My Reviews


Too inefficient Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I loaded a message in Thunderbird 10, which contained a winmail.dat attachment (~1.2 MB). As a result of that I received for about 10 minutes numerous messages:

"A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will complete.

Script: chrome://lookout/content/tnef.js:1105"

I clicked Continue on each of them. After that I tried to open one of the resultant attachments and again received numerous messages with the same text. During that I noticed that the memory usage of Thunderbird fluctuated widely (it doubled several times for brief moments).

After several minutes Thunderbird finally showed an Open dialog window.

The LSO Manager is slow. When I click "Prevent automatic LSO deletion" I get two warnings ("Warning: Unresponsive script") and the memory usage of Firefox doubles for a brief moment.
There is no way to select multiple LSOs and perform an action on them.
When I clicked "Edit protection list" and closed the LSO protection list editor, which contained no entries, I lost all protected entries in the LSO Manager. I spend considerable time to label one by one numerous LSOs and that time is now lost.

If the technology does not work for me, I don't see a reason to work for it - that means that I won't spend my time and efforts in a support forum/bug tracking list.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.67.1-signed).
