ColorfulTabs

What IS Patrick's "innovative idea"? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Thanks for the response Shivanand Sharma! I still think Mozilla is trying to move everyone OFF Firefox! Tyler Downer is the manager for the User Advocacy team at Mozilla and I'd like to know just what sort of "user advocacy" takes place?

It certainly seems Mozilla never ran any SURVEY of users regarding the changes TO Firefox and what it would immediately break!

Worse still, they keep updating OVER my restored earlier versions of FIrefox - FORCING me back to Quantum!

THAT approach is hardly one that endears them to users!

Without my extensions, Firefox is NO DIFFERENT FROM Chrome or Safari - so exactly what is my incentive to STAY with a group that has no interest in listening to me?

ColorfulTabs

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I have no idea HOW to use it - where do I FIND any SETTING for the current tab OR for DOMAINS?

Highlighter

very minimally functional Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I clicked on the highlighter icon (which looks like a standard, wood pencil) and the address line, its entire length to the end of the window, though empty but for the NAME of the recipient followed by a comma, was highlighted in yellow. Selecting "clear' eliminated that.

Then, SELECTING text, I highlighted specifying Cyan, but only the FIRST WORD of the text was highlighted and I was unable to select and highlight any other portion of that LINE!

Double-click selecting INDIVIDUAL WORDS in the line DOES work, but of course the result is choppy and the effort is considerable.

Definitely worthy of no more than a 0.x.x release level assignment.

I thought this had worked well in the past. Am I wrong??

Running T-bird 52.4.0 under mac OS 10.12.6.

Color Folders

not much in error console, but here it is Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Expected color but found ‘default’. Error in parsing value for ‘text-decoration’. Declaration dropped. blank:30:76
Expected color but found ‘default’. Error in parsing value for ‘text-decoration’. Declaration dropped. blank:52:76
TypeError: info is null[Learn More] accountcolors-utilities.js:186:9

Doesn't appear to apply to color folders. But the only entries containing "color"

Are you seeing these?? I keep donating! :-) HOPEFULLY!

Color Folders

Failing completely on TB 52.3.0 64 bit Mac Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Tried Error Console and NOTHING shows under "col" let alone "colorfolders". The add-on won't even COLOR a folder in the first place now - the first time this has happened.

This is all I could find:
Expected color but found ‘top’. Error in parsing value for ‘background-image’. Declaration dropped. render:2:30836
Error in parsing value for ‘border-color’. Declaration dropped. css-min.css:1:13924

And:
reflow: 0.05ms
reflow: 0.04ms function openPopupAtScreen, popup.xml line 67
reflow: 0.02ms

Menu Wizard

enhancement: include compose pane menus Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I keep searching for the DELETE button on email - would LOVE to have it on the LEFT where I would find it most accessible. So it would be great if Menu wizard included the compose pane menus!

Otherwise, Menu Wizard is beyond what I need (or I am behind what it can do!).

Color Folders

Has color folders been abandoned? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I see in the .js file a 2011-2013 copyright and only v1.0 and 1.1 no update dates in comments.

I've donated at least $60 which I realize is undoubtedly paltry, but I HOPED to encourage a new look at the add-on.

Color Folders

error from Error Console TB 52.2 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Color Folders

Enhancement request after a fix Rated 4 out of 5 stars

OK I LOVE the extension! And find it VERY helpful - if ONLY the folder colors would PERSIST, but every update of Thunderbird wipes out all my color assignments. If there is anything I can do to save and reload them, PLEASE let me know!

The enhancement request is to replace the color choice list WITH the expanded color grid - AND to actually apply those colors TO the folders! I can't see where it works fully.

Color Folders

TB 52.2 loaded and wiped-out ALL folder colors! Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Later versions of Thunderbird have been wiping-out all color assignments. I have gone through and re-colored my folders over a half dozen times so far and with perhaps 200 folders this isn't trivial.

I donated once and am willing to donate again - I realize it isn't nearly enough to pay for development time - I'm not rich! But I can hope this problem will be resolved.

Color Folders

Error Console? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

TypeError: folderColor is undefined[Learn More] colorfolders.js:150:5
com.fisheater.colorFolders.onPopupShowing chrome://colorfolders/content/colorfolders.js:150:5

I don't especially want to go into this on TB/EB 54.x because they BOTH WIPE OUT folder color settings!

When I try to use the color folders color palette, it will not apply most of the colors presented.

Color Folders

Error Console? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm running TB 52.1.1 under macOS 10.12.6

The full range of colors from the color folders palette is not applied when selected.

Don't know if the following is any help:

ReferenceError: colorfolders is not defined [Learn More]
TypeError: this.chromeUtilsWindow.openUILinkIn is not a function[Learn More] hudservice.js:425:5

When I enter colorfolders in the filter, I get the following:

colorfolders
ReferenceError: colorfolders is not defined [Learn More]

When I click [Learn More], it tries to open an application - but doesn't know what application to use!

I really don't WANT to attempt this with TB /EB 54 because they both WIPE OUT my tab color settings!!

Oh, one request (if possible) - color the NAME of the folder...

Color Folders

DO need an update Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thunderbird/Earlybird 54 seem to WIPE OUT color settings!

But I LOVE this as much as I love Colorful Tabs for Firefox!

ColorfulTabs

ONE thing lacking Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I LOVE and depend on ColorfulTabs, BUT - I keep LOSING my tab colors with new versions of Thunderbird or Earlybird! I gave up on Earlybird, thinking it was primarily at fault and then ran into the same problem with the latest update of Thunderbird 54.0b1

So the ONE think I would like to see is "save/restore configuration"

One other issue is that the "additional colors" do NOT appear to apply AS they are displayed. Is Thunderbird somehow not amenable to the expanded color attributes??

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (31.1.6). 

Word Count Tool

Thunderbird is a COMPOSITION tool and needs to be full-featured Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This would be a GREAT add-on if it was available for Thunderbird! And Thunderbird needs to be competitive with Outlook when it comes to COMPOSITION. A link with LibreOffice might be wise, that way, WRITING tools could be available from a source where they are most logically developed!

Menu Wizard

Outstanding Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I don't know how this can be improved.
Certainly on of the best, most useful and produtive extensions available!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.04). 

Copy Sent to Current

Indispensible Rated 5 out of 5 stars

With all my folders, especially for personal contacts, I would find it very difficult to do WITHOUT this extension!

However, another extension would be EQUALLY helpful:

When pointed at (or when "in") a folder, "Write" would fill the "To" automatically, based on the Message Filter pointing to the folder!

Folder Filters Button

Timesaver Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a BIG timesaver for me - VERY glad to see it working again in Tbird 42.0

Tab Mix Plus

Not working in Firefox 42.0b1 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Tab Mix Plus is my most important extension. It's ONE reason (of several) why I do not use Safari on my iMac. However, when FF updated (yes, I'm on the Beta channel) to 42.0b1 it appears Tab Mix Plus does not work AT ALL!! Ugh! I don't blame the developers - I blame Mozilla!
