Amazing functionality that should be built into Firefox imo Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is utterly fantastic. The wide range of sites it works on is amazing. This covers all the sites I use for music at work, bandcamp, soundcloud, and youtube. It is sooo amazing to be able to quickly click the pause button on a pinned tab or use the hotkey from any other tab to pause music when someone stops by my desk, no longer having to switch to tab and paw around at the controls on the site to try to pause the music while someone is talking to me. This lets me keep my browser (and desktop in general) more professional-looking and helps maintain my privacy from random passerby.

My only tiny complaint is that the hotkey doesn't have an option to get picked up by the media play/pause button but a single line in an autohotkey script can fix that right up ("Media_Play_Pause:: SendEvent ^!p"), thus allowing me to play/pause tabs with a single key press whenever the browser has focus.

Ideal for music at work Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Play/pause YouTube music without having to open the tab which shows potentially NSFW videos.

perfect! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This was just what I was looking for. Allows you to play or pause a video without visiting the tab. no restart needed.

Absolutely essential for anyone who listens to videos in the background Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Gives you the power to pause/play videos without losing your train of thought by having to scuffle with another tab.

Works great with one side effect Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Does exactly what it says it'll do, except that it also sometimes prevents the name of the tab from changing unless you move it around in the tab bar. This only happens when the addon becomes active in a tab. It's minor but annoying and can become confusing if you've changed (for example) youtube videos.

Just what I was looking for (+ minor bug report) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love it when someone reads my mind and develops an app or addon!

Works perfectly thank you.

I'd just like to report that the extra play/pause button doesn't really fit into a pinned tab - which I use for soundcloud and mixcloud as well gmail, calendar etc. It's cosmetically a bit ugly but functionally fine so I'm going to keep the plugin activated thank you!

I'll see if there is a FF about:config option to widen my pinned tabs in the mean time. Hmm there isn't - it looks like I can do some CSS hacks, but another time...

Thank you for the plugin!

Update:

I couldn't resist tweaking... I put this in my chrome/userChrome.css file in the profile directory - copy the userChrome-example.css file as a starting point.

.tabbrowser-tab[pinned=true] {
min-width: 50px !important;
max-width: 50px !important;
}

It makes my other pinned tabs too wide, but I can live with this for now!

Update 2: I'm using FF 44.0.2 in Windows 7 (yuck... not my choice!) - my add-ons are ABP, Brief, Firebug, Nuke Anything Enhanced, and Play/Pause. No themes or tab-related add-ons that I know of. Happy with my hack if no-one else reports this!

Awesome!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This little add-on does what it says and does it well!

Play/Pause kicks ass for streaming music from the web under linux as many streaming services won't provide their own lightweight clients...

Thanks and a great utility :)

Excellent. Works perfectly. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Anything that helps me save mouse-strokes and makes me more efficient is a winner. This add-on does one simple thing and does it perfectly.

Really useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works perfectly and super responsive dev. Great job.

awesome addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

hey man this is really revolutionary and awesome, and your code is so nice , but on the tabs the addon can interfere with other very usefull addons, it would be super nice if thered be a little panel with all the media tabs listed with playpause button.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.7). 

Compatibility with TabMix Plus improved in Play/Pause v1.0.8.

As for the additional panel to toolbar controls, there are currently no plans to implement them. This might, however, change, if I get more user requests for that.

great addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Was very pleased to find this add-on, and it works great. But could we please have an option to reverse the buttons, e.g. show 'pause' while sound is playing, and 'play' (triangle) when it's paused? This may sound counter-intuitive, but it's what I've grown to expect, and getting them the other way is a little confusing.

Edit: The author updated the plugin with my request! Five stars!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.4). 

Option added in v1.0.5.

So great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is so useful, thanks a lot!

Suggestion for future updates: implement a fast forward button (when listening to playlists).

Great addon, changes how I browse! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Well done, Daniel. This little 13kB add-on is very powerful. Visually knowing exactly what tab is playing a video and not having to switch tabs in order to pause or play said video is a big time-saver! As I'm using TitleURL, which only shows favicon-sized tabs, I have tweaked the Play/Pause button to appear just below the favicon. And it still works perfectly. Five stars!

Edit: I have found that this addon does not work in Private Browsing tabs. Until that is fixed, I must change my rating to 4 stars instead of five.

Edit #2: Using v1.0.4+, the fix is not robust. When I have a Private Tab/Window open, I have to disable/re-enable Play/Pause in order for the Play/Pause icon to show up.
Another issue I see is that the new Mute icon for Fx42 disappears when this addon is enabled. In order for both to show, I have had to disable/reenable the addon while a video is playing.

Great Little Addon That Really Helps big time. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I tend to open multiple tabs when watching videos on youtube. This helps a lot. I can visually see which tab has the play button and which have a pause.

This is now one of my favorite addons when watching videos.

Thanks!

Does not work tried on youtube Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Probably a conflict with one of my addons, probably glassmyfox or custom tab with, they are the only ones I use to modify the tabs... will try a vanilla firefox, and don't worry I don't have flash player installed so I'm 100% sure the video is HTML5

EDIT: Never mind, I just had to go to the addon options and turn on the enable in embedded videos... for some reason thats how youtube.com works, maybe because of my adblocker... who knows, but now works
If you really want to avoid bad reviews you should have the option turned on by default, there are a lot of dumb users out there and won't bat an eye to give a bad review just because they don't know how to use the addons options.
