My Reviews

Saved Password Editor

doesn't work where i need it to Rated 2 out of 5 stars

in each case i tested, it doesn't work - it seems that if FF doesn't prompt to remember passwords, then this extension can't fill them in either, even after entering the credentials manually (the auto-guess from the current page fails to find the input fields, even though they are easily found in the page source)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.7.3.1-signed). 

RememberPass

OBSOLETE - no longer needed as of FF v30 Rated 2 out of 5 stars

i believe this add-on is obsolete as of FF v30, or thereabouts

according to a bug report i saw, Mozilla dropped support for handling the "autocomplete" attribute

to verify this, go to the add-on authors test page and see if FF asks to remember passwords without this add-on installed - i am asked to remember the login credentials in all 4 instances in my case

there are, however, other ways a website can cause the FF remember password dialog from being displayed and i am seeing these more and more - in these cases, again, this add-on will not work

Copy Link Name

DO NOT INSTALL - contains wips.com SPYWARE Rated 1 out of 5 stars

mozilla should not allow extensions like this

users do not want not be tracked

please click the "Report Abuse" link and complain to mozilla - if this garbage does not violate their policies, THEN THOSE POLICIES NEED TO BE CHANGED! tell them how you feel!

look at their support email addres: support@ppclick.com - ppclick = pay per click

BetterStop

doesn't stop loading of PDF files when they are viewed in FF Rated 4 out of 5 stars

just noticed this since pdf preview became active in a newer version of FF - you cannot stop it from loading

NewsFox

broken in ff 32.0.2/3 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

NewsFox is not listed as an option when clicking the feed icon to add a new feed

Conform SearchBox(with automatic learning)

BROKEN/UNMAINTAINED Rated 1 out of 5 stars

it would be nice to have ONE working extension that provides this functionality, but they all appear to be broken

in this case, changes made when editing the regExp for a domain are not saved

also the search terms are modified when opening the next page of the results on google

other minor issues as well

SearchWP

could be better Rated 4 out of 5 stars

could add highlighting to the scroll bar as other extensions do

more importantly, word button are forgotten after browser restart - you have to click in the search bar, then click outside of it to re-buttonize the words

EDIT: thanks to the dev for his reply ;)

Web Search Pro

doesn't allow to edit search URL parameters Rated 2 out of 5 stars

doesn't allow to edit search URL parameters - for an extension this comprehensive, this is suprising

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

Organize Search Engines

broken Rated 2 out of 5 stars

this extension seems to be broken and unmaintained for some time (last updated in 2011)

sometimes search engine properties get reset and changes are not always saved

This user has other reviews of this add-on.

Menu Wizard

OUTSTANDING Rated 5 out of 5 stars

excellent extension!
so far i have not noticed any conflicts with other extensions - much appreciated, especially since similar add-ons are all either broken/unmaintained or limited in features

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.12.1-signed). 

Bookmarks menu

very nice! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

works well, simple
i might suggest adding a separator under the recent/most visited folders

i would also like to see someone do this using the new start panel since v29 - would be nice to add bookmarks (bookmark toolbar items at least) to the start panel instead of having another toolbar button

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.91.1-signed). 

Scroll Up Folder

and just when i thought my life was over... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

FINALLY found a suitable replacement for the smart text/smart location extension that actually works (i think i've tried them all), and works well, and doesn't break other extensions!

this is the ONLY extension that, like smart location, handles url parameters and sub-domains properly (unlike All About Location Bar and others), allowing you to go from "domain.com/dir/?=parm" to "domain.com/dir" and "sub.domain.com" to "domain.com"

and you don't have to click buttons to do it, like Uppity, Navigate Up, Dir Up, etc..

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.2.8.1-signed). 

Bookmarks UI

needs work Rated 2 out of 5 stars

it doesn't display some icons, such as for FireFTP, cPanel, NewsFox, etc - i don;t know how it displays icons, but it is obviously different than native FF

would be nice to set a background color

it should auto-set the height and columns (based on position after drag/drop)

support more than just bookmark toolbar menu items

drag and drop results in opening a bookmark and simply doesn't work well because the ext insists on keeping the number of items each column even

Personal Menu (Personal Firefox Button)

losing its appeal Rated 3 out of 5 stars

since ff v29, it is apparently no longer possible to display bookmarks (such as bookmark toolbar items) in the menu, thus you cannot achieve the results as pictured in the description.

it would be great if the ability to add bookmarks to the menu was added, though this has been mentioned in the support forum

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.2.0.1-signed).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

S3.Google Translator

very nice add-on, just needs a little polish Rated 4 out of 5 stars

i like the way it works for the most part - in-line translation is working well so far

would be better if, when the translate window is open (when selected text is translated), any text highlighted would automatically be translated

FYI, when plugin.state.flash is set to 1 (always ask), it seems to break this ext. (win 7 ff 28)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.01.1-signed). 

Personal Menu (Personal Firefox Button)

bookmark toolbar items Rated 3 out of 5 stars

as per the developer comments in the forum...
"Bookmarks toolbar items is not supported in FX 29+."

it would be nice if they were, or another method of adding bookmark icons to the menu were implemented - this is one of my most used features of the menu

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.2.0.1-signed).

Locationbar³

works ok, but doesn't handle domains properly Rated 4 out of 5 stars

you can't click to remove a sub-domain, so you can't go from "sub.domain.com/dir/file" to "domain.com"

smart location was the best, but it's no longer maintained

All About Location Bar

Needs a little bit of work Rated 3 out of 5 stars

i like the add-on, but the truncate and go logic applies to domains as well as the rest of the url - this makes it impossible to go from sub.domain.com to domain.com, because everything after sub. is removed
