Favorite Add-On Rated 5 out of 5 stars
For some reason, Vimperator stopped working a while back, when I updated Firefox or for some unknown reason.
Fortunately, a new download from the home page fixed my problem.
In the meantime, I realized what a helpful add-on it is.
My favorite features are the that it makes opening and closing tabs---as well as switching between them---effortless; that it does the same for adding and managing bookmarks; and that you can instantly duplicate an existing tab or "undo" closing an old one.
General page and link navigation is awesome, too.
Too much good stuff to list!
Thanks a million to the developers.
Beautiful, only minor deficiencies Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This is a beautiful advancement by Mozilla. Aesthetically, it's almost perfect, but--at least for me on Ubuntu 12.04--the text becomes less sharp when the document is enlarged. And my big pet peeve is that I can't find a way to view the document properties. But, all in all, it's nearly perfect.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6.39.1-signed.1-signed).
Practically Useless Rated 1 out of 5 stars
This addon is a nice idea and seems well made inasmuch as it can do. However, I am uninstalling it because it is practically useless; most families aren't trying to web filter themselves or tiny innocents who need constant supervision anyway--they are trying to keep older kids out of trouble!
So I wish that there were some simple password protected configuration options for a multiuser sytem. Then this, perhaps, could be a secure family filtering solution on Linux, where a password is required to install any web browser besides firefox. But even then, filtering addons to firefox don't seem much use; can't they be bypassed by any user just by starting firefox in safe mode?
Sorry to give this such a low rating; I'm thankful for and impressed by the effort. What would really benefit families, though, is a free, effective, and straightforward content filtering program for Linux--one that could have different settings for different user accounts.
