I've long dreamed about being able to take an email and turn it into a task just by dragging and dropping, and this lets me do just that! It also has a thoughtful visual interface that shows you which mails are linked to which tasks, and vice versa. All in all, very convenient and well thought out!
Just a couple of things need work: the link between a task and an email gets broken when I move or archive the email on an IMAP server. Parts of the interface are clunky, such as moving from a mail to a task or vice versa, and the English manual is confusing and needs editing. But I'm sure this will improve with time, and it will only make a great extension even better. I'm already an addict!
My favorite "can't live without it" extension.
Here's a tip: if you have a MacBook with a multi-touch trackpad, you can set up Firefox to trigger NextPlease with a trackpad gesture. Just type "about:config" into your address bar, then type "gesture" into the "Filter" box. You will see several gestures listed, such as "browser.gesture.swipe.right" and "browser.gesture.twist.right". Choose the gesture you want, and then double-click it and replace the existing string with "nextpleasekey" (for going to the next page in a list) or "nextpleaseprevkey" (for going to the previous page). You can always get the default behavior back by right-clicking the gesture and choosing "Reset".
I enabled "smart forward-or-next/back-or-previous behavior" in the NextPlease preferences, and chose "browser.gesture.swipe.right" for "nextpleasekey" and "browser.gesture.swipe.left" for "nextpleaseprevkey". Now, I can do a 3-finger swipe right to go to the next link *or* forward in the browser history, as appropriate, and a 3-finger swipe left to go back *or* to the previous link. It feels very natural and means I don't have to switch between the trackpad and keyboard!
One of my most indispensable Thunderbird add-ons. Worth it for the Archive! button alone, which lets you move messages to frequently used folders with a single click to keep your inbox clean (like in Gmail).
