With Thunderbird 68 just use RBTray.
It's a small Windows open source program that runs in the background and allows almost any window to be minimized to the system tray by right clicking its minimize button.

Tried it and works perfectly and only takes 2 mb memory.

Please update for the latest Thunderbird,
since the developers are too stubborn to integrate it (and at the same time make it more difficult for addon creators).

Great addon! Use it for a long time.

Doesn't work on Thunderbird 68, please update.

Pourriez-vous porter cette extenssion ou une extenssion similaire sur TB 68 s'il vous plait ? Celle-ci, en l'état actuel, ne fonctionne plus sur la dernière version de TB. Merci d'avance.

PLEASE make it work with the new Thunderbird 68!

I'de be happy to donate if you provide something like a paypal link. Couldn't find anything like this on the github page.

Hope the Thunderbird developers will include this feature natively. This is a must-have for any Email client.

Does not work with version 68

It works fine, but I would love to see one additional function - choosing my custom icon (PNG). All my panel icons are monochrome, so the default Thunderbird one looks very out of place now.

The extension works as advertised, with one major detractor. You can not send emails with the extension installed.

Thanks a lot! I have missed this functionality so much and wish it would work for Firefox, too.

Finally!

I had to use a ridiculous solution with Windows tasks to make sure I still see new mails after closing Thunderbird.
I'm glad I can use this plugin again.

Possible use with TB68b5?

Thanks for reanimating this nice little Feature Addon

You only have to switch the Thunderbird Shortcut or Startup Shortcut to "start minimized" and everything works fine.

Dear developer, please add number of unread leters to tray icon

Well, the addon does as it says. If you minimize the window, it iconifies to the system tray.

The main problem is it needs to be reinstalled on each TB start, as it says it isn't installed, so an installation wizard appears, a TB restart is required and then, after two TB initializations, the addon works... until the next TB shudown. (Arch Linux Plasma)

Its pretty annoying for me restarting TB twice in order to make this work as I have to put my master password each time I start TB.

Besides the bug, it would be great some configuration options, like let the users specify if they want a single click, double click, or middle click to trigger the event, or let the tray icon visible even if the window is not minimized, so we don't need to search on the taskbar where TB is, and we can easily bring to front TB

Hi,

Add-On works most time like expected. Think there is one bug. If I change the Settings to open a mail in new Window not in new tab, the Window could not be closed, it minimizes also to trayicon. Full stars after correction ;-)
