In a little more detail...

I believe the web user should always be in control.

I am interested in the web and user rights on line, and support Firefox and Mozilla as they have always been at the forefront of a free web.

Tree Style Tab

Bug# Link Target incorrectly displays Bottom Right. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Had to revert back to the old version as this was driving me mad.
Is there a fix?

Greasemonkey

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works with FF4.0b12pre so that's good :-)
Was able to just copy all my 3.6 scripts over to my 4.0 profile.
The new scripts show in Add-ons under User Scripts.

The ability to easily add www.example.com* from the manager has been lost though :-(

Its going to be a pain so I will keep FF3.6 around so I can create the script from Platypus and save in the old Greasemonkey. Then I can use the old manager to update includes.

I may just provide a link to my FF3.6 profile actually hmm will have to investigate if that will work correctly under Ubuntu.
Anyway nasty workaround or not this was one of the last "must have" add-ons that were stopping me moving to FF4.0 full-time. so worth the aggravation ;-)

Deducted 1 star as the Manager needs improving.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.1).

Master Password

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks to Matt and Vivien you ppl are stars.

All working fine on initial testing so far.

Note re Firefox Start:

If I tap the greyed out "Tabs from your other computers" I should be asked for
my Master Password.

Workaround go to site that need a pw.

Cheers and thanks for the fix :-)

Places’ Full Titles

Great fix by Bas! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Re: BookMarkToolbar fix for FF4.0b8
Inside your Firefox profile, navigate to extensions\{7bf7c1c3-d8e7-4020-ab38-a829c76693d5}\chrome\placesfulltitles\skin and open placesfulltitles.css in a text editor. Do a find-and-replace: replace all instances of
bookmarksBarContent
with
PlacesToolbar
and then close the file and restart Firefox.

Firefox Sync for Firefox 3.5/3.6

Error While Syncing and Wrong Sync Key error Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The latest FF4b8pre updates your back end sync data (held on Mozilla servers).
The problem is that any FF3.6 machines still on 1.5.1 cant read the new format yet.
So you wont be able to sync with your FF3.6 machines until they release an update.
https://services.mozilla.com/sync/updated/?version=1.5&channel=dev
then you may receive a Wrong Sync Key error.
See here to fix it http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=10225769&postcount=263
