Very cool Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great concept.
It works as mentioned.

Thanks for developing it.

Print Edit

Perfect Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I was looking for an add-on with the type of functionality that this offers for someone else, but now that I've tried it, I'm keeping it.

It has a lot more features than I expected to find or thought was possible and it works very well.
It's a fine add-on and I thank you sincerely for developing and maintaining it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (10.2). 

Classic Theme Restorer (Customize Australis)

Brilliant Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've been waiting a while to see how this would turn out and I've only given it a quick run but so far, I'm impressed.
Great work.
You should add the (non-obtrusive) contribute option here on AMO. You still have a lot of work ahead to do (you've already done a ton), until Australis is finalized considering whatever fixes and changes will come along, plus maintaining this afterwards and you deserve some compensation for your time, work, and efforts.

It might take a while, but this add-on is going to be massively popular.

FindBar Tweak

A New Favorite Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Fantastic work with this add-on.
It has plenty of options to meet the needs of most users.

Thanks sincerely for developing it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4.12). 

Restart FF Button

Helpful Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Nice simple, add-on that's very useful. Especially when doing development work.

Thanks for developing it.

Show - Hide Bookmarks ToolBar

Handy Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Nice and useful add-on with some great options.

Thanks for developing it.

TabFlip

Nice Concept Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A fun way to cycle through and switch tabs with less distance for the mouse to travel. What a great idea.

I thank you for developing this, and so does my mouse.
His legs get tired from running all around the screen.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.0). 

Stylish

The Best of All Time Rated 5 out of 5 stars

If you're considering using Stylish, do yourself a favor and just hit Add to Firefox right now.
I've used it for many years, it's my most used add-on, and my favorite.

Stylish was essential when I was learning CSS and it still is for learning new additions. It would have been more difficult and time consuming to understand and experiment with CSS if Stylish hadn't been around.
It has been a big help with developing some of the add-ons that I've made.
It has allowed to remove annoyances and distractions from websites.
It has allowed me to customize Firefox the way that I like and that best suits my needs. I have poor eyesight and being able to change colors, images, icons and sizes, fonts and anything else has made using Firefox itself more enjoyable and usable (Mozilla Thunderbird too).
I've used, and continue to use Stylish while working on my websites, and customizing WordPress themes.
Stylish may even be able to cook me breakfast, I just haven't tried it yet.

Firefox developer tools has nothing that compares or that is more comfortable and easy to use as Stylish and I'll be sticking with it.

I'm surprised and a little embarrassed that I've never left a review. Perhaps I did years ago, but I'm ok with writing a new one because you Jason, deserve praise and kudos for Stylish itself, for maintaining it for all of these years, and for putting up with that crap that you went through when developers were being called out about memory usage.

Thanks sincerely.
You rock!

Facebook Photo Zoom

Very Cool and Useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a very handy add-on that of course automatically zoom images on Facebook pages when you hover over them, but it enhances the Fb experience by allowing you to continue to view Fb alerts, chats, etc, without anything being blocked out by the photo lightbox that usually takes over your screen when you click on a photo.

About this review below mine.
"ADDS TOOLBAR BUTTON W/O Asking.....Run away Rated 1 out of 5 stars"

Although I haven't seen a button just yet, add-on developers are advised to add coding that automatically adds a toolbar button to the navigation bar when an add-on includes a toolbar button so that users don't have to go digging around for them and so that they can take advantage of an add-on's full functionality. If they do not include this coding, they will be advised to add it when their add-on is reviewed to be included on this site. I know this because I've experienced it. Thanks sincerely for developing this free add-on.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6). 

Dark Side Of The Prism

Relax, this is for fun Rated 5 out of 5 stars

If you are thinking about using this add-on, keep these things in mind.
1) It's for fun, and not some sort of magical NSA/Prism blocking add-on.
2) Purchase Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon album if you want to pause, mute, etc, the songs.
3) Here's a list of the companies, http://www.pcworld.com/article/2040991/report-nsa-prism-program-spied-on-americans-emails-searches.html
4) Firefox button > Add-ons > Extensions > Dark Side Of The Prism > Disable, disables this add-on or you can choose Remove.

This is a brilliant and funny add-on!Thanks for developing it.

Firefox Button Classic Menu

Well done! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great idea. I like it. It's quicker and easier to get to exactly what I want.

Thanks for developing it.

No Small Text

Simple and helpful Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Nice work with this.

Thanks for developing it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0). 

Extension Options Menu

Very handy to have Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have 60+ add-ons enabled at any given time so scrolling through the Add-ons Manger, locating an add-on, opening its options, and then having to go back and repeat the process is a bit too time consuming for me, so I really appreciate having much quicker access to my add-on's options.

I also like the added features such as enabling/disabling add-ons via a click, the restart option, the toolbar button menu, as well as the others.

I know that this add-on has been available for a long time, I'm just sorry that I didn't install it a few years back.

Thanks for developing, and maintaining it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.7). 

Download Cleaner

Thank you Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works as expected.

Download and browsing history should be two separate items by default, especially since I've set Firefox to clear downloads.

Thanks sincerely for developing this.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.1). 

Standalone

Sweet Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I was bummed when Prism died out because I used it quite a bit and I understand that this is different, but it functions similarly. I love it.

I tried it with several sites in Windows 7 (with 19.0.2 and Nightly) and it works fine.

I've always wondered though, when these links open, are my preferences and settings that are set in my default browser used/applied (permissions, cookies, etc)?

Thanks for developing this.

about:addons-memory

Great Idea Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Like someone else mentioned, this should be a default feature.

Thanks for developing it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4). 

Selected text reader

Great Start Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I really like this extension and see great potential for it to become an excellent add-on.
If the amount of displayed words could be increased, and there was a pause option available, I would definitely feature this as a helpful accessibility aid.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1). 

CenterSVG

Great idea Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I view a lot of SVG's so I can appreciate this.

Thanks for developing it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (initial.rev56). 

img2tab

Thank you! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is an excellent add-on.
I had no idea that it had been around for a few years and I'm sorry that I hadn't discovered it sooner.

It can actually save time, clicks, and page loading by users not having to click to view one full sized image at a time per page.
It also works with Lightbox type scripts installed.

Thanks for developing it.

Inspect Context

Extremely Helpful Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on has been an essential tool for me for Firefox add-on development, web development in general, and for my own personal Firefox customizations and tweaking.
Inspecting context and other types of menus used to mean looking at the page source, style sheets, etc, but now I have one click, quick access.

Thanks for developing it.
Your time and efforts are greatly appreciated.
