My Reviews

Feedly - Beyond Google Reader

Doesn't work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Does not work for me. I ended up making my own Feedly button, with the "Custom Buttons" addon (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/custom-buttons/). I just created a new button with the following code section, to get a button that opens Feedly in a new tab:

var myUrl = "http://cloud.feedly.com";
var tBrowser = document.getElementById("content");
var tab = tBrowser.addTab(myUrl);
tBrowser.selectedTab = tab;

Google Shortcuts - All Google Services at a glance

Nice addon! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's a very useful addon!! Thanks for the effort and for sharing it with the world!

@litrax: Seriously, use your brain: It's not fair to vote it down because you don't know that Google Docs automatically redirects to Google Drive. The Icon for the Play Store is there too, it's still named "Android Market".

Arboreal

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I find it very useful. But it does not work for me anymore with Firefox 6.02.

UI Fixer

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks for this great addon! It's so nice to be able to move the status bar icons to the bars at the top!!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4.3). 

Tree Style Tab

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A great addon! I like it a lot!!

@Piro:
Are you, by any chance, planning to add group coloring, like Tab Kit does it?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.11.2011021901). 

Default FullZoom Level

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A great addon. Thank you! :-)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.4.13). 

Smilie Inserter

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Nice.
Works even in TB3 if you disable the compatibility check.

You can combine this addon with the downloadable animated skype emoticons (https://developer.skype.com/Download/SkypeEmoticons) :-)

The link given by Ralphbusdriver provides a newer version (http://supersilly.com/~greg/storage/smilie_inserter-0.7.0-tb.xpi)

@N N
When you compase a message, you'll see a new smilie-button. Just click it, click "change" to set the image directory and you're all set

Send Filter

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Nice addon :-)

But the infos here are out of date.
Version 1.0.3 (TB 3.0.*) is already available: http://www.xzer.net/harvest/sendfilter/

And it seems that this functionality is going to be implemented into TB 3 soon:

FireQuery

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Nice!!!
Thanks a lot for this great tool :-)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3). 

FirePalette

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

What a nice idea!

Unfortunately it won't show up in my Firebug 1.4.5.

Are you still working on it? And is there any chance that you are going to integrate a color picker with more ... uhm... colors? ;-)

WAVE Toolbar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A nice addon! Thank you very much for creating it!

The only thing I'm sorely missing is a toolbar button to toggle showing of WAVE Toolbar on and off.

I don't like to permanently sacrifice screen space, and I can't use the key sequence "ALT+V, T, W" to to toggle it, because the addon Web Developer Toolbar already begins with a "W" (but has a button to toggle it). So I have to use the mouse...

So I hope there are more spoiled and picky users out there, who will agree with me, to get this feature rollin' :-P

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1). 

Search Marker

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great! Is there any chance to make your addon work together with the "HighlightAll"-Addon (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4240) to generate the tickmarks when one selects a word? :-) That would be so awesome!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.5). 

HighlightAll

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Nice! It would be perfect if it could detect the 'Search Marker'-Addon (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1823) and trigger the creation of the tickmarks on the side of the page when selecting a word :-)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4). 

BabelFish Instant Translation

Great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It works like a charm and is much more unobtrusive than the qtl-extension that I used for my translation needs, until I found this little gem. And it doen't show any annoying ads! Nice :-)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.57). 

Fast Search by Surf Canyon

Doesn't show up in Google Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Nice addon, but unfortunately it doesn't show up in my FF3 in Google or MSN. It only shows up in Yahoo.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.0). 

Xdebug Helper

Nice! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Nice little addon! :-)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1).
