Not working on latest Thanderbird 38.4 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Not working on latest Thanderbird 38.4

UI seems not to be tailored for Windows 7 and above Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I really didn’t want to write this as a review, but there seems to be no other contact option anywhere for feature requests etc.

So … What I’ve been hoping for for a long time is something that works like Outlook, where the new mail icon is superimposed over the application icon in the taskbar using an icon overlay. This is “politer” than the flashing amber, which suggests that the program actually needs something from you right now. (I realise that in Vista and earlier the notification choices were pretty limited, but for anyone using Windows 7 upwards (I’m in 10) it would be nice to have a more elegant solution :-)

New Mail Attention update does not install Rated 1 out of 5 stars

"There was an error downloading New Mail Attention"

And since there was an error DOWNLOADING it, why are you leaving a star to my extension? This is an issue with Mozilla, not with New Mail Attention.
Anyway, you can download the.xpi file from ( and install it in Thunderbird selecting "Install Add-On from file".

Like this Addon really much!! Thanks for developing it.

But, there is alwayss a but :P I'd like to have custom color notification per account or folder. In a post 5 years ago, you already said, it is depending on the system color. But is it possible to get somthing like that working? Would be appreciated really much!!

Great Add-on That Actually Works! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This new mail Add-on actually works and is the only one that does 100% of the time, and that includes Thunderbird's own notifications have never worked properly. It would be an even better add-on if it had pop-up and sound options, here's hoping.

Works great. Only flaw I see so far is, when both clients (outlook , thunderbird) are open and the mail is already read in outlook, it'd have been better if icon highlight would just turn off automatically.

Simple but working well! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The Thunderbird built-in notification often fails. But this one does not.

Works fine on openSuse 13.1 64 bit KDE Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Using thunderbird, when a mail arrives, the thunderbird rectangle in the panel obtain a green border.
It does its duty.

The option for "compatibility for Minimize to tray plus" does not work because "Minimize to tray plus" has been replaced with "MinimizeToTray revived".

Funktioniert sehr gut unter Windows 8.1 und Thunderbird 24.3

Very useful but absolutely NEEDS to support chat too Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is a very useful extension and works well in all instances *except* chat. Chat has been a built-in feature for a while, so support for it would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you! :-)

Very cool! I've added chat support. Contact me, if you want

Thank you, I just sent you an email to your personal address

Good job, but I would appreciate chat support Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works great with TB17 both under windows 7 pro and linux with xfce4 (panel) + xmonad. If it supports chat notification it would be flawless to me.

Not working with TB v17.0.2 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Installed on TB v17.0.2 - Win7 Home Premium SP1. It does not seem to work at all. What could I be doing wrong? How should I troubleshoot? Thx, Rob

Update: OK, I figured it out - it is working. However the TB task bar icon does not blink - it only highlights. How can I make it blink?

Works fine, but no chat notification support Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Does what's expected (I'm using Ubuntu with Awesome window manager) - when new email arrives, but not for new chat messages. Would be great to have it work for chat as well, with ability to enable/disable seprately for email and chat - would then give five stars ;)

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great work! It would be fantastic and consistent with new features of Thunderbird if it could also notify of new messages on chat, or I have missed something?

Thank you.
Unfortunately you are not missing anything: the new chat system is not integrated in my add-on so far.

How stupid-wont install in my currant version of Firefox!

before saying "stupid" you should pay a little more attention to addon description: this is for Thunderbird, not for Firefox, darling...

Awesome Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Just what I've been looking for since moving to Mint 12 and disabling the notification pop-up window at the bottom. The only improvement I can suggest is to allow the user to select it to apply to sub-folders too. I only get the desktop notification when an email arrives in my Inbox. Great app though. Thanks!

Hi! You can probably get what you want in 2 ways:
1) (suggested) by creating a message filter using the custom action "get attention" when a new mail arrives into your subfolder;
2) by right-clicking on that subfolder, selecting "properties..." and finally checking "when getting new messages for this account, always check this folder".
Please let me know if you succeed.
Thank you so far.
