Mozilla Labs: Prospector - Speak Words

Annoying and still leaves a huge void Rated 2 out of 5 stars

The one thing I still miss about Chrome after a few months now with Firefox is the way the URL bar works. This is one of many extensions I've tried with Firefox. I don't like the auto word suggestions -- just url suggestions please. It seems to often lose preferences so that the auto-fill often just stops working. I don't mind that it selects the first suggestion upon enter -- if that url or suggestion was autofilled, but then it needs to stop suggesting tabs that are already open. If I wanted an open tab, then I would just go to that tab. And sometimes entering search terms doesn't automatically search for them upon enter; I sometimes have to hit enter two or three times for it to work. Why can't any of the extension writers (or FF itself) get this feature right?!?!

TabCloud

Nice, but not as good as in Chrome Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I've used this a lot in Chrome, and now that I've switched to Firefox, I am still using it. It's not as flexible in FF as in Chrome, in that I can't drag tabs between the bookmarked groups (or between a current window and saved group). That's a shame, as it was something I used a lot in Chrome.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6). 

Last Tab Close Button

Works great Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I wanted it to work like Chrome, where closing the last tab also closes the app. At first, I thought it didn't work; it just cleared the current page and left a blank tab. But then I realized I had to specifically set the extension's options to close the window (duh)...and it works!
