My Reviews

CookieKeeper

confusing user interface Rated 3 out of 5 stars

CookieKeeper has a somewhat confusing user interface. In one window you can select to protect cookies, but another window requires you to exactly type in web sites that are to be protected (or blocked), and does not show the ones already designated as protected. Leaving aside the exact address window, which appears to be useless, the add-on is great.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.8.5.1-signed.1-let-fixed). 

Print Friendly & PDF

output file cannot be found Rated 1 out of 5 stars

cannot find the output file. the programmer claims a dialog box comes up to ask where to save it, but that does not happen on my computer. in short, this addon does not work.

no print file can be found anywhere. definitely NOT in the downloads folder, as the reply suggested.

This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Save Links on ALT-Click

huh? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

does not seem to work, or does so mysteriously.

Save-To-Read

difficult to remove saved items Rated 2 out of 5 stars

That it is difficult to remove items from the saved list was mentioned months ago. A good idea marred by a thoughtless lack of a crucial feature.

Print Friendly & PDF

does not work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

nothing happens when the PDF or Print button are checked. useless add-on.

Color Transform

complicated Rated 2 out of 5 stars

There are no instructions for how it works. The lack of documentation makes it difficult to learn and use.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.9.1.1-signed). 

Disconnect

next to worthless Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Disconnect does nothing but give a brief summary of what it thinks is loaded on the web page that you don't need. Its web page is a bunch of bluster about web sites spying on you, but has no real (technical) explanation of what Disconnect does.

NoScript is a far superior add-on that does what Disconnect claims to do.

FEBE

doesn't work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Tried saving extensions and loading them on a different machine to save the trouble of doing them one by one. FEBE did not work.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (8.3.1-signed). 

Free Memory

stil confusing Rated 3 out of 5 stars

an explanation of the difference between "garbage collection," "cycle collection" and "memory minimization" would be helpful. this is a long-standing issue with this add-on. the developer should realize that his understanding is not self-apparent to users.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.95.1-signed.1-signed). 

Tab History Menu (modified)

needs updating for Firefox 28 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

With Firefox v28, this add-on makes it more difficult to close a tab, by often requiring multiple clicks. It also retards the ability to drag-and-drop tabs. Worked well with previous versions.

Lightning

lacking Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Lightning has limited features, and is not well thought out. For one, it only shows one month, when there is plenty of space to show several. The calendar should integrate with contacts for appointments. The developers should take a close look at Outlook and Efficient Calendar, and see what they are missing.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.9.1). 

ThunderSync

features? Rated 2 out of 5 stars

A lot of explanation with little clarity. I was hoping to be able to import vCard files with this, but cannot figure out how to do that, or if this add-on does that.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1). 

MRC Compose

wrongly adds attachments Rated 2 out of 5 stars

MRC Compose automatically adds any attachment you used in a previous email to the next (current) email. It is a bug, as there is no way to turn this off. I can't figure out how to report this as a bug, which is also a bug.

The developer replied, but the link given has no entry point to report the bug.

Here is how to create the problem:

1) add an attachment (a#1) to an email (e#1)
2) send email e#1
3) create email e#2
4) email e#2 automatically has attachment a#1

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

TB Custom Toolbar

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Does not work with TB 17

Advanced Unread Folders

can't remember its option Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This add-on cannot remember the options you select (v 17.0.6), which makes it less useful in seeing what you'd prefer not to see. I'm pitching it because it does not offer a convenience.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0). 

Manually sort folders

well done and quite useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is an essential add-on if you want control over your folder listings. Works at every level, from accounts on down to every folder level. Also allows you to set your preference for the startup folder.

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

ImportExportTools

most excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Needed to import .eml messages from The Bat!. This worked great. Nice work.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.8.0.3). 

Sage

decent, weak documentation Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Works well enough once you figure it out. Typical of software developers, the documentation for this add-on is sketchy. If you don't know a lot about the technology, you will be confused.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4.14.1-signed). 

NewsFox

worthless Rated 1 out of 5 stars

buggy. difficult to use.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.8.4.1.1.1-signed). 

Session History Tree

not what it says Rated 1 out of 5 stars

does not work as advertised. only provides a button to "clear session history" in view/toolbar/customize.

The add-on "Tab History Menu" does a better job of what this add-on purports doing.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.1-signed.1-signed).
