My Reviews

Tidy Favorites

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have been using this program for several months and absolutely love it. Just upgraded from the freeware version to the "Pro" version to gain a little more functionality and a choice of three more skins.

I have over 300 thumbnails/bookmarks and it manages them extremely well. The ease of use and full integration into to FF 3 makes it seamless, so it being an external program is not a problem for me. I already have so many FF extensions that start up is significant, so gaining this functionality without adding to the bloat of FF is cool with me. I am a loyal FF user and this program fits nicely into the convenience of ease of using my favorite browser. I especially like the feature of being able to focus in on a specific part of a web page when creating the thumbnail to make it easier to identify increasing the speed of accessing the web site.

I say great job and I am looking forward to some added functionality in the future. I submitted a few feature requests myself.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.71). 

Gradient iCool (Blue)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very, very nice. This has been my Firefox theme since I started using FF3 several months ago. I experimented with a few others, but always made my way back to Gradient iCool. Nicely done ! I use it with small icons mode.

BTW - Would like to see one with Red navigation buttons too. This way I could rotate between the two.

BloodSun

I too would like to see it updated to support SB 0.9

I have always been very fond of black and reds.

rubyFox

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Looks cool from thumbnail, but won't install on TB 2.0.0.17.

Gonna update ? Seems like no one wants to develop red themes.

Tiny Menu

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Well done ! I am going to be able to really "tune up" the tool bars now.

Keep up the good work !

MR Tech Toolkit

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works as advertised with Vista Home Premium, Sunbird V0.9.

BTW - HTML backup of bookmarks works fine for me.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.0.3.1). 

Thunderbird Biff

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Get error message in Sunbird V0.9 claiming it is not compatible. Uninstalled.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.8). 

GmailAgenda

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works as advertised. Very nice !

Wish there was a way to get it to appear the same as my selected FF3 theme. Meaning like Better Gmail 2 does with skin selection.

Well done !

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.2). 

New Tab JumpStart

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Uninstalled. Crashed FF3.0.3 when "Options" button is clicked in Addons>Extensions.

Using Vista Home Premium up to date.

previewr

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Seems to work well with pdf & html, but I could not get it to work with MS doc files.

Otherwise seems pretty good.

Thumbnail Expander

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thumbnail Expander works wonderfully. Great job !

It would be perfect if it added a selection to a right click menu to "open link in new tab and save as". Then you select the folder on your hard drive or use a predetermined folder selected from the options. I know this is a pure and simply demonstration of being lazy, but it would significantly reduce the steps to save the image if you decided after viewing it with Thumbnail Expander you wanted to download it.

BTW - Windows Vista Home Premium, Firefox 3.0.3 user.

Send Page By Email

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Works OK with Vista, FF3.0.3 and SB2.0.

Being an intermediate user I think this feature is good for those that want to save the page to their hard drive because if you click on .html file it is rendered from the HD and that OK. However, if I just wanted to send to someone for viewing purposes I believe I would just use tiny url or the original URL. IMHO.

CuteButtons - Crystal SVG

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works as advertised with Vista Home Premium, TB 2 and FF3.03.

Well done.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.0.2). 

TinyUrl Creator

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is my second comment, but this works very well for me. That is, version 2 available at author's web site. However, after using it quite a bit I do wish there was another button that was a save/mailto: function. This would make it perfect.

Mail Redirect

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works as advertised !

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.5). 

Folderpane Tools

Worked Great Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great Add-on ! Worked perfectly. As a newbie to Firefox and Thunderbird I don't understand previous comment regarding FF3 ? I have FF3 and TB2 and it worked fine. Anyway, good job !

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.0.5.1). 

Vista Mail

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great theme ! Perfectly matches my "Black Vista Home Premium theme" (Aero Graphite darkened) and Black Firefox theme.

Well done :)

Copy and Go

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

My first exposure to this feature was in Google Chrome and I loved it. Just yesterday I was telling a friend how I migrated to Firefox and how I enjoyed it, but I wish it had the Z"Copy and Go" feature that Chrome had. Don't know why I missed it the first go around while looking for extensions, but I did. It is a great extension and works as advertised. It saves a lot of time and most of all I appreciate it most for text urls. To the author, Great job !

Football Interactive Theme - track your NFL teams!

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I received an error when the theme/extension loaded explaining that Firefox could not load it. Something to do with Chrome. However, it did actually load.

This theme is way too busy for me. Lots of info, sure, but with all the animation, feeds, headlines streaming all about it was displeasing.

I thought I was doing to get a page that had an appearance of my favorite team, but instead simply got a tab/button that linked to the teams web page.

Lastly, it is probably impossible to test this with all the addons/extensions available, but I lost a major one and this is not worth losing functionality even though I am a BIG NFL fan.
