CSS Usage

Extremely useful Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is a very helpful AddOn -- basically marks up your stylesheet with colors to identify which elements, classes, and IDs are used, and numbers to indicate how many times they appear.

You can also then export this "cleaned" stylesheet, with all the unused styles marked as such -- it doesn't remove them but adds "UNUSED" at the beginning of each style declaration so you can test if they can be safely removed.

One feature I would love is the ability to search for a specific class or ID (similar to "Firefinder," which no longer works).

Not helpful Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I like the concept but the execution is so flawed I didn't find this at all useful.

As far as CSS, inline styles are maintained, but classes and IDs are not. Worse, it inserts things like "style='null'" and "href='null'" on any elements that don't have these attributes.

Stick with Firebug.

Simple but indispensible Rated 5 out of 5 stars

If you download a lot of images this will save you a ton of time. Very handy.

Awesome Screenshot Plus - Capture, Annotate & More

Needs a "move" tool Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I want to give this 5 stars -- first impression was it's the best screen capture addon I've seen. And it is very slick, well-designed, simple and easy to use. Right-click, choose whether you want to capture the visible part of the screen or the entire webpage, make your annotations, and save it locally or online. Perfect. I also like that it has just the basic tools that you need -- no more, no less.

But one limitation makes it almost unusable for me: once you've added something (a shape, line, text), it's stuck there -- you can't change it in any way. You can't move it, change the color, change the shape, resize it -- you can't even delete it. If it's text, you can't edit the text. Granted, you can undo each step -- but depending on how many things you've done, this is really like starting over.

Oddly, once you've drawn a shape, you can't even resize it -- even while you're still able to move it.

The simple addition of a "move" tool that would allow you to select one of your elements after it has been placed and move it, scale it, edit it -- and this is a 5-star addon for sure.

Image Download

Does nothing Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Using Firefox 3.5 and it still doesn't work -- nothing is downloaded.

Instructions are non-existent, but following those in the reviews here I did this:

1) Tools > Add-ons > Image Download > Preferences
2) Enter a Category, Browse to choose a download folder
3) Click "Add/Modify" (also tried "Save" -- neither one does anything)
