Great extension, and with current version of browser and extension, I like the fact it respects fairly well the presentation of the original page.
I am using it on Windows 7 French with Firefox 27 French, typically asking for translations to English (Google usually does a better job than if I ask for translations to French). I see a very minor problem with the dialog box that appears. It says (all in French):
Traduire la page
Du : auto-détection
En : anglais
( ) Le faire
The top is OK, although I would prefer to replace "En" by "Vers" (litterally "toward" or "to"). But the problem comes with the checkmark and its description "Le faire automatiquement" (do it automatically). That description takes two lines and is double-spaced, with the result that the lower third of the buttons are chopped off by the dialog box.
Would it be possible to either:
– widen the translation box so "Le faire automatiquement (do it automatically)" would appear on one line, or
– increase the height of the translation box so buttons are not cut.
Many useful things, notably the display of EXIF data and reverse find of images.
One little bug I have: I keep update notices at off and update manually once in a while. When I do, it always insists that "there is an update available for PictuTools", even though I have the latest version. Obviously, when I click on the button, no update happens... and the flag isn't reset so I still get the same warning message.
Interesting little extension. The default configuration brings mostly what I like about the Find box. To me, one of the most interesting feature is the fact ctrl-F toggles the bar on and off.One question, thought about the General Options. In the Findbar Mode block, the selection is on the first bullet (Use Quick Findbar when I start typing for text), which is greyed out. Hence if I select another option (ex.: Always use normal Findbar), then I can't come back to the first bullet. Is this normal?
BTW, I use Firefox 23 (and Palemoon 19.2) in French on Windows 7 64bit French, and v.1.3 of this extension
Absolument pas essentiel, mais néanmoins fantastique, car il s'avère utile dans les sites où la boîte de recherche est toute petite ou difficile à trouver. La seule toute petite amélioration que j'aimerais c'est de pouvoir redimensionner la boîte de dialogue, soit dans une préférence chrome, soit idéalement à la volée comme pour la boîte de recherche de Firefox.
In a nutshell (for non-French-speaking users): not essential, but wonderful addition to my URL bar.
What I find most interesting about this extension is its "customizability". My own preferences and additional customizations, as well as experience with your version for Thunderbird would suggest the following options:
1. Display title in title bar the traditional way while still using the Firefox orange button (I do that with userChrome, so I have small tabs and still see the full title.
2 Display full menus under the Firefox button, just like you did under the Thunderbird button.
3. Luxury would be to have a few colour options just like the Thunderbird button has.
It's a great extension, but for the last 3 weeks, it suffers from one problem. When the extension is loaded, Youtube adds a redirection notice when one clicks on a link. I use the current version of FF (16.0.2) on Windows 7 (French). I can't say for sure, but I don't think the problem started specifically when FF 16 arrived, but rather when Youtube "upgraded" yet again its interface.
Steps to reproduce the bug:
1. Install Firefox (current version, 16.0.2) and the current version of Video DownloadHelper (4.9.11).
2. Load a Youtube page such as this one
3. Click on the link that appears in the video description.
The link is listed as https://plus.google.com/+NixiePixel and "usually" shows like this in the status bar, until you click on it. Then it becomes http://www.youtube.com/redirect...
4. You will land on a page with a brown bar and a "Redirection Notice" warning you that you will be sent elsewhere and giving you the choice to do that or return to Youtube's welcome page.
5. Click on the link and you'll finally land there.
Now, remove or de-activate the Video DownloadHelper extension and do the same. You'll go straight from step 3 (clicking on a link) to step 5.
A quick glance at the process let me think that the redirection page is loaded for a 1/10 second and that it loads the page one wants.
P.S. I tried to leave the comment on the forum, but it seems to be off-the-hook since July.
I installed v. 6.7. So far so good. It allowed me to drop a few extensions and get what I want: favicons and colours for secure sites.
I also notice on your screenshot that you have a dark-coloured URL bar for secure sites. Is it a Unix-only feature? I don't see it with Windows 7.
In the same vein, there is one idea I really like: a light yellow address bar for secure sites. Is this a possibility for a future version?
