ReminderFox RIP
« on: Tuesday 21 November 17 17:53 GMT (UK) »
Can anyone suggest a replacement for ReminderFox which, until recent updates, worked intuitively and admirably on Mozilla Firefox?

Thunderbird is an email client from the same people that make Firefox. I think Hallmark was suggesting you download Thunderbird and then install a calendar add-on to give you the same functionality as you get with ReminderFox (you'd need to manually "move" all your reminders from ReminderFox to Thunderbird, however).

Of course, you wont need to set up Thunderbird to download your emails if you don't want/need to, it's just to give you access to the Calendar add-on. I use the Lightning calendar add-on for Thunderbird.

I won't update to Mozilla quantum until Reminder Fox is available as an add-on.  I am adding some dates to the Thunderbird calendar but I don't think it's as intuitive as Reminder Fox.  What I like about Reminder Fox is that if I click on it, it shows me instantly a list of all my reminders, whereas Thunderbird only shows 1 month maximum at a time and looks more like a calendar.  Just preference I know, but like Malcolm I like Reminder Fox.

Thanks everyone for your thoughts on this.  LizzieW comes nearest to my view on ReminderFox, that's why I like it.  Perhaps, I'll just wait until ReminderFox becomes available again.
