Rated 5 out of 5 stars

If the Mozilla developers had any brains and actually used their software, they would incorporate this add-on into every version of Thunderbird as a default function. Sadly they are clueless and still haven't caught on, even on version 13.0

I don't know how people use Thunderbird without this add-on, minimizing to tray is the ONLY option as far as I am concerned when it comes to an email desktop program. No accidental closing, less clutter on the main task bar, and you still get all the notifications from the tray and can manually/force retrieve your emails if you want with a simple right-click command from the tray!

Even the new Minimize to Tray: Revived is very flawed and doesn't work nearly as well as this add-on does, which is a shame as this add-on is only good to Thunderbird 2.0... which has many vulnerabilities now.

I hope this developer re-creates this add-on for the later versions of Thunderbird, because it might just be the best, simplest, and most practical add-on I have ever seen in the entire Mozilla lineup.

Flawless would be an understatement. I have never had any problems with this add-on, and it has always worked without fail. From the very beginning it has done everything I ever wanted it to.

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I LOVED this add-on but it doesn't work even by being hacked anymore. Updates are desperately needed....TB 7 crashes if you hack it to install. Please update! 5 stars when working!

No Thunderbird 7 Support Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This was GREAT extension. I really hope the developer will update this one. I would to see it make a come back. It really cleaned up my task bar. Two stars since it's been so long and no Tbird 7 support.

Sunbird 1.0b Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Does not work for Sunbird 1.0b. Would of been nice if it worked with the last version. Using Thunderbird with Lighting is the solution since modifying the rdf file doesn't work so well.

Does exactly what you expect it to do.

Try "MinimizeToTray revived" instead Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I too was unable to use this add-on after the update to Thunderbird 3.1.2. A nice replacement is "MinimizeToTray revived"

working with thunderbird 3 or any version Rated 5 out of 5 stars

works fine with thunderbird. just a small change required.

download the installer and open it using 7-zip (www.7-zip.org) or winrar.

there will be a file "install.rdf". open it using notepad or wordpad.

there will be text like:



.......
xxx



change the value of xxx to your version of thunderbird or greater. save the file and install the addon.

Note: using 7-zip indtall.rdf may not open from archive. so firstly extract the file "install.rdf" and the edit it, save it and then copy it to the addon installer.
