It's a small but distinguished list. What this addon does should be standard fare in Firefox itself, but until/if it is, this is a fantastic addon. It's much more convenient, and less resource intensive than opening a new private window.
Now I always close the tab and open a new one when going from one thing/site to something else. I'm a Sandboxie user too and now find myself having to close my browser/sandbox less often, and instead just close out my tab and open a new one.
Great idea here...
People saying they have to reboot Firefox altogether are incorrect. But for the changes to stick you do indeed have to apply them twice, so I can understand why this misconception got started. I'm guessing most people are referring to having to change the cipher restriction to 128 and stronger, and uncheck the TLS 1.1 & 1.2 only box for many pages to load (doing this will make basically every site work btw). After making those changes and hitting "Apply Changes Now", then OK, and then refreshing the page... nothing changes. You have to go into those settings again, click Apply Changes Now again, then OK again, and then refresh the page yet again for the changes to stick. Then you're good to go. You do not have to restart Firefox. Fix this and the extension earns 5 stars in my book.
And personally I find the amount of sites that won't work with the settings maxed out over-exaggerated. I only have to do this with a few sites here and there. And if you max out the settings you should expect this. Blame the site, and not this addon for having lax encryption standards.
I like that the grading has high standards. It will encourage sites to enforce such standards as well. I wouldn't doubt some of the nasty reviews are by site admins feeling slighted by this. But it's for a greater good and Calomel shouldn't back off of this position.I've yet to see a site receive a perfect score under this new system. And it's always the "MAC" section lacking, grabbing an 8/20 at best, never have I seen better. But we shouldn't solve this problem by lowering our standards, but by improving our results.
If I could only pick 1 addon, this would be it, edging out NoScript. But it's only as good as the subscription lists you use. I recommend, at minimum: "EasyList", "EasyPrivacy", and "Malware Domains". The rest is different strokes for different folks. I don't do social networking. No Twitter or Facebook, and get tired of seeing buttons asking me to link everything I ever do on the net to those accounts. I only use Youtube, and even then sparingly, and only watch not make vids. So I use a sub list called "Antisocial" as well that cuts out a lot of those syncs that irritate me. Those 4 only. To large a blacklist can slow you down, so don't go overboard.
And uncheck all the slow filters too... the ones with snail symbols to the right of them. And IMO everyone should be made aware of the check box in the bottom left hand corner to allow "some" unobtrusive advertising. It's up to you whether to utilize it or not, but people should be aware that it's there anyhow, and allow them to make an informed decision. As opposed to trying to keep them oblivious to it. I personally uncheck it.
A bit cumbersome though. I personally remove the stuff from my context menu up top, and use only it's ability to right click on links to scan them for malware before opening the page. It's very handy in this capacity for links you're not too sure about, along with WOT. There's also value in being able to scan downloads before you actually download them, as you can see via an option in the download box "Scan with Virus Total". And then only after verifying it safe, download it, or cancel if not. But as a Sandboxie user that uses VT Hash Check before unsandboxing new files introduced to my box that has no value to me. But to most it would. So this thing has several purposes, and is a great addon. But to me personally I only really use the right click on links feature to verify them safe before going there. For those times your "buddies" post links in chat rooms, forums or whatnot you're not certain are safe... hit it up with this first, along with WOT.
Great addon, but with 1 flaw. I wish you could set it up to block bad sites without having to deal with a popup window for EVERY single site you visit... even though you have popups disabled.
Also, the page takes the liberty of loading in the background as you get the popup asking whether to allow or leave the site anyway. That shouldn't be the case. It should be blocked until you make your decision one way or the other. It's a good thing I have NoScript and ABP in place too.
Fix these things and it gets 5 Stars.
This is my favorite cookie managing addon. I've been using it since it's previous incarnation, the original, "CookieSafe", and CS Lite.
My 1 and only gripe is, as someone else pointed out, the pointless drop down arrow. It serves no purpose, so I wish they could just axe it. No big deal really, but I'm a bit OCD, so I'd rather it just wasn't there. This gets 5 Stars otherwise.
So get on that... ; )
Great addon. One of my "must haves" along with ABP, NoScript, and CS Lite Mod. Increases page load times by blocking elements, pictures & unwanted clutter. Not to mention cross site tracking.
One of the best security addons there is. Great work devs... keep at it.
Is there any difference between this addon and simply ticking the box that says: "Tell sites that I do not want to be tracked" in the Firefox options? And if so, what?...I try to limit my addons as much as possible, if there's an integrated solution already, to save resources (i.e. Memory).Thanks in advance. If I hear the answer I'm hoping for I'll change my rating for the better.
Edit: In light of the fact that I haven't received a response (it's now 5/31/13... I'm assuming that my original assumption was correct. This addon isn't needed with the internal setting in Firefox's options I mentioned doing the same thing.
When used in conjunction with a tool called VT Hash Check this addon was so useful. It would scan a new download automatically with 40+ diff. engines. I even tossed my real-time AV, it no longer being of any use. But ever since the FF 20 update it no longer works.And I shouldn't HAVE to change disable Private Browsing mode to get it to work. That is a security concession I'm not willing to make. I never needed to to get it to work before. So I just removed this addon instead and now use VTHC manually before removing the new files from Sandboxie.Please fix this thing so it can be used without making concessions which lessen your security in the process. It used to be my favorite addon. Now it's of no use to me.
Thanks so much for continuing support on this great add-on! I tried to use others and none of them felt right. This is NoScript for cookies to me. Works great on FF 3.6.22, and I hope it continues to. I'm old school.
Major props to you wantora!
