Lazarus: Form Recovery

A lifesaver, but doesn't work on everything Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This has saved me from losing what I've written so many times, but unfortunately it doesn't work on Youtube (or Google+), and I've been routinely losing comments I've typed due to various issues (sidebar closing when clicking out, accidentally hitting the back/forward button on my mouse).

Just now I've lost something extremely important (yes, on Youtube, go figure), and have come here to check for updates, only to find that it hasn't been updated since 2011.

I will now go try to look for another addon so this never happens again.

Good while it lasted.

Edit: Nothing else seems to exist, which just boggles my mind.

Edit2: The author's site is down; it looks like this addon will never be updated again.

uBlock Origin

APB was revolutionary; now it's been dethroned. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Randomly discovered this in a comment in an issue from a userscript for Youtube that I thought was a preference troll.

How glad I was to be wrong.

Goodbye APB; uBlock is better in (almost) every single way.

LastPass Password Manager

I could not use the internet without it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

With the amount of security issues over the last few years and the ever expanding social networks and plethora of websites across the internet, it's pretty much impossible to have unique passwords for everything.

Password manager services take care of that, and LastPass is one of the best.

(I'd write out a multi-paragraph review here, but I'm writing this spontaneously so maybe I'll edit it at a later date.)

Note: The addon on AMO seems woefully out of date. You should grab the latest from LP's website: https://lastpass.com/download

Downloads Window

Mozilla and their constant unwelcome decisions Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Recently found out that Mozilla decided to remove the legacy download code from the browser.

After searching for a while, I found a link to this in a thread on Mozillazine.

Brings back the old download window, just as it shows.

Unfortunately, there seems to be quite a few issues (at time of writing). Ordered in terms of importance:

Improved in 0.3.3 - 1) It doesn't seem to support skins fully. The bottom frame of the window is white and there are no buttons next to the download, just some small bar which seems to react like there's buttons there if clicked. Screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/okYIuS4.png

Fixed in 0.3.3 - 2) The window size/position isn't kept. This can be quite irritating.

3) Hitting the hotkey to open/close the download window doesn't close it; forced to manually close it.

4) Downloads are still retained, requiring a manual clear. Doubtful anything can be done about this.

5) A tiny bit slow to startup (compared to the old window which was instant) and functions like another window popup. Unsure if this can actually be changed since it's not a part of the core UI like the old window was.

6) The 'clear downloads' button is clickable when a download starts, resulting in it going grey until the download finishes. Not a big issue, just a consistency problem.

Hopefully these things can be improved, but even with these issues it's still better than that new sluggish piece of garbage introduced a few revisions back. (Why they thought to bring up your library is beyond me. If it's full of stuff, it takes time to load up and the window is a bit sluggish, not to mention it forcefully resizes it and causes your downloads to be retained, which is entirely unneeded.)

Edit: I have no idea how to respond to an author's post here, if it's even possible. (If not, Mozilla, what are you doing?!)

The window size/position is now fixed.

The skin issue is still partially there. The white bar was fixed, but the buttons are still missing. I''m using an older version of https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/ft-deepdark/ (3.2.3) because I don't agree with the changes made in later versions (nor have the knowledge of how to change things back short of copying image files)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.1-signed). 


Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Was one of the most invaluable addons for Firefox 3.6.

Now with the whole 3.6 being deprecated and everyone forced to upgrade to 12 (I did so after my own testing in VM to try and get the browser functioning as much as possible like 3.6), I have to report on this addon.

The stock addon version does not work properly.

The development channel version does not work properly.

There's a version on github which works better, almost perfect, aside from one critical flaw; it doesn't switch tabs properly after unloading one. It's either supposed to do nothing or go to the next active tab. Currently, all it does is open the tab directly to the right of the tab you've unloaded.

The '4' version from a recent reviewer does not fix this issue either.

Sadly, unless someone else takes this up (unlikely), the addon will have this critical problem which will severely affected my browsing habits.

As much as I hate 4+ and want to stay on 3.6, I can't deal with it anymore. More and more sites are not supporting it, it has no new technology, and with the latest Flash player it has crashing issues.

Why do things get abandoned? :(

Menu Editor

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Hasn't been updated for a year which means the main reason I even downloaded this addon will never be added.

I downloaded this after finally trying to get Firefox 4+ (12) to look as much as possible like 3.6 (which I've just now tried to 'upgrade' from). Unfortunately, it cannot re-arrange the history or bookmarks menus, the former of which has a needless change of the 'recently loaded ___' moved to the top.

Regardless, it's still a good addon, but it is a shame I'll most likely never see the feature I wanted added.

Edit: Disabling or removing this addon breaks the menu items. I started Firefox in safe mode to find out what addon was causing my browser to startup slow and when I went back to normal all my menu items were arranged with the addon items near the bottom.

Removed the menuedit.rdf in the profile directory and it reset the menus, but now there's no separators displayed (yet they're there in the config option). I've uninstalled the addon and my separators are still broken.

Good thing I have no backups prior to my Firefox 12 installation. *sigh*
