My Reviews

Allow HTML Temp

Great add-on, hope message header button appears again one day Rated 4 out of 5 stars

My default is plain text mails. Because many others often send html mails, this add-on is very useful to view them without changing my default reading style. To load the remote contents, you've still to click on "show remote content", which requires another click on a different location on screen.

Since the merger between Thunderbird and Thunderbird esr (24.2.0) and up I miss the message header button of this add-on, only the other tool bar buttons are available to me yet.

Organize Search Engines

Folders dragged occasionally in itsself are lost! Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I used this very nice add-on for years now.

Organizing the search entries in subfolders is a great help for me. Renaming a search engine is also a great feature.

But... CAUTION!!!
When you occasionally drag a folder into itsself - it's lost forever with all of its items!!! There is no chance from the GUI to undo that!!!
This happens only rarely when clicking... but it happens!!!

When you've made a backup of "organize-search-engines.rdf" in your profile folder you may restore this file after you've closed firefox. But only in case you backup this file frequently.

Hope the author wil fix that "deadlock" use. Then I will return using it immediately!

Good luck!

Showcase

Showcase 0.9.5.8 works great with Firefox 10 (ESR) and 11 by just disabling its cache option Rated 5 out of 5 stars

After updating from Firefox 3.6.28 to 10 (ESR) I got many crashes (also for Firefox 11) and after a view hours I was so disappointed that I just restored my system from the hard drive images I made before.

But I read Firefox 3.6.28 is end-of-life and therefore I tried Firefox 10 (ESR) again and enabled one plugin after the other and located that Showcase caused these many crashes.

I asked Josep for help and he told me this is a Firefox bug, NOT a Showcase issue.

To make Showcase working fine with Firefox 10 (ESR) too, you just go to Showcase options, select the advanced tab and DISABLE the topmost cache option.
Enjoy!
