There was an error while testing this site. Arvosteltu: 1/5 tähteä

Every scan I do results in this:

"There was an error while testing this site. This was likely due to Mozilla bug 420025. Please help us track this bug by either emailing us the url to this site or commenting on the bug. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to have this fixed soon."

And I don't get any results.

JavaScript Debugger

Arvosteltu: 3/5 tähteä

Incredibly useful, but has a terrible UI and is very buggy. If you need a debugger, this is the thing to use, but it's by no means perfect.

Hide Menubar

Arvosteltu: 3/5 tähteä

Works as advertised. It's kind of fidgety though: when you mouse over and then mouse out of the menu bar, it immediately disappears. I would prefer if it stayed for a moment so it doesn't disappear when I'm trying to use it. It should only disappear if I mouse out and don't mouse over again for X seconds.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.20091221). AdSense Monitor

Arvosteltu: 3/5 tähteä

It works, but the display leaves something to be desired. It shows five numbers and an icon, which is way more than I wanted. I would prefer to just see the amount earned, with the other information possibly in a tooltip. The ability to have data for multiple time periods at once would also be a welcome addition.

Arvosteltu: 1/5 tähteä

0.6 doesn't work either.

Error: elements.gtranslate_langpairs[fromLang].to[toLang] is undefined

Modify Headers

Very useful for developers, UI could use some work Arvosteltu: 4/5 tähteä

Very useful for web development, when you need to test sites with compression off, or with a certain referer, or not accepting XHTML, etc.. It sits there, out of the way, until you need it. It also has an option to have it always on, which could potentially be useful if you wanted to browse with different headers than default.

The UI could use some work. Double click on an item will enable/disable it, and I expected it to edit. You can't drag and drop to change the order, you have to use Move Up and Move Down. Despite these types of shortcomings, there don't seem to be bugs, so it's usable enough.

Add N Edit Cookies

UI needs work Arvosteltu: 3/5 tähteä

While being to edit cookies is a very useful function and this extension does it competently, the UI isn't too good. Instead of extending Firefox's existing cookie dialog with a button to allow for editing, it implements its own custom dialog. This custom dialog is obviously based on Firefox's dialog, but the ease of use isn't the same; for example, the filter text box requires you to press a button to filter or refresh, while Firefox's dialog does this automatically.

Google Reader Watcher

Needs tweaking Arvosteltu: 4/5 tähteä

A fairly useful extension to make it so you don't have to keep checking Google Reader for new messages. It could use a few tweaks.

-The icon should understand special clicks like Ctrl+Tab and open them appropriately.
-The extension should notice when you're on Google Reader and update its count as you read things.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.0.5). 

CookieMan Context

A useful little feature to have Arvosteltu: 5/5 tähteä

Chances are, if you want to delete cookies from a certain site, you also want to block them from every appearing again. CookieMan Context combines these two actions into one to save you time. This is the sort of non-obstrusive functionality that should be built in by default.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0). 


Needs to require less user intervention Arvosteltu: 3/5 tähteä

A few things would make this extension truly useful.

-If you're posting BBCode on one site and HTML on another, it's annoying to have to switch between them. It should remember that if I post in BBCode on one site, when I return to that site it should be back in BBCode mode.
-It should implement an auto-detection to pick the right format. Nothing would be fool proof, but I bet by looking at the HTML of a given page it would be easy to detect whether it was (for example) a BBCode forum.
-The toolbar should be above the textbox and not in the browser toolbar.

Firedoodle (0.6)

Hard to use Arvosteltu: 2/5 tähteä

An interesting idea, but not implemented that well. I had difficulty with its features. Drawing was hard because my system would slow down when I used Firedoodle, and so the mouse tending to "jump". While this was slightly annoying, this was the most usable feature. No matter what combination of clicking or dragging I used, I couldn't get the focus area to move or resize. Same with notes. I think it would also be useful to attach text to the draw tool or focus tool directly, so that people could be sure the two were related.

Popup Resize

An interface to something that already exists Arvosteltu: 2/5 tähteä

Does exactly what it says it'll do. This is simply an interface to the popup window preferences already available in about:config. While some would likely prefer changing these preferences in the Options dialog over about:config, these preferences are not something you'd want to toggle enough to warrant a UI after initially making the choices. You could install the extension, make your choices, and then uninstall, I suppose.

ViewFinder website heatmap

Not worth the status bar space Arvosteltu: 2/5 tähteä

All this extension does is give you a status bar icon to load the utility already available at . I don't believe being able to create a heatmap for a site is a common enough function to have it on the status bar. I'm also somewhat skeptical of the service since Feng-GUI is "an artificial intelligence service which simulates human visual attention" rather than a compilation of actual clicks.


Simple, effective, and useful Arvosteltu: 5/5 tähteä

A very simple extension that works right out the box, exactly as it should. All Flash gets replaced by the Flashblock logo, and clicking on the logo allows the Flash to load. If there's a site you frequent that has Flash content you want to see, a simple right-click gives you the option to add that site to the whitelist.

Whether you want to disable Flash to save bandwidth, to save CPU, or to save your sanity, Flashblock is the answer. I'd recommend it to anyone.

Live HTTP Headers

Maybe a little too simple Arvosteltu: 4/5 tähteä

A very useful tool for developers. It could use some easy-to-activate features like only listening on certain tabs, or quick toggling for types of requests (when you only care about HTML and not images and the like). It unfortunately doesn't allow text selection of the headers, either.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.13.1). 


Useful, but somewhat buggy Arvosteltu: 3/5 tähteä

Firebug has some very useful features, but some (ex: JavaScript debugger) are still buggy. The UI could use some work - the nested tabs take a while to get used to, the tree controls don't behave in an expected way (click to expand - good, click again does nothing - should contract), Ctrl+F should active the Firebug search and not Firefox's, etc. It also causes blank pages to load slowly, even if you used Firebug's Disable feature.

All in all, a very useful extension for web developers, but don't throw out DOM Inspector or Venkman just yet.

It's All Text!

Works exactly as it should Arvosteltu: 4/5 tähteä

Simple and intuitive. Gives its functionality when you want it, and stays out of the way when you don't. It's also easy for web and extension authors to maximize its power.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6.1).
