My Reviews

Message Header Toolbar Customize

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Really perfect re-implementation of this missing/removed feature in Thunderbird 78 using the collapsed="true" attribute. And the best is, that it supports other extensions, which add buttons to the toolbar (like my "Allow HTML Temp" addon).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.4). 

New QuoteColors

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

There is now a completely revised successor add-on that works really completely with Thunderbird 68. * and Thunderbird 78. *:

https://addons.thunderbird.net/thunderbird/addon/quotecolors/

Please note that the other / old variants of the add-on must be uninstalled!

Hi intika!

I've a complete rewrite of the add-on to have it completely compatible with 68 and 78.

The original author (Malte Ruecker) seems not be answering. So you've created (technically) a new 2nd addon here on ATN. My addon rewrite would be the 3rd more or less identically addon. This would confuse searching users.
The question is now, would you be so kind to close (make it invisible or delete it) your addon here on ATN. Doing this would reduce the (unnecessarily high) number of identical addons. After doing this, I would create and upload my "new" addon here on ATN.

Talking to ATN stuff led to the conclusion that this would be the best solution.

The rewrite of the addon can be found on (different branches for 68 and 78):

New Email To All:reply, ready for new subject/body

Great idea! Is it technically an answer (related ID to the original mail) or a completely "new" mail, which is created using all the addresses?

LightningButton

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

You should not rely on Lightnings own locale strings. This leads to XUL errors for many users after upgrading to Thunderbird 68.*, when Ligntning is (maybe temporarily) disabled.

Have a look in this topic:
https://thunderbird.topicbox.com/groups/addons/T5b15e51d21e1a3e8/is-there-a-manifest-key-for-require

And the XUL error by your add-on:

Enhanced Date Formatter

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Thanks for the first minor update ;-)

"locale" was meant as translations.

Enhanced Date Formatter

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great Add-on; Maybe you could add one more option for dates more than 7 days in the past. This would be great. In the next version locales could be added.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.0).

AttachmentExtractor

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

For Your Information:

A few days ago I took the last official release (1.3.5.1), worked on it and I will release a follow-up to this Add-on with the Name "AttachmentExtractor Continued" here at ATN (addons.thunderbird.net).

Maybe the original author "eviljeff" could give his okay, to re-use his website information on my website (German Thunderbird Community https://www.thunderbird-mail.de). Information regarding the continued Add-on will be in this article: https://www.thunderbird-mail.de/lexicon/entry/223-attachmentextractor-continued/

And maybe I could create a bilingual (English and German) subforum in our Support forums to hold threads regarding "AttachmentExtractor Continued".

Classic Password Editor

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

In Thunderbird 60 (Beta) Win-10 is the complete menu item text missing in "Tools" menu. Only the icon is visible at this menu item.
In the "hamburger" menu is a complete empty menu item (no text and no icon) from this add-on. A click on the defect item(s) opens the saved logins dialog.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.3).
