Mes critiques

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.

Google Images Basic v1.0

Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles

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