My Reviews

Tree Style Tab

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I use the All tabs list instead of the right sidepanel, for which this addon is great because it adds tree style to the atl.
However, I'd like to be able to disable other features so that it can be used at the same time with Tab Kit, making it possible to have colored tabs.
So the option to toggle off those features that bring TabKit incompatibilities would be great.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.2009073102). 

List All Tabs Menu

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love your extension! Not only makes it possible to close tabs from the all tabs list but also comes with that amazingly useful search box. Thanks, thanks, thanks :)
Cant believe FF is switching away from the ATL while they should just improve it, like your addon does.
After having used LAT for few weeks the improvements I can think of are:

- An option to chose the height of the panel. On a 22.5 cm high screen the lower tabs of the panel will be hidden under the taskbar.

- Move the panel 2 mm to the right so that when careless moving the cursor to the right edge of the screen, it will be placed just on the scrolling bar of the menu, and thus allowing users to scroll the panel in a very fast way.
(Having to place the cursor on a 0.5 cm string involve much more effort than to just move the cursor all the way to the right edge)

- While it would be very nice to have unread tabs highlighted like Tab Kit does, this seems to be a feature request for Tree Style rather than for LAT.

Hide Caption

Thunderbird Compatibility PLEASE! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Finally I found the best way for hiding Firefox title bar, THANKS!
I am looking like crazy for the same thing on Thunderbird. Please, add THUNDERBIRD compatibility.

Tab Kit

How to make it better Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I consider this addon as one of the most useful addons for Firefox (if not the most). I am just writing here some ideas which I think could make it even more powerful.

1- Tab coloring causes some incompatibility with certain themes (e.g Chromifox, as someone is complaining). Thus the ability to toggle tab coloring on/off is needed for bypassing this problem. (the option to do not overwrite themes is just not enough)

2- More ways to highlight current and unread tabs would be desirable, as the black and yellow labels somehow make it more difficult to perceive the background tab color. Underlined, bold and italic text could do the job for unread tabs. However, in the “List all tabs” menu, labels are certainly more effective than underlining text as the line spacing is so tiny.

3- The “List all tabs” button is an almost unused great feature in Firefox.
It would be perfect if this addon enables to toggle that button by means of a shortcut (such as Alt+Z, behaving in the bookmarks menu does, which scrolls down by “Alt+B” and disappears with “Alt”), then show the tabs in “Tree mode” (the way Tab Kit shows when enabled the “show tab bar along the side edge”, yet being a cascade menu), and finally enabling to select multiple tabs (Ctrl+LClick) in order to bookmark/close them (MClick/RClick).

Favicon Picker 3

Domain Rules Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This add-on is useful for choosing an icon for those bookmarks that don’t have one.
It does let you globally prevent Firefox or websites from changing your bookmark icons for all websites, but it doesn’t let you individually toggle this option for every bookmark icon of your choice. Global rules mess up with the normal behavior of favicons, normally resulting in websites not showing any favicon (as far as I have tried it, it’s been that way) If able to add customizable rules, it would be possible to block a certain domain (e.g google.com, specially this one) from changing its icon from your bookmarks and/or the icon showed in the tab bar/ address bar (more importantly in the tab bar as those icons can help you distinguish a website when many tabs are opened). Then if the website address doesn’t correspond to any rule, it would show the website’s default favicon.
In the simplest way, this could be done creating a block list of domains (such as those in other add-ons as NoScript, AdBlock, etc…)

Thanks for the already good add-on
