Clean, simple and unobtrusive, a good replacement for All-in-One Sidebar Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

While AiOS is still the go-to extension for adding a sidebar to Firefox, it isn't without its flaws, which is more because of changes in Firefox itself. For instance, personas don't work fully in AiOS's grippie without hacking the browser and turning the entire chrome transparent.

Omnisidebar doesn't have any of those flaws: while there is still a grippie you can click to bring the sidebar into view, it isn't visible at all times like in AiOS (or SeaMonkey, for that matter). Because there isn't a visible grippie, personas still work just fine (since they are disabled in private windows, this is important).

In addition, this extension is updated frequently, while the creator of AiOS is having trouble updating the extension nowadays.

(Also, I noticed that Omnisidebar's settings are being synced between computers, which is also a huge plus.)

So, much like the author's other extension Beyond Australis provides the features Omnibar does (combined URL and search bar, which I still don't understand why it isn't already built into Firefox), Omnisidebar provides many of the features AiOS does.

Very Nice! Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

Great addon, actually works with 48.02a of developer version, and has exactly what I need.
Bookmarks, History, Addons, even Page Info is accessible in this handy sidebar.

Compared to AIOS, the page info is actually in the sidebar and addons are actually fitted to the sidebar.

My only recommendation is maybe add an option for icons to switch between bookmarks, history, addon, etc. The dropdown menu only adds an unnecessary click.

I'm glad you like the add-on. :)

You can use icons like you want. As is explained in the description, you just need to enter customize mode in Firefox, and drag whatever buttons you want into the sidebar toolbar. You can see this in most of the screenshots.

Great tool, Should of been a default feature along time ago. Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

It works flawlessly, I mainly use it to hop through YouTube bookmark/ history.

Clean interface. User friendly buttons. Does what is supposed to. Would be nice if a little drop down menu explained what each of the options do when hovering over them with a mouse cursor. This is a great add-on for people who wish to be able to view their bookmarks/history/downloads/extensions&add-on/page-info/Error Console? In a Sidebar instead of opening a new window. Finally can watch You Tube or browse through history while watching Hulu's advertising.

Problem with huge history. Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

edit: the history problem is caused by firefox! NOT by this addon !!!

Esta valoración es de una versión anterior del complemento (1.6.11). 

I have no idea of what you mean. OSB uses the built-in history sidebar. If you keep having problems please send me an e-mail or open an issue in the support thread about this.

Fits right in with my way of using Firefox Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

I don't have any quality complains, the sidebar does what it says on the box it's doing. Bugs introduced with a new release gets fixed within a few days.

The functionality this add-on provides enhances my work-flow when use Firefox and makes many tasks a lot easier.

This sidebar and Beyond Australis are the only two visual add-ons I really use. The sidebar always works, provides needed info, then gets out of the way when you don't need it. It integrates so well with Firefox that I forget it is an add-on. Thanks for this.

Very nice addon Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

Very nice sidebar for FF does what i need it to do.

I've just moved to 64bit Waterfox and it is the only addon that does not work can you see if you can get it to work in Waterfox

thanks

Esta valoración es de una versión anterior del complemento (1.6.8.0.1-let-fixed). 

I have not investigated this, but it may be because the latest version of Waterfox (40.1.0) is based on a version of Firefox code not supported by the latest version of the add-on.

I would suggest for now you try OSB version 1.6.4, and when Waterfox updates to 43 (should happen in the next few days apparently) you'll be able to update OSB to the latest version as well. If you still have problems then, please e-mail me or open an issue in the support page about it.

An essential plugin. Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

Makes you wonder why this isn't the default UI in Firefox; Opera was the pioneer there.

I've been an All-In-One-Toolbar user for years, and yours just made me switch; should be Featured as well. The toolbar doesn't seem to work in Firefox Developer Edition, but that's alright.

Just a single suggestion: downloads open by default in the sidebar

Esta valoración es de una versión anterior del complemento (1.6.8.0.1-let-fixed). 

I'm glad you like it. :)

I've considered doing that before, but so far the preferred method to show the downloads still seems to be the panel popup. I may change that in the future though, when I have more feedback on it.

「サイドバー」の決定版です! Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

随分と以前に、絶大な人気のある「All-in-One Sidebar」を使用していました。 そして、この「OmniSidebar」も試用したことがありました。
その当初は、より多機能だった「All-in-One Sidebar」を選択しましたが、度々と(サイドバーが、勝手に開閉を繰り返すなど)制御不能になったり、Firefox の応答性や安定性にも支障が出たため、サイドバー自体の利用は止めてしまいました。

現在使用している forked - Firefox(派生版)の「Cyberfox」が高性能なうえ、他の便利な addons のお陰もあり、サイドバー(の便利さ)を忘却していました。

今回、「Puzzle Bars」の素晴らしさに触発されて、この作者の「OmniSidebar」を再度、install し、試してみました。
約一年ぶりのサイドバー体験ですが、当時からの “進化 & 深化” は目覚ましく、動作は安定しており、デザイン、機能も洗練されたもので、とても感動しました。 「サイドバー」の決定版です!

この作者(Quicksaver : Luís Miguel)の手になる作品群は、何れも “傑作品” です。 どれもが “完璧で、芸術品” の域です。

Could you be more specific on what points you like and, more importantly, what reasons did you have for lowering the ranking? Otherwise I will never know what could be improved, nor will others reading your review benefit much from it.

Awesome extension Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

5 star and thinking of making a donation.
feature request,
can side bar fonts be increased via ctrl+.
I have a web page in sidebar, would be cool to be able to select which page to open, eg, rss feed, or other besides the ones in default.

If you mean you'd like to open normal webpages in the sidebar, that is already planned as a future feature (check the support page for the "issue" about it). Unfortunately my availability to work on the add-on is very limited lately, so I can't give you a release date for when this will be done.

scratcpad (shift-f4) it is impossible to open when the auto-close this regulation will be submitted

please fixit

Thanks for telling me about these. All these bugs will be fixed in the next version 1.6.3.

Please note that the version numbers not appearing in the add-ons sidebar is not a bug. This is a deliberate change in the Add-ons Manager for Firefox 40, it is not caused by OmniSidebar. But I will add to my to-do list an option to show the version numbers again, as part of my "enhancements for the add-ons sidebar" plan for future features.

Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

The fix for Firefox 40 add-on manager is included in the developer version.

Thank you devs for patching everything so fast. If only mozilla reviewed add-ons sooner:)

This is now on my "Can't Live Without" add-ons list Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

I love it. I've been using it for several days now and it seems to be glitch-free on my Windows 8.1, FF v. 39 system. Does exactly what it claims to do and doesn't hog memory doing it. It is also more unobtrusive than AiOS.

Simply Superb and far superior to AIO Sidebar Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

This awesome add-on is like the update that AIO Sidebar never had. It's worth it, for it's docking function alone, and better AERO Glass support. To boot, this Dev is a class act, down to the way he asks for his users to contribute. It's a great reminder that maintaining Firefox requires a community; a community that looks out for it self. Something that corporations will never, ever do. I will be donating myself, when funds allow it. Dev's that work exclusively on Firefox add-ons are rare, but should be acknowledged since Firefox is far superior when it comes to our privacy. Google's Chrome should never be an option if that's a concern to you. If you're a long time AIO sidebar user, definitely give this a try. I've never looked back.
