My Reviews


Looks promising... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I like what I see with the addon, but as already reported, it presently (2015.02.14) messes with the Menu in Firefox 36. Instead of the Menu dropping down fully, only a minor part of it displays. Quick as I disabled Switchy (thanks for making it restartless!), the Menu displayed normally again.
*apologies if i overlooked a report location preference other than here*

Color Text Compose Buttons

Awesome + request Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is an awesome addon. #appreciation to the author!
Like another user here, I too would like to have more specific customizing options regarding individual buttons/icons appearing in the toolbar. Or perhaps at least a "wrap" option?
One reason for me is that 3 other addons that i use also place buttons in this toolbar on the top row. With those and this addon's buttons, in order to view them all I have to have a impractically wide Compose window open. Narrowing the window results in some buttons being non-accessible. There's additional room in the second row at least, but it can't be accessed or customized etc (hence, a "wrap" option might help?).
Thanks again for an awesome addon & consideration of our requests!
[btw, fwiw i'm running Earlybird (Aurora) v35 & have found no issues--tho i've not used every one of the advanced options e.g. MathType]

Search Site

Excellent! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

**update** (of prior version review)

Success!! Update version 3.4 makes Search Site addon work again for me with Ffox v 24(beta)!! Excellent.

Highly recommended addon (and developer!)

Symbol 2 Clipboard

broken with Ffox v24 ? Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Nifty idea, but unfortunately it breaks with Ffox v24(beta). When i click the icon, the expected popup balloon opens (to the default "Arrows" options). When I click on the dropdown character option button the popup goes totally blank. Nothing in the popup balloon, it's empty, and it stays that way when reopened.
I tried reinstalling it and sure enough, the Arrows option displayed, but clicking the dropdown selection option resulted in yet another blank/empty popup. :-(
(two stars = one for the idea & another that it's restartless!)

Vertical Toolbar

==review update - version 0.2.11== Rated 5 out of 5 stars

...as of version 0.2.11 (2012-07-11), VTb is back to viewable for me with Ffox 16.0a1 (2012-07-11)!

kudos for the quick & timely update of a nice addon --especially for wide screen monitor users and/or multi-addon/button power users! :-)

(note: I don't use the "auto-hide" feature some have commented on, so can't say as to that specifically)

Vertical Toolbar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

ditto confirmed @kar_ram: stopped working with Ff16.0a1 (several days/updates now) :(

5 stars for it when it did work! Thanx--

Nav Bar on Title Bar

regarding Nightly builds Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I give this addon 5 stars because up until the past two days it was among my favorite tweaking addons. **Let me first note that the developer does not state that it should work with the Nightly (latest) builds**. So this is more of a headsup review. Because up until the past two days, for me it has worked flawlessly with Firefox versions 11 and 12.0a1. Now it doesn't crash or cripple Ffox, it simply no longer puts the toolbar up where it was putting it. Granted, a coming Nightly update may correct this, but for now it's mostly broken. I sure hope it can be fixed, either way!

Print Edit

Fantastic! Awesome! Thanks!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I can't begin to say enough about this addon; it's friggin' awesome!! Thank you DW-dev!!

Contrary to an earlier reviewer, I experienced no problems using it with Firefox v11.0a1 (and having about 47 other addons installed; running on Windohs XP).

[and coupled with NitroPDF and the option to Print To File, it's practically a no-brainer to get webpages as PDF files!]

Sweet! (+future feature?) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Sweet add-on! I count it among my most fav ones. (I was spoiled by having the "Highlight Text" addon that's since, no longer supported)

feature request: ability to customize colors (Highlight Text had this) :^)

issue: on occasion, after I've selected a section of text, then click Highlighter, the highlight extends beyond the precise selected text; undoing it and selecting/clicking it results in the identical behavior.
caveat: I occasionally drag'n'drop text from a webpage, so it could be occurring with those; I'll have to monitor it further; [apologies if I missed the "support section" for issues]

Again, nice add-on! I appreciate it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Kudos for including the ability to Rotate * and for informing me how to do that! *
Any chance of getting a Rotate button(s) added in like the Zoom ones? :-) Thanks~
I highly recommend this addon! A "must have" for image emails.

Restore Control

Nice addon-- but... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I liked this addon immensely with Ffox 3.6 (5 stars) --but it appears to need a mod for 4.0. I tested it with a compatibility over-ride, and while it basically worked at preventing tab loading, it totally disabled the closed tabs feature (of TabMixPlus and SessionsManager addons), which it didn't with 3.6. Also, when trying to load unloaded tabs, rather than display the tab info, it shows "New Tab" instead (you can get back to the tab via the rt click drop down menu option).
I NEED this addon!! lol. Here's to hoping to get a mod for it quickly!? --thanks

Image Tools

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Any possibility/plans to make this Work with: Thunderbird (email) as well?! Please, please?! ;-)

among my favorites (w/one request) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Being at that stage in my life where getting regular pictures of my grand kids via email happens, this has become one of my favorite addons. Nice work and most useful!

*As requested by others, having an option to rotate the images, or even better, to auto-rotate them in the slidehow, would make it all the better --seeing as how the present conflict of digital cameras using jpg EXIF metadata info for landscape vs portrait orientation is ongoing ;-)

NumExt - Numbered Tabs

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

** update **
In my first review I mentioned not being able to check out all the functions because of a hotkey conflict. Well, DOH! Apologies for not reading thoroughly enough!
***** And so an update to 5 stars here! ***** You can access the NumExt additional features via the "Tools" menu. Super! :)

A question I have now is: should NumExt save the colors assigned when Firefox is restarted? (if not, if possible, this would be a nice tweak)

Also, a nice feature would be the ability to hotkey to the last/end tab (for when more than 17 tabs are open). Even if the hotkey Alt+9 was designated for that tab (rather than 17). As I recall (?), Firefox designates Ctrl+9 to go to the last tab if more than 9 are open.

Thanks again for a very enjoyable addon! Apologies for any negative effect from my first post.

NumExt - Numbered Tabs

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great idea! I use scrollable tabs and was always finding myself having to count through them to connect the number each was --argh! Now this does it for me. Kewel! And I often have way more than 9 tabs open, so the option to at least hotkey to like 8 more of them is a bonus.
Like another post mentions, I would like to see a hyphen " - " after the number. Or perhaps either a "." or a " ) " or a combination e.g. 24.)
I'm sure with usage, this will be less of a factor but it still seems like an optimal idea.

Also, as a heads up, the hotkey needs to be customizable/user definable. Not only does Alt+X conflict for me, so does the only other option, Alt+Z. [Alt+X opens the install add-on window; Alt+Z opens the Sage add-on sidebar.]
Optimally, I'd prefer either a context or icon option. Hence why I could only give 4 stars --I can't get to the other options to try them. :(
Thanks for taking my feedback & for the helpful extension. :)

ditto what ben h-e said--

sweet! an improvement i can think of would be to increase the limit on the links it works on; seems it does up to 30 because there are many longer lists out there.
