As of version 2, Thunderbird still forces you to go through an awkward process of opening a properties window if you want to be able to check a folder for new items. If you have a large number of folders, this quickly becomes very annoying. FolderCheck adds a new item to the context menu for folders that allows you to quickly and easily toggle the “check this folder for new messages” setting.
This plugin is also available at Mozilla's add-on repository.
The current public version is version 0.1.
- 0.2 — Under development; will allow multiple folders to be selected at once
- 0.1 — First public release; adds a context menu item to all folders
