My Reviews

Video DownloadHelper

Functionality is reliable, have been using for years, small UI issue Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I enjoy the functionality of this add-on, but find it is moving all of the toolbar contents rightward when content is detected in a page and the DownloadHelper icon dynamically adds a pulldown to its appearance. I've missed the Back and other buttons numerous times due to this shifting. Would be nice to see an option to keep the width of this control static within the toolbar.

Session Manager

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on has made life much easier: great management of restores after sudden crashes (whether due to Firefox itself or the system in which it operates), I have saved a number of sessions under "themes" of open tabs that enable me to restore aspects of research or areas of interest quickly (i.e., as opposed to locating individual bookmarks) and it's been easy to use. The review before mine seems a bit beyond the norm and I hope that they can resolve their issues (wherever they exist - perhaps not in this add-on), but comments here by the Developer have been moderate and helpful, from what I can see.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.8.1). 

All-in-One Sidebar

Organizes Firefox nicely, recent performance bug Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I gave this add-on a 5 star rating for the years of usefulness it has provided - having a single location to manage all of my bookmarks, add-ons, history, downloads, etc. has been a great way to keep Firefox organized.

However, something has happened in the past month and this add-on is now causing horrendous slowdowns in the browser - even if it is the only add-on enabled. I had no choice but to disable this add-on, else pull my hair out waiting for many seconds at a time for mouse clicks to be accepted, individual keystrokes to be recognized, etc. Hope the developer can figure out what's going on soon, because Firefox feels all wild and wooly without it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.15).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

gTranslate

Easy, fast and reliable Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Always a great add-on, although it sometimes misses the context of From and To languages if you change them a bit in a given browser session, I've noticed. Still, it's free and works quite well 99% of the time for me. Curious how this is working with Google, now that the free API has been deprecated (i.e., is the gTranslate team paying for v2 API use?)

Text2Link

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works exactly as advertised and is very convenient - I like having the options to open in the current tab, a new tab (with or without that being a background tab) or a new window.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.9.5). 

Tabs Menu

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Combined with Tab Mix Plus, this very useful add-on provides me with a very fast and effective Firefox interface without using the Tab bar.

I use Tabs Menu for all of my inter-tab navigation, which is extremely similar to how I previously used Opera without tabs (natively) for years.

Some of the reviews here are incredibly unfair - if you don't see the point, there's no need to offer a low-star rating for something that you don't use.

For me, this add-on is stable and works quite well. I often have 80+ tabs open and there's no hint of a performance issue from the add-on, itself.

All-in-One Sidebar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This gives me Opera-like convenience and more - a highly recommended add-on.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.7). 

Formfiller

Works under Firefox 3 (assembly required) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've used Formfiller to make up for function that I used in Opera for years. It's a remarkably simple time-saver, but unlike in native Opera, the Formfiller add-on allows for creation of custom fields.

Of course, it isn't being supported actively and Firefox 3 is an issue.

So, I downloaded the latest .xpi file (without directly installing it in Firefox 3 - it won't work as-is), unzipped the package, edited "install.rdf" to allow a max version of "3.*", rezipped into the .xpi file and then installed it locally.

Formfiller can work with Add and Delete keys under FF3, but I noticed that you cannot edit an existing key. For that, you need to delete and recreate the key. Otherwise, functionality seems the same as under FF2.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3).
