Cleo for Thunderbird? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

CLEO rocks even in the time of Sync!
But there is NO, NADA, NULL alternatives for Thunderbird atm fmpov!

I would be really more than happy to see anything for Thunderbird like CLEO.

Support site forum login registration is messed up Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Chuck, you concluded your "About Add-on" description by saying the following for CLEO 6.0.

Quote: "NOTE: If you are getting a message complaining about not having the correct version of FEBE installed (and you know the correct version is installed) see this post in the support forum."

I had FEBE 8.2 and was having this problem, above, so went to your website for CLEO and installed 6.0.1. Restarting Firefox seems to indicate that the problem is corrected, for the warning about CLEO not working until ... isn't appearing anymore. But, I checked the CLEO options and don't have one for not checking the version of FEBE, as you described in your first post of the forum thread for the problem quoted, above. So, I just wanted to inform you of this and then see what there'd be for reply.

Well, your forum login registration rejects GMail accounts that have usernames containing a period or dot in the username portion preceding the @ sign or symbol, saying that GMail accounts can't have these periods or dots. Well, mine always has and it's the email address used for Mozilla as well as several other websites. They don't have any problem with periods in GMail usernames.

I have two other e-mail accounts, one with Yahoo! and the other with the ISP I use. The latter e-mail address has a period in the username while the Yahoo! one doesn't, but I don't want to use it for your forum. The Yahoo! account is for stuff I don't have and don't want sent to my other two accounts, both of which thankfully receive far less.

I don't know if the reason your website refuses GMail usernames containing periods is due to your own personal preference, for whatever reasons you might have for that, or if it's because your login registration software is mis-coded, or ...; but, if it's due to your own preference, say, then I wonder what on Earth the reason could be. What could possibly be wrong with using periods as separators for different parts of usernames for any types of Internet accounts? Many people use periods and underscore or underbar characters for separating parts of usernames in order to make them easier to read, say.

With the GMail account, the period was added by me, but in the case of the ISP, it's the company that included the period.

I don't want to use Yahoo! for using your support forums for your Firefox add-ons and don't think that it's possible to create a second GMail account for free. I once tried to do that and it didn't work, anyway.

And I didn't want to post this comment here but couldn't find an e-mail contact link anywhere at your website; not in the pages that were checked anyway. Hence, addons.mozilla.org was the only possibility.

You can still use your gmail account for registration, just leave out the periods.

Top sehr nützliche Erweiterung.

Half of what I am seeking ... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works. Would be nice if it could include the settings AND the add-ons in one package.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.0.1). 

There's an add-on for that

OPIE (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/opie/) is a companion to FEBE and CLEO that does just that. It will export any extension preferences and imported into another profile or Fx installation.

While it won't put the add-on and the preferences into a single package, it will allow importing of one or several preference files at one time from a single package.

Great Stuff Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Been on Cleo and Febe off and on for a long time, never had a problem other than "learnbing curve" probs. Adding Box.com was great too.

I expected more from this addon.
Exported 51/70 addons. Had to manually select the profile folder they're stored in.
Might aswell keep doing what i've always done: regularly compress the entire profile folder onto a rar backup and save it.
For this extension to be useful, make it save ALL addons.
For it to be practical, make it do so automatically.

edit: thank you for your explanation Chuck. I wasn't aware CLEO used FEBE's backups. That makes sense. Allow me suggest to add that information to the addon help on the "Items to package" field. For a first time user, it isn't very clear. Sorry for the misinformed bad review.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.0.1). 

I don't believe you understand what this extension does. It does not directly export installed add-ons, but only add-on backups created with FEBE. You should not be looking in your profile folder, but rather your FEBE backup destination folder.

If you would like help understanding what CLEO does, please post in my support forum (http://www.customsoftwareconsult.com/phpBB2/index.php)

Donation? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hi! Great AddOn, but isn't there any way to donate?

Donations

Yes, there is. Thanks for asking!

There is a "Please tip your programmer" link near the bottom of the CLEO homepage (http://softwarebychuck.com/cleo/cleo.html)

One of the mass installers available today is CLEO, is either most up to date or most complex if we follow and use its promised features.
Some may not understand how to use it even after downloading the FEBE extension.
And like was already said before in reviews some of the preferences of the extensions backed up with FEBE were not saved and reinstalled by CLEO.
Anyway ... I'll keep an eye on Chuck Baker's products and use them because as he said the extensions collections can be shared with web users through only one click on the (collection) package address.
At this hour CLEO is part of the best to have extensions especially if you work with 20-30 or more and have to reinstall them oftenly.

Used FEBE to back EVERYTHING (bookmarks, password, plug-ins, everything). CLEO creaded a nice .xpi file for installation on a different firefox, however, this .xpi does not have all setting FEBE exported.

Please add this to CLEO. With FEBE creating a complete backup, and CLEO creating a .xpi to install later, having the .xpi import literally all settings would rule. Add to that an option to upload the .xpi file to an ftp server of your choice, and the combination would the best backup/restore available (since Xmarks is dieing).

You may need to rename it before you get one of those silly threatening legal letters. Cleo is a registered trademark of Cleo Communications.

Awesome extension! FEBE has long been one of my essentials and this companion compliments it perfectly. Two minutes and I had a single .xpi ready to go with all of my extensions in it.

aunque no lo he probado, supongo que su funcionamiento debe ser similar al de FEBE... excelente trabajo, estoy seguro que tiene la misma calidad que su trabajamo más conocido ;)
