My Reviews

Cookie AutoDelete

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

After having used many others I also tried this one for a couple of weeks, but it didn't do it for me. Especially the UI is confusing, enable/disable state is a gamble, you don't see what you're deleting. I ended up using Cookiebro instead, which is more intuitive, easier to whitelist cookies, easier to partly or temporarily black/whitelist cookies, separates sessions cookies, and most of all: You see the exact cookies that are active listed, and can choose to clear them all in one go, or tag the ones you prefer to stay etc. I'm really surprised to see so few are using Cookiebro and so many have picked this one. Cookiebro really beats this one. Easier on the eyes too.

Cookiebro - Cookie Manager

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Much better than the others I've tried and tested for months, underrated!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2.3). 

black

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This is not black. It's a transient dark grey.

LastPass Password Manager

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Yeah, I tried dashlane for about 2 days, took me that long to realize LastPass wasn't so bad after all. Sure, LP has its quirks when Firefox suddenly decides to change their game and security-protocols change and such, but that is to be expected and isn't something to blame on LastPass, they'll always be running behind. Anyway, long story short:
I've been a LastPass user for almost 10 years when I got fed up with the annoyances in Mozilla Firefox and decided to try 1Password and dashlane and even Kee (with KeePass). Turns out LP quirks are still very minor compared to the annoyances with dashlane and all the hyped up managers. Take it from me;
Sorry, you need way more work and years of experience with user-feedback to beat LastPass at this game. They're miles ahead of dashlane and 1password.

If you want true stability with passwd management, use the ESR of Firefox ( https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/organizations/ ) on Windows 7 x64, don't expect reliability when you're on Microsoft's live test-team (i.e. using Windows 10) or using cutting edge barely tested new browser versions, like FF Quantum, even.

Dark Theme for YouTube™

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Useless. Don't install. More luck installing stylish and picking a good dark Youtube style from userstyles.org, where at least they're being updated.

Theme Font & Size Changer (fixed)

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

You claim all kinds of stuff, but fixing the incompatibility with FF 59 it did not do. Useless banter, as far as that goes. At least Baris is working on FF Quantum compatibility.

Session Boss

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Must have plugin! By far the best one among Tab Managers! It uses FF builtin session manager making it much more reliable. I've tried all of them, this one deserves the highest rating, no competition. It auto-saves with a timed interval. It can almost replace OneTab since it shows you all opened Tabs and Windows as well, per saved session, plus you can name your saved sessions. Never run out of your long-winded research Windows by accident etc. Last but not least; The GUI is better designed than the others out there, making it perfect for even the beginner to get what it does.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2). 

OneTab

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

OK, turns out I was wrong, although it seems to have started when I started using OneTab. I'm rating it 4 and try and start with a fresh profile for FF Quantum. Will see what happens..

Complete YouTube Saver

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

OK, sorry nobody thus far is able to make an add-on out of youtube-dl -F and then let us use ffmpeg and youtube-dl to do it all with options in the background.

Theme Font & Size Changer

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Wow, way to ruin a perfectly fine extension. I know it wasn't your idea to kill perfectly functioning browser, but hell, you could have just told the users NOT to use it anymore, like so many extensions do, with the new firefox.

external IP

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

In FF 42 via Customize I moved the IP to the upper right corner, next to my bookmarks toolbar. Glad I could. Happy to find I can refresh IP via right-click, as well as copy the IP to clipboard via right-click and switch alerts on/off for an IP change. But mostly I just like to know what my public IP is. Also works for IPv6 by the way.

uBlock Origin

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Invaluable add-on. One of the main reasons to use Firefox over others. Stuff like this has saved the internet user experience many times over. Privacy is *my* right, I don't want to send data to anyone when consuming or absorbing data/info, especially not without my consent. Just don't have to be bothered by marketing nonsense. If they can't think of a different model to make a living, they deserve to have unvisited websites. Seriously, I have maintained homepages, netcasts, weblogs, all for free, always, top-notch content. So don't believe the "we need the impressions or clicks" lies. Sad excuses for a retarded business model. Raymond Hill is my new hero. By the way, this µBlock fork *is* the original, that other one is badly maintained, and already caving in to corporate interests.

LastPass Password Manager

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Flawless functional add-on, uses pre-internet encryption, very heavy unbreakable keys stored where they need to be stored. NSA must hate these developers! Generates passwords that are *as robust as you set them to be*. They can not be any less robust than what you would make up on your own, in most cases the generated passwords will be A LOT better than what you currently use for your valuable log-ins.
Have tested this to the bone using wireshark and other tools, since it's closed source (for the most part). It ends up being the best out there. Simply unbeatable. A life-saver. Best of all: You can't lose your stuff, not even when they stop existing.

Stylish - Custom themes for any website

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Fluently lets me enjoy blinding white pages again by offering me styles that are dark! Never a problem if you carefully pick the well-maintained userstyles.

Those people rating this with one star must be insane or have lost their minds! This is one of the best Add-Ons that ever surfaced for Firefox. Works fluently for many websites, with a huge amount of choice and offerings and no performance hit whatsoever: http://userstyles.org/

Configuration Mania

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It has some minor details and documentation issues to work out, but other than that it replaced a lot of crappy config and tweaking add-ons in one go!

That was years ago, now it has evolved to be a wonderfully sharp-dressed extension. A GUI for the many unreadable about:config settings.
