I'm giving Mail Redirect 5 stars for my experience with it on my laptop, where it runs like a dream. I have been unable to install it on my PC, however.
Both the laptop and PC have the latest Thunderbird, 13.0.1, auto-updated. When I try to install Mail Redirect on T'bird on the PC, however, it says "Mail Redirect could not be installed because it is incompatible with version 13.0.1."
The only difference between these two machines is that my laptop is running Vista Home and the PC is running WinXP Pro SP3.
If the problem is the operating system, why doesn't it say so? This is really frustrating.
I'm a big fan of color, but for some reason the big colorful displays in the new Forecastfox put me off. I feel like this useful tool has been redesigned to appeal to preschoolers or something.
Part of the problem is that the pop-ups are too big. They cover up too much of the screen. And I don't know whether it's my computer or what, but the actual text is in very small type and is hard for me to read.
I have reverted back to old reliable 0.9.10.2. I wish an alternative version using the old display could be made available with the modern bug fixes and actual improvements.
I took one look at the new Forecastfox and immediately downgraded back to 0.9.10.2. Everything's running just as it did before except for one thing; on very hot days I no longer see the "flaming thermometer". On my other computer, where I never installed the upgrade, the thermometer still shows. And believe me, out here right now it's appropriate. We just had the hottest day on record for this area! Can you tell me how to get the icon back? I checked, and I am using the same icon set (Accuweather.com Iconic) on both machines. JayThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.2).
