Menu Wizard

Menu Wizard + Menu Editor = perfection. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I combined Menu Wizard with Menu Editor (version 1.2.7) and the result is utter perfection (after customizing, of course).

I was previously avoiding any version of Firefox that's newer than 31.7.0 because every version since 32 has the new main context menu and I hate it for various reasons. For some reason, I never thought to have Menu Wizard and Menu Editor enabled AT THE SAME TIME. With only Menu Wizard enabled (and heavily customized), there are still things I don't like and they are beyond the control of Menu Wizard. Once I enabled Menu Editor though, everything became perfect. I can finally live with the latest version of Firefox!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.04).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Menu Wizard

Exactly what I was looking for (and more)! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Ever since Mozilla changed the context menu with the release of Firefox 32, I have been looking for a way to get back the access key of 'R' for Reload. During my quest, I kept using Firefox 31.5.3 which is the last version that I could find before 32 came out. Well, now my quest is over thanks to Menu Wizard because it allows the customization of the access keys! Of course, it can do MUCH more than that! So, this is definitely a "must have" and a "keeper". Wow. I was once angry with Mozilla for ruining the context menu, but if they hadn't messed with it, then I wouldn't have Menu Wizard. So, I guess now I am grateful to Mozilla for doing that.

You see, I depend on being able to right-click and then quickly tap 'R' for Reload because often times for me, that's faster and easier than tapping F5 or right-clicking and then clicking Reload. Up until now though, I had Menu Editor installed but I never gave any thought to the possibility that I need to find an alternative menu editor, nor did I know that other menu editors even existed (but I assumed that Menu Editor was still the only one, so I never checked). So with this access key problem, I just thought that I needed to find some fancy way of getting it back. I guess I was wrong. :)

So yeah, now that I have Menu Wizard, all I can say is that it is extremely awesome and it absolutely destroys Menu Editor in every way, and again, it's not just because I can right-click and tap 'R'. Thank you, Oleksandr!!

RefreshBlocker

Exactly what I was looking for! Except for one minor thing... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It's great! It blocks the automatic reload on Weather Underground, and that's exactly what I wanted.

I only gave this 4 out of 5 stars though because I don't like how I can't disable the infobox. I mean, I feel that an option should exist to NOT show it. It's an eyesore. Y'know?

Other than that though, it does exactly what I wanted it to do: block Weather Underground's automatic reload. I just hope that the next version of RefreshBlocker will include the ability to never show the infobox, and I hope that it gets created and released very soon.

Status-4-Evar

Works in UX Nightly 25.0a1! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

So far, so good. Thanks to Status-4-Evar, UX Nightly 25.0a1 isn't so bad now.

I hope that Status-4-Evar still works when UX Nightly becomes Firefox 25 (meaning, when UX Nightly goes through the process of becoming Nightly, Aurora, Beta and then finally Firefox 25).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2013.02.16.23.1-signed). 

Custom Tab Width

This works in UX Nightly too! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I just tried this in UX Nightly (version 24.0a1), and it works! I tried changing "browser.tabs.tabMaxWidth" all the way up to 500 prior to installing Custom Tab Width, but only Custom Tab Width makes it work! Nice.

I didn't need this until the UX Nightly build. In Firefox 21, my setting in about:config was still working. Well done, Dao Gottwald!

SuperStop

Works perfectly. I even got it to be just Esc instead of Shift+Esc! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This works as advertised for me, and I even learned how to change the shortcut from Shift+Esc to just Esc! Here's how:

1. Install Superstop
2. Install keyconfig: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=72994
3. Go into keyconfig (keyboard shortcut: Ctrl+Shift+F12)
4. Look for "superstop-shortcut" and select it
5. Click in the text box where you see "Shift+Esc"
6. Press Esc (so don't type it)
7. Keyconfig will say "This shortcut is already used by Stop. It might still work, though". This is correct: it does!
9. Click OK
10. Click Apply
11. Click Close

Thanks to this, I am now using Firefox 21.0 and I am able to stop animated GIFs by pressing just Esc! Naturally, I'd love to see the ability to toggle between the new and old behaviors of the Esc key in either Tools > Options or about:config, but for now this is definitely good enough for me!

I learned this by complaining in this bug:

QuickRestart

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

In my original review, I mentioned that the toolbar button sits a few pixels too high when using Noia 2.0 (eXtreme). But I need to clarify this: it only sits high when I have both Icons and Text showing. The added text raises it up a little bit. I mean, if I have just Icons, or just Text, then this is not an issue. To further clarify, this extension is 100% compatibile with the Default theme. But because of this issue, I'd say it's 99% compatible with Noia 2.0 (eXtreme).

QuickRestart

Another "must-have" for me! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I am very glad and grateful that this extension exists. I'm even more glad that there's a keyboard shortcut for it!! This is an excellent extension, and it prevents me from saying, "Oh, I hate when Firefox wants me to manually restart it instead of providing a convenient little button!"

Reader, if you're checking out the reviews to see if this is worth installing, then I am telling you right now that it's totally worth it!! My only complaint is that it sits a few pixels too high on my toolbar when I'm using Noia 2.0 (eXtreme), but that's cool. I'll tell Juan about it and hope that he has success in fixing it!

