ReminderFox Version History

69 versions

Be careful with old versions!

These versions are displayed for reference and testing purposes. You should always use the latest version of an add-on.

Version 1.7.1 633.9 kB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 3.0.*, SeaMonkey 1.0 - 2.0a1, Thunderbird 1.0 - 3.0a1

New features:
(*) Better experience for new users. Based on user feedback, on a brand new install of ReminderFox, there is now an initial reminder that will show in the status bar as "Welcome to ReminderFox!". This reminder will contain some welcome information and a link to the FAQ pages.

Improvements:
(*) You are now able to view all Quick Alarms that you have set. When there are available quick alarms, there will be a new menu in the status bar context menu for Quick Alarms. This will show all the quick alarms and when they are scheduled to occur. By selecting one of the quick alarms in the menu list, you are then given the option to remove the alarm.
(*) Calling 'Open' from alarm now headlessly opens the reminder for viewing/editing without opening the entire Reminder List window
(*) You can now view which reminders you have snoozed and the current snooze alarm time. To do this go to the Reminders List window and make sure the alarm column is showing; an alarm that is snoozed will have a red alarm icon to indicate that it is snoozed; hovering over the icon will show the time that the snoozed alarm will go off.

Bug fixes:
(*) Fixed 19000, 19048: ReminderFox was causing problems with some Thunderbird context menu items (copy, Move Again To...)
(*) mozilla QA bug fixed: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=431527
(*) Fixed: Open Associated Reminder on a Thunderbird email now properly opens the Edit reminder window (instead of the Add Event dialog)
(*) Fixed 19078: some events with commas were adding a slash in the calendar file: /,
(*) Fixed: wasn't saving quick alarms and preferences immediately; if FF crashed/terminated, changes were lost
(*) Fixed 18857: now properly writing out alarms (for use with other reminder services)
(*) Fixed: Firefox could crash if you had your list columns sorted and then completed a reminder using the spacebar keyboard shortcut
(*) Resized the ribbon icons to be a little smaller (16px height) to better conform to the typical FireFox icon size (they were adding a bit more space on the toolbars than other icons)

Version 1.7 624.6 kB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 3.0.*, SeaMonkey 1.0 - 2.0a1, Thunderbird 1.0 - 3.0a1

New features:
(*) There is a new preference in the Defaults options tab to allow you to customize the items that you want to hide behind the More>> button by default in the Add/Edit Reminder window. This is useful if there are certain properties that you are not interested in seeing by default (Categories, Repeat, etc)
(*) Drag & drop support: You can now drag URLs, Firefox address bar text, links, email/web page text, emails, invitations, iCal (ICS) files, ICS links (subscribe) onto the ReminderFox statusbar to perform the associated ReminderFox action (adding reminder, importing events, etc). Thanks to Günter Wahl.
(*) ThunderBird: There is a new context menu item "Open the associated Reminderfox event" in the message pane and thread pane. This menu item will be activated if an email has a reminder associated with it, and will allow you to go directly to the associated reminder. This now gives a complete, round-trip story for being able to go from a reminder to its associated email and back. (Thanks to Günter Wahl.)
(*) Send++ (Thunderbird). You can add a new Send++ button onto the Compose Mail window (choose Customize on the Compose toolbar). Clicking this will send the email and add a new reminder tied to that email. This is useful for following up on an email thread. The sent message and any replies to your message will cause the context menu for "Open Associated ReminderFox event" to be activated and you can open up the associated reminder. (Thanks to Günter Wahl.)

