Since installing the latest update, the end of the menu bar is laying under the page controls at top right, obscuring the Tools and Help items. I can't correct this with the customising options and wonder whether it's a bug or a fault at my end. Any advice would be welcome.

Does the same thing occur if you launch the application in Mozilla Safe Mode? http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_mode

See if the same problem occurs in safe mode (help -> restart with add-ons disabled). It might be due to a add-on that doesn't work correctly with 60.*.

http://kb.mozillazine.org/Toolbar_or_wi ... ot_working might help if its due to a corrupted file.

The CustomizeMyBird add-on at https://addons.thunderbird.net/en-US/th ... izemybird/ can change several toolbars and controls position. I'm using it mainly just to change how the the scrollbars look and to round the corners of tabs. Are you using that add-on?

It doesn't occur in safe mode because the menu items appear at top left on a separate line from the message options.

I'm not using the customizing add-on; would it help?

I don't think the CustomizeMyBird add-on would help with that. I suggest you start by deleting the Xulstore.json file per http://kb.mozillazine.org/Toolbar_or_wi ... ot_working .

Thanks so much for pointing me in the right direction. Just clicking the Restore Default Set button put the Menu Bar back to the left. It stays there even after repersonalising the Mail Bar and exiting Thunderbird, so no need to delete the xulstore.json file. Happy!
