In seamonkey 2.0.x the file size display used to show in kb no matter what size, so the decimals would line up, and it was easy to spot large emails (used underlines to line up the figures)
_771 kb
__44 kb
3100 kb
4700 kb
__26 kb


In 2.1B2pre the size display goes like this
771 kb
44.4 kb
3.1 mb
4.7 mb
26.4 kb

How do you spot the large emails in that list????

Any time a field that should be justified, & is not, or is illogically laid out, is just ludicrous IMO.

(My tagline in other forums reads "BANK OF AMERICA.COM ONLINE BANKING SUCKS IN THE HUGEST WAY IMAGINABLE" for similar reasons. They took what was easy to understand - basically a column for pluses <generally deposits> & a column for minuses <generally checks>, that was extremely easy to use & make sense of, & changed to a singular column layout & tacked on some hieroglyphics to turn what was very good into something that SUCKS IN THE HUGEST WAY IMAGINABLE ;-).)

Thunderbird introduced that change in https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=516787 but Neil signed off on it for MailNews Core, so SeaMonkey implicitly agreed to the change. I've added him to the CC list of your bug, maybe there is a way to make both camps happy (though suggesting to introduce yet another preference may ask for trouble, we'll see).

I'm totally amazed all the attention this one is getting!!!

Such things as nonfunctional MAPI (send-to), non-functional Lightning, and missing Advanced Search are SOOO much more important!!!

:roll: Think I've got a workaround based on Lemon Juice's comment, I'll post it soon.

Edit: comment #14

This thread is old, but as an update for anybody following it: There is now an extension available for download, https://addons.mozilla.org/seamonkey/addon/size-in-kb/, which has preliminary review at this point only and is thus marked as experimental.
