YT Clickbait Blocker

Would be great with a better built-in list. Strange opaque behavior. Not really configurable. Blocks good channels too. Puntuado con 3 de 5 estrellas

Cons:
• One can only control its “filter strength”. A “faceless” percentage setting , with no explanation to what it actually means exactly.
• This is a problem, because *the built-in clickbait list is silly*! It blocks good channels like PBS SpaceTime, but allows loads of super-crappy ones. (The latter is not surprising, with it being a blacklist system. Something every clickbait creator can circumvent in an automated way, and hence will be useless as soon as this add-on becomes popular enough.)
• There is no way to look at or alter the built-in filters, like e.g. with AdBlock. Why not just copy the same filter list dialog and system? Or actually, why not just integrate into Adblock (whichever kind you prefer) directly?
• EDIT: The Whitelist doesn’t seem to work. I whitelisted SpaceTime, and it is still grayed out after a refresh of my front page. So this may be a simple bug.

Pros:
• The whilelist and blacklist features are good. But I wish I could use them via the context menu instead of a video in a list, instead of having to go to the channel page.
• Works as advertised (when you ignore the strange choice of blocked channels).
• Channels can be dimmed instead of completely hidden. (Which is very important, with how silly the built-in list is.)

WebDAV for Filelink

This is rather pointless, as there already is NFS, SFTP, FTPS, … Puntuado con 1 de 5 estrellas

Just mount your server's share directory with sshfs, curlftpfs, WebDrive, and copy the file over with your bog-standard file manager, like a normal person and like it was intended.

Then the FileLink add-on part can be reduced to

s/$mountpoint/$url/

e.g.

s|/home/evilmachine/www/share.evilserver.com/files/|http://share.evilserver.com/|

In other words: Congratulations. You re-invented the wheel. *Badly*.

Greasemonkey

One of THE KEY scripts to take back the web! Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

To say that this is the most important enhancement browsers had, since the existence of add-ons, is not even an overstatement.
Finally, we can have the web our way, and make it look and behave like we want to. Finally we can fix bad but necessary websites, and even add features. And all with a tiny little bit of JavaScript. Anything easier than this would lose too much power. Anything more complicated is a waste of energy.

It might be an obvious idea, if you think about it. But like the egg of Columbus, you got to have the *idea* first.

Man, this sounds like one of those fake raving reviews… But I won’t force some made-up or irrelevant bad points into this, just to *seem* balanced. I’m honest: I find this add-on awesome and game-changing!

So please, unless you have nothing to complain about the web at all, and can’t imagine any feature you’d like any site to have… install this.

Edit: Oh, and don’t forget to add GreaseFire to this, so it shows you the available scripts for the site/page you are on. (Or go to userscripts.org.)

Social Fixer

*Currently* in a badly broken state. Puntuado con 3 de 5 estrellas

The add-on version showed me a bunch of JS errors as well, related to a library.
I would recommend the Greasemonkey version. But right now, it completely hangs my browser. :/

But don’t get me wrong: Most of the time, the Greasemonkey version worked nearly completely.
It is a dirty spaghetti solution though, that not only breaks every time something on FB is changed, but often doesn’t fix it in a very non-hackish way.
The former is not exactly the developer’s fault though. It’s the only choice one has.

So in general, I’ll simply install an older version of the Greasemonkey script, and not upgrade, until this mess is over.

switchasitype

Still a bit buggy. Puntuado con 3 de 5 estrellas

This is what I was looking for. But it still has a problem with dictionaries that are very similar. In my case it repeatedly uses the British dictionary when really I need the American one. Maybe there should be a way to set the preferred order in case of there being the same amount of errors in more than one. And another open question is what happens when the right dictionary just lacks some words that a wrong one has included.
Another thing I wonder, is why it seems to only check part of the text, instead of all of it. It seems to depend on the cursor position. Please remove that, or at least let me disable it.

If those things would be fixed, it would be perfect though.

WildFox Video Add-On

Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

While I highly support this to fight the Mozilla team’s false flag support for the media Mafia, it will go very wrong when someone uses (X)HTML5 video tags for something else than a media player. Like for example with overlays, post-processing, and truly embedded with SVG etc.
So this is a temporary workaround, unless Mozilla comes to its senses.
PROTIP: If you don’t use a piece of software/information because of a “copyright”/“patent”/“trademark”/“IP” claim, then they STILL won, and you are STILL acknowledging the “IP” lie, and hence are still supporting the organized crime, which in my eyes makes you a criminal too. The only right way is to NEVER let anyone blackmail you into obeying their lies and delusions PERIOD. Of which installing this plug-in is a small but good part. :)

Memory Fox

Only Windows = FAIL Puntuado con 1 de 5 estrellas

There is no reason, why a add-on that calls some Firefox-own API functions, would have to be Windows-only. It’s silly.
Please make this platform-independent.

Jiffy

Looks dead… Puntuado con 1 de 5 estrellas

The thing seems to be dead for a while now… Sadly… I liked it.
