My Reviews

Pocket

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great addon! I have a few requests.
1. Can you change the toolbar button to not have the drop down arrow? it seems unneeded, and pocket's button is much larger than my other toolbar buttons.
2. Is there a way to have the firefox address bar search pocket page's titles as well as bookmarks and history?
3. Can you put a an option to toggle what happens when you click the red pocket icon in the address bar on an already saved page. Currently it marks the page as read. I would like for it to delete the page from pocket instead.

Menu Filter

Tab Context Menu doesn't work? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Other than tab context menu not showing any items to show or hide; I would also like to echo people's request that you add the ability to re-order items to our liking. Thanks.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4). 

Classic Theme Restorer (Customize Australis)

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Custom Theme Restorer's 'add star back to urlbar' option doesn't seem to work correctly. The star appears, but it doesn't seem to do anything when clicked. The star doesn't turn yellow to indicate a new bookmark has been made, although one does get created. Also if I reload the page, or navigate to a different bookmarked page, the star does not show yellow to indicate that I have opened an already-bookmarked webpage.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.4). 

TitleURL

space between pinned and non-pinned tabs Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Can you make the ability to put a space between pinned tabs and normal tabs into a separate addon, please?

Clean Links

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

"It needs to be the domain for the link being cleared, not the domain where the link can be found."

When the "domains for the link being created" are literally different online video players which do not work, such as South Park Studios and GameTrailers, how can I whitelist them? Or can you build-in the functionality so that we can choose to have video players working whilst CleanLinks is enabled?

Clean Links

Skip Domains doesn't seem to work? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

added "southparkstudios.com" followed by a comma to the skip domains input field, but it doesn't seem to work even after reloading the page and restarting firefox. am I doing it right? should i be including 'http://', 'www.', or '/*' after the .com?

southparkstudios.com doesn't play episodes when clean links is enabled. Currently I have the button on the toolbar and use it to toggle clean links on and off for specific sites, it would be easier to skip domains.

Clean Links

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works for cleaning redirect links, browsing the web is now much easier.

Can I request the ability to whitelist certain sites though?

Feed Sidebar

Optional additional icon? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Is there any way you could add in an optional set of toolbar icons which falls inline with firefox 4's grey/white icons?

BookmarkMenuHider

Very Nice, More features request Rated 5 out of 5 stars

On the 'menu bar' options tab, can you add an option to toggle 'view bookmark menu' like you have on the 'toolbar button' options tab? I know that may sound odd, but I hide firefox's default menu toolbar, and use the Personal Menu addon's bookmark menu button with a drop-down marker, because I don't like how the default firefox bookmarks toolbar button has the word in text and no drop-down marker.

Also, FireFox Sync creates a folder called Mobile Bookmarks when syncing with a mobile phone. I would like for that folder to show up on the boomarks menu bar options tab (and thus personal menu's bookmarks drop-down button), as a pop-out menu: http://img818.imageshack.us/img818/9573/fdqw.png

Would these two features be possible?

Addons in Urlbar

Autohide toggle? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

"- To use this addon without autohide feature, please try "url-addon-bar" "

url-addon-bar no longer seems to work. Please could you make the autohide feature of this addon into an optional toggle so that I might use this addon without the autohide?

TitleURL

Agree with another reviewer. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Rated a "5/5" based on the developer's reply to a previous reviewer which indicated he would address the two issues/concerns that said reviewer and I share. When this future updated version of this addon is released it will be truly worthy of a 5/5 review. Awesome addon!"I really, really like this add-on, and I would prefer it over the "Page Title" add-on, except that there are two things I do not like. One is a bug, and the other is a personal preference: 1) After I click "Customize" in the toolbar, the page titles fail to appear in the url bar--instead, it leaves the url bar blank; 2) I do not like the change in font when selecting the URL--is there a way to allow the user to choose the font?"

Even though I think this is a thunderbird addon, it worked for me in FireFox where Enabling 'Nightly Tester Tools' and disabling 'Addon Compatibility Checker' addons failed.

Strata40

Very Nice, Only Two Problems Rated 4 out of 5 stars

So far I really like this. My only two concerns are:

1) Appearance: Finding toolbar buttons to replace the extra buttons I have. Could you design toolbar buttons for: "Add-Ons, RSS Feeds, Undo Close Tab" which match your utton-style you have for Bookmarks and History? If not, could you show me how to create them for myself?

2) Usability: As someone with a visual impairment, could you add an option in future releases where we can pick to always have the 'close tab' icon showing, rather than just when you mouse-over the tab?

Thanks in advance.
