Google translate for https/http

Fast. Convenient. But doesn't translate whole page. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I installed this add-on because I needed to translate my German online dating site (https://www.meineneueliebe.de/) into English. The protocol is always HTTPS.

The translation is very fast, but unfortunately the "Google translate" add-on only translates the top half of the webpage. Please fix this.

Nimbus Screen Capture - editable screenshots

Best Screenshot Add-on (with only very few minor flaws) Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is easily the best screenshot add-on I've seen. It even works the with newest nightly builds of Firefox.

The only thing I still need is the ability to DELETE an object that I had placed BEFORE placing other objects (e.g. circles, arrows, etc.) - i.e. without having to UNDO all the objects I placed after the one I want to delete.

I agree with others that the default line width of 10 px is way too thick. Better would be 3 px.

It would be nice to be able to change the font size of the texts.

Still. A great Add-on! It's free. It installs and is ready to use without having to restart the browser. Thank you!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.3.2). 

EditEmailSubject

Very useful Add-on, but confusing Options Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This add-on is a great addition to Thunderbird. I wished it were ported into the default builds (see bug 91106).

The only thing I would like improved is the confusing Option for "[x] Only local changes (for IMAP)". It mentions "local" and "IMAP *together*, but the help text mentions "local TB database" and "IMAP compatible" as two SEPARATE and seemingly opposing options. I find that seeming contradiction confusing. A less confusing and more elaborate explanation for novices would be VERY useful. Five stars if this issue were improved.

Anyhow, thanks for this great add-on.

Unified Search

Well done must-have add-on! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Perfect add-on. Restores functionality that was negligently removed from Thunderbird and replaces the poorly executed and diminished default filter and search feature.

Unified Search

Well done must-have add-on! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent add-on! The ability to do a quick-search without extra clicks and wasted vertical space should never have been removed from Thunderbird in the first place.Great job IagoSRL! The Thunderbird development decisions in the past few years have been overwhelmingly disappointing.

Display Window Title

Bug in latest trunk build & Excellent Add-on! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Bug: This add-on makes the Title Bar too tall in the recent trunk/nightly builds[1].

Otherwise this a is badly needed add-on that adds back functionality that should never have been removed from Firefox in the first place!

Feedly - Beyond Google Reader

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Very nice, but too complex and opaque. I prefer the "Sage" feed reader.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.15). 

CompactHeader

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The two-line compact view and iconized buttons should be in the default built. Period.

Thanks for this excellent and badly needed extension!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.1). 

Resizeable Textarea

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Still the best text area re-sizer after all these years!

Too bad it isn't updated to work with Firefox 3.5 and the nightly builds. but there is a way: just unzip the XPI file, edit the install.rdf to change the "maxVersion" to "3.*". :-)

Wizz RSS News Reader

Doesn't work with trunk builds Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Wizz doesn't work with Firefox nightly trunk builds, and seems very late in working with the newest releases. That's a deal breaker for me.

And the feed preview should have font size = 1 em - to allow the user to define the text size he wants to power-read in (Tools / Options / Content / Font).

Provider for Google Calendar

Important Add-on, but... Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This add-on fulfills an import role for anyone who wants to be able to write to their Google Calendar from within Lightning.

Unfortunately, once you're done creating your calendars, and then de-select "check for new calendars", and you then add another Google Calendar you want to write to, there seems no way get the dialog back that upgrades the new calendar for write access.

Perhaps the add-on should not self-activate on Thunderbird load (it's annoying and unintuitive once you calendars are upgraded), but rather either activate when a new Google calendar is created, or when initiated by the user (via add-on Options or a right-click on a Calendar).

Video DownloadHelper

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works with Firefox nightly trunk builds (edit "maxversion")!

Works with MANY porn sites!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.2.2). 

File Title

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This function should have been in Firefox by default years ago!

It's high time that bug is fixed:

Glazoom

context menu always disabled Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The context menu items are always disabled, no matter which web page, where on the page, or what text I select (or not select). The "zoom on element" and "real size" are always grayed-out. :-\

I'd also much rather have large [+]and [-] buttons on the status bar than some hard-to-target dropdown list.
