Web Page Fixer +

This add-on will fix many web pages that don't show up correctly. It extracts MS Office-exported html (Office Web Components), and fixes many "Internet Explorer only" pages and other web annoyances. For example, you can use this addon to turn symbol ...

My Reviews

Open in Private Window

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very handy for quickly viewing a page without the current logged-in user cookies.

Heartbleed-Ext

Good idea Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Good idea - it hasn't yet been reviewed by Mozilla, but I looked through the source code and didn't see any major issues - except it does have to look up the heartbleed state from an external service, and it doesn't mark sites that had been affected: http://mashable.com/2014/04/09/heartbleed-bug-websites-affected/

PageDiff

Very handy! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is a very handy addon! Only thing I would recommend would be better documentation and commenting of the source code, and it's not immediately obvious what those arrow buttons are in the top right (maybe they could have title= attribute set to an explanation).

Console

Great addition Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Firefox should have this by default! It's too bad the devtools aren't included on Android Firefox.

The only problem I noticed so far was that sometimes you can't scroll completely to the top, and it's also missing a scratchpad or something to enter commands into the console.

ScrapBook

Nice idea, but has some problems. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I tried to save-webpage complete to save the Stackoverflow winter bash page, but it didn't save the snowfall effect js correctly - and neither does Scrapbook. It would be great if it let you do that correctly. I also wondered where it was saving stuff, it should have a note that they are saved to the Firefox profile directory. An option to save elsewhere would be nice too.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5.8.1-signed). 

Find In Numbers

It was good in older Firefox. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It was good in older Firefox. Please update the maxversion so it won't install in the latest Firefox, it breaks the find function completely.

Windows NT Chart

Handy, unobtrusive, yet incomplete Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I guess this could be handy, but why not have listing of what Linux distros have what kernel versions, as well? Why does it only give Windows info (and only small table, at that), nothing about Mac/Ubuntu?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.rev67.1-signed). 

Edit Source

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Good idea, but hasn't been working in newer Firefox due to bug: https://github.com/a2sheppy/Edit-Source/issues/2

If anyone can fix that, it sound like a handy tool.

Not a Developer

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Pros: It works, not a bad idea, it's even restartless.
Cons: Really breaks the browser: even if user is not a developer, it is important for a technician to tell the user to Ctrl+Shift+K (to see current web page console) and provide the javascript error they get. Why does this take away that shortcut?

Find In Numbers

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Awesome and useful plugin! Only problem is, it can be a little slow on large pages (could web-worker threads help?), and it doesn't yet work in Firefox 25 beta.

XML Developer Toolbar

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Kind of basic, has some interesting features, but many are just links to web services. Looks like it hasn't been updated recently, and its views menu doesn't seem to be working (Firefox 23).

Developer Tools - toolbar button

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Handy! Opens Developer tools, Console2, and view-source in a handy menu.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.5.1-signed). 

Html Validator

Useful! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very handy to have in the view-source!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.5.1.1-signed). 

Developer Assistant

Nice addon, not supported anymore though? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Handy addon. It's unfortunate that it will no longer build addon installer files in the latest Firefox. Looks like it was updated 2011.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.0.20110927.1-signed). 

Firepicker

Useful Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Useful feature, I wish it were compatible with the builtin Firefox DevTool though.

This user has a previous review of this add-on.

FireQuery

Not bad Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Handy if you like working with jQuery. Doesn't seem to work with Firefox DevTools though. Please make it compatible with the DevTools too, it seems to be much faster and not as clunky as Firebug.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.1-signed). 

Walnut for Firefox

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Glad to see this working with the latest Firefox!
Unfortunately it seems to remove the Firefox Devtools Inspector's in-page selector's arrow though.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.16). 

Firediff

Useful Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Useful plugin. It would be neat to be able to filter only changes that were made from Firebug.

The only major problem I can see with this plugin is that it doesn't work with the built in Firefox devtools. I rarely use Firebug anymore, since having it installed and active at all makes the browser freeze up after awhile.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.0.1-signed). 

Firebug

It was my favorite... may be replaced by Firefox DevTools in the future though. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

For years this was one of my favorites. Unfortunately recently, especially in the Firefox 21 beta, it often makes the browser extremely slow. With the recent improvements to the built-in Firefox inspector and debugger, it seems this could become obsolete in the near future. That would be sad, since it was a great addon for so long, and has many great plugins that can work within it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.11.2.1-signed). 

Firepicker

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A color picker in the inspector, great! It would be awesome if it had integrated page color picker and history of picked colors in the color picker similar to Opera browser.
