Add Bookmark Here ²

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Can U Add "Undo Bookmark" Feature? Thank you! ... my Review: Love it, I Don't Live Without It. The added function of being able to Resize the Bookmark Dialog Box (which should be FF default) makes this Addon Even More Valuable. I used to use an addon specifically for resizing the bookmark dialog box... & it was buggy, done forgot its name:) This feature in this addon is Never buggy.

Tab Utilities

Mozilla Is Molasses at reviewing the NEW VERSION Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Mozilla Is Molasses at reviewing the NEW VERSION OF TAB UTILITIES: 1.6PRE4 (Development Version) --> "... not [yet] been reviewed by Mozilla"
For 1.6pre4 Tab Utilities Addon:
1) Scroll to very bottom of this addon's page:)
2) Click dropbox for "Development Channel":)
3) Click "Add To Firefox":)

It sucks when I have to use another Tab Management Addon: Which ALWAYS REMINDS ME WHY I LOVE TAB UTILITIES SO MUCH...
MOZILLA: SPEED... IT... UP!!! PLEASE GIVE PRIORITY TO TOP ESSENTIAL ADDONS!

Etsy

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works For Me. Note:This Is Not an additional search-bar.It will also Not add anything to your addons-manager list....ITS A GOOD THING:) It is Much Simpler:It simply adds Etsy & the "E" icon to the FF built-in Search-bar/Omnibar you already have! (the drop-down menu that has "manage search engines... at the bottom)". When prompted to install it gives an option to "use right away": if you click that & if you, for example, last did a search on google... you will see a google icon get replaced by the Etsy icon: Just type in the Search-bar/Omnibar & hit enter... Congrats your on Etsy now:)Etsy should be there in the drop-down along with google & other searches.

**********************************************************************************
If you are still having problems:

****In FF 18.0.1: I just noticed & tested an added default feature to the drop-down list of search-engines in the search-bar. There's now an option to add the search of the site your on. For FF Addons it gave the generic search (I had to select FF 18 & windows os).But it works.

****You can also try the "Add To Search Bar" addon to add any websites search function to your list of search engines in your pre-existing search-bar/omnibar... including Etsy:) Its my fav but needs updating to FF 18.0.1. Maybe the new feature is replacing it.

****Or try clicking the drop-down of your pre-existing search-bar & click "Manage Search Engines"... from there you can Remove ("Remove" button) any search engine & try re-installing it.

****For XML page guy... Hmmm... Maybe do it manually: Instead of left-clicking the big green "+ Add to Firefox" button... Right-Click it instead & "Save Link As"... this should save it as an ".xpi" file. Windows & other OS's will not recognize it, but doesn't matter, because the .xpi File type is exclusively read by your FF Browser (& nothing else:) to: Manually drag & drop the .xpi file into your Addon Manager. Sounds funky but it works... You should get the regular prompt to install it at that point & should be good to go.

****Make sure there are not addon conflicts especially between ones that both have something to do with searching.

Color toggle

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Always Worked For Me:) Simple Capable Customizable Effective Addon... Its annoying when websites are using a dark background with dark font or a light background with a light colored font... or crazy color combo's that also strain the eyes. Just click to toggle your custom set colors (easy to cutomize), toggle again to restore the page to the original color set. I love this addon!

Converter

spammy? NOT! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

So-called "Spammy" NOT! This is a Unit Converter that is Simple and Easy to use, with a DISABLED BY DEFAULT Superfish-Option for Price Comparison which marries well when this involves products with stated Units of Measurement and different sites are using different Unit Standards. What the previous reviewer thought were "Ads" was just Price Comparisons being shown because the SuperFish Option was clicked. Just read what your clicking and you'll get what you want:)

With or without the extra option enabled, Just highlight a unit of measure, right-click, and the conversion is already there! :) Its in the menu with no further actions needed. This Addon is so simple and a wonderful time saver.

So either way you have Choice. You'll love this addon as I do:)

YesScript

LOVE IT: No Problems Inherent to YesScript Rated 5 out of 5 stars

"will not hold list": Do more research for one's-self or click on the link "Support Email" to the right of "About this Add-on" to resolve issues first-->This addon deserves 4 stars Because-->I did my research before reviewing & giving it a real rating. My case may be particular to my setup with regard to yours with different issues:) I resolved issues beforehand with Quick JS & About:Config custom settings. After which I experienced NO PROBLEMS with YesScript.
ALSO-->While Quick JS that toggles Java is obvious, which addons conflict with what isn't always obvious or intuitive. Again, Please do more research in order to give an actual review -as not doing this artificially skews the over all ratings of addons which is a problem rampant in reviews. For this reason I would suggest to everyone to actually read the reviews to interpret them accurately and use the stars as a guide only: If something works for someone their going to give it a high rating, but if someone is having trouble they may give it a low rating when its not the addons fault.
I've never had a problem with YesScript other than resolving issues not inherent to YesScript as I described above... not only is it one if the 1st addons I install... I've used it for a while now & I LOVE IT! :)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.9). 

Add to Search Bar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Love It Love It Love It... I'm a Power User's Power User of Firefox, need and always make sure I have this addon. Its INVALUABLE.

