Toolbar Autohide

Great !!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hi Sepand,


I have been testing 'Toolbar Autohide' v4.1.2 for a while ... and several small glitches have come up :


- This previously commented problem remains active ( tested on different OSes and on different themes ) :

“ When opening a new tab through a link ( for instance clicking on a Google search entry ) that implies the CREATION of A TABBAR NEW ROW ... the new tab row 'auto-appears' ... the proper behaviour would be jumping to the new tab without showing any tabbar new row at all ... or even better ... honouring what you have defined on 'Display on Events'. ”


- The following one is impacting on the core of my usability : On 'Zombie' mode ... 'Alt+keys' shortcuts to access Firefox menus are not working. So that if you intend to open a file, show history, synchronize your bookmarks ... whatever function you need to access through the menus ... you will be screwed.


- When moving tabs around ... you get an indicator to help you foresee the new position of the tab once you drop it ... well, it does not appear anymore.



Regards.

Toolbar Autohide

Great !!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hi sepandparhami,


I have just made a quick test of 'Fullscreen Toolbar Hover' 3.0.3 ... and it works like a charm. Specifically the 'Zombie Mode' functionality replication is simply P E R F E C T . THANK YOU !!!!


On the other hand, regarding to the approach of this new feature ... I'd like to mention the following ...

... I usually surf the net in 'Zombie Mode' ... but several times a day I just need a quick go to 'Maximized Mode' for a while ... and then come back to 'Zombie Mode'.

With today's approach, going from 'Zombie Mode' to 'Maximized Mode' I need to open about:addons tab, enter 'Fullscreen Toolbar Hover' preferences, update them (ticking Normal (don't hover)) . I also need to move up the mouse pointer and righ-click on the toolbar to tick 'Show menu bar'. Well ... yes a bit cumbersome. Then the other way around for coming back to 'Zombie Mode'.

Either way ... in my opinion, the main reason for updating this new feature's approach is that I think most people who will use 'Zombie Mode' they will be doing so in substitution of 'Fullscreen Mode' ... ... once they are in 'Zombie Mode' ... they will not need to F11 for going to fullscreen ... they will probably need to click F11 to go to 'Maximized Mode'.

Yes ... I think 'Zombie Mode' and 'Fullscreen Mode' should be mutually exclusive. I also think that 'Zombie Mode' attributes should be replicated from 'Fullscreen Mode' , I mean, if on 'Fullscreen Mode' only one 'bar' or two 'bars' are autohiding ... 'Zombie Mode' should behave the same way ... and the fields 'Show toolbar when there is a title change event (notification)' and 'Show Tabs' from 'Fullscreen Toolbar Hover' addon should apply to both 'Fullscreen Mode' and 'Zombie Mode'.


I'd love to know your point about this.



Thank you.

Toolbar Autohide

Great !!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hi sepandparhami,

I forgot to mention in my previous comment that, those who use the so called 'Zombie Mode' ... we usually use it as a substitute of 'Fullscreen Mode' ... so that the possible remaining 'states' of Firefox window would be :

Minimized -- Unmaximized -- Maximized -- 'Zombie Mode'


... in contrast to the usual ...

Minimized -- Unmaximized -- Maximized -- Fullscreen



... this way, having available the 'Zombie Mode' does not restrict us from using the regular Maximized mode whenever it's required.


Thanks a lot.

Toolbar Autohide

Great !!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Wow !!!! ... sincerely ... I had lost any hope about recovering old-Autohide extension functionality.

Thank you very, very, very much for creating this addon.



I wonder if you could implement what in old-Autohide was called 'Zombie Mode'. This is a critical part on my Firefox usability experience ... and maybe some others too.

With 'Zombie Mode' I got my bottom taskbar at hand as if I were not using fullscreen. Actually I combined 'Zombie Mode' on one hand ... and ... on the other hand, using the window manager, I removed Firefox window top border. The final result was brilliant ... I had a real Firefox fullscreen with no-bouncing autohiding toolbar and tabbar at the top ... and a no-bouncing autohiding taskbar at the bottom.


As far as I remember I only used 'Zombie Mode' on linux ... because old-Autohide gave the option to show/autohide the bottom taskbar for Windows ... and nowadays I mainly use linux.


Thank you anyway.

NoSquint

Privacy concern Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Hi Jason,

I enjoy your addon very much ... though I lately found a annoying glitch threatening my privacy :

When I set “Remember per-site settings between Firefox restarts” , “Forget settings for sites not visited in the last Month” and “Erase NoSquint site history when Firefox clears private data” ... the addon behaves as expected except in the case when I clears my private data.

If I load a webpage , modify the general zoom and font zoom settings , clears my private data (through Crtl+Shift+Supr or through Sanitisminau button at addon bar) ... when I reload the webpage the general and font zoom settings REMAIN THE SAME. For me this is an important bug which probably make me set back to “Forget all per-site settings when Firefox closes”. I hope you could find some time for fixing it in the following version.

Either way let me thank you for such a good and extremely useful addon.

Thank you !!!

Restartless Restart

Toolbar button keeps moving EVERYDAY Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Searchbar Autosizer

Better ... but a new REGRESION ... Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Things are coming back to normality ... but a new regresion seems to come. Sometimes its useful to make a 'blank search' ... to open Google main page (or whatever default search engine) and quickly pick the translator, gmail, google maps, etc ... Till now ... a 'blank search' opened a new tab ... now, in version 1.5.7, a 'blank search' overrides the active tab you were paying attention to ... it is very unconfortable.

On the other hand, a previous problem still remains :

- After matching and accepting 'Open this window instead of the wizard' ... the option keeps clear.

Searchbar Autosizer

SBA 1.5.6 : NEGATIVE upgrade. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

- After upgrading SBA version, previous setup is swept (this is not the first time it happens).

- 'Empty searchbar when a query is submitted' is NOT working.

- 'Revert to default search engine when a query is submitted' is NOT working.

- After matching and accepting 'Open this window instead of the wizard' ... the option keeps clear.


The upgrade has been NEGATIVE.

I am running Firefox 8.0 on Kubuntu Natty amd64.

Strata RELOADED

Great theme ... miss it on Thunderbird Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I agree with previous comment ; The theme ... amazing ; The lack of it on Thunderbird ... a pity . I assume it may probably be because it is necessary a big amount of work to implement it. 'Strata Reloaded' on Thunderbird sounds as too beautiful to be truth. Thank you either way.

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Hi ... on v5 ... when ( menubar enabled ; toolbar enabled ; tabs on top disabled ) I get a fantastic autohide behaviour on toolbar AND tabs ... BUT ... when ( menubar DISABLED ; toolbar enabled ; tabs on top disabled ) ... only tabs can autohide :-/ ( toolbar remains visible). On the other hand, avoiding transparency would be great, or at least keeping it optional. Thanks for the addon ... it's getting better quickly ...
