I was hoping for a TL;DR version of the argument. In my daily work with Thunderbird I 
found that it is actually harder to parse out my own emails in threaded view than it 
used to be. I would already have hacked it, except that currently DOMi is broken and 
doesn't allow changing the document tree anymore.

I already opened a bug and suggested a patch 
<https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1267157> but for some reason the 
repackaged/ patched version breaks things for me (may be caused by removing meta-inf 
?), so I am currently unable to modify the DOM for testing a userChrome hack.

Unfortunately tools like console2 and Dom inspector are not maintained with the same 
urgency as my own addons - offered patches are often ignored for months before a fix 
becomes available to the public.

regards,
   Axel
