Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love this add on. After reading robku's comment, I tried LoL and IMO, MLB is far superior.

There's one thing I like about LoL though: the ids start (at 0) at the top of the current viewport. So when you enable the ids after having scrolled down, the id of the link you want is usually still in the single or double digits, while MLB's ids are in the double or triple digits.

It would be nice to have this feature available as an option in MLB.

Nice, but this is better (and you should try do even better than it :) ) Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I have to say that based on the description and comments there is already almost exactly similar extension except there are no problems with link id's cluttering the way - it works by showing id's only when requested (by activation key). If it ever messes up by using same hotkey as FF or another extension you can change the keys (or use keyconfig to change the other key).
It's named LoL and it's a fork of an old no-longer supported HaH (Hit-a-Hint). It works perfectly with any links, dialogs, fields, etc... Press Ctrl while writing the hint number and you can open the link on new tab even!

Still do note that I'm not here to offend - I wish the best for your project but for now IMHO the one I use is the best choice. I might start my own for of it however as it does not offer one feature that I would really love to do without mouse: Copy a link or image address!
Still, maybe if you can reach the minimum of same quality that LoL has you have good chances - and if on top of it you do what I said to miss in LoL too then you will most certainly have me switching from LoL to Mouseless Browsing. Provided that you achieve that before I make my own for to do it that is ;)

Light and clean but stands in my way Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I installed Mouseless Browsing and used it for some time until I noticed the link ids are integrated to the web page itself (in the page's html) and so:
- the links ids are copied on copy/paste
- they are printed altogether with the page
- it clutters my view with some websites presenting lists of small links in a table form (eg calendars).

However, that's a nice addon, probably designed with lightness in mind, and that's what I liked much at first. Just no longer adequate to my way of surfing.

Suggestion Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great add on, I just want to make a suggestion, you would add a configurable key for make ads visibles just while the key keep pushed.

It seems like some sites break, with mouseless browsing. For example kino.to isn't loading its content, I get JS-Errors instead. What really bugs: MB isn't even active (it's switched off in its options). But when I disable MB-Addon complete, everything is working again. :-(

i love the concept. i use a laptop, and most of the time i don't have a mouse with me.

but when this addon is ebabled, my 1280x800 screen can't really handle it. whenever a page has a lot of links, the huge amount of numbers distort it. even this page is not rendered properly.

maybe if i had a 17 inch display..

oh well.. the concept is very cool, but i can't use it

For PS3 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I think this is perfect for the Linux system on the PlayStation 3 ! You can use than the PS3 keybord without a mouse.
This Plugin is great!

Exactly the Aid I Wanted Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Using too much mouse a day some times cause some tiny ache in my forefinger, and this kind of tool was in my wish-list for quite some time. I thought it may not be that easy to implement mouseless browsing due to some many clickable spots inside a web page, this addon solves this problem brilliantly. Thumps up!

Great Plugin.

It will be used together with our open-source speechrecognition program simon (http://www.simon-listens.org) to surf the internet only with numbers. Works great!

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great add-on, which works on tabs, links, text boxes and lots more. As a person that strongly favours keyboard shortcuts over using the mouse, I had been keeping an eye open for an add-on like this until I came across it just last week (week beginning 06/04/2009)! My only criticism is that it does not work for dialog boxes.

Advice to users: in "General Options", select "show ids only on demand", so that pages with a large quantity of links etc. do not take so long to load. Often you want to read some of the content before clicking a link anyway. Furthermore, when typing in the codes, you must be very rapid, otherwise it might confuse, for example, "12" with "1"...

might use Quick Find instead Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I think that this add–on is ok, but you should also know that Firefox has shortcuts to links by the quick "links only" search. Just press apostrophe ( ' ) and type in the first letter or two in the links text (or name) and Firefox focuses them. ( This still does not work on inputs, so I always search for a label or text sthraight before them and press good old tab ;)

Fantastic idea, I wish every program (office, corel, TexnicCenter,... PLEASE!) came with numbers instead of loads of unmemorizable short-cuts. Makes my life much easier! Side remark: when opening links in new tab the focus on the originating page might change. Furthermore: in a series of basically the same page (series of fotos in an online magazin, webmail, etc.) the numbers for the same function, e.g., "next" change. Maybe it would be possible to identify parts of pages that are the same as the last one and to assign the same number to them?

I dunno about what those lazy people are talking about it taking too long to type in a few numbers to go to a link. Just use the numpad, and it takes half a second to put in a three digit number.

Typeaheadfind is so much better Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Enable typeaheadfind, by typing about:config in your address bar, ignore the silly warning, filter by typing in the search bar typeah then select startlinks..make that false, links only ..make that true. It will do everything this one does and so much easier.

One of the tools that I install any time I have a fresh installation of FireFox.

Ignore the negative reviews that I saw on the first page, the only thing they've achieved is the fact I'm now writing my first review for a Firefox Addon (Change Around nowadays).

Works brilliantly. Especially when you can't find the wireless mouse!

C - 'could do better' Rated 3 out of 5 stars

it's ok but to be honest sometimes a bit pointless, especially on sites like google where typing in a three digit number is much slower than clicking. Also wrecks the graphics and layout of some sites such as Yahoo! Search by displaying lots of crowded numbers.
