My Reviews

Personas Plus

@tiger578 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It IS fixed. Personas was never supposed to be for non-default themes. This update fixed that "bug". It wasn't accidental, it was intentional.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5). 

OptimizeGoogle

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

THANK YOU for reviving this add-on, and bringing some much needed additions and fixes! I have three requests:

1. Add alternative searches to Google Image Search. Yahoo and Bing are probably the main ones.

2. Block Google Sidebars. Although I think this feature is still under trial and today I am not seeing the new layouts in searches... so many it's not needed YET, but it's something to look out for in the future! If Google goes the way of Bing, God help us all!!

3. Force Google to use normal sized fonts. The kindergarten-sized fonts seem to appear randomly in search boxes, and the randomness makes it even more annoying.

Clear Search

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I'm running Firefox 3.5.5 on Win 2000 and this Add-on simply does not work on my system. In addition to only clearing the search field randomly, when it does clear the field it also sends a blank search form out causing Google to come up to the main page.

Big New Tab Button

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Does what it says it does... but it would be nicer if it centered the icon.

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

Generic chrome CSS loader

Ah-ha! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's working now without needing to restart... this is awesome!

Generic chrome CSS loader

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very helpful! It still needs some work, I'm hoping for a Restart button on the dialog and to see it appear in the Tools menu.

Generic chrome CSS loader

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is very exciting! I'm only giving it four stars because it still needs some work... as in the Revert and Try It buttons don't appear to do anything. I'd love to see a Restart button right on the dialog, and I'd love to see this one put right on the Tools menu. Great start!

Clear Search

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's working for me now, I'm not sure why it wasn't before. Great add-on for a work environment!

ChromaTabs Plus

Great overall. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Three things:

- The weird transparent close button makes this add-on visually incompatible with themes that use unique closers.

- The default setting for color should most definitely be most frequent color of icon.

- The opacities should be set to 20% for background and 60% for foreground to make it easier to differentiate between active and inactive tabs.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2). 

ChromaTabs Plus

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very nice! The most frequent color setting is a must! However, the default opacities make it difficult to differentiate active and inactive tabs. Setting foreground opacity to 60% and background opacity to 20% makes it much easier to recognize the active tab at a glance.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2). 

Bauhaus_Pure

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

1.8 is looking great man! The custom scrollbars are very nice! It's a little hard to tell which tabs are inactive and which are active, but overall it's coming along great!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.8). 

macfoxIII

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very nice! Great theme for having a clean Mac style with a little color and the Firefox 2.0 icons look very nice. One complaint, if you click on the urlbar Edit Bookmark button, the "Remove Bookmark" text is almost invisible, it might need a button around it.

Hide Menubar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I don't get why people are upset? I love the new auto feature! However, Alt-Tab is an OS level command and should not be used by any Firefox application. Anyway, I loved using this one in 3.0 and missed it and I'm glad it's back for 3.5 and upgraded!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.20090705). 

bug489729 (Disable detach and tear off tab)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It works as reported, I just wish the tab tearing could be made less sensitive.... like add an option for "drag tab 100px off of tabbar to tear off"

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

AnyColor

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I used to just think the styling was goofy... now it completely breaks every theme I use it with. ONLY works the the Default theme... this "Extension" should just be a Theme, not an Extension.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.0). 

Fission

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

In general I think this is very cool. I do have a few suggestions for using it with alternative themes.. and I have posted them to MozillaZine.

Hide Caption

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

To get the absolute most out of this addon, add "toolbar-menubar", "nav-bar", and "personal-bookmarks" to the DragCtrls variable in HideCaption.js. You will have to disable the add-on to customize the toolbars, but it's worth it!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.3). 

AnyColor

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Pro: Very attractive color schemes that actually colors most of the browser (unlike Personas).

Con: The default styling is a little strange.

Pro: You can disable most (not all) of the styling.

Con: Like Personas, it does not play well with themes other than the default theme... and even with the default theme it will not color in the Resizer in Windows 2000.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.6). 

Tab Sidebar

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Either I'm doing something grossly wrong or this extension simply doesn't support Win 2000... but I see nothing.
