TORPEDO - TOoltip-poweRed Phishing Email DetectiOn

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Extremely useful add-on.
Many thanks for your efforts!

One star removal:
Please, just improve issue on "losing domains added by user" after Thunderbird updates.
This is quite annoying...

TORPEDO - TOoltip-poweRed Phishing Email DetectiOn

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very good extension. It's efficient to avoid falling into phishing scam.
Used to work perfectly before update to TB 78...

Now, actual version running under TB 78.10.2 seems to make problems.
I am TB is keeps notifing "add-on freezing" every time I hover the mouse pointer over a link.

Please, review this release again!

Expression Search - NG

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Nice to realize that this extension is again available!
Thank you guys for your valuable efforts.
I already send you my support in form of a small donation.

Please, try to keep doing!

Let's hope that Mozilla developers take a bit more care of the add-on-API in the future, so that we don't lose lot's of excellent extensions anymore.

Enhanced Priority Display

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hi Jonathan,
Thanks for your nice work. the idea behind this Add-on is very good.
Fact is, that standard messages marked important don't catch the eyes.
This extension makes them much more visible. I like it very much.

Now, TB78 comes again as a "killer" for almost every add-on...

Please, once you can have time for it, please rewrite it for this new TB-version!

Many thanks!

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

3 stars for developer's valuable efforts.

Going through steps given by developer it does work on TB 68.5.0 (32-Bit) Win7.

From TB 68 the start is mandatory:
1. hamburger menu
2. add-ons
3. click on TabAddressbook

Nevertheless, it could get a bit nicer.
It would be very good to have a button (icon) at the top bar, to switch tab on/off more easy.

Many thanks!

Expression Search / GMailUI

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hello Wang,

Nice to see that you are the brain behind this extension either.

It made searching multiple times easier than the standard Thunderbird search "crap".

Now, as I see you may still concentrate quite much time on your extensions to "overcome" the enhancements of v.68 ...
Boring to see, how Mozilla does NOT CARE on its supporters, and abruptly alters Thunderbird's API, so that NO extensions work anymore...

So, WE your most trustful supporters (the users of your extensions) want to thank you one more for your nice work. We apologize for Mozilla's weak strategy in regard to its free-APIs, and we want to give you support to keep your nice work.

Many thanks again!

BR, Careca

Awesome Auto Archive

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hi Wang,
Thanks for this nice Extension!
One could say, it is better than the main Application (Thunderbird) itself, but it would not be much nice from me to blame such "dinosaur of the computing era"!

We all appreciate a lot your excellent work, and would be very happy, if you can manage to "re-write" your code to "re-fit" this new Thunderbird (v68.).

I saw in your git-repository, that you already gave a try, and noticed it is still some work to do... Please, don't give up!
How can your users/followers help you?

Fact is, that if one offers a free-API, and expects that it gets fairly used, helping to develop the product, then he should KEEP IN MIND that the API MAY NOT keep continually changing!
It must offer congruent backwards compatibility!

Sorry for that, but I had to "vent out" my opinion on Mozilla's strategies.

So Wang please keep going! :)

BR, Careca

Signature Switch

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Hello! Thanks for developer's efforts!

Now, I have an issue.
It does not seem to give a choice to place the signature "above" the quote (just after my reply text).
This is a bit boring...

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.7.1). 

User Agent Switcher

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Really good extension.
A must have, if you want to increase anonymity.

Suggestion: Make last choice "permanent" between sessions (if desired).

Thank you!

Master Password+

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This add-on come to correct bad behavior of Firefox's master password manager. It gives you the possibility to customize it's use accordingly to your own needs.

I noticed that the author does not update the project since more than 1 year yet. I don't expect he will give continuation to it anymore...
It would be very nice, if this project could be forked, and at least the minor issues corrected.

A complaint to Firefox Project Management/Development:
Unfortunately, now-a-days product managers don't care about user needs nor to compatibility with prior versions, they must go for trends.
Developers must rush to build new versions, new features, a bunch of new crap, and aren't able to keep track of backwards compatibility.
Even the hard work of their colleagues, which give their time to build nice add-ons like this one, even this get's disregarded, and as a consequence, add-on functionality turn to be broken.
As a result, add-ons developers can't keep pace with Firefox's "high frequency" versioning, and stop production.

Who is losing in this process?
We, the users, exactly the target public, gets neglected, and loses in this process.
