My Reviews

BorderColors D

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This works perfectly for me, and also enhances the use of the "Identity Chooser" add-on.

I would like to see TB's Compose window's "To" field hi-lite color match the color of the identity, but that is likely a TB thing only. Good add-on!

ThunderSuite - Customize your Quick Access Sidebar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I tried this add-on on a whim and it works great so far.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.12). 

Message Header Toolbar Customize

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Why this is not built into TB is another one of those mysteries only the TB team can answer. This is absolutely a necessary add-on. Without it, the TB interface is obviously lacking. Thank you H. Ogi!

Attachment Viewer: view in a tab, slideshow

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The icon to launch the viewer does not work reliably, especially on PDF files and Office files (the only reason I have this add-on installed). The button will not be active if certain common characters (such as dashes) are in the attachment filename. It is now so unreliable that one tends to avoid using it.

The Zoom-Out button does not work unless one has first zoomed in, and then only zooms out to the original size, which is pretty much useless. Also the toolbar icon is completely invisible on most dark themes, and barely visible on the rest.

These issues exist on Windows 10 and 11 across multiple machines. My son says the same problems exists on Xubuntu. I wish I could say the 115 version was worth the wait, but it isn't.

The add-on now nags for a donation after every TB update.

Now we wait 6 (or more) months for a fix again, and all while being nagged to donate... Do better or stop nagging.

Last selected message

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I give this 2* because of the premise -- it is a good idea. However, it simply does nothing that I can see.

QNote

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent. However, the date and time formatting rules do not all work. For ex: h does not show 12 hour format with leading zeros; it shows "h" ... a shows as "a" not lowercase am or pm etc. (more do not work). A seemingly small annoyance for some; for others it is important.

I submitted an issue on Github.

Notebird

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Pretty good so far. This is a simple way of adding notes to single emails, and the toolbar icon changing color for messages with notes is cool. However, it gets three stars because you cannot add a note to a thread, only to a single message at a time.

Adding a note to a thread so that the note shows for all messages in the thread is a must.

Dark Night Arcturus X

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Update: Dev fixed the calendar event color issue (thanks man!), and so back to 5 stars because it really is the best theme I have ever seen.

Five stars all the way ... except for the latest update. While gorgeous, the latest update (and as others have said) screwed up the colors of the Calendar categories and now they are hard to tell apart. Please fix this. It is a real hit to the Calendar "at a glance" functionality. Thank you.

Restart Button

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Useful. It should be a default function of Thunderbird.

Note: You might find it slow to restart if you have several functions happen on shutdown, such as empty trash, empty cache, and so on.

CloneMessage

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Stupendously simple, and does exactly what it says it will do. Very useful for preserving the state of a composed message before you make changes.

This is a great idea for those of us who need some backup redundancy.

Thank you!

Autocopy 78+

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

If it worked at all in 115 I would give it a better rating. It copies nothing,

Provider for Google Calendar

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Worked fine until I shut down Thunderbird. After that it would not sync with Google Calendar at all no matter what I tried. I uninstalled it, and set up Thunderbird 115 to use a Network Calendar with Google Calendar. This works fine and no sync issues.

Start with Inbox

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

2nd Update: The beta version is now working again so back to 5 stars.

Update: With the release of 115.2.3 this add-on no longer works at all, and often totally disappears from my extension list. I have removed it, but will try it again in the future, and once it works again I will change my review.

Does what it is supposed to do, and therefore, I am glad I installed it! However, it does not always work. Sometimes you have to disable it, and then enable it again to get it to work (a TB restart does not fix it) otherwise it will just open the account inbox with no message highlighted.

Identity Chooser

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The identity list is much better... but still too large. Not a bug, but it is aesthetically unattractive to have the list cover 75% of the composition window. I would donate to be able to control the size of the identity list.

If you have several identities this prevents you from using the wrong one and making a tool out of yourself.

Thank you!

Auto Address Cleaner T

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It does exactly what it says it does. Thank you!

Clear History Button

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It does exactly what it says it does. Thanks for fixing the icon!

Phoenity Icons

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Really freaking nice! You will realize how much you like this on the rare occasion an icon is not supported and you have to look at the drab stock icons. Thank you!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.11). 

Textmarker

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Make your point with the subtle use of Textmarker. I do not need it often, but when I do it is exactly what I need. Thank you!

uBlock Origin

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

How would I use the Internet if this extension did not exist? Hands down the best ad-blocker there is, and NO douche-baggery like most of the others. Thank you!

Xpunge

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is one of those "permanent" extensions that one actually sees as part of Thunderbird, and not an add-on. I cannot live without it. Thank you!
