Gmail Subject Popupper


I am using filter to set labels automatically. But in mail list view, subject was truncated because labels take a place.
So I create this addon to show full length subject and message snippet as a tooltip on list view.

Unexpectedly there was a good side effect that is easy & quick message preview is available on the list without affect to read/unread flag.

Contents in tooltip is depends on Gmail settings "Snippets".
Gmail -> Settings -> General -> Snippets

Tooltip is Firefox default tooltip. So this addon can't customize it. But conbination addon "Stylish" and userstyles "Customize font size for Firefox default tooltip" and "Change tooltip colors and fonts" could customize tooltip by yourself.

Default tooltip delay time is 500 milliseconds. If you feel it too long delay, you can configure it by creating new preference "ui.tooltipDelay". You can get more information from Preference reference below.

Mozilla is changing a lot of things about add-on development again. So this addon might be stop working in the future.
