QuickJava

Great Add-On Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is one of my essential Add-Ons. I love being able to disable javascript and flash globally without having to dig through menus. It's absolutely essential to an OCD tab guy such as myself that regularly browses with around 100 tabs open. The only problem is I can't use it with Firefox 4. Please update!! And to the developer(s), thank you for a simple and effective add-on.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.7.2.1-signed). 

Firefox Sync for Firefox 3.5/3.6

Do Not Use For Bookmark Syncing. Ok for everything else. Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Completely ruined my bookmarks. I have a large bookmark collection that I have been building for years, and is a very important for my business and just about everything that I do in a web browser. Firefox Sync jumbled all my bookmarks, created duplicates, and deleted/lost some of them. This is absolutely unacceptable as a bookmark sync utility. I restored from a recent bookmark backup, and re-installed Xmarks. Everything works fine again now. Xmarks works perfectly and I have zero sync issues using it.That being said, Firefox sync also syncs passwords, preferences, tabs, and history. I still use Firefox sync to sync these and it seems to be doing ok with those tasks. I know Xmarks will also sync tabs and passwords, but I don't like the idea of any one company/organization having too much of my personal information. Mozilla is a non-profit, and Xmarks/Lastpass is not, and I have a little more trust in Mozilla. People/companies will do unbelievable things to make an extra dollar. Ultimately I trust no one, and I out of the few passwords I sync with Firefox sync, non of which are my important accounts (financial, web servers, etc.).Summary:Firefox Sync = Horrible for syncing bookmarks. Ok for everything else.Xmarks = Best choice for bookmark syncing as of the time of this review.
