Lack of flexibility, not a true toolbar Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Apparently the author's goal was to make this "toolbar" function like the search bar. As such, it always appears at the bottom of the screen, you have to press F4 to make it visible and ESC to make it disappear. I don't like that.

What I was expecting was a bona fide toolbar that would appear near the top of the window with the other toolbars. I was also expecting to be able to right-click on the toolbar and get the toolbar menu where I could enable or disable it.

I wish it was more like an actual toolbar.

A busca no php.net e em outros canais não funciona na versão 31. Retorna esta mensagem:

"There has been an error from the requisition return!"

O que ainda salva este complemento em minha opinião é o class generator.

looks great! but doesn't work in FF29.0.1 and report "There has been an error from the requisition return!". Really don't know why it's happened.

It doesn't work in FF 23.0. Very nice addon, so it's a sad issue.

Excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Had an issue with it not showing up a while back on FF 11. But having synch'd the machine (FF sync) from a Windows XP machine I had just installed the plugin on to try on, it is now working fine. I would think this is more likely to be FF's fault. Developer responded very quickly - thanks!

Very useful tool stops having to hit Google all the time. Thanks a lot.

Page not found Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I loved use this extension, one of the more useful, but in last month it always leads me to a 4040 page in felipenmoura.org. Please fix this bug. IMHO, the bar worked better in its previous version.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0.4.1-signed.1-signed). 

Thanks for your feedback!

Hello there!
Thanks for your feedback.
About that error...if you update the PHPDevBar, it should NOT be performing requisitions to felipenmoura.org, but to phpdevbar.org!
Although, I'll check it out to see if I find any possible error(I'm already working on an update to get compatible to the next Firefox beta version).

Thanks again, and let's keep in touch!

no customisation support Rated 2 out of 5 stars

It really doesn't suit me to have web-dev tools in the lower left of my screen (where I keep other stuff) - I want to be able to move the toolbar to the top, remove buttons and change the Ctrl+Shift+F hotkey; that one is used by the Web Developer toolbar too, by the way...

Plus, it's a small set of tools taking up a fraction of my wide screen monitor, but I can't add any more buttons to the toolbar they are on, unlike the Web Developer toolbar, which allows you to fill the rest of it up.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0.4.1-signed.1-signed). 

Hello there.

Thanks for your feedback.
Trying to help you using it, I want to tell you that you can use the F4 hotkey as well, to open the phpdevbar, which I'd advise to close after using(esc can do this job).
Just to explain a bit more, we tried to give the PHPDevBar a behavior similar to the native "find" tool, which opens with F3, closes with esc, has just some specific/useful tools, and also, which you keep most of the time closed, showing it only when you need it.

I'll take a look about this idea of yours, to add buttons to it and how I could enable that to this kind of element.
Again, all the feedback is quite welcome and we keep a lot of opened channels for communication(twitter, e-mail, website, facebook, etc), feel free to get in touch(no need to give us 2 stars before sending a feedback, next time, though), we will hear you and do our best to improve this addon, specially because the users and communities are exactly what make this addon better.

We will work on what you said and do our best to increase its quality and accessibility.
Thanks for your feedback.

Helpful reference, huge icon Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Pretty helpful for quick PHP reference and some helper utils, plus the added benefit of making your add-on bar much more prominent :)

Uncustomizable Toolbar Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The add-on work properly on Firefox 4, but the toolbar is not customizable, after installation, the toolbar appear below the address bar, but if you show toolbar through toogle button, it appear above the address bar instead, and it's quite annoying.

I hope the toolbar will be more customizable in the next version.

Fullscreen behaviour correct? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

When i tested your addon with Firefox 3.6.6 in fullscreen mode (F11), i see a thick gray bar on top of my screen (with no visible functionality).

After i disabled your extension, the gray bar was gone!

Tweaking userchrome.css with the usual hacks found on Google did not help. Please review your extension, if necessary with non-standard screen resolutions (mine was 1400 x 1050 as i am using a laptop)... Thanks.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2.3). 

Hello there.
We have fixed that problem in a few updates ago.
We also changed the look of it and increased its performance.
Could you confirm if it's working fine now for you?
I hope you can enjoy it and find it useful.

All the feedback, ideas, suggestions and criticisms are welcome.
Thanks

This is a marvelous tool! It makes me feel like loading one of my PHPDoc-filled PHP files. Also, the quick documentation reference is a plus!

Thank you very much!

Technical Review for Author Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Felipe, I have pasted a partial, and initial technical review for you here - http://groups.google.com/group/addons-development-brazil/browse_thread/thread/6cb9dd7fc7cea8ae

Basically somehow the menus failed to display when I tested with Mac OSX with Firefox 3.5.1, and, because of that, the AJAX code generated errors in the JavaScript console. I also have a few recommendations for you to make it shine:

* Put your JavaScript code under an object like org.felipe.yourApp so you keep things safe and reduce the risk of conflicts. In our code I see a number of functions declared as global.
* You can use a ../locale directory and keep various sub-directories in there, one for each language. Using this approach you will use entities in the XUL and will be easy for others to help you out and localize for you. Then make sure you at least put a en-US language support , so you can also get reviews and English users going...

Show de bola, embora saiba que é uma ferramenta feita por desenvolvedores para desenvolvedores acho que o visual deixou um pouco a desejar. Mas funciona muito bem.

..eu acho que os links pros sites poderiam estar em um menu, que aparecesse qdo a gente clica nele, igual ao que tem no lado esquerdo pra escolher em qual site se quer fazer a busca. Assim ocuparia menos espaço na tela.

Realmente uma mao na roda para nao precisa acessar nenhum site para procurar as funcoes! Tambem faz a conexao com outra galera da camunidade, soh acrescentaria uma coisa, se tivesse algum site para procurar pro emprego no exterior tambem baseado na linguagem do firefox talvez ? que que acha? seria uma otima opcao, ateh para proporcionar a mesma idea para aqueles que estao no brasil pensando em ir pra fora!
