Mis revisiones

UnloadTab

Good Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

Works well. Lacking a few minor things, like a warning when unloading a tab in which you've typed text into an input box.

Redirect Remover

Replaced by RedirectCleaner Puntuado con 1 de 5 estrellas

Replaced by RedirectCleaner, but Clean Links is better (or Redirect Bypasser if you have CPU cycles to waste).

RedirectCleaner

No documentation, buggy Puntuado con 2 de 5 estrellas

It works, but with issues: There's no documentation explaining whitelists/blacklists, and in any case they don't seem to work. There's also a bug where having a whitelist/blacklist stops clicking the toolbar button from actually disabling the add-on for a page.

Gallery Plus

Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

Works great, on list or gallery view.

No more Facebook redirect

Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

Does what it says.

Turn Off the Lights

Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

A great improvement for watching video. Professionally done.

Send Tab URLs

OK... Puntuado con 2 de 5 estrellas

Multiple Tab Handler is superior (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/multiple-tab-handler/)

Cookies Manager+

Useful Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

Useful but be careful not to use Cookies Manager+ to delete all your cookies - it's extremely slow (100% CPU for several minutes before I gave up) - whereas Firefox's built-in function is instant.

StretchClock Break Reminder - Desk Yoga

Takes up a lot of room Puntuado con 1 de 5 estrellas

It would be great except for the fact that it takes up a lot of room in the add-ons bar and can't be moved.

FormFox

Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

Doesn't work on all forms, but sometimes is better than never.

SSLGuard

Too difficult Puntuado con 2 de 5 estrellas

Am I right in thinking this is only useful for people who don't notice that they're not on an HTTPS page?

Seems this isn't quite ready yet, given the things it breaks, or worth the added complexity...

CryptoFox

Bad UI Puntuado con 1 de 5 estrellas

The crappy UI means I'd stick with the less-featured Fire Encrypter (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/fire-encrypter/). A toolbar isn't an appropriate interface (especially as the only interface) for a tool that isn't in constant use - besides which the text input/output box should be more than one line high.

Master Password+

Nice Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

Does stuff that should be built in to Firefox. However doesn't hide the titlebar if you're using an add-on that changes it (eg. Customize Titlebar https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/customize-titlebar/)

KeePass Helper

Good but there is better Puntuado con 2 de 5 estrellas

Customize Titlebar has more options https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/customize-titlebar/

Search Engine Security

Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

For better privacy, block all referrers with Redirect Remover https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/redirect-remover/

JS Switch

Puntuado con 1 de 5 estrellas

Use NoScript instead, it's much better for privacy and security

Targeted Advertising Cookie Opt-Out (TACO)

Good for newbies Puntuado con 3 de 5 estrellas

Good for newbies who want a simple privacy upgrade. For real effectiveness you need more advanced addons. I recommend Beef Taco https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/beef-taco-targeted-advertising/ along with NoScript and others https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/collections/gracefool/privacy/

The website http://www.abine.com/preview/taco.php is misleading: Flash cookies are deleted along with other cookies since Firefox 4, so you don't need that feature, and as long as you allow Javascript on the page, you can be tracked and cookies can be re-created http://gracefool.com/how-you-have-no-real-privacy-on-the-internet

Beef Taco (Targeted Advertising Cookie Opt-Out)

Simple and good Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

Has worked for me under every version of Firefox with WinXP. And Firefox doesn't delete the cookies (despite the 27 Sep review).

You can force add-on compatibility by adding a new boolean preference in about:config "extensions.checkCompatibility.9.0" and setting it to false (Where "9.0" is your major Firefox version, put a "b" on the end if you're using a beta).

IDND

Nice Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

Great extension, should be built-in. As of Firefox 9.0.1 (which it *does* work with), the icon can be moved around, so you can put it next to the address-bar.

IDND

Needs update Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

Good addition that does what it says, but should be updated to use the new-style statusbar icon so it can be moved around.
