Fox Splitter (formerly Split Browser)

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Great idea, but it breaks the address bar something awful. Whenever the "AwesomeBar" drop-down vanishes, the right-edge split button appears and steals focus.

When I was typing Split Browser to re-locate this page, I got "Split Bro" and then had to reach for my mouse.

It also interfered with my global keybindings somehow, so when I reached for F12 to open my Yakuake terminal, nothing happened. I didn't even think that was possible with Yakuake!

I'll rate it 5 stars when there's a way to completely disable those auto-hiding split buttons so I can just use the context menu for splitting.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.2008061601). 

Link Widgets

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Excellent extension, but for some reason, unlike all my other toolbar buttons, these distort when I use userChrome.css to force the toolbars smaller.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.6).

One star for supporting an explicit violation of the PNG specification.

(PNG was designed with the knowledge of how much trouble it was to detect whether a GIF was animated. APNG ignores that and also ignores the parts of the PNG spec that basically say "A PNG contains a single frame. Multi-frame PNGs are to be considered broken."

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4). 

Snap Links

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very useful, but the inability to use either button 4 or 5 on my mouse is a big problem since Firefox tends to have latency issues.

I grow weary of having to close half a dozen unwanted tabs because a latency spike turned a click into a drag.
