Text Formatting Toolbar - Updated By _Dave_

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Hi,

Can you disable this extension and get in contact with me? I don't remember ever getting an email from you. If I had, I would have responded. There are reasons I have not updated this extension for awhile, but if you like I can give you access and we can update the extension together.

Hi,

For those having problems with getting this working with the newer versions of Thunderbird and Firefox I would like to point out there is another extension biased of this one which is actively being developed by me. See https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/2831

I only take the liberty of posting this review because one of the original developers emailed be recently with this to say (only part of a longer email):

"I've heard from others that another extension existed. Sure enough, I saw it did. Thank you very, very much for taking over this concept. It was needed desperately when Mook and I worked on it. And it's still needed now. What you've done is wonderful. Great work!"

Tree Style Tab

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great extension, it has been a boon ever since someone recommended it to me.

One of my favorite features is they way it opens new tabs under the page I open it from. It allows me to track how I got to a page, and keeps related pages grouped. Really good when I start opening 20+ pages at a time.

It takes up quite a bit of horizontal space, but since I have a rather large screen that does not bother me personally right now. Might be more of a problem when I start using my laptop regularly again.

I also like the well done control panel, with plenty to change. It certainly was not an after thought, which it feels like in some other extensions I have used.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.2010020502). 

HistoryInTab

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This add-on would make a lot of sense (why can't we do this by default) if it worked.

Looks like the places window is one that really can't be opened in a tab and expects it own window. Having a play with this extension, drag and drop will not work, when I click on a book mark it opens the page, but I can't click the back button to return to the places window.

And the real let down for the extension is he had a number of options, but no options window to access them by. I take two stars off for this.

CuteButtons - Crystal SVG

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I like the idea of this extension. On Linux some buttons already have icons - so for consistency I though this looked like a cute idea.

Unfortunately it seams to conflict with any button that had a icon already - nothing gets shown. Which destroys the effect.

Otherwise well done :)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.2).
