Firefox Multi-Account Containers

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Full disclosure: I miss Tab Groups! Like, REALLY miss them!

That being said, I've learned to live without them. Multi-Containers (from what I understand) may well supplant and/or replace Tab Groups some day, but until then the functionality it brings surpasses what Tab Groups originally did.

Placing websites in specific containers allows for multiple sessions within the same window, making it much easier to switch between multiple accounts without any complicated fiddling here, there, and everywhere; and as someone who maintains multiple e-mail accounts on the same service, it certainly beats logging in and out repeatedly! The additional benefit of reducing and/or negating online fingerprinting/profiling also adds to the usefulness of this add-on.

Highly recommend it, and hope its future is all but assured

RIP Tab Groups, until you get brought back from the dead :)

Tab Groups

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Don't let the title fool you; this is an excellent addon, and I say teething issues as it's only been around less than a month at the time of this review.

As it currently stands, tabs from previous sessions restored using Session Manager (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/session-manager/) restored correctly (and more cleanly) and it funtions in much the same way as the previous, Mozilla supported feature.

Now the teething issues. I regularly clear my internet history when I close Firefox, so saving Tab Groups by default isn't really an issue for me; I mostly restore them using Session Manager. However, the yellow bar notifiying every time that they will be cleared I think will getting annoying after a while, so I'd like to see the option to disable it made available in the addons preferences/settings. Additionally, there is s slight issue with the appearance of the Tab Groups button when using it in conjunction with the TabGroups Menu addon (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/tabgroups-menu/) but that may be a compatability problem on their end. All in all though, no significant complaints and nothing I'll lose any sleep over.

Otherwise, a fantastic addition to the Firefox addon collection and long may it continue for this "little used" feature.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.1). 

TimeTracker

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hey guys

As you may have noticed, TimeTracker once again no longer works in FF5. However, here's a quick guid to fix it:
(Note: If you have already downloaded the *.xpi, skip to step 2)

1. If still available download the TimeTracker installer from "http://hotfile.com/dl/112924019/b83f225/timetracker-1.2.5-fx4.0.xpi.html" (Thanks to Kenoubi)

2. Change the file extension from "*.xpi" to "*.zip"

3. Extract the "install.rdf" file

4. Edit the line "<em:maxVersion>4.0.*</em:maxVersion>" to read "<em:maxVersion>5.*</em:maxVersion>"

5. Import the "install.rdf" back into the zip file

6. Change the file extension back to "*.xpi" (Note: make sure there is only 1 install.rdf file in the root directory of the zip before changing the extension)

7. Run the "*.xpi" and it should be working agin

Any problems, let me know and I'll try to figure what gone wrong
