Version 5.3 1.0 MiB Funktioniert mit Thunderbird 78.0 und neuer

  • In order to maintain full functionality, this Add-on had to be rewritten as a mail extension with experiment API, which will require full permissions on installation. As regards being allowed to do stuff, it is actually not different with any classic Add-on: they always had full access to all functions within Thunderbird. The modern mail extensions will have much more tightly managed permissions - eventually QuickFolders will also be able use this more modern approach - but the APIs for this have to be created and accepted by Mozilla first. This means a lot of ongoing work for the next 12 months forward - please support this with a license or donation:

Fixed Thunderbird 78 Regressions
  • [issue 106] Backup function does not save general / advanced / layout settings.
  • [issue 108] Some changes in options window are ignored and not stored. Settings that could not be changed from the options screen:
    - Premium / quick move display format
    - General / Message Navigation / Go to next unread mail.

    Also, many layout settings were not updating immediately through the User Interface, because of broken instant apply settings.
  • Fixed highlighting of drop targets when dragging mails into a subfolder.
  • [issue 111] Paint Mode stopped working in Thunderbird 78. You can now use Paint Mode again from the QuickFolders tools menu to change the colors of multiple tabs. (For best results use the flat style theme).

    Activate paint mode, then select a color from the palette and click on the tabs you want to change:

    The colors displayed depend on the selected "Palette for Colored Tabs" which is a global setting and offers 3 choices (Standard, Pastel and Night Vision for dark themes).
  • [issue 101] If multiple categories are selected, closing QuickFolders settings reverts to "Show All".
  • [issue 88] Fixed highlighting of drop targets when dragging mails into a subfolder.

Improvements
  • [issue 82] Improved sorting of search results during quickMove / quickJump.
  • [issue 109] Menu item Mark Messages read in Folder + subfolders not displayed as expected - it was only shown if the folder of the tab didn't have unread emails itself. This additional menu item that can be used to set subfolders read was only displayed if the actual folder of the tab itself had no unread emails, and only child folders had them. Configure this command in QuickFolders settings / Advanced / Menu Configuration / Mail Commands
  • [issue 37] When no match is found using the "/" in quickMove box, display "No matching parent folders!" instead of "..."

Other Bug Fixes
  • [issue 101] If multiple categories are selected, closing QuickFolders settings reverts to "Show All".
  • [issue 107] Restoring general / layout Settings only works if option for restoring folders also active.
  • [issue 110] "Tab-specific Properties" overwrites To Address when clicking Write from Address Book.
  • [issue 112] Reading List menu - Add current Item not working.
  • [issue 114] Make QuickFolders compatible with Thunderbird beta 86.0b3
    - Removed grids from options screen to support Thunderbird 86 and higher. Without the fix, the dialog was displayed to wide and items on the support tab did not render correctly.
    - Using renamed function FtvItem for creating Recent folders list.

    If you find more regressions associated with Thunderbird 86 or higher, please report at issue 114 linked above.

Version 4.20 964.5 KiB Funktioniert mit Thunderbird 60.0 - 69.0

This release backports some of the fixes that were also done in the new version for Thunderbird 78. If you want to get the latest features, I highly recommend updating Thunderbird to the current 78 release version.

Bug Fixes
  • [issue 101] If multiple categories are selected, closing QuickFolders settings reverts to "Show All"
  • Fixed: When dragging mails on a subfolder item contained in a QuickFolders tab popup, the folder item is shown with an underline. But all child folders were also displayed underlined.
  • [issue 107] Restoring general / layout Settings only works if option for restoring folders also active.
  • [issue 92] do not apply "To address" from advanced tab propertiues when replying to an email!

Changes / Items worked
  • [issue 92] - do not apply To address from advanced tab properties when replying to an email!
  • [issue 94] - Tb78: Tab-specific properties displayed in incorrect screen position.
  • [issue 75] Support moving folders via quickMove button. You can now move one or multiple folders by dragging them from the tree to the quickMove button or hitting Shift+M (with a Pro License) while the folder tree is highlighted. Up until now, you could only move folders by holding Shift and dragging to a QuickFolders tab.
  • [issue 96] Drag'n'drop issue in Thunderbird 85 beta. Although I fixed this particular issue I make no guarantees for any functionality if you are using beta versions. I can only support the current ESR version Thunderbird 78.1 - 78.* fully.
  • [issue 23] Fixed: quickMove aborts with "Nothing to do: Message is already in folder" if the first mail in the selection is already in target folder. This may happen if you drag mails from a multi-folder view such as a search results window. It can also happen if you execute the quickMove command after a while and you (or a filter) have moved some of the mails to the target folder already.

