Mar Mod

Great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I noticed this add-on mentioned in a blog post for another add-on that only added icons to the menu items. Your add-on has that option (with my preferred icon set, Silk) with many, many other useful options disabled by default. I became scared when I saw the old review, but was relieved to see the update in February. Australis is supposed to disable the title bar, among other features that are making many people upset with Mozilla. Hopefully, they'll back track on this decision or provide a MOZILLA created add-on since the response to complaints of the dumbing down is that developers can bring back all removed features with with a little scripting. Whether Mozilla creates this add-on or a 3rd party, expect the change and hopefully the necessity to support it. I use Tab Mix Plus, but looking at the design vision from the UX team's mailing list, http://cdn.dropmark.com/29043/a7e0b3f0b6f317c3b284f0c02dd5f1acedc1df48/01.jpg it won't be needed much longer, and I'll finally be able to use the locked tabs feature. Keep up the great work and thanks for supporting us Nightly users!

FireFTP

Updated review Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've truly loved using your add-ons over the years. I don't know what I'll have to do if you stop development and I'm forced to go back to PenguiNet, SecureCRT, FileZilla, or similar. But I don't have to worry about that right now, thankfully! I'm running the Nightly 23a1 (2013-04-18) and I can use FireFTP fine. Servers can be added and connected to. File transfers can be initiated, etc. However, after visiting http://i.imgur.com/5BpUxrG.png you may see the annoying error that's constantly scrolling. Any ideas? Thank you for all of your hard work on FireFTP and FireSSH. These two add-ons are everything I've ever looked for in a client. No one program has ever truly satisfied me, yet your Firefox add-on's go above and beyond and I love them. If we can get this bug squashed, expect a donation your way for the trouble. Oh and as I suggested last year, let’s get a reliable pause button back. It's the only feature missing! On second thought, I've lowered my rating by one star to until a few concerns are addressed. Of course the ones, above such as constant breaking of listTree.js with nightly builds and a pause button. I know it isn't your responsibility to keep up with the nightly builds, but it what is it about listTree.js that likes to break with every update and can it be helped? That brings me to my third suggestion. I see on GitHub you uploaded a revision of listTree.js that includes a fix for Firefox 22, and presumably 23. I'd love to have that version but your developer’s link is incredibly out of date and I would have to build the add-on from scratch, lose auto update ability, etc. How great would it be to add a nightly development channel to your developer’s site where us bleeding edge type of guys can download alpha builds generated daily by a script? That simple addition would address all but the pause button and probably make a lot of people happy. Give it some thought, as it seems to be fairly easy to implement.Edit: Thanks for the response, I see you just uploaded 2.0.14 with the fix for Firefox 22. Although I'm on Firefox 23 (2013-05-08), I'll give it a shot and report back, possibly increasing my rating for FireFTP to 5 stars. Did you ever give any thought to the pause button or nightly developer’s channel? Most largely used add-ons have them and being as you literally own the market with FireFTP and FireSSH, it would be so extremely helpful. Most of the Firefox community has moved to Nightly builds since they are pretty stable and much, much, faster.

Edit #1: It seems the issue was fixed, mostly. After disconnecting from a site, and upon opening the connection manager, I'm presented with this error."Error message= TypeError: props is undefinedURL= chrome://fireftp/content/js/remote/remoteDirTree.jsLine Number= 25"Though only once and not a mass flood, so that's nice. I'm going to go ahead and bump my rating back up. Hopefully you can iron out the kinks completely soon. I feel like I've never had a fully working version of FireFTP, but we're getting there! Thank you Mime for all of your hard work!

Quick Maps

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It needs to load the map quicker than a simple right click, presently it does not. With a speed boost and the ability to quickly look-up directions to the address and you'll have a 5-star extensom

Show Password

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The best addon in its class!

Word Counter for Blackboard®

Great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great work CAFE team! This makes things much easier for me and my studies. This addon saves me the time of opening Office to count my words and a true time saver. Works great on the latest Nightly, 21.0a1.

ColorfulTabs

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A must have for every Firefox installation!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (16.2). 

FireFTP

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A must have addon for any FTP downloading. I see that as of beta version 0.90 FireFTP has had a pause button, yet I can't find it. Am I missing something? I used FileZilla for a long time against my will when multiple connectons were needed. I preferred to use FlashFXP otherwise. Your client gives me the threads I need. It looks and feels better than any standalone client and has replaced both of my paid FTP clients. Is there a nighty or beta branch available? Keep up the great work!

BetterPrivacy

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A must have addon for any frequent user of Flash. Is there a nighty or beta branch available? Keep up the great work!

DownThemAll!

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A must have addon for any sort of mild downloading through Firefox! I have been using nightly for ages and don't know what I'd do without it. A true showcase of the power and advantage of the Firefox addon showcase.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.15). 

Fasterfox Lite

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A must have addon! Do yourself a favor and disable the anonymous statistics from the addon options if you are worried about privacy. It was the first thing I did, to save on bandwidth. Is there a nighty or beta branch available? You should consider adding options (with disclaimer) to disable safe browsing and click to play. Thanks for the improved development on an abandoned app and keep up the great work!

P.S. In 3.9.9Lite at the least, the author addon's homepage lists "https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/9148" which returns a 404.

Bit Torrent WebUI+

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Everything has been working with Deluge for months. Thank you so much for taking over and improving on a dead addon. BT WebUI+ has a place in my cloud profile and is used on all of my machines. Keep up the great work!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.2.3). 

FireSSH

Tremendous! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great work! FireSSH has officially liberated my PC from PuTTY, SecureCRT, and PenguiNet. I never thought I would find something better than PenguiNet, but with time you have proved me wrong! Is there a nighty or beta branch available?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.90). 

Extended Statusbar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Ah, very nice classic mode is back! Thanks again Strahinja this is by far one of the most useful addon's for Firefox, especially for users migrating from Opera & the like.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5.1). 

Extended Statusbar

Suggestions.. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Please add an option to go back to the original look (which was much better, imo).

Also, adding an option to remove the "Extended Status bar settings" from the Tools menu, as I don't think anyone will be making enough modifications to the settings that going into Addons->Options would be to much work.

TIA :)
