well, from what i can tell, this has been requested many many times over the years. unfortunately, the Tb threadpane tree code is a custom (vs. xul) type of tree; it was done this way to optimize very large lists. it's complex, might need to get into the c++ code so harder for an extension to do it, and could be a lot of work to do what seems like a small UI enhancement.

This is the type of enhancement that is (as alta88) said more appropriate if done on the actual thunderbird code. I think this could be done given the recent improvements to the richlistbox implementation on trunk (e.g. listheader support).

Is this thread the appropriate place for me to add that enhancement to the wish list ?

Btw, is there a way to save the width of the stackedview ?

Cause I enlarge it and resize colums under thread pane, but when I restart firefox, it doesn't saves the last width...

There is a wishlist thread in the Thunderbird Features forum. If there isn't, you can start one.

Um, I don't think this extension works in Firefox.

I noticed the wide thread view screenshot isn't working on your <a href="http://morelayoutsforthunderbird.mozdev.org/screenshots.html">screenshots</a> page.
Your html wants to load /Widethread.jpg, but the filename is lowercase <a href="http://morelayoutsforthunderbird.mozdev.org/widethread.jpg">/widethread.jpg</a>.

You're making lots of friend with the lightning 0.8 - fix, thanks...

Mmm, toggling the full-screen uses F11 as did toggling the today-pane. Maybe change the key?

well, if it were any other key for any other function, i would. but F11 is well know to be Fullscreen in Fx, and i think that should be kept across products. eventually i would like to add all this functionality as default in Tb.

i'll open up a bug requesting Today Pane toggle be changed to F12 or something and see what they say.

the keyconfig extension can always be used to override keys as well.

Beta version 2.0pre is available for Thunderbird 3.0a1 and higher only. Please report any issues. Note that Lightning development is not focused on Tb3 at the moment, so while the existing code for it has been left in, it is completely untested.

Guess he means Thunderbird.
I have the same question.
The position isn't saved on exit.

Didn't work.

    hmm, you're right. if you edit [profile]\extensions\morelayoutsforthunderbird@mozdev.org\chrome\content\morelayouts.js, and change line 47 from:
    Code: Select all
      const dynamicMessagePaneBoxFlex = [1, 0, 1, 1, 1];

    to:
    Code: Select all
      const dynamicMessagePaneBoxFlex = [1, 0, 1, 1, 0];

    does that solve it? not sure how that regressed, but it's correct in the Tb3 version. v1.4 is meant to be end of the line for Tb2; although it's not really correct to do this, i'll have to leave this edit as the fix rather than release a new Tb2 version, mostly because the code is already set up for Tb3..
