Must have Thunderbird/Seamonkey Addons

If you don’t know about Thunderbird, then you’ve been living under a rock. Its a small, lightweight, Email application provided free by the Mozilla foundation. I was looking around for Thunderbird add-ons this evening and found a couple that I found to be a “Must Have” for anyone that uses Thunderbird as their primary email client. I’ll list them off in no particular order: Enigmail – OpenPGP message encryption and authentication for Thunderbird and Seamonkey.

If you don’t know about Thunderbird, then you’ve been living under a rock. Its a small, lightweight, Email application provided free by the Mozilla foundation. I was looking around for Thunderbird add-ons this evening and found a couple that I found to be a “Must Have” for anyone that uses Thunderbird as their primary email client. I’ll list them off in no particular order:

Enigmail – OpenPGP message encryption and authentication for Thunderbird and Seamonkey.

Quote Colors – Configure text and background colors for different quote levels in mail/news messages which are applied when reading or printing messages. Some other basic options like modifying message background, text and link colors are also…

Header Scroll Extension – Adds a scrollbar to the extended all header view so that it doesn’t take all the space when viewing all headers. This is a workaround for bug #223132…

Headers Toggle – Gives Thunderbird a keyboard shortcut (H) to change how headers are displayed.

Display mailing list header – This extension implements RFC 2369 for Thunderbird: Special mailing list header fields in the mail are parsed, and the links are displayed in the extended header view. You can click them to simply go to the archive, request help or unsubscribe…

Auto Zip Attachments for Thunderbird – Auto Zip Attachments allows you to easily compress (zip) attachments. A new button named “AutoZip” is added to the compose toolbar.
Upon pressing the button all the attachments would be compressed into a single file. Then the attachments are replaced with the zipped file.

Search for Sender – Adds two items to the threadpane context menu, ‘Search for this sender’ and ‘Search for this subject’. This basically takes the sender or subject of the selected message, copies it to the QuickSearch window and starts the search.

Contacts Sidebar – Displays the address books in a sidebar in Thunderbirds 3-pane-window and can be toggled with the F4 key or a toolbar button.

MinimizeToTray / Minimize To Tray Enhancer – Minimizes Mozilla windows into the system tray. Also includes a right clickable tray icon menu to further load only the windows you want visible…

And some note worthy add-ons that I would not use but I know other people would enjoy.

DIY “beatbox” drives old neighbors crazy

DIY "beatbox" drives old neighbors crazy -

We're pretty sure that he meant "boombox", but regardless, this funky little hack from music enthusiast Gregor Dauth will be making him a lot of new friends at the next break-dancing competition. For this feat of audiophile-DIY, Dauth gutted an old Grundig tape machine, added four 150-watt speakers, installed an amp he purchased on eBay, and flashed it all up with some blue fiber-optic lighting. The end-result? More ass-shaking low-end then you could possibly want.

Darpa funds invisible, shoot-through shield

Darpa funds invisible, shoot-through shield -

Filed under:


In a move seemingly influenced in equal parts by Halo and David Lynch's film Dune, Darpa has announced that it's ponying up $15 million to develop one-way-invisible, self-healing, shoot-through shields for use in urban combat. While the Pentagon's research division acknowledges that there are "significant technical obstacles" in the process, it's fairly gung-ho about developing a technology combining metamaterials, 'coded' obscurant systems, and a bunch of other stuff no one really understands. Trust us, you'll thank them if the Harkonens try and overthrow your spice-mining operation.

Essential List on Firefox Extensions for Webmaster The Essential List and Resources on Firefox Extensions is a popular post here, due to one reason - Firefox has too many extensions and it is difficult and time consuming for a user who just wanted to install some cool extensions to get started on their Firefox journey. Because our original list was more toward normal and daily usage - and being a part time webmaster and blogger, I want to introduce some of the extensions I used to assist my webmaster responsibilities and tasks.
