My Reviews

Theme Font & Size Changer for ThunderBird

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very useful, I wish I had found this years ago when slim addons manager was wiped out by an update. This is even better because it works everywhere so I can seel all my folders and much more of my message list. (except the email preview pane-still looking for how to set the default zoom/font for that)

5 stars if it could zoom to less than 100% (we are not all visually challenged - some of us are challenged by the awful white spaces in the pages!)

Manually sort folders

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Just putting a number in front of the foldernames puts them in any order you want without this disaster.

Dev could have saved me wasting my time and wouldn't have got this review if he had warned that
1. if a folder is renamed it is moved to the end of the list AND all its subfolders' manual re-ordering is lost.
2. It has stuck local folder inbox sent items archives in some apparently random position in the middle of my 700+ folder list.
Instead-NO WARNING, no instructions until you actually waste your time and wreck your folder order trying it - how am I going to move 700+ folders in a wee box clicking pictures of arrows?

Have you heard of drag and drop?

BTW that is in TB52, with POP3. No excuses.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.2).

I am staying on TB52 until this essential addon is updated!
TB is a nightmare without it.
I particularly appreciate that in the Folder selection list, you can type a letter or number and it jumps to the next folder starting with that letter/number. (I number my folders in the priority I want them in the folder pane. :))

AttachmentExtractor Continued

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Essential addon - thank you for resurrecting it! but important options are missing - v1.5.3, TB60.9.1
1. after extracting - option to TAG the message please? (so we know its been extracted)
2. set modification date to message received date is greyed out
3. min file size is grayed out
4. extract inline attachments - option to ask?
(Do you have a github issues page? :)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.6). 

searx.me 0.9.x

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

compared search "internet explorer" "reading mode" "button missing"
searx.me-lots of relevant results
Google-1 page, none relevant (1st listing=page titled adobe acrobat !)
StartPage-no results at all, only Google sponsored ads.

Only con-save page only saved the search box, the results part of the page didn't save.

Mozilla Archive Format, with MHT and Faithful Save

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I use multiple different browsers, I also use ms word to open and annotate saved web pages. People I send mht files to also use different browsers.

This add-on
-REMOVED the basic FF htm, html save options.
-saves mht un-openable by internet explorer or word.
-is unable to save in ANY format openable by ie.

If it can OPEN IE mhts, the authors must know to code to SAVE in same format?
If this was a bug, it should have been clearly pointed out in the description. It looks more like some sort of attempt at forcing people to abandon ie? If so, it failed.
Ininstalled before bothering to try with any other browser.
Please let me know if someone makes an add-on that actually does what this one says it does.

In the meantime I shall continue to painfully copy paste urls of each page I need to save/reaccess/annotate, from FF to IE and save as files I can actually use.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.1.0). 

Personal Level Indicators

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Found the options buttons at the bottom of the information page. Description on Github link - " "triple style", which shows a single arrow (›) if a message is sent only to you, a double arrow (») if it is sent to a group and a triple arrow if it is sent to a mailing list."

Triple style works but seems a bit random: single arrow correctly shows up on a first email addressed to me only, double arrows appear on my reply to the sender of that email, (including an unsent draft), and (correctly) to an email to 1 with 2 ccs; triple arrows on an email received addressed to 2 emails and 2 ccs, and (correctly) to emails sent to a large list. Interestingly, only 1 spam message had 3 arrows: a spoof email sent from my own address)
It works with Header Tools Lite and picks up ccs (and my bccs - interested to see if it picks up SENDER bccs?) in its calculations , which is good.
I will continue with it, it is useful.

(When Gmail view is selected (the default), spam, email from me to myself, group and cc'd emails all show 1 angle bracket. (I have catchall mailboxes, as do most domain name owners, they work with the triple style.)
Same result when I sent it to a 1-off email address (not catchall).

Couldn't find how to "add email addresses as identities in thunderbird"? Does this mean have accounts settings set up for each email account (which I have, and the triple style works with that, I wouldnt want the Gmail style anyway)? I have catchalls set up for 2 accounts (each with aliases =different names@my domain name); and 1 email address for each of my other TB accounts.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7). 

Send and File

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have relied on this and Paolo's other brilliant addons for a while. This one is just great avoiding having to search for and move sent emails.

Yes it could be made better by having a search for any part of folder name... as I use punctuation marks in front of names to set the folder order

(I thought the option in favourites- "same folder as original" had disappeared, but it was there at the top when I used the scroll bar!)
Thank you Paolo Kaosmos.
