My Reviews

Classic Theme Restorer (Customize UI)

Yes! Now I can switch to Fx29 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Australis may be nice looking, but the user experiance? ChromeClone!
I want a Mozilla browser, not a Google copy. This addon gives me back my "Mozilla feel"
Thank you very much!

Just as info:

TabGroups Menu

Works up to FX 15 (Aurora atm), Fails on FX 16 due to Theme changes Rated 5 out of 5 stars

version 0.9.1 works just fine under Firefox 15, (now Aurora) but in
FX 16 due to the Australis theme (see bug 732583 in bmo) the Menu entries as well as the functionality on the TabGroup Button is missing. A update would be nice.

About Startup

Version 0.1.9 needs update for FX 14 (Nightly) after 2012-03-20 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

There seems to be a change in how restartless Add-ons are called / started since 2012-03-20. Before (Mar.19) it worked as advertised, but since then it's not starting any more. bootstrap.js is loaded, compartment is created, but then, nada.
Seems to be a jetpack issue. Aurora (Fx13) and Beta (Fx12) is fine.

Zombie Keys (Multilanguage Keyboard)

Makes multilingual use of Firefox so much easier.

Old Default Image Style

Good! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is just one of the point-cases where (we) the users just shake our heads.
There should have been and option to switch styles and everything woud be OK, but no! They (the involved dev.people) didn't even look at "about:logo" !
Thanks for your work.

about:telemetry

Nice, but... Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It stopped working in Nightly 11.0a1 after 2011-Dec-09 with an entry in errorlog:
v.count not defined, Location: jar:[addon-id]/bootstrap.js, Line 101.

Extension Options Menu

Oh! Shiny! There's even more nice things Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Wow! Thanks for the new features in 2.0. Thanks for making sure it works on Nightly (and Aurora, and Beta), too.
This is one of the add-ons I would really miss, if it wouldn't work.
Thanks again.

Link Status Redux

Thanks! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works fine on Aurora (10.0a2) and Nightly (11.0a1).
Kudos for getting this Add-on to work beyond Fx 4.

VisitChecker

Good and Working (up to nightly[11]), but ... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It works, but only on static links. Any links inserted via JavaScript are ignored. This is caused by the way you insert your listener.
see https://developer.mozilla.org/en/XPCOM_Interface_Reference/nsIXULBrowserWindow#setOverLink%28%29
for a better way to get the link the mouse is over.

UI Fixer

This brings back the configurability on FX4+ Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks! As much as I like tha 'new' interface of FX4 (and further nightlies aka 4.2alpha), there is something missing:
You can't easily change some things. Here come the "Firefox 4 UI Fixer" quite handily: without mucking around in userChrome.css / userChrome.js or modifying a theme. it enables a user to adapt FX to his/her likes.
An Idea to think about would be to enable the user to change the background color of the FX-Menu-Button.
Anyway, thanks a lot.

Oxygen KDE

Hopefull for Fx 4 rc Rated 4 out of 5 stars

on Fx 3.6 it's simply great. on the Fx 4 betas not so.
The trouble with Fx 4 beta is mostly the NOT stable base. It changes from bata to beta, from nightly to nightly, it's NOT funny atm. As soon as Fx 4 goes to release-candidate comes the time to get to work on Fx 4 compatible versions.
Thanks for the work.

Littlefox for Firefox

1.8.67 works on Fx4.0b9pre.20101222 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

works on FX4.0b9pre / linux 64bit... mostly:in the Addon-manager (about:addons) the right column, where the interesting data is, is too wide, making the window wider doesn't help me, beyond 1650px works. Zooming with [Ctrl]+[-] also gives me back the right edge, but then it's to small to read. Nether the less, I'll give you five of five for years of hassle-free browsing even on small screens. Thanks.

Ooops ver. 0.4 is not available? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Version 0.4 is announced, shown on here AMO, but it's not on the DL-Server.
I'll try again tomorrow. Thanks for the good work so far.

UnHide fields 3

Thanks! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's back! It makes some sh..t much easier.
Google, Yahoo, Forums, other web-apps, esp. those in development have sometimes the need to be modified in their forms, and greasemonkey is while good, not the answer for everything.
Thanks

Bookmarks Toolbar Button

Perfect! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Just one question remains: why is this not a built-in?
Thanks for this. Just like your Locationbar² for this implements a missing feature.

Session Manager

It work, and works, adn works... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

After some trouble with other session-managements this is the one I really like.
It works. And it works fine. Rich in Options when one need them and no hassle in daily use. Just as I like things. Especially nice are the import options. Thanks for the excellent work.

Leet Key

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

no trouble with Version 1.4.3 on FX3.5; it just works as announced ;)

Work Offline

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks for updating more than just the em:maxVersion.
This Addon makes switching on/offline just so much more comfortable than the menu entry.
There's not even a built-in short-cut/key-combo in the menu for it, would it be possible for you to add one in your next update (also raising maxVersion to 3.6, at last in the devel-versions it works) ?

Form History Control

Rated 5 out of 5 stars
