In a little more detail...

Active theme developer for Mozilla Firefox, Thunderbird, Seamonkey and Songbird. I have also contributed to Mozilla core development in areas such as image decoding, zip file decoding, network cache, css parsing, and others. Developing all these themes and keeping these up to date with current (and future) releases of Firefox, Thunderbird (incl. Lightning) and Songbird take up much of my sparetime (next to acting, particular in open air performances of Shakespeare).

My Reviews

Cookie Time

Should be default in Firefox! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This a simple and much needed feature that should be by default in Firefox with some sensible settings to expire cookies after a week or month or so. The extension description should describe how to use this (go to Addons Manager, select options of this extension).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3). 

Customize about:newtab

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very good, especially the feature to change number of rows and colums of the tiles. Would be even more nice if background color/image can be turned off, so that the theme background can be used (for example for my themes Walnut, Nautipolis, etc)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.0). 

Magnifier

Please put style rules in chrome://magnifier/skin/ Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Please put style rules in chrome://magnifier/skin/magnifier.css.
The style rules directly applied to the content cannot be easily overridden by a theme.

Walnut Theme Fix

I have createa a new version for FF 12 and greater. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Contact me. I have createa a new version for FF 12 and greater, which I want to share with you.

Cheevos for Firefox

Nice! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Nice!
More pointers to indicate where/how to score would be nice.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4). 

miniFoxFlat

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

For those who miss 'MiniFox', try 'LittleFox' or 'MicroFox'.

Canvas - Make your own Firefox theme

This is a theme disguised as extension Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This extension installs its own theme, or at least destroys parts of the current selected theme,
Any one wanting to add pictures to the toolbar just use the Personas extension from the Firefox team. It doesn't play with other themes.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0b4). 

RESTClient, a debugger for RESTful web services.

Quick, simple and very useful! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Quick, simple and very useful!Would be even better if syxtax/index/color highlighting would work.
And it does even work in the FF4 nightlies (just fix the maxVersion in install.rdf).

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

Liquid Tabs

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works like a charm, particularly with my themes: LittleFox, Nautipolis, Walnut and Walnut2.
P.s. when closing the last tab (in CloseWithLastWindow=false), the tab shrinks and then reappears. This actually an issue in the tab handling itself, as a 'close' command on the last tab should not do anything.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.0). 

Personas Plus

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

From version 1.5 onwards, Personas won't allow other themes together with Personas in Firefox 3.6.

To use a real theme (such as Nautipolis or LittleFox) with a Personas, install Personas version 1.4, and don't update to version 1.5.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5).

I don't like these Windows glossy style layout

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

Noia 2.0 eXtreme (v3.x)

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Lightning Nightly Updater (Unofficial)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

To update this extension to the new directory: in the extension directory:
extensions\lightning-nightly-updater@olive\content in the file overlay.js change the line 85 from:
tehVersion = "comm-central";
to:
tehVersion = "comm-1.9.1";

Greetings, Alfred (author of Walnut, Nautipolis, etc)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.081202).
