X-notifier (for Gmail,Hotmail,Yahoo,AOL ...)

4.0 is a disaster, revert to 3.5.23 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Every single feature of 4.0 is broken. New mail isn't notified on any accounts (Gmail, Yahoo), account names don't correspond to their correct accounts, etc. Please revert back to 3.5.23 and start from scratch.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.0.2).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Blackout

Great Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Fantastic add-on. Please add support for newer FF versions!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1). 

FF Rocker

Perfect, elegant, small Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great add-on that adds a simple feature which should have become part of about:config years ago. Tiny & efficient, as it should be.

Ghostery – Privacy Ad Blocker

Perfect Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Ghostery's functions should be built into Firefox.

The add-on itself is a great work of coding. It clocks in at 150 KB, and offers far more than other, much more resource heavy security add-ons.

A big thank you to the developer.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.5.2.1-signed). 

X-notifier (for Gmail,Hotmail,Yahoo,AOL ...)

Perfectly done Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great add-on: It always works, and is always being improved. I wish there were a stand-alone program for Windows that did the same thing.

A big thank you to the developer.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.7.6.1-signed). 

FF Rocker

A great work of coding. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I tested all of the Firefox rocker gesture supporting add-ons, and this is by far the best. It seems to be perfectly coded, adding rocker functionality and clocking in at just 10 KB.

Great work, and thank you to the author. I wish that all FF add-ons were this well executed.

FF Rocker

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Simple, tiny, perfect.

Please update this to work with FF4.

Greasemonkey

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

An excellent add-on, especially when combined with Greasefire. There are a lot of fantastic scripts for most popular sites/pages. It is an excellent piece of programming to boot, being tiny and well maintained. Kudos for making it freely available.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.20090123.1). 

Tiny Menu

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Does what it says, and saves a lot of valuable screen space that you never really use. I love that you can keep your bookmarks unhidden if desired.

It's also a beautiful piece of programming, being absolutely tiny and very well maintained. Kudos

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0). 

Speed Dial

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I was a long-time Fast Dial user who wanted something more customizable and better coded. I found that in Speed Dial. It is freaking tiny considering how feature packed and just plain beautiful it is, and the authors keep it very well maintained. I love that I can export my settings and Dials. Kudos

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.1). 

Greasefire

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A nice addition to Greasemonkey. It is a beautiful piece of programming, being tiny and very well maintained. Kudos

BetterPrivacy-signed

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A wonderful add-on that every user should use to maintain their right to privacy. Something hidden corporate opt-ins strip from us.

Once set up you will never notice BP. It's a beautiful piece of programming code, being tiny and very well maintained.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.39). 

CustomizeGoogle

Makes google not-evil by removing tracking and ads. |It also makes the various Google components more usable by adding streaming page loads and links to other search engines.

This add-on is a beautiful piece of programming code; It's tiny and very well-maintained. Kudos
