X-notifier (for Gmail,Hotmail,Yahoo,AOL ...)

4.1.4 works great on ESR 52.3 on Xubuntu 16.04.3 Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

4.1.4 fixed the Hotmail issue for me as far as I can determine now, Thanks!
Works fine with Gmail and Yahoo as well on my FF ESR 52.3.
Dang Mozilla developers keep breaking extensions every 6 weeks and I'll have none of that. If you have problems with your extensions (including this one) roll back to an ESR version such as 52 and don't let it auto update until long past the ESR expiration date and even then be careful, Mozilla probably has broken everything very badly by then. If possible use an alternate Mozilla based browser that uses the older base, if your extensions work on it. I had to give up SeaMonkey finally because of some update on it and none of my extensions, and half the things I expected on it worked! (This was a couple years ago now.)
Don't know why they don't make sure ALL extensions work from just one version to the next when they get another version (Chrome seems to work fine no matter the version, and FF has become more and more like Chrome since the stupid rapid update process EXCEPT for this.) At the very least Mozilla could re-write ALL the extensions to work with the new version, instead of depending on the developers of the extensions to do it, and not change versions until they do, say every three to four years.

X-notifier (for Gmail,Hotmail,Yahoo,AOL ...)

firefox versioning problem with hotmail Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

I noticed when updating to a new version of firefox, even a minor revision, hotmail (OWA/Live.com) needs to have a notification code entered in order for x-notifier to work properly.
I could click the hotmail account and it would open the sign in to your email page, then the password page, which would have a check box "do not ask again" on this device, and I do not have 2-step verification turned on.
even a minor version revision, such as updating Firefox from version 52.x (I think it was 52.0.1 to version 52.3 ESR, Microsoft would recognize it as a different device, and I would have to go to security settings and enter a new verification code. It's not the extension causing this, but the way Microsoft apparently recognizes browser versioning, and the stupid "rapid update" process (every six weeks breaking every extension) on Firefox itself.

CacheViewer

Need instructions on how to open? Noté 4 sur 5 étoiles

Instructions to open it: http://park2.wakwak.com/~benki/how_to_use_cacheviewer.html
Basically it's in tools> web developer in the menu, OR you can add it as an icon on the toolbar from customize. It's not obvious, should be included in the description of the add-on.
Otherwise, version 08361letfixed works fine on FF 52 Linux as it previously did in versions back to the original (when I was on Windows) years ago.

googlebar

Original Googlebar works fine on Seamonkey 2.26.1 Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

Googlebar 0.9.20.05 works fine on Seamonkey 2.26.1 on XP, and, I believe, on most versions of Linux. I won't touch anything Microsoft after seeing what Vista turned out to be, and the horrid Windows 7 and 8 releases.
Just hit the "install anyway" after you've hit the install button. Even the Googlebar Display button works, which stopped working a LONG time ago in Firefox. (This button hides the googlebar, allowing more screen height.) UPDATE: works on Firefox 24.
Also all the functions work and are customizable. I've found, however, the latest Google Maps "revert to classic maps" doesn't save that setting in Seamonkey, if you go there via the maps button on the original googlebar, so you HAVE to hit the question mark and revert it (per every session.) UPDATE: classic google maps is GONE. Even "My Maps" is gone.
The installer is looking for Firefox 10 for some strange reason, probably because this version was originally written for Firefox 10 but will work on Versions 2 to 19. Works on Seamonkey 1.0 to 2.2. DOES NOT work with 20 and above on Firefox and especially 30+s with the Google Chrome interface. (Too many version changes, which break nearly every extension I use every 6 weeks in Firefox prompted me to quit using it and use Seamonkey.) The Google Chrome/ Firefox 30 "Australius" combined project really had me flustered! Too bad Firefox is now almost entirely supported by Google, and I suppose that's why they now simply use Chrome as their base and not the original Netscape Navigator interface and code. UPDATE: OK it's not Google Chrome engine, still, looks like it. Why I went to Seamonkey.
Too bad Opera went the same way, as well. UPDATE: yes, Opera is now based on Google Chrome.
*6/2015
UPDATE: even the fixed version won't work with Seamonkey 2.33. Error console showing a bunch of errors in the lines of code, such as: {Timestamp: 6/17/2015 1:30:28 AM
Error: myGooglebarPrefUtil is undefined
Source File: chrome://googlebar/content/googlebarOverlay.js
Line: 248.}
No tricks I've tried will work. Reverted to Seamonkey 2.32 for now. works fine. WHY does Mozilla have to keep breaking things that work?

Startpage HTTPS Privacy Search Engine

OR IXquick Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

Ticktock, try IXQuick (also mentioned in other reviews.) From their website: "StartPage returns Google results in complete privacy and never shares your information with Google.
However, if you prefer to search without receiving Google results, please check out our sister search engine, Ixquick.
Ixquick is also a 100% private search engine, just like StartPage, but instead of providing Google results, Ixquick is a "meta-search" engine that submits your query privately to multiple search engines.
Ixquick never queries Google and never returns Google search results."
So, as to the other reviewers who say IXQuick is gone: nope! Add it, too.

Print Edit

Does what I wanted Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

Just wanted to print selected text to printer, AT top of printed page. Selecting this from the file menu, then selecting the text (or a picture) I want, then selecting "delete except" and "unrestricted" does this. Why isn't something like this (print selection) built into Firefox natively, I seem to recall it was back in version 1.5 or so, then things went awry, and instead of adding back in standard features... no further comment.

Print selected text

Not quite what I wanted. Noté 4 sur 5 étoiles

Prints only selected text, as advertised, without format (you can select font size in "addons" preferences. HOWever, I installed "Print Edit" instead and select it from the file menu, THEN you can simply select the text you wish to print, click "delete except" and select "restricted" in the dropdown, and then preview. You can now print FORMATTED text, or pictures. Using the above method it even moves the placement on the page to the top.

All I get when I try to download this, in Firefox 4 is a page that says:
