Catastrophic google calendar failure Rated 2 out of 5 stars
I know this is free and I appreciate the ingenuity and hard work that goes into something like this, but I am so acutely irritated and angry that I'm looking for alternatives to Thunderbird. Everything was working fine for months, years even. I had TB 4 and an old version of Lightning on my Mom's machine. I had her set up with gmail and everything has worked flawlessly for years. All of a sudden, 4 days ago, my Mom was changing an appt date in the calendar. TB crashed. When I started it up again, I had to start in safe mode because it wouldn't start. It only showed up as a process, but it was invisible on the monitor. After disabling all extensions and add-ons, the app ran. When I enabled the extensions and add-ons, the app wouldn't run. I uninstalled Lightning. The app ran. I installed the latest v of TB and Lightning and the app won't run. She's on Vista. I then went to my Mom's gmail account on the web and her calendar was empty! In fact, it was like a new google calendar that hadn't been set up yet. She lost 2 years of my data entry into her calendar. I can restore it from mine, but not using TB as it won't run with Lightning on her Vista machine. At this point, all I want to do is get rid of everything mozilla. I'm sorry but, if you've ever lost a lot of data due to a software/hardware failure, you should know how I feel. This is not a bug report. This is my review of an app that catastrophically failed me. I posted about this in the forums, but no reply. I am quite done with FF and TB. However, I would like to thank the developers for all their hard work. They created a couple of outstanding products. Unfortunately data loss is not something I care to repeat, if at all possible.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5.2).
Can tell tabs apart and color group by domain. Awesome! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I just installed this extension on my Mom's computer because she has a hard time seeing. It makes a huge difference for her, so I thought I'd install it in my FF as well and I love it! I LOVE how I can color domains the same and using the fading feature, it's easy to tell which tab is active. This is an awesome addition to FF.
I don't know why someone said the "x" disappears. It isn't visible in the tabs that aren't active, but you don't need it visible in the inactive tabs because they're inactive! Another review stated that they can't tell which tab is active. Well, after you select to highlight the active tab in the options, you have to adjust the dimming of the other tabs right above it. I have mine dimmed to 7. The colors are there, but they're faded compared to the brightly colored active tab. I think some of these reviews are unfair because the people reviewing haven't gone through the settings for the add-on.
This add-on is outstanding! Thank you for this great feature!
