Watch for your Google apps mail and report to you in status-bar.

Check Google apps mail at specific interval ( 1 min, 2 min, 3 min, 4 min, 5 min, 10 min, 15 min, 20 min, 30 min, 1 hour or manually).

Multiple domain name checking is supported (Up to 3 domain names)

Can select to alert by sound, by notification window or by blinking icon.

Can select to alert only inbox or all labels (except Sent, Drafts, Spam and Trash).

Can select to alert unread email or newly arrived email (by increasing unread email count method).

Sound can be selected to be "build-it" or "system" (control panel setting) or "custom sound".

Use secure protocol - HTTPS-SSL to connect to Google apps mail server. Safe from eavesdroppers.

No unnecessary action take. Simple is the rule

High security. No need to input username and password. Nothing (except domain name) storage.

This extension use Browser cookie to get information. So, security level is the same as Google apps mail website security.

This extension work only after you input domain name data and log on at the Google apps mail website. As long as you stay log on, this extension still work.

If you log out from Google apps mail website, this extension log out too !

Google apps mail watcher does not work on normal Gmail. Please use Gmail watcher instead.

Google apps mail watcher work independently with Gmail watcher. By using both extension together, you can check both normal Gmail and Google apps mail at the same time.

Private browsing mode compatibility. "Google apps mail Watcher" will not leave any traces after you stop private browsing. Even new domain names that are used during private browsing mode will also be deleted.

Trustworthy because "Google apps mail watcher" is the open source extension. You can check it by yourself that there is no backdoor or any harmful things inside (Note: Mozilla require you to log in before you can view the source online).

How to Use

Left click at the icon on the status-bar to reset counter and open Google apps mail website.

Right click at the icon on the status-bar to open popup menu to change options.

Middle click at the icon on the status-bar to check email now.

Working with Filter

Alert only Inbox: please select "Count only Inbox" option.

Alert all email (except Sent, Drafts, Spam and Trash): Do not select "Count only Inbox" option.

Alert Inbox and some specific label/folder: please select "Count only Inbox" option. Then uncheck "Skip the Inbox (Archive it)" in the filter of that label/folder. These emails will go to both inbox and your applied label.


Toolbar button can be activated, especially useful when the status-bar is disable. Please go to View --> Toolbars --> Customize (or right click at the blank area on address bar) and drag the button to the browser toolbar area that you like.

Toolbar button can also be selected to show limited unread email counter (number 1-9 and 10+)


This extension don't need login information but need cookie. So, it may not work if Firefox don't allow cookie. To enable it, on Firefox menu, please select tools --> options --> Privacy tab, add see at...
1) Accept cookies from sites
2) Accept third-party cookies
Both of them must be checked for my extension to work... Or you must add an exception (if you want to restrict the cookie acception).

To add exception, please click Exceptions... On "Address of web site", please add "google.com" and select "Allow" (or "Allow for Session" if you want to automatic log off every time you quit Firefox).

Developer Comments

The purpose that I make this Add-on is "security". Please do not ask me to include "Log in feature". Because I don't want to be the cause of leakage of your storage username and password!

Checking email often than 3 minutes can cause DoS attack (Denial-of-service attack) to Google apps mail server.
