Google Tasks Sync

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I was used to use CalDAV for Calendar e Google Task Sync for tasks. Being Google Tasks Sync incompatible with TB 60, I decided to move to Provider for Google Calendar to bypass the problem. This slows a little bit the load of my Calendars events but at least allows to meto have the tasks synced and inside TB!

StartupMaster

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

@ Sisim:
It is TB 60 compatible!
You just need to rename startupmaster-1.6.5-fx+tb.xpi file to startupmaster-1.6.5-fx+tb.zip.
Then you need to open it with a zip manager (I use 7zip).
It will be composed of different files and subdir.
Identify install.rdf file (in the root dir). Open it with an editor like notepad because the extension .rdf is really a .txt extension.
Identify the Thunderbird section of the file and change this line:
<em:maxVersion>56.*</em:maxVersion>
to:
<em:maxVersion>61.*</em:maxVersion>
Save the file and repackage StartupMaster with a zip manager, You should get a startupMaste.zip file.
Change again its extension from .zip to .xpi and now install it.
This way it works also with TB 60!

Flat Folder Tree

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It seems not to work anymore with TB 60. Promotion or collapse of folders has no effect, at least IMHO. I hope it could be updated even if I suspect it will be not.

Google Tasks Sync

I also would like to have an update of this useful app for TB 60 and I also candidate myself sometime ago for its translation into Italian but I did not receive any answer.

Calendar Tweaks

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

As I wrote in private to the author (I'm the Italian translator of this addon), CT doesn't work anymore starting form TB 60.
Hoping it will update ASAP, I continue to give 5 stars.

LookOut (fix version)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

As previously reported, while this addon (v. 1.2.20) is claimed to be compatible with TB v. 64 or lower, it appears not to work anymore starting from TB 60.0. In particular if you try to access its options, TB doesn't respond and you should kill it!
Hoping it will be updated, I continue to give 5 stars.

gContactSync

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I have been using this extension for at least 2 years with success. Unfortunately, few days ago, as soon as I installed TB version 52.0 (final release), I got a problem caused by gContactSync both using its "official" 2.0.11 version and also its developmental version 3.00alpha4.
The problem is that I can't drag and drop anymore contacts from an addressbook into mailing list(s) both for the "GMail synced addresssbook" and also for all the other addressbooks I have.
So I had to inactivate gContactSync at the moment, unless when I need to sync my Google Contacts otherwise I cannot assign contacts to mailing list(s) and/or I need to move contacts from an addressbook to another one.
I hope that it could be possible to patch this annoying bug.

AddressBook in Tab

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

As I wrote in the subject, I found thi addon useful for my job, unfortunately when I installed it using TB52I got a black area where the button area of addressbook tab/window is and so I could not make any choiche. Probably the style colorcss must be reconsidered. If the author wants I can send him a screeshot of what happens.

Flat Folder Tree

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I discovery only today this litte jewel.
It is very useful for those who do not like the hierarchical structure folders in GMail under Thunderbird.
I presently use the latest TB version (45.1.0) and FlatFolderTree works perfectly!
You simply need to expand the .xpi file (which is exacly as a .zip file), open its .rdf file (which is a .txt file) with an editor (like notepad or notepad++) and change the label:
<em:maxVersion>3.1</em:maxVersion>
to, for example:
<em:maxVersion>50.*</em:maxVersion>
Being Italian I also added the translation for my language :-)

Expand mailing list recipients

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Version 0.3.1 works fine under Thunderbird 45.x.
I tried to contact you for sending my Italian translation of your app. I made it to provide myself and people of my department but your address in Mozilla addons is not a "private" one, so I don't know how to contact you...
Anyway it is very useful for me because of I need to handle many recipient lists!

Contact Tabs

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is not a review. I just want to stress the fact that in the "Developer's comment" the author states: "Please do not use the reviews as a way to notify me of bugs as it does not give me a way to get back to you".
So, as I am the translator into Italian of this addon, I wrote here a note some days ago concerning the problem of ContactTabs with TB 45.0. Then I wrote to the author (Janek Schwartz) who reply to me: "...It works in TB 45b04 but doesn't in TB45. Oh, how I love this!" I sent him the console errors I found and I suppose he is going to update this very useful addon as soon as he has a bit of time.

Contact Tabs

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

After the upgrade to TB 45.0 iit seems not to work anymore, at least inmy hands. I'm using Windows 10 Pro 64 build 1511 and until yesterday when I was using TB 38.7 it was ok.

