         <li> Find Duplicates (Thunderbird only): This button is a powerful tool to detect filters that might do the same (and they might also be candidates for

   <h4 class="header">Naming Rules</h4>
   <p>quickFilters automatically generates filter names, so it is important to be consistent:</p>
   </ul>
           <li>Disable two-way address conditions - by default the templates "Based on Sender" and "Based on Recipient" 
               will fill in two conditions, from XXX and to XXX. This is so whole conversations can be filtered 
                           (including your personal replies) and moved to a folder. This is especially helpful when using 
                           the "Copy Sent to Current" addon, and avoids messages being "orphaned" in the Sent Mail folder.</li>
     <li>Add parent folder name. Default:on.</li>
     <li>Add rule specific key word. Default:off.</li>
           <li>Append to name of cloned filter - to avoid confusion when creating multiple versions of the same filter. Default: "(copy)"</li>
   </ul>
   <p>Debug Mode: Use this for trouble shooting. With this option enabled quickFilters will print information in the Javascript Console.
   The console can be shown via tools &gt; error console. Additional log detail can be switched on via right-click on the checkbox.</p>
