Complete YouTube Saver

Works perfectly after you figure it out Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The advantage to Complete YouTube Saber (CYS) over other YouTube video downloaders is that it allows you to download a video in the highest resolution possible for that video. It also provides a host of additional download options. In order to accomplish all this, CYS relies on an external program called "FFmpeg."

CYS achieves full functionality only after you download and save the FFmpeg program to your computer. The program doesn't actually install; it just sits in the folder where you've saved it.

To his credit, the developer provides an interface within the add-on to facilitate the download. Unfortunately, the interface is somewhat confusing and defaults to an option to download FFmpeg in a format that requires you to install another program just to decompress the download. Who needs that?

It's best to avoid the built-in interface and download the latest version of FFmpeg manually. Go to the FFmpeg download site at

https://ffmpeg.zeranoe.com/builds/

Select the appropriate options and click on the "Download FFmpeg" button. You'll get a zipped folder which can be decompressed in the usual way.

After you've saved the unzipped FFmpeg folder to the location of your choice, select the "FFmpeg" tab in CYS, select the option "I have already downloaded FFmpeg," and enter the location where you've saved it. Your file path will conclude with the "bin" folder of your unzipped download, within which the file "ffmpeg" resides.

FoxClocks

Works perfectly Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works perfectly with the Add-ons Bar that's built into Classic Theme Restorer.

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

Track Package

Completely broken Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Too bad. It used to be useful.

Copy Link Title

It works, but... Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Works perfectly. Unfortunately, it sits at the bottom of the context menu where it makes no sense, and it can't be moved. It doesn't even show up in Menu Wizard.

Contact Photos

Works perfectly Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Does exactly what it's designed to do. Replaces Display Contact Photo.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.12). 

Text Legibility

Great idea! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

When I first reviewed this add-on I thought it didn't work. That's because I was testing it on addons.mozilla.org. For some reason it doesn't work on that site, but it does seem to work on all the other sites I tried.

Text Legibility allows you to set various parameters globally; that is, the settings you choose will apply to all sites. This is convenient but it can lead to some inconsistent results. Firefox's built-in zoom feature enables you to tailor zoom levels to individual sites.

InfoLister

Completely broken Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Will not function in Firefox 50.

Layout Button

Exactly what I was looking for Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Perfect! This add-on provides a toolbar button which lets you toggle between classic, wide, and vertical views. Normally I use vertical view, but when using ThunderBrowse classic view works better. I needed a way to switch from one view to the other without resorting to View menu > Layout. Maximize Message Pane cannot restore the vertical view. Layout Button works perfectly.

Speed Tweaks (SpeedyFox)

Excellent! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Saves me the trouble of making all the individual changes to about:config. One click does it all.

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

Display Contact Photo

I miss it! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Display Contact Photo was one of TB's most attractive GUI improvements. Sadly, the developer has failed to keep pace with changes to TB, so the add-on doesn't work anymore. A shame.

ThunderBrowse

Still works Rated 4 out of 5 stars

ThunderBrowse continues to work just fine in TB 45. However, not all of the options work, and changes to those that do work are not reflected in the options window. The options selected in the options window remain unchanged even after you have selected different options and ThunderBrowse's behavior has changed. Weird!

Fennec Copy Link Text

Stuck Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Works exactly as it should. Unfortunately, it's stuck at the bottom of the context menu and Menu Wizard can't budge it.

CLEO

Partially broken Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The "overwrite options" feature defaults to "abort" and cannot be changed to either of the other two options.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.1). 

FEBE

Works perfectly now Rated 5 out of 5 stars

FEBE stopped working completely in Firefox 45, but it works just fine in Firefox 45.0.2. It's an extremely helpful add-on. I just wish the developer would revive TEBE for Thurnderburd.

eBay for Firefox

A Disaster Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I never stop being amazed at the idiocy of certain programmers. This update effectively cuts off the user's buying activity by preventing him from following the auctions he's interested in bidding on.

I was able to work around this disaster by deleting the Mozilla folder in AppData\Roaming and replacing it with a saved profile from several weeks ago. The eBay Sidebar still works perfectly in Firefox 45, just as it did before.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.2.0.19). 

Clean Uninstall

Superb! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is the kind of add-on I love to review. The developer has found a general need, as opposed to the hundreds of squirrely add-ons continually being produced which are useful to only a handful of Firefox's millions of users, and filled it very well.

The program does exactly what it's designed to do. It eliminates the task of going back through about:config using eCleaner or some other method to find outmoded preferences. Instead, it deletes the unneeded preferences at the same time as you delete an unwanted extension.

My only complaint is that a pop-up appears when the preferences have been removed informing you of the fact. You have to click in the pop-up to get rid of it. Developer needs to include an option either to eliminate the confirm, or else to limit its duration to a few seconds, so a click on it isn't needed.

Other than that extremely minor quibble, I was totally impressed with this developer's work.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.2). 

Stylish

Doesn't work in Thunderbird anymore Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Completely broken.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.6). 

Message Notes Plus

It's stuck at the bottom of the menu. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The "Notes" menu item is stuck at the bottom of the context menu and can't be moved by Menu Wizard.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4.0.8). 

Clear Form History

Doesn't work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The context menu item to clear form history never appears.

Simple Clocks

Terrific! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

An excellent replacement for FoxClocks. Works perfectly in Firefox 44 with the New Add-on Bar extension.
