My Reviews

Firefox Sync for Firefox 3.5/3.6

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

On our two Thinkpads running XP Pro SP3, this is impossible to install. We can't get by the blank "robot" screen. A suggestion in the forum to disable adblock and noscript (why!?) and restart did not work.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4.3). 

Better Gmail 2

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Sorry about my comments re Google Labs. It turned out this is a FF 3.6 issue. Using UserAgentSwicher to set FF 2.0 solved this problem.

Better Gmail 2

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I do not see how to add GMail Labs in the Firefox version?

Extremely useful in TB!

CustomizeHeaderToolbar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks for returning control of TB to me!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.0). 

Mailbox Alert

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is very decent biff for TB. It would be nice to have an option to use a keyboard shortcut to close the alert window.

Thanks.

Fireclam

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Re: every file is infected?

My error. I see that I put /usr/sbin/clamd for the executable, as some other ClamAV tool had similar settings. The correct setting here (on the Ubuntu machine) is /usr/bin/clamdscan (clamd is running).

every file is infected? Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Under Ubuntu 9.04,just every file download pops up a window saying it is infected. This is not true. Scans with the same clamdscan on the machine show no problems, and tests on PCs with other AV software show no problems. I'm talking about even pdf files.

Allow HTML Temp

coiuld not get to work on all emails Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I like the setup of this extension, but I could not get it to work on all my emails. For example, I want to preserve fonts and colors in my reply to a given email. I could do this properly using simple_ht_jumper, but I could not do this with allow_html_temp with any combination of options?

Thanks.

Simple HT Jumper

very useful Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I find this very useful. I can reply to an email sent in html & multiple colors, and retain the format and colors of the original email in my reply.

I don't understand AA's comment re allow_html_temp? Using that extension, I could not get the fonts and colors in the original email to be preserved in my reply box, despite trying the various combinations offered?

I look forward to further development of this extension.

Thanks.

attachspace

Serious BUG Rated 1 out of 5 stars

attachspace-1.0 installs OK, but after restarting TB and clicking on options I get:

XML Parsing Error: undefined entity

clamdrib

run clamd on startup Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I very much appreciate clamdrib. I would like at least an option to run clamd whenever Thunderbird is started up. If clamd is already running, then no harm is done. However, for any reason clamd is not running, and automatic downloads from other servers are in force, I'd like clamd started up ASAP for sure.

Thanks.
