Gmail Notifier Version History

44 versions

Be careful with old versions!

These versions are displayed for reference and testing purposes. You should always use the latest version of an add-on.

Version 70.0 KiB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 1.5.0.*

Gmail Chat only shows using http:// urls.

Version 0.5.5 70.0 KiB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 1.5.0.*

Gmail changed the js that stores data.

Version 0.5.4 70.0 KiB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 1.5.0.*

Version 0.5.3 70.0 KiB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 1.5.0.*

* Work around a xul:grid related crasher.
* The notification preference item will be hidden if the notification service isn't available (not supported on current OS).
* Fix the notifier to no longer always overwrite Gmail's "Remember me on this computer" cookie to true. Note that if it set your "remember me" value to true, you need to manually log into gmail and uncheck it when doing so, as the extension will honor the setting.

Version 70.0 KiB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 1.5.0.*

Fix for 1.0.x upgrade issue.

Version 0.5.2 70.0 KiB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 1.5.0.*

Legal blurb in about window saying this extension is not endorsed by Google.

newMail attribute on notifier renamed to new-mail to allow CSS styling from userChrome.css

Version 0.5.1 53.0 KiB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 1.5.0.*

# Unread count is now retrieved from the Gmail atom feed rather than what Gmail reports. This fixes the issue where Gmail reports insanely huge numbers.
# New installations default to showing mail only in the Inbox.
# Inbox name is now retrieved from Gmail, meaning users of internationalized Gmail will get the translated version of "Inbox"
# [BUG] Labels containing non-ascii characters were displaying wrong.
# [BUG] Logging out and logging in as a different user would log you back as the original user.
# Added the following locales: zh-TW cs-CZ zh-CN de-DE fr-FR it-IT ja-JP nl-NL ko-KR es-ES
