My Reviews


Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very useful and well done extension.

There is a non-documented feature: this addon deletes downloaded files that are 1 day old or older when firefox starts.

The only thing this addon is missing is configuration where user can select the default folder where the files should be downloaded to. Right now it's hard coded to download into %TEMP%\mozOpenDownload\ folder
It also would be nice have an option to select how long the files should be kept before being deleted.

Still the addon deserves 5 stars without these features :)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.5). 

Smart Bookmarks Bar (Att)

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This addon, the same as the original has a bug, that removes last bookmark(s) from the toolbar (temporary) when mouse over expands a current bookmark and last bookmark doesn't fit into the toolbar. It shows an icon that there is more items, but when you move your mouse towards that icon, away from current bookmark, it collapses the current bookmark, moves everything in place, but the "hidden" bookmarks are now gone.

The bug is easily reproducible:
resize FF window just enough so all the collapsed bookmarks fit into the toolbar, then move mouse over one of the bookmarks, it will expand, moving the last bookmars beyond visible bar, then when you move mouse away, the last bookmarks will be gone.

P.S. it's not nice give no credit to the original author of the addon, no matter how cute you might be!
Minus one star because of the bug and minus second star because of no credit to the original author.

Extra Fasterfoxx

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This addon looks fishy. First all, if you visit author's homepage you'll notice that they are making cheats/hacks of some sort - that already slices any kind of trust to that person in half. Then when you look inside the addon, you'll see that it made so it's hard to understand - everything is in one line (hiding something?) - that kills the rest of the remaining trust...

Would not recommend installing this as it doesn't look like a legit addon.

Now Playing X

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very good addon.
There is a weird bug that leaves music icon (note icon that shows before song) in Windows Live Messenger's main window of your buddies. That icon along with the media title removes properly from WLM, but for some reason in main window of your buddies your account shows with an empty music icon (icon without title), while in chat window it also removes properly.

But it seems that if in nowplayingx.js replace:
this.sendToImClient("now-playing-x-live-messenger.exe", "\\0Music\\1\\0\\0\\0\\0\\0\\0\\0");

with this:
this.sendToImClient("now-playing-x-live-messenger.exe", "\\0Music\\0\\0\\0\\0\\0\\0\\0\\0");

this problem is solved..

I just discovered this addon while was looking for something else, and can tell you, this is a MUST-HAVE addon if your Firefox restores tabs on startup...
I have a "gamer's" PC, which is fast and very fast internet line, but still, it takes about 40-60 seconds for firefox to startup and finish loading 50 tabs. With this addon it takes 5 seconds and it's done!!!
The only issue I've noticed is that I'm using "Tab Preview" addon (which shows a tab preview when cursor hovers over a tab) and it shows blank/white page until tab wasn't opened. Would be nice if BarTab hand an option to load the tab content when mouse over it or something that would work with preview tab...

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2). 


Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This extension is quiet useful, however I'd prefer have an per-site or at least per-tab option to enable/disable automatic re-try...
4 stars because of missing that feature.

P.S. works fine with FF3.6 if override the version check with Mr Tech extension (or manually)

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This addon is a great idea.
It can replace bookmarks.

There is one little annoyance - you can't middle click and open selected site in a new tab. Middle click doesn't work at all.
Other then that, I found this extension very useful and practical.
For sure will recommend it to my friends.

Find In Tabs

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This addon is a "must have", but unfortunately it's not compatible with "Find Toolbar Tweaks"

Reload Plus

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Nice extension, quiet useful.
Though there is one issue:
it disables Firefox' native hotkeys for page reload with override cache:(CTRL+SHIFT+F5 (or CTRL+SHIFT+Left-Click)
When used that hotkeys page just refreshes as if you preset F5 alone.
Would've give 5 stars if would be for that issue.

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


Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This extension is from category "must have".
It does work fine with FF3 as long as you press CTRL key when saving the forms.
If CTRL key not pressed, it will save form specifically for that page, not for the entire domain.

I don't know what was behind the decision with CTRL bs, but it surely made rating of this great extension go down.
Hopefully the developers will address this issue and revert back to the old behavior in next version.

For now I've reverse CTRL key function:
if CTRL key pressed, it saves form only for the current page, if its not pressed, AF saves form for the entire domain.
I did so by replacing all instances of "event.ctrlKey" (no quotes) with "!event.ctrlKey" (no quotes) in autoformer.js

Search Synchronizer

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I found this add-on quiet useful in combination with SearchWP.
I'm not longer forced to use FF search toolbar in order to use quick "find on page" buttons added by SearchWP, Search Synchronizer automatically updates these buttons for me.
I'd give it 5 stars if this addon wasn't pretty much dead.

P.S. I'm using it with FF3, have no issues.

Unhide Passwords

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

When this extension is enabled and activated all your passwords will be revealed as soon as you click on them.
I'd prefer have an option on right click to show the password in active field, so only selected passwords would be revealed when I needed not always.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.2). 

Password Hasher

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on is from category "must have"
