My Reviews

Focus Regainer

Yup, works with firefox. ^^ Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I <i>just</i> found out about this through <a href="http://superuser.com/a/607514/228316">this answer on the Superuser StackExchange</a>.

I was confused by it saying it was for Seamonkey (which I've never used) rather than Firefox, but I installed it in Firefox anyway and it works!

I've tried to find a solution to this moronic bug a few times before, but always gave up in frustration, so this is pretty awesome. ^^

Btw, ctrl-esc mimic the "Windows key" in Windows, and alt-esc does... some weird variation on alt-tab? --so those particular hotkeys conflict (at least in Windows 7, which I'm on at the moment).

Anyway, ctrl-F11 and alt-F11 work as advertised, as do ctrl-T, ctrl-W, et(I assume)cetera.

Heh, now we're gonna start wanting a hotkey to put the focus back <i>on</i> Flash objects so we can eg ctrl-pgup to a Youtube tab, pause/play a video using spacebar, and then ctrl-T or ctrl-pgup/pgdown away. xD

Oh wait, ctrl-pgup/pgdown don't automatically escape from the Flash the way ctrl-T etc do...

Can we add that kind of thing to Focus Regainer's behavior ourselves through about:config, or...?

Actually, where <i>are</i> its entries under about:config? Searching for "extensions.focus" yields no results...?

Replace Bookmark

YES. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Updating bookmarks to things like the last-read-page of a webcomic was getting REALLY annoying, so this is AWESOME.

One thing that could make it even better [note this suggestion is all assuming you have "Keep the old name" checked by default].:

It would be really nice to be able to control which entry is automatically at the top of the list in the shift-alt-d "replace bookmark" window, because that entry is essentially the default (ie, you get it by just hitting enter).

If I could set it to be automatically alphabetized, I could just throw an "a" or whatever in front of the names of the bookmarks I update a LOT, and update them in just two strokes without having to think about selecting anything.


(btw, I was curious, so I played around with it a bit and discovered that the order now seems to be produced by the same mysterious process that orders bookmarks when I ctrl-shift-b to open the "library" window. I have no idea how THAT's determined, because it sure doesn't seem to be by any of the sorting options you can manually select [name, location, date added, etc].)


P.S. Add me to the list of people who agree this addon should be a default firefox feature. =D
