Qute Classic

A clear favorite Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Family members find this theme comfortably familiar and easy to comprehend.

The "Open a New Tab" button will not be in Qute Classic to the right of the last tab, so you have to move it to the Navigation Bar from another theme. In that other theme, open the Customize Toolbar window, and the Open New Tab button will change to a "+" over at the far right. Drag that "+" to the Navigation Bar, close the Customize Toolbar window, enable Qute Classic and re-start. You will now have a colorful Open New Tab button in the Navigation Bar. (When changing themes the button will remain there until you reverse the procedure, dragging the "+" back to the far right of the Tabs Bar.)

Web of Trust, MyWOT/WOT: Website Reputation Rating

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The problem with Web Of Trust is it can't be trusted. It marked a perfectly legitimate and responsible British appliance spares site (used by my son-in-law) with a red dot, and when I checked, the red dot was meant for a Taiwanese site: a scammer, spammer, PayPal phisher, and child-protection violator, with a completely different gobbledegook URL. This is worse than unfair. A false sense of security is one thing, but mis-labelling honest vendors is unpardonable.
Uninstall it and look at your user.prefs. You'll find 4 pages of weboftrust entries left behind.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Extremely useful yet simplicity itself. Great for when I take my glasses off, or when the default text is just too small for my monitor's native resolution. Muchas gracias.

Tab Saver!

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Normally I keep Tools\Options\Main...Startup set to show a blank page. But, every once in a while, I forget to reset it to show my windows and tabs from last time when I'm testing new extension or theme.
I'm not interested in complications or pages and pages of feature bloat; I don't want to have to decide in advance how many tabs I want restored - I just want them all.
This extension does just that and no more - and no less. It works flawlessly in Firefox 3.0.6. It's in the Tools menu, or the right-click menu and that's all there is to it. It's a perfect add-on precisely because it's so simple, focused on just one job, and doing it.
