My Reviews

Red Cats (green flavor)

Yay, the red cats are back! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Red Cats Green Flavor has always been my favorite Firefox theme (& I love its Blue Flavor cousin too)! My lazy tuxedo & lazy tabby cats love it too.

Now works with Firefox 24, & looks like it's good to go for the next couple of upgrades too — "Full compatibility with Firefox 27.0a1." I realized I'd been using this great theme for years without ever fully showing my thanks, so I just thanks to the developer Red_Fat_Lazy_Cat by sending a Paypal donation. Thanks Red Cat!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.6.2). 

LinkChecker

Fast, intuitive, effective Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks for this excellent little tool. I found this app by way of Deep Trawl's comparison of their product with yours <http://www.deeptrawl.com/linkchecker-comparison.htm>. Their app is great for deep checking of an entire site, but for quick checking of specific pages I don't think LinkChecker can be beat. It will become a permanent tool in my toolchest so long as you keep it alive. And so I just donated $10 for that cause.

PDF Viewer

Default PDF reader can be replaced with a reader that works Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The built-in PDF viewer based on this plug-in is every bit as bad as these other reviewers have said. It displays files inaccurately, is wildly off at navigating to bookmarked pages when the bookmark is selected, etc. I'm astounded that in the latest updates to Firefox (v19), that Mozilla has made this completely substandard viewer the default.The good news: there's a way out. Mozilla has brief, easy, and helpful instructions for changing to a viewer that works. Adobe's plug-in, for example, causes PDFs to display as cleanly and accurately as they would on your desktop using Adobe's free Acrobat Reader.

For instructions, search Mozilla's website for the article "How to disable the built-in PDF viewer and use another viewer."
