My Reviews

Address Widget Lines

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is great, saves a lot of screen space. It even works without restarting TB. Muchos kudos!

Slim Add-ons Manager

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Would be nice if this worked for Thunderbird 6, too.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.0.1-signed). 

Tile Tabs

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very useful, easy and stable. I'd wish there was an option for a Synchronized Scroll per default.

Find All

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very useful but I found that jumping to a result by clicking the search result line doesn't work on all pages.
e.g. ist doesn't work on http://bit.ly/lAj290

@zhngmyfirefox: All of what you criticize works, try it out in a new plain profile.

Update Notifier

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Fx4-Update would be nice; the built-in function is not well configurable and doesn't notify the user in the needed amount

ColorfulTabs

Great! Please add favicon generated colors Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I switched from ChromaTabs to ColorfulTabs because this one seems to be a lot faster and works better with Fx4.It would be nice if the site-specific color could be generated from the site-icon (favicon) like ChromaTabs is doing that, so AMO would automatically get a sort of green etc.Btw.: what GiuliaC below called a bug is a great feature: the color of the tab is repeated as a small line across the whole window. That makes it more easier to see which tab is the active one.

Custom Buttons²

Firefox 4 version Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Looking forward to the Fx4 version. Keep it up!

Cutyfox URL Shortener (bit.ly, is.gd, goo.gl)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Brilliant. Thanks for your work! / Super, vielen Dank!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4.0.1-signed). 

Textarea Cache

Indispensable Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This brilliant extension was already indispensable in the previous version. Just this second I thought of writing you to propose some new options for old data cleaning. And in this moment Firefox told me there was a new version 0.8 with "new options for old data cleaning".This is so cool :-) 5 Stars and Thumbs Up
(Edit:) Downside: all the new data cleaning functions seem to conflict with one of my other extensions, they only work in a fresh profile.

Saved Password Editor

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very nice. If it additionally could sort the passwords (for cases where the password manager shows different accounts for one site) it would be outstanding.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5.3). 

Enter Selects

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Yeah! Works with keyworded bookmarks now. Thanks!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.1-signed). 

SaveLink

favicon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Nice. This would be even better if it would automatically save the webpage's favicon and assign it to the shortcut

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1). 

Reuse Home Page

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Isn't there anyone who can help making this small but indispensable extension work on v3.6?

SmartTemplate

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Awesome, thanks!

Expression Search

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great extension. Unfortunately this conflicts with the excellent "Quick Filter Prototype" extension. If Expression Search would work with it and would have an option to only work on gloda (not on the current view) these two extensions would be a perfect team.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3). 

ParseURL

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very nice. A great improvement idea:
the Variable List window could allow to unselect single name/value-pairs and/or alter the value. Then, in addition to the OK button a "Reload [page with altered variables]"-button could do exactly that: reloading with the new variables and data.
This would save us from the hassle of manually altering the URL in the location bar when there's need to remove or alter data.

ChromaTabs Plus

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very good looks but as already written below: switching tabs is very slow even if you have only two tabs open.
Using Firefox feels sluggish this way

Dictionary Switcher for Thunderbird

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Wonderful, simple usage and extremely useful. Thank you very much!

CuteButtons - Crystal SVG

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very nice though there should be a way to exclude some stuff like checkboxes

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.7). 

Chrome View

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Perfect, thanks!.
I suggest to support icons for the context menu. That would be something like
menuitem[label="View This Page in Chrome"] {
list-style-image: url("chrome://chromeview/skin/toolbar-16-enabled.png") !important;
}
or even better (for multi-language-support) same thing with an id instead of going with the label.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.0).
