My Reviews

AutoPager

Seems not to be maintained any more Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I loved to use it for several years, but for some time I am not able to add new working rules.
The developer didn't respond to e-mail-message and the help forum is filled with spam.
What a pity.

History Deleter

Still maintained? Still crashes Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This was a fantastic tool, but the settings window crashes too often :-(

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.4.1). 

Self-Destructing Cookies

Perfect also in combination with CookieMonster Rated 5 out of 5 stars

CookieMonster allows to allow cookies per domain for session only by blocking all cookies as standard setting.
Self-Destruction Cookies extends this feature to allow cookies only as long as the tab is open, if you use the documented hidden feature.
That's what I was waiting for! Thank you.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.3). 

Event-extract

Not useful Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Indeed, it suggests date and time information. But these suggestions are useless because they have nothing in common with the dates in the mails. What a pity. If it worked it where helpful.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4). 

Autofill Forms

Still maintained or not? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I thought this add-on was not maintained any more. Now I read with surprise and joy an answer from Albine. Did you decide to keep on maintaining this add-on?If so, great, because it generally still works with FF 24, except:
- As mentioned in another post the layout of the settings windows is not OK any more and therefore very inconvenient but still usable.
- Additionally AutoFillForms doesn't recognize HTML5 email form fields. As the developer wrote to me this can be easily fixed by adding it to the preferences in about:config
The contents of
extensions.autofillForms@blueimp.net.regExpFormFieldTypes
must be enhanced to
^(?:(?:text(?:area)?)|(?:select-(?:(?:one)|(?:multiple)))|(?:checkbox)|(?:radio)|(?:password)|(?:file)|(?:email))$

Print pages to Pdf

Awesome! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is awesome. The PDF results are very good (not 100% perfect, but I tested many tools with mostly worse results) and the additional features make it a joy to work with the files.Just use the preliminary version for latest Firefox versions.
Thank you to the developer! Great work.

For good results I use the time delay setting for Javascript. I have userscripts for some websites, they take some time. So if you have discontenting results increase this setting. Good results are worth waiting 1 or a few seconds.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.9.0). 

Inspect Context

Helpful (but) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Firefox now has it's own inspect context menu entry but his add-on allows you to easily inspect context menu entries themselves!
Unfortunately e.g. the sub-menu for the spell checker dictionaries cannot be inspected.
The inspect entry is at the top of the context menu. I'd rather have it together with the inspect entry of Firefox. This add-on's entry cannot be moved with Menu Editor. I would appreciate this possibility.

Classic TB2

beautiful and ergonomic Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A clear and light weight theme with buttons easy to identify.
I miss buttons for lightning.
Thank you very much.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.0). 

Hide C. Titlebar Plus Lite

Makes Thunderbird menu much better Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on gives the new Thunderbird look a much nicer appearance. The Firefox-like menu button is much nicer than the ugly original one. And the floating menu bar gives quick access to all items what I miss in the new Thunderbird menu.
Thank you!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.2). 

Purge Events Plus

Very helpful, I recommend it Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Well, this add-on needs some more positive ratings! It is easy to configure, variable because you can configure it for each calender file separately, and the current version DOES purge automatically.
And the add-on is being maintained, so future versions will have more features!
I recommend it for every lightning user.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.5). 

Autofill Forms

Helpful if you often use similar forms Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It is quite complicated for a "normal" user to get this add-on
going. But if you did it is helpful. For few forms to fill it is too much work. Unfortunately the programmers of forms are so "creative" that it is difficult to make profiles that fit for most forms.
But if you use the same forms often, the feature to automatically create a fitting profile is very helpful.

Add-ons Manager Context Menu

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Simple and very helpful. Perfect!

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

FlashResizer

Doesn't work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It doesn't work neither on youtube nor on vimeo. Since other users say it works there may be a problem with other add-ons.

Multiple Addon Deactivator

very helpful Rated 4 out of 5 stars

After the developer fixed a serious bug this add-on works fine. Thank you to the developer. It is very helpful if you have many add-ons and want to test them. It replaces a very helpful feature of MrTech's Toolkit, which isn't being maintained any more.
I am curious about the planned new features, hopefully something like different profiles which allow to have different sets of add-ons activated with one click.

Close tab on ESC

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

What makes it so special is, that the focus doesn't go to the tab to the left of the closed tab as Thunderbird normally does, but to the folder view to the very left.
It would be fantastic if this feature could be added for deleted tabs also.

Expression Search / GMailUI

Powerful Search Tool Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on is simply what it is called to be: a powerful search tool. Very helpful if you easily want to find messages.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.3). 

AddressBookTab

Helpful Rated 4 out of 5 stars

A nice add-on, thank you!
The tabs don't show the name of the respective address book (just Adressbuch (German)) although the setting is checked. Would be nice if that worked.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4.2). 

Nightly Tester Tools

No customize titlebar menu entry in TB 5 Rated 2 out of 5 stars

There is no Customize Titlebar menu entry in TB 5 (see https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=673449)
Windows XP SP3

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.1.5.1).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

ExExceptions

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Can't find a toolbar button - and would like to have one :-)

Context Search RG

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Real good ... but:
Since I have very many search engines I use the "Organize Search Engines" add-on. This allows to organize the search engines in folders. It were great if Context Search RG could correspond with this add-on to show the folder tree. Otherwise it's too unclear.
