Oh how I missed nostalgy, thank you SO MUCH for re-writing this for TB78+. I sent you a donation, thanks again!

For those of you who haven't tried this, it makes handling messages a dream. In particular the ` key to quick-filter by sender or subject makes dealing with volumes of email quickly. Also the save (really moves the message) is of great value!

Works awesome, thank you very much for this addon. The only thing i would add, is a copy + mark unread function. I'm using this to make copies into other accounts which are used to import email into other systems like CRM.

Great that Nostalgy came back, gladly supported to the bounty.

Anyway, still have a few issues and no other place to report them (or is there a github repo existing now, as promised?)
TB 78.5.0

1. When TB is taking the right 50 % of the screen (WIN-LeftArrow) and pressing "s", the TB window resizes to the right by some 10 pixels, over the edge of the screen. Does not happen when not exactly on the right edge of the screen. Also does not always happen, I assume this is triggered by the slight status bar size change.
2. Add-on Settings cannot be reached, neiter from the add-on managment page, nor from tools->addon settings->nostalgy++
3. The dropdown list is often containing entries from the previous search, but TAB updates the search field correctly and enter moves the mail correctly. Screenshots on request, but I don't know the pattern behind it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2.2). 

thanks for the comment.
1) I didn't even know that WIN-LeftArrow exists. I will see what can be done.

Issues should go here: https://github.com/opto/nostalgy-xpi/issues.
New releases are here: https://github.com/opto/nostalgy-xpi/releases/.

2) Addon settings: which version? Github has 2.2.4 which is also under review. Works here in all versions: Tools->Nostalgy++ (at the bottom of the list), second entry: tools->addon settings->Nostalgy++. Maybe you can report on github version and OS version to see what might be different for you.
3) Dropdown list: no code changes versus earlier version. TB's autocomplete component was changed and is now in a custom element. Don't know what can be done, will check
.And thanks for contributing to the bounty.

Wow! Full access to Thunderbird and my computer! Why asking for the maximum permissions? Nostalgy used to be my favourite add-on but I will not give it full permissions, sorry. I'll have to find something else or fork it. Too bad.

-----

Thanks for your reply. I discovered that all extensions apparently ask for all permissions while, once installed, they are presented as "no permissions". Another weird aspect of Thunderbird. I installed your version, tested it and it is perfect. Thanks a lot for the port, opto. I'll donate because Nostalgy is absolutely essential.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2.2). 

There is no change in permissions as compared to before. Addons always had these permissions.

Same for other open source software. Libreoffice, for example, can create/write/delete (settings) files. It has 'full' access to your computer. I am pretty sure they could erase your harddisk (delete all your files) if they truely wanted.

Mozilla is trying to scare people away from the old addon type using strong words. But the new addon type can still hardly do anything near Nostalgy capabilities, we still need the old addon style.

To return some trust, the old addons are reviewed by real persons, not automatic.

I hope that info helps.

Without a doubt the most important productivity plugin for me, every day.
Thanks for "resurrecting" it :-)
I will participate with pleasure.

This is my favorite add-on and I used it constantly in my workflow to manage my emails. Big thanks to opto for keeping it function despite major changes to the Thunderbird code and architecture that require significant re-writes by opto.

I consider Thunderbird broken without this functionality. I process 100's of emails daily and this add-on makes it super easy to scan an email and file it away for future reference.

Opto actively develops and maintains this add-on. Issues get fixed and improvements happen! Thank you for such a useful add-on.

Just made my second financial contribution in as many months.

This add is a must for anyone who needs to work with Thunderbird effectively.

Simple keyboard shortcuts allows to user to carry out quickly some of the most frequently performed actions in Thunderbird UI.

I've loved to use Nostalgy++.
Now with TB 78 can't install it.
Is it available for 78.4.1?
I'd appreciate info, thank you.

Thank you very much for this version that now works with TB78. I would also like to report the bug that the window resizes horizontally. I think it is due to the input field in the status bar. When that appears as a result of a Nostalgy keyboard command, the window is automatically resized so that everything still fits in the status bar. Thanks again!

Kudos for updating Nostalgy++ to TB78! Folder name completion and shortcuts are critical for folks who have more than a few folders or prefer navigating folders from the keyboard rather than with the mouse.

Frankly, I'm surprised that this functionality isn't native to Thunderbird (it is to many other mail clients).

I had to live without Nostalgy for a few weeks after TB 78 was released, really appreciate the work to bring it back in the current version! I really hate having to reach for the mouse and right click on multiple submenus just to organise email properly... this add-on is awesome.

When Thunderbird updated this morning and I realized that Nostalgy doesn't work anymore, my heart sank. I considered de-installing Thunderbird and installing an older version, just so Nostalgy would work again. It is inconceivable to me, to use Thunderbird without this add-on. It's an absolute life saver. When I then found this new version and it worked again, it absolutely made my day. Donation is made. Please keep up the good work.

When I saw that Nostalgy was not working anymore with the newer Thunderbird version, it was like the clouds went all dark! OMG! how shall I survive without sorting my mails using the keyboard! Thank you opto for htis wonderful work, after sorting 2 mails and seeing it works, I made a donation. THANK YOU

Indispensable! Nostalgy adds an essential feature (do Thunderbird devs not use keyboards? can they not type?) and this is the new improved version complete with active support. Thank you opto!

PS 2 bugs outstanding: options should be moved to Add-on Options; and when there is a save folder suggestion, Enter should accept the suggestion instead of throwing an error.
I see the note that TAB+enter accepts the suggestion, but that doesn't work for me: I still get the error.

Other than that, perfect!

if there is a suggestion, you now need TAB + enter.
That comes from the new autocomplete component of TB. Don't know whether it can be changed ...

Now that the issue with the 'c' shortcut in the message composer window seems to be fixed (see https://github.com/opto/nostalgy-xpi/issues/29), I would give it a full 5-stars!

Just the fact that the settings menu is somehwat "hidden" at the bottom of the Tools/Extras menu (which is faded out in TB by default) makes it a bit awkward to find. It should be moved to the "Add-on Settings" menu.

Apart from that, kudos to the developer! I think you managed to migrate an add-on to TB78+ that is essential, if not the most essential productivity add-on at all for many power users.

curious bug. Options is not in the addons options menu, because no icon is registered for the extension...
Thanks to TB people for pointing that out - the code is ok, only the (unrelated) icon missing.
With due time, I will add that.
Thanks,
Klaus

UPDATE: Only now I see that "karagkiozhs" reported essentially the same as I. So please take my message as a "thumbs up" and "+1" for the behaviors! :)

I was thrilled when Nostalgy++ finally started working in TB78.
Unfortunately, there are two showstoppers for me:
- In the message editor, whenever I type "c" in the message texct, the editor jumps into the CC field. SO my text would have to be without "C"s. I guess using a simple key without a modifier isn;t suitable in scenarios where text is being entered?
- When trying to move messages the od way (press "s", proceed to type folder name to autocomplete), the autocomplete finds the folder I am looking for, I hit enter and I get a JS popup message sayinbg "there is no filder with then name 'workor >> .../.../Workorder'" which was exactly the contents of the quick search field. Somehow the suggestion I tried to "accept" didn;t get recognized and the entire text was taken instead.

If you, opto, could fix these, I would gladly switch back from the slow and uncomfortable (for me) "Quick message move".

Thank you!
Viktor
