My Reviews

Keyword Search

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Ever since the new update, typing multiple words divided by a space into the urlbar and pressing Enter or the Go button does nothing in SeaMonkey. This was useful for getting to sub levels of sites, like typing "yahoo mail" would take me directly to the Yahoo Mail login page.

Please consider adding support for SeaMonkey!

Classicish Add-on Manager

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very cool. I do have one suggestion though. If you could please change line 260 of extensions_override.css, (for .category) from "width: 4.5em;" to "min-width: 4.5em"? Hard-coding the width like this makes it inflexible to some modifications I'm doing. It would also be nice if your extension added an attribute or a class to #addons-page so that userstyles, themes, and extensions could actually support it. It's impossible to detect if it's on from CSS.

Edit: Thanks... I figured out a way around it: width:100%!important; ... this overrides the fixed width and uses the appropriate width for the content. Trying to get everything to work in my latest version of SeaFox, which has even more "classic" look. :)

Keyword Search

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I liked this extension very much when it came out but the latest update seems to have a serious bug: it sometimes fails to work. Just now I had it actually reset my settings to the defaults, after just using it not 2 hours ago!

On other occasions, it shows the correct settings under Options, but uses Google search. In those cases, Disabling and Enabling the extension gets it running again.

It would also be great to see this extension for SeaMonkey!

PDF Viewer(discontinued)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This version is listed here as 0.1.0 but shows up in the Addons Manager as 2.123. You guys might think about getting that matched up for the folks playing at home.

Re: Thanks... I must have installed it from there. The 0.2 versions are much improved over the original 0.1!

YesScript

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I completely disagree with David, below... NoScript is not in any way easy to use, especially considering that it blocks more than scripts and setting it up as blacklist is complicated.

I have however run into a problem with YesScript. Running in 3.6 in Private Browsing mode, if I disable or even uninstall YesScript, the blacklist continues to function and block JS on those sites.

Generic chrome CSS loader

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love this extension, but in the new version the window is too narrow. Please make the window resizeable or back to it's old width!

YesScript

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Well, even with it only accepting top-level domains, it's still working great to disable the awful mess that is the new Google Image search. Please consider adding an option to remove the status-bar icon.

YesScript

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Why are you truncating the url? If I specify a url, I want to block that url, not the *entire domain*. Please fix this to allow blocking not just top-level domains!

ShareBird, you are an inspiration! We've been waiting a LONG time to be able to do this!

OptimizeGoogle

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

THANK YOU for reviving this add-on, and bringing some much needed additions and fixes! I have three requests:

1. Add alternative searches to Google Image Search. Yahoo and Bing are probably the main ones.

2. Block Google Sidebars. Although I think this feature is still under trial and today I am not seeing the new layouts in searches... so many it's not needed YET, but it's something to look out for in the future! If Google goes the way of Bing, God help us all!!

3. Force Google to use normal sized fonts. The kindergarten-sized fonts seem to appear randomly in search boxes, and the randomness makes it even more annoying.

Generic chrome CSS loader

Very helpful! It still needs some work, I'm hoping for a Restart button on the dialog and to see it appear in the Tools menu.

Generic chrome CSS loader

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is very exciting! I'm only giving it four stars because it still needs some work... as in the Revert and Try It buttons don't appear to do anything. I'd love to see a Restart button right on the dialog, and I'd love to see this one put right on the Tools menu. Great start!

Hide Menubar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I don't get why people are upset? I love the new auto feature! However, Alt-Tab is an OS level command and should not be used by any Firefox application. Anyway, I loved using this one in 3.0 and missed it and I'm glad it's back for 3.5 and upgraded!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.20090705). 

Hide Menubar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great tool... I love that it adds Menu Toolbar to the right-click options... at the very least that should become part of the standard FF options! It takes compact themes to the extreme!
