Show MyIP

Hasn't worked for a couple of FF versions Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It never worked very well, it only updated the IP when Firefox was started, now it does not get the IP address at all.

Brilliant, handy easy. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Useless for all the forums I post to. <blockquote>example text</blockquote> is what I need for Disqus and the other forums I post to. There should be an option of which tag type to use.

Not working Firefox 30.0 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This addon and ghostery both seem to be broken in Firefox 30 - the worst Firefox update ever IMO.

Dreadful, too many words missing. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

What point is a dictionary that doesn't have a large percentage of the common vocabulary.

Doesn't update when IP changes Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I don't know how long it takes to update the IP address but it seems to be a very long time..over 2 hours!! (ff 28.0)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8).

Menu Editor

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Awesome, using this enables me to use classic look Firefox with a couple of menu items I don't need removed (edit and help) and then put the url box and search box on the top line to have a minimalist browser with maximum usability.

The ability to de-clutter the (right-click) context menu is also awesome.

Thank you to the author for writing this.

Bug:

The Text input box that comes up when you click [report issue] button disappears if you click on any other tab or window. This is very unhelpful if you're trying to paste a link and some other bug related info' in to the box.

British English Dictionary

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Too many words missing.

Plonked? It seems that every other sentence I write hits the dictionary's poor vocabulary.

ASL - Advanced Stop Line. Why does the dictionary not allow abbrev's and capitalised acronyms to be ignored?

What is an apostrophe for? (Answer: ownership and abbreviation/omission.)

Names, names start with a capital letter, so please ignore them. But seriously, Paypal - it's been in existance for long enough, why isn't it in the dictionary as a name?

When I do need a correction, the most likely word is not next to the cursor, but several words down, it makes more sense for the likely correction word to be at the top - this is not an available option.

The date on the dictionary file is 2006, it is a shame that it is being left in this lacking state.

Bing & Google

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Useless - no horizontal scroll bars.

Bing vs. Google

Ruins the search Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Characters like " or ' for searching for phrases get a slash added and both the search engines choke, so there is no comparison when using any non-alpha-numeric character. Please fix.

Sort it out Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Not impressed, tried to foist that nasty smartlinks thing on me and the decline button was not working.

randomUserAgent

It's ok Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Raymii said it right about, I too would like to see:
Specify your own list of agents (txt file or so)
Status-bar icon instead of the user agent

Although I'd personally prefer the user agent to change when I open Firefox, any more might get me logged out of some sites.

The list of user agents is far too small, see this site for tons more:
http://www.user-agents.org/

Having a changing user-agent is a great privacy tool, please make this better.
