This add on fixed my problem! I kept receiving emails displaying Wingding emoticons as J. As soon as I installed this add on, the Js are now displaying as emoticons. Thank you.
Great addon, thank you!
This is wonderfull. I have been so annoyed by this problem for ages -- Thank you.
The reason that i only give 4 stars is that is does not work with Thunderbird Conversations.
Wow. I never would have thought someone will bother to write an extension and you did! Just as for others, it was small thing that was driving me crazy after hundreds of e-mails with "J's" everywhere. Thank you!!
The idea is pretty good and it seems to be working for others (so 3 stars for that), but it's just not working on my system (MacOS Mavericks), I'm still seeing the J instead of a smilie.
UPDATE: Thanks for the answer (sorry for taking so late to answer on my side). Gonna rate up to 4 just for that :). I made a comment on github, as suggested, 'simple html' doesn't seem to be the problem.
Could it be the same problem as here https://github.com/richq/smileyfixer/issues/2#issuecomment-24397676 - basically if you view the mails as "Simplified HTML" then the original markup is not visible to the plugin so it really only sees a J and doesn't know if it should be changed. You have to use "Original HTML" in the View - Message Content setting.
I think I might be able to add a workaround for this - like just change single J to :-) if it is in simplified html mode, but that might mess up some genuine emails (like if you have a pal called Jason who signs his messages "regards, J." it'd say "regards, :-)."). It'd require a better way of figuring out if it is an outlook email, or maybe even try to get access to the original HTML when in simplified mode (dunno if the TB widget I'm hooking into has that, etc..)
So, er, yeah. Add a comment to that github issue if you like.
Worked perfectly for me. It seems like a small thing, but all those "j"'s were starting to bug the heck out of me. Thanks!
Works well under SeaMonkey, too, with a tweak to the install.rdf (diff posted as issue 2 on github).
Thanks for this, Richard. Nice work!
You said you like suggestion. Well, here's one: would it be possible for this add-on to turn UTF8-smilies into normal ASCII-smilies?
Like: turning ☺ into :-)
That way Thunderbird could display those UTF8-smilies as eye-friendly graphical yellow smilies.
You can change what each smiley should be in preferences. Sadly it doesn't show up as a yellow TB smiley if it is an HTML email (which is what outlook sends).
Does what it says it does. J
I also up-voted you on superuser.com. Thanks a lot!
Works prefectly but the smileys are still inverted in the version 1.3 I get. Is there a way to get this fixed 1.3.1 version somewhere ?
Edit Reply : Wow fast reply ! It is the same problem Chris mentioned the 2013-04-02, I have to put the Smyley in Frowny and vice versa : http://gyazo.com/b77b6689cb96930c1c66eae21105f88b
Not sure what you mean by inverted - any chance you could send me a screenshot?
Sorry, couldnt find a place to report the bug, so writing it here. This addon does not seem to work when emails are sent from Outlook 2010. I still see a J. I am using v1.3.1 on TB17 on Ubuntu 13.04 x64...UPDATE: I am putting 5 stars for your prompt reply and also for the fact that this addon actually works! However, it breaks when used in conjuction with thunderbird conversations.
Must be something specific, as my colleagues at work use 2010 and I haven't seen a J for ages. I guess they don't smile much. I've enabled issues on github now, better to talk about problems there I think, or if you could drop me an email with an example failure I could take a look.
I find this addon very useful, thank you!Unfortunately, I am getting frowny where I should be getting smiley. I had to invert the two in the configuration dialog. It would be 5 stars otherwise.
(P.S. Hey! I just noticed that even your screenshots show the inverted smileys in the configuration dialog!!)
Ha! Well spotted. You know, I fixed this in the source code back in February but never released that version. Pending review by the moderators, version 1.3.1 sorts out this bug. A new teaser screenshot shows the fix :-)
Wow, great addon, thank you very much!
It works! The only issue is the double smiles that still appear as "JJ".
Works as advised, thx.
Although it will be nice to be able to use standard TB smileys. It is simple span with text and custom class anyway.
Thanks for making this. I would get emails with "J" at the end of sentences all the time.
Das ist gut!!! :)
I frequently receive emails from people who use smileys within their Outlook-based communication. I was relieved to discover that this nifty little plugin enables me to get the whole message. Thank you very much, please continue to keep this plugin up-to-date!
I use it every day at work, so I'll keep up to date with new versions of TB. I have no ideas for new features though, it does everything I need it to right now. Ideas welcome though!
