Le mie recensioni

Scriptish

Assegnate 3 su 5 stelle

I had used GreaseMonkey for years and at some point switched to Scriptish. Recently I installed a user script that was using MutationObservers. It didn't work at all with Scriptish. I switched back to GreaseMonkey and it worked fine.

Private Tab

Assegnate 5 su 5 stelle

This add-on is extremely useful for people who want to login to web sites such as Google with different user names, but don't want to have multiple windows open.

Questa recensione riguarda una versione precedente (0.1.5.1-signed) del componente aggiuntivo. 

HttpFox

Assegnate 4 su 5 stelle

This add-on is useful for seeing what traffic is being sent and received in Firefox which is quite useful. The only problem I've found so far is that it is completely incompatible with Roboform. Firefox 4 is unusable if both are installed and enabled.

Questa recensione riguarda una versione precedente (0.8.8.1-signed.1-signed) del componente aggiuntivo. 

RunDownload

Assegnate 5 su 5 stelle

It works well, the add-on should be cleaned up. You should remove the unused files from the xpi file, namely:

The .svn folder and nsOpenDownloadListeners.idl file from the components folder

The following files from the chrome.jar/content folder:

moz_overlays.*, moz_listeners.*, firefox_overlay.* and contents.rdf.in


Also you should clear out the mozOpenDownload folder on browser shutdown, especially when in Private Browsing Mode.

Actually it would be better to just have Firefox store the files temporarily itself since it deletes "opened" files at shutdown on it's own.

Questa recensione riguarda una versione precedente (1.0.2) del componente aggiuntivo.

DSLR Notifier

Assegnate 5 su 5 stelle

Since Ryan doesn't seem to be maintaining this anymore, I upgraded it for Firefox 3.0 and fix a number of bugs.

My version is at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/7639

CuteMenus - Crystal SVG

Assegnate 3 su 5 stelle

This is a nice add-on which adds icons to menus, but it has a number of compatibility problems.

1. It corrupts Norton Internet Security 2008's phishing toolbar.
2. It breaks Forebar Enhanced's options window
3. It breaks the Page Setup window in Firefox 3.0.

Also the author seems to have abandoned this extension and the home page never works.

If you run into any problems with other extensions, you'll most likely have to disable this extension, but if you don't use a lot of extensions and don't use the "Page setup" window in Firefox this is a nice add-on to have.

More Tools Menu

This is a great extension.

And now it works in Firefox 3.0 thanks to "user-submitted code". I wonder who that was. :)

Session Manager

Assegnate 5 su 5 stelle

Session Manager DOES WORK as advertised. I just opened 2 windows with 10 tabs each and caused Firefox to crash and Session Manager successfully restored all 10 tabs in both windows.

Since you are the only person (out of over 300,000 downloads) who claims that the crash recovery functionality isn't working, my guess is that instead of choosing to restore the crashed session, you restored an older session. Even if you did so, the crash session is still saved and you could have restored it.

If Session Manager didn't work, there would be a lot more people complaining here and in the support forum. Instead of calling for the extension to be removed, you should have posted in the support forum.

By the way, Firefox 2.0 has built in crash recovery for restoring tabs open on a crash. Session Manager just adds the ability to save and restore session and the ability to restore different sessions on a crash. If all you want is the ability to recover the last session on a crash, you don't need to install any extensions (Session Saver, Session Manager or otherwise).

Questa recensione riguarda una versione precedente (0.5.3.3) del componente aggiuntivo.
