Add-ons I've created
A modified Dorando's tool to rebind keys in Mozilla apps. It is designed to be a drop-in replacement, and will keep your old settings. (See details for upgrade instructions.)
No More Install Delay No Restart
UPDATE: XPI delay has been removed in Firefox 40!
Disable the install delay in Firefox. New 2.0 version now includes GreaseMonkey scripts!
Unlike similar addons, this works on Firefox 4 and beyond.
Good, but one issue Rated 4 out of 5 stars
The only thing that would make it better is, if it's not on a link, open the current page in Chrome instead. Right now it tries to get the most recently selected text, which never works right.
But, otherwise, it does exactly what it says it will do. But I had to knock off the star for sending a non-URL to Chromium.
Slow in e10s Rated 4 out of 5 stars
When using multiprocess Firefox (where the alternative Bookmark Replacer doesn't work), it is rather slow and locks up the browser. Only one star off since e10s isn't live yet.
I tried to bring over the Chrome version using WebExtensions, but I had no success--just like I haven't with any others. The Chrome version seems to handle the multi-process nature of Chrome just fine.
Maybe you would have better luck, and thus have an addon that works here.
Just realized you can review themes Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I've been using this one for a long time. The Linux theme is just completely colorless. And a nice solid color makes things better.
Don't really consider it all that bright, but that's fine by me. It looks great.
Another great theme by MaDonna Rated 5 out of 5 stars
You do the best solid themes
Firefox's Hoverzoom Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Nice Firefox answer to Chrome's Hoverzoom.
I wish there was a way to make it not work on CSS sprites. What I mean is, if the image is cropped, don't show the image. Only do it with scaled images.
Or at least a way to limit it to links, and not images.
For now, I have to just disable it on any site that uses CSS sprites.
Edit: I realize it is hard to tell if an image is a sprite or not. But even just an option to disable uncropping altogether would be nice. I do not use that feature. Any site I know of that crops images (Facebook and Reddit) provides a way to uncrop the image without opening a new page.
Also, couldn't you add that sieve by default, so at least Google's logo wasn't affected?
Works great, but have a couple nitpicks Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I like how this works. It's quite a nice experience. I can continue with the page I'm on, while having the video play in the top right.
There are a couple tiny little things that would make it better (and get that fifth star):
An option to include a close (X) button. Maybe on the top left.
An option to disable the animation when starting minimized. It's a bit distracting.
Also, a suggestion: add an option to get a lighter/brighter version of the backlight color instead of a random one. Oh, and maybe an option to choose how far out it goes.
Still works Rated 5 out of 5 stars
It may say it's incompatible, but it still works fine. If necessary, download the checkCompatibility addon.
Shutdown() error Rated 5 out of 5 stars
The addon appears to not define a shutdown method, causing an error in the console when the browser is closed.
Breaks NoSquint and Restart Rated 2 out of 5 stars
Restored tabs seem to somehow not register as the same tabs to NoSquint.
And restarting Firefox after using the addon replaces all but the first tab with "New Tab." I assume the problems are related.
OneTab is a similar addon that does not have these problems
Does what it says, but want tiny bit more Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I would like two things: a keyboard shortcut to pull it up (possibly configurable), and a right click option on tabs that would close any tabs from the same domain.
Oh, and if you could allow regex in the box, that would be AMAZING. You could identify regex by the use of //.
EDIT: I see you've said you plan on adding the right click tab option. Thanks. (right clicking in the content area means I have to actually load the tab, which I don't want.)
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Still works on Firefox 40, even if it claims to be incompatible. If you have trouble, be sure to install the checkCompatibility addon.
Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Deliberately removing the ability to use maxtabs and the timer at the same time is not acceptable. It worked back in 0.7.1. It's been broken since 0.7.2, yet you've made multiple updates since then, apparently greying out the options rather than fixing them.
You can't have updates that break features. Normally I'd give you time to fix it, but the way you are talking, it seems you aren't going to. If you do fix it, my review will change. And, like I said, there have been 5 updates since it broke.
Until then, I'm using 0.7.1, which would have gotten 5 stars.
Hacked version Rated 3 out of 5 stars
In case the reviews get deleted again, I uploaded this here at AMO. Just search for Flashblock hack 34.
(Direct links seem to require review.)
Patching alternative Rated 3 out of 5 stars
In the bug report, we've found that the patch doesn't work on every website. But there are alternatives.
1. Go to Addon &gt; Plugins and set Flash to "Ask to Activate"
2. Download the "Click to Play per element" addon.
3. If you want, you can also download "Click to play manger" to directly mess with your whitelist, and "Hide Plugin Notifications" to avoid the notice you get when Flash is blocked.
It works just like Flashblock, except you click the icon in the address bar to enable Flash for a web page.
Unfortunately, it doesn't work for HTML5 videos. The best plugin I've found for that is "Videos without Flash." It has an option to takeover all HTML5 videos, which means you'll have to click to activate. Unfortunately, it has no whitelist.
If you must have the original, though, search for Flashblock hack 34. I can't link it directly.
Feature requests Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Seems to work well. The missing star is fpr two missing features. First off, you need a button (disabled by default). People who aren't developers are likely to remove Developer Options from their Firefox menu. A separate button is a nice fallback.
Second, you need to fix the table so that the columns can be resized.
Well designed Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I got this only to disable the Blip.tv flash player, as it maxes out my CPU for some reason, when no other video site does. I really like that I had the option to disable it everywhere else.
As for people complaining about YouTube, I have a suggestion. Just turn on the HTML5 player from YouTube, and shut it off in the addon.
Designer: Make your addon do that, as well, so it won't mess up the comments. If you have to switch to HTML5 for embeds, that's fine, but just use the built in YouTube option for videos on the main YouTube site.
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I'm giving this 5 stars because it was good while it was useful. But now it actually breaks the password manager in Firefox 31 or higher. You need to make the addon incompatible with Firefox 31.This user has a previous review of this add-on.
Rated 3 out of 5 stars
This addon would be perfect if it played well with Australis. It's both missing an icon and is too large to work properly in the new Firefox Menu. If you could fix it to have a new icon and restrict its size to the same as the other Australis buttons, I would love to use this addon.
Unfortunately, the fact that I can't use it makes me drop two stars, even though I support the idea. Fix this, and I will change it to five stars.
Still mostly works on Firefox 26 Rated 5 out of 5 stars
You can't use the "clear all" feature, but everything else still works fine, if you disable compatibility checking (using the addon "Disable Add-on Compatibility Checks")
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Does what it's supposed to do. "
(AFAIK, Gmail doesn't need this addon.)
