Brilliant extension, combined with a theme that kills the Chrome-style title-bar, Thunderbird is now usable. You have helped save my sanity.

Thanks a lot - I have based my own extension "Menu On Top" on your code, so this gave me a great head start. Personally I like the tools close to the window contents, but I absolutely despise having the menu there all the time; so thanks for a good tool idea with a great restartless execution.

This user has a previous review of this add-on.

A good extension! Thank You!

Great to have the menu bar back on top again. Wish it had the option to have the tool bar below the tabs, but can't have everything I suppose. Still better than the tabs on top.

Without add-on

What you want is possible without an add-on: create a folder "chrome" in your profile folder and add a file named "userChrome.css" with the following content:

#mail-toolbar-menubar2 {
-moz-box-ordinal-group: 10 !important;
}
#tabs-toolbar {
-moz-box-ordinal-group: 30 !important;
}

However, this add-on is required for moving the tool bar, as it is not moveable via userChrome. If you don't want to move your toolbar, you shouldn't need it ;)

If you struggle creating the userChrome, look at this article: http://kb.mozillazine.org/UserChrome.css

Must-have:fixes elements of the interface shuffled around for no sensible reason.

Does the job Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I can't find a good point (or a point for that matter) to getting the tab bar over the tool bar, but I can understand some people might find it better for themselves. then let us have *the choice* to toggle the position *to our liking*.isn't that what open source is all about ?

Works great in TB17esr Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you so much! This is just what I was looking for.With this extension the design of my TB17 is handsome again :)
I really hope you will continue to develope / adapt this to the coming versions.

Super! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Einfach klasse!

My old about:config fix didn't work for Thunderbird 15 anymore, but your addon does the trick--thank you for fixing bugs Thunderbird developers building into the software!

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works fine but I would like to see one thing added ... it only handles the default tool bar ... it does not handle any additional tool bars that you add... other than that it is great.

I know that it does not handle other toolbars, and I made it that way for a reason: you can have a toolbar(s) for the mail tab only if you want to. This possibility would not exist if I would move all toolbars.

I understand that this answer does not help you directly, but maybe you can understand why I did it that way. I currently do not have the time for complex solutions like letting the user select toolbars, as I have some other projects I'm working on (and a real life, which is time consuming, too :P). However, I added this to my (long) todo list. Thanks for your feedback!

Schönes Add-on, gute Arbeit! Tut genau das was es sollte, endlich sind die Tabs wieder da wo sie sein sollten.

Kleiner Schönheitsfehler: Oberhalb der Toolleiste entsteht eine weisse Linie (Auch auf dem Screenshot zu sehen). Nichts gravierendes/störendes, doch würde mich interessieren ob es eine Möglichkeit gibt diese zu entfernen.

Ich persönlich mag die Linie (wobei ich zugebe, darüber fehlt eine dunklere Linie... mir irgendwie nie aufgefallen. Muss aber im Theme geändert werden, nicht in Rise of the Tools), würde mal sagen Geschmacksfrage ;) (Edit: Habe eine neue Fassung von IgnoreAero hochgeladen, die die Linie nun korrekt doppelt zieht: https://addons.mozilla.org/thunderbird/addon/ignore-aero/versions/1.0.1.1) Außerdem würde eine solche Änderung natürlich auch auf andere Themes wirken, wenn ich sie in Rise of the Tools integriere.
Deshalb werde ich die Linie nicht entfernen, jedoch ist es möglich die Benutzeroberfläche frei anzupassen, indem man eine Datei namens "userChrome.css" im Unterverzeichnis "chrome" des Profilverzeichnisses erstelt; I.d.R. muss auch das Verzeichnis "chrome" neu erstellt werden.
Weitere Informationen: http://kb.mozillazine.org/UserChrome.css

Füge in diese Datei folgenden Code ein, um die Linie zu entfernen:

#mail-bar3{
border-top: 0 !important;
}

Problem with Ubuntu Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Doesn't work well with Ubuntu's Unity desktop. The menu items should be hidden in Ubuntu's top panel but are instead ever present inside of Thunderbird. Spoils an otherwise effective add-on.

I don't use unity, so it is quite hard for me to follow your text. Could you make a screenshot?
How can menu items get hidden in a top panel not belonging to the application; isn't that part of the desktop manager and/or widgets only? Did that work with previous Thunderbird versions / does that work without the add-on installed?

Great Add-on!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you!!!!

This add-on is great, it puts everything where it should be.

To the rescue! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I really did not like Thunderbird's arbitrarily moving the tabs above the toolbar without providing any way to turn that off. Rise of the Tools comes to the rescue and provides the means of getting the appearance of the window back to what I consider normal.

Thanks for this!

There's a special place in hell for all doofus devs who think they know how I want to use my computer better than I do! (They'll be sitting at a desk, coding. And all their semi-colons will move, and they'll have to move them all back. Over and over. Every day. Forever.) Grrr.

Excellent! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you for this add-on, as it fixes the thing that annoyed me most in the recent TB upgrades. I can't understand why the developers think tabs-on-top is so incredible that it must be forced on everyone. It moves the identifying label away from the content it's about.

Great add-on, and works perfectly with the Noia theme on my system.

Not working with T.B. 12.0 could you update thanks for a nice addon

Missed that one

... sorry but I missed updating, as usually the version is adjusted automatically. In my TB 12 installation it worked (seems the compartibility detection didn't :P ) so I did not notice the issue. Thanks, should be fixed now.

Thanks for giving us a choice Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I certain do hope we are not seeing an example of "WIndows Mentalitly" whereas the user is no longer given a choice. I am one of those who HATES tabs on top and orginally migrated to Linux and Mozilla because they were about CHOICE. Please Mozilla .. let the user decide. I would hate to have to go looking for yet another email client. Thanks

Gute Idee - Erzeugt bei mir leider fehlerhafte Darstellung Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Hoffe, dass dies behoben werden kann.
Habe Fehlerinformationen an Entwickler geschickt.

Aus diesen zwei Halbsätzen wird mir leider nicht wirklich klar was dein Problem ist. Ich möchte in diesem Rahmen auf zwei Dinge hinweisen:
1. Bewertungsfunktion ist für Bewertungen, nicht für Fehlerberichte. Verwende die angegebene eMail-Adresse, wenn du einen Bug findest oder einen Verbesserungsvorschlag loswerden willst. Siehe dazu auch: https://addons.mozilla.org/de/review_guide
2. Ein Add-on wird von simplem "funktioniert nicht" nicht besser werden. Vielleicht ist es dir nicht klar, aber hinter jedem Add-on stehen Entwickler, die sich häufig für Fehlerberichte interessieren, um das Add-on langfristig zu verbessern. Man ist in gewissen Grenzen sogar darauf angewiesen, da es nicht möglich ist, alle Kombinationen der Einstellungen und von anderen Add-ons durchzutesten. Wenn du dir also die Mühe machst dein Problem sauber darzulegen, hilfst du der langfristigen Entwicklung - und dein Problem wird vermutlich gelöst.

So, wie du dein Problem "schilderst", müsste ich antworten: "Für mich schon." Bringt das irgendwen weiter?

EDIT: Danke für deine Unterstützung, wie bereits per eMail besprochen ist dein Problem eine Folge von Bug 748555
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=748555
Vermutlich wird das Problem direkt in Thunderbird angegangen werden, da es auch ohne dieses Add-on auftritt (dann aber an anderen Stellen) und in einer der nächsten Versionen gelöst sein.

Thank you for this useful Add-on and quick bugfix!
Now also icons and text works perfect, so there isn't any problem an you have well-earned 5 stars.
