Vertical Toolbar

Makes best use of available space on wide monitors Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Makes best use of available space on wide monitors. Works great. One of my favorite add-ons.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.7).  This user has 3 previous reviews of this add-on.

Dictionary Switcher

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This tool was working well, and I like it, but when I installed it on a new computer, it no longer displays the current language at the bottom.
Windows 7 64 bit, all updates, Firefox 6.0.2.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.1). 

Vertical Toolbar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I consider Vertical Toolbar such a huge improvement, I'm delaying updating to FF 6 until Vertical Toolbar supports it.

Vertical Toolbar

Very nice. Very convenient. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very nice! Convenience of instant access to buttons without taking valuable space at the top and bottom of the screen. Also holds addon buttons like LastPass and ABP.

(Geoff: There an "automatically hide" function, but it only works in full screen mode. For me, that is the only time I need it. Your needs may be different.)

WindowShopper - Discover Visually

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I had a problem when this product mysteriously appeared in FF without my permission and did not appear in Tools; Add-ons; Extensions, so I could not uninstall it.

I was very upset, but by disabling my other add-ons/extensions one-by-one, and checking to see if WindowShopper was still active, I determined that it was installed by IE Tab Plus. (Mozilla does allow extensions to be packaged together, but the hidden nature was a problem for me.)

Using FF; Tools; Add-ons; Extensions; and uninstalling IE Tab Plus removed WindowShopper just fine.

I'm in Canada and most internet shopping sites will not ship here.

WindowShopper would only be useful to me if it had an option to show only those shopping sites that ship to my country.

Date Picker/Calendar

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very nice.

There a few bugs that affect options some people might want. %k and %l only work in the calendar pop-up, not in the FF Status Bar (but then the time appears in Windows Task Bar just below anyways).

Wish list:
Week numbers in the calendar.

Statusbar Date()

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm very happy with Taskbar Date, and it will show day of the week in either long or short form. Just right click on it and the options will appear with full instructions. I have the position set to 17 (a high number) and the format options set to:%D %M %d (%h:%i %A JDY %J) This gives me "Sat Sep 25" in the lower right corner of my Firefox window, just above the Windows clock.A middle click would give me the time and Julian date. Wish List: (a) Option to make hover act like middle click. (b) Option for a simple calendar to appear on hover. (c) Option for ISO and USA week numbers. (d) Make right-click cycle through normal, expanded, and icon only formats.

Forecastfox Weather

Forecast Fox is my favorite Firefox add in Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Next to the spelling dictionaries, Forecast Fox is my favorite Firefox add in. I've used it for years now. I highly recommend it.

(And yes it would be great to have the additional data back, either fully customized, or as a single option for full forecast, and they are working on giving us back at least some of it. Post feature requests here: http://forecastfox.uservoice.com/forums/36457-general )

Forecastfox Weather

My favorite FF add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Forecast Fox is a great add-on that I've been using several times a day for a couple of years now. I highly recommend it.

IE Tab

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you for taking over the maintenance of IE Tab yuoo2k !!!

It is a very valuable add-on and works great.

Is there a way to zoom in the IE tabs?

IE tabs won't zoom with either cntl+mouseWheel or cntl++ or cntl+-.

I've got IE Tab 1.5.20090525, FF 3.5.3 and MSIE 8.0.6001.18702, running on Windows XP SP3.

Anyone can answer.

IE View

I've been using it for a couple of years. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

IE View works well. I've been using it for a couple of years.

However, I wish it had an option to open links in a new tab, instead of a new window.

I'm using version 1.4.4 of IE View with Firefox 3.5.3 and MSIE 8.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4.4). 

Forecastfox Weather

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Forecastfox is working great for me with Firefox 3.5.3 with Windows XP SP3.

It has been working great for me for a couple of years now.

Someone mentioned they'd like the forecasts to be more accurate.

Ensolis, please correct me if I'm wrong. What forecastfox does is get the forecast and current conditions from Accuweather and displays them conveniently. Accuracy is totally dependent on Accuweather.

Forecastfox Weather

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

How about doing a simple Forecast application for Facebook? A box we can put on our profile pages to show the weather where we are?

I love Forecastfox for Firefox.

I use this line for my current conditions tooltip:
[t].[nl]Feels Like Temp: [flik+short], Real Temp: [tmp+short][nl]Humid:[hmid].[nl]Wind: [windt] at [winds+kmh] gusts to [windgust+kmh].[nl]Precip: [precip+mm], BarPrs: [bard].[nl]UV: [uvt], Sun Rise: [sunr], Sun Set: [suns].[nl]Moon: [moont], Moon Rise: [moonr], Moon Set: [moons].[nl][dnam].

I use this line for the forecast tooltips:
[tlong].[nl]Hi FL Temp: [rlfeelhi+short] Low FL Temp: [rlfeellow+short].[nl]Hi R Temp: [hi+short] Low R Temp: [low].[nl]Prbty of Thunder Storm: [tstorm].[nl]Wind:[windt] at [winds+kmh] gusts to [windgust+kmh].[nl]Precip: [precip+mm].[nl][dnam].
