Adblock Plus

AdBlock betrayal of entire userbase Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The change to allow advertising for money has turned me off from AdBlock Plus. This is a complete betrayal of the entire userbase. I will not recommend this extension to anyone in the future and I await the inevitable fork.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.1). 

SSL Button

Compatible with Firefox 5 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This extension appears to work fine with Firefox 5.0, I'm not sure why it hasn't been updated to indicate it's compatible. I used Nightly Tester Tools to disable the extension compatibility check. Editing the install.rdf and manually overriding the version check also works. Please update the extension's version check, this is a handy extension.

bug489729 (Disable detach and tear off tab)

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Ever since upgrading to Firefox 3.5, at least once a day I accidentally drag a tab off the tab bar that pops up in its own window. I can't for the life of me see why someone would want that behavior by default, but I did expect it would be configurable. After searching through the Preferences dialog, and then through about:config I ended up finding this extension via google. I can't believe that this so called "feature" can not be disabled in stock Firefox. I sure am glad someone cared enough to solve the problem with an extension though.

It works great! I'm using a developmental build of Tab Mix Plus also, and while some people seem to have had problems with TabMixPus, it seems to be working fine for me. If you're having problems, go to the TabMixPlus forums and look for a newer devel build.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3).
