FINDING THIS PAGE Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Your page here, https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/textarea-cache/, links to your TAIWAN CHINESE PAGE for the lite version,
https://addons.mozilla.org/zh-TW/firefox/addon/textarea-cache-lite/ .
CHANGE THAT LINK to go to the English-language page, https://addons.mozilla.org/en/firefox/addon/textarea-cache-lite/
(I'm giving an average review, 3 stars, because I haven't tried the app, but this seemed the fastest and most helpful way to submit this page correction.)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2.8).

I AM SUDDENLY CUT OFF Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Zero stars if I could. Yesterday it was working in my Firefox 54.0.1 on my oldish Macbook Air with MacOS Sierra 10.12.5. Today it isn't even there! At least it's still working on my Android. I didn't have a clue to this disaster till I tried to use it on the Macbook, and then came here and saw all the other betrayed users' reviews.

YOU HAVE KILLED MY INTERNET USE Rated 1 out of 5 stars

MY old MacBook Air was getting slower and slower. I took it to the Apple Store last night, and they upgraded the OS to Sierra, 10.12.5. I've been getting familiar with the changes.

Just now, though, I restarted it, and that triggered an update of Firefox. AND NOW IT WON'T INSTALL LASTPASS. You unspeakable *****s, HOW THE **** CAN I LOG IN TO MOST OF THE WEBSITES I HAVE EEN USING FOR YEARS WHEN YOU HAVE **LOCKED ME OUT OF MY PASSWORDS**?????

Oh, yes, you say I can install a new version this or that. WILL THAT KILL THE OLD FILE OF MY PASSWORDS????

Yes, I'm using lots of caps, and asterisks for pseudo-italic emphasis. Yes, I'm swearing a concealed blue streak. And wouldn't you?

If finding and installing a compatible version of LP will be safe, y'know, it would be kind of nice to reassure us on the web page?

Big Navigation

Not a review really, a question Rated 4 out of 5 stars

"Increasing the links" is kind of odd but it would mean providing more links. I'm pretty sure you mean "enlarging the links". If you do, please edit the text Of these descriptions.

Print Edit

pretty good, two nuisances Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I just installed Print Edit on my office Mac and used it on the Print Edit page itself, to print out the info and instructions w/o the footer, boilerplate, etc. It worked very nicely; this is something I've been wishing for. I'll put it on my MacBook Air when I get home.

Two problems, though (maybe just one, see below) -- not serious to me -- that I wish would be fixed:
1. Print Edit pre-empts the whole Firefox window, not just the tab I'm editing. *I can't see any of my other tabs while editing for printing*, which is often something I want to do. So I have to remember to drag the tab out to a window of its own before using Print Edit.
2. Many of the sections have borders around them that weren't on the original page. ... Well, on very close inspection they were, but so pale as to be almost invisible. When I print in B&W they're a uniform pale grey. But maybe they would have been anyway, so this is very minor or zero value as an issue.

Oh, and BTW, Firefox: The email announcement had the subject line "Keep your Firefox tabs loading lightening fast". Yes, this *lightens* my *load*, but that's not what you meant, and that line as written is confusing and meaningless:
LIGHTNING ≠ LIGHT*E*NING

Show Parent Folder

VERY VERY helpful! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

On Mac OS X 10.6.8 I can't right-click a bookmark to open in a new window, I have to command-click. If I;m tired & I just want to use one hand, I have to drag it to the tab bar. But if I overshoot -- which is especially likely when i'm tired -- it gets moved to whatever folder in the bookmarks bar I happened to mouse-up in. Without this add-on, it's been a whole lot of totally pointless effort to find the mismoved bookmark so I can delete it and cut down on extraneous clutter in the bookmarks list.
