My Reviews

XML Search Engines Exporter/Importer

Must have! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I don't know why the Mozilla developers didn't do this when they changed the search plugins format. The answer to my request in bugzilla directed me here. So this extension is a must have if you want to edit or add search plugins manually.
Thank you very much for this work!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1). 

xpDefault Colored Buttons

Great! Works again Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you very much, Alain, for taking over this fantastic theme.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (45.0.2).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

xpDefault Colored Buttons

Is there any substitute for this theme? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

What a pity that this classic theme will not be maintained any more. Who found a substitute? I didn't. NoGlas doesn't show colored icons, I don't like classic-TB2 and here it doesn't show the compose window correct.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (38.0). 

Dorando keyconfig

Great: keyconfig is on AMO for the first time Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I used the original keyconfig for years and am very pleased to have this new and maintained version on AMO now. So many more Firefox and Thunderbird users can find this helpful tool.
Maybe the developer wants to add this forum http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=48&t=72994 to this AMO page. In this forum users get and give help to add own shortcuts.

sidebar popup panel

Very nice, but auto-hide doesn't work any more Rated 4 out of 5 stars

In Firfox 45.0 I noticed that the auto-hide function doesn't work any more. You always need to use the close button of the sidebar

Web Search Pro

@Registrierter Benutzer Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The bug you mention comes from CuteButtons, not from Web Search Pro. This bug is fixed with CuteButtons v0.4.6

mPage

Cannot add feeds from bookmark folder Rated 1 out of 5 stars

In the sync tab I added connections to bookmark folders with feeds, but nothing is displayed. Is this the same problem as with other feed readers that don't display new feeds since Firefox 42?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.6). 

gui:config

Developer version seems to work again Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I only tested a few settings with the developer version (at the very end of this page), and they worked.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.3.1-signed). 

Duplicate Contact Manager

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Funktioniert sehr gut, im Gegensatz zur Beschreibung auf dieser Seite auch mit neuen Thunderbird-Versionen und mit zwei verschiedenen Adressbüchern.

An den Entwickler: die Anweisung in duplicateContactsManager.css "description" bitte in "#explanation description" ändern. Zur Zeit wird das untere Fenster des Adressbuchs beeinflusst, und zwar so, dass zwischen allen Zeilen ein großer Abstand erzeugt wird durch "padding: 10px".

AutoPager

Seems not to be maintained any more Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I loved to use it for several years, but for some time I am not able to add new working rules.
The developer didn't respond to e-mail-message and the help forum is filled with spam.
What a pity.

History Deleter

Still maintained? Still crashes Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This was a fantastic tool, but the settings window crashes too often :-(

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.4.1). 

Self-Destructing Cookies

Perfect also in combination with CookieMonster Rated 5 out of 5 stars

CookieMonster allows to allow cookies per domain for session only by blocking all cookies as standard setting.
Self-Destruction Cookies extends this feature to allow cookies only as long as the tab is open, if you use the documented hidden feature.
That's what I was waiting for! Thank you.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.3.1-signed). 

Event-extract

Not useful Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Indeed, it suggests date and time information. But these suggestions are useless because they have nothing in common with the dates in the mails. What a pity. If it worked it where helpful.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4). 

Autofill Forms

Still maintained or not? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I thought this add-on was not maintained any more. Now I read with surprise and joy an answer from Albine. Did you decide to keep on maintaining this add-on?If so, great, because it generally still works with FF 24, except:
- As mentioned in another post the layout of the settings windows is not OK any more and therefore very inconvenient but still usable.
- Additionally AutoFillForms doesn't recognize HTML5 email form fields. As the developer wrote to me this can be easily fixed by adding it to the preferences in about:config
The contents of
extensions.autofillForms@blueimp.net.regExpFormFieldTypes
must be enhanced to
^(?:(?:text(?:area)?)|(?:select-(?:(?:one)|(?:multiple)))|(?:checkbox)|(?:radio)|(?:password)|(?:file)|(?:email))$

Print pages to Pdf

Awesome! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is awesome. The PDF results are very good (not 100% perfect, but I tested many tools with mostly worse results) and the additional features make it a joy to work with the files.Just use the preliminary version for latest Firefox versions.
Thank you to the developer! Great work.

For good results I use the time delay setting for Javascript. I have userscripts for some websites, they take some time. So if you have discontenting results increase this setting. Good results are worth waiting 1 or a few seconds.

Inspect Context

Helpful (but) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Firefox now has it's own inspect context menu entry but his add-on allows you to easily inspect context menu entries themselves!
Unfortunately e.g. the sub-menu for the spell checker dictionaries cannot be inspected.
The inspect entry is at the top of the context menu. I'd rather have it together with the inspect entry of Firefox. This add-on's entry cannot be moved with Menu Editor. I would appreciate this possibility.

Classic TB2

beautiful and ergonomic Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A clear and light weight theme with buttons easy to identify.
I miss buttons for lightning.
Thank you very much.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.0). 

Hide C. Titlebar Plus Lite

Makes Thunderbird menu much better Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on gives the new Thunderbird look a much nicer appearance. The Firefox-like menu button is much nicer than the ugly original one. And the floating menu bar gives quick access to all items what I miss in the new Thunderbird menu.
Thank you!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.2). 

Purge Events Plus

Very helpful, I recommend it Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Well, this add-on needs some more positive ratings! It is easy to configure, variable because you can configure it for each calender file separately, and the current version DOES purge automatically.
And the add-on is being maintained, so future versions will have more features!
I recommend it for every lightning user.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.5). 

Autofill Forms

Helpful if you often use similar forms Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It is quite complicated for a "normal" user to get this add-on
going. But if you did it is helpful. For few forms to fill it is too much work. Unfortunately the programmers of forms are so "creative" that it is difficult to make profiles that fit for most forms.
But if you use the same forms often, the feature to automatically create a fitting profile is very helpful.
