Adblock Plus

Always the best Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm have been using the desktop version for ages also for mail. If hate ads. Their only use for me is to know what is must avoid.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.6.7.1-signed). 

QuickWiki

Seopped working Rated 2 out of 5 stars

It worked very well, but stopped with Firefox 29 and still the same with version 30. When the Wikipedia or Wiktionary window should open only a small window shows a message "Looking up xxxxxxx on Wikipedia". I removed and reinstalled, but no way.

The developer does not offer any contact, but only a way to donate... strange. Not possible to give this add-on a 5 star, as it might deserve, because this seems to be permanent.

Proxy List

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It used to be a quite very good add-on, but that changed. The proxies are now not only not working but also full of too much pub. Ad Blocker, BlockSite and others do hide the ads, but they are often so many that they clock Firefox and it disappears and I have to close it with Task Manager to be able to restart it. Some proxy sites are very dangerous because if you are not careful they will install you unwanted programs, spies and trojan horses.This is not the fault of the add-on or the developer's, but it is no longer recommendable. Avoid it! Run away from it. Pity.

glowywine

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This and the other Glowies has been my preferred for years. Is is a pity I had to give them up because the developer does not update them. He doesn't have to if he does not wish, but someone else could keep his past good work alive.

What is this? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

What is this?
This is not a review, but a question because the expected add-on description is empty, and there is no image.

Google Translator for Firefox

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Most practical of all, no doubt, but some languages translate into dialects and not standard. And then there is Google spying, as previously noticed. Why not replace Google translator with a neutral one?

It Works Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It does exactly what the description claims, and it does it well. It saves a lot of time and nerves. Thank you.

Proxy List

Nothing shows up on Firefox 17 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I installed this very useful add-on. Nothing appeared. Restarted Firefox twice and always nothing. It is there on the add-ons list; checked the Options and seem to be OK. Disabled, re-enabled, uninstalled, re-installed, and always nothing, always checking everywhere. It is there, but it is just as if it has not been installed. The obvious question is: -Is it supposed to work with FF 17? FF is changing versions too fast in my opinion, and probably the developers get trapped with such speed. To keep that speed, Firefox should be able to give users some information in cases like this, if this the case. Is this right or is there a bug?

Edit: Answer to NWK.

1. Never used or installed your add-on.
2. It did not install the icon.
3. Windows 7 Ultimate, 64-bit. I have been using Firefox since its beginning and before that I used the Mozilla browser.

Thank you for replying.

BlockSite

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

BlackList and WhiteList both use the same list of sites, Therefore, we can't use this add-on for allowing a not blocked site without giving the notice "This website, or elements thereof, are on the Blocksite blacklist (or not on the whitelist) and have not been loaded." It seem to be impossible to use both lists simultaneously. So, it is very effective if you need to block sites, but the withleist is not usable.

Very glad to have it. Full instructions. Thank you.

Gradient iCool (Blue)

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

It is beautiful and I like it a lot, but the text is too small and I can't use it. Pity.

The text is distorted, but this is not too bad. It is a mistake making text display in such a small size. I bet anyone over 30 yo will have more or less problems reading. Is there an acceptable justification for this error? If this id ever corrected it will be one of the very best, no doubt.

Video DownloadHelper

Useless Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Yeah! It would be realy great if it downloaded all sreaming videos, but that is not the case. It doesn't do any better than RealPlayer. It fails wher RP fails. So... just one useless more to the haystack.

It was a great thema Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I have used the ancient theme for Firefox 2, and it was my preferred.
This new one seems darker and has bugs. On the Library we can't read the fields on the lower right corner; on the browser we can hardly read the text on the not active tabs and can't read it at all when we pass the mouse over. Some icons are definitely too dark and we can't see them either highlighted or not. When we enlarge the text, the scroll bars also become much wither.
I'll suspend using it until an update solves all these bugs. I'll be back because I did like it, but I hope the text will be more readable, that it is not so dark or slightly bolder would help too.
The rating has no value because i don't mean to rate it as it is now, but this was not accepted without.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.5.3).
