My Reviews

Show Profile

really useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars

FF would do well to have something like this built in

FYI - I use many profiles in many versions release through to nightly, and I can use this in all at the moment except Developer edition - it doesn't show up as available for that

Disable Add-on Compatibility Checks

not working in daily etc Rated 4 out of 5 stars

still a good idea but TB seems to have changed the names of the compatibility check keys in about:config - I managed to switch off by going in a toggling also the keys with "saved" in them...this could be a drag to do for every daily update though!


a must for archiving old data Rated 5 out of 5 stars

this is really essential if you want to keep your profile folders to a "reasonable" size - e.g. if you want to take your data on a stick etc. It allows you to move old ( I'm talking > 4 years old!) data to another folder so you can then easily sync your data with your usb
stick and carry with you. THANKS SO MUCH
(edit:: will also testi with earlybird and daily updates and see if it work on them as well...

QuickFolders (Tabbed Folders)

great add-on and support Rated 5 out of 5 stars

in conjunction with virtual folders this is an invaluable add-on. What I have really been impressed by is the speed of bug-fixing especially when "bugs" are introduced as a result of TB daily updates - essentially some changes in TB making the add-on no longer compatible. This has happened recently several updates in a row and the author has quickly turned around with pre-release versions to deal with the new TB code

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.11). 

Attachment Reminder

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I found this handy when it was working but it has stopped working for IMAP from ThunderBird 17 on. IMAP send hangs the mail compose windows

Remove Duplicate Messages

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've tried both this and "remove duplicate messages (alternate)" .This addon works best because it allows more fields to be checked. It finds many more dupes than alternate, and because you can check the message body too, you can be positive that the results are correct and just hit the delete dupes button when the results window appears.

FYI Thorsten: I am currently using TB daily (24.x) , TB EarlyBird and TB 17.x and it works on all of these

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.13). 

Color Folders

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

this is great. however I am currently also using earlybird & daily and it is not working on those, so as it stands it won't work on a future release of Thunderbird that comes from EarlyBird

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0). 

Add-on Compatibility Reporter

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

this is currently working in ThunderBird daily (nightly build channel) . [edit - sorry should have said I have disabled add-on compatibility checking] very useful to allow add-ons to continue to be available for latest builds. However I can see no way to cancel or correct a report. I need to update for a couple of add-ons, does anyone know how to do this in TB, or even if there is the possibility to do it online

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.1-signed.1-signed). 

Forecastfox Weather

all good Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have no reason to give other than 100% for this. I am using FF 16.0.1 on Windows 7 64bit and have no problems as others have reported. switched to london etc and all working as I want it now. very timely as igoogle is being retired @ end of month and that was my prev. weather forecast tool

Theme Font & Size Changer

LIFE SAVER...well eye saver! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

THANK YOU SO MUCH. I was going mental trying to find a solution to small fonts on FF & TB - changing windows font size opens a whole other can of worms. no longer having to squint is sooo nice!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.0.1-signed). 


Rated 5 out of 5 stars

My feedback is nothing but positive. This is a great add-on and very intuitive. Important when you just quickly want to add a reminder to an email if you're in a rush. The fact that it seamlessly works on FF as well is a bonus.

Also I liked the fact that you can specify a seperate file location for the reminderfox file - means it can easily be shared/synced between computers
