My Reviews

URL Flipper

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

GREAT!
However there seems to be one problem. Both the + and - buttons get removed from the toolbar when I copy the localstore.rdf file to other profiles. The reset button always remains in place. The extensions many good points far outweigh this minor inconvenience.

IDM CC

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

UPDATE: I found I was not able to download flash videos the same way as I could before. I am able to download other file types as I did previously.

IDM CC

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks for your link sYsTeM-[5]

"Link : http://www.easy-share.com/1916257075/IDM_6.06.8_(firefox_5_OK).rar"
I also downloaded "IDM CC 7.2.2.xpi "
from here: "http://www.mediafire.com/?fwifajica38x779" I tried to modify the install.rdf
to be compatible with FF 6 but it would not install
with the modified rdf file. I got a corrupt file warning. This version has a max of FF 4.2. I installed the unmodified xpi file and it accepted it because I have "extensions.checkCompatibility.6.0;false", and "extensions.checkCompatibility.6.0a;false", and "extensions.checkCompatibility.6.0b;false" added to my about:config (prefs.js) file. Just do a google search for "extensions.checkCompatibility.6.0;false" for directions. Well my IDM works fine with FF 6 now. The xpi from media fire was clean and I have had no problems.

Show Profile

GREAT ADD-ON! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is great! You should put "titlebar" somewhere in the description or tags. I searched for a replacement for "titlebar tweaks" that would put my profile name in the titlebar but found none for FF 5.0 and above. I just happened to "stumble" upon this addon. I edited the install.rdf (google it to find out how) to change the line "<em:maxVersion>4.0.*</em:maxVersion>" to "<em:maxVersion>6.0.*</em:maxVersion>" and it works great. I am writing this using FF 6. So far I have found nothing broken and no interference with my other addons. A feature I really like is it determines the profile name automatically. This allows me to copy my profile prefs.js file to other profiles without having to modify it for each profile to show the correct profile name. GREAT JOB! Thanks.

Toolbar Buttons

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

If you don't like Mike's button icons replace them with ones you do like.
1. Open the .xpi file with WinRAR.
2. Open the chrome folder displayed in the WinRAR window.
3. Double click the tbutton.jar file.
4. Open the skin folder
5. Drag the 24 and 16 folders out of the WinRar window and drop them where ever you desire.
6. Open the button.png file inside the 16 and 24 folders using an image editor (one supporting png files). Increase the zoom so you can easily identify the icons in the horizontal strip.
7. Find the icons you don't like and either modify them or replace them with other images you copied using the editor. NOTE: Be sure the replacement image is in the same spot on the horizontal strip as the original.
8. When finished save the file back to . Just chose Save File in the file menu of your image editor.
Note: The file must be saved as a png file named button.png to the folder it was in. Either the 16 or 24 folder.
9. Now once again, open the .xpi file with WinRAR.
10. Open the chrome folder displayed in the WinRAR window.
11. Double click the tbutton.jar file.
12. Open the skin folder
13. Now drag the 16 and 24 folder contaiing the edited button.png files and drop them on the WinRar window displaying the original 16 qnd 24 folders in the skin folder.
14. When prompted by WinRAR select OK "Add and replace files"
15. Exit WinRAR and you are done.

Use the modified xpi file and install Toolbar Buttons with your custom button icons.
Either modify the buttons icons you don't like or stop the darn whining about the icons.
I can easily modify a button's icon in less time than it took me to type this.
Thanks Mike for all the time and effort you put in to give us these great buttons.
Offer the complainers some cheese to go with their whine.

GoogleEnhancer

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

NOTE: Update to my previous post here. I found if I use "http://www.google.com/webhp?client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&channel=s&complete=0&hl=en&source=hp&btnG=Google+Search" for my home page address instead of "google.com" this addon works fine. In both FF 4.0 and FF 3.6.15 I am able to paste text into the search field. It gets 5 stars now! BTW the option to go to the next page when the mouse pointer is on the bottom of the window is great. I wish there was an addon for that function.

GoogleEnhancer

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I have Google.com set as my home page. With this extension enabled whenever I paste text into the search field it disappears about a second later. Does the same in both FF 4.0 and FF 3.6.15. As I understand it this extension is designed to be used with FF built in Google search which is probably the reason. If it didn't interfere with my home page text pasting it would be great.

Menu Editor

Now It Works Great With My FF 4.0rc1 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I installed Menu Editor 1.2.7 from this site:"http://menueditor.mozdev.org/" The actual download (install) link on that page is this:"http://downloads.mozdev.org/menueditor/menuedit1_2_7.xpi"It works beautifully with my FF 4.0rc1 build! My old menuedit.rdf file works with this version so I have basically the same customized menus as I did with FF 3.6.14. My previous version of Menu Editor failed with FF 4.0rc1 even though it was version 1.2.7 as well. The version available at the link I posted above must be different than the one from this page. Even though both are 1.2.7. I am going to make a donation to the developer because I am grateful he spent the time to fix it.
NOTE: To use my menuedit.rdf from my FF 3.6 version I had to:
1. First save the menuedit.rdf file someplace other than my profile folder.
2. Uninstall the Menu Editor Add-on.
3. Delete the menuedit.rdf file in my profile folder (keeping the file I saved elsewhere)
4. Updated to FF 4.0rc1
5. Installed the new Menu Editor 1.2.7
6. Deleted the new menuedit.rdf file in my profile folder
7. Copied my old saved menuedit.rdf file to my profile folder.

This is the method that worked for me.

Redirect Cleaner

Works Well and Fast! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This works great for me with FF 3.6.8 Pigfoot P3 build. I was using No redirect but it stopped working a while ago. This seems much faster!

Favicon Picker 3

Toolbar Button to toggle Favicon 3 options Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I really love this add-on. What would make it even better for me is a toolbar button which toggles both of these preferences in about:config "browser.chrome.favicons" and the "browser.chrome.site_icons" I have tried making a Custom Toolbar Button to do this but failed

External Application Buttons mod for Firefox 3.0+

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Disregard my question about more than one button, I found out just right click on the ext. app. button and chose New Button. Great Extension!

External Application Buttons mod for Firefox 3.0+

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great Extension! Is there a way to add more than one External App Button?

CL Pics

Great Addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a fantastic addon. It works perfectly with FF 3.6. Saves a heck of a lot of time! When the mouse cursor hovers over a thumbnail, the image is automatically zoomed in. Bravo!