Improvements:
(*) Alert slider height can be configured via about:config by editing the preference:
extensions.reminderFox.alertSliderMaxHeight
This sets the maximum number of pixels that the alert slider will take up; change it to a large value if you want more lines to show when your alert slider shows (Enhancement Request 18008)
(*) If you hover over date-related description labels in Add Reminder dialog ("Date:", "Start", "End"), a tooltip will display the day the date falls on (this helps with the "is March 11th a Thursday or a Friday??" questions when picking a date)
(*) Added value of "1" for all other time-based drop-downs (as it is frequently used for setting alarms "1 day before", etc)
(*) Updated to work with Firefox 3.0 Beta
(*) Corrected some default loading problems when opening the Reminder List window as a web page. You can do this by entering the url of the reminder dialog into the url bar:
chrome://reminderfox/content/addreminder-dialog.xul
You could bookmark this url or make it part of your starting homepage, if you wanted to view your list in a webpage. You can also set this as your start page in Thunderbird, which gives a nice startup view (thanks to reader OIK for the tip!)
(*) Message Priority is now taken into account when adding a reminder for a Thunderbird email; it uses the priorities 'very high' and 'high' to set ReminderFox item "Important"
(*) Context menu items now have icons
(*) Thunderbird scheduling: attendee can now receive and process event cancellations sent by the event Organizer

Bug fixes:
(*) General performance improvements (on date compare, clone). Thanks to Günter Wahl
(*) Performance improvements in Add Reminder dialog
(*) Fixed problem - wasn't always updating reminders (showing alerts, etc) if network connection errors, especially if resuming from suspend. This would cause alarms to be delayed until ReminderFox was opened.
(*) Fixed bug 18159: snoozing reminders was not working; alarms were never showing again
(*) Fixed bug 18793: some repeating reminders were not showing alarms on certain days
(*) Fixed bug: adding ToDos with no dates was causing the calendar to screw up (showing NaN for the year)
(*) Firefox 3: Fixed FF3-specific bugs:: dialogs had bad formatting, improper sizing, network passwords weren't being saved, download/uploading wasn't working
(*) Fixed bug with French locale that was causing problems in Seamonkey
(*) Tried to eliminate potential alarm timing issues (where alarms would not show up) by shortening the hourly thread to occur more frequently (30 mins) instead
(*) Fixed bug: alert slider was showing each time a new window was opened, regardless of the user-specified interval

Version 1.6.3 564.2 kB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 3.0b3, SeaMonkey 1.0 - 2.0a1, Thunderbird 1.0 - 3.0a1

1.6.3:
Updated version for Firefox 3.0b3

Version 1.6.2 564.2 kB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 3.0b2, SeaMonkey 1.0 - 2.0a1, Thunderbird 1.0 - 3.0a1

Bug fixes:

Version 1.6 563.2 kB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 3.0b2, SeaMonkey 1.0 - 1.5a, Thunderbird 1.0 - 3.0a1

1.6:
New features:
(*) In addition to the starting time of an event, you now can specify the end date and time as well. The list display tooltip will show both the start and end times, and the calendar display will show the entire span of the reminder's dates.
(*) Events can be used for invitation/scheduling following the iCalendar/iTIP definition with REQUEST, REPLY (accept/decline) and reschedule. So a reminder can be sent by an organizer as an invitation/schedule, and the attendee(s) are now able to Accept or Decline the invitation. Doing so will update the reminder status and set up an email to be send to the attendees or back to the organizer with the response status. The organizer can easily track the status of all attendees. (Thanks to Günter Wahl)
(*) Reschedule/changing some invitation/schedule items (date/time, location, recurrence, description) by the organizer will now send an update to all attendees on the list. The attendees are not allowed to modified those items. (Thanks to Günter Wahl)
(*) A date/time stamp can be easily added into the notes field. Place the cursor at the required position and press [F8]. [as suggested by Michael Bierman]

