Thanks to a tip in another thread I tested the problem with the original theme. I did and that solved the problem! The old theme was Nuvola 1.35, which I guess has problems. Thanks for the help!!

The author fixed the problem. D/L the beta from the bottom of the link if you want the updated copy of Compact Header:

I haven't really understood the extension and the worth of it. Can somebody share two screenshots and share the diff. between them so that dumb guys like me can understand. I also tried on the homepage to get a sense of the extension but didn't really get it.

Look forward to a lucid explanation of the above, also need to know how relevant it is in thunderbird 41.0

If you can tell me how to upload an image here I'd be happy to. It's the first one I install

Contact kerz (the admin) if you'd like to lobby for new features. I suggest you use the email link.

The compact header addon did not function at all in my TB 38.3.0 until I removed the addon then reinstalled a fresh copy. It's an essential addon, so I really missed it for a couple days!

Two questions: 1) When I enable the add-on, the headers pane in non-collapsed non-full-headers mode acquires a horizontal scrollbar that blocks a large chunk of the bottom of the pane. Switching to full-headers mode removes this scroll bar. What gives, man?

2) The 2.0.10 version seems to break compatibility with the Toggle Headers plugin. (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunde ... e-headers/) With 2.0.9, Toggle Headers would give you a hotkey to switch to full headers and un-compress the headers pane in one keystroke. It also remembered the previous setting, so you could re-collapse and switch to non-full headers again. I know it's not the (Compactheader) author's responsibility to maintain compatibility with older third-party plugins, but this was such a great feature that I'd really like to know a workaround (maybe keyconfig code?) to replace the functionality. In fact, I'm sticking with Thunderbird v31 just so that I can continue to run CH 2.0.9.

Hi,

I am the maintainer of the above mentioned Toggle Headers plugin and was trying to restore compatibility with CompactHeaders 2.1.0. However, I ran into the following problems.
I can reproduce this problem in CompactHeaders 2.1.0 but not 2.0.9 and also tried TB 38.3.0 (on Mac) with only CompactHeaders enabled (all other extensions disabled).

Steps to reproduce:

  • Headers set to Normal
  • Enable Compact
  • Change Headers to All
  • Result: Empty Header Pane
  • Change Headers to Normal
  • Result: Header pane visible but expanded (in the menu, the Compact option is still checked)

The same occurs if at the beginning, headers are set to All.

Can anyone else confirm this?

Previously (up to 2.0.9), toggling the headers between Normal and All would not change anything while Compact was enabled. The Toggle Headers extension took this into consideration. However, with 2.1.0, this does not work anymore. More specifically, it works to change from Compact & Normal to Non-Compact & All, however when switching back to Compact & Normal it results in the header pane not being collapsed (in the menu the Compact option is checked, though).

Thanks for the great plugin. I ran across a small UI bug: on my Mac, the configuration dialog is too small for the text. I suspect there is a Save/Ok button that is also cut off; I have to use escape to close the dialog:

I have been using CompactHeader for a long time, currently 2.1.0 with TB 38.7.2 (45.0 is not an option) on Win 7 Ult. x64.
I have always had a customized Header Toolbar with an additional "Mail Redirect" icon and everything worked perfectly.
I am not sure when things changed, but now the "Mail Redirect" icon disappears from the Header Toolbar when TB is restarted and has to be customized every time.
Changing themes (including the TB default) has no impact.
Placing the "Mail Redirect" icon on the main TB toolbar works fine, but I would prefer to have it on the Header Toolbar.
Not a major issue, but I would like to find a solution if possible.
