DownThemAll!

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

much ado about...
Shiny icons, beautiful boxes, fast to display, explosion of options... all that for what precisely ? download plain standard http files !
With no option - no ftp, no p2p, no direct download, no user/password protected files, no recursive download, no masks on other conditions than filetype like subpaths identifiers, size or so on...
Well, im disapointed to say the least.
Perhaps a polyvalent downloader like modern times ask us to become, should seek for something more integrated to other download technologies and needs? perhaps orbit downloader or flashget are EBE since they're not "extensions" but real software programming ?
Sorry, im disappointed. Good continuation, though...

Tempomail

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

i'm sorry to write a review because participating at making this extension more popular would probably one day make your mail gateway to explode!
i know there is probably other, but i'm totaly fond of your very simple and no blah blah approach
Thanks for this excellent tool and long life to your gateway!!

BarTab

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

an absolutely must-have extension when you often use more than 10 tabs. First because it allows you to reload firefox quickly, second because when surfing on youtube you save a lot of memory and can continue to browse without video freezes, or worse, total computer freeze.
and +1 for frvaddons : merge work (i know it requiers time and dedication) !! but all extensions developer should have that in mind for the sake of mozilla's future

Tree Style Tab

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is fantasticly useful extension when in my case you deal with tons of tabs on a daily basis
But some improvements should be made about:
1/ Rendering - more customization of the themes would be welcome, but most of all, an option that would render tabs with the minimum of hacks from the normal firefox rendering (and that to allow better compatibility with other tab extensions)
2/ Unifying - treestyletab with unified sidebar for a start (same developper), multipletabhandler (same developer also?), but also some other good extensions like BARTAB (load tabs on demand), tabberwocky (lock tab), and tabgroupsmanager (for hibernate and save sessions functions essentially).
There are lot more to say about treestylebar, and i'll come with specific reports directly on the dev site.

HighlightAll

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

you have to tweak in the options to change its default behavior because "selection stops at punction when double-click" is a pain in the ass to select links.
I use it mainly to fill the search box and for highlighting source code.
Overal Good work, but could be improved :
1/ Auto hilight search terms for any search engine
2/ Multi highlight with SHIFT+F8 & Highlight surligner
3/ Auto highlight whats in search box
4/ Auto highlight list of terms (another box, or properties of bookmarks)
5/ Remember what to highlight for each web page

Download Statusbar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

if one extension have to be implemented in next edition of firefox, for sure it would be this one. This is a must have for everyone, so fast and steady. And as much for beginners as much as crazy leechers, this is fairly more simple that the stupid integrated download manager.

Unified Sidebar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

grandiose! absolutely a must have when you use treestyletab.
very simple, no option, but you can adjust the vertical position of normal sidebar (bookmarks/history/...) and it remembers it !
another excellent thing : it follows the auto-hide behavior of treestyletab, even in tweaky configurations like mine - 100px permanent, expand to 300px on a 2s mouseover.
Just a little detail : would be neat if the 2s mouseover could be detected also when staying on normal sidebar

2 Pane Bookmarks

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

several bugs and lack of ergonomy
1) always show arrows, even for folders with nosubfolders
2) do not show any placement bar when moving bookmark order
3) do not show sub-directories as folders in the bottom pane, in what manner its not possible to rearrange subfolders with other items like separators and links
4) strange behavior of expand&collapse : shift towards top when collapsing a folder at the end of the list, and do not shift towards top when expanding a folder, to see most of its content

Anyway, good idea, but.. could do better in term of implementation.

DOM Inspector

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a hell of a software for any html developper, absolutely useful, and I don't care the little bugs or improvements that could be made
