Mes critiques

Re-Pagination

doesn't work Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles

Tried on Google and elsewhere, doesn't work, selecting repagination has no effect. Maybe conflicts with another addon, maybe incompatible with Palemoon 25.x. A direly needed tool to combat multi-page clicksuckers, but non-functional.

PubPeer

Great tool for keeping track of article reliability issues raised at Pubpeer Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

Fails on a few articles, but I'm giving 5 stars as it's rather useful, no-restart, works on Palemoon etc.

WeSEE:Search

Noté 2 sur 5 étoiles

"A username and password are being requested by http://weseesearch.com.
The site says: "Picollator""

SelectionSK

Noté 4 sur 5 étoiles

Great while it lasted. Lots of useful functions. Doesn't work with Palemoon 25.x however.

When it worked, I would've preferred right mouse click menu or option to use it. Maybe I didn't find it.

QuickFrame

Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

Excellent tool, esp. for spammy websites. Works with Palemoon 25.x

dlTracker

Noté 2 sur 5 étoiles

Great idea but doesn't seem to work, verified by redownloading a file a few times.

Add-ons Manager Context Menu

Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

Firefox default is so dysfunctional, this is a welcome change.

More Compact GMail

Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles

Doesn't work properly with current versions.
I haven't tried the "basic HTML" gmail layout but in "full" layout all the essentials, like buttons for message delete, archive and other actions get hidden. Gmail settings button also gets hidden.

Cleanest Addon Manager

Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

Firefox default addon manager is so totally dysfunctional that this addon is indispensable.

I was wondering though, is it possible to add normal browser window functions like "copy text", "search text" etc as FF by default makes it impossible to e.g. find the addon's homepage at addons.mozilla.org (unless addon author has not provided it)?

Mozilla Archive Format, with MHT and Faithful Save

Noté 4 sur 5 étoiles

BTW, when loading and re-saving a saved MAFF, char-encoding metadata gets duplicated:

<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

Mozilla Archive Format, with MHT and Faithful Save

Noté 4 sur 5 étoiles

If the addon saves a page based on "browser state", why does it add back parts removed by Adblock element hider?

(The support page is down so I'm reporting here).

This addon is one of the reasons I still use FF/Palemoon.
Issues mentioned in previous review mostly persist though.
Adding back removed elements wasn't reported before, I think.

Google Traducteur, Traduction Web, ImTranslator

Noté 2 sur 5 étoiles

Highly functional so far, and identifies itself properly in the menus (but not in the bubble), so I don't have to do detective work to hunt down what addon a button or menu item belongs to.

However the bubble... the soddin' thing inserts itself into the page source code, even with the bubble disabled. So all pages I save (with MAFF addon) have IMtranslator code inserted in them (and mixed into original code without any separators, so you have to count tags when deleting it manually in text editor).

The bubble always popped up at the wrong time and place so I disabled it quickly anyway... didn't expect it would still insist upon hanging around, forever, within saved pages.

Menu Editor

indispensable but with issues Noté 3 sur 5 étoiles

(Based on older FF, probably doesn't work in newer ones)Extremely indispensable, but with issues, seems to add a layer of processing rather than just changing menus, so original unedited menu flickers for a moment, and then gets redrawn with edited one. With higher CPU loads this may be quite slow.Search context menu editors override it, menueditor doesn't "see" their menu items. Probably another stage of processing.Settings should be stored in menuedit.rdf I think, if someone is looking to copy/backup settings.My rating may not be fair :), it reflects the end result but it's more likely an issue with Firefox's poor UX/UI and extension API. A browser shouldn't need 40 addons to be *almost* usable.

Wrap Switcher

Noté 2 sur 5 étoiles

Unfortunately only does what it says and not an inch more... works in text boxes, but not in web pages where the problem is more severe.Have to switch back to Opera some day I guess...

Wiktionary and Google Translate

broke when I updated Firefox to v20.2 Noté 2 sur 5 étoiles

Looks like it broke when I updated Firefox to v20.2 (Palemoon actually). Stays that way so far. Haven't managed to revive it, tried uninstalling recent addons etc.

Google by Image Restartless

Noté 3 sur 5 étoiles

Disappeared completely when I updated to FF (Palemoon) v20.2. Tried a few tweaks, including reinstalling it, this worked in the past, but no effect so far.

When it worked, it never showed the context menu when viewing a plain image rather than HTML page with an image embedded. Tineye reverse image search works under that condition so it should be doable.

Bing Results Remover

Noté 4 sur 5 étoiles

Great idea. Same for Google would be great, google is peddling more and more garbage. It used to have a blocklist but it was cumbersome, didn't seem to have any effect much of the time, and is now disabled anyway to peddle their Chrome browser with said functionality available.

Save Session

Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles

The name is misleading, it just adds a button to disable session saving without going into browser options? Other functionality seems to be the same as Firefox default.

I really could use a tool that forces session save at demand without exiting.

Google by Image Restartless

Noté 4 sur 5 étoiles

Stopped working recently - no context menu item shows up for images.Since the "Add to Firefox" button was active here, I clicked it and it installed again without any mention of it being already installed. For a second the context menu activated. And then disappeared again.So I clicked the Add-to button here again, and the context menu works again, briefly.Seems to be self-destructing somehow, although it remains visible in the Add-Ons window.

Re: version - always the latest. Somehow the problem disappeared by itself. Firefox has a life of its own and its good and bad days.

SmartVideo For YouTube

Works some of the time Noté 3 sur 5 étoiles

Stopping autoplay works some of the time. Might be a bug in Firefox itself, as it does crash a lot and for a long time before a crash, or in otherwise poorer performance conditions (like when Firefox gets very slow) plugins generally function more poorly.

Preference for higher resolutions seems to work reliably.

It now also gives an error message "Error: Adblock (or similar extension) is known to interfere with SmartVideo. Please add this url to adblock whitelist" without specifying what URL to add. Adblock DOES have youtube-specific filters active, in Easylist and elsewhere, but I won't disable them at random and without a good reason.
