TableTools2 - Copy/Sort/Chart/Filter Table&More!

Want contribute, but NOWAYPAL Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Absolutely superb add-on. Thankyou.
I would dearly like to contribute some $ for this, but your only option seems to be PayPal.
NOWAYPAL. I will not use that.
Sorry.
Try something else as well - maybe Google Checkout? You can at least trust them to play nice.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.15). 

Ghostery

Best blocker I've used since JunkBuster Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great add-on! SInce 1997 I had used JunkBuster to keep the junk out of my browsing and minimise bandwidth utilisation. It worked very well, up until the time when the JunkBuster project was abandoned. I later moved to Ad-Block Plus, then added NoScript, but they were never quite enough, and I have long missed having the fine degree of control over my web browsing that JunkBuster was able to provide me with.
However, with the addition of Ghostery, I think I have nearly got back to the degree of control I had in 1997 - 15 years ago.
Sadly, that is *NOT* a measure of progress. :-(

Clip to OneNote

Nice piece of work Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I installed this on 2010-06-14 and have been trialling it fairly extensively. It seems to do exactly what it was designed to do, and very well too. Thankyou for a nice piece of work.
It appears to be trouble-free except for one instance when it seemed to "hang" in its little busy window whilst clipping to OneNote. I cancelled that task and re-clipped the same web page content, and it went fine that time.

SwitchProxy Tool

Was good but now does not work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This Add-on was a nice piece of work by the author and it had proved to be very reliable over the years I used it, but on a recent version of Firefox (I don't recall if it was 3.5 or 3.6) it failed. It caused Firefox to abend on startup, which was a real pain. I was unable to correct this problem and the only way I could fix it was by going to the Add-ons folder in my (User) profile and deleting the appropriate folder.

For me, this folder was:
C:\Documents and Settings\(User)\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\985076rf.(User)\extensions\{27A2FD41-CB23-4518-AB5C-C25BAFFDE531}
