Horizontal Scroll

Solves 15 year old bug Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This behavior has annoyed me since a really long time ago, and it happens to be reported as a Firefox bug since... 2001! (Bug 71464 - Using the scrollwheel above the horizontal scrollbar should scroll horizontal, not vertical)

Thank you very much for finally fixing this issue after all these years. The addon works perfectly and without requiring restart.

Tab Wheel Scroll

Does exactly what it says Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Does exactly what it says; nothing more, nothing less.
The default scrolling direction is reversed; other implementations of scrollable tabs such as Gnome's tab widget do it the other way around. Can be changed though (but I think the default should be reversed; it's a bit counter-intuitive).

The problem is that now that the scroll wheel is for changing the tab I've lost the possibility of scrolling the tabs when there are too many; I have to use the < > buttons on the sides of the tab bar. Maybe a way to get this feature back could be considered, such as hovering the sides for auto-scrolling rather than having to click, but that might overcomplicate the addon.

No Close Buttons

Simple solution to a little annoyance Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Well, so I fixed this unjustified design decision with a single click (no restart nor enabling required; just click "install addon" and the buttons were gone). I would have preferred that the option never went away though.

Works as advertised Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Since the old CacheViewer doesn't support newer Firefox versions and CacheViewer Continued was discontinued, it's great that someone has developed this extension.
Works like a charm (although the startup is a bit slow, but I guess that's normal)

Movable Firefox Button

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Perfect for being able to auto-hide the tab bar when there's only a single tab without losing the Firefox button.

However, this icon doesn't show whether I'm in private browsing or not. It would be nice if the icon changed when I'm in private browsing. Also, modern versions of Firefox display a mask icon next to the Firefox button when in private browsing, which this addon should override.

Maybe the Firefox icon this addon displays should be replaced with a rectangle saying [Firefox] just like native Firefox does (with or without a mask icon), so that Firefox with this addon looks exactly like without it unless you move the icon. (maybe as an option?)

Bug solved. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

New Firefox versions have Ctrl-Shift-K which replaces the javascript: scheme. However this for some reason didn't work for me and made Firefox crash all the time. So thanks for bringing me my javascript: back.

PS: I knew about this addon just about a minute after figuring out how to solve this issue with a bookmarklet:

Movable Firefox Button

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Perfect. This should be the default behavior of this button. Thanks to this addon I can set the tab bar to auto-hide when there's only 1 tab and have a minimal amount of space wasted on toolbars.


Needs work Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This could be a pretty useful addon for preventing User Agent-based tracking, however for this to be effective it should probably change the UA automatically each time a page is loaded.
Also, I think it would be important to keep the browser name and version, just in case a page is optimized to work with a certain browser. This option may be configurable so that a totally random UA can be achieved if the user wants so.
Another thing that could be done is randomizing any of the parameters on not only the UA.

Oh, and maybe some sort of integration with the UserAgent Switcher addon would be nice.

Argh, worst month of my life. Thanks for the new release.

Would it be possible to show double translation? So, for example, if you right-click "liar" and have "es>en" selected, you'd see: "es>en: tie | en>es: mentiroso | Open dictionary | etc..."
Also, when selecting "Change language", each language submenu should have the translation from that language on top of it.
Oh, and I think that clicking a translation on a text field should directly replace the text with the translation, without having an extra option for that.

Java Console 6.0.02

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Is it possible that this doesn't work because the later Java version is 1.6.0_14?
Would it be possible to make a version-independent Java Console? (I guess it's not that easy, otherwise it would already be done)

Duplicate Tab

Use wyciwyg or DOM instead of URL Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This plugin should use wyciwyg:// or copy the DOM instead of reloading the page
