Better Gmail 2 And Better Flickr Updated

Released a few fix-it updates to the Better Gmail 2 and Better Flickr Firefox extensions, which you can get by pressing the “Find Updates” button in your extensions dialog box.

Better Gmail 2 version 1.2 plays catch-up with Google’s latest changes to Gmail: Hide Spam Count now works, and I swapped out Folders4Gmail (which no longer works) with Label Links, a script that does something similar to the Labs version of Nested Labels. Also replaced the CPU-hogging Highlight Rows with Keyboard script with something that does the same thing without the performance hit. Better Flickr also got a much needed once-over, and now doesn’t break editing photo descriptions when Rich Edit Controls are turned on. Enjoy the updates! As always, questions about the extensions should go to the Better Firefox Extensions mailing list.


  • But does Better Gmail 2 now work correctly with Gmail embedded email images? Previously if you had ‘Attachment Icons’ switched on, it just replaced the image inside the email with a tiny preview of the image type (ie. the attachment icon you’d expect to see on the Gmail message list index)
