My Reviews

All-in-One Sidebar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

One of the first addons I install on every Firefox. Creates a clean FF interface and makes accessing bookmarks, web info, tools, ... super convenient. It truly is an addon that considers the user and empowers them. This easily has to be one of the top 5 addons of all times. And the developer is very nice.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.20).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Close Tabs to the Right

Right-click a tab and select "Close Tabs to the Right" Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Some of my FireFox add-ons are no longer around/working. I needed to find replacements. It took me some searching Mozilla FireFox add-ons, but I found "Close Tabs to the Right". Just a nice simple add-on that closes tabs from the tab context menu. It is amazing how the little things make all the difference. Thanks!

Status-4-Evar

Adds status bar back to FireFox Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Mozilla removed the status bar in Version 4 of Firefox. "Status-4-Evar" adds it back on the Add-on bar. I use the "Download Statusbar" and removed it here with no problems. Status on the left, add-on buttons on the right. Nice. Thanks.

Go Parent Folder

Right-click and Go to a bookmark's parent folder Rated 5 out of 5 stars

"Go Parent Folder" add-on is a straightforward, reliable little tool that helps me quickly maneuver within my bookmarks on a daily basis. My bookmarks are well organized within folders and are displayed within the "All-in-One Sidebar". When I want to find bookmarks, I'll do a search in the "All-in-One Sidebar", right-click a bookmark and select "Go Parent Folder", and I'm positioned right on the bookmark within the expanded bookmark folder --- quick, efficient, and provides a nice solution to improve the usefulness of FireFox bookmarks without annoying the user. If you need to find a bookmark's location within all your bookmarks, "Go Parent Folder" will do it with a simple right-click.

All-in-One Sidebar

Save space. Be more efficient. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I like a minimalist browser UI, so along with "Tiny Menu" and selected "Custom Toolbar Buttons", the "All-in-One Sidebar" (AIOS) becomes my main focal point for tools and info within FireFox. Vertical space is a premium. I need the status bar at the bottom (FireFox version 4+ requires "Status-r-Evar"), tabs and a toolbar at the top, and everything else in "AOIS".

There are multiple ways that AIOS can help. First, there is the toolbar. It contains buttons to functions and other add-ons that I use often and I want to access quickly. Second, there is the sidebar switch, which with one click "AIOS" sidebar expands and collapses. And last, within the expanded sidebar, I can view info about FireFox, the current web page, or the output from various other add-on's. I would be remiss if I left this comment without saying, "AIOS" puts the user in control of their environment, it works flawlessly, and the author is very responsive.

Configuration Mania

Great way to Configure FireFox Rated 5 out of 5 stars

You can save oodles of time configuring FireFox with "Configuration Mania". My add-ons fall into 3 categories, FireFox configuration (how FireFox operates), presentation (FireFox appearance), and functionality. I have 45 extensions installed (thanks to "Extension List Dumper"), and the very first add-on I always install is "Configuration Mania".

"Configuration Mania" will eliminate the time used scrolling through the many FireFox config entries in "about:config" and researching them at "kb.mozillazine.org". It also goes beyond the "FireFox -> Edit -> Preferences". "Configuration Mania's" well organized user interface to FireFox config entries reduces the potential for errors, while increasing your knowledge of FireFox. It consistently works and looks nice. The UI has meaningful labels/descriptions, plus there is no need to remember or lookup up a FireFox config entry values (0, 1, 2) because they are there in plain text. Although you may not use "Configuration Mania" everyday, it will reduce the time necessary to change FireFox config entries, while reducing the potential for errors and teaching you something about FireFox in the process. There is no substitute for "Configuration Mania" --- the first add-on I always install.
