Wow, that's all it takes?

That's easier than I thought it would be. ;-) I'll try to find some time in the next few weeks to add the buttons back to Folder Pane View Switcher.

Can not get add-on working after 52.0.1 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I can get the toolbar to show up by following the instructions in a previous response " If the view switcher isn't in the toolbar when you enable it, then right-click on the toolbar, select "Customize...", and add the "Folder Views" tool from the palette"

However that comes up is the standard pull-down list which allows you to switch with 2 clicks. I cannot get the add-on to work as before.

Any ideas?

Sorry

UPDATE: The arrows are back in this beta release:

Original response:

As it says at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/folder-pane-view-switcher/, the arrows are gone and at this time there is no way to get them back. The change was out of my control and I don't like it any more than you do.

Arrows Gone in TB version 52.0.1. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is an absolutely must have brilliant add-on. Unfortunately since updating to the latest version of Thunderbird (52.0.1), the Arrows to control which Folder Pane is viewed have disappeared.

Does not work since last Thunderbird update Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I used this add-on all the time, but it seems broken since my update to Thunderbird 52 on Fedora. Using Thunderbird without this add-on is barely acceptable for my since I used the arrows all the time to quickly switch between view. Going to the menu is so devious.

does what it promises in perfection - but could more Rated 5 out of 5 stars

could be a 6star add-on, if there were a checkbox list in the preferences where you can select what folder views you want to switch between

so it is a 5star add-on because it just makes what it is and promises ... and that reliable and easy

Happy Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It almost solves the problem to quickly switch between your, unread, Favorite and All folders instead of going to View / Folder options.

This is something better version. but hope in future the favorite folders just stay on top rather switching and choosing options

Selection of the folder view pane possibilities would be great !! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Good job, nice functionality :-)

It would still be great if it was possible to select which folder views you want to see in the folder pane !

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This extension works as advertised but it would be so much more useful if the views were selectable. For example, if I could just rotate between the All Folders and Favorites views and not have to scroll through ALL of the views that would be key.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Quite good, but missing a key feature: the ability to choose what views it switches between.

There are seven of them to scroll through(!), including compact versions of some. I wish I could choose to only switch between, say, All Folders and Favorite Folders, without having to scroll through so many others.

Despite that shortcoming this is a terrific add-on, and replaces a function that for whatever reason was removed from Thunderbird.

フォルダー・ペインを合理的に制御できます。推奨します。 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thunderbird のフォルダー・ペイン(窓)を制御できるアイテムです。
ACCOUNTが複数になるとフォルダー・ペイン内が、数多のフォルダーやサブフォルダーだらけになり、管理しづらくなることが悩みですが、このアイテムを使うと「Switcher」がペインの上部に表示され、(そのスイッチをクリックすることで)臨機に、瞬時に、(合理的に定義された幾つかのタイプで)表示し直すので、(好みに応じた任意の表示方法で)スッキリと管理することができます。
推奨します。

Time Saver and Frustration Relief Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hate having to click through two levels of pull-down menus every time you want to switch from All Folders to Favorites or Unified views? This add-on elegantly solves the problem, giving instant access to the folder view options.

Other reviewers have asked for tabs instead of (or in addition to) arrows, but I think it is perfect as-is. Arrows occupy less real estate on the UI, and since navigation wraps around (Recent to All), you never click more than twice to get the view you want.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent!
Being able to switch the view to the aggregated mail folders is simply something which needs to be core functionality...

saves time, but could be so much more Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Once upon a time, Tbird provided TABS to switch between folder sets. I was sad to see that functionality go.

Arrow toggling shaves some time off doing it via dropdown menu, but configurable TABS means you get to the desired folder set with a single click.

Please consider replacing the arrows with tabs. Options which should be included are the ability to select which folder views appear as tabs on the bar and selectable order of their appearance (i.e., unread on first tab, all on second tab, etc.).

Also, for the KB warriors, you could add hotkeys to jump directly to desired folder views.

Thanks for your efforts.

Fantastic! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Beee-U-Ti-Ful addon! Simple elegance.

An essential addon Rated 4 out of 5 stars

A great addon! A small feature request though. It would be nice if there was a way to configure which views are visible when you click on the arrow buttons. For instance, i would like to hide the "recent" and "unified" views, personally i never use them.

Good idea...

... I'll put it on my to-do list. Thanks!

keyboard shortcut Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hi and thanks for writing this great tool. Is there a way to have a
shortcut, ideally managed through 'keyconfig' addon? Thanks!

Giving a 5 star based on the reply to using a keyboard. The tool does its job correctly. Thanks for replying so quickly jikamens!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.10). 

Easy peasy

To create a key binding to scroll backward through the list of views, bind it to execute the JavaScript code 'gFolderTreeView.cycleMode(false);'. To scroll forward, use 'true' instead of 'false'.
Note that you can use these key bindings even without Folder Pane View Switcher installed. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I suggest using this together with the "Advanced Unread Folders" add-on. That one adds a very useful sorting function that can be used with this one.

feature request Rated 5 out of 5 stars

What's implemented works best.
I have a related problem: I have lots and lots of folders in a hierarchy. When I drag things into them the hierarchy expands and a long list ensues.
I wish there was a mode that would allow me to drag messages into a subfolder and then have the folder structure auto contract back.
(now it only auto-contracts if i hover over a folder structure but "change my mind" so all the components seem to be in place...
Thx!
