My Reviews

Attachment Image Viewer/Slideshow

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Finally, a replacement for the long missed Slideshow addon. Works great.
Kudos to the author.
Update: Img-view won't show if only 1 JPG, works great for multiples.

CardBook

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great addon until ver 55.5. All address books disappeared. Restored Thunderbird. Installed ver 55.6 with same nasty results. Again, restored Tbird. Last working version is 55.2.

Update: Restarting Tbird did the trick. Thanks for the quick response.

StandardTexter

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

While editing, can't copy or cut anything. Paste works as expected.

Update: C-E responded quickly with a work-around. Tbird is the culprit. Thanks.

Works great. HTML code is great. One suggestion:
Attach a name/label instead of a number. HTML can get quite extensive and trying to remember what each does (by number) is a little challenging.
I use a cheat sheet now, and that works fine.

Achim, this is a great addon. Having fun using it and learning HTML. A nice feature would be to have a way to preview the results. Currently, I have a compose window open to see the results. But I sure can live with that.
Thanks again for all your hard work...

CardBook

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

No user documentation. TB and Cardbook contacts don't agree. Not very usable in its' current (outdated contacts) state. Wish I could start from scratch and go from there.
And I don't care about any syncronization. Perhaps not use this add-on?
Update (after much investigating):
1. Deleted all address books in Cardbook.
2. Cardbook>hamburger>add new address book. And there it was: Import Thunderbird's standard address books.

Other than my initial mass confusion, Cardbook appears to be very usable.

Textmarker

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Right-click is out, but perhaps a "down arrow" not unlike the "Save" or "Print" icon?

Textmarker

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great add-on. Couple suggestions when time permits:
1. Reduce size of sample color bars in options (show more per screen)
2. Right-click "Mark!" for options. This would be a quick way to change colors.
3. Better yet...allow maybe 5 favorite colors to be chosen in options, then show these colors in drop-down on right-click of Mark! icon.

This add-on has some real potential and I'm so glad the author created this.

Textmarker

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A question: How to change the color in ver 2.31?
Answered, from the author:
You have to go to 'Tools' - 'Add-ons' - find the entry 'Textmarker' - click on the 3 points on the right side - choose 'Options'.

Great add-on. Won't move on to TB 68 until this add-on works. Is there any plans to make it work in TB68?

Speed Start

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

In some future update would it be possible to only have the right-click show the menu when speed start is "unlocked". I use the "private tab" add-on and the right-click is superseded by speed start. So, for now, I must open a web page, then right click the tab to get the private tab option to show.

Otherwise this add-on is working perfectly...good job!

Speed Start

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A really slick add-on. Nice features. And very easy to use, once you learn the ropes. Only one issue: I use theme and font size changer and have increased the font size. The properties menu in Speedstart doesn't adjust for this. So the info is off the screen.
