Gmail Manager for Firefox not working? here's the fix.

Shamelessly stolen from https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/gmail-manager/reviews/ part way down the page.

So originally when this broke a few days ago I did Xander/Divirsit's fix and it seemed to work good. However earlier today I noticed that it stopped letting me left click on the user account and correctly pull up the gmail mailbox in a new tab. It would always redirect me to the gmail login page instead of auto logging in like it always did.. I ended up modifying the link in gmServiceGmail.js as follows:

this._loginURL = "https://www.google.com/accounts/ServiceLoginAuth";
should be changed to this
this._loginURL = "https://accounts.google.com/ServiceLoginAuth";

After I changed that I can now click on a mailbox from gmail manager and it launch the mailbox fully logged in like usual. If anyone else started having this same problem today try the above change, hopefully it works..

I'm hoping the dev picks back up this add-on or maybe we'll have to repackage it and release it soon under a different name.

Implemented and worked for me. You need to restart Firefox before it'll take effect.

Here is simple solution. If you dont want to do this, you can install fixed version "Gmail Manager NG"
1. Browse to C:\Users\YOUR USER NAME\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\A RANDOM CODE IS HERE.default\extensions\
2. Locate the file {582195F5-92E7-40a0-A127-DB71295901D7}.xpi, rename it to {582195F5-92E7-40a0-A127-DB71295901D7}.zip and extract the files to a temporary location.
3. Open the components folder, look for the file gmServiceGmail.js and use a text editor to modify this 1 line:
loginURL = “https://www.google.com/accounts/ServiceLoginAuth”;
should be changed to:
loginURL = “https://accounts.google.com/accounts/ServiceLoginAuth?service=mail”;
4. Save the file, overwrite the existing gmServiceGmail.js
5. Open the file install.rdf with a text editor and change the line:
4.0.*
to
6.0.*
6. Save the file, overwrite the existing install.rdf.
7. Rezip all files you extracted in step 2 and name it {582195F5-92E7-40a0-A127-DB71295901D7}.xpi
8. Replace the old {582195F5-92E7-40a0-A127-DB71295901D7}.xpi for the 1 you just adjusted and restart FireFox
