Extension List Dumper 2

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I don't know if you have any influence over it, but when searching for 'extension list' (without the apostrophes) your addon cannot be found. I have no idea why the FF addon search is so crappy, but for your sake maybe you could get the folks at Mozilla to fix it.

There are two things I've encountered which I might suggest improving, and they're minor:

1. Some kind of message that when a list is generated, that it has actually been generated. Currently, it just does it (thumbs-up for that :) ), but you have to go and look for the list to know it was generated.

2. If there were an indicator on the popup saying which list will being generated, it would be more user-friendly. When on the plugins page if I click to generate a list, the popup tile is "Extension List Dumper", but seeing the word "Extensions" irritates until you read through the preview to see which list is actually being generated.

Finding Extention List Dumper 2 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Hi Iceberg,

yes, if you search for 'dumper' (without the apostrophes) you will find it, but nobody looking for an addon which generates a -list- of -extensions- is going to search for 'dumper'.

Searching for 'extension list' (without the apostrophes) will also not find your addon.

BTW, I'm now using your addon ;)

Please get this working again @_@ Rated 4 out of 5 stars

On TB 31.7.0 it's unfortunately not working anymore :(

I don't know how long I've been using this add-on, but very long for sure.

Please, please, pretty-please, get this to work with TB 31+ pretty-pretty-please ;_;

Extension List Dumper

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

WTF! Really, WTF!!!!!

For such a simple add-on this is the biggest cluster-f*ck I've seen in ages.

-- Thunderbird->Tools->Add-Ons Manager said this morning (24-Aug-2015) there is an update to ELD i.e. 1.15.2.1-signed, but neither this page nor Sogame's page says anything about it. Nothing!

-- I let the update install, restart TB and check the results. Aside that the version number has changed to 1.15.2.1-signed, nothing has change; the add-on-list stays empty

-- See that somebody has taken on adding a follow-up to ELD with ELD-2. Search for ELD-2 in the site search function and even with "Extension List Dumper 2" written out the add-on is not found!!

-- Although ELD is only allowed for TB 1.5-9 my ver 31.1.2 says nothing about ELD not being allowed and still updates from 1.15.2 to 1.15.2.1-signes, which is also only allowed up to TB ver 9!!

JFC!! nothing works here from the site to the app to the add-on controls. Really, Outlook is looking better and better every day.

Context Search X

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have 0.4.6.23.1-signed installed on FF 38.1.1 ESR. Under options, clicking the "Get more search engines" link does nothing.

Other than that, I'm pretty happy with it. Another one of those 'features' that I missed until I found an add-on.

Manually sort folders

My faith in humanity restored Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Finding a replacement for a dead add-on *cough*cough*Folderpane-Tool*cough* is always a joy, especially when it works.

A reviews section with 5 different languages on one page, priceless :D

Quick Translator

One of the most useful Add-Ons I've found! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The one thing missing though is that one cannot manually select from which language to translate if the auto-select is wrong :-( .

That would be simple to add I'm sure and make this Add-On perfect.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.1-signed). 

Tab To Window

Not For FF20!!! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I've used this plug-in for a long time and was very happy with it.

Within the last year updated FF from ver. 14, to 17, to 19 and yesterday to 20.

Since updating FF to 20 having "Tab To Window" causes a custom toolbar that I have to constantly disappear after closing and opening FF again. I had to do a Reset of FF and reinstall all of my plugins one after the other to find this. TTW is definitely the culprit.

Besides, in FF20--maybe a couple of version previous--moving a tab to it's own window is in the tab's context menu, and to move a tab from one window to another you just drag-n-drop. If the tab was the last in the window, the window closes.

Thank you very much Sogame for years of good service, but TTW is redundant in at least FF20.

Quicktext

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I've been using this for years; the Pro version for pay with script support.

Currently, one thing after another is breaking down and not getting fixed :-(

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.11.5). 

SearchWP

Works well with one exception Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The only thing lacking the breaking up bracketed searches; EG (apples|oranges). Google will search for a page with either 'apples' and/or 'oranges'. Google Toolbar used to divide these up into two find-on-page buttons.

Other than that, this is great. You can even use it to find words on a page without having to search with the engine for them. Just type the word in the search-bar and left-click outside of it and a button is generated.

Plus, you can search backwards by shift-clicking a word button, which Google Toolbar couldn't even do.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.5.0.1-signed). 

View Headers Toggle Button

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

You can also view the complete header through:
View -> Headers -> All
either in the main window or a separate message window.

Why oh why doesn't Mozilla just give us the button to save us time instead of letting us wait for weeks, months, ever for somebody else to do the work.

The Bat is getting to look better and better all the time.

Five stars because I _had_been_ using this for 3 or more years! Minus 2 stars because there's no update for TB 3.0.

Buttons!

0.5.3.2 DOES work with TB 3.0.4 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I've been using Buttons! for years too; how time flies. After updating TB to 3.0.4 my Buttons! 0.5.3.2 installation suddenly stopped working. A message under Add-Ons said -Does not provide secure updates-.

I re-downloaded Buttons! 0.5.3.2 (wasn't the same size as my previous download with the same version number) and re-installed and suddenly the message has disappeared and it works again.

Maybe the numbering should be changed to 0.5.3.2a ;-)
