My Reviews

SeaTab-X-2

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thankyou.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3). 

Easy Youtube Video Downloader Express

Perfect Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works great. Easy and fast.

I really do like the no ads feature. Thank you.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (7.24). 

FlashGot Mass Downloader

Too Complicated Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Wasted some time trying to figure it out. Looked at the webpage for it and still could not download anything. Too complicated. Removed it and installed Easy Youtube Video Downloader Express, as claimed it is easy and works.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5.5.98). 

Simple Clocks

Outstanding Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have used this and FoxClocks at different times. They are very similar and produce the same results.

I just switched from FF & TB to the SeaMonkey internet application suite and found that FoxClocks does not work in SeaMonkey but Simple Clocks does.

I do agree with emil9216, lose the "Clock(s):"

Otherwise, Bravo.

Slim Add-ons Manager

Works Great Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works in Seamonkey. I used to use Cleanest Addon Manager but it doesn't work in SeaMonkey and FF is getting too much like IE and Chrome.

NoUn Buttons: Unmerge Back & Forward Buttons/Menus

It works, mostly. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I wanted to separate the back and forward buttons, it does that. Also wanted to put the throbber back, it doesn't do that on the default theme, it puts throbber icon on LavaFox but it doesn't do anything. Option to remove stop/reload buttons from url bar is a nice touch. Not sure about other buttons since I am not using them. Also the only colors on menu button are black or white. I tried the Pale Moon browser, but it crashes everytime I click a button on it.

Forecastfox Weather

FF removes it from the toolbar. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I've been using this for years and now (after FF update today, 5/6/14) FF keeps removing it from the addon bar (I added the extension to get the addon bar back). Still works great but I have to keep putting it back on addon bar. FF 29.0, Kubuntu 14.04.

Vertical Toolbar

Can not add shortcuts to it. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

After todays (5/6/2014) FF update I can not add any shortcuts to Vertical Toolbar, including the ones FF update moved off it. Used to be five star until Mozilla messed it up by eliminating a couple of toolbars (I think that's what messed it up, anyway). Will be five stars again when fixed.

Video DownloadHelper

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works great. Thanks.

The Addon Bar (Restored)

Thank You Rated 5 out of 5 stars

First extension I looked for after update did away with the old one. Absolute necessity for me.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.1). 

Supertab

Add-ons Manager Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Add-ons Manager in the list does sound like what I'm looking for, but it's not there.

I'm using FF28.0 on Kubuntu 13.10.

I keep the Addons Manager as a pinned tab, but it doesn't show up in the list so I have to click it or use the keyboard shortcut (I finally memorized it, but forget to use it most of the time).

Thanks for the Addon

Supertab

Feature Request Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Please make it show the addons tab when it is open or if it is pinned.

I put this here because I couldn't find a way to do feature requests on the GitHub site.

FoxTab

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Installed 1.4.10. Still doesn't work, but interfers with other addons.

Restart Button

Works Perfectly Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works just fine on my machine. Using FF28.0, Kubuntu 13.10 & FF28.0, Windows 7.

NewScrollbars (aka NoiaScrollbars)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I like it. 5 stars.
Features I'd like to see: Background color gradient in Customizable v2 and the option of arrows for the buttons, with color and color gradient still applicable.
It's still five stars, even without those features.

Tab Kit 2nd Edition

Not good Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Is incompatible with Vertical Toolbar when using it in vertical mode.

I keep my tab bar on the left and my toolbar on the right. This is not possible with this extension. It glues the vertical toolbar and TK2-vertical together. I can have them on the right or left, but not right and left. This makes it unuseable IMO.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.10.4). 

DownThemAll!

Great Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is the best download manager I can find.

I had the size mismatch happen to me once. It was because the file said it was 3.9GB but it was only 3.6GB.
I found another source for the download and it worked fine. The file really was supposed to be 3.9GB. This may not be the source of others mismatches but it is worth checking when they get them. It might be as easy to solve as it was for me.

I also have no problem browsing the interweb while downloading. But I never download more than half-a-dozen at once (they finish downloading faster than I can add new ones).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.16). 

FoxTab

Does Not Work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This used to be a beautiful Addon. But now it simply doesn't work. No icon in toolbar. Clicking icon in statusbar or context menu does nothing. Keyboard shortcuts do nothing. This is in desperate need of updating. I am using FF 28.0 in Kubuntu 13.10.

Vertical Tabs

Good Addon, Except Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Good addon except it causes the bar at the bottom left of the window, that gives the url of link that is hovered over, to be dark with no text or text the same color as the bar. Kubuntu 13.10, FF 28.0.

Supertab

Excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great replacement for, and improvement over, LastTab. I was really getting tired of going to the tab closest to the one I closed. Now it goes to the last tab I was using. I like the longer list of tabs in MRU order. My opinion on making the list clickable is: If someone wants to click the list, why not just click the tab itself instead of putting in the extra step of calling up the SuperTab list?
