    Findbar Tweak has a lot of settings and needs a way to export/import them.

    Classic Compact Themes looks good but isn’t available for Nightly.

    Please don’t let the whiners stop you from continuing development of Australis. It’s what Firefox has needed since the beginning. I wish you would go back to offering the 64-bit version. Now I’m stuck with using unstable Nightly 64-bit.

      Classic Compact is undergoing a complete rebuild for FF29 (Nightly) because of Australis. I don’t normally keep Classic Compact compatible with Nightly because it requires too much work, but if you would be interested in helping with testing the rebuild on nightly, I’d be most appreciative.

      You can find my theme testing thread on the MozillaZine forums at: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=2139611

      The first post of the thread contains a link that always points to the first post for the current round of testing and to the download location for the latest test build of Classic Compact.

      I personally can do testing on WinXP, Win7 and Linux, but I can not do testing on OS X. As such, I’m especially in need of testers running OS X, but any testing on any OS is greatly appreciated.

        I have Classic Compact installed in FF 29 64-bit. I’ll let you know if I like it or not. But so far it looks great.

    Dear Dwight,

    I’m actually already planning to add a way to export/import settings like you suggested. This one, along with many, many other changes, most of them requested by users, are taking a while to complete because I don’t have much free time to work on my add-ons. But they’ll come, thank you for the suggestion. 😉

    Hello Amy,

    Thank you very much for the great post.

    Amy, I want to apply for Featured add-ons. Do you think my add-on can apply? I am sorry, I am new to Mozilla Add-ons site and I wanted to ask you before applying.

      Hi Zalgiris, go ahead and send an email to amo-featured@mozilla.org to nominate your add-on. Thanks!

    Hi Amy,

    Thank you so much for your reply. I sent the email. But after I sent, I noticed my AOL mail program misinterpreted some links. I am not sure if it got correct for amo-featured@mozilla.org. I did not send again not to sound spamming but do I need to resend the email if the links are broken?

    Thanks again.
