My Reviews

Case Changer

Thunderbird version please, please, please Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I'm begging you to create a version that works with Thunderbird email. I periodically search for case changing extensions for Mozilla programs and you seem to be the only one who is doing something about this. I have had case changing in my text writing programs since the eighties and I don't know why I can't have it in Thunderbird.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.0.13). 

CountdownClock

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I have been using this extension for years to countdown to Christmas and then to the first day of Spring. I have been successfully forcing compatibility up to FF 3.6.13. I expect it will stop working when FF 4 gets released.

So far this is the extension I miss the most since upgrading to FF 3.6. I'm begging you (take my word for it, I'm on my knees with my hands clasped) to upgrade, I miss it a lot. I tried forcing compatibility but this did not work.

Yes please update to 3.6. I force compatibility and now it draws boxes but doesn't select anything.

Close Tab By Double Click

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you. This makes the tabs in TB work the same as the way I can close tabs in Firefox.

Classic Reloaded

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank You
Someone usually does something like this for every new version of Thunderbird. Since the icons activate similar functions across all versions, why radically change them? I've used this theme for years.
How about posting this page in English?

Qute for Thunderbird

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This use to be my favorite theme and I used it for years before TB3. It hasn't been updated for nearly two years and someone else needs to take it over.

Thank you for this theme. There don't seem to very many gentle subtly colored themes for the new Thunderbird 3. They and the default all seem rather angular or harsh. I have a hard time telling what the buttons mean in many themes.

Qute for Thunderbird

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Please update this for Thunderbird 3. I want to use Qute as long as I use TB. The new theme is just plain ugly. I tried forcing compatibility, but the new icons in the new message headers are screwed up.

toolbarmode

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is the only extension I miss that didn't make the cut when I upgraded to Firefox 3.5. Boy do I miss it. I think there was a way to do this without an extension but I can't figure out how.

Pronounce

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I really like this, but it really needs to do something when it can't pronounce a word. I wish it would beep to let me know it can't pronounce a word, because my first impression is it is not working and I then click on another word to test it. I also wish it could pronounce foreign words and places names.

NestedQuote Remover

I would like zero quotes also and not see any >.

Qute 3++

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I prefer this classic icon set over the recently updated Qute theme. The find function doesn't work for me either and I may not be able to use this theme either.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4.10.20090816). 

Qute

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Sorry, I don't care for the new version at all. I don't like the red heart it grabs too much attention and the house Home button looks funny too. The old version was more subtle and pastel. I've used Qute as my theme for years, but now I'm using the default FF theme now. How about a Qute Classic theme? For zeus sake, please don't feel you have to change the Thunderbird theme too.

ScrapBook

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Website is still down as of June 28. I have not found an alternative to this and I have years of pages I've saved with Scapbook. I won't upgrade to FF 3.5 until this is worked out. If the author has lost interest maybe someone else can take it over or have it become open source?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.3.9). 

Manage Folders

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Should be built into Firefox.

Resizeable Textarea

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is great but I notice it doesn't seem to work in YouTube.
