Good news Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This is still an absolutely indispensable extension. I'm very heartened to hear that the developer is working on it again, as some of the buttons don't function anymore.
If there's one criticism I'd make, it's that you end up with so many buttons in the Customise window that it takes forever to find anything (although the extension Sort and Search Customization Dialogs helps with that). If the developer's website comes back, then in future I might use the main extension as a taster to find out what buttons I need, then uninstall it and re-install them individually from there.
One button I'd like to see would be one to close all empty tab groups, like the one on the Pano extension. If you save Tab Mix Plus sessions with empty groups in, they restore badly.
Can't wait for the update!
Sorry about the web site, looks like a currupted setting messed it up. But the custom button page is working again fine https://codefisher.org/toolbar_button/toolbar_button_maker/ I understand your problem of two many buttons making it hard to find them. That is a lot of what the Custom Button Tool is supposed to help with also. Also been considering adding something like "Sort and Search Customization Dialogs" and other tools into Toolbar Buttons to help with that too.
I also the problems with many buttons means I don't want to be too hasty to add more. I have a new simplifed bug tracker to help with that. If you add a request at https://codefisher.org/toolbar_button/request/ and it gets enough votes it will make it into the Custom Toolbar Button Maker, if it proves popular there, then into the main Extension. I am starting to use the CTBM as a test grond for new buttons, and using the statistics form that to decide what gets added. As such there is already a few extra button there, which will not be in the next release.

yosemiteg, am I right in thinking that you've contacted the developer and received a reply from him? We'd all be happy to know that this extension might still have a future and also to wish him well through whatever troubles he has.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0).
Seems Unsupported Now Rated 5 out of 5 stars
One of the very best add-ons, which I've had to keep alive by editing the version number time after time. Sadly now I find that the items on the menu accessible from the Bookmarks Menu button (a cleaner display, just the bookmarks and nothing else) don't respond to a left-mouse click any more. I post this fact here because the forum on the development site is down.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0).
The problem is: Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This is an excellent add-on, and it would be nice if the developer updated it properly. The reason it keeps declaring itself incompatible with Fx5 is that the maxVersion in install.rdf is actually set to 4. If you fix this yourself it works fine. The puzzling thing is why it will even install in the first place.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0).
