Provider for Google Calendar

Frustrated by Lack of Support Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I have used this add-on for years and really appreciate its utility and all the work that has gone into it. In recent months, myself (and others, as has been reported elsewhere) have been frustrated by the inability to set a customer reminder for a specific date and time BEFORE the event. When I try, a red pop message appears at the top of the Set Up Reminders screen with the message: "Google Calendar only allows reminders up to 4 weeks before the event starts." As it stands, I can only set a custom reminder for a date and time AFTER the event, which of course makes no sense at all. (GP v1.03, Lightning 3.6b1,TB 34.0 on Win7.)

Before originally posting here in late December, I checked the support forum and found a complaint by another user under the heading "Error creating a personalized reminder for date+time." I added some additional information, including a image displaying the error, but despite a couple of bumps by me and the OP, the post was completely ignored. When I finally posted a comment here two months later, I was told to post on the support forum. Well, I had already done that, but I gave it another bump and ... nearly three months after the original post, still nothing.

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

Thunderbird Conversations

Love this Extension, but ... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Love this extension, but unfortunately it doesn't play with with T-Bird 34. Not a big problem as I can easily drop T-Bird back a version, but I do hope it will be updated.

Searchbar Autosizer

Great, but in need of an update! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This simple, but effective add-on has always been one of my favorites. Unfortunately, it doesn't play well with Firefox 34. When set to resize "on every keypress," the new dropdown box jumps left and right with every keypress. I do hope there will be an update to fix this, although I have read that the original author (Kevin Cox) is no longer maintaining this add-on.

Blur

BLUR is the clear choice for ... Rated 1 out of 5 stars

... people who like overworked products that regularly interfere with normal browsing and who want an overload of mostly unnecessary features that can't be turned off even when you don't want them. John Galt has it absolutely right with his review. This used to be a nice add-on, now I'm uninstalling it.

Distill Web Monitor (formerly AlertBox)

Solid Add-On, Always Improving Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Distill Web Monitor has really improved sharply in the last couple of iterations. The UI, which started out a bit clumsy, is now looking quite polished. One minor nit: in the last release the Schedule slider has gotten wonky again, skipping 2 and 3 hours after 7 hours, so it's no longer possible to set the slider to say, 12 hours. It should move smoothly through 24 hours. Okay, and maybe the upgrade pricing seems rather high ($9 a month for basic? That's more than I pay for Netflix), but I could be wrong; perhaps other users see the value and disagree. Still a Five Star add-on all the way.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.1).

Updated for Firefox 29!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love this add-on, although it has not always been reliable. I am very happy to see this add-on has been updated and is now working with Firefox 29!

Mail Redirect

One of my favorites! But ... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It continues to baffle my why this functionality is not included in Thunderbird (or any email client) by default, as I consider this one of the most powerful and highly useful tools for managing email. Being able to redirect--rather than forward--an email not only eliminates the formatting mess that forwarding sometimes makes, but more importantly enables me to "step out" of the middle of conversations where it is useful and appropriate to do so.

Lightning

Works Great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

One of the few add-ons I can't live without. Works great as always! Looking forward to update for TB 16.0b

AddressBookTab

Great to Have it Back!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've never understood why Thunderbird implemented tabs and then didn't use them for the Address Book or to Compose new messages -- which is why I've always been a fan of this extension. And now, with the update to 1.4.2 (click on "View all versions" until it clears AMO), I've finally got it back after a lengthy absence during the Shredder beta. Well done. Thank you!

Ebay Negs!

Finally! An Update!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This has always been one of my favorite and most useful add-ins, and it's terrific to see that it's been updated to Firefox 4. Thanks!

Readability

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This one has moved near the top of the list of my favorite add-ons. Terrific!
