Custom Buttons

Can it use existing .xml button files ? ? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Is it possible to import a button that was previously created as a .xml file (from Google Toolbar for example) ? ? I have a few like that and when add on signing is mandatory, I will likely lose Google Toolbar (but I do have all the buttons I use saved on my computer)

Thanks

Classic Theme Restorer (Customize UI)

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Not bad, but the Option to get rid of Pocket does not work properly. It did set the flag in About:Config and I did the restart, but the Pocket Button is still on the Bookmarks drop down and I can not find a way to get rid of it.

FEBE

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very good addon, but is it possible to save the backup in more than one location ? If it is, how do we type it into the Save In Location ? ? If not, perhaps this simple feature can be added.

Tab Mix Plus

Still buggy closing firefox Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Firefox still crashes when using the X at top right of Firefox. Very annoying and it generates a crash report every time. It also does it when using your latest beta release of Tab Mix Plus ... Firefox 38.0.1

Webmail Ad Blocker

Good, but an ocassional glitch Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Sometimes, in Yahoo Mail, it reverts back to not blocking all the web ads. Disabling and Renabling the add on or restarting the browser (Firefox 37.0.2) usually corrects the issue. Please see why this is happening. Thanks

No idea of what may be causing it. Sometimes, just in the Inbox sorting the emails. A bit of a bother for an otherwise fine add on.

Download Manager Tweak

Bug when downloading Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Using V1.05 as it is latest for FF28 and there is an issue, but not sure if yours or Firefox .. seems if I change the File Name of a Download, it will not download it. So we have to save it as is and then rename it as we want it. It used to let us change the name as we wanted.

Webmail Ad Blocker

Mostly very good Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Not bad, but now and then in Yahoo email, it reverts to narrow style. But ads are still blocked.
When this happens, I disable and then reenable your add-on and it is back to normal. Also I can not post at the forum for bugs. Your system or web site, seems to think I am a Spammer (which is most assuredly not the case) ... Thank you

This is with Firefox 28.0 ... as of right now, not very happy with the latest look and feel of newest Firefox.

NoSquint

Need help setting exceptions Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Basically an ok add-on, but I need help in setting it up properly. I use 1024 x 768 screen resolution. I want all my websites to be at 100% zoom level. The only site I need to be set at 90% is Mail.Yahoo.com (yahoo email site)
https://us-mg6.mail.yahoo.com
For some idiotic reason, if I leave that site at 100% the characters in the Inbox (for unread mails) are a very large Bold Face Font .. totally incorrect, but what else would I expect as Yahoo has messed up the email since the last major "new and improved yahoo email"

Remove It Permanently

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works good, but I can not keep a pesky ad for IOS in Yahoo Email from appearing. I have tried all the options in RIP. The ad will go away, but comes back a little later.

Document Font Toggle

Help with settings Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Using prior version 1.2 on Firefox 28 .. not quite working as I expected. How do you add the sites ? Full url or partial, with or without wild cards ? ? I want all sites to use my Preferred Font with the sole exception being Yahoo Mail which needs to use it's own fonts to display the graphics properly. Otherwise not too bad.

Thanks for the tip. Will try that and see how it works. I tried moving the Document Font Toggle button up to the main menu bar. It went, but I am not sure if it will stay there next time I open Firefox. What is so changed in V2
that makes it only for FF29 ? Personally, those nitwits at Firefox should have put this option in the browser in the first place.

Firefox 3 theme for Firefox 4+ Reloaded!

Not quite right in FF29 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It does not look anything like it does with FF28 .. How do we fix it ? Does Classic Theme Restorer and Classic Toolbar Buttons need to be installed or should they not be in FF29 to make your previously great theme work properly in FF29 ? ? I sure hope you can get this working properly (hopefully in a few weeks or so) Keep up the great work.

It is not the Tabs on Bottom that I so concerned with as that is a simple fix. It is the look of the Buttons the way it is coded now, as compared to what it looks like in FF28
when using the same V4 of your addon.
Here is a link to a screenshot (do not worry about Google Toolbar, as I can work around that item)

Firefox 3 theme for Firefox 4+ Reloaded!

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Just updated to Firefox 28.0 yesterday and of course the browser say this theme does not work. But I reenabled it, restarted Firefox and it is working just fine in Firefox 28.0 ... hope you can do something for when Australis FF29 comes out. I and many others like the simple, clean FF03 theme.

Add-on Compatibility Reporter

Minor glitch in Firefox 28.0 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Working in Firefox 28.0 but it shows the Title in the status bar next to the little green jigsaw shaped piece. I do not see any options or any way to turn off that title. It is taking up space for no real reason.

Download Manager Tweak

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works fine in Firefox 27.0.1 and eliminates the need for other add ons, such as Download Status Bar
Only thing it needs is to add a "play a sound when download is completed option" .. otherwise it is very good.

Firefox 3 theme for Firefox 4+ Reloaded!

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Word has it that it will not work with the release of Firefox and Australis version .. I had someone who had the Beta build installed try it and it does not work correctly. Hopefully, the developer can fix it for those of us that prefer a simple, classic theme.
If not, I may not upgrade Firefox past V27

Firefox 3 theme for Firefox 4+ Reloaded!

It does work with Firefox 27 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Not sure why they say it is not for Firefox 27, but I have V27 and this version theme installed and they are doing just fine with each other.

Firefox 3 theme for Firefox 4+

Works ok in Firefox 23 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This still works just fine in Firefox 23, even though the browser thinks it does not. And I agree, this should continue to be updated.

Add-on Compatibility Reporter

Features suggesttion Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Addon compatability reporter works great, but it does not check for Themes compatability. It would be nice if it does. On my Firefox I use these 2 addon, which Firefox thinks do not work, yet they do just fine. Note: Google has stopped support for Firefox Toolbar about 1 year or so back.

Tab Mix Plus

Add Ons Manager Won't Open In Firefox 17 Rated 2 out of 5 stars

On Firefox 17, Tab Mix Plus is stopping the Firefox Add Ons Manager from opening. Only way to get it to open is to open a New Tab and then select it. Please fix this.

Add-on Compatibility Reporter

Latest version has some issues Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It was easier to use before this unneeded upgrade. And please get rid of the Green Jigsaw piece in the Add On Toolbar. If anything, it should Only Show up when an Add On is detected as Incompatible. Also I have Google Toolbar and it is working. I found and put a Check Mark next to it on your little green piece, but Add Ons Manager still shows as Not Compatible.
Get this fixed, please. Same for the Firefox 3 Theme For Firefox 4+ ... it does work, but Add Ons Manager says it will not.
