My Reviews

PDF Viewer(discontinued)

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Installs itself, hard to unload, works REALLY badly.

Try FoxIt Reader to see what a pdf viewer SHOULD be like.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.236.1-signed.1-signed). 

Saved Password Editor

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent - thank you!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2.5.1-signed). 

Attachment Sizes

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Fantastic. Fixes the ONLY thing Outlook does that Tbird can't. I'm totally agree with GrannyGamer.

Thank you!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0). 

Allow HTML Temp

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Like Karl, I would love to be able to choose to compose in HTML at the point of composing. This is the only thing Outlook does better than Tbird!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.1). 

Attachment Sizes

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent - fixes the snag in TB that I've always regretted - it's too easy to send huge attachments without realising.
Version 0.0.8 available from http://forum.addonsmirror.net/index.php?showtopic=5638&st=0&#entry27528 is the business.

Duplicate Contact Manager

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works great, if a little slow.

Would love to see auto save contacts managed on the fly - ie send a message and immediately get asked if address should be saved and how.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6). 

TB Reset Quote Header Extension

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Wow.

What a palaver to get a proper reply header with date and time etc. Crikey!

But it works with Tb 2.0.0.16 (on my system anyway!).

Here's what I did:

1) Download TB_Reset_Quote_Header_0.4.3.xpi

2) Save to add-ons location (in my case, C:\Program Files\Mozilla Thunderbird)

3) Copy TB_Reset_Quote_Header_0.4.3.xpi elsewhere.
Rename to TB_Reset_Quote_Header_0.4.3.zip

4) Open TB_Reset_Quote_Header_0.4.3.zip

5) Copy the two .txt files (quoteHdrHtml.txt and quoteHdr.txt) back to C:\Program Files\Mozilla Thunderbird (or wherever you saved the xpi file)

6) Install add-on. Restart.

7) Go to Tools > Add-ons > TB Reset Quote Header yadda yadda > Options

8) Under Text Quote Header Template Filename click BROWSE, and find C:\Program Files\Mozilla Thunderbird\quoteHdr.txt (or whatever)

9) Under DATE FORMAT change to

%dd/%mm/%yyyy %hr:%mn:%ss

to get UK layout and 24 hour clock

10) Click on OK

When I reply to a message, this gives me the following header:

> ----- Original Message -----
> From: Sid Nerk
> To: My name here
> Sent: 09/08/2008 17:32:07 +0100
> Subject: TB Add-ons

You can then edit the text file accordingly. Mine now reads:

> ----- Original Message -----
> From: @[email protected]
> To: @[email protected]
> CC: @[email protected]
> Sent(dd/mm/yyyy): @[email protected]

which gives:

> ----- Original Message -----
> From: Sid Nerk
> To: My name here
> Sent(dd/mm/yyyy): 09/08/2008 19:32:07 +0100

Ideally I'd like the month name in there (Aug) instead of the confusing UK/US conflict, and lose the +0100, but I'm not going to fiddle any further...

So: tiresome, but it works.
