Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It is quite good. Unfortunately it doesn't support any 'old' Lightning icon. So when you are in the "Mail" tab you have the good old icons, while moving to "Calendar" tab you have the new standard (native) theme icons.

TB13 version, please Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've used this theme for some time and I like it. I'm holding back on upgrading to TB13 in the hope that the theme will be made compatible soon.

[later]
Now working perfectly with TB13 (see developer's comment below). Many thanks.

Done - check for add-on updates and you should be able to update to TB 13 without getting the theme changed :)

Awesome Theme Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A breath of relief Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm very happy to have found this theme that makes later versions of Thunderbird look and act much more intuitive. I'm not sure in what way the new text-buttons are supposed to be better, and it's been a struggle to not get annoyed with the new "default" theme because of mis-clicks, drab grey-on-grey, and overall simply not having a clear and orderly interface.

THANK YOU for keeping Thunderbird a pleasure to use!

Thank you very much for this great Add-on!
Now, with Ignore Aero + Rise of the Tools I'm happy again with the new version of Thunderbird. =)

Just by installing this theme, I can get TB11 menu bar back to the top maintaining the mail bar inside the tabs.

Still, I would prefer to keep the Aero style buttons instead of going back to TB3 style buttons.

Feel free to install another theme then, that's what the whole theme-thing was made for - every user selects the theme he likes the most ;)
Note that as you already pointed out in another rating there are userchrome hacks to archive what you want - without a theme change.

Exactly what I was looking for. Aero in places other than the title bar looks... horrid.

Great Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've been wishing I could somehow bring back the previous look of Thunderbird and found it. One of the things I liked of the old version Thunderbird was it reminded me of the look of the old Netscape Navigator of long ago ... thanks for giving us the option to go back to basics ... newer is not necessarily better.

appaernce de TB 3 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Très bon. Apparence de thunderbird 3. Un peu triste. Je préfère NoGlass qui garde les bons côté de TB3 mais garde aussi l'aspect relief de TB8.

blue background Rated 3 out of 5 stars

To get the blue background in mail toolbar with this theme installed / enabled, try the following.

This snipped of code seems to be working for me in TB8, close thunderbird & paste the following into your userChrome.css file

toolbox {background: #d3daed !important;}

save the file & re-launch thunderbird

Great! Fabulous! Superb! Ignore Aero is exactly what I was looking for. Normal line spacing, clear, high contrast icons with neat, but not tiring colours. I am amazed.

Download button missing for RSS content Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The download button in TB3 missing is missing for RSS feeds with attachments.
It's there for emails, but not for RSS feeds. This used to work in TB6.

Thank You

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.0.1). 

Fixed.

It is now (1.0.0.3) visible again, but disabled (Thunderbird does that, as this is also in default theme - don't ask me why). Thanks for your report!

UPDATE: The disabled button is a TB 7 bug, a fix is available at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/rss-attachment-fix/

Can I get a light blue background rather than grey? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks VERY much for this theme; I couldn't stand the too-dark blue background behind the toolbars and menus. I was wondering though if it's possible to change the new grey background to a light blue instead?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.0.1). 

From the technical side of view that shouldn't be a problem, but this theme is ment to stay compartible to all aero colors, so a blue background would go against the concept of this theme. Imagine you have red or green as aero color (so the transparent areas are tinted red / green instead of default blue), a blue background would ruin the design. But as this theme serves all modifications for the look you want except the blue tint, you could do the following:
Copy and paste the following into a file with the name "userChrome.css" (you have to display file extensions in Explorer to rename the extension) in a subfolder "chrome" of profile directory (see http://support.mozillamessaging.com/en-US/kb/profiles#w_how-to-find-your-profile for details how to find it):
.toolbox-top{background-image: -moz-linear-gradient(top, rgb(235,235,245), #EEE, rgb(230,230,230)) !important;}

I don't have a thunderbird to test here right now, feel free to send me an eMail if it doesn't work, I'll try to find another solution for you then.

Thank You Very Much!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank goodness! What was Mozilla thinking when they created their TB-5 theme? yuck! 5 stars for this theme and much thanks to the creator!!
