Great plugin for looking at an overview of the year's events Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Especially useful if you are trying to plan longer events, like a couple of weeks holiday.

The reported slowness in refreshing is a non-issue in my mind. There is a lot of information on the one view so it is bound to take a moment to render.

Yearview Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very cool Add-on. Thanks a lot!
It would be really cool to show the year with the months in columns. No matter which day the first of a Month is. Weekands could be gray to show which day of the week it is.

Slow, but does the job nicely!

Perfect but very Slow Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Why wasn't this feature part of the lightning core from the very beginning?
Thank you, fabrix!
Unbelievable that it took until 2012 for another heroic plugin author to come up with it.
(Sorry, Philipp Kewisch, but your year view was outdated long ago)

Year view shows the necessity of continuous display of multiday events (Bug 199732,

Unfortunately, i have to say that it takes ages to load a year's data from my servers and render the view. All in all this proofs once more the destiny of the thunderbird project altogether. Not only the codebase, but the whole idea of a communication client needs a complete redesign.

Perfect! This add a very useful feature (for example when planning holidays) which is missing in many other calendars!
While it IS a bit slow while refreshing, this does not affect usability in my opinion. Good job!

This version works with the new Thunderbird 10.

To make this addon work in v9, simply unzip (yes .xpi files are zip files) into a folder, modify install.rdf to have <em:maxVersion>9.*</em:maxVersion>. Then re-zip that folder, and rename back to .xpi.. Install, works fine, But, as normal, remember, its not been beta, alpha, tested on v9, so if it breaks, its your fault!!!

Otherwise, it works for me, and great,, next a higher-res monitor!

please make available for 9 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

please please please, pretty please :) please Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great add-on! Actually vear view is one of the important reasons to stick to TB. Of course I'm suffering a lot with a new TB 9.0.1 without the year view,
I would kindly encourage you to release TB 9.x compatible version as
soon as possible.
Many thanks in advance
Kind regards, Borut

Not working with TB 9.0.1 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love this Add-On so much. It helps me organise my holidays and so on. But now I have Thunderbird 9.0.1 and it does not work any more. What can I do? I'm lost without Year View ...

A great idea but let down by poor implementation. Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Year View is unbelievably slow and has always has been for some reason? When you click on the Year View tab it will take forever to load up all your calendar entries resulting in you unable to use Thunderbird until it completes. You sit there being mesmerised by the little spinning wheel! Why this happens is a mystery which 'fabrix' has never been able to fix.

The logical option is to disable the loading up of calendar entries and just use it as a quick way to look up future dates. It's nice to have a year view; but the UI is so crowded when it loads up entries it's not really much use anyway. Having an option to disable some or all of your calendar entries would be a great addition. As it is, it's unusable and I've had to disable it.

I will try and use it again in the future and see if it's fixed or a disable calendar entries option has been implemented, because, as I said, it's a good idea, and I appreciate the effort, but I won't hold my breath.

Fabrix, if you have no time to develop this any more can't you release a version that doesn't load up the calendar entries so you will just have a nice clean year view?


Is not a mistery:
Year View was a quick hack, based on month view: it draws 12 mont view, 365+ box, each box with others box and labels. For every refresh it loads all year events for every enabled calendar, sorting them day by day and redrawing all boxes and labels.
Suerly there are better ways to do it, but unluckily I haven't time to take care. But I accept code on github, if you want :)

Conflit avec l'affichage des numéros de semaine Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Installé sur TB 7 (devenu 8 depuis!) sous Mac OS X 10.6.8. Ça fonctionne, mais comme d'autres utilisateurs, les numéros de semaine disparaissent. Je rejoins l'avis de ceux qui pensent que le gain ne vaut pas la perte. Dommage. Contrairement à ce que pense IGRAHAM, il ne s'agit pas d'une coïncidence: les numéros de semaine sont revenus après désinstallation du module. Désinstallé chez moi, en attendant de fixer le problème.

Nice add-on Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I'm a Seamonkey user, so I tried your add-on with Seamonkey 2.4.1 (after modification of the install.rdf file).
It seems to work correctly. Please, for the next version, can you make your add-on officially compatible with Seamonkey ?


This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.0). 

Please, send me your modified install.rdf file and I will include it in next release. You could send it via email or use gitub...

Just Say No Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Good idea. Poor implementation.Seemed to work at first. Then I changed calendars and Thunderbird froze. And yes, with this app installed, week numbering does disappear. For what it provides (a year in review) and what it takes away, not worth the bother.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4.0). 

As I've written already, this extension in veeeery slow to redraw. It's like drawing 12 month views. If you want to see a lot of calendars with a lot of events, it could take a long time...
For the week numbers: I can't understand. I'm using it on TB 6.0 wiht lightning 1.0b5 and it shows up like you can see in screenshots.
If you could provide more information on your setup and what is missing I could try to fix it :) You can use the "support email" or the github's issues system.
Thank you!

Very nice and usefull add-on... where is the update for TB5????
Slow but you can manage that by creating several calenders (work, home, kids, birthdays, holidays...) and put them on or off....

waiting to be published (or on github, if you feel brave...) :)

thumbs up Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Good add on most useful
However my week numbers appearer to have disappeared (in all views) possibly this is just coincidence and its nothing to do with Year View ?

special highlight Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I love the year view idea! but it is getting overcrowded and slow, if there was a option to hide events that happens every week or every month? so I could easily see the ones that only happens once or yearly, and it would load fast! :D, also in the show order, it could be priorized events that happens less often on top, and not by hour!
