Monterail

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

The theme is great but it has some bugs and annoyances that were reported to the maintainer. He acknowledged them but never released a fix.

Meanwhile, Monterail Dark and Full Dark were released and polished by another dev and are now in much better shape.

Monterail Full Dark

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

If you want a fully dark theme for Thunderbird, this is the one. With this last update, Full Dark is truly fully dark, including the search tabs and the Today Pane. It also has none of the niggles that plague the initial Monterail theme.
These themes should be installed by default with Thunderbird. They're that good.

If I could I would give this a 6 out of 5 stars.

The Monterail Dark and Full Dark themes look great. It's great that now there is an easy way to install the Monterail themes and that they work better with the Write pop-up.

These themes are essential to make Thunderbird look like an e-mail client for 2018 (also adopting a vertical view helps with that).

The developer is very responsive, polite and fast in addressing issues. He quickly resolved conflicts that did not allow to have multiple Monterail themes installed!

With 1.1.2 he polished the tab bar with maximized windows AND made the Calendar and Tasks sidebar adopt the dark color of the theme. And they look gorgeous!!

Monterail Full Dark

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The Monterail Dark and Full Dark themes look great. It's great that now there is an easy way to install the Monterail themes and that they work better with the Write pop-up window than css themes that were previously available.

Checkbox Column

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works perfect, and is great even in non-touch screens to select multiple e-mails.

Monterail Full Dark

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The Monterail Dark and Full Dark themes look great. It's great that now there is an easy way to install the Monterail themes and that they work better with the Write Window.

The developer resolved the conflicts with the other Monterail themes. Now you can have multiple Monterail themes installed!

Just reinstall the theme following the steps mentioned by the dev.

Also, when the thunderbird window is maximized in Windows 10, the tab/minimize/maximize/close titlebar is cropped (noticeable when hovering the mouse over them).

Also, the Calendar sidebar does not assume the theme colors.

Monterail Full Dark

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It conflicts with the other Monterail themes. Can only have one Monterail theme installed at a time.

Also, when the thunderbird window is maximized in Windows 10, the tab/minimize/maximize/close titlebar is cropped.

It also conflicts with Monterail theme from Paenglab. I have to follow the steps mentioned in the instalation whenever I want to change the theme, and that's a hassle. Please fix this so that I can have multiple Monterail themes installed.

GNotifier

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Hopefully the dev is still active and will update it to work with Thunderbird 60.
It makes notifications look at home in Windows 10.

Events spanning multiple days

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Unfortunately it has conflicts with Provider for google Calendar. :(

Checkbox Column

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Would be nice if one could adjust the size of the checkbox. The primary use might be for touchscreens but it's also useful for normal use. Therefore, the checkbox size could come in a smaller size as well. :)

Reply to Michael Ganss: the only choice I have in the extension options is "Use a large font in the messages list". Nothing about changing the size of the checkbox. I would like for the checkbox specifically to be a bit smaller.
Improved your rating to 4 stars by the way. Your extension is more recent than Quick Multi-select and more functional.

Monterail

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

when Thunderbird 60 release is maximized, the toolbar is misaligned.
The top of the tabs is cropped out and the Maximize, Minimize and close buttons are a couple of pixels above where they should be.

Monterail

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Theme already works in Thunderbird 60 Beta 10, however the hover on the minimize/maximize and close buttons are not properly sized.

I would also love it the theme creator would increase spacing in folder tree view and message subjects in message pane. :)

QuickMultiselect

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Allows to select multiple e-mails in inbox.
Works with Thunderbird 60, Beta 10.
5 stars.
I would just like to ask the dev to make the selected button monochromatic.

ExQuilla for Exchange

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works perfectly. Should be included by default in Thunderbird together with TBsync.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (60.0). 

Provider for Google Calendar

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It's amazing, works great with Thunderbird 52.

This development version works well with Thunderbird 60 Beta:
ftp[dot]mozilla[dot]org / pub / calendar / lightning / nightly / latest-comm-central /

Monterail

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Simply beautiful. It brings Thunderbird to 2018.

Thunderbird Conversations

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It works ok however when Thunderbird starts for the first time it displays a blue bar at the bottom.
I just need to minimize and maximize and this blue bar disappears.

Also: it does not work with latest Thunderbird 60 Beta.

The functionalities are sorely required to turn Thunderbird into a modern e-mail client.

Squared Australis Tabs (Tb)

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Just started using thunderbird and I'm losing some time configuring it.

Most themes are outdated and the old rounded tabs are an eyesore compared to the new Firefox Quantum theme. However thunderbird 60 does not work with Google Calendar provider...

This addon allowed me to have square tabs again!
I won't give you five stars because I can't disable the Aeroglass transparencies in Windows 10. But great job with everything else.
