Crashes Google searches on FF 28 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Worked fine up until the last version of Firefox. As of version 28, however, it crashes Firefox when performing any and all Google searches. Verified on both Mac and Windows.

Now updated for TB 24+ Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Now working again with all versions of Thunderbird! This is a pretty necessary add-on for me; so thank you, Karsten.

Broken on TBird 24? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This has always been an absolutely essential add-on for me, especially the custom header feature. It makes the Thunderbird user experience so much better! Unfortunately, it seems to be broken under TBird 24. Whatever custom headers one chooses, all headers are displayed. I'm hoping that Karsten will be able to fix this soon!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.5). 

Firefox 3 theme for Firefox 4+ Reloaded!

Just one thing missing.... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I was very happy to see that this project had been continued. The new version is great, but has one minor defect (as did the original): when the mouse cursor passes over an enlargeable image, it does not change into a magnifying glass as is the default almost everywhere else. If this could be fixed, I'd give it five stars!

Thank you for keeping this add-on updated Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks to Michal for keeping this add-on current and updated. Several Thunderbird themes were broken by TB17, but this one is going strong as ever. Much appreciated!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (17.0.2). 

Classic Reloaded

A pity that it's broken, and hasn't been updated since Sep 2011 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This was my perfect theme for TB. Unfortunately, it has been broken since the release of TB 15 (when the tabs started to have problems) and it was further broken by TB 17 (when a large grey space started appearing under the title bar). It became clear that that this theme is now an orphan, and will have no further updates. I therefore moved to Classic TB2, but that stopped being updated in May 2012. It is broken in TB17 in the same way as Classic Reloaded. The closest working theme that I have found is xpDefault, which is regularly updated. I would recommend it to anyone who used to use either Classic Reloaded or Classic TB2.

Classic TB2

A great disappointment due to the fact that it is not being updated Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I liked this theme. It was good while it lasted. Unfortunately, it has been broken since the release of TB 17 (large grey area under the title bar), and by now it seems clear that it is not being updated. The closest working theme that I have found is xpDefault, which is regularly updated. I would recommend it to anyone who used to use Classic TB2.

PS: I am adding this after the developer's reply below. First of all, thanks to Corey for replying less than 24 hours after I posted my review. I agree that it's only been a week since TB17 came out, but since the notice that the add-on is still in development was only posted after my comments, I think that my doubts about the extension's future were understandable, especially since the theme was immediately broken with the new TB release.

Since I am responsible for the TB installations of a group of people (most of whom wouldn't recognize an add-on if it spoke to them in the street), I need to give them certainties. To say, "Things will be updated shortly" is acceptable; to say "I don't know what's happening" is not. At that point I have to advise them to what to do to "get their TB back" That xpDefault has continued to work seamlessly with the new TB update is something positive that I cannot ignore.

If Corey could give a quick status update soon after each TB GUI change that impacts Classic TB2, it would be much appreciated. And, as far as I understand, Thunderbird will now be slowing down its rapid release cycle for a while (at least until Firefox reaches number 24); which will be a relief for all of us. The fact that Mozilla has officially announced that it will concentrate on Firefox to the detriment of Thunderbird at least has a silver lining!

In any case, the developer's statement that Classic TB2's development will continue is good news. Looking forward to the next release. Thanks, Corey.
