My Reviews

Noise Control

It is becomming better and extremely usefull. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Now that I used it for a while, I changed my opinion. This extension works well and extremely useful if you are opening multiple tabs at the time. It may not identify exact tab that is making background noises through flash, but it way easier to look through two tabs instead off 20. Hopefully, this functionality will be default on Firefox. Still wish that they would given you an option of few icons on the tab instead of just default.

Yahoo Mail Button

Just a button. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

What is a point of button if extension does not even show unread emails? Just put Yahoo Mail shortcut in bookmarks. But on the plus side, button works.

Also, unlike what HonzaH said, there is no malware inside. I even looked inside .xpi package before installation. It contains bare minimum to run this button, thats it.

Web Paste & Go

They did not bother look for the bugs even once. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Trying to right click on text-field opens all menu options available in Firefox(for every element). Do you want to scroll down for a minute just to find your command? I don't. Please look for bugs before releasing your extension. Three year old similar extension does not have any bugs which means you tried to much and screwed up.

Noise Control

It actually works right now. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

My problem that it shows "?" mark next to sound icon on tab. Because it is flash and not HTML5 video? I definitely want more information in description and more options like different color and brightness on icon. This one screams "boldface" and very unaesthetic. Button for this extension that you see on add-ons page and this website would work way better if they put it on the tab instead of ugly one they use right now. But I will definitely keep and eye on this extension. If it improves stylishly and maybe start reading flash sounds, it would be extremely useful to me.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Despite all misgivings about tracking, this is only automatic coping extension that works.

And about tracking. I would expect extension with tracking to be updated way more frequently.They definitely do not send info on coping immediately. I checked traffic with Fiddler and no data is sent. If they send it in batches, which host do they send information to?

To be safe I just removed

from extension folder. It may have being too late but well, extension still works.

Paste and Go Hotkey (Keyboard Shortcut)

Is this project abandoned? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Still works in most places, but I wish it would leave search string in Firefox SearchBox instead of emptying it. I want to remember what I was searching for.

If you try to paste none-link into locationbar, it will do search with default engine. Logical, yes. But I wish I also had an option in this matter too.


Works but disables autoredirect too. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Disables auto-redirect, which is not the same auto-refresh, on all pages. I do not want auto-redirect to be disabled by default as it is mandatory for proper usage of many websites.

Защита персональных данных гражданина и человека

No, thank you Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Making Russian Government job easier at tracking its citizen's online activities? Should such extension even be in this place? If people want voluntarily participate in New Stalin's regime, they should download it from their Government's website.

Google search link fix

Still does not work on Yahoo Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Please fix it.

Clean Video

Slows videos on Youtube and TMZ. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Especially on TMZ. As long as I removed this extension, videos became fast and not choppy as before..

Download Panel Tweaker

Remove from history does not work as it should. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I checked "Also removed from history". Restarted. All of the downloads are still in history.

"Also removed from history" should not be just manual function. It should be option for browser restart/reload first of all.

Qwant - Web search evolved

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Less tracking than other search engines, but they still use Piwik which tracking/analytics service.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.14). 

Menu Filter

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Without ability to move menu items up and down, this is still much less capable than other menu extensions. But, on other hand, it does well what it is supposed to do(hide/unhide).

Youtube HTML5 Video Player

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Does not work with Vevo videos and some other channel videos.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.3). 


Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Third Review.

Developer addressed all requests well. So all previous bugs have been fixed. And, one new was introduced.

With all options for bordering, even if unchecked, it is impossible to return to default settings. Like on this website, search field is solid blue, no meter if I unchecked all bordering options.

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Worked up until today.

Today I got again capcha page: "Our systems have detected unusual traffic from your computer network. This page checks to see if it's really you sending the requests, and not a robot."


Second review Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Developer fixed button and functionality expended greatly, but there is still one missing function/bug that stops me from recommending this extension.

When scrolling through the page, with mouse cursor on the page, focus get trapped in some random text/form field. So when I use Pageup/Pagedown keyboard buttons to scroll, I get stuck all the time.

Is it possible to add option to release focus when mouse pointer gets away from text field/form field during pageup/pagedown or mouse-wheel scroll, not just when it moves to another text/form field?

Select like a Boss

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Excellent idea. Now I do not have to select the whole link and then trim it. But I have to second request to improve selection process by preventing links from opening during selection.

Context History

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Does not work anymore :( What else to say.

ichinen search for Firefox

Interesting but not too complicated for now Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Would be more interesting if I knew Japanese as It is way too complicated to switch to English. Deleting Japanese localization just removes extension icon. You need to overwrite Japanese localization with English one by replacing file.
It would also be extremely helpful to put extension button into Google page itself instead of toolbar. Best option would next to Google's "search tools" link/button itself. Right now it takes toolbar space
