Clean Links

Don't understand how to use Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Giving it 5 stars even though I really don't understand how it works. Will it catch redirects and obfuscated links out of the box? If not, no idea what to do with this.

Also, can't select any of the options. Nothing happens when I hover the mouse over those or click on any of them.

Maybe the developer or someone here can help.

Cleanest Addon Manager

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Good little add-on, but would be great if you could bring back the pre-40 grey background.

TO AVOID SPYWARE AND ADWARE, AVOID NEWER VERSIONS/ GET THE 4.0.5 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Install or reinstall instead the 4.0.5, which appears still to be working, at least on YT (just checked). This is the last version before the current plague of garbage. I've been ignoring all the updates since 12/2013.

The 4.0.5 is still available.

Note: the adware problem I reported in one of my previous reviews, for the 4.0.1, (pop-up for Vine Video Project from FVD) was taken care of and is not present in the 4.0.5. As far as I can tell, the 4.0.5 is the last "clean" version.

Lightbeam for Firefox

Icon disappears with latest 1.2.1 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Title says it all. Not to be found anywhere, even from items iin customize. Also, but not unique to this update, toggle buttons don't do anything except appear and disappear when clicked on.

Re. DNTM loading ad page Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Hello - I do understand your concerns, downloading a piece of privacy software and then seeing a constant advertisement for that software would be concerning to anyone.

I handle a lot of our support and I've never heard of a user reporting that issue before, and I can assure you that it is not intentional. I will escalate that issue to our engineering team ASAP.

To be sure you've completely removed DoNotTrackMe, please go to tools>addons>extensions, and make sure DNTMe is not present in your extensions folder."

I already said that I do not have DNTM, nor any other Abine extensions, installed. I did have DNTM several years ago, but I absolutely removed all traces of it. Not only did I remove it in the Add-ons Manager, but also in prefs.js, in the Firefox default profile folder. It is nowhere to be seen. Nothing, gone, no trace of it, obliterated.

Anyway, that was several years ago and this just started recently.

Besides that, it happened also from a completely new, clean profile, where DNTM was never installed.

Throbber Restored

The install from github is working great now Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Working fine now. Doesn't appear inside a box, and stays greyed out until activity. Thanks for this Add-on.

Empty Cache Button

Has stopped showing notification with FF 28 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Nice little Add-on, but "Success" notification needs to be fixed. FF 28

I have disabled, removed and reinstalled with no change in this.

Redirect Remover

Now incompatible and disabled Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Incompatible with FF 26 and disabled Please update ASAP. Ordinarily would give it 5 stars.

Flash Video Downloader - YouTube HD Download [4K]

Now comes with junk Adware Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Not only is the download button completely unreliable, but now this Add-on has started spamming me with a small pop-up

New 4.0 Download button still playing hide and seek Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Download button still playing hide and seek on YouTube/Firefox 24. Quitting and reopening appears to bring it back. But very annoying behavior.

Flash Video Downloader - YouTube HD Download [4K]

3.9.6 No longer working on YouTube Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Or should say it is working erratically. Download button disappearing, but clearing the cache and cookies in Firefox 24 seems to get it going again.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.9.6.1-signed). 

Close All Tabs (Reloaded)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great little Add-on. Indispensable, and it's now working again with Firefox 24.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.3.1-signed.1-signed). 

Secure Login

New version directs to Abine.com Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is an excellent Add-on, but I don't like the new version 1.0.0 automatically bringing me to Abine.com for advertising purposes. Whether or not Abine.com is for profit or not is beside the point. This shouldn't be happening.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.0.1-signed). 

Check for Updates in Help Menu

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent little Add-on. Restores the original Firefox Update UI to the Help menu. This means updates will not automatically be downloaded upon checking. Asks for user confirmation, thereby giving you the choice to download or not. Extremely useful if you want to back up your Profile first, copy the current application, or wait a bit to see if any problems develop with a new version BEFORE installing. Mozilla should never have removed this.

Autohide Tabbar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great Add-on. Now updated so that all tabs have a close tab button.

Autohide Tabbar

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very useful Add-on with one major drawback (or possible bug) which is that when the auto-hide feature is enabled, only the currently active tab has a close (x) button (Mac/Firefox 4.) In other words, in order to close any other open tabs, that tab must first be selected and only then will the close (x) button appear for that tab. This is impractical because it means navigating away from the currently viewed page to close any open tabs. (Only with auto-hide disabled will all tabs appear with the close button, which defeats the purpose of this Add-on.) If not for this I would have given it 5 stars. I hope the developer will consider changing this behavior.
