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;

- fast links for replying (and possibly other useful actions).

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 "firstname.lastname@example.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.
