A BUG: the list of personas does not show up sometimes. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

(I have customized Firefox to have the menu options displayed)
Sometimes, when I do Tools, Personas, the list of available personas does not show up. And at other times, it shows up!

I do have many tabs opened and I do not know if it causes problems with this addon but I also have 8 GB of RAM and not even half of it is used.
Therefore, I have to assume that this BUG is directly linked to this addon.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.12). 

I have had the same experience, but I haven't been able to replicate the circumstances well enough to find whether the issue is in my addon or in Firefox itself. There does seem to be a combination of the number of open windows and tabs, and the content of the tabs, that causes the issue. If anyone can find a combination that always creates the problem, I'd love to hear about it. Thanks!

I have the latest version of this add-on (version 1.6) and the strange behavior is still present!
See "Strange new behavior. by MichaelIsGreat on January 10, 2012".
Nothing is solved with version 1.6.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.6). 

Sorry to hear this! Can you supply some more info, such as platform, Firefox version? Feel free to send me an email and we'll sort this out.

Strange new behavior. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Strange, with the latest 1.5, I notice that when I do Tools, Persona Switcher, I do not see all my personas that are listed on the Add-ons Manager under Appearance, I see only the word Default.

In a previous version, I clearly had the choice of choosing any persona that I wanted to switch to using Tools, Theme Switcher. It was fine this way.

1.6 just submitted for review. Thanks!

PERFECT. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

---First possible improvement.
When I do Tools, Themeswitcher and I move my mouse cursor over a particular persona, I would like to see this particular persona showing live on the browser as long as my mouse cursor still points to this particular person while I am in Tools, Themeswitcher. Simply because with several personas listed, it is hard sometimes with the names they have to remember exactly how they look.

---Second possible improvement.
When I already have displayed a persona (skin) on my browser, I would right-click on part of the browser (say the top right area of the browser) and I would select a newly available Context menu option entitled "Next Persona" and I would get the next persona displayed right away on the browser.

---A feature I love.
IN OPTIONS, THERE IS THE OPTION “AUTOMATICALLY SWITCH EVERY X MINUTES” WHERE YOU CAN CHOOSE THE NUMBER OF MINUTES X.

---Conclusion.
For me, this FF addon is PERFECT. It allows me to switch between my personas automatically at an interval of time of my choice.Many thanks to the developer. Keep making it available for the new versions of Firefox.

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

Thanks, and let me reply... I've asked and looked at the source code -- there doesn't seem to be a mouseover event for menu items in the toolbar, making your first request difficult. I'll continue to poke around as I think that would be cool functionality. I'll look into adding a context menu... And thanks again for using and reviewing this!

I found out how to do theme previews on mouseovers in the menu in Windows and Linux. Check out version 1.4.

---One possible improvement:
When I do Tools, Themeswitcher and I move my mouse cursor over each of the personas listed, I would like to see only temporarily, while moving my mouse cursor over a persona, the persona my mouse cursor points at directly showing on my browser (again, just temporarily), as sometimes I do not remember how one persona looks like.
