My Reviews

Simple RSS Reader (SRR)

SRR is very useful!. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works great in my FF v.19 under Win XP.
Congratulations to the author!

Q:
-- Any chance to upgrade SRR,
so it also installs/works in FF version 27+ ??

When I try to install SRR
in my Android Tablet (Samsung, 10.1 inch screen)
in FF version 27+,
the Mozilla addons site says:
...."sorry, cannot installl it -
this addon not (yet) compatible
with Firefox version 27...".

Help, Alvaro!

Referrer Control

Works great in FF Windows - but refuses to install in Android Tablet under FF v. 26.0.1 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks muzuiget!
The instructions in your reply to my question (below),work perfectly on my FF 19 browser in a Win desktop.

But when I tried to install "Referrer Control" in the Firefox browser of my Tablet:
(latest Android 4.2.2 Samsung TAB3 P5200 10.1 screen),

the FF addons site, says:
"cannot install Referrer Control because the version of my FF browser is: FF 26.0.1 (latest)".

Yet, the FF addon site, says that
the great "Referrer Control" addon should work OK
with "FF version 26.0".

Yet, it refuses to install in my Android Tablet.

Help from the master, please!
thanks,inSF

Referrer Control

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Used before the older RefControl FF ext.,
but RefControl is not available in FF Android
(Samsung Tab 3 Tablet 10.1).

Seems this addon is just what I need.

But...HOW do I specify simply,that
whenever I visit a specific site,
for ex: ==> http:// bbc.com

I want the bbc site to "think"
that the "referrer" URL the request comes from, is,
for ex: ==> http:// zzz.com

I see many options in this addon, (skip, remove, etc...),
but I don't know how to set up in the Dialog Box
what I described above (my need),exactly...

I am confused.
Any clear baby steps, please...author? anyone?Help!!!

thanks!.inSF

TabFlip

Really like TabFlip but one little problem Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Really useful! Works well with default settings.

But...sometimes it suddenly starts "flipping" tabs,
by just moving the mouse sideways (to left or to right),
WITHOUT my pressing the right mouse button at all,
Just moving the mouse will flip through the browser tabs!

It always happens suddenly - at random times - ,
I don't know why...

As soon as I "disable" the FlipTab addon,
the mouse behavior returns to normal,
ie: I move the mouse and the tabs are not flipped = normal.

Anybody else has this problem?
I really hope this can be fixed,
because I ***really like TabFlip***.

using Firefox 19, XP Pro-SP3.

Docs Online Viewer

I like it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Seems simple, fast and effective, so far.
Author: good job!.

Question 1:
======
How do you specify if a file (PDF, XLSX, etc) is to be opened by either:
Google Docs Viewer -OR- ZOHO Viewer?
(I don't see anywhere a choice for the user to select which viewer to use...).

Question 2:
========
Is there a way to turn OFF the little ["HELP"] button,
that always appears in the lower-right of screen,
when viewing any document with this great plugin.
This ["HELP"] button is not needed at all...
Can you remove it?

Thanks!
SFdude

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

Awesome! + 1 Quick Question Rated 5 out of 5 stars

D/L today the latest version of TT 1.6.
Awesome !!!

1 Quick Question:
------------------------
Following your video tutorial,
I tried this Search:
(with a minus sign for "negative 200")
>-200
on the "Unrecognized Currency" column,
of the "Demo" Table of your site.
(JUST like you show in your video...).

But, after pressing <Enter>,
I still see ALL the Table rows...not the "selected" rows.
I would hope to see only the Table rows
with numbers "greater than minus 200" in this Column...

Maybe the word "YMB" in this Col., is interfering with the search query?

Similar "> 100" query on the last Col. of this Table,
(with the "$" dollar sign),
works OK!

btw:
All other Search queries on my other Tables, work great...
Help!

Firefox 11 (latest version).

PS: --- Update ---
Don't ask me why - my query (above) suddenly worked OK!
(probably something I was doing wrong...).

QuickDrag

DO NOT INSTALL ....! Now has Adware & Spyware Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Too bad!
New version includes
unauthorized Adware & Spyware...

This * was * an excellent FF extension.

But the author has gone "evil",
...see comments & warnings below this one.
How can the author be so dumb?

Oh well, UNinstall forever...3...2...1.

BTW:
I think Mozilla should urgently review
this ext. for SAFETY
and compliance with Mozilla guidelines.

