My Reviews

Autofill Forms

Inaccurate Form Fill Reads Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This is the third time over the years I have tried this form filler. It still cannot get simple things like ZIP CODE or FIRST NAME right. I will not be trying it again. Unfortunately there are NO ALTERNATIVES that work in Firefox as a simple basic form-filler with a default profile and a simple hotkey.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.4). 

AutoFill Forms (e10s)

No Hotkey Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It seems like it is well planned and might work but why on earth would they not allow a hotkey to auto-fill data from a default profile? That is the most basic item needed for a form-fill add-on.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.3). 

F.B. Purity - Cleans Up Facebook

Very good - but some difficulties Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I used this for a few years (and donated twice) but the author is a bit on the cranky side and he (admittedly) has trouble keeping up with Facebook's changes. Links to his URL are also blocked by Facebook. But you should give it a try.

This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Old Compose | Restore Gmail Classic Compose Window

Locks up Compose completely - FF 35.01 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This totally locked up my ability to compose anything in gmail. The active link on the compose button was not there after installing this add-on. All was fine after I removed this app. I was looking for "Fix Compose for Gmail" like on Chrome, but they don't provide it for FF. :(

All you need to do is hit your "HOME" button on your keyboard. Why would someone need this?

Hide Favicons

Great Potential Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I didn't expect this add-on to wipe out ALL my bookmark's favicons! Easily restored, of course, by removing this add-on, but I wanted, and expected, this to allow you to choose which favicons to remove.

This is potentially a 5 star if it had this option. As it is, it is useless to me.

F.B. Purity - Cleans Up Facebook

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This nice app used to work and I loved it. The author used to try to keep up with Facebook's attempts to shut it down or just make it so it wouldn't work. Wonderful!

UPDATE: The author points out that Firefox updates for FBPurity are out of date. Its funny, but the Firefox older version actually works good. When I use the new versions from the FBP site, it doesn't work at all. I'll keep an eye on future FBP updates and keep trying them until one works, but for now version 9.3 is working great!!

Emoticons for Facebook

Used to Work - Not Now Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I used to love this, but either Facebook evidently made some changes I cannot detect OR Mogicons made a change in the February 09, 2014, update that prevents it from working for me any longer - it doesn't even show up on Facebook.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.3.0.1-signed.1-signed). 

Bookmarks Checker - check for bad links

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Does not work in FF 17. It locks up everything. I wish there was an alternative.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.3.0.1-signed). 

Delete Bookmark Icons

Doesn't Work in FF22 Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Neutral review since it does not work in Firefox v22. FYI: The "FavIcon changer" add-on also does not work any longer in v22.

UPDATE: Since the creator contactd me, I re-tried it. I see now that it does work (sort of) by removing an actual icon but it leaves a silly blank box in its place. So what good is this add-on??? And BEWARE ... it will delete ALL icons from the same site (Yahoo, in this case) without warning when I only thought I was deleting one. this is a useless, nuisance add-on.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.3.1-signed). 

Pinguin

Wonderful Theme! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Of all the themes I've used for Firefox over the years, this is far and away the most comprehensive and so very well thought out. I am totally impressed by the author of this. I highly recommend this if you like something different and you like penguins.

UPDATE and a star reduction to 4: The MAIN complaint is the page forward and backward buttons - they do not gray-out when there is no forward or return available. I depend on that a lot and I hope the author can fix this and update the theme. ALSO, some of the dialogs that come up are a little hard to read because of the background from this theme. Still a great theme but needs some tweaking.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.9). 

Open Link in New Tab

Doesn't work in FF 4.0 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I am going back to FF 3.x because this add-on doesn't work to open links in a new tab in FF 4.0. Another similar add-on also does not work in 4.0. For some reason developers are blocking the opening of new tabs when clicking on links or favorites, etc. Shouldn't need an add-on to begin with if FF would add this basic and highly desirable feature.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.2010121601.1-signed).
