My Reviews

Bookmarks Tab

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Sorry for contacting you this way, but there are no other contact/support details on AMO.

This add-on refuses to work with TabUtilities and Classic Theme Restorer.

Steps to reproduce
- install Classic Theme Restorer (latest stable)
- open a second window
- click on new tab tab/button
- no new tab opens
- errors are shown in error console

The issue occurs, because this add-on has a problem with the way CTR changes Fx tab width by overriding documents css rules. There is no connection between overriding documents css rules for tab width and adding bookmark to a new tab imo.

I believe the same problem occurs with TabUtilities, but I haven't debugged it.

At least for Classic Theme Restorer I can add a workaround, but could you please also check why your add-on has a problem with TUs and CTRs way to modify css rules?

New Tab Plus

I think there are a lot people -including me-, that would prefer to see the main add-on page and its name in English.

Besides that, great add-on. Keep up your good work.

Add-on Compatibility Reporter

Was good, but isn't anymore Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This extension was good some time ago but now it causes more harm than we get benefits of it.
People are allowed to report something like “Problem” or “This add-on no longer works”. So what could somebody (dev, Mozdev, reviewer) gain from such an information?

Reports appearing now inside add-on settings for developers, but most reports miss any helpful information e.g. what other extensions are installed or why the user is still using an old add-on release or what problem the user actually has and why he doesn’t go to the support forum or why he/she is not writing an email?
People can post empty “problem” reports, why? What can an add-on developer do, about a “non-existing” problem without a bug report?

Very often problems are created by Firefox updates or bad/old extensions. In such cases bug reports are just invalid.

Why this add-on doesn’t override the maxVer for themes? This would be the most important feature, because normal add-ons are compatible by default now anyway!

Why this add-on provides the ability to report, that my theme doesn’t work with the latest nightly anymore? I know it works, but because there was no way to update “maxVer” for a multipacked theme+extension combination, it is shown as “non-compatible”, although it is wrong. I included compatibility to the last (back then latest) nightly and cannot provide a fully reviewed new release the same minute a new nightly version gets available. Example: the theme is compatible up to 14.0a1. The day FF15.0a1 enters nightly channel and FF14.0a2 Aurora channel a theme becomes not compatible to them anymore until it gets an update or the “maxVer” gets an override.

Sorry to be rude, but without new functions the “Add-on Compatibility Reporter” extension is useless nowadays and three stars are more than fair. It gets 5 again, after new and needed features will be added.

Feature wishes for next updates:

- override themes “maxVer”
- include information about installed extensions inside reports
- force users to write a bug report

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1).

Great, I was looking for such functions!

IE6 Toolbar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works fine on FF9 and Win7.

Little suggestion: Change your internal extension name to something more unique like "ie6toolbar" instead of using the name "it".

NoGlass

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Superb! Thats how TB5+ has to look like.

Noia Fox

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

@JCube:

Your reported bug regarding Acrobat pdf view with Noia themes (on AeroGlass) will be fixed on next release of Noia 4 (v1.5.2) and I believe on Noia Fox (v1.3.8) too.

Please use support sites for reporting bugs next time.

ColorfulTabs

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Please make the tab font color/shadow customizable or at least remove the !important tag, so other extensions can set it!

Here is a modded version. You can set tab font color/shadow yourself with other extensions.
