No longer using this. Switched to better suiting alternative. Rated 2 out of 5 stars
I have switched to GMail Checker (currently 2.6.1 by Trinh Nguyen).
These are the differences that made me switch:
- The GMail Manager does not offer a single icon (with total new-mail-count for all accounts),
- GMail Manager is more work to set up (it has many options per account),
- GMail Manager does not work immediately in FF9.x,
- GMail Manager does not offer a single left-click access to the menu with all accounts,
- GMail Manager does not offer snippets for all accounts in the menu with all accounts.
GMail Checker on the other hand, does offer all this, and I thought perhaps other might mind the comparison useful.
Best of the multiple gmail account checkers. Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Just got a new laptop and tried again all multiple-Gmail-account checkers, because I did not remember which one I had before. It was this one and that was easy to figure out, I had problems with the other ones (e.g. gmail manager) immediately. This is still by far the best one.
- Simple and fast to set up
- Works immediately in FF9.x
- Intuitive to use
- Single icon for all acounts which I LOVE
- Direct left-click access to an overview of all my accounts (right-click is a hassle on the touchpad)
Not one of the competitors offers this.
Thank you so much!
Focus on addres-bar made me switch to My Homepage add-on. Rated 2 out of 5 stars
Alas. I have used this extension for as long as it has been around, but the fact that it leaves focus on the address-bar rather than moving focus to the search-bar of my homepage, has finally made me abandon it.
I am now using My Homepage, which works admirably, also on FF 7.
Preferable to New Tab Homepage. Rated 5 out of 5 stars
In one word: perfect.
- Preferable to New Tab Homepage because My Homepage sets focus to the search-bar if Google is your homepage, in stead of leaving focus on the address-bar.
- Works on Firefox 7.
I have used New Tab Homepage for as long as it has existed, but have now switched to My Homepage and am happy about it.
Best of all alternatives! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Perfect! Intuitive, does not try to do too much, always works, shows snippets... need I go on? I was using the gmail manager addon for a long time, and I have also tried the gmail notifier recently, but this addon is simply the best one in the category! I hope more people discover it and appreciate it. I also hope it will keep its simplicity :-)
Thank you very much for creating this, you have made my firefox/mail-life pleasant again!

Still: broken in win7?
I tried the new 1.5.5. version. Formerly I reported that I was unable to save any preferences under win7 / firefox 3.5.4 / notifier 1.5.4 (after adding a mailaccount the preferences window cannot be closed: nothing happens on "ok"). With notifier version 1.5.5 this problem remains. I have win7 in 64bit. Might that be the problem? And a BIG thank you to the developer for the effort and the replies!
works now in win7 for me Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Formerly I posted I could not save the preferences. This was using win7 64bit, firefox 3.5.4. and notifier 1.5.4. I now have the notifier 2.0.1 version and it works! Thank you!!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.1).
