Update Thunderbird and lost 11 out of 13 add ons

Размещено

Hello

I updated from version 60.? to 68.2 tonight and 11 out of my 13 add ons no longer work (legacies)

I've said it before but TB updates are getting to be as problematic as Window updates.

Don't the idiot developers understand why this is not acceptable? I can barely use Thunderbird tonight.

TB may be free but I make voluntary contributions to Mozilla but not for this shit.

Continue like this and very few people will bother to write add-ons for TB and very few people will bother to install them either.

TB say that updates have improvements but it's one step forward and 11 steps back tonight for me.

Can a volunteer answer this please and pass it on to development?

Thanks

Hello Matt

It is very difficult to know the exact relationship of TB and Thunderbird when the support forum for TB has Support moz://a on the right and you yourself say things like "The changed that Thunderbird 68 brought in the shared code from Mozilla left no alternative...."

Anyway, I agree with your assessment of eM Client. It imported all my email accounts from TB without a hitch but is lacking most features that TB add-ons provided.

Regards

I also have this problem where I have lost all the add-ons I was using for reporting spam stopped working after the update and I'm unable to find any replacements for them. Even disabling extensions.strictCompatibility doesn't work like it is ignoring that boolean.

It has been a point of notw in just about every document released about this Thunderbird release, and to a lesser extent 60 that add-on that were not actively maintained and updated would not work in new versions. So the boolean is not only ignored, it is no longer relevant as Thunderbird transitions from the old style XUL extensions to mailExtensions.

As for reporting spam, I can imagine few less useful tasks someone could set themselves up for. Report it to who? I am serious with this statement. Reporting spam is a total waste of time most of the time. For you and the person you are emailing the report to. While government department almost universally encourage reporting, they rarely if ever do anything with the reports. It is more of a political move to give folks an outlet.

Historically email providers had an abuse@ email address you could report spam to. My observations here when checking server configurations is that the vast majority of bargain basement domain for the big sellers simply do not have an active abuse@ email address and the existence of an Admin@ or webmaster@ is also not as common as it once was.

However this add-on says it works with Thunderbird 68. https://addons.thunderbird.net/en-US/thunderbird/addon/signal-spam/?src=search

I guess we all have more and less important add-ons. The new Thunderbird version knows which add-on will work and which won't. Why isn't that shown BEFORE the update? Then I can choose myself when to update. Do I have to wait for the add-on to be working with new TB again or can I work without it.

Working without Stationery (Add-On) is impossible for me, so update this time meant additional hours of work to get old TB-version back.

Or is there an add-on doing exactly that? Checking if all the Add-ons will still work?

The add-on that I lost with the v68 upgrade was Auto Resize Image by TrVTrV, a hugely useful add-on that I used practically every time I attached an image to an email. It saved lots of time having to resize images outside Thunderbird before attaching them to an email.

The comments from a developer in SafeTex's 11/2/19, 4:38 PM post were actually by Auto Resize Image's developer, TrVTrV, and I think you can understand his frustration with Thunderbird's developers as well as the tight-fisted users of his great add-on who donated so little for the privilege of using his add-on.

Anyway, now that Auto Resize Image is seemingly and lamentably gone, might it be possible for TB developers to create a built-in image resizer for TB? I know that Apple's otherwise inferior mail program ("Mail"!) has a built-in image resizer in both Mac OS and iOS versions, and again, it's really handy. So what might the possibilities be for TB? I, and I'm sure many other TB users, would be eternally grateful.

This add-on works here in TB 68.3.1, although some of the wording is in Italian:

Thanks sfhowes. I've tried out Shrunked Image Resizer and it does work, but it only does jpegs, so compared to Auto Resize Image, extra time has to be spent changing other formats, e.g. pngs, into jpegs. Let's hope that either TrVTrV has a change of heart and brings back Auto Resize Image, or Geoff Lankow adds pngs and other formats to Shrunked Image Resizer, or — preferably — the Thunderbird development team build an image resizer into a (hopefully near) future version of TB.

By the way, I sent this email to TrVTrV a week ago:

Hi TrVTrv,

So sorry to see that you have decided that Mozilla has made it too difficult for you to carry on upgrading Auto Resize Image. It has been an indispensable part of my daily emailing practice and I will really miss it. I hope that I contributed enough €€€ over the years to help cover your work on it. If you ever decide to bring it back, please let me know and I will be willing to help with the costs.

Anyway, Joyeux Noël et Bonne Année, and thanks again for all your work!

Regards, Chris
