Great add-on, but currently incompatible with TB 60. Please update!

Feedbro

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I switched to Feedbro from Newfox and have given myself a few weeks to become accustomed to its quirks before commenting here. Overall Feedbro is a solid RSS reader with a lot of built-in flexibility. A couple of comments:

1. When you release a new version, it would be nice if you would include release notes. More than once I've found out only by trial and error that certain issues have been fixed and/or features changed or added.

2. Allow the user to turn off the warning you click 'Refresh All Feeds'. I only have 40+ feeds that I follow and it's neither resource intensive nor time consuming for me to use this feature. I tend to set the auto-refresh to longer intervals to avoid being distracted while working, and hit refresh all (thank you for adding that, btw) when I have a break. The warning is nothing but an annoyance after the first couple of appearances.

3. It would helpful if the rules would allow me to filter out duplicate articles by either title or URL. Many news feeds regurgitate headlines several times a day, either as clickbait or because there has been some insignificant change in the article. It would really speed my reading if I didn't have to plow through all those unnecessary duplicates.

Thanks for a great extension and being so responsive to user input.

Edit: Finally found the change log mentioned in the developer's reply. I had to disable the "Open All Items View" option. Weird. There should be another way to get to those links easily.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.33.0). 

SelectionSK

Great Add-on! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Edit: Updated to five stars with recent updates.

Nice to see this add-on updated for WebExtensions. Even as a work-in-progress, it's a convenient and useful add-on. Due to the limitations of WebExtensions, it is a bit more complicated to set up the necessary bookmarks as you can't just import your existing search engines, but that also gives the user a bit more flexibility in organizing the search options. Perhaps the developer can create an bookmark import feature and host a repository of bookmarks with user contributions.

The biggest annoyance right now is that the pop-up isn't yet aware of its position in the browser window, which means the pop-up can often appear outside to the right or below the current window. I do expect that will get fixed in future versions. (It was!)

Also, the developer's comments notwithstanding, the add-on CAN be used on add-ons.mozilla.org, but you have to add a new boolean — privacy.resistFingerprinting.block_mozAddonManager — to about:config in FF 57 and set its value to true. I find this particularly helpful for translating add-on reviews.

Distill Web Monitor

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A long-term user, the migration to WebExtensions has been smooth and painless. A terrific add-on. One of the few I'd hate to do without.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.6.36).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Kee

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm impressed with the developer's overall success in migrating KeeFox (now Kee) to WebExtensions. Kee remains one of the most versatile and powerful tools for using and managing passwords in Firefox. For those upset by the loss of certain features—search being the most often mentioned—please remember that this was a forced migration and that some of the technology needed to implement certain features doesn't exist with Firefox 57+. So don't blame the developer, especially since he's stated on kee.pm that he's committed to finding a way to bring features such as search back to Kee as soon as possible. Thanks, luckyrat!!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.0.25). 

Distill Web Monitor

Great Extension. Kudos for updating to Web Extensions! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great add-on and I'm pleased it's been updated using web extensions for Firefox 57+.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.6.28). 

Blur

BLUR is the clear choice for ... Rated 1 out of 5 stars

... people who like overworked products that regularly interfere with normal browsing and who want an overload of mostly unnecessary features that can't be turned off even when you don't want them. John Galt has it absolutely right with his review. This used to be a nice add-on, now I'm uninstalling it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.5.1334.1-signed). 

SearchLoad Options

Updated for Firefox 29!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love this add-on, although it has not always been reliable. I am very happy to see this add-on has been updated and is now working with Firefox 29!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.4.1-signed). 

Mail Redirect

One of my favorites! But ... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It continues to baffle my why this functionality is not included in Thunderbird (or any email client) by default, as I consider this one of the most powerful and highly useful tools for managing email. Being able to redirect--rather than forward--an email not only eliminates the formatting mess that forwarding sometimes makes, but more importantly enables me to "step out" of the middle of conversations where it is useful and appropriate to do so.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.4). 

AddressBookTab

Great to Have it Back!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've never understood why Thunderbird implemented tabs and then didn't use them for the Address Book or to Compose new messages -- which is why I've always been a fan of this extension. And now, with the update to 1.4.2 (click on "View all versions" until it clears AMO), I've finally got it back after a lengthy absence during the Shredder beta. Well done. Thank you!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4.1). 

Readability

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This one has moved near the top of the list of my favorite add-ons. Terrific!
