In waiting for a new version for TB 68.2, I'am using Norm's ported version. It works very well on my TB 68.2.

I miss this soooo much!!!
I'm holding off upgrading Thunderbird across our entire fleet because of the compatibility change (just upgraded mine), and am considering downgrading Thunderbird again so I can have Close tab on Esc working again.
Is there anything we can do to help you get this add-on working on 68?

Hi David

I am hoping you can update this very useful add-on in the very near future. I am missing it very much.

Ich habe das Add-on sehr gerne und wirklich problemlos genutzt. Jetzt fehlt es mir seit TB 68.
Schade.

David,

Please update this great add-on to TB 68.1.0

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent add-on that complements behaviour that should have been default in Thunderbird. I have been using it for years and would not like to live without it.

I completely agree with @Firefox user 0151e9 request: please update to be compatible with Thunderbird 68.x.

This is a must have for all TB users. Please update it to TB 68.

works excellent with TB up to TB60.

After updating to TB64 beta (out since October 26) the add-on stops working. See: https://support.mozilla.org/de/kb/unable-install-add-on-extension-theme-thunderbird
I've manually changed maxVersion to "64.*" with no success. There must be other changes neccessary.

It works. So it was worth the time spent with writing the code. Pls tell me which language you use to write it (am interested in tech stuff). Thanks again & Regards M.

I just updated from Thunderbird 2.x to 45.x and was disappointed when esc to close a message stopped working, so this addon is a real godsend

Thx for your feedback!

How about an extra facility to close all open tabs on exiting Thunderbird?

This is so that when I open Thunderbird it doesn't open old tabs.

A tick-box in the interface could activate it. I don't see this facility in any other addon on the net.

What do you think?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.0.6). 

I added this function to the next version. Please go to the addon preferences to enable this behaviour after the addon has been updated to version 0.0.7.

Like so many other users, I am used to hitting the ESC key to close an email. Thanks to this great add-on I can now do it in Thunderbird. I was using Thunderbird off and on over the past several years, but mostly using Microsoft Live Mail, but I have been having issues with live mail, so I will be using Thunderbird exclusively.

Thank you!

My favorite/most useful Thunderbird extension!

I had reason to move to Postbox almost a year ago, and I still have not adjusted to the loss of Close-Tab-On-Esc functionality. (Like another reviewer, I have also been a longtime Outlook and Noes user).

Please consider porting this to Postbox!

Just Perfect!
As a heavy users of both Outlook and Lotus Notes at work, escape to close an email is now almost part of my DNA. It was my biggest gripe with using Thunderbird for personal use.
This add-in bring back the simple joy of "things just working right"
Thanks a mill to the developer!

Thank you so much for this file. Works perfect. I spent way too much time trying to map the keyboard to replace Cntrl+F4 with the escape key, but could not figure out KEYCONFIG add on. This app save me a lot of time, frustration, and is a must have for keyboard intensive people.

Brings back old behaviour of Thunderbird 2.0.0.24 and makes live much easier.

Giving only four stars though, because pressing Escape not only closes the message window but does also reset quick filter (if string had been entered in quick search form before) or hide quick filter bar (if currently no string in search form).

I fixed this in my installation of the add-on by adding the following line after line 20 in file "messenger-overlay.js":
e.preventDefault();

I hope the author will also apply this simple one-line-patch patch in the near future to make it available even to those who do not know how to alter the installation files.

New version is on its way :)

Excellent add-on if you want like me to be able to close emails with ESC. Just one request to make it even better: when you hit ESC and got back to the mailbox, any quick filter that was set disappears. It would be good to preserve it. Thanks a lot!
