Private Browsing Personas

Exactly What I Wanted! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have no idea why Mozilla doesn't allow personas in Private Browsing by default, so I'm glad this add-on exists!

Classic Toolbar Buttons

Great Add On! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love the flexibility this gives me on changing the layout of Firefox! My only request is the option of using "Modern red/orange/green/etc Icon" for all the navigation buttons, similar to the download button. That way I'd be able to match my forward, back, stop, refresh, and home buttons to my theme.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4.9.4). 

Video DownloadHelper

Best Way to Download Videos! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've been using this add on for years. It makes downloading videos very easy, which is great for any you come across that you just have to keep.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.9.24.1-signed). 

Windows Xp Style

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Looks great with Classic Toolbar Buttons for a nice Firefox 2 theme!

Tab Mix Plus

Does What I Wanted and More! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I installed it to hide the tab bar with only one open tab, unless I'm using tab groups, in which case it doesn't hide the tab bar. Keep in mind that if you're also using Classic Theme Restorer, you HAVE to uncheck "Hide The Tab Bar with One Tab" otherwise it will hide the tab bar when you're using tab groups.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.1.5.1.1-signed). 

Classic Theme Restorer

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This perfectly restores the customization features that were lost with Firefox 29. Thank you so much!

I do have one feature suggestion:
It would be nice to have the option of curved tabs that are not australized.

EDIT: Apparently I misunderstood what "australized" meant. It's hard to describe, but what I meant was, similar to how the classic tabs have their "outline" around them whether they're selected or not, the curved tabs could look like that. See the pictures below, maybe it'll make it clearer:

EDIT 2: That's exactly what I was talking about, but it's not doing that on my work machine. I switched to Curved Tabs (alternative), and it looks exactly the same as Curved Tabs (australis default). I'm on v1.2.1, Firefox 30, Windows 8.1

I did re-install CTR and it didn't make a difference.

EDIT 3: I'll give that a try as soon as I get a chance. Thank you so much for spending so much time working with me on this!

EDIT 4: I finally got a chance to install it, and it works great, except that the selected tab doesn't use custom color. I know this is a test build though, so I'm sure you'll figure something out for the official update. Also, I really love the new interface!

RedShift V4

:( RedShift is No More... But Memories of RedShift is here! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

November 19, 2015:
This used to be my favorite Firefox theme. Unfortunately, Mozilla has made it difficult to keep themes up-to-date by releasing a new version of Firefox often. However, Personas are easy to keep up to date, and RedShift inspired me to create Memories of RedShift! Check it out at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-Us/firefox/addon/memories-of-redshift/

I COME BEARING GREAT NEWS!!!

RedShift V4 IS compatible with Firefox 6!

Instructions:
1) Install "Nightly Tester Tools." This can be found as an Add-On for Firefox.
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/nightly-tester-tools/

2) Click "Tools" then hover over "Nightly Tester Tools." Select "Force Add-On Compatibility."

3) Restart Firefox.

4) Click "Tools," "Add-Ons," "RedShift V4." Click on the button that says "Enable."

5) Restart Firefox.


This worked for me.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.0).
