Schade... Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Die Idee ist gut, ein Feature, wie es standardmäßig in Apple Mail integriert ist, in Thunderbird zu implementieren. Schade ist jedoch dei Umsetzung, da das Addon nicht die Fotos aus bereits gespeicherten Kontakten nutzt, sondern ein eigenes Adreßbuch anlegen will.

So macht das aber keinen Sinn... :(

Hide senders without photo Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Nice but it would be nicer if it hide photo for senders without photo

Works with Thunderbird 24.1.0, and does the job.

Small and lightweighted, but it works with Tb 24.0.1. Fine!

Very nice add-on that makes reading and writing email a more personal experience.

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Great.
Only missing thing: I don't want to see a "Photo Placeholder" (Thunderbird's Standard Gravatar), if there's no real contact photo available. Please, just display nothing in that case (as if that Add-On would be installed).

Love it! I set the photo height to 16ch, displaying on the right and it is just ideal. It doesn't steal your contacts or do anything to make you worry. Very nice.

The one change I would like to see would be the option to use Gravatar (non case sensitive) but without having a *default* icon for when one isn't found as I much prefer the simplicity of Thunderbird's default profile icons.

Gravatar needs the email address to be lowercased Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Reposting as the title is not seen publically and then my former review did not make much sense.

Gravatar needs the email address to be lowercased before making the MD5 hash.
From my testing (and introspection of the code) it seems that this is not done.

Otherwise a nice addon :)

Gravatar only supports lowercase email addresses Rated 4 out of 5 stars

So the email address should be lowercased before the MD5 hash is calculated.
It seems from my testing that you don't do this lowercasing of email.
Otherwise, a nice addon :)

This plugin looks really good. Unfortunately it behaves strangely on my computer. When I enable Contact photo, after a while, Thunderbird keeps searching and cannot load my emails anymore. When I disable this plugin, everything works back again.
For info, I am using TB3 with an IMAP account.

Very nice addon and actually no problem with tb3.

some suggestions:
* rounded borders for the photos? e.g. with -moz-border-radius?
* even if you youse gravatar for contacts without photo -> let me use my own pic if someone hasn't one on gravatar too

but all in all - great :-D

Great Start! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great start! Thanks for the effort on a much missed feature from AddressBookPix after upgrading to TB3. Two suggestions:

1. display contact pic in compose window so you can see who you are sending an email to.

2. Make it work a little better with CompactHeader...currently forces picture and the CompactHeader expand arrow to extreme right of header regardless of settings in ContactPhoto. PLUS it would be awesome to have a small picture even in the compact header view...especially when working on netbooks with limited vertical view pane space.

works for me TB3.0 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

even the gravatar thing works (i made an account for my own email address and uploaded a photo), takes a few seconds, but once it's downloaded, seems to be instant. nice!

and i can open the contact card for the sender if they're in my address book, too. cool add-on. my new favourite :)

seems to work fine for me in TB3.0. when i double click on the image in the message header, the Contact Card for the sender opens in a dialog box.

I turned off the gravatar in the options, since I don't know anyone using gravatars (hadn't even heard of it before this add on), but it worked even before I did that anyway.

Fabulous little add-on as far as I can tell!

Doesn't seem to work at all. If I click on the gravatar, an address book entry opens up and it shows the correct person, but no picture (when in fact in addressbook it does), and it can't be edited anyway.
MacOS 10.5.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.5). 

Re: Doesn't seem to work at all

This add-on, like the header, uses the first contact it can find with the sender's e-mail address. I don't have any control over which contact is found first.

You can either attempt to remove duplicates (check out the Duplicate Contact Manager 2 add-on) or add photos to the duplicate contacts.

If you click on the gravatar to edit the person's picture you will probably have to re-select the message to see the new photo.

If it still doesn't seem to be working, please use the contact info (forum or e-mail) in the support section so I can find and fix the problem.

I get an "add-ons not found" message whe trying to install your extension.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.3). 

Re: Add-on not found

I'm getting the same error and I don't think I can do anything about it other than upload a new version.

Please try again soon once it says the version is 0.1.5 or higher.

Re: works

Would you be able to send me an e-mail with more details on what isn't working correctly? My e-mail address is in the Support section of the add-on page.

I have no control over the order in which address books are searched. This add-on uses the first contact found with the sender's e-mail address which is the same contact listed under "from". Try the Duplicate Contact Manager add-on to remove duplicates.

There aren't really any restrictions on photos; as long as you can see the photo in the address book window it should work (assuming that is the only contact with that e-mail address). If you try to use a huge photo (several MBs) from the web then it isn't always saved correctly.
