SmtpSwitch

Not working anymore Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This add-on used to be very nice and useful, however it stopped working recently (now with Thunderbird 17.0 on Linux Ubuntu 12.10 64bits). Now whatever SMTP you choose it will always send emails with the default server for the account.

Exif Viewer

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Do use plieaze not rendering automatic from Google in stretching.

Seriously, did you think Google could translate your extension ??!? The French locale doesn't make more sense than the first sentence above. It is full of contextual errors, nonsense, typos, misspelled words... really, please remove the automatic translations until you can find a human translator.

Organize Search Engines

Good, but a few things could be improved Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This addon is extremely useful. It really allows organizing the search bar with folders and separators, which is increadibly useful when you have a lot of them. You also get a valuable window to edit the engines, which avoids you to edit the XML files directly. However, there is still many usability issues:
* you cannot play with Firefox profile "searchplugins" directory. New files you put there are ignored and if you remove one of them you'll get ugly error messages.
* you cannot place an engine in several folders. For example, if you have a folder "web search" for all general search engines, and another one "google" for all google search engines, you have to choose where to put your google general search engine, you cannot put it in both. You cannot decide to put it in the root dir as well–or you need to have it only there and in no subfolder.
* You cannot define icons on the folders.
In summary, this extension would certainly deserve a

International Sideboard

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

It is difficult to find the character among all the codepages. One has to know in which block it is, and it is very hard to figure out for beginners.
The buttons are not really self-explaining. One has to hover them to know what they do. It makes it (beginner-)user-unfriendly. The search by letter is extremely useful, but I think it is not sufficient. A feature allowing to save a choice of characters would be useful.
Also, the codepage names should be i18zed.
Additionally, this extension hangs when displaying large codepages (on Linux at least).
It is still very experimental, that is, a lot of things must be improved before it can be used by the public at large. Nonetheless, I believe it can already be useful for some people.

Link Pad

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I didn't test it because from the description, I don't know what it is for (just where it comes from, which is among the last things I want to know when installing an add-on)

Feedly - Beyond Google Reader

Superbrowser anyone? Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Hmmm... I would call that a bad "superbrowser" extension. Poor integration in Firefox : no use of live bookmarks, adds a "add to feedly" button in the addressbar rather than re-using the RSS one, and basically the toolbar button is just like a bookmark (a poor one, though, it opens a new tab, no way to re-use the current one like the left/middle click on bookmarks). There is no way to add a RSS in feedly when you view it.

Maybe the service is good, but I'm really not sure the extension is.

Hide Favicons

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Why not available for Linux? I thought add-ons were cross-platform...
