  • Can not be installed on thunderbird 60.0b10(beta).Sad.
  • I use this for about two thirds of my outgoing emails to get a neat and professional look. It's easy to use. Anything more than just a few words, I compose my emails in my text editor and paste them over to Thunderbird, then hit the conversion button, and if I'm happy with the look, I send. This workflow of mine avoids any glitches between Thunderbird's somewhat mysterious WYSIWYG-ish text formatting for outgoing stuff and Markdown Here's two different states (applied, and not-applied).
  • I always miss you just after sending email written with syntax.

    Even if so, pretty syntax!
  • writing email in html - what a doodle - with this - man its just as it should be!

    Thanks for developing such a wrap up ! this is really one of top here..

    - using debian 8 and 9, 64bit - thunderbird latest
  • I discovered this two days ago and have been installing it everywhere I can. It works exactly as advertised.
  • #### Markdown Here 2.13.2
    The freeze has been fixed,
    but this version hits the XML parse error below, on clicking [Setting] button...

    ```
    XML パースエラー: 定義されていない実体が使用されています。
    URL: chrome://markdown_here/content/options.xul
    行番号: 6, 列番号: 1:^
    ```

    #### Markdown Here 2.12.0
    Thunderbird freezes on clicking [Setting] button of Markdown Here in Addon Manager.

    Although, Markdown Here itself does work in mail creation screen.
  • Works well with OWA (Web Outlook client of Exchange server). Great idea to parse Markdown on the client side and make it universally available at the hand. Thanks dev! Good luck with the awesome addon!
  • Thank you SO MUCH Adam. This is one of my favourite add-ons and has helped me a lot. IMHO its a "must have" Add-on.

    I hope to use it after FF 57. Any plans to port it to webextensions?

    A new WebExtensions version has been submitted to Mozilla for review. After it gets approved there'll be an updated to the XUL version (the one you have) telling you how to switch.
  • I was looking for a markdown addon for Thunderbird and this one is the best I found. It works fine and it has a nice settings menu where you can change even the appearance!
  • Very useful addon. When I use Zotero, the note editor is not so convenient. After I installed the Markdown Here, I type some note in markdown syntax and press the button. Something magic happened, the note seamlessly converted to formated text. Wonderful experience!
  • I use FastMail and this add-on works great for composing in a MarkDown editor (WriteMonkey, MarkdownPad2, etc.) and then pasting in FM's compose window and toggling the Markdown into formatted text.

    But there is a problem I see when I use numbered or bulleted lists. Markdown Here will properly indent the list. However, when I'm done with the list and wish to resume regular text UNindented, Markdown Here will not unindent the text and move it back out to the original margin, even though previews of the text in WriteMonkey and MarkdownPad2 will show the text following the lists as unindented.

    Apart from this issue, Markdown Here has been working great for me.

    EDIT: D'oh! Now I can't reproduce the formatting glitch I mentioned above. Markdown Here is working perfectly. Oh, well. I guess I'll have to live with it. ;-)
  • Great!
  • It may have its flaws, but its virtues totally compensate those.
  • Very useful addon, thank you!
    I write emails faster and easier, and their appears more beautiful. :-)
    Features I like:
    - very nice rendering;
    - support Github Markdown with syntax highlight in code blocks;
    - dot not destroy your signature nor e-mails below your text;
    - very easy way to switch between text and rendering.

    Works on Thunderbird 45.2.0
  • Great! Simple, effective and beautiful. Love it!
  • Sadly, in many cases, it screws up the formatting completely even for content that is otherwise perfectly formatted on the demo page. Again and again, I write up loooong messages with lots of code and structural elements, only to watch it go to heck after I press the button.

    Let's figure this out...
    - Which client are you using (Firefox or Thunderbird)?

    - What version of the client are you using?

    - Have you restarted your client since installing?

    - Does the Markdown Here options page work for you?
  • The plugin worked fine with gmail
    but with inbox if i use
    ```
    ```
    The email is not sent.
    as soon as i remove this section its works and email is sent.

    Developer response

    I can't reproduce this.

    - Which client are you using (Firefox or Thunderbird)?

    - What version of the client are you using?

    - Do you mean that you render the code with MDH and then send, or you're sending raw Markdown?

    - In the MDH options, do you have "forgot-to-render" enabled?
  • LOVE.
  • Markdown Here gi'r dig fuld kontrol over formatering i dine emails (Gmail, Thunderbird), m.m., inklusiv kode med syntaksfremhævning, tabeller, diff, osv.
    Desuden er Markdown nem og kan læres på minuter.
  • This is one of my must have extensions. I use it on all my browsers and Thunderbird.
  • I really like this addon .. thanks ... it is pretty intuitive to use and the results look great. I am using it in Postbox and it works flawlessly.

    I wonder if there is a way to toggle markdown mode with hot keys instead of switching to the mouse and clicking. For me that would be amazing.

    OK ... just figured out the Ctl + Alt + M ... it is amazing ... thanks again!
  • This addon is great! I have it in Chrome and use it all the time writing emails. My only complaint is that it does not seem to work in Gmail. All it does is hightlight the text. I'm sure it's just a bug.

    Do you still have this behaviour? A problem similar to what you describe (https://github.com/adam-p/markdown-here/issues/141) was fixed in the most recent release -- 2.11.2.
  • Excellent! Produces lovely HTML and is very clear on privacy issues which is a plus.
  • I like the idea and the extension's features. :D This does not only allow you to use Markdown but, as a consequence, also free-form HTML code which you can quickly turn into the "real thing" even in Gmail (which by default does NOT allow HTML). It also has the feature of customizing the CSS of the rendered markup, which is awesome if you want to give it a unique look.
  • If you modify the text when you're in the converted state, and click MarkdownHere button to convert back to original text again, you will risk losing some or even all of your text!

    If you enabled HTML source editor mode and click MarkdownHere button in HTML source editor window, you will risk losing all your input text.

    If you save the draft message and open it again for further editing, MarkdownHere may convert the text into wrong format of quoted block, because Thunderbird will beautify the HTML code with indention and MarkdownHere can't handle it correctly.

    Solution: The HTML text should be converted back to plain text, before formatting them with Markdown. You can do it manually by copying the text, then Ctrl+Shift+V to paste plain text, then click MarkdownHere button to format them.

    There should be a transform status feedback, when switching on and off of Markdown conversion. eg, MarkdownHere button pressed down or released up.

    Conversion done by MarkdownHere is NOT recorded in Thunderbird undo history, so you can NOT revert it by pressing Ctrl+Z to undo the edit! This will cause data loss if you're not cautious when using MarkdownHere.
