My Reviews

Speed Dial [FVD] - New Tab Page, Sync...

It does the job well Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Nice and configurable. The "top 10 user images" feature is a good idea.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.3.1). 

FireGestures

Some show-stoppers Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Very configurable, unfortunately also quite buggy - with FireGestures installed, opening new foreground tab (by clicking a middle button) steals the focus from the current tab so that middle-clicking another link or scrolling the wheel won't work until you left-click the page again to focus it. Needless to say, it's extremely annoying. (Disabling the extension solves the issue.)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.6.13). 

All-in-One Gestures

Not that hot Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Too many things you CAN'T do with that extension, such as closing all tabs to the left (or right), pinning / unpinning tabs, duplicate tabs, move current tab to a new window, go incognito etc. I wouldn't bet for my life that this list is 100% correct (that all of them are actually unavailable), but the list of configurable operations is not divided into categories, it can't be sorted and it can't be searched, which does not help either. I use Chrome along with Firefox, and its Smooth Gestures beat this one hands down.

Cleeki - Instant Search

Not very useful Rated 2 out of 5 stars

The idea is great, but 1. it doesn't support Unicode (I guess?), which means that googling via Cleeki for - say - "małżeństwa", redirects me to a Google search for "ma³¿eñstwa". Not being able to properly handle foreign language characters looks pretty lame, given that it's 2012 already. 2. Adding new, custom channels (other than predefined ones; Bing, for example) is unintuitive and requires some "reverse engineering", as the configuration dialog doesn't bother to describe the meaning of the placeholders (such as [kw] or [cs]) one is expected to include in urls.

Buggy Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Somewhat buggy (doesn't work properly if the website has been already bookmarked in another folder).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.0.20120221).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Strata-o-Various

Doesn't work with 3.6!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Not compatible with 3.6! I downgraded. Please, fix it...

Combined with black Personas, it's really the best theme out there - and I tried many

Multi Links

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Well I did read the instructions before posting the review, but... well, it simply doesn't work. At least not on Firefox 3.5.6. It does select multiple links, but nothing happens when I release the mouse button. It's set to "Open in new Tabs" (basically I didn't change default settings, as they're fine with me) and the add-on is enabled, yet it still doesn't work.

It also interfered with Text Area Resizer - but Text Area Resizer is not bound to the right mouse button, so I could reconfigure it. MultiLinks, on the other hand, is not configurable in this aspect. That's another minus

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.0.12). 

Undo Closed Tabs Button

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

It does some of the stuff it says it does.

There is no drop down list though, and that really limits the functionality of the extension.

I'm looking for something like the "closed tabs trash can" on Opera

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.5.1). 

Tidy Favorites

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

"Firefox can't establish a connection to the server" = unsusable

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.2). 

PrintWhatYouLike Button

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works fine for me (I haven't checked the autoformat feature yet), and the idea itself is very good.

The button does not automatically land on the toolbar, you have to open the Customize window (right-click on the main toolbar and choose "Customize"), find it and drag onto the toolbar wherever you like.

TooManyTabs - Saves Your Memory

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

1. It adds another toolbar to Firefox. Another toolbar? For a couple of toolstrip items which do not need more than 150 pixels horizontally? What a waste of space.
(And you can't drag these controls onto another toolbar! I wouldn't complain about it if you could).

What's more, I couldn't get this extension to work without this toolbar visible.
I'm not saying it's impossible, but not intuitive enough for me to figure out straight away. That's not good.

2. After uninstallation, this add-on does not clean up after itself (it leaves its folders in Unsorted bookmarks).
Sure, not a problem likely to "set your computer on fire or something". But, something that still deserves thumbs down - out of principle.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.1). 

Personal Menu (Personal Firefox Button)

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very nice extension, does it job all right - and a good idea (honestly, how often do you use menu bar?). Some more pixels set free.

The only drawback: quite why has the icon to be so ugly (at least on XP it looks awful).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.2.1). 

Chrome View

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It does what it says. Kudos for supporting SRWare Iron, too - it's better than Chrome!

I just wish you added an optional behaviour being that - when I'd open a website in Iron, the same tab would automatically get closed in Firefox.

Why so?
Because I mainly use your extension for Youtube videos, which are choppy under Firefox - but smooth in Iron (as well as in every other browser, as a matter of fact).
But since Youtube video clips start to play automatically, it means that every time I have to go back to Firefox, close the tab, then go back to Iron - or else I'd have the same clip playing simultaneously in both browsers.

"Invalid file hash (possible download corruption)."

Tabs Open Relative

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A must-have. I really don't understand why this isn't default behaviour in Firefox by the way (it is in Chrome / Iron).

FoxTab

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very good extension, nice looking, configurable, practical.

I only wish there was an option of setting FoxTab as a home page in Firefox (with the set of the most often visited websites - like in Safari for Windows). I'd certainly use this option.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2). 

MouseZoom

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It does what it says it does... the problem I have with it is that it does not disable the scrolling effect of the mouse wheel (middle button) while the right button is pressed, which causes websites to "swim" up or down while I'm zooming in/out.

If your mouse wheel's sensitivity is set to low, then this side effect is probably negligible, but I've set mine to fast (I like fast scrolling) and websites dance like crazy while I'm adjusting the zoom.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.6).
