The biggest problem I see that this is a memory hog application.
Turning it on cause me to have to increase my swap space and with only 8 GB of memory has other problems too. The filter window expands so large I have to keep shrinking it to find the ok button at the bottom. I have very large list and likely need to trimmed down. Just wish the windows sizeing of the filter window would fit the screen and not have to keep scrollimg it. Another thing the fact that it memory hog and having such a smaller memory capacity these applicaiton needs to consider that. I see too much memory taken up. TB is getting way too big.

Why don't you raise some bugs on my github? Just got to

and click on [New Issue]

The long windows is actually a Thunderbird bug - it has nothing to do with quickFilters, but I may find a workaround. Also the filtering mechanism itself that is from Thundebird, so I don't feel like quickFilters should get a bad rating for that,

Ok, it's a very good add-on, supplies some needed functionality. So much so I decided to look at paying for the pro license, just to support the developer.

But then, I got to the licensing page, and saw the part where you can't buy it, only rent it for a year. Then, even though you haven't consumed any more of the developer's resources by using it on your onwn computer, you have to pay him for it again. And again the next year. And again the next year.

Sorry, that's not how it works. If I buy something from you, I'm buying it from you. You don't get to take it back every year just because you want to charge me again and again for something I already paid you for.

Write software that's worth paying for (which you definitely have), and people like me will happily pay a fair price to buy it. Once. Then, if you release a new version with better features, we'll happily pay an upgrade fee for that.

But expecting people to pay over and over again for the same thing just because you wish to make unlimited money off of them is just greedy. I won't support it. Once I've paid you for something, it's mine. I get to use it. You don't get to say how long I can use it for.

Otherwise, you don't get to have me as a customer for your product.

Please reconsider your licensing model. Best of luck to you.

thanks for your feedback. A couple of things to not:

Would it help you if it was permananet but fixed to just Thunderbird 78 as maximum version? Because I have to rewrite my Add-ons every year to future proof them. This is different from Software that is compiled to run on an operating system which is guaranteed to stay stable for 10s of years. Every year the ESR comes along and breaks a lot of things. If I sell a permanent license this i a broken promise: I walk away and do nothing and it will stop working after a year - or you are forced to stay behind on an outdated Thunderbird version.

So you are not paying me for the same thing but for the fact that I am not walking away and keep fixing and re-writing the code. Last year I had to invest 3500$ by hiring an external developer just so my Add-ons could survive - plus putting in many weeks of my own work.

Once we have converted the Add-ons to full blown web-extensions which work with the Thunderbird APIs only I will definitely sell permanent licenses but it's a long way until then. The APIs are incomplete and do not allow many things that were possible with legacy Add-ons (and are currently possible with experimental add-ons of which quickFilters had to become one.

As much as I love the add-on, the developers have allowed the app to violate a cardinal rule and allowed this app to generate a POPUP ad on my desktop. Bye Bye,

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.2). 

that's fine - you wouldn't have seen it with a license.

I have to finance my work somehow, and unfortunatly that's the only way to attract attention from "free as in beer" users every few months. Your choice! (Also I am only a single dev, and it's a lot of work)

Also, I did translate the most important changes into 17 languages on that screen. Not everyone can digest the English only change log. And translating 1000s of words on that site it just not an option for that price,

Quel révolution dans ma gestion des mails... Et encore, je n'utilise qu'une infime partie de ce que la version payante me permet !

Dis, une question : j'ai changé un paramètre (je le sais...) et à présent l'assistant de création de filtre ne me propose plus le choix entre créer et fusionner, je ne peux que créer un nouveau filtre. Impossible de retrouver où changer ce fichu paramètre pour retrouver le choix.
Merci de ton aide !
J.

[Edit] Danke für deine Antwort, obwohl es nicht das richtige Ort war, die Frage zu stellen :)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.1). 

In quickFilters preferences, first tab "Actions" under "Merge Rules" (Règles de fusion) there is a setting "Skip to Template Step" (Passer et aller à l'étape modèl) - I guess that's what you may have activated. Btw, you can get direct help via the support (Aide) tab.

It's already there, and it is called "custom templates". With these, you can design your own templates exactly the way you described - please check the "Advanced" tab to try them out.

Bonjour ,
1- Je fais une recherche (Ctrl shift F ).
Je selectionne un message qui apparait.
Je lance "Appliquer les filtres sur le message" ,et aucune action !
Etrange non ?? :-)
Module super pratique ,vivement que cela refonctionne comme avant !merci

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.0.2). 

Actually "apply filters" to a message from the context menu is a built in function from Thunderbird - it's not provided by quickFilters. The main business of qF is managing filters and easily creating new ones through an assistant that watches you while you file away mail. Also backup / restore / sorting / troubleshooting.

I would still be interested in your use case, can you please create a new issue on github?

