Additional Folder Views

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I don't use the Unread Folders that apparently has a bug ... the Favorite Folders view is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks!

Stylish

Great utility add-on, makes site-based CSS editing trivial. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Tip: Stylish can edit your Chrome settings, too! With no @-moz... pieces, try something like this: menu[label="Help"] { display:none; } The advantage here is that you can edit your Chrome without restarting FF.

Gripe 1: Greasemonkey allows 3rd-party editors, but Stylish is stuck using a basic XUL text entry box. ... This is mostly solved by the "It's All Text!" add-on.

Gripe 2: Great integration with the userstyles.org site, but the site isn't as featureful as userscripts.org, and while you can submit and import, there is no auto-update mechanism. How do I know when something is updated? I'd propose: upon loading an imported style, if Stylish hasn't checked for updates on that style in the past week, check for updates and prompt the user if there is one. An option should be available to stop the prompts (and not install), auto-install instead of prompt, or never check. Another option should allow checking all of them when prompted, or on a schedule. One must also be able to disable updates on a per-style basis.

These gripes are minor. Stylish is a great boon to the web.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.7). 

CookieSafe

GREAT add-on! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Power and simplicity! Easily one of my top five extensions (I have 26 in use currently).

Not at all invasive (no more need for an endless barrage of pop-ups asking if setting cookies are okay!), this add-on gives an extremely good sense of control. It can be set to auto-block all cookies until you permit them with the status bar icon, including with a "Temporarily allow Cookies" option. Just click the icon and select what you want.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0.3). 

CS Lite

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Good add-on. I didn't see any performance difference between this and its big brother, CookieSafe. When I downgraded to CS Lite, I found it was unable to deal with subdomains. This forced me to move back to CookieSafe.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.9). 

Popbook

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I used this a lot in FF2, along with a userChrome line that removed the Bookmarks menu item.

For FF3, you can generate a plugin with this and other icons at http://codefisher.org/toolbar_button/toolbar_button_maker ... doesn't support right-click yet though.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.0.5). 

Stop-or-Reload Button

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'd like to see it as an extra button rather than a hack on top of stop and reload. However, the current implementation may play more nicely with skins/themes and other add-ons.
