Forecastfox Weather

Forecastfox on FF20.0.1 - blocked by "disconnect" add-ons Rated 3 out of 5 stars

A really great add-on ... but only when you do NOT use these "disconnect" add-ons (fb, google+, twitter). They do block Forecastfox: you won't be able to enter new locations and to change them!
Dear development team, there waits a problem for your smart solution ;-)

Solution: disable "disconnect"s, add your forecastfox locations, enable "disconnect"s, and you can still change locations

v2.0.1 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

(DE) gute Idee, unpraktische Platzierung:
besser wäre der Button oben platziert, da ab FF9/10 die Toolbar am unteren Fensterrand von den meisten Usern ausgeblendet wird. Add-on Toolbar muss deswegen immer wieder an/aus geschaltet werden.

(EN) good idea, unpractical placement:
button should better be placed above add-on list od in regular toolbar. Most user will hide the add-on toolbar at the lower window border to get more space for display. So, add-on toolbar must be switched on/off.

Reply to developer's reply/developer's hint (thanks!):
(DE) meine Lösung: Verschieben des Buttons in die Menüleiste klappt! Alternativ auch neben die Buttons Open-Close-Tab neben der Tableiste.

(EN) my solution: moving button to right end of menu bar! Or, button can be placed beside the open/close tab buttons.

Hi *,
tried this add-on with Thunderbird 8.0 and found: while first synchronize all my Google contacts have been TRIPLED: from 440 to 1320 contacts, and the default groups like coworkers etc. have been doubled.
Next step was uninstall!

Sorry, good idea but seems to need more development.

Good luck for that, KH

View Headers Toggle Button

Ctrl-U as replacement for "ViewHeaders" Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Answer (fdservices & others):
an update to TB3.0 would be nice.
By pushing only ctrl-u you can get the message source ... and at the beginning you will see the complete message header!

By the way: an additional advantage is that the message remains UNREAD. That's useful for spam & junk.

Dictionary Switcher for Thunderbird

speed up again your Thunderbird Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Hi Stef,

an easy trick:
Go to Tools ->Options ->Tab ->Button Config-Editor and, search for extensions.dictionary-switcher.autodetect and set it to FALSE.

After my installation this option was set to TRUE. This forces the add-on to check continously, whether the dictionary language should be switched automatically ... and this cuts the performance!

By setting that option to FALSE the problem disapears.

Good luck!
