My Reviews

Tab Badge

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Please call _positionPinnedTabs() from #tabbrowser-tabs after every badge update. As is, pinned tab badges frequently overlap the adjacent tab.

Progre

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Stops working until browser is restarted after a customize (View > Toolbars > Customize) in Firefox 29. Fix that, and I'll gladly upgrade my rating to five stars!

Element Inspector

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great idea for an add-on, but in practice, it opens DOM Inspector half the time and the new Inspector panel the other half. DOM Inspector seems more likely to load after a fresh start of Firefox, while the Inspector panel seems more likely to load after a restart (via the "Restart now" link after an add-on update, a manual restart add-on like Restartless Restart, etc.). Until this issue is resolved, the usefulness of this add-on is limited.

Classic Style for Favicons

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Default favicon shouldn't be applied to separators in the bookmarks sidebar; otherwise, looks great!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.2). 

Element Hiding Helper for Adblock Plus

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Excellent, indispensable add-on, but the key mappings need to override any existing shortcut keys defined on a page. On Twitter, for example, pressing "N" to narrow selection instead opens the new tweet window.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.3). 

Add-on Update Checker

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm going to assume this is Stylish's fault, but userstyles will only update through the Add-ons Manager. Is there a workaround for this issue?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.3). 

User Style Manager

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

With the addition of the features listed above, this would be, unquestionably, the definitive userstyle add-on. Unfortunately, it appears development has ceased. Too bad.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0). 

FindBar Tweak

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Any chance we'll see regex search in a future release?

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

Smart Referer

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A minimalistic add-on that does what it says on the tin. Excellent. My only suggestion would be to include an auto-updating rulelist to auto-whitelist major websites that, inevitably, have resulted (and will continue to result) in negative reviews here on AMO. It's important to have a custom whitelist field for fringe cases, but end-users really shouldn't have to whitelist things like disqus.com and api.solvemedia.com on their own.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.0.10). 

Auto-Sort Bookmarks

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

With options to disable the auto-sorting of bookmarks bar subfolders and the bookmarks menu root (so I can manually sort my unfiled bookmarks by the order in which I plan to tackle them), this would be a five-star add-on. I look forward to upgrading my rating in the future!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.6). 

Image Zoom

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The showStatus option is a good start, but ideally, full compatibility with Status-4-Evar should be the goal. I'd like to be able to see what exactly Image Zoom has done with my images -- I just don't want to see it indefinitely until I restart Firefox.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.2).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Image Zoom

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Just swinging by to second circcc's review. Until this is resolved, I'll be disabling updates for Image Zoom and reverting to v0.4.6.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.2). 

Tab notifier

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent work, but one tiny nitpick: In English, the first letter of every word is typically capitalized in a title. Consider changing the name of your add-on from "Tab notifier" to "Tab Notifier". Beyond that, can we get Snarl/Growl for Windows support?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.11). 

QuietUrl

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

When this add-on activates a link, the link remains in the (Status-4-Evar) statusbar until Firefox is restarted. Fix that, and I'll gladly upgrade my rating to five stars!

Update Scanner

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I concur with Fred Flintstone's assessment of this add-on. I've been periodically checking this page for YEARS now, hoping to find an update containing the ability to specify a check region so I can finally ditch WebMon (an old, abandoned Windows app that does exactly what we need, but lacks HTTPS support), but no such luck as of yet. You've got a potential must-have add-on here, sneakypete -- how's about taking it to the next level for power users like Fred and I?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.1.12). 

Firefox 3 theme for Firefox 4+

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Style Editor is completely broken in Fx13. Fix that, and I'll gladly upgrade my rating to five stars!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.0). 

Thumbnail Zoom Plus

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A fantastic update to Thumbnail Zoom. Five minutes in, I already couldn't imagine going back. In the future, though, can we get more frequent updates? Not all of us like to run add-ons that haven't been approved by Mozilla, and this had to be one of the most extended minor version betas in the history of betas. When your add-on's platform has more frequent releases than your add-on itself, you know it's time to ease up a little on testing. ;)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.7.1).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Abduction! - Webpage Screenshots Screen Capture

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Looks good, but invoking Abduction from the File menu should default to "select all" mode. Fix that, and I'll gladly upgrade my rating to five stars!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0.14). 

Load Tabs Progressively

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Love it, but it doesn't work on tabs created from bookmarks, the address bar, the search bar, and external sources. Fix that, and I'll gladly upgrade my rating to five stars!

Rehost Image

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great concept, does what it says on the tin, author is responsive to end-user concerns. A+

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5.4).
