My Reviews

Mailbox Alert

Must have. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm using this since ~1,5 years now. Never got a single problem. Works perfect for me, I get notified about important mails sorted into a special folder only. No more distraction by notifications about low-priority mails. :-)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.14.6).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Zindus

Works perfect... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm using this to sync with Google Apps for Business. Not a single problem ever.

Signature Switch

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Pure productivity booster, Signature Switch FTW!

I have two business accounts, a personal mail account and have to write mails in English and German. Without Signature Switch, it would not be possible to fit all multilingual needs, mailing-lists and stuff. Thanks for this great addon!

Mailbox Alert

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I always searched for a way to get informed when getting high-priority mails within a specific folder, filled by filters. The folder based alerts provided by Mailbox Alert are just perfect. 5 stars.

Enigmail

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Can't not work without this. Perfect.

64bit Linux users: Have a look at "http://enigmail.mozdev.org/download/download-static.php.html" for a proper .xpi

Manually sort folders

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Simply works perfect. Cause it allows sorting folders AND accounts, it replaced my former account sorting extension.

Quick Locale Switcher

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Perfect. I came from Dictionary Switcher (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3414/) to this one.

The only (small) thing I am missing here (but this may only be a matter of taste): make locales switchable by clicking a simple left click. To make clear what i mean:
right click = context menu, showing all available locales.
left click = switch to the next locale in the list.

However: good one. 5 stars.

Dictionary Switcher

Nice, but there is a better one (Quick Locale Switcher) Rated 4 out of 5 stars

If you don't need the (IMHO far too slow) "detect as I type" feature, have a look at "Quick Locale Switcher": https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/1333/
I used Dictionary Switcher a long time and it works quite well (therefore 4 stars), but I'd like a way to select locales to show in the list (the list is very long on many Unix-like systems cause they often provide many locales). Additionally, Quick Locale Switcher provides some additional features beside the full control of the listed locales.