Improvements:
(*) When selecting event times from the dropdown, there are now submenu items for other common times (eg: 9:00, 9:15, 9:30, 9:45). Of course, you can still click on the toplevel times as before, or manually enter in any specific time.
(*) Added toolbar icons to launch ReminderFox and Add a reminder. You can add these to your toolbars by right-clicking on a toolbar and selecting Customize... and then dragging the icons onto their desired location.
(*) When using a year calculation in a reminder, you can use a new notation to get just the year value. eg: "My birthday was < 1978# > years ago" will give you "My birthday was 29 years ago". And "My < 1978 > birthday" still gives you "My 29th birthday". You can now also calculate future years in combination with the new notation: "Mortgage will be paid off in < 2037# > years" --> "Mortgage will be paid off in 30 years".
(*) The ReminderFox list window and the pop-up alarms are now treated like normal Windows (and not dialogs.) These windows can be minimized/maximized, and alarms now properly notify the OS when requesting focus (flash in the taskbar) so they are not as easy to be missed.
(*) Alarms now contain the alarm text in the window title so you can more easily detect different alarms in your status bar.
(*) In the Alarm action menu, when you select "Open" it immediately goes to the reminder, instead of having to hit the Okay button.
(*) The variables for List Display->Date Appearance no longer need to be separated by a character. You can now use something like "[longYear][longMonth][date]" and things should work fine.
(*) You can now add newlines in your status bar tooltip labels. For example an Upcoming Reminders Label of:
[shortDay] [shortMonth] [date] [longYear]:\n[reminderDesc] ([time])\nCategory: [category]\nOccurs in [daysUntil] days\n
would give you:
Wed Jan 11 2008:
Lost is on! (9:00 PM)
Category: Television
Occurs in 4 days
(*) Better integration with Sunbird/Lightning. If you have your reminderfox calendar file shared as a visible calendar of Sunbird, whenever you make changes with ReminderFox, they will be reflected inside of Sunbird. (You don't have to manually do a Refresh Remote Calendars to see the updates.)
(*) Added '1' in the snooze time values in the alarm popups (useful for when snoozing for "1 day" for example)
(*) Updated to work with Sunbird 0.7 and Firefox 3.0b1
(*) Added DTSTAMP to all ICS events for better inter-calendar support (as mentioned in the ICS spec).


Bug fixes:
(*) bug 17788: URI-encode network passwords
(*) bug 15123: allow for multiple calculated years defined in a single reminder: "Tom's < 1978 > birthday and Dan's < 1980 > birthday"
(*) Now generate the same UID format for both reminders and ToDo's.
(*) bug 17983 - default to today's date when adding reminders from the Add Reminder context menu and the Add Reminder button
(*) bug 17708: replaced overloaded "Done" label on the Reminder List window with standard "OK"
(*) Fixed the common problem where a user specifies the protocol as part of the address string in the network settings preferences. If this occurs, the protocol is trimmed from the address and the protocol specified in the drop-down is used
(*) Fixed "Unresponsive script" hang when adding repeat reminders of Monthly By Day with a specified interval (Thanks to Jürgen P.)

Version 1.5 497.7 kB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 3.0a4, SeaMonkey 1.0 - 1.5a, Thunderbird 1.0 - 3.0a1

New Features:
(*) Subscriptions. You can now subscribe to a remote calendar (such as http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/teams/pit/ical.ics). This lets you subscribe to the many 'live' calendars, such as those found at sports.yahoo.com, www.icalworld.com, www.icalshare.com, google's public calendar search, etc. You can easily subscribe to a calendar by right-clicking on a link to a calendar and selecting Subscribe With ReminderFox (webcal:// and regular ics file links are supported). You can also add and edit subscriptions by going to the Options and adding/editing a custom list with a URL.
(*) Filters - in the Reminder List window, there is now a drop-down control that lets you filter what items the list shows; you can show all events or only those events for the selected month, week, or day (based on what you have selected in the calendar). You can also show just the events that are coming in the next week or the next two weeks. The filter lets you have even more control over what is displayed in the list, so you can see only what you're interested in. You can set the default filter in the options.
(*) Quickly add a reminder from the status bar! There is now an action off of the status bar icon's context menu for Add Reminder. This brings up the Add Reminder window without having to go to the Reminder List first. This lets you quickly and easily add reminders.
(*) Custom Repeat Options. Finally, you can set up your own custom repeat intervals. You can now set repeat intervals for days, weeks, months, years (eg: repeat every 6 weeks; repeat every 2 months), and specific days for weekly reminders (every 2 weeks on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday). You can also set a Repeat Until date for your repeat reminders, which is a date that the reminders will repeat until and then stop This could be used to set up a block of dates for when you are on vacation, etc.
(*) Repeating todo's. You can now set repeat options on ToDo items. This can be used for the alarm popups to show at repeat intervals (daily, weekly, etc). Note that unlike reminders, by default you will only see one instance in your list with the original date that you set, because a ToDo list is more of a static list. However, if you filter the list (selected month, week, day, upcoming week, upcoming two weeks), it will show you the individual repeating instances.
(*) When sending a reminder, you are now given the option to send as an Invitation, which allows you to set the Organizer and Attendees of the event.. This can be used to send meeting invitations via email to other participants which they can then easily add to their calendar client (if it supports ical)
(*) Add Reminder From Contacts - For Thunderbird contacts, you can now add a Reminder for that contact which will contain all of their pertinent information. From your address book, right-click on the contact and select Add Reminder from the context menu. (Thanks to Günter Wahl [as suggested by Denis])
(*) Properly display scheduling events. For events that were sent as invitations or schedules, the ReminderFox reminder window will now show extra details showing the Organizer and Attendees. It will also show their current status (required, etc), as well as your current status. (Thanks to Günter Wahl)

