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.

Any chance to fix that?
That would be great

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.

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!

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. :)

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...

The folder view switching arrows should never have been removed. At a minimum it should be configuration setting but better yet have the usability issues resolved instead of just throwing away the feature.

What the heck were they thinking when they removed a most basic feature such like easy and mouse-acrobatics free folder view switching from Thunderbird? How is one supposed to cope with a more complex folder structure and multiple accounts? Seems the people at Mozilla recently try their best to work *against* a positive user experience...

Thank you for this add-on. This is a must for people that still want order and oversight in their mail client, even with more then a few mail accounts and folders.

Desde que desapareció en TB 8 me resultaba muy incómodo!
Porque habrán sacado del core una funcionalidad tan buena?

Thanks jikamens !!!!

Very useful Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I couldn't do without.
But I could do without a few of the views. <br>If you add a drop-down list with all views, so I could jump from one view to the other instead of cycling around, I'd be happy.

thank you for that valuable addon!

is it possible to make this addon configurable? i only need to switch between "All Folders" and "Favorites".

So i'd love to see the possibility to configure the views this extension cycles!
