Great Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Makes my Google Reader way more readable and less polluted.

How come I could ever live without this?? Thanx! Suggestions: add Stylehive, Wishroll and Yahoo!MyWeb bookmaklets too! Nice work!

VeriSign's OpenID SeatBelt

It works. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I don't think this is exactly a groundbreaking add-on, since(on the practical side) it does pretty much the same thing as Firefox's built in password manager... and only works with predetermined sites. But still, it works, and it does what it says - one click and you're in. (I'm using FF 3.0.9)

Speed Dial

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hello!
I use speed dial for some quite some time now and never had any problem. But since a few days ago i noticed my Firefox started with a strange behaviour. Whenever the mouse cursor was not moving (like now, when i'm typing, not using the mouse) it would show the hourglass continually, like forever continually - just as if there was something loading, but there was not anything loading, actually. After some time trying to figure out what was the problem, i found out it was Speed Dial since the problem stopped after i disabled it. The problem occured even if i didn't have the "Speed Dial" front page open. It didn't cause any crash or anything, but it was just annoying you know, having the hourglass spinning constantly.

Hide Chrome

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hi! Congratulations, this is a great extension. It eliminates the useless titlebar, without having to go total fullscreen, while keeping the tab bar and the menu bar. And the window is still resizable. Very good really. I guess the window align though was kind of tricky. I use my Windows Taskbar on the left side of my monitor rather than at the bottom. When i press ctrl+f2 my Firefox will enter the Hide Chrome "mode" toggled on the top left side of my screen (behind my taskbar). I'm unable to bring it forward because the chorme is hidden, but if i move the taskbar around the screen and then back to the left side again, it will be just fine. Just to make things clear, i'll add a screenshot of what it looks like when i activate my "Hide Chrome". http://i390.photobucket.com/albums/oo347/plasticmadness/General%20Unsorted/SC_0715.png
I'm not sure if it's a bug, but i guess i should let you know this.

Hide Menubar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I absolutely LOVED this add-on, probably the one thing that allows you the most free screen while preserving the access to most used brower functions.
1. Tip One: this is great to use with the Vista Aero skin. You have prompt management of your Favorites (for those who don't want to right-click or press tab).
2. IT WORKS IN FULL SCREEN!! (at least with the Vista Aero skin, haven't checked the others), that means no more browsing with the USELESS titlebar.
Thanx man!! I loved this!!

Chrome Package

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I can't download this! it gives me an "invalid signature/corrupted download (-261)" thingy. I already had this problem with another experimental extension too. But still, the project looks great, this extension seems to be EXACTLY what i was looking for. The only thing I praise Google Chrome for is almost eliminating (minimizing, actually) the TOTAL USELESSNESS of the Titlebar, beyond that of course of stealing useful screen space. What's the purpose of the titlebar once you have tabs? Of course everyone knows what software one is using, you don't need it written on the titlebar. And for close/maximize/minimize purpose you will always have keyboard shortcuts and context menus. From looking at your screencap, i'd tip you to make the titlebar space above the tab a lot more thinner. Will it retain the funcionality of double clicking the tab-bar in order to open a new tab? Or will it be only via the new tab button? Do you have anything in mind regarding the taskbar too to look like Chrome's? Good luck with your add-on, i hope to be able to use it soon :-)

Show MyIP

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanx Mr. Michael Klaus, this is neat and handy, works perfectly with previous and current [3.0.4] version of FF. I believe this should be built in FF core. Knowing your IP is as basic and necessary as knowing your name.

autoHideStatusbar

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Can't download/install the add-on. FF dl manager gives me back this:

Motivo: Assinatura do arquivo inválida (provável download corrompido)
-261

(invalid signature/corrupted file)

Add to Search Bar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanx man, this is great. Your add-on is a must-have, and i guess it should be in the Firefox core, actually!! Even Internet Explorer has a thing like this, i can't believe FF missed it!! (Firefox team, if you read this, add Dr. Evil's code to the core and give the kid some credit, please, he deserves it!) It works perfectly and t's highly recommended, indeed. Congratulations for your nice work.

BBCode

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

It didn't work for me here same as users fcig and Pantaleão. I'm using Format Toolbar Composer which is great but your add -on seems less intrusive and more complete. I'll wait for a bugs fix though hopefully.

CoolPreviews

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It seems contradictory the fact that we spend a lot of time trying to avoid pop up windows and CoolPreviews actually consists of a pop-up window. But it is actually a major time-saver, i love this add-on and i cannot live without it. I have a suggestion regarding "enable previews" settings: when i choose the previews to be enabled only in the default sites, i wish CoolPreviews would remember the sites i manually enabled, so that i don't have to enable them every time (like in a "enabled sites" list). I would also love to have more options of keyboard shortcuts to the preview window.

Clipmarks

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Not sure how to rate this one, for the reason it actually does what it says just fine, so technically i guess i should say it's a great add-on. Social Bookmark addicts will love Clipmarks, so if one is into that he sould download this for sure. But personally speaking, it didn't work for me, i think this is totally useless. The fact that it's yet another thing you have to logon to every time... it's not very time-saving really, it sucks so much. If it's just for the sake of saving a piece of text you can just ctrl+c it and ctrl+v it anywhere, so there's no need to register, login, save, tag and choose amongst half a dozen other parameters. I use to save text clips on OneNote, and it's doing just fine for the matter of text clipping. It also allows me to carry the file on my cell phone, and i can also share it of i want to.

Cooliris 3D Wall

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I really like CoolIris. I read a lot of previous reviews saying it's a useless addon, that you can't save pictures and that it now has built in ads and shop stuff. Now how do i see all this: i agree that CooIris is a "cosmetic" add-on. But just because it's an add-on that is not gonna change your life, it does not mean it's useless or bad. One has to admit it, it's indeed pretty cool to be able to see all the web imagery and video with enhanced quality and in a 3d environment, just for the sake of it. Idon't like the "sponsored" items on the discover menu, and i agree that quiting the software in order to save an image and then coming back on again is a tiresome activity. I have a suggestion here, maybe, just like there is an option that allows you to email the image to your friends, there could be a feature (another button) that peformmed the action of saving the original image link to a list, wich, once you exit CoolIris, could be exported to the browser download manager for a quick batch download. I understand the shooping button might look as cheap ad at first, BUT: i have to stand bythis feature, because i think i actually see the point, the product images that stores use sometimes are way too small or bad quality and you can't see the details properly, not to say it also depends on your monitor size and res.; well i must say for that matter CoolIris worked great! Specially for beauty products, where you need to see rich details of color and texture, it was amazing, because it's actually capable of preventig you from making the wrong choice (why is it i think only the girls will agree with me on this one...? hehe) I guess then it's a good deal for stores to be Cooiris enabled and also it's a good tool for customers, but i definetely would hate to see stores anywhere beyond that shopping menu. Cooliris going total Ad woul be horrible.
There's a hint for navigating sites that aren't yet Cooliris enabled: i use to go to Google Advanced Image Search and set it to look only inside the desired domain. It returns quite some false positive results too, but usually displays all the images within that site.

DownThemAll!

There's nothing slow about this. It's better than all other Firefox download managers available.
