Great addon for TB Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Quicktext was so far a really great addon and in review one of most valueable I've installed so far. For me it's broken for 2 months now and as I've seen for others too. Nevertheless I want to thank all members involved for sharing such a useful addon. Thank you!

A few days earlier I stumbled upon an alternative to Quicktext, which i can recommend everyone who is in need of such a great time saver.

It's called AutoHotkey for Windows and Autokey for Linux. It needs some configuration but it does the job same job (and much more if configured right).

For Linux use the package manager search for: Autokey-py3
For Windows is here the link:
For Mac I found also some web site which offer these apps.
Key word for searching is "auto completion" or "text expander".

Also two article from which you get more information about these kind of applications:

Hope it helps!

Indispensable Rated 5 out of 5 stars

One of the best extension for Thunderbird and Postbox:
it works so smoothly that one can completely forget it...
until an update breaking it let you realise how indispensable it is.

Will you consider updating it for the WebExtension ?

Also eventually making it available for the lastest version of Postbox ?
The present version limits it to PB 3.0.* while the 5.52 is in beta (and so far it works as expected ...)

What about after TB 58/60? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I love Quicktext. I use it every day!
Did you notice that TB will need a (partial) compatibility with webextension soon? ( Will your addon be compatible? Thanks!

I have used Tb 45.8.0 with QuickText until now, but... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

How long I could keep it.

I tag informmations at bottom of message using QuickText.

QuickText is as default program.

Another workaround? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I installed a second copy of Thunderbird (v45.0) after downloading it from:

Doing so does NOT remove your current version. By using the older version, I was able to install Quicktext which then works with both versions (I'm also using v52.5).

Great extension but the workaround doesn't word for me Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I tried KD's workaround (posted Dec 12, 2017) but it didn't fix Quicktext. Any other ideas?

WorkAround For New TB Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Dear All,

Even my Quicktext add-on was not supported by the latest update V52.5. then I tried something and it worked like magic. I downloaded the add-on file and then dragged it to add-ons page of TB manually and Whollla... It worked like charm and it installed my favorite add-on Quciktet in the latest version of TB.

Hope it might help you to....

Рзарабы, плиз доработайте под последний Thunderbirdваше расширение - оно лучшее.

Как без рук без него - придется сносить новый тандербёрд и возвращать старый,чтобы ваш аддон работал.

So long Dear Friend Rated 5 out of 5 stars

One of my all-time favourite add-ons, the only thing worthwhile in Thunderbird, has now passed on for good.


Was still working with a workaround even at the beginning of 57 beta. Alas that there is no longer any development on this as 59 alpha would have proved stronger than ever, but for this one short-coming: the absence of QuickText and QuickText Pro.

Still works with TB52 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I wrongly reported that it does not work, but it was my mistake - I was using a patched version from back when we had the same kind of problem once again - in 2015. The new version does work (Thank you a lot :rkent)

Too bad this plugin is not developed any longer. I would be happy to buy the pro version or maybe sponsor the merging of the two. RKent? Anybody?

You would find it extremely useful to look at the website again, more carefully, particularly in the

"Quicktext - Support and Help" forum.

can you update quicktext PRO too ? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have purchase quick text pro but in your website seems not updated the pro version, can you update for be able to work on v45 ?

We are working on quicktext pro.

We are considering how to handle quicktext pro. Here is a test version you could try that should work with TB45:

Geniales Tool - Danke für Update für T45 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Das Tool ist genial und ich habe mich grün und blau geärgert, als es nach einem automatischen Update auf Thunderbird 45 nicht mehr funktioniert hat. Dachte auch alle meine Vorlagen wären verschwunden. Jetzt ist alles wieder da! Vielen Dank!

Thunderbird 43 is the answer! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I mistakenly updated to Thunderbird 45 the other day and everything stopped working - Quicktext, Pasthyperlink...

I'm glad to say that simply by reinstalling Thunderbird 43 and disabling automatic updates, everything is now back to normal and working properly. Delighted...
