GrApple Delicious

Dead? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Ahh. What happened to takebacktheweb.org?
Wondered if there was a new version of this, and instead this version is older than the one i'm using.

DownThemAll!

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Ugly UI needs a makeover, but it does it's thing nicely.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.10).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Adblock Plus

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I waited decades for this!
I hate using browsers without this.
Adblock Plus is the ultimate add-on.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.2). 

1-Click YouTube Video Download

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I first tried this a while back because it said it worked on the new YouTube layout and doesn't redirect to some web page. Didn't do anything.

Looking for a downloader again and this was the most recently updated one. Asks for a filename but has failed to download even one video I've tried it on. (FF 3.6.8 Mac)

1-Click YouTube Video Download

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I don't see any contact info.

Installed 1.4 and I'm seeing the nice little links on Youtube, but it downloads zero bytes.

NoScript Security Suite

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I'm a Mac user that has NEVER actually encountered a virus or worm. I find this to be nothing but a pain in the nether regions since it tends to break function of every other site.

Now an add-on to block ONLY scripts which cause problems, i could use.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.9.9.57). 

Firebug

Spectacular! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Coolest thing since Firefox itself. (well, maybe after Adblock Plus & Element Hiding Helper, without which my browsing would be greatly reduced)

I'm just getting back into web page design after quite some time, being very rusty and having out-dated knowledge. Having Firebug installed is helping me imensely in building up my practical knowledge of CSS and it's current usage. I had no idea how awfully most web sites are designed! ;-)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5.0). 

Stylish

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Stylish has become a must-have along with AdBlock, Firebug, and the Grapple Delicious theme!

Now i'm going to have to brush up on my CSS skills!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.8). 

Better YouTube

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Disaster!
YouTube pages have been unplayable for weeks and i've been searching all over unsuccessfully (until today) trying to figure out where the %(*!&^%! these endless "Loading FlowPlayer" messages have been coming from.

Having found it in the prefs for this, i wouldn't have said anything if it weren't for the fact that on this very page it says it's compatible with FF 3.6, which is only true if you're not using FlowPlayer. Otherwise on YouTube you see the loading message forever.

Unhide Menubar

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Missing this in 3.5.5.

I'd change the maxVersion # if i could figure out how to then get it to install.

I keep getting an error saying Firefox can't find the install script. 8^(

Unhide Menubar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Used this for a long time and missing it in 3.5.5!

Comment Snob

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Good idea but i agree that blocking user-defined words would make it brilliant.

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

DownThemAll!

Almost but not quite Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I like the way it's within the browser and the way it sends items to the manager, but the function of the UI itself is pretty gruesome.

Some text boxes are too short to display what they need to (i.e. paths); can't remove an item from the toolbar, removing items is at the bottom of the contextual menu.

Worst is the naming *num* renaming mask element only updating once per session. Useless if it won't sequentially number added items.

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