After the update do 2.0, firefox uses 30% cpu Rated 2 out of 5 stars

After the update i started to see in the Process Explorer the Firefox using 30% of CPU resources.

Then if i removed the icon from the status bar, Firefox will drop do 0%.

This is all when Firefox is idle.

Please correct this.

Nice try but... unstick the icon please! Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Pretty please, as others have already said, make that icon's position/visibility configurable. It's very irritating. IMO, the best would be to make it appear inside the normal status bar (or "Status-4-evar" addon), so one may place it wherever he wants with the "Organize Status Bar" addon, or even disable it.

Also, why a "submit all" button only? What if one wishes to submit only a few addons status? I suggest adding a fourth state (V, X, ? and "none", where "none" could be achieved by clicking on an already selected icon -V, X, ?- to deselect it without selecting anything else). Then the "submit all" button could report only addons which have something selected. There could also be a header in the top of the window (V, X, ? - none) in order to set the clicked item to all addons.

why making an irremovable icon? Do you think we are stupid enough not to know how to use this addon?

v2.0 needs a redo Rated 1 out of 5 stars

As other posters have mentioned, v2.0 of this addon puts a non-removable icon in your browser status bar. At least if you have a third-party status bar addon installed; I use "Status-4-Evar" available on this site. It may do so even if you don't have such an addon.

You can "temporarily" get rid of it by opening Toolbars/Customize and dragging the icon to that panel. But on exiting and restart of Firefox, it automatically reappears again. There is no way to change this irritating conduct I've yet found.

This behavior is totally unlike what versions prior to 2.0 did. They did not automatically force an icon on you. No other addon I've tried (and that's been many) behaves this way.

Consequently, Addon Compatibility Reporter v2.0 is uninstalled here and I've recommended locally that all users who dislike this to do the same.

Hopefully future updates will remove this annoying problem.

Why I can't force enable incompatible addons? Without that this is an useless addon.

Thank you.

Never ceases to amaze me how people can work so hard to make something that worked just fine....work many times worse.

Ok I'll be the first, so just how do I remove that stupid puzzle looking piece in the lower right hand corner of my Add-On bar???

Have tried dragging and dropping it via the custom box of my tool bar options and it goes away till I close and open the browser again.

So now do I have to revert back to the old version and hack even this too so it doesn't keep reminding me to update?

New version terrible!!! - it work very slowly, I try to open add-on tab - and I cannot see it in ten minute.
Old version this add-on worked slow, but more faster (one minute).
I install 500 add-ons, with 100 turned on, another turned off.

This is a must-have addon, as for users, as for developers. In fact I believe this should be a built-in feature of the browser itself!

The only complaint I have, as developer I get quiet mixed reports with no explanation why addon doesn't work. If we could enforce leaving comment when addon being reported as "not working", it would really help developers.

How to install any old addon without this Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Here's a workaround for those who want any addon to be installed in FF versions later than x.xx
1-Download the addon xpi from any other browser.
2-Open archive inside any File unarchivers like 7zip,etc.
3-Locate the file install.rdf
4-rename it to install.txt
5-open it in notepad and find "em:maxVersion>x.x.*</em:maxVersion"
6-Replace x.x with 23.0,24.0,etc.
7-Save it
8-Rename it again to install.rdf
9-Close 7zip
10-Drag the xpi file to the firefox window
11-Voila! Installation dialog box is here :)
Hope this works.
Thanks,
Akshay

Anyone have link to GToolbar V7.1.20110512W ?? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

@DarkForce -- It works here in the lab :) after the latest upgrade 14.0.1 with NO adjustments.

@DannyR -- Great new for me there is a link, since I REALLY wanted to find a way to GET the install FILE for GToolbar. Unfortunately, I did a search for V7.1.20110512W and only got about 45 translations of your post!

If you, or anyone has a link to a download, I'd love to have it.
(When installing the Toolbar on any of the latest FF versions, Google won't even try to install or download it, so I can coax it into installing or downloading unless I first install an ancient version of FF. )

BE CAREFUL of any links that are posted here, since a posted link here would be a great way to infect someone's computer.

Compatability Buttons Missing Rated 1 out of 5 stars

As of FF 14.0.1, ACR is now entirely useless. The compatibility report buttons are missing entirely from the Addons List. Irony; can't even report ACR's own incompatibility.

Google Toolbar NO IF... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

@DaaBoss

I'm using Google Toolbar on 3 PCs now and had never to patch a file besides about:config.

My FF 13.0.1 even works with "extensions.checkCompatibility.13.0 = false" (no ".1" needed). OK, I prematurely added one with "...14.0=false" but that shouldn't be it, should it?

On one PC though I had to uninstall and reinstall the Google Toolbar (I'm using V7.1.20110512W and recommend using this one; you can "google" for it ;-).

Cheers,
Dany

Theme compatibility Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Agree with Aris (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/thunderbird/addon/add-on-compatibility-reporter/reviews/350056/) Themes' versions should also be overridden.

DaaBoss... Not Work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I followed your instructions (about:config/search for extensions.check/right-click, and say Boolean --- and then paste this string: extensions.checkCompatibility.13.0.1)

I restart FF but the extensions are exactly the same.

Please to do something else?

can easily be made working w. TB 13 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

ACR rocks, DanyR rocks! For the fix for TB13 look below.

1 * deduction because an IMPORTANT option is STILL MISSING: Compatibility button, right click, 'AddOn PARTIALLY works' !! This is important for e.g. MailTweak, Buttons! etc.

Please add! Thanks
