My Reviews

BarTab Heavy

Seems to work better than Suspend Tab, so far... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Just tried this out as a replacement for Suspend Tab (by Piro), since it claims to have even more features, in addition to the great optimization methods used in the former... So far, I like it! (It's even saving me SUBSTANTIALLY more memory, for some reason; about 600 MB worth.)My only complaint is that the "Always Keep Loaded" isn't as configurable as it could be, because it only accepts ENTIRE DOMAINS for exception, instead of allowing for operators that would allow greater control... For example, I'd like to be able to keep my main Reddit app tab loaded at all times (www.reddit.com), yet allow all other specific Reddit links (www.reddit.com/*/)to be unloaded like usual. It would be great if this functionality existed; perhaps via the use of boolean operators, or even just the simple asterisk (*) to achieve the result described above...

Context Search X

A newer, updated incarnation of the classic FF addon! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm very happy I found this addon, which seems to be an upgraded/optimized version of the original "Context Search." I've been using that previous addon for years and I had no idea that someone developed a newer, improved version that offers more functionality and better configuration options. The stay-open menu option ("pin menu") is a great example of just one reason why it's worth using this newer incarnation of the classic Firefox extension. As is the case with a select few "must-have" addons, it's tough to imagine using Firefox without it. I'd even go so far as to suggest that the Firefox UX design team should have implemented this functionality by default, or at least provided an option to enable similar usage. Regardless, the developer of this addon should be praised for picking up the torch and keeping one of the most useful Firefox addons ever made relevant and up-to-date, with even more great functionality...

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.6.13.1-signed). 

Stay-Open Menu

Should be implemented in FF UX by default! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This addon is in a league of its own; it's one of the few extensions that are so useful and convenient, they should eventually be implemented in the Firefox UX design by default! Like a few other "must-have" addons, it's tough to imagine using FF without this ability. The developer of this addon deserves every ounce of praise he or she is receiving for it.

TabCorral

Great potential if freeware... Rated 3 out of 5 stars

What's different than TooManyTabs, aside from the fact that the "Pro" version costs money? Without cloud syncing, I'm having trouble finding this more useful than other tab-saving/managing addons that do the same thing... I understand that everyone wants to make a buck for their trouble, but this addon would have been great if the sync feature was free, and piggybacked off of Firefox Sync via the user's sqlite database. Actually, the paid version uses Google Docs as a cloud, and not your own servers? Why the cost, then?

Menu Editor

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a great addon if your right-click context menu is getting crowded with useless items from extensions that you don't need to be displayed in the context menu, or even if you want to "trim" some of FF's default context menu options out. The ability to reorganize placement, add separators and more is an added bonus. Definitely worthy of five stars!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.6). 

Stay-Open Menu

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is one of those addons that's so useful, the FF team should have already included its functionality as a default option in the settings menu. It's a no-brainer, especially for live feed bookmarks and frequently-used bookmark folders. Great addon.
