another reason to leave firefox Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Now stopped working in Firefox56. With more and more of my favourite addons not working with each update of FF, there is little reason to stay with FF. It isn't the browser it used to be, and it's rivals are better than they used to be. The FF I am forced to use now, is not the FF I wanted because the addons that make it work the way I want it to, don't work.
Shame, but this fiasco with the addons will damage FF.
I used this addon ,multiple times each day, one of the most useful I have ever installed, of course there was no warning from FF that it wouldn't work. What a way to treat users.

Live IP Address

Another victim of FF's extension policy change Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Doesn't work with FF55 upwards. Was good whilst it worked

Auto Shutdown NG

Has worked well Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've used this for at least a couple of years and it's always been foolproof and reliable (with the exception of an unexplained minor bug I experienced once).

It's a shame the author is not going to maintain it in the webextensions era, but I understand.

The demise of this extension will leave a hole in the Firefox armoury unless someone steps in and creates something that works in the future.

Thanks for your work in creating this fine work 99om4!

Auto Shutdown (WebExtension)

Doesn't work in Win 7 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It's not a straightforward installation, as well as the extension, other software has to be downloaded and installed.

Seems to run ok, and the clock countdown to zero, but then an error is indicated. The error suggests a path error but there is no path available to edit.

Altogether a messy extension.

Contacted the author for help.

Edit 30/9/17
No response from author - says a lot when the author doesn't respond to bug reports on his own support site.

Pretty safe to assume this extension is dead.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.1). 

LinkChecker

No response from author Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Emailed author to see if it was being updated. No response. Think that answers the question. Hasn't worked for a while and not going to now that FF is changing the add-on policy/coding.

Consider it dead and buried. Shame, good whilst it lasted.

Pinger

Skips all links Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Doesn't actually check anything, simply skips everything
FF54.0.1

Checker Link-Dead link check-Download link check

nothing happened Rated 1 out of 5 stars

it simply went to another site where I had to manually get it to scan, It then took some time (minutes) before returning to the start scan page. Nothing appeared, no results, nothing. I imagine it was going to make a list of links good/bad but it didn't. In any case, I think people want to see the links highlighted as good/bad in the original page, not go to some other site for a report.

It was also far too slow. Checking a page needs to complete ASAP, not take several minutes.

Not worth a single star

LinkChecker

Appears to have stopped working in FF54 Rated 2 out of 5 stars

As title says, doesn't work in FF54, and the author's pages are dead. I've used it for a long while an d it was very good. Shame it now appears to be dead.

Live IP Address

Works perfectly Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Neat display in the status bar - you need an addon to display the status bar, plus sub menu under Tools for refreshing the IP, copying and setting the auto refresh interval.

Works perfectly, but only displays IP4, it could do with an option to show IP6

Download Panel Tweaker

works great FF50 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Straight our of the box, no adjustment needed

Kanbanmarks

Doesn't work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

There's no options or settings, but the add-on doesn't do anything. A green page opens, saying "loading..." and that's it. It never finishes loading, never gives any error message, never does anything.

I wish the author well with it.

FF 47.0.1

Evernote Web Clipper

Poor, very poor Rated 1 out of 5 stars

On some sites, this works ok. Nothing brilliant, clumsy GUI but it does record the page. On others.... text formatting, paragraphs etc disappear, big areas missing from the page and the page unreadable

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.2.0).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

showmeIP

Uses button on toolbar Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Clicking on button gives nice big display of IP address.

No options, and description on Mozilla Site could do with some description of how it works.

It seems to work but I'm after a permanent display

What's My Public IP

Same as previous review Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Totally unfunctional, not worth any stars, total dud

It would appear the developer doesn't "read every comment and want to hear what you think."

My IP Finder

Doesn't work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

No button appears, no display, nothing FF47
Not worth any stars whatsoever

Media Converter and Muxer

Works perfectly Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Simple clicked the button to download & install ffmpeg.exe and it worked without a hitch.

The complaint I have is that I wasn't given a choice where ffmpeg was installed. It installed in my profile folder which means its only available to me and only in the one profile (I use a couple of profiles). I dislike apps which don't give a choice of install location, and as this add-on appears to allow the user to point the add-on at an existing ffmpeg install, I don't see why it won't allow the install location to be chosen, after all, the path to ffmpeg doesn't seem to be hardwired.

However, the install went fine and the install path was found automatically. Installation took less than 1 minute and the add-on was working.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.9). 

Manually sort folders

only works for some accounts Rated 3 out of 5 stars

very handy when it works, but only works for a few of my accounts. For the others, the app shows the folders sorted how I want them, but even after refreshing, the folder pane is unchanged.

Web Clipper for Trello

Sadly, not a 'proper' webclipper Rated 2 out of 5 stars

What it does is copy the page title and the URL to the Trello card.
What I'm looking for in a webclipper is something that copies the whole page, like a screenshot and saves it to the app. The Evernote clipper seems to be unique because it does save the whole page which is vital to archive something. With this and other 'clippers' that simply save the URL, what you will see when you follow the link is the latest page, not necessarily the page you first saw and wanted to save.

But if you can live with the limitation of just saving the URL and title, this add-on works well, the UI is very good and it asks which Trello card you wish to save to. Perhaps a setting where it either always saves to a default card, or asked you for a location would be useful. If you do a lot of 'clipping' and always save to a default card, that setting could save a bit of time.

This add-on shows promise and some good design features, if the author can make it save the whole page I am sure it would prove very useful as there are many people asking for a true webclipper like the Evernote one.

I wish him well with it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.2). 

Evernote Web Clipper

Does exactly what it says Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Using FF 41.0.1 and works perfectly. Only niggle is that I cannot locate the button where I want it, but understand that is fixed on the latest update.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.0.15.1-signed). 

Trello Improvements

Great add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Adds a few useful extras to the Trello UI. As indicated in red in the author's diagram, the add-on shows the number of cards in each list and the board, the card's unique number, and extends the coloured label across the width of the card (complete with text) rather than the rather small square that Trello displays. This last one really makes it easy to see what label is applied to a card. My labels indicate the priority of the card, so making them easy to see ensures that nothing slips past me. Big labels are especially useful if you have poor eyesight.

The author is active in developing and supporting the add-on and welcomes suggestions for new features.
