Better Gmail 2

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hooray the experimental 0.9.7 version (found under the poorly named "Older Versions" link) fixed the error and the favicon count..

Fantastic plugin! My life was not the same while it was disabled.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.7). 

Better Gmail 2

Throwing Error Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great plugin but I had to disable it because it was throwing this error on a constant basis:

Error: uncaught exception: CustomError: Service for "H" is not registered

Not sure if it's a gmail update or an update to your plugin that caused the problem but as a developer i need to keep my error console clear

PDF Download

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I enjoyed this addon until their most recent update. Now it throws an insane amount of JS errors similar to "p.onstatuschange is not a function" which is a deprecated function that is part of the nsIDownloadProgressListener. A boat load of errors might not be a problem for the average user but as a developer it's incredible annoying. Trying to wade through a sea of JS errors to find the one that's related to my content is incredibly tedious. I also started to ignore the "JS errors" indicator in developer toolbar because of this bug.

Please fix it!

LastTab

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Love it. The preview panel is a nice idea but I disabled it because of the slight delay it causes when switching tabs. The flicker of the box appearing/disappearing was also a little annoying.

Might I suggest you build in a delay? If the user presses and holds ctrl+tab for more than .5 seconds (or so) then you show the preview window. Otherwise you just switch tabs.

Header Spy

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It took me a little while to figure out how to add additional header items but I eventually figured it out and loved the add-on .... until I updated to FF3 and found it incompatible :(

Please update plugin to work in firefox 3

Performance Problems Not yet rated

Cool idea but flawed implementation.

For quite sometime I have had some serious performance problems with firefox. A new tab or window would take ~5 seconds to open up on a fresh restart and sometimes up to 10 or 15 seconds if it had been running for a while. Needless to say this was very very annoying.

Today I finally went through and disabled my plugins one by one and as soon as I disabled this one the performance problems went away.
