My Reviews

X-notifier (for Gmail,Hotmail,Yahoo,AOL ...)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.9.7). 

GBookmarks (Google Bookmarks for Firefox)

Great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks, it works.

Distill Web Monitor (formerly AlertBox)

Excellent! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This plugin is great. I'm using XPath queries to monitor changes in page sections on the many sites that do not support RSS.

The developer is very helpful and responsive on the plugin's forum.

Thanks Ajit!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.6.20111013). 

FoxyProxy Standard

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Beware of a bug in 2.15 !

Cycling through proxies is broken in 2.15.

Until 2.15, cycling through proxies in status bar worked like a charm. Re-applying the settings, restarting the browser didn't help. Thankfully, reverting to 2.14 fixed it for me.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.15). 

Highlights

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I needed just one thing from this add-on: load some text from disk and highlight it once I change a page. This simply fails for me on Vista with UAC enabled.

At first, I couldn't save Preferences at all unless I figured to specify the highlights directory. It was blank.

But then again, it can't save highlights and consequently, doesn't highlight anything on page reload. Here's a relevant fragment from the error.log:

saveHighlite: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE) [nsILocalFile.create]" nsresult: "0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE)" location: "JS frame :: chrome://highlights/content/serialize.js :: anonymous :: line 142" data: no]

As I understand, this snippet is what causes it to fail:

file.create(file.NORMAL_FILE_TYPE, 0666);

Author, do you mean that I need to start Firefox with admin privileges on Vista?

SkipScreen -- download helper, now for sale...

Save SkipScreen Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Undo Closed Tabs Button

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great, convenient time saver! 5 stars.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0.3). 

Tabs Open Relative

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've been a long-time Maxthon user, so Firefox was not comfortable for me unless I found this addon.

It's a pity that the Firefox developers won't understand such a basic usability principle.

Thankfully, this great addon makes me happy.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.3). 

Tabs Menu

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This one is a must have for me because I was a Maxthon convert.

NoScript Security Suite

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Must have! Without it and AdblockPlus, my browsing would be very uncomfortable and completely unsafe.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.9.0.8). 

FoxyProxy Standard

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I would give it 6 stars, but only 5 are allowed. Can't imagine working without it in my setup.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.8.12). 

Flashblock

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works as advertised, the price can't be beat.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5.8). 

Adblock Plus

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Essential.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.1). 

Webmail Ad Blocker

Five stars Rated 5 out of 5 stars

With this addon I reclaimed Gmail as I wanted it to be. Updated instantly. Thanks and keep up the good work.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.2).
