Yes, it's working fine now, thanks for the heads-up!

In retrospect it may have been user error, you have to drag the new button to a position between the others, it won't drop to the left.

Confirmed in release candidate testing, but I had no problem installing the extension from ATN.

Yes, you are both right.

I am currently not developing the addon, because it is not clear, how it should work with classical XUL addons phased out in the next major release of Thunderbird. I am not even sure, that the message/header panes stay the way they are or if they are rewritten using HTML.

I have changed the settings on ATN, so the addon cannot be installed from within Thunderbird newer than 69.0a1.

https://developer.thunderbird.net/add-ons/tb78

If its not worth the effort to convert to a MailExtension or a web extension experiment due to the uncertainty/lack of information it would help if you made that more publicly known on either the tb-planning mailing list or the Add-on Developers topicbox.

I did post a message on the tb-planning mailing list, but at least from the core developers, there doesn't seem to be a large interest in doing anything about this. There was also no answer about any plans about the message headers in general.

Hi jmozmoz,

I have seen that you have successfully updated some of your other add-ons for TB78 using my WindowListener API. Is there anything I can do to support you in getting CompactHeader ready for TB78? I would love to see that live on!

Thanks for your contributions,
John

a working alternative for thunderbird 78 may be this https://addons.thunderbird.net/it/thund ... t-headers/
with this https://addons.thunderbird.net/it/thund ... customize/ for the icons.

Would love to see this functionality just get into the Thunderbird itself. Short of that, if this extension/addon can be made in English, that would be helpful also.

Same with the "Lookout" extension/addon.

Thanks.

Hello!

Xubuntu 20.04
Thunderbird 68.10.0
CompactHeader 3.0.0beta5

RSS-account in Thunderbird

RSS http://rss.dw.de/xml/rss-ru-news

Page from news-message:

When all headers of message open - I click link - and it opened in browser - OK.

When headers close (by this add-on) and I can see message-subject as link - I click link - and in browser see error 404 and in browser-address-bar I see:

https://www.dw.com/ru/A?%3E@BA%3C5=K-?%3E?@%3EA8;8-%3C%3E:-%3EAB0=%3E28BL-D8=0=A8@%3E20=85-=%3E:-15;0@CA8/a-55181602?maca=rus-rss-ru-news-4383-xml-mrss

I do something wrong or it is a bug?
