ShowIP 2.5 Button Cannot Be Customized Rated 1 out of 5 stars

ShowIP 2.5 no longer hides the Firefox 'Customize' righthand panel. However, since it is placed on yet another new toolbar, from which it cannot be moved by 'Customize' (the toolbar is not shown in that mode), it just wastes space.

I don't need any more toolbars. I already have enough. They are in use and they already have space for a ShowIP button.

Author: please don't create any new toolbar, statusbar or any other bar for your extension. Please just create your button, put it on the 'Customize Palette' and let _us_ use 'Customize' to drag and drop it on whatever existing toolbar we choose.

I find version 2.5 of this extension utterly unusable on FF30.0 and FF31.0

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.5). 

ShowIP 2.4 Breaks FF29.0 Customize Dialogue Rated 3 out of 5 stars

ShowIP is useful and usually works well. However, in FF29.0, on Windows, ShowIP 2.4 causes the righthand (menu) side of the customize tab panel (including the 'Exit Customize' button) to disappear. See:

Customization broken • mozillaZine Forums

(ShowIP 2.4 also seems to put its icon into a status bar (instead of a toolbar). Edit of an old version perhaps? Extensions are no longer supposed to use a status bar for buttons - which should instead be customizable toolbar buttons.)

Since ShowIP 2.2 doesn't work at all in FF29.0, until a fix is released, the solution is: either live with the reduced 'Customize' dialogue or disable/uninstall ShowIP.

05 May 2014: I've just reduced my rating by one star because five (5) days after this was reported on the support site there is no response there yet (let alone a fix), for this significant problem.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.4.1-signed.1-signed).
