New look & feel

I really prefer the look and feel of previous versions. The cut & paste features are particularly annoying, as I have to delete the automatic feature to paste in a way that I prefer.

I can't see how many "read" files I have in folders, either.

I have always used Mozilla products, and love the company. I'm keeping Thunderbird, but I'm not in love with it.

  • There are a number of changes that can be made to the look and feel of Thunderbird Version 3.x.x that make it more like the version 2 interface.

    If the large header pane on messages with the new reply button in the header is not for you. Install the Compact header add on.

    Following this install you will need to customise the toolbar to put the Reply Delete etc buttons on the main Toolbar as they will disappear when the addon reduces the header to the old view. To do this right click the Toolbar, select customise and drag the buttons you want to the toolbar.

    Missing message count in folder view can be cured by installing the Extra Folder Columns addon.

    Folder view can be changed to ALL from unified it you don't like the new unified appearance with all in-boxes clumped together. Simply select the View | Folders menu.

  • Thank you VERY much, Matt,
    I have another question -
    My sister-in-law is now using Thunderbird. She has 2 accounts set up, and wants them separate in that she doesn't want the 2nd account to have access to her 1st account's address book. Can this be done, and can the 1st account be password protected from the 2nd account?

    thank you in advance,
    Bobby