Improvements:
(*) The standalone Add Reminder window now has a drop-down list for selecting which list to add a reminder to. So when adding a reminder, you can quickly choose from your reminder or any of your custom ToDo lists.
(*) Map Location - the Location field now has a launch button beside it that will bring up a Google Maps page of the location.
(*) You can now rename custom lists (select your custom list in the options and click Edit).
(*) When removing a custom list, you are now prompted that all associated reminders will be deleted as well, and they are automatically removed for you.
(*) You can now import/download events that are specified using other US Timezones (such as Yahoo! Sports calendars, which use US/Pacific) and they will show up with the correct times.
(*) Closing alarms with ESC or 'X' no longer acknowledges the alarm by default. Now the alarm is simply dismissed for this event. (Thanks to Corey W.)
(*) Added category/location to variables, so you can now use those in your tooltips.
(*) Added location to quick-search, so you could search for all events happening in Raleigh for instance

Bug fixes:
(*) Fixed: removing custom list wouldn't always properly remove it
(*) Fixed: Bug 17143 - wasn't removing Remind Until Complete status when completing reminders from alarm popup window
(*) Importing reminders from ICS attachments would not recognize some attachments as calendar events
(*) Fixed: Wasn't showing URL or location on alarms for ToDos

(*) New repeat option: weekday (Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurs, Fri).
(*) New properties: location and URL. You can now add a location and URL to any reminders or ToDo's. These options are available by clicking the MORE>> button to expand the Add Reminder window. Clicking on the Launch URL button next to the URL field will bring up that page in your browser.
(*) Add Reminder for a web page. You can now right-click on a web page and select Add a Reminder... from the context menu. This adds a new reminder with the current web page set in the URL field. You can also select any text in the web page and then select Add a Reminder; this will add the selected text in the Notes field. This is useful when you need to remember particular web addresses as part of your reminder or ToDo.
(*) Send and receive iCal-based Calendar events via email. From ThunderBird, you can now accept any invitations sent by any iCal-based calendar (google calendar, Outlook with Internet Calendar enabled, etc). From inside of the message pane for any emails that contain an iCal attachment (or embedded in the text body), you can select "Import Reminders from iCal" to add them to ReminderFox. Conversely, from ReminderFox, you can select reminders and choose Send Reminder... from the reminder list context menu. This will open up ThunderBird composed message containing those events as an ical attachment. This is useful for inviting others to an event in your list, and for sharing reminders via email. (Big thanks to Günter Wahl)

Improvements:
(*) Alarms remember snooze time. Now when you snooze an alarm dialog, it gets stored inside of the calendar file. This means that the snooze time is now remembered even if your restart Firefox, and now works better if you are synchronizing your calendar to other computers.
(*) Quick alarms persisted. Now when you add a quick alarm via the status bar context menu, it will be remembered even if you restart Firefox.
(*) Tooltip now shows list items sorted in the order that they are ordered in the list (you can stop asking me about this now, Jake :)

