Folder Pane View Switcher

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

What the heck were they thinking when they removed a most basic feature such like easy and mouse-acrobatics free folder view switching from Thunderbird? How is one supposed to cope with a more complex folder structure and multiple accounts? Seems the people at Mozilla recently try their best to work *against* a positive user experience...

Thank you for this add-on. This is a must for people that still want order and oversight in their mail client, even with more then a few mail accounts and folders.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.7). 

FT DeepDark

Nice dark theme Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I really like the this dark theme. It's plain and simple and unobtrusive, yet beautiful to look at, and from what I've seen so far, everything is well readable. :)

EDIT: Whoa, that was quick! Not even a day after my review a new version was out. The issue described below seems to be gone in version 2.9.5. Thank you, steva! :-)


I immediately stumbled upon one issue, though:

I use a multi-row tab bar via Tab Mix Plus, normally set at up to 3 tab rows visible at a time. Most of the time, I have a lot of open tabs, so I usually have tabs in more than 3 rows, and scroll through the rows via Tab Mix Plus.

Now, with this theme, when switching between the tabs from an upper row to a tab on the row that is currently shown as the lowermost row, the tab bar jumps upwards one row. When the lowermost displayed row is indeed the last row, it will even display only two tab rows with tabs plus one completely empty tab bar row. This jumpy behavior is very annoying, especially when searching for a certain tab, as they don't remain in place that way.

I counter-checked with another extension and with the FF default theme, where this issue did not occur, so I'm pretty certain it is something in the theme that causes it.

For troubleshooting purposes: I'm on FF9.0.1 on an Ubuntu 10.04 Linux machine. I hope my explanation is clear enough to recreate the issue for bug fixing... Please drop me a note if you need more info, steva. :)

I would love to see that fixed. :) Then this theme would probably be a keeper.

XNote++

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love this extension, thank you for porting it to TB3. :-)

For those of you who have unreadable white text on the yellow notes (e.g. due to a Thunderbird theme like PitchDark, which uses white font color), I figured out a fix.

Add the following to your userChrome.css file (in TB's profile folder (see http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_folder_-_Thunderbird for info on that), there in the subfolder chrome - create file and folder if necessary):

/* Xnote - set text color to black */
.boite-de-texte, #titre
{
color: black !important;
}

This will set all text in the notes boxes to black.

Hope that helps.

ColorfulTabs

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Unfortunately, tab color settings will be lost after restarting firefox, when the session restore feature of Tab Mix Plus is activated. I wish it would work with TMP...

When using Firefox' built-in session management, it appears to work fine, though. As I'm using ColorfulTabs only in my secondary Firefox profile, that's good enough for me for now.

Other than that it seems to work nicely and usefully.

Docky Unread Count

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

lpiepiora uploaded versions 0.5 and 0.6 today. :-)

So far version 0.6 works fine for me on Ubuntu 10.04 with docky 2.1.0 bzr r1620 ppa (todays new version) and Thunderbird 3.0.6.

Click on "View all versions" to download them and give it a try. ;-)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3). 

QuickNote

Re: ADD-ON TO ADD NOTE TO EVERY MAIL Rated 5 out of 5 stars

(Please ignore my rating, I wasn't allowed to post without it. This is not a review, but rather a reply to raajsaab. Apparently, this isn't supported by this forum.)

@raajsaab: An extension named "XNote" provides the functionality you seek: https://addons.mozilla.org/de/thunderbird/addon/3093/
It's OK for Thunderbird version 2.0.0.*, I've been using it for a couple of months now on several machines and OSes.

There's also a version by another author for TB 3 based on the old one ( https://addons.mozilla.org/de/thunderbird/addon/64758/ ), but it has not yet been reviewed by Mozilla.
Also there is "XNote Plus" ( https://addons.mozilla.org/de/thunderbird/addon/5730/ ), which hasn't been reviewed either. I don't know the difference between the latter two, though.

Hope that helps.
Regards,
R.
