My Reviews

just speak this

must have Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The effort alone is already worth five stars. Together with 'Fangs', this will greatly speed up the webdevelopment process for blind/severely dyslectic users.

Fangs Screen Reader Emulator

Helpfull tool Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm redesigning a website for a client, who wants it to be more friendly for visitors with disabilities. This addon helps me test my code for screwups ("bulletone.gif, bullettwo.gif, bulletthree"... arg!) and saves a lot of headache!

Xmarks Sync

used to be great Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I've been using this add-on for years, but I'm afraid I'll have to disable it for the time being. It lately has a habit of rearanging my bookmarks and making an absolute mess of my tags! Things seem to go awry when I bookmark all open tabs, ad new tags, or place existing tags inside folders. It will then show a bunch of old and long gone bookmark-all-tabs bookmarks inside that tag. I'm sorry because this used to be a marvelous add-on, but I can't work like this. Sigh...

Do Not Auto Activate Pinned Tabs

I though I was the only one who had this problem Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Its funny, but I had no idea how much the default behaviour of firefo annoyed me, until I installed this addon.

close last tab > enter app tab > click a few links > realise you just messed up your whole 'system' and frantically click the back button > forget what you were looking for > click forward > mess up app tab AGAIN

I wish that opening a new normal tab when closing the last one was a buildin choice in the Firefox options menu, but at least now I can use this addon. Thanks a milion!

Auto Complete

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I LOVE this thing! my grandmother has bad fingerjoints and this addon really helps her surf the web with less typing. She could use speech-to-text software, but she refuses because it 'makes her feel old'... even though she's 98, hahaha! XD

Xmarks Sync

Lifesaver! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

You never know how much you use your bookmarks untill you want to replace your harddisk and realize far, far too late you're hammering the wrong one to pieces.

Yup. Fail of the year.

I lost my files that day, but not my bookmarks. If you don't install this, you're either crazy or you have a life outside the internet... which is basically the same thing. ;-)

And to another reviewer here: don't one-star it because it does what it promises to do, rather than just what YOU want. Its not the addon's fault if you're too lazy to read the description.

Adblock Edge

It's not about adding new features, it's about removing unwanted ones Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Some people don't seem to get the point of this fork. It is not about adding shiny new features; its about restoring a good-addon-turned-bad to it's former glory.

Do I have a problem with supporting small websites? No.

Do I have a problem with installing something called 'addBLOCKER' that uses an option-out system in order to live up to its name? Yes.

Do I have a problem with said addon if it claims this is needed to protect small websites, when this apparently includes Amazon and other websitegiants that are notorious for disrespecting userprivacy? You better believe I do!

This is not just a fork; its a signal that some of us won't sell out that easy.

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

An unexpected Evernote tool Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love Evernote, but it is very fussy when it comes to tables. This addon helps save a lot of frustration, especially if you like to change the way the data is sorted before posting it in a new note. Excellent!

Transparent standalone images

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This addon gives me mixed feelings. On one side, I'm really glad it exists, but on the other side, I shouldn't be needing an addon to fix this issue in the first place. Oh well.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (initial.rev20). 

InstantFox Quick Search

Duplicate engines for fun and profit Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Four reason why I want to marry this addon:

1) I can set shortcuts that even my (almost non-existent) memory can hold on to.

2) I can finally, FINALLY change the default search engine of the adress bar when used without shortcuts, without messing up and scarring poor Firefox config settings for life.

3) DuckDuckGo settings without cookies or saving them in the cloud! Just set the settings how you like them, copy the generated booklet url, do a search, replace the searchword in the url you get with %q and voila! You're set!

4) You could be native Dutch/German/Spanish/Martian, but sometimes need to get English search results. Or maybe you just like to change your DuckDuckGo link colors on saturdays without having to redo the settings everytime. We won't judge you. But whatever your fancy, this addon can make your life a lot easier by creating duplicate engines with each their own shortcut to quickly switch between settings. Experiment!

