Steps to reproduce:

Total message count and Unread count not displayed in status bar.

In the attached picture: Daily (2023-05-04) above, TB 102 below for comparison.

All due respect, but I could care less about assistive technologies and "discoverability". It's no excuse to break the UI. That data was in the status bar for as long as I can recall, and I've been using Tbird for decades. Moving it elsewhere is a complete and utter waste of my time, and the time of the users I support.

While I'm sure that a lot of work went into the "Supernova" release, it's been nothing short of a complete nightmare from a UI standpoint. Moving the menu bars, etc. and requiring a CSS file to put back what you broke is simply ridiculous.

Downgrading is a nightmare too. Who is so arrogant as to redirect all the links from the release notes to the broken Supernova release from what someone wanted to click on and download? Unbelievable.

Worked around that nonsense and downloaded 102 again, downgraded, and I plan to stick with it for as long as possible. When I have some security issue compelling me to upgrade, if Tbird still looks like "Supernova", I'm moving to some other app.
