PriceBlink - Automatic Price Comparison & Coupons

PriceBlink Toolbar Icon can't be removed in FF29 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

PriceBlink doesn't always find me the best deal, but it finds enough deals to justify using it. However, with Firefox 29 now having removed a toolbar, space for icons is at a premium, and I decided to use the Firefox "Customize" feature for the toolbars to remove the PriceBlink icon, and that seemed to work.... until I reopened Firefox again, and the icon reappeared. As it turns out, the icon can't be removed in Firefox 29. PLEASE tell me this is a bug, and not intentional.... before I have to delete PriceBlink. I would normally rate PriceBlink with 4 stars, but it's a 3 star addon (and gone) if this can't be fixed. VERY annoying.

LavaFox V2

Theme of Choice Leaves No Choice Rated 4 out of 5 stars

LavaFox V2 Blue and Red have been my themes of choice since first released. I've stuck with them through thick and thin. That makes it particularly difficult to leave this theme behind now, but with the release of FF29, I can no longer use FF the way that it is most productive for me if LavaFox remains my theme. With FF29, Mozilla made a design change to the toolbars, removing the Add-ons toolbar completely, and making the "Tabs on top" of the address bar permanent, with even the "about:config" option unable to change it. That change has left a whole lot of folks baffled, myself included. It feels counter intuitive, and senseless to remove the option. Additionally, with the LavaFox theme, especially if you have several tabs open, it detracts from the aesthetics of the theme considerably IMO. Fortunately, we are left with an option to use the Classic Theme Restorer add-on, and among other things, reverse the toolbars. Unfortunately, there is a bug in LavaFox, or the author's decision to not support that option, and there is no option available within LavaFox itself to do so, which would have been ideal.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2.1).

Download Statusbar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Love it, miss it, hope you'll fix it.... soon. Tried the rest, this is the best (by far), nothing else will do.

Damn you Mozilla for breaking this extension!!!

Linkificator

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Linkificator is an excellent replacement alternative for Linkification. A great convenience, and works as advertised. Thanks MarkaPola!

Lightning

Lightning Striken Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Without a doubt, Lightning is nearly as essential as Thunderbird itself in my day. The integration of Lightning and Thunderbird is an unbeatable combination. Thank you for maintaining and improving Lightning.

FEBE

Indispensible Goodness Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have backed up and restored everything from an individual component of my profile, to my entire profile, more times than I can count. FEBE has NEVER failed me! I use Firefox on 3 PC's, home, work, and play. FEBE Is a very convenient tool for syncing my bookmarks, add-ons, and/or my entire profile on all three PC's. It only takes a few minutes to keep all 3 up to date. There is an active forum for FEBE support should it be needed, a very well documented web site, and Chuck Baker has always been very responsive. FEBE is VERY highly recommended!

Awesome Screenshot Plus - Capture, Annotate & More

A Five Star Add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

In my opinion, after trying all of the alternatives with the functionality of this add-on, this is the best in it's catagory, and it's features are superior to it's competitors.My Firefox, did update via the built in update notice, however the update was dated Feb. 17, and the update took place March 6. THIS IS NOT THE AUTHORS FAULT, AND HE DOES NOT DESERVE THE BLAME, OR THE DEDUCTION OF STARS. It's a Mozilla issue. This add-on deserves 5 stars. It's very well written, does what it claims, is intuitive, and again, does it better than any of it's competition.

Contacts Sidebar

Upgrade TB with this indispensable Add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Contacts Sidebar will quickly become an indispensable Add-on, placing Address Book access and features in a sidebar on TB's main window. I configured mine to display contacts, along with their mobile, home & biz phone numbers in columns. You can adjust the spacing between columns to make the sidebar compact. Double clicking on a contact will open a new Message Window, adding another means, and making it that much more convenient to write new email to your contact.

Unfortunately, this Add-on has not been updated on this page for some time, and for some unknown reason. The Add-on is alive and well on the authors web page in the form of "Pre-releases".

<a style="color:#006620; background-color:#fff9ab" class="linkification-ext" href="http://extensions.sanjer.nl/index.php?page=tb_cs_prerelease" title="Linkification: http://extensions.sanjer.nl/index.php?page=tb_cs_prerelease">http://extensions.sanjer.nl/index.php?page=tb_cs_prerelease</a>

I would certainly encourage the author to place an update here on the official Add-on page.

Be a little patient for Jeroen to catch up on major TB version updates, it's well worth it!

Lightning

Lightning is Indispensable Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Lightning is the single most important addition to Thunderbird's productivity. It has become indispensable in my daily work, and organizational ability. Despite the occasional bump in the road, the development team continues to improve, fix, and add features. I look forward to the future of Lightning, and thank the developers for sharing it with the community.

Delete Site History

A Useful Privacy Enhancement Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Delete Site History offers a convenient way to edit your history instead of manually deleting each instance of a site, or deleting your history as a whole.

Cye3s, please take a couple of minutes to update your Add-on version so that folks who don't know how to edit the RDF file can enjoy the benefits of this extension.

EditEmailSubject

At Long Last Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have been hoping for the inclusion of, or an extension that would add this feature to Thunderbird, for a VERY long time. This is very much appreciated. THANKS!!!

Works Great Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks for rescuing this extension from the abyss.

eCleaner

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This Add-on definitely fills a need. It would be very helpful if the eCleaner window could be resized by the user, or at least made larger for those having a large collection of Add-ons. I look forward to continued development.

Zippy Extension Packager

A convenient tool & possible EME replacement Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is a very convenient tool that fills a few voids in FF. It could potentially fill the void of Extension Manager Extended (abandoned) as well. Please consider providing the extension ID and location within the Add-ons Manager view, eliminating the need to right click and bring up a new page, unless an XPI creation is needed. Thanks for providing this extension!

LavaFox V2-Blue

A Masterpiece Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent!! LavaFox V1-Blue is a fully skinned theme, with great compatibility, and in a word, beautiful. If I could give it 6 stars, I would. Thanks Zigboom! Great imagination, and great work.

Unified Search

Nicely improved search functions Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have been hoping for improvements in TB's search function for quite a while. The is a significant improvement in search usability. THANK YOU!

A nice cosmetic improvement would be a searchbar that expands as you type, similar to the function of the Firefox extension "Searchbar Autosizer".

Contacts (old, follow website link below for current addon)

Address book integration Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I'm giving this a 4 star rating because I believe that it is well written, and it's development is in it's infancy, allowing that goals are in flux. However, without Address Book integration, I don't see this extension being useful for my needs, or my business needs. With integration, this would be a STELLAR addition to Thunderbird.

Search for Sender

Two options are better than one. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is outstanding. Thanks! There is another similar extension, but it can only select messages by author, and not by subject. With both options, all of my needs are covered.
