TabCounter

Doesn't appear to be compatible with the new UI changes introduced with Firefox 29 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I'm a long time user of tab-counter by Gryllida, but that Add-on wasn't compatible with the UI changes that came with Firefox 29. TabCounter is also a small Add-on, which I like. There is no reason for a simple tab counter extension/Add-on to be more than a few KB. Unfortunately, TabCounter 1.0.3 appears to have the same problem as tab-counter 0.2.4, that is, it is incompatible with the UI changes of Firefox 29+.

Please update TabCounter so that it isn't hard-coded to appear where it always has, but rather can be placed anywhere other "toolbar" icons can be. Perhaps, you might want to release the new update as TabCounter 2.0 or v2 for those running Firefox 29+, but keep the old version (1.0.3) for anyone running Firefox versions 1-28, since 1.0.3 seems to have worked fine.

Thank you for your Add-on and for an update! Once you update the Add-on, I will be happy to give it another try.

tab-counter

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I have used tab-counter for around 4 years. It is a tiny install and has always worked perfectly. From that stand-point, I give it 5 stars. However, when Firefox 4 was released, it took Gryllida quite some time to update tab-counter. Furthermore, since Firefox 29 was released, tab-counter has not worked at all because there is no status-bar or Add-on bar any longer. So, on those two counts, tab-counter gets 1 star.

Gryllida, please update tab-counter so that it isn't hard-coded to appear where it always has, but rather can be placed anywhere other "toolbar" icons can be. Perhaps, you might want to release the new update as tab-counter 2.0 or v2 for those running Firefox 29+, but keep the old version (0.2.4) for anyone running Firefox versions 1-28, since 0.2.4 worked perfectly.

Gryllida, thank you for your Add-on and for an update!

OpenDownload

I prefer RunDownload, but OpenDownload was the original Rated 3 out of 5 stars

RunDownload is preferable to me because it is smaller (I'm pretty sure) than OpenDownload and I prefer the button to say "Run" than "Open". That said, either one (RunDownload or OpenDownload) being maintained/updated for future Firefox versions would be nice.

What happened to Kai Liu? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I use one of Kai's Windows programs daily and used to visit his website (code.kliu.org) all the time as well. All of a sudden around July 11, 2009, Kai disappeared. No posts to his website. No posts to his blog. No answers to emails sent to him. So, sadly, I think Kai must have been in an accident or had something else happen to him.

If anyone wants to take over the development of this add-on, grab the source code from his website while you can. I have the source code as well.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.2.1). 

CSRF Protector

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

As "E4tShtAndDie" said, the hash issue seems to be related to third-party cookies. I normally have the "Accept third-party cookies" option (see Options --> Privacy --> Cookies) un-checked. After I temporarily re-enabled third-party cookies, I had no problem installing/downloading the add-on.

For those that want more information about the Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) issue, I would recommend checking out Episode #166 of the Security Now podcast (http://www.grc.com/securitynow.htm). That is how I became aware of this security issue.

QuickPageZoom

QuickPageZoom 1.0 -- simple & works Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This extension/add-on works fine on Firefox 3.0 Beta 5.

It is simple and there is no configuration or options and none are really needed.

Also, I love the fact that the extension/add-on is quite small... only 9KB.

Just install and look down in the lower right corner of the browser for the magnifying glasses with a + or - sign. Click on the + and you zoom in and click on the - and you zoom out.

Anytime you want to go back to the original/default 100% view, just right-click on the magnifying glasses area and the original view is restored.

About the only "improvements" I can imagine might be slightly sharper magnifying glass images and possibly a slider control like IE7 has. However, I like the small size and a slider control like IE7 has would obviously increase the size of the extension. Therefore, I am content with the current "button" implementation.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0). 

SearchPreview

Nice, but larger pictures or a couple of options would be nice Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I like the fact that the add-on is small and simple.

I would have to agree that I do not find this all that helpful because the pictures are quite small... not enough detail to help me decide to click or not click on a search result.

I personally would like to see at least a couple of check box options for larger sizes. Maybe a check box for "standard" (which is the current size), "larger", and "largest".

Possibly you could combine standard, larger, and largest with a hover/pop-up option so that the standard image size is displayed, but if you hover your mouse cursor over an image for 1 or 2 seconds, a larger size pops up.

Finally, to help with the servers, bandwidth, etc., maybe you could directly pull images derived from the sites and not by your servers. However, a good high speed connection would be needed for that to avoid to much of a wait period.

It's a great idea... keep up the great work!
