Lightweight Themes Manager

It does NOT work with Firefox 47!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

In Firefox 47, Tools, Lightweight Themes and I get a blank page instead of the normal full page of showing my personas!!

Thanks to solve this BUG with the FF47 version.

Thanks to the developer for this great addon.

Classic Theme Restorer

Drag opened tabs. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Previously, I could press on an opened tab and move it to a new location. For some strange reason, it does not work anymore in Firefox 45. Could you add an option in this addon to just do that. Thanks.

Thanks for this great addon.

Wiktionary and Google Translate

On 03/10/2016, it does not work properly!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

When you select a word in English to get the defintion, it does not work at all. Same when you select a word in another language for translation.

One feature you should add is the possibility to select individual words for translation from a foreign language. Sometimes, you are forced to select a sentence and you cannot select individual words.

I have Windows 7 Ultimate and Firefox 45.

Keep improving this great addon. Thank you to the developer for this great addon.

Open Tabs Next to Current

EXCELLENT!! I have been longing for this addon for ages!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Well, I have many tabs and, for ages, I put up with having to go back to the first tab when I opened a new tab or a new bookmark. No more with this addon that is such a great jewel.

It seems to do more than what it is supposed to do.
1) You click the + at the top right of your tabs and it opens a new tab that is now next at the right of the current tab. Which is very good when you have many tabs like I do.

2) Not mentioned I believe but also very useful. When you open say the Addons link in Firefox in Tools, Addons, the Addons page shows up also at the right of the current tab and that is again very good.
It does the same for some links that would otherwise move at the very right of the set of tabs and that move at the right of the current tab with this addon.

3) You open Bookmarks, Show All Bookmarks and you click to a particular link. With this addon, the clicked link will show up at the right of your current tab instead of the very right of the big set of tabs that you might have.

Many thanks to the developer. Highly recommended especially for those who open many tabs.

YouTube High Definition

Check this site where the video starts automatically despite not allowing that. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Check "RolandChannel - YouTube" at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4vbiZMU_yrheYVZH393-Zw
On this page, the video starts automatically even though I have clearly set this addon YouTube High Definition to prevent videos from starting automatically anywhere!
I do not why, for this particular page, it does not work.
I used AutoPause everywhere on the options for this addon.

Many thanks to the developer for this excellent addon. Highly recommended.

New Tab Tools

(SOLVED) VERY SERIOUS ISSUES WITH THIS ADDON TO DO BASIC TASKS ON TILES. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

UPDATE: VERSION 63 SOLVES THE MAIN SERIOUS ISSUES. I have not tested thoroughly with this version 63 but a quick test seems to show that the developer did a great job I believe. Kudos to the developer!!

1) With the latest versions of this addon and/or Firefox, it has become impossible to add new titles the simplest way possible!!
Even the Option, Add tile option for this addon simply does not work properly. At least with the many tiles that I currently have (61 tiles in a table of 10 rows and 8 columns).
I used to drag and drop new tiles from the bookmarks sidebar (a button that I added with Customize on my user interface) that I opened at the left but this method does not seem to work anymore even though it was very easy to do before!!

2) I would like to be able to move at a very particular position among my set of tiles that are on the new tab any tile using my method 1) but also through a second method through your interface when you click on your wheel of options (The Option, Add a tile does not work!)

3) From a list of bookmarks in a particular folder of the bookmarks, I should be able to open this particular folder and add automatically all the bookmarks in the order listed in this folder onto the new tab using your addon.
That is an added feature that I would like to see added to your addon.

4) I have 10 rows and 8 columns and therefore I would like to be able to move very quickly the pinned tiles from one location to another by just dragging them on the new tab.
I also want to add new tiles from my left bookmarks sidebar very quickly by selecting them at the left and dragging them on the new tab page at the location of my choice.
Currently, all this is basically not possible to do with your addon.
More, I have yet to understand how to add and remove tiles using your addon even though it seems there is the Add tile option in Option but it simply does not work at all.

5) When I remove a particular tile at a particular location, I want the tiles next to it to fill the gap left by the removed tile, not another unpin tile come at the place of the tile that I have just removed.

6) The basic tasks described on "Customize the New Tab page | Firefox Help" at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/customize-new-tab-page simply do not work anymore, at least with the big number of tiles that I have (61 tiles in a table of 10 rows and 8 columns).
For instance, the basic task "Add a Tile from your bookmarks" simply does not work with your addon and that is a HUGE problem for me. Because I need to be able to add and move and remove tiles in seconds and I cannot do that anymore with your addon for reasons I do not know.

