Gmail Manager-community

Sept 2016 Login failure caused by Google Gmail Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The current login problem is due to poorly implemented changes by Google Gmail team - NOT the fault of this add-on's team, nor the fault of Mozilla Firefox.

Remember, these are volunteer developers that generously contribute their own time to keep this add-on working without compensation. If you are not happy with its performance you are welcome to go elsewhere or write your own Gmail extension. However, whining, and impatiently demanding a fix is rude, inconsiderate, and reflects poorly on the user. It may also discourage future development. By using free software, the developers owe you nothing. You owe them your gratitude and respect.

No one is forcing you to use this add-on. You are always welcome to try other add-ons or web browsers.

If you feel compelled to complain - go to complain to Google. I suggest Reddit however they are other sites.

Customize Titlebar

Working with unbranded v.48.0 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Firefox unbranded version 48.0 shows "- Nightly" in title bar - how annoying.

Thanks to "Latz", I changed the em:maxVersion = 999 and it works in Firefox unbranded v.48.0...Yeah!

Gmail Manager-community

Still working with FF 44.0.2, but.. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I clicked on the 'support section' and it took me here, so here I am.

Only issue I have is the button is stuck in the lower right 'legacy addonbar' and I can't move it out. When I enter Customize, I the button shaded, but can't move it elsewhere. My understanding is the add-on doesn't use the "new" toolbar and button APIs (https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2013/12/12/australis-for-add-on-developers-1/). Otherwise it is a invaluable for anyone with multiple gmail accounts.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7). 

Gmail Manager NG

Working so far on FF 43.0 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Working so far on FF 43.0 :)

Compact Menu 2

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is now 2.5+ years old but still works on FF 28.

The Title bar is replaced with orange 'Firefox' button (no mention of this in the description).

I use the Title bar to ascertain the webpage I am on, so I removed the add-on. Thanks anyway!

FindBar Tweak

Options are not sticking? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

1. Add my name to your ever-expanding list of thank you's!

2. On FF 25/Win7, for some reason I cannot change any of FindBar Tweak's options. I've tried via Options/Addon/FindBar Tweak and also by rt.clicking the Find bar, and even tried restarting FF. The options always stay as default installed.

Thanks!

Print Edit

Not working with FF 25.0.1 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Default English only.

Edit: 16 Nov13.

Still not working with FF 25.0.1 XP.Maybe a conflict with other addon, Maybe not.

Print Edit

"Text Pieces" or "Web style" aren't enabled on FF 25 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I tried again. "Text Pieces" or "Web style" are NOT selectable on the Print Edit Menubar. I went into options/features and verified that both are enabled, restarted FF. In FF 25.0, these two options along with all other Menubar options remain shaded/unavailable, and I am not able to use Print Edit in any way with FF on Windows 7. Thank you!

PE 10.2 is not working in Firefox 25.0 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you for the excellent and highly useful addon.

I just installed Firefox 25.0. [Awesome] Print Edit 10.2 stopped working. It opens, I see all Edit options on top of Edit page shaded (but I can't use any of them). I went back and forth between Edit/Preview but am unable to see any of the red area boxes nor access any options on the PE toolbar. I reinstalled Firefox 24.0 (from FileHippo.com) and Print Edit is working again!

Windows XP

GMail Checker

Gmail Checker 2.6.2 no working as of 29 Oct 13 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Gmail Checker 2.6.2 stopped working for me today 29 Oct 2013 while on FF 24 BEFORE upgrading to FF 25.

I suspect Google changed something as the default Gmail.com page looks different. It may not have anything to do with FF 25.

I wonder if the other gmail-checker are not working either?

SearchMenu - Search Faster in Firefox

Works with Firefox 14.0.1 - Use this workaround for Stylish Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Working with Firefox 14.0.1.

If you have issues with Stylish (I did), try replacing Stylish with add-on: User Style Manager, it is compatible with SearchMenu 2.2.3 and works well!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2.3).  This user has 2 previous reviews of this add-on.

Add to Search Bar

FF 14.0.1 - Working fine! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Only tried once with Youtube, FF 14.0.1 - worked perfectly!

Windows XP (will never die!)

Classic Toolbar Buttons

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

For accessability reasons, I use macros that press Custom buttons on the Navigation bar based on Relative Window position.

Firefox 1.4.0.1's inconsiderate size changes to this toolbar threw-off the relative window positions and caused my macros to press the wrong button.

Thanks to Classic (Small) Toolbar Buttons 1.1.2 I have my larger buttons back.

Only suggestion I can make is in the name. I don't use the Small Toolbar buttons, but the default (larger) one.

Lets hope Firefox Devs. doesn't find a way to break this necessary add-on!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.2.1-signed). 

SearchMenu - Search Faster in Firefox

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks jg, while we wait and wait for approval, is there somewhere we can obtain now for testing purposes?

SearchMenu - Search Faster in Firefox

Excellent! But can't access OPTIONS in FF 10.x or 11.x Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Excellent and very useful add-on, but can't access options to add google-play (formerly android market). It just loads the options waiting page.......

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.5). 

Add-on Compatibility Reporter

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you, but I'm confused with how this interacts with extensions.checkCompatibility.6.0.1, as I see this add-on ads many such Preference Names.

If I use this, then can I delete my prior extensions.checkCompatibility.6.0.1 ?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.1-signed.1-signed). 

Find All

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very useful and one of my favorite add-ons! Still working in Firefox 6.0.If you choose to update this add-on, I am unable to use the alternate row feature because I use white text and the alternate row light gray shading makes the text nearly impossible to read. Otherwise this is 5 stars all the way!

Thank you!

Tile Tabs

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Version 4.12 resolved the Ctrl+drag issue! This developer's (DW-dev) support has been stellar. I am awarding 5 stars only because 6 stars is not yet possible. Thank you!

Restart Button

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Thank you http://labs.strk.jp/ !

Works OK in Firefox 4.0.1. I had to replace QuickRestart 1.1.6 as it was not (officially) compatible with Firefox 4.x.

Tile Tabs

Excellent! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I've been searching for years for an add-on that would give Firefox similar tiling functionality to Opera and this is the best yet. Thank you!
