My Reviews

Omnibar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Makes the locationbar truly awesome! I replaced "Searchbar Autosizer" with this add-on. It works great in combination with "Peers". Only change I'd like is changing the function of the engine icon: On mouse-over, the tooltip should display the current search engine's name (useful when several searches use the same icon, like Google Images and News searches), the current help text is better put on the config screen. Left-click and right-click functions should be switched around, choosing the engine with left-click and changing configuration with right-click seem more intuitive. Middle-click could open the current engine's page in a new tab. Maybe those functions could also be made customizable. Can the icon's postion on the locationbar be changed? I'd like to have it at the very end of the bar since the search bar came behind the location bar, now the search icon is in front of other symbols like the favorite star icon, I'd rather customize that as well. Finally, THANKS for this great add-on, I hope it's out of "experimental" status soon...

BugMeNot

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Isn't it ironic that the main reason I installed this add-on was to be able to install experimental add-ons from this site on other computers where I don't want to use my own login?! Well, it can come in handy occasionally, so I certainly recommend it...

Toolbar Buttons

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Lots and lots of useful little features - like clear URL bar (although I dislike the icon) or the very nifty Toggle Images button... Most of these should be part of the Firefox base!

Tab Mix Plus

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Yes, Firefox tabbed browsing has improved constantly, but still Tab Mix Plus enhances it even more... I use it to add a New Tab button to the left of the tabbar and a Close Tab button to the right - since the buttons stay in place all the time, it's much easier to click them to open or close several tabs quickly!

Stop-or-Reload Button

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Why oh why isn't this part of Firefox itself? I don't want to waste screen real estate, so combining Reload/Stop is a no-brainer! So small and so useful - I always install this add-on...

Stealther

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very important for protecting your privacy - e. g. to search Amazon without your search influencing your profile! And countless other sites where you may be tracked against your will...

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.6). 

Splash!

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Well, not exactly a must-have, but a nice touch nevertheless! Especially when you set up Firefox for someone special and personalize it that way...

Speed Dial

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It replaced my homepage - that's truly an effort! Once it's set up to your liking, you won't want to miss this...

Searchbar Autosizer

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

My goal would be to combine the location and search bar into a single bar - that would be really awesome! Until that's possible, this add-on lets me minimize the search bar so it only shows the active search engine. I also use Peers to search from the address bar. Thanks to the Add to Search Bar extension, I set up a lot of useful search engines. Now I simply enter the keyword (sometimes just a single letter) followed by the search term in the address bar, check the search bar to see if the proper engine is selected, and then search. That's awesome search for Firefox!

ScrapBook

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

An interesting addition to Firefox - helps you collect information instead of simply links to information. With links, once the site is gone, the information may be lost. Not so with this extension.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.3.7). 

Resizeable Textarea

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Once more an add-on that should be an integral part of Firefox itself! Doesn't work with all text boxes, though...

Pocket

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

There's just so much information on the web, and so little time to read it all, this extension is very nice to quickly bookmark stuff AND get back to it later!

Personal Menu (Personal Firefox Button)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I used this to hide the menu since I need as much space as possible on laptop screens - but now I use the Autohide extension (http://www.krickelkrackel.de/autohide/) and fullscreen mode...

NoScript Security Suite

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Although it might only be for more advanced users, it's one of the most important add-ons for me - I simply won't use Firefox without Noscript!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.8.2.8). 

Locationbar²

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's another add-on that should be integrated into Firefox proper!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.3). 

Live HTTP Headers

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Most useful add-on to prepare for scripting/scraping some site!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.14). 

Link Alert

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Wow, once you start using this, you'll not want to miss it! My statusbar is always visible and I check links before I click them, but this makes it so much easier, a very welcome feature that should be a standard part of Firefox!

Konquefox

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Admittedly a niche add-on, but I've always liked Konqueror's one-click URL cleaner! But did you know you can middle-click on the favicon next to the URL to automatically visit a link from the clipboard? That's even faster...

Gmail Manager

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Must-have if you have several Gmail accounts!
