Smart location (smart text)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great replacement for Locationbar2 with additional features. "Kill the subdomain" action is a nice touch.
Keep it up!

Auto Dial

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It's definitely useful as one step up from the Places' "most visited pages" folder, but in its current state, the add-on is not something I'm going to use daily.

Visually, I'm turned off by oversized pixelized favicons. Despite one of the reviews below, which advises to "do an interpolation", I think that would actually be even worse than scaling each pixel 2 or 3 times in every dimension without interpolation. Don't scale favicons at all, please.

I'm also missing the ability to remove unwanted pages from the auto dial page, the feature present in Places. Not every page I frequently visited in the past is going to be of much use to me in the future.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4). 

Brief

Nice, but has problems Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Bad support for OPML files generated by other applications (FeedDemon, RSSOwl, Thunderbird) is bad. Or, rather, non-existant, since I had to correct the file with sed (Thunderbird's one, it was the closest).

No additional support for authenticated feeds, except for what live bookmarks provide. That is, the only option to store login and password is within the URL, and they behave badly with Livejournal secure feeds, again and again asking for credentials. But - lo and behold - you click on such feed, choose "Reload", and it loads all right. Sometimes not on the first try, though.

The interface is good, though, and I'd really like to be able to use it.

Support on the forums is slow...
