Show Anchors 2

Fix for Anchor Button Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Show Anchors currently works without any problems using the "Show anchors" context menu option, but this is not very convenient.

Earlier versions of Show Anchors provided a toolbar button that could be clicked to turn the display of anchors on and off. It appears that this fuctionality can be restored by means of simple edit to one of the add-on's java script files:

Steps to fix:

Download the addon (filename: show_anchors_2-1.12-fx.xpi)

Unpack show_anchors_2-1.12-fx.xpi (which is in zip format - if using WinZip first change the extension name from .xpi to .zip)

After unpacking, goto the folder named: "showanchors2" (which is a subfolder of "content" which in turn is a subfolder of "chrome")

Using an editor of your choice, edit the file named: showanchors2.js and change the line:

//document.getElementById('statusbar-display').setAttribute('label', nodeurl);

to:

document.getElementById('statusbar-display').setAttribute('label', nodeurl);

Repack the file (must be in zip format) and make sure the extension of the packed file is named .xpi

Manually install the repacked file via the Firefox Add-on Manager

I've only tested this fix on Firefox 43.0.4, but I would expect the fix to work on other versions of Firefox.

Easy Access

V1.1.7 not compatible with Firefox 44.0.2 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Simple and easy to use and is a real time saver for me.

I primarily use it to launch websites and addons that can only be accessed via FF's Add-ons Manager (e.g. about:addons-memory, ecleaner and Places Maintenance)

I feature I would like to see added is the ability to re-order the items configured in the customized section of Quicklaunch. At present the only way to re-order the items is manually edit its associated .sqlite database

On FF 44.0.2 the menu items configured in customised section are not listed when one clicks on the Easy Access button.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.7).
