In a little more detail...
I create addons for Thunderbird, have served as a Mozilla addon editor in the past, and am currently a Thunderbird core reviewer.
Most of my addons consist of attempts to push Thunderbird in new directions, and frequently have required changes to the backend to allow extensions to do new things.
Most of my current effort is devoted to my ExQuilla addon, which adds support for Thunderbird to use Exchange Web Services to access email and contacts.
Add-ons I've created
Twitter for Thunderbird (Bundle). Provides twitter statuses in the format of email messages, and allows updating Twitter status from Thunderbird.This addon packages the TweeQuilla-app extension with the required "New Account Types" extension.
Automatic tagging using Bayesian statistics
Allows other extensions to create new account types. This extension (sometimes called SkinkGlue) should not normally be downloaded directly by users, but instead is included in bundles with other extensions, such as the extension TweeQuilla.
This add-on is not compatible with your version of Thunderbird because of the following:
- Add-on uses binary components.
How to fix the core code Rated 5 out of 5 stars
As mentioned by others, this addon does not work with Thunderbird 38 due to an encoding issue. I've looked at the code, and presented the trivial change needed to restore read/write capability of template files. See http://mesquilla.com/2015/07/15/fixing-quicktext-addon-for-thunderbird/
I've contacted the author asking that this change be done, or someone else released to do the change.
