Very useful addition. I'm waiting for a new version for the latest TB 60. *
Please do update.

Good addition. I want to continue in versions 60+, or do something similar in the next basic version.

Significantly reduces memory usage in Windows by pushing the browser to "Background Process".

Which is good enough and highly appreciated .

This works great with Thunderbird 52.6.0 on Linux (Manjaro, Gnome 3.26)!

I know this addon has been discontinued by its author... but please somebody port FireTray to Thunderbird 57+!

The addon is just great but doesn't work on Ubuntu 17.10 + KDE/Plasma + Thunderbird 57.0b2

Sometimes when I click the tray icon to maximize Thunderbird, I see the window in the taskbar but not the window itself. it must be because Firetray maximizes the window but doesn't make it active so it would get to the forefront. Please fix this.

This plugin is awsome

Click on the Download Anyway button. Get the file. Open the file with your favorite Zip program. Edit the file install.rdf. Find the Thunderbird maxVersion: 38 and change it to a number higher than the current version.

For example I changed it to 58. Update the archive. Go to your addons tab, and click on the wheel and select install Addon from a file. Done. The installation starts and works.

.. and one feature I'm sorely missing is to have the the active window come to the front when toggling from tray (on windows 7).

- Open Thunderbird
- Minimize TB to tray
- Open any other Program and maximize window
- Restore TB from tray.

= Thunderbird window has focus but remains invisible in the background

Other than that, great tool and imho should be core functionality

This was the most perfect tray addon that I used. It's a pity the project discontinued... Please don't abandon the project as we still need you!

It's absolutely a FANTASTIC addon for Thunderbird, works fine on Windows 7 and Ubuntu MATE (finally we have the email notify into the panel). God bless the developer, thank you!
