Zoom Page

Keep it Simple Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Response from user to:
Just to clarify ...
by DW-dev (Developer) on June 12, 2016:

No. the developer has made this add-on overly-complicated as numerous users have already reported and continue to report. The developer thinks in his own world and does not understand real-world usage nor real-world users and would rather defend the complex unfriendly, non-intuitive design, than improve it. It is his add-on and he can do as he wishes, and so can Firefox users.

I have removed Zoom Page in favour of the significantly more intuitive and much simpler NoSquint Plus add-on. And now I am happier and more productive.

Thanks anyway.

Gmail Manager-community

Still working with FF 44.0.2, but.. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I clicked on the 'support section' and it took me here, so here I am.

Only issue I have is the button is stuck in the lower right 'legacy addonbar' and I can't move it out. When I enter Customize, I the button shaded, but can't move it elsewhere. My understanding is the add-on doesn't use the "new" toolbar and button APIs (https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2013/12/12/australis-for-add-on-developers-1/). Otherwise it is a invaluable for anyone with multiple gmail accounts.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7). 

Gmail Manager NG

Working so far on FF 43.0 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Working so far on FF 43.0 :)

Compact Menu 2

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is now 2.5+ years old but still works on FF 28.

The Title bar is replaced with orange 'Firefox' button (no mention of this in the description).

I use the Title bar to ascertain the webpage I am on, so I removed the add-on. Thanks anyway!

FindBar Tweak

Options are not sticking? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

1. Add my name to your ever-expanding list of thank you's!

2. On FF 25/Win7, for some reason I cannot change any of FindBar Tweak's options. I've tried via Options/Addon/FindBar Tweak and also by rt.clicking the Find bar, and even tried restarting FF. The options always stay as default installed.

Thanks!

Print Edit

Not working with FF 25.0.1 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Default English only.

Edit: 16 Nov13.

Still not working with FF 25.0.1 XP.Maybe a conflict with other addon, Maybe not.

Print Edit

"Text Pieces" or "Web style" aren't enabled on FF 25 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I tried again. "Text Pieces" or "Web style" are NOT selectable on the Print Edit Menubar. I went into options/features and verified that both are enabled, restarted FF. In FF 25.0, these two options along with all other Menubar options remain shaded/unavailable, and I am not able to use Print Edit in any way with FF on Windows 7. Thank you!

PE 10.2 is not working in Firefox 25.0 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you for the excellent and highly useful addon.

I just installed Firefox 25.0. [Awesome] Print Edit 10.2 stopped working. It opens, I see all Edit options on top of Edit page shaded (but I can't use any of them). I went back and forth between Edit/Preview but am unable to see any of the red area boxes nor access any options on the PE toolbar. I reinstalled Firefox 24.0 (from FileHippo.com) and Print Edit is working again!

Windows XP

GMail Checker

Gmail Checker 2.6.2 no working as of 29 Oct 13 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Gmail Checker 2.6.2 stopped working for me today 29 Oct 2013 while on FF 24 BEFORE upgrading to FF 25.

I suspect Google changed something as the default Gmail.com page looks different. It may not have anything to do with FF 25.

I wonder if the other gmail-checker are not working either?

SearchMenu - Search Faster in Firefox

Works with Firefox 14.0.1 - Use this workaround for Stylish Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Working with Firefox 14.0.1.

If you have issues with Stylish (I did), try replacing Stylish with add-on: User Style Manager, it is compatible with SearchMenu 2.2.3 and works well!

FF 14.0.1 - Working fine! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Only tried once with Youtube, FF 14.0.1 - worked perfectly!

Windows XP (will never die!)

Classic Toolbar Buttons

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

For accessability reasons, I use macros that press Custom buttons on the Navigation bar based on Relative Window position.

Firefox 1.4.0.1's inconsiderate size changes to this toolbar threw-off the relative window positions and caused my macros to press the wrong button.

Thanks to Classic (Small) Toolbar Buttons 1.1.2 I have my larger buttons back.

Only suggestion I can make is in the name. I don't use the Small Toolbar buttons, but the default (larger) one.

Lets hope Firefox Devs. doesn't find a way to break this necessary add-on!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.2.1-signed). 

SearchMenu - Search Faster in Firefox

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks jg, while we wait and wait for approval, is there somewhere we can obtain now for testing purposes?

SearchMenu - Search Faster in Firefox

Excellent! But can't access OPTIONS in FF 10.x or 11.x Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Excellent and very useful add-on, but can't access options to add google-play (formerly android market). It just loads the options waiting page.......

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.5). 

Add-on Compatibility Reporter

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you, but I'm confused with how this interacts with extensions.checkCompatibility.6.0.1, as I see this add-on ads many such Preference Names.

If I use this, then can I delete my prior extensions.checkCompatibility.6.0.1 ?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.1-signed.1-signed). 

Find All

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very useful and one of my favorite add-ons! Still working in Firefox 6.0.If you choose to update this add-on, I am unable to use the alternate row feature because I use white text and the alternate row light gray shading makes the text nearly impossible to read. Otherwise this is 5 stars all the way!

Thank you!

Tile Tabs

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Version 4.12 resolved the Ctrl+drag issue! This developer's (DW-dev) support has been stellar. I am awarding 5 stars only because 6 stars is not yet possible. Thank you!

Restart Button

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Thank you http://labs.strk.jp/ !

Works OK in Firefox 4.0.1. I had to replace QuickRestart 1.1.6 as it was not (officially) compatible with Firefox 4.x.

Tile Tabs

Excellent! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I've been searching for years for an add-on that would give Firefox similar tiling functionality to Opera and this is the best yet. Thank you!

Tile Tabs

One feature suggestion Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Option to Full Zoom In/Out only Selected Tile which has focus ( Ctrl plus + or - ), similar to: "Synchronize Scroll only when scrolling Selected Tile" option. Currently zooming affects all tiles at once. - Thank you!
