Rated 3 out of 5 starsThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.6.5709).
Rated 1 out of 5 stars
The new version is absolute garbage. It updated on me just now and I lost all of my scripts. The exact same thing happened to Stylish!
So, I turned off automatic updates for Greasemonkey and installed version 3.17 and now everything is fine. I did a very similar thing for Stylish and that worked as well.
I will be avoiding all new versions of Greasemonkey.

Stylish is completely broken for me with this update, and so I'm posting a 1-star review. I switched back to version 2.1.1 and turned off updates for Stylish, and now everything is fine. Version 2.1.1 gets a 5-star rating from me, but 3.0.1 is worthless. This obviously wasn't tested all that thoroughly before it was released!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0.1).
The perfect replacement for Multi Smart Search! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
For years I was using Multi Smart Search. I recently upgraded from Firefox 49.0.2. to Firefox 55.0.3 and found that Multi Smart Search doesn't work with it at all. I found Context Search to be identical to what I had before, so I'm happy. :)
The only thing I would change is what the menu item says. Right now it just says, "Search for *searchstring*. I think it should say, "Search for *searchstring* using...". So, add the word "using" with the ellipsis. Or, even "on..." instead of "using...".
So for example: searching for the word" Firefox" would make it say, "Search for "Firefox" using...", or "Search for "Firefox" on...".
I guess there's one other thing I would change, if it's even possible: make this include right-clicking links. The default search in Firefox will search the text of links when simply right-clicking the link.
Anyway, yeah, this is a great extension.
I have an easier fix for the top of images being cut off when they're zoomed in. Rated 5 out of 5 stars
All you have to do is disable "Remove default stylesheet".
So, go into the settings for Old Default Image Style and disable "Remove default stylesheet" and this will instantly fix the problem.
Just to be clear, this fixes the problem where the top of the image gets cut off when you zoom in. In order to have this problem, you have to have 2 settings enabled in this extension:
"Remove default stylesheet" and "Center image". So, if you have "Center image" enabled, then you can't have "Remove default stylesheet" enabled.
That's all there is to it.
Beyond that, this is one of my "must have" extensions.
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!
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!!
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.
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 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!
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:
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).This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.4).
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! :)
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).
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.

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.
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).
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!!!
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.
