Thumbnail Zoom Plus

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

For some reason, this extension includes a (long since fixed) bug I reported last year in the original Thumbnail Zoom -- the zoom panel doesn't respect the user's page zoom setting. I browse at 200% zoom on my TV using "NoSquint", and because Thumbnail Zoom Plus displays images 1:1, they often appear smaller than the original thumbnail. When this issue is resolved, I'll gladly upgrade my rating to five stars!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5.8.1-signed). 

HTML Desktop Notifications

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Just what I was looking for, but with one major caveat -- your add-on doesn't support onclick handlers, which, while technically not part of the specification, are available for use in Chrome (and are required by my application). Resolve this, and I'll gladly upgrade my rating to five stars.

Two other issues I found: "Notifications" is misspelled in the title of the settings dialog, and the permissions box doesn't stretch vertically when the window is resized.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.3.1-signed.1-signed). 

Is It Compatible?

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Not a huge fan of the new location of the compatibility data, but I'm going to assume it was changed to accommodate future versions of Firefox. In any case, add-on now works once again as expected; therefore, five stars for you, sir.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.1.1-signed.1-signed).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Is It Compatible?

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This add-on, while technically "compatible" with the versions in question (in the sense that it still does what it says on the tin), causes Firefox to freeze for several seconds when the Add-ons Manager is opened in v6 and above. I'll gladly upgrade my rating to five stars when this is resolved.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.20110114.1-signed.1-signed). 

Favicon Picker 2

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Because BobDawg ("author" of Favicon Picker 2) is stealing (and PROFITING from) finny08's work, we'll NEVER see a Favicon Picker 4 unless someone else picks up the torch. To continue requesting it here is pointless, folks. For a complete rundown of the situation, see here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/favicon-picker-3/developers

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6.1.14).

Thumbnail Zoom

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great concept, does what it says on the tin, author is responsive to end-user concerns. A+

Thumbnail Zoom

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great concept, with a few minor niggles: Delay should be specified in milliseconds instead of seconds (250-500ms, I think, would be ideal for me), throbber.gif has ugly white ridges that clash with darker Windows themes (http://tinyurl.com/32nd4ww), and the panel should respect the user's page zoom setting (I browse at 200% zoom on my TV using "NoSquint", and because Thumbnail Zoom displays images 1:1, they often appear smaller than the original thumbnail). When these issues are resolved, I'll gladly upgrade my rating to five stars!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3). 

Stylish-Custom OLD

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Good stuff, but the very idea that an extension is necessary to fix another extension that had most of these features in the first place is nothing short of laughable. Speak to the developer of Stylish, ChoGGi, and see if he'll merge your contributions into the main distribution; if not, consider releasing a full-fledged Stylish replacement of your own. Clearly, you have a far better understanding of what Stylish users want than he does.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.8). 

StatusbarEx

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

"Memory available" can, at times, be wildly inaccurate, which, given the narrow scope of this extension, is borderline unforgivable.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.19).
