  • (2021-06-20) Hasib Imam: Can you make it so when there is gmail background the colors doesnt get weird?
  • (2021-03-20) Bob Khan: I love this. Just one small problem,if i use a color background, there is a see through white strip at the top but with a plain white background it is fine.
  • (2018-12-04) Anthony Pilkjaer: Too broken to be used. Gmail interface became totally unusable
  • (2018-11-26) Tom Farmer: Thank you! The only visible thing I see "broken" is when you collapse the side menu with the hamburger menu. It still shows the icons and half of the Compose button when the menu is collapsed.
  • (2018-11-23) BodyCafe NZ: Awesome lifesaving extension, thanks team! That giant bold Roboto font was giving me a headache and along with the unnecessary label icons made the inbox look like a big screaming mess... Seriously Google? would it have been so hard to let us choose the layout we prefer?!...
  • (2018-11-21) Everything's Shiny: Just found a bug - it is not expanding some of my labels - these are for ones which have a lot of sub labels. It says "There are no messages with this label:. There is no workaround at present other than disable the extension. Please fix. So much better than the new Gmail abomination. Any chance you can fix the new "improved" Tasks functionality where they no longer support nested Tasks? Or is there another addon anywhere for this?
  • (2018-11-21) jesse zhao: A great plugin to restore original UI. the new Gmail UI just SUCKs.
  • (2018-11-19) TTeK SySTeMS: This Classic Gmail theme is just what the doctor ordered. Clearly shows how Google's new format pales in comparison to Classic Gmail. Google should fire their Gmail design team and hire the Agile inbox development team. Highly recommend this theme. Looking forward to future enhancements.
  • (2018-11-14) Getting rid of the hover action over the check box and star icon in the message list would make it better.
  • (2018-11-05) FamKis: Button text is almost invisible: https://i.imgur.com/diiyQZh.png

  • (2019-07-29, v: Matt Norriss: No Sub-folder drop down button.
    I can't recall if this happened just recently or not but currently with the Gmail classic extension enabled I can't access sub-folders, there is no button to drop the sub folders down. Work around for time being is to disable the extension where I can access the sub folders again, keep them permanently open and re-enable the extension.
  • (2018-11-26, v: Tom Farmer: "Broken" left menu
    The only visible thing I see "broken" is when you collapse the side menu with the hamburger menu. It still shows the icons and half of the Compose button when the menu is collapsed.
  • (2018-11-21, v: Everything's Shiny: Not expanding some of my labels
    This is for labels which have a lot of sub labels (around 50). It says "There are no messages with this label. There is no workaround at present other than disable the extension.
  • (2018-10-19, v:0.1.3) Neal Wolff: Inline reply box border disappears/absent
    The frame disappears from the in-line reply window when using the "Tree" theme from Google. It (sometimes) appears again if you go to another window https://imgur.com/5tEkVWA Thanks, great implementation
  • (2018-10-17, v:0.1.3) A beginner's question: how to use the extension?
    I installed the extension in Chrome, opened Gmail, but I don't see any difference. Do I have to go to "settings" or "themes" or anything in order to activate the Classic extension?
  • (2018-10-16, v:0.1.3) Edmund Ondez: Foldera and sub Folders
    Hello Can u update that the main folder and sub folders to close down and open up? It doesnt work.
  • (2018-10-15, v:0.1.3) Superplay64: Button Coloring Issue With Custom Themes
    So, I don't know if this is caused by the plugin alone or not, but my custom theme causes the upper buttons' text to become white and hardly readable. (https://bit.ly/2OYhrTf) The default theme works just fine, so I know it's with my own theme. If this isn't fixable due to themes like this being custom and highly variable, that's fine, I just might have to pick a different image, but I did want to bring it up in case it actually is a resolvable issue. Otherwise this plugin is awesome! Thanks, -SP64
  • (2018-10-14, v:0.1.3) Matt Norriss: Classic Bookmarks?
    Hi, I'm so glad to have found your extension for classic Gmail, it is perfect. I was wondering if you had any plans to do a classic bookmarks? A classic Gmail and Bookmarks would be so great! Look forward to any news... Cheers!
  • (2018-10-12, v:0.1.3) m Long: Label Colour Reset
    Hi, Label colours will not reset to "removed". From the last bug report, I tested using the label colours, but now if I try to removed them, when I hit refresh, they default back to the first colour I used.
  • (2018-10-12, v:0.1.3) Sierras Blaze: like your extension! question-how to re arrange buttons along top ie; spam/delete/archive etc.? Thanks!
