CookieKeeper

Please provide a means to contact you Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

This addon is much improved version of it's outdated predecessor CookiesCuller, with many improvements as in the interface, as in features. And on top of that it's restartless.

@author: please provide some means to contact you. I'd like add support for your addon into my CookiesManager+, but so far your addon doesn't support any kind of integration. If you could add a listener or global object that would allow other addons communicate with yours it would be great.

Site Favicon in Urlbar

Puntuado con 1 de 5 estrellas

Great addon, but support is lacking.
This addon unacceptably affects (visually) options window of other addons. Also, disable/uninstall doesn't clean after itself, which requires browser restart (I'm surprised it passed Mozilla's review)
I've already sent two emails to the developer, in second email I even included fixed version of files, but no response received.

This addon deserves 5 stars, but I'm giving it only 1 start as an attempt to get some attention from developers. Will change it to 5 as soon as hear anything from them.

Dictionary Switcher

Puntuado con 1 de 5 estrellas

Very useful addon for people using multiple languages.Unfortunately neither developing, nor support seems to be active.I've sent email over 2 weeks ago with a patch for Firefox that fixes current issues with type64 and some other fixes, haven't received a reply nor it has been fixed.

I'm giving 1 star just to get attention, will update to 5 stars (what this addon actually deserves) after receiving any acknowledge from developers.

Add-on Compatibility Reporter

Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

This is a must-have addon, as for users, as for developers. In fact I believe this should be a built-in feature of the browser itself!

The only complaint I have, as developer I get quiet mixed reports with no explanation why addon doesn't work. If we could enforce leaving comment when addon being reported as "not working", it would really help developers.

Password Reuse Visualizer

Good idea, but can't use it Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

This is a good idea, however it's not usable if one has hundreds if not thousands stored login information/passwords.
All I see is a orange square with some tiny white dots and green and blue odd shaped "dots". These colored dots move at about once in 5-10 seconds. While the addon is active the browser is unusable. Perhaps async execution is in order here...


@Laurentj: It does require master password, but if you did not know that, once you entered your master password it will be remembered by Firefox until you close it, therefore anything that requires access to MP protected data will have unrestricted access. This is not addon's security issue, it's Firefox's itself! There are some extensions that would timeout MP after specified time.

Switch to Tab no more

Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

There is no option to turn off that feature - yes, but there is an easy work around - SHIFT or ALT key. Just highlight the "switch to tab" in the suggestion list and press SHIFT + ENTER to open in current tab or ALT + ENTER to open it in new tab.

Quick Search Bar

Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

I always wanted have an extension that would allow me type in text and instead of "go" button show search engine icons (aka temporary search engine selection).
However this extension does pretty much the same, but differently.
I'm fully satisfied with this method. And already recommended it to all my friends and family :)

P.S.
There is a little incompatibility issue with "Searchbar Autosizer", which resizes search bar after each page refresh. I'd assume it's SA problem...

SkipScreen -- Great Multi-Host download helper!

Puntuado con 3 de 5 estrellas

Good idea, bad implementation.
It works well...when it works...
Many supported websites often changes their pages and breaking Skipscreen, and unfortunately Skipscreen updates are not often enough to fix that.
Then, it's annoyingly shoving donations request up your thought at each time it's being activated.
Now that FF4 is out, the only way get to SkipScreen settings is via about:addons page, which is PIA when a website changed their pages and Skipscreen breaks the download possibility. We should be able perm and/or temp disable support for a website without leaving the website (aka without opening the settings) or at least we should be able access setting from the website.

Until Skipscreen add support for plugins that anyone can edit/update without need of wait for entire extension update personally I'll stick with Greasemonkey scripts...

AlertCheck

Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

It is a very useful extension, however in Firefox 4 alert boxes were changed and this extension replaces them with "old" type.
Because FF4 handles differently alert boxes this extension became obsolete.
Still it deserves 5 stars. Hope soon see an updated version.

AutoFormer

Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

Very good and useful addon. There is one little glitch though, which shows lots of _OnContextPopupShowing_ messages in the error console after right click on a web page. This glitch does not affect any usability, it only annoys these who often uses error console.

Until author fixes that issue, here is a little guide how to fix it yourself:
1) make sure your firefox is closed, open <your_firefox_profile_folder>/extensions/{5556F97E-11A5-46b0-9082-32AD74AAA920}/chrome/autoformer.jar with WinRAR or other archiver
2) edit autoformer.js file from it
3) find and remove two lines:
this.ddd("OnContextPopupShowing");
and
this.ddd("OnPopupShowing("+prefix+")");
4) save the file and put it back into autoformer.jar archive, overwrite the old one.

