Excellent but one bug and one Feature Request Rated 5 out of 5 stars

First, thanks for this extension! I still can't believe the devs removed this basic functionality from the core code.

Ok, the bug, minor as it is:

When you have Newsgroups, it shows 3 ?'s (???) under the 'Size' column next to each newsgroup. I'd suggest it should just be blank, or more properly, reflect the size being taken up ON DISK for the local cache for that newsgroup.

Now, for the Feature Request (sorry it is so lengthy):

There is a feature available in the Mailtweak 1.0pre10 addon (http://mailtweak.mozdev.org/installation.html) that I absolutely love...

I have a little video of my minimalist UI's for both Firefox and Thunderbird showing this in action here:

http://www.web2test.net/Minimal_UIs.swf

It provides the ability to hide the email folder pane (and the email header pane (and the dev for the CompactHeader extension has already expressed interest in adding this capability to it for auto show/hiding the email headers), and auto-show it simply by mousing over the left side of the window (where the folder pane would normally be). When your mouse gets right up to the left edge, it pops out to the right, and when you move the mouse out of the folder pane, it disappears again. This provides a huge increase in usable screen real estate, and is especially useful on netbooks. It would be nice if the 'hotspot' (in pixels) could be a config option.

One thing though... it would be great if it could be implemented in a (semi-transparent) Panel, the way the auto show/hide of the Tab bar in Firefox (provided by the Treestyle Tab addon) works in the above video - meaning, it doesn't SHIFT the message list/detail panes when the folder pane is displayed, it 'overlays' them until you mouse out of the folder pane, then it disappears again...

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.4). 

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I don't see the Account name on every folder...

But what I *would* like to see is a label for the actual 'Account / Folder' column (on the far left) that has been missing ever since the TB developers ripped this necessary functionality out. The extension has never added it back, and until it does, it will always be 3 stars from me.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1). 

Works great! Missing Account Header Label though Rated 4 out of 5 stars

One thing missing from the old look is the Account column header label - 'Name' is what was there in the old TB2 - or maybe 'Account Name', or just 'Account' - but right now it is blank and looks funny. Fix this and its 5 stars.

@Edward Gelb - actually, I prefer this, otherwise the space to the right of the numbers is wasted.

I'd also like to see support added for showing the space taken up by a parent folder showing the total for all sub-folders - but this was NOT the behavior in Tbird 2, so I don't see this as a regression or bug, just a Feature Request.

Thanks for the extension Joey! Imho, this was a dumb decision by the Devs to remove this code and relegate it to the extension world.
