My Reviews

Snap Links Plus

needs updating Rated 2 out of 5 stars

while some of its functions work well, this ext. has a number of unpatched bugs dating back to 2013 (look at the gitub repo), leading me to believe it is largely abandoned

This user has a previous review of this add-on.

µBlock

not as good as the one from the original uBlock dev Rated 3 out of 5 stars

while the UI is slightly more polished in some areas, i prefer uBlock Origin

This user has a previous review of this add-on.

uMatrix

double plus good Rated 4 out of 5 stars

same review as i gave for uBlock...

great extension - 4-stars because i wish uBlock and uMatrix were one - i know the dev had a reason for splitting them, but i really don't see where uMatrix is any more difficult to use than uBlock when the latter is in advanced mode

so the result of running both is some redundant functionality that is, IMHO, unnecessary

all-in-all, still a much easier and more efficient solution than Adblock + NoScript

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.1.2). 

uBlock Origin

double plus good Rated 4 out of 5 stars

not sure what happened between the uBlock devs, but Raymonds' version wins out in my book

4-stars because i wish uBlock and uMatrix were one - i know the dev had a reason for splitting them, but i really don't see where uMatrix is any more difficult to use than uBlock when the latter is in advanced mode

NewsFox

good reader, but it needs some work Rated 4 out of 5 stars

from YouTube:
"To get an RSS feed of a single channel’s uploads, paste the channel URL into your RSS reader."
this does not work in NewsFox, however the browser does not always discover the feed either so this may not be a NF issue

as others have requested, a search function is needed - the "keyword" option is very limited and not a suitable alternative

as other have noticed, only one change at a time can be made to some of the options (noticed when setting sort options), after which you have to re-open the options UI to make another change - setting more than one change results in all but the first one (or last, i forget) being lost

the context menu option to hide the feed toolbar is not remembered across sessions - also seems reasonable to combine the feed and main toolbars perhaps to save space???

if you delete a feed from a folder other than the default 'feed' folder, the feed may not be deleted from the global feeds, even if it is not used in any other folder/category - since there is an option to set the cats/folders that a feed appears in, as well as a delete prompt, it should be deleted globally when deleting it ... after all, "delete" means "delete", not remove from the selected cat/folder

FireFTP

not working well in FF 37 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

this extension has some serious problems with FF 37 - many file icons don't show until they are moused over - CPU is pegged when scrolling through directories with lots of files - interface (and FF) becomes non-responsive when scrolling through directories with lots of files

tested with a clean profile
FFTP 2.0.23
FF 37 - all
Win 7

Statutory

works fine, needs a little TLC :) Rated 4 out of 5 stars

the option "stop all notifications" is misleading - this is understood to mean that the blocked notices are disabled when this option is selected, which is the opposite of what it actually does - better to re-label as "Show notifications for blocked sites" with default of checked

since there are not many sites using WebRTC at this point, i'm not sure about the toast prompts - i think it would be better to show a more standard yellow warning bar at the top of the page like other notifications - also, if you miss the toast, you have to reload the page which is maybe not so ideal

also it needs to expose the whitelist - i can't find where it stores this

Web of Trust, WOT: Website Reputation Ratings

SPYWARE - DO NOT INSTALL BEFORE READING THEIR "PRIVACY" POLICY Rated 1 out of 5 stars

this extension tracks your web usage

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (20131118.1-signed).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

WebFilter Pro - The web content filtering addon!

DO NOT INSTALL BEFORE READING THE "PRIVACY" POLICY Rated 1 out of 5 stars

this add-on collects certain data from its users

if you want a really content blocker, search for uBlock

Menu Editor II

THIS EXTENSION IS OBSOLETE Rated 1 out of 5 stars

hard to believe it is being listed on the "up and coming" list

search for "menu wizard" instead

µBlock

the best content blocker for Firefox, bar none Rated 5 out of 5 stars

i really like this extension - uBlock is much more powerful and efficient than Adblock Plus/Edge/etc.

@MooTaters - you need to read the wiki to learn how to use uB - you'll find the link on the About tab of the config UI

CS Lite Mod

false sense of privacy preservation Rated 2 out of 5 stars

don't mean to pick on this developer in particular, but cookies are only a part -- a small part -- of overall privacy protection

any extension that deals with cookies should also handle local and session storage and probably LSOs as well

Disable clipboard manipulations

needs a white-list Rated 3 out of 5 stars

even though this functionality is built-in, i would like to set it to false globally, then allow on a per-domain basis - need a white-list to do this though

FireFTP

file-type icons not displaying Rated 4 out of 5 stars

since approx. the time i updated to ff 36, the file type icons are not displayed in either the local or remote view until the files in the lists are moused-over
win 7
ff 36.0.1
fftp 2.0.22

Shim Storage

in regard to last comment... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

if the ext. relies on dom.storage.enabled being set to false, then it should probably set this upon install and re-check at every start-up

also, if it breaks Extension Defender, i would wonder if it would break other chrome addresses?

Shim Storage

breaks Extension Defender Rated 4 out of 5 stars

no support site and no support email? hmmm...

setting dom.storage.enabled = false breaks the Extension Defender add-on

Preferences Monitor

not happy about bundled 3rd party ext. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

eCleaner should not be included by default - at the very least it should be an optional install

luckily it looks like a benign extension, otherwise i'd really be po'd :)

liking PM though - good work
