It works... if you really want! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Just rename the add-on from .xpi in .zip, open it and change in the install.rdf file "maxVersion" (I wrote 60) and when saving rename the .zip in .xpi. Then install the file in TB from the add-on page, and look: local folder is hidden! I just don't know how long it will work... I need some time to check it. Delete the add-on if you need the local folder again.
Update needed. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Used after importing Windows mail data from Vista to T-bird on Windows 10. Lovely solution to tidy up the view. Thanks for making this app!

How to get them back? Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Served me well for a long time. But now I need to get my Local Folders back (I only need a new empty local folder to sort certain messages) – how can I accomplish that?
By disabling the addon! :)
Useful extension Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Good extension. This extension is usefull for Thunderbird users that do not known how to use locale folder or do not want to use local folders.
Carefull that if you had renamed the "Local Folders" account name to something else you need to rename the account name back to "Local Folders" and then restart thunderbird to hide the account in the folder list.

It works great on Arch Linux with latest kernel, latest Thunderbird. For those of you that say you don't need this, Not everyone wants to hack their Thunderbird. I wish more plugins just plain friggin worked.

Works as advertised Rated 5 out of 5 stars
It does exactly what it says on the tin. Thanks!
The comment here calling it unnecessary is incorrect. As it says in the description, it simply hides the entries in the folder pane. It definitely works fine on Linux now too, as that's where I'm using it.
Doesn't work on Debian GNU/Linux Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Doesn't work on Debian GNU/Linux with Icedove (=Thinderbird for Debian) 24.2.0. Too bad :-/This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.03).
You don't need this Rated 3 out of 5 stars
To go: Tools > Account Settings > Server Settings > Under Message Storage, go to Advanced > Inbox for a different account > Choose "Local Folders".
Now set up a mail rule Under: Tools > Message Filters to move the messages into a folder of your choice.

For the non-english users, you just have to rename your local folders in english. For the French, rename your "Dossiers locaux" to "Local folders" and then reboot Thunderbird.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.01).
