My Reviews

Dark Background and Light Text

Best dark themer Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Definitely one of the best to make every page dark. Even most Firefox windows/settings will be dark! Works everywhere. 4/5 stars just because very rarely an image won't show up and be lost in the black, like the rating stars for this rating! Oops! Still love it anyway. Colors seem more vivid than other Add Ons

Ant Video Downloader

best video download tool Rated 5 out of 5 stars

No hassle, no weird settings, no ads or junk. This thing just works. Click it and it downloads the video or music. I have never seen a site or page this does not work on. A required Add On for Firefox!

Sendroid

easy sending to Android Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Easy sending of links, text, images to Android phone. Great replacement for Chrome2Phone.

Double-click Image Downloader

Works great Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I use the single click download. Works great. Hover mouse over an image and a large download button appears. I like the "toast" message too it shows a thumbnail and success message as a Firefox notification in bottom right of the screen. Good for confirmation. Great Add On!

Dark Background and Light Text

tumblr Downloader Professional

same problem as user below. loads all images in the table but will not save them to hard drive

Ant Video Downloader

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works flawlessly. More simple than VideoDownloadHelper and I've never seen a video that it couldn't download. One click and DONE.

Searchonymous

great but one thing Rated 4 out of 5 stars

One issue- URL bar searches automatically use my local google domain. My settings to "Use Google.com" get blocked so it always defaults to my local country domain. But I prefer to use google.com. Any way to fix this?

Image Toolbar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

AMAZING!
***note to new users:
clicking "save" on the image will by default open the "save as..." dialog box but you can bypass this & have it automatically download by choosing the option in the addon's preferences

Color toggle

lightweight, simple, perfect Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Does exactly what I want. One click (or one hotkey combo) and I'm in night mode. Click again, back to normal. Page response is immediate. Great little add on, I use this multiple times a day.

User Agent Overrider

does what it says Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Color toggle

just what i was looking for Rated 5 out of 5 stars

i wanted a SIMPLE, LIGHTWEIGHT, and SNAPPY way of switching between "normal" web view and a dark "night time" style view. 1 click does it! nice job.

Dark Backgrounds Switcher

try Color toggle instead Rated 3 out of 5 stars

after trying it out and loving it, decided it has some drawbacks. i hate to click twice to go back to normal view. i dont like an entry in my right-click context menu. not bad but prefer "color-toggle" add on now. does the same thing as this one but seems better.

Color That Site!

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

To be fair developer does say "On complex sites with many background images this add-on might need much memory while editing."

but trying this on Facebook left Firefox hanging for 5 minutes straight before i just forced quit it. this thing will eat up memory and leave your firefox session unresponsive.

if you are just looking to change the colors of sites you visit, try other add-ons or things like Stylish. this add-on is for harddcore web developers only.

RightToClick

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

does what it says.
let's me highlight text or right-click images/video on sites that forbid it. no need to reload the page, just click RightToClick button, wait a few seconds till the icon animation finishes, and enjoy!

gtranslate

Perfect, simple. lightweight, easy. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

i have been using this add-on for a long time, never any problems. a few hiccups with google's server-side a couple times but developer rapidly patched it in a day or 2. strongly recommend this.hint: if you select a big block of text to translate, the pop-up menu will seem to show just the first line. hover mouse over that first line and you'll get a big pop-up showing the whole text block's translation.

FoxToPhone

works great Rated 5 out of 5 stars

no problems, does what it says.

if you are seeing the "link sent to phone" message but not receiving it on the phone, logout of Fox2Phone then relink phone's Chrome2Phone app with Fox2Phone. had to do that once, after that no issues.

thanks developer for bringing this function to firefox. now i can avoid chrome for awhile more!

Adblock Edge

does what it says Rated 4 out of 5 stars

i was using AdBlock Lite, but when it stopped being supported i came here (seems to be same developer). works well for me, seems lighter weight than official AdBlock.If you are having memory issues, reduce your adblock subscriptions. i manually added EasyList entries only for the sites i visit most, and its much smoother/faster now.
