Why was No Message Pane Sort by Mouse created?

No Message Pane Sort by Mouse was my first ever addon for Mozilla Thunderbird. I've been using Thunderbird for years now and was always frustrated when I accidentally resorted my messages while trying to select a message. I guess, it happens more often to people who, like me, have the newest message on top.

Sometime in 2009 I noticed a Mozilla sponsored addon workshop for Firefox. I attended it and came back with the idea for No Message Pane Sort by Mouse, which I got of the ground over the course of a weekend.

And here we are: It's in its fifth revision, enjoyes lots of downloads and more than a hundred daily users, who contributed positive reviews as well as emails and feature requests.

It's a nice little addon.

What's next for No Message Pane Sort by Mouse

I consider the addon to be feature complete. If you have any suggestions or found a bug, please contact me.
