Anonymous comment is temporarily allowed

Anonymous comments had been forbidden in order to avoid comment spams. Now I allow anonymous comments for test. If the blog receives many spams, it may be forbidden again.

Google Contacts 0.5.52

Google Contacts 0.5.52 is now available for download. It includes the following changes:
  • Added: auto reload option
  • Fixed: duplicated groups/contacts are created when multiple accounts are synchronized
Generaly, auto reload is not needed by synchronizing with Interactive mode and reloading contacts at startup. However, for users who rarely finish Thunderbird, they have to reload contacts manually with the settings. So, the auto reload option is added for users who modify contacts at Gmail while Thunderbird is working. I recommend the option only for such users and don't recommend you to set small number such as 0.1 since reloading contacts frequently will lower the performance of Thunderbird.

Debugging Google Contacts

Google Contacts still has unfound bugs since it is a complex extension. If you find a problem, check the Error Console message. An error message which includes a word "gmcont" is an error of Google Contacts. Please let me know the messages.

Google Contacts also has a verbose mode. If you cannot find an error message in the Error Console, please try the following:
  1. Open Config Editor
  2. Create a key "browser.dom.window.dump.enabled" as boolean and set it to true
  3. Finish Thunderbird
  4. Start Thunderbird with -console option
  5. Thunderbird will start with console
  6. Reproduce the problem and send me messages in the console (mask your personal infomation such as email address before you send it to me)
Thank you for your contribution.

Open a new tab by mouse clicking

I didn't know a way to open new tab except for the context menu in Thunderbird3. So, I implemented a functionality to open a tab by message double-clicking in New Tab Button extension.

But I found that middle mouse clicking opens a message in a tab. It is very convenient method which Thunderbird3 originally has. Try it if you did't know the functionality.

Anonymous comments are forbidden

As you may know, this blog has received many comment spams these days. I deleted them manually but I cannot continue such tiresome works anymore. So, I forbid to post anonymous comments here. You need to have a google account or OpenID. I don't know whether it blocks spams or not, but it worth trying, I think.

I'm sorry for the inconvenience. If you have a better solution, please let me know.
