Gmail Smart-Delete Button Ver. 0.3.9 Released!


Note: If you have installed version 0.3.9 before June 29th, make sure you have installed the latest version!

[Show Full Post][Show Summary Only...]
The latest version of the Gmail Smart-Delete Button for FireFox's GreaseMonkey extension is 0.3.9.3. Some minor tweaks were performed on the 29th to get the 'd' keyboard shortcut to work properly. It seems quite stable now and I have gotten very positive feedback on this new feature. If you are experiencing any difficulties with the 'd' shorcut, simply re-install the script.

Per user request, it now provides keyboard shortcuts ['D' or 'd'] to delete selected mail items with a single keypress.

Gmail Smart-Delete Button Ver. 0.3.6 Released!

While researching reports of Gmail Locking accounts I noticed one cause seemed to be a timing issue with Gmail's auto-refreshing behavior.
[Show Full Post...]

[Show Summary Only...]

Apparently, Gmail does not play nice with timers in scripts, and so, after much experimentation, I have managed to do away with GSDB's main timer. I had been relying on it to recreate the button instance and enable/disable it when a checkbox was clicked. I needed this as Gmail's own client-side javascript code performs certain actions without generating any events! This meant I needed to revalidate at regular intervals.

Version 0.3.6 now manages to circumvent the need for a timer while still responding quickly to user actions. This should finally spell an end to the dreaded Lockdown in Sector 4!

Download version 0.3.6 here: Gmail Smart-Delete Button
[To install, right-click the above link & choose 'Install User Script...' from context menu.]



PS: I've removed the requirement to register before leaving a comment. So there's no excuse for not commenting. Let me know whose using the GSDB out there! I'll try to implement any useful (and reasonable) suggestions you come up with.

Gmail Smart-Delete Button Ver. 0.3.5 Released!

In response to users suggestions, I've relocated the GSDB in this new version to the immediate right of the 'More Actions' dropdown. This along with changing the button's text color to Dark Red (when enabled), will help prevent accidental deletion clicks. Also, additional error trapping code was added to ensure robust and reliable performance.
