Very nice job, thanks ! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
The automatic recognition is far more handy than the dropdown list at the side of the Spelling button.
When you have time, if you can migrate it to Firefox Quantum ...
Not to forget : I learned in a forum that in recent versions of Thunderbird you have to go to the configuration editor, change "extensions.dictionary-switcher.autodetect" from false to true. It would be a good idea to write that in the documentation.

I do not have the interface that is promised by the screen copies. Neither folders, nor organize. Only Opened tabs, and saved tabs. And under that, a tree view with the current folder, and when I click on it the other ones in the lower level. Why ?
I can do nothing of that, so I have to uninstall it.
I do not know what happened that I did not have the extension as it is supposed to be.

I should have made proposals on the site if I had found how to create an account.
This extension is a good idea (and replaces things that no more run), but needs to be improved.
By the way it appears that critics for two different extensions appear on the same page here.
I tested the one with Web Extension, as I use Firefox Quantum, version 59.0.2 - I presume this extension is somewhat recent.
About the results, I see the active tab displayed with a different colour, and this is why I installed the extension.
That being said, this background colour is at random, and the foreground colour (font colour) is fixed (in the options) so this not always optimum.
I regret not being able to choose colours for other tabs, classically a set of colours for not loaded tabs, another for inactive tabs ...
Tab Mix Plus has accustomed us to use a nice user interface to choose the colours, well let us forget that for the moment being, it takes some time to develop.
What would really be useful is that the extension sets a style name for the active tab, one for the tabs that are no more loaded, one for the other ones. And also that the documentation gives those style names.
With that, we could personalize properly those styles in userChrome.css (at least the advanced users could do that).
In a second time, as an options interface is proposed, it would be nice that for each of these styles it allows to give a foreground colour, and a background colour. Some of them miss. If time allows, some other attributes as bold could be smart too.
When this urgent stuff is done, I should like to mention that after installing the extension I had to style my personal bar (placestoolbar), as the extension modifies its background colour, and the font colour it had was no more adapted.
If you have time to do some tests at this level, it will help, too.
Thanks for the good job.
Uh oh ... Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Anything I did wrong ? Or anything new ?
I saw no change in the load time, so I opened the task manager before launching the shortcut with -preloader : I see Firefox appear about ten seconds (the time it takes to load), and then disappear.
Version 1.1.1 of the add-on is installed in Firefox (51.0.1, Windows Vista).
I obtained a better result with MinimizedToTray Revived, 1.3.2
Very precious, but lacks in documentation Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I use this extension for years, and it runs pretty good since yesterday (on Thunderbird 45.2.0, Windows XP).
The ability to add elements ids in the configuration to hide them is very nice.
Nevertheless, it is operational only once you say that you get the details about an element by Ctrl Shift (right click) on it, after installing DOM Inspector and Element Inspector.
I put this in that field :
Please pay attention : if you hide the button that puts the message text full screen, to get the normal zoom back you have to double click at the top border of the message.
A notice for people who used to open a message in a new tab by double clicking on it : Maximize Message Pane intercepts the double click, so if you want to display the message in a new tab, you have to ask it via the contextual menu (so, right click on the message, in the message list pane). Double click is the intuitive way to display a message full screen, with this extension this does not necessarily mean open it in a new tab.
One functionnality missing Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Very useful for the two accounts I have with support of the quotas.
Just one thing : it is a pity you have to restart Thunderbird to free the status bar.
I regret that for most of my mail accounts the server does not support quotas, so for them I shall have to content myself of the display of the used size next to the folders.
One thing has to be said : the pop-up is no more a problem for a long time as you can choose if you want it or not.

Nice ! Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Very handy, thank you.
Should you plan a next version, I see two directions, provided this does not restrict the performances of Thunderbird : display the note as a tooltip from the icon in the list ; propose to attach a note to a part of a mail (imagine you received a list of ads, you could want to remember which ones you answered to).
I did not understand Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I searched an extension to add notes to a mail. I saw a notes taking extension that is compatible with Thunderbird, so I thought is was that, unless this was not said.
In fact no, the notes that are shown are quite independent from the mail that is displayed. Sorry for my matching notions together.
Sorry for the site claiming for an appreciation, I have no appreciation to provide as I mistakenly understood what the matter was.

(I wonder whether this will come at the following of what I already said, that had an answer ...)
Oh well, version 0.10.4a3 seems to work fine, thanks (but please read all this before installing). (Thunderbird 11, Firefox 10, Windows XP Home SP3)
Except ... in Firefox I now only have NoScript and InfoLister, whereas beforewards I had more than a dozen extensions :)
I shall see if can catch that back with a backup.
No problem seen in Thunderbird.
Well, here is an update : fortunately, Firefox makes regularly a copy of prefs.js, with a number after the name : prefs-1js, prefs-2.js ... Open prefs.js in the notepad, copy the line that concerns infolister, close the file, rename it. Find a recent version, rename it prefs.js, open it with notepad, paste the line with infolister in it. Save the file. That should run fine. Thank you to help your neighbour with that ;)
I had no problem with Thunderbird. In case that was just a question of chance, I should recommend to do a copy of its prefs.js before installing infolister. You can also verify you have a copy of it for Firefox.
I presume you guess that before opening prefs.js, you are supposed to close the relevant software (Thunderbird or Firefox).
Updating Rated 5 out of 5 stars
You know, Thunderbird and Firefox have a big problem : they are constantly providing new versions.
Do you think a way to list extensions for Thunderbird 11 is planned ? If you work on it, do you think during that time it can become compatible with Thunderbird 12 ?
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Version 0.2.23 works very nice (I particularly use keyboard shortcuts to folders), provided I always refuse updates, as I never could get the following versions work.
Here is the information about my Thunderbird :
Thunderbird version 3.0.3
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; fr; rv:184.108.40.206) Gecko/20081209 Thunderbird/220.127.116.11 Mnenhy/0.7.5.0
(some other extensions are installed)
(Windows is XP home SP3)
Spam problem Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This is a nice extension, but I should say as isampson, and emphasize more as time goes : we receive more and more spam, and happily Thunderbird has very efficient filters against them. Therefore, this extension will be useful again, only when it acts AFTER the spam filters, and not BEFORE as it does as for now. Until then, we here a sound telling we received a mail, and we do not react as we think it is a spam.
(did not find how to place this where it should be)
>I hope I am understanding gloops problem right, but if you set spam filter to dump the bad >mail into other than inbox folder and set inbox folder alert only using this, then you >should be able to avoid getting spam alerts.
>That's what I did exactly and I am happy as clams!
>No more false alarms. Well it does change the icon of T-bird which says there is msg, but >that's default behavior. I do not get a pop up box or sound. That's good enough for me.
I should appreciate a lot to do this.
Could you give me a few clues ? Does it impact another extension ?
This is what happens on my machine :
- the spam is received in "Inbox"
- the alert (specific to "Inbox") is played
- the spam is transfered to "junk emails" by the spam filter
- the alert is not cancelled, I DID hear it and I am in front of the screen whereas I should not, and I see there is no new mail
- the general alert for the mail account has NEVER been played, only the one specific to Inbox, theoretically meaning "Inbox with no spams as they were excluded by the filter", and in fact appearing to be "Inbox first including spam, but these are excluded once you are extracted from where you were and arrive to see you came for nothing". This is rather long for a folder name, is not it ?
I regret that the development team has chosen not to be joinable, as the critics section is not planned to be a forum.
