My Reviews

ThreadKey

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I like this add-on because sorting a folder's content by date or something different (obviously) breaks with the threaded view. Using this extension I can quickly restore my beloved threaded view without navigating through several sub-menues.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5). 

Show InOut

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I like this add-on very much because I store all my sent and received e-mails in the same folder to get an overview on complete message threads (including my replies).
Unfortunately, the iconic graphic on the "incoming/outgoing" column increases the height of the whole header bar a few pixels on Windows (XP or Vista w/ classic theme). I have to replace the graphic everytime this add-on is updated.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.12). 

Rewrap Toolbar Button

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It's very handy to have this functionality available on the toolbar. But what would be really helpful is a rewrap function that preserves intentional line-breaks (e.g. header lines from quoted e-mails).

MinimizeToTray

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Should be built-in with Thunderbird. My e-mail application runs the whole day and should not take up space on my taskbar.
But everytime I update other plugins, this one gets disabled automatically and Thunderbird says that "a compatibility update was installed" and re-enables MinimizeToTray after a second restart. The version number does not increase - it's possibly a problem with my Thunderbird installation.

Mail Redirect

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on found it's place in my Thunderbird's toolbar. Despite not often used, it adds functionality otherwise not available in Thunderbird.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.5). 

Display Quota

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

With this add-on I found out that my quota probably will never exceed 75%. ;)
I recommend this add-on for everyone with a limited IMAP account and a lot of e-mails.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.1.1). 

Display Mail User Agent

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I don't want to miss this add-on in my daily routine. It helps me classify me communication partners' skills and the circumstances under which they are writing e-mails (e.g. a regular thunderbird user who uses hotmail is much likely on the road without access to his regular computer and a GMail user won't be able to receive encrypted attachments).
This add-on increased my mailing experience much more than I would have though before installing it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.6.4.3). 

Update Bookmark

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I use this add-on from time to time only to update bookmark urls. It just saves time. Unfortunately, there is an unnecessary separator in Firefox 3 and the support homepage seems outdated (still presenting version 0.0.4.1 and not linking to this page).

Text Link

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I use it regularly because it also understands most line-wrapped links. Wouldn't be necessary if people understood the concept of hyperlinks. But until then, I definitely need this add-on.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.1.2009032701). 

Open in Browser

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Comes in handy when you encounter a misconfigured webserver or want to display files directly in the browser. I'm not a daily user but this add-on saved my day several times. :)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.6). 

NewTabURL

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Soon after installation I took the new tab feature for granted. Unfortunately, even 1.6.3 does not work correctly when opening whole folders from the bookmark menu (middle-click the folder's name -> the first opened tab loads my start page [my default choice for new tabs]) - it's the same problem 1.6.2 had with folders in the bookmark toolbar. :(

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.6.4). 

Locationbar²

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Perfect addition to my firefox experience. Go up one level with a single click or edit the current address just by entering the address bar with your mouse from a different direction. So easy, so helpful. I use it daily and don't want to miss this add-on.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.3). 

Combine Stop-Reload Buttons

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great Add-On that improves the simplicity of the toolbar.
