Session Manager

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is one of two addons I cannot do without (the second is TabKit 2 for vertical tabs). I've tried various other addons that purport to do what these do, but they weren't near as good. I've tried updating Firefox, but without Session Manager and TabKit2, I have reverted back to an older version. Somehow session manager was gone for a while (I don't know how long, but i'd get an "unavailable" when i tried to install it), but this morning Firefox said an update was available! I immediately got rid of the half-dozen useless session addons and reinstalled session manager! Finally, back to normal. (Unfortunately, the only sessions it had available were from Feb and Mar (it's now Dec.) But, that's OK - I'll live with it... and make new ones...

Tab Kit

Firefox is getting annoyed with me... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

No matter how hard they try to convince me to update my browser, I won't budge off Firefox 3.6 until TabKit is updated. Properly updated.

I'm still using 0.5.12 - the newer version is not as good as the original. (I hate the search box - there is absolutely nothing useful about it, and when moving tabs, it's not nearly as smooth or accurate as it is in 0.5.12)

I've tried a different vertical tab bar, but it just doesn't cut it. I'm stuck in the long-ago land of Firefox 3.6, never to see the wonders of Firefox "anything-else" (sigh) But, just like my Golden Retriever is patiently hopeful at every meal that a juicy steak will fall off the table, I keep waiting hopefully for an update that works...

Account Colors

Interested in expanding this???? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Would you be interested in creating a similar add-on for coloring the backgrounds, text, etc based on TAGS???? It would really be helpful for those of us who need a good way to make certain tagged emails stand out... and tags (colored text) just doesn't cut it...

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.3). 

Tab Kit

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Another user going back to the old version. The "search" tab is an absolutely awful idea... the first thing i did after updating was look for a way to turn it off. When I couldn't find a way, I went back to the old version. I'm all for trying new things, but at least give us the option to try it, don't force it on us...

Of course the writer is free to create any addon he wants, with whatever features he wants, but he also has to give the user a useful, usable addon if he wants it downloaded and used. This "feature" clearly was not wanted or needed.

How many users simply quietly disabled this addon and went to something else when they found they couldn't turn off "search?"

Considering only 1 of every 10 complaints is actually voiced, he perhaps should do some serious thinking about removing this "feature"...

Prior to "search" - 5 stars. After "search" - 3 stars...