ThunderPEC

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Tutto ok annche con la versione 45.0 eccetto che per il fatto che l'icona e la scritta "Scrivi PEC" nella barra dei messaggi non può venire spostata o tolta.

gContactSync

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I use this addon to syncronize my 6 device (3 with Android using Google contacts) and 3 with Windows 7 (work and home desktop and notebook) using Mozilla TB.
Besides I suggested this app also to my wife who has 2 Android devices with Google contacts and her notebook running TB.
No problem at all with text fields of the contacts. I had only occasional problems with some photos of the contacts which disappear or duplicate in the local (TB) database.
Please note that I also use among the other extensions (more then 20) MoreFunctionForAddressbook and I have a contact list of 410 persons on my Google account on GMail.
A last note: I have no mailing list on my GMail contact list.

Calendar Tweaks

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have been using CT for a long time with satisfaction and I'm also its Italian translator.
Like the previous reviewer I also noticed that this addon was broken by TB 31.0 In particular I have 6 calendars (all of them being on Google) and I saw some events were skipped in the Today Panel. At the moment I noticed this on a calendar made only of annual recurring events (birthdays), Some of them were reported, others not.
By deactivatng Calendar Tweaks everything went back ok. I suppose the oroblem could be due to a different manageing of colors which caauses something to disappear, The same happened with the addons ContactTabs which was immediately updated by its author,

AddressBookTab

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

IMHO the idea of this extension is very good and should be part of standard TB features. Anyway, IMHO this extension has some faults which should be corrected. In fact I tried to install AddressBookTab (ABT) more than once using it with different versions of TB but the basic problems I found are always the same. In particular, in this moment I'm using version 1.5 of ABT with TB for Windows 24.1.0. FYI, I also installed other extensions, the more relevant from this point of view being "MoreFunctionsForAddressbook" and "ContactTabs". But even if I disable these extensions I still have the following problem. That is, if I click on the ABT icon nearby to the Lightning's ones, the AB which appears in the tab is always the first one of the list, ie the Personal Addressbook (PAB).
Beside, if I click again (after having activated the option to have more than one addressbook in tabs) it always open tabs with duplicates of the PAB. I need to change manually the tabs with other addressbooks. The worst thing however is that if I close TB, next time I open it, yes I have multple tabs but all of them are pointing to the PAB yet, ie ABT does not save my choices between TB session!
What I suggest is to have the icon of ABT with a dropdown menu reporting all the addressbooks (for example I have 6 of them besides the default ones - ie PAB & Collected addresses) with check marks, so one can choose that/those addressbook(s) (s)he wants to have in tabs. Besides, this choiche should be remembered between TB sessions.
Thanks for the attention.

Mail Redirect

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I have this extension installed since ever ;-)
But I was never successfull with redirect of messages to lists and unfortunately I have many of them being sysadmin :-(.
I followed the suggestion of the developer a couple of post below to put the name of the list in between <> but in my hands it doesn't work. A message of error appears.
BTW today an update to mail reedirect version 7.7 was installed automatically on my computer (with icons fitting the TB standard theme). The test reported above was done also with this last version whichi is not present neither here nor in the usual developer page.
Wher is located now? TIA

MS Office 2003 JB Edition

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I do not have an account at imageshack.
Anyway I put 2 images at:
http://fog.bio.unipd.it/pub/MSOffice2003JB
(the address IS case sensitive).
The first one shows MSOffice2003JB theme running in a TB 15.0.1 (Windows 7 Pro x64 with Compact Header 2.0.6.
As you can see the +/- area on the left to expand/reduce the number of header lines does not apper. It appears only as a little orange square but ONLY if you move the mouse and look for it. Otherwise that area is completly azure. This way you also have some difficulties to see the label "From:" "Subject:" etc... which appear in a blu hue which is only slightly different from the azure background.

The second image shows how the compact header appears in the original theme.

MS Office 2003 JB Edition

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I like it very much. Unfortunately it is not completely compatible with 2 extensions I use: CompactHeader &amp; ContactTabs.
In both cases the color of theme hides some selection points or strings. No idea if the problem is the theme or extensions.
If the developer wants, I can send him a couple of screenshots.

Ignore Aero

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It is quite good. Unfortunately it doesn't support any 'old' Lightning icon. So when you are in the "Mail" tab you have the good old icons, while moving to "Calendar" tab you have the new standard (native) theme icons.
