My Reviews

PageDown PageUp Buttons

Scroll faster! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Indispensable. More capable than the "Scroll to..." add-ons. Maybe even save your thumb or index finger from repetitive motion injury. Option to move buttons to same side of screen would be great.

Karma Blocker

Prefer it to AdBlock Plus's filter subscriptions Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Allows me to let more ads through from content sites that I want to support, but still block ads that are too intrusive. I use it with some ABP custom filters, BetterPrivacy, and Self-Destructing Cookies add-ons.

Random Agent Spoofer

Finally, protection against browser fingerprinting! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks, works great! I unchecked "Disable plugin name enumeration", and set FF's about:config variable "plugins.enumerable_names" to "Shockwave,Flash,Java,Silverlight" so these plugins work, though that means changing this variable back to "*" to use any of my less common plugins.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.3.1.1-signed). 

Self-Destructing Cookies

More effective than allowing only session cookies Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Why should you have to restart FF to eliminate unwanted cookies? This should be a standard feature of FF.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.7.1-signed).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

BetterPrivacy-signed

Has removed over 20K LSO's (Cumulative) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

...for me since installing. Thanks!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.68.1-signed). 

Cookie Button in the status bar

Still the best cookie button addon I've found Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Has worked with many new FF versions (and now withFF 34) IF you force compatibility, for example by using the addon "Disable Add-on Compatibility Checks 1.3". I checked all similar addons not long ago but this was still by far the most flexible, and easiest and fastest to use. Thanks!

Mozilla Archive Format, with MHT and Faithful Save

WYSIWYG copy of almost any page Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is invaluable in creating a WYSIWYG copy of almost any page. Particularly useful when pdf of page isn't very readable. Works flawlessly. Thanks!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0.3.1-signed). 

Shelve

I never lose what I've read Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've been using Shelve since 2008 and it still works flawlessly, now on FF 34. It lets me recover whatever I've read, no matter what happens to the original online version. Thanks!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.34.1-signed). 

Distill Web Monitor (formerly AlertBox)

By far the best change alert tool I've found Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Provides flexibility in selecting page content to check for changes, and in alert frequency and method, that I've found in no other web page change alert tool.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.9.20130722.1-signed). 

Screengrab (fix version)

Worked on 17, not on 18.0 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Worked great till I upgraded to 18.0. Hope you can update it again.

From below:
> The copy function works though and the image is loaded in the system clipboard for further use.

I didn't find anything in the clipboard with the released 18.0

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.96.8c.1-signed). 

Youtube MP3 Podcaster

Petition asks YouTube to allow recording Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Can't find any mp3 conversion software or sites that still work. Petition to Google/YouTube to allow recording/conversion can be found on change.org at goo.gl/NZmyZ or by googling 'change.org youtube petition'. 2.5M signatures so far.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.6.2.1-signed). 

Screengrab

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

> Thanks to the video tutorial below this is working in Firefox 8, Linux. Basic info: download the XPI file (right-click install button), extract, open install.rdf in a text editor and change em:maxVersion to 8.0.*

Or disable Add-on compatibility checking and in the extensions manager click Screegrab's Compatibility button and select 'This add-on still works'.

Save Complete and Save Visible portion both work fine for me in FF 8.

MR Tech Toolkit

MR TT works for me in FF5 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It works for the things I use it for. Add-on compatibility checking needs to be disabled, which can be done with Add-on Compatibility Reporter at https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/add-on-compatibility-reporter/ for example.

Slogger

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Me Mine - I use Google Desktop. Search results include the slogger-saved versions of pages and, when they're available, links to the web pages. Works great!
