Gmail Manager

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Fairly good gmail manager. However, how and where you display the button is awkwardly implemented and the icon does not display consistently in the FF add-ons bar. It would be nice if this preference was streamlined into the "Customise..." menu like other add-on buttons.

Fast Dial

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Clever add-on, but poor development... I find many updates change the layout willy nilly without much thought. Version 2.23b1 has changed the way the search bar is handled. Instead of just "hiding" the search bar when not wanted, 2.23b1 changes the spacing of the entire Fast Dial page by pushing the thumbnails to the top of when "0" search bars are selected in the prefs. I will revert to 2.22 until this is fixed.

Stay away from beta releases.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.23b1).

Great theme... but update 0.3.0 does not render my HOME button properly?! Everything else is great though. Well designed.

hmmm... for some reason my FD just broke. I lost all of the saved URLs and thumbnails. And for some reason I can't restore the original settings. tried to reinstall FD and Firefox but that doesn't help. Any ideas?

Hey,

Great theme... are you planning a FF 3.1b3 compatible version?

Now that I have used this theme for a while, I can easily say that it is the best OSX/Safari theme for Firefox in my opinion. It is also very stable for an experimental version... I have had no problems. I love that the CLOSE TAB X is located on the right side of the tab, which makes a lot of sense for right handed users. In fact, the only change I would make is to change the placement arrow when moving a tab from grey to a more easily identifiable colour like blue or green etc... otherwise a GREAT job with this theme.

SUPER!

The only minour change I would make is that the tabs could be slightly taller... right now I find them to be a bit thin. But that is just personal taste.

VERY WELL DESIGNED!

2.22 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

In my previous review (see below) like many others, I expressed my disappointment with FD 2.15 and 2.16. Thx to the developer, many of these issues seem to be corrected and much of the functionality lost after 2.11 has been restored in 2.22.

However, When updating to 2.22, many of my custom pref setting were lost and needed to be reset. Also, be aware that you may lose all of your custom logos when installing the update. Luckily, after problems with 2.15 & 2.16, I found and saved ALL of my custom logos to a folder on my HD. When updating to 2.22 all I had to do was reassign the logo to each FD thumbnail which took about 5 min. I pity the poor user who has to go online and track down all of their custom logos.

Also, some of the preference dialogue boxes do not render correctly, cutting off some of the pref options in the lower potion of the pref box.

So, not perfect yet, but far less frustrating than 2.15 or 2.16

----------------

2.11 was a good little ad on... BUT, 2.15 & 2.16 have a lot of issues outlined by others on this page. Other than installing garbage I never asked for or wanted (and was not informed that it would get added during the installation process by the way), the 2 most irritating things are:

1. Fast Dial lost all of my downloaded and custom images.
2. Many of the PREFERENCE dialogue boxes do not render properly... I can see the tops of several check box prefs etc but the PREFERENCE dialogue box does not extend down far enough so that I can read what functions I am turning ON or OFF.

I have uninstalled this add-on for now until these guys get their act together.

PS: I gave this one * because you can't submit a review with no rating.
