Classic Theme Restorer

Fixes many of the problems that Mozilla keeps creating with the user interface!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Restore the old search bar. Make the search bar and domain bar custom lengths. Add text to the icons on your toolbars. ....And correct many of the problems that Mozilla has seen fit to create with the most recent version of Firefox user interface. The Mozilla team seems to be working against the end users of Firefox....it's insane the ridiculous things they change for the worse. Thank you to the developer of this extension for allowing us options to restore our browsers to a much more functional and visually appealing interface.

Tree Style Tab

An Essential Add-on: Great Vertical Tabs Performance & Pinned Tabs Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The main reason I use the add-on is for its ability to display by tabs vertically on either side of my screen. It also gives you the ability to pin certain tabs (like for example a couple email accounts, netflix queue, and my local library queue) to the very top of the vertical tab bar. Each pinned tab is represented by a small icon, so I have about 7 of those small pinned icons all on one row at the top of my vertical tab bar. This integrates well with Tab Mix Plus as well. I suspect that having the ability to display tabs vertically is one of the main reasons so many people use Firefox.

Vertical Tabs (Simplified)

Works great in Firefox 43. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Gives great no-frills vertical tabs in Firefox 43. Treestyle tabs has stopped working with my update to 43, which I'm sure they'll update soon, but Vertical Tabs has proven to be a great backup to Treestyle.

-This loads my tabs faster. (It isn't uncommon for me to keep 100 or more tabs open at a time, & Firefox start/restart time is substantially reduced with this add-on)
-It allows you to choose to display your tabs on the right side of your screen instead of the default left in the add-on preferences.
-It also shows an audio marker on tabs which are playing, like youtube for example, for the purposes of muting them....BUT it is very handy for finding the tab that is playing if you have tons of tabs like I do. (I've been having problems with youtube tabs randomly starting to play even though I never clicked on them, so this is incredibly handy, otherwise I have to hunt for the tab, which can take several minutes. )

The audio marker on actively playing tabs, and the reduced time it takes for Firefox to open are so helpful to me that I likely will be using this instead of Treestyle Tabs from now on.

Download Flash and Video

Invaluable Add-on, Downloads & works with DownThemAll Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is the only vid downloader, that I've found, which also integrates with DownThemAll download manager, instead of the default firefox download manager. This allows me to restrict download speeds so it doesn't interrupt Netflix streaming for other members of my house. Note that I sometimes have to go to this addon's preferences and uncheck, then recheck the field about using DownThemAll as the download manager...it's some kind of glitch which ignores the checkmark in that field, but easy to overcome. I'm using version 1.7 of the extension, on Firefox 37.0.2, running on Linux Mint Cinnamon 17.1 64bit. I'm baffled by some of the poor reviews below, because this addon saves me some serious time and aggravation.

Zoom toolbar

Works great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Use this all the time to zoom out websites that don't wrap their content to fit a smaller monitor size. Really like the reset icon that allows you to instantly jump back to the default zoom when you no longer need to be zoomed in or out.

ScrapBook

Awesome add-on. Use this almost every single day. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This really pretty much revolutionized the way I store and access useful articles, pictures, etc, that I find on the web. I've been using this add-on for years, and have never had any problems with file corruptions, etc. The Scrapbook location is easily backed-up (and should be backed-up regularly), and Scrapbook saves pages extremely well. I also use the 'Clearly' add-on to clean-up webpages prior to saving them with Scrapbook....giving you smaller file storage sizes and much more neat & clean Scrapbook entries. The Scrapbook is also easily searched, and doesn't take much time even with very large Scrapbooks. I also use Scrapbook everytime I shop online as it allows you to capture shopping cart screens, etc flawlessly....which keeps me from having to print all that crap out to hard copy.

Mozilla Archive Format, with MHT and Faithful Save

Works great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works as described. Use it every time I save a webpage in archive format. Should be in Firefox base code.

Evernote Clearly

Slick add-on, works well with the Scrapbook add-on to clean webpages up, before saving them. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I use this often to clean-up webpages prior to saving them with the Scrapbook add-on. I keep the Clearly icon right on my toolbar next to Scrapbook icon for easy use. Not only makes saved pages much more neat and clean, but it also makes the resulting Scrapbook entry much smaller in file storage size, which is a great help for avid Scrapbook users with HUGE numbers of saved webpages.

Classic Theme Restorer

Lifesaver for people who hate the new firefox GUI changes! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

My entire family uses this add-on, because we all use small icons (with TEXT), which the new firefox just eliminated. My elderly parents, aunt, grandparents, all use icons with text, so this was a real lifesaver in terms of preserving their ability to use their browser. This add-on allows you to have icons with text, and lots of other useful, easy-to-configure features. Spend a couple minutes with this add-on's configuration menu and you'll find it was time well spent. What a fantastic little gem. Firefox users use Firefox because they don't want to use Chrome or Internet Explorer, so the developers need to stop eliminating user options and trying to turn Firefox into a crap browser look alike. Until the Firefox developers come to their senses, I hope this fantastic add-on continues to be available going forward.

Download Flash and Video

Works fantastic! ...and doesn't contain any spyware/bloatware like Flash Video Downloader add-on does! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works as intended. I download all kinds of instructional videos off Youtube and other sites with this little gem. I switched to this recently after my previous downloader add-on (Flash Video Downloader) began installing spyware/bloatware into my browser.

ScrapBook

Kickass Add-on!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Fantastic extension. I've been using scrapbook extensively for years. Access to this add-on is the main reason I use firefox as my browser. The only thing I would change is that I wish the toolbar icon for the scrapbook had an "S" inside that little page graphic to make it more readily distinguishable from other toolbar icons. (Any change to the icon which served the same purpose would be wonderful.) Thank you for a super cool add-on!!

Classic Theme Restorer

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Absolutely fantastic. Firefox 29 (whose UI sucks) eliminated icons with text on toolbars....which was a bonehead thing to do. This add-on restores that function plus a whole lot more. The firefox development team needs to stop eliminating features. Leave them as options at the very least, but stop eliminating things. I'm not interested in a chrome look alike. Thank you very much to the creator of this add-on. If you're experiencing anything you don't like about the UI in firefox 29, then install this and give it a shot. Extremely helpful add-on!!
