My Reviews

PDF Viewer

Slow, lacks two-finger zoom and is unable to print math Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Previously I said this:
The good thing about this addon is that it works (I have not done extensive testing, but my previous addon started to crash on me with the latest update of Firefox).
The bad thing is that the rendering is pretty slow (e.g., compared to using Chrome for the same purpose) and also that it lacks the familiar two-finger zooming.
---
Now, after some testing, I have to refine my claim. It works -- until you try to print math, which, most of the time comes out as gibberish. So the addon is simply unable to handle special fonts/characters. Horrible. I am considering to stop using firefox because currently no addon for viewing pdf documents fits my simple purposes (which includes correct printing). At least they should not have disabled the option of using other addons.
Some reviewer above said that Firefox 19 makes all addons obsolete as it includes a built-in pdf viewer. Big secret: The built-in pdf viewer seems to be just this addon. And it is still unable to print math. Why do Mozilla people need to make silly decisions like this? Why change something that worked? I was using fx-quartz-pdf-1.2.0 happily -- I just had to change inside the xpi file the version number accepted until the previous upgrade to Firefox when they arbitrarily decided that from now on all users should use their useless addon.
Why!? Why!?!?!!?!? Why!!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.1). 

Todoist for Thunderbird

Beware of premium features, lock-in and major limitations of the free version. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The add-on is great until you discover that to be able to add notes (actual contents, details) to your tasks you are supposed to subscribe for (currently) $29/year to the premium version. Another feature that is only available in the premium version is the ability to view past projects (so you cannot really use this addon for reporting purposes unless you upgrade). This then makes you think about lock in, etc.
Other issues:
* The tasks appear on the left in a separate column whose width is set to a fixed value, occupying quite a bit of space (I could not at least make them smaller).
* The video shows a 'reorder projects' button on the projects drop-down list, but my version does not have this button! Finally, I have found a way: Left to the projects (when looking at the project list) there is a handle (three horizontal lines) which you grab to move the projects around. It would be good to update the video or just somehow make this feature easier to find for people like me.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.6).
