Worked once then, after restart, nothing Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Would have been nice if it worked (although TBird should mark any eMail you reply to as "read" automatically - so this extension is really an attempt at a bug-fix). Uninstalled.

Not work :( Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I need this extension... But it not work in 38.6.0

have the corrections suggested on January 20, 2014 been applied? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I notice the current version is dated November 15, 2013 and there is a comment by Lobito dated January 20, 2014 that reports some typos in the add-on that prevent it working properly.

Before I try the add-on I want to know, have the corrections suggested on January 20, 2014 been applied?

Applying the updates will probably cause the use of this add-on to take of and increase greatly because an add-on like this is really needed (assuming nobody fixes the underlying bug in Thunderbird).

Some minor issues Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great extension, with a few minor issues.

1) The one reported by user "infinity" is caused by a simple typo:

<menuitem id="mailContext-Forward"

in your XUL should read

<menuitem id="mailContext-forward" ( F != f !)

2) Some buttons in the header of the "Message Pane" (message preview window) either have sub-buttons which are not overlayed, or Buttons (like "Reply List") which are not always displayed and thus easily overlooked.
The following are the further candidates for an overlay including your function call (NOTE that I did not include the calls to your function, because I'm not sure if all of those are really necessary, and not sure if I myself have missed soemthing!)


<menuitem id="hdrReplySubButton" oncommand="MsgReplySender(event); event.stopPropagation(); RestoreFocusAfterHdrButton();"/>


<toolbarbutton id="hdrReplyListButton" oncommand="MsgReplyToListMessage(event);RestoreFocusAfterHdrButton();"/>

<menuitem id="hdrReplyList_ReplySubButton" oncommand="MsgReplySender(event); event.stopPropagation(); RestoreFocusAfterHdrButton();"/>


<toolbarbutton id="hdrFollowupButton" oncommand="MsgReplyGroup(event);RestoreFocusAfterHdrButton();"/>

<menuitem id="hdrFollowup_ReplySubButton" oncommand="MsgReplySender(event); event.stopPropagation(); RestoreFocusAfterHdrButton();"/>


Perhaps those can alternatively be amended by overlaying the relevant commands (I'm quite new to extensions myself...), because I was surprised to see these two:

<toolbarbutton id="hdrReplyAllButton" oncommand="markReadOnReply();MsgReplyToAllMessage(event)" ...
<menuitem id="hdrReplyAll_ReplyAllSubButton" oncommand="markReadOnReply();MsgReplyToAllMessage(event)" ...

to be amended with your function call, although the GUI-elements themselves are NOT overlayed in your XUL, and I'm not sure why (the "observes"-attribute perhaps?)
BTW, these two belong together with the first candidate above (with id="hdrReplySubButton").

PS: Sorry to post this here, but the paragraph above the review form:
"Please do not post bug reports in reviews. (...) See the support section to find out where to get assistance for this add-on." would indeed make sense, if there WAS anything like a "support section" - the link only leads back to the extension's home with an page anchor named "support" that does not exist inside the HTML.

PPS: BTW, as I'm quite new to extensions myself: where did you put the long description that is showing on the website and in the extension manager? I did not find it anywhere inside your extension and also I did not find any good info about this, apart from the statement, that the "description"-element in install.rdf should not exceed one line of text...


Thanks for this detailed report--I will certainly look into the items you address when I have an opportunity.

Very Nice Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very nice, but it's still not working with 'Forward' (in Thunderbird 24.2).

I'm using v2.1 of the add-on, and the 'Forward' feature was apparently added in v2, so I'm not sure why It's not working.

For me it only marks 'as read' when using Reply or Reply All.

** Update: Reply to Developer 2014-01-11**

I checked this again. It doesn't work when right-clicking on a mail message (in the Inbox for example) and then selectiung the 'Forward' menu that is below 'Reply To All'. The email remains marked as unread even after it's opened in a new window for forwarding.

However, if I use the sub-menus of next menu item down (i.e. the "Forward As" menu) then it works fine (for both 'inline' and 'attachment' options).


Which 'forward' button or menu item are you using? There are multiple ways to forward.

I cannot reproduce your problems with the same version numbers. Please try and temporarily disable all other plugins and see if you have the same results.

The only other thing I can think of would be if you actually have an older version of the extension installed without realizing it... I'm not sure how that would be possible though if you installed the latest.

Something else you may be able to try would be to uninstall, restart, then reinstall.

Thank you for rating even though it's not working right yet.

Found a work around to the Reply not working.
Customize the top menu bar by adding the reply button there. It then works.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0). 

v2.1 has corrected this issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add on worked perfectly. Easy to use as fully integrates into the program. It would be great if it would also mark as read if an email is forwarded!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0). 

Suggestion Implemented

Andrew, thank you for your suggestion... it was simple enough for me to make the changes necessary to mark as read when a message is forwarded, so that feature has been added to version 2.0

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

works, but it will be good to mark as read only after mail was sent (or as option), I know that this overcomplicate this addon, but this is what make me disable this addon in Thunderbird

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0).
