I love this add-on! I am a Twitter-holic so it makes it easy to get my fix. BUT, for some reason, I install it and everything is fine, but the next time I close and reopen my browser, the new tab is gone!
Search still works though, which is almost as useful.
Brilliant idea, just needs a few tweeks.
Best twitter app ever, doesn't need to restart!!!!
I used this add too, but he icon disappeared as I restarted Firefox and never came back since. I did try to reinstall, but it doesn't work! I have Firefox 5 right now, maybe that's the problem? I just don't know!
Overall I enjoyed using this add-on, keep up the good work!
Basically just creates an pinned tab and adds two special functions to the address bar for entries beginning with '@' or '#'. You can create a pinned tab yourself without this addon but some people don't know that.
My only feature request for this add-on would be fullscreen support. When the navigation toolbar is hidden as it is in fullscreen mode, although it can also be hidden in the view menu, the @ and the # do not use Twitter Address Bar Search for the lookup.
Update 2012-06-09 Now fully works in fullscreen (to the fullest)
A small icon in the corner that glows is very practical and fun. I spend a lot of time surfing, and I only use Firefox for Twitter. This way I can instantly see if anything is happening, without having a lot of big tabs open.
BUT, the search plugin which I don't use, because I don't really see the need of searching on twitter all the time, irritates me mad. It moves around in the list. I have a long list of search engines added, also an add-on to add searches (mark a word, right click, search with correct search). Twitter insists on staying as number two, no matter how many times I move or BETTER - delete it. Which makes me search twitter my accident because it's not suppose to be there!! Let me move it around please!! Everytime I restart firefox it's back as number two.
Molt útil, gràcies!
Please use the mobile version of the Twitter website in this extension; after all, it is a mobile device I am using it on. I don't want to see the desktop sized pages.
This is a very different experience on Firefox mobile. Desktop version is exactly what you would want and expect: 5 stars!
On my droid, however, it does not direct me twitter mobile. I would give it 5 stars for mobile as well except for this problem... and it actually makes it completely useless since Firefox mobile can't even log-in to regular twitter: 3 stars (1 for execution, but 5 still for concept... averaging 3).
It's a wonderful addition .. Thanks
Great addon for twitter fans. Fast result. Thanks.
Simply awesome, just like Twitter. :)
