It works, but with unwanted side effects Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I installed it, it worked perfectly to what it was installed for, that is, to sort the folders and accounts in Thunderbird.
The problem is that since then the accounts do not download any messages anymore. All of them. Even those which were not moved. Thunderbird informs (in Portuguese) that it wasn't possible to connect to the IMAP server because of exceeding the maximum number of connections to the server.
Maybe although moving the accounts positions, it does not move the necessary references. Anyway, as I am not a programmer at all, this oppinion might just be BS.
But now I am left with a big problem.
Does anyone know this issue, and is there a solution?
*Day after: I removed it and tried it again. Didn't work. I restarted the computer. Ditto. I reinstalled Manually Sort Folders. Also didn't work. Then I was tired and switched it off to try to find a solution today. The idea was to sort the folders to the previous position and give it up. But it wasn't necessary! Today it started working! (???) Now it deserves the 5 stars, as actually it works very well.
Works! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Initially, I had the same experience as MCShults, as the "Manually Sort Folders" entry does not appear on my Thunderbird's "Tools" menu after installation and restart. I was finally able to access it by going beyond the initial menu, to Add-ons>Extensions, where I was able to select "Options" and sort my folders. Works well. Thank you!
Nothing, nada, zilch... Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Installed it. Nothing happened. No clue as to how to make anything happen. Can't drag and drop folders. Can't find any other way to reorder folders. No clues in documentation as to a hotkey or where to find a menu. Right clicked everywhere, looked in options. Nothing, nada, zilch.
The addon listing features, in bold, as the first sentence in the description "This extension adds a "Manually Sort Folders" entry in the "Tools" menu of Thunderbird.".
Furthermore, if you use the standard procedure (Tools > Add-ons), you'll find that the addon's preferences button also opens the right dialog.
Perfect Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Thunderbird always lists folders in alphabetical order (a mistake to enforce it IMO) and this is sometimes not what you want . This allows folders to appear as YOU choose, not thunderbird.

Did what I required. I created different account and this brilliant add-on helped me to keep them organized.
Indespensible Addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars
As others have said, it's quite bizarre that TB doesn't include this feature as part of the core.
However, if they now added it, they couldn't do it any better than this addon.
Works awesome! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
An amazing little add-on that does what it says and does it well. Adds a much needed feature to Thunderbird. Dev was helpful and quick response to initial installation problem I had which was actually my own fault. Add-on installs well and I highly recommend it.

manualy shift folders Rated 1 out of 5 stars
On start, somehow I shifted one folder to a different location and then that was it. I wish it would work.....This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1).
easy to use and it works! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I've used this both for reordering the accounts, and for reordering the Local folders, and both work great.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1).
UBER excellent! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I've been waiting for Thunderbird to include an option like this for years. This addon allowed me to easily move the email folders into the exact order I wanted w/o any issue at all. I didn't try the sort feature because I wanted more control. I finally have my folders organized. Thank you SO MUCH for giving me this option.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1).
Hopeless Rated 1 out of 5 stars
It's pathetic that an add-on is even required. Any email client that doesn't allow you to short the accounts is batsh*t. And then this add-on doesn't work anyway. Don't know why I bother with Mozilla in any way at all. Hopeless. I give this 1 star only because I'm unable to give a 0. Using latest version of Thunderbird.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1).
重宝します！ 推奨します。 Rated 5 out of 5 stars
一年ほど前から使用していました。遅ればせながらの Review です。
addon の “解説通りの機能” が得られます。
Thunderbird の「フォルダーのソート順」は、任意での並び替えができないことが不満の一つですが、この addon で解決します。
PS. 同一作者の「Thunderbird Conversations」も強く、推奨します。
only works for some accounts Rated 3 out of 5 stars
very handy when it works, but only works for a few of my accounts. For the others, the app shows the folders sorted how I want them, but even after refreshing, the folder pane is unchanged.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1). This user has 2 previous reviews of this add-on.
