My Reviews

TabGroups Menu

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Does exactly what I need. This should be standard in Firefox.

Did not find problems in normal use. But I did not test everything that might be possible.

If I could assign shortcut keys so that I can jump directly to a certain group this would be great.

The keys ctrl + ` in Firefox itself is very poor since you just can go from one group to the next or with shift plus the keys above back again.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.1). 

TabGroups Manager

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This project seems to be dead. None of the developers sites are online.

I have endless problems in combination with Tree Style Tab. Often I get a new version of the tab display in respect of hierarchy. Sometimes many tabs are missing and show only up again when I restart the browser.

A good idea - just does not work as expected.

Update:

In the meantime I have been using TabGroups Manager. All the problems with Tree Style Tab are gone for me...so far ;-)

Cookies Manager+

Perfect Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I always lost settings from charts and logon information. With this add-on I just set the expiration date of those cookies to the remote future and nothing gets lost anymore.

Thank you very much for this helpful add-on!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5.1). 

Line Marker

It works even with FF 13 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

You can make any add-on being accepted by FF easily . Go into about:config and add for your FF version (mine is 13.0) the entry

extensions.checkCompatibility.13.0

This is a boolean value. Set it to false.

If you upgrade to a higher FF version just add another entry with the new version information.

For me the Line Marker is a great add-on. I use it with the great add-on UnMHT where you can save webpages or a selection out of it in the compressed mht form. The marked text will be saved as marked with it.

Great Until 0.4.1 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I still give 5 Stars since I hope that this will be fixed and this addon is great. But with the latest version 0.4.2 I get the wrong data when I use Yahoo.

Fix for me - downgrade to 0.4.1

Just as update. In the meantime I talked to the developer and we found the difference. Yahoo uses country specific layouts. At my area nothing got changed by Yahoo and so the 0.4.1 still works but the new version not.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.2).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

selectivecookiedelete

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great add-on. Does what it should do.

Would like to have an easy keep/delete button in the task bar.

On the developers list there are many other interesting things. Hope so much that he will find time.

Update Scanner

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very good. It does not only show you what page changed but even what text changed there. I just have to read the yellow marked text - perfect. Saves me a lot of time.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.1.8). 

Tree Style Tab

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Moving tabs does not work anymore in FF 8. Will not upgrade to FF 8 as long as this is not fixed.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.12.2011082901).  This user has other reviews of this add-on.

BarTab Lite

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great! Since Bar Tab does not work anymore with FF 7 this add-on helps me a lot.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2). 

Autofill Forms

Don't waste your time with it Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It worked without problems with my last Firefox 3.5. But since FF 4 I am not able for instance to export my profiles. You simply get a blank file. This and other problem are known for a long time but no-one cares. So this add-on looks abandoned to me.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.8.1). 

always ".com" - Google.com (in English)

Perfect - Thank You!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Why did I have to search so long for this great add-on;-) Thank you for it!!! And Google should thank you even more. They don't realize that foreigners not familiar with the local language might need a search engine too. Perhaps they should google...

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (20100908). 

SyncPlaces

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Tried Firefox Sync and gave up. Completely useless and impossible to understand.

The worst - FF bookmarks cannot be transferred with standard FF tools from FF 5 to FF 3,5. Not even such a BASIC function works there.But this add-on here is great and works!!! Thank you for fixing the shortcomings of FF!!!

Hard to imagine what great browser FF could be if Andy Halford did the coding ;-)

And imagine how useless FF would be without all this add-ons. They are FF and not Mozilla.

Firefox Sync for Firefox 3.5/3.6

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The worst add-on I have ever installed. I try to sync my bookmarks between FF 5 and FF 3.5 because FF is not able to load a backup from FF5 in FF 3.5. Want to give up FF5 because of crazy memory consumption. But if I import the bookmarks in FF 3.5 all the icons are missing. FF gets more and more scrap. And this add-on does not solve my problem.

There is no documentation for this add-on. So I have no idea how to transfer my bookmarks from FF5 to FF3. FF gets more and more annoying.

LastPass Password Manager

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Storing passwords on a remote server is a very bad idea.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.72.0). 

BarTab

Please Update for 4.0.1 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It is one of my number one add-ons. But sadly it does not work in 4.0.1 with whatever trick. You can set browser.sessionstore.max_concurrent_tabs to 0 in about:config and in the add-on When Restoring Tabs From a Previous Session to Default. Then you do not have to press F5. But Keep Tabs From Special Pages Loaded still does not work then. Tested all this with version 2.1b2.

Still give 5 stars because I hope it will get fixed. Otherwise I will go back to FF 3

Tree Style Tab

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I found the reason for the big slowdown in FF4. It is the usage of the new HW acceleration. Switched this GPU usage off and as fast as before. And not only this add-on. Could be because I do not have a high end graphik card. Happy again with this add-on!

Tree Style Tab

Much slower in FF4 than in FF3 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It is a great add-on. But when I call up Firefox with many tabs it takes endless in FF4 until the tree is complete. In FF3 this was very fast. For this reason only 3 stars now

ColorfulTabs

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Together with Tree Style Tab a PERFECT combination. Thank you very much for it!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.6.3). 

Group/Sort Tabs

Great But Problems Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It is a great add-on but it cannot handle restarts. After a restart of Firefox with the last loaded tabs it does not work. Hope that this can be fixed because then it would be hard to live without it.
