Edit Bookmark Plus

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Thank you for creating this add-on. Finally a successor to OpenBook. It would be nice if the users are able to also edit the url.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.0).

In Firefox 4.0 RC 1, it doesn't respect the switch to tab feature. These urls are prefixed with moz-action:switchtab,

BookmarksToolbars

Good, not yet perfect Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Hi,
I like this add-on and would be very happy if it will be possible to show only the icon and the name of the bookmark as tooltip like Smart Bookmarks Bar ( https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/4072) does. Setting the bookname to be empty shows the url and not the description which doesn't help in some cases.

Thank you

Bookmark All

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This was a very handy extension for me in Firefox 2 which allowed me to move all open tabs quickly to the bookmarks with a shortcut. Any chance to get it updated for Firefox 3, please?

Hide Web Content

Interesting tool, needs improvements Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Hiding the page content using this fast ways sounds promising. A few problems I found:
- http://www.welt.de/ - One ad is still shown after moving the mouse somewhere else.
- http://en-us.www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/2.0.0.8/whatsnew/ - The footer is still visible.

Proposals:
- Show if hide mode is active or not.
- Use the button for enabling or disabling on all tabs.
- Also hide the location bar content.

Infex

Nice, but... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is a nice extension, you can choose the infection rate for a country or world-wide. Unfortunately, there are only a few countries with the data. I wouldn't install this extension, but bookmark a page with these data.

Web Filtering Toolbar

Advanced search tool Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This extension lets the user search for HTML elements which contain a search string. The user can also increase the range of shown elements by increasing the tolerance which represents the number of parent nodes shown. It doesn't manage content loaded by Javascript yet. One error in console, but haven't seen a problem:
Error: document.getElementById("botonmas") has no properties
Source File: chrome://slicetoolbar/content/slicetoolbar.js
Line: 557

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0). 

ThunderBrowse

Easy access to links, works as described Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This extension makes the life with Thunderbird easier. Links in mails and newsgroups and the rss urls can be opened in Thunderbird itself. Middle-clicking the links opens them in the default browser (but can set another in the preferences). Also the title of the Thunderbird window can be changed to the title of browsed page. The autocomplete function which only works in the extra browsing window needs some useability work. Furthermore, a throbber or statusbar ui showing that the page is loading can reduce confuion if the page needs long to load.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0). 

AutoPager

Makes browsing galleries easier Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The automatic loading of the next page when the user scrolls down enough is very handy, so you don't have to click to much (especially ennoying in galleries with three digit numbers of fotos). Also, you can see at the end of a Google search list already the list from the next page (and probably better links).

The documentation for normal people could be improved.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.5.6.4).
