My Reviews

Super Tab Mode

Incompatible with another add-on Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I had to start Firefox in safe mode and remove it.
Probably incompatible with one of my other Add-ons.
Note: To start Firefox in safemode..hold down the Shift key while Firefox is loading. (No big deal)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.83). 

Wiktionary and Google Translate

Great add-on but... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Its a great add-on but if the little information window keeps popping up when you go to copy(Ctrl+C) and paste (Ctrl+V), turn off the option...."Enable hover-to-translate" or set its associated Control key to something other then "Ctrl". This isn't a bug, its just a nuisance.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.13.1-signed). 

Disable Add-on Compatibility Checks

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It worked, and thanks, I wasn't looking forward to going without my Tab Mix Plus for 2 months.

Bookmark All

Bookmark All Tabs still exists in Firefox Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Note that you can still use Ctrl+Shift+D to bookmark all Tabs in Firefox.If you forget the shortcut, open the bookmark menu section with Alt+B

Net Notes

Use of many Crtl keys would open Notes sidebar. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Every time I when to copy and paste something using the shortcut Ctrl+C, it would open the Notes sidebar.I looked for a place to report this bug but couldn't find one.

SmartSearch

Did Firefox adopt your idea? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Chris, I noticed that firefox now basically has Smartsearch built in. (Correction: Not true) I would love the lowdown on whether they adopted your idea or whether you both adopted it from another source. That sort of thing.

The below is my response to the Developers reply.

The Firefox feature that I came across is called “keyword searches” or “Smart keywords” which also involves going to another webpage and associating a keyword with its search field. This is the help page...http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-search-from-address-bar
That being said, I just discovered that it doesn’t provide the functionality that your add-on does. Specifically the ability to select a word on a page and use a dropdown list to choose from a list of websites. (Something I do all the time since it’s quick and doesn’t require typing or remembering keywords).

There is a strong chance that I’m mistaken and your add-on instead added functionality to an existing build in feature. I can’t be sure either way.

That being said, to anyone reading this, I highly recommend this add-on because of the greater functionality it provides.

(I also recommend the add-on "Wiktionary and Google Translate" which, when you double click a word, quickly produces a pop-up window with its definition and sometimes an audio of its pronunciation)

Sidebar Bookmarks Search Plus

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Good stuff, very much needed.

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

Link Pad

Your summary doesn't tell people what it does. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Your disclaimer should come last not first. Going to try this out though.

Browser Turns Editor

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I like it. This addon has a lot of potential. On July 13 he said, 'More updates coming soon". I personally would like a way to highlight text with a color. I'm surprised this feature don't come standard with a program like Firefox.

SaveAll!

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works well for me.
A nice extra would be if it could save the pages using their titles.
Also if it saved them all in one shot.

abcTajpu

Great Add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

While useful for different languages, I’ve been using it to insert mathematical symbols such as the integral symbol ∫ when answering questions in Yahoo Answers.
Note: Users should be informed that you can insert symbols directly in the necessary text field rather than using the Unicode.
For example, is instead of "i=%u222B|" one can just type "i=∫|"

FEBE

Great Help Files Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Good work

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.1). 

All-in-One Sidebar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Lots and lots of control and options, just the way I like it. For example I was able to set it up to open and close the sidebar by "hitting" the left side of the screen with the mouse.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.8). 

QuickSearches

Try other Add-on Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This is the guy who commented above. I confused this add-on "Quicksearches" with the better add-on "Smartsearches"
"Smartsearches" is very good

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A great little time saver. Works as advertised.

QuickSearches
