My Reviews

Tab Numbers

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Doesn't work at all with Firefox 55.x, so it's completely useless. Removed.

NewsFox

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Is it possible to make this work with FF 57+, and if so, do you plan to do so?

More Tools Menu

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This addon is one of the dealbreakers for me to use FF in the future.

Is it possible to make it work with FF 57+, and if so, do you plan to do so?

More About

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This addon is one of the dealbreakers for me for further using Firefox because I'm using it quite a lot.

So, is it possible to make it work as a WebExtension, and if so, do you plan to adapt it?

DownThemAll!

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I have one download folder with different subfolders for videos, audio files, pictures, various text files (txtx, docx, odt, pdf...) and binaries (programs, installers, archives...)
Problem is, DtA! puts ALL files into ONE folder (i.e. the download folder) and I have to sort them manually, which can be tedious.

So is it possible to use filters to also sort downloaded files in different folders?
For instance: download .mp4/.mkv/.avi/.flv in "downloads\video", .mp3/.ogg/.wav in "downloads\audio",
.txt/.pdf/.docx/.odt files into "downloads\text", and .msi/.exe/.zip/.rar into "download\bin"?

I already tried to adjust the regex accordingly, but that didn't work.

TORPEDO - TOoltip-poweRed Phishing Email DetectiOn

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

First, the tooltip is absolutely useless and actually annoying. I'd prefer a context menu entry to let me check a link when *I* want to, because I don't click on a link when I'm not perfectly sure that it's legit.

Second, when I explicitely click on a legitimate link, I want it to open in my browser, no questions asked. TOrPeDO prevents that and does nothing, not even warn me why it prevents links from opening.

So in the end, TOrPeDO does nothing for security, but only creates confusion because it keeps interfering with my wetware security measures (aka brain) because I keep asking myself every time "did TOrPeDO actually what it should or is it just overreacting again?").

I tried it for two months now, and it didn't help anything but kept making trouble and made working more cumbersome, so off it goes from my Thunderbird.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.1). 

Mouse Gestures Suite

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I really like this Addon so I would also like to use it in Thunderbird. Would that be possible?

I'm so accustomed to mouse gestures nowadays that I always try unsuccessfully to close mail tabs and go one mail forward or back with them in TB *g*.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.3.1).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Mnenhy

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Mail headers aren't shown anymore, central Inbox, Sent etc. for all accounts is empty, sometimes it's even not possible to select anything in the menu bar.

Deactivating the addon instantly cured all of these problems, and I also tried deactivating all other addons except Mnenhy. WIth Mnenhy active, TB shows the faulty and erratic behaviour which instantly stops when I deactivate the addon.

RequestPolicy Continued

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works most of the time, but sometimes after I select "Allow requests from *.[website]" (I don't know if this is the exact phrasing in English because I'm using FF with German language settings), the site isn't reloaded but only an empty tab is shown and the history of the tab is empty, so I have to search for the website's URL in the browser history.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.beta11.1). 

Mouse Gestures Suite

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I was using All-in-One Gestures for years, but since FF43+ it doesn't work anymore, especially the feature I'm using most frequently: closing the current tab (NOT "document", mind you. Tab).
Closing the current document is no alternative, because then FF is closed when the last tab is closed, which I don't want at all (and which BTW also breaks the options of Tab Mix Plus and Configuration Mania to *not* close FF after the last tab has been closed).

So, kudos to the author of Miouse Gestures Suite for providing the perfect substitute/successor for a once great add-on.

Bookmarks Checker - check for bad links

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This Addon doesn't show where the booksmark duplicates are, but just which URL with which title is a duplicate.
So you never know which bookmark in which folder you'll be deleting, which will just make a mess out of ones collection.

I won't give it more than one star until that oproblem is fixed because that feature is crucial.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.3.0.1-signed). 

RequestPolicy

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

After using it for four months, I deinstalled this addon at long last, because I'm finally sick of it.
It seriously lacks a blacklist, which means requests you block all the time show up with every new site. And that's just tedious, because you always have to remember which requests you want to deny. Because when you go through the list to allow/deny, the list is completely mixed up and you have to pick and try one by one. As of now, I'm sick of having to go through the same trial-and-error routine on every second or third site just to have the site displayed as it should be.

There are similar addons like e.g. Ghostery where you don't spend half of the time to look if the sources and targets of a request are legitimate or not. And where you don't need half of the time to have a website displayed as it should be - instead of having a bit of text on a white background.

This addon means too much work and too much inconvenience for far too less benefit. So, after wasting very much time and effort for four months, I'm done with it.
For good.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.27.1-signed.1-signed). 

Update Notifier

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I used to wait if this addon gets an update because I really liked it. But as it is abandonware for over two years now, I guess it's time to let it go.
And I find it a bit disturbing that there is still a button to donate. If the author doesn't care about this addon anymore and lets it rot, he should maybe have the decency to remove that.

I'm now giving this one a try: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/addon-update-checker/

MR Tech Toolkit

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

...to me, it seems like this add-on is simply dead and gone. The last version if Firefox where MRTT worked without problems was FF 3.6 or 3.7, this Add-On hasn't been updated for more than a year now.
Looks like this add-on is now abandoned for good, because there's not even any update from mrtech about the status or what's going on. A real pity.
