My Reviews

Tabs Menu

It'd be nicer if you could rearrange tabs vertically Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I like it. It'd be nicer if you could rearrange tabs vertically. The existing horizontal rearranging of tabs on native Firefox only lets you see 9 tabs at a time and with shortened titles.

Tab Mix Plus

How does it help you rearrange tabs? Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I tried tab mix plus for a short while.

Don't know why i didn't put 'tab' as a keyword to search addons before. Perhaps cos i was searching for 'no tabs'. Anyway Tab Mix Plus looks like that the 'no tabs' addon which has disappeared where it might save on RAM?

On the downside i had to uninstall 'Tab Mix Plus' cos it wouldn't let me close Firefox without trying to close all my 25 tabs! Luckily Firefox warned me. When I uninstalled it, then I was able to close Firefox and still get to keep my 25 tabs.

Perhaps somewhere in the options it fixes that?

I can't give a proper review because I've not tried it properly. Maybe I'm a bit lazy to just give it 2 stars, but when I spend more time working on it, and learn how to use it, perhaps I'll find i can hope to give it more stars?

Anyway I was disappointed that I couldn't find how it helps you organise and rearrange tabs.

Downloads is now in the library. Can I suggest a good place for tabs would be in the library too?

When I click on 'List all tabs' I can't move the tabs up and down. Instead I have to do it the native slow sidesways way instead.

CacheViewer Continued

I can enlarge the preview window Rated 4 out of 5 stars

One benefit of the current fault is that I've noticed that I can enlarge the preview window. Was this feature there before?
I should have noticed it, after all I've moved my mouse pointer to enlarge the picture within the small window a number of times.

BTW I'm posting this on 21st January at am 6:36am GMT since The Add-ons forum is on GMT-7=MST then I predict this posting will say its 20th January

Is It Compatible?

4 stars I thought it did nothing but I didn't spot the numbers Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I've installed IIC because the install for FF18 didn't warn me that CacheViewer would be incompatible!

Where's the button though on IIC? because so far IIC has done nothing, hasn't checked anything.

Hold on I see some numbers next to add-ons. You've got to mention this in the add-ons page. Ok now your star rating goes up to 4 stars.

Hey but why does IIC say IIC is only compatible up to FF8!?


Ramback 1.0 doesn't seem to have a noticeble difference Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I have to keep clicking on Tools/Clear Caches when my own hard drive finally light stops. The hard drive light flashes some more then i have to keep doing this, which doesn't seem to have a noticeble difference. What I find more effective is closing down Firefox and starting again. Try not to have too many memory/processor hungry tabs running like Yahoo Mail and

I have been using it on FF18 and 17, 16 i think

Add-ons page says last updated 20 December 2012 but its the same version 1.0 I've been using for the past few months, why?

CacheViewer Continued

We all depend on this great developer Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I updated to FF18 on January 10
Firefox 18 was released on January 8, 2013.
I was about to write the below review when I read FF18 had an incompatibility problem, although the install never mentioned incompatibilties. "I don't think cacheviewer 0.8 is working properly anymore. Its not showing any pictures, all the MIME types are blank, and there is no information in the top right corner. I last used it a few weeks ago and it worked fine. Perhaps its the Firefox 18 upgrade."

To the developer, keep up the good work. We're all depending on you. You're the only one making this crucial tool for Firefox cache divers. I was considering it was about I time tried out Chrome. Why did Mozilla make it so difficult to look at files in the cache unlike Microsoft with IE?

To Scott Ferguson on October 14, 2012 "Reload cache entries" in the bottom right corner is the refresh button, surely?

CacheViewer Continued

Great! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Most of the time it works fine and shows pic in top left of screen but occassionally when I right click 'open in browser' the browser couldn't find it even though said on disk. I'd then search cache myself to find the picture going on byte size to identify it.
It would also be nice in the future if it could show multiple thumbnails like windows explorer rather than just one.
