Close'n forget

Very simple add-on that closes the current tab and make Firefox forget about the visit: suppressing cookies related to the current page, cleaning (beware : may be partial) the browser history and so on.

My Reviews

Grab and Drag

Very nice and usefull addon, can't live without it, but ... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Grab'n Drag is one of the first addons I add to a freshly installed Firefox. Unfortunately, since last version, G'nD is conflicting with the context menu (right click). Both with middle or left mouse button.
My configuration : Linux + Aurora 23.

I hope it will be fixed very soon.
Thanks for making Firefox even better...

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.2.3).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Add Signature

Nice work! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Simple, useful and nice add-on. But I have a problem with HTML mails using plain text signature.
I have added a few lines of code to your add-on to prevent that problem, and I will give you those lines with pleasure. Are you interested?

Copy Urls Expert

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent add-on, simple and efficient. It does what I need, and even a bit more.

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

readability

Perfect on mobile Rated 5 out of 5 stars

"Readability" is very usefull with Firefox on PC. On mobile device, it's more than that. It's a "must have" and saves our eyes.

Context Search

Simple and indispensable Rated 5 out of 5 stars

One of the first extensions that I install on a new Firefox profile.
Please make it work with Firefox 4 ...

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.5). 

HideTab

Excellent Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Excellent addon : simple and quite efficient. But I'd like to use it with Firefox 4.0 and would love to see it well integrated with the new feature called "Panorama" (tabs management).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5). 

Multiproxy Switch

Simple and efficient Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This add-on is very nice and I like it when it's simple and efficient like that.
BUT, is it possible to make it compatible with Firefox 3.6 ? I have forced the compatibility with my own Firefox, and it works like a charm.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.32). 

Readability

Great and very valuable Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I like very much this add-on, and it saves my time each day. But it definiltely lacks a way to store my preferred values for Style/Size/Margin. I guess that it is not so hard to had, is it ?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5). 

Grab and Drag

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on rocks and I can't do without it. As the mouse is very often used for browsing, the features added are a great improvement.

As I don't use Flick gesture & Momentum scrolling, I think that a "light" version without those features (so more small and even simple to understand/configure) may be interesting.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.7.4). 

Tempomail

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Tempomail does only one thing and does it very, very well.
But two remarks :
- I would like to be able to choose in a list of my personal mail addresses
- I would REALLY like to use it with my freshly installed Firefox 3. Because I can't live without Tempomail, now !

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.6).
