Needs one simple change to be great Rated 4 out of 5 stars

EDIT: Discovered a bug! I recently installed Tree Style Tab 0.19.2017031101 by Piro (piro_or), which is supposed to work fine with ColorfulTabs, but the Tab_Stack now gets stuck ON even if you have it disabled. It doesn't matter where you set Tree Style Tab to (left, right, top, or bottom) it always shows up at the top (and above the tabs if set to top).

Because this bug didn't happen straight away (it was after a restart of Firefox or two), I thought maybe it was just an error or something and tried reinstalling both addons. When one or the other was installed, nothing happened, but having both caused the bug. I noticed ColorfulTabs would never install clean (it always remembered my settings), so I went into about:config to look around and, on a whim, set 'extensions.treestyletab.compatibility.ColorfulTabs' to false. This fixed the bug!! I don't know how or why, or if it will stick/cause other issues, but it got rid of the stuck Tab-Stack.


Original Review:
To be clear, this is a great addon and I really like it. But, for the love of god give us an option to turn off the godawful gloss on the top of the tabs!!! You can turn it off already for the 'currently selected tab', so it should be easy to offer an option to turn it off completely. I ask this because it is horribly gaudy/a huge eyesore with dark colors and, as someone with photophobia, the bright pastels this addon starts with are a huge no.

Also, as far as I can tell, it's impossible to change the quick color options that appear in the tab context menu.

Not working Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This add-on is not working with Classic Theme Restorer any more. It stopped working about 10 days ago.

Default color missing Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I need to color only few domains and I like to let other tabs with a default color.
This addon colors all tabs.

NOT Multi-Process Compatible Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Despite being marked as multi-process compatible as of v31.1.3, the domain-based coloring of tabs feature is still entirely broken with multi-process enabled.

This add-on is still excellent for single-process users, but it's disingenuous to claim multi-process compatibility when key features are broken.

Great add-on, install page shows dodgy ads Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The extension does what it says. However, upon installation it opened up a landing page with ads for sexual services. Not acceptable!

Nice Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hello,

How to disable all the styling of the tab and keep only the colors feature?
Example: Spacing around tab increase to much...

Great add-on.

Thanks,
Lino

Not "Verified" Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This morning my ColorfulTabs was updated. However there was a conflict with Personas Plus. I disabled PP, and CT still had issues. I uninstalled CT and tried to re-install CT. But FF is now claiming the CT is not verified and will not install it.

BTW, Loved it before it broke.

Missing one big feature Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The addon would be 5 stars if only it would have the option to automatically color the tab based on the color of the tab's favicon.

It's working now, but it took a while to troubleshoot Rated 3 out of 5 stars

WORKAROUND INSIDE. This didn't work out-of-the-box for me. First, it broke the Aurora channel 52.0a2 (Jan 13th build I think). So I downgraded to regular Firefox.

I made a fresh profile install of 50.0.2 release branch, and it still didn't work. It seems all the default themes override tab color. I also have Tab Mix Plus, Tree Style Tabs, and Session Manager so I can't rule out a conflict there.

In order to get this to work, I had to install "Classic Theme Restorer" and play with the options on "Tabs - Page 1". Specifically, I had to change the two drop-down menus at the top of "Tabs - Page 1" until I found a setting that worked with Colorful Tabs.

There are also bugs with Colorful Tabs where it stops applying color to new pages for a while. And another bug where changing some of the settings will cause Colorful Tabs to break until the browser is restarted. Related to that, sometimes the settings take effect instantly and other times it takes a browser restart to change them.

I wish the developer would work on specifically ensuring compatibility with other frequently used addons, such as Tab Mix Plus and even the default installation Firefox theme.

ColorfulTabs A REAL USEFUL ADD-ON Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Humans have colour vision, so why not colorful tabs, especially when each domain can be user preset!

Superb... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

At first I could not realized which tab is active and I decided to uninstall it. But looking at "options" I saw two ways to do so... I liked it...

Tabs more visible Rated 5 out of 5 stars

With colors, the tabs get much more contrast. One can group by domains, etc.

Nice is also to highlight the active tab with bold letters, leaving more blurred letters in the other tabs.

The FIRST Modification I make to a New Install Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm a Power User, I never shut down and always have at least 20 tabs open. Colorful Tabs lets me find the content I'm looking for in a flash.
It also makes switching back and forth between tabs very easy.
It might be new or that I just found the option, but I can make non-selected tabs slightly dimmer, brightening my current tab. A small change but it helps quite a bit.
I've donated in the past and I will do so again. Over the years this Add On has become essential to me.
I appreciate your good work.
Thank You!

Doesn't work with Tab Mix Plus Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It doesn't color tabs. While I have Tab MIx Plus colors set on the current tab and tabs that are loading. I have no other preferences. So this extension does not override a TMP specified color, it also does color a tab with no specified color.

I need TMP for such things as removing Session Manager and keeping Fx from closing the browser when I close the last tab and for editing the menus. Other extensions override TMP colors if none are specified.

I am removing this now.
