My Reviews

Menu Wizard

enhancement: include compose pane menus Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I keep searching for the DELETE button on email - would LOVE to have it on the LEFT where I would find it most accessible. So it would be great if Menu wizard included the compose pane menus!

Otherwise, Menu Wizard is beyond what I need (or I am behind what it can do!).

Color Folders

Has color folders been abandoned? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I see in the .js file a 2011-2013 copyright and only v1.0 and 1.1 no update dates in comments.

I've donated at least $60 which I realize is undoubtedly paltry, but I HOPED to encourage a new look at the add-on.

Color Folders

error from Error Console TB 52.2 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Color Folders

Enhancement request after a fix Rated 4 out of 5 stars

OK I LOVE the extension! And find it VERY helpful - if ONLY the folder colors would PERSIST, but every update of Thunderbird wipes out all my color assignments. If there is anything I can do to save and reload them, PLEASE let me know!

The enhancement request is to replace the color choice list WITH the expanded color grid - AND to actually apply those colors TO the folders! I can't see where it works fully.

Color Folders

TB 52.2 loaded and wiped-out ALL folder colors! Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Later versions of Thunderbird have been wiping-out all color assignments. I have gone through and re-colored my folders over a half dozen times so far and with perhaps 200 folders this isn't trivial.

I donated once and am willing to donate again - I realize it isn't nearly enough to pay for development time - I'm not rich! But I can hope this problem will be resolved.

Color Folders

Error Console? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

com.fisheater.colorFolders.onPopupShowing chrome://colorfolders/content/colorfolders.js:150:5

I don't especially want to go into this on TB/EB 54.x because they BOTH WIPE OUT folder color settings!

When I try to use the color folders color palette, it will not apply most of the colors presented.

Color Folders

Error Console? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm running TB 52.1.1 under macOS 10.12.6

The full range of colors from the color folders palette is not applied when selected.

Don't know if the following is any help:

ReferenceError: colorfolders is not defined [Learn More]
TypeError: this.chromeUtilsWindow.openUILinkIn is not a function[Learn More] hudservice.js:425:5

When I enter colorfolders in the filter, I get the following:

colorfolders
ReferenceError: colorfolders is not defined [Learn More]

When I click [Learn More], it tries to open an application - but doesn't know what application to use!

I really don't WANT to attempt this with TB /EB 54 because they both WIPE OUT my tab color settings!!

Oh, one request (if possible) - color the NAME of the folder...

Color Folders

DO need an update Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thunderbird/Earlybird 54 seem to WIPE OUT color settings!

But I LOVE this as much as I love Colorful Tabs for Firefox!

ColorfulTabs

ONE thing lacking Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I LOVE and depend on ColorfulTabs, BUT - I keep LOSING my tab colors with new versions of Thunderbird or Earlybird! I gave up on Earlybird, thinking it was primarily at fault and then ran into the same problem with the latest update of Thunderbird 54.0b1

So the ONE think I would like to see is "save/restore configuration"

One other issue is that the "additional colors" do NOT appear to apply AS they are displayed. Is Thunderbird somehow not amenable to the expanded color attributes??

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (31.1.6). 

Word Count Tool

Thunderbird is a COMPOSITION tool and needs to be full-featured Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This would be a GREAT add-on if it was available for Thunderbird! And Thunderbird needs to be competitive with Outlook when it comes to COMPOSITION. A link with LibreOffice might be wise, that way, WRITING tools could be available from a source where they are most logically developed!

Menu Wizard

Outstanding Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I don't know how this can be improved.
Certainly on of the best, most useful and produtive extensions available!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.04). 

Copy Sent to Current

Indispensible Rated 5 out of 5 stars

With all my folders, especially for personal contacts, I would find it very difficult to do WITHOUT this extension!

However, another extension would be EQUALLY helpful:

When pointed at (or when "in") a folder, "Write" would fill the "To" automatically, based on the Message Filter pointing to the folder!

Folder Filters Button

Timesaver Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a BIG timesaver for me - VERY glad to see it working again in Tbird 42.0

Tab Mix Plus

Not working in Firefox 42.0b1 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Tab Mix Plus is my most important extension. It's ONE reason (of several) why I do not use Safari on my iMac. However, when FF updated (yes, I'm on the Beta channel) to 42.0b1 it appears Tab Mix Plus does not work AT ALL!! Ugh! I don't blame the developers - I blame Mozilla!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.1.9).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Message Filters Button

Would LOVE to have it Rated 4 out of 5 stars

BUT - it's incompatible with Thunderbird 40
Four stars for what it WOULD do for me could I install it! :-)
Now, if charging a fee or even accepting a voluntary 'fee' would help - why not do it??

Prevent Delete

Doesn't permit setting a tag to prevent deletion Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Using Thunderbird 38.0 under OS X 10.10.3 Yosemite the add-on does not permit setting any tag to PREVENT deletion. It also appears it does not work with ANY tag BUT "Important"

mms Auto Correct

Can't update the corrections list Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Since this is only a LIST replacement, it isn't a true autocorrect.
I'm using this with TB 31.6 on an iMac running Yosemite, and it won't let me UPDATE the correction list. All the buttons remain greyed-out.

I suspect a full autocorrect function such as found ON the Mac for Mail and Safari could not be written as an XPI file.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.3). 

Character Palette

Great idea - needs work Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I would like to support this, but I don't see how to input the characters for a custom palette. I need the degrees symbol, for example, and see it in NONE of the existing palettes. And I would like to be able to DELETE some of the supplied palettes with the option to RESTORE the defaults.

It would HELP if the palettes were NAMED (add a column to the selection drop-down). For example "Symbols"

TitleCase For Thunderbird

Outstanding Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Some of the best features are among the simplest. I may not use this frequently, but when I need it, I KNOW it will be GREAT!

THANKS MUCH!
