My Reviews

Facebook Search

Google Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Just a wrapper / proxy for Google. Use startpage dot com instead.

Enhanced Facebook

Google Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This is just a google search with "host:facebook.com" using Google's Custom Search Engine interface.

Tab Mix Plus

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very nice but causes some browser slowdown. Then again, I'm not using multiprocess yet, so once that becomes viable (more add-ons support it), the issue may fix itself.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.0.0). 

Add to Feedly Plus

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great

Dorando keyconfig

Very good Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Would be better if the window was resizeable. Reply: Tried that, didn't work. I assume there's some conflict with another add-on I'm using, but pretty weird. Other add-ons have resizeable settings windows. Anyway thanks for your work!

Privacy Settings

Good stuff Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Descriptions are missing for a few settings, and for most of the advanced settings. Would also be good if you could restore your custom settings after pressing one of the bottom five buttons. Otherwise excellent. Mozilla needs to care more about privacy or the Brave browser will gradually take their users.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.3). 

Textarea Cache

Works again :) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Simple. Never lose what you're writing.

Tab Groups

Impressive Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very well done, a big improvement on the original built-in feature.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.1). 

Suspend Tab

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works with Tree Style Tab better than UnloadTab but you can't see which tabs are unloaded! I expect Piro The Amazing will fix that soon though :)

Add-on Compatibility Reporter

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Adds the text "Not compatible/Compatible with multiprocess" to every add-on in the manager, which is pretty ugly. Just the icon would be much better.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2.1). 

RefControl

Needs update Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Doesn't change useragent in Firefox 48.0

RequestPolicy

Good but uBlock is better Rated 4 out of 5 stars

uBlock replaces Adblock Plus and has an advanced mode that's essentially a better interface for RequestPolicy.

Vertical Tabs

Doesn't work for me Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Only shows my 3 pinned tabs, at full title-long width instead of minimized.

Tree Style Tab

Excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works great but causes a bit of slowdown. It would be nice if you could put toolbar buttons on the same row as pinned tabs.

Bugs:
If you disable the Windows titlebar, this add-on will make it show up again. You have to remove it via Customize every time you run Firefox.
If you remove the "List all tabs" button from the tab bar, the tab bar stops being displayed (wherever you've put it) you have to disable the add-on in order to put the button back and then re-enable it.
A few minor conflicts with other add-ons:
Double Click Add New Tab adds a tab at the very end of the tab bar instead of next to the current tab like it does without this add-on.
UnloadTab fails to show unloaded tabs as greyed out sometimes, so use SuspendTab instead.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.17.2016031101).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

HTTPS Everywhere

Takes up space Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Excellent for Firefox, but not for Android: It puts an icon in the address bar that can't be hidden. Screen space is precious on mobile!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.1.4). 

Restart

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is nice except the icon looks very much like an Options button.

Advanced Locationbar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works great.

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

Toolbar Position Changer

Conflicts with Tree Style Tab Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Stops the addon Tree Style Tab from working.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.1). 

It's All Text!

Inconsistent Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Great when it works, but it doesn't work at all on the sites I most want it, like Facebook and Wikipedia. Also would be nice if there were an option for a context menu item.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.9.2). 

Tree Style Tab

Great Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works well apart from one thing: if you remove the "List all tabs" button from the tab bar, the tab bar stops being displayed (wherever you've put it) you have to disable the addon in order to put the button back and then re-enable it. I also wish you could put toolbar buttons on the same row as pinned tabs.
