Mailbox Alert

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Awesome... "execute a command" is exactly what Thunderbird was missing! This is the perfect fix for getting Growl to work with Thunderbird on OS X Lion as well... see this post:
http://gluap.wordpress.com/2011/11/10/growl-1-3-and-thunderbird/

SUGGESTIONS:
(1) The default sound and message should be ENABLED by default immediately after install. If I just installed a new extension and activated it, I expect it to work right away, and not have to go hunting to try and figure out how to turn it on and make it work. At first I thought the extension was broken because it did not do anything (and there was no Preferences button: see #2 below).
(2) You should add a Preferences button on the Extension Add-On Manager page so it's easier to find the settings when you first install it... took me a little bit to figure out how to set it up. I at first assumed there were no Settings to change because it did not have a Preferences button (and thought that it did not work, which goes back to suggestion #1 above).

Last Tab Close Button

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This is great idea except it does not work with NewTabURL 2 ... instead of closing browser, it keeps opening up homepage again!

New Tab Homepage

Great except focus/cursor is in address bar Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Great plugin, but there should be an option to decide whether or not you want the address bar to be the focus or not when new tab is opened.

Here is copy of review from Teiji25 with a link to a fix:

For everyone who's having problem with the cursor focusing on the address bar, here's a hack to make it focus on the Google's search field: http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/questions/791190#answer-150151
To the developer, please implement this fix into your addon. Thanks.

Unified Search

Much better! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Much better than the TB 3.1 implementation
Bascally it puts the Quick Filter bar functionality up on the Mail Toolbar so it is always accessible without having to open it up or without it taking up more vertical screen space.

Lightning

Yes, Lightning IS available for TB3 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

YES you can get Lightning for TB3 and you should not lose any calendar information. I upgraded to TB3, and I did notice the big WARNING that says Lightning Plug-In is not compatible with TB3, so I backed up my calendar data before I did the upgrade (File-> Export-> iCalendar *.ics). I then downloaded the Lightning.xpi from the link below and installed and all my data was back (without having to import the backup).

Send Later (old)

Works great! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works great for me with TB 2.0.0.14.

It saves your message as a Draft, and then you tell it when you want it to by sent, and away it goes right on time!!!

PlainOldFavorites

Thanks! Great and easy! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This add-on has made my life sooooo much easier. I am always switching between Firefox and IE (for many different reasons), and I had some links in one browser and different links in the other browser... I can now add links as I please in either browser, and they show up in the other one!

THanks again!!!
