My Reviews

Extra Folder Columns

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I like this so much I'm taking time to write a review. When I upgraded to TB 8 a lot of add-ons were disabled automatically and others by me because I couldn't remember what they were. When I opened TB 8 I was very unhappy to find that the "Total" and "Size" columns were no longer available in the Accounts pane. I have a lot of accounts and it was tremendously helpful to be able to see this info. I'd know when to compact a folder thanks to the Size column, among other things. Fortunately I figured out that it was an add-on not being implemented that was the reason for the change. I don't know why Mozilla didn't build this feature into the app--it's that good (and important!). Thank you for this terrific add-on.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.4). 

Sun Cult

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you for spending the time to make Sun Cult work with FF5. The add-on is terrific and having it back is making me very happy. The number of customizable features is amazing.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.20110715). 

App Button Color

Very useful and fun! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love this, thank you for creating the add-on. Being able to change the color of the Jesus Button to work with the desktop backgrounds I cycle through is awesome. It really makes it easier for me to "find" the button quickly and if I pick the right color it looks pretty spiffy to boot. Great job. Win 7 Pro 64-bit FF4.0

Email Notification Randomizer

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

As noted earlier, it seems the randomizer no longer works with the current release of tbird (.23 for me atm). I'm bumming.

Email Notification Randomizer

Awesome! It's back! My favorite add-on! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is, bar none, my all time favorite add-on, both for Thunderbird and Firefox.

Thank you, Joshua, for updating it! Thank you, thank you!

I was crushed when it stopped working almost two years ago. (Why? See below.) I left it "attached" to Thunderbird all this time ... just in case. When I started Thunderbird at home this evening, leaving it in place paid off, big time.

I use Thunderbird at home and at work and while I don't find email to be annihilatingly awful, I spend a horrendous amount of time reading and writing it. I easily write nearly 5,000 messages at work alone in a year.

One of the computer-geeky things I have is a substantial collection of funny (or alarming, or ...) sound files. I've been saving them for a very long time, simply because I found them to be funny, or ... well, something. I don't have any way to hear them short of firing them up individually, and I don't have much time for that, so they mostly sit in a folder and gather virtual dust.

This add-on brings the collection to life and makes receiving mail fun: I will, more likely than not, get a good laugh with each new message. Laughter is, I think, very good for many reasons, and it's more than great when it happens under circumstances which involve a lot of pressure and cause stress. Enough said.

On a serious note, the old interface was pretty slick, but the new one is equally good for different reasons: it's small, simple and direct.

So, thank you very much again for taking the time to update this add-on. I'm sure it took more time than was readily available and probably a significant amount of that. I'd give a PayPal donation if I could. I'm bringing a flash drive full of WAV files to work tomorrow, will install the add-on, and it's neat knowing I'll be getting a real kick out of new mail at work for quite some time to come.
