My Reviews

URL Fixer

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Maybe I had been doing too good of a job of entering in addresses- but this one probably has done nothing for years.

The last update was in 2012- meaning that things like Australis aren't a factor. It recently got tested- including with the very examples given on this very page and nothing happened at all. It was as if the extension wasn't even there.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.1.1-signed). 

Acronym Finder

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

In those certain situations this one really shines!

Dictionary - Reference.com

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Perhaps at a later date you could offer some alternatives to Dictionary dawt calm.

Reference - Reference.com

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This one is completely underrated.

Thesaurus - Reference.com

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This one is yet another underrated winner. BTW: it works perfectly fine on a superior browser: PaleMoon.

Custom Buttons

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The forums frequently have foul behavior, the site frequently goes down, a big portion of the buttons don't work- but still there are many goodies to be had.

IMO that still is enough to merit 4 stars for the capabilities that users can gain.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.0.5.8.1-signed.1-let-fixed). 

Page Colors & Fonts Buttons

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

OK, this one looks like a cool capability to have. However, upon installation both icons appeared twice in the menu. I put them on the toolbars and then they don't do anything when pushed. Also, nothing appears in the context menu either.

This is on PM 25.7 x64.

Please respond and lets see if there is a fix. I naturally will boost up the review and add some stars. Thank you!

I don't like posting this in the review area- but Codefisher is giving a 502 error and I don't see any other contact methods. I would like to talk it over and perhaps wipe out this review and write a better one sometime soon.

There are some issues with AAB. I tried it on both PaleMoon and FossaMail.

On FM it installed- but the button was missing. Then on restart it appeared and could be placed- but it couldn't do anything. On the next restart it appears to be working as intended.

On PM it installed immediately and the button was there to be placed. However, like initially on FM it couldn't do anything. I tried a couple of restarts and it just can't do anything.

Please look into it and I would very much like to boost the review up a notch. Thank you in advance!

Font Finder

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

My initial testing was too optimistic. There are some issues.

It's toolbar icon in the customization menu is broken(but not after being placed on the bars.) However, I wont risk keeping it there because buggy icons destroy custom setups.

It also is failing when tested on this very page. It is able to get the font in some sections- and in others it wrongly claims multiple element selections.

I like the extension- but it needs some work.

Stylish - Custom themes for any website

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

You did it! Stylish was always something handy and and it lives!

Good job!

ProfileSwitcher

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I gave it 4 stars because it is a part-timer- but a handy one at that.

It is true that we can manage profiles manually- but it is kinda clunky. Most of the people who I help with tech aren't hardcore techies and anything to make tech less geeky helps.

One person that I help out kept saying that I put too much stuff on her Palemoon. I started it back up with a bare profile. Although it would be possible to do this manually this way is just plain easier. As soon as she started loading pages blasting her out of her chair with ads and a browser that lost a whole bunch of capabilities she wanted the full setup back and never complained again...

Menu Filter

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

All it did was give a blank menu that could do absolutely nothing. Instant uninstall.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.1-signed). 

MailHops

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I just tested it out and it is working! Hooray!!!!

Ultra-technical types could have traced mails. With this your grandma can do it!

Welcome back!

Color Text Compose Buttons

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Somebody should have done this a LONG time ago!

Many times we were doing things like writing segments of our mails in other programs because things like strikethrough weren't available.

This is yet one more reason why rabid-release is such a disaster. TB has also had massive version # inflation and yet the simplest improvements aren't happening...

Lastly, I would request one feature modification: Please make the 5 text colors either changeable or removable through toolbar customization. For those of us who need fancy-schmancy color options the old color picker actually is easier.

Anyways, good job and thank you in advance if you consider my feature request.

Have a good weekend!

Unsubscribe from Mailing List

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The point was it was supposed to make unsubscribing easy. I gave it a spin and there was no button to be found anywhere. It was as if the whole AO wasn't even there.

Spoof Detector

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I gave it a try and I could barely find it at all. Apparently it adds a context menu entry to check and then it reports back in (an unknown to me) Asian language.

With some more development and language support- maybe. Until then- no.

CookieFast

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

There is a rival add-on(CWWB) that clearly changes between green and red and I was hoping that this one would be similar because that one isn't available for Email.

Although this one can pull up the cookie manager the fact that hitting the button doesn't easily change permissions or have a granny-proof color system shows that it isn't ready for prime time- at least yet.

With maybe an update or two this could easily be a winner but those earlier 5 star reviews jumped the gun.

Posting Style Enforcer

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

For 1000 years the fact that things could constantly jump around made replies almost unreadable sometimes. Why didn't they include something like this long ago as standard?

It is good to see that someone stepped it up!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2). 

Get/Send-Button

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Didn't it used to come with the option of extra buttons? Without those it is a handy part-timer for folks with multiple accounts- but nothing special- and kinda buggy.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.9.1). 

Highlighter

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It is pretty darn simple. You highlight the text, pick the color and you are in highlight heaven!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6.5).
