  • no work

  • trying this add-on was wasted time!

  • Kein Symbol in der Toolbar, kein Kontext-Menü, gar nichts. Gott allein weiß, wozu das gut sein soll...

  • what a pity, but... it do not work... setting page also do not work (just the placeholder names appear).

  • No aparece ninguna opción para dividir la ventana.

  • Well, it did not work with FF 48.

  • It flickers a bit and then opens a blank new tab.

  • It un-maximizes the current window, then opens the link in a new window, also un-maximized. That is not useful.

    Firefox 33.

  • Doesn't work with Firefox 31.0, it simply opens a new blank window!

  • It simply don't work

    Firefox 30

  • inútil

    tudo que essa coisa faz é abrir outra janela, não é "split screen" como o maxthon browser faz.

  • Wow... super useful. Others complaining about 'reproducing native functionality' in splitting into windows. Sure... but now I can do that in a single click. Friggin' rocks!

  • This isn't a spilt-window browsing addon, this just does what you can do it 2 seconds by opening a new window and tiling vertically. But it does it as a horrible hack, that's buggy and slow. Don't bother.

  • Fox Splitter works really well! I only have one complaint, when splitting, it does not save the state of the webpage. This is slightly annoying but I can deal with it...

  • Works like advartised. I use it mainly for the synced scrolling feauture.

  • I have tried it and it works fine on Fifrefox 21.

  • Back when this first came out it worked golden.Now nothing but bugs and frustration to get the page to split correctly and visibly..had to reinstall cause it wasn't working at all. Still has bugs... fix this garbage please

  • Not work at all. I have installed it for a long time, but I never saw it could work. Windows XP SP3 FF19.0.2.

  • Fox Splitter inexplicably has the description belonging to an earlier project by the same name. *This* extension clones the Firefox window so there's two of them -- the old one, which the description is all about, really does let the user show more than one website within a single window.

    To be fair, I'm going to review the extension as if the description didn't exist or was marginally accurate.

    It works fairly well for what it's intended to do (create two synchronized windows), and has all of the options that a power user could hope for; I also really appreciated that it's a No-Restart install.

    I did run into some problems, using Firefox 19 for Linux:
    -- The location bar on the newer window was halfway obscured by the webpage; nothing I tried would fix it.
    -- The toolbar-hiding settings couldn't apply to the add-on bar, as it's coded for the defunct statusbar.
    -- It was impossible to align the windows without putting them both against the bottom of the screen; one would automatically jump a little higher/lower than the one I moved.
    -- When I resized a window and its twin did so as well, they moved but still ended up overlapping quite a bit.

    If I was doing the right kinds of online research right now, I'd find this extension very handy, so I'm keeping it bookmarked. Given the programmer's seeming inability to update things to match changes in Firefox (or his/her own extension) I assume "Fox Splitter" won't exist by then. :-/

  • nice idea, but I expected something totally different.
    Not Resizing all Firefox windows but using compositions and "windows" in Firefox main window itself.
    This plugin just tries to resize the window with the classic WM functions which might work on Windows but not on my Mac!

    Also I have had different Problems opening FF Settings, etc. as long the window was "resized" to a 10x10 px "box"

    That's ridiculous! Sorry guys..

  • Installed it, see the icon, pressed it, it just opened a new window on the right side and adjusting the main window on the left side.

    And then when clicked on that icon again, every tabs I'd all got screwed up and opened in its own separate tiny/micro sized window. Using Firefox 14.0

    Do not use it. Its horrible and you will loose your tabs history as I did.

    I couldn't see such a problem on my environments: Firefox 14.0.1 on Windows Vista and Ubuntu 12.04. Do you use any other addon which can conflict with multiple windows managed by Fox Splitter?

  • horrible buggy shit

  • Sucks that it doesn't work like the last one because of that bug, but still better then Split Pannel IMO. Thanks, almost thought it was dead! Full 5/5*'s for you my friend.

  • Is there some reason why more screen real estate has to be wasted with toolbars on multiple windows when the original split browser extension worked great? Since the developer has decided this design is somehow "better", would someone please pick up the old extension and update it to stay current with Firefox changes? Heck, until the recent point release, I was able to keep it working through 10.0.0 by changing the rdf file in the xpi. Splitting is a great idea, this design is not.

    I think you are unaware of broken behaviors of the old Fox Splitter (1.x) on Firefox 10.

    Or, it is only by blind luck that the old one works for you with Firefox 10. I cannot maintain such a huge (and spagetthi) code anymore. Even if it become incompatible to Firefox 11 or future versions, I cannot fix the bug.

  • the new Firefox get worse and worse. First the missing Google Gears and now this addon in stead of split brpwser. This addon is a catastrophy: slow, windows are jumping all around, you have in fact no splitted browser, but several firefox windows with a strang jumping behavior, very strange. (The old split browser was the best, but no longer working)
