Zoom Page

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It seems that the new version 9.0 has an annoying bug: it adds an unamovable large spage on the right side of my bookmarks bar. Please fix it!
Thanks!

1.8 and 1.8.1 - Using popup causes double action Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I use firegestures everyday, it is an indispensable extension for my browsing.
The last version (1.8) seems to have problems with the script I created that uses the popup menu: each action is performed two times. For example if I insert a text in a textfield, it is copied two times (NOTE: if I use the undo CTRL-Z function, the two text inserted are removed one by one), if I open a link, two tabs are opened instead than only one. Hope this issue will be fixed soon. Otherwise, how can I modify my scripts?
EDIT: issue still present with 1.8.1 update.
RE-EDIT: my issue is the same of id2test2 above, but the problem is not limited to loadOneTab only.
FINAL-EDIT: the version 1.8.2 seem to solve the problem. Thanks!

Is there an help forum? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Five star for this indispensable addon.

I'm writing to ask if is there a support forum where I can ask help for a script. I've weird difficulties with generatePopup api, maybe is there a bug?
Time ago the firegestures website allows to write comments and asking for help, but now that functionality seems has been removed.

Feature Request Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Simply my favorite gesture addon.
I've a feature request. It is possible to add a function such as:
FireGestures.playAlert(SOUND_TYPE)
that allows me to reproduce a sound (the function could provide some embedded "beeps") inside my user scripts!
Thanks!

Linkification

Good addon, but I miss e feature! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very useful addon for me, but for me it would be very useful if I could choose on which page formats enable it.
For example I could choose to enable it only for .txt files opened with firefox, but not for .html, .php, etc...pages.

Issue in Italian Locale Rated 5 out of 5 stars

@troypst
It is a problem of the Italian Locale. Delete all locales and references (in install.rdf, chrome.manifest and \chrome\locale\) leaving the en-US locale only.
This will give you access to the option panel (in english). With more investigations it should be possible to find the problem inside the italian locale files.
NOTE: the files are coded in UTF-8, so it is not a problem related to Italian accented characters.

EDIT: I found the problem. The Italian locale is referenced as "it-IT" in the chrome.manifest file, while the folder in \chrome\locale\ is simply named "it".
Rename the folder as it-IT and the option panel will work correctly.

Screenshoter

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very good ultra-light screenshot addon.
There are some thing I think should be improved:
- Add a smaller icon to use in the addons bar (the present icon enlarge the bar!)
- Add "save page as image" in the "Save page as..." menu.
- Allow to change key shortcuts: I can't use ctrl+shift+M because it conflicts with another function.

Zoom Page

Feature Requests and Bug Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Now, with the improvements of the version 3, this extension is almost perfect.
I've only a feature to request: double left click to "fast reset" zoom (that is... return to 100% zoom).

Another little feature request: improve graphics of the addons bar icon (especially, avoid the compact mode increase the height of the addons bar).

Perhaps a BUG:
When I use popup menu to choose the zoom factor, it is changed but not memorized, so the next time I open the page, the zoom factor is the previous choosen using + and - buttons.

lget

Need a bugfix with some locales Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very useful addon, but with recent versions of firefox, a bug regarding the option dialog appears.
The dialog opens, but the only content is an error report.
Here is the content, in Italian language:
Errore interpretazione XML: entità non definita
Indirizzo: chrome://lget/content/options.xul
Linea numero 35, colonna 1:
<dialog id="lget-options-dialog"
^

EDIT:
It seems the options.xul file can't find entities defined in locale file options.dtd. Could you fix the problem?

RE-EDIT:
The problem was due to the inability to read accented characters in the dtd file.

Problem solved converting the dtd file in UTF-8 encoding
All Italian users (and all users with accented characters in their localization) can easily fix the extension opening the xpi file with a zip manager (I used 7zip) and converting the file in UTF-8 with an advanced text editor (I used notepad2).

Add-on Update Checker

Feature request Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks for this extension that replace upadte notifier, that now seems discontinued.
Now that this extension has popups, the only feature I miss is a right click menu on the icon, with voices such as "install all updates" (without open addons page), "reboot firefox", install and reboot, "options".
So the icon could work this way:
- left click: check for updates
- right click: opens context menu
- double (left) click: opens addons manager (now performed by right click menu).
Five stars upon trust and for the good work!

Minimize Addon-Bar

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great extension, but with a Great deficiency: it don't show icons of the addons that has not been updated already to be used with the new addons-bar.
So my classic addons bar with seven icons has be transformed in the new fantastic minimizable tool bar with 2 icons only! Unfortunately, it is unseful with the loss of 5 addons.
PS: is it possible to reduce the minimum size of the bar at 18pt?

Gmail Notifier

Can't login anymore Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Don't works anymore for me. The update to version 0.6.4.3 don't solve the problem. Please fix it!

DownThemAll!

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Indispensable.
Is there a place where I can post feature requests?
I'd like:
- Two new renaming mask, that are 1) *pagetitle* and 2) *alt_attribute* (and title attribute), useful for downloaded images.
- A more customizable interface. I'd like to add/remove buttons in the toolbar, and organize my right click menu in download manager.
For example for me it's extremely uncomfortable that in order to clean the window I have to select all and then select cancel. Add/Remove segments is uncomfortable too...
I think personalization will help to make DTA more useful.
Thanks.

Abduction! - Webpage Screenshots Screen Capture

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I came back to previous version (2.026, that forced for FF 3.5 seems to work fine).
This new version seems much more unconfortable: in impossible to set color and output format on the fly, and I've some difficulties to select a little area to save (previously I simply create a selection square i a while, now it seems I've to enlarge and move an exixting square, but I've not understand how and where this square appears...).
A good news, instead, is that this new version don't open a new window but works with existing rappresentation of the page.
Is it possible to add a button?

Contacts Sidebar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The extension is very useful and comfortable, but I think it misses some feature:
- I'd like to choose "contacts from all Address Books" in the Address Book field (instead single address books only). It would be a very useful feature for me.
- I'd like to put it beside folder's sidebar instead than under it (with wide screens I've much more horizontal space, and I use many folder so the folder's sidebar is very hight).

Tab Catalog

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great addon. I preferred it to ctrl-tab one. Please update for FF 3.5. Thanks.

Custom Download Manager

vanished feature? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Good extension, very light and useful. What about "close DM when done" option formerly appearing in DM window?
It was very useful for me.
Thanks!
