My Reviews

Address Widget Lines

Conflict with stationery Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This setting doesn't work with the add-on stationery installed.

Speed Dial

Good, but needs improvement Rated 3 out of 5 stars

1. It would be much better with an option to automatically load frequently accessed pages in the dials
2. Could use a more efficient interface for setting the URL in each dial. Right now the only practical way is to have the speed dial in a separate window and drag tabs in the dials. For exemple, you could have a list of the frequently accessed pages when you right click on a dial, or of the recent history, or of the actually opened tabs.
3. It doesn't work in blank new windows
4. Way too many options to customize the look, we get lost.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.6.16.1-signed). 

Mail Summaries

Lack of user control Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very good idea and nice set of features. Unfortunately, this add-on is not customizable yet, so you are stuck with a (too short) preview of latest mails, a list of frequent correspondants, a short list of drafts, disk space used and some other stats. In my case, I only care for an aggregated list of all the mails in the account's different folders, but I cannot make it bigger. It would be fairly simple to make the different panels optionnal, and make the remaining panels use up all the available space. Also, it doesn't include the mails in the subfolders in the summaries, and there is (yet) no option for this.

Shrunked Image Resizer

Needs improvement Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I use this add-on because it is about the only image resizer extension available for thunderbird. However, if often fails to offer to resize the images when importing an image. It also often pops up when we don't want to resize any images. I do not see why image resizing should be "automatic" (triggered when images are imported) instead of just adding an option when we click the image to resize it. Moreover, since it often fails, and because a user can change his mind, it should be possible to resize an image even after it is imported, which doesn't seem to be the case right now.

Download Manager Tweak

Fonts WAY TOO BIG Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This add-on is nice and useful, BUT the fonts used are ridiculously too big, and (to my knowledge) not customizable. Besides, a toolbar button to activate/deactivate the sidebar would be useful.
