What about extensions that want to be able to put their buttons into the
*Titlebar* - like, for example, the 'Personal Titlebar' extension that I
currently use in Firefox, that will be able to work with Thunderbird
once it moves to the next version of Gecko? The extension author has
expressed interest in supporting Thunderbird too, but cannot until
Thunderbird supports the ability to move the menubar into the Titlebar,
which cannot happen until thunderbird moves to the next version of Gecko.

Well, that's great news (something I've been waiting for since these
buttons were forced into the tab bar).

*Imho, *all* buttons should *always* be movable to whatever toolbar the

This is funny... here you all are, arguing over how to gain a little
more UI space, and I *already* - with version 3.1.11 and two extensions
- have a minimalist UI that provides *far* more room than your screen
mockups, and provided working screenshots, and *not a single one of you*
has commented on or otherwise asked me about them.
