In a little more detail...

I am just a code-fascinated Firefox user who learned javascript and xul/xml from library books and the wonderful world-wide-web. I enjoy hearing my add-on users ideas, so if you have any comments/suggestions, use the forum listed under 'Support' or the contact form at the homepage.

Add-ons I've created

Stay-Open Menu

Facilitates opening multiple tabs from the Bookmarks Menu and various other bookmark/history related dropdown menus. Less need to keep reopening menu, without using the sidebar. Optional auto-closing feature adds extra convenience.

My Reviews

New Tab Position Toggle

Simple useful add-on for users with many open tabs Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very handy if you tend to keep a lot of tabs open and occasionally want a new tab next to the current one.
Works fine for my use case (thanks Archaeopteryx), but doesn't seem to work properly if you have changed browser.tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent to false (see: https://forums.mozilla.org/addons/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=11616)

Options also allow setting (unmodified) left-click, should you want to change the default behavior (thus it's also a partial replacement for Tab Control add-on, which is no longer maintained).

Iconic Firefox Menu

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Leaves more room for tabs (using with 'Tabs Always in Titlebar') and looks great too! Some might prefer to use a different icon e.g. on Aurora, but I like using the 'real' Firefox one this extension gives me.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1). 

Status-4-Evar

My fox gets his status back! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks! Easy to use and works perfectly; hope you maintain this 4-evar. Placed the status text in the location bar to save vertical space. Check out the options - It's a great fx4 compatible Fission replacement too.

FireFTP

Excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars

FireFTP is one of my favorite add-ons. Before I switched from Internet Explorer to Firefox years ago, I used IE's built-in ftp. It was enough for my needs at the time, except it kept getting broken over and over. Asking for help fixing it was sure to yield at least one "get a real ftp client" response. FireFTP just works; no time-wasting distractions from website development. I run Firefox Beta, so I really appreciate its author keeping it promptly updated to keep up with Firefox code changes. He's very polite/helpful too, should the need arise to contact him. The interface is flexible enough that I could arrange it to appear much like the IE one I was used to, and simply drag/drop files just like I always did. I use ftp more than ever now, and FireFTP still does everything I want/need. It's as real of an ftp client as anyone could want. The right add-ons make Firefox fantastic; FireFTP is the right add-on for ftp. I've been using FireFTP for a long time now and couldn't be more pleased. Thanks for sharing it on AMO!

Bottom Error Console

Perfect for Extension Development Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Resizeable, doesn't disappear on restart, doesn't need moved out of the way like separate window. Thanks.

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

Inspect Context

Great Complement to DOM Inspector Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Makes DOM Inspector better and easier to use. Very helpful for extension/theme development. Thanks.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4). 

Vista on XP

Linux fix Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I have the same problem others mention with the disappearing text on Linux (Knoppix Live CD, Vista on XP version 1.0). Same issue occurs for me with Strata Aero theme. I use the following in userChrome.css as a workaround:

menubar > menu[_moz-menuactive="true"] {color: MenuText !important;}

5 stars on Win XP, 3 on Linux

(Bug report posted here because there is no other support contact listed.)

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

Go Parent Folder

Essential Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works great on Win XP too. Glad to see this functionality available for Fx 3.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4). 

Classic Compact Options

Great options! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I use this on Linux, not for the compact feature, but to make my Linux Firefox look mostly like my Win XP Firefox (which uses the default theme), and the options really help for this.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.2). 

Places' Tooltips

View the url associated with your bookmarks Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Version 1.1 Addon works well for me on Bookmarks Menu and Bookmarks Toolbar. (I don't understand what this has to do with View Menu and I have no custom toolbars.) Tooltip shows title and url. If you are just looking to view long titles that get cut off see also https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1042. Currently I'm using both. If you're not using 1042 and your folders have long names, you might want to turn on the option to display tooltips for folders, but I find that annoying.

Places’ Full Titles

Even better than version 2.0 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Just added the code to userChrome.css with a note as to its origin. Works fine (Fx 3 on Win XP). Great for those long RSS Live Bookmark titles. Especially for those of us who prefer the Bookmarks Menu to the Sidebar.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3). 

Winstripe Theme Fix-up for Firefox 3

Just like Fx 3 should be Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Changes are relatively minor (for me on Win XP anyway), but well-done and belong in Fx 3.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.0).
