My Reviews

Google Feature Search

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This offers nothing I need, so I uninstall.

I would like to, for example, search pages written only in English.

Old Location Bar

Cool Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I use these options:
- Choose if Go button always displays or not..
- Choose if RSS Feed button displays or not.
- Choose if Bookmark Star button displays or not.
- Remove Old Location Bar from the "Tools" menu.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.6.1-signed). 

UrlbarExt

Short URL and Search Site Rated 4 out of 5 stars

"Extends the LOCATION BAR with set of commands to (Shorten URL's, Search site)"

I use these two features. Search site is useful for www.tamroshop.fi, amazon, ebay... Those have lousy search.

I removed some unnecessary buttons in UrlBarExt / Options / Stylish:
/* Hide the RSS icon */
/* Always hide the star icon */
If that will stop working, I can still use:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/old-location-bar/

Highlight Textboxes Like Google Chrome (Orange)

Google Chrome rules. Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This addon seems to slow down typing, so I uninstall.

GoogleEnhancer

Would be great after some fine-tuning! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Keep up the good work!

However, I decided to UNINSTALL until some features are improved:
"auto-focus Google search box if typing anywhere on a search results page"
I would still like to use "arrow down", "arrow up" and "page down" to move down/up on search results, like WITHOUT this addon. So I can not turn this "AUTO-FOCUS" on.

After pressing ENTER to search, this addon forgets my language setting I have selected on the left-hand-side. At least when I use www.google.fi

Add to Search Bar

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Cool. I add ebay and Amazon.

Google Shortcuts - All Google Services at a glance

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Nice: "you decide which services should be available for you as buttons."

Please, check that this works properly with www.google.fi

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.7.1.1-signed). 

Bypass.rd.to V 0.6

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I use this AND BugMeNot.
"Unlike it's competitors, bypass.rd.to does not block websites from their list".

Print Edit

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

FEATURE REQUEST:
I would like AUTOMATIC daily printing of certain web pages, especially WEATHER pages at 6 a.m.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.4.1-signed). 

Xmarks Sync

Reading bookmarks with IE, Chorme and iPhone from a server. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Good for reading bookmarks with IE, Chorme and iPhone from a server.

If you know a better alternative for that, let us know!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.0.2.1-signed). 

Leet Key

Too complicated to use Rated 2 out of 5 stars

In only need uppercase / lowercase, this does that.

However, this is much too complicated addon for that purpose and this reserves many shortcut keys which I need for other addons. So in UNINSTALLED.

FEATURE REQUEST:
With MS Word 2003, Shift-F3 changes case. Could you please implement that shortcut key to this addon? And make it possible to easily switch-off all other shortcuts.

LeechBlock

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

FEATURE REQUEST:
Allow me browsing offline.
"File / Work Offline"
Then I can read pages I have already visited.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.2.1-signed).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Clippings

Shortcut key CHANGE or DISABLE? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Please, tell me how can I disable or change this shortcut key:
Alt-Ctrl-V.

I REALLY need this shortcut key for addon "Link Visitor 3". I configured with "KeyConfig" addon Alt-Ctrl-V for "Link Visitor 3", for "mark selected links visited", but KeyConfig does not let me disable this shortcut for Clippings.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.1.7.1-signed).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Link Visitor 3

Mark SOME links possible Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Ctrl-F3 rocks & Alt-F3 rocks: Mark selected links as visited / unvisited.

I changed these with KeyConfig addon: Ctrl-Alt-V and Ctrl-Alt-U, easier to remember!

I had to UNINSTALL "Clippings" addon as that addon is hard-coded with Ctrl-Alt-V.


Has the following been fixed already? See previous review:

Clean Links

Good idea, but what is the benefit? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Sounds like a good idea. BUT, please explain:
- What are the benefits of not having nested links? Any drawbacks?
- Does removing nested links cause problems on any web sites? Examples of this?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.1-signed). 

Multi Links

Open Multiple LInks Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I searched for OPEN MULTIPLE LINKS and I found this the most recently updated addon that does this. (Situation 2011.10).

I have one MAJOR complaint: after opening the links, I would like the colored boxes not to vanish! That would help me to remember, which links I have just opened!

Therefore, I ALWAYS use LINKY addon instead of Multi Links.

Greasemonkey

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I installed Domain Blocker for Google Search.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.12.1-signed). 

FacebookBlocker

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I am using Firefox 3.xx. But this did NOT work.

This worked:
Install Firefox and the AdBlock Plus add-on
Add Filter:
||facebook.*$domain=~facebook.com|~127.0.0.1

Source: http://blog.thoughtpick.com/2010/07/how-to-disable-facebooks-social-plug-in.html

I Googled for:
Facebook social plugins disable

LeechBlock

Excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I use it like this: max 10 minutes for Google per 1 hour. Then I remember to take a break!

This is a great feature:
"You can click here to access the page once the block has expired".

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.2.1-signed). 

Wiktionary and Google Translate

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is a good addon after unticking everything in "options". I can then still use Tools / Translate without any other bloatware.