Auto Resize Image

Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

Just found this extension and quiet impressed. It's surely deserves 5 stars.

A few requests if I may:
1) ability resize inline images (these that were drag and dropped directly in the text)
2) ability see image dimensions/sizes (in a tooltip would be enough)
3) "advance" mode, where we could fine-tune the resizing process by selecting compression level from 0 to 100 and perhaps adding some sharpening filter with a preview.

StartupMaster

Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

Works perfectly! Having 40-50 tabs restored on startup and having 5-10 master password windows poping up over previous popup with half-entered password is major annoyance. This addon do what had to be done in the first place by Firefox team.
If I'm not mistaken in FF4 the bug is fixed already and this addon is not needed.

QuickRestart

Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

Thank you, very needed addon for extension developers.
Works great on FF 4.0b7pre

Searchbar Autosizer

Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

Very useful extension.
Unfortunately it doesn't work properly with SearchWP extension, when set to incrementally size. In some cases it starts increasing search box size until it reaches max size.
Until this is fixed I'm forced to disable Autosizer :(

P.S.
The author didn't respond to my emails regarding this issue...

OpenDownload²

Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

Very useful and well done extension.

There is a non-documented feature: this addon deletes downloaded files that are 1 day old or older when firefox starts.

The only thing this addon is missing is configuration where user can select the default folder where the files should be downloaded to. Right now it's hard coded to download into %TEMP%\mozOpenDownload\ folder
It also would be nice have an option to select how long the files should be kept before being deleted.

Still the addon deserves 5 stars without these features :)

Smart Bookmarks Bar (Atualizado)

Puntuado con 3 de 5 estrellas

This addon, the same as the original has a bug, that removes last bookmark(s) from the toolbar (temporary) when mouse over expands a current bookmark and last bookmark doesn't fit into the toolbar. It shows an icon that there is more items, but when you move your mouse towards that icon, away from current bookmark, it collapses the current bookmark, moves everything in place, but the "hidden" bookmarks are now gone.

The bug is easily reproducible:
resize FF window just enough so all the collapsed bookmarks fit into the toolbar, then move mouse over one of the bookmarks, it will expand, moving the last bookmars beyond visible bar, then when you move mouse away, the last bookmarks will be gone.

P.S. it's not nice give no credit to the original author of the addon, no matter how cute you might be!
Minus one star because of the bug and minus second star because of no credit to the original author.

Extra Fasterfoxx

Puntuado con 1 de 5 estrellas

This addon looks fishy. First all, if you visit author's homepage you'll notice that they are making cheats/hacks of some sort - that already slices any kind of trust to that person in half. Then when you look inside the addon, you'll see that it made so it's hard to understand - everything is in one line (hiding something?) - that kills the rest of the remaining trust...

Would not recommend installing this as it doesn't look like a legit addon.

Now Playing X

Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

Very good addon.
There is a weird bug that leaves music icon (note icon that shows before song) in Windows Live Messenger's main window of your buddies. That icon along with the media title removes properly from WLM, but for some reason in main window of your buddies your account shows with an empty music icon (icon without title), while in chat window it also removes properly.

But it seems that if in nowplayingx.js replace:
this.sendToImClient("now-playing-x-live-messenger.exe", "\\0Music\\1\\0\\0\\0\\0\\0\\0\\0");

with this:
this.sendToImClient("now-playing-x-live-messenger.exe", "\\0Music\\0\\0\\0\\0\\0\\0\\0\\0");

this problem is solved..

BarTab

Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

I just discovered this addon while was looking for something else, and can tell you, this is a MUST-HAVE addon if your Firefox restores tabs on startup...
I have a "gamer's" PC, which is fast and very fast internet line, but still, it takes about 40-60 seconds for firefox to startup and finish loading 50 tabs. With this addon it takes 5 seconds and it's done!!!
The only issue I've noticed is that I'm using "Tab Preview" addon (which shows a tab preview when cursor hovers over a tab) and it shows blank/white page until tab wasn't opened. Would be nice if BarTab hand an option to load the tab content when mouse over it or something that would work with preview tab...

TryAgain

Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

This extension is quiet useful, however I'd prefer have an per-site or at least per-tab option to enable/disable automatic re-try...
4 stars because of missing that feature.

P.S. works fine with FF3.6 if override the version check with Mr Tech extension (or manually)
