PriceBlink - Automatic Price Comparison & Coupons

Uses link hijacking to submit your purchase via the company's referral links Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The way this company makes money is: Every time you click a link to buy a product recommended by the plugin, the plugin re-writes the link so it includes a referral code for the company that provides the plug-in. This violates the terms of service of most affiliate programs (Amazon in particular):

“You will not cloak, hide, spoof, or otherwise obscure the URL of your site containing Special Links (including by use of a redirecting page) such that we cannot reasonably determine the site from which a customer clicks through such Special Link to the Amazon Site.”

I have reported them to Amazon and I encourage you to do the same.

I'm also pretty sure they're paying people to write reviews for their add-on, because of the suspicious nature of many of the reviews: Many of the reviewers have only one review (for this add-on) and they are cookie cutter reviews.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.1). 

Copy Folder

Doesn't work because of a bug in Thunderbird Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This addon doesn't work because there is a bug in Thunderbird where if there is any error message from the IMAP server, Thunderbird stops processing further IMAP commands but does not properly alert the user or addon.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3).
