My Reviews

URL UnMangler

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Old. See QuietURL for a more capable addon that works on FFox 3.5

Nightly Tester Tools

Must-have, great title bar options Rated 5 out of 5 stars

One of the first addons I always install.
I edited the maxversion in the RDF so I could install this for all user accounts.
Please add a titlebar variable showing the number of open tabs.
Thanks!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.2). 

TabCounter

Stats are great, but it is rather wide Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Excellent addon; thanks!
I would like to see also a count of windows.
Disables Tab Counter addon (toolbar tab count).
If you could please make the icon optional, we could save some space.
I also like stig's idea for a window list.

Open Tab Count

Very good! compact. Please add window count Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I always use it. Please add # of windows: tab/tot/wins.
Thanks!

ErrorZilla Plus

Please add auto Retry for timeout only Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I often get timeouts, half of them on an image or iframe. I always want to retry before using your excellent cache options. TryAgain lacks (and blocks) the cache options, and it retries non-timeouts (proxy rejects, 404, etc). Please add a retry count setting that only retries timeouts.

NoScript Security Suite

The first add-on I always add. Must have. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

If you check "https only" in the options, you will not be
able to enable scripts on non-https sites.
Be sure to look at the whitelists that come with it, see if you agree.
Thanks for a great Add-on!

FireFoxMenuButtons

Sad to see it aged - It was great Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Please update it to FF3.1.
I used it with ToolbarButtons; now gladly TBB has grown and replaces most of this. I still miss FFMB.

Glazoom

Must have! new spin buttons too small Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I still use v.24 with full size +/- buttons - it gets 4.5 stars. It should be built-in!
I use this with Default Full Zoom Level because I need to zoom some tabs by font, others by full zoom. Better together, still not perfect.
Please add a separate second spinner so we can set both for the same tab. Thanks!

InFormEnter

Needs to use textbox name Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Nice until you have lots of entries.
Please do a power user version - remember textbox name on saves, show entries that match that textbox name first.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.5.5). 

FoxReplace

Very useful Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very nice - good to shorten page titles for tabs.
One small limitation: it won't add a space after the replace text.
It would be nice to edit a page title without slowly searching the whole very long page.
Hopefully tracemonkey will speed this up.

UrlbarExt

Great but needs work Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Would be 5 stars if customizing quick tag list worked - only rarely is an added tag added - usually [label] is added...
The quick tag list becomes useless if you have many tags - All tags menu should not use scrolling - far too slow - faster to type tags.
Submenus by letter would help.

Personal Menu (Personal Firefox Button)

version 4.1.2 (experimental) is great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

New version fixes hiding bug, makes this fabulous.
Just remember when you customize the personal menu to add "edit this menu" even tho it is already there...

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.1.2). 

All-in-One Sidebar

Can't set icon size per toolbar Rated 4 out of 5 stars

A top-10, always-installed extension that should come with ffox - it isn't my firefox without it.
New version no longer has my favorite feature: set icon size per toolbar. Old version was 5 stars (since I can't give 6)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.8). 

Tab Kit

Broke the back button history dropdown Rated 3 out of 5 stars

A full-featured addon I hope will be fixed soon.
If you open a second window, the back button history dropdown becomes blank! (posted on forum) - uninstalled.
Grouping is confusing (I prefer Tree Style Tabs' autoindent child tabs).
Tab coloring is nice when it works.

Print Hint

Use print preview when it fails Rated 3 out of 5 stars

5 stars if it didn't go to other websites sometimes.
I have never seen a print version on a different website - It should know that and just say no print version.

URL Alias

Nice but needs work Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It would not save anything until I entered one alias in the prefs window, then it worked fine.
(I copied from examples, pasted to config)
Read the help examples - very good!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.0). 

MenuX

Use toolbar buttons - this is too old Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Toolbar buttons has most of these buttons, works in Ffox3

Fasterfox

Glad to have it! Default is too aggressive Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Be sure to set it back to optimized OR custom - default Turbo setting hammers servers AND jacks up your memory usage.
Good to have it back - it was missed!
A timer per tab would be nice - change tabs and no telling which it is timing.

Page Hacker

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Great Idea. How about a kid-friendly theme?

Bookmark Permissions

Great Idea! Incomplete Rated 3 out of 5 stars

A great concept, but it needs to work in the same tab.
Library bug: permission buttons vanish always.
Openbook disables the permission buttons - it is a must-have.
I eagerly await an update that works with at least ex_bookmark_properties, 2 pane bookmarks, and openbook.
