My Reviews

HabuL

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Still works with TB 17.0 but no longer moves the reported email from Junk to Trash. Any plans for an update?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.14.0). 

Yet Another Smooth Scrolling

Home and Support Pages Not Found Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Both the Home Page and Support Site for this add-on return "404 Not Found" errors.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0.23.1-signed). 

Google Contacts

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Installed this addon and linked my google account and all google contacts were created in a new TB address book correctly.

Found a BIG problem that when I update one of the contacts in the TB address book the change is not being reflected in google.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6.40).

Tap Row For Details Message Disappears Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Whilst the concept is great, unfortunately this add-on does not work on a Samsung Galaxy S2 (Android)

After the initial installation the TAP ROW FOR DETAILS appears and if you hit it the sub page displays in the preferences correctly.

However after closing Firefox and re-opening it the message no longer shows.

I uninstalled the add-on, reinstalled it, and the same thing happened.

NB This may be Firefox problem rather than with the add-on because the same thing happens with the Clear History add-on.

Tweak Network

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This extension still works in FF 7.0.1 as it was originally coded BUT the problem is that if you use the POWER mode the extension sets the preference network.http.max-connections to 40 because in earlier releases of FF the default was 16, then 24.

In FF 7.0.1 the default for the preference network.http.max-connections is now 256.

Therefore using this extension in POWER mode slows down FF.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5.1-signed). 

PlacesCleaner

Very Useful Addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great addon to delete the history that builds up and that is not required.

A couple of suggestions
- make all of the preferences individual with their own check box rather than the 2 check boxes that are there
- add zero and one day to the pull down list of "Prevent Days"

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.41.1-signed). 

CookieCuller

"Cookie Keep List" Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you for a tool to create a "Cookie Keep List", something that 'standard' Firefox does not provide. Whilst Firefox Cookie Exceptions provides a method to Block or Allow or Allow For Session, it does not provide the ability to keep cookies already accepted, and this add-on does just that. It could be further enhanced if it deleted the unwanted cookies either when closing Firefox or at timed intervals.

ThunderPlunger

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I was wondering how much work would be involved to enhance the "Clean Accounts" processing to also check the Thunderbird PREFS.JS file for orphaned mail.identity.idX and mail.server.serverX entries.

When I look at my Thunderbird PREFS.JS file there are more entries than I have email accounts. I have removed some email accounts and servers over the years.

Thanks

Bookmark Duplicate Detector

Does not display the actual URL Rated 2 out of 5 stars

When importing some bookmarks the add-on detected some duplicates as I would expect, BUT the notification message in the pop up window failed to display the URL so I had no idea which bookmark it was. The message said THIS URL IS ALREADY IN FOLDER(S).........DO YOU WISH TO ADD AS A DUPLICATE...?
Nowhere did it display the actual URL rendering the add-on to be less than usable

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.8). 

Bookmark Duplicate Detector

More current release at home page Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Be aware that currently the release shown here at addons.mozilla, 0.7.5 is not the latest.

When researching a problem with the Duplicate Bookmarks add-on, I ran the "Find Updates" for Add-ons in Firefox, and it found none.

However when looking at the home page for the add-on I discovered that there is a newer release.

http://bookmarkdd.mozdev.org/, the homepage for the add-on shows 0.7.9 as well as 0.7.8

Why is addons.mozilla not up to date?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.8).

Great Tool Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Broadband Speed Test and Diagnostics

Link For Latest Version Please./ Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I have been trying to download the latest version of the Windows version of the Broadband Speed Test and Diagnostics add-on for Firefox 3.0.5.

At https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/2360 is version 1.1, dated June 12th, 2007.

At the bottom of this page is the following : "The latest version 1.2.4 fixes the untrusted SSL Cert bug. You can find it at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addons/versions/2360 (pending review)"

That link has 2 versions listed - 1.2.4 dated September 25th, 2008 and 1.2.5 dated November 3rd, 2008.

When trying 1.2.5 Firefox says it will not install the file becase of an invalid file hash -261

I also found versions listed at http://www.dsl-speedtest.us and also at http://www.downloadroute.com/Broadband-Speed-Test-and-Diagnostics-DSL-SpeedTest/updates.html.

At http://www.dsl-speedtest.us/ there is a link to a Help Forum at http://www.gotomyhelp.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=18 where the latest posting was July 12th, 2008

Please advise where I can get the most recent working update?

Show Address

continuous javascript error Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Great add-on but a long time since an update and continuous javascript error in console -

JavaScript component does not have a method named: "getRowProperties"' when calling method: [nsIMsgCustomColumnHandler::getRowProperties] = NS_ERROR_XPC_JSOBJECT_HAS_NO_FUNCTION_NAMED

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.0.5). 

RAMBack

Broken in 3.0.3 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This addon is not working in the latest release of Firefox (3.0.3).
I noticed that there has only ever been the one release back in November 2007 - perhaps the author is not maintaining the addon any more.

Lazarus: Form Recovery

What Everyone Needs Rated 5 out of 5 stars

"This is the biggest thing since sliced bread".

I have lost count how many times this has happened to me - thank you for the add-on that should be number 1 on the list

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.2).