7) I do not know if it is the big number of tiles that I have (61 tiles in a table of 10 rows and 8 columns) that causes the following very serious issues but I should assume that it should not be the case considering the huge amount of RAM that I have.
For instance, when I press the pin on a tile to remove it, it completely freezes my web page and take ages to remove the tile.
Same crazy behavior when I want to just move a tile to a new location, it is basically impossible to do!!

8) (ADDED POINT TO SOLVE) When there is a URL for a particular tile that I would like to change and this tile is pinned on the New Tab, I should be able to easily change the URL. The strange fact is that there is NO easy option to do that.
When I go to Options, I can go to the tile and change its title because there is a Tile field but, to change its URL, it is not possible as there is no URL field!! The URL is shown but there is no means to change it to something else.
Just add a URL field in this Option where all the options are shown to change the URL of a particular tile that is pinned on the New Tab and then it will be possible to make such a simple change of the URL very easy to do.

Thanks please to plan to solve these various serious issues, they are so SERIOUS that your addon is now unusable as I cannot add, move or remove addons quickly and normally.

When these various issues will be fixed, it will be really an excellent addon.

By the way, I have Windows 7 Ultimate and Firefox 44. I also have an Intel core i7 quadcore and 8 GB of RAM.

Many thanks to the developer for this excellent addon. Highly recommended.

YouTube High Definition

A BUG! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

There is a BIG and VERY BAD bug with your addon and it is extremely damaging to your addon.

When I move to a youtube page with a video, there is a problem where your addon does not start and instead I see HD on the settings button linked to the video window on youtube!!
Then, I am forced to try to do things to start your addon taking over by clicking inside the slider on the video window, and only then does it allow this HD to disappear and basically your addon start taking over only when I trigger it manually through the clicking of the slider!!

All this mess makes the use of your addon not only a big pain but your addon is basically unusable normally without me being forced to trigger your addon manually into action by clicking on this slider!!
This experience is not only a waste of time but it is extremely bad.

In version 44, the icon that was on the bar at the bottom of Firefox 43 does not appear with version 44. It might be intentional, I do not know.

I use Firefox 43 and Windows 7 Ultimate. In YouTube High Definition, I use the following options: Video Quality: Large 480 and Video Size: Full Page. As you see, the HD (720p) comes first when I reach a youtube.com video page and it has nothing to do with my options used with this addon.

I hope you will solve this BIG bug because your addon has always been very good otherwise when it worked properly.

New Tab Tools

A small bug. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have 9 rows and 7 columns for this addon but when I move my cursor over these rows, sometimes the rows move up and down instead of staying fixed.
It is just a small BUG to correct I believe.

I use Firefox 43 and Windows 7.

Thanks for this great addon.

Download Flash and Video

The videos at 1080p, 1440p, and 2160p do not show up when I try to download them!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

On "Two jetman fly over Dubai in formation with an Airbus A380 (Emirates: #HelloJetman [by XDubai] - YouTube)" at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_VPvKl6ezyc , youtube gives you the option of viewing at 2160p, 1440p, and 1080p BUT only 720p is the best that shows up when I press on the button linked to your addon!!!!

Is this problem normal? Why can't I download at 1080p, 1440p, and 2160p and why are these formats not showing up on the list when I press the button for your addon?

Thanks to let me know what is going on at michaeljustgreat2 at hotmail dot com.

Many thanks for your addon.

Wiktionary and Google Translate

One page in Spanish does not work with Google translate. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

At http://www.microsoftinsider.es/83853/exclusiva-conoce-la-microsoft-band-2-antes-que-nadie-en-microsoft-insider/ , when I press the google translate button, nothing happens. But when I go to Google translate, it works when I put this URL!

Thanks for this addon.

Save-To-Read

When I want to add a link to read for later, it does not work. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Update: I solved this issue below by following the KNOW BUG instructions. Now it works fine. So, when it works like it is now, it is a very good addon.

It does not work when I want to add a link to read for later. I press the + sign on the address bar showing Click-to-Save but it does not add at all the link!

There must be a BUG. And how do you delete this link, I am not sure at all either.

You should clearly state how you add a link and how you delete a link in your "About this addon" section.

If I did not have this simple problem of not being able to add a link, it would be a good addon. For the time being, it is completely useless when it does not work this way!

I have FF39 under Windows 7.

New Tab Tools

IT DOES NOT REMEMBER, SAVE ACCURATELY THE TILES WHEN YOU DO THE BACKUP!!! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

There is a serious BUG when this addon is used to backup the settings used by this addon, in particular the tiles that are used by default on the about:newtab new tab page. That is a big problem for me because I have quite a few default tiles that I have to redo each time I want to change the settings of new tab tools.

Otherwise, the rest works fine.

Thanks for the developer for this great addon.

