Google Redirects Fixer

Aaaaand....Remove google search redirects still rocks. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

@Timberwolf Programmers: Except gPrivacy doesn't work the way you claim it does. After installing it doesn't work on Google search to remove search redirect link from straight clickthrough nor on right-click to open in new tab nor with copy and paste.

So, you were saying?....

Google Redirects Fixer

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Stilez writes: "If you kill that redirect link, then Google Images only links to the full image itself -- but you cannot go from Google Images to the "containing page" for that image, you can't find where the image came from and go there."

In my experience, this is simply not true. I use this add-on every day as it's rolled into a formerly public userscript of mine and I have had no problems whatsoever with viewing whatever I want in Google Images - be that the full-size picture, the "containing" or originating page the image comes from, or whatever.

While I'm *not* suggesting it's the case, in my experience, *if* you use AdblockPlus or AdBlockEdge these days, you're going to encounter a lot of problems with seemingly random links and web page features being blocked - even if those links and features are completely unrelated to any ads being shown (and yes, I need to leave those devs reviews to clue them into this if they're not already aware, because it's messing up my online experience entirely).

Because I've done so much coding on Google, I usually leave ad-blockers disabled on Google sites, so I can't say if that's what's causing this issue, but if you have one of those adblockers installed you might try disabling them to see if that possibly fixes the problem in Google Images that you've been having.

LastPass Password Manager

Please fix this add-on for us. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Re https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/lastpass-password-manager/reviews/514439/ in which you suggest a user install a dev version: really?

I've used LP for years and loved the pre-2013 versions very much, despite occasional mishaps that the add-on seems known for, like LP switching cookies on different profiles used on the same website, not auto-detecting many password forms, which forces us to use the Save Form Data feature, but now we also have the add-on 1) freezing the browser upon login, 2) loggin me in, showing me my Vault, then logging me out 2-5 seconds later with "Invalid password! Try again!" red bar messages when obviously my password worked just fine or LP would not have let me in and showed me all my sites to begin with, and LP is also telling me for weeks now, every day, 3-4 times on every website I try to log into through the LP bar that my master password is invalid when I know I typed it in correctly and have done so for years.

Taken all together, these issues are extremely annoying and frustrating - you folks should not have rolled out 2013 versions before testing them much more thoroughly. I have been holding my tongue all year waiting for fixes and I cannot stand it anymore. I am actually thinking on whether or not to switch to Keepass or some other pw manager. I have never seriously considered doing that since the day I started using LP years ago but these combined errors are just becoming too much. Please fix this add-on so we can continue to use it and love it.

Google Redirects Fixer

The best redirect scrubber I've seen, bar none. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Seriously, this is the only add-on I've tried that does what it says on the tin - no matter what. Works on results accessed from http://google.com or https://google.com and from the Firefox search box, works on regular results and Google Blogs, Google News and Google Recipes (results sets that all other userscripts and add-ons I've tried fail on)...also scrubs click-tracking URL from right-click for a clean copy and paste... Extremely well-done; kudos to the dev for this add-on. :)

CustomizeGoogle

Is Mozilla's partnership with GOOG clouding its judgement...or is the following sentence a typo? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

"Note from Mozilla: This add-on has been discontinued. Try Google Minimalist instead."

You guys are kidding, right? Google Minimalist has nothing to do with CustomizeGoogle at all. The former completely anonymized search results, the latter just changes Google's design into a goofy-looking box on a select few pages. Like saying, "No apples? Just eat oranges, man. Same thing!" You guys can't be serious.

Tab Mix Plus

Thank you! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

@aquaman: Thank you. If you hadn't posted that link here I might never have found it since I visited Gary's site earlier and still missed it (chances are it's in some obvious place but I'm just going blind or something). This is one extension I can't live without. I tried force-installing the last version with Nightly Tester Tools but in 3.5 the preferences don't stick and it was starting to drive me nuts.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.7.3). 

Black Steel

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is gorgeous. I came across it while searching for "firefox black themes" on the Web and when I clicked through to the write-up on it, it said it was still experimental, but when I went to the install page I saw it's already compatible with Firefox 3/latest version.

I'm actually running it on Beta 3.4 and it's just awesome - good contrast, gorgeous tabs and menus, everything sleek and modern without too much shine.

It goes nicely with my Zune XP theme (if it had orange accents instead of dark liquid blue it would match Zune perfectly, but it's good enough).

I used to think Japan BlackMAX was awesome (for it's time it was) but I've been searching high and low for good black themes ever since JBM stopped updating, and this one wins them all.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.2). 

BlackJapanMAX

Amazing. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Would like to see icons a bit smaller for those of us who use smaller icons. Also, when you hover over a menu choice, the text for it dissappears. When you hover over a close button in a tab, the close button also dissappears. These "bugs" could use fixing. But other than that this has to be the most well-thought out theme I've ever used in Firefox; clean, nice use of drop shadows and "shiny stuff", excellent readability in addon menus and the like. Well-done!
