Speed Dial 2 New tab page

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Quite nice - but still things missing, that are common to other dial addons: set column count per tab (not only one and the same for all tabs!), leave single dials empty by intention.

Bugs in: right click on "refresh thumbnail" for an initial load not working at all! So I get stuck with tons of dials without a thumbnail displayed.

Marketing talk on individual backgrounds and so on - but there is only one and the same background for all tabs. Not possible individual per tab to get some kind of visual theme "separator".

So: things to do until it could be called a good replacement!

Puuuhhh - real bad bug encountered: moving dials inside a tab to re-order them results from time to time in the lost of the moved dial! No restore or "rollup back" possible - it just disappears! What a crap! So stars reduced from 2 to 1!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2.7). 

CardBook

Hat mal gut funktioniert - aktuell furchtbar Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Ich habe das Addon mal sehr gerne genutzt - war ein echter Mehrwert für mich.

Seit einiger Zeit ist Thunderbird bei mir jedoch furchtbar träge gewesen, in der Nachrichtenliste konnte ich z. B. sekundenlang zuschauen, bis der Cursorbalken sich von einer Nachricht zur nächsten bewegt hat, das Öffnen von E-Mails dauerte ähnlich lange.

Habe dann nach und nach Addons deaktiviert und Thunderbird jeweils neu gestartet, bises wieder schneller lief - letztes deaktiviertes Addon war CardBook. Danach habe ich alle anderen Addons wieder aktiviert und Thunderbird reagierte weiterhin so zügig wie früher gewohnt.

Meine Schlussfolgerung: irgendwas macht CardBook bei aktuellen Thunderbird-Versionen falsch und zieht damit das gesamte Programm runter.

Leider so nicht mehr zu empfehlen.

Google Disconnect

Blocking works, but so much? Uhmmmm.... Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Is tracking done by www.gstatic.com? More and more sites are not hosting JavaScripts on their own but link to them on Google servers (there are reasons for, I don't follow them, but there are...) All those pages look crumbled

Captchas by Google are not displayed, either.

Couldn't it be possible to differenciate a little more?

And... if not... what does this addon makes sense after all - because when I want to "use" those pages I need to hit "unblock xyz google requests" without being able to say "this one yes, this one no". So I want to make the page usable, but my usage not trackable more then necessary.

This is a "all or nothing"-tool.

Twitbin - Twitter Sidebar for Firefox

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I liked this, but actually... I'm confused. Always having this addon active my toolbar is dis-organized. Searchbar disappears, just Twitbin Button is visible. Strange behaviour, so right now I deactivated this addon. Still three stars because it was useful in the past, and maybe it's just a problem with my installation?! Can't verify yet.

HootBar

Don't work any more Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Was a real good tool, and I was happy finding it. But now with newer Firefox versions You cannot add new Twitter accounts to Hootbar. That's REAL bad! How should I work now after a re-installation? It's seems that already existing accounts still work, but NO new ones :-(

GlodaQuilla search indexing enhancements

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great - real useful tool to eliminate that nasty indexing from junk and temporary folders! Should be a core feature! Indexing hundreds of mails each day in my spam folders is real nasty - so thanks for this.
