I have been looking for such an addon for way too long. It provides the perfect combination of additional safety and easy to use options.

Thanks so much!

Great add-on, very useful.

Thanks for improving Thunderbird usage.

I have a question about this add-ons future. Are there any plans to make it restartless? I'm asking, because it seems future Thunderbird builds (like the current Tb64 beta) will only accept restartless add-ons.

Heute gibt's eine korrekte Bewertung. Vielen Dank an den Entwickler für die sehr schnelle Reaktion!

Das Add-on ist super und steigert die Sicherheit beim Abrufen von E-Mails, da HTML und JavaScript deaktiviert und lediglich bei Bedarf aktiviert werden kann.

Vielen Dank!

Very useful, many thanks!

It would be great if in addition to the button you could also use a keystroke, for example the letter "H" to activate the function.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.1). 

With the key combination Ctrl + Alt + F5 you call the function of the button (the function depends on the options). Simpler keyboard shortcuts are already used by Thunderbird itself.

J'ai toujours eu l’habitude d'afficher tous mes courriels en format brut, plus simple à lire car tous ont alors la même forme. Malheureusement, certains contacts envois des courriels exclusivement en HTML, ou ajoute tellement de mise en page que ça devient difficile à lire en brut : C'est là que cette extension intervient ! Plus pratique que passer par le menu affichage et commuter entre les deux modes d'affichages pour mettre en HTML, puis remettre en brut, l'extension nous permet de changer en un clic, puis se remet automatiquement en brut dès que l'on lit un nouveau courriel.

Thanks a lot for this add-on. Exactly what I searched for!

One thing is missing. Additionally to the "Show HTML" button it would be nice if there were also a "Show Simple HTML" button. This is, because in most situation where "plain text" ist not sufficient to read a mail, "Simple HTML" does the trick with no need for "Full HTML"

Again: Thanks for this very useful add-on

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.7.4). 

Simple HTML (And other options) can now be set as button function in the addon options dialog

1. "The button in main tollbar has to be added by customizing the toolbar"
2. "The button in message header pane has to be added by customizing this toolbar."

#1 here above can be added, #2 can not, no View HTML button found in the compose window. Is this a bug? Win 8.1, Thunderbird 45.0

Follow-up: I stand corrected. I mixed up message window with compose window. Sorry, I am very new to Thunderbird (2 weeks). The addon works, but this was either way not what I hoped the addon would do.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.7.4). 

There has never been a button in compose window. This addon and its buttons are thought for reading messages - not composing.

Hallo,

Allow HTML leistet mir gute Dieste, allerdings ist mir folgendes aufgefallen:

Wenn ich eine HTML-formatierte Nachricht verfasst habe und als Kopie im Ordner gesendet abgelegt habe, dann kann ich mir diese Nachricht mit dem HTML-Button ja ohne großen Aufwand in HTML-Darstellung ansehen, auch wenn Reintext als Standard-Ansicht ausgewählt ist. So weit - so gut.

Wenn ich diese Nachricht aber an einen weiteren Empfänger versenden will und dazu auf 'Weiterleiten' klicke, dann wird aus der HTML-Darstellung eine Reintext-Mail gemacht.

Warum?

Habe ich etwas falsch gemacht oder ist das eine Funktionslücke des AddOns?

Ich muß beim Weiterleiten trotz des installierten AddOns jedesmal erst die Nachrichtenansicht manuell im Menü auf HTML umstellen, bevor ich eine Nachricht im ursprünglichen Format weiterleiten kann.

Trotzdem Danke, daß es dieses Tool gibt :-))

it would be fantastic if I could push the button and then forward or print an html-mail as such (upon printing or forwarding thunderbird falls back to text-only).

My default is plain text mails. Because many others often send html mails, this add-on is very useful to view them without changing my default reading style. To load the remote contents, you've still to click on "show remote content", which requires another click on a different location on screen.

Since the merger between Thunderbird and Thunderbird esr (24.2.0) and up I miss the message header button of this add-on, only the other tool bar buttons are available to me yet.

I've been using it for a couple years now, and it always works as expected.I would like to see a feature added to it where it would automatically show emails in html from a particular email address, maybe some a kind of white-listing capability for the few email addresses I would manually add to the white-list.

Although its way of funcion might be a little hard to understand at first by newbies, once taken the learning curve it reveals as utterly useful and practical. Especially the indicator on the status bar that shows which is your default setting and allows you to change it through right click action. Nothing is missed here. Thank you

Simply excellent -- great way to stop scripts and other malware. Twice incoming emails from trusted users -- which looked suspicious and I did NOT click on any links in them -- twice viewing them messed up my T-bird settings (in LINUX!) Tthis extension makes it so convenient to preview email in plain text, determine if the message is legit, then view in HTML with one somple click. Kudos! If you manage to get "allow HTML" to "stick" to approved messages permanently, so much the better!

I have been looking for a way to strip HTML tags from quotes when replying and this addon is the closest thing I've found. I can view ALL my mail in plain or simple mode and then hit this button to see normal email when needed. When I press Reply, the quoted message is stripped and I am still able to use my HTML signature because I am composing in HTML mode by default. I wish I could view in HTML mode and reply with stripped plain text quotes, but oh well.

This is really nice. What's missing is some indicator whether an email uses HTML. That indicator could be a small symbol that appears in the header bar or in the status bar (e.g. together with the "Allow HTML" symbol), every time an email has an HTML part. Often it is not possible to tell whether an email uses HTML or not. I believe that's what also "Apedemak" meant in his comment below (from Jan 2010). (BTW, an old email client, "Foxmail", used such an indicator)

Edit May 14th:
Maybe, simply by not displaying this add-on's changing icon in the status bar, whenever a message is in plain text, would be enough to indicate that a message has no html part. I keep finding myself clicking on the html option in the status bar while some messages just don't have html.

Useful add-on. Unfortunately when an e-mail is opened in a new tab, and then switch between tabs, the HTML status isn't remembered, which is quite annoying.

This is a useful tool that makes it easier to keep HTML off and thereby protect oneself from various forms of spyware. But I'd like to see better integration with TB's junk filtering and untrusted image loading features. If junk detection declares an email as a false positive, you should be able to (1) declare it not junk, (2) download images, and (3) view as HTML in one click. Instead, right now you have to do each thing separately. I realize some won't want to do this, but I'd like this add-on to have the option of doing all three steps at once.
