Simply Awesome Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Just started using it and it makes Thunderbird SO MUCH more productive! Great job developers!

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great functionality, great enhancement. The default design, however, does not integrate very nicely into the default Thunderbird UI. But thanks to the extensive options, I was able to tweak its visual appearance to have a perfect fit:

Thank you for maintaining this extension!

nice one!

and well done on finding a visual style you find pleasing von your particular operating system / mail application :-) feel free to suggest another theme but bear in mind that the look of the host program (I support three, Thunderbird , SeaMonkey and Postbox) is very largely dependant on the skin your current operating system uses [so you already have 9 different looks by just using one version of each OS with default style. On Windows alone you can have a multitude of looks dependant on the skin you use - I personally use Windowblinds to further vary the look adn full themes on Thunderbird to modify the look even more - I highly recommend Nautipolis] so it is practically impossible to support all different looks without making this a full time job. Also I do not currently own a Macintosh so I can't even guess how my tabs are going to look on there.

My advice for a most native look would be to use the theme "native tabs" (I designed the QuickFolders with tabs in mind, even before Thunderbird supported tabs) or toolbarbuttons. I personally prefer something more colorful, hence "Flat Tabs" is the default.

I hope you will find Quickfolders a useful tool in the future,and let me remark that although the user interface is a big part of it, the main focus of this extension is actually about productivity. I am still learning myself what can be done with it, and I am working on the development for 5 years now. Make sure to reach out to me for the latest prereleases and to test drive the newest features I have come up with.

I LOVE this Add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I absolutely love this add-on. I get about 100 emails a day and use this add-on as well as the QuickFilters and it sorts and files my emails into convenient folders so I can read the most important ones first and save the others for when I have time.

This add-on save me so much time and I have not found an thing wrong with it. Great Work Dev.

Mon extension préférée pour Thunderbird Rated 5 out of 5 stars

J'apprécie vraiment ce module qui me permet de m'affranchir du volet "dossiers" de thunderbird pour conserver tout l'espace pour l'affichage des mails. Couplé à des filtres ad hoc, je peux classer mes mails instantanément et naviguer dans mes dossiers facilement grâce aux onglets identifiés par couleur. Je peux ainsi conserver un dossier "courrier entrant" propre où ne transitent que les mails à "courte durée de vie". De nombreuses options permettent de personnaliser l'utilisation du module. À adopter d'urgence !

great add-on and support Rated 5 out of 5 stars

in conjunction with virtual folders this is an invaluable add-on. What I have really been impressed by is the speed of bug-fixing especially when "bugs" are introduced as a result of TB daily updates - essentially some changes in TB making the add-on no longer compatible. This has happened recently several updates in a row and the author has quickly turned around with pre-release versions to deal with the new TB code

Great Product - Great Support Rated 5 out of 5 stars

My gateway supports automatic forwarding to IMAP folders based on header information. Trying to keep the five folders I continually need to access in the same place on the screen in Thunderbird - is impossible without QuickFolders. With QuickFolders its simple and elegant.

And when I found and reported a small (but annoying to me) bug - I had fix a day later. That's hard to beat. I strongly recommend this product for email pros.

Great and Usefull Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Ok, I use this sind 1 or 2 years and today I just write, that this piece of Software is a very useful addon!

You can reach all the folders you need very quick and you can even move messages to the shown folders.

A Must-Have Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I run a couple of business, which means that I have to read and keep track of a lot of emails. After finally giving up on the hope of Eudora OSE upgrades, I found myself *far* from in love with T-Bird 17. OSE itself was a departure from Qualcomm's great product that I used for years (until Win7), earlier TB's were a little more, and v17 moved even farther away from what I need, with its folder behavior. That is, until I came across QuickFolders. Now, I can keep the 10 or so folders that I use every day at the top, and run the program like I used to use Eudora 5. It's actually better than Eudora OSE -- assuming it was suddenly bug-free -- because it doesn't create multiple tabs when accessing folders that were already open. It makes Thunderbird useful again.

Great addon. I disabled the toolbar, but I find it terrible to still see the toolbar for 1 or 2 seconds when I start-up Thunderbird. How can I resolve this?

you could try post a bug report on support, I cannot promise that it is easy to fix or fixable at all.

Productivity Booster Rated 5 out of 5 stars

If you have a ton of folders in your email like I do (and after nearly 20 years of emails in my business, there are a lot of folders), QuickFolders is a godsend. It saves a lot of time to just click on a tab for a folder to go there instantly. Thank you for creating such an incredibly useful add-on.

Can't Do Without This Add-on! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

QuickFolders keeps getting better and better. QuikFolders provides an invaluable alternative view into your mail folder structure. People who use mail seriously invariably end up with myriad storage folders in a complex tree hierarchy; and that hierarchy and the Tree view are indispensable. But navigating a complex tree structure over and over, to the same deeply located folders, can be tiring. It's repetitive, and can be laborious. QuickFolders provides the missing UI element, a system of visible graphical shortcuts to the folders you choose, using the ubiquitous and widely understood tab metaphor. And, QuickFolders helps rationalize your folder organization tree and its major branches, by providing a top level category organization. You can create slices into the virtual mail database represented by your folders and folder tree, but creating QuickFolder categories, and assigning them to chosen QuickFolder shortcut tabs. QuickFolders is well maintained, consistently updated, always fixed. It keeps up with the TBird updates, and always works.I recommend QuickFolders, and hope to see it continue to be maintained across operating systems. Really, a great tool. A great add-on.

Responsive developer. Exceptional app. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This adds some important functions to Thunderbird. After updating to to TB 17.0.2 yesterday I had an error problem. By this morning, I already had the fix. Great job, great app! Thanks!

Great and well-maintained! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Not only this is a great add-on to enhance the mail windows, its author is actively maintaining it for both Thunderbird and SeaMonkey, diligently reading bug reports and fixing problems found by users of both mailers on all three of Windows, Linux and Mac, and on 32- and 64-bit processors. :-) :-) :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is the best Add-In ever. Instead of hunting through a list of local folders that look the same in order to file my emails into, I can now simply move them to and retrieve them from, the ones I am currently using the most. It is easy and quick - as the Quickfolders are visually prominent and stand out. I can display the ones I am working on as they change ... project-by-project and client-to-client - in a snap. It even works for sub-folders too.The support is amazing. I have compromised eye sight, and Alex entered into a string of detailed emails with me, helping me so that I could more easily handle the Toolbar. Absolutely 5 stars!

Love this add-on! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A practically indispensable add-on for Thunderbird! It's the first add-on that I make sure works, before doing any upgrade; I can't live without it!
