Just started Thunderbird 60.7.0 with Compact Header 2.1.6 on Debian Buster. The header is not compacted, and there is no little plus or minus in the top left corner to do the job. It worked fine yesterday and there was absolutely no changes which I can think of.

I just tested it using Windows, and it seems to work. Was the addon deactivated automatically? Have you tried (re)installing it (e. g. from the search within the addon manager)?

Any plans for this working with Thunderbird 68?

I tried it with the TB68b2 and it won't install. No wonder so many addon Devs have simply given up because the Moz Devs keep changing an breaking things.

Thank you for quick updating!

I Installed and tested version 3.0.0beta2 with Thunderbird 69.0b2 x64 on WIn10 1903 x64.

It works, however, labels of buttons are shown.

This is a problem of Thunderbird itself, because the header pane toolbar cannot be customized anymore. So I now hard coded the buttons to only show icons in compact view.

I've found a minor bug in version 3.0.0beta3 on TB 68.2.0 (on Arch Linux if that matters).

When CompactHeaders is enabled it's not possible to drag new buttons onto the message pane when customizing the toolbar - it's possible to drag them OFF but it refuses to add new buttons. The main toolbar works fine, it's just the message window that's awry.

This is from memory,so I'm not sure exactly what versions of either Tbird or the extension I'm remembering. But I believe there were separate buttons for Reply or Reply All (the Reply All button was suppressed when there was only one recipient). And as I recall, there was only one Forward button, which just took the default action for forwarding inline or as an attachment.

It appears that the current version (3.0.0beta3) under Tbird 68.2.1 now has an option dropdown on the Forward button to select inline vs attachment, yay! :D But it has removed the ability to specify Reply vs Reply All, boo! :cry: As far as I can tell, in order to get a Reply All, you have to resort to the keyboard and use Ctrl-Shift-R. Can you please bring back the choice - doesn't matter to me whether it's a separate button as it was previously, or is an option dropdown as used on the Forward button.

Thanks!

I tested this with 68.2.2 and I was able to add buttons to the toolbar. Perhaps it helps to restore the default first?

You should be able to modify the buttons shown in the toolbar in the header by right cliking on one of the buttons and then select customize.
