My Reviews

Print Edit

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on brings a little bit of sanity to printing web pages, not something I have to do often thankfully, but I can't believe how badly browsers do it by default.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (12.1). 

CookiesOK

Good idea Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I give three stars for effort, I was praying for someone to come up with a solution to these ridiculous cookie pop-ups. However the current version doesn't seem to work on any of the first few sites I tested it on, and is much less effective than the other well known solution.

Download Status Bar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

An almost essential add-on for me, so it's great to have a working version for Firefox 26. Works great so far.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.1). 

Redirector

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This does what it says on the tin, and while it may not be for everybody, for those who do need it, it's very useful indeed. Saved me from trying to write a greasemonkey script to do the same job!

Speed Dial [FVD] - New Tab Page, Sync...

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Easily the best add-on of its type. Lots of powerful features, but they don't get in the way of the main functionality.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.0.3). 

Switch to Tab no more

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

"Switch to tab" is one of those things that is clearly useful to some people, and clearly a pain in the ass to others. That's precisely the kind of feature that you give an accessible preference setting to. But some Mozilla devs seem to have gone to the Microsoft "we like this feature so we're going to ram it right down your throat" school (much as I love Firefox), so it's a good thing someone stepped up and wrote this add-on.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1). 

Disable Automatic Offline Management

Essential Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I didn't know about the hidden preference in ff 3.6, but either way I'm so glad to have a way to turn off this silly feature. On several of my machines, when resuming from sleep mode, ff goes offline before the wifi link is reestablished, and it's seriously irritating to have to go to the menu to put it back online again, especially on my tablet. What is "offline mode" for anyway?

Speed Dial

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I was looking for a Firefox equivalent to josorek's Speed Dial for Chrome. While I give props to the author of this ff add-on for making a very powerful and customizable tool, I have to say it's overcomplicated and not very pretty. Despite lots of playing around with thumbnail resolutions and options, they still look ugly. I urge the author to stop developing features and start working on aesthetics.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.5.6). 

autoHideStatusbar

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is one of my essential add-ons on my netbook, it does what it says on the tin, and helps keep a few more of the measly 1024x600 pixels productive without having to completely turn off the status bar.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.6). 

R-kiosk

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Does what it says on the tin, perfect for my application.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.1).
