My Reviews

Disconnect

A useful tool, but very annoying self-promotion. Will uninstall Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I see here many people objecting to the way Disconnect opens a new tab in your browser, every time you launch the browser. And I see here frequent responses from the developer that, actually, say nothing.

Otherwise, it's ok.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.15.3.1-signed.1-signed). 

Ghostery

Ghostery has a fatal flaw if you want privacy... Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Although excellent in concept, if you delete cookies at the end of your browsing session, Ghostery loses record of *all* the tracking you want to block. Which I describe as a fatal flaw, because cookie removal is one of the basic things that you would expect a privacy-conscious user to do.

Seems like a bizarre thing for the devs to miss. I mean, who else would use Ghostery?

Otherwise, if you don't clear your cookies, Ghostery is an excellent tool that seems to do everything it promises, quickly and tidily.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (7.1.1.5). 

Status-4-Evar

Activated, but no status text Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Firstly: Thank you. I admire and appreciate the work of contributors to my favourite browser.

I've installed your add-on, activated it, and checked that I've chosen to display the hovered link in the status bar. But it doesn't display. The other items that had been shown at the bottom of the browser window (leet key, showip, no script and adblock+ (disabled)) show up happily, but---
* now they are aligned to the left hand side of the status bar
* and the hovered link doesn't appear, as I mentioned.

Your suggestions are welcome.

May I also suggest that the add-on, when installed, is activated by default? After all, I've chosen to download it because I want links displayed in the status bar. (It was poor thinking of the developers to remove it without allowing a roll-back.)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2010.10.20.02).