You can also quickly tag any reminder with a category by simply typing any text in the category field. (Thanks to Günter Wahl)
(*) Quick search filters. You can now quickly enter search text to filter your list of Reminders and Todo's based on the text you enter. You can search and filter on Description, Notes, or Categories. For instance, this can be useful to quickly see just the list of reminders belonging to the Birthdays category, or any reminders with "mom" in the description. (Thanks to Günter Wahl)

Improvements:
(*) Better list tooltips - the tooltips in the reminder list window have been improved a bit to show the date, categories, and completed date (if applicable)
(*) From the status bar context menu, the Show Alerts option has been changed to Suspend Alerts and Alarms. This now handles alarm notifications as well. Now you can enable this if you want to temporarily suspend all notifications. Also, if you use both Thunderbird and Firefox, you could suspend alerts/alarms in one application so as not to receive multiple notifications in both programs.
(*) Now tested, verified, and working on Flock (Thanks to Jane Ocean).

(*) Thunderbird: mail icon now shows in alarms and edit window, so you can quickly jump to related emails. (Thanks to Guenter Wahl)
(*) Thunderbird: TB 2.0 now properly changes the label color when adding a reminder. (Thanks to Guenter Wahl) In Thunderbird 2.0, ReminderFox utilizes the new tag system. When you add a reminder to an email, the email gets tagged as 'reminderfox'. You can use the Thunderbird capability to edit that tag to be any color you want.
(*) New web site layout and redesign by Jojaba. Huge thanks to Jojaba for this!
(*) View As HTML now uses new web style as well

Bug fixes:
(*) fixed: when using automatic network synchronization with some providers (like icalx.com), it was possible for an empty remote file to overwrite your local reminders. There is now a check in place to prevent this from happening.
(*) fixed: couldn't delete reminders attached to emails that had since been deleted
(*) now you can enter in various separators besides the current default when adding times for events (such as '.' and ':' and 'h')
(*) fixed problem where completing repeating reminders was clearing the Remind Daily Until Completed flag

ReminderFox 1.0!!
(*) Quick Alarms - you can now create a Quick Alarm via the status bar icon's context menu. This allows you to quickly set an alarm to be reminded of something that will happen shortly. Example: "check pot roast" in '20 minutes'. Note that these are just quick temporary alarms, and are not added to your reminders.
(*) Alarm actions - You can now more easily interact with reminders from the alarm dialogs. There are now options to mark the reminder/ToDo as complete, delete it, view it, or simply acknowledge it. This way, once you receive an alarm notification, you can quickly complete/delete it if you no longer need it.

Improvements:
(*) You can now select multiple items when performing most operations in your lists (deleting, marking as complete, reordering ToDo's, etc).
(*) When deleting a repeating reminder, you are now given the option to delete all instances, or just delete the selected (and previous) occurrence.
(*) New column for Alarms in the reminder/ToDo list. This column shows an icon for any reminders that have alarms set for them; hovering over the icon will show you the details of what the alarm is set for.
(*) Calendar no longer highlights reminders that are marked as complete
(*) Automatic backups of reminder files are now kept in your profile's reminderfox directory (snapshots for today and yesterday)
(*) Thunderbird: You can now select text inside of an email and when you select Add a Reminder from the context menu, the highlighted text will be included as part of the reminders notes. This is useful for quickly grabbing dates, times, and places from an email. (Thanks to Guenter Wahl)
(*) Thunderbird: When a reminder is created from a reminder, the email's label (color) is changed to signify a reminder is associated with it. Now when the reminder is deleted or completed, the email's label is cleared back to the original state. (Thanks to Guenter Wahl)

Bug fixes:

(*) fixed: importing from other calendar systems could erroneously show alarm data in the notes field

Version 0.9.9.1 287.7 kB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 2.0b2, SeaMonkey 1.0 - 1.5a, Thunderbird 1.0 - 3.0a1

Version 0.9.9 289.8 kB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 2.0b1, SeaMonkey 1.0 - 1.5a, Thunderbird 1.0 - 3.0a1

Version 0.9.9:
New features:
(*) New Lists! In addition to reminders and ToDo's, you can add additional lists that will show up as separate tabs. You could keep lists like: Movies (for upcoming movie releases), Albums (for upcoming music releases), Groceries (to keep track of items you need), or anything else that you can use a list for. This is good for list-oriented people like myself :) You can add/reorder your lists from within the Options.

