Installs and works in TB 60 if you first open Tools/Options/Advanced/General/Config. editor and double-click the preference extensions.strictCompatibility to false, OK to close Options.


Thanks, I already have that option set. And I just realized it's already built into TB: Options > Display > Advanced.

There are a couple more; I'll post about them separately.

@siffemoz

The Close On Reply extension should work.

The New Mail Attention extension needs a fix.

Please test the extension before asking for a fix.

I looked at Close On Reply a while ago, and it works for messages in tabs, but not in windows.

Deselect on Delete works for messages viewed in the Message Pane; the Display setting does not apply to that case.

@siffemoz

Are you saying the Close On Reply extension works differently in Thunderbird 52?

If the mail.openMessageBehavior pref is equal to 2, then the tab closes when you reply to a message.

If the mail.openMessageBehavior pref is not equal to 2, then the window closes when you reply to a message.

The mail.openMessageBehavior pref behavior...

0 - open a message using enter or double click in a new window
1 - open a message using enter or double click in an existing window
2 - open a message using enter or double click in a new tab (default)

I got the Minimize On Start and Close extension working correctly in Thunderbird 60.

It looks like there is a bug in Thunderbird 60. The close event doesn't fire and that breaks the minimize on close feature. A workaround is to switch the close event for the DOMWindowClose event.

Close Event
http://developer.mozilla.org/docs/Mozilla/Tech/XUL/Events/close_event

DOMWindowClose Event
http://developer.mozilla.org/docs/Web/Events/DOMWindowClose

Fix:

* install.rdf

Code: Select all
- <em:version>1.3.2.1-signed.1-signed</em:version>
+ <em:version>1.3.2.2</em:version>

Code: Select all
- <em:maxVersion>3.2a1pre</em:maxVersion>
+ <em:maxVersion>60.*</em:maxVersion>

* chrome\content\moscFunc.js

Code: Select all
- window.addEventListener("close", mosc_480adee0.minimizeOnClose, false);
+ window.addEventListener("DOMWindowClose", mosc_480adee0.minimizeOnClose, false);

* chrome\content\options.xul

Code: Select all
  <?xml-stylesheet href="chrome://global/skin/" type="text/css"?>
+ <?xml-stylesheet href="chrome://messenger/skin/preferences/preferences.css" type="text/css"?>

Minimize On Start and Close

Hello!
I'm new here and I'm looking for a working version of minimize on start and close for Thunderbird v.60.x.
I've read at the Thunderbird addon-page of a version 1.3.2.2. I hope you can help. Thanks in advance...

Quote colors does not work on 60.4.0 even after setting extensions.strictCompatibility to FALSE. Also for some weird reason, the Google Tasks Sync has switched from the right side to the left side of the window, and there's no way to put it back. If I click on Tools-Add-on setup, then the program freezes. I share the frustration of many users - how come an update does not assure backward compatibility? If an update comes at the cost of breaking a major part of the software's functionality, then people will just stop updating. At least as far as I'm concerned, I regret it, and once I get things fixed, I will never update again to a new version. (I'm amazed by some of the suggestions in this thread, such as "contact the add-on developer" -really...?! Is this what end users are supposed to do...?)

@kolorado

Are you saying the fix for Quote Colors doesn't work?

If the extension is being actively maintained, then I suggest you ask for help on the support site. And yes that is what end users are supposed to do.

Beside morat's fix for Quote Colors, there is a method that uses the userContent.css file in the chrome folder:

https://userstyles.org/styles/1752/quot ... hunderbird

That should work in any version of TB.
