I fixed the impact of the last Gmail change that stopped GTDInbox loading, and it was embarrassingly trivial (just a line of code to change!). So I took the opportunity to add a new ’emergency traffic light’ feature – an amber or red bulb that can be remotely activated if there is a problem in the future. It’s really for those who otherwise would not read the blog, as a means to reassure regular users that “we know GTDInbox may be having problems, and we are working on it”, and to help them manually download a patch.

You can manually install the new release from http://gtdinbox.com/gtdinbox_2-0-5.xpi

I forget sometimes that not everyone has manually installed the XPI before – sorry!
Fortunately, it is quite straight forward. This is the really safe way of doing it:

  1. Download the above .xpi file to your computer
  2. In Firefox, click ‘Tools’ and then ‘Addons’.
  3. In the window that pops up, select GTDInbox and click ‘Uninstall’
  4. Restart Firefox
  5. In Firefox, click ‘File’ and then ‘Open File’
  6. Select the .xpi that you just downloaded
  7. Click ‘Open’
  8. The normal installation routine should now begin…
