My Reviews

Back/Forward History Tweaks

Does the job but annoying pop-up Rated 4 out of 5 stars

5 stars for the core functionality. -1 star for the popup that shows no matter what i'm doing - watching a movie, playing a game, you name it. It's not that important for me to know that this addon has been updated! This option should not be on by default unless it can somehow avoid full-screen activities (which I doubt is possible).

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

New Tab Override (browser.newtab.url replacement)

It Just Works Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Not much else to say about it, really. A very nice, small & lightweight addon that does the job!

Another Restart

Not a big fan of the menu icon Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It does the job, thanks for creating it! I would prefer it if there was no icon next to the menu. I'd also like to disable the hotkey but the addon complains if I remove the key.

Advanced Locationbar

Highlight domain like Locationbar² did Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Please let me highlight the domain. I like it bold & red. Locationbar² had an awesome setting for this.

Locationbar³

Would love to see more of the Locationbar² features Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Good effort, but the name is misleading. It does only one of the things Locationbar² did, dropping several features that made me love the old addon. I loved the domain bolded and shown in red, with the rest shown in black. I loved the graphical separators instead of forward slashes. The only thing this replacement does is linkify the segments, but it does that well.

Locationbar²

Goodbye Locationbar², you'll be missed Rated 5 out of 5 stars

No longer works in Firefox 44. Hoping Dao might find the time to update it, but it's not looking likely...

Tree Style Tab

Please please PLEASE get it reviewed and signed before FF v44 comes out Rated 5 out of 5 stars

FF 44 will disallow overriding the signing preference, and this addon will be impossible to use...

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.16.2015113001.1-let-fixed). 

Tab Groups

It seems to work! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you for this. It would be very difficult to use a browser without the ability to switch contexts so effortlessly.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1). 

Noise Control

No longer needed but thank you! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Firefox 42 implements this natively, at last. Thank you for filling the gap in the meantime!

Show InOut

Would be cool if it treated all emails in Sent folder as outgoing Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It would be easier than to have to configure all of my "From" addresses. By default this addon gets most of my Sent emails wrong, thinking they are incoming. If it's in "Sent", it's outgoing!

Search as list

It does the job! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I can finally get my search results unthreaded and sorted the way I want, with zero clicking! Definitely 5 stars for making this possible.

There are some rough edges, the options dialog isn't super clear but gets the job done. Disabling the threaded view only works if you select the "Thread" column to be visible - a bit funny that it has to be visible in order to make it redundant, but hey, I'll accept anything to get rid of the threaded view!

Kudos to the author who fixed a small issue pretty much the same day when I first reported it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1b). 

Auto-Complete On

Slows down Amazon.co.uk to a crawl Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I've been suffering exceptionally slow Amazon page loading for a long time. Turns out to be caused by this addon. Create a blank profile. Open 7 different tabs with Amazon products. Restart, then view all tabs to force them to load. See how long it takes before Firefox stops using CPU. Takes 13 seconds on my PC. Now add this addon. It will take FORTY seconds.

NoSquint

One of my mandatory installs Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Extremely useful. Works very well, no problems at all with it. Only issue is that if you become too dependent on it then you might be totally stuffed when Electrolysis comes out, as this addon isn't yet compatible.

Multifox

Works really well! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Cannot believe not a single browser has this built-in. It's a must have feature for anyone who has more than one user account anywhere!

Only comment is that I wish I could make it more obvious when I'm in a certain profile, as it's too easy to forget. I tried giving profiles really long names, but Multifox won't grow beyond a certain width, sadly.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.1.0.1-signed). 

YouTube High Definition

Awesome! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The extra features are cool too. I wish the autoplay disabler was based on whether the tab is open. If I click a related video, I want autoplay ON. If I open a related video in a new tab, I want autoplay OFF (for the background tab). Currently it's a lose/lose either way :)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (33.7.1-signed). 

YouTube Center

Most features are currently broken. Rated 2 out of 5 stars

It used to be great, but almost none of the features work in the current YouTube. Pity.

InlineDisposition

Just what I needed! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Not once since installing this addon was I forced to download something I wanted to just view. If I want to download, I just Alt+Click it, but alas this requires an about:config tweak due to a weird decision by the Mozilla team to disable this behaviour by default... there's always Ctrl+S though if you can't Alt+Click!

Manually sort folders

Seems to do the job nicely! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Granted, it's something that's only needed because nobody can be bothered to implement this in Thunderbird directly, but hey, it works! The addon is also nice and polished, it's actually pleasant to use. Thanks, Jonathan!

HashColouredTabs+

Sadly, this no longer works Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It doesn't work with TreeStyleTabs, and it doesn't work with a clean profile in Firefox 29.

Abstract Black

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Looks nice but is cut off on the left on my 2560x1440 screen.
