More about missing Labels Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hi Iago,

I discovered that the labels are only missing when I have set the toolbar to icons only. If I change the toolbar to icons and text, then the labels are there.

I'd really like to see the labels for Unified Search even if I have the toolbar icons set to icon only.

Also, when the toolbar is set to icons only, there are NO icons for the selectors (Sender, Recipients, etc) and no tooltips for them either.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6.0). 

Thanks Tanstaafl_bh, is very helpful your comment.

UPDATED: This bug was solved with version 0.6.1 and higher: now, if only-icons mode is selected, options without icons will show their text, others options will show only icons.
Proposal icons for options without icon are welcome!, in order to create a more visual widget and smaller bar when only-icons is active.

I just was setting up an account at github.com where host this extension with source control and a simply issues-tracker. I open an issue with your problem: https://github.com/IagoSRL/TBX-Unified-Search/issues/1
I published too an email support (iagosrl@gmail.com) and site support (twitter.com/iagosrl) in the extension info for better conversations about problems (comments here are welcome and useful, but not good for conversations). Use it when consider.
When I get more free time, I will work on it.

Thanks

Great work Iago on this fantastic addon...However, there is one problem I've noticed, and one thing missing...UPDATE: Another bug - right now, the labels for the criteria (Sender, Recipients, Subject, etc) are totally blank on mine...******************************1. Missing is the auto-clear functionality that the Quickfilter searchbox exhibits when you switch to a different folder...Yes, the search is no longer applied (as long as you haven't stickied it), but the contents of the search box is not cleared, when it should be.2. I have had problems with the search criteria getting confused/out of sync, where I get zero results when I know there are emails that match the criteria I have entered.In order to 'fix' the problem, I have to open the Quickfilter toolbar, and deselect and reselect the desired criteria (normally just 'Subject, Sender and Recipients'), then it will find the results...I haven't figured out how to reliably reproduce the problem, but it happens often enough that you should be able to if you're looking for it.Otherwise, an essential addon for TB5+!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6.0). 

Hi Tanstaafl_bh,
I confirm your bug number 1: auto-clear don't work if selected folder is changed (only works if quickfilter bar is opened, what is not usable). I am looking for a solution.
Bug number 2: I can't confirm, but knowing the problems I had in the past with synchronisation between Unified Search options and Quick Filter options, all is possible ;-). Synchronisation is being harder than I believe when started this extension. If you can give me some extra info I thank you:
- What operating system and version?
- What Thunderbird version?
- When this bug happens you,
- are you using the horizontal criteria bar or the vertical criteria menu (where are the filter options, horizontal or vertical)?
- all options checked in Unified Search are the same are checked in Quick Filter toolbar?

About bug 'the labels for the criteria are totally blank on mine', I don't understand well what meaning: Texts are missing? Every time? When texts/labels are missing, labels in Quick Filter toolbar are missing too? What screen size are you using?

UPDATE: bug 'labels are blank' fixed in 0.6.1 version, I'm working to fix the others 2 bugs (I filed like issue#2 and issue#3 at github), but I found a Thunderbird bug that involves into the problem of out-of-sync:
Bugzilla.mozilla.org bug 582576 (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=582576), when switch to Account Central (the root folder, that doesn't contain messages only account options), quick filter options are preserved but not applied when go again to a normal folder (it seems de-synchronized; this happens with all extensions disabled too). I'm working to create a workaround for this and solves bugs 2 and 3 in the version 0.6.3. More details and further advances at github.com.

Thanks very much for the feedback,
IagoSRL
