My Reviews

Page Control

I don't recall installing this. Firefox already has a pop-up blocker built in. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I don't recall installing this.

It's a pain, it blocks valid pages from loading and doesn't supply an option to remember not to block those pages.

It also obscures the top of the page which in some cases blocks a search box.

'click for options'

But no useful options.

Copy Plain Text 2

It works Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I can finally paste stuff into spreadsheets or text boxes without the long winded special paste or paste into notepad and copy and paste again malarkey.

User Agent Switcher

Pointless, only works briefly. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The author knows the user agent resets every time Firefox is started but does nothing to deal with this.

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.

Easy Copy

Brilliant, handy easy. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This will save a lot of time, I can open a bunch of bookmarks and get a bunch of link code, paste like so:

Paste Quote

Rated 1 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)

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.

ReloadEvery

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.
