Rated 5 out of 5 stars

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!

Recent linux update to TB24 schmucked my Oxygenate theme to the stupid very hard to read monocolour icons - why can't they just leave them alone.

Next day, this addon theme auto-updated and I'm back to something reasonable!

THANK YOU!

Perfect Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This theme which is based on the icons in TB3 Classic, suits perfectly on Thunderbird 24.1.
Thank you for updating...

beautiful and ergonomic Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A clear and light weight theme with buttons easy to identify.
I miss buttons for lightning.
Thank you very much.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.0). 

Thanks for the info on lightning - I don't use it, so I never noticed the missing icons. I will look into adding support.

Отлично Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Отличный интерфейс, без глюков, хорошо вписывается в интерфейс Windows 8. Только шрифты мелковаты для 24" монитора.

My favorite.
Thank you very much for the TB17 update.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is the best, with only one drawback. I can't move the window around the screen I have to change the theme to another - move to where I want it, then return to the theme. I'm using W7 x64

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.0). 

Should be fixed in version 1.2.0

The new version can be downloaded manually now, or will update automatically in a few days when the review is complete. Let me know how it works!

A great disappointment due to the fact that it is not being updated Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I liked this theme. It was good while it lasted. Unfortunately, it has been broken since the release of TB 17 (large grey area under the title bar), and by now it seems clear that it is not being updated. The closest working theme that I have found is xpDefault, which is regularly updated. I would recommend it to anyone who used to use Classic TB2.

=====

PS: I am adding this after the developer's reply below. First of all, thanks to Corey for replying less than 24 hours after I posted my review. I agree that it's only been a week since TB17 came out, but since the notice that the add-on is still in development was only posted after my comments, I think that my doubts about the extension's future were understandable, especially since the theme was immediately broken with the new TB release.

Since I am responsible for the TB installations of a group of people (most of whom wouldn't recognize an add-on if it spoke to them in the street), I need to give them certainties. To say, "Things will be updated shortly" is acceptable; to say "I don't know what's happening" is not. At that point I have to advise them to what to do to "get their TB back" That xpDefault has continued to work seamlessly with the new TB update is something positive that I cannot ignore.

If Corey could give a quick status update soon after each TB GUI change that impacts Classic TB2, it would be much appreciated. And, as far as I understand, Thunderbird will now be slowing down its rapid release cycle for a while (at least until Firefox reaches number 24); which will be a relief for all of us. The fact that Mozilla has officially announced that it will concentrate on Firefox to the detriment of Thunderbird at least has a silver lining!

In any case, the developer's statement that Classic TB2's development will continue is good news. Looking forward to the next release. Thanks, Corey.

A little patience please...

TB17 has only been out a week - it's a bit early to assume the theme is no longer being updated. I assure you, it is.

Nice, but Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I really like the way this looks and works, but I have a problem and cannot find the way to report a bug. Been going round in circles for half an hour. Sorry.The top of my Thunderbird 17 window is cut off (no border) and the Minimize, Restore and Exit buttons are tiny and invisible in the grey strip.

Thanks for the quick response, Corey. Looking forward to giving it another try.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.0). 

Thanks for the bug report - I just updated to TB17 after reading this and have the same issue. A temporary fix is the Titlebar Tabs Cleaner extension. I hope to have something built in to the theme soon.

Perhaps Mozilla will even stop changing the UI around someday...

TB17 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

In TB17 setting "mail.tabs.drawInTitlebar" to "false" works also in ClassicTB2 1.1.0 though now there's an extra grey line under the systembar.

I'm an old school guy and I liked the way this add-on gave me back my Thunderbird. :)

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Neat and easy theme, straightforward an clear. Unfortunately lacking the chat icons. Would be great to have them added...

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.0). 

Well, it took longer than I'd hoped, but the chat icons have been added to version 1.2.0.

TB15 + classic TB2 theme Rated 3 out of 5 stars

For what its worth you can get this extension working in Tb15 by performing a max version hack on the install.rdf file contained withing the .xpi file
Look for the line <em:maxVersion>

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.0).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Fixed for now....

I've updated the max version, and the theme should install in TB15 to TB17 now. There do appear to be some minor bugs with the new version, though nothing major. Hopefully I'll be able to fix those soon.

If only Mozilla would quit changing the UI every few months...

TB 15 please Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I really love this add on as it is very functional and great to work with, unfortunatelly it does not work with Thunderbird 15. Please update soon as I have trouble working with the default theme. Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Really nice. Works fine in TB v13. Beautiful classic icons. Ergonomic, tasteful, not too flashy or 'cute'. Eliminates buttons above preview window, but no big deal.

Thank You!!!

Thunderbird 12.0 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Will this be updated for Thunderbird 12.0? Thanks :)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.2). 

The compatibility information has been updated, and it now installs cleanly in TB12. There are some minor issues that have crept up in the last several versions, and I'm working on a update to fix those.

Clean and tidy Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I agree this is just about the cleanest one out there, and I want this for my default Thunderbird 11. Although a make or break for me is the opened, unopened, new mail Icons next to the mail entries, that's the feature I always look for. It's easier to take in at a glance, and it would be good to recommend to the older set I work with as well, than that, 4 gold stars!

99% perfect theme! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Wow! This is just how Thunderbird should look by default!
However...I could not restore the message buttons using the method suggested. If only the theme would not disable them by default...is there any other way to restore the buttons? I'm using TB 10.
Thanks, and great work again!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.2). 

There's no way to restore the buttons to the message pane with this theme. They can be added to the mail toolbar using the method described, or by right-clicking on the toolbar and selecting "Customize..."

I would like to make this feature optional - if anyone out there knows how to do that, please let me know.

nice, but problem with tb8 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

nice look, but on the message pane all the buttons (reply, forward, etc.) have jumped to the left side.
Annoying - and I really don't understand why the tb developers have decided to torture us with the horrible design they did from tb 6 on. (although this has nothing to do with this theme...)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.1). 

Thanks for pointing this out - version 1.0.2 corrects this issue by removing the buttons.

Thank you! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a fantastic theme! Crisp, clear and brings back the TB theme that everyone seems to enjoy. Much thanks to the author!
