    Thanks, Gina! My RTM for Gmail add-on had been malfunctioning. Now it’s working again!

    Huh. Add Row Highlights, Hide Chat, and Hide Invites Box are all working fine for me (without this update). I’m running v0.7.3 with FF 3.0.6 on OS X 10.5.6. (I’m also using the Shiny theme if that could make any difference) So I’m hesitant to update because I don’t want to lose them!

    Hi Gina, I’m the author of the “Add Row Highlights” and “Hide Invites Box” scripts and I’ve just updated them to work with the latest version of gmail.

    Thanks for posting the update, Gina and Arend! Much appreciated.

    Special thanks to tha author of “Add Row Highlights.” When that feature stopped working for me it was an utter disaster. Thanks for updating.

    I’ve got the CSS for Hide Chat worked out. I haven’t used Better Gmail 2 or developed FF extensions, so I don’t know how much use it will be, but I could give you a set of styles to apply to Hide the Chat pane (or individual parts of it) easily enough. (looks like emailtoid.net already got Row Highlights and Hide Invites). Drop a not or an email if there’s anything I can do.

    Hey Gina, for some reason with the latest and greatest Better Gmail 2 extension installed I don’t have a fully secure connection. When I log in to Gmail it’s HTTPS, but after it loads it reverts back to HTTP. No idea why but after disabling Better Gmail 2 my connection stays HTTPS.

    Any thoughts??

    Hey stasnikiforov, great news, thanks! Getting the updates into Better Gmail 2 pronto.

    I’ve got the CSS for Hide Chat worked out.

    Awesome! Wanna post it here, or post it to userstyles.org?

    I removed force https from the latest version because it’s built into Gmail now. Hit up your settings to make sure it’s set there.

    Alright, here are the various bits I got.

    Unfortunately, granular access to the header is difficult through CSS since its classes and hierarchy are identical to the other panes (Labels and Invite-a-friend), and almost none of these elements have id attributes.

    Also, I think I’ve got this right but I’m not perfect yet. The style previously used in Better Gmail 2 used the !Important marker in the styles, that might need to be added. Each definition below does something different, I’ve put in comments above each.

    /* This one will take out the whole pane (no other styles required) */
    .nH.s
    {
    display:none;
    }

    /*The contact list*/
    .vB
    {
    display:none;
    }
    /*The Status area*/
    .uk
    {
    display:none;
    }
    /* The ‘Search, add, or invite’ input box */
    .dH
    {
    display:none;
    }

    /*The footer, with the Options dropdown and Add Contact.*/
    .ow
    {
    display:none;
    }

    /*This is just the Options dropdown button*/
    .oG
    {
    display:none;
    }

    /*This will remove the titles from ALL the panes*/
    .py
    {
    display:none;
    }

    Eek…sorry about the massively long formatting. I mean to copy & paste the condensed version, not the readability version…just wasn’t paying attention.

    Is there anything I can do if I want to keep the Collapsible Reader & Calendar integration that was removed in the 0.7.3 update?

    UnMicD–no problem, I can make that code work, thanks. 🙂

    Sure, check out the changelog, which links the standalone extension for that.

    Ok, the new version 0.7.3.2 (ack, out of control version numbers!) is now available.

    Awesome, thanks Gina! Looking forward to some posts pertaining to Macs. I recently got a new Macbook. 🙂
