My Reviews

Vertical Tabs

Doesn't work for me Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Only shows my 3 pinned tabs, at full title-long width instead of minimized.

Tree Style Tab

Excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works great. Though I wish you could put toolbar buttons on the same row as pinned tabs.

Bug: If you remove the "List all tabs" button from the tab bar, the tab bar stops being displayed (wherever you've put it) you have to disable the add-on in order to put the button back and then re-enable it.
A few minor conflicts with other add-ons:
Double Click Add New Tab adds a tab at the very end of the tab bar instead of next to the current tab like it does without this add-on.
UnloadTab fails to show unloaded tabs as greyed out sometimes.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.17.2016031101).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

HTTPS Everywhere

Takes up space Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Excellent for Firefox, but not for Android: It puts an icon in the address bar that can't be hidden. Screen space is precious on mobile!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.1.4). 

Restart

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is nice except the icon looks very much like an Options button.

Advanced Locationbar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works great.

Textarea Cache

Broken Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Was a 5-star essential add-on but no longer works as of Firefox 44.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.3.2.1-signed). 

Toolbar Position Changer

Conflicts with Tree Style Tab Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Stops the addon Tree Style Tab from working.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.1). 

It's All Text!

Inconsistent Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Great when it works, but it doesn't work at all on the sites I most want it, like Facebook and Wikipedia. Also would be nice if there were an option for a context menu item.

Tree Style Tab

Great Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works well apart from one thing: if you remove the "List all tabs" button from the tab bar, the tab bar stops being displayed (wherever you've put it) you have to disable the addon in order to put the button back and then re-enable it. I also wish you could put toolbar buttons on the same row as pinned tabs.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.16.2016021602). 

Bottom UI

Leaves a blank toolbar at the top Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It can't move the actual Windows titlebar so it leaves a blank toolbar at the top which is ugly, so you may as well keep the menu bar visible (there is an option for this).

UnloadTab

Good Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works well. Lacking a few minor things, like a warning when unloading a tab in which you've typed text into an input box.

Redirect Remover

Replaced by RedirectCleaner Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Replaced by RedirectCleaner, but Clean Links is better (or Redirect Bypasser if you have CPU cycles to waste).

Gallery Plus

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works great, on list or gallery view.

No more Facebook redirect

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Does what it says.

Turn Off the Lights

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A great improvement for watching video. Professionally done.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.3.0.5.1-signed). 

Send Tab URLs

OK... Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Multiple Tab Handler is superior (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/multiple-tab-handler/)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.1-signed). 

Cookies Manager+

Useful Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Useful but be careful not to use Cookies Manager+ to delete all your cookies - it's extremely slow (100% CPU for several minutes before I gave up) - whereas Firefox's built-in function is instant.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5.1.1-signed.1-signed).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

StretchClock Break Reminder - Desk Yoga

Takes up a lot of room Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It would be great except for the fact that it takes up a lot of room in the add-ons bar and can't be moved.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4.1-signed). 

FormFox

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Doesn't work on all forms, but sometimes is better than never.

SSLGuard

Too difficult Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Am I right in thinking this is only useful for people who don't notice that they're not on an HTTPS page?

Seems this isn't quite ready yet, given the things it breaks, or worth the added complexity...
