Gmail Delete Button

15 06 2005

gmail-delete-button.pngEverybody’s biggest gripe with Gmail is the lack of a delete button, there’s no question about that. Well, no more, if you’re using Firefox, thanks once more to a cute little Greasemonkey script:

Arantius.com – Greasemonkey User Scripts – Gmail Delete Button: “I’m having fun writing greasemonkey user scripts! For the uninitiated, greasemonkey is a Firefox extension that lets one modify a web page with javascript in powerful ways. Here’s another one based off of the request wiki. It puts a delete button next to the archive button, and performs a ‘Move to trash’ action when clicked.”

Don’t install it!

the script works like a charm, but

I got locked out temporarily (don’t know for how long yet) cause gmail is anal.
Too bad they limit you from making their own app better, who ever uses the f**cking archive button, delete is the most common operation.

Got this explanation:
Hello,

Our system has detected abnormal usage of your Gmail account. As a result, we have temporarily disabled access to this account.

It will take between one minute and 24 hours for you to regain access, depending on the behavior our system detected.

Your account may be temporarily disabled if, among other things, you are:

– sending or receiving an excessive volume of mail

– using any third-party software that automatically logs in to your account and is not supported by Gmail

– using certain browser extensions that change the behavior of a website (Greasemonkey, a popular Firefox extension, often interferes with Gmail.
We suggest disabling Greasemonkey to use Gmail without any issues.)

For your protection, we ask that you disable any non-supported software before accessing Gmail again.

If you feel that access to this account should not have been disabled, please respond to the following questions:

1. List the date and time of day when you were locked out of the account.

2. What task were you performing when you were locked out? (ex: sending an email, downloading an attachment, etc.)

3. Has access to your account been disabled before this occurrence? If so, when and for how long?

4. Indicate which of the following, if any, Gmail features you use: POP, auto-forwarding, or Gmail’s Notifier

5. Are you using any type of browser extensions? If so, please specify.

6. Do you use any third-party software in conjunction with Gmail? If so, please specify.

Sincerely,

The Gmail Team

Really anal. Fortunately I usually read my Gmail inbox via POP and only occasionally log onto the web interface, select a bunch of messages I’ve already deleted from my POP client and delete them in batch, so the lack of a delete button is not much of an issue for me.

Thanks for your input, anyway.

Prova questo: http://kuru4u.spymac.com/scripts/Gmail_Smart-Delete_Button.user.js, io uso GMail abbastanza spesso e non mi ha mai creato problemi… se non quando hanno cambiato le URL…
