Clip-o-Tron support for Thunderbird? [A: Lacks support for OS X services feat.] Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes

  7. Click the "notes" icon a single "From ..." line appears.
  8. Click in that single line, and the note expands to show the key sentence from the message.
  9. Click the "Original Message" link, and Mail comes to the front, displaying the entire message (with attached images) in a new Window.
I did not know that this could be done, but now I've implemented it and it's blowing my mind. This may enable me to fix the Mail/Task disconnect which I've wrestled with for years.

I use Mail for many things, and Thunderbird for other things. I see that in Thunderbird, "OmniFocus: Send to InBox" is in the Services menu, but it's tantalizingly greyed-out, and when I go to Clippings in the OmniFocus Preferences, I can't figure out how to configure Thunderbird.

Can anyone help?

I don't/haven't used Thunderbird myself, but aren't all the Services Menu items disabled in Thunderbird? I recall reading somewhere that this is the case with Thunderbird and Firefox.
It's possible one of the more Mac-like Mozilla variants has implemented services support, but I think they try to steer clear of platform-specific features in Firefox and Thunderbird.
Postbox (based on Thunderbird and a bit more Mac-like) doesn't.
