THIS Custom Button Add-on has been totally Abandoned Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This add-on has been completely abandoned.

I would suggest that you use the other Custom Buttons add-on, which is extremely similar, & kept up to date (FF v22+ as of August 2013)

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/custom-buttons/?src=ss

The forum for that button is located here:

http://custombuttons.sourceforge.net/forum/index.php?sid=dbda5dfbb30228a9821b2b93338bb7a0

Many of the original CustomButtons2 buttons will work with this CustomButtons add-on.

The people on that forum are usually quite friendly, & the programmers amongst them are usually eager to assist you with your custom button needs---as long as you are kind in like.

Just installed on FF10 with 50+ other addons.
The "custombutton://" protocol used in the forums isn't recognized and a horrible bug occurs where an empty panel occupies half the screen...
4 stars rating, because FF10 is very recent, my own FF config might be causing this conflict and i'm hoping you'll be able to fix it...

I absolutely LOVE this feature! Especially the page up/down! says it's not compatible with newer version, but you have the option to add it anyway and it does work! just a pain to have to do every time Firefox updates and I forget how, lol

This user has a previous review of this add-on.

A big waste of time! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I tried both Custom Buttons and the websites were down for days. It wasn't even possible to see if they really could do anything or not. It appears that the makers have abandoned them. Doing my best Dr. Mccoy imitation: "It's dead Jim!"

the best add on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

this add on is the only reason i do not want to upgrade to firefox 4 or 5guys i do not write software but your add on is the only one that makes firefox really worth itwhat needs to be done to bring it back to life?
I should hope the mozilla guys understand that lots of updates is fine but if their differentators (eg this add on) are not following then they are the same as the rest. might as well join chrome or ie.
windows 7 has buttons like this why does firefox 5 not have them?

Bring Back the Buttons! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Website Infected? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Trying to follow links on the 'button database' alphabetic list on the extension website http://custombuttons2.com/en-us gave bizarre results, finally requiring me to restart my PC before I could shut down Firefox. The site appears to be dangerous and could well be infected.

where could I find a new button? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

where could I find a new button?the cuttomsite2.com is down.

Custom Buttons² vs Custom Buttons? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Can anyone tell me what the differences are between Custom Buttons² and Custom Buttons, and why not have just one of them since they both seem to do pretty much the same thing?

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love your add-on, but dude, seriously.. Get better web hosting, your site is ALWAYS down..

These JavaScript button installers actually give you more than you would expect. Whole chunks of code can be programmed into them. Be careful what you use them for! Apart from that, this is an awesome add-on! :)

Great, but beware! Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This extension is absolutely awesome, the ability to write, share and add new buttons is outstanding. It also is really cool for hackers/developers because it provides a shortcut into firefox extension writing for anyone who'd always wanted to but had feared the learning curve. With this extension you can create your own firefox extension literally by clicking on a button!

BUT

The security implications are considerate. I wrote a few buttons by now, and I have to say, a button can do absolutely anything!
A hacker could modify the behaviour of other buttons installed, change the way the custombuttons² extension works (to prevent uninstalling a button for example or hide that its still there) and change firefox behaviour visibly and invisibly. You could write a basically harmless and useful button, which one year in the future loads additional code from a URL that then spies out your VISA card # every time u enter it on a webpage and sends it to a russian/chinese server.

Buttons are just links, not signed and not trustworthy, yet with all the power of a full fledged firefox extension. Keep that in mind when installing buttons, and always, always, review their code (Which I think is one of the best features of custombuttons2, you can view the code in the rightclick menu of the button install link without installing it :))

I'd give you five stars for this cool extension, but damn, I have the feeling by installing it I just opened Pandora's box >:>>>

@developers. your webpage is down again!

An essential addon. I prefer to have a few functions more easily assessable than they are in the context menu, so buttons are a good way of doing it.

My only gripe is the long context menu when right clicking a button - some folks are quite simple and will never use all those options. Luckily I managed to slim it down.
