My Reviews

mailTagger

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Nice extension and it installed into TB 3.0.4 so it's intended to be compatible, but I added some folders and now I can't switch from folder to folder.

CompactHeader

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Totally perfect. Allows the "other actions" button to be in the same row as the "Reply", "Forward" and "delete" (why didn't the developers capitalize the word "delete"?) buttons as it should have been from the start. Expands the list of "other actions" available by adding all kinds of great things you can do, for instance: allows an extremely compact header view by selecting "Hide details". This is the way that the developers of TB3 should have done it! If not "the", then definitely "one of the" most important extensions for TB3. Many thanks to jmozmoz! I hope the developers sit up and take notice.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.4). 

Leet Key

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I can't get it to install in Thunderbird 3.0 rv:1.9.1.5. It installs in Firefox's current version though.

MessageID-Finder

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This extension is one of the very few that I find indispensable when using Thunderbird. It helps me to easily find a message by using its Message-ID and it uses several methods to do so. I really wish the author would consider updating it so that it works with Thunderbird 3. In fact, its not being compatible with that version is one of the main reasons I'm not upgrading to TB3 at this point in time.

This extension is excellent. Especially since FF now uses a database to store bookmarks instead of an html file. I just used it this morning and it worked perfectly. Very easy to use, very intuitive and loaded with excellent features like sorting out the reasons a page is not working, finding duplicates, allowing deletion of bookmarks (duplicate or no longer working) as you like, rather than doing it automatically. It replaces a bookmark checker program I was using and which no longer works with Firefox because of the new way that bookmarks are stored. Many thanks to the developer of this extension. I will continue to use this extension. It actually works BETTER than I expected it to!

I wish this extension would be updated. To get around current version compatibility, I've modified my copy of this extension's .xpi so that it works with the current version of Thunderbird, and it does so without any bugs, as far as I can see.

Using the additional button that this extension makes available is a very convenient way to create a reply message that you KNOW isn't going to be cross-posted to several newsgroups.

Smilie Inserter

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This really adds a lot more available smilies, but if your default folder contains too many smilie .gifs, the scrolling bar doesn't work. Otherwise, it's nice to have more smilies than Thunderbird makes available by default. Also, it needs to be updated so that it's compatible with TB2. When I used Mr. Tech Local Install to override the version compatibility, Smilie Inserter seems to work just fine with TB2.

MessageID-Finder

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This extension is a real time-saver. I found no bugs with it other than that it needs to be updated so that it will work with Thunderbird 2.0. To that end, I will say that I've used Mr. Tech Local Install to enable it and it works just fine with TB2.
