Some users complain Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I've also complained, starting last evening, but only due to now trying to do much the same work I've been doing in WinXP, this time in Linux. In WinXP, TMT has been certainly useful for me.
Very little, if any, documentation is needed for using this Firefox extension. I've never made use of any, or if I initially did, then it was extremely little. TMT is rather straightforward to use. It isn't difficult at all; not in MS Windows anyway.
TMT, which I've been using for some years now, over two anyway, has never caused any menus to flicker for me. Maybe this flickering problem that NelsonBig has experienced isn't due to TMT, but something else, instead; or maybe a conflict between Firefox extensions he or she has installed. I've never had any flickering due to any Firefox extensions at all.
If TMT is useless for your particular needs, then that's not a reason, in itself, to give the extension a low rating. Reviews should always be critically objective, rather than subjective. We can give our subjective views, but shouldn't do that without also being critically objective. F.e., I don't like some movies or books that are rated highly and which are actually well made or written, but to be able to rate it, I have to abstract myself, say, so I'ld just state my dislike, while also adding that the quality of the work is good, great, or whatever I critically think of it in objective terms.
You could say that you hate your "disgusting" neighbour because he grows marijuana. Which of the two of you would be right in critically objective terms? Your neighbour, of course!
These are my comments on the three negative or unfavourable posts in the first page of reviews, presently.
These people who complained didn't provide critically objective reports and ratings. TMT is useful.
TMT problems with Firefox in Linux persist Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Thanks for the report. For create TMT rows, you may right click a tab and "Send this tab to TMT" and choose "Send to new row". Hope it helps."
The tip you give is good to learn. It wasn't necessary and doesn't resolve the problems I described, but is nevertheless good to know about. It'll be useful.
However, it doesn't cause rows or names of rows to appear in the TMT Options popup (the Row or Rows tab), and doesn't correct the other problems I mentioned. F.e., I can neither save TMT rows to file, nor import from a saved file. And the other problems remain also unresolved, for me anyway.
If we can't save and import saved TMT rows (using external files), and can't see the rows in the Rows tab of TMT Options, plus the bug reporting button also has no effect, then there're several deficiencies with this Firefox extension for Linux; Fedora and Kororaa anyway.
I can still create rows, but the aforementioned deficiencies are very considerable for this extension. It merits a 4-star rating for MS Windows, but if these deficiencies in Linux persist, then the rating will need to be very low for use or usage of this add-on in Linux. (That's something that might not particularly matter to you, but Linux users might care about this and it's better to not provide a very defective add-on than it is to provide them when ratings here are high for this extension and maybe only because of MS Windows users; maybe.)
If the extension fully works correctly in other Linux distros, like Debian-based ones, f.e., then the question that remains is "why not with Fedora-based distros?". I don't think there should be a real difference between the different Linux distros, but maybe there is also for TMT.
addons.mozilla.org says this extension is suitable for Firefox in Linux, but your extension info. (obtained by clicking on the Info. link in the download or install page) doesn't specify any OS'es and versions thereof, at all. So, what are your intentions for use with Ffx in Linux? Maybe you didn't really intend this extension to be used with Ffx in Linux, but Mozilla's verification (if there is any) determined that this would be fully usable in this manner without you being informed of this. (I don't know what the extensions verification process involves.)
Anyway, the problems I first posted about, all of them, persist.
TMT problems in Linux Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I'm actually using Kororaa 16 (K16), which is based on Fedora 16 (FC16), and added the TooManyTabs extension to Firefox, but there're a number of problems with TMT. This is with Firefox (Ffx) 10.0.1, which TMT supports, or which supports TMT (whichever), including in or with Linux.
1) Creating TMT rows :
I can create TMT subfolders or rows (being called rows in TMT but are subfolders in the Firefox bookmarks manager), but this has to be done by opening the bookmarks manager, going to the TMT subfolder that's in the main unclassified bookmarks folder, and then creating the TMT subfolders myself using the right-click menu. When doing it in Windows XP I can just click on the TMT down-arrow and subfolder list (the TMT menu, I guess it's called) on the left-hand-side of the Ffx browser, open the TMT Options, go to the Rows tab and add (delete or modify the names of) subfolders/rows. To place newly created rows where I want them, then I have to go through the Firefox bookmarks manager whether thiss done in XP or K16, but can perform the other operations using the TMT Options popup in XP.
2) Rows don't show up in TMT Options :
Going to the Rows tab in the TMT options popup window (or whatever it's called) shows all of the names of the rows in WinXP, but shows absolutely nothing in K16, so surely also shows nothing in FC16. In KC16 I can see and select the rows using the TMT menu in the Firefox browser, but see nothing for rows in the TMT Options popup tool.
3) Saving TMT rows to file :
I'm unable to save TMT rows to file using the Advanced tab of the TMT Options popup ... in K16, while this works in XP.
4) Clicking on the bug reporting button fails in TMT Options :
In the Advanced tab of TMT Options, where we can save and load TMT rows to and from a file, there's a third button for using to report bugs and this button is supposed to copy the profile data or information to the clipboard, but the clipboard in K16 is Klipper and nothing from gets written to it by clicking on this TMT Options button.
I selected 4 of 5 stars due to only beginning to use TMT with Ffx in Linux, as of very recently; while having used TMT for some years with Ffx in WinXP.
Thanks for the report. For create TMT rows, you may right click a tab and "Send this tab to TMT" and choose "Send to new row". Hope it helps.
