My Reviews

Belgium eID

For those experiencing "ssl_error_handshake_failure_alert" error. Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I got this error each time I was installing a new driver for my card reader or a new version of eID-middleware. Note that it doesn't happen with Chrome or Internet Explorer.

To avoid this, just,very simply :

- uninstall Firefox add-on Belgium-eid
- restart Firefox
- reinstall Firefox add-on Belgium-eid
- restart Firefox

And it will work !

Download YouTube Videos as MP4

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Works now better than the very famous DownloadHelper, which can't even download 720p vids anymore from YouTube.

But, as DownloadHelper, and because of YouTube new restrictions, can't detect 1080p videos.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.7.18).

To akawaguc Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Thanks for your tip, but I quite don't understand what I have to do to restore the jump-to-word functionality in Firefox 25. Could you just explain it very simply ?

Thanks a lot !

Great extension anyway !

Video DownloadHelper

Great excepted 1080 Youtube limitation Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Wonderful add-on of course, but yes indeed, as previous reviewers said, downloading 1080p videos from YouTube is now impossible ...

Video DownloadHelper

Latest 4.9.21a1 version works good on Vevo ! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I was having problems with 4.9.17 version, YouTube Vevo videos giving the 0 byte file. So I've installed the latest 4.9.21a1 version you can find here :

Linkificator

Better and better Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I totally agree with what AlexOren said and don't really have much more to add : Linkificator is getting better and better ! And its developer is really cooperative and willing to help.

Ok the extension still slows down the opening of certain pages with very numerous links, but it's better than what it used to be.

And, for instance, it doesn't cause no freeze in Hotmail/Outlook.com, what Linkification used to do !

So let's stay in touch with this add-on !

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.3).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Toolbar Autohide

Perfect ! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I had been using the "Auto-Hide" extension for years now. But don't look for it, you won't find it cause it's never been on Mozilla official add-ons pages, and its developer has now totally given up and closed his website. But it was working perfectly, allowing full screen with ability to choose which toolbars you wanted to see or not in this mode, even Windows Taskbar. But today, with this brand new version 18 of Firefox, full-screen mode didn't show me no toolbars anymore at all ! What deception ! Then I started to look after another extension that could help me and I found this Fullscreen Toolbar Hover, which perfectly does the job ! But I'd better say : which is the perfect companion to this Auto-hide extension, because, this last one stills allows me to choose which toolbars I want to see in Full Screen, what would not be possible with Fullscreen Toolbar Hover only.

If anyone is interested, I've kept a copy of this "Auto-Hide" extension, and am OK to send it via private message.

So you saved my day, Sepandparhami !

Firefox 3 theme for Firefox 4+

Now really incompatible with Firefox 17 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

With Firefox 17, lauching add-on manager is now impossible, just as many entries of Help menu ... it smells the end for this add-on, damn ...

Linkificator

Has stopped working ! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Since yesterday, has totally stopped working !! I've tried reinstalling it, disabling my anti-virus and firewall, but nothing worked ! What happened ?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.1). 

Linkification

Great add-on, except this Hotmail freeze Rated 5 out of 5 stars

To beautifulmnd : no, unfortunately, adding hotmail.com,login.live.com,outlook.com to Linkification exceptions don't change a thing to this new Hotmail freeze. At least I can see that this freeze only occurs at Hotmail opening and don't last more than 2-3 minutes.
Which is far too much of course, but ok, non-permanent.

Tab Mix Plus

Excellent !! But just 1 bug ... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Terrific add-on, I'm naked when I browse without it !

But I just experienced 1 bug very recently, in version 0.4. It is very precisely this : when Single Window Mode enabled, try to set up Sync in Firefox tools menu, choose "I Have an Account", and click on link "Show me how", the page will load in a new window, not in a new tab in current window, but remain invisible. While it will appear if Single Window Mode is disabled. I'm On Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64 bits.

Thanks if you can help !

URL Tooltip

Very good but ... not fast enough ! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very useful, works very good, but is not as fast as this new floating toolbar, part of standard Firefox, that now displays links url's on page's bottom, even in full-screen. Which, I'm sorry, leads me to first have a look at that toolbar, instead of waiting for these URL tooltips to appear.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.1). 

SearchBox Companion

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Your link isn't working, Paul UKBrit, the file is no more available.

Intelligent Middle Clickums

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I've installed it, but it didn't work with any websites I've tried, so I've disabled it, waiting for a no more experimental add-on.
Sad, because Smart Middle Click used to work perfectly.

MileWideBack

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Somebody had just recently posted a review with a tip to make this extension FF 3.6 compatible : reinstalling FF 3.5.7 and then FF3.6. But this comment has been deleted. Sadly because it simply works !! Great, I can now go back surfing full screen very easily with MileWideBack ...

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.9). 

SearchBox Companion

Very nice, update it, please !! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very nice, very useful, better than ctrl + F and Google toolbar, please upgrade it !!! Si je m'y connaissais, je te la reprendrais moi, cette extension, mais hélas ... pas possible ;-)

MileWideBack

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This hotfix works on Vista, not on XP, I've experienced it.

MileWideBack

Great ! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very good extension, so useful when you browse full-screen ! Maybe, while on left side, the mouse pointer should be replaced by the hourglass while page is loading, to be sure it's really loading.

Thanks a lot for this very useful add-on.
