My Reviews

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.

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!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.5).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

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.
