Neat extension, but from what I can tell it doesn't work with Firefox 29 because Mozilla has done away with the throbber in that version.

Smart approach in tiny addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

But this approach with small improvements can make a revolution in web browsing.
Let imagine that similar trobbering is applied to every Bookmark folder.
What can we do with these folders now?
Left click gives us list of bookmarks/inner folders and right click - bookmark context menu.
That's all.
But we have also left double click, right double click, middle click and Alt+(all kinds of clicks).
In other words we can call without opening folder's list 8 bookmarks per folder!
And if we could distinguish short click from long click (like on back-forward navigation arrows) we can cancel Alt-accompany (it is less comfotable).
Moreover, we don't need assign addresses - the bookmarks themseves contain them and, let say, 5-8 top bookmarks of each folder can be called by this way.
The property of each bookmark defines - to open it in sidebar or in tab and new tab or current tab is common for all bookmarks.
I think, such implementation will be even simpler. And it can be another addon.

A simple improvement that does exactly what it's supposed to do. Thank you.

Some reviewers have asked for more features, such as changing the appearance of the throbber. Please do not. Feature bloat is the bane of FF extensions. The best extensions are usually tiny, simple adjustments that make a surprisingly disproportionate improvement to the user experience. Too often those extensions grow and grow because of user requests, until they little resemble the great little wonders that they once were.

Thanks again to the developer. :-)

I have used this on my pc for ages and I love it. Coming back here and looking at the description I realized that I probably don't use nearly half the features that I could. However, my school gave me a mac to use and I noticed that when I right click on the throbber it comes up with the toolbar menu, which although it does not affect the performance is still a bit distracting. However I love my pc version and would thoroughly recommend it.

i too look forward to having a customisable throbber animation. it'd even be nice if there were special animations for certain actions, so it could post itself when opening my email accounts or lick it's lips when i go shopping... but it doesn't and it's still great, thanks!

awesome little add-on, very intuitive user interface, and quite easy to work with

Suggestion Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Suggestion: Possibility to choice a few appearances of the throbber-icon for instance: a turning fox / a colored throbber / a turning little home, aso....

Multi-tasking Essential Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is a versatile, easy-to-use add-on, with uses from the beginner to tech titans. Having used the original, I found this options interface just a little easier to use.

The most useful purpose of Awesome Throbber for me is to assign multiple sites to one function, and assign a description to the each click. For example, my middle-click is "Networking", which opens 3 popular social networking sites, in tabs without focus. Right-click is "Homework", with 4 reference sites in tabs, etc.
A list of descriptions show up when you mouseover the throbber to remind you what you assigned where.

I saw mention of conflict with Mr Tech Toolkit, but I have problems with Mr Tech on other add-ons, so it seems to be on their end not this one.

This is in my top ten list. Thanks!

Must-Have Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I watch a lot of movies online, and now I have a shortcut right there for hulu and fancast. the throbber is there anyway, so I don't have to clutter up my screen with a hot button to take me right to my favorite URLs.

Underneath it all Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Sounds more promising than Throbber Button, yet in my case- and I think MR Tech Toolkit xt is to blame- both fail to act upon clicks other than left ones. :(

For more covert commands: Personal Menu can open the sidebar and Bookmarks Manager upon clicks on Bookmarks.
