Restartless Restart

Not working in 44.0 Why? Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Wasn't this a FF built-in long ago?
Firefox developers have a long history of removing useful parts of the program, trying to suit ... who? What ever happened to the element properties menu item? Oh.

New Add-on Bar

Works fine so far -- but Rated 5 out of 5 stars

why did Mozilla have to break compatibility for the Addon Bar Restored? I'm one of many who will jump from that ship, a comfortable place after years of use, but I wonder why we have to either live in the dark or invest excess time to discover why the team chose to break a working item? FireFox is ugly now that they chose to break the Noia theme; item-Properties judged not important; password manager; menu editor; and the list of excellent widgets broken by FF/Moz but not replaced marches on.

Thanks to the author of this, er, timely addon

The Addon Bar (Restored)

FF 44 -- broke this addon -Why do they do that? Rated 2 out of 5 stars

FF 44 -- broke this addon -Why do they do that?
What is up with the constant need to ignore users, break working features and addons? Is it just the appreciation of the switching costs to go to another browser? The FF team must be composed of republicans....

Noia Fox

Firefox @ 41.0.1: Minor bug fix breaks Noia Compatibility Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I guess Mozilla developers would prefer that FireFox is ugly -- breaking compatibility of Noia-Fox has left this browser back in its ugly, ugly state. Good show -- usability has never been at the top of Mozilla's list, and appearance leads to greater usability: quod erat demonstrandum. Noia, which I have used in one incarnation or another for years takes the butt-ugly out of many facets of the
FF interface, from the ugly bookmark bar to the elevator bar, from the tabs to the program interface icons. Now they are all in their butt-ugly default FireFox state again, the world is a little bit less nice with every use of the browser. Very republican!

Not working in Thunderbird 31.8.0 [alas] Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This has always been a great addon, does what it says, low overhead, no complaints.

It was actually created to fill a gap that was created in Thunderbird's development: you used to be able to minimize the headers directly from the program, then that useful feature was removed from one release to the next. Why? Are M$ employees working on TB? Seriously, did a group have a meeting wherein the topic of removing usability and user-friendliness was discussed and forcing unwitting users to sacrifice screen real-estate because of a perceived need for 'code elegance' or 'compactness' took hold?

Meanwhile, thanks to the developer of this extension, jmozmoz, compacting the headers to a single relevant line was the job of simply clicking one button and the state was remembered well between program invocations or computer reboots, whether Linux or Windburps. Now, a program update, apparently a minor revision [?] has left this extension out in the rain (v. 2.10 TB) works no more in TB 31.8.0 [alas].

Compared to the unrest in the world, this is only a hiccup, or possibly a small hiccaburp, but would leave the world an even politer place by somehow being fixed.

I have missed this AddOn: tryed hacking it myself, but Rated 4 out of 5 stars

that can always lead to unk. consequences, hopefully the project is back on track! After using RP for more than a year, I just got used to blocking all the oddball requests embedded in webpages -- the amount of tracking going on is ridiculous! It's like online-stalking. We need to value privacy very highly. The laconic slide into apathy goes down a very [warning: cliche] slippery slope!

Thanks for giving the project new life.

Restartless Restart

Yay, it works. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

An other Restart addon was not working. I added this one and thought it was not working, then found that I was clicking the old one, which was still in the menu until a restart -- this one's fine new icon did the restart. All I ask of the code, and we got it!

Restart Firefox

Used to work Rated 2 out of 5 stars

But not working now, and that's a shame.

Time to find another addon to do this: should be a built-in feature of FF! I like to use a zillion tabs and several windows so restarting is not only necessary several times a day, but a bit of a pain. A restart feature, such as the button FF offers when you update a plugin should be trivial!!

This one does not work though.

Noia Fox

Noia Makes FF USABLE! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Without Noia Fox Firefox is SOOOO UGLY! that I can not stand to use it. Please update Noia. We don't need (I don't need) any advanced features -- just the main look and feel!!!

Thanks for your consideration. It's been a number of years or versions, so many that I can't directly how long. Started with this theme when I began to use FF, and it is so much a part of it that I've been able to forgive all of FF's faults, slowness, changes that break my patterns in daily use, etc.

Email Link button

FF 16.01 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

FF 16.00 to 16.01 -- This security update for FireFox removed the 'Send Link' context menu option because...they are idiots? I use the feature dozens of times daily. So I tried this addon. It installed, but that's all it did. It did not create an icon anywhere, not even in the customize list.

Correct that, it did apparently uninstall ok. That's not much of a feature.

Easy YouTube Video Downloader

Misleading -- Hidden Adware? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I clicked OK to install the version directly from Doing so installed the extension and opened a page telling me that the features advertised required adding other components downloaded not through mozilla, and mentioning it is 'ad supported, not adware' And that distinction is? They say that I would have an option to not install their unspecified ad component software, but none was given.

I would like to know what stuff it put on my computer and what remain after I uninstalled the extension from FF. It's odd that FF thinks it uninstalled this, ah, software, because I renamed the operative XPI file before running the removal and that file was not touched and FF no longer reports the installation: was the uninstall just a dummy? Are there other nefarious files lingering on my computer that were installed without my express permission, knowledge or consent??

I would say the whole thing is misleading and warn you to stay away. The newest version of DownloadHelper (4.9.10) does work even on Win7.64 If that's not enough, I'm looking at Mixya. No need for the strange stuff seen here....

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I could not get new settings to work until reading the article below by JeNaait UtSteed. One thing he left out is that when editing services, you can select the new line of the service, below 'Disabled' but you have to hit enter on the keyboard in order to set the choice.

I've upgraded my assessment because this is actually fully functional -- but the incomplete user interface left unable to operate the settings and feeling a bit like a newbie. (It's so far from obvious what you have to do to make a new setting and get it to work!)

Simple Search-For Extension

Just one Search Engine?? Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I want to find an extension / plugin that allows me to mouse over or highlight (text, image, graphic) and search a choice of engines: Google, Gmaps, Froogle, Amazon, eBay, IMDB, Urban Dictionary, GImages, etc. It would be sweet if I could just use the list of engines I've added to Firefox's search-bar-box as I can in Firefox with "Context Search" plugin!

Until then this is a rather limited application.

Folderpane Tools

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This small extension/addon doesn't do all that much, but what it does do (rearrange folders and set the default) is extremely important. I've been using Thunderbird for years, since converting from Eudora, and have not been able to change the order in which my accounts appear in the folder-pane, nor set the default. I've tried editing the userprefs.js and it does not take, or the changes appear random -- not sure why, it's pretty straightforward looking. This little bit of code fixed it first time, hoo-rah. I give it a high mark! /..

PS: I use Thunderbird 5.0 now, and this is the version I for which I installed and used FolderPane.
