My Reviews

Blank Your Monitor + Easy Reading

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Many thanks for updating this great addon!
I have noticed a small change: while restarting the browser, the plugin goes from on to off. Is this intentional?
I still can't see some small images -a thing of CSS, I guess-, like the rating stars in this page.
I can live with it.
Is it possible to know exactly what changes have been introduced in this version?
Anyway, great job!

Beyond Australis

Thanks for your quick response. But... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

With all due respect, I think that yes, that style makes sense, if the user dont want to install an (one more plus) addon to recover an essential functionality such as tabs on bottom (it's just a matter of productivity, nothing else).
@"Besides, it's not possible to show the toolbars above the tabs because they would have to pop out of the window."
Well, before installing your addon I had the navigation and the bookmarks toolbars perfectly visible above the tabs bar, and perfectly IN the browser's window.
Nevermind, it was just a suggestion.

Beyond Australis

Almost perfect Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Some of my configuration (very common on the other hand):
1.- To put tabs on bottom (just above the browser window), I've added this line:
'#TabsToolbar {
-moz-box-ordinal-group: 10000 !important;
}
inside the userChrome.css file.
2.- TabMixPlus extension installed.
3.- ColorfulTabs extension installed.
4.- Title bar visible.
Probably you include yet these odds in your testing sessions.
The problem: toolbars do hide when hovering over any tab.
Consequent problem: cannot view tooltip text relative to any tab (not enough time to display and view it, and yes, I've reduced response time to the minimum), nor cannot interact with that tab (i.e. right-click mouse context menu).
The question: can you fix this? I suggest the concealment can be made, not hovering the tabs, but ANYTHING OVER the tabs.
I think this can improve the responsiveness of the addon for the people that wants tabs on bottom (thanks for nothing, Mozilla developpers...!)
...Sorry for my poor english...
¡And many thanks for this great addon!

Tab Mix Plus

Please repair 'last selected tab' feature Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is essential for the fluency of the browser:

When I close the actual tab sometimes it doesnt go to the last selected tab. Maybe it happens more with https pages or pages with forms (the closed tabs). Maybe it happens with blocked tabs (the previously selected tab). I dont know exactly...

It is very, very annoying to me.

Can you fix it?
Anyway, excellent add-on!

HostAdmin

Issue with Super Start addon (or not) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Sorry for my bad english.
The user FooMagoo report an issue with Firefox opening a new tab and not loading the homepage when it starts. I have a possibly related problem: The popular addon Super Start (a speed dial functionality in a new tab) dont work when HostAdmin is active. Well, maybe is not your fault... 2 of the addresses managed by HostAdmin are placed in the Super Start tab.
Anyway, great addon!

Thanks for your reply!
I'll be up-to-date...

Link Location Bar

Very useful. Would be superb! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Would be superb with an option to align the hovered link-address to the left (the beginning of the address bar).
And another option to completely replace the current url with the entire hovered link-address, I mean complete, non truncated.
In fact, IMHO, this last should be the default, it makes more sense, is more professional and gives more information (like the extension of a page or file, if not too long)

Note:
Strangely, until yesterday the hovered address displayed to the left side of the address bar. Now, suddenly to the right (I see this is the default).

Anyway, absolutely useful and recommended add-on!

SelectionSK

Muy interesante extensión. Pero... Problemas con Google Translate Rated 4 out of 5 stars

La encuentro verdaderamente interesante. Me ha permitido suprimir dos extensiones (TranslateThis! y Copy Plain Text 2).
Pero ¡no funciona la traducción de Google! Dice sólo 'Diccionario'.
Tengo que usar la de Bing, que a veces es algo más inexacta. (En realidad tanto los servicios de traducción de Google como los de Microsoft/Bing son todavía muy imperfectos).
Según el autor es culpa de Google, quien contínuamente cambia su algoritmo o lo que sea.

Periódicamente hay usuarios que se quejan del fallo.

Entiendo el problema, pero quizá entonces el autor debería plantearse abandonar esta funcionalidad, si es que va a seguir fallando tan a menudo, y aunque no sea su culpa.

Si Google Translate sigue fallando, lamentablemente desinstalaré esta extensión y regresaré a las dos mencionadas más arriba. Una lástima.
