My Reviews

Downloads Window

almost perfect, exactly what I didn't know I needed!, again. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

i now probably have approximately 10+ add-ons just to fix things that keep getting removed from Firefox… but I digress, maybe.

The "Open Directory" button.
Needs to have a toggle in the settings, i know it does not represent what the original window looks like but I think it would be an improvement.
I am thinking that if a download is selected when clicked it would bring me to the download without having to right-click.
and that if a download is not selected when clicked, it would open the download folder.
thereby reducing clicks needed.
it also needs an icon and not a title to save space, and sit nicely next to the clear button.

I don't quite know how it was implemented in previous versions, but if I remember correctly the icon next to a download changed from an "X" to a "pause" symbol when a file is being downloaded.
an improvement to that (albeit probably requiring a pref toggle) would be to have a cancel / restart button and a pause resume button.
that way during an active download i would be able to cancel or pause with one click.
and when finished, re-download / clear individual downloads.
it would mean having two sets of buttons, but right clicking to pause just doesn't work for me.


next on my to do list, find a replacement for the add-on bar and custom toolbars.
fix corrupt downloads.... ( I don't know if this has anything to do with your add-on, I have been having issues with downloads that continue, but the estimated time and total file size do not populate until 2/3 of the download finishes. and files finishing abruptly, even if the file size is not even close to what the total file size is supposed to be. producing corrupt files )

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.5.1-signed). 

List All Tabs Menu

Interesting caution Rated 4 out of 5 stars

sometimes I see an add-on and i think no way.
sometimes I see an add-on and I think interesting.
sometimes I see an add-on and I think that could be useful.
sometimes I see an add-on and I say to myself I will have to test that.
sometimes I see an add-on and I throw all caution to the wind and hit the install button in my primary Firefox profile.

guess what I did when I saw this!

considering I have 120 tabs open at the current moment.
the only thing that i immediately notice as possibly being annoying so far is...
if you click the drop-down and use the scroll wheel you will reload every single tab that you have opened in a split second! and completely kill your Internet connection if it's slow! or your download allowance! or your AT&T data plan!

i am using a MacBook Pro with the trackpad and it's very easy to do. although I do think that i will find that feature useful, I just wish it wasn't so ez to go through so quickly.

Remove New Tab Button

OMG it's not needed!!!!!!!!!? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

During one of the many updates a long while back Firefox move the new tab button to the tab bar. this was great however 1. it took up valuable space on my tab bar ( of 100+/- tabs ) and 2. it was annoying to have two tab buttons and be used to using one of them.

So unbeknownst to me something happened.
I went to set up another Firefox profile and I was going over the various add-ons that i needed to install from my main profile. ( one or 2 profiles was not enough, I have 4 instances of Firefox that I can open and 6 profiles. ) and I installed this add-on and I couldn't figure out why I wasn't getting the new tab button to go away. i disabled, I restarted, I uninstalled and reinstalled, I thought it was my horrible Internet connection with Hughes-net. ( i actually had downloads. download and say they were done and they were not, as they would not open. it was only a 20MB VLC download. )

so apparently during one of the last few updates you can now edit your toolbars and drag the button off. ( was that so hard Mozilla. )

So all that leaves me to say is, thank you to "sdwilsh" for this add-on.
I was so glad when I found it way back when. thank you.
