Better Image Viewer

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works well :)

suggestions:
1- Image rotation
2- A save button
3- a save all button, where it save all images that are opened with Better Image Viewer,
4- If possible, not to use the Shift+drag to save the images, instead having an icon in the popup toolbar where if you drag it to your desktop the image will be saved there. I am lazy and I save a lot of images.
5- gestures to rotate the image or save etc.
6- being able to play GIF's with lower speed, move between frames,
7- having the ability to move toolbar position

Thank you for your hard work. <3

Tab counter

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It works.

Tab Mix WebExtension (experimental)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I voted for all, and please implement opening tab next to current because it is possible to do so, and much needed.

Popup window

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

In my case, I need the popped out window to stay on top.

Edit: There is no way to bring back the popped up window to your tabs. I suggest to have a button on top right corner.

I use AutoHotKey to fix Stay on top issue:

I use this add-on to open videos and play them while browsing. I know there is Popup Video(WebExtension), but here is why I don't use it:
1- the video does not resume from where it was.
2- you can't go back to the tab and resume from where you stopped (currently I have the same issue with Popup Window too, but I hope that would be fixed.
3- it is not seamless, but i assume that is Mozilla fault too, though, I think if Popup video worked like popup window it would've been more seamless and can support more site. I zoom out to make the window smaller for Facebook videos, but that ruin my other Facebook tabs, so take that in mind.

I used the similar feature on Opera. Try it and see how amazing it is. Even when you popped out a video you will see it's playing on the main tab and on the popped video simultaneously, which I assume it is basically mirroring the video portion. it is seamlessly fast.

to sum it, popup window is better than Popup Video(WebExtension), and of course you need AutoHotKey for both of them, otherwise, it is pointless. oh, Popup Video(webExtension) is much much better than Min Vid... I think

Thanks for your hard work <3

Custom Search Engine

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Not working, I typed "msduck test" and nothing happend.

Edit: It worked, I didn't click "save preferences."

Bookmarks Manager and Viewer

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.5). 

Bookmark search plus 2

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

it is a good alternative for Got to Parent Folder. a bit slow though. And it will not find bookmarks if you typed their Tags, keywords, or content of the description field. I dream and wish if with time this would develop to a complete bookmark manager.
Features I would love to see:
1- smart search, where you can find bookmarks by searching in their Tags, Keywords, and contect of the description field

2- be able to open it not just in the side panel but also in a new tab/window

3- be able to edit a certain "tags" for all the bookmarks that share that tag. The Reason: sometimes I misspell a tag and then by using the Firefox autocomplete I add that tag to many bookmarks.

4- context menu for finding the parent folder. the reason: in case you wanted to use the built in bookmark manager.

5- a set of colored icon for the folders, and a set of Alphabetical icon, and each letter have several colors: For example, there would be several colors for letter "M". in that way you asign custom icons for each folder which makes it easy to visually locate a folder.

6- getting Tag suggestion from the website keywords/search tags. meaning instead of me manually adding the tags, it would automatically fill the tags filed with tags from the site.

PS: In order to find a bookmark with a certain tag, first search it with Firefox Bookmarks when you find the Bookmark copy its name and search it in Bookmark Search Plus 2


Edit, my reply:
1- " Could I ask you to elaborate on "a bit slow""

It is not a big deal: ) When I launch Bookmark Search plus 2, it takes it about 6 seconds to start.

2- "On 1), alas, as you can read on the add-on description page,"

I am willing to vote, just give me a link :(

3- "2) You mean open the add-on as a new page

" yes opening Bookmark Search Plus 2 in a popped up window or a new tab

4- " 4)... not sure this would be so useable .. any other suggestion ?) "

For example in the built in Bookmark manager, a user will search for a bookmark then right click on it and choose "Show me parent folder" which will opens Bookmark Search plus 2 focused on that specific bookmark.

5- "6)...I guess now I could completely rewrite tag"

I believe that is not a good idea, If in future the API gave you access to at least read the description and tags, then you can have two useful features:
1- be able to find bookmarks by their tags/ the text in their description.
2- be able to make a right click menu option with in Bookmark Search Plus 2 which will open the built in properties window of bookmarks to edit the tags/description.

6- When bookmarking with BSP2 You can fetch tags/description from the website, then show it in a popup window for users to copy it manually to the builtin bookmark property panel ... I know it is a hacky way and most users wont use it.


PS: "I suggest you request Firefox to extend the API" HOW? send me links, I will vote... I'll do anything!

Thanks for the detailed response, much appreciated.

Tab Groups

two minute since I've been using this, and it works Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I just wonder, where it saves the Tabs, just in case of a crash or a failure?

And if you uninstalled it, will all the tabs group merged into one? Future will answer this.

Thanks for caring, thus sharing.

Bookmark Current Tab Set

Suggestions Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks for sharing, Bookmark Current Tab Set saved me many times :)
here is some suggestions:

1-The option to save opened tabs in Tab-group in a separate sub-folder.
For example it would look like this:

Tue Jun 03 2014 19:41:00
>main
>industrial shearing machine
>Finding a good school
>nil1(if no name has been assigned to that Tab-group)
>nil2(if no name has been assigned to that Tab-group)
>Pinned Tabs (for tabs that are pinned :) )

2-The option to save opened tabs in only the opened Tab-Group.
For example:

Tue Jun 03 2014 19:41:00
>Finding a good school
>Pinned Tabs (for tabs that are pinned :) )

Bookmark Current Tab Set

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

if you do a lot of research on firefox and sometimes you postpone a project then bookmark current tab set is the solution the only thing i wish in the new version of bookmark current tab set is to save the order of the tabs + their location in group tab

Image Tools

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

i view and save a lot of images on firefox and if you do to you will love this add-on and my favorite tool is converting a complete web page to an image though i wish if i could control the quality of the snapshot and if there was a shortcut to snap the page and save it all with one click instead of right clicking but still its the best thank you Matúš
