When I open the “customize” menu in Thunderbird, I can add or remove the items from the toolbar. This way, I can reorder the buttons “write”, “reply”, “reply all”, or remove them altogether.
The Quick Filter Toolbar cannot be moved like this.
There used to be an addon called
quickfiltertoolbar, which made it possible to move the Quick Filter Toolbar around, same as other items.
I have made a screenshot to illustrate what I mean:
By default, the Quick Filter Toolbar occupies its own panel, under the main panel. What the addon allowed, was to move the items up to the main panel (purple on my screenshot) and move the various associated buttons as well (attachements, …)
This way I could save space, and I did not need a separate panel for Quick Filter Toolbar.
Unfortunately, this great addon no longer works with current Thunderbird
I am looking for a way to achive the same, by perhaps using
userChrome.css, or if not possible by editing the files
I have shown on my screenshot what I am trying to achieve.
First, remove the stupid useless buttons from the Quick Filter Toolbar: “Unread”, “Starred”, “Contact”, “Tags”.
And then, move the rest up (the pin icon, attachements, and the search field.
Lastly, get rid of the now-empty panel
Can this be achieved ?
