About this Add-on
This extension adds an extra toolbar to Thunderbird. When you drag a mail folder to it, you get a fully customizable shortcut to that mail folder. This supports full drag and drop, like the corresponding folder in the folder tree - You can drag messages on it to move/copy them to the folder, and access the bookmarked folders through keyboard shortcuts.
This is handy when you have a large tree of folders for clients or projects, but use only a few of them at the same time.
The quickMove / quickJump feature allows you to jump to any folder with a few keystrokes, including child folders using the "slash" feature. You can even create new folders while moving mail in order to expand an existing folder hierarchy.
The Category feature adds more usability by adding distinct areas to work in; this can make it easier to focus on a task that needs just a subset of the folders visible. There is also excellent integration with the Thunderbird tabbed interface provided since Thunderbird version 3.
Thunderbird 102 users:
The latest version of QuickFolders, v5.12.1 is fully compatible with Thunderbird 102. If you are having problem after upgrading from an older version of Thunderbird, you can force reinstalling by removing the extension first, without losing your settings - see the top of the latest version history for detailed instructions.
Thunderbird 68 support has ended on thunderbird.net
Unfortunately thunderbird.net does not accept updates for legacy versions anymore - they only support the new "Mail extension" format and our "mail extension with experimental APIs" which is a workaround for missing advanced features.
From of version 4.23 forward you have to install such legacy versions from the github releases page
Originally QuickFolders was released in 2008 by Alexander Malfait. Various people helped on Babelzill.org with localisation, at the moment I am doing this mostly on my own using google translate. Opto (Klaus Buecher) helped with the conversion for Thunderbird 78 to be compatible with the new experimental mail extensions model. TbSync also helped with Code and Paenglab with CSS styles and converting icons. Thanks to all who have participated.

Please note that QuickFolders is compatible with the latest version of Thunderbird (102.6.1) - if you get a message that says otherwise after updating from earlier versions (e.g. Tb91) or if QuickFolders cannot be enabled with the blue slider, simply remove it and reinstall it via "Find more Add-ons" search box on the Extensions tab of Add-ons Manager.
will not trigger quickFilters assistant multiple times anymore when dropping multiple mails to a tab.
A regression in v5.15 caused all text in popup menus (subfolders / commands) to appear missing for most users. This was because of the default size of 0 being falsely applied as a literal value. [issue 333]
The quickFilters assistant was triggered multiple times when dropping multiple mails to tab or multiple mails are moved using quickMove. This new version will move emails together, as long as they come from an identical source folder. This should prevent multiple assistant windows in the majority of use cases. [issue 335]
- [issue 315] Remove the term 'Orphaned Tabs' in all User Interface texts
- Modifications to internal code for triggering the quickFilters filter assistant to avoid "monkey patching" (overwriting) Thunderbird internal functions. These changes are needed from the next version of quickFilters (5.7 and higher) onwards to avoid duplicate prompts for filter creation.
- Set max version to Thunderbird 108 for users of beta version.
- [issue 328] Fixed: Using quickMove to move emails from different source folders didn't remove them from the menu
- [issue 329] Fixed inconsistent menu font size when dragging mail to a subfolders of a QuickFolder
- [issue 333] 5.15.1 A regression caused all text in popup menus (subfolders / commands) to appear missing for most users. This was because of the default size of 0 being falsely applied as a literal value.
