CompactHeader Has Bad Interaction With ToggleHeaders Add-0n in T-Bird 38.6.0 Puntuado con 3 de 5 estrellas

Compact headers worked (for years) in conjunction with the ToggleHeaders add-on.

The specific behavior (on Mac Version 38.6.0):

When I forward emails I expect the header setting to appear in the forwarded
email. Thus, when I expand handers to full headers (either using "View->Headers->All or with the ToggleHeaders "h" key), I expect full headers to
appear in my forwarded message. Such was the former behavior. Now CompactHeaders compacts the headers (to a medium length header) and doesn't allow me to forward the full header.

For this reason I've disabled CompactHeaders until a fix is available. Thus my 5-star rating is now a 3.

Not working in Thunderbird 31.8.0 [alas] Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

This has always been a great addon, does what it says, low overhead, no complaints.

It was actually created to fill a gap that was created in Thunderbird's development: you used to be able to minimize the headers directly from the program, then that useful feature was removed from one release to the next. Why? Are M$ employees working on TB? Seriously, did a group have a meeting wherein the topic of removing usability and user-friendliness was discussed and forcing unwitting users to sacrifice screen real-estate because of a perceived need for 'code elegance' or 'compactness' took hold?

Meanwhile, thanks to the developer of this extension, jmozmoz, compacting the headers to a single relevant line was the job of simply clicking one button and the state was remembered well between program invocations or computer reboots, whether Linux or Windburps. Now, a program update, apparently a minor revision [?] has left this extension out in the rain (v. 2.10 TB) works no more in TB 31.8.0 [alas].

Compared to the unrest in the world, this is only a hiccup, or possibly a small hiccaburp, but would leave the world an even politer place by somehow being fixed.

CompactHeader 2.1.0 not is not compatible with Thunderbird older than 37.0

Please either install manually the old Version 2.0.9 from https://addons.mozilla.org/thunderbird/downloads/file/285934/compactheader-2.0.9-tb.xpi?src=version-history or update your version of Thunderbird (preferred way) from https://www.mozilla.org/thunderbird/

CompactHeader now works in Thunderbird 38.2 Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

CompactHeader may have had problems recently (according to Nemo_bis), but it's working fine now in Thunderbird 38.2. It was updated September 16, 2015, so that may have been the fix.

It was a shock to see that Thunderbird 38.1.0 no longer had the familiar minus button to hide most headers of a message. No idea how people can use Thunderbird without!

This extension restored the familiar behaviour of versions up to 37, allowing me not to abandon Thunderbird.

well, this addon is a must-have!

are there any chances to cooperate with Gmail Buttons - https://addons.mozilla.org/pl/thunderbird/addon/gmailbuttons/ so it's line can be displayed even with collapsed headers?

Thunderbird 36.0b1 users, the current stable 2.0.9 doesn't work, but you can use the development channel's 2.1.0b3, which can be installed in Tb36.0b1 by fiddling with the xpi's install.rdf

With this extension, I was able to recover valuable real estate that was being wasted by the messages' toolbar. Does its job perfectly!

This extension works fine. But it hides icons for S/MIME reporting about the e-mail (signed, encrypted) even it does not hide ENIGMAIL/PGP information (signed, encrypted). This is not possible to file bug report (the Bugzilla says I'm not approved to file bug against this component).

Sorry but I cannot confirm this (with Thunderbird 33.0 beta and CompactHeader 2.0.9beta2)
Could you please post a bug report with additional information (Thunderbird/CompactHeader versions, screenshots?) to the support forum:

Most useful add-on I've ever had Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

I can't believe there are no native controls in Thunderbird for this. For anybody working on a non-massive screen (like, say, a mid-range notebook might have) the default header area feels uselessly bloated. This add-on fixes that right up. So simple, but it makes the experience so much better!

I would agree with a previous reviewer - it would be even better if I could choose to remove the header pane entirely. But it's still profoundly useful as-is.

I installed this on TB 17.07. It helps. However, I see no reason for even 1 line that has the subject which is in the pane above? Is there another add on that will completely eliminate the message header?

Also, in the mail tool bar. Why is the folder name in the tab? that waste at least one more line. Is there an add on to eliminate that.

Every line is important on a laptop with a smaller screen - especially when accessing email on a cloud server with RDP.

Thanks. I just moved from Outlook Express to TB because Win7 will not allow OE. Wish I had moved away from M$ a long time ago. Now if only I could move all my clients to Linux so I could get Windows off my computers.

Perfect for netbooks Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

This combines perfectly with the Address Widget Lines add-on to make the best use of small screenspaces in Thunderbird. (I use an Acer Aspire One.)

Great! I may have wished to have a bit more options about what to see and maybe to toggle between standard and compact header, but so far it's really improving the experience with Thunderbird on smaller screens... Except that it seems that the compact header defines a minimum width which will make my window (under ubuntu), when maximized, reach over the end of my screen (on a tiny netbook) - or is there some other addon incompatibility??
