Allow both mail
.tabs .draw In Titlebar and mail .tabs .auto Hide to be True when window is maximized
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:46.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/46.0 Build ID: 20160502172042 Steps to reproduce: On my netbook I always run Thunderbird in maximized mode. I enabled both mail.tabs.drawInTitlebar and mail.tabs.autoHide to provide minimalist UI on my netbook Actual results: The Menu bar refuses to draw in the Titlebar, apparently because I also have enabled mail.tabs.autoHide, apparently because a decision was made to disable mail.tabs.drawInTitlebar when mail.tabs.autoHide is enabled, due to the fact that one cannot move/drag the window around by the menu bar when it is drawn in the titlebar. Expected results: Thunderbird should recognize that it is running in maximized mode, and allow both prefs to be true while in this state the window is maximized.
So, if a user sets both prefs to True, they are both True when the window is maximized, but mail.tabs.drawInTitlebar flips to false if the window is un-maximized. Question though - maybe there is another bug that should be filed. Why/how can Firefox allow the window to be moved by the Menu Bar when it is drawn in the Titlebar? Maybe a more correct fix would be to fix TB so it works the same way?
So, upon revisiting this today, I opened bug 1336959 to allow moving the window by grabbing a blank space on the Menu Toolbar.
