FlexBar

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Great concept, and it certainly adds a much needed customization to Firefox; however, this add-on is unfortunately unusable in it's current state. (ver. 0.9.5)It's biggest flaw is that it completely overrides all default functionality of ALL toolbars, including the search-bar and the sidebar; and it does so irrevocably, without any possibility to restore previous default behavior for said toolbars.
Setting them to permanent OFF state doesn't help either, as once you use them via their hotkeys ( Ctrl+B for Bokmark sidebar and Ctrl+F for Find as examples) the add-on simply switches the back to Auto-Hide mode.One example of an instance where this can become annoying is when I tried to drag a tab inside the Bookmark side-bar and it disappeared before I have a chance to allocate the new bookmark.
This, and other future compatibility issues could simply be resolved by allowing a toolbar to fall-back to it's original default behaviour when disabling it in the add-on.

Another annoying hiccup is the big blue button which doesn't even appear in my case, probably because of compatibility issues with the multi-row bookmark bar Add-On I also have installed. Instead it just creates a big void where it's supposed to be; this also poses the dangerous possibility of locking myself out of using Firefox's menu-bar altogether.
In my opinion, this button should be replaced with a more innocuous icon, or better-yet a customizable hotkey.

For now I will keep this add-on disabled and hope for a better updated version which will resolve these issues.

As the obsessive-compulsive bookmarker that I am (over 100 and counting), all I have to say about this Add-on is THANK YOU!

Download Flash and Video

Perfect! ...well almost. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

A simple-to-use Add-on that works on the same one-click principle as Flash-Got, but which can download any flash file-type, even externally-loaded ones (you know, the ones that don't show-up in the Media tab of View-Page-Info)
Only glitch is, they're all saved as .swf, enen .flv ones (still playable though). Also unlike Flash-Got it can ONLY download Flash files, you still need Flash-Got to get your .mp3's :P ...but then again it's not supposed to do that so,
All in all this add-on is a must for anyone that likes to save and collect his flash-games after playing them (like I do)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1). 

FireDownload

Pretty Good... for BETA Stage. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Well now... this IS surprising, a download accelerator that actually works.
It does accelerate your downloads, though not maybe by 10x, not even by far if you have a Broadband Connection, but when down loading from speed-limited "free" download hosts you really can notice the difference.
The only draw-back is the complete and utter lack of costumization, which also means all your downloads will be sent to the default Downloads folder in MyDocuments.
Still it does have One option which I'm fond of, and that is the ability to choose wether or not to use it by clicking a checkbox in the file-save dialogue.

All in all, worth a download ;)
