My Reviews

Silvermel

Very nice! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Looks really nice on Windows 10.

Try it with the following:

Theme Font & Size Changer extension using "Adobe Gothic Std B" 14.

Disable HTML5 Fullscreen Alert

does not work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

does not work

Quicktext

Uncluttered and useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Does the job with a simple, uncluttered and useful interface.

Would like to see the quick text buttons on the same line as the formatting buttons, as it currently leaves a lot of blank space.

The Addon Bar (Restored)

Delightfully simple Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works very well is restores an essential component to Firefox. I even moved the search window to the bottom and it makes things much easier.

Unfortunately, the FF developers are just looking for things to change, it seems.

I would donate, but I don't use PayPal.

It's also easy to remove the close button...it can be done from within Customize (just drag the close button away from the Addon Bar.)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.2.1-signed). 

Auto focus URL bar

Very nice Rated 5 out of 5 stars

One of my addons has disabled URL focus on a new tab. This happily restores my workflow ... and sanity!

ViewMarks

Very, very nice indeed Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love FF, but have struggled to manage my bookmarks (and folders) in a sane and easy manner.

ViewMarks comes to the rescue, and is a HUGE breath of fresh air and is a wonderfully intuitive way to manage bookmarks.

There are many thoughtful touches, such as the "suggested folder" (which works rather well most of the time), and the "create folder" icon shows up in all the right places. I think the developer has thought of just about everything.

The integration with FF is nearly perfect, making the ViewMarks feel just like a native part of the browser!

Many thanks to the developer for creating this delightful add-on!

Bugs (FF 38.0.5)
1) Setting the "visit bookmarks in background to fetch thumbnails" throws an error:

ReferenceError: ViewMarksUpdate is not defined
ViewMarksUtil.openConfigDialog@chrome://viewmarks/content/util.js:170:5
onclick@about:viewmarks?folder=bookmarks:1:1

Suggestions
1) Add the ability to search for a folder when bookmarking.
2) Be able to resize the folder list (horizontally and vertically) to more easily find a folder
3) Offer some sort of "detail" view (as seen in Windows Explorer, for example.)
4) Be able to drop a bookmark (or a folder) onto a folder.

SimpleSort Bookmarks

So far, so good Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works really well so far! Seems more stable than other similar add-ons.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.1.1-signed). 

AddressBookTab

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works very well and gets the job done. Vital addition to Thunderbird!

Simple Week View

Would be nice, if it worked Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Wonderful idea, but sadly, MANY BUGS.

When "previous weeks to show" (in Lightning options) is set to 1 week, the "simple week" calendar for this week is a week off, showing last week's calendar! When "previous weeks to show" is set to 2 weeks, the "simple week" calendar for THIS week is 2 weeks old. Also, "previous week/next week" in the right-click menu have no text.

And one more thing ... when "Week starts on Sunday" is set in options, the Sunday that is showing on the weekend days is actually LAST Sunday! For example, this week's calendar shows the days in the following order: March 2, 3 ,4, 5, 6, 1.

Hope the developer can fix these issues soon...it would be very nice otherwise. I do remember this layout from Organizer, which I used for many years.

I see no "support" page so I have to report this here.

UPDATE: I've removed the addon for now. Awaiting a fixed version to try out.

Add Bookmark Here ²

Very nice, but need folder search when edting Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Please add the ability to search for a folder when editing a bookmark.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (31.0.20150113.1-signed). 

Search as list

Love it, love it, love it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The default TB mail search is dreadful, and leaving me cursing every time I used it. I just wanted to see the results as a list, period, without any other nonsense.

Thank you for making this happen!!!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1a). 

Phoenity Shredder

Makes a boring task a bit easier Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Fun, colorful and very nice to look at. The designer has shown great attention to detail. Makes the boring task of maintaining mail a little nicer!!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.5.13). 

Auto-Sort Bookmarks

Very useful! Need option to ignore case when sorting. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Please add an option to ignore case when sorting.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.5.1-signed). 

Today's messages

Need it to search *all* folders Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I have many rules that file incoming messages to folders. Therefore, I need a way to see today's messages in all folders.

XPath Checker

Good, but... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It's good, however, I wish it were able to update the xpath when I select a new node.

External Application Buttons 2

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Work great for setting up links and assigning custom icons!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.11.1-signed). 

Tile Tabs

Brilliant Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Downloaded this and had an immediate use for it. Within 90 seconds had the basics down and was tiling like a pro! Operates just like it's a native part of the browser

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (10.1.1-signed). 

Close Button

Perfect complement to Vertical Tabs! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I open a lot of tabs. This gives me a nice way to review and close one at a time. I keep it on the right in the bookmarks bar.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.0.1-signed). 

Page Title in URL Bar

Works well Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works well and makes sense since seeing the URL is usually not needed. Also my menu (and title bar) are hidden.

The background color is a little dark. Would be great to have the choice of setting the background color.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.2.1-signed). 

New Tab Toolbar Button Updated Version

Delightful. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Does exactly what I need, without any other nonsense. Open a new tab!