Changes / Items worked
  • [issue 72] Category "_Uncategorized" will show all categories after moving a folder to another category
  • [issue 76]Recent Folders List is not updated until Thunderbird is restarted.
  • [issue 80] Recent Folders list not updated when moving email using drag and drop to the folder tree. I have made the updating of this folder time stamp somewhat more aggressive, but avoiding to add folders like Inbox, Sent, Archives, Drafts, Junk, Trash and Templates because they would always end up on top.
  • [issue 79] Drag over color + Dropmarkers when reordering Tabs not working
  • [issue 81] Current Folder Toolbar display - text is always black
  • [issue 84] Can't drag envelope icon in Navigation bar (a.k.a. Current Folder) to a folder / QuickFolder drop target. Also the Navigation Bar is hidden if multiple mails or a thread is selected.
  • Hide option to extend license if it is already more than 1 year into the future.
  • Hide popup screen for licensed users who have > 40 days left on their license
  • removed Encryption test code from options.js
  • validateFilterTargets moved to other module to avoid console errors.
  • Improve legibility of dropdown items in themed QuickFolders options dialog. Especially affects users of dark themes
  • In the dialog "change order of tabs" the Up and Down labels on the buttons were not rendered for some yet unknown reason - this is now worked around by removing the button styling from these elements

  • [issue 35] "Skip Unread Folder" hides "Add star" function...

    the Shortcut for skipping unread folders works even without pressing the Shift key
  • Reading list: jumping to a missing mail brings up a search dialog. The conditions were not automatically filled - this version fixes that
    in Thunderbird 68.12. I am not sure from which version forward this stopped working.
  • In the dialog "change order of tabs" the up and down labels on the buttons are not rendered for some reason - this is now worked around by removing the button styling from these elements
  • improve dropmarker behavior when dragging tabs over multiple rows
  • Thunderbird 78: QuickFolders is now also compatible with the new Thunderbird ESR

Changes / Items worked
  • Removed backwards compatible (shim) code and all code implementing cross-compatibiliy for SeaMonkey and Postbox. The code base had to be forked into a new branch, so if I backport bugfixes this will double my work for the legacy Thunderbird users.
  • [issue 35] "Skip Unread Folder" hides "Add star" function... the Shortcut for skipping unread folders works even without pressing the Shift key
  • New icon layout base on the new Photon Design System for Thunderbird. The fantastic new Icon conversion was kindly done by Richard Paenglab
  • Removed nsIRDFService dependencies
  • rewrote preference bindings in all dialogs
  • rewrote search algorithm for missing mails in reading list - clicking on a missing mail there brings up a search dialog. Unfortunately this was not populated with meaningful search conditions
  • Klaus Buecher (@Opto) did the initial conversion of all XUL interface and fixed some bugs. John Bieling (from the Thunderbird team) helped with the WindowLoader implementation and fixing the broken preferences. Many thanks to both of themn for their fantastic work!

Known issues
  • Any dragover styling (special color, dropmarkers when moving tabs around) is currently broken - this is caused by an experimental style selector which has been now removed by Mozilla due to little take-up of the HTML community. We will need to recode these parts using JavaScript.

Version 4.18.1 964.8 KiB Funktioniert mit Thunderbird 60.0 - 69.0

  • I have paid a developer to migrate all my Add-on support sites away from the free host on mozdev.org, which shall close operation within weeks. To keep having support sites and ongoing development, please buy a license (the migration has cost around $650 so far, which I hope to recover from the user community).

