Open Bookmarks in New Tab Vaatii uudelleenkäynnistyksen

After you installed this addon to your Firefox, bookmarks are opened in new tab always.

This project seems needless on Firefox 57 and later. You just go to "about:config" and turn "browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInTabs" to "true".

Arvosteltu: 5/5 tähteä

Good alternative of a legacy addon "Grab and Drag".


Good enough choice to restore the feature Arvosteltu: 5/5 tähteä

There are some similar addons, but this is the simplest way.

Content Scrollbar

Helpful for long web pages Arvosteltu: 4/5 tähteä

With this addon, I can jump to each section without dragging the scrollbar. This is very useful on such cases: I know the page includes a specific topic but I don't know where it is. Different from in-page search, existing summaries (headings) are shown visually beside the scrollbar.

For Japanese (and Chinese, Korean) people, I recommend you to customize the hidden preference "extensions.contentscrollbar.textlength" to "firstTenCharacters". By default it is "firstThreeWords" but it works same as "entireText" for CJK webpages because CJK terms don't include white spaces to split words in most cases. In such cases, "firstTenCharacters" will work better than the default. (I want to enlarge the number of max characters than 10, but sadly it can't be done...)

One request, it will make me happy that auto-hide feature for this addon. Even if I want to see contents near the scrollbar, there are links made by this addon so sometimes they cover the contents. If those links are hidden (or shown with very small width) by default and become expanded to full size when I move my mouse near the scrollbar, they won't interfere with my view.

By the way, I currently use this with another addon "Custom Buttons" ( https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/custom-buttons/ ) to add a toolbar button to toggle functionality of it.
My button "Toggle Content Scrollbar" is defined with following codes:

Initialization Code:
var key = 'extensions.contentscrollbar.enabled';
var Prefs = Cc['@mozilla.org/preferences;1'].getService(Ci.nsIPrefBranch);
this.type = 'checkbox';
this.autoCheck = false;
this.checked = Prefs.getBoolPref(key);

var key = 'extensions.contentscrollbar.enabled';
var Prefs = Cc['@mozilla.org/preferences;1'].getService(Ci.nsIPrefBranch);
Prefs.setBoolPref(key, !this.checked);
this.checked = Prefs.getBoolPref(key);

Japanese version:


なお、自分はこのアドオンの機能の有効・無効を簡単に切り替えられるように、Custom Buttons( https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/custom-buttons/ )というアドオンと併用しています。新しいユーザ定義ボタン「Toggle Content Scrollbar」を作成して、Initialization CodeとCodeの内容を上記の通り設定しています。

Send Tab to Device

Arvosteltu: 4/5 tähteä

This is the feature I really wanted. With this addon, I don't have to use an inconvenient feature "Tabs From Other Computers". Just I have to "send" the tab to another computer, then the tab will be opened in the computer automatically.

One point, the "send this page to device" menu is possibly unstable for me. When I initially installed this addon, the menu doesn't appear and it suddenly appeared.

Note: the XPI file of the version 0.2.2 is broken. There is only the file "install.rdf" and no executable code. I had to clone the github repository and build an XPI with the latest SDK by my hand.

Cool addon for tab addicts! Arvosteltu: 5/5 tähteä

If you have too many tabs, restarting of Firefox pains you because it reloads all of background tabs at the startup. However, if you install this addon, you don't mind to restart Firefox.

By the way, this completely works with Tree Style Tab. I have 70 or more tabs anytime, and I can't manage them without the TST. This combination helps me. Thanks!

Conform SearchBox(with automatic learning)

Arvosteltu: 4/5 tähteä

The auto-discovery for search boxes in unknown websites is very interesting. You don't have to register special rules for websites anymore. Only a concern, this seems to support character-encodings for Japanese language (Shift_JIS, EUC-JP, etc.). I hope this will be updated for other languages, e.g. Chinese.

Correct Identity

Arvosteltu: 4/5 tähteä

This is a must-have for me. I set messages to my private mail address to be forwarded to my business mail address. When I want to reply to a forwarded message, by default it was sent from the business account. However, after I installed this addon, I don't have to check and confirm what account is now selected, because this selects suitable account automatically!

Quote Colors

Arvosteltu: 4/5 tähteä

This is very useful! I frequently receive messages containing deeply nested quotations, so I cannot imagine how terrible if this isn't available. Moreover, this provides extra options for hidden preferences of Thunderbird itself.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.9). 

CuteMenus - Crystal SVG

Arvosteltu: 4/5 tähteä

I recommend this for any Thunderbird users. With this addon, you can find out the menu item you want to use even if there are too many menu items in a menu.

To be honest I want to use CuteMenus Classic on Thunderbird, but I cannot do it because the addon doesn't support Thunderbird... anyway, this is still very useful.

Mail Redirect

Arvosteltu: 3/5 tähteä

I like this. "Forward" feature modifies subject and body of resent messages, but I don't want the modification. So, so I use this to resend messages to another person.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.5). 

Remove Duplicate Messages (Alternate)

Arvosteltu: 3/5 tähteä

I use this addon sometimes. For backup, I always BCC messages to myself, so many duplicated messages are in my mailbox. This completely clears those duplicated messages with easy operation.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.2). 

Session Manager

Arvosteltu: 4/5 tähteä

Good. This helps me about creating multiple backups of sessions. For addon authors, single backup (created by Firefox itself) seems precarious, because we have to restart Firefox again and again.

Secure Login

Arvosteltu: 4/5 tähteä

Good. By default, I have to input some characters to show stored password when I use multiple accounts on a website. This provides ability to choose stored passwords (and accounts) from a visual popup.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.3). 

Tag Dialog

Arvosteltu: 4/5 tähteä

This is very useful when I want to set multiple tags in a time. For example, when I receive bug reports, I do:
1) Select received messages.
2) Hit "I" key (to show tag dialog.)
3) Hit Alt-6, Alt-7 (they are shortcuts for tags "unprocessed" and "bug".)
4) Finally, hit Enter.
Then, the dialog closes and selected messages are tagged.

CuteMenus Classic

Arvosteltu: 5/5 tähteä

I recommend this for any people. Firefox has many menu items so I have to read each labels every time. After you install this addon, small icons in menu items powerfully help you to detect what menu item is you want.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.4). 

Adaptive Referer Remover

Arvosteltu: 4/5 tähteä

Works well. This is available on Firefox 3.5 completely! (Yes, I installed this by ingoring version check.)

If you're an author of addons, you should see the code. It's very smart and simple, so this works on many versions of Firefox including trunk.


Arvosteltu: 5/5 tähteä

Very nice. It is a hard work to choose a file in a deep folder, by the default UI, especially when I have to choose multiple files. However, with this addon, you only have to do it: drag files from Explorer, and drop onto forms in webpages. I recommend this for any people!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.8). 

Resizeable Textarea

Arvosteltu: 5/5 tähteä

Very nice. On the web, there are too many small forms, so they often annoy me. This is very easy to use - only doing drag-and-grab edges of those forms.

I recommend this for any people. I think this should be a standard feature of Firefox.

Download Statusbar

Arvosteltu: 5/5 tähteä

Cool! I dislike the default "download manager" and the notification popup. They sometimes block my task so I'm annoyed. Then, this bar helps me, with smart & tiny UI for parallel downloads in the background.

Grab and Drag

Arvosteltu: 5/5 tähteä

One of its features, "momentum scroll" is very funny and useful. When I browse webpages roughly, I don't have to hit SPACE key or use scroll wheel. Only I have to do that: move mouse (or my finger on the slide pad) quickly. With this addon, I'm comfortable while browsing.
