My Reviews

Classic Theme Restorer (Customize UI)

NEW FEATURE: With Sync, the settings used with this addon should automatically sync to another Firefox installation that I use on another computer. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

When I use Sync to get my various addons and so on from my normal computer at home to a second computer that I use at work, I do not get the settings that I use for this particular addon synched too on my second computer, only the addon installed. That would be great if you could put an option to just do that.
As a matter of fact, I saw with another addon exactly this feature. With this other addon, when I do Tools, Addons, and see the extensions tab, I press the options button for this other addon and I see the following option made available:
"Add a Sync (name of this other addon) settings".
I then have the possibility to tick this option. This way, when I use Sync, it will not only allow me to get this addon installed automatically on my second computer but it will also install, sync automatically on my second computer at work the settings that I use for this particular addon on my first computer at home.
This other addon should even have added a second way to select this particular feature ("Add a Sync (name of this other addon) settings") by adding it also to the following window when I do Tools, name of this other addon, and then a pop up window shows up with all the options available.

Many thanks to the developer for this excellent addon.

New Tab Tools

ONE GREAT NEW FEATURE NEEDED. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The possibility to have automatically selected background image from a set of images that are located in a particular folder at a determined interval of time.
Therefore, the image background of the new tab would automatically change every x minutes, and/or x hours, and/or x days from the background images stored in a particular folder.
That would definitively be really great.

Many thanks for this great addon. It is really useful to me.

QuickJS

Your addon messes up with a few sites using Javascript. For this reason alone, I am forced to stop using it! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Using Firefox 37, at the page http://www.dpreview.com/challenges/Entry.aspx?ID=897600&utm_campaign=internal-link&utm_source=challenges-widget&utm_medium=image&ref=challenges-widget , click on the slideshow button and I could not see anything when you addon was installed, it was simply messing up with this site. When I removed your addon, I could see the slideshow perfectly well!

For this reason alone, it is not possible for me to carry on using your addon.

Video DownloadHelper

It does not download videos on youtube during March 2015! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

On 03/14/2015, using version 4.9.24 of Video DownloadHelper, the two videos on youtube I tried to download, it did not download them!

Here are the links:
---"Incredible Moment 7 WEEK OLD Baby Says HELLO - YouTube" at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7b4P-0MiaRM
---"I Will Always Love You - Whitney Houston Cover by Jade Burke - YouTube" at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hsN8jDXpu7E

I will be forced to find a new addon if it is not solved. Thanks to correct this problem.

New Tab Tools

ONE GREAT SUGGESTED IMPROVEMENT. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Allow the user of this addon to have the background image used for a new tab to rotate at various intervals [every x minutes, or every x hour(s), or every x day(s) ] with other images that would be located in a particular folder of images. It would allow the background image for the new tab to vary with time automatically instead of having to change the background image manually.

Thanks to the developer of this addon, it is really a nice addon.

New Tab Tools

ONE BIG PROBLEM: THIS ADDON CANNOT BE REMOVED!! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

One problem:
This addon cannot be removed!!
When you remove it, you still see the same number of tiles that you chose with this addon!
Even when you select disable for this addon, you still see the same number of tiles that you have selected with this addon!

Could you solve this BIG problem whenever possible. Thanks.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (28).

Lightweight Themes Manager

GOOD START BUT IT NEEDS SEVERAL IMPROVEMENTS. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

To the developer,

Thanks you for this addon. I would like to suggest the following improvements.

1) Basically, add the features of Persona Switcher at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/thunderbird/addon/personaswitcher/ that allows the user to automatically rotate through all of his personas on a time interval that he selects.
It is this important feature that would really complement and improve your addon a lot. At least for those who do not use Personas Plus that I assume already has this feature to rotate through a set of personas.
Thanks to consider this suggestion.

2) Add a counter of the number of personas currently used. Say at the top of the page for this addon.

3) When no personas have been added, it does not show the default page where it would list the default persona. You could add such a default page.
You could also add a refresh button to the default page listing the personas, as when you add a new persona, it does not refresh the default page of this addon to show the newly added persona and I have to press the the "reload current page" to see the new persona that I have just added.

4) By the way, I do not have installed Personas Plus for several very good reasons and I will not change my mind on this matter in the future.
I assume Personas Plus might already provide this feature of rotating through a set of personas. If it is the case, you could still add this feature to this addon for those who do not use Personas Plus.

Thanks to consider these suggestions to improve this addon further. Thanks to the developer to provide this addon that is really very useful to save the personas.

SmartVideo For YouTube

THIS ADDON RENDERS GOOGLE MAPS COMPLETELY USELESS, DEAD!! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

To the developer,

I discovered that it was your addon that made my Google maps completely dead: there is no zoom in or out, I cannot move the map with the cursor, etc.

Could you solve this HUGE BUG. Thanks.

Thanks for this addon but this bug needs to be corrected.

