Yet Another Smooth Scrolling

It works in FF 21- mostly... Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I used this for a while, then switched to SmoothWheel. Well, now I'm back to using this because SmoothWheel is completely broken in Firefox 21.
I had Yet Another Smooth Scrolling installed, but disabled, and forgot I had it. When I re-enabled it it didn't work right. I found I had to completely remove it, then re-install it for it to work.
So it works now, which is more than I can say for SmoothWheel.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.1.3.1-signed). 

SmoothWheel

Broken in Firefox 21 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is a great addon, hence the 4 star rating.
However, it is completely broken in Firefox 21. I wound up uninstalling it.
On some pages it won't scroll at all, on other pages you have to position the curor at the extreme right of the screen directly over the scrollbars to scroll. It's now become a PITA to use and has lost much of it's functionality.
Why do we have to go through this kind of thing *every* time Mozilla upgrades FF?

Gmail Manager

Found a modded version... Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I googled this problem, and found a solution in the Mozillazine forums, posted today:
http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=48&t=332634&start=4320
Down near the bottom of the page look at the post by "iHastr". It gives a link to a modded version of the extension.
I can confirm that it works in FF 6xxx in Ubuntu, and in FF 3xxx in Windows XP.

Gmail Manager

Fix does not work in XP Rated 1 out of 5 stars

...at least for me.
I tried it on my husbands XP system, it did not work at all. In fact, it screwed things up so badly I wound up uninstalling the extension.
I have no idea how to even go about trying it on my Linux machines.
Back to square one...

Gmail Manager

Stopped working for me too... Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I've used this for ages on multiple machines and OS's.
Today- forget it. I have 2 accounts set up, and I can't log in to either. It keeps rejecting the password.
It is not working on Firefox 3 under Windows XP, or on Firefox 6 under Ubuntu 10.04.
One of the posters suggested a fix, problem is- I mostly use Linux, so I don't think that fix will work for me.
This was great while it worked, I guess it's bye bye to this one as well.

Forecastfox Weather

garbage Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Since ForecastBar just quit on me- I tried installing this.
You've got to be kidding. This is awful. It doesn't work at all.
The "options" are now web based, so you've got to enable all kinds of scripting in NoScript to be able to set any options. I did that. It still didn't work, and the only place I could enter for my "local" weather was New York, which is nearly 90 miles away. Even at that, it didn't load any weather, the icon just sat there spinning in the taskbar.
This add-on is completely unusable.

Forecastbar Enhanced

WTF? It just quit on me... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I rated this 5 stars because I've been using it for years on all my computers, and it worked great. Until today, that is. It just quit on me. I have no radar, and my local conditions just read "0 F" on my taskbar.
It is the same on 2 different computers, one running XP, the other running Ubuntu Linux- so the issue is *not* on my end. I hope I don't have to go back to using ForecastFox. Been there, done that, didn't like it. Very poor add-on compared to ForecastBar.
If anybody has a fix for this please post it, otherwise I will be saying goodbye to the only weather add-on I ever really liked.

StockFox

worked until Sept. 8th... Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Like the previous poster, this worked until Sept. 8th. I use it on 4 computers- 2 Ubuntu and 2 XP systems, and it stopped working on all 4 machines simultaneously- so it's not a problem on my end. Now it's just sits there in the taskbar and says "ERROR: 200", and that's it. It's borked. I've used this add-on for years, and I absolutely love it, PLEASE fix it!

Toolbar Buttons

How did I live without it? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I recently added this on my laptop Firefox, so I could do simple things like move to the top/bottom of a page, enlarge text, or create a new tab without using the keyboard. It worked so well that I just added it to my 2 desktop machines as well. Great add-on! This is a keeper!

OpenSearchFox

How Did I Ever Live... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

without it!!!!????

I stumbled across mention of this one by accident.

I installed it, and have been able to add some of my favorite sites to look stuff up- like Snopes.com.

It's as easy as the author says- two clicks. What a convienence!

Awesome plug-in, thank you so much!

The best browser made even better by fantastic plug-ins- gotta love open source! LOL

Image Zoom

This is Great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I can't thank the author enough for this.

It's stable and I have no issues with it on FF 1.5.0.11 and FF 2.0.

If your eyes aren't what they used to be, you need to get this.

It makes browsing *so* much better. I use it every time I browse.

Thank you Jason!
