ScrapBook Plus

One thing missing... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Superb addon! Better than the Scrapbook one I have used for years.

There is one thing missing though:

"Capture multiple URLs" doesn't have a "depth" field so that I could specify the links dept I want it to go when capturing multiple pages.

It would be VERY useful feature to have as, for example, when I wish to capture multiple pages, like:

http://someurl.com/contents.html?page=1
http://someurl.com/contents.html?page=2
...
http://someurl.com/contents.html?page=10

If I would like to capture specific links on these pages (and for which I could use the filter option), as things stand right now I am unable to do that, but I have to load each individual page in the browser and then use "Capture Page As", which is VERY slow - I'd rather use the Capture Multiple URLs function with an added option to specify the depth of the links I wish the capture to go to.

Apart from the above, everything else seems spot on.

Just on a side note - as a comparison, the "Capture multiple URLs" function in the "normal" Scrapbook plugin doesn't even have any other options apart from specifying a URL, so Scrapbook+ wins here, hands down, again!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.8.22.38). 

FoxyProxy Standard

version 2.8.1. does NOT work on FF2 (2.0.0.14) Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Exception: ReferenceError: XPCSafeJSObjectWrapper is not defined. That prevents using this add-on on FF2 (2.0.0.14). Version 2.8.0 worked and I am getting this when tried to upgrade. Please FIX!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.8.1). 

Old Location Bar

Is this 100% FF2 compatible Rated 5 out of 5 stars

OK, to Kakkoii - I have 2 questions (plus the subject line):

1. Does this search URL's only AND starting at the beginning of the URL?
2. Does it show the most-visited matches at the top (i.e. as 1st choice)?

This is how FF2 used to display the matches in the url bar.

If the answer to both questions is 'yes' then I am going to install FF3 again
and add this add-on to it, until then I will stick with the tried-and-tested
FF2 and avoid any further headaches and embarrassment.

Kakkoii, I found the following 'tweaks' regarding removing the hideous nature of 'that thing', but as I am on FF2 (and will only move to FF3 when I am 100% certain that the 'hideous thing' can be replaced with the FF2 behaviour) I cannot confirm these would you be able to testify that they work:

browser.urlbar.matchOnlyTyped=true (address-only search)

browser.urlbar.maxRichResults=0 (remove the limit of showing matches - FF2 behaviour. This in FF3 is restricted to 12).

browser.urlbar.matchBehavior=2 (possibly beginsWith URL-only search);

browser.urlbar.richResults=false (disable the FF3-type behaviour?).

in userChrome.css:
=============
to hide the star button: Add this line to the end of the file: #star-button {display: none !important;}
to always show the 'Go' button: #go-button { visibility: visible !important; }
to hide the web feed icon: #feed-button[feeds] { display: none !important; }
23/07/2008 Update: Kakkoii, there is something you might be interested in to incorporate it into your add on: apparently, the awful bar is going to be fully configurable in FF3.1 - FF3.1a1 is due on 25/07/2008 and will have these changes incorporated into it, but you can see the particular changes to the awful bar in great detail here: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=395161 and here - http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/index.cgi/rev/90de3fdd3a16

You may be able to incorporate these changes into your add on without the need for installing 3.1-alpha1...