ScrapBook

Improvements needed. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

For those like me wanting only to use this addon as a way to bookmark a page to read later on, I am forced to have 3 items around on my Firefox UI:
1) a ScrapBook menu option. Just to select Save As bookmark!
2) a first button ScrapBook. Just to quickly allow the sidebar to show up to see the bookmarks saved.
3) a second button (no name for it) showing on the status bar. Just in case I would want to edit a saved page. I don't want, as I just want to bookmark the page to read later on.
In total, 3 items to use this addon normally! There is something wrong here with these 3 items, as I just want to add bookmarks with it!

For those like me who wants to use this addon only to bookmark pages to read later on, you could do as the Save-to-Read addon does (at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/save-to-read/?src=search) that is have a + in the address bar and I would just click it and it would automatically save the bookmark. Then I would only need to have a single button to toggle quickly to show the sidebar (no ScrapBook menu needed and up to me if I want to have this button on the status bar to edit pages). You could allow the option of showing the "Select Folder" window when I would click on the + symbol in the address bar to bookmark a page.

Thanks to consider this suggestion, at least for the users like me who want to use this addon only to bookmark pages to read later on (and possibly have the option of edit pages later on but that would really have to be an option only).

You could even add a second symbol in the address bar for the action of saving a page, say a minus sign for instance.

Thanks to the developer of this nice addon.

Save-To-Read

This addon does not work anymore!! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I have the same problem than the person who wrote the review "Fantastic addon but not working after synchronisation" by snoof on July 23, 2013.
But I did not use Xmarks, I used the normal Sync feature of Firefox.

I have tried everything and nothing works with this addon! I reinstalled the addon, and then when I click to save to add a page to read later on, it does not work at all!

Well, otherwise, it would be a great addon; when it first worked, it was good. I have FF39.

New Tab Tools

When you are not logged on, the option to save your settings for this addon disappears!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have Windows 7 with New Tab Tools 44.1-signed.

---When I am not logged on the addons web site, in particular at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/new-tab-tools/?src=search , when you did Tools, Addons, extensions tab and click on the New Tab Tools extension, you could see at the bottom an option to save the settings for this addon. Unfortunately, this option strangely is completely gone! It was called Export settings and Import settings.
---However, when I am indeed logged on the addons web site, now I can see very clearly when I do Tools, Addons, extensions tab and I click on the New Tab Tools extension, I can see now the
Export Settings and Import settings options now clearly visible.
Could you make sure that I do see these two options (Import settings and Export settings) even when I am not logged on the addon web site? Thanks.

Many thanks to the developer for this great addon, I love it.

Boomerang

A VERSION FOR OUTLOOK.COM ONLINE? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

There is a big need to create a version for Outlook.com online if it is possible. Thanks to think about this suggestion.

Classic Theme Restorer

NEW FEATURE: With Sync, the settings used with this addon should automatically sync to another Firefox installation that I use on another computer. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

When I use Sync to get my various addons and so on from my normal computer at home to a second computer that I use at work, I do not get the settings that I use for this particular addon synched too on my second computer, only the addon installed. That would be great if you could put an option to just do that.
As a matter of fact, I saw with another addon exactly this feature. With this other addon, when I do Tools, Addons, and see the extensions tab, I press the options button for this other addon and I see the following option made available:
"Add a Sync (name of this other addon) settings".
I then have the possibility to tick this option. This way, when I use Sync, it will not only allow me to get this addon installed automatically on my second computer but it will also install, sync automatically on my second computer at work the settings that I use for this particular addon on my first computer at home.
This other addon should even have added a second way to select this particular feature ("Add a Sync (name of this other addon) settings") by adding it also to the following window when I do Tools, name of this other addon, and then a pop up window shows up with all the options available.

Many thanks to the developer for this excellent addon.

New Tab Tools

ONE GREAT NEW FEATURE NEEDED. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The possibility to have automatically selected background image from a set of images that are located in a particular folder at a determined interval of time.
Therefore, the image background of the new tab would automatically change every x minutes, and/or x hours, and/or x days from the background images stored in a particular folder.
That would definitively be really great.

Many thanks for this great addon. It is really useful to me.

QuickJS

Your addon messes up with a few sites using Javascript. For this reason alone, I am forced to stop using it! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Using Firefox 37, at the page http://www.dpreview.com/challenges/Entry.aspx?ID=897600&utm_campaign=internal-link&utm_source=challenges-widget&utm_medium=image&ref=challenges-widget , click on the slideshow button and I could not see anything when you addon was installed, it was simply messing up with this site. When I removed your addon, I could see the slideshow perfectly well!

For this reason alone, it is not possible for me to carry on using your addon.