Stop hesitating and just install it! :)

Copy Link Text

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Yeah, I love the new version. Now when I have a url to open in a new tab, Firefox also switches to it immediately. It never used to do that for Copy Link Text even though that was my Firefox setting. Cool.

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

Noia 2.0 (eXtreme)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Nice update. I like that the default is with the lines, and that we have the option to go without them.

To those who cannot get the options to work: once you've changed that value to True in about:config and then attempt to edit the options, you're then gonna have to click "Allow" and "Remember this action" many, many times in a row (or so it seemed) before it works. It will be the first and last time you'll have to go through all that clicking. I used to think that I was never gonna get the options to work until one day I became very determined, thereby finding out that it's okay to keep clicking. Also, once you have set the options, you do not have to leave the about:config value to True for the options to remain set.

Noia 2.0 (eXtreme)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

To: steak_knife

To go back to an earlier version for any add-on, go to the main page for that add-on and look for "See All Versions", which is located in the Long Description area. Of course, you must click on "See All Versions. Then you'll be brought to the add-on's Version History page. Just in case: there's no need to reply with another review to say "thank you". It's all good.

Save Link in Folder

Great add-on! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have gotten much more use out of this add-on than I ever thought I would. This is may be a simple add-on, but it's very useful. I will never stop using it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4.2). 

Ctrl-Tab

This is Cool Switch for Firefox! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I really like this add-on because it finally gives me the Ctrl+Tab behavior that I have always wanted being that I'm a Windows user who loves alt+tab, or the Cool Switch.

So, this review is dedicated to E N who posted "ok" on September 7th. E N, this isn't a redundant add-on to glorify a feature already present in Firefox. With this add-on, ctrl+tab now behaves as a Windows user would expect it to. Previously, ctrl+tab wasn't enough. I also needed to enlist Ctrl+Page Up and Ctrl+Page Down (try it). But now ctrl+tab works just like alt+tab, or the Windows "Cool Switch", so I no longer need Ctrl+Page Up or Ctrl+Page Down.

This is Cool Switch for Firefox! It's also my new favorite add-on!

NoScript Security Suite

This is a must-have add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This has allowed me to block pagead2.googlesyndication.com! It also blocks everything else I hate!!! Whoa! I can finally load pages without waiting for one of those dumb servers like pagead2.googlesyndication. And yeah, I did try adding it to the hosts file along with everything else relating to Google such as www.google-analytics.com. Thanks to NoScript, I no longer have to deal with any of that stuff which halts the loading of a page until the server sends back a response.

Thank you, Giorgio Maone!!!

Extended Statusbar

If you're having trouble with 1.5.3... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

If you're having trouble with version 1.5.3., then you might actually have 1.5.2. Take a look and see. All I know is that well before 5 a.m. Central Time today, 1.5.3. was available, but Firefox notified me about 1.5.2 instead because 1.5.3. was not on the main page yet (I think this means that 1.5.3. wasn't "approved" yet). I found it when I tried to revert back to 1.5.1. (1.5.2. was giving me both Classic and New Styles simultaneously, and Slim Mode did not work), by going to the "See All Versions" page.

So, perhaps you updated to 1.5.2, then came here to write a review assuming that it's 1.5.3. because that's what's on the main page now (because after all, you think that you just got the latest version). Does that make any sense? I think that this is a good lesson for us to be absolutely certain that we know which version we're referring to in our reviews.

Noia 2.0 (eXtreme)

The best theme for me! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I used to use Outlook 2003 Silver, and I couldn't find a better theme for me. But now that I have tried Noia 2.0 (eXtreme), there is no way I'll use any other theme. This is the one for me!

Tab Scope

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I don't know yet if this is useful for me personally, but wow. This is very, very, very fun. I changed the width and height to 16:9 dimensions for the sake of consistency, then "Fit size", and bam. Perfect previews. Very cool.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.2.8). 

Shazou

This is so cool! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I can't help but rate this a 10 because it uses Google Maps!!! I use Google Maps for all my traveling needs, even though I'm not a "traveler".

I would've given this a much lower Rating had you made it use MapQuest or something like that!

Ah yes. Google Maps. Nice choice. :)

My only complaint is that I can't maximize the window. It's at a fixed size, and that SORTA bugs me, but hey - it's not a big enough deal for me to rate it any lower. This is such a cool extension. It's not useful to ME, but it's FUN!


P.S. I know where your server is!

Outlook 2003 Blue

Hey Bernhard? Thank you. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

For me, this is the very best Theme ever created.

I think it's the best looking theme ever created. I really love the fact that it comes in the same 3 colors of the 3 default Windows XP Themes! I haven't had any problems with it, either!

I have both Blue and Silver installed. I always use the Silver color scheme in Winxp, but I may go back to Blue one day, so I keep Outlook 2003 Blue around just in case! :) But I'll never go Olive Green. What was Microsoft THINKING? :)

Anyway, I rated this a 10 because of all the themes available here at addons.mozilla.org, it's the ONLY theme I'll ever use. I may try Metal Lion - Vista, but eh.. it just doesn't compare.

Excellent job, Bernhard. I'm forever grateful to you for creating this theme.

Clean And Close

This is cool. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've always hated having to manually close the Downloads dialog box after clicking on Clean Up. Thanks to you, I don't HAVE to anymore. Nice!

Thank you, Chris!
