@Dave
you need to drag it and drop from Options --> Toolbar Layout to toolbar.

Toolbar button does its job, TB 60.3.3

4 stars based on hope.
Installed Folder Filters Button 1.4 with Thunderbird 60, restarted TBird. "Run Filters on Folders" does not show up on Tools menu.
I need this add-on to work.

It would be possible to change the icon to have it as the Thunderbird 60 theme?

Thank you

Any plans on migrating this to Thunderbird 60?

Submitted for review. If no issues found, it should be available in the next few days.

I'm writing this to confirm that the plugin still works fine under Thunderbird 52. Although you do have to install it manually for now.

This extension works exactly as needed, even works without problems in seamonkey (after converting it in the http://addonconverter.fotokraina.com/ converter).

It would be possible to add an item to the context menu of the mail folder (as it does, for example, addon "Remove Duplicate Messages (Alternate)")?

It doesn't work on Saved Search (Virtual) Folders. I've created virtual folders which aggregate all inbox, sent, drafts, spam and trash folders from all my 13 IMAP accounts. It's very useful, since I can see eg. all sent messages in a single view. I hoped this extension would work on virtual folders, but it doesn't. Can something be done about it?

Hello,
I'm sorry it doesn't work for you...
Just to clarify, this plugin is just a simple wrapper to the execute the "Run Filters on Folders" from Tools menu.
If you manually go to Tools menu and click on the "Run Filters on Folders", does it work?
I have never used it for saved search folders, and maybe, just maybe this functionality does not work for virtual folders.

This is a BIG timesaver for me - VERY glad to see it working again in Tbird 42.0

I thought it wasn't working when I was trying to run it while viewing a message in the Unified Inbox. So it's motivated me to try a workflow using this setting: Menu > Folders > All.

Thank you for this add-on, which does exactly what it should.
The screen shot provided here confused me for a second since it not only shows the button of this add-on, but also that of your other add-on. I’d recommend either making separate screen shots or at least clarify in the caption what’s shown here.

Hello everyone,
This does not work for me.
I'm on the 24.6.0 release of TB. When I click on the yellow button "Run filter on folders" > nothing happens. No menu appears, no bar or any form to filter my folders.
There's there something I did not understand?
Can you help me?
Sorry for my english, I'm French.

Hey Epseud,

Sorry to hear that...
Let's get back to understand how this plugin works....

As the description say...
[This is] "Just a very simple add-on that adds a toolbar button to execute the "Run Filters on Folders" from Tools menu."

What it means is that this is just a button that you can add to your toolbar that will perform the same action as if you would click on the Tools menu and then "Run Filters on Folders".

The most important thing, I guess, is that you have to have some filters defined for folders in your Inbox.

If you have them, and they work when you go through the Tools menu, but do not work when you use the button, please let me know and I can investigate further.

Thanks,
Chris

This works very well and is very useful.
I have 2 feature requests:
1 - could it be possible to apply the filter to the subfolders? I have an archive dating back to 1998; per year/per month. It would be great to apply a filter to all of these folders.
2 - is there a possibility to have a button instead of the option in tools? That would make it so much easier.
But thanks for the nice work anyway.

Hey topsoftbe,
Thanks for the review...
As for the requests...
#1 I would have to look into it, as it's been quite some time since I have developed this extension.
#2 - I'm not sure if I understand... this extension IS the button... all you have to do is to right click on the mail toolbar and customize it. The Folder Filters Button will be there. You cab then just drag it to the toolbar.

Very userful addon. If there is a shortcut key it will be more helpful

Works like a charm. Would you please make a monochrome version icon? Ubuntu users would prefer a black-white icon.

Hi,
Could this work with specific folders? I have already created filters on all sent folders and would like to run all with one click? Would this be possible?
thanks

UPDATE: Thanks for responding, Chris. I've got it working now. I tried running the command via the tools menu and it still didn't work. So, I deleted and recreated the filter in question and it worked right away. I don't know what the issue was, but all is well now. Changing my review to 5 stars, as this seems to be some sort of random Thunderbird glitch, not related to your add-on. Thanks for following up!

I'm afraid it didn't work for me. Running Thunderbird v13 on Windows Vista. Clicking button does nothing. No error messages. I'll be happy to revise this review if I can get it to work; it's a neat idea.

Im sorry to hear it doesn't work for you.
I have tested it on many different platform and did not have any issues.
It is very strange that is does not work for you, as all this plugin does, it is the same as clicking on the tools menu and run filters on folder.
Do your filters work fine when run via the tools menu?

Have a good one,
Chris

Took me a second to find the button, but now that I have it added- it's awesome!

My only request would be to add the option of filtering subfolders, which I'm sure you've heard before. Add that feature and you'd have a million adoring customers!
