In a little more detail...

I broke my body on the job, so I'm not able to DO much anymore. Fortunately, my brain still works (when I can get it to boot), so I practice my grammar and punctuation doing stuff like this (please note: the preceding statement is an excellent example of incorrect sentence structure).

So I'm limping, along with my antique (WIN XP) desktop, working the kinks out of the newest Mozilla updates, so that if I ever get it fixed LONG enough, I can just plug in to the "new" machine I have waiting. AS IF...

My Reviews

Memory Restart

LOVE this, but I have a request--untie it from Status Bar, please?? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Using PM 24.2.2, and it works just like it always has! I've only GOT 512mg RAM, so I need, and use this, A LOT! Thank you. I noticed just tonite that there was a pretty new green icon (I've never had an icon before, just numbers); it magically appeared on my toolbar, and lets me put it anywhere--I like that, a lot.

So now that there's a moveable icon, could you please either eliminate the status bar thingy or make it moveable, too? I have had to use an other add on to let me move the "numbers" off my status bar--cuz I want what I want down there and nothing else. I'd rather use the icon, as it takes up less space...Did what I said make sense?
TIA,
Gaia

(Edit to reply to Dev) Thanks so much, and look forward to it!!

Favicon Restorer

Does what it was built to do... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

and does so flawlessly. What more could one want? Wouldn't NEED it if Mozi would quit screwing things up as they go along...EDIT: To Alex M--move to Pale Moon--it's what Fx USED to be, and Moonchild, the Developer, intends to keep it that way! I promise you'll not regret it! http://www.palemoon.org/

And I must mention: What a *class act* for the Dev (jooliaan) to respond in such a magnanimous and helpful manner to ssokolow's critique (below).

Stratiform

Helps make your browser *your* browser! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

For those of us who just MUST customize, this is a wonderful tool! It adds an outline around the loading tab, which matches the tab stack beneath, and the whole thing just pops! Makes what you're doing easy to spot when you have a very busy tab bar or a 'noisy' theme installed.

Just love it. Thanks Devs! Keep up the good work!

Bookmark Favicon Changer

It WAS fantastic! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

But Mozilla killed it with their rapid release schedule. Just makes me sick. Many thanks to DEV for holding on as long as he did. May the Force be with all the rest of you DEVs, as Mozy seems to not care one whit about losing YOU or their loyal users...I've been with them since before their AOL days...

Address Widget Lines

SO simple, so effective... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

that the TB Devs FINALLY caught on--though their default is 3. Way to go, Bozz, and thank you from all of us who have used yours all these years!

P.S. Will it work in Sea Monkey?

Classic Bookmarks Button

Magnificent! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

One hundred million "Thank You" (s)!! I've been chasing this for 24 hours, after recent "upgrade" screwed up everything...

Cleanest Addon Manager

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great work, Dev!

I've gone to a great deal of effort to maximize my screen space, as I still have a 17" CRT (using 8 addons to accomplish the feat), and it always drove me crazy that the default Manager wasted so MUCH space.

What a great, useful extension this is! I know how many addons I'm using/not using at a glance AND now I don't have to scroll at all in Thunderbird,

Restart

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very handy tool, like it very much! Does exactly what it's supposed to do, and very quickly. Thank you!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.0.0.9m). 

DoNotTrackMe: Online Privacy Protection

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

GREAT add-on! Non-intrusive, minimal learning curve, easy on resources, set-it-and-forget-it, but lets you share when you want to. Responsive customer support.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2.8.307). 

Priveazy Lockdown

This is an amazing piece of work! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The Dev has gone to astonishing lengths to protect our privacy! This is a MUST HAVE for newbies, the paranoid, or those just don't want ourselves splattered all over cyberspace.

Send and File

Really. This is a GREAT idea--and now it WORKS Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I couldn't edit my above review, so here's the update: the author & I exchanged a couple of emails (he got with me very promptly), and it works beautifully now. This is an incredibly handy Extension, and saves me LOTS of time scrolling to & fro to file my mails. Just exactly what I was looking for! Big THANKS to Paulo for saving me frustration with my OCD!

Sun Cult

Absolutely Beautiful! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

All cultures have myths around the sun & moon, and here in my neck of the woods, at the highest point of the New Moon, one "shakes their money at the moon" to bring good fortune--now I know *exactly* what time to do it! Will let you know if it helps! ;~)I LOVE this add-on! I'd give it 10 stars (and maybe a New Moon, if I could ;~) It's pretty, it's practical, and very valuable to me. I used to keep up with this info using various websites, but now, it just sits right there in my mailbox! Is there a version for Firefox? Works with TB 11.0.1--now they're asking me to update, and oh, how I hate to--all my add-ons WORK right now...===============================================Addendum: Works with TB 12 AND FX 12!! Outstanding!
+++++NEW Addendum: STILL works with V24 of Fx, Tb, and most important, Pale Moon (where those of us EXTREMELY FRUSTRATED with Fx stunts have moved...till Mozy code completely ruins it, too...)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.20120301). 

RealPrevNextButtons

FireballMonkey's Update Link/Updated ;~) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

THANKS FireballMonkey for *your* frustration and sparing the rest of us! Great news that it will soon (finally) be built-in, as it should have been all along!https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/rpnb-new/?src=cb-dl-usersWhy on earth does mozilla.org leave references to the obsolete (that we have to fix ourselves) when someone has generously shared *their* fixes? ~just sayin'~
If you're up to it, I concur with kiki78 and Paddy Landau's second suggestion--it would be helpful if we could SEE where we are...

SmilieInserter Plus

I'm a HAPPY Camper! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Makes my emails FUN! My writing style can be candid and fastidious, and this way I can really express what I'm trying to say. And the author of this enjoyable little ditty is incredibly responsive to comments and suggestions, and is more than happy to help. Great, fun add-on, and I hope this author continues to develop others. He's done a mighty fine job on this one!

RealPrevNextButtons for new Thunderbird versions

The REAL deal! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

At last--something that's been needed since forever. And it really works. Great add-on!

Saved Password Editor

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works perfectly. Does exactly what it says it does, and helped me clean up quite a mess in my passwords.
Great add-on!

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

Quote Colors

Easy 'do it yourself' for Tbird 10x Rated 4 out of 5 stars

A star off because I HAD to do it myself...
In config editor find the line: extensions.minCompatibleAppVersion, and change the value to 0.3.

Worked for me immediately! Be nice if the author would update this really cool add-on.

Forecastfox Weather

So far, WAY cool! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Finally! Something to fill all that empty space on the toolbar! I just set it up; LOVE that it's instantly customizable--you can play with the buttons, and it shows up immediately! No click, just hover to see what you want. I haven't fully tested it yet, but so far, it's just about perfect.

I would like the ability to zoom the radar a few hundred miles closer, though. I live in a tiny little flyspeck town on the border of TX/OK, and I'd like to see what's happening just a few miles away rather than 4 states. But that's just me ;-)

All in all, fantastic job!

Manually sort folders

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I LOVE this extension. It does exactly what's needed, no more, no less, and does so perfectly. I would, however, like to see a toolbar button created so I don't have to wade through menus to re-adjust. But it is awesome, and just exactly what I wanted. Thank you!