I love this so much I still use the old Thunderbird and am not updating until this addon gets updated.
Seriously, why would anyone use Thunderbird any other way?
My elderly mother used it as well until she accidentally hit that nagging "Do you want to update Thunderbird" button
Then I gave up on her and just installed the lastest version.
I wish there was a way to disable that nagging popup.

Dear Jeff - It is updated as of December 2nd (version 5.0.2). Before you update I would advise using the backup feature to save all your filters (in the filters list, toolbar on top) for each of your accounts just in case Thunderbird gets something wrong. As regards popup can you send a screenshot to the github please?

This is the single most useful, must-have Thunderbird add-on.

I hope the author is able to update it for the new Thunderbird, I miss it so much.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.4.1). 

The latest version 5.0.2 is compatible with Thunderbird 78 and was released on ATN on December 2nd.

Ha! I wish I would have read this before upgrading Thunderbird! I do have a license for quickFilters, so hopefully that will help with the new QF update, so I can get filtering soon.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.4.1). 

I just uploaded a first beta version for quickFilters - if you are interested:

Really nice addon, unfortunatelly not compatible with new thunderbird..
Please, update? :o)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.4.1). 

The latest verion 5.0.2 was released on December 2nd and is fully compatible with Thunderbird 78.

It takes a lot of time and quite a bit of money, so if you want to support that financially, check out the support pages. here is the issue that handles the upgrade:

if you comment there you will be the first to be notified of a beta version!

I have problems when I created the rule (label the mail) and executed it, but when I chose other mail, the label of the mail disappeared.

A must have add-on. It should be integrated into Thunderbird imho. Thanks for this one.

Keine volle Punktzahl, da beim Erstellen des Filters meine Einstellung des Zielordners durch die Wahl "Nachricht kopieren" anstelle "Verschieben" gelöscht wird.
EIne schöne Erweiterung wäre, wenn man nicht vorhandene Zielordner in dieser Funktion direkt anlegen könnte. Bei eingeschaltetem AddOn ist die Anlage eines neuen Unterverzeichnisses nicht möglich. Man muss das AddOn ausschalten und kann danach einen Unterordner anlegen.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.3.1). 

So eine detaillierte Beschreibung wäre eher was für den Support.

Falls Du ein Standard Template (z.b. Basierend auf Absender (von)" benutzt ist das Standard-Verhalten "verschieben", nicht kopieren. Änderst Du danach die Einstellung manuell auf "kopieren"? Mit "benutzerspezifischen Vorlagen" liesse sich dies aber in jedem Fall bewerkstelligen.

Bitte entweder ein bug oder neues feature request auf meinem github tracker anmelden.
https://github.com/RealRaven2000/quickfilters/issues

Im übrigen kannst Du mit meinem QuickFolders Add-on _mit_ aktivem filter assistenten neue Verzeichnisse erstellen. Benutze dazu am besten die quickMove schaltfläche: mails auf die Fläche schieben, dann eingeben:
elternverzeichnis/kindverzeichnis

(elternverzeichnis kann z.B. auch nur die ersten 2 buchstaben sein, z.B. für Kunden/Fred kannst Du "ku/fred" eingeben) - existiert das Verzeichnis kannst Du verschieben, existiert es nicht (aber andere Unterverzeichnisse existieren schon) gibt es den Menüpunkt "erstelle neues Verzeichnis Kunden/Fred". Dann erstellt QF das neue Verzeichnis und verschiebt die Mails hinein. Danach wird der Filter Assistent getriggert. (ach ja zum Kopieren, beim drag+drop [Strg] gedrückt halten)

Neue Verzeichnisse Anlegen automatisch ist schwieriger wäre aber eine mögliche neue Funktion für FiltaQuilla:

It's a little sad that Thunderbird needs an addon to create custom filters out of existing messages, but this addon solves this problem perfectly. Absolute must-have!

Very useful. I needed it only to export and import filters from my other computer. Sadly that is not a built in feature of thunderbird. The thing I like most about the addon is that it reuses the existing filters and does not reinvent the wheel. Very useful.
I appreciate the work and time creating this addon and bought a license. Keep up your good work :)

I've been using Thunderbird for a number of years because I just could't count on Outlook to move emails to the appropriate folders. Thunderbird and this add-on have worked without a hitch. This add-on saves me time and makes sure that important emails aren't lost in the flood of daily emails that I get. I used the free version until recently. The annual license is very reasonable and if it helps keep this add-on working then I'm all for it. I'm sure the developer isn't getting rich from this add-on, but he should get compensated for the time it takes to produce and keep it running.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.2). 

thanks for the feedback. Indeed I am not getting rich, but I am pretty much doing this full time - I want to get to a point where this is sustainable at minimum wage, so I am happy about every single user who helps out with buying a license. Check out my other Add-ons QuickFolders and SmartTemplate⁴ when you can!