Keep the following in mind when I say that I only occasionally find a site who's search box is somehow not compatible (nay-sayers need not keep you from this addon). The point? To expound on how USEFUL this Simple & Fantastic addon is & how MUCH it is USED by me:

My interests are wide ranging, from things that are easy to hard to nearly impossible to find and wind up on a wide range of websites... from the highly specialized commercial level retail websites for 3d digital rendering / film making, Airport lighting suppliers for DIY repurposing conversion lighting projects for large aquariums, to mom & pop not-so-functional websites for reviewing chainsaws, saburr bits / grinders, dremmels/parts -for wood art projects for Interior Design & lighting.
I could go on and on, but I'll spare you. Needless to say I'm all-over-the-web & this addon makes it all so much more easy. No more remembering "that one website".... You have it. You can Search it. Immediately.
:)

Quit Firefox

A Real Review - Quit Firefox 0.2 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Ashenmoon is Correct. I would go further and say that the previous "review" to Ashenmoon's is NOT actually a review at all & therefore doesn't even belong here. It is just misplaced Commentary and a Faulty rating on this addon that they say in their first words: they do not understand. The faulty rating artificially skews the overall rating which would only serve to give the browsing public the idea to skip checking out this addon... which is a shame because I find this addon to be Indispensable and remarkable in its Simplicity. And It Says what it Does and Does what it Says -all without ever having caused any compatibility issues for me at all. Want a kill-switch for FF? This is it. I've been a longtime user and fan of this Addon.

The Faulty Rating & Commentary VS. Actual Features & Benefits:
1) "I do not get what it is good for. I have a close button why need this?" ...If you don't understand it don't give it a 2 star "rating" & proceed to write a "review" about what you don't get. Work to understand it instead:

a) It is for use on occasion when you want or need to directly BYPASS the confirmation dialog about closing/saving, while still being able to reserve the built-in Firefox option to confirm/save for when you want or need it. The former is a distinctly different Feature than the latter. They are not the same thing. It Adds to the functionality of Firefox -thats why its called an Add-On.

b) A quick ONE Button shutdown is also more helpful for laptop users. Laptops have less resources than a desktop, especially older ones which can grind to a halt... its a Pain-in-the-neck to have to wait for several minutes to get the regular close button to "close"... and then wait several more for the confirmation dialog to pop-up and then close that as well. If I don't want to wait & have autosaved sessions, I just hit the FF kill button which IS Quit Firefox 0.2.

2) "What is really needed...' '...set the computer to shutdown after it is completely closed" -Even if it were possible for a browser to send a command to your computer to shut itself off
- this would be DIFFERENT ADDON ENTIRELY.
Even if one would add the suggestion as an Option, it is also just a personal preference, NOT a "fault" of the addon & therefore not a reason to give a 2 star rating to an addon that Says what it IS, and Does what IT Says. And it Does it Well:)

Murdoch Alert

A Real Review Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Props to the developer who knows theres nothing wrong with being able to be aware of content!! Kudos!!
I love the Freedom To Choose & I love this Addon. I Chose it. I didn't add it so I could write a FAKE REVIEW & then delete the Addon. That would be pulp-commentary, not an actual review. Mozilla should fully support this Addon & even one that alerted to left-wing affiliates instead, because whatever our point of reference, we all deserve the Freedom to Choose.

RE Banning this Addon: My review is that I like this Addon and it is welcome because its about choice:
Should book stores be "above" the political also & stop providing a drop-down-box select tool to filter which books of which perspective we want or don't want to browse or read? Should I not be able to narrow my choices or should choice be eliminated totally. Maybe they should stop selling political media altogether. Remote Controls for our TV? Lets remove the channel changing option on it so that the TV can be "above" politics, or have it choose for us. Heck lets ban all politics from any and all news & affiliates, tech, conversation or gossip for that matter... then we would be free to make No-Choice-what-so-ever... We would be So tooootally FREE!!! Can't you Feel the Freedom?! Free at last. Hmph.
Freedom: banning itself since the birth of democracy. See... it. does. not. fit. This is why this Addon should be & be Fully Supported by Mozilla. It Adds. It does not take away.

The ban-it-attitude is why democracy can suffer so much. No one should ban this Addon because Exercising "Freedom" to ban Freedom is nonsensical and absurd. Its an oxymoron. I use this Addon as a tool to filter content that I, as a free person, consider to be corrupt. If I were conservative I'd want one to do the same for progressive media owned sites. Either way, Again, Kudos to the developer. Lets get it Fully Supported:)

Tab Utilities

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

LOVE Tab Utilities WHEN ITS COMPATIBLE with the LATEST FIREFOX... (please update to FF 11.0)

Unfortunately I'm having to use TabMixPlus which is Great, but HEAVY

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.3). 

Bookmark Favicon Changer

custom favicon Too Small to be recognizable/useful Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Needs Option to have custom Favicons Bigger than what is standard in your addon. It was so small that the simple pattern in the pic I chose was completely unrecognizable. Until a cange is made, the addon is not useful for me at all.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.59). 

Memory Fox

Linux/Ubuntu -Make Available ! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Please make Memory Fox Available for the Ubuntu/Linux Platform:) !!! I absolutely depended on this addon while running the windows OS... after years of use I was tired of 'windows'. I love Ubuntu and want the advantage that Memory Fox gives! That would make for an even more Powerful OS-Firefox Duo:)
