Thanks, man, thanks! And it also helps add-ons work again which do not work properly anymore with the n-th overhaul of design (eg Pocket).This review is for a previous version of the add-on (22.214.171.124).
Working fine, it really helps me a lot, having correspondents in several countries speaking different languages.
I'm just wondering where the data is stored? For trouble-shooting... you won't need it in everyday life. And if there was some indicator (flag, or just text) in the status bar, that would be lovely. Just some suggestion for future versions.
EDIT 2015-01-10: Thanks for the reply! I found the data in the user preferences (file pref.js or preferences extensions.automatic_dictionary.* in config editor). As for the little status bar flag I dreamt about, I contacted him directly and got the answer that he prefers to keep the add-on as simple as possible (and I do agree).
This will color certain elements on any web page according to their HTML tags (eg "li.row), it's rather easy and does not require any further knowledge of CSS (just a rough understanding of what HTML tags are may be useful).
I don't know why more and more websites are putting videos, they may think it's funny, I think it's annoying, and I don't see why a browser should support this. Thanks to mdsy, I can now browse without being disturbed.
An absolute necessity, missing in standard Firefox.
It's a really nice feature to help you to continue reading after scrolling down a page.
Yet it would be nice to be able to configure the line (opacity, time to show), which is not possible yet.
Works fine for me, even on IMAP account, and offers quite a lot of options (only TO, FROM, CC etc).
The context menu in itself is shortened as expected, five stars for this, I was waiting for such an extension for so long.
But there are side-effects... for example, the menu of the ScreenGrab extensions becomes "shortened" and thus completely invisible.
Will close all tabs and create a page from where you can re-open them. No history or form data maintained. Opened tabs will not be removed from the list.
I'd rather recommend Read-it-later, bootstack, or add-ons to bookmark all tabs.
Seems to download all pinboard bookmarks and performs a rather fast search on them. Great !
The only drawback is that is not really integrated into Firefox (e.g. as a sidebar) but that you have to run it from the tools menu (I was struggling a little while before I found that out).
Finally a way to set the normal list view as default again.
Great! And now you can even specify in which directory the data is stored so it works seamlessly with synchronisation software like Dropbox :-)This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.0.1).
For date format options, look at http://jamescookie.com/extensions/datepicker.html
Sorting by URL seems to be the most natural way to cope with a huge number of tabs opened. Simple to use (thanks to entry in tools menu).
Simple but efficient highlighter, I tried many, this seems to be the best by far. Work boundaries (\b) work fine in regular expressions. Would love to see this on Thunderbird, too.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.8). This user has a previous review of this add-on.
Probably the best (but still simple) highlighter around.Regular expressions seem to work fine even though I've got an issue with word boundary (\b).Would love to see this for Thunderbird, too.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.8).
There used to be a problem with virtual folders (search folders) but there's where I need the colors most. This seems to be repaired now and it's fantastic for me now.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0).
Great! I may have wished to have a bit more options about what to see and maybe to toggle between standard and compact header, but so far it's really improving the experience with Thunderbird on smaller screens... Except that it seems that the compact header defines a minimum width which will make my window (under ubuntu), when maximized, reach over the end of my screen (on a tiny netbook) - or is there some other addon incompatibility??This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.7).
Great, it really shows the whole thread in an overview and helps me a lot!!
I'm giving it only four stars because some things may still be improved:
- show contact picture
- allow to send the reply later (it's sending immediately if you use fast reply)
- some issues with text size (even though it's okay for me now, I had some issues before on other computers)
That said, let's not forget that it revolutionizes (replaces) the way the messages are shown so some incompatibilities (eg when using an addin to display contact photos) will be inevitable.
The idea is great and it makes the whole folder structure much more readable. Alas, it only seems to work for real folders (remote or local), but not for virtual (search) folders.
