  1. Graphics Library for Thunderbird/XPCOM

    In my extension I want to create Captcha images on the fly and send it by
    mail. Is there a possibility to use a graphics library to create jpegs or
    gifs from within Thunderbird?

    Not quite sure, but should be available in Thunderbird as well.

    Hi,

    it seems that Thunderbird doesn't support neither the canvas element nor
    svg (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=392166).

    Ok, thank you all for your help. As it seems, there's no way to solve this
    problem. For the first release of my extension I am going to include a set of
    captcha images within the extension package.

    Perhaps one day it will be possible to use JAVA-classes in Thunderbird
    Extensions, so that a JAVA application for generating images can be used.
