AJAX Yahoo! Mail 0.6 released

Just released the latest version of AJAX Yahoo! mail on mozilla.org. This is a bug fix release. No new features in this version. Many people had reported that firefox was crashing after using the extension. That has been resolved in this release. Have also fixed opening an attachment with a single click. Now that feature also works again.

If you have any comments or suggestions about this or any previous release of this product leave your comments on this page. I am working on an article that shows how this extension has been developed and how you can convert your Web 1.0 applications to Web 2.0 without making too many changes. You can subscribe to my blog http://vivekjishtu.blogspot.com/ for infomation about when I put up that article online. You can subscribe using the Atom Feed

[ Install AJAX Yahoo! Mail [0.6] ] [ Screenshots ]

If you are new to AJAX Yahoo! Mail here is what its supposed to do :)

This firefox extension enhances the way you use Yahoo! Mail. Just try it out once if you use yahoo mail.
This extension converts Yahoo! Mail into an AJAX enabled web account. Incase you have a problem while upgrading on installing it, leave a comment on this page. You can read more about this plugin on mozilla.org, you can also read the reviews by the users who have used this extension. This is what you can do with the current version.

  • Compose or reply an email in a second
  • View all your mails without going back and forth
  • Download an attachment with a single click

You can download the firefox plugin or you can download the user script which you can use with greasemonkey.
This website is not supported by Yahoo! nor is this site anyway linked to Yahoo! it is just a proof of concept about what can be done with AJAX . Do not use the greasemonkey script if you have Greasemonkey 0.6.x, it will not work with it.

    I sent to you this week an e-mail, because the installed extension was not working, but since I restarted the Window the extension is working, so I don’t need help from your side.

    You can download the script from to view how it works internally.

    If you open a mail in preview mode and then click on any attachment it will not take you to the next webpage but start the download there and then. Hope that helps.

    This is a great extension. It really speeds up Yahoo Mail. Can you enhance this extension to provide similar feature for viewing Yahoo Notes and Calendar Event List and Tasks. That would be great as I use Yahoo Calendar and Tasks extensively.

    Thanks in advance,

    When I press the ‘+’, I get a blank message instead of my Email. How can I fix this? I’m using Firefox 2.0.

    It seems Yahoo did something to prevent this extension from displaying the body of the message. The space is opened up for it but the message isn’t displayed. I say Yahoo did something because it was working then I recieved a note from Yahoo saying that they were upgrading last week and this hasn’t worked since. Any suggestions?

    Great extension. Since last wednesday I get blank page instead of message, but I’m still waiting for the new release because I don’t yet ready for new Yahoo interface. I think the original version offers more space. Thanx
