Conflicts with FindBar Tweak Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I was going to give this extension 5 stars, but it breaks one aspect of FindBar Tweak, which I also use. Specifically, after installing this extension FindBar will always close if I press <Ctrl-F> even if I have "Ctrl+F also closes the FindBar" disabled in FindBar Tweak. Ideally I'd like this extension to have the UI of FindBar Tweak, but that is probably asking too much.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.31.1-signed). 

Session Manager

Good extension, but needs better search filter Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I am updating my prior review because it has appeared to have gone unnoticed, and the search filter is STILL WAY TOO LIMITED.

This wonderful extension works very well, but I think there is still room for improvement:

1) There is no way to search for multiple keywords (like all tabs containing THIS and THAT). Adding this alone would be a huge improvement.

2) The search field currently only filters the Sessions list. The search filter should filter the tabs listed under Windows and Tabs, as well as the Sessions list. Without this filtering of the lower frame, it is difficult to locate the desired tabs when a session had a lot of tabs.

3) There should be an option to have no tabs selected be the default.

4) The default should be to keep the window open for delete (as noted by another poster)

5) Right-clicking on a tab in the Window and Tab list should present a context menu allowing the location URL to be copied to the clipboard.

Hopefully, these suggestions will be incorporated in a future release. Thanks for a great extension.

Add-ons Sidebar

Perfect Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I use this add-on in combination with Tree Style Tab and Unified Sidebar. Unified Sidebar addresses the "window room" issue Dark_Cheshire was complaining about. Awesome! I no longer need AiOS, which for a while now has had a display bug when used with TST and US (overlaps status bar). My FF now loads much faster too. Hopefully, this will be updated for FF4 when it stabilizes.

Unified Sidebar

Simply awesome! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I use Unified Sidebar with Tree Style Tab, ScrapBook, and the Bookmarks sidebar. Works great! I toggle between ScrapBook and the Bookmark sidebars using toolbar buttons for each.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.2010032801). 

Tree Style Tab

Great for web researchers Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love this add-on. It has really increased my productivity. My only complaint is there is no apparent way to make it warn when you close a collapsed tab tree or sub-tree yet still not warn for closing individual tabs.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.10.2010040201). 

HistoryInTab

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Nice add-on with a lot of potential, but needs to be drag-n-drop aware (I agree with Michael B.). If a drag-and-drop occurs it should not launch it. I tried going to the developer's homepage, but his 24hr bandwidth was exceeded. :(

New Tab Homepage

Nice, but not needed Rated 5 out of 5 stars

There are reasons why the FF developers open a new tab to a blank page. While convenient, this add-on is not needed. Simply add the Homepage button to your button bar and middle click the button when you want your homepage opened in a new tab.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.2). 

Places in Tab

Nice add-on but needs persistent tab option Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I agree with techer. This is a gread add-on which one would think would be already in Firefox as a program option or about:config setting. Thanks to KallAngo for the middle-mouse tip. I would like the developer to add add-on options to 1) enable open in new tab by default, and 2) always reuse existing library tab. The second one would change the focus to the tab where the bookmarks are already being managed, and avoid having to hunt down the Library tab. Selecting the Bookmarks menu option or by pressing Ctrl-Alt-B would simply switch to the Library tab with the Bookmark Manager. Thanks hail2u!

tabsearch

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Awesome Add-on! Works perfectly to enable filtering of the tab list with the Tree Style Tab add-on when you enable its Show "List all tabs" button option. Just what I was seeking. Thanks blassey!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4).
