Works fine Rated 5 out of 5 stars
It works as expected. Thank you for reviving this add-on officially.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0).
Version 2.7 compatible with FF 9 and 10 Rated 5 out of 5 stars
You can download the new version from http://www.sendspace.com/file/ycxhtt
I know it would be better to place it directly on this addons site. But it's impossible to take over an existing extension without permission of the original author. The recommended procedure is to create a new extension but I don't have time for this.
Version 2.6 compatible with FF 8 Rated 5 out of 5 stars
You can download the new version from http://www.sendspace.com/file/aajh1lThis user has other reviews of this add-on.
Version for Firefox 7 available Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I have created version 2.5. It is compatible with FF 7. The problem with transparent background in context menu is fixed and sk-SK localization is added as well. You can download it from http://www.sendspace.com/file/57d4m6
Reason why it doesn't work on some messages Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I found one. If the headers section of the message is longer than 4096 bytes, then the extension doesn't work. This may have several reasons. For example there are many recipients of the message. Or some antivirus adds to much extra information. In my case it was the googlegroups.com mailing list which produced large headers. You can see the complete headers in message source code - press CTRL+U.
If the extension doesn't work for some message, just open Tools - Error console. You should see a message like:
hdr.get is not a function
If you can see it, then you probably have the same problem.
I have modified the extension so it accepts 32768 bytes which is a limit on many mail servers. It also contains two new reserved words TZ and TZ_NAME mentioned in my previous review. You can download it from http://rapidshare.com/#!download|47l32|442537343|smarttemplate-0.6.0-tb_timezones.xpi|36
I will contact the author so maybe the fix will be available in the next official version.
Timezones explained Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Great extension. Some explanation on time zones - local vs. sender.The following reserved words always use sender's time zone:
%date%, %datelocal%, %dateshort%, %date_tz%.
So if you want to use original time zone in your reply, then use them and you are lucky. But if you are like me, and you want to use your local time zone, then you must use other words. The following reserved words always use your local time zone:
%Y% %m% / %n% %d% / %e% %H% / %k% %I% / %l% %M% %S% %p% / %p(x)% %A% / %a% %B% / %b%.
As you however know, these reserved words return current date and time. But you can easily switch them to the time the original message was sent. Just place %X:=sent% before them. For example:
%X:=sent%%a% %b% %e% %Y% %k%:%M%:%S%
If you later want to use today's time, you can switch back by inserting %X:=today%.
%X:=sent%%k%:%M%:%S% vs. %X:=today%%k%:%M%:%S%
will produce two different times. The first time is the time when the mail was sent and the second one is current time. Both use your time zone and not the sender's one. Example output may look:
20:34:03 vs. 15:08:01
So it's almost everything we need. But I also wanted a timezone in the string, in the format:
Date: Thu Jan 13 2011 20:34:03 GMT+0100 (Central Europe Standard Time)
But there's no reserved word neither for your local time zone offset nor for your local time zone name. I could just manually put +0100 but it may change due to daylight saving. So I modified the version 0.6 and added two new reserved words:
TZ ... local time zone offset
TZ_NAME ... local time zone long name
So the desired pattern for the Date field with my local time zone looks as follows:
Date: %X:=sent%%a% %b% %e% %Y% %k%:%M%:%S% GMT%TZ% (%TZ_NAME%)
If you are interested in these two new reserved words, you can download modified extension from http://rapidshare.com/#!download|47l32|442537343|smarttemplate-0.6.0-tb_timezones.xpi|36
Use lowercase in domains and aliases for autodetection Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Version 1.3.2 works fine with TB 3.0.1 but there is one issue. In Options, automatic identity detection, you must enter the addresses or aliases in LOWERCASE, e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org. If you enter any uppercase character, e.g. Address@domain.com, then the identity is not detected.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.2).
