Could you please update the theme to the beta v4.7.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.0.0). 

Pimpoflage - Auto Hide Options for Status Bar and Navigation Bar

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I would like to hide my bookmarks, toomanytabs and file/edit/view/etc toolbars. I want to show only the navigation one.
Could you add an option to hide certain toolbars?

Also I have the glitch thing stated. Is there any way for you to add in a feature for calculating the sizes? I do know how to do it manually.

It's a good addon. When using it, I can also use KDE(linux desktop) and can remove the windows boarders. my firefox looks like it's in fullscreen, but acts like a windowed program. It's great.

Not sure if I will stick to it because I use the navigation bar so often and would really like only it showing.

Thank you.

Tree Style Tab

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

@KFM
600+ tabs is ALOT. I have only had at most 200.
Heres some things that could help.

Use profiles This:
It's best if you did this right now to get a firefox with no tabs and still have a version with tabs.
Try splitting firefox into different profiles. I have 2 profiles. One for my browsing and one called my "Firefox Lite" which is only allowed a few tabs open. This way I have a browser that will load quickly.
Read this guide
http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_Manager
Here's my icon for firefox "Lite"

Backup Tabs:
A way to backup your tabs is to install "Multiple tab handler" addon. Click on your first tab. Go all the way down to your last tab. Hold down the "Shift" key and click on the last tab. all your tabs should be highlighted. Right click and choose "Bookmark selected tabs to new folder."

TooManyTabs - addon
Gives you a bar like the quick bookmark bar, but it has several rows and you only see 1 at a time.
The bookmarks get deleted when you click on them and they then become tabs. When you bookmark the tab it will be closed. This sounds a bit like what you want.
You have to bookmark each page at a time.
OR, you could send all bookmarks to a new folder(Read Backup Tabs, above this) and then move the bookmarks to the "unsorted bookmarks > TooManyTabs"

Sort bookmarks by name:
I just organized my bookmarks and got them down from 380 to about 230. Some things were bookmarked twice, so go into "organize bookmarks" and right click on a folder and choose "sort by name".

Xmarks - addon:
use xmarks to synchronize your bookmarks between profiles. I found it really helpful with profiles as I can keep the same bookmarks and the profiles act the same way, so I don't loose much when choosing my "Lite" firefox.

Finally:
Close tabs that you don't need. Sounds obvious, but I keep tabs open that I don't need and some that I think I need. I have sorted out my tabs and now only have about 40 out of 160 open{spread out over the 2 profiles.}.

I know that you will be clinging on to some tabs, but if you doubt that you will ever use them, bookmark(and delete if never used) or just close.
You are probably a procrastinator. Someone who leaves things until the last moment. I'm one too, and the best thing that helps me is to "Just start for a minute". Just start cleaning up your tabs for 1 minute and you will soon be able to take a good amount of time to clean them up.
Good Luck!

Xmarks Sync

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I would like to suggest that this addon gives me a feature to make a bookmark folder always sorted by name. That way when I add something it is added alphabetically, and not at the end of the list.

Thanks to this addon, I was able to get rid of over 100 bookmarks over 2 profiles.
Thank you.

Tree Style Tab

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

MISSING TABS SOLUTION!!!

sorry for the caps, thought it was best as this solution is better than ScienceBrain's.
My tab bar is vertical.
1. Open a new tab.

2. click on the close button(the one at the bottom of the bar) and drag it(dont actually close the new tab). Drag the bar to the bottom middle of the browser and then the bar becomes horizontal.

3. When it is horizontal, you click and hold down on the left scroll button to let it take you all the way back to the first tab.

4. When you are at the first tab, drag the bar to the middle right/left of the browser(using the close button again). Then you can see all your tabs again.

This fixes the problem for that session. Restarting Firefox might mess up your tabs again. I hope to see a solid solution soon.
3 stars until this gets fixed. Then it would have 5 stars.

Multiple Tab Handler

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

As asked by bluesakura.
I would also like to see an option to send the tabs to TooManyTabs.
This would be really handy and is exactly what I am looking for to help me manage my tabs. There's just too many to click on each one.

Tree Style Tab

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Could you get this to work with "snap links plus".
It lets you open up several tabs by drawing a green rectangle on the screen(like when you highlight several files.). The plugin works fine, except that the tabs aren't becoming child tabs.

It's found at

Thanks for this addon. It has made my browsing a lot easier.

Tree Style Tab

Tabs missing + solution Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I use Tree Style Tabs in Ubuntu 9.10(also a problem in 9.04). When I close down firefox and load it up again, loads of my tabs are missing, although they are still loading in the background. I have around 90 tabs open.

SOLUTION:

My tab bar is vertical.
1. click on the "open a new tab" button and drag it. Drag the bar to the bottom middle of the browser and then the bar becomes horizontal.

MouseZoom

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I just found out that the fireGestures can do this for Linux. You just go into preferences and then general options and change the right click + scroll. And enable the rocker gesture.

I would still prefer this addon as it would be more light weight.

MouseZoom

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I would like this for Linux too.
I haven't used it yet, but do want to give it a try as it sounds like just what I was looking for.

Does this act the same as Firefox's zoom when holding down CTRL and scrolling? If not, could you also make this a possibility.

I will regularly check back and give a positive review when it is on Linux.

FullerScreen

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I have found a way for Linux Fluxbox users to get Firefox in a windowed Fullerscreen. I mean a normal Firefox window that looks like it is in fullscreen using Fullerscreen.

Open your ~/.fluxbox/keys file and add the two lines.
OnWindow Mod4 Mouse1 :Fullscreen
OnWindow Mod4 Mouse3 :MacroCmd {Fullscreen} {ToggleDecor} {MaximizeWindow}

Go to the Firefox menu and select “Reload Config” or just restart Fluxbox.

How it works
In Firefox, press F11 to go into fullscreen. Hold down the “Windows key” and left click anywhere on the Firefox window. You will now have Firefox looking like it is in Fullerscreen but will be able to resize and view other windows.

If you wanted the Titlebar to disappear as well, hold down windows key and press right click when in fullscreen.

TO EXIT:
If you pressed Win+left click
Just press F11 and Firefox will go back to normal.
If you pressed Win+right click
press F11. Then do Win+right click(you might need to right click twice)
This will give you back the title bar.

WARNING:
There is a slight problem with the tab bar. It might disappear. I get this problem using Tab Mix Plus with multiple tab rows. To get the tab bar back, exit fullscreen mode.

If your multiple tab row becomes just 1 row, you will need to resize the window to correct.

This extension is great, but I cant select what extra toolbars I want to view. The preferences has nothing for it(using Ubuntu 8.10).

FullerScreen

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It works!
Thank you for fixing it. This is great for full-fullscreen viewing.

Could you possibly add a feature to make Firefox pseudo-fullscreen. What I mean by this is for Firefox to act like it is in fullscreen mode, but is actually windowed. This would help save space on the desktop.

Plus on linux, it would be possible to hide even the titlebar and the taskbar.

I don't really like that I can't switch between apps and keep Firefox nice and clean.
