My Reviews

Pinboard IncSearch

Useful and fast (but hidden in tools menu) Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Seems to download all pinboard bookmarks and performs a rather fast search on them. Great !

The only drawback is that is not really integrated into Firefox (e.g. as a sidebar) but that you have to run it from the tools menu (I was struggling a little while before I found that out).

SortPref

No more thread view by default Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Finally a way to set the normal list view as default again.

Clippings

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great! And now you can even specify in which directory the data is stored so it works seamlessly with synchronisation software like Dropbox :-)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.0.1). 

Date Picker/Calendar

Nice, handy, does what it says. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

For date format options, look at http://jamescookie.com/extensions/datepicker.html

Sort Tabs by URL

Great, accessible via Tool Menu now Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Sorting by URL seems to be the most natural way to cope with a huge number of tabs opened. Simple to use (thanks to entry in tools menu).

Phrase Highlighter

Best highlighter so far Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Simple but efficient highlighter, I tried many, this seems to be the best by far. Work boundaries (\b) work fine in regular expressions. Would love to see this on Thunderbird, too.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.8).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Phrase Highlighter

Best highlighter so far Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Probably the best (but still simple) highlighter around.Regular expressions seem to work fine even though I've got an issue with word boundary (\b).Would love to see this for Thunderbird, too.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.8). 

Color Folders

Great Rated 5 out of 5 stars

There used to be a problem with virtual folders (search folders) but there's where I need the colors most. This seems to be repaired now and it's fantastic for me now.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0). 

CompactHeader

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great! I may have wished to have a bit more options about what to see and maybe to toggle between standard and compact header, but so far it's really improving the experience with Thunderbird on smaller screens... Except that it seems that the compact header defines a minimum width which will make my window (under ubuntu), when maximized, reach over the end of my screen (on a tiny netbook) - or is there some other addon incompatibility??

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.7). 

Thunderbird Conversations

Revolutionises message handling Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great, it really shows the whole thread in an overview and helps me a lot!!

I'm giving it only four stars because some things may still be improved:
- show contact picture
- allow to send the reply later (it's sending immediately if you use fast reply)
- some issues with text size (even though it's okay for me now, I had some issues before on other computers)

That said, let's not forget that it revolutionizes (replaces) the way the messages are shown so some incompatibilities (eg when using an addin to display contact photos) will be inevitable.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.6.3). 

Folder Levels

Great but not for virtual folders Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The idea is great and it makes the whole folder structure much more readable. Alas, it only seems to work for real folders (remote or local), but not for virtual (search) folders.

Display Contact Photo

Perfect Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works fine, uses photos from the address book and from a local folder. Only drawback: When composing an email with yourself in BCC, it will show your picture, too.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.5).
