My Reviews

Print Edit

Paper-saving Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on not only adds functionality I find useful, it also replaces an add-on that I found essential until I found Print Edit. It allows me to have a Print Preview option in the icon's drop-down list and also in the right-click context menu. The additional editing ability is an awesome bonus. I love being able to save paper on documents that will be printed (by removing unnecessary ads and navigation sections), and even if the document won't be printed, if it's being saved for reference, it looks better without the extra stuff. The options available in the Edit toolbar seem to cover every possibility I'd need for editing.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (8.4.1-signed). 

Secure Login

Extremely useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have a 3rd-party app that has add-ons for Firefox and IE that saves passwords, and yet I still use Secure Login. On my desktop computer, it supplements my 3rd-party password add-on; on my laptop, it's my only password-related add-on. Since it integrates with Firefox's built-in password management, the passwords I use with Secure Login sync between my computers (and also to my phone). I store my passwords in Firefox because of the convenience of syncing; Secure Login makes me feel a lot safer about it, especially on my laptop and phone. This add-on is among the first ones I add to a new installation of Firefox.

Session Manager

Essential add-on for tab addicts Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is my most important extension when installing Firefox on a new computer. I am a tab addict and frequently have dozens of tabs open; Panorama lets me group them now, but it's even more important to be able to save them. Before I had Session Manager, I bookmarked the tabs I wanted to save; now I have hundreds of bookmarks that I don't recognize. Loading sessions makes it easier to see at a glance what I was saving the pages for, and if I need to weed out old pages, it's easier to do that too.

sidebar popup panel

Nice replacement for Sidebar Autohide Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I tried this out and liked it, but I found another called OmniSidebar that also replaced two other functions I needed, so I switched. But if all you need is for your sidebar to undock and/or autohide, this works nicely.

SaveLink

Good replacement for Create Shortcut Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I just upgraded to Firefox 5, and Create Shortcut hasn't been updated yet. Since it's not available thru Mozilla's Add-ons page, I looked around for something else and found this. I like that I can choose where to save the link.

I hadn't realized I could create shortcuts by dragging/dropping, but that doesn't do me a lot of good anyway because my window is always maximized, so there's nowhere to drag to. I could restore the window to normal size, but more than half the time, the window has sized itself to my display anyway, so I'd have to then resize it to see the desktop. This saves me the trouble.

TabCounter

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love this add-on! I have tried the similar Tab Counter 1.8.8 by Morac, and both do basic tab counting, but TabCounter 1.0.3 shows total tabs of all windows, and I find that a quick way to tell that I have more than one window open (since I keep Firefox maximized).

I would like to see an option for Firefox 4 to put the tab count in the toolbar (or anywhere other than the status bar) so that I don't need to keep the new add-ons bar open; that's an area where I like Morac's Tab Counter 1.8.8 better.

Xrl.In Tiny Links

Simple and works Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I found this while looking for a substitute for the TinyURL button that hasn't been updated for Firefox 3 yet. Like the other reviewer said (there was only one when I wrote this), I like the placement of the button; it's small and out of the way, but still in a good location for its purpose. The only thing "wrong" with this extension is that the URL-shortening service isn't TinyURL (but I'll get used to that, I suspect they're all mostly alike).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2).
