Lightning 0.8 trashed my T-Bird's window configuration Rated 1 out of 5 stars

BE AFRAID. Be VERY afraid!!!

CON: I was using 0.7 Today Auto-Update told me 0.8 was available, so I installed it. BIG MISTAKE!!!

I lost:
1) the Task Bar at the bottom of the Thunderbird window

2) the ability to scroll all of the way to the bottom of my Local Folders in the All Folders frame, if I have T-Bird in less than Full-screen.

3) the Mode buttons at the bottom of the All Folders frame.

I uninstalled L-0.8 and everything, listed above, came back.

So I tried to revert to Lightning 0.7
When I installed 0.7, I was informed that my Lightning data had been converted for use with a newer version and was no longer compatible with 0.7, so 0.7 would be disabled. I tried to enable 0.7 anyway, but no buttons or options could be found.

Somebody didn't test L-0.8 very well!!!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8).
