Extensions are small adds-ons that give new functionality to complement Thunderbird's built-in features, so that you can customize Thunderbird to fit your own individual needs.

Installation

Installing a Thunderbird extension is a two-step process. First, after finding the extension that you want to install, save it to your computer (right-click and choose "Save Link As...") in a convenient location. Second, in Thunderbird go to the "Tools" menu, select "Extensions", click the "Install" button, browse to the extension that you just downloaded, and click the Open/OK button.

After installing your extensions, it is a good idea to keep the downloaded files somewhere on your computer in case you need to install these extensions again in a new Thunderbird profile in the future.
