My Reviews

Tabs Always In Titlebar

Doesn't completely work with custom menu button Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I use userChrome.css to make the Firefox button smaller. This extension works sometimes, but other times the tabs are on top of the menu button or the menu button is missing completely.

Status-4-Evar

Nice Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Good to get it back. The "looking up host" and "contacting" stuff was useful. And anyone using NoScript and a cookie manager is a sucker.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2010.10.20.02). 

Tab Killer

Tabs are stupid Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you. Tabs waste valuable screen space just to duplicate task bar functionality, and a bunch of Firefox functions are still stupidly hard-coded to use tabs even when I've disabled them in every possible place.

RefControl

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I made a simple change to make this work for "from" sites instead of "to" sites (but not both). For example, I have images.google.com set to "forge" and "normal" for everything else. Now my RefControl only changes the referrer when opening a link from Google Images to another site.

Load \extensions\{455D905A-D37C-4643-A9E2-F6FEFAA0424A}\components\refcontrolComp.js into a text editor and find the onModifyRequest() function. You'll find a 'for' loop "for (var s = oHttpChannel.URI.host; s != ""; s = s.replace(/^.*?(\.|$)/, ""))". Just change oHttpChannel.URI.host to oHttpChannel.referrer.host, save, and restart Firefox. The list of hosts in your RefControl options now apply to the referring (from) site instead of the site being linked to.

If you want to get technical, oHttpChannel.referrer is sometimes null, but it won't hurt anything and you don't need to worry about it.

Mail Redirect

More comments on Thunderbird 3 compatibility Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Even the 20091118 version doesn't work perfectly with Thunderbird 3. You can't add the "Redirect" button to the new message pane toolbar, and the button is disabled on the main toolbar if you open a message in a separate window. You need to either redirect from the main window with the message selected or right-click and choose "Redirect". Any why hasn't the latest version been posted here?

RefControl

Control FROM, not TO Rated 4 out of 5 stars

As others have mentioned, this would be much more useful if it controlled the referer FROM sites (e.g. indexing sites), not just TO sites. I use this on Google Images to stop sites from blocking direct image links, but I have to use the " (3rd Party)" option, which breaks functionality on a LOT of other sites. When something doesn't work on a site, it's often (but not always obvious) a referer problem. I've already had to add 20+ exceptions because of this. It would be great if I could have just ONE entry for images.google.com and leave everything else set to "Normal".

Chrome View

Illiterate Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The incorrect/inconsistent capitalization in the context menu item label is annoying. It should be "View This Page in Chrome".
