In a little more detail...
Happy Palemoon user. Got off the FF-go-round™ at Australis FF29. No sale thanks, but lets keep in touch.
* I think I'm pretty competent at laying out my own browser UI, thanks.
*And I have zero interest in either running Chrome, or a FF-based UI clone, or, for that matter shilling out my data & privacy to cloud vendors of any stripe.
Data-sharing & sync'ing is a process _I_ should be able to configure through any private media _I_ chose (dropbox, googledrive, onedrive, USB-key, email or even pony-express). Like with the UI, I shouldn't be shoe-horned by the devs into trusting and using *their* choice.

Works, but doesn't support locating in the restored AddonBar (via CheckCapability), under FF35.x. I'm not ready to give up 2.5" of key real estate in my upper toolbar rows, on a status item I want to look at a few times a day. The bottom 'statusbar' is where I want it, but the app fails to see the Addonbar as equivalent to it's 'StatusBar' setting.
Also, highly dependent on flash, Flashblock needs whitelisting, or you'll have it's happy little circle-F icons on AniWeather's popups.

CTR isn't a perfect restoration of FF28's interface options, but it's _essential_ for the bulk of ff users that have been happy with the existing UI and customizability of Firefox - since ff2.0 for me - and have no interest in "another Chrome" or "Win8-tablet-tool". I was floored today to see the UI damage done with the fx29 "upgrade".
Right now CTR is the only thing keeping me from switching completely over to Palemoon (which I'll be evaluating as well). It's pretty insulting when the FF devs decide _for you_ that you have no purpose in having a browser-width status bar on which to keep your plugins.
Blocks Captchas (ReCaptcha) Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Works fine, except for me, it blocks 'Re-Captcha' captcha images from appearing on some of the sites I frequent. Took some time turning off addons 1-by-1 to isolate Google Disconnect as the issue. Checked on the background for Re-Captcha; et voila, "...acquired by Google in September 2009". Now it makes sense! :D
Works great for FF22.0. But not in Comodo IceDragon Rated 4 out of 5 stars
v2.0.1 works just great as a keepass adjunct under Firefox 22.0.As a side-note though, although Comodo IceDragon 184.108.40.206 is firefox-based, it looks like this addon can't get access to IceDragon's toolbar. As web tracking, google/facebook etc profiling and invasiveness have grown over time, I've started using other browsers to provide 'logged-in' access, while remaining _logged-out_ in my primary browser. IceDragon makes a good option, because - other than this specific addon - it's pretty much fully compatible with your regular Firefox addons, bookmarks and other profile components, while maintaining a 100% separate profile & cookies. Thanks!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (220.127.116.11-signed.1-signed).
Sigh adware, alternatives? Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Rolling back to the link below to the 401 revision gets rid of the adware. Unfortunately I don't see any provision in FF to disable update checking on individual addons.
