Rated 5 out of 5 stars

To copy and paste from another reviewer, "Some of the best ideas are the simple ones."

And I seem to remember that this is where it used to be many moons ago. Another dumb change for the sake of change by Firefox International?

Password Mask Changer

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I agree! with the first two reviewers: peculiar, interesting. Let's add fun, awesome and delicious.

Old Default Image Style

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is an absolutely perfect and essential add-on that shouldn't have to exist: because the geniuses at Firefox shouldn't have made such a bone-headed move in the first place and then having done so they should have allowed the user to turn it off.

At first I thought it was a website I was viewing pictures on that had done this, then I saw it was Firefox and I IMMEDIATELY looked for a solution.

Plus, you require no restart either. I'd like to buy you a cup of coffee or a beer. Whichever you prefer. And if you can't decide I'll buy you both.

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

Gmail Watcher

Flawless & a conscientious developer! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Just as I said in my title: I'm so impressed both by the quality of extension, ease of use, and features but also by how far the developer has gone with providing instructions and screenshots AND not only that but a personal response to almost every feature question that has been placed in a review. I have my own personal question: I have "show unread counter on toolbar button unchecked but I still see the number next to the status bar icon: I know that the toolbar button and the status bar icon are not the same thing and work somewhat differently but is there a way to turn it off in the status bar? (I have a large number of "unread" emails in my Inbox that are basically spam that I haven't taken the time to delete ;-) Maybe I've answered my own question! I just need to clean out my In box! But getting rid of the number would be great. Thanks for the awesome extension.

Ambient Fox Xyan

I'm Your Fan ! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I really really like this. After I installed I thought "wow! but can handle the intensity of the colors at my age?" haha But after a few minutes, yes, yes I can!

I absolutely love the way that my bookmarks bar and the main bar (toolbar?) seamlessly are combined.

The only jarring thing is what I can't do anything about: the top edge of the window which remains mac OS X graphite.

I haven't noticed any of the issues that other reviews mentioned.

I think the idea of multiple color options for this theme is a great one (you've already done the maroon :-) Personally, I would love to see a "lighter" version: almost as light as the iFox original and iFox smooth themes. And a very light copper version. But then that's just me!

One thing, and I know that this isn't default Firefox 3.x behavior, but many themes (Silvermel, iFox, Full Flat) have restored the yellow highlighting and cranberry highlighting for secure and semi-secure sites on the url bar. And I'm a BIG fan of that. I'm not sure what colors would work well with the emerald though.

Tab Preview

How to solve the flicker problem Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's seems to not flicker at all on my Mac IF I enable the "preview delay" option in the Preferences. This is a great extension, also something that I discovered when I was trying out Opera, and maybe more tweaks could be added like the opacity of the thumbnails or a border or lack thereof but honestly, five minutes after installing it, I love it!

extbook

Should be a "recommended add-on" on the front page!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hallo! Weiss nicht ob ich auf Deutsch schreiben soll! It's a schande that this extension only has 1 review and less than 500 total downloads!! This is the bookmarking add-on that I have been looking for ever since switching from Firefox 2.0. Brilliant in concept and execution--and so easy to use. "Experimental" and (almost) the initial release and yet close to perfect--I have some suggestions that I will email the developer (soon!) to build upon this GREAT extension.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.1). 

Stop-or-Reload Button

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Absolutely perfect! Toggles between the buttons flawlessly: the about:config tweaks don't come close to this lovely little extension! Thanks so much to the developer.

AboutConfig

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's ridiculous to "rate" something that you don't know how to use, what it does, or why you might want to even install it. This does exactly what is supposed to do, works perfectly with Thunderbird 2.0, and deserves every star I've given it: *****

OpenBook

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I posted too soon; the method I gave in my last post does not work. Sorry!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.0.0). 

OpenBook

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Yet another post! I want to let everybody know that you can get back all the missing functionality of the old OpenBook by installing Version 1.3.4.1! It works perfectly with Firefox 3.0 but to make it work you have to change two settings in about:config to keep Firefox for checking for extension compatibility: it's really easy: instructions on how to do that are here: http://lifehacker.com/355973/make-your-extensions-work-with-the-firefox-3-beta

OpenBook

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The lat 2 posters are absoluely right. Multiple features are missing from this "update" to OpenBook. Another poster on Mozillazine did a very nice comparison screenshot: pic The new OpenBook rates 1 star but since the old version was stellar (haha) I'm still giving it a good rating. I'm also going to contact the developer b/c these reviews are not necessarily the best place to post problems.
