Tab Mix Plus

tab mix plus for thunderbird? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It would be very nice, if you could port tab mix plus to Thunderbird. It lacks its features.For example, if you have to folders opened, then open mail form the first folder and then close it, you do not return to the first folder, but you come to the second one.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.1.5.2.1-signed). 

FireTray

very nice, but can be improved Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It is very nice (especially, because of showing new mail icon properly!), but there is something to improve.

1. It would be very convenient, if icon options contained an options "Click to move to current desktop and activate" and "Click to activate and change desktop". The matter is that by default a click hides a window, when it is open, or restores it, if it is hidden. Thus, if you want to have the window before your eyes, you need one or two clicks depending on the situation, or scroll the wheel twice (down and then up). It would be much more convenient to click once independently of the initial state of the window to make the window appear before your eyes (depending of personal taste: either by moving the window to the current desktop or by changing the desktop to the window).

2. The default icons are not scaled automatically in the system tray (KDE4). With some icon themes (crystalsvg) they turn out to be too small. I replaced them with custom icons (from /usr/lib??/thunderbird or /usr/lib??/firerfox directories), but in the case of firefox it initially scales too large, and I need to force it to disappear and reappear to make it be properly scaled. Probably, some interaction with system tray is broken.

Thunderbird Conversations

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

There are two problems with the add-on:
1. You need to press Tab or click by the mouse before using PageUp/PageDown in a message.
2. It overrides the extra references added by the arXiv add-on.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.7).

New Mail Attention

blinking when you leave the TB window Rated 4 out of 5 stars

After the first start of TB in an X session, the New Mail Attention extension forces to attract attention when you just leave the TB window. So I need to restart TB. Sorry, I have not found another place for a bug report.
(OpenSUSE, KDE3.5, TB 7.0.1, New Mail Attention 1.2.1)

arXiv

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

That's what I need. Nearly perfect. The only disadvantage is that it opens an empty page in Firefox, when downloading PDF.

LaTeX It!

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

A nice addon. The only shortcoming is that if you have had a mistake in a formula and already pressed the "LaTeX It!" button, you cannot edit and recompile the initial formula. The only thing you can do is to erase the picture and retype the formula, but if the recipient only reads the plain text format, he will obtain a confusing combination of the old version of the LaTeX formula and the new one.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.1). 

Password Exporter

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Well, but encrypted export does not work.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2). 

Saved Password Editor

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent, especially for the pages that block automatic password saving.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.8). 

FireTray

Missing features Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Good work, but there are two missing features:
1. Left-click on the icon does not restore the windows (unlike all the KDE applications).
2. It does not inform me that the "newest" messages (marked by stars in the Thunderbird) has come. I have a great need of this feature, since I often delay reading some new messages (which may be important, but not urgent), but I still need to be notified about newer messages (which may be more urgent). Since I am not sitting near the computer permanently, I may skip the beep or pop-up notification, but I have to know about it just by throwing a glance at the display, without keeping in mind the initial number of new messages. It could be realized, for example, by changing the color of the icon, once new mail arrives. (This feature existed in the "New Mail Icon" add-on, which seems to be currently unsupported and does not work with TB3.)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.3). 

New Mail Icon

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It is a great add-on! I used it for long time with TB2 and now I miss it with TB3 badly!