Here is the ANUBIS analysis

NoSquint

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Love NoSquint.

Question:
------------
...is there a keyboard shortcut,
or other easy way to TEMPORARILY suspend
the NoSquint COLOR SETTINGS on a site ?

I need to only STOP the special COLOR SETTINGS
for a short time,
but leave the Zoom level
as I've chosen previously...for ex. 120%.

Reason:
----------
NoSquint really helps me read
pages....
(White letters on Green bkg with 120% Zoom!).

But...when NoSquint is "active",
certain page elements, photos, etc.
of some sites, do not render correctly, or not at all...

So,
I'd like to quickly stop NoSquint
to "peek" at the current page with its natural colors
- and then quickly re-start NoSquint again...
(via mouse or kbd shortcut).

Any solution?

ImTranslator - Google, Microsoft Translator, TTS

Good voice Quality / Bad, limited implementation Rated 2 out of 5 stars

The Quality of the voice is very good.

Unfortunately, the TTS (= Text to Speech),
is limited to 1,000 (one thousand) characters, only!.

That means that trying to listen
to a longer article (for a visually-impaired person like me),
makes the IM-TTS impractical:

...copy 1000 chars, paste, listen,
copy another 1000 chars, paste, listen, etc.
Well, it's just not usable in the real world.

There are other free TTS services online,
with 10,000 characters...too bad for IM-TTS...

I would use them
if they had a more generous quota of text,
to be heard ALL AT ONCE.

Status-bar Scientific Calculator

Very good BUT does not work with FF ver > 4... Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Very useful calculator
...used for a long time in FF 3.6x.

BUT does not work with FF versions
greater than 4, anymore.
...and certainly NOT with FF 9.01.

What a pity!
And the Author, Sunny Goyal is oblivious to his users.
Not a word or updates from him...

Sunny:
- will you update your extension to work with FF 9+ ?

thank you for any feedback or answer.

Tile Tabs

[SOLVED] Can not slide Tabs <left or right> in Firefox "Tab Bar" anymore! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

[PROBLEM SOLVED]

Next day, when I restarted FF 3.6.24,
the problem (described below), was gone.
Sliding FF tabs left / right with mouse along the FF Tab Bar,
works OK now.

A *special thanks* to the Author
for replying to my concern, so quickly.

Excellent FF extension = 5 Stars!

SFdude

--- OLD posting starts below, N/A anymore ---
Installed "Tile-Tabs 5.2" ext.
in Firefox 3.6.24 (XP-SP3).

Now, (using the mouse),
I can not slide / move the browser Tabs anymore,
to the left or to the right of each other,
in the FF "tab bar" !

This used to work just fine before! grrr...try it!
Author comments and fix?

Locationbar²

Not compatible with ext "Location Bar2" ?? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Also having an incompatibility problem, like Tekmoor.
After installing the [ InstantFox ] ext. for FF,
suddenly [ LocationBar2 ] does not work anymore. :( ....

(ie:no red underline of Domain Name visible in Location Bar, etc).

Is there a way to make your great extension be compatible?Thanks!SFdudeFF 3.6.17, XP-SP3 fully updated.

Open With

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It was great,
but v.501 does not work with Firefox 3.6.15 (latest),
under XP-SP3.

Went back to "Open With" version 5.0.

btw:
just like many other people,
I will stick with Firefox 3.6 series,
until FF 4 "stabilizes", in the future.

(I love my FF extensions *too much*, to jump into the FF 4 hoopla & extensions headache...).

CoLT

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great!

Two powerful suggestions:

1) Add (user-selectable) kbd shortcut keys.
This helps to avoid digging into right-click menus repeatedly, when you have MANY URLs to copy...

2) Add an option to copy & run the page/link URL through the "goo.gl" URL shortener.

Thanks!

Status-bar Scientific Calculator

Auto-complete right-most parenthesis Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Sunny,

Great add-on!
An easy to implement suggestion for quicker and easier expression entry:
Instead of forcing the user to enter all closing parentheses,allow the user to simply press ENTER key,
without entering each CLOSING parenthesis...

For ex: right now, if you type: sqrt (9 <== without the closing Parenthesis!
and you press the Enter key, you'll get a red "Invalid Expression" error warning.

The suggestion:
-----------------------
don't show the error warning...
instead auto-close the missing right parenthesis
and just return the calculation result, ie: 3.

Hope you can include this feature in the next version.
THANKS Sunny!
