My Reviews


Menu mất tiêu Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Menu trên thanh trạng thái không còn hiển thị trong Firefox 29 trở lên. Hơn nữa, các phím tắt không hoạt động trong Mac. Nếu cần bật/tắt Mudim hoặc đổi kiểu gõ, chỉ còn cách mò vào about:config và thay đổi các tùy chỉnh dưới “chimmudim”.

Ngoài ra, trong Firefox 42 trở lên, Mudim không còn hoạt động trong các trang Web (do chế độ e10s).

Muốn nhập tiếng Việt vào Firefox thì nên cài đặt phần mở rộng AVIM thay thế.


The status bar menu no longer shows up in Firefox 29 and above. Additionally, the keyboard shortcuts do not work on the Mac. The only way to turn Mudim on and off or change the input method is to manually change the preferences in about:config, under “chimmudim”.

Additionally, in Firefox 42 and above, Mudim no longer works in any webpage (due to e10s mode).

Anyone interested in Vietnamese typing in Firefox should install the AVIM extension instead.

Thanks for fixing the issue with the Compose window’s To: field. The extension works great!

Tabs On Bottom

Perfect, and not a moment too soon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works just the way I expect it to. Thanks to this extension, I can continue making full use of my (Mac OS X) title bar. Some pages have titles over three words long, after all!

I’ve relied on this extension for a long time. It works fine in the Firefox 4 betas, but the new link URL-on-hover feature isn’t supported. Thankfully, the Link Target Display extension [1] lets me keep Locationbar² around.[1] https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/55724/

Link Target Display

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I wanted to keep using Locationbar² in Firefox 4.0b7 (after disabling compatibility checking), but it doesn’t support the new link URL-on-hover feature, so I’m really glad to find this extension.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.6.1). 


Gorgeous Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Thanks for continuing Alex’s great work. I’ve been waiting for a Charamel update for years now. As with Charamel, the graphics in this theme are gorgeous, and I especially like the whole hat motif. I also appreciate the tiled Downloads dialog and the custom icons for popular extensions such as Adblock Plus.

The only complaint I can think of is that, at least on the Mac, some parts of the Preferences window have scrollbars where they shouldn’t.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.0_b2).

XPather highlights malformed XPath statements as you type them out – very helpful.

I like how this extension’s very simple. I don’t ever need to save the highlighting; for that, there are other extensions.

Vietnamese Portable

Broken Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This extension is completely broken in Mac OS X: it isn’t even possible to turn on input editing, because the status bar panel doesn’t show up and Alt+ keyboard shortcuts are used by the operating system. Vietnamese Portable also doesn’t have as many features as the other extensions here (AVIM and Mudim).
Phần mở rộng này không hoạt động một tí nào trong Mac OS X, đến độ mà không thể bật lên bộ gõ. Panel trên thanh trạng thái không hiển thị và các phím tắt Alt+ bị đụng với hệ điều hành. Vietnamese Portable cũng không có nhiều tính năng bằng các phần mở rộng khác ở đây (AVIM và Mudim).
