  • AWESOME, override google's stupidity to block my plugin it's all text! Now I use vim and GPG inside vim and gmail.
  • Superb! Google take note, your new design isn't practical!

    If you write emails using gmail's web interface then this is an absolute must, no more scrolling up or attempting to remember what you were replying to!

    FANTASTIC addon! thank you!
  • You're my hero. THANK YOU!
  • Unless I am mistaken, it appears the plugin just changes the user-agent header in order to trick GMail to provide the older composition interface. If this is the case, then this plugin, as of this writing, will only function as long as Google keeps the old composition interface available.

    I give it five stars for now, but I would not be surprised if Google pulls the rug out.
  • Absolutely wonderful! This is one of my favorite extensions. Google keeps changing (and screwing up) things that aren't broken. Thankfully there are add ons like Old Compose that can give the users back what they WANT. Thanks to the developer!
  • I have been using/sending fewer and fewer email
    because I soooooo hate the "new and improved"
    gmail ...

    I tried to send a message to a bunch of people and
    would normally NEVER send without using BCC...

    the "new" gmail did not give me that option... no
    matter what I did...

    thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you!!!!!
  • They should call the the "gmail resuscitator" since it bought gmail back to life. I could not stand the hideous mini compose window the google idiots decide to throw in our faces! TY X1,000,000's of gmail users. Works flawlessly! Great coding!
  • Unbelievable! I really, really tried to get on board with the new compose look but let's call a spade a spade: it was a downgrade, not just for the many points mentioned by others but also for the way selecting part of your text (in replies) worked. Thanks ever so much for this amazing add-on. It's the best I've ever seen anybody create outside Facebook Purity. Love it!
  • Thanks, man! My It's All text is here again!
  • Many of us were aghast when we first encountered the new compose experience, especially knowing that Google would eventually make it mandatory as they did the new themes. While Google did listen to complaints and implement a full-screen mode for the new compose so we weren't forced to focus on the lower-right of the screen while typing emails, many of us still feel that the old compose was more intuitive and attractive. This extension gives us just what we've been longing for!Unfortunately, it's still early. Using it for less than a day I noticed that it makes the Gmail logo in the upper-left hand corner of the screen disappear. I expect that will be fixed in the next release. That's the only reason I didn't give this five stars. Well done and keep up the good work!

    Update: That issue has been fixed. It's perfect. I bumped the score accordingly to 5. Here's hoping that Google doesn't break this anytime soon by dropping support for the old version of IE this extension is telling Gmail is being used!
  • Excellent ! Now if only you could do us all a favor and create an OLD GMAIL style -- you know, like the interface used to look ca. 2006. :-) :-) (The ones they have a userstyles.org don't quite measure up.)
  • Wow, this is amazing. I am so happy to have my old Gmail compose back. I hate the new compose; everything about it is just wrong. I don't know how you did it, but this extension brings back the old compose exactly how it used to be. I hope that this extension will continue to work in future versions of Firefox and when Gmail makes changes to their site. 5+ stars.
  • Fantastic. Now my emacs keybindings work.
  • OMG! Exactly what I was hoping to find! What a HUGE relief! I hated the new Gmail compose. Thank you so much!!! :)
  • Oh, THANK YOU!

    It's such a relief to have the old Compose window back!
  • Awesome! This works. Finally, I can use the good, old, easy and simple compose and reply. I can't understand why Google messed this up - and I hope they revert these ridiculous changes. In the meantime, this works a treat! :) Thanks.
