You simply want the find bar to disappear after a search. And this add-on does simply that. So it is simply perfect.

Hide Menubar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I was seeking it by "main bar" instead of "menu bar". God. It works with Firefox 3.0.13. AFAIK, perfectly.

Plus, the Alt shortcut to show it is just the right one. This is great.

Thank you!!!!

Hide Find Bar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Perfect addon title, perfect feature, perfect GUI (no GUI). Thank you!

Maybe this should be default behavior in Firefox. But I don't know how others use the Find Bar.

View Source Chart

Awesome Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Between View Page Source and DOM Inspector... and colored. Great!!!

Just a feature request: Make the indentation survive copy pasting. (e.g. by indenting each line with its corresponding blank spaces, but, hiding them in a span with display:none). 4 spaces by level. What do you think real housewife?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.7). 

NoScript Security Suite

Too Fat Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I have been using NoScript for years but now I stopped. It has become too much heavy. It does too much things and I don't know how to stop it from do them.

The most notable effect is in Gmail. Using Gmail with NoScript causes near 20% CPU core resources to be used. And, furthermore, it gives "Attach a file" a delay of no less than 4 seconds.

I precisely installed NoScript originally to save watts (and heat, and battery) when visiting websites with lots of JavaScript running and annoying. But currently, at the end of the day, is worse the cure is worse than the disease.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.9.5). 

JavaScript Options

Preliminar OK! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I also switched from NoScript. NoScript is becoming too much heavy. I suspect it causes near 20% of one CPU core usage with GMail. Ironically, I was using NoScript mainly because of keep system load under control. You know. Safe Porn.

JavaScript Options is pretty simple. I hope it also prevents JavaScript from doing crazy things in my computer. In my case phishing/scam control is not a requeriment.

Sothink Web Video Downloader for Firefox

Use FlashGot Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Use FlashGot instead. This violates the GPL by stealing FlashGot's code.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.1). 

FireFTP

Great (but remove that popup) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It is great. I tested it many months ago and it was very unstable and sluggish but now is almost perfect. Just wonder if you can replace the "Login failed" popup by a message in any other place than a pop-up. Pop-ups sucks seriously!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.4). 

QuietUrl

Currently annoying but potentially nice Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I liked it because I set a pair of shortcuts for spanish and catalan dictionaries:
"rae:" -> http://buscon.rae.es/draeI/SrvltConsulta?TIPO_BUS=3&LEMA=
"cat:" -> http://ec.grec.net/cgi-bin/AppDLC3.exe?APP=CERCADLC&GECART=

But I uninstalled it because it puts the focus in the addressbar when mouse hovers it, and this results disturbing when you are trying to write something in a form.

The add-on is quite flexible in options; if only it would be a bit more flexible and allowed to disable the address bar focusing, I would install it again.

Thank you and regards!
