What is the "GMX Mail Checker" add-on and how can I use it?
This extension is meant to notify the user of unread email in gmx.com's inbox. Basically, the extension displays a badge text when gmx.com's inbox has unread emails. Note that this extension is also checking emails on all other mailbox folders as well. To get details, place your mouse over the toolbar button. Since this extension does not save the user credentials, it relies on the last visited session and uses this session-id to communicate with gmx.com. If there is no active session, the user can click on the toolbar area and let the extension open the login page. When the login process is passed, the extension uses the session-id and periodically fetches the number of unread emails from the gmx server. You can click on the toolbar area to directly open the gmx.com's inbox folder.
This extension alters the reported GEO location by your browser. You can provide your custom latitude and longitude to any website to improve privacy or get localized data from a custom location. This extension is also useful if you have a SOCKS proxy on your browser to have a consistent IP address with the GEO data. Read more here.

What is the meaning of the "x" in the badge area of this extension?
By default, the badge area is the place to display the total number of unread emails in the inbox folder when the extension finds a valid session-id. If for any reason, the session-id is not found or the session-id is expired, then the "x" badge is displayed to notify the user that there is no active session to be used. A user can always click on the toolbar button to get redirected to the login page and to create a new active session.
How can I get information about the unread emails of other directories rather than the inbox one?
This extension fetches the total number of unread emails in all directories. The report is available as a tooltip for the toolbar button. In this report, the number of unread emails in each folder is displayed in a new line in front of the folder name.
Why does this extension need to access my browsing history?
This extension needs to use the session-id to access your folder structure in the server-side. Basically, the extension queries the gmx.com browser history to find the latest matching session-id. This identification string is used to communicate with the server. Note that this extension does not have any server-side interaction instead of fetching the folder structure from gmx.com's server. This method is used to eliminate the need to have the credentials for checking the user's inbox.
