Just updated to TB V78.2.2 and it seems it's no longer possible to customise which buttons are shown in the Message Pane. ( I want to remove "Junk" and add "Tag" ). Prior to V78 this could be achieved from a right click context menu, that now appears to have vanished...

Can this still be customised, and if so what new incantation do I need to learn?

Best Regards, Paul.

Ah... Many thanks, obviously not fully awake when I glanced through the release notes earlier today.

Yes, hopefully a fix will be forthcoming.

Best Regards, Paul.

Actually it can no longer be customized as a result of the enhancement request Bug 1535265 "Reduce the number of unnecessarily-customisable toolbars"

Many users are unhappy with this unnecessary change and maybe this feature will be reintegrated in a future version.
In the meantime I'm using the following CSS code to hide buttons I'm never using.

Code: Select all
   /*  hide certain MSG header buttons */
#otherActionsButton, #hdrJunkButton, #hdrReplyToSenderButton, #hdrArchiveButton {
display: none !important; }


This leaves the buttons Reply, Forward and Delete in my customized toolbar.

MailExtensions browserAction buttons don't persist and messageDisplayAction buttons don't customize. Nice.

browserAction buttons don't persist outside the default toolbar

Should be re-implemented to a built-in function, but I'll give the extension a trial run.

Thanks!
