Developed withThe best Java IDE
Linux Mint

Firefox Quantum (57.0 …)

I'm aware that Save Image in Folder and Save Link in Folder are no longer compatible with the latest Firefox releases.
These extensions are based on Mozilla's XUL- and XPCOM-APIs, which are now obsolete and no longer supported.

Bringing the extensions back to life would require a complete rewrite using WebExtensions.
Unfortunately at the moment I can't give you any details on when (or even if) I will be able to accomplish this task.
I will look into it if time permits.

Thanks for your patience!


NewMail Execute   NewMail Execute - Screenshots

Install the extension and enter the options-dialog:


There you can set the executable of your choice and enter any additional arguments which shall be passed.
As you may have already guessed, the variable called %folder% will be replaced with the folder's name that triggered the execution.

(Hint: The path to your executable may also contain the special directory-variables which I already explained for my "Signature Switch"-extension.)

Well... actually that's pretty much about it.
Whenever a new mail is arriving in any of your folders that executable should be started.

My original motivation in writing this extension was that Thunderbird's WAVE-output somehow sounded a bit crappy on my Linux-system; and therefore I had to turn it off. (ALSA plays fine on my machine, but the Mozilla-Core seems to use the OSS-API to play sound.)
So I had to find a way to get my sound-notification back. ;-)

Besides I thought it would be great if you had different sound-notifications for the different persons sending you emails.

So here you have the shell-script which does all the magic for me:

Now I finally have proper sound plus a nice notification window (which disappears automatically). ;-)