Farewell, searchbar. You served me well, and I thank you for that, but it looks like there's a new kid in town.

FEBE

Easy to use, a blessing to have Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is one of the easiest add-ons I've used in years. Most options and menus speak for itself, and if you still need help, almost all of them have an extensive explanation available with just one click of a button. Don't be fooled though: it might not look like rocket science, but its possibilities are nothing to sneeze at. The default settings are already great, but once combined with a Dropbox folder, this add-on is a BEAST.

Quick Markup

six stars if I could Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This tool is ideal for quickly grabbing a piece of a page and saving it on your computer, or jotting down a few quick notes and share it with others. However, my favorite function has to be the ability to quickly (no fuss, just click and save) grab an entire page, without having to make thirty seperate screenshots and trying to them together pixelperfect in photoshop. Perfect for those 100-year old online tutorials that you *know* are going to dissapear when you need them the most. Using it in FF15 and giving it five stars (six if I could!)

TagSieve

Together with Xmarks, TagSieve is unbeatable Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This should be standard in FireFox. FF15 broke the link in the bookmarksmenu, but everything else seems to work just fine after you add the blue icon to the toolbar. This is not done automatically. I prefer it this way, because I dislike new addons that clutter by toolbars without asking, but some users might be confused what to do after install.

My ABSOLUTE favorite, is how I can click the blue icon and a list of all my tags shows up. I click a tag and a second menu shows all bookmarks with that tag, plus a new list of all my tags. I choose another tag, and now I only get bookmarks that have BOTH tags.

For example, I have three tags: tutorials, photoshop, software. Depending on the order I click the tags, I can get different selections, such as the following:

Photoshop > software = sites that have software to use with photoshop.
Photoshop > tutorials = sites that have great photoshop tutorials that I bookmarked for future reference
Software > tutorials = software I use to make my own tutorials to post on my blog

Once you realize the power of this system, you will never go back to regular folders again.

Tip: if you don't want to spend days re-tagging hundreds of bookmarks after a systemcrash (html backups do NOT hold tags!), get Xmarks as well. Together, these two are unbeatable!

eCleaner

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Ive been looking for a long time for something like this :)

What would absolutely make it perfect is some way to also remove leftover files and folders from the profile folder in user/app/roaming in windows. I have no idea if its possible, but a suggestion cant hurt ;)

Easy Copy

dont close the window, dont... oh, crap. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Is your blogging behavior something like this?

* find great piece of advice
* decide to use it in that tutorial you're crafting in an external text editor
* tell yourself to copy the text first, then go back and copy the url and name of original author, THEN close the window!
* repeat mantra: "copy, dont close in instinct, copy, dont close on instinct, copy, dont..."
*go to memebase and make ragecomic about how you closed the window on instinct

If you answered "yes", you want this add-on.

Mycroft Project

Firefox at its finest Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A search engine plugin to search plugins that you can use for searching by adding them to your search engine plugins.

Some would call this an add-on... I call it a work of art.

UI Eraser

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It looks complex, but is surprisingly userfriendly. Does what it's supposed to do with minimal hassle. I'm keeping an eye on this one :)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.2). 

View Source Chart

Oh... so *that's* why there's a wrapper placed there Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A must have, especially when working with code that you didn't write yourself. If you ever had to plow through the work of someone who suffered from a chronic case of 'projectile sourcecode vomiting' or (god help you) grandma used frontpage to build a website and wants you to 'stop making it look weird', then you will definitly appreciate this addon.

Print Edit

This will save your printer Rated 5 out of 5 stars

*wants to print a one-page tutorial from a blog entry*

*falls asleep*

*printer spews out half a rainforest because it decided I need all the comments as wel*

So, uhm... yeah. I use this add-on a LOT. Hehehe...

Awesome tool, especially when printing something from a blog or a forumpost and you dont need all the google ads, shiny signatures or avatar that will drain your cartridge dry.
