It's great but it's lacking headers. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I like this extension but it will hide headers and there is no way to enable / view them afaik with the exception of the "View using classic reader" option. One example is the user agent header. I am not referring to the add-on/extension but every Thunderbird, at least from version 5, has the option to display the user-agent header with the rest of the headers if you open about:config and set mailnews.headers.showUserAgent to true. Once I installed Thunderbird Conversations, this header is gone and I found the only way I can view it is if I click on "View using classic reader". That's my only gripe since, otherwise, this extension is great. I mean the cosmetics of it are nice to look at but even more importantly, it makes reading a thread a breeze. If it were not for the lack of headers and no way to configure which ones are shown (again, afaik) then I would rank this 5 stars.

fantastic but attachment pane sometimes is hidded Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I addicted to the mac like look and feel, so I tried some of the few that have already been updated. I recognized that the attachment display only works if you first view an e-mail in the default theme of tb using conversation. The next time it seems to work as well in the other themes...

Integration in KDE? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great Job, However not really usable in KDE yet: Mishaped button, too small font, does not take the theme color

Great, but... no right-to-left support Rated 4 out of 5 stars

In "regular" Thunderbird mode the Add-On BiDi mail enables RTL languages such as Hebrew,
but Conversations doesn't work like this, which makes it practically unusable for the time being.

I used to have support for bidiui, is it broken? Frankly if no one tells me, I can't figure out the support is broken. The bidi developers don't seem to care about conversations...

Fantastic - needs some work Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Conversation view is fantastic - now that I've grown accustomed to it, any other view seems deficient. The only problem is that many of the emails I send get attached to the wrong conversations. Will be 5 stars when fixed.

This is very useful add on, but it has a problem that 'between' column in thread pane does not show the display name in address book even if i checked 'Show only display name for people in my address book' in thunderbird option.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I just received a message to update to Thunderbird 5 in my MacBook, I was looking forward to this update to be able to enjoy the full experience of Thunderbird Conversations 2.0.3 (I've been using previous versions which were good, but this one had much better look).

Now, even I love this extension, it just seems to be having a problem in showin Attachments (perhaps this is happening only in the Mac version?)

For instance, what it is shown in the first screenshot of this add-on, it is not shown to me: https://static-cdn.addons.mozilla.net/img/uploads/previews/full/51/51374.png?modified=1291109007

There just doesn't show anything even I'm sure I have an attachment (and they even list in the menu: File -> Attachments ->


Besides that, this is an amazing extension and I'm glad to see its development moving forward :-)

Nice but with some quirks Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very functional addon but my only gripe about this is mails with fixed-width fonts are displayed with Arial font which screws up the formatting on some text-only reports.

Kindly provide this option for future releases..

get rid of monster avatars? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

hi, this is a very nice addon, transforming thunderbird into a program that is actually fun to use. but there should be a way to get rid of the monster avatar display. i'm trying to establish this in a company settings, and people will be put off by this.

2.0.3 disables this, you should be updated soon

היה יכול להיות התוסף החשוב ביותר לת'אנדרבירד לולא מספר חסרונות מהותיים:
1. איחוד כפתור "השב" (Replay) ו"השב לכולם" (Replay All). יוצר עיכוב כאשר צריך לשנות את ברירת המחדל השב לכולם להשב.
2. המיקום של הכפתור "השב" ממוקם בסוף ההודעה במקום המיקום המסורתי בראש ההודעה. ממש מעצבן.
3. בנוסף לכל אלה ה"גיור" של ההרחבה מאוד ראשוני ונדרש מתנדב בעל זמן לטפל בזה...
לסיכום התוסף הזה חשוב אך הביצוע לוקה בחסר.

Get rid of the in-line spell checker Rated 3 out of 5 stars

There should be an option to do that...
Differently, in the quick reply box, I should right-click on text-area and uncheck the related menu item EACH time, for EACH message...
Annoying!

Mind the "Reply All" button Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Provides a great conversation view, just like GMail.

But it has one Fatal Flaw: that default button says "reply all", and you have to click on the down arrow to get "reply". This is terrible, I just replied-all to 200 people on a company mailing list. Mistakes happen, and I will have to uninstall the addon if it doesn't help me prevent them.

Please go back to separate "Reply" and "Reply All" buttons.

This is like a whole new Thunderbird. It would be nice if the toolbar it uses were more native looking, and it feels a little slow, but for the most part I really like it.

Revolutionizes Thunderbird Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Simply put, this extension his makes Thunderbird a pleasure instead of a pain for me. I vaguely remember being skeptical about the utility of a conversation view, six years ago when I got a gmail account; now, I can barely use email without one, and I've hated it for years when something forced me to use anything other than GOOG's (very proprietary!) service. Now, with tbird and this addon, I can finally use whatever service I want with a libre+gratis client and still have a 21st century interface!

Great addon, started using it just as TB5.0 came out. However, the suggested TB Contacts addon doesn't support the new release yet. What about taking contact photos from the ordinary Address Book, as a fallback?

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I'm enjoying the Thunderbird Conversations extension so far, but I have a request:

Can you please provide more grouping options for matching conversation threads?

For instance, I would like to group all messages from certain email addresses into a single conversation thread.

It would also be sweet if the matching algorithm could match "similar" subjects, not just identical ones -- for instance, I get a daily update from my Project Management system where the only thing that changes in the subject line is the date. I would like to group all these as a single thread.

Thanks!
