My Reviews


looks like amateur, buggy software Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Great when it works, which is half the time. The rest of the time, it hangs.

Also, you restore a profile and tell it to restart with it, and your layout changes (like it has the single button at top instead of a menu). This was not my layout for months.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (8.7.1-signed). 


Sux dix! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

If you're scolling through a web page with wheel and happen to move the mouse to the left of the screen, it jumps you back and forward in your history. Drove me crazy the first 5 minutes.

High Definition Video

Doesn't work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Leaves rez set to 720p when 1080 is available on youtube. I have to set rez manually.


SUX DIX!! Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This is what happens when high school kids write software that grownups use.

Works, but the toolbar button uses a huge amount of space by showing the status in the button text ("Blacken: automatic mode is off"), which you don't need to see all the time. You set it once and forget it.

This causes the button to be five times as wide as the other ones and take up a large chunk of your toolbar. This is so annoying that I am going to uninstall blacken.

There at LEAST should be an option not to show status in the button text. If the kid is too lazy to do this, then he should shorten the button text to "Blacken: auto".

Also, it works by inserting HTML text color codes around all the text, but it does it many, many times. If you copy the text to paste it somewhere else, these codes get copied, too.

All in all, an amateur hack job.

Case Changer

This is what happens when high school kids write software for use by grownups Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Sometimes (randomly) it blanks the entire text box and Undo won;t fix it. This sux dix when editing as long text box, like blog entries. On top of that, you have to reload the page before editing your text again. I always do select all, copy before using this so I can recover if it fux everything up.

You have to right-click the little icon to get the menu. You should be able to left click, too.

Should be invokable by a hot key-combo. Now, you have to right-click and find the "change case" in the context menu. Usually just easier to retype the text.

Doesn't work at all in many text boxes. Probably ones controlled by JavaScript or something, but I don;t give a damn because sometimes it doesn't work. I don;t care why.

I frequently have to copy my text, paste it in another web page's input box, change the case, then copy and paste it back.

eyedropper Button

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

AMAZING! Before this, I have had to do a screen capture and open it in photoshop. Make it restartless.

Perfect. A required addon!

About Startup

Worthless BULL sheeyit! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

One startup time is 1311105. Even if that's milliseconds, it's still 21 minutes. And there's no way to clear the log, and there should be a decimal point with the value called "seconds" instead of "milliseconds", and some time intervals are negative numbers even though we're not in a hyperbolic spacetime.

Casey Case Converter

Next-to-useless Rated 1 out of 5 stars

IT WON'T WORK ON JUST THE SELECTED TEXT. It converts the whole text box.

Someone said "well you can't expect it to work in TinyMCE text boxes." Well I don't know what tinyMCE is but it looks like almost all my text boxes are that kind. So how come the "recover old form text" addon can alter any text box? If this addon is written in VB, I bet I could make it work....so YOU make it work, lazy programmer!

Until then, I give this addon 1 star. To everybody else: check back next week. The lazy programmer will have deleted this review because it makes his useless addon look bad and lowers his rating.

Megaupload NO TIME + AUTO DOWNLOAD = MU Bundle Final

This add-on is com plete bullshit written by an amateur Rated 1 out of 5 stars

See all this crap you have to do to use this addon? Except for "fill in the captcha", this is all what software (like an add-on) is supposed to do, not what the user is supposed to do if he wants to use your addon:

(1) open in FF browser Megaupload link
- write captha and press ENTER
- download with Flashgot
- choose SAVE TO location
- be sure, have u got enough HDD space
- press OK to download
- wait until program will reserve place on HDD
- PAUSE LINK after download 50KB


The definition of simple elegance! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Smooth and really useful! I use it ALL the time. This add-on reminds me of the kind of utilities I used to write before I abandoned the business world. But it COULD be even better with:

-- Units (numbers) at each 100 pixel hash mark ("100px", "200px", etc...) like a ruler has, and add an option to select the digit font, or at least to make it bold.

-- Configurable fill color and transparency for the rectangle selection. Try using it on a page nearly the same color blue as the fixed fill color.

-- Don't grey out the screen! Instead, use a dlg box saying that you're in measureit, with an "exit measureit" button. If you spend time in another window and and forget, you have a hell of a time figuring out why firefox is "hung". And it was NOT obvious the first time I used it that I had to click the little icon again. This box should be suppressable in config, which should let you choose the dlg box, the grey-out (as it is now), or no indication At least make the icon in the status bar be fluorescent orange or something.

-- make the point at the center of the crosshair bright red

-- Show the area of the selection too (width times height)

-- keep the little numbers box above (or below) the crosshairs all the time. As it is, the box sometimes moves and sometimes doesn't, depending on some inscrutable combination of where on the screen you start the selection, the direction you drag, and how far you drag the crosshair.

-- an option to change the color of the crosshair

-- when you hold down BOTH mouse buttons, magnify the screen near the crosshair. This is necessary for when you need an exact distance, not "almost" the right answer.

-- You can't see the grey crosshair on a grey background (like the bar at the top of blogger) and you can barely see it on many other backgrounds. Instead, make the pixels which are the crosshair be either full white or full black, depending on the luminosity of the background at that point.
