that's not updated anymore (other than very belated version bumping), and now I am able to tweak the scripts I want easily. Plus found other cool ones too (like for Win Live mail and Youtube). Awesome addon!

Suggestion: Please add a toolbar button now that the status bar is the useless add-on bar and will remain hidden for most (and I don't want that Status-4-Evar or whatever it's called, because it is better with the extra window space now).
