I've been happily relying on this simple little workhorse since it was first brought to my attention that such a basic feature was missing from firefox. It does exactly what it says, with no excess baggage.
This is probably the most innovative and important increase to web browser productivity since the invention of tabs, or possibly the DOM inspector.
Docking down to 5 stars, because currently middle clicking doesn't work right in FF developer edition, or I'd have given it a million stars.
I really liked this one back when it worked, so it feels unfair to review it after it has reached its end of life, but I figured someone out there was looking for a replacement.
"Findbar Tweak" is the best, simplest replacement I could find.
Scrollbar Search Highlighter does it too, but changes the window size during highlighting.
It's a must-have. Do, however, consider turning off the "Automatic Search for login data" if you notice frequent slowdowns in page rendering (stuttering). Clicking the toolbar button will still do what you want, as needed.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.3).
It had worked for 13, but got disabled in 14.0.1. The other preference, extensions.strictCompatibility can still override all this add-on's work, making it useless in that situation, and you still have to go in to about:config to re-enable your add-ons. So, this add-on is only a partial solution - at least this dev tried and I respect that. Still, a miss is as good as a mile. Why is mozilla so stupid about add-ons? I am not even sure how extensions.strictCompatibility keeps coming back. It's ridiculous.
Leechblock is exactly what I needed. It harbors no illusions about the nature of or need for self-control, it's just a great way of letting me remind myself how I've been spending my time.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6.2).
I really like the idea behind this as an add-on but I'm not sure whether I'll keep it. If I could have it permanently on for my one website, I think it would be a little better.
The second best thing out there is this bookmarklet:
but it makes the page editable, which is annoying.
It's not really 0 downloads - it's at least one, because I'm using it now. It puts the wiki in the sidebar, and I have no google toolbar. What more could I ask for?
5 stars, not like a 5 star restaurant, but in the sense that it does exactly what it says it will do it without unexpected problems.
