My Reviews

FindBar Tweak

Makes the search bar look nearly identical to the one in Google Chrome Rated 5 out of 5 stars

While I much preferred to use a style to achieve this, changes within Firefox itself made it break. This extension fixes that.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.9). 

OmniSidebar

Clean, simple and unobtrusive, a good replacement for All-in-One Sidebar Rated 5 out of 5 stars

While AiOS is still the go-to extension for adding a sidebar to Firefox, it isn't without its flaws, which is more because of changes in Firefox itself. For instance, personas don't work fully in AiOS's grippie without hacking the browser and turning the entire chrome transparent.

Omnisidebar doesn't have any of those flaws: while there is still a grippie you can click to bring the sidebar into view, it isn't visible at all times like in AiOS (or SeaMonkey, for that matter). Because there isn't a visible grippie, personas still work just fine (since they are disabled in private windows, this is important).

In addition, this extension is updated frequently, while the creator of AiOS is having trouble updating the extension nowadays.

(Also, I noticed that Omnisidebar's settings are being synced between computers, which is also a huge plus.)

So, much like the author's other extension Beyond Australis provides the features Omnibar does (combined URL and search bar, which I still don't understand why it isn't already built into Firefox), Omnisidebar provides many of the features AiOS does.

Tampermonkey

Text is too big Rated 4 out of 5 stars

(Revising this review since I now have a more recent version of Firefox.)

After using Tampermonkey on Chrome for a while now, I find this fork for Firefox to work exactly like its Chrome counterpart, which is a good thing since I was meaning to dump Greasemonkey for a while now.

One issue that I have is that the text is rather big, making it 80% of what it is right now would be nice.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.0.5054). 

Stylish Sync

Many styles are not synced Rated 4 out of 5 stars

By installing Stylish-Custom I notice that a very few number of styles have the tag SyncBackup, and I assume these are the styles that are synced. Compared to the number of styles I have installed (about 100) it's not a lot.

Luckily I can always backup and restore my styles from the addon's options menu, which is a lot easier than to do it from Stylish-Custom.

Personal Menu (Personal Firefox Button)

Classic Theme Restorer integration Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I have been using this addon since Firefox 4. In conjunction with the More Tools extension, it is an excellent way to add these options to the menu.

It would be great if this addon could integrate with Classic Theme Restorer, though. The button this addon creates does not replace the one from CTR, and the button from CTR can be placed exactly as it was in previous versions of Firefox. Status-4-Evar, Private Tab and Classic Toolbar Buttons already integrate with CTR too.

FOXSCAPE

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love this so much, I even switched back to Firefox 3.6.3.

Think you can make a compatible version for Seamonkey? Because Seamonkey still (vaguely) looks like Netscape.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.01).
