I have used this handy Add-On for several years through several versions of Thunderbird and several releases of this Add-On. Unfortunately though the latest release (4.0.1) does not appear to be functioning properly with Thunderbird 78.5.1 (64-bit). I have lost the arrow to scroll through the various panes. The pull down menu is there to select the folder view , but I think that may be standard in Thunderbird (been so long using Folder Pane View Switcher that I do not know what is standard).. The arrows were the key functionality of this Add-On and I am sad they are no longer there. Hopefully this will be fixed in a future release (or perhaps there is another fix for this?). Yes, I have checked the Options box for "Show Folder Pane Arrows".
EDIT: The Folder arrows do appear when I go to the Add-On through the Add-On manager (under Tools), then click the link to the Add-on, then click +Add to Thunderbird. The arrows are there until I exit Thunderbird. When I restart it, they are gone again.
Issue still exists in Thunderbird v78.6.0 and 78.6.1 (64-bit) and v78.7.1 (64-bit).

Ein fast perfektes Add-on. Fast, weil auf dem Mac (macOS "Big Sur") das Add-on nicht mehr angezeigt wird, nachdem Thunderbird unvollständig beendet wurde (roter Punkt ganz links oben). Um das Add-on wieder anzuzeigen, muss Thunderbird erst vollständig beendet werden, z.B. über das Anwendungsmenü oder die Menüleiste des Mac.

Une extension vraiment très utile lorsque que l'on utilise de nombreux comptes de courriel. Parfait pour avoir un aperçu des différents dossiers non lus très rapidement !
Je recommande chaudement cette extension ! On ne peut plus s'en passer ensuite.

I am very glad that this add-on was ported to the 78 Thunderbird. I organize my emails by correspondents, and over the years they have add up. Just clicking the right arrow to view only the new, unread messages is great. Thunderbird itself has a dropdown box to do so, but Folder Pane Switcher is much, much easier to use. Very recommended!

Why does this very simple add-on ask permission for "full, unrestricted access to Thunderbird and your computer" ?

Because the permissions model in Thunderbird is poor and it doesn't have enough supported add-on APIs to implement the functionality of this add-on without embedding an "experimental" API in it and the indicated permission is required whenever an "experimental" API is included in an add-on.

Very, very, very useful add-on. I realised that it is a must-have only when I installed it because I was curious. Thanks a lot!

Very useful addon and I use it all the time. Very happy to donate to the developer and support continued development. And 'Firefox user 1c344b' who complained about the popup - the developer does this for nothing and I am happy to be told it needed support. Freeware developers give up their private time to help the community but they need paying from time to time. A large amount of people contributing a small amount makes all the difference.

I use a ton of folders between my 10+ mail accounts. This is great for switching between my 30+ favorite folders, unread mail and all folders. I hated having to go to view->folders-> and select unread, favorites or all. The arrows on the pane view switcher are perfect. I've give this 10 stars if I could.

Testing 1.12beta2 with Thunderbird 52.4.0 (64-bit) on FreeBSD-CURRENT.

Nice! I had forgotten that the views existed.

You rated the add-on 4 out of 5 stars, but you didn't indicate any problem or suggestion that you'd like to see addressed. Help a guy out, tell me what the problem is. I may or may not be able to address it, but I'd like to know. ;-)

That's easier than I thought it would be. ;-) I'll try to find some time in the next few weeks to add the buttons back to Folder Pane View Switcher.

I can get the toolbar to show up by following the instructions in a previous response " If the view switcher isn't in the toolbar when you enable it, then right-click on the toolbar, select "Customize...", and add the "Folder Views" tool from the palette"

However that comes up is the standard pull-down list which allows you to switch with 2 clicks. I cannot get the add-on to work as before.

Any ideas?

UPDATE: The arrows are back in this beta release:

Original response:

As it says at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/folder-pane-view-switcher/, the arrows are gone and at this time there is no way to get them back. The change was out of my control and I don't like it any more than you do.

This is an absolutely must have brilliant add-on. Unfortunately since updating to the latest version of Thunderbird (52.0.1), the Arrows to control which Folder Pane is viewed have disappeared.

I used this add-on all the time, but it seems broken since my update to Thunderbird 52 on Fedora. Using Thunderbird without this add-on is barely acceptable for my since I used the arrows all the time to quickly switch between view. Going to the menu is so devious.

could be a 6star add-on, if there were a checkbox list in the preferences where you can select what folder views you want to switch between

so it is a 5star add-on because it just makes what it is and promises ... and that reliable and easy

It almost solves the problem to quickly switch between your, unread, Favorite and All folders instead of going to View / Folder options.

This is something better version. but hope in future the favorite folders just stay on top rather switching and choosing options

Good job, nice functionality :-)

It would still be great if it was possible to select which folder views you want to see in the folder pane !
