GMail Conversation View

This extension improves the threaded summary for emails in Thunderbird 3.0. It vastly improves the UI by including some ideas from GMail. More specifically:

  • your own messages are displayed in the thread;
  • you initially see summaries, they can be expanded to display full messages;
  • quoted sections are collapsed à la GMail;
  • fast links for replying (and possibly other useful actions).

For screenshots and a stable version, please head to AMO which should provide you with a ready-to-install package.

INSTALL

My setup is based on Linux, it's been known to work fine on Mac too. If you want to build the .xpi, just run:

make package

If you want to develop and see your changes in real-time (assuming you have a proper setup in your profile and you restart Thunderbird), the best way to do that is for you to create an empty file called "gconversation@xulforum.org" in the extensions/ directory. This file should only contain one line which is the path to the folder contaning the source code on your hard drive.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
