Excellent Add-on and a very sufficient alternative to Pocket (aka ReadItLater) for people who don't care for its clutter and synchronisation features.
Here's a small feature request: Please add a way to add all active tabs, loaded as well as unloaded ones (excluding any 'pinned' tabs of course). Something like Ctrl-Shift-clicking the + button.
Works great & is much less resource demanding than something like HTCP.
Just one request: please add an option to modify the "tabsalwaysintitlebar.appmenu" variable from within the browser (thus making this neat little extension more flexible & also indirectly more compatible with one or two other minimalistic extensions, like "Movable Firefox Button").
I hereby second the question if it would be possible to make Link Location Bar compatible with Location²..This user has a previous review of this add-on.

This extension works well as described. No more, no less.
It doesn't move the icon from its default position (the same as the "globe" icon) and it doesn't create an additional background (there's no default background anyway), so I've no clue what the first reviewer was referring to.
The only (minor) issue I'm having with it is that, while (without the extension) the default globe icon changes into the "lock" icon when the page is secure/encrypted (and stays that way), the extension seems to override this (inconsistently) and shows the site's favicon instead of the lock (although, sometimes, after reloading the tab, staying on a page for a while or switching between tabs, the lock icon shows again instead. Similarly, when the lock icon is visible, reloading or switching tabs sometimes changes it back to their favicon).
If this could be solved uncomplicatedly (although I'm not sure how) or at least made consistent, I'd give it 5 stars. (From my point of view, it would make more sense to see the site's favicon, but of course ymmv.)
I like that it doesn't touch the globe icon as the default icon for sites/tabs that don't have their own. (The only other similar extension I could find, named "Site Favicon in Urlbar" (v4.6) modifies this to be the default "dotted square" icon, which is ugly and often hard to see.)
Love the add-on, it's been working perfectly - until the latest update, now the search bar doesn't hide anymore when leaving it empty without searching for anything, the icon on the bar is kind of wrong (it seems to be the wrong type of button or something) and its tooltip says "&autosizer.button.tooltip;". Additionally, searching overrides the currently active tab instead of creating a new one like before.
Re-installing the current version doesn't help, but reverting to the previous version solves any issues.
The option dialogue still works either way.
I really like Grab and Drag, it's one of the few add-ons with an actual beneficial bonus in my opinion and it works a lot better than similar add-ons (or scripts, like for Chrome).
It's pretty smooth at scrolling, as well as pretty easy to use.
There's just one thing I'd like to propose for a future version - that is: a "max sensitivity" mode, probably with an even shorter time and smaller deceleration sensitivity, making it even easier to initiate the momentum for people who are not fast enough to coordinate their actions. Basically, this should always initiate the momentum as long as the time between dragging the cursor and releasing the mouse button is shorter than a certain amount of milliseconds (let's say 250 ms), no matter which one happens first, so even if one would stop dragging first and then release the button, it would still initiate the momentum at the last cursor speed recorded before dragging stopped. I'm proposing this because it still happens about every 5th time I want to scroll, dragging too fast and releasing the button a bit too late, so it doesn't do anything and I have to do it again - as I experience times when I'm obviously better at coordinating myself and times when I'm just as bad and consequently fuzzy at it.
Also, on a side note, scrolling *has* become a bit "stuttering" with the latest versions of Firefox. I'm not sure if that in particular is Firefox's or GaD's fault or some compatibility issue (or even some people's graphics drivers) - maybe a bit of everything, but scrolling via the mouse wheel or the scroll bars induces a very similar effect (with FF8), so it's definitely not just something solely GaD was to blame for.
Looking great! This immediately became one of my primary favourite appearance-related extensions.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0).
