Deleted all my tab groups Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I installed this addon, configured some settings and then I realized that all my tab groups except the one that was open were gone. So this shitty thing deleted over 100 tabs which I can not get back simply.
Worst addon ever. I relied on the good reviews but now I do not understand why there are so high.
Not because of the addon. And here's how you'd get them back
That's not because of ColorfulTabs. To get them back go to the History menu > Recently closed tabs/windows and click on the one you want to restore. Thanks for the rating.
Love this addon! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This addon turns a dreary looking Firefox into something nice to look at. Thank you, ColorfulTabs. If only you could spell "colour" correctly it would be perfect ;-)
The "Open tab here" on the sub-menu is really useful too.
It seems that Colorful Tabs 29.1 and Firefox 43.0.2 beta don't play well together Rated 4 out of 5 stars
FYI: I am running the new FF 43.0.x beta and cannot get colors to display on any tab.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (29.1). This user has a previous review of this add-on.
Text glow permanently enabled Rated 2 out of 5 stars
Starting with version 28.7, text glow is permanently enabled with no way to turn it off. Reported on Binaryturf Colorfultabs forums three weeks ago. Installed new version 28.9 today, issue still not fixed. Very annoying.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (28.9).
One of my favorite add ons Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Recently had some issues with my tabs displaying vertically on the left side, instead of in rows. Posting on the support forum got me no response. Luckily, I came here today, and thanks to Chris Lockwood, my issue is fixed. Chris, you rock! Thank you so much! Mini mode is not a setting I chose, however, so I'm not sure how it ended up that way. Oh well.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (28.5).
This Add-on not signed Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I have used Colorful Tabs for a long time.
Have just installed Firefox v40 and seen the warning that it is not signed. I suspect that the next Firefox update will not allow this Add-on to be installed.
Review Update Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Moonbeam on your support page describes the same problem I'm suffering: vertical tabs rather than multi-row. JNP in a review on the Mozilla Add-on page for your extension provides a resolution but doesn't clearly explain how to get to settings, as I could not find anything in Firefox that uses the term minfy.
Here's his comments: "I then read the update notes about 'fixing' a bug in minify tabs in version 28.3. On a hunch, I went into settings, unchecked the minify tabs box and my tabs returned to aligning themselves horizontally rather than vertically."
Shivanand , thanks for the super-quick reply. It worked after I restarted the browser. For others: to uncheck minify option, right click on any tab, go to the bottom of the menu and click on ColorfulTabs, then remove the check mark from Mini-Mode.
looks pretty, but the cause for all my firefox crashes Rated 1 out of 5 stars
found out after many months of ever more crashes, it was colfultabs (perhaps interfering with another add-ons, dont know)This review is for a previous version of the add-on (28.3).
unzuverlässig Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Bei mehreren Seiten wird die gewählte Farbe nicht angezeigt. Egal ob ich nur die Domain, oder den genauen Seitennamen eingebe. Kombination von verschiedenen Farbschemen nicht möglich. Ich würde mir wünschen, dass wie im IE durch Link aufgerufene Seite die gleiche Farbe bekommen wie die Ursprungsseite. Bei Eingabe einer aktuellen URL muss diese neue gestartet werden, damit die Farbe wirksam wird. Bei Nutzung der Methode färben nach URL werden Seiten die nicht aufgeführt sind oft in zu ähnlichen bereits vergebenen Farben dargestellt-> ich würde mir wünschen dass ich eine Farbe vergeben kann für nicht aufgeführte Seiten. @Autor: natürlich mecker ich hier rum was nicht heißt, dass das Addon nicht gut ist.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (28.3).
Difficulty With Latest Version - A Possible Solution For Vertical Tabs Alignment (Updated With Better Instructions) Rated 4 out of 5 stars
When the latest version came out, CT stacked the tabs, vertically, on top of one another in a row. I couldn't figure out why this was happening and reverted to 28.1. I then read the update notes about "fixing" a bug in minify tabs in version 28.3. On a hunch, I went into colorful tabs/options/styles, unchecked the minify tabs box and my tabs returned to aligning themselves horizontally rather than vertically. So, SS I hope this helps you, and others, I think like Snork, who seem to be suffering from the same problem.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (28.3).
Used to be a long year friend .. Rated 2 out of 5 stars
... but now it breaks close icons on tabs, and the link to the older versions leads to nothing / not found ... sorry, buddy, but tis means goodbye to this addon.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (28.3).
Unhappy with updates! specifically 8/24/15 Rated 2 out of 5 stars
Every time colorful tabs updates my tabs get all messed up and sometimes they even disappear. I love this addon as it makes my tabs easy to see but the updates are killing me. This last update required that I reset to the tabs to the original settings in order for my tabs to display properly. It is a royal pain everytime you roll out an update!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (28.3).
sadly i must uninstall Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Note I give this five stars for past performance. But now with last update Aug 24 2015 I must uninstall. I have many addons and now the tabs are gigantic and wasting space. dont want to go through the trouble of safe mode, disabling the addons half by half, etc. so must say good bye to this very nice addon. bye and thanks it was good while it lasted.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (28.3).
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Looks great however one problem it conflicts with the autoclose tab plugin which I need. I tried unticking force strict control to prevent other plugins
if it would co-exist with autoclose tab I would
give it a 5
or at least provide a function to do that in your plugin.
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
helpful very much in ff 40 (stupid win10 style)This review is for a previous version of the add-on (28.1).
Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Very nice add-on. Recently placed an auto-loading fund raising page on my browser which never goes away, interferes with and sometimes untracks browser boot-up, and as far as I can find to date is not easy to remove.
Too bad. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone despite its quality as an add on.
Designer and Binary Turf do not respond after weeks of inquiries.
As Mr. Sharma suggests below, I'm moving on. Hopefully this will kill the hijacker, but I'm not confident. These are not "loving" people, and I believe potential users ought to know.
very useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars
just an fyi, FF 40 upgrade lists it as not verified even though it still seems to work ok.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (28.1).
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I LOVE this add-on. So pretty and helps you to keep organized while surfing a lot of tabs at once.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (28.1).
Colour tabs Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Great ad on. Separates tabs in a manner that simplifies selection and is very user friendly. Only negative is the number of tabs launched advising of updates. Should just do them.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (27.9). This user has 2 previous reviews of this add-on.
Adware - Tired of it Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Lord. Would you PLEASE add an option to not be forced/hijacked to your personal site EVERY time you update this add-on? Seriously, sort of a cheap coding gimmick for someone that recommends a $10 donation for their "free" add-on.
Hey, what about removing the hijacking of the users browser to your personal website? Don't want to respond to that?
The recommended contribution is higher. ColorfulTabs is "currently" free. But in this open-source ecosystem there are alternatives that come in all varieties and flavors. Thanks for using ColorfulTabs.
