I would really like to have this feature. However, I see only one remaining feature on my list that requires string changes - meaning that string freeze is approaching very fast. Most likely, I'll give a build to translators Sunday evening. If nobody comes up with a good way to show these buttons in the filter composer this feature won't make the next release.
To start a discussion, some options:
- "All" and "None" links to the right of "Apply to types" - will work fine in English but the translations will almost certainly be longer, this will waste horizontal space
- Same but below "Apply to types", with a little indentation - better space usage but probably not very obvious
- Checkbox that selects everything when checked and unselects everything when unchecked (what would be the label?) - would need a third state for partial selection but XUL doesn't have tri-state checkboxes
- Buttons "Select all" and "Select none" - would need to be displayed on one row, waste of horizontal space again (especially when translated)
