Thunderbird 5 Support

Wednesday, June 29th, 2011

Okay, so tonight I opened up Thunderbird 5. It looks nice. I got ThunderBrowse mostly working. The downside is that the status bar randomly freaks out and I haven’t figured out why exactly that happens.

New Software: ThunderBrowse Command Line Handler

Tuesday, August 31st, 2010

This is just a program I’ve had lying around on my hard drive for awhile and I thought I would release it.

Several people wanted to have ThunderBrowse as their default browser. This addon allows ThunderBrowse to take urls from the command line. You still need to modify some registry values to make ThunderBrowse the default browser, but this is the first step.

How to use

The format to pass urls to ThunderBrowse is:

Thunderbird.exe -tbrowse URL

Where URL is the url to browse to.

What it does

If a Thunderbird window is open, a new ThunderBrowse tab will be created via this method. If no Thunderbird window is open, a ThunderBrowse window will be created.

The addon should support all applications that ThunderBrowse supports (Thunderbird, Postbox, Spicebird).

As with pretty much all other projects, you can’t redistribute this. You can link to this category for updates.
