My Reviews

Manually sort folders

Works well except for one key missing feature Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I recently moved my email accounts, so I added some new servers, and am about to delete the old ones. I used this plugin to re-sort the accounts rather than doing it the about:config way, and it worked great, except for one thing...

I had moved my "Feeds" (RSS) folder to the end, after "Local Folders," but this plugin moved "Local Folders" back to the end, and in its UI, "Local Folders" is locked there. I want my feeds separate from my email, at the bottom of the list, but this extension makes that impossible, because of what seems to be an arbitrary UI choice.

Once I finish my server move, I'll have to move my accounts around manually and avoid using this plugin, so it doesn't break my sorting again.

Ebates Cash Back Button

Extension works once again, but only partially Rated 3 out of 5 stars

4.7.4.1 still seems partly broken. The cash back reminder comes up now, which is great, but the toolbar icon doesn't respond to clicks, and it's once again distorted (off-centered and somewhat stretched horizontally). Nor does the toolbar icon change color depending on whether cash back is available or active (it's supposed to, or was supposed to in previous versions).

The core functionality of notifying you of cash back and activating cash back, however, appears to work again.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.7.4.1).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Ebates Cash Back Button

Double-wide button? Rated 2 out of 5 stars

The extension seems to work okay, but at least in Firefox 46, the toolbar button is stretched horizontally about 200%. Not only does it take up too much space, but it looks a bit ridiculous.

I'm hearing it also has a memory leak, or I'd give it 3 stars for the cosmetic issue. I'll keep an eye on it and decide whether or not to keep it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.5.0.0). 

Searchonymous

Nice for privacy, but has minor issues Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is great for search privacy, since it keeps you logged out of the search engine while you remain logged into other Google sites. Unfortunately, at least on Firefox 30, it also blocks the Google Doodle on the search engine's front page. The Doodle is visible to users who aren't logged in, so obviously the extension is doing more just just keeping users logged out, and is having at least one minor impact on the site's functionality/appearance.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.2.1-signed). 

Netflix Rate

Excellent Netflix tweak! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a really simple extension that adds a great function to Netflix. Excellent!

One word of warning, though - if you use NoScript, it'll work when you first install it (maybe because of the "No Restart"), and stop working immediately after. You'll need to whitelist "omdbapi.com" to get it working.

Priv3

Great idea, but blocks useful cookies, not just social networking cookies Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I've been noticing that I periodically can't log into various websites, and when I look at my cookies exceptions list, I find lots of legitimately useful sites set to "BLOCK." As soon as an existing cookie expires, this setting causes Firefox to reject new cookies, and affected sites refuse to recognize me, often giving no error message whatsoever. After months of this periodic annoyance, I finally figured out that certain sites get added the moment I visit certain pages on their domain. This allowed me to troubleshoot and find the culprit. It's Priv3 0.2 that's causing this problem (in many versions of Firefox, up to at least 23.0, on Windows 7 x64)

Priv3 is adding sites to my cookie block list, and not just suppressing social media tracking cookies, as described on the extension's homepage. This is a significant problem, and makes the extension pretty much unusable. I love the idea of Priv3 and what it's supposed to do, but adding domains to the Firefox cookie block list periodically is a show-stopper.

I'll happily re-enable this extension if this problem is resolved, because I think it provides a truly useful function.

Mnenhy

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Mnenhy is an absolutely essential extension for me. I accidentally upgraded to TB9.0 before Mnenhy supported it, and it's been rough not having it until 0.85 was released. Custom headers and clickable headers make so much of a difference when you use a spam filter program like POPFile. Thanks Karsten, for keeping this extension updated over the years!

Extra Folder Columns

Great unless you use Smart Folders Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This restores a useful feature that was annoyingly removed from Thunderbird (though I still miss the parenthetical unread message number, which takes less space than a column). As others have pointed out, this extension does NOT work properly with the "Smart Folders" view (inbox accounts are all listed as "Inbox" instead of the account names. Ditto for Sent, Drafts, and Trash). Hopefully that'll be addressed in a future version.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4). 

Mnenhy

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This addon is absolutely crucial, containing basic functionality that should've been put into Thunderbird years ago. Without it, I can't use Thunderbird. Now that it's been updated, I can consider upgrading. I absolutely recommend this add-on to anyone and everyone!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.2). 

MinimizeToTray--0.9pre Compatible

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Succesfully forced install on Sunbird 1.0b1 with install.rdf hack, but it doesn't function. :(

MinimizeToTray Plus

Fails with Sunbird 1.0b1 Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I edited the Install.rdf file to "force" it to work with Sunbird 1.0b1 (by changing the MaxVersion to 1.1), but Sunbird still says it's incompatible with this version.

ChromaTabs

Nice if it worked with any theme Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I like the idea of this extension, but there are unfortunately a number of themes that it doesn't work with, including the one that I use - Noia 2.0 (eXtreme). Hopefully a future version will work for those not using the default theme or one of the select themes this works with.
