My Reviews

Heartbleed-Ext

RED is bad, GREEN is good, but what is YELLOW? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Many sites are shown as yellow when loaded in first instance, only reloading the site changed the icon to green.

What is this about?

Downloads Window

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It stays open when I close the main browser window.

But I wish back the compatibility to the addon MinimizeToTray revived 1.1.2

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.3). 

Redirect Remover

FF 25.0.1 and stops Rated 2 out of 5 stars

AutoCopy 2

TB 17.0 and FF 17.0.1 copies from input fields when feature turned off Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Hello,I turned off to copy from input fields but it does on Thunderbird 17.0 and Firefox 17.0.1

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.6). 

Noia 4

Search Bar text goes white (on white background) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Using 1.77 pre3, while entering text into the default search box the text in some cases just changes its font color to white - like the background...

Auto-Update won't work in TB Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The addon works well.

But it's the only addon the auto-update never works.
I always have to go to this site and drag&drop the "green button" to the TB addon tab.

4.9.10b3 aka. 4.9.10b6 works Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hi,

the announced 4.9.10b6 (which is called 4.9.10b3 after installing) just works as used to.

The temporal workaround 4.9.10b2 makes it just worse Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Hello,

before installing the 4.9.10b2 I got the same issue as the most people - 0 bytes or just not downloading anything.

After installing 4.9.10b2 the situation is that there is no recognizing anymore - the tool bar button stays greyed out, only the context menu is available.
The widget button within youtube sites doesn't start a download too.

Bamboo Feed Reader

Some feeds won't open the blog but the "add to feeds" dialogue Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The behavior didn't change with 1.4. Still the same problem.

###

Hmm.

On several feeds clicking on the header link doesn't open the article website but the dialogue to add this same feed...

It's kinda paradox...

Example:
1. opening in bamboo tries to open url alles-schallundrauch.blogspot.com/feeds/7645367999364776346/comments/default - this url makes firefox ask if I want to subscribe to the feed.
2. opening same article header in default firefox feed bookmark opens http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/SchallUndRauch/~3/SYFRPQXOCQY/newt-gingrich-auf-drogen-quatscht-nur.html which refers to http://alles-schallundrauch.blogspot.com/2012/01/newt-gingrich-auf-drogen-quatscht-nur.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+SchallUndRauch+%28Schall+und+Rauch%29

So where is the issue? Does bamboo got problems with feedproxy.google.com? Or is it something else?

btw the feed properties inside bamboo look well

Bamboo Feed Reader

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Wonderful.

I also had to dismiss Brief lately.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2). 

Brief

1.6b1 vs. FF 9.0.1, scrambles Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Now I had to delete the whole brief.sqlite (while exiting and restarting FF) because the contents of the right don't show what should be there.

For example:
left category 1 -> contents category 23
left category 2 -> contents category 7
left category 3 -> contents category 12
left category 4 -> contents category 5

and so on - it's a mess

WebM support, but no correct file naming Rated 5 out of 5 stars

When I choose to download the WebM variant of a video on youtube, the naming is not well done. Check this screenshot, it says all: http://img21.myimg.de/DownloadhelperWebMNamingad940.png

Form History Control

Using the Noia theme some fields are way too small Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Trying to add a rule, I get this window with entry fields so small I can't see the first character inside the fields:

But beside that the addon is wonderful.

Noia 4

(Gérard Durand's version for TB) not an option Rated 5 out of 5 stars

...because the missing scrollbars problem that is solved in Noia 4 for FF is not solved in Gérard Durand's version for TB.
Also the addons manager in that version is (cosmetically) buggy.
So a Noia 4 for Thunderbird would be an option.

Video DownloadHelper

Very good, but lacks SSL support Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I use the extension "HTTPS Everywhere", so also youtube is launched as https:// - in this case the resolution recognition doesn't work.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.9.5). 

MinimizeToTray revived

Also the beta doesn't work with DTA Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I tried the 1.0 and the 1.0b3 from the beta site (but that one seems to be older than 1.0, so it's in fact the beta before the 1.0), both are not able to minimize DTA to tray.
Please fix that.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0). 

ShowIP

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

ShowIP v1.1 doesn't show with the theme Silvermel v1.4.3

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0). 

Nuvola TB

Scollbar onMouseOver ?? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Hi,your theme is great, also for FF, I use the 1.10+ on both.But there is a problem with Nuvola TB (same with 1.10 as 1.10+) that the scrollbar is nearly invisible but gets visible when the mouse cursor hovers over it.Look here: http://img17.myimg.de/TBNuvolaScrollbalkenbugc90b7.png and http://img17.myimg.de/TBNuvolaScrollbalkenbug5fb8e.png

Edit: no - now the same thing happens with FF - sometimes...

Edit: Okay, I created brand new profiles for FF and TB. In FF the problem is gone for now, but in TB it happens from the beginning.

Edit: So now I see it also happens on FF.

It's so and so. Someday both FF and TB got no problems. Next day it's only FF, then only TB, then both ... ?

Noia 4

Update to my last post: works with configurator deactivated Rated 4 out of 5 stars

After several restarts of FF it still works when the configurator is deactivated.

--

The scrollbar on the right disappears after the 2nd start after choosing a preset.
When I change the preset and restart FF it's okay, also for the next start, but the 3rd it's missing again.

And so on.

I know the "workaround" everybody shouts: "create a clean profile" jep jep but do you know how disgusting that is to create a brand new profile and to setup all the extensions?

What could that be?

It's also on Noia Fox and only on Noia stuff, nowhere else.
