My Reviews


Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The keyboard interface works only partially (the Home key doesn't click Home). The icons work only when clicked in the center (Windows 8.1), and sometimes do not work, or generate 2 or 3 remote clicks (under Windows XP). This app is better than nothing when you've lost the remote control or it stops working.

Restart Browser

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Zero stars!

1. Not a true restart. Apparently, Firefox has not exposed the interface to restart itself. This addon does not fully close Firefox so that it initializes fully.

2. If you click the button right after installing, my main window with 78 tabs disappeared (I have reported this as a bug). Version 1.1. (I'm an advanced user, so I recovered my tabs.)

3. I would not have wasted my time installing this if the description had been honest and complete.

Clear Cache

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Only clears the standard caches reported by about:cache! The HOSTS file is still hidden by some hidden cache in Firefox. Refreshing a web page does not use HOSTS to fetch from the correct IP address. I clicked the icon, since I use F9 for another purpose. Firefox 56.0.2 (32-bit).

DNS Cache

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The GitHub files are missing (404).

Download Streamable Video

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Tried this out with a subscription video that used to work with VDH. Got error message: "Could not find video or photo "

Yes, I started playing the video so it could be found!

No good for me.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.1). 

Video Downloader professional

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The new version (for Firefox Quantum) doesn't work for me. It downloads a corrupted file that will not run in players. Also, when opening its Options, the following error message appears:

"File not found." The message is longer, but Firefox prohibits copying it.

During download, no progress bar is shown.

There is no way to submit a problem report.

This version seems not to have been tested!

Firefox 57.0 (64-bit)
Video Downloader version unknown

Load Tab on select

Windows XP? Doesn't work. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

On Windows XP, whenever your computer restarts, all your slow video tabs are reloaded. I call this a failure.

Disable HTML5 Fullscreen Alert

No effect on Firefox 42 Rated 2 out of 5 stars

No effect on Firefox 42.0 .

Toggle Word Wrap

Doesn't actually word wrap text Rated 1 out of 5 stars

While editing outgoing email, I frequently insert newlines. This can happen in a number of scenarios, such as pasting text that contains newlines.

I was hoping this addon would let me select some of the text, or all of the text by default, and actually remove the newlines and flow the text to the desired width (72 characters).

It doesn't do that. Apparently, it will only affect lines longer than the desired width. TB seems to have no way to format text within the desired width.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.9.1-signed).
