Please update for the later versions of Firefox

Filter Button

Full of bugs... Rated 2 out of 5 stars

If it would work properly, I would have rated it a 5 stars but it has issues. I am running Windows 8.1, Thunderbird 24.4.0, and dual monitor -- I have tired it without any other add-on running with the same results. Here are the issues:

1) sometimes not all the the time but some times it causes the whole button bar with "Reply Reply To All Forward" etc... to be move over the From line. Hover the mouse pointer over the "bar" causes it to move back to the right hand side of the window.

2) The button right now should be only matching one filter but it has 3 filters. And if I run one the "bad" filters it moves the message to what ever that filter says even though it isn't correct.

3) It shows that there are filters for messages that doesn't have a filter.

There are no errors in the "Error Console." I do however have screen captures to show what I am talking about.


Edit March 25, 2014 2:30 a.m. CDT (Reply):
I have multiple accounts setup (7 accounts.) My Primary account has over 560 filters in place with about 900 private folders and I don't know how many public folders -- this account points to an IMAP4 server with about 1 TB of space for me and a couple of others. All the others are either IMAP4 or POP3 accounts that have filters pointing to folders on the Primary Account and at least one of those accounts has over 250 filters.

With a clean profile with about 20 filters in place and only one account, I don't have the issue with multiple filters and incorrect filters. I did try to copy the msgFilterRules.dat over to the new profile, as I was using the same primary account, and had the same results with multiple filters showing up. I do have ever have the issue of the whole button bar being moved over the subject. I have discovered that this happens when I have had Thunderbird up and running for a very long period.


Not sure if it works... Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I used to use Tagzilla but development of the add-on has stopped and technically wasn't compatible with Thunderbird past version 8 however worked fine until v24. Tagizilla would randomly pick a Quote from a file that now contains over 2000 quotes. I do not want to have each of these as a single file -- meaning what is now in one file in over 2000 separate files.

Super Tab Mode

Doesn't work with version 16 of Firefox as advert. Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Would have rated it a 5 prior to version 16 of Firefox as previous sessions are lost. Previous sessions is one of the reasons that I use Firefox.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.81). 


Update for Thunderbird 8 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This needs to be updated to the latest version of Thunderbird which is 8.

It seems that the website needs updating as well.


This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.3.4).
