My Reviews

Remove It Permanently

Doesn't work for Yahoo Rated 3 out of 5 stars

You can fix up your Yahoo page nicely, but the next time you go there, everything you deleted is back.

Yet Another Remove It Permanently

Use older version of Palemoon for this add-on to work. Or Firefox. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

For Palemoon continue to use version 24.7.2
Many add-ons don't work in vs 25 or 25.01, not just this one.

Yet Another Remove It Permanently

Best add-on I have Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have 12 add-ons but this is my favorite. Used it for years. I'd consider using Internet Explorer more if there was a similar add-on for IE.

Tab Utilities Lite

Doesn't work on Yahoo news page Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Much smaller than TabMix but it won't open links in My Yahoo in a new tab, unless you middle click.

Open Link in New Tab

Not for new Yahoo news page Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I now have to use Tabmix to open links in the new My Yahoo page. Would rather have a fix for this add-on as its much smaller.

Custom Buttons

Not for FF 25 and up Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I've always used this add-on to simplify my browser, have everything in one bar. Unfortunately, it won't work for the upcoming versions of Firefox. Wish it could be fixed.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.0.5.6.1-signed). 

Open Link in New Tab

Not for FF 25 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It doesn't work on FF25 and up. Have to go back to Tab Mix Plus for these. Wish it could be fixed to work on newer editions as it is much simpler than TMP.

Hide Local Folders

Hide local Folders Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've looked a while for a way to hide the Local Folders entry which I had no use for. This works great.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.01). 

Remove It Permanently

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I can block elements on a page, say a news item on Yahoo. Then open another news item on Yahoo. Blockage doesn't carry over. Tried all the settings. I don't have that problem with YARIP. Also undo is easier.

Open Link in New Tab

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Why not combine this with your other add-on that opens bookmarks in a tab?

Open Link in New Tab

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works for me in FF4 and FF5

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.2010121601.1-signed). 

Firefox 3 theme for Firefox 4+

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

White line between tabbar and menu bar (or navigator bar). How to remove?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.0). 

Menu Editor

Problem using with FF4 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I'm using FF4 now and by overriding compatibility, have gotten all my extensions to work. The tab context menu with menu editor doesn't work however (can't right click a tab and choose "close other tabs"). So I use Menu Mod now along with the menu options of Tab Mix to clean up all the menus I need to. Doesn't look like Menu Editor has had any updates in quite a while.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.6). 

Element Hiding Helper for Adblock Plus

Need more features Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This add-on needs to be in the right-click menu and also there needs to be an "undo last selection" option as often more is blocked than what I box in with the red outline. I find yarip works better, though it's not working with Minefield. (FF 4 pre)

Sidebar Autohide

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Won't work in FF3.6 or higher. Use this instead:
Add this to User Styles in Chrome:
/* remove Sidebar maximum width restriction */
#sidebar {min-width: none !important;min-width: 0px !important;}
Then run it and adjust the width of the sidebar, then add this:
#sidebar-box {min-width:0; max-width:1px!important; overflow-x: hidden !important;}
#sidebar,#sidebar-title,#sidebar-box .tabs-closebutton {visibility:hidden;}
#sidebar-box:hover {max-width:none!important;}
#sidebar-box:hover #sidebar,#sidebar-title,#sidebar-box .tabs-closebutton {visibility:visible;}
#sidebar-splitter {border-width: 0px!important; min-width: 0!important; max-width: 0!important;}
#sidebar-box:hover + #sidebar-splitter {border-width: 0 1px!important; min-width: 4px!important; max-width: 4px!important;}

Sidebar Autohide

Auto open with CSS Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Add this to User Styles in Chrome:
/* remove Sidebar maximum width restriction */
#sidebar {min-width: none !important;min-width: 0px !important;}
Then run it and adjust the width of the sidebar, then add this:
#sidebar-box {min-width:0; max-width:1px!important; overflow-x: hidden !important;}
#sidebar,#sidebar-title,#sidebar-box .tabs-closebutton {visibility:hidden;}
#sidebar-box:hover {max-width:none!important;}
#sidebar-box:hover #sidebar,#sidebar-title,#sidebar-box .tabs-closebutton {visibility:visible;}
#sidebar-splitter {border-width: 0px!important; min-width: 0!important; max-width: 0!important;}
#sidebar-box:hover + #sidebar-splitter {border-width: 0 1px!important; min-width: 4px!important; max-width: 4px!important;}

Tab Mix Plus

TMP for FF3.5 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

To those who commented that they need a version to work with FF 3.5 http://tmp.garyr.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=9864
It worked for me with Shiretoko and Minefield on June 11, 2009

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.7.3). 

InstaClick

Switch to left click? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Would it be hard to fix it where links open in new tabs with left click( not right-click)? I can do it with Tab Mix but that's the only function of that extension I use.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4). 

Remove It Permanently

YARIP is an improvement Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Though RIP is easier to use, the newer extension Yarip works better. For example, when removing content from My Yahoo (customized news page), the removed content always comes back with RIP, but not with Yarip.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.6.4).
