TabGroups Menu

Nearly Perfect Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great add-on!

Just a slight problem, though. I'm using Pale Moon (Firefox v24 ESR fork) with the Panorama add-on (Panorama is removed from Pale Moon by default), and everything works except for "Show Tabs Menu" and "Use active group name in tabs menu", as disabling these don't have any effect.

I want to make the "Tab Groups (149/8)" menu to be the only one to appear in the menu bar, removing the "Main (active group name)" menu, but disabling the second option doesn't remove the active group name from the menu item, and disabling the first doesn't make the "active group" menu item to disappear as I'd like it to.

Works perfectly on Pale Moon! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works perfectly on Pale Moon v24.5.0, after ditching Firefox v29.

Toggle Find Bar

Great but with a minor bug Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This add-on is really great, makes you wonder why it's not in Firefox by default.


It works wonderfully with the exception of one problem, doesn't seem to work when on a private browsing window.

TabRenamizer

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Works on Firefox v27 but it's bugged - the most noticeable bug is when starting Firefox's session, tabs display their link on their title and not their name.

S3 Download Statusbar

Excellent, but some improvements needed Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you for giving a second life to Download Statusbar, the v2.1 improvements concerning the simplistic Firefox Downloads page replacement are specially useful, but there are a couple things that could be improved:

- Clicking "Clear" on the Download Statusbar should also clear the downloads in the Firefox Downloads Library, not only the downloads listed in the Download Statusbar;
- Hide/Remove the "Move Downbar to top/bottom" button from the bar, like you did with the "Hide Downbar" button as it was suggested before;
- An option to select where the bar appears by default, if in the bottom or if in the top;
- A "Clear All Downloads" in the Downloads Library page, like Firefox has by default;
- "Pause All", "Resume All" and "Cancel All in Progress" buttons in the Downloads Library page should be greyed out and not clicklable, like they are now as of v2.1, unless there are downloads in progress or paused downloads depending on the situation.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.01). 

Toggle Find Bar

Really useful! What about Thunderbird? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Been using it since discovering this add-on and now I'm missing its practicality in Thunderbird when viewing messages.

Any chance to also provide it for Thunderbird?

Thank you!

Before Tabs Toolbar

Amazing! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Just like what I wanted, to style and place the Thunderbird app menu button the same way as Firefox's.

Sad that Mozilla abandoned active development of the TB features, or else sooner or later this would be default in a new TB version.

Thank you!

Ignore Aero

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Just by installing this theme, I can get TB11 menu bar back to the top maintaining the mail bar inside the tabs.

Still, I would prefer to keep the Aero style buttons instead of going back to TB3 style buttons.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.1.0). 

Rise of the Tools

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Thanks for your add-on.
It really puts the menu bar back to the top above the tabs where it should really be - combining with your IgnoreAero theme works fine.

It's sad that this happens on Vista and 7 because on other systems like Linux and WinXP the menu bar continues on top, thus requiring this add-on on Aero OSes.

I'm giving this add-on 3 stars because despite wanting the menu bar above the tabs, I still want the mail bar to be INSIDE the tabs.

To do so, I'll have to use the userChrome.css tweak posted here

https://getsatisfaction.com/mozilla_messaging/topics/anyway_to_put_tabs_under_the_main_menu_bar_in_new_version

combined with your IgnoreAero theme.

Can you consider doing an alternate add-on for those of us that want the menu bar above tabs, but the mail bar inside the tabs?

CacheViewer

CacheViewer for FF updated versions Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Click "Add to Firefox", right mouse click -> "Save Link As..." in "Install Anyway" when it appears.

Extract to a empty folder, edit "install.rfd" in notepad and change the max version to " * " only, making it look like "<em:maxVersion>*</em:maxVersion>".

Compress to file in ZIP format, change the .zip extension to .xpi and drag the file into/open it with FF.

This way the extension won't be disabled every time you update your FF version, but you have to keep an eye out to see if it continues to work from version to version.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6.3).

AutoCopy

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Please update AutoCopy to work with the latest Thunderbird releases.

Continues to work great in Firefox and would love to have it for TB too!

Tabs Always In Titlebar

WinXP incompatibilities Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This add-on may work well on Aero themes, but not on WinXP themes (official and modified), at least for me.

Here's what happens: http://img37.imageshack.us/img37/6546/28000947.jpg
The tab bar is literally put on top of the titlebar, not considering its background.

Instead, the background should be like this http://img835.imageshack.us/img835/6885/53757622.jpg , just like when you have FF maximized and the tab bar is on the titlebar with that glass effect by default.

(NOTE: This is the WinXP theme titlebar background/color without any effect http://img193.imageshack.us/img193/6973/84513293.jpg )

I suppose that this is not a problem on Aero because the titlebar and the tab bar have the same background, the Aero glass effect, but on WinXP this doesn't happen, the titlebar has a color (background) defined by the OS theme and the tab bar (when not in the titlebar) has a color defined by Firefox's theme.

I found the same bug to happen with a Stylish style/script that puts the bookmarks toolbar on top http://img560.imageshack.us/img560/1002/89304710.jpg , but then there's another Stylish script that enhances the last one and fixes that bug (although not adding the glass effect that Firefox adds by default to the tab bar/titlebar combination) http://img844.imageshack.us/img844/940/92489031.jpg .

Here are the Stylish styles/scripts, so you may want to look at their code (specially at the 2nd's that partially fixes the bug) for clues:
http://userstyles.org/styles/45565/firefox-4-bookmarks-toolbar-above-tabs
http://userstyles.org/styles/46274/firefox-4-bookmarks-toolbar-above-tabs-enhanced

Nonetheless, it's a good extension to save more vertical space when working with the browser's window non-maximized, and should be a default Firefox feature/option.
