GmailChecker 2-step verification

Saturday, 21 September 2013

Due to some changes on Gmail's side, GmailChecker does not work with 2-step verification anymore. I'm looking into it and will release an update soon.

Update 31/10:

I've just fixed the login problem. Please try this version and report if it works for you. It'd be helpful if you can check for both standard gmail.com and Google for domains accounts.

I haven't fixed the 2-step verification problem yet though. Will take a bit more time.

More update:

I think I've fixed the login and 2-step verification problem. Please try this version and report if it works.

I've uploaded version 2.6.3, which fixes the login issues, to mozilla.org.

General Updates

Thursday, 25 April 2013

Apologies for the lack of updates because I've been pretty busy lately. I do read your comments though.

Just a quick response to some of your reported problems regarding Gmail Checker:

  • 2-step verification works fine on my end. If it doesn't work on your side. Please email me the debug log. Without the debug log, I've got no idea what the problem is.
  • Browser freeze when checking mail. This is unfortunately true if your system isn't fast enough. I wrote this extension a long time ago and Firefox didn't support multi-threaded extensions back then so all extensions and the browser had to run on the same thread. Background threading for extensions has been added to Firefox 4 [ref] so this issue is solvable. I just need time to implement this. Hopefully soon!
