My Reviews


Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Simple, does what it says on the box, and is already helping me to not mess things up!

Simple Tab Groups

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

If you were a die-hard Tab Groups user, this just might be the only way forward for you with FF Quantum.

I tried many replacements for Tab Groups until this add-on came out. In my opinion, it's the only one that even comes close (unless there is a proper re-write of the original Tab Groups for FF Quantum).

There are some bumps along the way - some of them are Firefox bugs, some of them are add-on issues - but I think the developer has been doing a great job of maintaining this add-on and managing expectations.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.4.7). 


Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Pretty nice integration with Firefox. It was worth it to import my stored passwords into here, finally integrating my two password databases into one.

Evolution Mirror

A bit wonky to start, seems to work well once it starts Rated 4 out of 5 stars

My setup is: Fedora 15, Thunderbird 6, Lightning 1.0.0.b5pre (all official Fedora packages), Evolution 3.0.2. You NEED to install the python bindings for Evolution FIRST for this add-on to work! On Fedora 15 this package is called "gnome-python2-evolution" in Add/Remove Software.Once I installed the above package, and then the add-on, Thunderbird really chugged when it restarted. I had five calendars, and I don't purge old events. Plus, I hadn't used one of my calendars in a while and it was not switched on in TB, but the Mirror add-on was still adding its events to Evolution - I didn't expect that. Once I removed said dormant calendar, restarted TB one more time, and got a coffee while the plug-in did its thing, everything worked as advertised. I liked that it works, and I can now click the clock in Gnome Shell and see my schedule at a glance. What this add-on needs is better error checking (eg. if the python-evolution bindings are missing) and some kind of progress indicator for the first sync.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.3).
