It's simple and does what it's supposed to do: It adds a "Search Wikipedia" command to FF's context menu that opens a new tab with the Wikipedia article (if it exists) for the highlighted text.
I just wish it showed the results in a foreground tab, or at least had that as an option. Presumably, if you want to look something up, you also want to see it. :?|
I posted an earlier review saying this extension didn't work. I don't know if it's been updated, or if I was just doing something wrong, but it works fine now.
This is a real time-saver for people who often make minor Wikipedia edits. Once you've selected some text in a Wikipedia article, the default command to activate the extension is Ctrl+E. (For some reason, the developer refers to it as "accel-e" in the extension's options... Maybe that's what it's called on a Mac?)
(Wow, I've never posted a review on a Czech webpage...)
Thanks very much for this update. It was quite annoying having to use FF's awkward Downloads window again, when the original Download Statusbar (and D.S. "Fixed") failed to work with FF 26.
Vážíme si vaší dobré práci!
HDI 2.0.1 works fine with Firefox 24, which I've just installed. If you add the Nightly Tester Tools extension, it lets you enable themes that haven't been officially tested for each new FF version. Despite all the incompatibility warnings that have appeared, I haven't had ANY problems HDI. I think the FF team just prefers to stay on the cautious side. ;?)
Thanks again for this beautiful theme!
I use this extension with the Nightly Tester Tools extension, which prevents FF from automatically disabling add-ons that haven't yet been officially "approved" for each new FF version. With rare exceptions, most add-ons work just fine from one FF version to another. Consequently, I use this extension not to report problems, but to report that add-ons that'd otherwise be disabled are OK.Of course, you can't test add-ons if you can't enable them---and I don't think everyone knows about the NTT extension. So how about adding a similar feature to ACR, to let people to override FF's automatic disabling? Then you could change the button it adds from "Report Issue" to "Report OK/Not OK", or something like that. Then it wouldn't be so odd, clicking "Report Issue" to report there are no issues. :?)
P.S., to the last reviewer: ACR does check themes's compatibility, at least on my system (FF v24.0). I just submitted "OK" reports for two of them.
I don't understand. I installed this in FF 22, but it doesn't appear anywhere---not on the tools menu, in the context menus, or anywhere else I can find. And neither its page here nor its website gives any clues on how to access it once it's installed... Is it some kind of joke?
This is a great idea and a well-written plugin. I was disappointed, though, to find that it didn't seem to work with pop-up images within pages (for example, the table photos at pinsimdb.org).
To developer (below): Thanks for your reply. I've changed my rating from 4 to 5 stars, as obviously you can't anticipate every coding instance. Keep up the great work.
Wow! My son and I always have a bunch of YouTube videos open in various tabs, and seldom have time to watch any of them completely. Whenever we had to close FF, we'd have to record our viewing positions in a textfile so we could return to them later.
ResumeLater makes all that unnecessary. Thanks very much for this nice add-on!
This would be even more useful if it also let you set the color of the Find box's text and background.
For some inexplicable reason, some themes change these colors so that when the typed text isn't found, the box either turns an annoyingly bright "warning" color (e.g. red), or the text disappears entirely (becomes nearly the same as the background color). Wouldn't it be great if this take-charge add-on coud fix that?
Excellent... Very elegant and professional-looking. Way to go!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.4).
An excellent add-on! FF loads noticeably faster here on my Win 7 netbook.
I don't know what problem the one-star reviewer had... Did he remember to do the 2nd part of the installation, as described above? It's worth the effort.
It's been SO annoying since Google started scrambling their result links. I mean, they're giving you a link to a page—what's the difference if you copy it there, or on the page itself? Really.
Anyway, thanks very much for fixing this nuisance!
This actually shows the Wiktionary/Wikipedia results, reformatted, in a pop-up window. I wish it had the option to open the actual Wiktionary/Wikipedia webpage in a new tab.
(Also, why not call it "QuikiWiki"? Wouldn't that be cuter?)
And it doesn't work with FF 14, either, which isn't surprising.
This looked good, but when I installed it I couldn't find anything new---no button on the Add-On Bar, no extra context-menu commands... And this page has no link to a website for the add-on, or contact info for the author. So I must be baffled and uninstall it. Oh well.
An excellent and practical dark theme, with very cute artistic touches.I especially like how it sets the content area of new tabs to black. I've always found it rather jarring when you're using a dark theme, open a new tab, and are suddenly blasted with a white screen.
My only possible complaint is the large, bright icon it adds in the center of FF's Downloads window, which makes it hard to see some of the (also light color) figures on the current downloads. Maybe this can be improved...?
UPDATE: HDI works just fine with FF 22.0. I've installed the Nightly Tester Tools add-on (available here) which adds a "Force Addon Compatibility" command that lets you re-enable HDI—and I've no problems with it at all. So if you can't live without HDI till Aatif has a chance to update it, there's the solution!In many cases, declaring an existing theme or extension "compatible" with a new FF version is just a formality. The FF team has high standards, though, and they like to be sure there are no significant problems. If you use NTT to enable anything else that hasn't been certified for a new FF version, just keep your eyes open and be careful—you're being a "tester"!
But it's not "black" at all. The toolbar backgrounds—the most conspicuous parts of the UI besides the content area—are bright silver.
Anyway, it's a nice job for a LIGHT theme. But I sure would like to find a truly dark (but not totally black!) theme where everything is still visible... I don't know if people realize this, but when you're using a portable PC whose battery charges don't last particularly long, you can save a good dea of energy by using a darker theme.
Fun and practical! Nice work!
I'll have some of whatever RobotChicken (below) is having—though I'm usually more pleasant than that when I'm intoxicated. :?)
An excellent and practical dark theme!
There's just one thing I don't care for—and it's just a quirk, not really a problem: It hides the scrollbar slider until you hover right over it. This means you must actually take a moment to "hunt" for the slider before you can see it.
I like the idea of hiding the slider when not scrolling—but I think it'd be better to show it again when the user points anywhere on the scrollbar.
This is a very cute theme. The only thing I don't care for is how it changes the address bar colors to light green on light gray—very hard to read.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.15).
