I used this addon for a long time and it recently added task synchronization support too. But now it doesn't allow me to directly add my google calendar using "New Calendar -> On the Network -> Google Calendar", because it conflicts with the other addon "Thunderbirthday"!
There are 2 solutions:
1. Disable thunderbirthday, Add your calendars, Reenable Thunderbirthday when finished.
2.What Shelku said:
2.1. New Network Calendar
2.2. Format = iCalendar (ICS), Location = Private address in ICAL format (NOT XML FORMAT)
2.3. Restart TB
2.4. This addon will automatically detect your readonly ICS calendar and will ask if you want to upgrade it to a r/w google calendar
I wonder why Thunderbird doesn't have this feature by default. I saw "import" under "tools" menu, but don't expect that it only be able to import address-books.
But using this addon we can also import/export mails/folders as mbox, eml and other formats.
Although TB supports templates itself, it can not customize those templates regarding each recipient. But this addon does it automatically, based on recipient's contact info in address-book or a custom-defined CSV file.
Duty of this addon is completely different from "QuickText" addon. However I still expect more features from this addon!
It seems that Mozilla and its users are going toward merging the calendar system to Thunderbird. This addon is their main effort for achieving this.
It can easily sync with Google Calendar and other web calendars by default. But there're still some works remaining like the ability to sync Lightning tasks with Google tasks.
Also TB has Google Calendar integration by default using CalDAV protocol but after searching through web I found out that this addon has some little more features and is easier to setup.
Plus this addon provided Google Calendar support before Google support CalDAV itself.
I gave it 4 star because it doesn't support Google Tasks syncing with Lightnings' tasks.
This addon is the best TB addon ever, without doubt! If I want to donate some addons someday, this would be first.
Using this addon I can easily track my conversations and realize in response to what email I received/sent this email, without the need to go between Inbox & Sent folders repetitively. It's preferences is also very versatile. For example I don't like its default message body font tweak and I could easily cancel that to original TB font.
Using this addon you can see your threads easily, both in threads pane and in message pane. Plus you can see the thread messages in new tab both as part of the conversation using this addon and separately in the traditional view.
This addon is wonderful. It's a total replacement for default template feature of Thunderbird and improved that idea a lot.
I was thinking about another great feature you can add to this addon:
Autocompletion similar to when you are writing a similar/exact text in a cell in LibreOffice Calculator/MS Excel. In this feature when you're typing similar text the suggested text would be shown in opposite color highlight (white text in black bg) and user can select the suggested text by pressing Enter, or just ignore it by continuing his typing.
I'm using this addon to specify what time it's in my recipient's place and whether he's asleep or not?(so I can guess why he's not replied yet)
I've other ideas which can be implemented in this or a new addon:
- Showing time of a received email in sender's local time
- Showing a tooltip when hover over a contact in which you can see his local time (good for sending reply)
- Doing all of these automatically!
Should be implemented in Thunderbird itself.
Very good enhancement for Thunderbird password management. Actually this feature should be built-in into Thunderbird itself.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.6.4).
This addon is great, but there're many potential in improving it even more. Adding a preferences dialog specific to this addon options is one of them.
Some other useful statistics and usage patterns can also be added to.
This addon gives a very beautiful visual representation of summary of any account or folder. But There's only a little bug. In default account central pane there're 2 options "Search messages" and "Manage message filters" which can not be reached after installing this addon. Please out a button to these options under advanced features and your addon would be perfect.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.1).
The folder pane coloring is very good but thread pane coloring decreases the readability. But I still need some coloring hint in thread pane to still inform me of what account I'm in.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.5).
Having a S/MIME certificate is hard but having a GnuPG keypair is easy. On the other hand using OpenPGP signing without using PGP/MIME messes the email message for those who doesn't have OpenPGP compatible client.
So the best part of this add-on is "OpenPGP Signing + PGP/MIME"
Its message tracking idea is very good, but it's very messed up and confuses the user. Its diagram is also placed in a tiny box which is hard to use and see. Additionally it approximately slows Thunderbird.
A good improvement can be moving the diagram to vertical style and combine it with something like conversations. You can put those diagrams vertically at the left or right side of the conversation messages for easy tracking.
This addon is also one of those should be implemented natively to Thunderbird bcuz of its great necessary functionality.
Actually it's the Thunderbird's task to ask master-password only once, but because of some bugs it doesn't.
Your addon fixed this. Thank you.
I was merging some of my duplicate contacts when I saw that some of my contacts have more than 2 email addresses.
Please add a "Third Email" & "Forth Email" fields when finding and managing duplicates in Duplicate Contact Manager addon.
I get my gmail contact photos using gContactSyc addon and that addon saves those contact images somewhere on the disk.
Now my contacts have images but this addon doesn't show them. It always shows the default image only!
