My Reviews

Find In Tabs

Be very careful! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Five stars it would definitely be, if only it didn't waste so much space without recovery. Don't even think to make the result list longer. It will stay to that length for ever and ever, and you'll have to live with it until you create a new profile!

Search Sidebar for Firefox

E-sse-nt-ial! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I wish this project comes back to life for Firefox 3.x... Paraller search should become a feature in every browser.

5 stars for compatible Fx versions. I wish it worked with Minefield.

AttachmentExtractor

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

What a joy at first, and what a disappointment after all!

I need to detach attachments from various folders (around 30) each containing between 500-5000 messages.

I start with one (I want to extract each message folder to a different file folder) and I keep getting the confirmation message, warning me that this operation cannot be undone. I bloody know it can't! Do I have to click 5,000 times on OK?

And then I get every now and then the confirmation window for duplicates and what to do! I've set in options you stupid thing "create a copy with a new filename", I also check each time "remember, don't ask me again" and then I get asked again!!!

Bow, please, tell me; what is going wrong? Are these bugs of features?

I run Tb 3.0b2 on WinXP Pro SP3. The en-US version of Tb, on english Windows. The regional settings are Greece.

Help!

Greek spellchecking dictionary

not working in 3.6a1pre Rated 5 out of 5 stars

As I reported in the Greek-English version of the dictionary comments, the Greek dictionary has stopped working for Greek words. What it does is the following:

a. sometimes it doesn't find any errors at all.

b. sometimes it does catch errors, but it either has no suggestions for them, or it suggests odd strings with random (?) non greek characters

c. When in (b) it wrongly indicates all words with an initial capital letter as wrong, without any suggestion on them.

The Greek-English version has similar problems making it unusable. The English spell checking has no problems.

This is a problem also occurring with no other extensions running, so it doesn't look like such a conflict.

Please, can anyone check on this? It has been such wonderful dictionaries until a month or so ago.

Today's agent string:

EMail Address Crawler

3.0 support Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I need it badly in 3.0 beta 2

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.6.4). 

Extra Folder Columns

zeros should be omitted Rated 4 out of 5 stars

...and as it was said, (account) folders don't necessarily need information.

Could we have those two as boolean options?
Show zeros
Show folder information?

Great to have this feature in 3; it was missing.

Remove Duplicate Messages

Please, add support for Tb 3.0 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Your extension is so missed in Thunderbird 3.0 /Shredder builds.

Tree Style Tab

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I think Apple Inc. is trying to patent your idea, w.r.t. browser history, on behalf of Safari.
You 'd better check it out immediately:

translator

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great extension! 4 1/2 stars from me.

I would have given 5 stars, if it provided Greek Language (it is now supported by Google Translate), and if it could also be used on selected text, instead of a whole page (preferably, with the translation result in a bubble, with a copy option)

At the moment I translate a page to some other language, then I go and manually change the translation url to greek ("el").

Is there some file to change, so that greek is included in the languages?
