Theme Font & Size Changer

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I am using the Theme Font & Size Changer extension 31.2 with Thunderbird 31.0 and the NoGlass 0.10 theme. I have not observed any problems with this combination. I also use Theme Font & Size Changer extension 31.2 with SeaMonkey 2.26.1. And I setup the same configuration for my wife's PC.

My wife and I are in our 70s. The ability to change font sizes in menus, toolbars, etc is very important to us. On my own PC, I selected the Trebuchet MS font because it has no ambiguous alphabetic characters (e.g., I can now readily tell the difference between I (upper-case eye), l (lower-case ell), and 1 (one)). My wife is still a naive computer user, but she quickly learned how to tailor theme fonts on her PC.

Baris Derin: Good work, and thank you.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (31.2). 

NoGlass

Thunderbird, NoGlass, and Theme Font & Size Changer Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I am using the NoGlass 0.10 theme with Thunderbird 31.0 and the Theme Font & Size Changer extension 31.2. They seem to work together quite well.

Paenglab: Good work, and thanks.

ShowIP

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

ShowIP 2.4 is quite good. ShowIP 2.5 is non-functional.

MagicSLR

Necessary But Could Be Improved Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I consider this extension to be required with the installation of the Send Later extension. However, the MagicSLR option "Ask me if I want to send my unsent messages" at shutdown actually sends them at the next startup. Functionality for this at shutdown is really needed.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.9.1).

New Version 0.3.1 Cannot Be Installed in SeaMonkey Rated 1 out of 5 stars

A special version 0.1 was made available for installation in SeaMonkey. I got that special SeaMonkey version from <http://neil.rashbrook.org/%7B70ded480-0a45-4099-84d1-65aa1cb1575e%7D.xpi>. The file is named {70ded480-0a45-4099-84d1-65aa1cb1575e}.xpi. It would have been easier and possibly nicer to communicate this if I had a way to contact the author (Jonathan Kew) without resorting to writing a review. However, I cannot find any contact information.

This is still a problem with version 0.3.1.

Remember Passwords

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

With Remember Passwords 1.0.1 disabled, I deleted the saved passwords for my Web accounts at four different financial institutions. I then logged-in at those accounts. For one of those accounts, my password was saved as I logged-in. For the other three, I successfully logged-in; but my passwords were not saved.

I then enabled Remember Passwords 1.0.1. For the three accounts were my password was not previously saved, it was now saved. This includes two accounts that use split logins.

For all four accounts, I can now use the saved passwords.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.1). 

PrefBar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I installed PrefBar 6.0.1 for SeaMonkey 2.2 in all four profiles that I use, replacing PrefBar 5.1.1 (which was tweaked to enable it for SeaMonkey 2.2). Preliminary testing indicates it is working well. Existing buttons from PrefBar 5.1.1 -- including some that a custom created myself -- still work appropriately.

When restarting SeaMonkey (required as part of the installation), an enabled Internet connection was requested so that http://prefbar.tuxfamily.org/ could be accessed.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.1.1). 

Preserve Download Modification Timestamp

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This extension works in SeaMonkey exactly the way I would want it to work. Yes, I had some problems at first; but they were caused by me not setting the correct options. I think better instructions are needed. The few options -- two checkboxes and the "Log verbosity" selection list -- need to be explained. I still think Mozilla bug #178506 should be implemented as originally proposed, which included a user option for this capability.

Show Password On Input

Sandbox Version Works with SeaMonkey Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This works with SeaMonkey 1.1.7 as requested in bug report #232050.

I originally reported that it does not work with SeaMonkey. Foolish me! I forgot to terminate and restart SeaMonkey. It does work, and I feel stupid.

The code was peer-reviewed by Nils Maier as repored in the thread "Extension Needs Review" (started 25 December 2007) in .
