My Reviews

Duplicate Tab

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've been happily relying on this simple little workhorse since it was first brought to my attention that such a basic feature was missing from firefox. It does exactly what it says, with no excess baggage.
FF terminated it with prejudice, though, so https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/duplicate-in-tab-context-menu/?src=userprofile seems like a decent replacement.

Disable Add-on Compatibility Checks

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It had worked for 13, but got disabled in 14.0.1. The other preference, extensions.strictCompatibility can still override all this add-on's work, making it useless in that situation, and you still have to go in to about:config to re-enable your add-ons. So, this add-on is only a partial solution - at least this dev tried and I respect that. Still, a miss is as good as a mile. Why is mozilla so stupid about add-ons? I am not even sure how extensions.strictCompatibility keeps coming back. It's ridiculous.

DOM Inspector

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

DOMi has some bugs right now, but I'm giving it 5 stars on credit. If you write HTML, you owe DOM Inspector a debt of gratitude whether you've benefited directly from DOMi or not. Back when Firefox was just "Mozilla" or "Phoenix," DOMi was built-in and I believe it was the first of its kind. The HTML/CSS/javascript debugging it provided were revolutionary, and critical to bringing web development out of the 90s. This increased visibility made understanding all but automatic, and allowed everyone to raise their expectations. Web development used to include a lot of trial-and-error, and now you only have to resort to that when you want to, or when someone makes you try and support IE.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.4).
