My Reviews

Shorten URL (Bit.ly)

Great -- but "Shorten/Share" option no longer appears in my main context menu Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Anyone else having this problem? Is this a known conflict, or is there a Firefox setting that might be interfering? Thanks!

Fox Splitter (formerly Split Browser)

Unable to start FF 6.0.2 properly maximized Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Hi --First off, I've been using this extension with FF 6.0.2.Because this extension is not compatible with FF 6.0.2, I've been running it with compatibility checking turned off.Overall, it works very well!But one annoying problem is that FF 6.0.2 does not open to a properly maximized window when Fox Splitter is installed. Instead, it opens to a "Restored Down" window that is nonetheless as large as the screen will allow, such that the (thick) borders of the de-maximized window are placed directly at the edges of the screen. It kind of looks like it's maximized, but it's not.Perhaps this bug can be fixed before the extension is released for 6.0.2Cheers!Jay

Tab History Menu

Tab history appears behind my tab context menu Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Hi Everyone,

I like the concept here... but, if I right click on the active tab, the tab history provided by this extension is obscured by the tab context menu which appears in front of it.

I'm also using TMPlus and have unchecked the little box as suggested in this forum.

What might be wrong?

Cheers,

Jay

ScrapBook

NEW: Sticky Annotations Problem! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Yes, I have the same problem as FiNa LaNa. The text from all my sticky annotations created in Scrapbook+FF2 has disappeared! All that I have left is big, empty yellow boxes!

Is there a better way to communicate this issue to the developers?

Infinite scrolling conflicts with Googlepedia Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a very handy extension. Thank you.

I'd like to point out that the infinite scrolling option ("stream search results") does play nicely with Googlepedia (another nice extension) EXCEPT if the Wikipedia article is quite long (like the article for "Boston" or "Taiwan". In those cases, the infinite scrolling function turns off after a certain number of Google results.

Any thoughts?

PermaTabs

Good, but... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Two comments on this extension -- a good extension that has great prospects:

1) In my particular Firefox environment, PermaTabs disables my ability to open local files via File > Open File... I don't know how many other users experience the same effect, but it is a show-stopper for me.

2) In my opinion, the full promise of this extension has yet to be realized. The extension should (by default or by preferences) allow the user to make both the tab AND the webpage associated with the tab permanently locked (or frozen or fixed or protected or whatever you want to call it.) Unfortunately, even though the tab is locked, there are several ways to lose the web page that you wanted to permanently lock-down via PermaTabs.

For instance, with the PermaTab highlighted, pressing the Back Page or Forward Page icons will still change the webpage (IMHO, these icons should be disabled by default or by preference).

Also, with the PermaTab highlighted, if you click on a link in any OTHER application (i.e. not Firefox), like Norton Internet Security or SpySweeper or any other application with an embedded web link, that link will open in the PermaTab, and your "locked down" web page will disappear.

Still... kudos to the extension author for recognizing a real need, and for implementing a better design than other extensions that I have seen.
