Thank you for this add-on.

That said, I think I discovered a bug, when using Emoji with DKIM Verifier, it returns an error of "Invalid (corrupted email)".

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.78.5). 

Please open a new issue at GitHub, providing more details: https://github.com/mganss/EmojiAddIn/issues
Thanks

I love this emoji add on, but it disappeared from the toolbar even though it's installed. I have tried reinstalling it with no luck. I am currently using Thunderbird 78.1.1. Any advice to get it back? Thanks!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.68.4). 

The add-on is not yet compatible with TB 78. Progress is tracked here: https://github.com/mganss/EmojiAddIn/issues/34

I loved it while it worked. Doesn't work in 68.11.0, Win 10 since a week or so ago. Where did all those neat emojii go?

Ah, I see. Its there. Before there was a tab at the top of the compose window. So, that's how I can access them. Thank you.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.68.4). 

It's likely that it just needs to be re-enabled. Check if there is an entry called Emoji in the View menu of the Compose window.

It's not working in Thunderbird 78.0.1
Can you pleased update it ?
Can you add more/better looking ones ?
Thank you

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.68.4). 

An update is planned, follow progress here: https://github.com/mganss/EmojiAddIn/issues/34

I'll also update to the latest JoyPixels. Different icon sets are not planned, IMO JoyPixels are among the best looking emoji plus they've also been very fast updating to the latest Unicode standard.

Worked before stopped working version 68.10 32 bit version. Does not update automatically

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.68.4). 

What exactly does not work? Perhaps you just have to enable the toolbar button again, see https://github.com/mganss/EmojiAddIn#thunderbird

The add-on automatically updates through Thunderbird's integrated add-on update mechanism.

If it still does not work for you, please open an issue at GitHub: https://github.com/mganss/EmojiAddIn/issues

Thanks

Love this extension! However, now it stopped working with latest thunderbird version. :-(

Which version of TB are you using? The add-on works fine in TB 68.x. What exactly does not work? Please open an issue at https://github.com/mganss/EmojiAddIn
Thanks

I have to apologize, after reading that your emoji add-on worked on your Thunderbird 68.3.1, I then uninstalled emoji add-on as well as Thunderbird and also deleted all the Thunderbird related folders within "AppData\Roaming" as well as deleted related Registry entries, then installed Thunderbird fresh again and the emoji add-on was working again. So the comments I made previously were not correct, that's why I deleted my previous review.
Thanks a lot for your help, much appreciated

I might be missing something here but where do you install this file to see and use these Emoji's? I'm a bit confused since it's not an auto install. Thanks for the help. Thanks to Michael, I was able to successfully install them...excellent

This is a great fun add-on.
Better still if you could add your own custom emojis.

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Absolutely useless ! Does not work at all, at least on my PC (running under Windows Vista SP2).

It didn't install any sidebar to the "compose " window, nor any scroll-down emoticon menu. Installing that add-on didn't change anything to my Thunderbird display.

Once again, at least for me it is 100% useless.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.6.1). 

You'll have to select Emoji from the "View" menu to show the sidebar.

Thank you, a really great addon to liven up messages. I did not see it, but an Emoji with a hiker wearing a backpack would be great for some of my messages, Thanks again for your hard work.

A fine add-on. I particularly enjoy using it to annoy my (adult) daughter with my old-fashioned (er... legacy) overuse of emoji.

I concur with the developer's reasoning for using images instead of codes as described in their post. Which suggests the following enhancement for a future update:

How about providing for a link to a custom local folder where the user can place favorite or customized images (which are only 72x72 png files, after all) , and access them in an integrated way in the add-on. It would expand the usefulness of the add-on considerably, and, hopefully, require minimal additional programming. Thanks for considering it.

Well, useless.
The display of the smileys has not changed at all.

## Critique

I expected this addon to, well, insert emojis to an e-mail, that is a short Unicode sequence, and only that. Something simple, lightweight, private.

It turns out that default mode is to insert *images*, implemented as link references to remotes images stored on an external network, that the recipient will have to download when they open the e-mail.

It is *very* different (and unacceptable to me). This should really be clearly announced in the description.

There's an option to hold shift key while clicking an emoji, to insert Unicode, but no option to disable insertion of image references once and for all. Details in https://github.com/mganss/EmojiAddIn/issues/14 and perhaps https://github.com/mganss/EmojiAddIn/issues/20 .

## Rating

So, how to rate that ?

The add-on appears to work. Had it titled "insert link to remote emoji images into your e-mails", it would deserve 4 or 5 stars. Current title create expectations, current implementation deceives them.

Basic features work, rating at least 2/5.
Expected feature can work but too clumsy and no option to have it right once and for all. Therefore, 3/5.

I stick to inserting strict Unicode emojis (no embedded images, no link to externally served images) by simply copy-pasting from any web site that shows lists of them, for example https://getemoji.com/ .

## Possible futures

There is still room for an addon similar to this one, but that only and strictly shows unicode emojis as they would appear in the e-mail if I pasted them.
Or an option in this add-on.
High-value bonus points for filtering emojis by "portability", or show how they will probably appear on recipient's screen. Now *that* would be a really great extension.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5.8). 

In 1.6.0 there is now an option to insert characters instead of images by default.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Fun add-on. Would be great if there were an option to allow the insertion of actual images instead of links to remote images. That may add a tiny bit to the size of the email, but so many people are setting their email clients not to allow remote content. Thanks.

Addon ist klasse, was ich vermisse ist eigene Smilies hinzuzufügen.

Addon is great, what I miss is adding your own smilies.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a very promising extension, and quite useful. However, a couple of caveats:
1) There should be an option to make Unicode emojis standard. Quite a few mail programs dislike non-Unicode emojis.
2) The emoticon button currently in the formatting/typing command bar will only allow me to add one emoji. After that it stops working. In fact, the button is so useless that I would like an option to get rid of it.
If you could fix the two items above, this add-on would certainly merit five stars.
In the meantime, thank you for your hard work so far!

UPDATE: I have changed my rating to five stars after the dev's reply (incidentally, thank you for answering so promptly). The reasons are:
1) If it's on the near-future agenda, that's good enough for me.
2) After researching this a bit, I find that I mistook—what I now discover to be—TB's built-in (and less-than-useless) emoticon button on the formatting bar for one inserted by this extension. Sorry for the confusion. Mind you, I would still like to get rid of it ;-) Apologies again.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5.7). 

Thanks for your feedback. The first item is on the agenda. The second item I don't understand, can you provide more detail, ideally by opening an issue at GitHub? Thanks
