Quick Gestures

Solid Effort; Needs Refinement Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I haven't found an implementation of quick gestures for android as solid as this, and it works well for the most part, but there are a few considerations that could be made to really tighten this up. For reference, I'm using this on an HTC One M9 (viewport 320 * 640).

In the vein of what was mentioned before me - it's mildly annoying that the screen will scroll on input, but I recognize that there's no way to reasonably prevent scrolling on the first input. Perhaps lock the screen once Quick Gestures recognizes that a combination is being made (ie: based on the user sensitivity settings).

Also, and I think this is a straight up bug, but on certain windows (I haven't figured out a commonality), the command bar at the top won't actually scale properly. It'll show up vastly bigger than it should (in both dimensions, but with the horizontal overflow hidden). This results in it a) taking up a crazy amount of space and; b) means that the command that's shown on the bar is actually hidden off-screen!

Trying to undo a closed tab, gives a JS error about aCloseTabData.entries being undefined.

Perhaps the only other thing I could suggest is to have the command bar style somewhat match the toast message disaply - it's, uh, a little on the ugly side, sorry!

Edit: ...aaaand only after posting that did I see "Last Updated: September 14, 2013". Ah, screw it.

Menu Wizard

Import/Export Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works great, but it really needs an import/export option - I see you said it would be in v1.04 or 1.05, which was, uh, quite some time ago...

Simple White

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Still looks fantastic on FF32. Only thing I'd note is that when I upgraded from FF24 ESR to this version of Simple White, it would appear that we've lost the ability to have transparent tabs. Don't know if this is a limitation in FF32, but it would be nice to get that ability back if possible.

Edit: Issue resolved, thanks to the assistance of the dev!

Textarea Cache

Can't Remove Icon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Been using this for eons without issue. However, I've noticed in FF32 that I no longer have the ability to outright remove the icon from the statusbar, since legacy statusbar items are now all grouped together. An option to do so would be good.

Classic Theme Restorer (Fx29-56)

Like Seeing in Colour For the First Time Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This addon has solved nearly every issue that had me stuck on 24 ESR. I absolutely, positively hated the new UI with every fibre of my being. This has even unlocked some additional niceties I hadn't noticed! Glorious!

My only issue with non-default complete themes has been the lack of ability to force the v2 (ie: transparent) tab-bar. It would be nice if we could override this, though I'm admittedly not sure if that's actually possible. All things considered though, it's an absolutely tiny trade-off for what this extenstion brings to the table.

Targeted Advertising Cookie Opt-Out (TACO)

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

You claim that the two star rating is based on folk not fully understanding the technology, but I have to dispute that. While this product has solid functionality, the UI is such a complete travesty that it's utterly unusable!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.65.1-signed.1-signed). 


Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The fact that this is necessary in the first place is quite disappointing. Nonetheless, this is a nice and small add-on that does exactly what it says on the tin. A great no-fuss solution!

Kodak Zoom

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Lots of options for customisable hotkeys and menus, it fills the gap of a much-needed tool and does so with total perfection.

Intelligent Middle Clickums

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This has failed to work quite a few times already, most notable on imageshack.
