Simply Amazing Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have been using this add-on with TB 3.1.15 for a month now with no significant errors so far (see below for a minor problem). Congrats to the developer.

Strong Points:
1. The colorful pictorial representation of threads in a time line is a beauty.
2. The knots representing the messages are clickable and open the
messages. More importantly, moving a message to a different folder has no adverse effect.

Weak points:
None so far.

Problems faced:
the option to display the time between two messages doesn't work for me

Doesn't work with XP-64 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

v2.1.702. Open a message and it just says "loading threadvis" and does nothing - forever.
RC on the 'loading....' message, and the formatting of the menu is shot to hell and also does nothing.
Pity. It looks great (for other people).

Great addon, but I have problems with some messages. Sometimes messages threadvis graph is not shown. If I right click on the empty space right to the addresses the contextual menu of the addon appears, but the graph is not there.
It always happens on the same messages, but I could not understand why they are different from the others.

Graphical errors on OS X Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The addon itself would be very great. Unfortunatley it doesn't work correctly on Thunderbird 3.1.7 on my Macbook with Snow Leopard 10.6.6.
If the addon is activated all my HTML Newsletters I receive, get graphical errors. If I scroll down the view of a HTML-email I get horizontal white lines in the Email.
If the addons is deactivated everything is fine. I'm sad, I really would like the addon, but this is a nogo. Please fix this, thanks!

This is a superb AddOn. It will show me the thread of a conversation even if it is split over mutliple folders. This is great for people who, unlike me, actually still sort there emails according to projects, etc.

This addon is (apart from next-Message) my primary navigation tool.

I have an issue where I have 5 messages in one conversation, starting with the original message and four Re:s. For some reason, the original message is only linked to the last Re, and the 3 in the middle are linked together, with a black box at the front of the group. I don't know why it's doing this, as the first Re: is clearly replying to the original, with quotes and everything, but the addon doesn't seem to recognize this.

Update 3.1 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

@David. Sure you can think of viruses. But I'm not going to upload it to Mozilla because I've validated it up to version 3,5

How to do it yourself:
Via 7Zip open the XPI. Select the file install.rdf and edit these lines:
3.5
2.1.682b

Close your text editor and 7Zip will ask to update the package. Now you can install the XPI in thunderbird.

I've added on the version a 'b' to see the difference with the original one.

No offense, Bart, but how do we know you're not posting a virus?

Threadvis working on TB3.0.5 Linux mint 8 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Ls,

This add-on seems to work on Thunderbird 3.0.5 on Linux Mint 8.
The only thing was that it didn't register as installed.
The add-ons menu was keeping the 'restart to install threadvis' notification.

Looking at the profile i noticed that the directory in the profile of thunderbird was owned by root.
When i did a:
sudo chown -R \{A23E4120-431F-4753-AE53-5D028C42CFDC\}
And started Thunderbird again, it started up and worked.

Hope this is a pointer for you if your threadvis isn't installing.

Great! The new update works "perfectly" in my TB3.0.4. There's some issues with messages not getting indexed to the correct thread, but that appears to be an error in TB3's indexing mechanism.

If you have similar problems, here's the workaround I've come across using trial-and-error: Select one or more messages which don't show correctly in TV. Copy them to a temporary folder. Delete the originals. Move the copied versions back to the original folder(s). This seems to fix TB3's corrupted index files ... I can't find another way of getting TB to regenerate its main index.

Since I shifted to TB 3.x I missed a lot this excellent and very useful add-on. Despite having installed the latest version of this add-on released on 27th of April, it hasn't worked at all with the TB3.04 that I have installed on Windows XP. When I select a message it appears "Loading Threadvis" but does not go further than that message. Do someone have any suggestions? Thank you ;)

I have stopped using thunderbird 3 series due to the lack of this addon. I have about 30 folders, and this addon helped me keep track of conversations.
I tried the latest update (2 Apr) but it is not showing up as it used to do on TB 2 series.
Will try reinstalling thunderbird and recheck.
Thumbs up for this excellent addon.

One of the most useful add-ins ever Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I couldn't do my job without it.

But now have 3.03 and can't use ThreadVis! If only I could help with the update...
