QuickDrag

a millimeter from perfect! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love this addon! This concept of a quick mouse click gesture to save time and steps is almost perfect and I thank you for it! Some fellow Firefox users love the way it is now and others would like further option. Is it possible upon further development that you can make it work for both by allowing the user to choose one of 3 new image options placed in the options menu of the extension
as follows:

1.) - DEFAULT SETTING -
which opts for the current image save settings to be exactly like the current version of Quickdrag

or

2.) - NEW DEFAULT FOLDER... (with browse button to select) -
which allows user to choose an optional default folder for images to be saved to automatically
when the user quickdrags an image.

or

3.) - SAVE IMAGE AS... -
which opens the "save image as..." window when user quickdrags an image allowing user to
select different optional folders to save images to when categorically saving images. This
option skips additional steps of having to locate the default folder images are saved in to move them
to a preferred folder after quickdrag-ing

- and of course last but not least make it compatible with all versions of Firefox 3 & up?

P.U.K a rude PopUp/Under Killer(prev: killjasmin)

Fantastic Addon with ability to be a top Firefox extension Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This add-on has proven to be very effective against 95% of the annoying livejasmin pop-under windows I have come across. And I appreciate that very very much and thank you for this. But I do not understand how to effectively add more sites to it. Is the ' l ' character (typed between sites added to be filtered) an Upper Case i, or Lower Case L, or number 1, or something else? Does it have spaces between it and the filtered sites or is it typed all together? I see no clear example or explanation of how to add sites to be filtered to this extension. It would be nice to see such an example or instruction on the killjasmin addon page or on a new tab opened after it is installed and / or updated giving instruction as many other addons do.

This add-on has the potential of becoming wildly popular and highly touted as THE POP UNDER KILLER!!! - immediately a 5 star extension worthy of being added permanently to Firefox or just outright paying for! That is IF it were more polished and user friendly, with improvements similar to if not exactly like the following:

1. When going to options to add a site to kill, it would be much more user friendly if there was a blank ADD FILTER BAR to type in or paste to it with an add button at the end of it. When you click on that add button, it asks for the filter name of the string you just added or pasted: For example type 'livejasmin' and press enter. It then adds the name of the new filter alphabetically to a list of other filters within a scrolling box placed under the "ADD FILTER BAR". And of course built in ability to highlight any of those filters and easily remove selected one(s) for whatever reason. Another sweet option would be the ability of right clicking (when not disabled by the site) on an offending pop under and choosing in the context menu to: ADD SITE TO KILLJASMIN. in which it automatically adds that pop-under URL to a filter in the background and then asks for a filter name in a pop-up box with a blank space in which I type it in press enter and the pop-up box disappears while it adds the new filter to the list and then kills the pop-under..

2. The 30 characters to check a windows URL has been effective, but what happens when livejasmin and other site pop-under creators learn of this and add 31 or more characters to render this extension useless (is that the reason that it works 95% of the time and not 100% for me now?) What about adding the option of adding * wildcards (asterisks before and after site name in URL ( for example: http://*livejasmin* or just *livejasmin* is typed into the blank ADD FILTER BAR) meaning anything in a url (doesn't matter if its 30 characters or 1000 characters) that contains what is typed between those asterisks will result in a pop-under with that string of characters being killed. therefore closing the 31 or more character or other loopholes that sites could use to bypass this extension in its current build.

With these type of user friendly improvements to this much needed extension added, this pop-under killer would be 5 star worthy and worth paying for to have! And of course a huge recommendation of having it altered to do all types of pop-ups and pop-unders added to firefox's automated popup defense it currently runs making it a delight to browse again.

Bookmarks Scrollbar

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

buggy does not work if session manager is installed and unfortunately does not offer option to disable scrollbar on the bookmarks toolbar. Only want it on the bookmarks menu bot ob the toolbar where the scrollbar does not work well and covers names of the bookmarks there. Fix these and its an easy 5 star app

Enhanced History Manager

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This addon is 99.5% perfect! I hope that like the addon password exporter that future versions of Enhanced History Manager will include the ease of importing and exporting History so as to move it easily from one firefox profile to another or to be able to move the exported file from one pc to anohher so it can be on a completely different Firefox running enhanced history manager. The ability to do that would get my 5 star approval and it would be the perfect cant do without addon!
