My Reviews

PopVideo

Does not work Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I have tried this on many sites and it has not worked on any of them. It's a shame, this would be extremely useful.

Always on Top

Essential, but very buggy Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Use this all the time to keep videos in one window on top while browsing in another. Constantly disabling & re-enabling due to bugs.

The Amazon 1Button App for Firefox

Useless Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Brings up a tiny dialogue of features that you can already get fullsize on Amazon. Results are often in the wrong category because of Amazon's terrible data standards (the same ones that make most search results useless on Amazon & make it the world's biggest jumble sale). The items in the dialogue only have 2 short lines for the title so the product name often does not fit and you cannot see what it is. 'Smart Search' redirects to a standard Google search (smart compared to Amazon search). 'Today's Deals' shows a list of products with no links and no way to find the deals, again often with the product names cut out by the 2 line limit... I could go on, but I'm sure you get the point. When they made this they were obviously not thinking about offering anything useful, which forces me agree with other comments suggesting this is purely spyware.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.13.1-signed). 

PriceDrop

Mostly a nuisance Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Only compatible with items sold directly by Amazon, which is a fraction of the items. No options. Only runs when Firefox opens & no 'Search Now', which is not much use if you keep Firefox open a long time and this will add to Firefox's startup time. Much better if these 3 issues were sorted, but should prove useful sometimes.

Edit: I uninstalled this because it is giving an alert every time I open Firefox for prices that have dropped by a few pence. There is no way to configure this add-on so it is mostly a nuisance. The highlighted items stay highlighted even when there is no further drop & cannot be reset. Has not been updated for over 2 years so it probably never will. Now 1 star instead of 2.

Javascript Command

Version 1.01 breaks Customize mode in Firefox 29 Rated 2 out of 5 stars

When in Customize mode this caused a blank window. I just had a green transparent background that matched the Windows Aero titlebar. On exiting Customize the window remained blank until I restarted Firefox. Had to disable this.

CodeBurner for Firebug

Has not worked for years Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I had a tab in Firebug labelled 'Reference' that did nothing. I had to go through all my extensions, disabling them to find what it was and it was this. It has not worked for years and now I remember, it was a 1-star when it did. They still offer an even more outdated version on their website. For a far better reference, right click an element and select 'Search Google (or something better) for...'

Code Coverage v2 for Firebug

Does nothing Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Adds a button to Firebug that does absolutely nothing.

UxU - UnitTest.XUL

All pages blank Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Stops all pages from loading when enabled. Tried numerous options, but it just cripples Firefox. There is no 404, the content does not try to load (all pages blank). The menu commands do nothing. Using FF22.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.1.1-signed). 

WindowShopper - Discover Visually

Worth having, but will leave it disabled until needed Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Very good idea, hope it gets better in future. Results often weren't similar and usually had higher prices. Sometimes refers to questionable retailers. On ebay UK it found the same item on ebay US, but with £49.95 shipping added & it did nothing on Amazon UK. Info popups & image overlays can be irritating, would rather have a sidebar, tab or something that does not obstruct view, perhaps just a button that changes to show when results are available. Coupon/discount popup is a bit intrusive. No configuration. 'See similar' popup opens when the button is hovered (not just when clicked) & clicking on the images always opens a new window, cannot middle-click/right-click. Irritating, but might get you some good deals.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.0.19). 

Greasemonkey

Hit and miss Rated 1 out of 5 stars

There is no documentation so writing a script is near-impossible for many sites. That is why there are thousands of scripts that do not work or that seriously impede performance. It will only get messier without documentation. I gave up trying to deal with events and dynamic content. Regular JavaScript often does not work and it is impossible to find out why. A very tedious way to waste time.

FlashInspector

Problem Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I use Debugger version of Flash 11.1.102.55 and found this add-on was causing all Flash videos to appear as a blank screen, had to remove it.

Edit: Tried it again after deleting mm.cfg. Still blank.
