Created attachment 8755118 [details] activities indicator.png The activities indicator, in attachments, needs a restart of Thunderbird for working. Is it possible to make it available without a restart?
Indeed. Using 45.1 and 45.2b1. drop it in toolbar - blank. restart - it shows breifly then disappars. Same in safe mode. But I'm not sure this throbber is the least bit useful in Thunderbird. I have no idea which bug implemented it. And there is only one other report about it bug 639314. If it ever worked, then this report may be a regressoin.
Component: General → Toolbars and Tabs
p.s. I didn't find anything in Error Console
I think the precence of the throbber is only checked at the initialization of TB. When it's not present in the toolbar, the busy="true/false" is never set. It would be nice if it works after moving it into the toolbar. But the throbber will not be removed/moved multiple times. So to fix this would be low priority.
OK, it does appear to work - only visible when there is activity :)
