My Reviews

Click-to-Play Manager

Dysfunctional on Firefox for Android Rated 1 out of 5 stars

about:ctp looks completely borked.
I can tap on the add domain button (barely because it's mostly out of the screen and I can't zoom) but that's about it.
It's impossible to successfully add the typed domain. The button always stays dimmed.
If you close the keyboard you can't get it back again no matter how much you tap the input field.
You can't cancel the operation.
You can't even navigate away from the page.
You can't even load another about: page until you restart firefox

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4). 

Load Tabs Progressively Fixed

Excellent! I wanted something like this for a while Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I wanted something like this for a while.
Works for opened bookmark folder. Multiple history/bookmark items. Page links one-by-one or several at once via TMP.

One weakness I noticed is that if I close one of the loading tabs a new one doesn't start loading until one of the loading ones finishes.

Change Profile's Window Icons

Great, but I have one issue Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I use this mainly to easily tell profiles apart when I'm testing. Particularly different unstable versions of firefox.
This usage is impaired because something's wrong with the addon's signatures.
It shows ups withe version "1.5.2.1-signed", but it actually the signature check fails and I get a warning. It also gets disabled in ff43 (beta at the moment) and up.

Disable HTML5 Fullscreen Alert

Excellent! Now it works Rated 5 out of 5 stars

With the latest update it works with firefox's new warning which can't be disabled from about:config since ff42

Revert Keyword Column

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Cool. it comes this feature comes handy sometimes. Naturally they removed it...

bug669129

Fixes this hated annoyance. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works fine even in current nightly. Version number should be bumped. Otherwise average addon users won't be able to install it, since AMO stupidly disables the download buttons.

TabSubmit Basic

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent. Now we don't have to go without this feature with multi-process Firefox.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.1.1-signed.1-signed). 

Places' Tooltips

Needs update. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It's been ages since it was updated and it only works when disabling compatibility.
Even worse that one part of the addon was completely broken. It can't show bookmark keywords and shows a very annoying error dialog whenever I hover over a bookmark item.

Dictionary Switcher

It causes the content process to crash Rated 1 out of 5 stars

When I type in a text field it causes the content process to crash when I type in textfields when electrolysis is enabled.
So I guess it's incompatible with e10s and needs an update otherwise it causes constant crashes.
It also fails to switch dictionaries on ever more pages.

Always on Top

It works okay. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

However sometimes the icon and the state it shows gets messed up. Particularly when break of a tab to create a new window.
I also whish it was restartless I scarcely need it so I could just enable it on demand.

Dictionary Switcher

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This desperately needs an update for some (I guess) never kind of textfields. For example the youtube (g+) comments.
Switching simply isn't performed. The last used dictionary - in a textfield where this addon works - will be the one used.

Linkificator

Not quite as good as Text Link. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I gave this a try when Text Link stopped functioning on nightly. It works but often doesn't linkify the whole url only a part of it which results in junk. There were numerous occasions. It seemed to me that it tends to ignore both the front and the end of an url in these cases. The one example I remember is when it ignored everything before "google" in a "code.google.com" url.

Focus Regainer

Pretty much useless now. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This addon was always a little troubled. some flash videos failed to load when enabled. Dailymotion, this website: http://toni.org/a3d/
But now after upgrading to FF34 youtube videos don't load either. And since that's mainly where I use flash which is probably true to most FF users I can't have it enabled. Sad, because it's function was greatly desired.

Edit: Cool. Even the websites that were alway broken by this addon work now.

MPC-YT

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

It doesn't work at all on my default profile, it works with a new profile.
Nothing happens when I click on the menu item.
On the new profile the menu-item only appeared on the search page, but no the video page.
Only plays up to 720p streams, higher res streams are ignored.
It hangs mpc-be when I try to load a vevo video.

MPC-HC/MPC-BE can play dash AV: http://www.svp-team.com/wiki/SVPtube#YouTube_and_1080p
I can verify that it works.

VLC Youtube Shortcut

Good, but missing resolutions. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It works smoothly, but only plays up to 720p quality.
It would be perfect if it could handle sending the dash A/V streams to VLC so that we could always enjoy the best quality.

Element Inspector

It's great but there are issues post australis (ff29+) Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It's really convenient addon. But there are apparently some issues arise when using with the built in element inspector. The selection gets lost all the time and the element's code is not highlighted or scrolled to. It works flawlessly in FF24

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.0.6.1-signed). 

Suspend Tab

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I like to have tabs opened in the background opened unloaded and leaving the rest alone.
But with this I can only achieve it if I have everything immediately unloaded.
In my opinion it's a missing feature compared to similar addons.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.2014050201.1-signed). 

Load Tab on select

Good, but there's a significant issue. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Links containing anchors don't load properly. The page isn't navigated to the anchor.
This is big problem because it's very common. Especially with forum topics where the links should take me to the newest message. (With this enabled they don't)
Also it when I try to open multiple tabs at once. eg: Middle clicking on a bookmark folder. Only the first tab is opened.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1). 

Menu Wizard

Great! Multiselect missing. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Finally a replacement for menueditor. It has more functionality like adding folders, renaming deselecting separators.
On the other hand the missing multiselect feature makes it rather cumbersome and time consuming to use. Because you can't move related menu items simultaneously. Or (un)check them.
Some ability to search the items there can be an awful lot of them, especially with a number of addons. The browser's page search feature doesn't work on the settings tab.
