A couple years ago, I managed to find the Auto Message Select (AutoMsgSelect) addon extension on the web, which was originally developed for Thunderbird versions 1.x. The plugin was supposed to select the first message automatically and display it in the message panel.
Since I still use Thunderbird 2.0.0.24, I needed to adopt the plugin for the 2.x product line.

The plugin itself was incomplete, as I found out lately. It did not have the listeners implemented correctly, so the application was unable to select the newest message, when a new one arrived from the mail server. The plugin also wasn't detecting an ongoing mail server activity, so it always selected a random message among all others. Really a big mess.

Well, here is the changelog since v. 1.5.x:


I think that such functionality should be implemented in TB by default ...

AutoMsgSelect_0.2.2.2.xpi
