Very very cute!

EmojiT - Emoji Panel for Twitter

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very cool - I would recommend the smilie `Icon--smileRating5Fill` instead of the current one. It matches more. Is this addon for Firefox only? If so I would love to provide a pull request with some ideas.

FreeBSD Manual Pages

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Wow this is amazing. I do a bunch of js-ctypes to use native platform APIs, so this is really amazing. Thank you!

Config Descriptions

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Super nice idea, it would be nice if it can support all config keys. Maybe via a wiki like mozillazine has.

Profile Buttons

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I haven't tested this, but thanks for making this. I created the addon Profilist - and have linked to this addon from there because users have asked me about a button in the browser to access profiles, I don't have plans for that, so this is a great alternative (if it works).

Fox Web Security

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I installed this on my siblings computers. This is a wonderful tool thank you for it! It's effective for those kids that inadvertently get epxosed to it - so the kids that are not wanting to get to bad stuff this helps to just keep it off their mind. But if someone wants to disable it they can get around it.

Torrent Tornado

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is the greatest addon ever. Is it possible to make all the work happen in a ChromeWorker? Because it noticebly lags out my browser. Like hovering over links and stuff takes a while to recognize. I just reformatted my computer, and only thing on it is Firefox and TorrentTornado so i'm sure its TT. (not using e10s right now)

KDE5 Wallet password integration

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks very much for reply Guillermo! It seems masterpassword addon uses DBus from js-ctypes to tap into KWallet - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/files/browse/359914/file/lib/dbus.js#L21 - does that not allow us to use full power of KWallet?

There is a jscpp-types which is just some code we can drop into our addons - https://github.com/ochameau/jscpptypes - would you be able to use this to bypass the .SO file? I am super eager to see someone use js-ctypes to use C++ stuff on Linux. I did it on Windows with COM here - https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/js-ctypes/Examples/Using_COM_from_js-ctypes - if you have sometime and could try to use this to do KWallet with no .SO I would be so so interested to see that! I would document/blog about it :P If you get a chance may you please try? :) haha

KDE5 Wallet password integration

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a very cool addon. You use a native .SO file and tap into it with js-ctypes.

There is an addon here that bypasses the .SO file and uses the platform API directly with js-ctypes. You might find it interesting. I mentioned it because I'm hoping the two you authors can get togather and have some synergy :) To make an even cooler experience. :)

Paste to Tab and Go

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Wow fantastic I needed an addon that would paste & go to new tab so made it myself and was uploading it to AMO then came across this. My addon is seriously low tech 15minute whip up. But it uses localization of the browse itself so i dont need to provide my own. But it also shows the"Paste &Go - new tab" item when you click anywhere on the tab strip, could you please add that feature to this addon, I love your idea of "paste to specific tab" and go i might find that useful too, but i definitely need the "paste and go in new tab" available in a right click anywhere in the tab strip.

Edit: wow i just downloaded this and it works exactly as i wanted!! Super cool, no need for my addon. But would be nice if this was restartless :) And man the "paste and go to new background tab" in url bar is so useful!!

Edit edit: Ah it needs to obey the shift key with respect to browse setting for focus: https://github.com/Noitidart/Paste-Go-with-New-Tab/blob/master/bootstrap.js#L28-L42 (except for the "paste and go to new bg tab" that shows in urlbar right click, that should always load in background tab, because if i wanted a new tab i would have right clicked just a couple centimeters over :P

Edit edit edit: when i click on a tab i only see "paste to this tab and go" i need the "paste to new tab and go" too please. Becuase i have so many tabs i have no whitespace in tab bar to click on :( I would love to collaborate with you on this to make it restartless and land these features. And fully localized :)

ShuFu Privacy

Totally awesome! Great GUI, better then the default GUI! With added perk of superb security! Thanks!

ChatZilla

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Can we get an option to open this in a tab, i would love to have this as a pinned tab. Currently i do that with mibbit but on every startup i have to manually join all my regular channels.

Select like a Boss

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The move up/down to drag while STILL allowing the move left/right to select is just absolutely BRILLIANT!!! Utterly brilliant!! Wish this was Firefox only. Discovered this thanks to the gHacks article about it.

FastPrevNext

Fantastic I haven't found a site yet where it fails in the smart detection of going to the actual next or previous page. Awesome! Please add hotkey support.

Torrent Tornado

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

What an excellent add-on idea! I've been wanting one of these for a long time as I can't really trust what's out there to be ad-free etc. Will use this and let you know how it works!

DOM Inspector

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Please add link to "Element Inspector" add-on, it allows Shift + Right clicking any element and it brings it up in this DOM Inspector. This "Element Inspector" makes DOM inspector so so powerful, especially for hover and pop up elements.

Addons Manager Hilite

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

When you have so many add-ons this thing is awesome. Especially because by default it's sorted by enabled/disabled. And this has an option to go alpha only. But I like the enabled/disabled, so this higlight feature comes in way handy. Especially for add-on devs.

Fetaure request: When it rehighlights can you also make it try to remember the scroll position as best as possible?

TLDR: Too Long Didn't Read

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very very interesting how this works. I'm using it and reading the article both full and condensed, will report back if the condensed version captures all the important parts.

I really like the summarize certain part of a page, it's great!

I especially like how when you change from long to medium or short it tries to maintain the same position it was scrolled at. Nice job guys!
