My Reviews

FireFTP

Support site? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Fantastic extension. Been using it for years with very little problems.

I do, however, have a support question. Your support site has lots of answers but I can't seem to find a place to ask a question. Is there perhaps a support forum for FireFTP that I don't know about?

**Edit: After a little research I found the support forum at https://github.com/mimecuvalo/fireftp/issues?state=open

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.18). 

FindBar Tweak

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very nice. I like to keep the findbar open across all tabs like Fx used to be. This extension make that possible again.

Places Maintenance

Good, but could use a couple of enhancements Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is a handy tool to have, but not having a button for it (the "Tools" menu would be a good place) makes it easy to forget it's installed. Having to execute the extension from the Tools > Add-ons page is cumbersome. Also the ability to re-size the options window would make it easier to read. I would have brought up these issues in your support forum, but you don't seem to have one (at least no link to one on this page).

FEBE Mod

Unauthorized version! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This is not an official release. It was posted on this site without my knowledge or consent. I have no idea why or what the purpose of the supposed modification is.

Official versions are available at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/febe/ or my FEBE homepage at http://softwarebychuck.com/febe/febe.html

Forecastbar Enhanced

Use Forecastfox Weather Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've used and loved this addon for years, but it never got updated beyond Fx 3.6. Now that I'm using Fx 7.x I found a virtually identical addon called Forecastfox Weather.

Console²

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Philip, would you please bump the maxVersion for this? I encourage all my extension users to install Console² when submitting support issues. Since many are now using Fx 5 and above, they are not able to install this very helpful addon.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

InspectThis

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Can this be extended to display XUL elements? Could be quite useful for extension developers.

Update Scanner

Nice addon but poor support Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I have used and recommended this addon for quite some time. But when I installed the Feedly addon, Update Scanner would crash Fx consistently. I reported this problem in his support forum (http://updatescanner.mozdev.org/drupal/forum/4) weeks ago but has yet to be even acknowledged. There are other older bug reports there that are also unacknowledged. A developer should really be more responsive to his user base.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.1.2). 

TV-FOX - Watch TV Online

Malicious software Rated 1 out of 5 stars

While trying to find out more about this extension, I went their homepage "http://toolbar.tv-fox.com/". My Kaspersky anti-virus immediately threw up an alarm warning "Attempt to download malicious software".

The AMO reviewers should really investigate add-ons like this before making them public.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5.0). 

Chrome List

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

A handy tool. It would be an invaluable tool it it had a search function.

Console²

Absolutley essential Rated 5 out of 5 stars

As an extension developer, I am constantly recommending that my users install this extension to help in the debugging process. It finds problems that the standard Fx error console does not.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.9.1).
