Please update this extension for TB 119 (and up)! It's absolutely essential now that TB starts so extremely slowly...

Should be default feature in Thunderbird.

Please give us a v116 compatible version

I confirmed this issue was resolved on the TB115.2.0, Windows 10 Pro 22H2 build 19045.3393. It seems that the icon's behavior in the task tray has been changed due to the update of TB.

==========
This is a great add-on. However, on TB115, even if I read a mail, I still get an unread symbol icon in the Windows 10 Pro 22H2 task tray when I enable "When Thunderbird is minimized, it to the tray".

Works perfect in Manjaro Linux + KDE, with KDocker. Thank you very much!

Let;s start by stating you need to read up on the Mozilla add-ons and security.

I will paste it here for you to save you the trouble...

--------------------------------------------------
"Have full, unrestricted access to Thunderbird, and your computer

The extension is using an older technology and has full access to Thunderbird’s internal APIs and does not need to request individual permissions. Up to Thunderbird 68 almost every add-on had this unrestricted access without specifically asking for it. Add-ons request this permission, as long as the new permission based API system does not yet offer the functionality they need.

Extensions requesting this permission might:

Change every aspect of Thunderbird’s user interface
Read and modify all your data (messages, contacts, calendars, web content and passwords)
Read, modify and execute any file on your computer

Add-ons published to addons.thunderbird.net (ATN) are subject to human review. If you install extensions from other locations, you have to be sure that you can trust the source. "
--------------------------------------------------

This add-on is one such add-on and therefore it should be as safe as any other that requires this so called, no requesting permission.

I also wanted to point out (specifically to Firefox user aafc1b) that you can use a shortcut to open TB in minimised mode but you must install the shortcut into "shell: common startup" and not "shell:startup".

I have used this add-on, well, since I started using TB and never had any issues on a Windows 11 (or 10 for that matter) and it's a god send. Having to minimise using the minimise button doesn't bode well with other apps which do the same thing when you click the CLOSE button but as others have said, this should be something which is included in TB, but not necessarily activated/enabled by default.

Please excuse misspellings and anything that may not make sense or cause offence as the medication I take can have an adverse effect on my mind.

I'm using TB 102.7.2 With Win 11 Pro, so I thought I would give this a try. However, as mentioned by another reviewer, I have concerns about it having unrestricted access to TB and my computer.

I went to Tools > Settings and checked "When Thunderbird is minimized, move it to the tray" under "System integration". Clicking the Minimize button as opposed to Close to avoid unrestricted access is just as simple to do.

I also went to "C:\Users\[user]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup" (or Win-R shell:startup) and created a shortcut to the TB executable. I tried setting it to start minimized in the Properties Shortcut tab, but this didn't seem to work as TB still started up as maximized. I can live with this as it's easy enough to minimize it and still have it in the tray.

If TB is truly open source, using my 30+ years of experience as a software developer, I might be inclined to take a look at the TB code and add a right-click menu to the tray icon that has at least an Exit command to truly close the app instead of opening it up and closing it that way (as mentioned by another reviewer). If anyone can point me in the right direction to the code that handles the WM_MINIMIZE command (or whatever handles closing the app), it would speed up the process if no one else is inclined to add that functionality.

It works perfectly fine for me. I like having it in the Windows system Tray rather than the taskbar. Don't know why this function is not built in.

Unrestricted Access? Uh. No. Do not install this...

Thank you, Dirk Steinmetz! "right-click - turn it off", if you screw it down, then in general - fire!

Fonctionne très bien avec 91.
Je regrette que cette extension ne comporte pas de clic droit pour ouvrir un menu et faciliter la fermeture ou autre.

Works fine in conjunction with Thunderbird's native setting to minimize to tray and a Windows startup folder shortcut set to open Thunderbird minimized.

Only one star because this extension lacks a critical feature -- a right click on the tray icon to pop up a menu with an exit option in order to easily and quickly shut down the program.

Does what it promises. I give 3 stars because it is not really useful to me. If it were minimizing to TRAY, I would give 5 stars. I need to keep Thunderbird running because of calendar alarms. What's the use of a calendar if it's not running?

Does what it says. Will it be updated for Thunderbird 102?

The version bump for 102 should be out now. :)

I only just installed, but some observations:

No apparent performance hit. So; Thunderbird does not seem to be slower, and also, CPU and RAM usage does not seem to be any different.
No issues with reliability so far either.

As for functionality: 100% what I was looking for (lmao). Literally installed this within a couple of hours of getting Thunderbird.

I'll update this review if anything drastically changes I guess

OS: Windows 10
CPU: i5 2500k
GPU: GTX 960

Updated video drivers. Kaspersky Anti-Virus in the background. Again, it works (for me), and isn't broken.

Hi rsjtdrjgfuzkfg,
I saw that with the latest beta version of thunderbird 99.01 your "Minimize on close" doesn't work anymore.
Will you still make it compatible?
Thank you.
