Makes Firefox crash now Rated 2 out of 5 stars

After installing oikoluku 2.0rc2, Firefox 7.0 on Windows XP and Linux crashed on Gmail and other pages with forms.

However, after installing 2.0, the crashes don't seem to happen on Linux but still happen on Windows XP.

Mozilla aikoo julkaista uuden version joka kuudes viikko. Käytännössä tämä tarkoittaa jäähyväisiä suomen kielen oikoluvulle Firefox:ssa, jos vastaava meno jatkuu. Pisteet ropisee...

Varsinainen PITA suomalaisille Firefox-käyttäjille. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Kun Firefox päivittyy on jotenkin vielä OK, että jotkut erikoisemmat lisäosat lakkaavat toimimasta, mutta ei todellakaan ole OK, että niinkin tärkeä ominaisuus kuin oikoluku lakkaa toimimasta pitkäksi aikaa.

Itselläni on 24 lisäosaa asennettuna, joista vain kolme ei ole yhteensopiva Firefox 5:n kanssa. Suomenkielen oikoluku on yksi niistä.

Miksi Firefox 5 julkaistiin näin äkkiä Firefox 4:n jälkeen melko pienillä muutoksilla? Yrittääkö Mozilla saada IE:n kiinni versionumeroinnissa? Jos näin on niin suomenkielisen oikoluvun voi käytännössä unohtaa noin viiden Firefox version ajaksi, jos mielii käyttää uusinta Firefoxia...

Neljä tähteä mutta vain periaatteesta, koska on todella hyvä että Firefoxissa ylipäätään on mahdollisuus suomenkielen oikolukuun.

Compact Menu 2

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very useful to save screen space especially since AFAIK, this is the only one of it's kind that works on Thunderbird.

Just a small "problem": on TB3 the button is wider than on TB2. I suppose this is because by default, it should have the label beside it just like all the other buttons.

Purge!

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Does not work on TB3.1.

It is already about a year since I e-mailed the developer about this issue and he just claimed that it works fine for him.... (?!) So don't expect this extension working anytime soon.

@joeltx: The "Compact" button doesn't seem to anything here. Would make sense that Thunderbird had this functionality built-in already though.... and it should be right there in the toolbar _by default_.

2 stars instead of 1 just because I remember this working so well in TB2.

Stylish

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This is the kind of an addon you'd love to give 5 stars for. However, then you realize that Thunderbird 3.1 is _still_ unsupported... and then you remember the built-in editor which is _still_ ridiculously rudimentary... and no option to use an external editor that the world has in abundance...

FlashVideoReplacer

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I'm also using the Quicktime Alternative plugin. Doesn't work. Will not install the official player.

It seems to use the WMP (v11, WinXP) plugin. The video plays but doesn't have any controls.

Would give only one star because of the problems, but as a very good attempt to reduce the need for flash I'll give it 4 stars.

Compact Menu 2

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great addon, but needs updating for Tb3! Especially as it wastes more screen real estate than Tb2...

Reuse Home Page

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I only now found this extension. Would install it in a second if it only worked with Fx 3.5.

Should be the default behavior especially for blank tabs!

Link Status

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great, but it doesn't work very well with the AutoHideStatusbar extension when you don't have the "show when hovered over a link option" enabled. I don't, because I found it too distracting.

I also use Fission. But for the same reason as above, I don't use the option to show the destination link in the locationbar. Instead, I use a (userChromeJS) script to show the link in a tooltip. This is the least distracting way IMHO.

So I have a suggestion that would make this an almost perfect companion for both of these extensions: Provide an option to show the link status and/or the link in a tooltip (when hovered over a link).

This way it would work with (and complement) both of these add-ons.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2). 

Status Buttons

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

-4: Why is this flagged to work with 3.5 if it's not true?

+1: Based on the description I'd be very interested though.

Title in Address

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Please update for Fx 3.5. Works fine though if you ignore version check.

I'd also like it to show the page title at all times except when the addressbar is focused. This way it would become the perfect companion for the Hide Caption extension(s):

https://addons.mozilla.org/fi/firefox/search?q=hide+caption&cat=all

I mean, who needs to see an address like the one above all the time anyway?

2 Pane Bookmarks

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Quite good extension but needs some tweaking:

- Remove the useless/confusing plus-sign from folders that don't have any sub-folders.

- Remove the useless Delete button from the bottom. Would save some space too. (option?)

- Only optionally show the folder title above the lower pane

One of the great things is the option to open the bookmarks in new tabs by default. Options to override blank tabs and home page would make it even more useful.

autoHideStatusbar

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

After installing Fission, the statusbar has become only a container for the icons from the other extensions.

So basically I could manage with a simple button that hides/unhides the statusbar (I don't like to have extra toolbar buttons though).

So, what I'd really like to see in a more complex extension is:

1. Show the statusbar if an extension asks attention, so the user can respond. Hide it again after a short time.

2. Instead of trying to hit "some magical spot" to unhide, I'd actually prefer an on/off toggle button. BUT instead of a normal toolbar button (which is pretty much an overkill for this kind of functionality), the button could be always visible in the right corner and under the scrollbar (so not a standard statusbar icon). Not sure if this would be possible though.

Tabs Open Relative

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Doesn't work with the Right Links extension which is pretty much essential for me.

Right Links:

Tab Scope

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I like the fact that the preview is actually a miniature version of the web page and that you can change between the two preview sizes.

Here is some suggestions I'd like to see in a future version:

- it could be useful to be able to grab the web page and move it inside the preview window.

- the navigation buttons could be optional - just choose the buttons you need.

- it would also be _much_ nicer if it used the icons from the current theme instead of the hardcoded icons from the default theme.

- a hover effect for the icons like other firefox buttons and the cursor could also change to indicate when it's over a link.

I also have a problem with the page scrolling which doesn't seem to work with my laptop's touchpad.

FishEyeTabs

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Would be much better if it would zoom *only* when the tab labels don't fit to the tabs and only the amount required to see the label.

At the moment it often zooms "just for the fun of it" which is quite annoying.

MinimizeToTray revived

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Nice addon. Unfortunately it doesn't work in Thunderbird 2 which IMO would need this even more than Firefox.

I'd switch to Tb3 beta if my other extensions would work with it including the dictionary for my native language...

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5). 

Compact Menu 2

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is great but what's the point of adding an option to display the *empty* menubar (into the View/Toolbars menu)?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.3.0a5). 

Hide Caption

Suggestion for usability Rated 3 out of 5 stars

IMHO it would be much more intuitive if there was a button to drag the window from. It could be placed left to the minimize button, and greyed out when the window is maximized.

The fact that you need illustrated pictures to teach people how to use it proves my point.

Dont' get me wrong. This is a great addon but can't give it more than three stars because of the above and the fact that it doesn't work with TabMixPlus (as already noted by others).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.3).
