Open Link in New Tab

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I had wanted this mainly to open links from a search screen (POST) so that the back button doesn't crap out. Not much use without that.
It then started to open every single link in new tabs.
For example, the application I am using is JIRA, so the results in the search are within the same domain etc.
Otherwise a well-written app.

Firefox Sync for Firefox 3.5/3.6

Xmarks puh-leease Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I have tried to get this addon to work time and again, as I would trust a Mozilla addon more than any other...but this truly is a BADly written addon, never works at times. Throw it out the window and please absorb XMarks which is flawless.
Does Mozdev read these reviews ??
I am pasting this review again as my previous review got lost..didn't know older reviews are hidden !
And I was comparing Firefox Sync to Google Browser Sync, both are crap.
Finally I guess Mozilla would tie their shoe laces on this, which they have been taking so lightly.
For the people who gave us a portable browser, shouldn't they have spruced up the sync stuff ?

I have also tried MS Live Mesh to sync all my Firefox instances across many machines, but it craps out as only one user can be profiled in a folder at any given time. Also Mesh was a ridiculous resource hog.
Then I tried Dropbox, and I read about someone saying to just sync the bookmark.htm file...problem with these sync apps is that you sync folders, not files. If someone has a ggood way of Sync'ing using Dropbox, please let us know, at least until Dropbox files bankruptcy.

Toodledo

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Unusable in the two attempts I have made. This addon doesn't do anything (does not add a task at all)
What a waste of time for a very basic bug, unfixed for many months.

AniWeather

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

just looks nice. apart from that there is no sync between the actual weather.com numbers and what this shows in the pop-up. When the FF client of a website can't see eye to eye, don't see any use for this. btw, all the weather forecasts from all sites are bogus for the most part.

Duplicate Tab

bring this back ! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I would definitely prefer this to FF3's way of ctrl + mouse to tab area which works like crap.

Gonna try to edit the rdf. Never understood why the heck extension developers limit their target versions like this when they dont even know what the changes will be in the next version and this involuntarily render itself useless.

OpenBook

there is an alternative Rated 3 out of 5 stars

For those who had a hard time with incompatible extensions whenever the mozilla gurus release a new version:

You can do this on your own in 1 line, ref:
http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=650888

The main use of this extension (at least to me) was that it made the keyword field visible again. For whatever reason, the mozillons decided keywords arent needed while adding a bookmark-go figure !

Like one of the comments said, FF useless without openbook...just goes to show how these FF guys
are taking another step for us to lean towards chrome by assuming what we need and dont need instead of making it configurable.

Bookmarks Menu Tool Button

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Add Bookmark Here ²

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

really needed this coz some fool developer didnt bother including the keyword box while adding a bookmark.

Tried three times and this addon would not appear anywhere.

Jeteye

Not a review for this Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Following up on a comment from BarkingTuna, please note that these crappy screenshots are the result of the unfortunate decision of the mozilla developers to use jquery-lightbox. We have hated it from day one, and this lousy third-party product just perpetuates disillusions about nice addons.

Hope the mozdevs would rid of it soon. We cant do crap with the images, cant blow it up when needed. Is anyone listening ??

Also, for reviews like this and the other, that arent related to the product, shouldnt there be a concept of neutral rating so it doesnt affect the rating of this addon ? Can you guys pioneer this ?

ColorfulTabs

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

very nice & innovative, only problem was that there was STILL no way to know which is the active tab !! If only there was a way to assign a constant color to the active tab this would have been so much more useful...
