Better than other add-ons Rated 4 out of 5 stars

One of the good add-on from both a user and software developer perspective.

Would like the ability to source by newest in thread Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Conversations are handy; but, new responses can get buried.
If there were an option to toggle conversations to show up based on newest thread entry date instead of first, that would make it much easier to spot newly updated conversations.

Works as Promised Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I like the addon it does what it's supposed to but besides the big visual improvement, I don't really see the big advantage in comparison to the default Thunderbird view.
I'd like to have a FULL conversation view where I can use a Contacts window instead of the inbox window and see all the emails I got or exchanged with this specific email address when i click a contact.
Anyway work's as good as gmail and that is what it's supposed to do. Keep it up!


Sehr zufrieden - Really good! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you for this Add-on!

Can I specify a display format of a name? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I am Japanese, and a name of address-book (in the thread panes) is usually displayed in order of last-name and first-name (e.g. Watanabe Ken).
However, in current version, the order looks like fixed as first-name and last-name (Ken Watanabe).

TBGallery not work TB 45.1.0 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Nie działa TBgallery od wersji 45. Jak to naprawić?

Cannot get rid of it. Stuck with threads even when turned off and removed Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I tried conversations, did not like them, and now I cannot seem to get rid of them. Mails come in and are sorted according to who sent them and it is a royal pain in the-you-know-what, because Thunderbird always collapses the threads and it messes up the chronological view. I removed Conversations but the collapsed threads remain. How did that happen? For this huge bug, the add-on gets one star.

TB version 45.1.0 Stuck on loading pdf Rated 4 out of 5 stars

In addition to remote images bug as reported by Jorg K....
Enabled Converstions.
Select email with pdf attachment so it is viewed in Message Pane.
click on 'preview'
a new tab opens and you see 'Loading' with a spinning wheel icon.
This does not ever actually load. It is stuck on 'Loading'.
Another person on support forum had this issue, so I tested it and got the same result.
I'm using the correct version of Conversations 2.11.3

Missing translation Rated 4 out of 5 stars

As mentioned below, you need to update the extension if you upgrade Thunderbird to version 45.

The new version seems not to have been translated (at least in Italian)... is it possible to restore the old translation file?

Seit TB 45 Probleme Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Habe das add-on nach längerer Pause seit ein paar Wochen wieder im Einsatz (Test) und es lief bis zur Aktualisierung auf TB 45 eigentlich sehr gut.
Nun mit TB 45 funktioniert Gallery View nicht mehr und das add-on ist nur noch in englisch ohne die Möglichkeit die Sprache zu wechseln.

Broken with Thunderbird 45.0 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I really liked this add-on a lot, but since updating Thunderbird to 45.0, emails will not load in the preview pane unless I disable it.

You need to make sure the addon is up-to-date, then restart Thunderbird

Excelente e muuuuuuuuuuuuito útil! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Esta extensão é muito, muito útil e prática, deveria ser integrada ao Thunderbird por padrão, assim como o Lighting..

Só poderiam remover o "padding" na exibição do e-mail, que está desperdiçando espaço na tela e ficando meio.. feio :v

Awesome plugin with many bugs Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The idea is very good, this can be very useful.
So far I've seen 4 issues:

1. It combines many different threads (same people but different subject/in-reply-to/references) into one single conversation. This happened after I moved some of this conversation to a sub-folder, and realised that this plugin does not work in sub-folders. So I moved them back to Inbox, then bang all those different threads are combined together into a single one. What a disaster. How can I restore this?

2. As mentioned above, it does not work in sub-folders.

3. "Fit images" add-on doesn't work anymore (of course, because it is a different message reader). If this resizes large images to fit the screen it'll be perfect.

4. When the tree is collapsed, it is NOT showing the date and sender of the latest message, confusing (known issue)

I have two issue! ➡ Issue has been resolved ! (Dec 15) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I am using the "Thunderbird 38.4.0".
I am one's favorite this add-on from one year ago.
However, why is the update of the "Thunderbird Conversations 2.10.1-let-fixed" is impossible.

Moreover, recently, to be in trouble, "thread view" is, to combine the other different Message.
This symptom occurs at Reply to the Message.
Minute that arrived immediately after the Message is, It binds to reply, it can not be separated.
If not the Reply is it looks fine.

In order to not be normal Reply, we disable this addon.
After disable, it is normal.

Please give me your support.

Excellent but... Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Excellent but for two things I find really, REALLY annoying.
In the Inbox, when messages are ordered by dates, the conversations appear ‘misplaced’.
For example, I have a conversation running for a month now. I received the initial email on October 26 but, I my inbox, although the most recent email was on November 26, it is still being shown as October 26 but as if that was not confusing enough, appears between November 6 and 10. How messy can it get? Try finding something... When I think about that conversation, it’s the most recent email that’s in my mind. Therefore, I feel it should be ordered according to that date. Also, in the conversations themselves, I would appreciate it if there was the option to change the order. In my inbox, I have my messages ordered with the most recent ones at the top. I’d like the option to do the same within conversations.
WARNING!: If you deactivate the module, your Inbox will not revert to its former state.
The changes made seem to be irreversible!
After disabling Conversations, the emails are still grouped per conversations but now I can only see the first two lines of each email in the preview pain. The only way to expand them is to double click on the thread in the Inbox and then Thunderbirds will automatically open every email in the thread in its own tab. What a mess with long conversations!
The only way I was able to get back to a proper Inbox was to shut down Thunderbird, find the email folder on my computer and delete it. Then restart Thunderbird and have it download the emails again. Lucky I am using IMAP.
WARNING! WARNING!: If you are using POP3 and do not keep copies on the server, I do not recommend installing that module because you’ll have no way of going back should you want to.
It has the potential to be excellent but it's not there yet. It needs to be FULLY reversible and get the dates right.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.10.1-let-fixed). 

I think you just missed the threading feature of the thread pane. There's a small twister (triangle) next to a collapsed thread that allows you to expand it and see the individual message. You can control this setting with View > Threads > Threaded / Unthreaded (in the menus).

All of your comments would probably be addressed by playing with it.

Concerning your specific complaint about the "wrong" date being shown, that's a long-standing bug in Thunderbird over which I have no control.


Very good, but one problem Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I've found it quite useful, once I got used to it. However, I've noticed a problem that's gotten in my way a few times: when I try to forward an individual message, it sometimes fails to include the message text -- all I get is the message header. This seems only to happen with messages that are after the first message in a conversation. (I work around it by hitting "Reply to all", then fixing the subject and headers.)

The "forward this conversation" item at the bottom of each conversation does work; I still want the ability to forward individual messages, however. (Request: this item inserts the text "Here's a conversation I thought you might find interesting!" -- I'll always replace that. It'd be nice, in a future release, to make that text configurable.)
