My Reviews

Fire Drag

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Fails in many situations including major ones like Facebook and Twitter. Even here on it fails to operate correctly on some elements.

The other major issue it has is that it continues to operate inside textareas so that reordering text/links with the mouse results in a search/link opening. In the default situation it blocks the text from being moved as well so it's actually breaking the expected behaviour.

On the plus side it restored my tab opening preferences for the most part. The ordering of tabs is backwards though so if you drag multiple links the order is Last->First when intuitively it should be First->Last

Firefox Multi-Account Containers

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

A nice idea with potential but doesn't have the options needed to use it effectively

I have not found an intuitive way to
- Assign a non-group tab to a group
- Reassign tabs to a different group
- Have new tabs open to a particular group
- Control sort behaviour

If any of the above are even possible. It also fails to function with FireDrag so you're relegated to keyboard+mouse tab opening to maintain grouping. With some polish and further thought into how users will want to use this feature it will be a must have. Right now it's more annoying to use than useful.

Snap Links Plus

Was one of my favourite addons, now almost useless Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I've used this a lot over the years, I thought at one time that it should be added to the core build of Firefox. This latest version has completely destroyed what it was.

What's wrong in an overview:

- Completely removed the context menu on release so you can't decide what to do anymore or cancel an accidental selection/release
- All the options that came with the context menu are gone removing 99% of the functionality
- Unable to shape the box properly, one direction stays static and acts like a move function while the other resizes so you can never shrink a box

Badly done devs. Badly done. Now I have to figure out how to revert....

DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials

Disappointed Rated 2 out of 5 stars

1) It failed to do the one thing I needed it to do: change location bar search away from Google who is now abandoning "I'm feeling lucky" Edit: it appears there were some keys set that blocked this functionality. Upon defaulting them it allowed search to be performed via location bar, but it's just regular search which just duplicates what's already available via the search bar.
2) Links location bar and search bar settings so you can't have one without the other
3) Engages in anti-competitive behaviour by eliminating competition's ads - I'm sure Google is doing something inappropriate but this type of behaviour is inappropriate coming from a direct competitor. Leave the ad blocking to AdBlock Plus.
4) Had to uncheck almost all default settings. Though at least they were settings and not about:config keys I had to track down
5) The addon doesn't allow you to modify the URL params so & can't be cooked in by the user to do anything meaningful - you get default search and that's it.

YouTube Control Center

Fail Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Failed to disable annotations as claimed.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.4). 


Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Contrary to peoples protestations there is no spyware, adware, or any other questionable tracking going on. This developer has chosen to support its development by the use of advertising. In the current source code it creates an iframe on and for the purpose of serving ads. You can't serve ads without being able to track them otherwise no advertiser would pay you. Adblock Plus prevents the ads as well as other possible workarounds. The only scummy thing is failing to disclose the re-enabling of the marketing after 7 days. Personally, I just permanently disabled the advertising and it works great. 3 stars based on ad supported/disclosure failures and buggy image saving code.

Snap Links Plus

Highly Recommended Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Without a doubt one of my favourite addons. It has so many uses - I'd highly recommend it to everyone. That said it's not without its issues.

1) It frequently breaks when Firefox is updated. Some times the fix is as simple as re-installing the addon but sometimes a lengthy wait is required for compatibility to be restored.

2) Formatting of copied links is not fully customizable and "new line" option is not handled properly. Pasting the copied links into a rich text editor works as expected but not into a plain text editor like Notepad.

3) There's a bug in the counting feature where it sometimes reports the correct count +1. Unfortunately, there's no way to tell when this bug is going to crop up so the count can never be relied on for accuracy

4) There can be some interface lag, currently this can cause some issues when making scrolling selections where the box will restart/reposition itself rather than extend.

I'd also like to see it have a couple more features like:

1) Ability to copy selected text in tables. This would come in very handy for copying a row or column of data which Firefox handles rather poorly on its own.

2) Quick Drag features would be a natural addition to this addon

3) Ability to chose between copying the href info and copying the text in the A tags.

4) The ability to select a "modify area" from the context menu and then manipulate the borders of the selection.

All of this said, it's still among my top 5 favourite and most used addons

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This could be a great add-on with a few more features. Disabling the ability for select sites to not run JavaScript can be very useful, especially for web developers. Unfortunately, where a scalpel is wanted a kluge is all that's available with this add-on. If the ability to stop specific scripts, especially in-line ones, was added this would be top notch.

Element Hiding Helper for Adblock Plus

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great idea, except if you don't have the (ugly) AdBlock logo enabled you have no way of accessing the "Select element to hide"

This has since been fixed - there was a keyboard shortcut but it conflicted with others so never worked for me.

All Rogers Canada internet customers should add this to Firefox. +1 for taking over/adding functionality of defunct RedirectRemover addon.

Stop-or-Reload Button

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

And why isn't this default for FF? Great Job Caio!


Rated 4 out of 5 stars

As of FF3/ this also fails to block intellitxt style ads.


Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great extension.

I tried AdBlock Plus, and while it's good it doesn't make it easy to see what elements are blocked or have a nice list of elements so you can look for patterns to add new filters.

The one drawback of this extension as of is that when adding a new filter it is slow to apply. The window hangs while it processes the new filter. It used to be virtually instant.


Meh Rated 1 out of 5 stars

After installing and checking out the options this extension seems it's no more than a way to advertise non-Google services on every Google page. It's better suited to a Greasemonkey script.
