Browser path not saved permanently Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This extension works well, but has one small bug:
When I change the path of the external web browser in the preferences, it seems to be saved OK, but it sometimes reverts to the old value the next day.
Security risk since not updated for a long time? Rated 3 out of 5 stars
The most current version of Thunderbrowse is 3.82 from 12 October 2012. If I view a web-page in Thunderbrowse, is this like viewing the same web-page in Mozilla Firefox from 2012? From a security standpoint you should not use a browser which was not updated for years. Is this security aspect also true for Thunderbrowse?
Could not save the addon options. Rated 1 out of 5 stars
It is partially working on Thunderbird 45.
As other users have reported, it is impossible to save the addon options.
Are you going to fix it? Rated 1 out of 5 stars
It's not working anymore.This user has a previous review of this add-on.
Broken !! Why is it featured in TB 38.4.0 addons ?? Rated 1 out of 5 stars
It's broken.. you can not save any option changes so it makes the addon useless to everyone.
waiting for someone to fix it :( Rated 3 out of 5 stars
This use to be one of the most useful extensions for thunderbird. Unfortunately it doesn't work anymore since a while. I'm sure that it would be easily fixable (but unfortunately I don't have the skills to do it myself). I'm still keeping up the hope that maybe someone with the right skills will be able to fix it and release a new version. Let's pray guys
Can't save options Rated 1 out of 5 stars
As others here have reported, I can't save options so this addon is of very limited use. Looks like it has been abandoned by the developer, unfortunately.

Was fantastic in the past, but stopped working in Thunderbird 38.1.

Dear developer, Why have you given up on this great add on? It is one of the most useful add ons for TB. There is no other add on that does even a fraction of all these things. If you remember my name, I had given lot of feedbacks on its use in developing it during early days. Please find some time and release a new update. We would be greatful to you. Thanks. Rawat.
Great idea, but falls apart in Thunderbird 38.0.1 Rated 3 out of 5 stars
ThunderBrowse 3.82 is actually a great idea but at the sane time, does NOT work correctly within Thunderbird 38.0.1, and it's the only tool we can see that does what we almost "desperately" need it for. What to do ?This user has 4 previous reviews of this add-on.

Thunderbrowse 3.82 breaks the Remote Content preference in Thunderbird e-mail client (31.6.0). Had to disable Thunderbrowse in order to get the remote content preference to work.
Unable to make changes to preferences Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I just installed this plugin (v3.82) in Thunderbird (v31.5.0) I see the plugin in my message pane and am able to navigate to websites. If I click to another tab (Add-ons Manager in this instance) and go back to my main tab that contains ThunderBrowse, my page is blank. Refreshing fixes this, but I was mid form, looking up info to fill. My main issue with the add on is that when I open the preferences for the add-on, I am able to make changes to settings, but the OK button does nothing. I am able to close the dialog, but obviously none of the changes are reflected.
Good Concept and Good Implementation Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Opening a page without opening firefox was my wish, and this addon delivered. Nice and useful addon.

To make a long story short: nice idea, maybe worked once, now (TB 31 on Linux) it's broken.
Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Unfortunately none of the option changes can be saved, the "OK" button can't be clicked (W7 and Debian GNU/Linux tested). Last version dates back almost 2 years so this is probably abandoned now.
Settings Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Nice add-on but same problem as the previous user has, won't change settings.This user has a previous review of this add-on.
I can't change setting Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I love thunderbrowse, but last update have a issue for me (using tb 31). In options windows, when change any setting, accept button don't work!!!
Convenient Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This saves a lot of time for quick looks. It doesn't play nice with addon SmoothWheel though so I switch to the browser if I want to read beyond the fold. If it allowed Smoothwheel settings to control my scrolling, I'd give it a 5.
Slowed me down Rated 2 out of 5 stars
It works well enough, although I'd like to see both more browser functionality built-in (e.g., ability to use Diigo toolbar) and an easier way to choose between viewing in a TB tab vs a browser tab.
But before I disabled this add-on, TB was using over 100% of available CPU cycles. And boy! Was my computer running hot! I disabled the app, and now TB is mainly using about 25% of CPU cycles.
