Extra Folder Columns

Not needed since Thunderbird 38, but otherwise great Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Has served me well up to Thunderbird 38, where the functionality is built in:

• Expanded Folder Pane columns in New in Thunderbird 38.0 support article:
• “Show expanded columns in folder pane” in release notes:
• Bug 464973 in Bugzilla:

Just check View → Layout → Folder Pane Columns.

Add-ons Manager Context Menu

Missing “display changelog” option, otherwise great Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Small, but nice addon for power users. Does what is says. Personally, I am missing quick access to addons’ changelogs.

Tab History Menu

Saves UI space, hides history Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Associating history with tab this way seems like a brilliant idea to me. But after giving this addon a try I must say I cannot use it.

The menu is quite irritating when it pops up when I try to move the tab (disappears during drag) or just activate it and view the page.

Lack of visual indication that the tab has history and whether I can go back or forward is a problem too. Sure I can leave history arrows on a toolbar, but then no space is saved and I tend to use their drop-down menu instead of the tab's one. I have no clear idea how to solve this.

Maybe what I want from history is to start a clear one when I enter a URL manually or choose one from my bookmarks. Then I browse and add history items. When a link is opened to a new tab or window, newly opened tab should inherit the whole history of the current tab.

Then I would know that history is there if I want it and no visual indication would be necessary. At the moment I have to go through several tabs and find the one with active back button. But this solution is a big change in how history works and I think this addon is not supposed to do it. (Maybe optionally?)

Thanks for this interesting addon anyway!
