My Reviews

Always Preview

Works well, but not on Android Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Does what is says. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to be installable on Android. Perhaps this could be added? pdf.js is availabe for Android, so it can show PDFs.

Chrome Store Foxified

does what it says Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Allows installing Chrome extensions on Firefox Nightly. That's what's being advertised, that's what I want, that's what I get. Sure, many extensions are incompatible with Firefox, at least for now. But we can't blame this addon for that, can we.

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

Standalone

runs perfectly, could use some extra features Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Runs perfectly on El Capitan. But it could use a few extra features, for example settings to determine which links to open in the app and which to send to the actual browser. Also, it would be neat to allow the injection of custom scripts into pages, to integrate the app more in the OS. Would you consider open sourcing Standalone?

Reddit Submission Finder

Good replacement for the discontinued toolbar Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Does its job as advertised and is a good replacement for the reddit toolbar that will be discontinued. Unfortunately doesn't detect when you follow a reddit link and pre-load the reddit submission(s). Also has no option to pre-load the submissions automatically. But these are very minor gripes, altogether I'm very happy.

simple def

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The flat look is very nice on OS X 10.10 Yosemite.

PDF Viewer(discontinued)

Phenomenal! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works way better than anything I've tried so far, including scientific papers. Would be nice if the toolbar were plattform-adjusted. Looks a bit odd on my Mac -- but that's not a reason to give less than 5 stars. (Take http://userstyles.org/styles/46213/firefox-4-os-x-download-statusbar-slim as an example of successful "macification")

Firefox Sync for Firefox 3.5/3.6

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Almost perfect. What's missing though:

* Not working on Solaris.
* Icon only in the status bar -- I need to access the icon from time to time and that means I either have to hide/unhide the bar all the time or just leave it there to waste space :(
* No App for Android.
* No Webinterface.

Foobar

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Pretty much great, but not ready for 3.7/4.0. For example, moz-action:switchtab is not implented.

Firefox Sync for Firefox 3.5/3.6

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Works great, unless you have to use it on Solaris, like I have to do at work :-(

Apparently there's some kind of problem with the encryption there...

Bookmarks Toolbar Button

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Really great, works perfectly, even with 3.7a5pre

I give you 5 stars if you make a little animation (that folds down the bookmark bar and moves the content down) like Chrome has :-P

Omnibar

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Well, it does what it's supposed to do but it's painfully slow on Mac OS X. I can type in 20 characters and go have coffee while they slowly appear.
Maybe disable the search until 500ms-1s after the last keystroke, I guess that'll help.

Yet Another Smooth Scrolling

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Breaks form controls. When trying to select a checkbox with the spacebar, the page scrolls down instead. Other than that, it's great.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0.11). 

GrApple Crisp

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great addon, looks even better (imho) with http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?p=6303525#p6303525 and https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/7670

Other than that I wished that it would remove the titletext and move the tabs a little to the left and a little to the top in order to save a few more px. But still, great theme on OS X.
