Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Follow up on my previous review.
For those of you that have a problem with opening pdf files in TB when this extension is installed, the author's suggestion of creating a boolean variable in about: cofig named "extensions.linkPropertiesPlus.download.forceFakeURIHack" (without the quotes ""), when set to "True", solves the problem.
If the variable is set to "False", when attempting to open a pdf file, both the pdf opening dialogue screen and TB hang will continue to hang as previously reported.
I'm now happy to up the rating to 5 stars, and am very pleased that this extension, unlike the original extension, supports TB.

Much better than the original and works well on FF 17.0.1.
On TB 16.0.2, however, prevents attached pdf files from being opened - crashes TB when an attempt is made to open an attached pdf file.
Can't reproduce on Thunderbird 16.0.2, 17.0.2 + Adobe Reader 10.1.5, 11.0.1.
Are you sure, that Link Properties Plus are cause your crash? Try open the same attached pdf with disabled extension.
Anyway, extension can't crash parent application itself, it just uses some application APIs, so real reason is bugs in Thunderbird or in pdf plugin (I'm not sure, how pdf plugin works in Thunderbird).
Also you can try enable extensions.linkPropertiesPlus.download.forceFakeURIHack preference in Thunderbird's about:config (Tools – Options – Advanced – General – Config Editor…).
And try update Thunderbird to latest 17.0.2 version.
