Download Statusbar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

PLEASE update for FF 26+!

Not only does it show you whatever you want to know about your downloads' progress, but it does so in a small, unobtrusive manner that shows you your data without ever getting in the way!

Furthermore, I'm able to scan every file I download without having to manually call my virus scanner! Download Statusbar does it for me.

There is so much more to this little, out of the way extension that you'll find, like me, that you can't live without it!

Add-on Compatibility Reporter

"Working Fine" button?!? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

What happened to the "Working Fine" interface?!?

It used to be that each add-on had a pulldown menu, with which you could report that an add-on worked just fine with this version of Firefox or, if not, explain any problems!

NOW, however, that pulldown menu is GONE! Instead, each add-on has a "Report Issue" button, which allows you to explain the issues that are preventing it from working correctly.

I'm sorry, but to me the beauty of this extension was the ability report that extensions that were thought to no longer work were, in fact, working well! It's far more likely that the folks at Mozilla, and the add-on developers, KNOW which add-ons are broken in a particular Firefox release!

Being able to report that that their add-ons still worked was KEY! I can't imagine why that was removed!

NOTE: If the "Yes it still works!" reporter was moved somewhere that's not obvious, PLEASE enlighten me!

EDIT: Well, whata you know! There IS a separate interface for reporting that an add-on works! Changing my rating from 3 stars to 4 stars. The old version was definitely a 5 star add-on! This version still loses a star, because SEPARATING the Still Works and Report Issues sections is just silly! The pulldown menu that let you do either made much more sense!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.1). 

Color Folders

It's back! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Living without this extension has sucked!

I have a TON of mail subfolders! I have created a hierarchy of mail categories, with filters that move every email I receive into the proper folder. If you're like me, you'll find that being able to assign colors to different subfolder categories will make finding the one you need, in a LONG list of folders, faster and easier!

I didn't realize how much I appreciated this extension until it stopped working! SO glad it's back!

Color Folders

Now that I've used it, I can't live without it! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Subject line says it all. I really hope the fix can be integrated SOON! I understand WHY the moderators would have deleted the fix, since AMO evaluates add-ons, but they should have at least contacted the author of the add-on before doing so!

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

Quote Colors

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The compatibility value should be changed for this add-on, as it works PERFECTLY in TB 24.0!

This is a great extension! It makes reading messages with multiple replies SO much easier, as you can see exactly where one level ends and another level starts.

Stop counting ">"s! Use this instead!

What about:..

A Goody Bag for your Browser Rated 4 out of 5 stars

As the title says, this is like getting a goody bad for your browser! It includes 'about:' pages that I'll bet most people don't even know exist. I'd give this 5 stars but for one issue...

The description of this addon on the AMO site makes no sense. I actually had to install it to see what it does, since I couldn't figure it out from the description!

This isn't meant as an insult!

Rather, I say this because I think a lot more people would wind up using this very cool addon if they knew what it did! Surely there's someone who can re-translate the German so that the English is more understandable.

Thanks for a great addition to FF!

MS Office 2003 JB Edition

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Just what I've been looking for! A clean theme that uses actual color (other than black or grey) and that employs smooth color gradients for a simple, yet beautiful, 3D effect that isn't obtrusive!

Any chance of making variants using the other colors from the original Outlook 2003 themes? I believe that, in addition to blue, that one also had green and silver varieties.

Edit: I'm not using RSS feeds, but near as I can tell, this IS now working with TB 17.0 Everything else is working perfectly.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.17.2). 

Add to Search Bar

Indispensable Rated 5 out of 5 stars

If there's one thing that Firefox could do better, it's how it deals with adding entries to the search box. While it may be trivial for some, others, like myself, find it frustrating, fighting to get the syntax just right! (That's assuming, of course, that the user knows how to this at all.)

Enter this small, but indispensable extension, which lets me add whichever search entries I want, without the hassle of fighting with XML!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0). 

Web2PDF Converter

Where's the extended description? Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This add-on needs, at the very least, a better description, explaining the security risks of using it! It uses a 3rd party service to convert the HTML to PDF, and, as such, allows your potentially critical information (depending on what it is you're saving, of course) to be seen by persons unknown to you!

This should be explained in a far more detailed manner than just a one sentence description! This is far too critical issue to leave to such a short statement.

Aside from that, my other issue is that some of the pages I've saved, including the Mozilla Add-ons page for this very extension, wind up with words with letters run together due to improperly rendered fonts.

AutoCopy 2

First Rate! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Just want to add my voice to what others have said... This is a first rate add-on! It works as advertised, and does it quickly and simply.

I would like to verify what one other reviewer mentioned, that is that the "Clipboard Contents" menu of the context menu isn't working properly. It will display a clipboard stack, but you are unable to copy items from it. This is a minor issue that doesn't at all detract from the usefulness of the add-on.

I have a SINGLE suggestion/complaint... As this is not from the same author, nor does it work exactly the same as, the original Auto Copy, I suggest that you change the icon for the add-on. It made me think that this was a direct follow-on from the original version. (Not to mention the fact that the original icon was weird and confusing! After many years, I'm still unable to figure out what it's suppose to be. :-) )

Finally, to add to what another reviewer mentioned, the add-on doesn't *always* work with bulleted text. I say "always" because, in fact, it DOES sometimes work! (I'll email this.) Again, something that will no doubt be fixed soon.

Thanks so much for this great addition!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.1). 

PrintPDF

Broken in FF 7 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The Add-on Compatibility Report lists this as "Reported to work in FF7 by the developer." Unfortunately, that isn't the case. I tried to print some webpages and, although the outlines of boxes, lines, and other graphics showed up, the one thing that was missing was ALL of the text!

Needs a LOT of work to be useful!

MR Tech Toolkit

Can't live without it! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The title says it all. Hoping for a FF4 update soon!

Favicon Picker 3

A Cleaner Bookmarks Bar!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I happen to have a very cluttered bookmarks toolbar. Some of these bookmarks are for websites that don't provide their own favicons. With this I've been able to make my own favicons and apply them to my bookmarks so that I can remove their names, making for a MUCH cleaner, favicon only, toolbar. VERY NICE! Thanks for your work.

P.S. Giving 1 star because it doesn't work with a version of Firefox that it SAYS IT DOESN'T WORK WITH?!? REALLY?!? THAT, my friends, is hubris!!
