For a minute there I thought this could "Combine and Decode" like Outlook Express.
Dude, you got my hopes up... don't know what it really does do though.

CompactHeader

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Better, but doesn't fix the biggest problem: The use of a small font with really big line spacing.
3 lines isn't out of the question if you could reduce all the empty space.
2 lines could be more compact if you relocated the email's date... because it really is 3 lines high with a blank line #2.
My only other complaint is that the 'flat buttons' cause the width of the header to get fatter when you mouse over them... it's a bit sloppy looking.

CS Lite

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

@s0ma23: I ran into the same problem. It's a new security option in 3.5+.
Go to Tools/Options/Privacy (tab).
Click on 'Settings' by 'Clear history when FF closes'.
UNcheck 'Site Preferences'.
Problem bypassed.
@Rob Beckman: I'd like to see the information stored somewhere else in a future version so other site preferences can be cleared without effecting CS.

Element Properties

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

5 out of 5, does just what it says on the tin.
Btw, this has been fixed in the newer builds, if you are willing to install a beta version.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6). 

Save Session

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

"Save session & Exit" doesn't always seem to work 3.6.10. Don't know about other versions.Sometimes it saves the session, other times not.Edit: Turns out if you set your security option to clear browsing history when you close ff, this will not work. Make sure it is unchecked for this to do anything.
->If you want, manually clear your browsing history, and THEN Save Session and Exit.
Hopefully the author will find a fix for this.

Toggle Private Browsing

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Simple front end. Probably not necessary, but pretty much the ONLY addon that does anything for Private Browsing ATM.
Would be nice if this updated to incorporate some of the features from the "Private Browsing" addon by froilson, since that isn't updated anymore.

This failed on most images I tried to grab.
I recommend you try this:
1) Go to Flickriver.com and find what you were trying to grab (you can view all images by a user or group, and narrow by tags, etc. It's very specific or general as you want it.)
2) Go to the drop down that says "Photo Size" and select 'Show Large Size'.
3) You'll now have all images, in their max resolution in one tab.
4) Use 'Save Images' addon: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3404/ by right clicking and selecting 'Save Images From Current Tab'.

I gave this a '1' only because after my first several attempts failed to produce ANY result, I just removed it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.6). 

Private Browsing

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've never experienced lag like one user has.
It does not wipe any data from standard sessions (which if it did would be the fault of FF not this plugin).
Gives access to a large amount of preferences... like the ability to save cookies or passwords from the private session (though that IS less private, it is a convenience).

While Ctrl-Shift-P may give FF3.0+ quick access to private browsing, the options are not readily available without this (AFAIK).

I love this plugin. I can't imagine FF3.5 without it.
5 Stars: Does what it says on the tin.
