Open With

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Doesn't work in Thunderbird 78.5.1. For one thing, the instructions for installing Python are way too vague, plus the version of Python isn't specified.

Even when I managed to figure it out for myself, this addon still gives an error when I use the Test Installation button. Frankly, an addon that is preconfigured for the most common browsers (Firefox, Chrome, Opera. Etc.) and complete with all needed components would be a lot more useful.

There used to be very simple Open WIth Browser addons for Firefox; why the needlessly-complex and indirect method?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (7.2.3). 

Stylish - Custom themes for any website

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's an excellent addon, but it used to come with an very useful toolbar icon that gave you a dropdown menu for many useful functions, include Enable/Disable all, Manage Styles and turn on/off each style specific to the page you're currently on. What happened to that?

I depend on this addon for Firefox, but I hate it that there's nothing equivalent for Thunderbird!

Doesn't work at all on YouTube Videos in Firefox 13.0

Canadian English Dictionary

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The 2.0.2 version of the dictionary is really screwed up. It's flagging plurals and proper conjugations as spelled wrong. It didn't even have the word "has" in its word list. Cripes! It doesn't even have "its" in the list! Somebody screwed up, bad!

TryAgain

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Please don't use Facebook as the home page for your addons; I can't post an issue without getting an account, and I refuse to get a Facebook account (it's not safe; Facebook downloads spyware onto your system). Mozilla offers sites for the home pages of addons that aren't a risk to your system.

TryAgain

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I hate to give an addon I love and previously depended on just a low rating, but the fact of the matter is that Try Again just isn't working anymore, since 3.4.6 was released. Whenever I try to go to a page where Firefox can't get a connection, I'm getting an Alert Window saying the location can't be found, instead of the Try Again window coming up, and I have to manually highlight the URL and hit Enter again.

What's going on?

Update Notifier

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Until recently, having both this addon, and Unhide Passwords active made it so that any time you customized your toolbars, the menu items would stay greyed out and inaccessible even after you closed the customization window, and only restarting Firefox would fix it.

Whoever fixed this; creator, or a fix to Firefox itself, thanks. I was going crazy without this Add-On. It's essential, and should be made of Firefox in general!

Please update for Thunderbird 3.1.2. Thunderbird just isn't the same without Stylish!

Please, update this for FF 3.5.1! I'm lost without this addon because I have lots of addons!

Copy Attachment To Clipboard

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Just to add to what's been said; not only can you not open messages in a new window, you can't open *.eml files from your computer, or attached to other messages. The addon is a good idea, but it needs a fix for this issue.
