  • Please help make this addon work with V 52 its so annoying not having it and not being able to move new accounts around when you have alot of email accounts. Is there a Beta version somewhere that works with 52? I didnt see one?

  • Manually sort folders 1.1 isn't a solution either as it is not moving Local Folders back to the top (the real value of Folderpane Tools) and leaving my imap, blogs/news feeds, and other local folders, below . *&^%(*&^)(*&^)(*&

    Attempts to revert (in aptitude, bring up package thunderbird, go to bottom pane / package details - note purged line. + to tell it to install, and voila.) got me 11.0. Unbelievable!

    Googling revealed recent (last month) Ubuntu update to 38.1 from July update to 31.8.

    Downloaded 31.8 from http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/thunderbird/releases/31.8.0/linux-x86_64/en-GB/ to my 12.04 Kubuntu.

    Unpacked via alias unpack='tar xvf' to my favourite appropriate directory, /usr/local/src and gained a thunderbird directory underneath. Ran /usr/local/src/thunderbird/thunderbird, and voila. Update the menu entry, get on with my day, and STOP this breaking upgrade Mozilla nonsense.

    Note: Attempting to get en-gb dictionaries only to get incompatible (not 38.1) version. Phooey, phaw, and gave up.
  • Doesn't work.

  • Try "Manually sort folders 1.1". It sorts accounts the same way and does it also for folders within an account.
  • This add-on used to be great to rearrange the list of accounts but it doesn't anymore stopping with a script error saying "XML Parsing Error: undefined entity

  • Thunderbird 31.3.0 on Arch Linux
    Folderpane 0.61

    Preferences in the Addons-Manager returns an error message:

    XML Parsing Error: undefined entity

    While the custom order of folders is still displayed it can not be canged any more and other options (like excluding certain folders from te messaging of new mails) do not work any more.

    I tried to remove te file localstore.rdf but tis did not fix the problem.
  • I love this add-on but it no longer works in Thunderbird 31.3.0.
  • @franc

    Sorry, you have misunderstood the meaning of 'Start Folder'.

    It is not the top folder in the list.

    It is the one which is always focused on Thunderbird startup. Its content is therefore always displayed in the thread pane on startup.

    You have described the correct method to always show 'Local Folders" at the top of the folders pane.

    That is not what I commented on and you will see that I did not mention 'top position' or anything similar in my previous review.

    If you click on 'Local Folders' in the folders pane, you will see what I want to see in the thread pane whenever Thunderbird starts.

    When it was working, 'Folderpane Tools' used to provide this feature - one simply chose 'Local Folders' as the start folder.

    Unfortunately, 'Folderpane Tools' no longer works and, although 'Manually Sort Folders' does allow one to select a start folder, that facility does not include 'Local Folders' as 'Folderpane tools used to.

    From 'franc's review on November 3, 2014:

    ".. I looked around and like another here posted (user "RDL"), the only reason why I used Folderpane Tools was to set the Local Folder on top position."
  • the new addon is : https://addons.mozilla.org/fr/thunderbird/addon/manually-sort-folders/?src=userprofile
  • This Add-On is now forever broken, it seems.
    So I looked around and like another here posted (user "RDL"), the only reason why I used Folderpane Tools was to set the Local Folder on top position.

    Always I used the much better Add-On "Manually Sort Folders", which I thought just could not set the Local Folder on the first position, but this wrong!

    It only has to be set as Default Folder (on the first tab right side in the middle) and after TB restart the Local Folder is the top one.
    See this on github: https://github.com/protz/Manually-Sort-Folders/issues/30

    So no need at all to fix this Folderpane Tools, just use the Manually Sort Folders Add-On for good :)
  • Well, I'm sad this addon doesn't work anymore, but maybe we can use "Manually sort folders" addon. It looks similar.
  • While the problem of "Error parsing XML: Enttity not defined.." can easily be fixed...

    is back reference to

    which was likely the workaround that was done when the filemessageschoosethis.label went away in a previous Thunderbird version? Well, renamefolderchoosethis.label is now gone, so either need to find something else (or define one....edit all the locale files in the add-on?)

    Or for quick, I just changed the menuitem to be:

    After I did this, the preferences dialog will appear....however mine has an empty accounts list, probably something else changed in the internals (or got fixed?)

    Think I'll just try the other add-on mentioned in another review....until that review mentioned, I hadn't noticed that the Startup Folder functionality had stopped working, just that something was different and I didn't like it. It was adding a couple more accounts to my Thunderbird at work that led to discovering that I couldn't use this add-on anymore....
  • This was a great add-on, but, sadly, with Thunderbird 31+ it no longer works. Not having a customized startup folder is a nuisance every time Thunderbird starts! If it can be done, please fix this add-on to work with the latest versions of Thunderbird. If that can't be done, does anyone know of an add-on that allows one to customize the startup folder in Thunderbird?
  • Great little addon, but please update for Thunderbird 31.1.
  • Everything was perfect until version 31...
  • It doesn't work with Thunderbird 31.0 anymore.

    Also the open tabs are closed after a restart of Thunderbird.
  • Does not work with TB31. See error-msg below..
    Once working again, more *s will be given, as I like this addon and miss it terribly.

  • Muito bom, funciona ao que se propõe. Permitiu organizar a ordem de minhas contas no Thunderbird.
  • Very Helpful
  • I have three accounts. FolderPane only shows two.
  • @remmie -I've been using Folderpane Tools with many other extensions, and I do not have the problem you report, so most likely it is a conflict with another extension, not Folderpane itself that is causing your problem. Troubleshooting extension conflicts can be a 'pane' (pun intended), but I would recommend the half-split method...For an extension that has been in maintenance mode for as long as this one has, and to continue working as well as it has, is amazing - 5 stars...
  • Using TB 15.01 [b/c the newer versions gave me problems]. I really appreciated this extension to rearrange my many email accts in TBird. However for the last so-many versions of TBird (including 17x which I tried before reverting back to 15x) the column headings were not being saved, and I traced the problem to Folderpane Tools.

    Ex: In the SENT folder I set to hide the "From" column and instead show the "Recipient" column. But every time I re-started TBird, the columns reverted to the default ...unless I disabled extensions, then the settings stuck.

    Folderpane Tools 0.61 turned out to be the culprit. After I enabled it, I lost my saved column settings again. When I disabled the extension, my column settings stuck again.

    I like the extension but will keep it disabled except for when I need to use it. Wish I knew enough to fix the code myself! If not for the bug I'd give it 5 stars. :)
  • ordeno las carpetas sin problema, tal como quería! funciona muy simple y sin problema
