My Reviews

Gmail - Add Row Highlights

Excellent. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

No reviews? Well, here's one: This works. :)

It's simple, and, well, it highlights the rows (yellow) without any lag. If you don't need to install another Gmail add-on that has tonnes of additional features, most of which are probably now included in Gmail, or Labs, then this is the one for you.

My only suggestion for improvement would be to allow users to configure the background/foreground highlight colours. Maybe a delay in ms, too.

Thanks, sxshaffer. This is just what I was looking for.

Note: I'm still using FF3.6x due to certain addon requirements, so I have not tested this with any other versions.

Edit: After upgrading to FF12, I can say this still works as intended.

Memory Fox

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Tried to install via the Install button, but it gave me an error. The installer was trying to install "https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/downloads/file/107120/memory_fox-5.4-fx-win.xpi?src=addondetail".

I removed the "?src=addondetail" and it worked. Will test this out now.

(using 3.6.13 and XP/SP3)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.4). 

SmallringFX DARKBlue

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Definitely one of the best dark themes. Not too gaudy, and the colour is fairly well balanced.I have to admit that despite some frustrating color choices, I love this theme mostly because it seems to run A HELLUVA LOT FASTER than the past few themes I've run (last long-term one was BlackX). I mean, FireFox has never felt this responsive to me, at least as long as I can remember. I don't know what you did, but keep doing it. ;)A couple of problems though:- The 'Clear Recent History' window is too small for some reason. This one should be fixed as soon as possible, but I'll live with it a while longer while I test the theme a bit more.- On some add-on windows, e.g. Form History Control, the list line highlights are awful. They alternate from black to white, without any gradiation. I'd like to see that layout match the organize bookmarks list display, or even the lighter greys in the Add-Ons window..- the ghosted-item grey is a bit too dark (e.g. on Options windows/tabs)A job very, very well done.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.921). 

Tab Scroller

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Please make this work with CTRL key too. Much needed so that I can finally move to 3.6!

To the people asking for a 3.5 version, you should use TabNavit. It's the best tab scroller, and works with 3.5. (But not 3.6).

TabNavIt

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

randlieb: Re: your suggestion to use TabWheelScroll: No, that is completely different. It does not allow you to scroll tabs unless your pointer is in the tab row. This add-on allows you to hold down CTRL key anywhere in the window and scroll tabs. TWS is next to useless. This add-on needs to be updated! Unfortunately the author seems to be AWOL. It's a shame, because it's the last add-on to keep me on 3.5 rather than upgrading to 3.6.

This user has a previous review of this add-on.

PLEASE upgrade this. Nothing else comes close to how well this works. I've been refusing to upgrade FF until I can use this this, because there's nothing compatible with 3.6 to replace it.

Pinger

Just what I was looking for, but 1 small problem Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent add-on! This is just what I need.

The problem I encountered was that the pop-up results window shows up "underneath" Flash elements on the page. If I can't scroll around it, the results are hidden under the Flash layers.

My solution was to shrink my unscrollable window until I could scroll around the Pinger results.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0). 

Snap Links [FF3]

Essential, save for 1 crippling bug Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This is still one of my most relied upon extensions, but unfortunately I've had to deactivate this current version. When enabled, the right-click context menu is shifted a few hundred pixels to the left of the pointer. I've tested all combinations of enabled/disabled extensions and narrowed it down to this one. One thing I noticed was that the context menu is properly positioned when right-clicking within the FF add-on window, so the behaviour seems to be restricted to the regular browser window.
