Mis revisiones

Quick Search Bar

Phenomenal Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

Brilliant idea, excellent execution and an essential addon. Greatly improves the browsing experience.

I do however *still* get an issue where the search bar 'hangs' on Google search (like without this extension installed, but without the ability to click in the box to input text), and I have to right click on the toolbar and select 'Customise...' to get it to spring back to the set of icons.

EDIT: No, it's set for 0ms/instantaneous. Thanks for the reply. I've had this problem for many months. I recently disabled all but my most essential addons and it still happened, right after I re-enabled Adblock Plus, although I think that was just coincidence. It only happens on occasion, maybe once a day, and it is not obvious/easy to isolate the cause, especially since it only happens infrequently and I often only realise it has happened when I do the next search. The only search addon apart from this that I have used previously is 'Add to Search Bar'. I only install that addon when I want to add another search engine, and have not had it installed or disabled for months.

Lifesaver Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

I like the 'Force' setting. I would probably spend a few hours a week grappling with excessive tabs if it were not for this addon. Priceless.

See 'Quicksaver''s review below and install 'FindBar Tweak' instead.

A further word of warning Puntuado con 1 de 5 estrellas

Click below for my previous review. Another word of warning: The extension will wreak havok from the moment you install it. There is no setup/enable post install. You just install it and then dice with death as to whether it will work flawlessly or instantaneously mess up all your bookmarks (not to mention immediately on any other device you happen to have connected as well). Since it both syncs both ways and merges both ways, and does so immediately, duplicates are inevitable. The more devices, the worse the problem. Accidentally delete an entire bookmark folder? Apple will automatically sync (and hence delete) this bookmark set immediately from all your devices, with no way to stop it or go back. Doesn't even work well with only one device - still manages to mess things up with reordering folders etc.. The underlying flaw with this addon is that it assumes that the bookmark set in the cloud is the flawless one - which is illogical since the user manages all BUT this set directly. The addon has no customisation menu whatsoever, no options and no user controls. It is horrifically bad. I have installed over 300 addons over the course of 9 years of Firefox use, and this is far and away the worst addon I have ever experienced. Does Apple even have a quality control/testing team for their Windows products???

Favoritos de iCloud

Horrific. Impossible to guarantee will work as desired Puntuado con 1 de 5 estrellas

This is my first ever one-star review. I was naive enough to think that because it was made by Apple, it couldn't be as broken as people said it was. This addon is a mess. It syncs all devices both ways, duplicating bookmarks (and reduplicating if you disable then enable again), seems to randomly delete and rearrange even legacy bookmarks, and it has no customisation controls. If the bookmarks stored on iCloud get messed up with duplicates etc., there is no way to delete that. If you sort out the bookmarks locally, it will re-push the mess back to your device. In the desire for simplicity, Apple has created an extension that is like black magic. For some it will work like magic - for now. But if something goes wrong or not as you desire, there is no way to correct it. Apple needs to understand that simplicity is great, but you need to hide away some advanced options such as replacing cloud bookmarks with the local set, so that people have a way to manage the bookmark set in the cloud directly. You have been warned. Use at your own risk. I strongly recommend backing up your bookmarks first if you choose to use this addon. Fortunately I did, otherwise this review would have been incredibly and abyssally scathing.

Brilliant addon. Please update. Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

Flawless. Please update for FF26.

Stealthy

Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

Perfectly fine for me. I just wanted a simple, no-hassle addon that does all the proxy stuff for me, and this is it. Sometimes you have to click on the button a few times to find a working server but for the convenience and for free I think it is perfectly fine. Obviously if you have more specific requirements then you have to do all this proxy stuff yourself - this is for people who just want to access stuff unavailable in your country!

