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.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you!! Worked immediately with no restart required. Now my tabs, which are showing what I have open, are exactly where they should be...directly over what is open! Also seems to play nice with my other extensions (QuickFolders, for one).

So glad I found this. Thanks again.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is good.
However, I want to display tab bar to the right of the folder pane and display always folder pane, if possible.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.0.0). 

Not what this extension is ment to do

In theory the behaviour you describe is possible. However, it has a very high risk of breaking something, as it would need to move MANY things around:
1. the toolbar above the tabbar, just like rise of the tools.
2. the tabbar into a new container, which also includes the content switched with the tab
3. the folder pane into the parent of this new container

Even this add-on did not get a full review here, with a smaller risk of breaking something. So I personally don't think this is possible with keeping Thunderbird staying stable, as there are various add-on combinations possible.

However, a dirty implementation without cleanuping when disabling, etc. should be easy to do, if you really want this write me an eMail - but I won't try to submit that as public add-on.

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Thanks for your add-on.
It really puts the menu bar back to the top above the tabs where it should really be - combining with your IgnoreAero theme works fine.

It's sad that this happens on Vista and 7 because on other systems like Linux and WinXP the menu bar continues on top, thus requiring this add-on on Aero OSes.

I'm giving this add-on 3 stars because despite wanting the menu bar above the tabs, I still want the mail bar to be INSIDE the tabs.

To do so, I'll have to use the userChrome.css tweak posted here

https://getsatisfaction.com/mozilla_messaging/topics/anyway_to_put_tabs_under_the_main_menu_bar_in_new_version

combined with your IgnoreAero theme.

Can you consider doing an alternate add-on for those of us that want the menu bar above tabs, but the mail bar inside the tabs?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.0.0). 

I'm assuming mail bar = main toolbar. If that is wrong, the next stuff probably doesn't make sense :P

As you pointed out, there is a way to do a userchrome.css hack for the menubar to go above the tabs. So there is no need for an add-on.
However, it is not possible to move the main toolbar above the tabs, to the place it was located in previous Thunderbird versions. This is only possible with an add-on, so I wrote Rise of the Tools.

I really don't understand your question, as there is a solution for your problem?
Also, I don't understand why you rate an add-on 3 stars for it doing exactly what it should do? That's not a way to get me motivated to help you with a completely different issue (which I don't completely understand), it's more a way to get me motivated to ignore your request. It sounds for me a bit like you try to force me to do something.

BTW: I probably repeat myself too often, but the rating feature is not for requests. That's why I set up a support e-mail address.

Exactly what I needed! Works Fine! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you very much. I do not like the tabs being on the top. This should have been an option similar to tabs on top in Firefox. Just to let everyone know - Rise of the Tools works fine with the Glow themes by Glowplug and and the QuickFolders extension. Thanks again.

I hated the tool bar below the tab bar after the TB11 update, absolutely hated it. Thanks rsjtdrjgfuzkfg 5 stars from me.

Brilliant! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Using version 1.0.1.0 on a Mac (Lion) with the default theme, it's given me back my 2nd toolbar where TB 11 had caused the dreaded text next to icon instead of below it. The main default toolbar is a paler colour than my 2nd toolbar or the tab bar, but I don't care if tabs are back where they should be and my 2nd toolbar has text below icons. Thanks so much for this!

Rise of the Tools is exactly what I was looking for when Thunderbird updated the version I was using to v. 11 and the e-mail toolbar started showing up below the tabs. Had there been some way to choose having the toolbar above the tabs the way it used to be, I would have been fine -- that option is available in Firefox. So, finally, I found out about Rise of the Tools, downloaded it, installed it as a Thunderbird add-on, and, presto, the toolbar is now above the tabs where I want it. Rise of the Tools is definitely a 5-star add-on in my book!

Thank you... thank you... thank you.

I was ready to start looking for a different email client since I hated the new location of the tabs. The developers should give the users the option to decide where the tabs are located.

What were the Mozilla guys thinking? Messing with us without an option to go back? Totalitarian developers! ;)
