Hi,
Does anyone know how to remove the part "Compose:" in the compose window title ? Or how to have this part appear at the END of the title so that in the taskbar the messages being composed do not all have the same useless title (Compose : titl...) when many windows are opened and the space in the taskbar is limited ? I found a add-on that customizes the main window title, which has no use to me since i have only one main window, but found nothing that controls the title of a compose windows, of which i have many opened at once. Any help anyone ?
thx

SK.

I don't think there is anything you can do to modify that.

Go to Thunderbird's installation directory, then to the chrome directory there.

Create a new plain text file named custom-strings.txt and in the file write this one line:
Code: Select all
chrome%3A//messenger/locale/messengercompose/composeMsgs.properties#windowTitlePrefix=

Restart Thunderbird to make it take effect. (Very little of the text in the user interface can be customized in this way.)

Rod, this solution does not seem to work with TB 3.* (It uses "Write:" instead of "Compose:" but the problem is the same). I tried applying this method without success. Can you help? Thanks!
