Quicktext

Alternative Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I was worried when reading about this add-on no longer working, so looked for an alternative.

This seems to do what I need and is compatible with the latest Thunderbird:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/thunderbird/addon/clippings/

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.11.5). 

Fast Dial

Thankfully I found v2.11 again Rated 1 out of 5 stars

How relieved was I to find v2.11 on another site, so that I could go back!

v2.15 was a total disaster, as someone else has mentioned, especially for existing users, it is extremely annoying to find bookmarks added without permission!! The only way I could forgive this would be on a totally fresh install of Fast Dial, and then it would still knock a point off for rating

v2.16 still adds a search bar that I don't want or need and I cannot make it open Fast Dial on a blank page.

I have reverted back to v2.11 and disabled update check for this Add-on. IMHO the developer(s) should also roll back to v2.11 and work out how they could so misjudge what users want, otherwise the rating will continue to plummet while people come here to write about their annoyance.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.16). 

Tidy Browser Button

Resize from right too? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is one of my favourite add-ons, even though it's so simple :D

So, 2 things:
1) I usually have my browser over to the right of the screen, so it would be very useful to be able to choose in prefs whether the window resizes from left (as now) or right (i.e. move the left border)
2) Is a Fx 3 compatible version to be released soon I'm currently on b5 but will be onto RC1 asap.
Thanks.
