Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I said once how much I love colorful tabs. It is truly awesome. I still have this opinion, and would like to continue to use Colorful Tabs.

Nevertheless, for years I am having a problem with my tabs going far, far back to the start of the list when a site is downloaded. This happened in my mom's computer too, after I downloaded add-ons there. But she was tired of it and removed the most influential add-ons, what she regarded as bad. Now adding it again, I let ColorfulTabs as the last one and I found that it IS the problem! I will remove it from all computers I have until the problem is fixed, because it is really, really annoying.

It happens in Windows XP, Vista and Seven. I have XP and Seven now.

Also, more recently the text of name of a tab goes weird colors depending on the skin/persona chosen, that I also identified the cause to be Colorful Tabs. It is really annoying. If possible, make us a choice of Colorful Tabs not matching the persona's maker choice, as many people have difficulty with bright-colored text (even because of sight problems or low-quality screens).

Colurful & useful Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Great little addon
I am a web developer and I can colour the tabs differently for dev, staging and production easily - saves allot of confusion

Hopefully the tab text colour changes can be reverted back so I can actuall read the tabs - on Ubuntu they look grey so this addon is a bit problematic for the moment

I've used this extension for years now but I've had to uninstall the most recent version because there is no way to disable the active tab from blinking the text when I hover over it! I've tried every menu option to no avail. Please fix this and I will re-install.

V 18.3 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great add on. One of the few I will add to any PC I'm on.

Please stop the text on selected tab from going through three stages to become bold. This was fixed in a previous update, so the title becoming bold was instant, but has reappeared in the latest update.

Color On Demand was a useful feature as well. Why did it leave?

It would be useful if there was an option in the context menu to add current web page to the Presets menu.

Also, the flashing text would be useful if it was for background tabs that wanted attention i.e. email arrived.

Still an excellent add on.

uncomfortably Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Please return the item in the settings...
Color On Demand (No Color By Default, Right Click
Tab And Set Color Manually)
Very comfortable with it.
It is necessary, that would not have all the tabs were colorful.

Latest update killed this add-on, stay away! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Latest update killed this add-on with pastel colors and light white unreadable text. That unreadable text also blinks and glows blurry, could not remove this add-on fast enough, no options to change anything. Stay away from this one, its horrible.

Nearly perfect Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great add-on, keep up the good work!

N.B. When a tab gets the focus, the tab text style does change twice (font [delay] bold) in 18.1 while the change was instantaneous in 17.9.

Much better now with the white font removed, and no more blinking with tab hover. Thank you Binary Turf, for putting it back to the way I like it.

Hi guys,

i got a reply from the developer team.

Just released an update. Please download at http://www.binaryturf.com/free-software/colorfultabs-for-firefox/.

It fixed the text label and makes the blinking a preference which is disabled by default.

So it will fix our problem about the current update that make some WHITE Font and uncomfortable for user.

Really like the support developer team and this addon. Must try it :)

The best fix! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The new update from the 26th March has been further updated today and the tab writing is back to be black and LEGIBLE. Hooray for Colorful Tabs for having actually listened to the negative feedback about the illegible white writing - and fixed it. Full marks - roll on, Colorful Tabs - and thanks.

beautiful Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have been using this add on for a few years now. It is lovely to look at, and helps me distinguish different tabs at a glance. I can also assign specific colors to my most used domains.

Recently they put out an update that I didn't like, changing the font color. I emailed them, and they changed it within 24 hours. Very prompt response to user requests. Much better response than you would expect from the makers of a free add-on.

I hope they keep this up for years, it is always the first add-on I install.

WTF?! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I've used colorful tabs for so many years. I cannot tell you how disappointed I am that it now has to go. I'm fairly certain that this is an error, but I don't know what really happened. The update I just got makes my tabs completely unreadable and I can't fix it! There is no setting for us to choose our own font colors, to fix it ourselves.

Additionally, to get any support whatsoever users MUST join yet another forum. NOT! I'm sick to death of being forced to visit their personal sites. Either offer support here, or don't put your addon here! That should be the rule for all of them.

Say goodnight Colorful Tabs!

====UPDATE====
Now that I've tinkered around with Tab Mix Plus' tab color settings, I've come to see that I don't even need Colorful Tabs anymore.

Horrible update Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Auto-update without my authorization destroyed my settings. Now the text on the tabs are unreadable and blurry.

Had Colourful Tabs for a few years now and loved it.
This update is absolutely useless! Tabs are now unreadable. They're fuzzy until you hover over them and the contrast between the tab colour and the white lettering means that when they're highlighted they're still impossible to read. The new colours aren't impressive either.
Why change them? They weren't broke!!
