Add-ons I've created

Change Search Shortcut

Allows to change the search shortcut. After the comedy with Panorama taking over CTRL+E, then switching to CTRL+SHIFT+E, without restoring CTRL+E, I've decided to make this very simple plug-in to allow people to choose their own shortcut.

My Reviews

BarTab

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

While I'm grateful for patching this add-on to work on FF8, I have to report a few major bugs. Actually, one exists from long ago.

- bug #1: when auto-unloading tabs (on timer), the "ghost" tab gets created one position *after* its original. This can be fixed by going into the code (prototypes.js) and removing the "+1" from line 230. (this was from long ago)

- bug #2: when auto-unloading tabs that reside in different groups (i.e. panorama groups), the new "ghost" tab gets created (or moved) in some unrelated group.

- bug #3: when auto-unloading tabs in other groups (other than the current one), sometimes after the unload, the current tab appears in (presumably) the group in which the last unload occured. Bringing up panorama and dismissing it again (without doing anything else), seems to rectify that problem. Apparently, the current tab isn't really moved to the 'other' group, it's just a display bug, where the add-on doesn't (properly?) switch back to the original group (or something).

Please, fix!

Also, what happened to the "when switching to an unloaded tab" option?

Come on, man... Firefox 4b10: even with the tweak "snenad" suggested, all tabs are unloaded but all titles are "New Tab"...
WTF?

Compact Menu 2

I love it. Please update for Firefox 4.0

Barlesque

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I am beginning to like this a lot.
Would it be possible to have both left and right bars? Each one with independent show/hide controls. You could have the "flexible space" 'object' as a marker for what gets sent left and what right. ;)
Also, it's always showing grey; i.e. not working with Personas.

Nice add-on. I really don't like that address bar now gets to show the target address as well.
Now, if only you could integrate some of the functionality of this add-on: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/statusbar-restyled/ like the colours and little icons for loading and done and error etc...
Also, the add-on is adding a grey border line on top of the add-on bar. Please remove.
