Message Notes Plus for Thunderbird 1.2.2.9

Peter
Hi, thank you for the extension! However, it does not work: When I try to add a note to a message it shows me this error message:

http://img252.imageshack.us/img252/1553/errorx.gif

"Cannot talk to message notes database.
Do not show the add-on messages until Thunderbird restart. Log to error console."

I have:
Thunderbird 9.0.1
Windows 7 x64 SP1

Kind regards

Please check out the existence of database file: messagenotesplus.sqlite. It should have the path like:

c:\Users\alex\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\<profile directory>\messagenotesplus.sqlite

The most probable reason for the given error is that the file doesn't exist or has incorrect permissions.

If the file exists. Exit from Thunderbird. Remove the file. Start Thunderbird.

If the error is still there you could check error messages in Thunderbird. To do that open Message Notes Plus options dialog and check Debug Messages Notes. Then go to menu Tools->Error Console. The Error Console may contain some useful information about the error.

Please keep me informed.

Best regards,
Alex.

Hi Alex, I've deleted messagenotesplus.sqlite after closing Thunderbird. At restart of Thunderbird the file was automatically recreated (96 KB). The error still persists.

The first time after restarting Thunderbird I can write a text in the note field. But when I select another message the same note is still there, so the note is not linked to a specific message.
After that when trying to add a note the error message is displayed instead.

Kind regards,
Peter

Hi Alex, I've found the culprit: It is the "Thunderbird Conversations 2.2.4" addon. If I deactivate this addon then Message Notes Plus does work!

You can add an incompatibility report here:

https://github.com/protz/GMail-Conversation-View/wiki/IncompatibleAddons

However, the Thunderbird Conversations addon is very important for me, I cannot live without it. So I will have to deactivate the Message Notes Plus addon. Please solve the incompatibility issue. Thank you!

Kind regards,
Peter

Hi Peter,

Thank you for your investigations.

Unfortunately, the Conversations add-on  changes the Thunderbird too deeply. It will be incompatible automatically to any add-on which uses the area of Message Reading. This all described in https://github.com/protz/GMail-Conversation-View/wiki/faq ("Extension XXX does not work with Thunderbird Conversations.").

Actually starting from Thunderbird 3 there is Conversations View. Which has similar features and doesn't break compatibility with other add-ons.
This view can be opened from the context menu of message: "Open Message in Conversation".
