In a little more detail...

I have always been fascinated with programming and have slowly been learning a few computer languages over the years. For the most part I just find things that I want done and I figure out how to do them. I have a few addons on here that I have been maintaining. I currently take care of my daughter as a single parent and struggle with a severe lack of money on a day to day basis. Every dollar I receive for the work that I have done and plan to do in the future is very greatly cherished.

Add-ons I've created

Menu Icons Plus

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The option to use existing theme icons is very awesome. Thank you for this great addon. I have not yet decided if I will make an icon set for this or not from the CrystalFox Qute theme. That single option removes most of the need for it. I may go ahead and make a proper importable icon set for it anyway some time for those who want it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4). 

CuteButtons - Crystal SVG

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I hope that this gets fixed, it looks very promising.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.0.8). 

Link Alert

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Honestly I liked the way the icons had been displayed before. The tooltips are not ideal. They stay on the screen if you have firefox in the background and they don't look as nice. I like the icons to be next the the cursor, it looks more professional.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9). 

Fasterfox

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Prefetching has been broken since 3.0 and nobody has of yet fixed the code that would allow it to work. I guess many web hosts may rejoice now. :P
I have uploaded a repaired version without Prefetching called Fasterfox Lite:

No one has fixed Enhanced prefetching in this addon so far. All anyone who say they have fixed this addon so far have done is edit the version info in the install.rdf file so that it would install in Firefox 3.5. They don't fix the prefetching or any of the other broken configurations, not to mention the possible variable conflicts that have not been resolved in this addon that I pointed out a very long time ago. In fact as it is Fasterfox Lite will do much more then those proclaimed fixed addons will. https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/9148

The prefetching in this addon does not work. I tested this addon to see how well the prefetching worked. I tested it using this web sight: http://www.angelfire.com/planet/nuclearflower/highres01_jpg.htm I did not see any prefetching of any of the images during my tests. I believe prefetching is broken in this addon, and other settings are also broken in this addon. I have uploaded a version with the settings fixed and the prefetching removed called Fasterfox Lite: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/9148

I hope this gets an update soon. If not, I may need to take look at the code and see if I can get it working.

This addon will not be compatible with the next version of Firefox. I am hoping that the current developer has plans on updating it. Also please add this sight as the home page in the install.rdf file like I did with it here as an example: http://myfreefilehosting.com/f/234bcf6c9a_0.1MB

I like this addon a lot when I need it.

Could you at least add this sight as the home page?

I edited the install.rdf file here as an example:
http://myfreefilehosting.com/f/234bcf6c9a_0.1MB

I also changed the max Firefox version as a suggestion.

So far this seams to be the best addon for my purposes. Thanks a lot.

Fasterfox

Try Fasterfox Lite. The "Lite" does not mean less performance, it is only a reference to the removal of the obtrusive prefetching ability.

"Thanks Spinball. You now ALMOST have it right.
I am having only one minor problem. The Page Load Timer in the Statusbar will not display the Load timer. It only shows "Fasterfox". Could you work on this please?"



To a previous poster: I think I have pretty much fixed most if not all of the bugs in Fasterfox Lite. The "lite" does not mean less performance, it is only a reference to the removal of the obtrusive prefetching ability.
