Save Images

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Wow, this addon is exactly what I was looking for. And I love all the options that make it incredibly customizable. Thank you!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.0). 

Status-4-Evar

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great addon! I second the need for an import/export feature so that I can transfer my fairly extensive customizations to other PCs. I have also noticed the white line on the top border of the status bar, which is more evident with a darker theme like NASA Night Launch.

Tab Mix Plus

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

For me, it's simply the most important and feature filled addon for Firefox. For those of you looking for Firefox 4 compatibility, you can download the developers build from here but keep in mind that it is in beta so you may encounter bugs: http://tmp.garyr.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=10888

SmartSearch

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Man, I love this addon! I can't tell you how much time this saves me.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.16). 

Status-4-Evar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Fantastic! Restores functionality that was quite unwisely removed in Firefox 4. I agree that if possible, adding the security icon for secure sites would be terrific (another important feature that is gone in Firefox 4).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2011.01.17.02.3). 

FireGestures

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

One of the first addons I install in new Firefox installations.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.6.1). 

Adblock Plus

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A must-have

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.3). 

Download Statusbar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I wouldn't use Firefox without it. As many, many others have stated, this functionality needs to be added to the default Firefox build.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.7.2). 

Easy DragToGo+

Thank You! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I just upgraded to Firefox 4 yesterday and I was incredibly disappointed to find that Easy DragToGo did not work in FF4. I never realized just how much I have come to rely on it. It makes the browsing experience flow much more smoothly. And then I found this beta that works on FF4. Thanks so much for the terrific addon and for the update for Firefox 4! You made my day!

Kodak Zoom

Pop-up box is Maddening Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I agree with other reviewers. The pop-up box that displays when zooming an image, and that sits smack in the middle of an image when you move the mouse off of a zoomed image, is maddening. The purpose of this add-on is to enhance the viewing of images so placing a pop-up box onto the image, thus obscuring the image, seems to defeat the purpose of the add-on. I understand that Kodak wants to get its brand name out there but there has to be a better way of doing that without obscuring the image itself.

Goodbye Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I hate to admit it too but the changes in RIL make it unworkable for me now. The author stated that the main reason for the major overhaul was the syncing conflicts with Xmarks. I never used RIL sync and never planned to use it because the RIL bookmarks used to be stored in with my regular Firefox bookmarks and synced via Xmarks. That's the way I liked it. I don't want or need yet another another addon syncing data to the web. The ONE and only feature I had been wanting to see in RIL was to have the ability to resize the drop down window after clicking the RIL icon since the displayed window is so tiny. Seems like a very basic tweak to me. (I know I could display items in the sidebar but I use my sidebar for other things using All-in-One Sidebar). From now on, I will keep the Read It Later bookmark folder in FF and just manually add and delete items directly to/from that folder. RIL is now more bother than it is worth. Goodbye RIL.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.3).
