Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Nice addon until Firefox 15. Causes huge slow down. New tabs quit responding. Makes FF15 unusable.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.9.1-signed). 

Tab Mix Plus

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great addon! I don't know why Mozilla doesn't make this a permanent part of Firefox as it makes tabs work so much better.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.8.3). 

Tiny Menu

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I originally found this addon when I got a netbook and needed to maximize screen space. Now I use it on all my Firefox installs even on a 24" monitor since I rarely use the FF menus and it really allows you to clean up the to menu/toolbar area. Highly recommended.

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

Very nice addon. Saves me a lot of time getting my downloads into the right folders.

SyncPlaces

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Fantastic! Simply works perfectly. Love being able to sync with json for full functionality and at the same time publishing the XBEL with the style sheet so my bookmarks are available via my web site with a really nice functional web page. Thanks!!

LastPass Password Manager

Forces you to use their servers Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Pretty unbelievable that a company would attack a potential customer who wants to use his own server instead of the LastPass servers like this:

"Opinions like this come from ignorance of the fact that there is a better way. Are you 100% against Mozilla Weave too? Online backups? The hundreds of other services that use the same principals? The only way we can fight this ignorance is education."

Somewhere I read your philosophy is to read every email and forum post and listen to your customers. Apparently, that is just marketing hype. Dismissing potential customers as ignorant for wanting to do things differently than you think they should is just plain rude and no way to build your business or inspire confidence that you will listen to your customers wants.

Some people like your product but don't want to use your servers. Is that so hard to understand? There can be many reasons for this. Some may not trust your security. Some may not trust your server response and uptime. Some just like to keep their data on their own servers. Some just want the flexibility to choose their software and their hosting provider separately. Some have tight corporate IT restrictions on what they can store on other servers or what sites they can access. They are all valid reasons for potential customers to not want to use your servers whether you think so or not.

As for Weave you can run your own Weave server if you want. You aren't locked into Mozilla servers. As for online backups there are many solutions that don't lock you into a particular host. The same goes for just about every other service out there.

LastPass looks like a great product other than being forced to use the LastPass servers. A product I'd even pay for if I had the choice to sync through my own server.
