Go Parent Folder

Suggestions for the future Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Is it possible to get the View shown by Show Parent Folder added to Go Parent Folder add-on ? ? We really should not need to install both to get the best functionality. Also, how about us being able to bring the Bookmark Search box out so it can be placed on a Toolbar ? ? If we can do this, then the Library need not be opened in order to search for a Bookmark

Thank you

Menu Filter

Wonderful extension Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This has got to be one of the best extensions I have ever found. It lets you hide menu items you never need, but they can be unhidden with ease. This feature should have been a part of the Firefox design from the beginning.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (16). 

Toggle Document Fonts

Needs a few minor tweaks Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Button takes up way too much space with all that lettering. Also there are no Options, such as White Listing a site to use it's own fonts or to use my specified fonts.

Yahoo Mail Hide Ad Panel

Not Blocking Intuit / Turbo Tax Banner Ad In Yahoo Email Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Does not seem to be blocking the very large Banner Ad at the top of Yahoo Email page which is from Intuit / Turbotax .. one of the most intrusive and annoying ads I have ever seen. This will not entice me to buy Turbo Tax or Intuit products.

FEBE

Why not available for Firefox 42 ? ? ? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Using FEBE 8.8.1 working fine. But what happened as to why future releases won't work with Firefox 42 ? ? Not everyone is happy with the changes being forced on us by Mozilla in the newest and not so greatest releases of Firefox ... Thanks

The question was more of: Why the addon home page does not show 8.8.2 as working with Firefox 42 ? Does it or does it not ? And if not, will it be corrected so it does ?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (8.8.2).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Google Shortcuts - All Google Services at a glance

Reasonably good Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Not too bad an extension. Too bad the developer won't keep it "up to date" for Firefox ... The so called Chrome version, could not be installed in Firefox and I (and others) have no intention of switching to Chrome. The current extension needs a Google Search Box button and a way to Import existing Google Toolbar Custom Buttons which are in .xml format. Otherwise, this extension can do 99% of what my old, still working Google Toolbar For Firefox did. (not sure if it can do Page Translations, but that is a feature I have almost never needed)

Toolbar Buttons

Suggestions Rated 4 out of 5 stars

While this add-on is not too bad, it could use a few features:

1): I like to be able to just Download and save the add-on, then install later. Firefox does not like to do this and the only way to get the .xpi is to do a backup with FEBE

2): It would be nice if we could modify the Buttons that link to various URL sites. If we can not, then how about allowing us a way to create a Custom Button or to be able to Import Buttons (in .xml format) as used in Google Toolbar ? ?

Forecastfox (fix version)

Conflict with No Squint Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Just installed Firefox 42 on Windows 10 Home. It has your add-on along with Forecast Fox .. for some reason, the Zoom Magnifier is now part of the Forecast Fox toolbar and I can not seperate it. It was working fine in Firefox 39, not sure which Firefox broke it or if the issue is with No Squint or Forecast Fox or the lack of normal Classic Themes in Windows 10 .. Please see if this can be resolved.

Googlebar Lite

Adding custom buttons Rated 4 out of 5 stars

We need a way to add custom buttons or to import custom buttons in .xml format from the original Google Toolbar (from Google, now discontinued) .. Otherwise, while your add on is good and will work in FF43 (when signed add ons are mandatory) I will lose many custom created buttons that I need to use. Many other users would also like this feature. Please try to add it. Thank you.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.0.6.1-signed). 

Googlebar (Fixed)

Adding custom buttons Rated 4 out of 5 stars

How can I add custom buttons to this add-on ? ? My custom buttons are in .xml format. I have some that I used with the real Google Toolbar (since discontinued) that I would like to be able to use with your add-on. Also when will it get Signed by Mozilla so it can be used with FF43 and later ? ? ?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.20.05.01). 

Custom Buttons

Can it use existing .xml button files ? ? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Is it possible to import a button that was previously created as a .xml file (from Google Toolbar for example) ? ? I have a few like that and when add on signing is mandatory, I will likely lose Google Toolbar (but I do have all the buttons I use saved on my computer)

Thanks

Classic Theme Restorer

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Not bad, but the Option to get rid of Pocket does not work properly. It did set the flag in About:Config and I did the restart, but the Pocket Button is still on the Bookmarks drop down and I can not find a way to get rid of it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.2.1-signed). 

FEBE

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very good addon, but is it possible to save the backup in more than one location ? If it is, how do we type it into the Save In Location ? ? If not, perhaps this simple feature can be added.

Tab Mix Plus

Still buggy closing firefox Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Firefox still crashes when using the X at top right of Firefox. Very annoying and it generates a crash report every time. It also does it when using your latest beta release of Tab Mix Plus ... Firefox 38.0.1

Webmail Ad Blocker

Good, but an ocassional glitch Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Sometimes, in Yahoo Mail, it reverts back to not blocking all the web ads. Disabling and Renabling the add on or restarting the browser (Firefox 37.0.2) usually corrects the issue. Please see why this is happening. Thanks

No idea of what may be causing it. Sometimes, just in the Inbox sorting the emails. A bit of a bother for an otherwise fine add on.

Download Manager Tweak

Bug when downloading Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Using V1.05 as it is latest for FF28 and there is an issue, but not sure if yours or Firefox .. seems if I change the File Name of a Download, it will not download it. So we have to save it as is and then rename it as we want it. It used to let us change the name as we wanted.

Webmail Ad Blocker

Mostly very good Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Not bad, but now and then in Yahoo email, it reverts to narrow style. But ads are still blocked.
When this happens, I disable and then reenable your add-on and it is back to normal. Also I can not post at the forum for bugs. Your system or web site, seems to think I am a Spammer (which is most assuredly not the case) ... Thank you

This is with Firefox 28.0 ... as of right now, not very happy with the latest look and feel of newest Firefox.

NoSquint

Need help setting exceptions Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Basically an ok add-on, but I need help in setting it up properly. I use 1024 x 768 screen resolution. I want all my websites to be at 100% zoom level. The only site I need to be set at 90% is Mail.Yahoo.com (yahoo email site)
https://us-mg6.mail.yahoo.com
For some idiotic reason, if I leave that site at 100% the characters in the Inbox (for unread mails) are a very large Bold Face Font .. totally incorrect, but what else would I expect as Yahoo has messed up the email since the last major "new and improved yahoo email"

Remove It Permanently

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works good, but I can not keep a pesky ad for IOS in Yahoo Email from appearing. I have tried all the options in RIP. The ad will go away, but comes back a little later.
