X-notifier (for Gmail,Hotmail,Yahoo,AOL ...)

fails to check at start up 2.9.11, 2.9.12 (UPDATE) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Aug 28, 2012 - I just updated to Pale Moon ver15 and Webmail now checks at startup. So it seems to work fine for me.

X-notifier (for Gmail,Hotmail,Yahoo,AOL ...)

fails to check at start up 2.9.11, 2.9.12 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

starting with 2.9.11 and also 2.9.12, does not check email at startup. Will check after a few minutes though. So, if I am opening FF just to check to see if I have any email, I must click "check now" on the pull down menu or wait 5 minutes. No big deal, but slightly irritating.

thanks Silverhawk!

1.1.9.4 works great with FF 9.01

Readability

Turn off Icon in Add-on Bar Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I like having the Readability Icon up in the Navigation or Menu Bar. I would like the option of turning off the Icon in the Add-on bar. Perhaps adding a check-box to the "options" for Icon location in the Menu-bar, Navigation-bar, Bookmark-bar, or Add-on bar. Does anyone from Readability ever read these reviews?

Readability

Need option to remove from Add-on bar Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I like using Readability. I use FF5.0 and have the icon in the navigation toolbar. I do not have the option to remove icon from add-on bar which is regrettable. I also hate the new hotdog-in-bun/couch icon - I really liked the old "R" icon, it just seemed to be more classy and easily identifiable.

Horrible new Logo in 1.3.5 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This update is just to change a logo?
I love the add-on and hate the new logo. A couch? Really. A couch?
I like the old "R" logo with the dark blue background and think it looks really sharp up in my toolbar.
I am not updating.

Firefox Sync for Firefox 3.5/3.6

Not Impressed Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This just sucks. I absolutely need sync profiles. I have too many bookmarks and do not need them on every computer, especially at work. I, too, will be sticking to Xmarks until the very end. Xmarks is smooth, set it and forget it with all the options I need. At home, I sync every time FF closes, while on other computers, I manually sync.

Sort Bookmarks Menu

GUI looks nice, but... Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Doesn't seem to do anything to my bookmarks no matter what I choose. I uninstalled it and went back to the old way.

I have looked and looked for a way to sort all my bookmarks at once and thought my search had come to an end this week. But I was mistaken.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0). 

Favicon Picker 3

How I make it work... Rated 3 out of 5 stars

To get a Favicon for a blank bookmark:

Open Internet Explorer (I'm using ver 6).
go to site with favicon and save as favorite.
close IE.
Open FavOrg.
Find bookmark and save favicon to user folder.
Close FavOrg.
Open FF3 and find bookmark I want to change favicon.
righclick, properties, click "browse...".
go to FavOrg user folder and click on favicon I just saved with IE.
click "Save Changes".
Done.

Is there an easier way?

Edit:

Thanks! I did not know how this add-on worked. It looked like I had to pick from my local drive. Your instructions worked great, infact I grabbed a small image from a webpage and it went right into the FF3 favicon in the bookmark! Wow!

Bookmark Sync and Sort

FF3: Sort All Sub-Folders Rated 3 out of 5 stars

In Firefox 3:
I have a sh*tload of unsorted bookmark folders. I have to left click (select), then right click (sort by name) for every stinking one. Is there any add-ons anywhere, or config tweaks that will sort all folders at once and then allow all bookmarks to stay sorted in alphabetical order all the time? Thanks!

Bookmarks LinkChecker

I need you more than ever!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

AM-Deadlink doesn't work with FF3 either. -- FF has a horrible UI for managing bookmarks if you have a zillion of them and just imported from another browser and need to clean them up. Man, I really need this for FF3!
