Star Bug


When I star an email, whether in the Checker Plus view mode or the Inbox view mode, it stays starred in the latter but not in the former.


  • Yes correct it's a known limitation, I cannot determine if any emails as been previously starred in the Checker Plus view mode.
  • So there's no possible fix? :/
  • I am developing a new method of adding your accounts in a month or so (instead of auto-detecting) This method will allow you to see which emails are starred or not etc.
  • Oh, okay. Thanks so much! ^_^ By the way, I really love Firefox, so I'm switching to that browser. But I love your products so much; they make my life 10x easier and they're REALLY well-made! I'm wondering... Do you plan on ever developing Firefox versions of, say, Checker Plus for Gmail or whatnot?

    Thanks for the quick reply!
  • What? you're leaving us :) I thought I made made my extensions indispensable so that no one could switch away from Chrome. hehe ;)
    Ok refer to this about developing for Firefox http://jasonsavard.com/wiki/Other_browsers_and_devices
  • Haha. No, I love Chrome; I just love Firefox more. ;P Lol. And okay, I read the link, and it seems pretty reasonable. I thought you said on your bio that you did this full-time. Did you switch back to part-time? (I'm referencing the part of the link that says you're doing it as a hobby, not work.)
  • I toggle back and forth, work for a week then take a week off :) The hobby part references that I don't want to automate production of my extension to all browsers, that would be tedious and repetitive and might as well go back into the corporate life at that point ;)
  • Ah. That's a pretty good idea. By the way, what are your thoughts on the corporate world? I'm asking this because I'm considering switching to a business concentration at my university. You mentioned you have some experience there (I don't know how much), and I thought perhaps you had some advice to give to a fellow Webling. :)
  • In short the corporate world gave me a cushion of money and some spare time to start my business, since it may take a couple of years before you can be independent.
  • Ah. Cool. That's wonderful. I actually hope to someday perhaps have my own tech startup, so that sounds like great preparation. ^-^ Thanks!!
  • Has this bug been fixed?

    This is fixed if you use the manual adding method, more info http://jasonsavard.com/wiki/Account_sign_in_methods#Adding_accounts_manually
  • Hello.

    Once I star the e-mail in the default Checker Plus mode, I can no longer 'unstar' it. Nothing happens when I click on the button again.

    Is that related to being unable to remember whether the e-mail was starred in the first place? I think it should be possible to do this at least within the confines of a single session.
  • @Nevill
    Yes, this issue is also fixed when using the manual adding method: http://jasonsavard.com/wiki/Account_sign_in_methods#Adding_accounts_manually
  • Ah, alright, then. Thanks for the info!
