While I find GlassMyFox absolutely suited to my personal preferences, I just updated it to v1.2 today and found myself having to configure the addon from scratch, as it was mentioned on the release notes. So far so good, new options, new configuration window layout, but when I selected my previously used Glass tabs v3, it has now a very dim white text that's hard to read and gives entirely unnecessary eye strain. I selected each Tabs set, and found out that the developer remove the single set I actually liked. Basically, the old Glass tabs v3 has the high enough brightness and contrast of the current 1.2 Glass tabs v1 plus the highlighted active tab.
Please add this configuration back, I'm literally in pain now, as I actively use tabs, and I most certainly don't want to stop using this amazing work of an addon of yours.
EDIT: Basically, the current 1.2 Glass tabs v1 with a bright selected tab rather than a dark selected tab would be perfect.
EDIT2: Just uninstalled 1.2 and reinstalled 1.1.1, in which Glass tabs v3 works as intended. Given that such version has already future compatibility, I will be using it and not updating for the foreseeable future. Do note that this doesn't detract from the overall experience at all, I won't take any other visual style, so congrats for your work once again :)
For instance, two popular sites that display 1-2 pixels more height on the address bar are addons.mozilla.org and facebook.com. I should add that I have small icons for the taskbar, other than that there are no settings changed. Regarding addons, which kind could affect taskbar height? I'm not using any tabs addon, merely an addon that restores page title to the titlebar.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.8). This user has other reviews of this add-on.
I'm sorry to have been unable to look properly into settings, and the selected tab visual focus settings were there indeed, both GMF tabs v2 and Alt. tabs v1 definitely fits my needs. Although, it should be noted that sites with SSL encryption increase the URL text area slightly so there are height differences between SSL and non SSL sites. That's a slight visual quirk that would be great to be fixed.
Overall, great addon and congrats on your great work :)
So far it's quite interesting, and the only thing I'd like to see in a future version is a somehow noticeable focus on which tab is selected, perhaps with a darker transparency tab selection.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.8).
Overall, nothing for from an amazing addon. Though, maxversion needs to be raised to include FF5.x.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (220.127.116.11).
This addon works great and is lightweight with no fuss, but there is no support for Firefox 5. Given the new development cycle of Mozilla, wider version support might be required, unless the developer is actively involved with the addon.
Great addon, does exactly what it's supposed to do. There are a few sites that do need to be whitelisted in order to function properly, but after doing that they work flawlessly.I do have one complaint, and that is the fact that Flashblock has a rather severe memory leak, using a very significant amount of system memory. When upgrading from FF3.6.x to FF4, there were quite a few addons that weren't optimized for FF4 and also had memory leaks of their own. I hoped this was not the case with Flashblock, but it seems a fix is in order. Until then, I think I'll have to enable this addon on a need to use basis.Please fix the memory leak please.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (18.104.22.168).
Ever since I found about this addon that I've been using it actively, and it never gave me any issues. Up until Firefox 3.6.x. Once I updated to Firefox 4, v4.8.6 started to be a very serious memory hog, making FF memory usage jump to 250MB right at boot (typical values are around 150MB) and just ate memory at a constant pace, until it used up all available memory. I tested each and every addon installed, and found DownloadHelper was the culprit.
Bottomline is that with the addon disabled, FF once again had a regular memory consumption and even got slightly snappier. I'll turn the addon on only when needed and keep it disabled for the rest of the time.This is a great addon, and should have this issue fixed as soon as possible.
EDIT: When going from FF3.6.x to FF4, DownloadHelper's icon is missing, but is easily restored through the toolbar customization menu.
Along with restoring a proper status bar with complete info, it also served unexpectedly as a 100% reliable alternative to Fission. It would be even better if the progress bars could be customized to use images as well.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2011.03.21.22).
Great addon. Works great, accurate indicator.
Only issue I had was after restoring a profile, Fission said it wasn't compatible with FF 3.6.13 (the same version it was installed and working in) but a reinstall of Fission solved that.
Congrats on this fantastic add-on.
Being able to customize the preview windows is great, but I have an issue for some time now. It happens randomly, but sometimes a preview window gets stuck and doesn't hide itself, making me have to restart firefox. Other symptom is just having the shadow outline permanently on the screen, restarting FF being the solution again. Using FF 3.6.10.
I find this theme very aesthetic, and even though some of my extras lose their visibility due to the fact their fonts are in black as well makes it almost impossible to read. Never the less, overall the theme is great and in my opinion only two things could be improved for now, the markers bar has each marker too clobe to the tabs which changes the feel of the theme, but more importantly is the page loading icon (a dot) which should be dynamic and not static.
Very nice job
