Mozilla Labs: Prospector - LessChrome HD

A couple things Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Interesting idea. I'm honestly not sure that I'll keep it for long, but I'm sure others will. As others have said, it stops the Firefox button (orange) from working when maximized. If I "restore" the window it does work.

Also, I would prefer it show the location bar when I mouse over the tab bar "area", not just active tabs. If I have one or two tabs open, I have to aim for them to get the location bar back. If the whole bar triggers it, then I just toss my mouse to the top of the screen and it works.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1). 

Locale Switcher

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Would be nice if there was a link right in the addon for other language packs (or even the description) rather than having to read a review that included it.

Otherwise great, will help me test my own addon localizations. Thanks!

Tamper Data

Great extension - thank you!

Certificate Patrol

I like it, but one suggestion would be to make the dropdown notifications specific to the tab they were generated from - using something like gBrowser.getNotificationBox(gBrowser.getBrowserForDocument(aDocument)); -- It's a little annoying getting the notifications when I open a bunch of new tabs (when I'm not looking at those tabs yet)

Restart Firefox

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great - this should be a standard Firefox feature, so thanks for adding it.
