My Reviews

AniWeather

WeatherForecast not updated Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Unfortunately there's a problem running version 08.23 on FF 7.01.
The forecast is not updated. Both shown calendar days and temperature etc remain unchanged. Installing on Thu 27th October gives: Now, Thu, Fri, Sat - next day Friday it still shows the same.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.23). 

Anti-Aliasing Tuner

instruction replicate Anti-Aliasing Rated 4 out of 5 stars

You do not need this add-on, anyway it is incompatible.with FF 7.

For each of the below:

gfx.font_rendering.cleartype_params.cleartype_level
gfx.font_rendering.cleartype_params.enhanced_contrast
gfx.font_rendering.cleartype_params.gamma
gfx.font_rendering.cleartype_params.pixel_structure
gfx.font_rendering.cleartype_params.rendering_mode

In about:config change the default setting (-1) to 2 (=GDI classic rendering mode, renders text the same as FF 3.6 and Chrome).

On top of that change the line:

gfx.direct2d.disabled to TRUE

and under FF General options, set Hardware Acceleration OFF

Done.

This gives, at least for me, a very clear, peaceful for the eye, not blurred, not distorted font.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (11.06.06.01). 

Markov Dictionary Switcher

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Absolutely best so far! No manual switching any more between dictionaries. Smooth as a whistle.

2nd Classic

best there is but no TB3 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I wait upgrading to TB3 until it is compatible.

Tweak Network

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Still (even with extensions.checkComptability=false)
no positive score. Try www.ard.de and www.zdf.de

Yet- some gains when disabling both Pipelining and Proxy pipelining. Better to just work with about:config.
No need for this "tool"

All in all, a poor tweak.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3). 

Tweak Network

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Useless. Try www.ard.de or www.zdf.de. Takes ages to open- if ever. There are too many sites like this.
Default FF 3.5 settings are superior.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3). 

ThreadVis

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Doesn't do anything. It might be incompatible with
the theme I'm using, Cutebird
(Graphite) 1.2.5.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.595).