    I am also starting to rewrite all mail Add-ons as web extensions, which is currently not yet possible as all necessary APIs to replace the deprecated tech has not been implemented. As in between step I plan to release QuickFolders as a "web experiment" for Thunderbird 78+ but this will take a few weeks of work. If you are interested in using a version of QuickFolders that works with Thunderbird 78, buy a license to support the project.
  • IMPROVEMENT IN 4.18:[issue 27] Drag to Create New Subfolders from tab could create unexpected results, if the entered folder name contained spaces. The space (and possibly other non-ASCII characters, such as Umlauts / diacritics), would be url encoded (Space = %20) and could lead to failure of moving the mail or duplicated folders or non-working QuickFolders tabs.

    This problem was reported during the thunderbird 68.* release cycle so the fix may affect older versions of Thunderbird negatively. For user of older Thunderbird versions the behavior can be reverted by using the configuration setting: extensions.quickfolders.newFolderCallback.encodeURI = true
  • FIXED IN 4.18.1:<br>[issue 34] Option to make QuickFolders appear at the Bottom of Other Toolbars

    The new setting Advanced / QuickFolders Bar Position can be used to change the order of toolbars to push the QuickFolders bar further up / down in case other 3rd party toolbars are used. Set to 0 to have the toolbar at the top, 100 should work to push it below all other toolbars.

    The default is now set to make QuickFolders appear at the bottom of the mail tools again.

Version 4.18 1.1 MiB Funktioniert mit Thunderbird 60.0 - 69.0

  • I am currently paying somebody to migrate all my Add-on support sites away from the free host on mozdev.org, which is going to close operation end of June. To keep having support sites and ongoing development, please buy a license (the migration will cost around $500, so there are some expense I hope to recover from the user community).

  • [issue 3] Mark messages READ in folder and all its subfolders tree "in one click".

Version 4.17.4 Maintenance Version
  • Added Alt + [Up] as possible navigation shortcut to go to parent folder.
  • Extended Alt + [Left] and Alt + [Right] shortcuts to go to the next sibling folder if no QuickFolders tab is selected. If a visible QuickFolders tab is selected, then the next tab will be activated, as before - for these features the corresponding Keyboard Shortcuts choice on the QF General Options tab has to be activated.
  • Sometimes the current folder bar shows an incorrect subfolder menu (from a previously visited folder) - fixed by forcing it to rebuild every time a different folder is visited.
  • Removed unnecessary error console warning from simplified setElementStyle() function.


Version 4.17.3 Maintenance Version
  • [issue 14] Gray area shown below email list when starting Thunderbird in wide view with Current Folder Toolbar hidden.
  • [issue 15] Current Folder Bar background styling is ignored in Thunderbird 68

  • Improved label color for Renewal button
  • Completed translations for Spanish, French, Polish, Brazilian, Russian and Swedish users. If you have any suggestions for improvements please contact support or join the official translators team on Babelzilla


Version 4.17.2 Maintenance Version
  • [Issue 13] Thunderbird 68 regression: Cannot modify From and To addresses using Advanced Tab Properties.

Version 4.17.1 Maintenance Version
  • [Issue 11] Thunderbird 60 regression: in 4.17 - No results are shown in quickJump / quickMove when typing in Thunderbird 60.9; this s a regression caused by moving the search panel to a separate xul file (necessary for compatibility with Thunderbird 70, where search boxes are replaced by an new XUL element).
  • [Issue 9] Thunderbird 68 regression: when the shortcuts combinations SHIFT+S, SHIFT+M, SHIFT+J are used in the quick filter search field, they are accidentally executed and do not enter as uppercase letters in the search box as expected. This is caused by some input types have changed in Thunderbird 68 following deprecation of XUL elements.


Version 4.17 Release
  • [Bug 26703] Added option to hide mail commands popup menu. If acive, the QuickFolders commands menuy will only be shown when CTRL is pressed while clicking the tab.
  • [issue 7] Fixed: font color in striped mode ignored on colored tabs
  • [Bug 26683] Advanced tab property - Option to set dragged / moved emails to UNREAD.

Thunderbird 68 specific Fixes
  • Fixed: number fields are displayed too wide and with unnecessary paddings which may lead to legibility issues after preferences.css had to he removed.
  • [issue 8] in Thunderbird 70, the label is removed on right-clicking a tab. Also, the quickJump and quickMove functions stopped working.

