Tab Groups

Excellent Addon With Just A Few Teething Issues Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Don't let the title fool you; this is an excellent addon, and I say teething issues as it's only been around less than a month at the time of this review.

As it currently stands, tabs from previous sessions restored using Session Manager (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/session-manager/) restored correctly (and more cleanly) and it funtions in much the same way as the previous, Mozilla supported feature.

Now the teething issues. I regularly clear my internet history when I close Firefox, so saving Tab Groups by default isn't really an issue for me; I mostly restore them using Session Manager. However, the yellow bar notifiying every time that they will be cleared I think will getting annoying after a while, so I'd like to see the option to disable it made available in the addons preferences/settings. Additionally, there is s slight issue with the appearance of the Tab Groups button when using it in conjunction with the TabGroups Menu addon (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/tabgroups-menu/) but that may be a compatability problem on their end. All in all though, no significant complaints and nothing I'll lose any sleep over.

Otherwise, a fantastic addition to the Firefox addon collection and long may it continue for this "little used" feature.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.1). 


Update for Firefox 5.* Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hey guys

As you may have noticed, TimeTracker once again no longer works in FF5. However, here's a quick guid to fix it:
(Note: If you have already downloaded the *.xpi, skip to step 2)

1. If still available download the TimeTracker installer from "http://hotfile.com/dl/112924019/b83f225/timetracker-1.2.5-fx4.0.xpi.html" (Thanks to Kenoubi)

2. Change the file extension from "*.xpi" to "*.zip"

3. Extract the "install.rdf" file

4. Edit the line "<em:maxVersion>4.0.*</em:maxVersion>" to read "<em:maxVersion>5.*</em:maxVersion>"

5. Import the "install.rdf" back into the zip file

6. Change the file extension back to "*.xpi" (Note: make sure there is only 1 install.rdf file in the root directory of the zip before changing the extension)

7. Run the "*.xpi" and it should be working agin

Any problems, let me know and I'll try to figure what gone wrong
