My Reviews

Tools > Options… for Linux

Account Settings still in Edit menu Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It's really annoying to see Edit>Preferences in all the apps. The Edit menu should be about editing the displayed content, not about Settings and stuff.

It would be great if the Account Settings in Thunderbird were in the Options menu as well.

Lightning

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Great add-on, but every time Thunderbird is updated, Lightning doesn't work anymore... You should either integrate it into TB or allow it to be installed on all versions. I don't think that the changes to TB are that big from one version to another that Lightning requires a rebuild...

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.9). 

ThunderBrowse

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

While Thunderbird's design evolves, Thunderbrowse still has the same design it had 2 years ago. It does not fit anymore in Thunderbird. I prefer to give up its functionality than to see something very ugly every time I open my mail.

Compose for Thunderbird

needs better UI Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I generally like the idea, however I think it needs some heavy UI polishing.
The to, cc and bcc fields are to large. I would be nice if they had the same size as the subject field (I know it's hard to do that because of the way the emails are styled, which I like, but they're definitely too big). They look great on large screens as they are now, but most of the users don't have large screens. Also the form field should have the same styling as the other fields. Since cc and bcc are not used all the time, it would be great if they were hidden at the beginning, and enabled with two buttons 'add cc' and 'add bcc' like in gmail.
The three buttons (save, send, discard) look really odd alone on one line... maybe you could move them on top? I also don't like the buttons in the attachment pane, and I really like the way the attachment pane looks by default in thunderbird.
What disturbs me the most is the use of the MCE. There are too many buttons on too many lines. Why on Earth would I need to embed flash or forms in an email? The MCE should be only on one line only. You could include what commands are available in the extension options (I personally like the Source button, but I don't think that there are many who would use it).

Chromin Frame

nice! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

i like the extension, i use it in ubuntu, where chromium has an ugly titlebar. however, it has a few bugs. sometimes the tabbar does not resize correctly and although the list all tabs button is not near the window controls, the tabbar gets filled and adds the scroll buttons.
there's also a problem with maximized windows. i keep firefox maximized all the time. when i restart it, the window has the wrong size. the status bar is somewhere under the taskbar

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.8). 

NASA Night Launch

nice Rated 4 out of 5 stars

i like this theme but there are a few things that require to be adjusted:
1. it's too dark and there is no contrast between background and input boxes
2. the background color of the address bar when browsing secure pages is too light. it should be dark gray or so. the same for the drop-down list from google toolbar
3. when loaded in the sidebar, downloads, add-ons, and page info don't display properly (i used all-in-one sidebar)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.20070617).
