Unable to install Thunderbird Extensions.

  Daibus 10:46 12 Dec 2004

I have had to just reinstall the Thunderbird 1.0 mail client but any Extension I choose will not install.

I go through the whole process and press the install icon, reboot but the new icon does not show on the Customize Toolbar window so therefore I cannot drag it to the actual Toolbar.

Help much appreciated.

Mozilla points out that some earlier plug-ins won't work or are version specific and to contact the authors requesting that they update them.

Many thanks for the reply but the Extensions I'm trying to install are the ones that are listed for Thunderbird 1.0.

There is only ten and I have tried a few of them.

Cheers again.

I had problems installing the GB spellcheck extension, it wouldn't. I had to download the file to my HD and unpack it and install it manually, not using the install button in the extensions window. I'm not sure if you can do that easily for the Windows version, because mines the Linux version it was easy.

Looks as though it's a fault at the moment?

Thank you for your help.

By the way, Thunderbird also brings up an envelope icon in the Taskbar whenever there are new messages available to be downloaded from the server.
