Priority Switcher doesn't work anymore with the current versions of Thunderbird
- Assigned to
- PS 2.0.5
I found your Add-On via google because Thunderbird (still) lacks an option to change the priority of received mails. Too many senders put their mails to high priority even though it's not that urgent.
I found a solution (which is why I set this ticket to low priority) to solve the problem for me: I just extracted priority_switcher-2.0.5-tb.xpi (which is a zip archive) and modified the file manifest.json inside it to a higher version number ("strict_max_version": "106.*"), rezipped it and installed the zip file with .xpi extension via drag-n-drop onto Thunderbird. That did the trick. At least I can change priorities again and didn't noticed other errors yet. Nevertheless, the Add-On is displayed on https://addons.thunderbird.net/de/thunderbird/addon/priority-switcher/ as "not compatible" so it cannot be installed without the modifying mentioned above. (Which most users probably won't/ can't do.)
[OS] Windows 7, Windows 10 [Application] Thunderbird 102.7.2 (32-Bit)
