Re-Pagination

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've used this add-on for years and it's still a great add-on. Using it in Ff v46.01 as of this writing with no issues what so ever. Works just as described. Follow directions; right click on the "Next" link (or equivalent) then implement re-pagination via your menu. DO NOT right click on the page numbers listed.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2015.10.11).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Add-on is broken. Link posted by nfreed below "can not be verified" as secure and a warning page flags it. Looks like another great add-on abandoned. Sad. Why do the good add-ons get abandoned? This was originally created by a great Swedish college student whom graduated and passed the torch on to a developer group. Whomever's behind this one now has seemingly simply abandoned it. If not I apologize, but it would be nice to know the status of things either way. Thanks...

Extension List Dumper

Replaced Infolister because it's not supported anymore. Just installed ELD on Ff v18.0.2 and it seems to work okay. No problems seen with short term tests so far. ELD and Infolister are the only two add-ons I've found that perform this feature and hope one or both are maintained indefinitely... or until Ff dev's wise up and make this a default feature within Ff, although I'm not holding my breath as these common sense things seem to take Mozilla development forever to realize, let alone incorporate. Thanks to the developer "Sogame" for providing this feature add-on so we can keep track of what we have installed regarding add-ons. ELD DOES NOT list plug-ins as did Infolister. That would be a big plus to add the option to include the installed plug-ins to the list along with the add-ons. Thanks Sogame!

Does what it's designed to do! Had to replace the deprecating add-on 'Liquid Words' which has been "sadly" and openly abandoned by it's developer. Thank you mehtuus for creating and maintaining this simple but priceless add-on. Outstanding! (Ff 17.0.1)

Restart

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Good add-on! Shortcut key combo Ctrl + Alt + R doesn't work nor does any other offered key combo except Alt + R in my browser (Ff v17.0.1). Other than that it works. I personally don't like the green icon. It stands out like a sore thumb on blue colored browser scheme. Developer should offer a simple black colored icon or a user option to change/replace it. Overall the add-on serves it's purpose.

Restartless Restart

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

File Menu restart works. Bar button works but upon restart it places itself to the far right regardless of initial position. Keyboard shortcut does not work. Cannot alter shortcut command. No matter what key shortcut is used it renders a blank area on the 'File' menu for the altered key. i.e... Default shortcut keys are "accel,alt" which renders as "ctl + alt + R" on the 'File' menu. In settings, replace the "accel" with any other key designation and it's rendered on the 'File' menu as "{blank area - as in nothing at all showing on menu} + alt + R". Bottom line; this add-on needs some serious refinement/work. It's a great idea, but until it actually works as advertize the search continues. Uninstalled.

Question for developer: Why use 'accel' for the alt key when 'alt' is the defacto default?

FoxyTunes

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Another fantastic add-on ruined and abandoned by corporate America. I've been a user since the beta days and remember/miss the original developer and her active involvement with the community. Now it's just another non-supported, ignored, joke of an add-on being killed off by the big corporate yahoo machine. Sad, soooo sad... and so long Foxytunes. Uninstalling and moving on. *BIG SIGH*.

Re-Pagination

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks for reviving this add-on! Works perfectly! A needed add-on that's priceless when used. Saves much time and frustration on pages with multiple sub-pages. Scroll through them without having to stop, click, and wait for a new page to load. No more need for multiple tabs while researching whatever it is your looking at/for. Even works on Google search as well as my favorite search engine = Yippy! Great job Nils! Keep it up. Thanks!

Toggle Word Wrap

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great add-on Kaspar! Thanks for your time designing this!

I'm in agreement with "shaurz" comment "Unfortunately the accelerator Ctrl+Shift+O is already used by "Organise Bookmarks" on Linux.". Confirmed. Using this shortcut doesn't work and it needs to be changed.

Keep up this great extension! Thanks.

A Calendar, To-Do/Task list, and your email... all in one place!
A long awaited combo that's simply OUTSTANDING!!! Thank you for developing this fantastic tool for TB. Keep up the great work!


Works great on my Linux box! (I don't use the on-line calendar sync feature though. No need at this time.)

Remove Duplicate Messages (Alternate)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

@Eyal,

Thank you for rewriting this extension Eyal so that all may enjoy the simplicity it affords us, and the time it saves keeping our email folders clean and uncluttered because of excess duplicates. This is a can't-live-without ext'n! A must have for anyone with any amount of emails.

For those of you who don't realize what Eyal has done here, and the gift given us, read the mozdev page http://removedupes.mozdev.org/ .

Thank you Eyal for reviving this ext'n. ;)

Folderpane Tools

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

..ext'n that's just simple and awesome all rolled into one. This "should be a TB default option". But since it isn't, many thanks to you for developing 'Folderpane Tools'. Outstanding! Please keep this one around and up-to-date, at least 'til you can talk TB developers into incorporating it as a built in feature. ;)

Enhanced History Manager

Book Text Mark

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great extension Roman!!

Thank you very much for the updated Ff3 version. Works as smooth as silk on Ubuntu Linux. I'm once again one-happy-camper. Now I can resume my on-line reading and mark where I left off so I can return to it later with an automatic bookmark in the bookmark drop-down list menu entry for "Book Text Mark" when I have time to continue reading.

Thanks for your efforts creating this ext'n Roman! It's the only on-line book/page-marking utility I know of and we hope it stays around for a very long time.

Please don't let this one fall by the wayside.

Regards,
BigThunder1
