Provider for Google Calendar

Not all events are syncing Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I have several events on my calendar that don't show up in Lightning! I'm not sure exactly what is different for these events from other ones that do sync, except that I am listed as an optional attendee.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.25).  This user has 2 previous reviews of this add-on.

FireTray

Fundamentally broken on Ubuntu 13.10 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Notifications don't appear. Indicator never changes state. If you check the box to start Thunderbird minimized, then you will never see Thunderbird again until you start it in safe mode and disable this add-on.

Provider for Google Calendar

Working again Rated 4 out of 5 stars

New release of this add-on fixed the hanging problem I have been having. Remember to use the PRIVATE XML google link...its the only one that would work for me.

gContactSync

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

New User -- So far so good with this as my Zindus replacement. But based on other reviews I made sure to delete all my contacts in Thunderbird before syncing.

HttpRequester

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Essentially unusable. Could not get it to work with urlformencoded. Man I wish there was postman for firefox!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.4). 

FireTray

Closes to tray, but doesn't minimize to tray Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Running Ubuntu 12.04 with Unity. Everything works as advertised except minimizing leaves the Thunderbird app sitting in the launcher. Closing the apps works great thought, TB dissapears but sticks around to give notifications and indicator updates. Very good add-on for those of us that make use of workspaces.

Addons in Urlbar

Simply works Rated 5 out of 5 stars

How many of these add-ons actually do what they say they will. Well this one does. Thanks for saving me real estate...

MinimizeToTray revived

Almost awesome Rated 4 out of 5 stars

But when Thunderbird is restored, its menus are missing from the Unity Global menu. Running a fully updated Ubuntu 12.04.

Workaround was to reinstall thunderbird-globalmenu from syntapic.

Evernote Tab

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works as advertised. Nice to be able to see notes in the same app as email...especially on Ubuntu!

Google Tasks Panel

Huge improvement Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Just mvoed from 1 star to 4 stars with the latest release. I have multiple Google accounts which have tasks, and, while it's still a touch flaky, I can now switch accounts and see the tasks for the gmail account I am logged in with.

I do wish it had an option to open the advanced view in a seperate tab. Chrome has this and it's sweet.

Thunderbird Conversations

Where is All-Mail? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I am intrigued by this add-on and will be keep an eye on it. But for now I have to disable it because I really need to use my AllMain label for searching (both manually and via search function). Am I right, or am I missing something?

Also missing is an easy way for me to label an email so it goes to the correct gmail folder. Without I still have to have all my gmail accounts open in the tree anyway. At which point, this add-on loses a lot of its potential.

FlashTracer

Great tool, but needs updating Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Only 4 stars because it doesn't support 6.0.2!

Firefox Sync for Firefox 3.5/3.6

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on has worked very well for me for the past year. Since this capability is now built into FF4, I do wish they would have notified me somehow...wasted 10 minutes trying to figure this out...

Firefox Sync for Firefox 3.5/3.6

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Simply awesome. I run this from several Ubuntu and MS Windows machines. Worked perfectly for the past year...and I have over 600 bookmarks.

Lightning

64 bit is available on Linux Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Let me google that for you:

Provider for Google Calendar

Works, but.... Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This add-on works exactly as advertised. However I assumed that my calendar items would be available when I am offline. They are not.

This add-on does not make Lightning/Google the same as Outlook/Exchange. If you are offline your calendar is GONE. If you check the "cache" box then when you are offline your calendar is read-only....ugh.

Bottom line, this add-on only allows you to use the Lightning GUI to edit your Google Calendar -- when you are online.
