very good, but Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Very good idea that again supplements what should have been an integral part of Thunderbird and never will, because the developers don't care for this kind of user friendliness. Unfortunately this add-on does not address the rest of the deselect issue. It should do deselect of delete, move, archive and perhaps other functions. So very good idea, very good execution, but not useful yet.

This add-on already does all of what you say. If it's not working for you, please file a bug: https://bitbucket.org/squib/deselect-on-delete/issues/new

Thank goodness! Thunderbird should work this way Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I often need to selectively read messages, so it's good to have accurate unread marks. And when I've read a message (or even unread if I can tell it's not worth reading or has no content, etc), I want to delete it. That doesn't mean I want to read the next message. This is exactly what I need!

(And complements how the Fastmail web interface can also do this.)

Great idea! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The idea for this addon is great, but in my opinion it does half of what it should do. It would be great if the developer included the code to "Deselect on Move" as well, which would make for a more consistent behaviour!

Thank you!

When will 1.1b1 be final? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

How long before 1.1b1, that fixes a fairly significant bug, become final? Or status changed to final so MAO can review it?

Great addon, fixes what's been bugging me for long time. Thanks for addon.

Suggestion:
Add optional feature to deselect only if next message is unread. If it's already read it can select it since it won't change it's state (read/unread).

A much needed add-on, but... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

A much needed addon to stop autoselection of a meessage you may not want to display, but it only works when you have the message selected and hit the delete button. It doesn't work on TB9.0.1 when delete is selected from the context menu.
Shame really, it's ALMOST worth 5 stars... will come back and rate it at 5* if/when this gets fixed!

Edit: Other extensions installed are:
Adblock Plus 2.03
Deselect on Click 1.0
Sun Cult 1.3.20111118
Test Pilot 1.3.4
Webmail 1.4.6

Any of these look likely suspects to cause a clash?

This works for me on 9.0.1; do you have any other add-ons installed that might be interfering?

often it is desirable to select on delete when using the button, to rapidly delete multiple messages. but most definitely not when using the contextmenu. so i use this method in userChromeJS. it avoids a permanent listener; the ultimate extension would provide a pref for both contextmenu and button behavior.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
FolderDisplayWidget.prototype._noSelectAfterDelete = false;
FolderDisplayWidget.prototype.hintAboutToDeleteMessages =
function FolderDisplayWidget_hintAboutToDeleteMessages() {
this._nextViewIndexAfterDelete =
this._noSelectAfterDelete ? -1 : this.view.dbView.msgToSelectAfterDelete;
};

var mcD = document.getElementById("mailContext-delete");
if (mcD)
mcD.setAttribute("onclick", "setSelectAfterDeleteBehavior('contextmenu')");
var bmD = document.getElementById("button-mark-deleted");
if (bmD)
bmD.setAttribute("onclick", "setSelectAfterDeleteBehavior('button')");

function setSelectAfterDeleteBehavior(aWho) {
gFolderDisplay._noSelectAfterDelete = aWho == "contextmenu" ? true : false;
}

Great plugin! It's what I've been waiting for to supersede the Unselect extension. Works great with TB3.1.11 on Mac!

I hadn't used the TB tabs for messages because deleting a tabbed message wouldn't close the tab. For this reason I couldn't use many of the tabbing features on the QuickFolders add-on. With Deselect-On-Delete installed, simply pressing DEL on a tabbed message not only deletes the message but closes the tab as well.

Simple, effective and... almost perfect. I use Lightning (calendar) in a tab as well. It would be nice to return to the previously accessed tab or first tab (Inbox) when the tab closes on delete instead of the last open tab.

Yes this is the answer I've been waiting for. Thank you for making it safe for me to upgrade to T-bird 3! I'd used unselect message for years and now we have a replacement!
