Quicktext

QuickText templates gone with Tbird 45 update Rated 1 out of 5 stars

A five-star add-on, but the latest Thunderbird update (v45) has disabled it. My templates are no longer accessible. I use this add-on for *everything*, and Thunderbird is pretty much crippled without it.

Agreeing with others reporting the same thing. Please fix ASAP!

Update: As I see many with the same issue, and in several places indication that the programmer is no longer reachable regarding this plugin, I have installed Clippings and will attempt to make do with that. It's fairly nice, though lacks a few of QuickText's conveniences. Alas.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.11.6).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Evernote Tab

It works. Sorta. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Although the plugin works, it's definitely no substitute for the good old Web Clipper for Thunderbird that Evernote unceremoniously stopped supporting/updating last year. I miss that so much, all of the workarounds, including this one, are so clunky. In addition, I find that every time Evernote Tab opens in Thunderbird, it hogs all my resources and slows my computer (a relatively new Windows 7 notebook with plenty of oomph for everything else) down to a crawl. Very annoying, and it's faster to just copy, open Evernote Desktop, and paste! Not sure if I'll keep this installed, as due to the resource hogging problem, it may be more trouble to use than convenience.

Personas Plus

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Have been using Personas for Thunderbird since it was first implemented. However, within the past few months, if Personas is activated, the URLs for web addresses in emails are no longer showing in the status bar of the program. If I deactivate Personas, the URLs show up normally. I don't know if this is intentional, or a bug, but it seems to be the ability to know where a link is taking you, and if the link has been forged, is more important than keeping the bottom status bar "pretty" when one mouses over a link. Otherwise, it's a nice add-on that works quite well.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.6.2.1-signed).
