Love it! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I actually love the latest upgrade. I think the groups were a great idea and I immediately started using them. It keeps the start page tidy and the clutter away and it adds to the usability. And the design looks fantastic.
I didn't use the text-only mode, so I didn't even register that it's missing. I use empty links to keep things where I want them.

Super Start is one of my essential add-ons, it can't be missing in my firefox. My thanks goes to the author.

How do I downgrade? Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This was a great plugin before v4. I used to have my dials in specific places with some blank spaces mixed in (yet to be populated), now everything is all smooshed together with no way of putting the dials in a specific place on the screen. Muscle memory is a great thing and taking away the users control over this is a failure. This used to be useful, now it's just like every other speed dial addon.

Please either bring back the old layout as an option or link me to a v3 build.

the ability to place the dials in a specific place will be back in the next next version.

thank you

Great addon, but I liked the text only version. I was looking for something else with the same functionality until I saw that you may add the text-only version back. The non-text version makes it too difficult for me to find the site I actually want to go to, I am just as quick using the bookmarks toolbar and hunting through the folders I have on there.

hi, thanks for your feedback.
the text-only mode will be back in the next version.

V4 is totally busted for me -- I went back to v3.6.3!! Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Also agree with k kretos, Peter2, membrane, noonwert & invokercd that this update broke Super Start. I loved the prior version and it had almost no problems, but now I can’t even get a functional page. I don’t care about the groups thing, but I can’t even get the basic setup to work any more!! All my lovely Super Star tabs are broken or blank! If I refresh them, they go away and never come back. I made the mistake of trying to totally delete them & re-add them, but only made things worse.

I don’t use the text-only option, but I don’t think it is smart to take away something that your fans were using before. That is just too, too Microsoft!!! I also don’t use groups and never will, as I hate it when developers add yet another layer to go down through. BUT as long as it is optional, I don’t care … too much, anyway. I would prefer it was set up as an intentional-intent vs. a drag-&-wind-up-with-a-group-accidentally type of thing. But I can live with that if we had the prior level of functionality we had with the v3.6.3.

And I HATE the upper-left-corner thing. MOST of my tabs look butt-ugly now and hard to recognize. And I have to set it individually for every tab, which just makes my previews & functionality disappear!!! If someone out there actually likes this feature, can you at least make it an option to select the DEFAULT = full-tab vs. upper-corner?

I would say ditto on the use Firefox icons, but you have broken all my icons. I used to get the default icons just fine and was happy with them — now even if I set the option INDIVIDUALLY for every single tab (it should be an option to set the default to which you want), none of them ever show up any more. NONE of them.

I also agree with Peter2 that you should not have deleted the empty links, as I used them for placeholders, too. You used to have “Show blank site” as an option; you should bring it back. Why delete functionality? My links are all screwed up even when I could actually see them before I refreshed. Now nothing works to retrieve them.

And k kretos is right … I can’t believe how slow it is, particularly when you tell it to refresh the urls …. Unbelievable. The new version is way too slow, no longer works, and lost all functionality. It just does not work at all for me.

I, like Peter2, came here to downgrade to the super wonderful V3.6.3 — at first it didn’t work for me either and I was left with absolutely nothing usable. You should at least let people return to the working old version. However, I got lucky as I had saved my …/superstart/ directory a few weeks ago, so when I disabled v4, copied over my saved superstart directory, and reinstalled (again) v3.6.3 all my tabs, icons, customization & FUNCTIONALITY came back!! And I have DISABLED auto update on your add-on off so I don’t get hosed again.

And I'm giving you a middle-of-the-road 3 stars, but only because I know you CAN do great things! But this new version really wasn't tested, nor do I like the changes you made even if it were to suddenly start working. :(

thank you very much for your review.

- the text-only mode (although you don't care :) ) will be back in the next version.
- "placeholder" will be added in the next next version, if all will be ok.

thank you

Update Rated 2 out of 5 stars

My opinion is the same as Peter2 - update destroyed the addon. Now it's slow, no empty spaces between thumbs. Groups are nice but work too slow.

To me, it looks slick but even more than before,now has upgraded animations and what suprises me that I could switch back to my old thumbnails with Next Snapshot button and also use those inside groups which I find amazing.
Adding as many sites as i can fit in this time.

Firstly, I do not think that people who dislike the new version should come here and immediately give Super Start a 1-star rating. I'm giving a 5-star to compensate that terrible attitude.

In fact, I am also disappointed with the changes we see in Super Start after the implementation of groups. It doesn't mean that I dislike and oppose groups. However, our lack of choosing a text-only option was a little unforeseen and actually disappointing. I waited for an official update after Mozilla's approval, and I thought my new Super Start page will look fabulous. I absolutely hate page thumbnails on any given start page layout, that was why I have been using Super Start so far. It is of course a personal preference, but I would appreciate if you could bring back the text-only, no-thumbnail layout option. Groups won't be a problem, since the group will be labeled as a text such as "Group 1", then when we click on that text, another "text" list will pop-up just next to the Group 1 text. Of course by "text-only", I don't mean that favicons should be removed. We would be lost without them.

In addition, group "boxes" seem to ruin most of the backgrounds, except the very-dark ones, which I rarely use. I don't think a shadow-like, or a darkish-transparent background is needed for a group box. You can understand what I'm trying to say by choosing a black background, you won't see group boxes and will still be able to recognise that group.

I also find number indicators next to the group names somehow distracting and ugly, and would like to opt-out them.

I hope you will look into these issues.
Have a good day.

New upgrade (v4) is terrible Rated 1 out of 5 stars

1. There is no option of removing the preview. (i.e the pic of the site). I preferred having to see only the links, and not the preview, as i have 25+ links.
2. After refreshing you have to press the next snapshot button to see the entire preview.
Do not upgrade. I have already uninstalled it.

Update: regarding pt. 1, I was talking about 'my favorite' button. If no button, there should be atleast an option for removing the picture preview.

New look is terrible, and now (after refreshing previews) it not showing the preview, just a piece of preview. It was one of my favorite addons, but now I remove it. Please go back old themes and look! (For developer, current preview: http://s15.postimage.org/7nwvk3r7f/Screenshot.png)

upd: hi cyberscorpio, thanx for quick reply, preview is ok now.

Is there a way to use black theme and old look (for ex. note list is unusable now)?

Regards.

Hi, please see this image: https://raw.github.com/cyberscorpio/superstart-help/master/v4/16-next-snapshot.png

updated:
1) note list is still available, please click the right most icon on the top bar to show it.
2) you can set the background color from:
- right click, select "options"
- enter the "ui customize" tab
- enable the customization
- enable the "background color" option
- then select a color.
- You can also set the text color (black / white)

Thanks.

A very very very good addon for firefox.
I use Superstart as my Startpage all the time.
I Have a little request for future versions of Superstart.
Would the Author please make an Update to Superstart so that it is possible to increase the
number of Minimum lines to 20 or 40 or higher under Display Settings if this is possible.
This would make it even better.

I Have seen the new Version 4 and this also looks very good in my eyes

Nice, useful addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I would give it 5 stars if it offered an option to open a link in a new tab. My thanks to the creator, cyberscorpio.

UPDATE: My settings prevented me from seeing that Super Start *does* have an "Open in new tab" option, so, 5 stars.
