MEO Cloud

Corrector para Português de Portugal, Pré AO1990

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I don't care about cookies

Excellent add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It does only one thing, but it does it in perfection, quietly and without bothering in any possible way. It is highly recommendable for everyone fed-up with this EU useless norm because what people would like was not to make the sites tell us they use cookies, because that we already know, but that they ***ASK*** permission to.


For the developer:

When we happen to go to a site showing that silly warning about them using cookies and we click on the context menu to report we get a confirmation request notice and thereafter a confirmation stating the warning will soon be not seen and a request for a donation. To make easy to send the donation, it would be convenient for the developer to add a direct link to the donation page. Also, using PayPal only is a restriction.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.7.2). 

Block Site

Very annoying Rated 2 out of 5 stars

We can't even import or export any list.

European Portuguese Spellchecker

Será mesmo para ajudar ou para estorvar? Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Ainda não verifiquei, mas provavelmente trata-se duma versão como a pré-AO do site Natura que nem reconhece os mais elementares verbos pronominais. Se reconhecer volto aqui dentro de três dias para corrigir esta revista. Se não reconhecer, fica como está.

O que de certeza não vou retirar é que é uma asneira das mais crassas (esta palavra também não reconhece) escrever «European Portuguese». Alguém já viu nalgum lado «European English», «European French», «European Spanish» ou qualquer outro do género? Mais uma invenção de tuga espertalhaço?

De qualquer forma, este dicionário é de uma pobreza extrema com um vocabulário reduzidíssimo (mais uma palavra que também não reconhece). Um autêntico atraso de vida. A pobreza das sugestões apresentadas também não têm comparação ao que encontro nos dicionários de outras línguas.

PriceBlink - Price Comp & Coupons

Could Be Great Rated 2 out of 5 stars

It is excellent on showing vouchers everywhere, even on sites not meant to, as UK and US, like Aliexpress, but that is all it shows for me. No price comparison, no reviews, even on e-Bay or Amazon. It only does one of its three main functions, so if I give it two stars I am already giving more than one third for each function. With so many people saying it works, it must have a bug and it is useless for me.

What is the use of this add-on if it only compares prices to shops in UK or US when we want to be able to buy from any country in the world?

Not working in Firefox Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Definitely for dumbs using that browser for dumb people, Google Chrome.

Why are these people cheating on us by putting here something that does not work?
THE FIVE-STAR REVIEWS COULD ONLY HAVE BEEN WRITTEN BY THEIR OWN STAFF.

Definitely, not recommended.

Price Rocket

Duesn't work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Very simple to say. It just doesn't work, not even on known sites like e-bay.

Pure rubbish.

Price Expert

Very deceived Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I had this add-on for about one year before. It worked perfectly as expected, but suddenly it stopped opening to show prices on pages with plenty of prices. I didn't care much because I was planning to reinstall the OS, so also Firefox.

Now, I installed it a week ago on this fresh installation of Windows and Firefox, but for my astonishment it ONLY opens on Google searches, and when the search results do not show any price. Not on pages with plenty of prices, like e-Bay.

Obviously, I am going to remove it fro, Firefox and try something else.

anonymoX

Very annoying with stupid large pop-ups Rated 2 out of 5 stars

It has become useless and extremely annoying. Every now and then ot soots this notive:

"Sorry! anonymoX is overloaded
As you may already know, we are providing an anonymization network. It consists of many computers we need to maintain to anonymize your internet traffic. Because of the many users, there are times when it gets overloaded.
While our network is under heavy load, only users of anonymoX Premium have guaranteed access."

This is very stupid I only seldom use it, and so it has always come up when I am NOT using it. What do I care whether it is overloaded or not? I will disable it for now, and will try to reenabled again in the future. If id goes on the same I will uninstall it immediately. Why should I want something that is constantly bothering me?

The replies given by the founders are not even believable. It is a lie for a trap.

Adblock Plus

Always the best Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm have been using the desktop version for ages also for mail. If hate ads. Their only use for me is to know what is must avoid.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.6.7.1-signed). 

QuickWiki

Seopped working Rated 2 out of 5 stars

It worked very well, but stopped with Firefox 29 and still the same with version 30. When the Wikipedia or Wiktionary window should open only a small window shows a message "Looking up xxxxxxx on Wikipedia". I removed and reinstalled, but no way.

The developer does not offer any contact, but only a way to donate... strange. Not possible to give this add-on a 5 star, as it might deserve, because this seems to be permanent.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.3.1-signed.1-signed). 

Proxy List

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It used to be a quite very good add-on, but that changed. The proxies are now not only not working but also full of too much pub. Ad Blocker, BlockSite and others do hide the ads, but they are often so many that they clock Firefox and it disappears and I have to close it with Task Manager to be able to restart it. Some proxy sites are very dangerous because if you are not careful they will install you unwanted programs, spies and trojan horses.This is not the fault of the add-on or the developer's, but it is no longer recommendable. Avoid it! Run away from it. Pity.

glowywine

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This and the other Glowies has been my preferred for years. Is is a pity I had to give them up because the developer does not update them. He doesn't have to if he does not wish, but someone else could keep his past good work alive.
