- by pbrandao, 10 years agoRated 4 out of 5Good addon. The override compatibility is on Tools/Nightly Tester Tools/Force Addon Compatibility
It then sets it for all addons. No longer the per-addon option.
I also only wanted for this, unfortunately Compatibility Reporter (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/15003/) is not compatible with Thunderbird 3.3a :(
- by Uncle Spellbinder, 10 years agoRated 4 out of 5Love this add-on. Missed it for a while. Glad to see 4.0 compatibility with this update.
Though NTT really needs to be listed in the Firefox Menu button - rather than under 'tools' - those of us that don't use the Menu-bar must press ALT to get to Tools. Hopefully this can be addressed in future updates.

This add-on is not going to be updated anymore, see
For add-on compatibility use Mozilla's "Add-on Compatibility Reporter" https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/15003/
If you need this for newer nightly builds, there's been some attempts at compatibility, see https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/search/?q=nightly+tester+tools
If you think you can do better, grab the source and hack, source code at http://hg.oxymoronical.com/extensions/NightlyTesterTools/
- by jtrag, 10 years agoRated 5 out of 5I think it compliments the official addon well. Here's a full feature list from this plugin's official webiste:
This is a list of features in Nightly Tester Tools. Since the extension is designed for multiple applications some features will not be available in all apps. The primary application I develop for is Firefox so everything should be there, where a feature isn’t in an app then I’ll try to note it here but if you think not mentioned something then please let me know.
NTT provides useful tools for testers trying to use extensions that claim to be incompatible with the nightly builds.
Mark a disabled extension as compatible with the current build
Get easy access to the setting to automatically allow all incompatible extensions
NTT can modify the titlebar to show almost any information about the build you are running. By default it displays the current build ID but it can be customised to display the profile you are using, the application version, the locale, the list is quite extensive.
When you’re testing a build, one of the key pieces of information that lets you find regression range and compare bugs with other testers is the application’s build ID. NTT provides the following options:
Copy build ID to clipboard
Enter build ID into the current textbox
Add a toolbar button for copying the build ID to the current textbox
NTT has the functionality to take a screenshot of any window open in the application.
Take screenshot on timer
Crop screenshot to only show the area you need
Save as jpeg or png
Upload direct to Imageshack
Ever had a session crash Firefox but you couldn’t restore it because one of the tabs is a definite crasher. This new feature allows you to start without restoring your session then pop up a list of the previous session and choose which tabs to restore. Currently under development and if you have any suggestions for the UI then please contact me.
Every nightly tester knows that nightly build crash. Breakpad is essential for analysing those crashes and identifying whether bugs are already filed or need to be.
Displays recent incidents in quick to access menu
Displays all incidents in a sidebar
The leak guage script is built into NTT. Simply open the leak reporter and tell it where to find your leak log file and you get a full display of leak information.
Toggle what kinds of leaks to display
Highlights leaking objects as they are used
- by Jeep70, 10 years agoRated 1 out of 5um... where do i start...
ALL YOU DO IS UPDATE VERSIONS
AND IT STILL DOESN""T WORK FOR FF4.0B2!!!
HOW CAN I FIX COMPATIBILITY THIS EXTENSION ISN'T COMPATIBLE EITHER!!! FIX IT TO 4.0 AND I WILL GO TO 4 STARS.
bye bye :D
- by Ben41235454, 10 years agoRated 5 out of 5Think, maybe, Mossop, the dev, might actually be aware that FF has a new version out, and could do without a constant drone of "Please update"?
"... Those with a sharp memory will remember that I said just under 2 years ago that I was ceasing work on my extensions in my spare time. I suggested that Nightly Tester Tools might still receive the odd update but obviously that hasn’t happened and the truth is that I can’t see it happening anytime soon. I’m too busy with that whole real life thing to even be able to work on projects I do enjoy, let alone maintain old stuff that no longer really interests me. ..."
