Doesn't work in Fx45. (EDIT) Rated 5 out of 5 stars
EDIT after Version 1.0.3: Works perfectly after the fix! Thanks again, Maëlan! Five stars not just for the functionality of the addon, but also the support by the developer!
This add-on has been an amazing part of my browsing for a long time, even longer than the past two years since its last update in March 2014. However, the latest Firefox version 45.0 has caused the title to no longer show for some reason. I have filed an issue in github about this, but I also wanted to note it in here. Thanks for all the support you've given to this addon in previous years, and I hope you are still available to support it now. Thank you.
Fixed for Fx45+
I’m late but I finally updated the addon to the latest versions of Firefox. I also fixed the display (which slowly degraded with time and Firefox releases…) the best I could.
The new version should be available as soon as the validation process is completed.
Changing to 5 stars Rated 5 out of 5 stars
First of all, great job on this latest version 1.0.2 and fixing the two issues I brought up in my previous review. To me, it looks a lot better with the normal font for the url rather than the monospace font. And it's great to be able to select "Customize" without fear of losing the title! Keep it up!
However, I have hit a snag. For some reason, this add-on will not install on my other computer. An error pops up saying that "this add-on did not load because it did not match the add-on Firefox expected." I have no clue what is wrong, since I was able to install it on my main computer. I tried completely uninstalling Firefox and personal information and reinstalling, but to no avail. I do not know if anyone else has encountered this issue, but it is pretty frustrating for me. EDIT: I have been able to install the latest version.
Other than that, I do have a new feature request. This add-on disables drag-and-drop capability. In other words, I can no longer drag links or selected text into the URL bar, and I am forced to copy-and-paste or employ other ways to navigate. Is there any way you can fix this? EDIT: I do not need this feature anymore, since I use QuickDrag.
Again, keep up the good work and good luck with your classes!
EDIT: I have also found a bug in which the title sometimes gets stuck on one title, no matter what tab I have selected. This happens after browsing regularly for some time. I do not know how it happens.
EDIT #2: I don't see this issue anymore. 5/5 stars.
Really great, but... Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I really, really like this add-on, and I would prefer it over the "Page Title" add-on, except that there are two things I do not like. One is a bug, and the other is a personal preference: 1) After I click "Customize" in the toolbar, the page titles fail to appear in the url bar--instead, it leaves the url bar blank; 2) I do not like the change in font when selecting the URL--is there a way to allow the user to choose the font?
Until the first bug is fixed, I will not use this add-on.
EDIT: Updated to Version 1.0.2, and both items have been addressed (no pun intended)! I am now using this add-on, and I have changed the rating to 5/5.
Now, one more request... Can you make this add-on compatible with Progre (so that the progress bar shows in the background of the title when loading) and Better URL Bar (so the size of the title font matches the bigger URL font)?
Hello Tim,Thanks for your comment.
1) I never noticed this ugly bug. I will see from where it comes, and how to fix it, as soon as I have some time.
2) Whichever you are speaking about the monospace font for the url or the color (blue) when you edit it, it is no more than a couple of CSS rules. I can change it easily, and I think it would not be too dificult for me to create an option for that. :)
8th march 2013: The new version is available. It fixes the bug and lets the user choose what he prefers about the aspect of the URL.
