if all the proxies are blacklisted from desirable sites, wtf is the point?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.1). 

Proxy Tool

questions/doubts Rated 3 out of 5 stars

A few things;
1. I'd like it to default to via proxy = ON and user agent spoof = ON for each new session/tab/window, and

2. If i right click the status bar icons for 'clear cookies' and 'clear flash cookies', there are dialogue boxes that inform me how many of either kind of cookies have been removed.

That is not the case if i click 'delete evercookie'. There is no response from the extension. How can I be sure that that feature actually works? I'd like a response dialogue informing me of exactly what locations the evercookie/s was/were deleted from. Or at least how many have been deleted, even if that number is zero.

3. Very important that the proxies not be transparent!

4. If I use the proxy checker they recommend, their proxy gets detected. If I use any other proxy checker/IP
trace tool, the proxy from Anonymox is detected and not the Proxy Tool one. That seems suss. And I would like clarification about it.

Excuse the no paragraph changes. some extension is blocking wysiwyg editing here


all is well Rated 5 out of 5 stars

delighted sockpuppets notwithstanding, thanks to the developer for addressing the problems. the update my deleted review reply email mentioned fixed them

missing review from before the update Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Developer, Mozilla please INFORM ME IF REVIEW DOES IN SOME WAY NOT CONFORM TO GUIDELINES. It is disconcerting to receive email notifying me of a reply to my review, and then to visit the site and find the review is inexplicably gone.

The following review, posted 27 Mar, disappeared for reasons unknown.
[As the problem is now supposedly fixed, I will rate as neutrally as possible]


WTF indeed. Also do not want to have to register for support. Something has gone very amiss with the Mar 26 update. The labels in the tabs are no longer legible.

It seems the home page comes up OK. New tabs come up OK. All other tabs are illegible as per https://imgur.com/rJsnPjU

Also, the link to the given for previous versions appears to be broken. That was https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/1368/history/

Where to find old versions of this extension is here; https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/colorfultabs/versions/

Please note that the most desirable version to roll back to his missing. The last one we had, 17.7, is not there. The next most recent available is 17.6, which has attracted complaints about adware.

W T F . A maze/quagmire of grrRRR

ADDENDUM I rolled back this extension to version 17.6, and experienced a return of issues that I had thought were caused by TabKit. In fact the update of colorful tabs to 17.7 must have resolved those issues. The problems were:
1. moving a tab caused all tabs between the place of origin and the destination to move far across to the right in a slab so that the sidebar had to be widened radically for them to be accessible again
2. the cross on each tab that should close it didn't work. tabs could not be closed

Stop YouTube Autoplay

SmartVideo For YouTube is also not working Rated 5 out of 5 stars

this extension used to be great. 5 stars to compensate for those who don't read the notes
SmartVideo For YouTube is also not doing the job since the update to 19.0.2.


a bit sloppy so far Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The English is not good in the description when the "www.tran" pane/frame is open. The red 'close' cross didn't work. They suggest we let them know our impressions, but don't provide a link; nor was I able to copy/paste the name from the pane. Fvcking flash. I hate it.
So far, I have not tried translating anything; my experience was simply that of opening the pane by accident and not being able to close it again. No reason to doubt the quality of the translation.
While the pane was open, I did change the settings for languages to be translated from. I didn't like the fact that the only languages provided on clicking the arrow were English, German and Other, All other languages were an extra click away, and so greyed-out as to be invisible.
So I've tried it again, and this time hitting the close button left the Tran pane in place and closed my tabs sidebar. Compatibility problem. Regrettably I will have to remove this addon.

The One Rated 4 out of 5 stars

this is the theme for me. i wasn't able to solve the narrow bookmarks menu problem; if not for that i'd give it 10 stars out of 5 for its extreme beauty. i am grief stricken to have lost this precious theme with the upgrade to ff4. might just give up the internet for a while, till our designer is able to upgrade :) if he were to notify us of his non-intention to do so, i'd be forced to throw away my computer and bash self on the head hoping for amnesia to cure the anguish.

several problems Rated 1 out of 5 stars

after a very long elimination process i have isolated this addon as the cause of the view-> character encoding menu malfunctioning such that all no charsets were listed and therefore no options were available. because this was one of my least favourite addons for other reasons, it was one of the last i tested, which meant that it took a long time to find the problem, which has caused me to hate this stupid addon even more.

i agree about the 404 hijack. what gall. completely unnecessary. and as for turning it off via prefs in a whole separate application, who the hell do they think they are kidding? i have not tried this. maybe that's not actually the way it has to be done. if seems too unbelievable.
the addon is quite fallible. i wanted to get something from a certain site that opened up it's view-online video options in a flash window, so the vid choices were subsets of an already existing flash thing. and orbit couldn't get any of the vids from this. that definitely needs working on, if it's possible.

the interface is ridiculously elaborate. i just want something simple and fast.

all go or all stop Rated 1 out of 5 stars

i've got a prob installing extensions atm and thought blocksite might have something to do with it. but when it came to disabling or uninstalling it, this was impossible. everytime i'd shut down ff it would be right there as if it hadn't even noticed me tell it to stop (disable from within the addons list) or leave altogether (uninstall).
so i tried to get it to accept my homepage, which it was blocking, and all the extension add-on pages i was trying to work with to install new addons- but blocksite wouldn't accept these sites even after i whitelisted them. even after i restarted ff each time. it just seems frozen.
so then i noticed that the whitelist list is the same as the blacklist list. it can't tell the difference. so i removed all the desired sites from the indiscriminate list, and still couldn't get access. now, i have managed to stop block site from doing its totally without finesse thing by unchecking all its options within the app itself rather than from the addons list you open from ff.
well, i really really do want this function that block site is supposed to perform, but i really want a function that actually functions. at the moment this addon is horrible. at least for me. maybe it's an incompatibility prob.
