The new message header takes up too much space vertically and I don't want the toolbar attached to the message. I am happy with the original methos of deleting, printing, junking, etc.
I don't see those as improvements.
How about a test drive update before it takes effect?
Appreciate your reply giving me directions to remove the latest update.
CHAMP0Dawn, These are the changes I made to V3 to make it like V2. I actually don't like those feature you mentions either.
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.
However if you are determined to hop in the time machine. Version 2 can be downloaded here.
Note your passwords will all be lost in the process.
