Google Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Firefox has to contact chart.googleapis.com for this to work. Maybe Google gets the URI of the page in some way.

Image Tools

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very useful. However, checkerboard background for transparency is bad for the images where transparency matters (think a video game sprite, where the background for the character is 100% transparency); it must be easily toggleable.

AutoGroup

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Наверное, надо вдумчиво выбирать, что группировать автоматически. Многое группировать неудобно, а с тем, что добавил, всё равно создаёт некоторые сложности (но пользы больше).

У меня есть редкая проблема, в которой я с января подозреваю это расширение: иногда какая‐нибудь группа разваливается на отдельные вкладки. Получается что‐то вроде этого: https://mediagoblin.com/u/aleksej/m/a-pile-of-one-tab-groups-in-firefox/ (это было 22 января, всего было 140 вкладок).

Сегодня открыл в группе 120-160 вкладок из папки закладок, обработал их с помощью программы, отправляющей нажатия клавиш, и обнаружил, что стопка вкладок есть, а группы нет! https://mediagoblin.com/u/aleksej/m/a-tab-stack-without-a-tab-group-in-firefox-panorama/ После перезапуска получилась стопка маленьких (1‐2 вкладки) групп в углу, как на первой картинке.


Apparently the choice of what to group requires good consideration. Many things are not something I'd group, because I may want to read them with other things in the same group; and even with what I chose to group, it's pretty confusing (though more useful than confusing).

I have a rare problem, and I suspect this extension of causing it since January: sometimes a group would fall apart into separate tabs, resulting in something like this: https://mediagoblin.com/u/aleksej/m/a-pile-of-one-tab-groups-in-firefox/ (that was on Jan 22, in total 140 tabs were open after that).

Today I've opened a group with 120-160 tabs from a bookmarks folder, processed them with a key-pressing program (I know there is a better way, but that’s not really related to the issue), and found that the tabs are a stack but not a group! https://mediagoblin.com/u/aleksej/m/a-tab-stack-without-a-tab-group-in-firefox-panorama/ After a restart, there was a stack of small (1‐2 tabs) groups in an angle, like at the first picture.

Update 2012-10-02:
Группы не разваливались с тех пор как я перестал пользоваться этим расширением.
Groups haven’t fallen apart since I stopped using this extension.

It’s great. Note that the keyboard shortcuts are not obvious, you should look at the “Keyboard shortcuts” pane in the settings dialog.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.4). 

Ctrl-Tab

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

IIRC, I installed this first when it just appeared (not knowing if it was good, but to try what was planned for the next version of Firefox), and I am still using it.

Without it, I would have to press Ctrl+Shift+Tab all the time. That said, I now forget about the very useful Ctrl+Shift+Tab feature of this add-on, and use Panorama instead sometimes.

RequestPolicy

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very good, but an important thing is missing - wildcard or regexp support, so you can use the full address mode for unfamiliar sites or untrusted subdomains, but don't have to add many permissions for trusted sites and subdomains. Blocking an untrusted subdomain might require a blacklist though.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.13). 

Taboo

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very useful, but not very intuitive (page position) and usable (previews).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.1). 

Tree Style Tab

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I cannot stop using it once I've installed it, but it is buggy: the list scrolls incorrectly after removing a tab if the list didn't fit in the screen.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.2008062001). 

Show Keywords

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works for bookmark keywords, but not for search engine keywords. :(
But that’s probably a good thing.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2). 

StyleSheet Chooser Plus

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The extension implements https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=427997 pretty well.

Not sure if the sign in the icons is not too small, but that (and probably switching to SVG icons) would be more like an enhancement request. :-)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.0).
