Workaround works with stable version, not with beta Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I tried to get the addon working with the version I was using (beta: 58.0b2) but just couldn't. So in order to find out if it was me or the addon, I decided to test it on another computer, with the stable version 52.5.0 installed. And, well it immediately worked...
Thus I came to the conclusion that the addon does not work with the beta version of firefox. Can anyone confirm that?
I still give it five stars since it worked for so long and it was always one of the first things I installed, when I set-up a new computer.

It works great on Thunderbird 52+:
1. Download the addon
2. Unzip it with 7zip (for example)
3. Open install.rdf file with your favorite text editor
4. Find the <!-- Thunderbird --> block and update the em:maxVersion section to your version
5. Zip files and change extension from .zip to .xpi
6. That's it. Drag'n'drop it to Thunderbird.

I'd like to confirm that the fix suggested in a previous review is working fine:
Continua funcionando no TB 52 porém... Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Aqui a extensão continua funcionando no Thunderbird 52, porém é necessário instalar manualmente. Na página da extensão clique na opção "baixar assim mesmo" no local que diz que a versão não é compatível e guarde o local onde o arquivo foi salvo, agora abra a janela de complementos do Thunderbird, clique na engrenagem na parte superior ao lado da caixa de pesquisa de extensões, clique em "Instalar de um arquivo" e selecione o arquivo "minimizetotray_revived-1.3.2-fx+sm+tb-windows" que você baixou e instale o complemento, depois de instalado e reiniciado, abra novamente a janela de extensões, vá nas opções do MinimizeToTray e na aba "Principal" em "Minimizar para área de notificação" marque a opção "Ao invés de fechar" e dê OK. Pronto! Sempre que você fechar o Thunderbird no X ele continuará aberto como um ícone na sua área de notificação e pode ser reaberto com um duplo clique.

Still can be used on Thunderbird 52.*. Follow my steps as below. 雷鸟52.*仍可用，参考以下步骤 Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Extract / Drag out install.rdf with WinZip / WinRAR from MinimizeToTray.xpi. Open install.rdf with Notepad. Ctrl+H to replace all <em:maxVersion>50.* with <em:maxVersion>52.*. Drag install.rdf into previous WinZip / WinRAR window. Then drag MinimizeToTray.xpi into Thunderbird Addon Manager. Done!
用 WinRAR 或 WinZip 打开下载下来的 MinimizeToTray.xpi 安装文件，拖拽 install.rdf 到电脑桌面或其他任意地方。用记事本打开 install.rdf 后用 Ctrl+H 替换所有 <em:maxVersion>50.* 为 <em:maxVersion>52.* 并保存。把 install.rdf 拖拽回之前的 WinRAR 或 WinZip 窗口。最后拖拽 xpi 文件到雷鸟的扩展管理器窗口安装即可。

Can't use right click on tray icona Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Overall excellent, but since a few last updates of Firefox, i can't use right click on tray icons. This gets really frustrating when i get a few windows minimzed to the tray and they just sit there without any way to close them.
