My Reviews

Zoom Page WE

Great, except for the toolbar icons Rated 5 out of 5 stars

If I choose to show the zoom level the toolbar icon shows only the number 10 instead of 100 for the zoom level. It's also not aligned properly with any other toolbar icon, it looks out of place. For now I just disable the zoom level to the default icon, unfortunately the black % icon is barely readable using the new built-in Firefox dark theme. Hopefully there will be an option to change the color to white.

EDIT: The issue with 100 being cut off was was due to a font setting in my userChrome.css.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.1). 

Foxy Gestures

Pretty good Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Not a bad replacement for FireGestures. Only issue is it doesn't honor browser.tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent,FALSE so all new tabs end up opening beside the current tab, not at the end of tab row. Wish it was consistent with the rest of the browser.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.6). 

Pinboard

Almost perfect Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The main issue with using this addon over the pinboard bookmarklet is that the new tagging tab that opens sticks around even after you've already tagged your bookmark, so you're always doing an extra step, which closing the new tab. If you are bookmarking a lot of sites in row it's kind of annoying. I still keep this addon as the pinboard bookmarklet is not able to bookmark some sites like github or even the mozilla addon site.

Pinboard+

great Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This would be a better pinboard addon if it saved my API token between browser restarts. Otherwise a great addon, nice and clean.

Skip Cert Error

Great Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Regarding the last review from griffin_, his advice is only correct if you don't know what you're doing. For the rest of us who manage many devices in our networks under our control which use self-signed certs this addon is fantastic. It removes the constant annoying errors to devices I manage on a day to day basis. Only problem is this addon no longer works as of Firefox 46 beta1.

SoundCloud Downloader - SoundGrab

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Addon works great. Unless you're running Firefox 33 and above, crashes Firefox within a few seconds of opening soundcloud.com

Nav Bar on Title Bar

Great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Seems to mostly work in Firefox 28 beta. Except as soon as I customize anything on my toolbar and click done, everything shifts up and gets mangled. I have to deselect "Navigation Bar on Top" and select it again in order to restore everything. Restarting the browser works too. Anyway very buggy at the moment.

Minimum Font Size Hotkey

Doesn't work Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great, just what I was looking for. Unfortunately CTRL-SHIFT-O doesn't work. Using Firefox 28 beta.

FEBE

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent, been using it for a long time. Just upgraded to version 20b1 and it hangs on extension backups.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (7.1.0.1-signed). 

Dropbox for Filelink (Broken)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This would be great if I could get it to work. After I submit my dropbox username/password it just sits there. I currently have no issues with UbuntuOne in comparison.

Context Search X

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great! Only problem is it opens two tabs for every context search I initiate. Had to disable it and find an alternative for now.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.6.8.1-signed). 

Mozilla Archive Format, with MHT and Faithful Save

Awesome Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent! I just wish I could disable that yellow popup bar every time I open an archive.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.4.1-signed). 

FindBar Tweak

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great addon but buggy. If you start the browser maximized and then restore the window after opening a few tabs, toolbars & tabs get cut off. The window doesn't restore/wrap the browser elements properly. Using windows on a clean profile.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.5.1-signed). 

Brief

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great. Although it doesn't work properly with Firefox 9.0b1. You can't mark articles as read and links won't open in new tabs.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5.4.1-signed). 

Quote Colors

Great addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Just upgraded to Thunderbird 8.0b2 and it no longer works, even with compatibility reporter. Hopefully we'll see an update soon.

FLST (Firefox 4+)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This would be amazing if I could get the same functionally cycling through tabs while using the mouse wheel. It's the only feature I ever missed in Opera that has never been recreated in any other browser.

Tab URL

Keywords Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent add-on, it's become quite useful. The only issue I've encountered is it doesn't know how to deal with keywords. Typing "g" (my google keyword) with a search term then pressing ctrl+enter I get, "The URL is not valid and cannot be loaded."

New Mail Attention

Windows 7 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Fantastic! I was hoping for something like this. Although in Windows 7 it doesn't do anything. What OS was this written for?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1). 

Qute for Thunderbird

Qute Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is the only theme I'll use for Thunderbird. I won't use Thunderbird 3.0 until Qute is available. The default Thunderbird theme is horrendous. I vote Qute be made the default!

Address Close Button

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A great simple add-on. This should be standard functionality. Although for me the red icons don't show up, they are blank. I can still remove recipients by clicking the empty space.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0).
