Awesome Auto Archive

Could be very usefull ... but isn't (supported anymore) ! A pity Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I have Thunderbird setup to archive with

Yearly archived folders
Keep existing folder structure


When I archive in TB a message from the Inbox, it get's stored under Archives\2016\Inbox
When I use AwesomeArchive with the Scope-Only it get's stored under Archive\2016

When I archive in TB a message from the Inbox\AAA, it get's stored under Archives\2016\Inbox\AAA
When I use AwesomeArchive with the Scope-Only it get's stored under Archive\2016\AAA

As a result, it's not possible with AwesomeArchive to archive messages from Inbox or Sent in corresponding Subdir

Maybe It's by-design but I consider it as wrong. The TB-rules should be followed, eventually with an overuling separate switch or additional Scopes in AwesomeArchive.

If this would be changed, then the Addon would be very usefull !
I contacted the author several times, but it seems we no longer can expect progress in it, really really a pity

All Tabs Helper

How great(er) would it be .... Rated 3 out of 5 stars

If it would be possible to drag&drop (or move) tabs to another Firefox Window from within ATH. Would simplify a lot grouping tabs (by ATH-search) and save that as a session with a session manager

Actually drag&drop works within ATH for the same window. Outside the window the cursor seems to be the icon for a move, but unfortunately nothing happens. So it seems a (smaller) something is missing (not implemented)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.34). 

Clear History by Threads

[Solved in 0.4.2] Not working Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I installed it as requested (after History by threads) and the "Delete" option shows up.

But clicking Delete on a Thread or a single URL (in History by threads) doesn't do anything at all (except closing the opened thread). Everything remains there

Edit: The addon is indeed working again in 0.4.2. Thanks !

Stylish

Bad performance Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Really a pity, but I need Stylish just because of the "Firefox Reader: Custom width + multi column" style.

If that wasn't the case, I would remove Stylish asap because about:performance reports it as "Stylish may currently be slowing down Firefox".

Not occasionally, but all the time

IP Cam PTZ

Weird : Disable not working ? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The addon as such is great !

But .... it seems impossible to really disable it. In the addon list it always says "... will be disabled at next FF start". And this doesn't change after a restart.

Next to the addon the "Enable" button is there, but this is in contradiction with the above.

Also, the IPcam PAN-buttons are still there in the toolbar.

No idea what's happening

Copy Extensions to Clipboard

Thunderbird Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's really a pity that this add-on isn't available for Thunderbird too !

In Firefox I use it to compare in a spreadsheet installed add-ons in various profiles.
Would be great if I could do the same for Thunderbird

Expression Search / GMailUI

TB45 : Working Rated 5 out of 5 stars

There was no way to update to the newer gmailui-1.0-tb.xpi with the AddOn Updater (always gave a download-error) !
The good news is : after downloading the gmailui-1.0-tb.xpi manually / locally and installing (actually updating) from the saved file, it works in TB45

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.1-let-fixed). 

OneTab

First impressions Rated 3 out of 5 stars

OneTab seems to be ok, till now no negative experience with loosing tabs.

However I would have preferred another way of working / activating the functions : instead of immediate execution when the Icon is clicked, having the context menu-options which now become available when right-clicking in the window.

As it is now, by error clicking can happen, resulting in everything moved into OneTab. I know, one can restore, but the tab-history is lost.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.9.1-signed.1-signed). 

Signature Switch

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Indeed, annoying it doesn't use the already configured settings to determine where the signature should come. Now always at the end (in a reply)

Otherwise a very handy tool !

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.6.11). 

RDown - Rapidshare Downloader

Installation problem 0.6.0 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

There is a problem with the installation : Firefox could not install the file at

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/downloads/latest/8376/addon-8376-latest.xpi?src=addondetail

because: Invalid file hash (possible download corruption)

AddOn Variant Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hi,
Seems to be a great Add-On coming near to something (simple) I'm looking after since (years) I use TB, namely having messages in the Send-Folder initially with the flag UnRead.

FYI: I didn't try the AddOn as from the description it doesn't have the feature I'm looking after

Now, when I want to follow-up a sent message, I have to go to the Send-Folder, search for the message (my Send-folder is sorted UnRead/Read + Date) and mark the message Unread.

A variant of this AddOn could greatly do the job : when sending ask for Unread/Read and done.

Would be great !