    I highly recommend using the current release version Thunderbird 68.* and not a beta version on your daily mail profile as there will be many breaking changes in the next months. If you want to use beta versions, make sure to use a test profile and regularly back up your mail to avoid data loss.
  • The filter template dialog isn't shown properly in Thunderbird 68 - generally I would recommend to install the quickFilters Add-on instead, as it has more advanced functions for managing and creating mail filters.

    I highly recommend using the current release version Thunderbird 68.* and not a beta version on your daily mail profile as there will be many breaking changes in the next months. If you want to use beta versions, make sure to use a test profile and regularly back up your mail to avoid data loss.
  • The filter template dialog isn't shown properly in Thunderbird 68 - generally I would recommend to install the quickFilters Add-on instead, as it has more advanced functions for managing and creating mail filters.

  • [Bug 26671] Only one row of tabs after update to QuickFolders 4.15.1 - this can also lead to trailing tabs missing on screen.

    I had uploaded a fix in 4.15.2 but something rolleed back the code, so it's now officially fixed with version 4.15.3.

    The new backup / restore tool will also display tabs which have no valid folders. If you have problems with outdated tabs being shown, you may additionally want to execute the find orphaned tabs command.
  • Rounded out pt-br (Portuguese Brazilian) locale - thanks to Marcelo Ghelman

Version 4.15.1 1.0 MiB Funktioniert mit Thunderbird 60.0 - 73.0

Version 4.15.1
  • [Bug 24468] Added backup and restore functions on the QuickFolders Pro Tab.

Load Configuration will only load whatever option is selected.
  • [Bug 26670] Improved keyboard navigation: use Alt+[Down] for opening the QuickFolder Tab dropdown menu. This completes the shortcuts Alt+[Left] and Alt+[Right] for navigating to neighboring tabs.
  • Improved the behavior of the "Find orphaned Tabs" command. This now includes an option to reuse the answer (delete remaining faulty tabs - Yes / No) rather than clicking once for each invalid tab.
  • [Bug 26658] More ongoing changes to make compatible with latest Thundeerbird versions:
    • nsITreeBoxObject was deprecated - causing refresh of folder tree icons to fail
    • document.createElement deprecated - replaced with the new document.createXULelement

    • removed all instances of nsIPrefService.getCharPref(..)
    • known issue - in Thunderbird 69 the labels of the Tabs vanish when right-clicked. I will fix as soon as I knwo that it's a deprecation cause by XUL changes and not a regression in Thunderbird.

Version 4.15
  • [Bug 26658] ESR 2019 Readiness - compatibility with Thunderbird 68.

    Made QuickFolders compatible with Thunderbird 68 - part of the ongoing effort to future proof QuickFolders for 2020. For now, this also means making the minimum requirement using Thunderbird version 60.
  • Added lightweight theme support for current folder bar.

    For best result, select the "lighweight" option on the background dropdown on the Advanced tab. I also slimmed down the layout for retrieving some added vertical space. You can further tweak ergonomics of the central navigation panel by decreasing the "Left Spacer" value.
  • [Bug 26659] Advanced Tab Props - falsely always applies to subfolders.

    Setting From Identity or To To Address was always applied to all subfolders even if the option "[x] Also apply to subfolders" was not selected. From now on, this option will work.

  • Prepared code base for compatibility with Thunderbird 66 - this will be released as a separate version because it is currently impossible to release a version that is compatible with Thunderbird 60.

I am planning to release a first tryout version of QuickFolders for Thunderbird 64-66 in the beginning of May; it will likely have the same feature set as the current verision (4.14.1) - I am also working on converting my other Add-ons, quickFilters and SmartTemplate⁴.

    When a folder is moved from one tree location to another in a synchronised IMAP account, the folder location (URL) is not updated in the QuickFolders Tab pointing to the moved folder.

  • Show the "already have a license" button on the registration screen when the license key is expired.

  • Support deleting multiple Categories from Category box. please only select Categories you have defined yourself - you cannot select the built in categoires (Always / Never / Uncategorized) in a multiple selection.
  • When deleting *all* user defined categories, the categories box was not hidden. I wrote a tidy up routine that resets any tab that may lead to this problem (remove Show Always category from all tabs)
