My Reviews

Fast Image Research

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

EDIT.
Working great now. For some reason it started re-directing to the Google Homepage, but it's suddenly started working as described. Excellent addon.
Would be nice to if the menu text had an icon/thumbnail to help it stand out. And also an option to stop it switching to the new search tab.

Search by Image for Google

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Until this week it worked flawlessly, and made TinEye look worthless. Suddenly it's stopped working, Google is redirecting it to the standard Google Homepage. I notice Google have their own official version out. I wonder if they have decided to hobble Mr Muir's excellent addon ?

Google by Image Restartless

Doesn't work with FF18 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Doesn't work with FF18 - just brings up Google.com and locks the input box.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1). 

Search by Image for Google

Doesn't work with FF18 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Does not work with FF18, it just opens up the Google Homepage and no results (even the input box is locked).

Google Search by Image

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Has this been updated to work with FF18 ? All it does it take me to the Google homepage without performing the said image search.

Google Translator for Firefox

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I love that it replaces the original text at the press of a key, BUT, there seems no hotkey to revert to the original text ?
This is essential when using it for Japanese/Chinese, because the user needs to copy the original text to the clipboard to paste directly into Google Translate - which supports pinyin and romanji viewing.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.0.3). 

Quick Translator

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It's a great Addon.
-The translation box needs to be floating, rather than immovable in the BR corner.
-The copy button should copy the ORIGINAL text to the clipboard, NOT the translated text - this is because Google often messes up Japanese/Chinese and as you don't support Romanji and Pinyin then the user needs to copy the original text to Google Translate directly so as to see the pinyin/romanji.
- Macro key options are limited to the F keys and A-Z (!)

Easy Google Translate - NOW TALKING!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Pathetic begging message ruins this otherwise great addon. Really, the begging message WILL annoy the f**k out of you CONSTANTLY.

CacheViewer Fx21

Doesn't work in FF18 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Apparently FF18 changed as [quote from the Dev of a rival viewer); " Mozilla removed a key method in their API that...[is used].... to retrieve entries from the cache."

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9). 

Stealthy

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

All it is is a proxy switcher AND it absolutely DOES NOT WORK IN CHINA. So if you are in China then don't waste your time.
I tried the PRO version too, this does not work in China either, it is blocked.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.3.3). 

Gimages Uploader

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Translation via Google Translate

"The PNG image for the free service Gimage.TK"

UploadProgress

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It causes occasional (1 in 10 times or so) bulk uploads to vBulletin boards to fail - which is VERY annoying, but overall the addon is essential, and the annoyances are outweighed by it's massive usefulness.

Forum Preview

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

No, really, it wasn't a bogus review, I really wanted to like this addon, but I couldn't find out what it did. I had another look at your pictures, does it load images in the sidebar ?? If so, I didn't check that.
ANYONE WHO WANTS TO TRY THE ADDON, PLEASE DO, MY COMMENT FROM FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF A PERSON WHO COULDN'T FOLLOW THE CLUES IN THE PICTURES.

Memory Fox

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

FF is a greedy memory hogging MF, and this addon seems to help.
Don't forget to increase the default times between optimizing, because if you leave it at 0 or 1 min then it can interfere with websites loading - especially flash heavy ones, or one with movies like Youtube.
Not sure what the Blacklist is for ? Is it for sites you DON'T want MemoryFox to optimize ? That would be useful if it is.

British English Dictionary

Should be integrated Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Mozilla really needs to integrate this kind of thing into FF !!
I spent from v7 to v12 not knowing why spell checking whilst typing was not working - only to find out that it was now a sodding ADDON !!
No wonder people are going over to Chrome with design issues like this !

Cleanest Addon Manager

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Awesome ! FF10.0.2

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3). 

Leopard Mail-Default-Aqua

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Follow UID's advice about removing version number limitation and it works with 10.0.2.
Doesn't look so pretty in XP as in Vista or 7, but still very nice.

ThunderBrowse

No BACK button (!) Rated 1 out of 5 stars

No BACK button renders this browser impotent.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.8). 

MinimizeToTray revived

Bloody BRILLIANT !! TB 10.0.2 and XP64.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0). 

ThreadVis

Doesn't work with XP-64 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

v2.1.702. Open a message and it just says "loading threadvis" and does nothing - forever.
RC on the 'loading....' message, and the formatting of the menu is shot to hell and also does nothing.
Pity. It looks great (for other people).
