My Reviews

Supertab

Feature Request Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Please make it show the addons tab when it is open or if it is pinned.

I put this here because I couldn't find a way to do feature requests on the GitHub site.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.67.1-signed.1-signed).  This user has other reviews of this add-on.

FoxTab

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Installed 1.4.10. Still doesn't work, but interfers with other addons.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4.9.1-signed).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Restart Button

Works Perfectly Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works just fine on my machine. Using FF28.0, Kubuntu 13.10 & FF28.0, Windows 7.

NewScrollbars (aka NoiaScrollbars)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I like it. 5 stars.
Features I'd like to see: Background color gradient in Customizable v2 and the option of arrows for the buttons, with color and color gradient still applicable.
It's still five stars, even without those features.

Tab Kit 2nd Edition

Not good Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Is incompatible with Vertical Toolbar when using it in vertical mode.

I keep my tab bar on the left and my toolbar on the right. This is not possible with this extension. It glues the vertical toolbar and TK2-vertical together. I can have them on the right or left, but not right and left. This makes it unuseable IMO.

DownThemAll!

Great Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is the best download manager I can find.

I had the size mismatch happen to me once. It was because the file said it was 3.9GB but it was only 3.6GB.
I found another source for the download and it worked fine. The file really was supposed to be 3.9GB. This may not be the source of others mismatches but it is worth checking when they get them. It might be as easy to solve as it was for me.

I also have no problem browsing the interweb while downloading. But I never download more than half-a-dozen at once (they finish downloading faster than I can add new ones).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.16.1-signed). 

FoxTab

Does Not Work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This used to be a beautiful Addon. But now it simply doesn't work. No icon in toolbar. Clicking icon in statusbar or context menu does nothing. Keyboard shortcuts do nothing. This is in desperate need of updating. I am using FF 28.0 in Kubuntu 13.10.

Vertical Tabs

Good Addon, Except Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Good addon except it causes the bar at the bottom left of the window, that gives the url of link that is hovered over, to be dark with no text or text the same color as the bar. Kubuntu 13.10, FF 28.0.

Supertab

Excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great replacement for, and improvement over, LastTab. I was really getting tired of going to the tab closest to the one I closed. Now it goes to the last tab I was using. I like the longer list of tabs in MRU order. My opinion on making the list clickable is: If someone wants to click the list, why not just click the tab itself instead of putting in the extra step of calling up the SuperTab list?

Javascript View

What do I have to do to make it work?

Config Descriptions

I Like It Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Looking good.

Google Bottom Search Bar

Perfect Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works perfectly on FF 28.0 on Kubuntu 13.10. Great extension.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.1-signed.1-signed). 

Active Stop Button

Necessary Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a necessary extension, IMO, and update 1.5.1 fixed the problem with EscCloseTab compatibility. Outstanding.

Active Stop Button

Thanks Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The update to version 1.5.0 stopped EscCloseTab from working so I had to revert to version 1.4.10. Other than that, I think it's a great extension.

3/8/2014

Thank you for the fix. It rates a five.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5.0.1-signed). 

EscCloseTab

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I think this is one of the best extensions there is. I rely on it a lot. Unfortunately, it quit working when FF was updated about two updates back.

I have FF 27.0.1 on Kubuntu distro of Linux.

I went to the website and studied the code there, but can find nothing wrong (I am not an expert). Hopefully the problem will be fixed soon because I miss using the escape key to close a tab. Until it's fixed I guess I'll just have to use the mouse or touchpad to click the tab close x on the tab (sigh).

It was definitely a five when it was working.

Update 3/6/2014:

I failed to mention before that I had the problem on Windows 7 & XP, also.

But I found the problem, it was the Active Stop Button extension update to version 1.5.0.

Simple fix is to revert to Active Stop Button 1.4.10, or stop using one or the other.

Bloody Red theme pack

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Although it works good as installed, it really messed things up when I changed it to the gradient version. I guess it is not totally compatible with FF26.0 on Kubuntu after all.

Bloody Red theme pack

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is compatible with FF 26.0 on Kubuntu 13.10.

The text for Extended Statusbar and Forecastfox is still black which makes them very hard to read. But that is the only issue I see that might be a problem.

I think this is a great add-on. Need it for Thunderbird, too.

New Tab Homepage

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works exactly as claimed. Perfectly.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.3.1-signed). 

Styles Tuner

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The claim that knowledge of html and css is not necessary to use this is just plain incorrect. I know a little about both, not an expert -- only a little knowledge -- more than none, and I totally messed up a web site display. Had to disable not only this but Stylish as well, restart, enable Stylish, restart. Unless you have more than a little knowledge of CSS and html I suggest you leave this alone.

If you want to have a dark background with light text I suggest using Color Toggle. I use it and it works, I was looking for something a little better, this is not it.

Vertical Tabs

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great extension. Still waiting for the tab grouping function, though.

For those of you wanting to autohide vertical tabs try this extension https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/hide-tabbar/
it works great.
