Adds the ability to create and edit entries in the password manager.
Collector's Note Managing usernames and password changes for email account logins, takes awhile to "convince" Thunderbird to "edit" password/username or login details. One has to delete a username/password combination and start from scratch to "train" Thunderbird to understand the updated username/password version. This is quite a time consuming and frustrating exercise, especially after failing for the 5th time. With the Saved Password Editor add-on, the process of managing username/password combinations is a breeze, just edit/delete already saved username/password. A handy add-on when you are frequently required to update your username/password list.
Various enhancements for build-in "master password" (MP)
-Locks master security device on demand or after specified time
-Prompts for MP on browser startup
-Suppresses all or duplicate MP prompts
-Locks up entire application or individual windows
Collector's Note The 'Master Password+' extension is essential when one wants to restrict unauthorized access to Thunderbird. This kind of restriction becomes a necessity when Thunderbird's functions are extended to accommodate project management, general administrative tasks and client record keeping. Especially in case of the latter, it is necessary to secure email content from preying eyes. The 'Master Password+' extension "locks" Thunderbird when not actively uses after a predetermined period of time. This sometimes is a bit of a schlep when - e.g. compiling documents from email content - because 'Master Password+' locks Thunderbird down and you have to login to continue using Thunderbird. But it is a small price to pay for keeping sensitive email contents private.
Everyday note-taking solution.
Collector's Note The 'Notepad(QuickFox)' extension is a useful add-on that adds a notepad function to Thunderbird. Apart from note taking, the notes can also be shared with others via Dropbox for instance. In the AltanaESP system context, we specifically use QuickFox Notes to share general email productivity tips and tricks.
Contact Tabs enhances Thunderbird to give you quick access to all your contacts directly from Thunderbird's main window: Use the powerful search field to find your contacts and open them in a new tab for viewing and editing.
Facilitates handling of duplicates in your address book(s). Allow to search and remove similar contacts.
Collector's Note When frequently synchronizing address books and/or importing contact data, it is inevitable, that somewhere along the line, contacts get duplicated and/or not always updated as it should. If that happens, it could take hours to get rid of duplicated contact entries. The Duplicate Contact Manager add-on is essential to quickly and easily delete duplicate contact entries. An extremely useful feature of this add-on, is that it could be set to search for duplicate contact entries in either a specific address book or across a number of address books.
Nautipolis for Thunderbird: High-quality, solid theme based on icons from art.gnome.org.
Fully compatible with from 5.0 upto latest nightly build (currently 27.0a1). Full support for Lightning/calendar.
Collector's Note Nautipolis for Thunderbird is the preferred theme for a better and more defined layout or display of email panes and toolbars.
It adds a button that can be put in toolbars and that open the addressbook in a new tab
Collector's Note A nifty little add-on, especially when you have a number of different address books to deal with. In such cases, the AddressBookTab add-on allows you to open different address books in different tabs, which makes it much more convenient to update or maintain address book entries.
Add a compact menu button to the navigation toolbar, and hide the menu bar.
Adds extension options dialogs to the Tools or Titlebar menu and includes toolbar icon.
Collector's Note It is frequently required to change, update, adapt or tweak certain Thunderbird extension settings. This can be a cumbersome task when you need to adjust extension setting through the Add-ons Manager. The Extension Options Menu add-on allows you to select and list the extensions that you most often need to adjust, providing you with quick and easy way to do this kind of extension maintenance tasks.
This 15KB restartless add-on will add a "File" -> "Restart" menu item and a ctrl/cmd + alt + r hotkey to restart Firefox or Seamonkey.
Collector's Note Not an often used add-on and function. However, it is sometimes required to restart Thunderbird for changes made to take effect. Shutting down and starting Thunderbird is a time consuming exercise. The Restartless Restart add-on, merely automate the process by powering down and restart Thunderbird again with the necessary changes made and restore all displays to the state it was before powering down.
Keep your menus in check by filtering out items you never use.
Collector's Note The email right click menu contains plenty of menu items, of which only a view is used on a frequent basis. This extension allows one to filter the email right click context menu to display only those menu items that is either used frequently and/or most often. Which makes the email context menu much more efficient to use.
A combined Get/Send-Button and a popup menu with additional functions.
You may want to use it together with the following Add-ons:
* Send Later Button (by me / Alexander Ihrig)
* Send Later (by jikamens)
Collector's Note The MagicSLR add-on is a nice to have and very useful feature. Especially when you have to deal with a number of different email accounts. This add-on place a customisable send/receive button on the toolbar for easier sending and receiving of emails from different accounts.
Adds an Empty Deleted button to the Toolbar
Quickly and easy way to inform someone of a missed call. This addon allows you to email the person your passing the message onto, collecting their email address from your address book, with a collection of ready made messages.
Collector's Note The 'Telephone Message' extension doesn't add real functional value to Thunderbird. It is only a missed call form template which, on completion, will assist in compiling an email that can be send with details pertaining the missed call. Handy in the sense that it makes compiling and sending "missed call" details less of a nuisance. 'Telephone Message' isn't "fully" automated, one has to manually close (cancel) the dialogue box when the task is completed. Other than that, quite useful at times.
