NoScript Security Suite

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Please, explain in the add-on description why does NoScript now ask for a new permission to "download files and read and modify the browser's download history".

Besides, the new UI quite sucks, but the rules list semi-transparency seems to be what makes the NoScript Settings page sluggish.

NoScript Security Suite

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It used to be a great add-on for improving security of Firefox, until the new Quantum made it obsolete, but Mr. Maone spent a lot of time bloating a terrible user interface with silly animations instead of making something useable.
I won't complain about that, because UI design isn't my strength either, but I cannot give it more than 1 star until he at least implements a feature to reset all the frigging NoScript settings to their defaults (currently, uninstalling and re-installing the add-on won't fix it, and manually removing the settings from about:config doesn't work if you have a Sync profile).
Then, he should take look at what makes the NoScript Settings page soooooooo extremely slooooooow (to the point that Firefox suggests terminating the script execution!) when you have some not-impressive number of site rules (I mean, with the original NoScript I used to have hundreds of URLs white/blacklisted and this never happened).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (10.1.3). 

HTTPS Everywhere

Insecure sites stop working because this add-on works perfectly Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I see a lot of complaints from people claiming that their favorite website stopped working after installing this add-on.
They just don't realize why on the first place did they install this extension? That's because this extension protects your privacy trying to advise connections to unencrypted sites.

If some website doesn't work, ideas probably because it's incorrectly configured (easily hackable), and this extension is trying to protect you by preventing Firefox from sending your data across an unencrypted connection.

People, don't be stupid: don't blame this add-on; blame the sites administrators who should be taking care of their sites security configuration.

HTTPS Everywhere

Doesn't work on Android Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It's a mandatory extension. I install it on every Firefox profile I have on desktop, and I recommend using it to all of my friends, altogether with Request Policy (continued), No Script, and AdBlock Plus.
But it doesn't seem to work on Android.

Not worth. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I am obliged to give it a star. This review system doesn't allow you to give a 0 stars rating.

I found this add-on completely unnecessary, given you can already open link with the middle mouse button, or the wheel, or if you don't have middle mouse button or wheel, both buttons at the same time. On touch pads you can still use the standard primary button while holding Control (on Linux and Windows) or Command (on Mac).


Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It used to work on desktop version of Firefox and Fennec.
It doesn't work on Firefox Mobile for Android, or I can't find the options to switch user agents.

Flash Player funcionando en menos de un minuto Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Si sos usuario de una distribución de Linux que no provee actualizaciones de forma consistente (por ejemplo, BackTrack 5) esta extensión resulta verdaderamente útil.

En mi experiencia personal, estuve un día entero dando vueltas y buscando información acerca de cómo instalar Flash Player en Firefox 10 de 32 bits sobre BackTrack Linux 5.2 de 64 bits (Nota: BackTrack 5.2 está basado en Ubuntu 10).

Luego de probar infinidad de consejos y guías paso a paso, dí de casualidad con un post en un foro que mencionaba esta extensión. No iba a perder nada (comparado con el tiempo que ya había perdido) con probarla.

El resultado: la última versión de Flash Player funcionando en menos de un minuto!.

Ahora, seriamente hablando: no entiendo cómo es que las distintas distribuciones de Linux no pueden incluir un paquete o un script que provea esta funcionalidad.

¡Derecho a mi lista de favoritos!

Groove Shredder

A Must-Have for any Grooveshark user Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It still has a lot of bugs and sometimes behaves inconsistently, but it's a must-have Firefox extension for any Grooveshark power user.

Mycroft Project

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's just another search engine on the search bar, but definitely a MUST HAVE.
This is the first thing I install on every new Firefox profile.

As a side note: a feature I would like to see on the Mycroft Project Website is some way to quickly add a bunch of predefined search engines, or at least grouping them so one does not need to search for and add each one by one.

X-notifier (for Gmail,Hotmail,Yahoo,AOL ...)

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

It's very useful, but it has some serious flaws.
I'm here to provide some constructive criticism, because I want the author to continue it's development, since I found a lot of potential in the very concept of this tool.
But if you want to read about the good things this add-on can already bring to your life, then read the other reviews, there are plenty of those.

After having used this add-on for some time, I can enumerate a series of problems I found.

1st, the add-on keeps signing in and checking for mail even if the Enabled option in the popup menu is unchecked. OK, I know this is a bug, but I'm not reporting it here, I'm just making any potential user aware of this flaw that has been there since some time and seems not to be fixed soon.

2nd, it does not allow to specify a port number for POP3 and IMAP accounts. This is very important, from the basics; if you are using this kind of tool, is because you have lot's of email addresses, and you can't expect all of them to be on plain vanilla servers.

3rd, GMail accounts remain logged-in after having checked for mail, so if you are signed in with one account, and then the add-on checks mail from another Google Account, you would then be signed into the second account, and sometimes this can be very annoying while browsing through several other Google sites. Maybe this is a problem with Google Accounts, but one can expect this to happen.

However, it is very useful if you have to check email from multiple accounts. But I recommend manually enabling and disabling the add-on to perform a batch-check on all accounts, and then disable it to avoid the issues mentioned above.

I give it a 2 stars now, until some of these annoyances disappear.

X-notifier (for Gmail,Hotmail,Yahoo,AOL ...)

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The best thing, is the ability to support many different types of accounts and providers.The worst thing is the GUI of the main configuration screen. I think it still needs some work there.

It lacks option to specify a Port to connect to IMAP or POP3 server, and the option to use SSL/TLS for authentication on those types of accounts.

IE Tab V2 (Enhanced IE Tab)

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Hay algo realmente sospechoso en estas dos extensiones (IE Tab Plus e IE Tab 2).
Ambas culpan a de no poder instalarse correctamente. Y ambas recomiendan instalarse desde sitios ajenos, fuera del control de, donde el personal no pueda auditarlas.

Sinceramente creo que debería hacer algo al respecto.

Adblock Plus

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I think no one out there can be browsing the web without Adblock Plus or No-Script: these are my two primary addons for Firefox; I don't even visit Google without having them both installed.

I suggest: adding a search box to the Preferences window (just like in the Blockable Items window), to allow search and filtering from the Blocking Rules list.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.2). 


I don't like it Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Strikingly spooky such an extension gets so many positive reviews.
While Firefox is acclaimed for being the most secure browser, you add this "iexplorerness"?
