PrivacyFox

missing info... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

"A list of all the affected preferences can be found on the homepage"

which is where?

no support link?

also see HTTP UserAgent cleaner

update: thanks for providing this info :)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.1-signed.1-signed). 

NewsFox

good reader, but it needs some work Rated 4 out of 5 stars

from YouTube:
"To get an RSS feed of a single channel’s uploads, paste the channel URL into your RSS reader."
this does not work in NewsFox, however the browser does not always discover the feed either so this may not be a NF issue

as others have requested, a search function is needed - the "keyword" option is very limited and not a suitable alternative

as other have noticed, only one change at a time can be made to some of the options (noticed when setting sort options), after which you have to re-open the options UI to make another change - setting more than one change results in all but the first one (or last, i forget) being lost

the context menu option to hide the feed toolbar is not remembered across sessions - also seems reasonable to combine the feed and main toolbars perhaps to save space???

if you delete a feed from a folder other than the default 'feed' folder, the feed may not be deleted from the global feeds, even if it is not used in any other folder/category - since there is an option to set the cats/folders that a feed appears in, as well as a delete prompt, it should be deleted globally when deleting it ... after all, "delete" means "delete", not remove from the selected cat/folder

FireFTP

not working well in FF 37 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

this extension has some serious problems with FF 37 - many file icons don't show until they are moused over - CPU is pegged when scrolling through directories with lots of files - interface (and FF) becomes non-responsive when scrolling through directories with lots of files

tested with a clean profile
FFTP 2.0.23
FF 37 - all
Win 7

WebFilter Pro - The web content filtering addon!

DO NOT INSTALL BEFORE READING THE "PRIVACY" POLICY Rated 1 out of 5 stars

this add-on collects certain data from its users

if you want a really content blocker, search for uBlock

Menu Editor II

THIS EXTENSION IS OBSOLETE Rated 1 out of 5 stars

hard to believe it is being listed on the "up and coming" list

search for "menu wizard" instead

µBlock

the best content blocker for Firefox, bar none Rated 5 out of 5 stars

i really like this extension - uBlock is much more powerful and efficient than Adblock Plus/Edge/etc.

@MooTaters - you need to read the wiki to learn how to use uB - you'll find the link on the About tab of the config UI

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.1.0.1-signed). 

CS Lite Mod

false sense of privacy preservation Rated 2 out of 5 stars

don't mean to pick on this developer in particular, but cookies are only a part -- a small part -- of overall privacy protection

any extension that deals with cookies should also handle local and session storage and probably LSOs as well

Disable clipboard manipulations

needs a white-list Rated 3 out of 5 stars

even though this functionality is built-in, i would like to set it to false globally, then allow on a per-domain basis - need a white-list to do this though

FireFTP

file-type icons not displaying Rated 4 out of 5 stars

since approx. the time i updated to ff 36, the file type icons are not displayed in either the local or remote view until the files in the lists are moused-over
win 7
ff 36.0.1
fftp 2.0.22

Shim Storage

in regard to last comment... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

if the ext. relies on dom.storage.enabled being set to false, then it should probably set this upon install and re-check at every start-up

also, if it breaks Extension Defender, i would wonder if it would break other chrome addresses?

Shim Storage

breaks Extension Defender Rated 4 out of 5 stars

no support site and no support email? hmmm...

setting dom.storage.enabled = false breaks the Extension Defender add-on

Preferences Monitor

not happy about bundled 3rd party ext. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

eCleaner should not be included by default - at the very least it should be an optional install

luckily it looks like a benign extension, otherwise i'd really be po'd :)

liking PM though - good work

FireFTP

console warning Rated 4 out of 5 stars

window._content is deprecated. Please use window.content instead. fireftpOverlay.js:119:0

BetterStop

console warning Rated 4 out of 5 stars

mutating the [[Prototype]] of an object will cause your code to run very slowly; instead create the object with the correct initial [[Prototype]] value using Object.create preferences.jsm:467:0

OmniSidebar

excellent! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

since the font size for the add-on panel was increased in 1.5.1b2, i have no issues with this add-on

i've used AiOS for a long time and it is also very good, but i much prefer the sidebar switch in Omni since it does not use any space of the document width

Abduction! - Webpage Screenshots Screen Capture

ADWARE - read their "privacy" policy Rated 1 out of 5 stars

"We make protecting privacy a priority by being clear about what information we collect and how we will use the information to show relevant ads. ..."

Extension Defender

should also warn when viewing add-on page Rated 4 out of 5 stars

should also warn when viewing add-on page on addons.mozilla.org

Policeman

I LOVE YOU MAN! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

a great alternative to the mostly abandoned Request Policy!

great work!
well thought out
fairly easy to use

NewsFox

i agree with others - i'm starting to like it less as time goes by Rated 3 out of 5 stars

it slows the FF UI even with only 2 threads set and kills it with anything much more over 2

development seems to have all but ceased

after years, there is STILL no option to hide the feed tool-bar and REMEMBER ITS STATE across sessions!

Newsfox is not available in the FF feed subscribe menu on newer version of FF - what's with that?

NewsFox

best feed reader for FF, but it doesn't save settings properly Rated 5 out of 5 stars

hands-down the best news reader for firefox - i like everything about it, except that it does really make the browser unresponsive when refreshing, perhaps even more so with more than 2 threads set

the only little niggle i have with it is that, when changing multiple settings, it appears only the first change is saved, so you have to re-enter the options UI for each change

i noticed this particularly when changing the global and group sort options
