User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2b1) Gecko/20091029 Firefox/3.6b1
Build Identifier: Mozilla Thunderbird 3.6

New mail alert notification pop up quits working after the Thunderbird Getmail extension is installed. This happens with Win XP also using Firefox 2-3 versions with Thunderbird. You still get the sound alert but not the pop up. I have tried it on several computers and it does the same thing every time. The mail pop up still works on older versions of Firefox below version 2 that had the Firefox mail tab so you did not have to use the Getmail extension. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Firefox version 2-3
2.Install one of the newest versions of Thunderbird
3.Install the Thunderbird extension Getmail
Actual Results:  
Kills the New mail alert notification pop up

Expected Results:  
New mail alert notification pop up quits working
If the getmail extension is causing a problem when installed in Thunderbird, then unfortunately that is an issue with the extension and you should report it to the extension author.

If the extension authors have specific problems in Thunderbird's APIs then they are welcome to report it so we can fix it, but as we don't control extensions we are unable to provide support for them.
