My Reviews

Simple Mail

Had ceased working in FF45 - FIXED !!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

THE NEW VERSION WORKS THANK YOU!
This is a text book example of why it's so important to support developers by contributing -- Simple Mail is so essential to Firefox that it's the kind of thing you wish was packaged with the program.

I had posted this review:
I don't know if the culprit is v45 or the latest Java update (I did both in 1 afternoon) but NO version (even the most recent, available elsewhere) works now. Just sits there like a sleepy snail.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.86.6.1-signed).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Terrible Add-On Rated 1 out of 5 stars

1. This may not save the page showing on screen -- it saves the parent if you're viewing through a frame. Which makes it pretty much useless.
2. It requires a PAID ACCOUNT if you want to adjust ANY parameters.

This does NOT belong on the official Mozilla site.

Simple Mail

This has stopped working Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I loved this add-on. Now it doesn't work any more.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.86.6.1-signed). 

Pushbullet

Limited Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The Firefox interface for this software is limited. I wanted to be able to send/receive texts in Firefox when someone sends them to my phone. The Pushbullet PR says this is possible. It really isn't possible yet. (The desktop app might do it -- have not checked yet -- but the add-on doesn't do much that I can't accomplish in any one of a dozen other ways.)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (179.1-signed). 

Simple Week View

Not there yet Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Nice if it worked. I will update to 5 stars if the developer can correct the issues Michael Woffenden described in his 3/3/2015 review.

Gmail Manager

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This was once the best, lightweight, efficient extension for gmail. As of FF33 it is useless.

Today's messages

Sluggish, Not superior to setting a search Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This is a well-executed add-on, but it bogs down when you have many incoming messages. I long ago created pre-set searches and saved as virtual folders, and they reside in the folder pane; if you don't like that approach, this works, but it will also require additional screen real estate -- displaying the Quick Filter toolbar. I think creative programmers should be encouraged and this was creatively programmed; however, it doesn't do much for me. On the other hand, I will be watching for whatever new idea this developer creates in the future.

MacOSX Theme (Firefox 4+)

Still Works OK with editing Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Still works if you change the install.rdf file to allow v23 (details on how to do this are elsewhere on Mozilla - basically open the *.xpi file with WinZip, open the *.rdf with Notepad, edit the version, save all, install).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.8.1). 

Telephone Message

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This no longer works; the Send button does not send regardless of making the change described above.

PLUGIN NO LONGER BEING MAINTAINED

Good & Lightweight Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is a nice, simple, elegant add-on that doesn't bloat TBird. I have 2 suggestions for you to consider should you get to updating/enhancing: (1) Allow the user to leave some fields blank (e.g. sometimes you don't have a number handy but know the person can look it up); and, (2) Offer the ability to send as plain text or as plain+HTML.

Highlighter

update - this DOES work now Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This works fine (TB11). Thank you for this!
Old review:
This does not work on my PC: Win 7 Pro / Tbird 3.1.7
Like the earlier extension designed to e-mail telephone messages, this is a great idea but does not yet work.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.2). 

Chromatasks

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Sadly, this doesn't work with Thunderbird 3.1 so I've had to remove it. Quite useful (if it could be updated).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2). 

XNote++

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

My accidental update to TBird 3.1 ruined me -- I can't get my notes back -- if ever an update was needed, this is the time!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2.0pre1). 

Select Address Book Text

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Excellent add-on. Would love to see a right-click -> copy entry function.
BTW, I too have TBird 3.0.4 but unlike Tom Hubert I cannot use right-click to copy a contact's entry from the address book. So: Tom, what am I doing wrong? (Or: What are you doing right?)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.2). 

SmartSave Thunderbird Extension

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

PLEASE update this to work with the latest version of Thunderbird! I too will contribute. This is the kind of extension that ought to be part of the basic installation (& you deserve compensation for the good work).

AddressBookTab

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is SO good it should be part of the basic Thunderbird installation package! The only flaw (VERY minor) involves the Address book's menu bar when using the tab: depending on the skin being used, the menu items may appear greyed out even though they're active.

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

pdfit

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Nice add-on -- causes no hiccups & grabs the screen. However, be aware that:
1. This does not work with frames (e.g. if a site has a left frame navigation this will grab one frame or the other but not both).
2. The PDF file is VERY Low resolution (as in "100% ugly").
3. It always grabs scrollbars as well as the rest of the screen.

Mangan for Thunderbird

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

If this could be made to work with Tbird 3 it would be a serious candidate for replacing the (sadly!) dormant Modern Modoki theme for Thunderbird.

Modern Modoki for Thunderbird

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Since "upgrading" to Thunderbird 3 recently I now regret the move -- its appearance is clunky and I cannot remedy the situation with my favorite theme, Modern Modoki. I think Mozilla's default theme should be Modern Modoki & they should pay the developer a comfortable fee for licensing it as such!

Modern Modoki for FF 3.6

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Some time ago, I had made a manual "update" (altered the rdf file to permit later FireFox versions). Now I have an officially sanctioned update! My only recommended change is to alter the scrollbar thumb to a matching lozenge rather than leaving it as a rectangle. (I'd even make one & send it to you if you like.)
