Panorama Tab Group Name

Should be included in FF Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Why doesn't FF do this out of the box? Seriously.

UAControl

Good but annoying behaviour of the toolbar menu Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It seems to be the most useful user agent manager that I have tested. The only thing I find really annoying is the behaviour of the menu associated with the toolbar icon: the menu is only visible as long as you press the mouse button. When using a laptop and a trackpad this becomes extremely annoying. Most other toolbar menus work differently: click to open the menu & click again or select an item from the menu list to close it.

It would also be nice to be able to select a UA string from a list of current UA strings.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.3). 

HideImages

Doesn't show images when "load images" is turned of Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The addon let's you hide images on a page only after the images were loaded first. It won't show the images if you turned "load images" off. It thus isn't useful for showing images only for specific websites.

Greasemonkey

Usability Rated 3 out of 5 stars

While it is nice to have gm scripts show up in the configuration dialog there currently is no easy way to enable a script for a new url -- other than editing that script. This is annoying for generic scripts. What happens with the urls I added when updating a script?

Cookie Monster

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Please add a toolbar icon for ff 4.0. It seems the status bar as we know it is gone.

QuickFolders (Tabbed Folders)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A wonderful addon that works much better than the "favourites folder" view. The only thing I don't particularly like (but this was already mentioned in an earlier review) is that it switches from the "unread folders" view to "all folders" when selecting a folder with no unread mails. Maybe quickfolders could remember the original folder view or allow the user to define a default folder view to which it switches back when possible?

MultiColumn

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Excellent idea but it found it doesn't work for many webpages and I didn't particularly like the way the plugin arranges the text in columns which makes it necessary to scroll down the text twice. But the plugin tackles an interesting problem that becomes only visible when you use a wide monitor that could easily present a webpage in columns.

Cookie Monster

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent add-on & companion for noscript. The only thing I don't particularly like is that CM automatically reloads a page when changing its cookie permissions.

Hide Menubar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

An excellent plugin. The only thing I'm not sure if I like is that showing the menubar makes the content window shift downward and then back again. IMHO it would be slightly better if the vertical offset of the content window were adjusted -- I guess other people would find that disturbing though.

The useful parts can also be achieved with a set of bookmarklets.

Ctrl-Tab

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It's really amazing what this 14kb extension accomplishes. Unfortunately, I find the c-tab behaviour more confusing than the FF standard behaviour. The grid view + filtering is great though. Is there a way to have only the grid view?

It's All Text!

Works with asynchronous edit sessions! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I tried several extension of this type. This one looks quite good to me. It's the first one that appears to work with asynchronous edit sessions as invoked by vim --remote, or gnuclient etc.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6.8).
