Mes critiques

Compose for Thunderbird

Awesome Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

I've been using Thunderbird since 2005 and have always wondered why the composing options were so limited. Oftentimes I write my emails in OpenOffice, LibreOffice, or even MS Word before pasting them in Thunderbird. Compose for Thunderbird goes a long way towards bringing Thunderbird on par with those writing applications. This add-on still needs work, more features, and the ability to modify it; but overall it is a very awesome add-on -- especially for only being version 0.2. Thank you mozjonathan!

ImportExportTools

Very Useful Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

I stumbled upon ImportExport Tools sometime last year (2010) and have found it to be very useful. I especially like the ability to save email messages in different formats. The add-on has many other useful features as well.

Highlighter

I waited a long time... Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

...for someone to develop an extension like this; thank you André Rodier! On a planet far, far away I used MS Outlook and became accustomed to the highlighting feature. I switched to TB years ago and have missed the ability to highlight text ever since.

Context Search

Very Useful Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

I love this extension. I use it in conjunction with the Add to Search Bar and Organize Search Engines extensions without any problems. This extension makes searching so much easier than using the dragging/dropping and copy/paste methods.

ConQuery

Good for Thunderbird Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

I use ConQuery in Thunderbird so that I don't have to copy/paste searches into Firefox. Shadow912's version for Firefox 5.0.* works with Thunderbird 5.0 if you hack the install.rdf file. Although I use this ConQuery in Thunderbird I do not use it in Firefox 5.0. Instead, I use Context Search (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/context-search/) because it offers more or less the same functionality and is kept up to date by its developer. Anybody desiring the functionality of ConQuery without all the hassles should look to using Context Search.

Office Black

Very Nice for Thunderbird 5.0 Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

I just updated Thunderbird to 5.0. The native theme is atrocious so I quickly went looking for something else and found Office Black. Officially it is not compatible with TB 5.0, but after hacking the install.rdf file for Office Black I made it compatible. It works and I must say it is a dramatic improvement over the native TB theme! Kudos to the developer.

Screengrab

Works Great, But Lacks Features Noté 4 sur 5 étoiles

Screengrab works exactly as intended, but I find it lacks many of the features of Pearl Crescent Page Saver Basic. Screengrab is great for anybody looking for a screen capture add-on that simply works. If you want more features, however, check out Pearl Crescent.

Pearl Crescent Page Saver Basic screenshot tool

Excellent Add-on! Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

PCPSB is simply the best screen capture add-on I've used with Firefox. It is more feature-rich than Screengrab and nowhere near as annoying as FireShot. PCPSB is my "go-to" program when I want to capture a page in Firefox. I highly recommend it to everyone.

BarTab

Fantastic! Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

I just discovered this add-on yesterday and I already love it. Firefox is my main browser and I've been struggling with having too many tabs open in it for years. As a workaround, I’ve been running multiple instances of Firefox using different profiles in addition to using other browsers just to minimize the number of tabs I have open in Firefox.

Not only did I cringe every time I had to load or restart Firefox, but I was also frustrated with Firefox bogging down after running for several hours with numerous open tabs. This was especially frustrating because the only way I could get Firefox to perform well was to restart it! (And wait for all the tabs to reload.)

Now that I’m using this wonderful extension, however, I don’t have to worry about having to load or reload a tab until I actually click on it. Moreover, Firefox doesn’t bog down anymore even after being open all day. Kudos to the developer.

Flagfox

No Problems Here Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

Version 4.0 works great for me using FF3.6 on Windows 7 x64 Ultimate. I have a total of 35 extension running so it can't be that Flagfox has conflicts with other extensions.

I'd also like to say that the features available in 4.0 are excellent. I find the ability to right-click on the flag icon and select from a list of external lookups to be very useful. The ability to create my own lookups may also prove useful.

Thanks for your work Dave.G!

Show Parent Folder

My Lucky Day Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

I stumbled upon this add-on while researching a problem with totally different add-on. It's my lucky day! It has been frustrating to search for a bookmark, find it, but then not have any information as to where it was located. That is no longer a problem thanks to this handy add-on. I never understood why something so basic is not part of Firefox.

