My Reviews

gfycat Companion

FINALLY a good solution to all those videos posted as animated GIFs Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This addon works exactly as advertised, integrating with the gfycat service to transparently replace animated GIFs with HTML5 video. The compression ratio can easily reach 10:1 and the speed increase is extremely obvious. I haven't run into any weirdness or compatibility problems, it just works. I'd recommend this to everyone!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3a2). 

DKIM Verifier

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Awesome! Works exactly as advertised. This functionality should be included in Thunderbird by default.

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

HabuL

Easily fixed for Thunderbird 14 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I was sad to see that this no longer works in Thunderbird 14 and it doesn't seem to be actively maintained. Fortunately, it was an easy fix. You can get a compatible version at http://www.shroomery.org/ythan/habul_fixed.xpi.

*Please note that I am not the original author of this addon and this is an unofficial release!* If you are uncomfortable installing an addon which has not been reviewed by Mozilla, you can make the fix yourself. Just add the following to line 71 in habul.js:

var msgComposeService = Components.classes["@mozilla.org/messengercompose;1"].getService(Components.interfaces.nsIMsgComposeService);

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.10.0). 

Undo Bookmarks Menu

Works great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I wish there was a way to lock the bookmarks menu, I'm always accidentally dragging stuff around where I don't want it. This add-on solves the problem and I consider it a must-have.

Tab Utilities

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Absolutely fantastic! Replaced 4 other tab-related extensions. Worth it for the delayResizing option alone.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.1). 

Habu

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a great extension, but as some people already mentioned it is not compatible with Thunderbird 3.0. I created an updated build which you can get at http://www.shroomery.org/ythan/habu-1.8.6.5a-tb.xpi. Please understand that I'm not the original author and this is an unofficial, unsupported release. But for the time being it seems to work well enough for me. :)

Sender Verification Anti-Phishing Extension

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is an excellent extension but as mentioned in other reviews, the DomainKeys verification is currently broken. I got the working code for SenderVerification.pm and query.cgi from archive.org, and set up my own verification server. In the extension settings, set your DK Verification Server to:

http://www.shroomery.org/dkverify/query.cgi

You can also view SenderVerification.pm.txt and query.cgi.txt in that same location to get the source and set up your own server.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.0.3). 

Enigmail

An excellent extension Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This extension makes GPG seamless and easy to use in Thunderbird. It has all the features you'd expect and works intuitively and reliably. Kudos to the author for a job well done.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.95.6).
