For keeping this addon alive the dev gets my praise. The evolution of the removed Firefox feature is nice. I am not entirely sure how useful the new features will be but as long as it doesn't over-complicate things or make the code harder to maintain it is OK.
Already the improvement I notice is it is much easier than before to move tabs around and organise them. Kudos!
Please keep this addon as simple as possible.

No sign of the addon appeared in the browser after installation and restart except for the listing in about:addons. It should probably be marked as incompatible with the latest version of Firefox.
Works great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
...in Ubuntu 14.04 and Thunderbird 31. No start up problems or delays. Events immediately sychronized after installing the addon and restarting Thunderbird.

Great idea, but causing Firefox to freeze Rated 3 out of 5 stars
It was causing Firefox to freeze every 10 seconds for 10 seconds whenever I had a tab open to YouTube or a website with YouTube embedded videos. I disabled each addon individually and determined it was this addon causing the freezing.
Other than that, it is a good idea for an addon and, as a web developer, very useful to know the licenses on content. But the freezing of Firefox needs to be fixed before I will enable it again.

Thanks so much for creating this. It's people like you that keep me a part of the Firefox/Mozilla community.
If the Mozilla devs mess up (I'm not saying they did or didn't in this case) then there will always be an addon developer to fix things.
This addon does that job perfectly. Please do add the other tab bar option. Thanks.
Keeps me on track and focused with work Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Simpleology is a suite of on-line tools and training concepts that are designed to help you simplify your life and become more productive.
This addon, as a part of the entire suite of Simpleology productivity tools, is an essential part of my day. Being able to add important websites and any ideas that come to mind into the "dreamcatcher" is an important thing to help me stay on track with my work. I get easily distracted by reading articles on the web and often have to read reference manuals and developer documents online for work. This addon gives me somewhere to put links to look at later and ideas for tasks that come to mind.
The addon won't be of use to you without the whole Simpleology philosophy and package and it interfaces with their system but If you haven't heard of Simpleology or tried it before the addon description gives you a good idea of what it is and you can become a member for free. I recommend giving it a try. I am sure you will happily become a life-long "Simpleologist"! :)
Does what it says Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Very happy with it, especially since FolderPane Tools doesn't seem to be working for me any more in TB 3.0.4.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.4).
One star reviews because you have no patience suck Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I don't often review addons but lightning is probably one of the best and my most used addon for Thunderbird.
If you are reviewing and rating Lightning for use with Thunderbird 3 you are reviewing a product that doesn't exist yet. Please stop posting the one-star reviews. This review page is for the *latest release* of Lightning that works for Thunderbird 2 builds.
Please don't review this excellent work one star and demotivate the excellent developers who give their time freely to this project.
(TB 3 has only *just* come out. Software releases don't always coincide... especially in the open source world which depend on donations and freely-given man-power resources. If you follow the release notes and version numbering (as you should) you will see that Lightning 0.9 is only compatible up to TB 2. DO NOT install TB 3 if you want to use Lightning until Lightning release for this version is ready (or try the test release of Lightning given by other reviewers below -- if you do this, back up your calendars regularly and be prepared for possible problems). Please have the patience to wait for the next release of Lightning before submitting reviews for that version.)
P.S. If you donated to the Lightning project, instead of just complaining, it might be ready earlier.
Brilliant but missing something important Rated 4 out of 5 stars
A brilliant extension.
My only criticism is that when you capture a page links pointing to anchors on the same page should be made relative to point to the captured page rather than the original source online. At the moment tables of contents on captured pages don't work as intended because they point to the original source.
