Net Usage Item

Works really well, should have compatibility Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This addon works very well for displaying quick information about your ISP's net usage!
If you are able to understand how it parses the webpages, you can even add a new ISP to the list.
The one drawback is that the author doesn't submit the newest versions to AMO, forcing people to go to an external website and get a version which has not been reviewed. This also means the version on AMO is often incompatible with the latest version of firefox (as is the case now).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.337.1.1-signed). 

Certificate Patrol

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent add-on. Has improved in the later versions to be more discreet and fixed all bugs I previously experienced. Great work!

Unsupported, but still usable Rated 4 out of 5 stars

For those who are still having trouble with the direct image links (for example getting the &usg=... crap in the links, causing it to 404), you may need to make 2 changes to the javascript file, not just 1:
You MUST CLOSE Firefox or the file will not update.

Find "customizegoogle.jar"
In "\Documents and Settings\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\60esbr6h.default\extensions\{fce36c1e-58d8-498a-b2a5-66ad1cedebbb}\chrome\"
"C:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\60esbr6h.default\extensions\{fce36c1e-58d8-498a-b2a5-66ad1cedebbb}\chrome" for vista

Open the file with Winrar.
Find "javascript.js"
In customizegoogle.jar\content\customizegoogle\

Drag and drop the "javascript.js" file to your desktop
Edit "javascript.js" with notepad or similar.

change (approx line 31):
var googFonts = selectAllNodes(document, document.body, "//FONT[contains(@color,'#008000')]");
var googFonts = selectAllNodes(document, document.body, "//DIV[@id='ImgContent']//FONT[contains(@size,-1)]");
(if you have already done this you will probably be getting &usg= in the page links)

change (approx line 42):
var urlmatch = googLinks[x].href.match(/\&imgrefurl\=(.*?)\&h=/);
var urlmatch = googLinks[x].href.match(/\&imgrefurl\=(.*?)\&usg=/);

Save the file.

Drag and drop the "javascript.js" file back into the Winrar window.
Winrar will show a small window, click OK.

Open Firefox and try a image search, It worked for me :)

(big thanks to kadusa, SomeOtherDude, and Glav for actually figuring these out, I just put them together)
Wouldn't it be nice if someone actually developed this extension.

Hide Caption

Lots of potential Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This addon has a lot of potential, and was exactly what I was looking for to get rid of the titlebar.
Unfortunately it seemed to have conflicts (possibly with TabMixPlus) so that the tab bar got a bit messed up. As it stands, I would recommend "full screen for firefox" by KrickelKrackel instead. That extension isn't quite as good at placing the minimize, restore, and close buttons, but it leaves my tabbar alone.
Keep up the good work, and this addon could become really popular!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.3).
