Mes critiques

Redirector

Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

Simple, straightforward and useful.

(ESCapeFromThemGIFs)

HotKey not configurable Noté 3 sur 5 étoiles

The ESC key is often used by JS code on some pages.

Toggle animated GIFs

Updated review Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

Issues fixed, review modified accordingly.

Left to do:
1) Pull request created to support the "Pause" key
2) Add a toggle button

Since the dev is responsive, I have no problem giving it a 5-star now, knowing that the remaining issues will be addressed.


Old review:

This is a good extension, but I am giving it a 3-star review due to several problems. When they are addressed, I will adjust my review accordingly.

1) It does not work well on Tumblr, in particular on the "archive" pages. The Ctrl-M hotkey works but not the
Example: <a style="background-color:#CCCCCC" class="linkificator-ext" href="http://animated-gifs.tumblr.com/archive" title="Linkificator: http://animated-gifs.tumblr.com/archive">http://animated-gifs.tumblr.com/archive</a>

2) The hotkeys are not remappable.
For example, I would prefer to use something like Shift-Esc, Ctrl-F1 or even Pause
instead of Ctrl-M, but I cannot.

3) The Shift-M hotkey does not work if you set FF to start search when typing. Now, if I could reassign it to CTRL-something instead...

Scriptish

Hijacks and rewrites URLs even when scripts are disabled Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles

userscripts.org is currently inaccessible.
http://userscripts.org:8080 can be used instead
But scriptish hijacks the url and forcefully changes it to https, which does not work on those pages.

What the hell???
I'm back to GM.

Memory Restart

Reports incorrect settings Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles

The CPU issue appears to be fixed but now the reported memory consumption is completely wrong.

I have 2 FF windows open, one shows 707MB, the other 706MB. about:memory reports 1277MB private. Process explorer shows 1319.

Memory Restart

Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles

Unusable on FF 26.
CPU jumps to 100% every several seconds.

Console shows this:
refreshMemory
usingOldMemoryReporter returnValue = false
refreshMemoryNew
refreshMemoryNewCallback aProcess=, aUnsafePath=resident, aKind=2, aUnits=0, aAmount=540528640, aDescription=Memory mapped by the process that is present in physical memory, also known as the resident set size (RSS). This is the best single figure to use when considering the memory resources used by the process, but it depends both on other processes being run and details of the OS kernel and so is best used for comparing the memory usage of a single process at different points in time.
refreshMemoryCommon memoryUsedInMB=515

Once I disabled this addon, the problem stopped.

Additional Chat Protocols for Thunderbird

Don't see the difference.

Google Redirects Fixer

Breaks sites Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles

There are two problems with this extension:

1) It does not remove all redirects.
For example, using Google's search-by-image: http://tinyurl.com/orq5aqqThe redirect on the images are not removed.

2) More importantly, it completely breaks sites that use google search internally.
For example, https://stackexchange.com/search?q=regex

Linkificator

A solid 5 Stars Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

This review is for 1.4.0 and replaces my previous reviews.

Linkificator is an actively supported extension and shows steady improvement between versions. The developer is responsive, takes bug reports seriously and is open to suggestions.

While there is still some room for ongoing improvement, I am comfortable giving Linkificator the highest 5-star rating. Also, I would like to thank the author for the add on and the ongoing support.

Good Job, Marka Pola!

Edit: 1.5.0 took care of most false positives.

Linkificator

4.5 stars Noté 4 sur 5 étoiles

This review is for 1.3.0 and replaces my previous reviews.

Linkificator is an actively supported extension and shows steady improvement between versions. The developer is responsive, takes bug reports seriously and open to suggestions (that is not to say that the developer will always agree with your ideas, but they will be considered).

In general, this version feels snappier than previous ones, and more usable with the automatic reparsing on on/off and the addition of left/middle/right-click recognition (but see below).

I would like to thank the author for the add on and the ongoing support.

Idiosyncrasies and problems:
* The right-click/left-click operations feel reversed. The expectation is for the left-click to perform the main operation and for the right-click to pop up the menu (ideally, all 3 clicks would be customizable with a "menu" being one of the options).
* False positives (for example: a score of 8.5/10 or a similar math expression would get linkified).

Areas for future improvement:
* Having a separate on/off state for each window/tab (like Linkification).
* Automatic reparsing on Javascript events that reload or hide/show parts of a page (case in point: slashdot discussions).
* Right-clicking on toolbar icon should present a menu with common operations (like Linkification).
* More compatibility improvements (see for example http://piro.sakura.ne.jp/xul/textlink/index.html.en#testcases).
* Balancing aggressive detection, false positives and speed is difficult. Perhaps having several modes (quick, safe, aggressive) will solve that.

To summarize, I would like to give it a better than a 4-star review, but I feel it is not quite yet at the 5-star point. Although, with the accumulation of steady incremental fixes, it is getting pretty close -- I have a feeling that I will amend the review and the mark soon.

AutoPager

No support Noté 3 sur 5 étoiles

The add-on works most of the time but there are annoying issues and no support on the forum (apart from spam messages)

Search by Image for Google

Workaround Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

A previous reviewer wrote:"Does not work with FF18, it just opens up the Google Homepage and no results (even the input box is locked)."

I noticed that behaviour. It happens very rarely, but it is annoying when it does as all subsequent searches will fail.Fortunately, I found a workaround:
Whenever that happens, type something into the google input box and hit enter. Even if the box is messed up and does not show the typed characters, it will still work.
Apparently this will cause the add-on to resume working.

Edit: Stopped happening.

Greasefire

Noté 2 sur 5 étoiles

Not maintained anymore.

TinEye Reverse Image Search

Cannot compete with Google Noté 2 sur 5 étoiles

I started using the TinEye reverse search a long time ago. At the time, they offered a unique and useful service. The add-on was well done, the DB was growing and there was no competition.

Then, Google introduced their own reverse image search. For a while I was running add-ons for both services and checking images on both, but it became evident that TinEye cannot compete with Google's offering. About a month ago I uninstalled the TinEye add-on.

TL;DR version: Use one of the Google reverse search add-ons instead.

Search By Image (by Google)

Buggy Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles

The "hovering" behaviour cannot be turned off in 1.0.7, which effectively hijacks links on small images.

Toolbar Buttons

Noté 2 sur 5 étoiles

The button maker does not work (fails with GW timeout).
The forum is down.

Looks like the developer does not care about this add-on anymore and it is going on pure inertia.

gTranslate

Not working Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles

Clicking on the button mostly does nothing
