About this Add-on
From version 78, Thunderbird only supports the necessary interfaces for this add-on via "WebExtension Experiments". A lot of program code of the add-on would have to be rewritten for this. It is not expected that the necessary interfaces will be permanently implemented in Thunderbird (as MailExtension API), and the "WebExtension Experiments" will also be removed in the future, which is why the effort is no longer worthwhile. Therefore, this add-on will no longer receive an update and it will not be available for Thunderbird 78.
The source code of the add-on is open source and is available at GitLab .
The translations available so far can be found on the CrowdIn platform.
Note: You have to uninstall the prior / original add-on "AttachmentExtractor" before installing this new / fixed add-on. They should not be used in parallel.
This project should be regarded as inherently a work in progress. Most of the functionality is achieved by leveraging existing Thunderbird functionality in a more efficient way, so it should be safe. Some of the functions involve modifying your emails, but warnings are displayed as appropriate.
In summary, I take absolutely no responsibility of the actions of the add-on, either unintended or otherwise.