NoSquint

A necessity for high resolution, widescreen displays Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

I've been using this extension for years and absolutely love it! The main benefits are 1) zoom level increment adjustment, 2) default zoom adjustment, and most importantly 3) remembering the zoom level per site.

No Squint performs flawlessly with FF3.0. However, I had to hack it to get it to work with FF3.1b2 because there isn't a new version for FF3.1. No Squint worked fine with the hack until I upgraded to FF3.1b3. Now No Squint no longer remembers zoom settings -- even when simply switching from tab to tab.

The good news is that I did find another extension that provides the same basic functionality as No Squint and works with FF3.1. It's called "Default FullZoom Level" and can be found here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/6965.

Re-Pagination

Very useful tool: Highly recommended Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

It's really a shame that this extension is no longer supported. I guess it's because more people don't understand what an awesome and powerful tool this extension really is, and how it can enhance your browsing experience.

I'm delighted that it works with FF 3.0 (if you hack it), but it is in need of additional development work beyond a simple compatibility upgrade. (Some minor bugs do exist.)

Regardless, I will continue to hack it and use it with each new version of FF until it is either supported again, or until it becomes completely incompatible with FF.

Thanks for reading!

UnMHT

Works perfectly! Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

I've been looking for something like this for a couple of years. I hate having to open .hmt files in Internet Exploder.

Even though this extension is still experimental, I have not had any problems using it in FF 3.0.5. I also haven't noticed any compatibility problems with the other 33 extensions I have installed.

Good work arai_a!

Splash!

Nice Visual Confirmation Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

I find this extension quite useful--especially when introducing Firefox to a first-time user. I even have it installed on my machines; it's nice to get a visual confirmation that FF is loading.

FireShot

Overall, a very useful extension Noté 4 sur 5 étoiles

I used the ScreenGrab extension for awhile and then switched to Pearl Crescent Page Saver Basic. Let me say that FireShot is a much more extensive and useful tool than either of those extensions.

The only problem I had with FireShot is that it crashed Firefox (3.0b4) immediately after saving a screen capture. The screen capture was successful, but what a pain! (I see that several other people in the reviews below have also experienced this problem.)

I did some troubleshooting and discovered that the problem is not due to an incompatibility with another extension; it is due to the FireShot button on the toolbar (believe it or not). If I remove the button FireShot works perfectly. If I place it back on the toolbar FireShot starts crashing again. This isn't a major problem for me since FireShot is also available in the mouse context menu.

The aforementioned problem combined with the lack of an undo feature is why I gave FireShot a rating of 9.

Add to Search Bar

Just plain rocks! Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

I have been wanting something like this for awhile now. I stumbled upon it after visiting the homepage for the Organize Search Engines extension. (Another excellent extension from this developer!) Also, it does not disable Manage Search Engines as noted by "NukeWkill" below. BTW: I'm using both extensions in FF3b4.

Copy Plain Text

Used Constantly Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

Pros: Does exactly what it says: copies whatever you have selected (on a web page) while removing all formatting in the process. I use this extension constantly.

Cons: Needs an option to create a user-defined keyboard shortcut. Needs to be updated for FF3.0.

It does work with FF3.0b3 if you use the MR Tech Local Install extension to overwrite 'maxVersion' compatibility testing. You can also use the Nightly Tester Tools extension to overwrite 'maxVersion' compatibility testing.

Thank you Jeremy Gillick!

Tab Mix Plus

A "must have" for me! Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

I am so spoiled by this extension that I have a very hard time using any other browser besides Firefox. I even have a difficult time using Firefox on another computer if it doesn't have this extension installed.

It does work with FF3.0b3 if you install this version: http://saber.kawaii-shoujo.net/Various/tab_mix_plus-0.3.6.0.071228.xpi

The only complaint I have with this extension is that occasionally the session manager loses my tabs. Happens rarely, but nevertheless, does happen.

Kudos to the extension creator.
