open tab count widget

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I feel the same lack as SlugFiller feels. The extension need a per window separate count toghether with the total count.

Gmail Manager

Issue with Firefox 29 and addons bar. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

At first, thanks for this useful extension.

Same problem for me as below: the default "addons bar" destination for Gmail-Manager icon don't work with FF29 anymore.
If I use an extension that restores the addons bar, gmail manager icon loose its placement at restart (the icon is moved at the extreme right of the navigation bar after a restart).
Please fix it (it should not be so difficult, maybe changing the default placement for the icon will solve the problem).

@luvNY
Thanks for the tip. It is a good temporary solution, but if I've to prepare a firefox profile for an unesperienced person, it will be not able to use this trick after he creates his account.

SearchPreview

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very good addon, but with a flaw: the icon to quickly enalble/disable it has a very old technology. It was created for the old taskbar, and with the addons bar it results unmovable.
Now that with FF29 and Australis the Addons Bar has been removed, the icon is not avaible at all.
Please fix the icon problem, so that it is possible to add it to any firefox bar.
Thanks

Classic Theme Restorer (Customize Australis)

Luckily there is this addon... but it seems there is a annoying bug Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks for this addon, it sames me a lot of manual work.

I've a problem: with this addon the Address Bar of Firefox expands occupying the whole line, so that other icons in the bar become accessible only clicking on a button on the right end of the bar.
It seems U'm not the only one with this issue, so, if you could take a look at it...

Zoom Page

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It seems that the new version 9.0 has an annoying bug: it adds an unamovable large spage on the right side of my bookmarks bar. Please fix it!
Thanks!

FireGestures

1.8 and 1.8.1 - Using popup causes double action Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I use firegestures everyday, it is an indispensable extension for my browsing.
The last version (1.8) seems to have problems with the script I created that uses the popup menu: each action is performed two times. For example if I insert a text in a textfield, it is copied two times (NOTE: if I use the undo CTRL-Z function, the two text inserted are removed one by one), if I open a link, two tabs are opened instead than only one. Hope this issue will be fixed soon. Otherwise, how can I modify my scripts?
EDIT: issue still present with 1.8.1 update.
RE-EDIT: my issue is the same of id2test2 above, but the problem is not limited to loadOneTab only.
FINAL-EDIT: the version 1.8.2 seem to solve the problem. Thanks!

Is there an help forum? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Five star for this indispensable addon.

I'm writing to ask if is there a support forum where I can ask help for a script. I've weird difficulties with generatePopup api, maybe is there a bug?
Time ago the firegestures website allows to write comments and asking for help, but now that functionality seems has been removed.

FireGestures

Feature Request Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Simply my favorite gesture addon.
I've a feature request. It is possible to add a function such as:
FireGestures.playAlert(SOUND_TYPE)
that allows me to reproduce a sound (the function could provide some embedded "beeps") inside my user scripts!
Thanks!

Linkification

Good addon, but I miss e feature! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very useful addon for me, but for me it would be very useful if I could choose on which page formats enable it.
For example I could choose to enable it only for .txt files opened with firefox, but not for .html, .php, etc...pages.

Issue in Italian Locale Rated 5 out of 5 stars

@troypst
It is a problem of the Italian Locale. Delete all locales and references (in install.rdf, chrome.manifest and \chrome\locale\) leaving the en-US locale only.
This will give you access to the option panel (in english). With more investigations it should be possible to find the problem inside the italian locale files.
NOTE: the files are coded in UTF-8, so it is not a problem related to Italian accented characters.

EDIT: I found the problem. The Italian locale is referenced as "it-IT" in the chrome.manifest file, while the folder in \chrome\locale\ is simply named "it".
Rename the folder as it-IT and the option panel will work correctly.

Screenshoter

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very good ultra-light screenshot addon.
There are some thing I think should be improved:
- Add a smaller icon to use in the addons bar (the present icon enlarge the bar!)
- Add "save page as image" in the "Save page as..." menu.
- Allow to change key shortcuts: I can't use ctrl+shift+M because it conflicts with another function.

Zoom Page

Feature Requests and Bug Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Now, with the improvements of the version 3, this extension is almost perfect.
I've only a feature to request: double left click to "fast reset" zoom (that is... return to 100% zoom).

Another little feature request: improve graphics of the addons bar icon (especially, avoid the compact mode increase the height of the addons bar).

Perhaps a BUG:
When I use popup menu to choose the zoom factor, it is changed but not memorized, so the next time I open the page, the zoom factor is the previous choosen using + and - buttons.

lget

Need a bugfix with some locales Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very useful addon, but with recent versions of firefox, a bug regarding the option dialog appears.
The dialog opens, but the only content is an error report.
Here is the content, in Italian language:
Errore interpretazione XML: entità non definita
Indirizzo: chrome://lget/content/options.xul
Linea numero 35, colonna 1:
<dialog id="lget-options-dialog"
^

EDIT:
It seems the options.xul file can't find entities defined in locale file options.dtd. Could you fix the problem?

RE-EDIT:
The problem was due to the inability to read accented characters in the dtd file.

Problem solved converting the dtd file in UTF-8 encoding
All Italian users (and all users with accented characters in their localization) can easily fix the extension opening the xpi file with a zip manager (I used 7zip) and converting the file in UTF-8 with an advanced text editor (I used notepad2).

Add-on Update Checker

Feature request Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks for this extension that replace upadte notifier, that now seems discontinued.
Now that this extension has popups, the only feature I miss is a right click menu on the icon, with voices such as "install all updates" (without open addons page), "reboot firefox", install and reboot, "options".
So the icon could work this way:
- left click: check for updates
- right click: opens context menu
- double (left) click: opens addons manager (now performed by right click menu).
Five stars upon trust and for the good work!

Minimize Addon-Bar

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great extension, but with a Great deficiency: it don't show icons of the addons that has not been updated already to be used with the new addons-bar.
So my classic addons bar with seven icons has be transformed in the new fantastic minimizable tool bar with 2 icons only! Unfortunately, it is unseful with the loss of 5 addons.
PS: is it possible to reduce the minimum size of the bar at 18pt?

Gmail Notifier

Can't login anymore Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Don't works anymore for me. The update to version 0.6.4.3 don't solve the problem. Please fix it!

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Indispensable.
Is there a place where I can post feature requests?
I'd like:
- Two new renaming mask, that are 1) *pagetitle* and 2) *alt_attribute* (and title attribute), useful for downloaded images.
- A more customizable interface. I'd like to add/remove buttons in the toolbar, and organize my right click menu in download manager.
For example for me it's extremely uncomfortable that in order to clean the window I have to select all and then select cancel. Add/Remove segments is uncomfortable too...
I think personalization will help to make DTA more useful.
Thanks.