New Tab Wallpapers

One problem with Firefox 31. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

With Firefox 31 (adding the search field at the top of the new tab), on the new tab, I have an image that I use with this addon that shows up fine except at the bottom where the bottom part just below the last three tiles at the bottom, this bottom part is a white horizontal band instead of being filled with the rest of the image that I use.

I tried every option available for Size, Position and Repeat but it does not change anything and I still have the white horizontal band at the bottom instead of being filled with the image that I use.

Thanks to update your addon to rectify this issue.

Thanks for this awesome great addon to the developer.

Edit Bookmark Plus

Problem when opening the bookmarks window. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

When I do Bookmarks, Bookmark This Page, sometimes the bookmarks window opens wrongly to the left side of the Firefox browser instead of to the right side, preventing me from seeing most of the bookmarks window that is on the left.
To solve this problem, I close the bookmarks window and I restart it and usually it opens correctly to the right the next time I open this bookmarks window doing Bookmarks, Bookmark This Page.

Thanks for this great addon to the developer.

Classic Theme Restorer (Customize UI)

INDISPENSABLE ADDON to customize the interface back to normal (pre- Firefox 29)! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

After I installed this addon, my previous interface (pre-Firefox 29) was nearly back to normal. I just had to make a few changes and it was basically done very quickly.

I even improved further my interface with this addon compared to my previous interface.

I also have personas that rotate with the addon Personas Switcher and so far I have not experienced a single problem while using this addon.

What have they been smoking lately at Mozilla with this Firefox 29 Australis idiotic interface?!

The only thing I could not find was the button called "Display the progress of ongoing downloads" that is represented by a dotted circle.

Many thanks to the developer.

Answer to Aris, the great developer of this addon:
Concerning this button called "Display the progress of ongoing downloads" that is represented by a dotted circle, I do not know if it is gone for a long time but I had it on my FF26 installation.
It was not really important at all, just giving some feedback when there was some activity on my current web page.
Not to have this button is no big deal at all, as I was not looking at it much.
Again, Aris, many thanks for this addon, you saved me from this hard-to-digest new Australis nightmarish interface!!

Edit Bookmark Plus

BIG RESIZING ISSUES. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

BIG PROBLEM IN FIREFOX (currently I use FF29).
When the bookmarks button is put at the left of the browser window using Customize, your addon does not expand to the right, cutting its expansion at the right of the vertical line where the bookmarks button is located. The small resize triangle at the bottom left does not help correct this problem.

Solution:
1) add a first small resize triangle at the right that will allow me to expand to the right without changing the left.
2) add a second small resize triangle at the middle and bottom to allow the resizing vertically.
Thanks to correct this big problem.

Many thanks for this addon that is indispensable.

Video DownloadHelper

Could you add the file size in brackets next to the file type? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I think it would be useful to have the file size information clearly shown next to the type of file that is downloadable. Thanks to consider this extra feature.

New Tab Wallpapers

A problem with selecting the tiles to be pinned. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have this problem for the nine tiles that can be pinned on the new tab when I open a new tab. I have pinned six and it remains two to pin. I cycle through the web pages on one of the two unpinned tiles and reach the time where there is no more web page available to select. I assume that I just have to wait to open more web pages and these web pages will appear as options for the two unpinned tiles but it is not the case and I do not see anymore web pages available to pin for my remaining two unpinned tiles.Currently we have two tabs, Local image and web image.

To solve this issue, you could add another tab with six fields to enter the url of the web pages we want to see as default tiles when we open a new tab. And with the option to have them pinned right away if we want, otherwise these selected web pages will not stay.This way, it would solve this issue.Many thanks for your great addon.

Keep adding a few new good features (12 and 15 tiles instead of 9; and the to do features that you wrote on your description).

FEBE

SEVERAL BUGS! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

When I did a first backup (Full profile) (FEBE, Perform backup), it dit it (previously I had selected various options for the backup). So the first backup had a particular size (126 MB for mine). Then, a few seconds after the first backup, I did a new second backup and the size of it is completely different (6 MB)!!!! Basically, the addon does not seem to have saved fully the second backup!!! There is something very wrong with your addon!
BUT...
What I noticed later on is that the second backed up over time. In other words, I did the full backup the second time but it was not done right away, it showed the page indicating that the backup had been done but it was not yet done fully!! And that is where the problem, the BUG is. Sometimes, it does the full backup later on BUT sometimes it does NOT!!

I do have around 90 tabs opened and quite a few addons but I also have a quad core Intel processor and 8 GB of RAM!! So, there should not be any problems doing the backup.

More, all the plugins (Tools, Addons, Plugins tab at the left) are not part of the full profile. In my test, only one plugin was backed up but I have more than 10 plugins listed that were not backed up.

In summary:
1) a great addon but it must be 100% reliable when you do a backup (full profile or else).
2) More, I believe the full list of plugins should also be backed up if it is possible (not sure on this matter if it is possible with your addon to accomplish this second point).

Many thanks to the developer for this addon.