Add Bookmark Here ²

Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

No longer automatically expands the bookmark dialogue in FF v23. I have always found this addon a little slow at loading the bookmark dialogue, and ctrl d does not always work (requiring use of 'add bookmark' from the bookmark menu instead). I have a lot of bookmarks, though, but it is so much faster to load the (small) bookmark dialogue now that this addon is currently not working properly in FF v23.

Selective deleting algorithm Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

At the moment I keep all my backups, but obviously that is not wise long-term. I am reluctant to go for the option that deletes the oldest backups. Sometimes a problem can occur way in the past and only recently become a major issue (for example a localised cororuption that a later update turns into a widespread problem). Therefore it is nice to keep older backups. I was wondering whether an algorithm could be devised that keeps the most recent backups, and also the oldest, but selectively deletes so that the further back in time, the less backups are stored. And then choosing the number of directories to store in total, as there already is the option for. Great extension overall.

Quick Search Bar

Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

I'm also only getting the white box on startup. Right click > Quick Search Bar options > OK solves the problem. White box comes back when you restart your computer.

I'm not the right person to help fix the problem though; I use so many addons my Firefox is a veritable glitch-fest!

I also have a weird issue where the search bar icons are squished widthways (ratio 3.5mm tall by 2.5mm wide), but this does not bother me sufficiently to try to fix it and glitches are inevitable when you use dozens of addons.

Overall, still a genius idea for an addon. Brilliant.

Window and Tab Limiter

Toolbar icon Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

I tend to constantly change the tab limit depending on the current situation. A toolbar icon would be a useful shortcut so I do not have to access the addons page and then scroll down and click on options every time in order to change the tab limit.

Otherwise, this addon is essential at helping you to keep your tab count under control. I like the 'Force' option.

Find In Numbers

Improvement needed Puntuado con 3 de 5 estrellas

It should say like '19 of 34 matches' when you are on the 19th of the 34 matches etc.. It is certainly very useful in its current form, but it would be far more useful if it gave you the number of the results found that is currently highlit.

Favicon Restorer

Thanks Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

Exactly what I wanted. Mozilla used to let people undo changes when they upgrade; their recent forced 'improvements' concern me. I also wish they would stop copying Chrome; what is the point if the two browsers are identical!

Multiple Tab Handler (Manipulador multiple de Pestañas)

Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

Would it be possible to allow for bookmarking the selecting tabs to an existing folder, not just a new folder? This would be ideal for my use of this addon.

Second Search

Puntuado con 3 de 5 estrellas

Good, but I think that the addon Quick Search Bar has a much more elegant, intuitive, and less cumbersome solution. Link: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/quicksearch/.

Classic Toolbar Buttons

Lovely Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

I use a lovely extension called Quick Search Bar (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/quicksearch/). When you use it in conjunction with this extension, this extension squashes the width of the seach bar icons (height:width ratio about 3:2 when they used to be square). It is definitely this extension that causes the problem. Would it be possible to stop this? I can forgive and overlook this issue; just thought I'd ask.

Edit: Problem fixed! Thank you! Also I am really grateful and impressed by the quick response and quick solving of the problem (especially since I forgot to use the support site m(_ _)m).

Happiness Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

I opened Firefox today and saw the changes, did not like them, and it put me in a bad mood. I felt confused; I did not know exactly what had changed about the icons, just that the new icons made it no longer feel like my Firefox anymore, and it put me in a bad mood. I seached on Google for 'Firefox 14 icon change' and found this page, installed this addon, and my happiness was restored.

Thank you for making me happy.

Quick Translator

Good Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

I would like it if when you right click and select 'Translate Selected Text', that the translated text appears where the cursor is in a window next to the text, rather than in the bottom right-hand corner of the browser window (like it does when you click on the translate button). This allows for easier comparing between the original text and the translated text.

(I am reviewing the version that works on recent Firefox versions, i.e. the version available by clicking on the 'Support Site' link, and clicking on the top discussion: 'New Beta - 1.0b2 (includes Google API fix)' and then clicking on the top post by 'igv' and then clicking 'Download'.)
