OK, on Windows, how do I get the normal Windows titlebar back? Not all of us need to cram our messages into every possible pixel. Right now, the menubar is in the upper left. If I turn that off, then the toolbar takes the whole top of the window. I don't use tabs and can't find any tabs options.

I did an upgrade from 16.x to 17.0. The picture above is what my screen looks like.

Hmmm...
quote:
By default, Thunderbird 17 replaces the Menu Bar (the toolbar with the File, Edit and View menus) with a new Thunderbird Menu button.
It doesn't seem to "Get Rid" of the default menu bar in the Linux version of Thunderbird 17, it's still check-marked when you right click on the toolbar.

Although I DO like the fact you can pick customize & move it where you want. I just unchecked Menu Bar & dragged the menu symbol & put it in front of Get Mail on the Mail Toolbar.

In about:config just set mail.tabs.drawInTitlebar to false and the titlebar will be back.

Thanks. Took a bit to figure out how to get about:config in TBird, but found it and made the change. Took effect immediately.

Sorry that I wasn't more specific. About:config is a very powerful way to change many things in Firefox and Thunderbird. I use it all the time.

I've used about:config many times in Firefox (disabled 2D acceleration as it screwed up some pages and messed up my Nautipolis bookmarks spacing), but not in TBird. I had to do a bit of Googling to find out it's in Tools/Options/Advanced, General tab, then 'Config Editor...' button. I guess it shouldn't really be called about:config when referring to TBird!

You're right, I plain forgot that it is in the tools. I use it so much for Firefox, but not very often with TBird.

I don't know if TBird developers read this, but this should be a setting you can change in the options. Anything that highly modifies a standard window should be easily defeatable without having to dig into dangerous areas.
