Import/Export your Firefox extension preferences
Paste Email Plus Requires Restart
Paste email addresses, signatures and more into any textbox.
Just fine the way it is Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This add-on doesn't have some of the bells and whistles that other translate extensions have, but it doesn't matter. It's simple, effective, and doesn't clutter the webpage content with unnecessary eye candy.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.12.0).
Very useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars
As a developer, I find this extension very useful. It seems that Mozilla is moving most of its profile data into sqlite files and this extension makes it very easy to see what the current schema is.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.1.1-signed.1-signed).
Great start, but could use some tweaking Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This is a nice, little, unobtrusive and helpful extension. I just installed it, but can see it will be quite helpful when I need to do a quick calculation while browsing and posting on different pages.
A few suggestions:
1) The precision does not match the display length. For instance, if I calculate "1/3" the display shows the answer "0.33333333333" (13 characters and a little bit of the fourteenth). If I copy/paste the answer, it shows "0.3333333333333333" (18 characters). If you calculate to 18 digits of precision, you should be able to see all 18.
2) You should consider rounding the last digit of the answer. "2/3" shows "0.6666666666666666" but should round to "0.6666666666666667".
3) It would be nice to have a button that copies the answer to the clipboard. This would make it easier to paste the results into a form or forum post page.
4) It seems obvious that your goal was to present a very basic calculator and you have succeeded in that. In a future release you may consider adding more functions that put it on par with a scientific calculator (square root, pi, sine, cosine, add to memory, etc.)
Support site? Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Fantastic extension. Been using it for years with very little problems.
I do, however, have a support question. Your support site has lots of answers but I can't seem to find a place to ask a question. Is there perhaps a support forum for FireFTP that I don't know about?
**Edit: After a little research I found the support forum at https://github.com/mimecuvalo/fireftp/issues?state=open
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Very nice. I like to keep the findbar open across all tabs like Fx used to be. This extension make that possible again.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (22.214.171.124-signed).
Good, but could use a couple of enhancements Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This is a handy tool to have, but not having a button for it (the "Tools" menu would be a good place) makes it easy to forget it's installed. Having to execute the extension from the Tools > Add-ons page is cumbersome. Also the ability to re-size the options window would make it easier to read. I would have brought up these issues in your support forum, but you don't seem to have one (at least no link to one on this page).This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.1-signed).
Unauthorized version! Rated 1 out of 5 stars
This is not an official release. It was posted on this site without my knowledge or consent. I have no idea why or what the purpose of the supposed modification is.
Official versions are available at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/febe/ or my FEBE homepage at http://softwarebychuck.com/febe/febe.html
Use Forecastfox Weather Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I've used and loved this addon for years, but it never got updated beyond Fx 3.6. Now that I'm using Fx 7.x I found a virtually identical addon called Forecastfox Weather.

Philip, would you please bump the maxVersion for this? I encourage all my extension users to install Console² when submitting support issues. Since many are now using Fx 5 and above, they are not able to install this very helpful addon.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.1-signed.1-signed). This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Can this be extended to display XUL elements? Could be quite useful for extension developers.
Nice addon but poor support Rated 2 out of 5 stars
I have used and recommended this addon for quite some time. But when I installed the Feedly addon, Update Scanner would crash Fx consistently. I reported this problem in his support forum (http://updatescanner.mozdev.org/drupal/forum/4) weeks ago but has yet to be even acknowledged. There are other older bug reports there that are also unacknowledged. A developer should really be more responsive to his user base.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.1.2).
Malicious software Rated 1 out of 5 stars
While trying to find out more about this extension, I went their homepage "http://toolbar.tv-fox.com/". My Kaspersky anti-virus immediately threw up an alarm warning "Attempt to download malicious software".
The AMO reviewers should really investigate add-ons like this before making them public.
Rated 3 out of 5 stars
A handy tool. It would be an invaluable tool it it had a search function.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.1).
Absolutley essential Rated 5 out of 5 stars
As an extension developer, I am constantly recommending that my users install this extension to help in the debugging process. It finds problems that the standard Fx error console does not.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.9.1).
