First, the tooltip is absolutely useless and actually annoying. I'd prefer a context menu entry to let me check a link when *I* want to, because I don't click on a link when I'm not perfectly sure that it's legit.
Second, when I explicitely click on a legitimate link, I want it to open in my browser, no questions asked. TOrPeDO prevents that and does nothing, not even warn me why it prevents links from opening.
So in the end, TOrPeDO does nothing for security, but only creates confusion because it keeps interfering with my wetware security measures (aka brain) because I keep asking myself every time "did TOrPeDO actually what it should or is it just overreacting again?").
I tried it for two months now, and it didn't help anything but kept making trouble and made working more cumbersome, so off it goes from my Thunderbird.
Thanks for your review. We're sorry Torpedo frustrated you - that is the last thing we wanted to do. You might have been prevented from clicking by our timeout, which only activates the link after you've had time to examine it. We probably didn't explain very well that you can tailor the waiting time in the settings if you're expert enough not to need it.
In our latest update, which should be available as soon as Mozilla approves it, makes it possible to click on the link itself and not only on the tooltip link, which should solve one of the problems you had.
