Getting the icon to appear Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I was able to get the icon to appear for SeaMonkey by replacing chrome.manifest with the one from version 2.0.

SeaMonkey Gray Modern

Internal name Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Version 1.1 of this theme had 3 internal names set. One was in the chrome.manifest and two were in install.rdf. It does not work if you do it that way. The internal name has to be consistent between those two files, and there is no point in putting more than one internal name line in install.rdf. That file works better with a different format anyway. The first time I modified it, I copied the format from the theme Early Blue, and that still works.

Force Content-Type

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Why not make this extension available to SeaMonkey users? It works in SeaMonkey if one can get it to install. There is a converter now which was able to modify the install files to do that.

SeaMonkey Gray Modern

Needs internal name Rated 3 out of 5 stars

There needs to be an internal name set up in install.rdf and chrome.manifest, otherwise it turns into a clone of SeaMonkey Modern when one updates the application. This is what I did in install.rdf to give it one:
<em:internalName>graymodern</em:internalName>
In chrome.manifest, I put the name into each line that begins with "skin"; for example:
skin messenger graymodern chrome/modern/skin/modern/messenger/

SeaMonkey Gray Modern

Toolbar buttons Rated 3 out of 5 stars

How about making the backgrounds for the toolbar buttons transparent? I think they would look better.

Flashblock

Per tab session only? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Why is Flashblock now working per tab session and not per element? If I open a new page at the same site with a new video on the same tab, the placeholder does not appear. I have to open the new page in a new tab for the block to happen. It used not to work that way.

Needs bumping up Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This extension still works. I had to bump up the max version for the installer to get it to install in SeaMonkey 2.21. That is all the updating it needs so far.

User Agent Switcher

Bump up to SeaMonkey 2.21 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This extension works with SeaMonkey 2.21, but I had to bump up the max version to get it to install.
It would be nice if the list of fake user agents included the other parameters that can be entered into the editor other than just the UA string for the browser's header.

RefControl

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This works in SeaMonkey 2.21, so why not list it as compatible with it? I had to bump up the max version in the install file to get it to install.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.16.1-signed). 

CS Lite Mod

Button needs a tooltip Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The button really needs a tooltip to identify it. I was able to add one, but it would be nice to have one built in.

Click to play switch

This does work in SeaMonkey Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Click-to-play was changed completely in Firefox, but not in SeaMonkey. Fortunately, on-demand plugins are working the same way in SeaMonkey (per item).
This extension still does exactly what it says it does: it toggles click-to-play and reloads the page.

Modify Headers

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Why was the target app setup for SeaMonkey disabled in install.rdf? This extension works in SeaMonkey. I removed the comment markers from the install file, bumped up the max version, and got it to install.

Click to play switch

Use in SeaMonkey Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Why not set this extension to install into SeaMonkey as well as Firefox? It works in SeaMonkey, but I had to tweak the install.rdf file and the chrome.manifest to get it to install.

BlockSite

Spyware! Forget it. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This add-on now wants to force users to allow information about their activities to be sent out. That is spyware.
Luckily, there are two other extensions that can do the same kind of thing and which are not spyware. One is "Blocksite Plus" (under the circumstances, perhaps an unfortunate name choice) and the other is "URL n Extension Block".

What's wrong with the checkboxes? Rated 2 out of 5 stars

in Firefox 15, the checkboxes in the clear history window from the Tools menu are completely dead.

Update: I finally found the cause of the problem. The sanitize box apparently has a listbox, and the listbox.css file did not list any checkmark images, so they did not appear.

Rise of the Tools

To the rescue! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I really did not like Thunderbird's arbitrarily moving the tabs above the toolbar without providing any way to turn that off. Rise of the Tools comes to the rescue and provides the means of getting the appearance of the window back to what I consider normal.

Validation? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The validation for HTML seems to be slower than before?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.9.1-signed). 

Metal + glass

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I think the text on that grey background is very hard to read. If it were bright yellow, it would be easy to read. Disabled items could have red text, which would still be readable but would not stand out so much.
The screenshot does not make it clear what the black area in the window is. Is that a tab or something else?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.14). 

PitchDark for TB

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great. Please, please, update this for Thunderbird 3.1.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0.0). 

UnPlug

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This version does not work. The previous version would give a whole window full of links with different quality of videos on YouTube. This one gives nothing.