(*) There is a new preference option to hide completed items. In addition, there is also a context menu in the edit window to temporary show or hide completed items.

(*) You can now set dates on ToDo and List items. ToDo's with Dates will show up in your tooltip just like Upcoming Reminders. You can also now set alarms for ToDo and List items. (The Date column is hidden by default for ToDo's)

(*) Reminders and ToDos now store the date that you completed the item. (The Date Completed column is hidden by default)

(*) You can now move reminders to any list via the Move to List context menu item. Also, you can move any ToDos or List items (that have dates) to the Reminders list.

Improvements:
(*) Automatically Synchronizing to a network has been greatly improved. Synchronization now happens in the background; when you bring up the Edit Reminders window, the synchronization status is displayed at the bottom of the screen instead of a small modal window. Similarly, after you close your Edit Reminder window, your reminders are uploaded in the background so you no longer have to wait for this operation to complete.
(*) Better column interaction. You can now click directly on columns to toggle Complete state, Remind Until Complete and Show In Tooltip status. You can also click on a reminder's email icon to view its associated email.

(*) Column headers now show icons for Mail, Completed, Show in Tooltip, and Remind Until Complete. It was difficult to really identify the columns with just the text, and now the column size can be much smaller

(*) Now when you mark a repeating reminder as complete, it will only mark that instance (and previous instances) so that future occurrences are not marked as well.

(*) Notes now show up in alarms.

(*) (SeaMonkey) Fixed some bugs to now work properly in SeaMonkey/Mozilla. Thanks to Philip Chee.

(*) (Thunderbird) The Add a Reminder menu is now available when selecting any message in the message list, as well as the message and preview panes. Thanks to Guenter Wahl.

Bug fixes:
(*) If the preference is set to show no past occurrences, the list wasn't showing reminders set to Remind Until Completed

(*) fixed bug where alert could still possibly show if it had been marked complete since last alert

(*) fixed bug where alert could close when you closed the Reminder List window

(*) fixed bug where Importing from network would fail if the remote file was not created by ReminderFox.

(*) fixed bug 14783 - Upload window with status "sending" stays open (ftp)

(*) fixed bug 14784 - duplicate alerts could show multiple times

Version 0.9.8 273.4 kB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 2.0b1, Thunderbird 1.0 - 3.0a1

0.9.8:
(*) Thunderbird Integration:
(-) From Thunderbird, you can add a reminder for any message that you view. From the message pane, right-click and select Add a Reminder from the context menu. This will allow you to add a reminder for that email so that you can be reminded to look at it again at a later date. (Note that the context menu option is only available from the message pane and preview pane; it is not yet available on the message list view context menu, but we're working on it.)

(-) You can add a reminder for any message inside of Thunderbird, be it an email from any account, an rss feed message, a news group message, etc.

(-) When viewing your reminders in the ReminderFox list, all of the reminders that are associated with an email are indicated by a small mail icon in the Mail column. (This column is hidden by default, but can be made visible by clicking on the twisty at the top right-hand side of the reminder columns.)

(-) From ReminderFox, for any reminder that is associated with an email, you can right-click and select View Mail from the context menu. This will retrieve and display the associated message.

(-) Thanks to Guenter Wahl and Markus Hossner for their contributions to get Thunderbird integration working.

(*) You can now search for ToDos just like reminders (via the Find context menu or shortcut key)

(*) New icons to denote reminder and ToDo properties. In the Edit Reminders list, if you show the various propery columns (click the column picker icon to the right of the column headers to choose columns), they will appear as various icons to make it easier to distinguish properties:
