My Reviews

Cookies Manager+

Essential for developers and privacy-aware Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm come to rely on this extension SO much, it really saddens we that Mozilla is dropping the API that made it possible. A MUST for devs and anyone privacy aware.

Self-Destructing Cookies

Works great Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works perfect. I've become SO used to it, I don't think I could ever turn back.

Regrettably, it does not work with privacy.firstparty.isolate, thought that's a pretty uncommon (and beta?) flag.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.11).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Self-Destructing Cookies

Greats! Lacks sync support Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works great. Very simple UX, and does everything I'd expect it to. It just lacks Firefox Sync support, so I have to whitelist new sites on each computer.

FindBar Tweak

Work flawlessly Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It does just what it promises, and the visual hints are something I can't believe I lived so long without!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.9). 

HttpRequester

Simple but great Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A very simple extension. Does exactly what I expected. Highly recommended.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.1-signed.1-signed). 

Bookmarks Checker - check for bad links

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works like a charm, does exactly what it says.
Can also find duplicate bookmarks, which I also found immensly useful.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.1.1.1-signed). 

Beyond Australis

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works just as expected, leaves a cleaner UI, but everything is still a mouse movement away.
I like how hotkeys are not broken either: ctrl+l focuses the awesome bar AND reveals it, as expected.

My only nitpick is that I'd like to be able to trigger a reaparience by moving the mouse to the upper 20% of the screen, and no necesarily *all* the way up.

[EDIT (since it seems I can't reply here?)]:
I now realized that my suggestion was a bad idea, since, as the dev's reply says, it would make it impossible to click on the upper part of the screen.

Thanks for the great job!

Firesay

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Firefox 4? Firefox 5? Firefox betas? Any *nix/BSD platforms? At least GNU/Linux?

QuoteCollapse

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Holding down CTRL or CTRL+SHIFT does nothing.
Instead of "holding down CTRL SHIFT" to collapse/expand all, maybe a hotkey like "E" and "C" would be better.

This addon would rule if it weren't for that. Since I don't have a mouse most of this time, the fact that the hotkey doesn't work makes it unusable, and I need to actually disable it (since there is no workaround either).

Also, double clicking on any part of the line of the quoted text to expand it might work too. (Even with a mouse, I have a very hard time aiming at the tiny "+" icon)

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

DHS Facebook Unblock

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Why not just use "HTTPS Everywhere", does the same thing basically, and adds some additional confidentiality to your internet surfing everywhere.

ThunderSync

IMAP instead of files would be total awesomness Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It would be AWESOME if the source/target of these files could be IMAP-stored attachments. The new Thunderbird 3.3 API might help doing this, and that would allow thunderbird<->thunderbird transparent syncronization :-)

I use SVN+CRON to achieve something similar ATM, and as long as there are no conflicts, it runs just fine.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1).
