Download Status Bar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

If I could have only one add-on made a permanent part of Firefox, this is it. The author has done a phenomenal job of replacing the original with something that is even better. His dedication to the task is second to none. Congratulations for a job well done :-)

BTW, second choice would be Tab Mix Plus.

OK, if you don't have this add-on, what's stopping you. This is, bar none, the best add-on for Firefox.

Download Status Bar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This just gets better and better every day.Do you have plans to add a pop-up when the mouse is over a download ... like the old DSB?

My mistake. I clicked on a download box and there it is. That's good enough for me.

If I could give 10 stars I would.

Download Nubs

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Awesome+++ (50 stars)

The author has done his homework here.

I pity the poor fools that are bashing the author's efforts to present a better alternative to the non-working, and as yet unsupported, Download StatusBar.

BTW I have looked at the source code for this add-on and I see nothing at all wrong with it.

I have only one complaint. The author's assumption is that a light background everywhere (even on the bar buttons) is acceptable. I use a dark background (#0e2a48) with chartreuse text. My pop-ups have chartreuse text on a near white background. WTF?!?!?!?!?

No bother. I rewrote part of the author's skin CSS and I am happy. Even the buttons have proper colors (hovered or not). Maybe the next release should RESPECT the color scheme .... puleeezzzz :-)

If more people would stop bitching at the efforts of others, the world would be a better place.

KUDOS to the author. You are awesome!!!!

Download Status Bar

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Although this is a work in progress, it works. That's more than I can say for Download Statusbar which I used for years. It stopped working with FFv26.

I would like to see a configuration item for the maximum width of each download and the possibility to clear completed downloads by double clicking the bar

Decreased Productivity

Decreased Productivity Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works in recent versions of FF if you know how to modify the file to be acceptable.

1) right click the install link and download the XPI file
2) open the XPI file with WINZIP
3) open install.rdf with notepad
4) find the line that starts with ---> <em:maxVersion>
5) set the max version to 30.*
6) file -> save and exit.
7) Winzip says "What do you want to do with this file?" Update Zip file with changes
8) close winzip
9) in FF file --> open file (browse to the XPI and select it)

Your install will work and the add-on now functions in FF up to v30 (assuming no significant changes that impact it)

Tab Mix Plus

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is by far one of the best add-ons for Firefox. Like many others, this is one add-on I install first on any new Firefox install. It has features that should be a part of Firefox (hint hint, nudge nudge, wink wink, say no more say no more).

With TMP, Firefox blows IE out of the water.

Groove Shredder

Works like a charm on FF 16.1.
Followed directions.
Didn't get greedy.
Grabbed one file at a time.
Names were as expected.
No problemo man!

Toolbar Buttons

More buttons than you could ever ask for Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Amazing.

Works with FF10 release update channel or beta without having to hack the install.rdf.

<em>NOTE TO DAWTER:</em>
<em>------------------------------</em>

How to make it work with TB 10.

Edit this file ...

"C:\Documents and Settings\[YOUR USER ACCOUNT HERE]\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\av6q2yd1.default\extensions\{03B08592-E5B4-45ff-A0BE-C1D975458688}\install.rdf\install.rdf"

with a text editor (making maxVersion under the Thunderbird comment be 10.*) and you will make it compatible with TB 10.

&lt;!--Thunerbird--&gt;
&lt;em:targetApplication&gt;
&lt;Description&gt;
&lt;em:id&gt;{3550f703-e582-4d05-9a08-453d09bdfdc6}&lt;/em:id&gt;
&lt;em:minVersion&gt;3.0a1pre&lt;/em:minVersion&gt;
&lt;em:maxVersion&gt;<bib><strong>10.*</strong>&lt;/em:maxVersion&gt;
&lt;/Description&gt;
&lt;/em:targetApplication&gt;

Restart TB and there ya be.</bib>

TMP - one of the best add-ons for firefox Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have used TMP since it was developed. It has been amazing.

I have an issue with the current version on FF 11. As suggested here, I tried the development version. It has the same issue. I'm hoping you can fix this.

When I click a link in my bookmark bar, it used to open the link in a new tab in FF10 and prior. Now the current tab is used.

NewScrollbars (aka NoiaScrollbars)

Very well done! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Like others, I have looked for something like this. Currently running FF 10 beta 6. They work fine.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.3). 

Yahoo! Mail Notifier

YMN broken by Yahoo(s) again! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Best Yahoo Mail notifier available. Have been using it for years with only one issue which the author was VERY quick to fix - Yahoo's fault BTW.

Unfortunately, it looks like Yahoo did something to break it again.

It really would be nice if readers like FASTKC would describe how they fixed their recent issue since this could help a lot of people.

ViewAbout

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Type "About:About" in the address bar without the quotes. Now you have a menu of many of the About commands without having to add anything to Firefox.

NOTE TO br2: You can edit the code. I added About:Addons because it wasn't included.
Then I minimized the whole thing to be just About:About.
And then I eliminated it :)

Greasemonkey

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

All things considered, this version was released quickly to solve many issues. I tried it out. It works with ALL of my GM scripts now.

I finally understand where the authors are going with this add-on after having read the comment in the reviews section. Change is sometimes good even if we don't see the light right away. Bear with them. I have seen the light.

Congratulations.

For those that have problems, maybe the problems are due to conflicts with one of the other add-ons you are using. Try disabling some (or all) and see what happens. If the problem goes away, you have a decision to make.

Greasemonkey

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

In addition to this version breaking scripts, I really dislike the new method of "managing" the scripts. How the heck do you change the sites the script acts on?

What were you guys thinking?

Put the old manager back in PULEEZE. It was vastly superior.

Broke scripts I used often. Went back to the previous version. The scripts work now.

Bummer. You probably had good intentions and put a lot of work into it. Hope you get it working .

TMP dev build works with FF4.0beta Rated 5 out of 5 stars

My favorite from FF 3.

Glad the dev build (link above) works on FF4.

There aren't enough stars on the scale. I'd give it a 10.

BTW, I wrote a very tiny stylish script to supplement.
Tabs are now just the size of the favicon until hovered.
(would be nice if this could be added)

For those who are interested.
@namespace url(http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul);
/* ----Show tab text and close button only on hovered tab---- */
.tabbrowser-tab:not(:hover) .tab-text,
.tabbrowser-tab:not(:hover) .tab-close-button
{ display: none !important;}

XUL Profiler (by yoono)

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Doesn't work with 3.6.3 (even when I edited the install.rdf to make it install). Obviously it's out of date.

That's a major bummer. My FF is pushing 90-100% most of the time. I'd love to find the culprit(s).

I can give it a 2 for the hope that it may get updated.
I'd certainly give it more if it was updated to work on the current FF.
