Hi,

I had some addons in the older version that do not seem to work in the 6.0 version. I know they are trivial but they helped a lot.

I need an addon that will create a capital at the beginning of a new sentence. I had autoup but it no longer works.

I also had a button for return receipts that allowed for quick setting instead of going to Options and pressing return receipt.

also morefunctions addressbook.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Robert

Reason: replaced 6.0 with 60 in title to help people find this info later on

It's likely some older extensions will no longer be available for version 60 and above. Others may be updated by their authors to make them compatible if the required APIs are available in the base code.

Thanks for the reply. I do not necessarily need the exact addons. Is there something similar that \i can download ?

Do a search.

Either from within Thunderbird using the "Find more extensions" search box in Tools > Add-ons > Extension tab or from the web site.

All three add-ons work here in TB 60.3. The trick is to change the preference extensions.strictCompatibility to false in Tools/Options/Advanced/General/Config. editor (double-click a pref. to toggle its value). Then, download the xpi file and install in Tools/Add-ons/Extensions. For the Return Receipt button, download a toolbar xpi from https://codefisher.org/toolbar_button/t ... messenger/ Once installed, the button can be added to the Composition Toolbar via View/Toolbars/Customize.

I think the following extension is broken in Thunderbird 60.

Return Receipt

The gComposeRecyclingListener object is not defined.
