My Reviews

GDrive Panel

Astoundingly simple, Astoundingly productive! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Wonderful. One click on the icon, no matter what tab I'm on , and GDrive Panel opens up an overlay with my Google Drive. I simply locate the document I want, and off I go. The panel is a fully-functional Google Drive page, including preview and link sharing functions. Great!

Dropbox for Filelink

Works perfectly Rated 5 out of 5 stars

One thing to note: do not delete the attachment from the message. Doing so removes the file from Dropbox.

I made this mistake. Thought the problem was Dropbox for Filelink. Just don't delete the files from the attachment pane. The files will show "as if attached" including their original file size. When the message is sent, the files will continue to show as attachments but with 0-bytes file size.

pdfit

Freaking brilliant! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Did exactly as I needed. Was having a devil of a time saving a page as PDF using Chrome or Firefox -- tried pdfit - worked perfectly. Thanks!

Mail Merge

use MS-DOS Comma Separated (.csv) format Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Tip: If you use Excel, save your CSV as an "MS-DOS Comma Separated (.csv)." Any other of the CSV choice in Excel will fail.

Request: Add a "cancel" feature to the mailmerge process. On those occasions when the CSV file is incorrect, MailMerge hangs, cannot be stopped or closed, and Thunderbird must be force-quit. Quite a pain in the petard. Have a "Cancel" feature that can be invoked during a failing merge would be huge.

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

PDF Download

No longer works - Nitro page call fails Rated 1 out of 5 stars

used to work well. no longer. calls a nitro page - which has apparently moved: "We're sorry, mate! That page cannot be found."

OpenSearch

Breaks tab switching with keyboard Rated 1 out of 5 stars

OpenSearch breaks switching between tabs using keyboard shortcuts (i.e. CTRL-PgUp and CTRL-PgDn)

Lightning

Fix Thunderbird 15′s break of Google Calendar Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Mozilla pushed Thunderbird 15 to me today, which I installed along with Lightning 1.7.
Some very cool new features (like integrated chat and slick new UI)

BUT – Tbrd 15/Ltng 1.7 broke my Google calendar integration. I could no longer create events and could not dismiss events already in my calendar. Essentially, all the write functions to my Google calendars were broken.

THERE IS A FIX!
