My Reviews

Tabloc

Open Link in New Tab Rated 3 out of 5 stars

When I click a link in a locked tab, the link is opened in a new tab (which is what I want) but firefox does not switch to it - I have the «Options->Tabs->When I open a link in a new tab, switch to it immediately» setting checked - and in unlocked tabs it works.

UT

Sort and Search Customization Dialogs

Not 4 Me Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Before You Try This - BACK UP YOUR PROFILE

It completely wrecked my vertical tab bar
Lost items from my AIOS Toolbar and moved it
Changed Icons elsewhere
Clobbered Search Bar Autosizer

I thought I was getting a sorted customize button box, what I got was a bunch of tangled zippers - thank God for firefox backup/restore

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very good

Vertical Toolbar

This is an excellent extension Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm surprised it has taken me so long to find it.

MR Tech Toolkit

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I used maybe 20% of the MR Tech Toolkit features of in FF3.6, I've found FF4 alternatives for most of them. Some are a bit better than their MRTT feature and some not quite as good - but they're all liveable with.

The only thing I've not found and that I miss is an equivalent of the MRTT's Add on Manager menu. Does anyone know of another extension that does a menu for Add Ons Manager similar to the one provided by MRTT.

I've always rated MRTT 4/5 star, precisely because it's like swiss army knife.

But I'm beginning to wonder if its not better to have many small add-ons each addressing a specific need, rather than a few swiss-army-knives/ jack-of-all-trades add-ons. Guess I'll see how I feel when MR Toolkit is released for FF4.

IE Tab

3.6 Pleeeeeeze Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Another plea for a 3.6 compatibility - I tried version check override but had problems, so I've gone back to 3.5.7.

I'm using IE Tab a lot since IE8 was released. The sites I have problems with are OK with the IE8 version of Trident AND WEBKIT. The problems are only apparent with Gecko or pre IE8 Trident.

AutoCopy

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Please certify for 3.6 release version

Feed Sidebar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks for the speedy fix - working fine now - back to 5 stars

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.3.1). 

Feed Sidebar

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

latest version 4.3 gives error messages when the sidebar area is full - if I collapse some feeds so there is some empty space the error messages stop

Its an annoyance, but a pretty big one especially when it pops when your in the middle of typing something and you're not looking at the screen. To me it looks like a debug message that didn't get removed before release.

Full Flat Absolute Black

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

update needed - pronto - please

Yet Another Smooth Scrolling

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

A few days ago I rated YASS as One Star and reported that I had disabled YASS 3.0.6 because of its erratic performance.

I can now report that the version 3.0.7 has fixed those problems and I have re rated it to 4 star.

It is a worry that we've had 2 or 3 versions in quick succession. Its not as though scrolling windows are a new concept - Xerox had them 25 years ago.

Yet Another Smooth Scrolling

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Until recently I liked this extension.

The latest update has made my mouse wheel practically useless in FF - it sticks and jerks as though it was dysfunctional hardware.

Its not the mouse, it works fine elsewhere and is OK if I disable YASS. I have WizMouse installed so it could be a clash with the latest version of YASS. But Wizmouse takes precedence, it's a Windows utility without which I'd go nuts - so YASS is disabled

For me none of the enhancements just released were totally necessary.

BTW I clicked the "support section" link on the right of this text box, it links back to this page ?

Drag And Open

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

always creates 2 new tabs and opens the link twice, tried disabling other tab related extensions (TabMixPlus, TabSCope & TabFocus) bet still see dropped links twice.

Great idea - surprised I hadn't seen it sooner,

FxIF

Display Window Rated 5 out of 5 stars

@Webnician wrote "As a suggestion, I wish the EXIF data could be displayed either directly in the contextual menu, in the sidebar, or in a single always-on-top window. Currently, for every image you want to inspect, you must open another "properties" window. It's the appropriate place for the info, but it has limitations -- as soon as you click the page, the properties window is hidden. Then again, perhaps Firefox could provide the option of floating, copying, and saving the "properties" window"

I like the fact that I can have multiple properties windows - if you get a gadget that adds stay on top option to any window (I use the one from ActualTools, its payware but it works) then you can compare the data in the two, three ... six windows- and that's really useful. So I for one would like things to stay the way they are - ie the window persists until I tell it to go away. If you want it in the sidebar you can easily copy and paste it into something like Quicknote that can dock in a sidebar.

Black Steel

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Neat but too much white 4 me, especially in the sidebar - will stick with Glaze Black

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

FEBE

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Interesting they removed all the posts about the recent install problems.

The authors still haven't fixed the issue that if you use a dark them, (eg Glaze Black) then you can't read some of the options panels - you have to go back to the default theme. There are solutions to this - there's the "normal" way, determine a suitable color for text based on the background using a standard color contrast table - i.e. if its black make the text white, there's Interclue way, there's the TMP way and there's the WOT way - but the way FEBE does it (black on black) is IMO, no way!!

Like the recent install problems this issue appears to be peculiar to FEBE - or at least none of the other 40+ extensions I have installed has this it, they may solve it in different ways, but at least they solve it.

I'd love to give it 5 stars but these niggling usability problems persist.

Notepad (QuickFox)

Note there yet Rated 3 out of 5 stars

No Option to park it in the side bar - QN can
If note has url's they are not hot - nor are they in QN
If its going to be a free floating window, with no option to park in the sidebar, then a stay on top button is almost mandatory, not an issue in QN
Re previous comment about colors, QFN "adopts" the Theme color which in my opinion is correct (in my case thats black). The previous comment about it being anemic indicates the users theme is anemic. QN is not necessarily Post-It yellow, the color on each tab can be changed (hint hint)
If I could park it in the sidebar and urls were hot then I'd consider switching from QN to this one if .
The name was changed, to FastNotes or FoxNotes, IMO using QuickFox Notes is close to a breach of trademark - at least from an ethical perspective if not a legal one.

FxIF

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

works fine for me, would like to see more IPTC data and configur-ability.

I can't imagine I'd ever want to see keywords but I'd often like to see Category, Credits and Object Name; someone else might want to see keywords or supplemental categories.

Same with EXIF fields, if I want them all then I'll download into Exiftool or PhotoMe. In the browser I'd prefer to limit it to say Camera Make, Model, Exposure Time., FNumber, ISO, Shutter Speed, Max Aperture, Distance, LightSource, Focal Length

Overall its pretty good.
