My Reviews

Locationbar²

Essential addon, but doesn't separate at # characters Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This extension separates a URL into its components (separated by /), and allows you to quickly jump up a level just by clicking. If it also separated at the # character (or provide an option to set custom break points), it would be perfect.

JSView

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great extension, but not compatible with Firefox 3.6. The author's domain name has expired, so I suspect this project has been abandoned. Anyone care to take it over and update it?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.5). 

Tab Killer

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great add-on, but the latest version isn't here for some reason. A Firefox 3.6-ready version is here:

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.2009110201). 

HistoryBlock

What once was great is now broken Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The latest update broken HistoryBlock! It worked perfectly before 1.3.4.3, but now sites that should be blocked show up in my history as though the extension isn't even installed. Please fix!!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.4.3). 

Open Long Url

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great addon - please update for FF 3.5!

Mass Password Reset

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent - just what I needed! Works like a charm (although a little on the slow side).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.03). 

FFClickOnce

Terrible idea Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This nonsense is why I dropped IE; why would I want to enable drive-by installations on Firefox?

Grab and Drag

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Truly excellent; just what Firefox needs. Feels a bit like Safari on the iPhone (except without all the crashing!).

Note to pen users: for me, the extension felt really squirrely at first, but then I turned off the flicks feature, and now it's smooth and predictable. Terrific!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.7.4). 

UrlbarExt

Clever idea, works well Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Options box is cluttered and confusing - needs some cleanup, spell-checking, etc. But the extension is great.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5.5). 

Tab Killer

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great - a much needed hack for those of us who need the freedom and flexibility that multiple-window browsing offers. (Such as viewing pages side-by-side, flipping between many windows with Alt-Tab, etc.) Tab Killer is the only game in town, for what should have been a simple checkbox in Firefox (like it is in IE7).

Only problem - when closing a Firefox window (3.05), the tab bar on all other open Firefox windows flashes momentarily. Perhaps a fix is due?

Otherwise, Tab Killer is a terrific and essential extension!

Private Browsing

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This extension is a bit clumsy - I'd rather enable/disable private browsing without the pop-up browser windows the warning message. (Yes, I checked the "Don't prompt..." option, but it apparently was ignored.)

How about just a simple on/off button and nothing else?

Also, it would be helpful to have the history kept current while private browsing is in effect, having it cleared only when the private browsing session ends.

Nice idea, but it needs work.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.7). 

Stealther

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Doesn't work at all. I activated Stealther, visited a few sites, then deactivated it, and those sites remained in the history.

Also, the statusbar icon disappears when Stealther is inactive; I'd rather the icon were there permanently, allowing me to turn it on or off with a single click. Of course, this matter is moot since the extension doesn't actually work.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.6). 

Open IT Online

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Just try installing this extension, and then restart Firefox with more than one browser window open. If you do, you'll get a separate "Open IT" configuration window for each browser window! What's worse is that you have to complete each one separately; cancel the configurator, and it uninstalls the extension! (Who's awful idea was that?)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5). 

Find Toolbar Tweaks

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works great on FF 3.0.5. I just wish there were a way to undock the Find toolbar so it weren't imprisoned on the bottom of the browser window! Any chance you'd add this to the next version?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.0). 

Find Toolbar Tweaks

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This add-on is missing one huge tweak: the ability to move the find toolbar! Why keep it stuck at the bottom of the window? How about an option to move it to the top, or have it floating?

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