The Options Dialog:


Options Window 1


1: Enable Javascript: this is the main javascript pref. If it is enabled you will be able to use javascript on websites only. Javascript will not be enabled for Emails or RSS Feed Entries. By default it's off.

2: Warn About Javascript URLs: This is an extra security precaution that is set that will alert you when you click on a link that contains javascript: in it. This is so a hacker or someone to that effect can't run javascript through a link.

3: Enable Button Titles: By default this is on, it shows the words "Forward, Back, Refresh, Go" on the buttons on the ThunderBrowse toolbar.

4: Change Window Title for websites and email: If this setting is on, then Email Subject titles and Website titles will appear as the Window title. Much like you see in Firefox.

5: New Tabs should be selected when created: When checked, this setting will make all newly created tabs come into focus.

6: Remove to, from, and subject bar while browsing: This feature clears up the preview pane area so you will be able to browse in a bigger area. It removes the to, from, and subject bar as well as the attachment bar. Bars created by other extensions will probably not hide.

7: Use AutoComplete: Like in Firefox, ThunderBrowse has the ability to go back to old urls by simply typing part of the url. A menu will appear and will suggest some recently typed in urls.

8: Autoselect the URLBar on click: This option makes it so that you only have to click once on the urlbar to select all the text inside of it

9: Hide the Bookmarks menu?: When this option is checked, the Bookmarks menu will be removed from the window. Uncheck it to make the Bookmarks menu visable again.

10: Enable Command Line Installs?: When enabled, ThunderBrowse will take urls to extension files passed via commandline with the flag of -install and install the extensions. This is handy (and necessary) if you have TBExtInt installed for Firefox.

11: URLBar placed at bottom of window?: When enabled, the URLBar will be placed at the bottom of the window, this requires a restart in order to work.

12: Clear History Button: This button clears the history of the current session. ThunderBrowse clears this data automatically when you close Thunderbird.

13: Change Key: This allows you to change the default Ctrl+W key that opens up an external window (as in just a simple popup window). If you change it to a key that is used by another extension or by Thunderbird, you will need the keyconfig extension.

14: Custom Browser launcher: this preference is ONLY for advanced users. DON'T tamper with it. This is for people who want to launch a browser other than the default browser (which is the one that opens when you click on links [on default Microsoft computers it's Internet Explorer unless the user has installed Firefox or another browser]).

15: Mouse Functions Tab: This is the part of the window that contains the settings for remapping mouse functions. See below.

Options Window 2


Middle Clicked Links Should Open in:

1: New Tab: Setting this will cause middle clicking on links to open in a new tab rather than opening an external browser (like Firefox)

2: External Browser: Setting this will cause middle clicking on links to open in an external browser (like Firefox)

Left Clicked Links Should Open in:

3: the current tab: all links within that tab will open in that tab when left clicked

4: a new tab: all new links will open in new tabs

5: Ask to launch browser on middle click?: When checked, you will see a prompt asking if you really want to launch an external browser. This helps for accidental clicks. This setting means nothing if middle clicked links should open in a new tab.

6: GUI links should open in a popup window: When checked, this option makes "Get Extensions" and "Visit Homepage" links for extensions and themes open in a popup window. Mr. Tech's Local Install conflicts with this option.
