Thunderbird 8 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Still a great space saving extension and works fine in Thunderbird 8 on Windows and Linux if you tweak the install.rdf file packed in the .xpi installer file. Update the maxVersion line to <em:maxVersion>8.*</em:maxVersion>
I use muCommander to easily edit inside the .xpi package.
