Steps to reproduce:

Updated to TB-115
Columns display and order is not what I need, so I change the default displayed columns and reorder some of them.
Last column is "Size"

Actual results:

Apparently I can resize the width of each column that contains text, which is ok, but I cannot resize the last column (in my case "Size", also text content).

I see that resize control appears on the right side of a column, but the last column is followed by the "columns config button" and no resize control appears.

Furthermore, if I move the "Size" column from last position to somewhere in the middle, I can resize it.
Then I move it back to the rightmost position and the width I set is lost and a very large width is automatically set, which I cannot change.

I can confirm this using beta. Can't resize the size column at all.
Still can't resize it when dragged to another location.
Same happens with total column and I assume other counts.
Pretty horrible.

Doesn't seen to happen with some of the "standard" columns like date, from, correpsondents

This is a known issue of the new tree view widget.
We were forced to put in place this limitation in order to guarantee stability of the various columns.
If you can't resize a column is because you probably forced the size of all the other columns, so the total table size doesn't have any more "empty" space to handle that column.
You should be able to overcome this issue by shrinking the other columns a bit, in order to regain more space.

Anyway, this is not a blocker and it can be fixed with some wiggling, not optimal and pretty annoying, but we will fix it in the next few months with a good clean up and improvement of the tree view widget in bug 1850893
