Selected Search

If it stops working, a refresh should fix it Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

Selected Search is excellent. It's just not working for everyone lately.

I'm actually a user of Selected Search Plus, which apparently branched off of this add-on, Selected Search. SSP stopped working when I moved from FF44 to FF45, so I tried replacing it with Selected Search, which I saw was updated recently. Same deal, didn't work.

As some earlier reviews suggested, refreshing Firefox (deleting all user data) returned Selected Search to functionality, so something in mature profiles is probably screwing it up.

Since I'm not ready to toss out my profile I'll have to use an alternative like Swift Selected Search, which is almost but not quite as full-featured as Selected Search, until my next browser revamp. I look forward to when I can return to using Selected Search or a derivative, though.

Swift Selection Search

Very useful. Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

Glad to see something that does a good job of replacing the excellent but ailing Selected Search / Plus add-ons.

Thankfully, Swift Selection Search has most of the customizability of its forebears. Two additional tweaks would be nice:
- Ability to have selection box appear without the little animation; maybe let user set time in ms for appearance to occur, with 0ms being an option
- Ability to have selection box appear relative to mouse cursor instead of furthest-right selected character; current furthest-right character-relative behavior can make the box appear far away from cursor when selecting multiple lines

Aside from that, very pleased.

Imagus

Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternen

Functionality is great; it looks and feels much sleeker than my old standby, Thumbnail Zoom Plus. Good performance.

Unfortunately it seems to have a major memory leak. After a few hours of casual browsing, Firefox memory usage exceeds 2GB. Without Imagus, I'm usually well below 1GB, despite running many tabs and other add-ons. After testing, the difference seemed to be Imagus.

Another issue was that certain settings never saved unless I went into about:config and edited them myself. Maybe this FF version is not as polished as its Chrome counterpart (which I haven't used).

Puzzle Bars

Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

Thank you very much for such a necessary Barlesque / A Better Firefox Add-on Bar replacement. This (like so much other) functionality was sorely missing from Australis.

I have a few suggestions for further refinement that I will put on GitHub.

Tab Utilities Phoenix

Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

Indispensable add-on. Best implementation of vertical tabs in any browser / add-on I've found. Thank you for bringing it back from the brink.

That said, today's Firefox Nightly brings with it the new, much-maligned user interface known as Australis, and it breaks Tab Utilities, along with many other add-ons. Here are the two Firefox Nightly build threads from the day before and the day of Australis landing:

Hope it's not too hard to fix! But I think many of us will probably need additional add-ons to get our Firefoxes back to working the way we like.

Tab Utilities

Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

Great news! There is a new version, from a Chinese FF community, that works in FF23 and later (currently up to Nightly v26). See page 167 of the forum thread for links:

Tab Counter

Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

Great at doing what it's supposed to, with a dash of customizability.

Omnibar

Great Spacesaver Bewertet mit 4 von 5 Sternen

Omnibar is a key add-on that, along with others, helps me reduce all of Firefox's top-screen clutter to a single row.

I have two small suggestions.
1. I would like an option to reset to the default search engine after searching with a non-default one.
2. It would be nice to be able to wheel-scroll the search engines without having to hold Ctrl.
