Microsoft .NET Framework Assistant

A solution to reinstallation (?) Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I hate this addon and have also been plagued by it being reinstalled by MS.
I *think* I found the solution though....

1) Start with this: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/963707
2) Use Method 2... BUT ... only do steps 1 and 2.
Yes, the Preference isn't there, but you can create a new one (right click anywhere in the preferences wiindow... and... New) and then Reset it as instructed.

The addon is gone from my addons list... and... I think MS will still see it's installed because I haven't messed with their folder.

I'll repost if it comes back.

Noia 4

Thunderbird 5.0 Version?? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

UPDATE: Thanks, Aris, for your quick reply and for modding one for us all.
Actually, since I wrote, I tried changing maxVersion in install.rdf to 6 for both noia2_full and noia2_full_xt and it seems to work fine except for some minor oddities in the extension mgr and the About Firefox page. Works fine otherwise though!
(... I assume that's what you did (?))
Thanks again.

Looks great ! Can you do a version that works with Thunderbird 5.0 ? On T'bird, we're stuck with T'bird 4.0 if we want to keep the old Noia 2.0 eXtreme theme.Thanks for considering it !

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.9).

Today's Fix for AdBlock Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I don't use this addon.... I use a custom filter within AdBlock to accomplish the same thing.
If this helps either a user or the developer of this addon to get a fix, the following AdBlock custom filter works..

Phoenity Next (formerly Phoenity Reborn)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

DaVoodoo....
Xavius has provided a 3.6 version for testing and you can find it by clicking "View all versions" at the bottom of this page.

It works, but you'll lose the configuration options if you change to another Theme and change back.... for more specifics, see the Support Section.

This is my favorite theme for FF and I'm looking forward to however Xavius releases this for 3.6 !

This add-on can be made to work with the current version of FF in several different ways if you really want it.... just read older reviews.

Helpful working prelims Rated 5 out of 5 stars

All rights reserved?? This is open source SW.
If Pedro is concerned, it'd be great to have an approved version.
... until then, I'm glad there are helpful working prelim versions posted throughout these reviews.

Snap Links

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

For those that can't wait, Lim-Dul's post of June 6th has a link that works for me (assuming left click; see my previous post of June 18th)
Who has the technical capability to make this official? (Or, is the proposed 0.0.5 version by Atreus posted on May 24th the way to go?)

Snap Links

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I love this addon but had a problem with FF3: My right-click context menu for forms (includes cut, paste) went away... it's as if the form wasn't there.
The workaround that seems to work is that I changed the SnapLinks options so that the left button draws instead of right... now my right-click options on forms are back.... any other suggestions appreciated!
