My Reviews

Passive Cache

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Thank you for making this add-on, I have used it since you made it some years ago and have found it to be very helpful for many different reasons.
While you may have moved on to other things (you have not updated the add-on for 5 years, although it is signed now), one small change would be helpful. The links to Google and Archive need to "https" rather than "http".
I can easily change this myself, but the way Firefox now handles add-on signing means that Firefox will automatically disable the add-on if it finds the code modified. I can then re-enable it and live with Firefox's "proceed with caution" warnings, but, my having to modify the code to comport with contemporary security practice should not result in breaking Firefox's recognition of the add-on's status. (This is the reason for the lack of one star out of the 5 that it should get otherwise.)
Please consider making this small modification.

Private Tab

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Thank you so much for writing this add-on.

I gave it four stars only because it could use a configuration panel for changing or deleting hotkeys. I'm one of those who prefers no hotkeys, but there are other people who need to change the hotkey combinations for accessibility. For me, editing the about:config is no big deal, but for others, it is, especially for accessibility's sake.Like other reviewers, I too would like to see an appearance change for private tabs, so while you're thinking about it, I used the userChrome.css to address the issue.

The relevant CSS I used is:.

.tabbrowser-tab[privateTab-isPrivate] .tab-content
{ background:#555 !important; color:#ddd !important; }

.tabbrowser-tab[privateTab-isPrivate] .tab-close-button
{ /* this needs to change the default image as it's a bit dark with my colors */ }

.tabbrowser-tab[privateTab-isPrivate][selected] .tab-content
{ background:#777 !important; color:#fff !important; }

.tabbrowser-tab[privateTab-isPrivate]:hover .tab-content
{ background:#669 !important; color:#fff !important; }

I hope this helps, and others may find it useful. Thank you again for making this add-on.
