My Reviews

Imagus

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Functionality is great; it looks and feels much sleeker than my old standby, Thumbnail Zoom Plus. Good performance.

Unfortunately it seems to have a major memory leak. After a few hours of casual browsing, Firefox memory usage exceeds 2GB. Without Imagus, I'm usually well below 1GB, despite running many tabs and other add-ons. After testing, the difference seemed to be Imagus.

Another issue was that certain settings never saved unless I went into about:config and edited them myself. Maybe this FF version is not as polished as its Chrome counterpart (which I haven't used).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.8.14.1-signed). 

Puzzle Toolbars

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you very much for such a necessary Barlesque / A Better Firefox Add-on Bar replacement. This (like so much other) functionality was sorely missing from Australis.

I have a few suggestions for further refinement that I will put on GitHub.

Tab Utilities Phoenix

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Indispensable add-on. Best implementation of vertical tabs in any browser / add-on I've found. Thank you for bringing it back from the brink.

That said, today's Firefox Nightly brings with it the new, much-maligned user interface known as Australis, and it breaks Tab Utilities, along with many other add-ons. Here are the two Firefox Nightly build threads from the day before and the day of Australis landing:

Hope it's not too hard to fix! But I think many of us will probably need additional add-ons to get our Firefoxes back to working the way we like.

Tab Utilities

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great news! There is a new version, from a Chinese FF community, that works in FF23 and later (currently up to Nightly v26). See page 167 of the forum thread for links:

Tab Counter

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great at doing what it's supposed to, with a dash of customizability.

Omnibar

Great Spacesaver Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Omnibar is a key add-on that, along with others, helps me reduce all of Firefox's top-screen clutter to a single row.

I have two small suggestions.
1. I would like an option to reset to the default search engine after searching with a non-default one.
2. It would be nice to be able to wheel-scroll the search engines without having to hold Ctrl.
